That vit D deficiency. Did i see this here, but I read recently that San Fran has the most sunshine out of the year but has the highest levels of vit D deficiency. I like in Pumping Iron the scene were everyone is sun tanning and napping together, everyone needs tan buddies.

This is true. As a result this is what your average british person looks like



I know some really chavy girl who goes to this night so whenever she gets tagged on it I always look through the pics for some lolz.


The whole getting shredded so you can get topless at deep house nights thing and fuck sluts doesn't really work in the UK when everyone here is inbred as shit. It's a bit better in London because not everyone here is british.

Bench press belt: My guess is that it's 2.75" in the back and 4" in the front.



Normal Powerlifting Belt: 13mm thick, 4" all around. This is the one I just bought.



All belts are handmade by a Swedish guy.

You have to at least know you have them before you start lifting though. Even if you can't fix them, at least know you have them to work around them.

I found using sleeves and going deeper killed my patellar pain. IDK what your situation is but that could help

Okay guys, time to get my ass into gear. I've been reading around this thread and other sources, but would love you guys' direct advice, if you so desire!

 

I just signed up for my company's gym program. I work in a hospital and they have just redesigned their internal gym, it is surprisingly nice, open 24/7 and hardly anyone uses it. 

 

I currently weigh 272 and would like to be down to 220 in a year's time. I think that's a fairly reasonable goal with that time period. I've read Mark Rippetoe's Starting Strength and would like to focus mainly on barbell lifting like that, with 10-15 minutes of cardio to warm up. I'm thinking 4 days a week at about 45 minutes per visit.

 

My question is, is it better for me to focus on muscle groups, like leg day/back day/arms-chest day, or do more full body complex movements? I am mainly interested in cutting weight and gaining definition. 

 

FWIW, I will also be bike-commuting all summer, so that is going to take care of a lot of my cardio needs.

Buy the starting strength book, and do the program as described, where every workout is a full body workout.  Bear in mind that the most important factor in losing weight will be your diet.  I highly recommend counting your calories.

 

Worry about the program in 6 months or so... for now it's just a distraction, do something simple like starting strength and focus on diet.
