Yep. I plan on alternating between front squats and SSB squats as needed as they don't irritate my elbow much. Just starting with ten easy singles every day and going from there. This is on top of the light 4x/week volume stuff I'm already doing, so this might be a terrible idea, might not. I also need to actually find a not-terrible SSB first, so it's just front squats for now.FWIW, I had/still have a minor medial collateral tear, tendinitis and tendinosis. I think I...
Well, I only ate 4 eggs for breakfast today, in a tsp. of butter. Progress!Also, I am back on the every day squats. Feel free to quote this post and call me a dumbass should I ever do something stupid and hurt myself again.Cool. Do you have any recs for a particular model or price range to stay in? Do you have the 179 Anova one quoted there?
All fair points. Only problem is I am on a pretty strict budget at this point (engagement ring + wedding + car died ) and pork is pretty much the only meat I can afford to eat. Ground/whole chicken was on sale this week and I splurged a bit, but most days I am eating pork tenderloin. Looks like dropping my beloved 6 eggs in butter breakfast is the first step and going with egg whites is the sensible and obvious option, lol.OV - could you expand on the "source of the fat"...
On the diet note, how in the hell do people manage to eat less fat? My current macro ratio for the day is looking like 49% fat, 39% protein and 12% carbs (110g, 200g, and 63g respectively) and that's it for my daily cals. Obviously "lol don't eat 6 eggs in butter for breakfast fatboy" but I'm having trouble sticking to only one scoop of whey per day otherwise.Heh, no worries. FWIW I was speaking about accessory movements - big lift progression is it's own area for sure,...
Progressing on accessory movements like you've written really is dumb-proof. I love it. 6-8, 8-12, 12-15, 16-20, and 20-??? are all ranges I like working through.
Anyone want she-Powerlifts for their lady? Local Marshalls is selling them for 60 CAD per, or 45 USD.
Can anyone comment on cycling interacting with lifting? Primary goals are to lose fat and not be DYEL, get strength back, etc. But I've picked up a road bike recently and am really enjoying it. I vary depending on the week and the weather, but I'll generally do a few commutes to work, 40min each way per week at a moderate intensity. If not that, I'll do one 1.5hour ride midweek at a moderate intensity. Weekends I'll do a ~2hour cruise, lower intensity but longer...
Deus Ex was amazing and revolutionary for its time. The amount of references to the original in Human Revolution made me so, so, so happy and triggered all the nostalgia feels. Is it bad that I immediately recognized the code for Sarif's elevator in the prologue as the same code for the first keypad you use in the original? 0451.
Cool. Last I saw you had rotator cuff funny business going on? How's that working out / how did you ease yourself into lifting again?
Thanks. I can manage most things with serious compression on my forearm but certain things are definitely still out. The only barbell movement I can tolerate is a front squat so it's lots of bands, db's, and smith machine for me with reps going no lower than fifteen. I've always hated higher rep ranges so now it's kind of nice to have to focus on them.Silver lining... great learning experience: don't injure yourself. Am definitely much more appreciative of being able to...
