is it a bad idea to work out on a day you're doing an all day fast?
Just be aware of your body and keep the intensity moderate
You'll be fine, I fast once a week and it's all good
595 deadlift PR after squats today, boys. 605 next week
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?
depends on what kinda soreness
@Deleted User It's not debilitating, but it still feels like someone took a sledgehammer to my lower back
you could hit things aside from your lower back i suppose
like instead of bb rows, seal rows or something
Getting that concrete feeling in my lower back never affects my lift just my mindset. But that’s just my experience
You did too much.
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.
sounds like pain
i love it
will be there for an hour
1 pull-up a minute
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.
Have never used in all my years of lifting but have always thought about trying
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
Lol pulled a chill 475 today after 455 triple. Feeling good and followed with front squat, deadhang pull-up superset
When are you planning on competing next?
In the fall of this week so like 6 months from now
Is squatting 315 without a belt stupid?
I weigh 168 btw
But it's probably best to use a belt if you're worried about it
I squat beltless for almost all of my training
Especially if you're doing lowbar you should probably wear a belt above 85%
Depends, do you normally use a belt and what % of your 1rm is it
But I don't use one and have forgotten to tighten my belt for multiple lifts and training beltless has made it fine
I don't ever go above 85% in training either but that's my program
You run conjugate Saxon?
I run Sheiko programs
Meddling in our gains
I have been colluding with Russia
I know an old guy with a pacemaker who runs Sheiko. Idk how it hasn’t killed yet
