I was thinking about this while running this afternoon: is much rather look normal and be strong as fuck than look like a bodybuilder and not be able to run a mile.

I choose Kettlebells because I workout at home, and don't have other devices at my disposal. I know what I get out of it, so I don't really need other people blasting me for how I workout.

Too soon to see any results yet. Anyone else do this? What are your opinions?

@conceptionist linked to a study saying protein synthesis stopped a couple days after your workout. Guys on gear have it last longer. A 2-day split is all you need, 3 day max.

He's wrong.

Are you lifting on a platform? If so that's what it's for.

Depends on the person and their goals. Charlies a prankster
Power lifter. His goal is to be as much of a beast as possible in his weight class. Lower body fat isn't the priority.

Your priority is w/kg. Different ball game.

I don't understand why you think you can speak for everyone and their goals. My current goals are strength and injury prevention.

Please don't unless you want to fuck up your back, again.

Nah in the summer when i was blasting hard as fuck and pulling every day. I don't deadlift anymore, most recent was 405x10 deadstop. I doubt ill ever really deadlift again, not within my goals now, i just front squat for legs and do some lunges.

I wasn't even the first person to bring them up. I sell rice cookers for a living...

As for barbells with plates: I'm not arguing that they aren't good. I'm just saying I don't personally use them. Maybe I'm missing out on a little extra bit of muscle. Oh well.


Yes, that would be. Did you delete the post about how your life hadn't improved with your ability to deadlift 500 pounds? Or was that someone else... Clearly it's relevant in your case to be able to deadlift.

For those that don't get the difference between functional fitness and looking good for the girls (or guys, I'm not going to judge you) on the beach; read up on it. Or better yet, watch a "World's Strongest Man" competitor try to hang off of a pullup bar. Then watch American Ninja Warriors.

And for those complaining about lack of grip strength, work on it, for fucks' sake!

If this a thread about "random health and exercise thoughts", there should be room for all sorts of health and exercise thoughts, not just the ones the majority agrees with.


So now we are defining functional as just your goals, so everything is functional. Me wanting to be 190lb and 8% with a 27 inch waist so i can fuck sluts is functional because thats my goal? So what is non functional training for me, being ugly?

You pulled everyday?! Why don't you deadlift anymore? Isn't it a waste after hitting 550 and just cold turkey?! Did something happened? Touched by someone?

every 2 days that was an exaggeration. I got scared walking up to that much weight every time i lifted and i'd get really upset if I didn't PR because when you're blasting and don't PR it feels like whats the point.

Have you came off of the juice? I mean not cycling but actually came off of the stuff just to see where you were strength wise?

For the general public who has no intention of getting ripped or big, cardio provides more health benefits and generally less hassle than strength training. A little bit of strength training (maybe one or two short sessions per week) and they're pretty much sorted, for general health goals that is.

I don't know if less bodyfat is a good goal either. There is plenty of examples of people with low body fat that have worse health and sports/cardio/strength performance than those who are a bit fat.

If I wouldn't have been interested in powerlifting and aesthetics, I'd just train to maximize my health and then do whatever that leads me to that goal.

Have you ever stopped asking dumb questions, just to see how it feels?
