RHET bros, what app(s) do you use to track diet and stuff? The GF wants to track her workouts and food intake using her iphone. Looking for something that is powerful and customizable and preferably free?
There's big difference between a guy doing 4hr cardio and also strength training daily (is it his fucking job or something?) and someone who sits at a desk/lab bench 10hr+ daily and is lucky to exercise 4hr in an entire week. Metabolizing carbs is fast and easy for the body and if they're available, that's what it will do. That guy will probably burn through most of those carbs easily just from his cardio, no big surprise there, so he doesn't have to worry about storing...
LOL. World record squat attempt in a mono-lift and still walks it out. Like a bawss.
2014 training is not going so well. Inconsistent schedule, travelling, random nonsense popping up... missing 1-2 workouts every week pretty much. Making some good tech revisions to snatch and C&J, but damn near zero progress in strength this year. Can't decide whether to do a cut back to 94kg class for next competition (and look good for summer) or try to hang in as an underweight yet slightly fluffy 105 on my way to putting on more mass to hit the long-term goal...
Certainly science and the easily available info allows the average Joe to have the best programs and diets. But I have recently been surprised several times at overhearing moderately sized college bros discuss their pinning habits. So, yes.... both.
Is this real life?
Everyone is right. Keeping feet straight(er) would increase tension in the legs (and torque in the knees) because they will not be moving in the path of least resistance. Subsequently, this tension is also likely to lead to discomfort. If I put you in an arm bar, there's going to be tension on your elbow and shoulder, and you'll also be screaming in pain. That being said, almost every champion weight lifter has feet pointed outwards, some rather significantly, based on...
Usual weight room was closed after work yesterday. So I went to the "fitness center." Infested with curl-bros. No leg workouts to be seen anywhere, unless you count leg extensions and calf raises. Dudes staring at themselves in the mirror for every rep. Does it even count as a curl when you use primarily legs, hips, and shoulders to get the weight up? Smells like Axe. Using buddies to spot and assist on cable machine triceps extensions-- I guess trying to set a PR. Is this...
Looks like the weight was a bit behind him and couldn't hold it coming up, fell backwards onto his ass and didn't push away from the barbell, which then crashed onto his upper back. Being that he was dumping, he wasn't braced for the barbell hitting him again. You can definitely see the moment when he legs just go "numb" for lack of a better word. I looked at other videos of him and he appears to have fairly sound technique. I often take ~300 lbs from overhead to front or...
I am a big fan of my Romaleos 2:(hitting extension on power clean)They're the best fitting shoe I've ever worn, period. Going on close to 2 years ownership now, only the outside heel is showing wear, otherwise they look practically new. Given my anatomy (high ratio of limb length to torso size), a higher heel would probably benefit me, but it's not a huge deal. I also like how they appear not that different from a regular Nike sneaker; I'm not much for gym swag or labels,...
