Someone buy some drop crotch stuff, hate it, and then sell it to me on the cheap smile.gif.

I think the slim dungarees have the same problem as the Keirin cuts when I tried them months ago. I just don't like the fabric. It feels way too lightweight and lays weird on the body, feels like a T shirt.. You've owned them in the past so maybe you can comment. But it feels like I'm wearing a dumpy pair of light girls jeans. Pleasant surprised was the Nyco Slims, I'll wear the shit out of these. The fabric is awesome very tough feeling and the fit is slim but the gusset is fuckin boss for sitting. They got pocket flair, but so does everything. I'll take two of those Nyco Slims at $98 a piece over one slim dungarees.

I liked the Keirin Cuts, but only because they fit me like slim dungarees fit slim dudes. You're right about it laying weird on the body if it's loose at all. Now that I've out grown my pair I'm hesitant to buy another in a larger size because they dont taper much and that's when the fabric starts to lay weird since it doesn't have much body.

I tried NYCO slims in a few sizes and the top block was just too tight in the ass and hips, didn't work for me, but I agree great pants if you can fit into them. The gusset actually looks nice as well as being functional. I think I might be done with Outlier unless they create a more articulated pant in a fabric that has some body/hold. Ironically the slimmest pants that they have, the Climbers, were my favorite for the single fact that I had full range of motion wit that 4 way stretch, but again weird fabric, doesn't lay well, and they're like wearing tights or skinny jeans.

I dished out the money for the Voronois and hopefully they deliver. If not I'll just revert to sweatpants.

Gothca. I must be shrinking then because I can fit into a size 35 slim dungarees. Surprised to hear the NYCO slims were too small because they fit me! I wonder where this weight is going because I'm still 5'7 190lbs. You do have some beefy quads from what I can remember, I'm mostly all ass and hamstrings.

Answer to this is I need to eat to 210lbs. I don't want to be fitting into stuff other people can't fit into, haha icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Well granted I only tried to size up to a 33 or so and this is when I was ~175-180.
post #35375 of 57266
Ah ok. A 35 at 190lbs might explain it.

For real tho since I've started tapering for my meet about a month ago and dropping the volume on accessory and doing heavy sets I've notice I feel more deflated...

How are you planning to fund it? Grant money?

We haven't really decided yet we're thinking a member fee based on a sliding scale vs. income but we also found some possible grants. It's such a prominent issue right now, especially with the first lady's health initiatives and whatnot. There also isn't really a general fitness type org that serves the city, which is what I want to expand it to be, so I think we'll be able to find financial support.

I'm also on the board of directors of a United Way type of fundraising organization and have a ton of connections through there, and could also use that org to raise funds.

About to get all you can eat sushi. I'm so excited I can't even be productive right now.

That's awesome, let us know how it goes.  There is one of those here and it's apparently really successful.

ITT one of the staple foods of fitness and bodybuilding is villainized.

Got some programming questions:

Has anyone here tried running IA SPBR 4x a week, like mon-tues and thur-fri on?

My current routine is laid out like: bench (upper), dead (legs, back), bench lockout (upper), squat (legs).
Doing IA spbr 4x would get me hitting back 2x a week as well, since rows are added on squat days.

Also, would you rather do a fewer number of lifts with more sets on compound movements or add in more assistance lifts with lower volume in compounds? Total sets and workload is the same.
post #35381 of 57266
Personally I try not to go over 4 working sets on a compound movement. My thought is if I can do more than 4 solid sets, I probably need to increase the intensity.

Also from a bodybuilding standpoint, there's a lot of muscles in the body that don't get adequately worked by doing just the main compounds.
post #35382 of 57266
Yup so you take out the compound movements and do dumbell kickbacks instead foo.gif

hah, just playin

Yeah done it before, a while ago though, easy enough to do. 4 days a week isn't hard at all if you're eating right.

Depends on the body part, on my leg days I pretty much just squat then either take off my belt and do more squats or front squat with some lower back extensions and hanging leg raises thrown in at the end of the day. For upper body days I like a lot of different movements, more so with back whilst working up to 1 top set. Why do you have a day just for your lock out?
post #35384 of 57266
Alright, but I'm thinking more like:

2 sets of bb bench + 2 sets db bench + 2 sets flyes

Vs

3 sets of bb bench + 3 sets of db bench

I'm training mostly for strength, not so much size.

Maybe I'm overcomplicating things. My questions is basically: more sets on the basics or add in more assistance to make up the volume? I've been doing more assistance lately and my compounds haven't moved much. I probably should just try the other option and see how I respond.
