2018-01-01 20:53:26 UTC  

Worked out today for the first time in over a decade....time to boost that T for the Ethnostate!

Powerlifting and gymnastics are a terrifying power. HOW CAN YOU STOP A MAN WHO CAN HUMAN FLAG AND SQUAT 4 PLATES

2018-01-06 19:22:09 UTC  

Howdy fellas. Just got a gym membership and I only know a handful of different workouts. Is there any comprehensive YouTube series or a collection of articles y'all would recommend?

2018-01-06 19:31:32 UTC  

Honestly it's a good idea to get with someone experienced to create a program that targets the results you want, and from there research each workout/movement to get down the form.

2018-01-06 19:32:18 UTC  

Watching yourself in the mirror is vital for good form as well if you don't have a partner or coach

2018-01-06 19:43:20 UTC  

@Farmer D Can you share with us what you're going for and what your current body condition is? Don't worry we won't judge you. No one in the alt right ever judges anyone. Ever.

2018-01-06 19:48:26 UTC  

6ft 180 lbs. very low stamina at the moment. Average strength. I want to get up to 200 lbs. be able to run 5 miles. Bench a full set 10 at 200 and squat a full set at 300. Get up to 100 push-ups and 25 or 30 pull ups. Basically just become all around healthy and flexible

2018-01-06 19:49:31 UTC  

Lose this skinny fat physique I currently have

2018-01-06 19:52:33 UTC  

Ok. I'm 6'1 and 185 so it looks like we have similar frames. Do you know what your current stats are for 5-mile run, bench, squat, push ups, and pull ups?

2018-01-06 19:52:57 UTC  

I can tell you that 30 pull ups is a pretty high goal

2018-01-06 19:56:05 UTC  

I can do 10 reps bench at like 110. 10 reps squat at 120. 10 pull-ups. 30 push-ups. I can only run 1 mile without taking a walk break in 8 min

2018-01-06 19:56:20 UTC  

These are all long term goals

2018-01-06 19:57:34 UTC  

we all have to start somewhere

2018-01-06 19:57:36 UTC  

My muscles and stamina have severely atrophied due to sitting on my ass being a NEET of sorts for years

2018-01-06 19:58:18 UTC  

Most guys here will recommend starting strength for you, and I will agree. That's probably what you should do. I also recommend eating a paleo diet.

@Farmer D What state are you in Rachel? We might have a member near you that can help!

2018-01-06 20:44:12 UTC  

I'm up in NorCal. Like an hour north of sac. I have yet to find anyone within a 1 hour drive

2018-01-06 22:42:09 UTC  

Damn. I'm about 2 hours away. I'd be happy to kind of give you a run down of everything some day but we would have to plan it out. I compete in powerlifting and work at a gym so we could work on making a program or something

@BigBadSaxon - ID Any tips to work more hamstrings/hips and less low back while deadlifting?

2018-01-09 01:50:38 UTC  

Just my two cents but starting with a tight deadlift position by not yanking the bar when initiating the pull but by pulling the slack out helps tremendously. Also, make sure that you start with your hips high, contrary to what bro scientists will tell you, high hips with just enough knee flexion to break out of a 'Romanian deadlift' is the most efficient way to recruit your hamstring and glutes.

2018-01-09 01:51:52 UTC  

A lot of time lower back DOMS is triggered by starting in too much of an upright position causing your hips to shoot up right after you initiate the pull.

2018-01-09 01:55:02 UTC  

Alan Thrall and Mark Rippetoe have good instructional videos which give a much more nuanced explanation

2018-01-09 01:58:32 UTC  

^^^Alan Thrall 👍🏻

2018-01-09 02:34:39 UTC  

Also, controlled descent is better than dropping

2018-01-09 04:09:48 UTC  

First night back after a 3 month injury recovery felt amazing. Blast some fashwave and pick stiff up and put it down again

2018-01-09 04:10:21 UTC  

Damn it feels good to be back

2018-01-09 06:34:24 UTC  

Welcome back

2018-01-09 19:30:28 UTC  

Is your lower back bothering you, @Pat-MA ?

2018-01-09 19:30:56 UTC  

Or do you just want more ham glute activation/strength gain
