Living until at least 90
At the ripe age of 31 I have made the decision to walk away from heavy lifting. My body after about 14/15 years of sport just doesn't want to do it. Mainly my right knee and lower back. It is a...
Came across this at the weekend and found it interesting:
Crawling is Better Than Deadlifting | Original Strength
Although it is a bit sensationalist, it looks interesting.
As someone with a...
What does that ton look like Mr Anthony?
Does anyone else find it nigh on impossible to lift weights and keep eating healthily?
I just find it impossible no matter how hard I try to stay away from the desserts.
I have probably put on...
Having worked my way up to 100KG (220 pounds) I am in awe of some of the weights people on this forum squat.
It feels bloody heavy so I can understand where the OP is coming from.
I am also at...
I did this for about 18 months not long back (4-5 years ago), come rain or shine. It was my first step on the healthy ladder for me.
I absolutely loved it. I did the same as you and 3-4 times a...
recruited a personal trainer to help me get my form correct.
I am doing a really simple program for the next few months:
Squats 2 warm up sets and 3 x 5 heavy load (currently at 95KG)
Does anyone recommend any specific exercise to get stronger hamstrings?
As I have a desk job that is my main weakness.
Deadlifting is tough.
I have been working with my coach to get my form better before going up the weight. Once he has shown me the right technique nearly every person in the gym I see deadlifting...
I struggle to get depth barefoot. The middle of my feet are quite arched. They are also quite wide.
I did start squatting barefoot but my ankles and hips were sore.
I was recommended Adidas...
Bloody hard this squatting business esecially if you have a desk job.
I have been recommended to get new trainers as my weight seems to get forwards and struggle keeping my heel on the ground....
By the way I am currently sitting at about 87KG now rather than 77KG.
Right time to make myself accountable and happy to get some input. Was doing a fairly simple routine based on Stronglifts and then upped my reps for a bit just for something different.
I am also worried about this. Sitting at a desk is part of my job, my job is what pays bills so I need to find a way to make it work.
I downloaded an app that tracks my daily steps.
Can I just add a cautionary note.
Don't attempt this if you have a bad back.
I pulled my back on day 10 (I think) last year and it really places a lot of stress on your body.
My back has not...
day 2 here.
not doing a weigh in. this is more of a car be experiment for me but my belt already feels looser.
Day 1 was fine. Had 2 jackets for lunch with salt and a bit of ketchup.
I am starting this today for a few days.
I think a few days a month of restricting food is good for the body and the brain.
We will see. Is Nuking the spuds in the mircowave going to make much...
I am just on the verge of being obese (29 BMI) according to the NHS.
I am currently weighing in at just over 200 pounds at 5/10 and I am probably in the best shape of my life although I am purely...
I bought some Irish Kombu and I just wondered how everyone cooked their seaweed/Kombu?
I tried boiling it but went quite slimy so not really appealing to put in salads?
I wouldn't mind it...
i had a good session last night with lower weights.
It didn't really tax me but I really focuses on my form. going to do this for a couple of weeks before moving up.
I currently squat in...
I started at 60kg fyi.
Only been doing it for about 2-3 months but i have before this always done squats in different varieties. Only recently started working with barbells and enjoying it.
No safety pins in my squat rack.
It is one of those sloping ones and it is quite annoying to put back in.
I am currently squatting 75KG which doesnt feel too heavy but I probably don't squat...
My gym has a smith machine and a squat rack so that I can squat.
I know the smith machine is a no go but I don't feel too safe upping the weights on the squat rack. I have nearly lost it...
