If you do partial squats you are gonna be torn up
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
Who needs pre-workout when you can take a taser hit instead?
Hell no I busted my ass lifting
Can't do that
What do you guys think of 1 rep lifting?
I've utilized it before on Sheiko programs
It got me on podium both times and Westside uses it too
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?
I also do 3 x warm ups
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?
I'd probably do more volume in sets if you're gonna do one rep
At 85% of 1RM
I usually work up to singles with a high rep low weight, then 60% for 5 reps, 70% for 3, and go to singles
I have bad squatters elbow so I use singles and low reps to keep the inflammation down
Or warm up before each lift?
If squatting and deadlifting same day I only warm up once but I still follow the 60 70 80
@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
Gotcha. Thank you!
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?
Focus on getting better.
Getting enough protein is good, too.
Protein and rest, bruh
i have bronkaid and caffeine pills to take before I work out, should I add aspirin to the stack?
i know that's done sometimes
Nah aspirin isn't necessary
Are you injured?
40 lbs less than last time I was posting anything. Damn homelessness
But Ayyy still the best lifting tank
Is it good to drink caffeine before lifting?
Will I actually get a better workout in, or will it just make me feel more energetic?
