Bulgarian splits? Pistol squats? More unilateral work?
Probably split squats and other unilateral work..

haha Im sure you meant poser. I find early Burzum and later Darkthrone are both good for lifting. AS far as old school black metal goes I like Gorgoroth for workouts too.

Today for my workout I was blasting Shrinebuilder and Candlemass actually. \m/

amon amarth http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wz-ExsTjafQ
august burns red http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=urPoGQeJzcw
korpiklaani http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NvyT6MQIvvw&feature=related
between the buried and me http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d2CqLwj5gTA
tyr http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Aw78NYAv05g
could never quite into the blackened stuff. i wouldnt really call myself a metal fan, just a fan of certain metal bands. hate 99% of metalcore but love the shit out of august burns red, same deal with death metal and amon amarth. really want to find more folk bands, falconer and korpiklaani and the like are so fucking cheesy and excellent i can't get over it. tyr fucking rules if you like a good folk viking tune - ragnarok is a brilliant album.
would love some recs on certain tunes, i missed out on amon amarth for the longest time because i listened to one of their worst songs at first and ignored them forever.

I love Tyr, especially their Danish songs. Ensiferum is pretty ace too. Nothing makes lifting heavy weights easier than feeling like a viking.

If you want a folk/viking aesthetic but dont want it so over-the-top I recommend:

I love Agalloch who can skew a little folk/viking at time ( and the singer was wearing a hawkwind tee when i saw em live)

I think Urfaust does a tribal/chanting thing really well

And Ulver's melodic stuff for when I really want a medieval vibe.

The one thing I really liked about Zyzz was that he was open about his steroid use.

Unlike his jackass brother.

I am thrilled with my bench press progress. I was on the verge of giving up 2 months ago and sticking with where I was.



Has anybody invcorporated jumping and springing in their weight lifting? I was reading something interesting and I might start doing a couple of jumping, leaping and medicine ball throwing exercises in my lifting day, there seems to be some research that indicates that it can be helpful to mix them

Been stuck at a 415 pull now for 3 months despite gaining a shitload of weight. I've come to the conclusion that I'm grip limited.

I think it's time to finally just get over my convictions and buy some chalk/straps and a belt. frown.gif

If anyone can help me out I would really appreciate it.

I want my 16.5" calves to be solid muscle, but I do not want a dramatic increase in size (no more than 1") what should I do?

I have started running again and I am easing my way back to the gym.

plate pinches and static holds are great, try 2x30sec for each. also, pulling with straps after having grip issues is like heaven.

Angerfist is the closest thing to metal I will listen to.  RAISE YOUR FIST!
