No. Besides, if you're doing the 40-day fast before I'd wager you're really in need of a decent meal anyways.

This is usually the case, especially with meal frequency.

Just got done working out six days in a row because I'm about to be gymless on the road for 8 days. I refuses to pay the ridiculous day rates at gyms. The only thing I can really do is pushups, abs, and run. I'm never gonna be strong again And this is how it's gonna be for as long as I'm at this job, I won't be able to keep a steady weekly workout schedule. Guess I can just be mr fitness and gym one week and do a bunch a running etc... the next week. Idk.

I think I'm gonna start doing some core work. I don't know how hard deadlifts and front squats are really hitting my abs so I think I need some isolation work. Any recommendations? I dont feel like doing 100s of crunchs and leg lifts.

In general, I totally agree with you, but this advice was specifically directed at Fuuma. The easiest way for Fuuma to do what he wants to do imo is to gain a little strength while cutting sugar and refined carbs from his current diet. Replace them with increased vegetables and proteins, but still in general keep portions sizes pretty tame.

Ok Cool the Kid starts using fewer dumb abbreviations or he goes back on my ignore list.

I would recommend a circuit of the following, done without rest:

Weighted Swiss ball crunches
Lying leg lifts
Russian twists with dumbbell
Weighted back extensions
Do 5 rounds

Change lying leg lifts to hanging leg lifts when ready. Throw in dragon flags when ready to kick it up a notch.

Finish up with a couple of planks held for say 2 minutes and a couple sets of chinnies for say 100 reps each. This pretty much is what I do 3 times a week and I have had great results. I got the routine from Ross Enamait's Infinite Intensity and as we know Ross is the man.

Give it a try

Buy Ross's Never Gymless. Nothing beats a barbell, but you can do a lot with virtually no equipment.

I've been able to resume shoulder pressing movements without any pain or discomfort. At this point, I'll credit that entirely to trigger point therapy. The main trigger point that was causing searing pain when pressed is now little more than a very dull ache, if that. I still work on it a few times a day and will do so until I'm not feeling anything when I press it.

sorry what

there are many benefits to squatting with a raised heel, it does not push you forward, it allows you to sit back further

Depends on your natural stance, flexibility, etc. If I squat in my Asiics, for example, the raised heel causes me to struggle to sit back and creates a tendency to feel like I am falling forward. Squatting barefoot or in Chuck's, it's much easier for me to sit back and also to go deeper in the squat. I know some people can go deeper placing a thin board under their heels and it certainly can put it into your glutes more. I certainly understand how a raised heel that is wood (like a lifting shoe) can work. Lifting in those tall-heeled, squishy Shox etc is another matter. You watch most guys wearing trainers and they end up squatting on their toes.

Hopefully u wont have to press on it forever to keep the pain off. Keep us posted
