Sup faggots.

What foot angle do you guys use for deads? Anything more than 10 degrees out and my knees have trouble getting out of the way of the bar.

Total's up to 730 for reps, pretty good progress so far.

My grip really seriously limits my deadlifts. Thinking about getting straps to remedy this, I really feel like with straps I could tack on another 50-75 pretty easily.

I've told this story before, but I hope people can benefit from my mistakes... I was using wide grip for deadlift because I didn't know any better, but it ended up strengthening my grip by A LOT. Pair that with chalk and then also hook grip and you're set for a long time.

Wide like sumo wide? Could help with grip because you've got a lot less distance to move the bar

Squat vid... 275, last set to failure. Sorry for shaky cam and vert. Nephew was recording for me. Appreciate any and all feedback.

I'm guessing you mean snatch grip and not sumo because with sumo you should be holding the bar at the same width as conventional if not a bit narrower.

Nice work, def a high bar squat. I'm doing it wrong, you getting nice quads and squatting more than me (not sure if i could get that for 10 or so reps you got). Meanwhile im getting a fat ass and big hamstrings which no one sees.

Anyone else love farmer's walks? Great for traps and forearms. I don't do shrugs anymore, don't seem terribly effective.

Unless you're really strict about it, the ROM is shorter with the DB press. I see most people pressing from their ears with dumbbells.

Dumbells+carpet-sliders = one hell of a workout ;)

 

I just got back into doing a regular work out and I had to improvise since I cant afford a gym membership at the moment

 

but trying to hold yourself up while doing face down snow angels with these BURNS.

not to mention doing fly pushups In almost any direction.

Just throw on $4 worth of carpet sliders with some JB weld and your good to go.

Farmers walks = juicy forearms. Also it's satisfying carrying around heavy dumbbells with no problem while the betas are all using straps to transfer 65lb dumbbells from the rack to their bench.

Best trap exercise I've come across personally has been hang cleans.

Best forearm/shrug exercise is picking up and carrying over 150 pound dumbbells without straps, and shrug them while holding a conversation with betas while they're mirin.

I make sure I throw in at least 3 sets of those a week.

Is there any such thing as a high GI/high calorie density food that is healthy & not loaded up with sugar

I'm in a bulk and it's easy when I have a sweet tooth, but when I don't I find it hard getting all my excess calories in. I'm already stocking up on pasta, potatoes, rice... and I usually kill about a sleeve of Ritz a day. Any other ideas

natural peanut butter man, so easy to pack in good calories that way.
