Only two back and no rows
2 pressing and no flyes
Random bicep and shoulder
Mostly front delt

2018-02-23 14:26:26 UTC  

For lower body
Only one compound movement
3 exercise isn’t enough

You write this yourself or did you find it?

2018-02-23 18:04:33 UTC  

I'm not a fan of 'upper body' and 'lower body' arrangement in general

This is my lifting routine for the week

Hey guys, I've received the suggestion from lifters many times now to take a creatine supplement. I'm trying to research it and I find all sorts of positive opinions on it from fitness magazines. I trust the people who have recommended it to me but I want to make sure I have every possible theoretical side of the story. The one concrete skeptical comment I got about it was from an osteopathic doctor I visited (for an unrelated issue) who said he admittedly did not know much about it but didn't see how it would help and said I might be concern about any supplement going through the kidneys. Beyond that I haven't heard any criticism of taking creatine supplements. The article I felt was most scientific on it was this one: and they say that all the literature they reviewed did not really find any bad side effects to using a creatine supplement, which was very reassuring to me. But I want to know if anyone knows of ANY criticisms of creatine use, just so I can have all possible sides of this issue. Thanks for your attention.

Mfw forget headphones so i run the half mile from gym to dorm and back. Nothing like a mile run pwo before leg day

2018-02-23 22:10:35 UTC  

Yeah but what was your time?

2018-02-23 22:11:46 UTC  

not fast enough

2018-02-23 22:20:43 UTC  

@peytonT#2360 @Deleted User how would you guys recommend I modify it? It was given to me by a guy I know who is really knowledgeable about fitness

2018-02-23 22:41:16 UTC  

^tbh yeah. 7 minutes easy run. Currently hitting 405 squat dubs

2018-02-23 22:52:33 UTC  

Did someone mention supplements?

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola I would do your own research, bro. Take the fitness redpill. Nearly every 'knowledgeable about fitness' guy will have different opinions

2018-02-23 22:53:25 UTC  

if he doesn't deadlift, he's probably a scrub tho

2018-02-23 22:54:02 UTC  

i do my own research but there's so much information out there it's hard to sift the good from the bad

2018-02-23 22:54:07 UTC  

I'll get to you on Creatine later, at work there right now actually lol. But long story short, Creatine Monohydrate or HCL is good as long as you're drinking water and aren't afraid of possible "Fluffiness".

2018-02-23 22:54:35 UTC  

and then i'm not sure what works or what doesn't and end up not doing anything because I don't know what works best

2018-02-23 22:59:34 UTC  

Take creatine

2018-02-23 23:00:06 UTC  

It’s the most researched supp out there. Normal monohydrate is fine. You should already be drinking enough water anyway

2018-02-23 23:00:36 UTC  

If you aren’t at 1.5 gallons a day and you’re active you should be. 5-10g creatine won’t destroy you

2018-02-23 23:16:32 UTC  

drinking water is kinda mainstream so i abstain from it

2018-02-23 23:22:41 UTC  

What about 1.5 gallons of tea 🇬🇧

2018-02-23 23:23:40 UTC  

1.5 gallons of milk

2018-02-23 23:31:46 UTC  

As someone who is lactose intolerant that might kill me lmao

Everything about this video sucks. Sorry but it’s what I got today. Finally about to eat for the first time

2018-02-24 00:36:27 UTC  

You had two more reps.

2018-02-24 01:23:46 UTC  

Was only programmed For two reps

2018-02-24 02:22:36 UTC  

@peytonT thanks for your thoughts.
@Suomi Stronk I look forward to your supplement-industry-insider insights

2018-02-24 02:23:32 UTC  

Would it be better to just talk in voice? @ThisIsChris

2018-02-24 02:24:28 UTC  


2018-02-24 02:24:41 UTC  

@Gaius Mucius Scaevola Can I talk to you in voice about it?

2018-02-24 02:25:16 UTC  

@Suomi Stronk i've got a friend coming over in a bit but i can hop in for a few minutes until he gets here

2018-02-24 02:25:41 UTC  

Gotcha. I'm getting in now. On mobile so excuse me there.

2018-02-24 02:27:04 UTC  

can you hear me?

2018-02-24 02:28:02 UTC  

oh shit my buddy just got here @Suomi Stronk

2018-02-24 02:28:07 UTC  

let me know when you're free some other time to chat

A few weeks ago I mentioned in this chat that my gym owner (former champ of some sort) has as a program for absolute beginners Day 1 of week Squats and Bench 3x8 work sets, Day 2 Squats and Bench 4x6, Day 3 3x8 Deadlift and Ancillary Deadlift exercises. I mentioned that in this chat and got a lot of comments that "Sounds great sounds like the guy knows what he's doing" and in particular when contrasting with SS I heard from here and other people I've talked to that "Yeah the 3x8 is better than Rippetoe's 3x5 for a beginner, you need to build volume". At the time it sounded reasonable, and I am used to the 3x8 sets now, but another friend who follows SS to the letter asked me why 3x8 would be better than 3x5 for a beginner. I could say "You need to build volume" but I realized I don't actually know what I would mean by that. Can anyone please explain?
