Recommended Posts

While we start sweating because about the war, let's switch the topic over to MANLIER stuff, mainly Lifting! A few questions, if you want to take the time to answer.

 

  • Do you go to the gym / do you lift? If not, why?
  • Favorite lift or exercise?
  • What personal goals would you like to attain in the near future?

 

 

If you want to share tips, or ask for them, this is also the place. Thank you.

i was very religiously working out at the gym up until the last month or two, when i was hit with a very demanding work wave. i still occasionally attend the gym though, and have desperately been trying to get back into my groove.

i like to do incline dumbbell chest flys in supersets as often as not. was working on my hamstrings a bit ago so i'd also get into the habit of barbell romanian dls in 4x10 routines also (workout stolen from @KBR).

my present goal i've been working towards like crazy is being able to squat 300. i was just recently able to squat 275 (granted, just barely [still killed me]) which i've been proud of but i've admittedly been in a bit of a rut ever since.

Started going to the gym and lifting a few months ago, but was put into hospital in October and advised to stop for a long while. Really wasn't my thing but a PT helped get my technique up to snuff and it actually started being pretty satisfying. Might go back when im well again

 

Favourite is bench because you really feel like a chad when you get a PB

Damn, hope you get better my dude. Do focus on form when you go back, ego lifts will just have you injure yourself again.

 

Take care lad.

What do the docs say? Can you workout?

I'd try out squats, shouldn't put too much strain on your wrists.

Do you know any good alternatives to overhead presses btw? They make my left elbow click really weirdly and I'm afraid of ******* the joint.

That's probably your tendon string brushing against the bone... do you stretch / warm up before workout? 

Either way, unfortunately there's only so many variations...

You could try doing side raises with dumbbells, that will work out your deltoids... do you use a barbell or dumbbells for the press?
