How do you guys burn out on chest and how often?

Try to do difficult Pushups immediately after or choose a low weight and try to hit a high number of reps.. I think the cable press is very good as well..

Got on the scale this morning and lost 4lbs since last monday weigh in eek.gif I ate horrible on monday and tuesday also.

 

I'm telling you bros writing down my macros changed my life for a lack of better words.

 

 

 

With all that said lets all bring in 2013 and continue to reach our goals. I'm officially down around 55lbs since starting my new lifestyle in march/feb of this year, I went from 230 to 175 as of this morning. I only want to lose about 10 more pounds and then start putting some lean mass on. Good luck to everyone on here wether you post or just lurk, and always remember, ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE nthat.gif

thought on crossfit training bros?

do it. just make sure you research the trainers at the gym. get QUALITY that you can use when/if you decide to ever leave them. Some trainers are *** when it comes to form and quality of movement. also be ready to dumb down a bit if you're already good on certain movements and lifts.

 

I'd also advise to stick with it for a couple months. go all in. drink the kool-aid and commit. see what you can do with your time there..if it fits you, then keep up. I see too many skeptics who only give it a day or a week..but we all know you will never see any sort of results in that amount of time.

 

have fun tho

for the chat about lifting shoes earlier I'll say what I usually say when people at my gym approach me about my shoes:

 

powerlifters swear by chucks. especially for squats and deadlifts. I tell people to get flexible and spend time in that "third world squat" to open up those hips and get that ATG. It can be done w/o lifting shoes. I don't need lifting shoes to get my *** all the way down in any squat.

 

I wear these:

they are not cheap. not at the slightest. Adidas actually makes a pair that's $200, which is slightly more than these. I don't use them to dead lift..but I do use them every time I'm in the gym. they're olympic lifting shoes..and I olympic lift pretty much every day (as in, I stay on the platform during my whole time there..aka i am that asshole who stays on the squat rack/platform for hours)

 

If someone comes up to me and tells me they want them for squats and dead lifts...I tell them how most power lifters just wear chucks. if you wanna spend $180 for some shoes to do two basic lifts, be my guest.

 

ps. I probably made NO sense whatsoever laugh.gif

I wish I saw all these good looking shoes when I was looking for my lifting hows. My DoWins get the job done though, but I wanna lift in some loud neon joints lol

You mean after you're completely done with the chest workouts?

my gym is actually doing regular hours today and tomorrow, so 24hrs. but I think I'm gonna call it a year. I need a break, my body needs the rest. I'll get back in there Wednesday. Definitely not looking forward to the holiday crowds though. That's gonna suck as my spot is already pretty crowded. I don't have a prob with people wanting to get their bodies in order, more power to them, just don't get in my way because you're still buzzing off that temporary New Years resolution high.

I would not recommend these for the average joe blow. Since you're power lifter it makes sense. I would say if you very serious about your squats,deadlift, cleans, etc and lifting for more than a year than go for it. I wore Olympic shoes in college for track and they plant your feet very well.

Luckily I have a very basic gym at my building: treadmill, hoist machine, weights. Been attending regularly for a month but looking to attend a better gym mid-february when the crowds die down. I miss those cardio bunnies tired.gif.

Just finished my upper body workout (beginner)
--Treadmill 30min
--Pushups 3 x 10
--Seated cable row 3 x 10
--Standing shoulder press 3 x 10
--Lat pull down3 x 10
--Ab crunch w/feet elevated on bench 3 x 10
--Reverse crunch 3 x 10
--Biceps Curls 3 x 10

Really had trouble with the pushups and the ab crunches, should have added them from the beginning mean.gif, will try this out for a month. Wednesday will be lower body. Friday IDK eyes.gif.

All you really need are the basic squat racks, dbells ,barbells, leg presses, cable pulldown /seated cable row machines, standing/ seated calf raise machine.

Decline/inclne/straight Bbell chest press, leg extension/ leg curl machine,a 90 degree angle seat(for your shoulder presses , lateral raises etc..), and adjustable seat for chest flies , incline dbell curls, dbell rows, skull crushers etc etc.... And cardio machines.



Though I love Hammer Strength machines because of the isolation to that particular muscle group they provide, while using free weights as their form of resistance, you can definately pack on alot of mass with a basic gym.


Don't stress it. Focus on perfecting all your basic, most important lifts.

Yea I hit those with dumbell rows, and adding the lateral shoulder raises for the sides.

Give this a try if you don't mind using cables for shoulders.  I love them for rear delts.

laugh.gif

 

Ain't it the truth.

 

Got a great chest workout today.  Wound up at the gym a lot longer than I expected to as one of my home girls was talking my damn head off. laugh.gif  Definitely a nice way to finish out the year.

 

For those who brought up ways to burnout the chest...dips dips dips.

 

I hit dips at the end of my chest workout and it has my pecs on fire.  Sometimes I'll hit pushups, but I like dips due to the way they hit your lower pecs, plus I'm not too big on decline bench press.

That's what it's all about.  What would you estimate your bodyfat at?  Putting on mass now wouldn't hurt, especially if your diet is on point.  You should have no problem burning whatever extra BF you may have.

 

I'm ready for 2013 bros.  My resolution is going to be to get in this thread as much as I'm in the shoe threads. laugh.gif

 

Great motivation reading this thread on a daily basis.
