Re: Weight gainer seems reasonable

The gainer I got is 500 something calories a serving and I figure I could split the serving up half twice a day. I don't want a lot of calories coming from supplements, just enough to get me where I...

Re: Weight gainer seems reasonable

Weight gainer seems reasonable

I work at a hospital specifically in the Operating room. Mostly in spine surgeries which are very long cases (for instance 3 surgeries can take up my full 10 hour day). Breaks are rare and getting...

Re: Front squat form check

Man, what I wouldn't could kill for that positioning. I've been told by my coaches that it seems to be a flexibility issue and core weakness.

Would you agree with that? Also forgot to mention I...

Re: Front squat form check

Thanks, yea it's the same with my back squats. I have terrible flexibility in my ankles, calves and hips, pretty much everything. Anything else look terribly off? I'm not going heavy til I get my...

Clean form

One of my things I'm determined to learn is the clean, but I'm having the hardest time getting it in my head and being able to do it. I've had coaches watch and also slow motion recorded myself.

Re: Lifts and back soreness

Yea the high reps definitely get to me. But I also feel that soreness in my legs too so at least I know I'm not using all back. It typically subsides after a day so I'm assuming its just DOMS. Laying...

Re: Discouraged

Thanks bill. Good to hear I'm not alone in these feelings. I don't like the negativity I exude some workouts, but I guess it's motivation to be better.

It's funny you mention keeping a journal,...

Re: Discouraged

Well do typical stretching if it pertains to that workout, or ill come in early and stretch with a resistance band. I try stretching at home but I don't have bands and the only stretching I know how...

Re: How's my diet/adjustments
