I used to. I started feeling discomfort in my left shoulder (dislocated it yrs ago) and it would bug me doing everything from ohp to side raises even with light dbs. I havent done them for months now and replaced it with facepulls and band work and my shoulder feels amazing.

I work in a corporate environment so you already know what the dress code is.. If I could come to work in sweats everyday please believe I would.

So it's bad enough that I'm 6'6 and can barely find a shirt that fits my arm length (38-39)...but now every shirt I get fits crazy tight around my arms, and I can barely get my arms to my face to scratch my nose at times mean.gif . I've tried getting shirts sizes bigger, then slimmed down in the necessary spots, but that costs a ridiculous amount at the end of it all. ($70-$80 per shirt, then $25 to get it tailored). Just so 3 weeks later, I'll be back to square one when my delts start to grow and it feels like the back of my shirt is about to split open

Don't even get me started on the pants mean.gif Tight around the calves so everytime I stand back up after sitting down, I have to pull the legs down cus its hugged up around my calves mean.gif

**** makes me wanna rip my shirt off and scream

Have u tried indochino.com? They do mtm shirts and will tailor for free if it doesn't fit. They have deals all the time $200 for 3 shirts.

They do a bit of both. They workout forever. But most that do the sport work for the gyms they're at so they can lift for 2+hours. They do a lot of reps. Haven't seen any 5x5. Or like max reps yet. The bigger style body builders they do a lot of ego lifting but the physique guys def are more meticulous with their methods. A few pause reps here and there.

I've worked out with the #3 ranked body builder here 5 years ago and his workouts were intense. I thought I was in decent shape til I worked out with him and someone his size doing what we were doing was impressive

snatch grip high pull > upright rows

 

post #73836 of 75763
Today was the first day in years where I found myself in the "zone." Totally forgot I was in the gym or that there were other people with me. Didn't know what song was playing. Wasn't getting tired no matter how many exercises I did. I was like floating and going in rep after rep set after set. Suddenly I noticed and I smiled and I kept on lifting.

haha that sounds cheesy but I know y'all can relate!
post #73837 of 75763
I feel it.

Been dogging it lately cause I've been turning up too hard and not sleeping. Going through ****.

You know when you meet a new girl and you guys can't help but turn up all the time? Throws everything off for a while.

Just did upright rows yesterday laugh.gif. Might try to sub them for those snatch grip high pulls though those look promising

I sprained my thumb from basketball n haven't been able to bench press for a month. Will I lose my progress? Should I let it fully heal or lift with lighter weights?

Go lighter. Also; you could use the machines and just rest your thumb on top of the grips and use your palms to press. You wouldn't be involving your thumb at all that way.

Great advice, machines are the way to go if you still want to get that work in while you heal.

You will have lost some strength being off for a month but muscle memory will have you back quicker than you think with consistency.

post #73849 of 75763

Hi,guys,I know that a lot of posts start off like this.I have done my research and have a little bit of an idea of what to do.I am 17,and I am trying to get toned/buffed not really that big either.I've been trying to get abs too to no avail.I do 250 crunches and 250 torso rotations daily.I do have a healthy diet over 100g of protein minimal carbs and fat the ones I get are healthy and no junk food nor sugar.
I need someone to point me out to a routine/workout for overall body tone especially abs.I want the most intense ab ripped program I can get to get abs as soon as possible.I am not a fat slob trying to get abs in a week.I actually barely have fat,but I somehow can not get rid of the only fat on my body which is a little flab on my stomach especially the bottom.I can even see my ribs completely yet still have flab.

Wait till you see how it feels on the ankles.

My depth and rebound out of the hole has seen a big difference.

My ankles are my weak point, plus now i wont have to worry so much about being stable standing on those plates and just focus on the lift.

Do you wear em only for squats, or DL too? Been thinking about it for DL but if it aint broke dont fix it right?

Squats only.

The elevated heel isn't optimal for deadlift, #sockgang.

I don't think you should have an elevated heel for deadlifts. Better just going barefoot with those bro. Let us know how the adipowers work out on squats though pimp.gif

Do you count all of your macros? Are you consuming less than your maintenance calories? That would be my advice if you're not seeing any results with what you're doing now

Has anyone done the 6 weeks to shred by Jim Stoppani?

I was planning to do it but without all the supplements. Curious to see anyone's thoughts on it.
