Being on methylphenidate as a non-user for a big interview would make someone tweak the fuck out if the dose wasn't exactly right. Or it wouldn't do anything.

Yeahhh. I got dx'ed in grad school last year and it's honestly been life changing for me. I never knew i could be this efficient...

It also fucks up my sleeping schedule if I don't take it at the right time. Exhibit A....

Now that I'm training more as a supplement for Bjj do you think I should largely abandon back squat for front, zerchers and single leg work? This is my gut feeling but I don't know if I'm not seeing an angle someone else who understands body mechanics would see.

 

I would ditch the low bar squat in case you are doing it.

The upright position of a high bar/olympic style back squat is said to have higher carryover to sports. The same would probably apply to front squats. 

 

In general, I would adjust the weight training to be more efficient in terms of how much it taxes the body in relation to the benefits. That would mean limit the amount of movements you do to those that hit multiple muscles (so you have to do less volume for roughly same training effect) and to those that have some carryover to athleticism/movement quality/body awareness, etc. So stuff like triceps kickback and side laterals would be the first to go as they have basically no sports relevance. I think squats, lighter deadlifts, and some pressing and rowing would be good. Probably OHP over bench press as it is a more natural movement that don't tighten the chest as much. Maybe add in things like box jumps, jump squats (if your spine can handle them), etc for explosiveness.

 

In terms of volume and intensity I would avoid training to failure as it is very taxing for recovery, which will impede your sports performance. Many sets of lower reps (but not too heavy weight) not taken to failure will allow you to lift with high quality for a total decent volume without being too fatigued for your main sport.

Probably an easy one: What does it mean when you lower the weight for an exercise, but your reps don't go up significantly? Poor muscle endurance? I notice for some things, like dumbbell curls, I lower the weight from like 50 to 25 or 30 and by the second set, I still reach failure at about 8 reps. I only have smaller dumbells at home, so I wonder if it's a waste of time, not engaging all the muscle fibers, etc. -- or , since I'm essentially a beginner again, this will do for now...

What T shirts do you guys like (haha T shirts tank tops all day brug). Been a pain in the ass this year as most of all Ts pull a ton in the chest and biceps. Uniqlo Supima do OK, but I get real bored of plain supima T shirts after a bit.

It's so sad, nothing is fitting me. I've been wearing xl tank tops all summer and loving it. I'm not happy sleeves are coming back for winter.

I wear a lot of Uniqlo supima and some Alternative Apparel stuff

post #57114 of 57259
Uniqlo x Lemaire tees were great. Got 4 but think I should've bought some more.
post #57115 of 57259
Ah darn, I was looking at those lemair tees.yea supimas are not bad bit the arms pull a bit for me.

Have you tried underarmour/nike/adidas compression gear?
post #57117 of 57259
If he's complaining about sleeves pulling / being tight, I doubt compression gear is what he's after

On the contrary, the elasticity of those t-shirts/shorts/pants allow to perform way better. There  is never pulling or any restriction of movement.

I have had one gym t shirt for past year. Its like a uniqlo one with vents on it that I like a lot. But ya it fits like a compression shirt on chest and arms, nothing I'd wear out about.

I got some Topman tees randomly.... I should have bought 50. They were perfect but they don't make them anymore.

All I want in a tee is thin fabric, high arm holes, good taper and for the bottom to hit just below my pants waist.
