Both of my shoulders crunch and pop so disgustingly but they have for years. One popped out of socket years ago while I was changing shirts and I just kind of dealt with it until it went back in on its own, the other I blew out completely doing excessive weights on bench/overhead press that took over a full year to heal up and get back to where I was.

Only took me about a week to get back to where I was after a 2 1/2 week basically binge fest of eating day(s) worth of calories in junk food every day. And that's with even being more lenient on diet than I was before the holidays. Good to know I can go off the rails and snap back so quickly :aah

Mirror judgment alone shows me my binging didnt fuck shit up as badly as it feels. Back to Greek yogurt and a pound of protein daily. But the psycholigical effect fucking sucks.

I think I actually look a bit better, because I got to replenish my muscles so I look a little bigger

I ate literally what had to be 3X the weekly calories for a good 2 weeks with big days on and off for a month and nearly all of it was straight up trash like all kinds of pretzels, nearly whole bags of corn chips, candy bars, cookies, etc. I had carb bloat and water weight from that but otherwise it really could have done shit to me if I got back to where I was and maybe even leaner and increased some of my workload in a week.

I think a short period of dirty eating/high carbs can jolt your metabolism. There may or may not be some research backing this, but I cant be arsed to look it up

I know on Keto or low carb its suggested you take a day to carb up. On long term dieting it's used to grt your hormones back into better shape, and help metabolically. Makes sense definitely. Supposed to be something important to do as far as sparing muscle the lower you get in bodyfat.

My shoulder went to hell after my workout the other day.  Was standing in line at a grocery store and had sudden shooting pain all the way down my arm to the point I nearly had to go sit down.

Just one of those things that doesnít hurt until the swelling hits a certain point.  Took the last couple days off not sure how long I should wait.

There is but I don't think it's for extended periods. More likE regular cheat meals/days, not weeks and going complete off diet.

I've been eating like trash, especially hitting the sweets, and still have a ton of holiday leftovers. Once I burn through those, I'm going on a no sugar diet for two weeks.

There's a nature preserve literally at the end of my street that I used to hike on pretty regularly but haven't been in a 1 1/2, maybe even 2 years. Decided to go today because it's unseasonably nice out and wanted some fresh air. Did the full expert path.




Pretty decent little trek. In the past my legs, particularly feet and knees, would be dead by the end and hurt for days, I'd be covered in sweat even in the winter. This time I literally didn't break a sweat the entire time even with a hoodie and long sleeved shirt under it, and it being in the mid 50s by the time I made it back to my house. Followed it up by removing and installing a new over the range microwave by myself. Legs feel like I've been walking on air for 2 1/2 hours  :aah

Back on the grind and it feels good.   Coming off a 2 week food / drink / drug binge and the only pleasure my brain is going to feel for a few days is those sweet workout endorphins.

seems I pulled my right hip flexor. Not sure how, squatting too much, overuse injury? Oh well, I got 205 front squat yesterday. Going to ice it and massage it with a roller, should be back in action in a couple of days. I am nursing bicep tendonitis, so I need to take it easy on my upper body as well, so I guess I'll just take a day or two off from the gym altogether.

Did farmers walks today, just 225s but with the shitty gym clips. On the fourth round I spun too fast and the weight came off to my right, so, you guessed it, they came off on the left too comoetely unbalancing me. Like those gym fail vids. I blew it with everyone in the gym at that moment, even the weird 6'4 malnourished old dude that keeps checking me out.

My buddy who is a personal trainer / longtime fitness gawd said he estimates my BF% at around 8%.  Nice to hear;  obviously could be wrong, but he says at the gym he works at one of those companies that does those crazy body comp tests brings a machine in and does tests on people for only $40.  Told him to give me the heads up next time because usually you have to sign up and pay a monthly fee at those places.

How so?

Thought like 3% was too low territory.

8% is around the lowest most people can sustain I think. Once you get under that it gets dicey and is reserved pretty much for fitness models and body builders on competition days.

there's "too low" and there is 3%. If you tried to stay at 3% for a prolonged period of time your body would shut down and you would die.

Iím finally consistently sub-190lbs over the last three months since I moved.  (Sorry mups, my lady prefers me lean, so Bulking Boogie is probably done.)  and I think itís the subtle diet changes with my different routine as a family man.

Problem is, I need to buy a tighter belt.  All of my jeans are hanging dangerously low on my waist these days.  :-[

At 160 now, creeping down to 157. But I've been including stuff like raisin bran and high fiber bread in my daily intake. My lowest weight was me at my most carb depleted too. I honestly feel better including carbs in the form of very high fiber instead of straight low carb/keto.

Did my biggest walk/carry today: 100lb back pack, 3 45s hanging from a dip belt, 1 45 plate chest carry for a total of 325lbs, with the walk being somewhere between 90 and 100 yards.


And that was the first set. I had 9 more to go after that. :stahp I tapered down to 2 45s, 1 45, and 1 25, then alternated 45 and 25 like I always do. Did a set of 5 of clean and press after, then did half a mile on the treadmill while doing a chest carry without the dip belt and backpack.

Listened to this

and Buckethead's Albino Slug album while doing it. It was a good work out.

OK guys, I'm not a guy who wants to get swole or anything. Not gonna make charts and matrices to track anything. But I do have a question.
I go to the gym about 4-5 times a week. And I'm seeing some good results.
But I do have a question.
What I typically do is settle on the machines that are going to work what I want to work on that day. I do graduated reps (like I'll start at 80kg on one machine and do like 40 reps, then move to 90kg and do 35, 100kg 30 and so forth). Typically I'll switch machines so like I'll do my first rep on the chest press, then move to the leg press machine and do my first rep there then move back and do the second rep on the chest press and so on.
I find it gives my body time to recover and I do the reps easier this way.

Last few times I've tried just staying at a machine until I'm done with all the reps. This takes longer and I definitely feel it more.

So which is a better approach? I feel like I need less recovery time and can get through my workout faster by switching the area of focus after each rep. But I do feel that not switching around makes it "feel" more effective overall.

What say you?

Just do what feels best for you. If you're doing the same amount of work I don't think it really matters too much what configuration you do it in.

That's a max effort vs volume question. I feel, with machines, basically what Stro said. The benefit of what you're doing is keeping your heart rate up by minimizing rest times which will be good for burning calories.

Incorporating sled work on my cardio days. Basically 6 intervals for 5 sets. People were looking at me sideways. I then walked by a mirror and realized my face was fucking cherry red. It fucking takes your soul.
