You people have a weird idea of fun.

 

 

That said, I intend to start running on the weekends slash when I don't feel like lifting.

post #44104 of 57260

you are doing something wrong. you stretch your hip flexors and shit before running?  keep your toes pointed straight.  i try to strike with my forefoot, and take more short strides than big gallups.

i do both of those things, which have improved me a bit.

I've never been from the runners though.

I can do 10k easily right now. If I wanted to gut out a 10k on the day of, I'd sit on my ass doing fuckall until then.

Gotta stick to a plan and have goals to work towards to keep my mind in a good spot. Elbow injury has largely removed lifting from that, so running it is. That and the whole keeping-an-active-and-healthy lifestyle thing.

Getting good at running is incredibly difficult for some people (me) and it took me some in depth research to deal with the issues I had both mentally and physically. Most people have an incredibly low tolerance for pain and discomfort, but to become a reasonably accomplished runner, dealing with this is the most important. After running the same three mile stretch back from work every day with little results both in quickness, stamina and weightloss I started to do a little research. Two things have helped me tremendously and that is fartlek and long and short high intensity interval training. Combining these two exercises with my daily run and the occasional long low intensity runs have yielded extreme results in both stamina,agility and weightloss. But the most important thing is that in a little over 6 months running has become incredibly fun smile.gif

If you take so much growth hormone that your internal organs push against the walls of your abdomen then you'll have a bloated gut. That's like 30iu a day or whatever pros take though.

@virus646. 5'7. I'm a little guy.

I finally have enough muscle to look decent really lean

Back is twinging a bit today 2 days after doing front squats (didn't lift yesterday). I think it's my body telling me that it still isn't ready to give squats a go ferreal. I'll probably try again in a month or two and see if it feels differently.


Sad face.

Calculator for estimating your maximum muscle potential as a drug free lifter:

http://www.weightrainer.net/bodypred.html

 

No idea how accurate it is.

Found it through an old Omar Isuf video.

 

 

For me at 6'3, my max potential is estimated to be 240 pounds at 12% bf, with 50" chest and 18.5" arms :slayer:

Seems too good to be true for a natural though, because that's 50 pounds of pure muscle on me atm with the same bodyfat level.

 

Pretty fun to check anyway.

Don't really get omar isuf love. Dudes not that big, not that lean and not that strong. He posted a video of him back squatting 425x3 the other day as if the world needed to see his intermediate level lifting.

I find his mannerisms to be very annoying as well

He is like one of these



But for lifting memes. It sucks, because if not for him, his channel would be very informative and entertaining.

I never said I loved him, but I don't get why people have a problem with other guys sharing information, their lifting journey or giving advice based on experts recommendations or their own experiences.

 

I don't think his intent with his lifting videos is to impress you or someone else. He probably just wants to show that he squats too (many seem to think he's a complete bro) and that he's making progress.

 

If I don't like something, I don't watch it and don't care about it.

Yea 425x3 is damn strong IMO.
