I have a harder time doing stupid shit like lat raises than squats and deadlifts. They shouldn't be hard to do, if that's how you want to train you need to master these movements so you can do them in your sleep.

I find that girls really like goblet squats.

I'll leave it at that.

you mean delt raises? those are considered some of the worst exercises to perform (like, not fun)

Coworker is doing a biggest loser competition. Want to help her cheat by getting her all bloated and shit before the weigh-in. I told her to eat 1 cup noodle the night before and 1 that morning. Anything else you think or should that be enough?

If you want the maximum amount of bloat, take in 500+ grams of carbs, 5,000mg salt, and a bunch of pedialyte and water the day before.

In the morning, just eat as much dry carbs and fluids as possible up until weigh-in.

Unless she knows how to cut water quickly, tell her she's going to look bloated for about 2-4 days after that haha

I have the powerlift trainer and I really like them. I walk on the treadmill for warm up no problem. They look badass in the grey/black colorway and they're only $90. Not too bad.

would you feel comfortable skipping in them or otherwise exposing them to repeated flex?

i guess my question is, are they a bastardized trainer that takes cues from oly shoes, or is it a proper oly shoe? agree on that colourway though, looks sick.

They are closer to Do-Loses than to a Chuck Taylor or Nike Free

theyre not a proper weightlifting shoe if that's what youre getting at

probably do ok with the sort of mixed activities you described.

I bought them as a do all gym shoe. The toe box flexes easily when you walk or lunge in them, but they're still very stable and provide a good heel lift for squats. They are perfect for what I do in the gym.

Honestly I feel like unless you are looking to compete as a powerlifter, dangerous movements like the back squat + deadlift are unnecessary. You can get similar compound stimulation w/o putting yourself at risk for injury. I mean I was back squatting with ~265 until I gave it up. I find goblet squatting w/a 100lb dumbbell about 90% as taxing, but nowhere near as dangerous. From unracking to getting close to failure to racking again... shits dangerous.

 

I call bullshit. Back squats and deadlifts aren't dangerous if performed properly. The only danger comes from people being stupid by ramping up intensity beyond a level where the movement can be performed accurately.
