Yesterday I did squarshes with 135kg for 5x5. No pain, and I wasn't totally exhausted afterwards. Was kind of ecstatic that I'm handling these tonnages again without my knee giving me shit, I am pretty sure this matches my lifetime PB for 5x5.

I did aggravate it last week with some 90kg pushpresses here weirdly, but 2 days later I was fine. Sucks cause this is my favorite upper body exercise, but I have plenty of other options.

Been doing lots of squatting and pulling, continually setting a bunch of lifetime personal bests. Over the past 2-3 weeks I set these, basically a PR on almost every training day.

4x6 dips with 15kg on a belt
135kg paused front squarsh x1
130kg paused front squarsh x2
120kg non-stop front spaghetti quad tremors 4x4
140kg back spaghetti quad tremors 5x5
125kg x 4 front spaghetti quad tremors the day after
85kg push press from front 4x4 (mostly cause I went behind the neck for the last year or so and made it up to 91kg)
145kg no hook/no strap romanian deadlifts 3x5 grip still sucks

Not really a PR, but I've been doing 100kg split jerk doubles and triples immediately after push press, matching my best doubles from the front done fresh. Which means I should be able to jerk for nose picks way over that comfortably done fresh.

Bit of neglect towards the snatch cause my wrist has been feeling weird and cause it's fucking cold outside. Need more form-fitting winter clothes so the bar doesn't get snagged during fast movements close to the body. Will be interesting to see where my snatch and clean and jerk will be after I attempt to peak them.

i joined a gym three days ago, went first day, break second day, went this morning.

i don't know why i joined really, just one month. i hate doing weights it's so fucking boring. consequently i use the treadmills which have big screens and youtube and just metal the fuck out and run for 45 minutes, it's mad fun but the problem is i am already lean, so i don't know why i spent the money. like people are doing weights for their quads and hamstrings i mean ... why the fuck would i want oversized quads and hamstrings ? so i have been doing some pec stuff, like three nose picks of light weights, because i guess i would like a big chest and shoulders -- err, yeah this is my way of saying i just spent US$50 and i want to get my money's worth but not sure how. i guess a month of watching lyrics videos and live concerts while running and air guitaring is worth the money on its own actually

Paying to use a treadmill seems like a waste when you have perfectly good floor outside for free. :redneck:

There are less immediate/obvious pay offs from strength training beyond vanity and just being stronger and being able to carry things without others' help. Bone stuff like delaying and even reversing osteoarthritis and osteoporosis from age. Strong back muscles and abdomen protect the spine and probably have a correlation with less back pain. There's some research about muscle mass' and grip strength's positive correlation with life expectancy and anti-correlation with dementia and stuff, although probably not a strong case on its own to do it. If you play field sports like footy or whatever, there's a strong case for having developed hamstrings and quads because leg injuries are far less common in athletes who strength-train and you'll be able to kick a ball really hard and take a hit a lot better.

Ultimately do it only if you enjoy the process of increasing absolute strength markers. That means prioritizing big lifts over small-muscle/isolation bodybuilding type exercises and continually increasing weights and nose picks on a very long term basis. Doing it motivated only by the mirror is imho how you get bored of it really fast or potentially becomes an unhealthy endeavor. I can't explain in words how gratifying it is to go from not being able to pick up 90kg off the floor to easily throwing 110kg over your head in one motion.

Look into strength sports like strongman, powerlifting or olympic weightlifting instead of just doing the typical bodybuilding workouts. IMHO they're a more enjoyable and time-efficient way to spend time lifting weights than chasing an ever-moving subjective aesthetic goal, all the while still making favorable (and often faster) changes in physique.

Also, inconsistent training recently cuz of work but I squeaked out a 90kg snatch this week without really preparing for it:

I need to get into weight lifting. Not for my physique alone but also for my lowe back (pains), balance and posture. It also has a lot to do with mental health.

Like Lavabug said, paying a gym here is very expensive and not a place I’d like to go to often. Rather have things at home to use.

I’m a newb when it comes to this so looking for info.

1. Acquire dumbbells
2. Add weight
3. Pick up and put down
4. Rinse and repeat
5. ???
6. Profit!

But really, pull-up bars are great for at home. There's a bunch of bodyweight stuff you can do at home that doesn't require going to a gym.

It's literally in the video below it.

I did it again yesterday too:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BvpSnx2FknO/

Also recently set some lifetime squarsh, strict press, and push press PR's, most of which are on my IG. Getting in pretty strong shape despite my erratic training schedule:

strict press 70kg/155lbs x 3
power clean+push press 90kg/200lbs 4x4
muscle snatch 60kg/132lbs x 3
front squarsh 135kg/300lbs x 3

Repping 150kg/330lbs in the back squarsh again too, heaviest I've gone since my knee injury. Been climbing with the weights pretty fast over the last 3 months and I'm quite happy with it.

Nah. Haven't gone properly running in probably a year-and-a-half. I like to run early in the mornings and since I'm always leaving for work at 6:30 that kind of throws that out the gay man's telescope. BJJ is plenty good for cardio though.

So, lifestyle change is the only way forward and I’ve taken those steps. :idea:

Ran 6 km this morning again.

15 minutes weight lifting.
15 minutes HIIT.

Repeat later today and tomorrow with weights.
Running every other day or so, depends on how my legs feel and how warm it is in the morning.

Dumbbells and kettlebells, though... :thingy:

burn more calories than you consume and you will lose weight is probably the only dietary fact i am not skeptical of

it seems pretty clear though that the nature of the calories you consume matters for you health. although significant details beyond that i am sure no one knows

did you seriously just ask me that as if i would know the answer?

although seriously, i think the phrase "caloric restriction" is too vague for anyone to make any claim regarding it.

i suspect if you restrict too much they will actually die quickly :grim:
