    Well the idea is that I don't have time to add anything. I'd be getting rid of one of my three weekly strength workouts. My def'n of a metabolic circuit would be somewhere in the range of 3-5...
  • Metabolic circuits, worth it? Incorporate them?

    So I've been lifting heavy since Aug 2011, and have dropped a significant amount of fat, and gained a lot of strength. I started with SS, went to upper/lower, and am now back on something like SS. I...

    All posts since my last post were awesome, confirming that I should probably be doing RDLs more often than I am. Today then will be high pulls, leg press, Ohp, pullups, RDLs, and a few sets of arms...

    Hard to tell without leg shot, but given fat torso and lean arms I'd put you in the 20-25% range. General recommendation is to cut to 10-15% before beginning a bulk/recomp. If you don't have a...

    Yeah, you're certainly right about that... I'm inflexible as fuark. I go as low as I'm able without rounding back. I get a decent ham stretch, but I usually don't get too far below kneecaps. That's...

    Of all the answers, this seems most spot on as a distinguishing feature. When you say knees can move, I take it you mean they can bend a little after the bar crosses them? Also, to you and the other...

    Distinguishing rack pulls from RDLs

    So I know one is technically for back and the other for legs, and they're supposed to be different exercises, but I can't help but feel like they're the same damn thing. Both have you hinge from the...

    It sounds like you're talking about "rack pulls," where you place the bar on pins below your knees and essentially do the top half of a deadlift... not "rack pullups," which sounds more like an...

    adding accessories to SS

    I'm using SS as inspiration, but I'm an intermediate lifter. Chins and dips seem to both go on deadlift day. So which accessories go on powerclean day? Sorry if this seems obvious, I've been doing...
  • I wouldn't do deadlifts each session, too much on...

    I wouldn't do deadlifts each session, too much on the lower back and also the CNS. Until you can squat again, try heavy leg press if that doesn't bother your ankle too much. Alternatively, as a...

    So I've finished my use of the two supps and I think the cut has been pretty successful. When I started out, I was in the range of 191-195 at around 13.5-14% BF. Over the 5 weeks or so I used the...
  • limiting pec activation in deadlifts and chins

    When I do chinups, especially weighted ones where I allow my legs to come forward, I definitely feel it a bit in my chest... not like I'm getting pec DOMS from chins or anything, but I definitely...

    Things generally are well; I just finished the L-Carnitine Plus last night, so I planned on a final post on the log today, but I didn't get to poop before leaving the house this morning and thus...

    Of the vids Chazzy posted, if you're looking for a single quad dominant BB only exercise, I would vote for either sissy squats or zerchers, in that order. If your lack of flexibility for front squats...

    I didn't notice anything too wrong with either lift, and I would definitely continue to progress. A few minor things though. I would agree that slowing down just a really tiny little bit on the...
  • Some DOMS from 3 days ago, heavy today or high vol?

    Worked out in the 5-8 rep range last Wed on squats/rdls, followed by 12 rep sets of leg press and GHRs (as well as some calf and ab work), and my hams still have some very very slight DOMS.

    Part...

    I get the skepticism... and given that this is a sponsored log, this is kind of a moment of truth for me. I said in my app that I would write a detailed log about my actual experience with the...

    Fair enough. I guess the point I was trying to make was more that the way different grips "feel" on the back is probably not all that important.
