As a total aside, anyone have db complexes they like? GF and I are probably going to end up getting a few workouts in together either at my school gym or her parents basement gym. Db complexes are probably a solid way to get wrecked.

Thinking:

Stiff leg deads
Bent over row
Lunge variation
Push press
Db squat
Db swing
Push ups or floor press.
Planks or commandos.


Thinking 3-4 sets with 10 reps each with a 2 min rest.

 

What are you trying to accomplish?

 

Don't make it strength exercises for cardio.

I wouldn't do it unless technique is pretty solid. Best way to ruin technique is to do high reps until you are fatigued.

 

They're not worthless though. I've had good results with some complexes, but those were only 3-4 exercises in a row, either targeting completely different bodyparts to get a large volume in a short time (I did rows, step ups, dips) or for addressing a very specific weakness by targeting a muscle (in my case building up my weak posterior chain by superseting good mornings with hyperextensions and hip thrusts).

 

I'd rather do basic strength training and some cardio on the side if general fitness was the goal, but I can see the value if its for getting someone to start training and if time is an issue. In your case I'd take out the DB swing as its very technical.

More of a fun way to work up a sweat. More of an way to get an workout together when crunched for time instead of substituting it for an weight workout. I'll likely end up doing something before doing it most times.

Gonna be done pretty light weight obviously since that's the point of these!

215 lbs and starting to lean out.

I felt like I might be a little sick when I woke up this morning. I did legs anyway. It's maybe 2 hrs since my workout and now I feel really sick. I wonder if working out made it worse.

Adidas has put out two new weightlifting models.

 

 

Adidas Leistung 16

 

CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 90

Saw them today at the gym. Looks good IRL. The owner really liked them and favored them over the AdiPowers.

I usually feel better after working out if sick or hungover, especially after some cardio. No matter how you feel, it couldnt've hurt.

 

Eating really clean becomes exponentially harder after a while. Can't look at basic instagrams, have to force-feed myself salads. I've found that a high quality balsamic vinaigrette with grape must helps a lot. And just putting sauces on everything, been dumping chimichurri on meats.

Its probably more the calorie deficit than the fact that the food is "clean" that is getting to you.

Its taxing to be in a deficit.

 

Edit: Because you are cutting, right?

post #56426 of 57260

yea cutting, but cheating a lot with alcohol and such and doing a shitty job. I'm not good at cooking so my meals are pretty flavorless. Have a hard time getting through cod and chicken breasts, celery sticks with cottage cheese, etc.

It doesn't have to be a miserable experience.

 

Learn to cook by following recipes of dishes you like (with some substitutes for less calories).

Plan the timing of the meals so you don't get too hungry.

Adjust your macros for adequate energy during training.

Chose drinks with higher alcohol per calorie, if you want to be really strict.

 

How much calories are you eating daily?

Posts like that make me more glad that I've been following more of a IIFYM style of eating for the last five weeks and seeing better results in that time than the previous two months of trying to "eat clean" almost all of the time and subsequently failing to hit that goal a decent amount of the time.

Still eating stuff like chicken, lean cuts of beef, fruits, vegetables, and the like, but it's a lot easier to do when fitting something like a serving of Sour Patch Kids or a couple servings of fries as a side into my daily macro/calorie goal.

Y'all motherfuckers need to learn to cook
