Goal is to be practically crawling out of the gym by the end of my workouts

2018-03-01 01:49:15 UTC  

Workout for leg day here in a few minutes

2018-03-01 15:11:37 UTC  

Heavy bench day today calls for 800mg of Ibuprofen so that my forearm tendinitis doesn't make me drop the bar. Need to survive this so that I can make it to the conference next week

2018-03-01 18:00:42 UTC  

@Nick-NJ hope it goes well man, sounds rough

2018-03-01 19:34:54 UTC  

Survived and hit a nice overhead press volume PR!

2018-03-02 13:05:04 UTC  

is it a bad idea to work out on a day you're doing an all day fast?

2018-03-02 13:18:20 UTC  

Just be aware of your body and keep the intensity moderate

2018-03-02 13:18:54 UTC  

You'll be fine, I fast once a week and it's all good

2018-03-02 23:17:45 UTC  

595 deadlift PR after squats today, boys. 605 next week

2018-03-02 23:22:12 UTC  


2018-03-02 23:27:45 UTC  

Debating if I should lift or not tonight. Body is still aching from last week's back day. Should I take another rest day and hit it hard tomorrow?

2018-03-02 23:28:15 UTC  

depends on what kinda soreness

2018-03-02 23:29:12 UTC  

@Deleted User It's not debilitating, but it still feels like someone took a sledgehammer to my lower back

2018-03-02 23:29:24 UTC  


2018-03-02 23:29:45 UTC  

you could hit things aside from your lower back i suppose

2018-03-02 23:30:14 UTC  

like instead of bb rows, seal rows or something

2018-03-03 00:31:48 UTC  

Getting that concrete feeling in my lower back never affects my lift just my mindset. But that’s just my experience

2018-03-03 08:05:39 UTC  

@Suomi Stronk a whole week of DOMS?

2018-03-04 02:23:07 UTC  

You did too much.

2018-03-04 02:24:49 UTC  

Try this: death by pull up. Every minute on the minute you do a pull up and with each minute you do another. IE, minute 1 is one pull up and minute two is 2 pull ups. So on and so forth until you fail.

2018-03-04 02:26:00 UTC  

sounds like pain

2018-03-04 02:26:02 UTC  

i love it

2018-03-04 02:26:43 UTC  

will be there for an hour

2018-03-04 02:26:48 UTC  

1 pull-up a minute

2018-03-05 00:51:16 UTC  

Does anyone here use a landmine in their workouts? I did legs and back with it and it was one of the best workouts I've ever had. Wondering about others experiences and if deadlifting/squatting with it is worth my time.

2018-03-05 02:51:00 UTC  

Have never used in all my years of lifting but have always thought about trying

2018-03-05 04:47:00 UTC  

Took a few more days off cause ankle and made today my first day back. Nothing special just sevens at 50-60% squat and bench, deadlift 80ish% for 5 and rdls

2018-03-06 03:26:43 UTC  

Lol pulled a chill 475 today after 455 triple. Feeling good and followed with front squat, deadhang pull-up superset

2018-03-06 04:07:59 UTC  


2018-03-06 04:18:54 UTC  

When are you planning on competing next?

2018-03-06 04:46:00 UTC  

In the fall of this week so like 6 months from now

2018-03-06 15:56:10 UTC  

Is squatting 315 without a belt stupid?

2018-03-06 15:56:15 UTC  

I weigh 168 btw

2018-03-06 16:46:28 UTC  

Not necessarily

2018-03-06 16:46:50 UTC  

But it's probably best to use a belt if you're worried about it

2018-03-06 16:47:24 UTC  

I squat beltless for almost all of my training

2018-03-06 16:48:21 UTC  

Especially if you're doing lowbar you should probably wear a belt above 85%

2018-03-06 16:48:30 UTC  

Depends, do you normally use a belt and what % of your 1rm is it

2018-03-06 16:49:15 UTC  

But I don't use one and have forgotten to tighten my belt for multiple lifts and training beltless has made it fine

2018-03-06 16:50:15 UTC  

I don't ever go above 85% in training either but that's my program
