Im too fat for that shit. Maybe in like 6 months
post #47177 of 57312
I could do one when I was like 180lb, but not anymore and there wasnt much muscle involved. Well I probably could if I could do a false grip on rings, but without a massive kip I can't flip my wrists.

Cannot wait to bulk again, feeling horrific this lean, max strength is dropping off, but reps are still good. Haven't even had the chance to really use my ice cream maker yet, only twice frown.gif

muscle ups are pretty impressive but its a good way to tear your labrum unless you can do them without swinging/kipping (which not many people can)

I can chin up 6 x BW+120lbs, but I can't do a muscle up; I think there's some skill to the kipping technique plus I'm not willing to really go for it

Yeah, I've never really thought about them. But I have rings in my garage and don't do much on them other than some L sits, leg raises, the occasional pull up, dip, push up or inverted row. Walking by them today I figured is try them, and I only kept going because after the first few attempts I thought is be able to get it with some practice.

But yeah the whole kip thing is weird. I'm so used to doing dead hang pull-ups with a pause. All slow and deliberate, the muscle up is all momentum and technique. It would take a while to just separate the 2 movements and start getting really explosive with the pull.
I dunno, I kind of want to get it now that I've started but it's just as likely I'll never even bother trying again lol.

Why is your company meddling with peoples fitness and health. It's none of their business. It can actually present a problem with HR and open up a can of worms for labor law issues. Granted if you work for a small company I guess everything just stays quiet...

Today was the second day of hypertrophy second week of the first cycle of the Candito work out. Squats 250 lbs.x10 then 240 lbs. x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3 then sumo deadlift 3 sets of 8 then Romanian deadlift 3 sets of 5 then 25 lbs. V ups 4 sets of 30. Never did so many reps...My legs feel shaky...But it feels so good!

I taught myself to do muscle ups, i can get three in a row now. No revolutionary tips, just concentrate on false grip, and a little swing out from the bar/rings so you're pulling them down in front of you.

Recovery is moving along pretty well, in a sling still, but that's more for peace of mind at this point. Just going to do the recommended 8 weeks in it.

Would like some opinions on how to proceed from here.

Soon as I can, i'm getting back into lifting and dieting. Last time I was consistently in the gym was May, and I was cutting at that point.

I've been eating like shit, drinking more than I should. Basically I am not in a good way.

Should I pick up my diet and training right where I left off? Kind of feel lost.

Well your body probably won't be able to kope with the volume you were doing before nor will you be able to do the same weight so i'd start off lighter with less volume. Probably don't want to start back on a cut.


Last day of work, not sure I can realistically do this for 2 years. May look at other roles, but there aren't really any roles that would pay me enough that have horrific hours. I'd like to do something quanty, but even though I am quant as fuck I don't think I could learn maths/stats to high enough a level to do an actual quant role. Could go do like equity research, but that's kind of meh and it doesn't sound cool like IBD.

I predict you will own your own cake shop in the next 5 years as your true love is baking not banking

What are you trying to do

I would take a month to get my strength back and then get back to cutting. Only thing that sucks is it's gonna be hard to cut in an NYC winter. When I wanted to drop weight I would just commute by bike to work
