What is he snorting between lifts? Or is it a drink?
smelling salts or ammonia, it gets you pumped.
I'm more impressed that he decided to do some laundry too. Multi-tasker.
Even more impressive is Chris Hickson: [VIDEO][/VIDEO] Hook grip. And so casual about it. 800, rips it up.
Only way to operate a home gym.
that shit cray
just looking at him sniff it cleared my nostrils
Ammonia ampules are so good
I bench 245 for 5, about 20 more than I squat (((( Hip injuries suck.
Went to another gym today run by the local council.
They had a small weight room with brand new gear. It looked like nobody uses it. Everything was Hammer Strength. They had a power rack, but unfortunately no platform. They only had Hammer Strength plates which I think were bumper plates, but they were sized like regular plates. 20kg placed the bar at the correct height off the floor for the deadlift, but the others were too small.
The power rack seemed OK though. I did squats today and my form felt right. I think I have lower-back extension worked out now. I seem to have more awareness of what my body is doing. Still only used the empty bar — my arms were sore as shit from the press the other night and my flexibility needs some work.
No platform is a problem, or at least will be, right?
dude you need a rack a barbell and some weights. that's it. Deadlift from the floor.
I'd worry more about filming your form so you don't end up like I <3 Bacon.
I benched my body weight today (68 kg) for 5 reps, still not that tired. All this from a mere 40 kg bench in January.
Feels good man.
Anyone here have trouble with sticking strictly to their food intake?
I normally try to have only 1 cheat day but some weeks i have 2 days instead and feel real sluggish the next workout.
lifting after a cheat day (which I haven't had in a really long time, as I'm not cutting) is PR time.
Yeah I get what you mean.
Maintaing a cut (especially the lower abs) really is a matter of willpower & discipline.
So if anyone is interested, there's a diet floating around that was recommended to me by my power lifting buddys (successful powerlifters). I'm not posting it here for it to be picked apart by any of you guys, just some general information if you guys are interested. Training day looks like this;
Wake up - Coffee with heavy cream or coconut oil
Breakfast - skip altogether or 8 oz protein, cheese, greens
Lunch - 8 oz protein, salad, green
snack - cottage cheese almonds
post workout - 15g of whey, caffeine, coconut oil 1g, creatine 5g (note- no carbs pre wo)
post workout - whey isolate 15g, Hi-Gi Carb (maltodextrine ect) 30g, Casein 10g, Hydrolysate Whey 10g, leucine 3g, creatine 5g.
30 mins later - Large quantities of super high GI foods (the worse the better) and protein. Burger with french fries, cookies, apple turnover, pizza. Avoid low GI carbs.
continue eating high GI foods through the early evening/night
Before bed - cottage cheese, almond butter
