Sticky Thread Sticky: Daily Workout - Challenges and Victories

In light of the extreme focus this board has in regards to the 'body beautiful' (and the frustration that results in people not 'getting results fast enough'), I thought I would create a sticky that changed the focus a little.... This is a thread for posters to use to recognise 'every day'...

Any MI40 Ladies??!

I ran the MI40x and just finished it a couple weeks ago. It was completely different than anything I had done before and definitely pushed me to my limit.

recovery: CNS vs. muscle

When doing Stronglifts 5x5, there are times when the rest between sets could be as much as 3-5 minutes. That's a long time! I'll do it, though, when the situation calls for it. I recently read somewhere (can't recall if it was in a Stronglifts email or what) that the central nervous system takes...

Thumbs up Digging the compound lifts

After two months of adding some heavy compound lifts I have to say I wish I had started doing them years ago. Huge changes in just two months: deadlifts have to be my new favorite. My bum is higher and tighter than before, and my abs have also tightened up. More so in just two months than the...
