Hi, how are you? Same.
Hi pals, I need help figuring something out that my googling skills cannot. My girlfriend is an archaeologist to be. This summer she’s revisiting a dig site that she worked on last summer. Being the best boyfriend I can be, I want to be able to help her despite the distance between us(California>Italy).

The dig-wide rule over there is no knees. You have to stand or squat the whole time. I’ve looked up lower back support, long term squat support, searched similar questions hoping for some key words. But all I’ve found are weighted back support for squats and other similar products. Does anyone here squat all the time maybe? Does anyone can help?

LGD-4033 review by Phyllis Wuffingkack - Thu, 18 Jan 2018 07:06:34 EST ID:1sTJgtu8 No.94627 Ignore Report Reply Quick Reply

In the middle of a cycle of LGD-4033 right now and wanted to give my thoughts on it.

LGD-4033 is a selective androgenic receptor modulator, or SARM, which is a long way of saying it sensitizes the body to its own natural forms of testosterone.

Bought 1g of powder online and have been dosing 10mg daily. The powder is only somewhat miscible in water, but dissolves quite easily in the presence of lipids so I have been using whole milk.

After three weeks, I can say that overall I have had a somewhat increased healing rate; bruises and injuries, especially muscle strain, seems to heal quite a bit faster than expected. Not scientific at all (although clinical studies have been done) but I am experiencing increased anabolism.

In addition, I have experienced a boost in mood and have generally more energy. Not significantly more, but noticable. Furthermore, no shrinking of testes 3 weeks into cycle. I will monitor this with interest to ascertain whether clomid is necessary for PCT, because forums seem split on how suppressive LGD-4033 really is.

Current thoughts: definitely worth the purchase

tl;dr: My gym coach/instructor won't help me with the form of Starting Strength exercises. I'll be in this gym only for one month, will I be losing time for doing only what he thinks is the best for me?

He's really into machine exercises mostly, some dumbells for arms and shoulders. I want to commit to SS as I'm skinny af and need a proper introduction into the world of using-your-body-in-a-proper-manner.

If I follow whatever he says to me, even if for only 1 or 1 + 1/2 month, will that hurt my progress if only after this I start SS? I'll change gym because I'll go back to the city where I work and there continue this journey. When talking to the coach of the next gym, I'll try to convice him using better methods.

TL;DR
Machines are useless, unless you are rehabilitating and need assistance with stabilizing a load. Use Barbells, Dumbells, Kettlebells,Clubs and Maces. Even Calisthenics. Just not machines. Your Instructor sounds like he doesn't know what he is doing NOR like he is meeting your specific needs. Ill list a few good sources at the very bottom of post.

Rant:
Machine exercises are virtually useless. There are 3 axis of movement. X, Y and Z. This is going to get a little rambly, and simplified at times, but please bear with me.

X is the direction you wish to work to move a load or exert force. Y and Z are the forces you have to fight to stabilize the load you wish to move. In every real world application of strength, you are resisting Y and/or Z with your stabilizers, when you are both moving and static, along the X plane.

Machines hold you responsible for X work only. They completely eliminate Y and Z stabilization and also distort the load you are bearing through:

1) Pulley Systems
2) Neglecting Stabilizers

This means, that 100lb load will feel more like an 80lb-90lb load and will not prepare you to deal with a real 100lb load as you will not build stabilizer strength.

i agree with everything you said except for recommending kettlebells and maces to a beginner. i think one should at least have a moderate foundation with barbells and dumbbells before progressing to the more awkward shapes to reduce chance of injury

So a few years ago I got into lifting, got myself pretty big and I've never really felt better about myself than those times, then a long term relationship happened and i kinda let myself go for a while. I did build myself back up about half a year ago but then i got pretty sick for a few months and lost pretty much all muscle mass and became very unhealthy.

My relationship recently ended and I know building myself up will make me feel better but I just can't find the motivation. Something that doesn't help is that I had access to testosterone and Dbol for both times i've built myself up and i can't afford to buy a course right now to do it again. This kinda makes me doubt the progress i'll be able to make and puts me off even more.

>How do you keep yourself motivated, have you ever lost everything you've gained and then built it all back up?

I used to be a fat slob, now I've gone through a year and a half of boring weight loss and spent several years enjoying actually being fit I can't go back. Sometimes though I go nuts for a week or so, and I think it's good in the long run but then I have to get back on the wagon hard for a while before I can go back to normal. Dieting for 4 weeks at the start of January and a couple of weeks here and there is worth it to not look in the mirror and hate what I see (some of it I even like a bit).

Today's pancake day and tomorrow's discount chocolate day but when I'm eating a lot not skipping the gym becomes more crucial. Encouraging my body to store fractionally more muscle and fractionally less fat probably isn't noticeable over 2 days but it adds up over a a dozen such breaks in a year and the aforementioned December period I usually notice I'm stronger in the second week of January. I figure that the gains happen by the 2nd but it takes a few days of not eating carb crash inducing shit to actually feel the benefits.

I used to do parkour ten years ago just around when I was getting out of highschool and I was, as told by others, "ripped." I never used weights, and my only exercise besides parkour was sit ups and push ups. As long as you keep the fat off your body you should be decently strong and well defined just from body weight exercises.

If you have access to weights and equipment then I highly suggest lifting weights instead because it is significantly more efficient at building a muscular body.

Where does the guilt stem from?

If it's health related I'd say eat healthy as Matilda said in reasonable quantities. Under eating is as dangerous as over eating. Get a good balance of nutrients. Take pride in what you eat instead of guilt. You can fit a few treats in but even those can be sensible and fine in moderation.

Sometimes I am in such a rush to get to the gym before I weight train, that I only have time to have a cup of coffee. Now this does supply me with the energy I need, however I have read that without a food source of carbs, my body will start to cannibalise muscle tissue?

Hi I'm that guy from some months ago who asked about vegetarians and creatine and being too broke to pay for the gym, have lost ~40 pounds in 5 months so going

good

but I got a job to be less broke, so sometimes when I get home, I can't drink 8 cups of water unless I want to wake up and piss frequently. The creatine bottle says to drink 8 cups of water when supplementing with it, but

how vital is that and what is the logic behind it?

whats up guys. i have limited weight lifting experience. my max bench was 155 with a barbell if that gives you any idea. anyway i havent lifted any weights in months but have been doing pull ups every now and again. i can do 8 real pull ups in the underhand grip, and like 2 or 3 with an overhand wide grip.

anyways I want to know a basic schedule to keep me in shape, and build upper body strength. i find doing it every day is counterproductive for me and most of the schedules i find seem to be like 5 days a week but i feel like 3 or 4 would be more ideal.

or would it be better to just do it whenever i feel the urge instead of having a set schedule?

Get good at the more challenging pushup variations: triangle, archer, maybe one day you can do one handers or Jack Lalanes.
If there is a park near you with dip bars or monkey bars use those for bodyweight exercise, I feel a bit weird doing this if there are other people around.

-Different pull-up variations
-Hanging leg raise
-Hang a good resistance band around it then put it around your waist and do planche holds/push-ups


Another thing to think about is different grips for the pull-ups. You can hang towels off it, that's a pretty cost effective way. Or get some fat grips which are good to have anyways if you're going super minimalist. I'd also consider getting a weighted vest for more strength work

It's possible to keep in shape (I did) but you'll probably need to be a stronger starting point. I do them daily although "intense" sets were alternated.

Develop strength for weighted pullups. (this made my lats my strongest point and really grew my arms despite the fact that I rarely did any sort of isolation for biceps)

Learn how to do supermans

Negatives

Variations, develop strong control of your body while on bars

I do a lot of "crucifixes" a sort of hybrid between dead hang leg raises and negatives

I've been doing a variation on starting strength I saw posted here once (I'd post the link but I'm on my phone) for the last 4 months. Definitely lifting more than when I first started, feel and look stronger, and overall happy with progress I've made. But I can't help but feel I should be making more progress. The idea that I should be adding 5 pounds a week? That seems unreal to me. I can't add weight that quickly. What am I doing wrong? I follow the workout exactly, except the eating part. Is that what I'm missing? I'm a student though, I can't afford, money wise or time wise, to be eating 3000 calories everyday. I haven't been counting precisely because that also seems ridiculous, I mean, I make a big pot of chili or spaghetti sauce, am I supposed to total the calories and portion it out beforehand? That just seems like too much work. Anyway, definitely eating more than I have in the past, and getting more than 2000 for sure.

So am I doing this half-assedly? If I don't want to commit should I just be happy with the progress I make? Is there an easy way to do this? Why am I unable to add 5 a week?

Can't answer the rest but it's not that you aren't committing, you just may not be able to commit yourself 100%. Not committing would be doing nothing, so yeah, be happy with what you're getting if you don't have the time to achieve more. Such is the nature of corporeal existence b

Eating healthy is cheap. Beans, vegetables, nuts, pasta. An entire box of vegetable noodles is $1 at any grocery store. Dry beans are hella cheap and full of protein and calories. Nuts, peanuts mostly, are generally cheap and full of protein and calories.

Eating is half the struggle.
