Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

Well, society made the decision for me. Every warehouse around is out of stock and websites are suspending orders/inquiries. 3 weeks ago I went to one in person and sat around with the sales guy who's on the national bench press team, and talked training and gear for 40 minutes. Didn't seem like the...

Re: Holding your breath: a measure of lung health?

My lady friend said she was worried about me being at risk for COVID-19 due to decreased lung capacity. As you might recall, I drowned five years ago. Of course, as a guy, I said, "bullshit. My lungs are fine." So she challenged me to hold my breath. I did for just short of three minutes. This, I k...

Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

I might go w. this rack instead - it looks more solidly built for $50 more: https://gymdirect.com.au/collections/squat-racks-and-stands/products/adjustable-squat-rack The bar + plates seem a tad expensive ($500), but if it's decent quality it's probably worth it. It's been a while since I've priced...

Re: COVID-FIT: Survive the Chinese AIDS

Those are really nice squat stands, and I don't know what prices are like in your neck of the woods, but here I'm sure I could find something more than adequate for half the cost (and to be fair, I have ZERO plans to lift anything over 315 anytime soon), leaving $$ for plates, barbell, etc. That sa...

Re: Wu Flu

The expert who went on Rogan basically said hand sanitiser isn't much good, but they're letting people have it understanding there is a positive psychological component to people feeling like they have control. Also, warm weather isn't helpful supposedly.

Re: Squat Assistance Exercises

Had my first run of the Spud Inc belt squat setup BD posted at a commercial gym I train at tonight. To get height I stood on the steps of the chin up station. It gave me adequate depth, except the steps were slightly wider than my stance. I felt like I was doing Hatfield squats though my positioning...

Re: Dave Tate's Not Backing Down

Just to clarify, Dave's had the hip replacements and I doubt was jumping around with Alsruhe? He has his ways which appear to work. Personally the giant sets don't thrill me. I dunno, you gotta work around your situation - but it does get weird. The likes of Tate and Darden always look bandaged and ...

I think for a dude with two hip replacements that it seemed pretty unwise.

I mean, how high was that squat, actually? It was like a 6 inch squat
Hahah yeah.

Re: A Fatty Special Report: One Year of 5/3/1

Well done, FC. 5/3/1 is a program I wanted to love. Always felt like I was doing way too little, and the AMRAP sets never moved the 1RM needle. The Beyond versions looked way better than the OG program. So many people got/get so much out of it, makes me wonder if I was just too new to everything whe...

Re: Decline Bench Press

Read a Westside article in which Louie advocates. On here IIRC some users don't feel quite as positively. I never do it.
