I like 4-6 sets of 2-3 or 4 for two similar exercises. Basically Sheiko.

 

Once I feel good with the weight I'm doing, I'll bump it up 20 or so lbs and drop down to fewer reps, then work back up to 8. I'll probably bump up to 155 next week and 185 in march. I can probably do 4x8 with 155 right now, but I'd rather have stuff left in the tank when I start that off again. I do other things for legs too and I'm planning on doing FS 2x a week so it's not like I'm not getting a workout. 

My main goal right now is to see how my body reacts to doing deads and FS at this point. I'm pretty surprised.

Never got this - why not just use a sauce pan? Seems easier to clean

Body can take a lot of beating! I've been benching every day for the last couple of weeks with great results icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

Rice cookers Ive seen can have the "pot" removed and cleaned. And you don't have to watch it.

If we ever get this fucking house I want a rice cooker, bread maker and 200 horsepower blender

It's just really easy to throw rice + water in it, then go prepare the rest of the dinner while it's cookin

How is that different than throwing a pot with rice + water on the stove though? I mean I guess you have to set a timer but jeez.

Sure. But the risks are a bit different if you've had two back surgeries.

My elbow is killing me again and it's from using the mouse at work not lifting. Go fucking figure...

It comes out perfect 100% of the time. Sometimes I mess up rice because I forget to stir, didn't add enough water or didn't simmer enough.

I cook my rice in the microwave.

My (korean) girlfriend's family swears by the rice cooker and i'm not gonna argue with the experts.

Rice is actually really easy to fuck up. Rice cooker rice comes out perfect.

Rice cookers do make a huge difference. This is the Zojirushi I have currently … about $450 or so depending.




this is what I had in college.. about $25.





Like anything else we discuss on SF, there is a range of options and quality.

+1. Makes no difference if it's brown, white, wild, short grain, long grain, Jasmine whatever. The good cookers can adjust the temperature and moisture content exactly for any type of rice. In short, yes… perfect every time.

$450 :uhoh:

 

I never have a problem with rice coming out poorly. Different strokes I guess. I also don't have the counter space for that.

Works perfectly with all rice so long as you figure out the water ratio and time required (depends on the microwave).

Yeah, my dad cooks rice in the microwave. It works great.

 

I suck at cooking rice. Worst indian ever.
