  1. Xmas/New Year period

    Great hearing this advice Markos, cheers. No practical choice but to treat this period as a mini-bulk.
  2. Sore Calves

    Do them regularly and the pain will diminish over time. keep the workload high
  3. Hey guys (and girls). Couple of weeks ago while deadlifting, I slightly strained my right armpit/shoulder socket (hard to explain, it's in deep in the joint). Went to the physio who basically did jack-shite. Im now at the point where it hurts to do any vertical pulling movements (pull-ups) and is sore, but bearable doing horizontal pulls (barbell rows, cable rows etc). So, now I'm thinking of giving it a week or two's rest to recover and laying off the pulling movements. Will continue to Squat and military press, but in the mean-time do you guys recommend I stay off the chest work (pushing) movements as well??? Cheers
  4. 20 rep squats......explained

    I always 'feel' leaner/harder the day after 20 rep squats or heavy (for me) deadlifts.
  5. 20 rep squats......explained

    Last time I did a 20 repper (90kg), a headache came on about rep 16 and farked me for 2 days. when I went back to the gym a week later the headache came on straight away. Ended up having 3 weeks away from the gym and a cat-scan for peace of mind. Farking 20 reppers!!!!!!!!

    Monday 29/10/07 Squats 5 x 107.5, 5 x 107.5, 5 x 107.5, 5 x 107.5, 4 x 107.5 Pullups 7 x BW + 5kg, 7 x 5kg, 7 x 5kg, 6 x 5kg, 6 x 5kg Calf Raises, Seated Calf Raises Few machine rows. Finished with 2 sets of bodyweight dips, 16 and 8.
  7. I think it's a bit unfair to say that you won't lose weight (ie fat) jogging. When I used to play soccer, preseason would always result in me losing flab around my bellybutton. While I agree that there are plenty of fat people that jog, there are also plenty of fat people doing weights at the gym (fat momma's with pink dumbells). I think the keys are intensity (proper lifting/proper 'jogging') and diet. Proper 'jogging' should still farking seriously wear you out. Perhaps proper jogging is considered 'running' on this forum. My preason generally consisted of runs ranging from 50m to 2.2km and by the end of it, it should feel like your heart wants to stop. Having said that, I definitely agree that running/jogging won't build muscle, except for the legs (once again) the intensity has to be there. Also I don't believe for a second that all those 'fat people jogging' are just eating lettuce. They might say they are, but fair chance they're bull$hitting.

    Thursday 25/10/07 Chest supported rows. 12 x 25kg, 10 x 45, 8 x 55, 5 x 60, 5'ish x 60 haha Squats (fast out of the hole) 3 x 60kg, 5 x 3 x 75, 2 x 3 x 77.5, 2 x 3 x 80 Some leg presses (high reps) for a bit of a quad burn. 2 sets of bodyweight dips (10 reps) just to break up some of the DOMS from the presses the night before Few barbell curls ('cause they get the girls lol)
  9. Been gyming for about a month now....

    You don't have to have eggs every morning. Just limit your intake of grain-based/starchy (breads, rice, potatoes etc) carbs in the afternoon/night-time.
  10. Been gyming for about a month now....

    I think for a beginner, just concentrate on eating 'healthy' to start with. Like you have been, cut out macca's, KFC etc, soft drinks, alchohol, sugary foods, chips, biscuits etc, white breads and try not to gorge yourself on white rice. Drink plenty of water and eat plenty of vegies and lean protein and you'll see plenty of change. Do weights at the gym focussing on compound weights and whatever cardio you like to burn some extra calories. After a few months, reassess.

    Wednesday 24/10/07 Flat Bench Dumbell Press 7 x 55lbs, 7 x 60, 6 x 65, 6 x 70, 6 x 70, 5 x 75, 4 x 75 Dead Lift Was speaking to a regular at the gym about how his grip goes on the deadlift. He said that for his heavy sets he uses straps and offered for me to have a go. Gave it a crack on some of my later sets for something different. Now, don't get me wrong I want to keep working on my grip and lift with no straps, but just for a laugh and something different it was great not having to focus on my grip and just concentrating on grinding the weight up. (I'll put my flame suit on now). Previous best was 152.5kg for a single with my grip being the limiting factor. 3 x 100kg, 3 x 130, 5 x 130 (straps), 4 x 140 (straps), 3 x 150 (straps), 2 x 160 (straps). While I was farked from the volume, reckon I easily had another 10-15kg in me at least, but was worried about taxing the rest of my body too much. As with most people, grips obviously holding me back. Maybe some Farmer's walks are required........ Calf Raises and Seated Calf Raises to finish.

    Monday 22/10/07 Left my journal at home (I'm at work now haha), but I did these lifts last night. 1) overhand pull ups (4 sets just bodyweight, started with 12, think I ended on 7) 2) 4 sets of v-bar dips, 10kg, 15kg, 20kg, 20kg (think between 12 and 7 reps) 3) Squats - worked up to 110kg x 3 I think. 4) Military presses - 5 x 5 x 100lbs Simple workout which farked me
  13. The start of a new life

    Not sure how cluey your mates are, but if they're anything like mine, they'll tell you to do shite like tricep rope pull-downs and 56 different exercises for your arms. Don't listen to them and just concentrate on compound lifts (as detailed in the big threads on this site).
  14. Deadlifts

    Farking respect the deadlift hard. Cranked some out Wednesday and the whole back of me is sore from my hammies to my traps.
  15. Need to get fit fast...

    Practice doing the beep test.......a lot.
