i have been making awesome pocket money flipping gym shit on kijiji. two unique things: it's extremely undervalued by those selling ("im moving/its been a laundry rack for too long, get it out of my house") and fairly valued by those buying (internet lifting nerds), and the proliferation of old stuff that's been gathering dust in people's basements is much higher quality than what's being peddled in stores these days. at this point, i've pretty much paid for my home setup with the money i've made and have accumulated some nifty stuff that i'd never pay for otherwise, such as the aforementioned york bar, various attachments, fat gripz, etc.

if i had the space for all the stuff i have waiting to sell, i'd have a legit gym that i could charge admission to. two smith machines, two lat pulldowns, two sets of squat stands, a half rack, deadlift platform/stand/shrug rack thing, set of dumbbells from 5-70 with a rack, etc.


Is Kijiji Canadaland's Craigslist?

3x a week Legs, Chest, Dead. 4th day is just yolo arm work / delt work, easier day where I can go in and get shit done even after 10 hours of work. No cardio, will be on feet all day.

1st week beltless & no knee sleeves high rep 12-15 range
2nd week beltless, knee sleeves high rep 12-15 range
3rd week belt, sleeves high rep 8-12 range
4th week belt, sleeves, high rep 6-10
5th week belt, sleeves 8 sets 3 reps
6th week deload

Not really working with %s. Just trying to hit PRs comparing to last cycle.

accessory work complete bodybuilding, lots of variety in movement 5-7 different lifts for high rep.

before you say lol sleeveless training, I started doing it and think I've gotten good results from it. And I don't want to be that guy that gets to the gym and immediately puts on knee sleeves.

What dost thou think Concept?

Well, I think it looks pretty good. I like to hit squat, bench and dealift every session.

Like I always say, I think you could work with variations of the powerlifts instead of just doing them in their competition form. The first weeks could be less specific movements, like squat to a box with wide stance, incline bench and snatch grip deads off blocks. Then, you gradually get more specific as you get to the last weeks.

Once a week you should do the competition lifts to not detrain those movements but leave the other sessions for variations. In the last week you could get more specific with just doing the competition lifts all three days.

I don't see the reason to do 12-15 reps with the powerlifts. I'd start no higher than 8 reps at most, and taper down to 2-3 reps last week. I husr don't think the carryover from 12-15 reps is that good to a higher total. Strength is better built by lower reps than that. Do more sets instead.

And yeah, I also work without the belt and knee sleeves most of the time.

@conceptionist what do you think of Johnnie Candito's routine? It's relatively low in volume but pretty high in intensity during the last 2 weeks. Also, I like the variations in the routine it has. He also encourages doing optional lifts like accessories.

Which of them do you mean? I assume you mean the 6 week Strength Program, not the Linear Program, since you talking about the loading of specific weeks?

 

Overall, the structure is good. I like to have more variation in the compound lifts. Instead of just doing regular Bench Press 3x a week the first week, one Upper Session could have the regular Bench Press TnG, the Second Upper Bench Press with a pause, the Third Upper Bench Press with 2sec dead stop at pins at chest level. You should chose the variations of the squat, bench press and deadliuft according to what your specific weaknesses are in their strict competition form and where your technique breaks down. The above example would work for the average lifter that has his weakness in the Bench Press just off the chest in the bottom ROM.

 

Once again, I don't think sets of 10 is needed to get really strong. Most people I now work with 3-5 reps for the majority of the year, rarely going up to 8 reps to cause a sudden increase in volume and time under tension. 

 

I also think the volume is on the lower side some weeks. It will "work", no doubt. The problem imo, is when you reach a level that intermediate-advanced level where gains will come much slower. At that point you will have to lift with both a higher average intensity and higher volume if you want to progress. A lifter who is used to low volume programs will not be conditioned to handle a sudden large increase in volume at this stage. A weaker and lighter lifter will also tolerate more training better than a stronger and heavier lifter. Therefore its easier to condition yourself to a higher workload at an early stage in your development than later. Overall, I think most people into lifting simply train too little or they devote too much time to stuff that won't give them the best results for their invested time.

 

Honestly, I think you should read through the Sheiko forum instead of asking me these questions. You'll get quality information from the source there:

Have any of you guys messed around with any of the wearable tech tracker things?

My wife has been wanting one so I've been looking around at reviews and shit.

Seems like the Jawbone UP24 has the most reliable data and variety of functions, and the companion app looks pretty detailed.

She wants something to track calories in, macros, calories out, steps. And most importantly a motivational tool. Do any of you guys have experience with any of them?

post #47005 of 57262
No, simple version is I'm 3/4 caucasion 1/4 Asian. Spent a week tuna fishing in Spain, damn cardio. But yeah, that will work for a tan.

Ah, I probably should have said main goal is hypertrophy. Strength is just whatever, like I'd like to do 315 x 10 with a good tempo more than squatting 450 right now. So 12-15 rep stuff helps a lot. Only reason why i really do tripples at the end of cycle is when I did 20 weeks of high rep training I fucking hated it, learned that if I did just some heavy work I was much happier mentally.
