This is even tho I did a lot of rowing and band pull aparts every workout. Would not recommend because of the injury risk

How far can the Old Man go? (LOG) wannabemuscular 468 14 hourswannabemuscular (26904): @Bucky OTC pills don't do shit for me and I can't get OTC inhalers by me anymore. One of my prescribed inhalers is Albuterol. Works well. The other is a steroid which deals with the constant inflammation. I was thinking Clenbuterol might work well too.

Target weight, does this exists? Colossus 4 2 daysTamere02 (1435): @Colossus Im confused about what you mean by 'target weight'. You set your target weight to suit your goals. There wont be a scientific weight because there isn't a target weight. Weightclass athlete= weight they have to weigh is the target weight For anyone else there really shouldn't be a target weight, you gain or lose weight until your happy with how you look or strength/ weight ratio or overall strength or whatever your goal is.

4 WEEKS TO COMP LOG craig 33 3 dayscraig (829): Well comp was today. Finished first in weightclass and 1st overall. Set a new regional squat record which was my main goal and qualified for the British. No red lights at all 8/9 passed on last dead. Squats went as well as they could. Bench was tougher than I'd expected and I was fried on deads had a huge battle with deads 5kg off my pb but it felt great to get through. Here's an idea of how deads went. Video up soon ...

Scott Abels cycle diet. Irongoddess 13 3 daysthe1 (32184): @eknight - i fully agree with you on all of your points too, i just mean that he isn't a joe schmo and does have a pretty reputable back ground.. even though he may just hype up his diet with fancy words when its just basic carb cycling with refeeds more or less
whats a quality carb during peaking?? anteis99 6 3 daysFiremanSi (40411): @anteis99 Not sure man, but i notice personally when i did High Carb refeeds during a diet i would wake up looking at my best the next morning and my carbs varied and i just tried to keep the fibre at around 30g max 40g as it's hard to keep low fibre when taking in alot of carbs. But if u wanted to slam some fast acting carbs i'd do it... intra and/or post workout as thats when your body will soak them up best.
Smith machine for SS?? chibulls21 11 4 daysRawsteel (754): As said, just ask someone around you to help you unrack/spot. And i'm curious, don't you have a safety rack at your gym? If you don't, drag a bench in to the squat rack and set up the safety bars if you're worried. I personally have been benching twice a week for 7 years without a spotter or safety rack/bars and i'm still alive :p

Haven't missed anything as far as scheduled lifts and such. So this is a quick update. Last week we did our lifts at 80-85% of our usual poundage, and this week we're doing our lifts at 90-95%. Everything feels pretty good except for chest, that feels so off kilter. So this week and next is the time I have to square it away, then...

How's my bulking routine? Ralph 4 5 daysBucky (3106): leg extensions are an unnatural movement and put bad stress on the knees. shoulder press are fine, don't do it behind the neck though. and idk about the lat pull downs, I love them and find them quite effective in engaging my lats. get a scale, weigh yourself every morning first thing when you wake up after you pee, and probably should take a shit just for accuracy haha, but record your morning weight everyday. it'll fluctuate a bit but as the...
