Yeah, I know that entirely, yesterday I was doing shrugs and the bar is behind me and one guy and his "bros" were more or less jumping about halfway then swinging their way to the top... All I could do was laugh a little
Pushups Idk I normally just do them for about 20 minutes... Don't really count I go for time more than reps. And pull-ups... I really suck at, granted I am pulling up 260lbs, and I find them a tad difficult especially because with most bars I can grip standing flat with my arms kinda bent.
Just curious you guys talking about doing high reps in pull-ups, how much do you weight? Because IMO it would be easier to pull up 140 then 240 etc.
I would stay away from muscle milk products at all costs... IMO some of the worst stuff you can get, if you actually read the label on the stuff It has a crazy amount of calories, carbs, and a lot of fat. If you are just trying to gain mass then use it but if you are trying to gain lean muscle mass I would look for one without all the extra stuff (fat, carbs, etc.) and get one with a protein to calorie ratio of around 1 to 4.
I know I could go to any of a dozen "muscle" forums and get a lot of really intense answers from a lot of "professionals", so I figured I would ask and see what you guys think about a few things.
Starting off I am a big guy, Im 6'7" and about 290 at the moment, I have a dislocated knee so running is kinda out of the question at the moment. I am a college student and am not looking to drop a couple hundred bucks on some breathtaking new supplements that make me feel...
Idk about the price point but I know Isopure is what I use now and I have tried Way to many types... It has the perfect ratio of carbs to protein though and I believe its like 35g per serving with like 180 or so calories. You should try it, you can get it in small and large sizes.
I picked up these Sony ones for like $40 I believe, they work well for athletics. They have the ear clip and are "sweat proof" and can get quite loud, and realistically they were pretty cheap.
They are on sale for like $27 now...
