If you do partial squats you are gonna be torn up

2018-01-22 17:28:14 UTC  

And you will have bad inflammation

Anybody have problems with cramping during squats? The last couple of weeks, ive noticed cramping basically as soon as I start my warmups. It's not so bad that its caused me to cut short a workout, and while Im no worldbeater, Im not a novice either, most of my working sets are between 365 and 430. Im not sure why this has started happening, I typically stay well hydrated and the only change ive made is more carbs before workouts

How's your salt and potassium intake

2018-01-25 16:22:27 UTC  

Who needs pre-workout when you can take a taser hit instead?

@Steve - NJ is that you?

2018-01-25 20:06:16 UTC  

Hell no I busted my ass lifting

2018-01-25 20:06:27 UTC  

Can't do that

2018-01-30 03:34:51 UTC  

What do you guys think of 1 rep lifting?

2018-01-30 05:11:00 UTC  

I've utilized it before on Sheiko programs

2018-01-30 05:12:17 UTC  

It got me on podium both times and Westside uses it too

2018-01-30 11:36:20 UTC  

I'm thinking about switching my 3 x 5 squats and deadies to 3 x 1 on account of I think it will have lower impact on my knees, which are getting sore as I increase my weight. Think it's worth a shot?

2018-01-30 11:36:37 UTC  

I also do 3 x warm ups

2018-01-30 19:27:54 UTC  
2018-01-30 21:18:14 UTC  

What sort of warm up do you goys recommend before the 5x5 lifting routine? Currently I do nothing to warm up, just start the lifts. Is it necessary or not really? Opinions?

2018-01-30 21:21:23 UTC  

@Sonic I do three warm up sets - 5 x bar, 3 x 50%, 1 x 75%

2018-01-30 21:23:28 UTC  

I'd probably do more volume in sets if you're gonna do one rep

2018-01-30 21:23:34 UTC  

Like 5x1

2018-01-30 21:24:10 UTC  

At 85% of 1RM

2018-01-30 21:24:30 UTC  

Maybe 80%

2018-01-30 21:25:44 UTC  

I usually work up to singles with a high rep low weight, then 60% for 5 reps, 70% for 3, and go to singles

2018-01-30 21:26:50 UTC  

@Deleted User 3 sets of which specific lift for the warm up?

2018-01-30 21:26:55 UTC  

I have bad squatters elbow so I use singles and low reps to keep the inflammation down

2018-01-30 21:27:23 UTC  

Or warm up before each lift?

2018-01-30 21:28:01 UTC  

If squatting and deadlifting same day I only warm up once but I still follow the 60 70 80

2018-01-30 21:28:28 UTC  

@Sonic I mean 3 warm up sets for each of the 3 x 5 core lifts i do. So six total sets, three warm up and three working

2018-01-30 21:28:53 UTC  

Gotcha. Thank you!

2018-01-31 00:52:00 UTC  

I haven't been working out, because I've been sick for the past few days. I still don't feel like I'm in the condition to do it. How long until I start losing gains? Should I at least try to do some pushups in my room?

2018-01-31 01:58:20 UTC  

Focus on getting better.

2018-01-31 01:58:50 UTC  

Getting enough protein is good, too.

2018-01-31 01:59:00 UTC  

Protein and rest, bruh

2018-02-01 03:31:39 UTC  

i have bronkaid and caffeine pills to take before I work out, should I add aspirin to the stack?

2018-02-01 03:31:42 UTC  

i know that's done sometimes

2018-02-01 05:12:26 UTC  

Nah aspirin isn't necessary

2018-02-01 17:13:00 UTC  

Are you injured?

2018-02-01 18:59:41 UTC  

40 lbs less than last time I was posting anything. Damn homelessness

2018-02-01 18:59:47 UTC  

But Ayyy still the best lifting tank

2018-02-04 02:27:39 UTC  

Is it good to drink caffeine before lifting?

2018-02-04 02:27:54 UTC  

Will I actually get a better workout in, or will it just make me feel more energetic?
