whatever, I'm glad you feel that way, but I don't want plastic anywhere near my food if I can help it.

Considering plastic is vastly more similar to our bodies then a metal is what reasoning behind that is there?

You folks that are lifting for health reasons, do you ever put a cap on weights?

How would you train and keep up the enjoyment if weight progression was out of the question?

If You don't think all of the meat, vegetables, supplement ingredients and beverage from water to whiskey spend a significant time in plastic you are kidding yourself.

For some maintaining a weight, be it body weight or weight lifted is the goal. For others it's about maintaining a certain physique.

Yes, plastic has a low toxicity, but they put additives in it to make have wanted characteristics. Also the monomers used in manufacturing the main polymer. All this stuff decomposes differently when under heat.

Plastic makes it possible. It's in clothes and bed sheets. Poison is in the dose, so I'd rather just avoid it when I can.

After a week of no benching due to a pulled right pec, came back to hit 225x11. Was going for 12. Right pec still feels a bit tight. Gonna rest a bit more.

dumb question, my mp3 player ran out of battery so I had to squat without music, felt better, hit PR. Is it better to do hard lifts without distraction or varies?

Progression is almost never gonna be out of the question, if you're stalled out on your main lifts you can always hit more chinups or shoot for a longer plank or whatever.

I honestly feel pretty good right now tbh, esp given that I did 295x5 deads and hit 115x6 on standing OHP with a BB.

 

This is totally shocking to me right now, but I think my upper body and back are far stronger than they were pre-surgery. Wheels need work, but lets see how that goes.

 

I'll probably settle into deadlifting 1x a week and doing FS 2x a week (or 1x a week and doing lunges and bulgarian split squats the other week). I know I harp about this, but I think there's a benefit to someone like me deadlifting, since it's the exact movement that strengthens the area that's weak, but I'm just trying to figure out if it's better to go to a lighter weight and do it slowllllyyy or push up to 315x5 which I'm honestly at already. Like. I bet I could hit that tomorrow... Past that though, it just doesn't make sense. like... what's the goal.


That's what I'm confused about. I have no idea what goal to set for myself. Well, aesthetics and injury prevention are the primary goals, but what does that even mean?
