>gased out after 8 reps of 1 pl8 deadlift How to fix? Generic cardio?
An*me is gay
>>61310841>>61310852>He doesn’t have the 4chan gold pass.
>>61310911no, weighted endurance is much different from generic cardio. Generally 8 reps of deadlift is just too much anyway and especially at 135 you shouldn't be doing more than 5 reps.
>>61311029What is that called then? Weighted endurance? It isn’t cardio, it isn’t strength training.It’s weird that no matter what weight I deadlift, it completely gases me out. Surely there is also some sort of benefit from having more endurance for powerlifting
Any vegetarians post here?

Thoughts on EMS training lads?There's a job going near me I could probably get that has a business model revolving around it. Looks interesting but I'm wary because they make claims like>a single 20 minute exercise session per week is enough!
>>61311142"conditioning" I guessbut honestly I trained nothing but heavy singles for years then spent a month on conditioning and it didn't take long to catch up. Went from 8 to 12 to 15 reps on 515 trap bar then went 14 reps at ~550 in comp. I don't know if training it specifically is worthwhile unless you actually need it in particular.
>>61311142Usually, it's called GPP, which is a sack in which every non-specific training is thrown in.Depending on what you're specifically after, there's lots of things you can do, but increasing any aspect of general fitness will have a bit of carry over. As an example, running 5k 2-3 days per week won't improve your general anaerobic resistance in a noticeable way, but will make you gas out a bit less deadlifting 1pl8 for 8 reps. Not what I'd recommend if you want to improve your anaerobic resistance or your work capacity anyway, though.

>>61311665What counts as paleo?
>>61311697my dick, now suck it bald fat boy
>>61311683>eat whatever as long as its not processed foodsthat plus no milk, only fruit allowed is stuff like berries olives and tomatoes, and 100% of grains and beans are haram. pretty solid choices but i'm never going to stop drinking milk
>>61311637if I was less poor I would unironically go full MONGOL, just ridiculous amounts of beef prime cuts every day. literally never get tired of itBUT... if it was the case that low carbs actually were show to significantly hinder my lifts then I guess I would add them back int. sincerely ibs bro tired of a ripped up digestive tract and bloodied shits
>>61311730>no milkHa ha, don't think so, I'm white. Evolution comes at you fast, I'm not eating like homo habilis either>>61311742>low carbs actually were show to significantly hinder my liftsyeah I'm not wrestling without carbs lol>>61311745so, food
What happens if you fail a squat with your hands like this?
>>61311742planning on doing snake diet this summer and i'm gonna be eating around a pound of steak, 4 pastured eggs, and a few pints of milk for my refeed every other day, fried in butter. the meat egg and dairy diet is truly patrician
>>61311810Just drop it?
>>61311800>so, foodyeah but instead of>stop eating lab-brewed chemicalsthey sell it as>eat like a CAVEMANso the normies think it's cool
>>61311811Probably solid for a cut... don't forget to squeeze a lime for vitamin C
>>61311832acidic foods are haram i'll just eat a multi-vitamin
>>61311829grug no eat box food. longnose tribe no inspect grug food and draw on box
>>61311863The shit you people come up with just to avoid eating food...
>>61311810Let it roll down your spine cracking each and every vertebra.Or just drop it
>>61311810the trick is to use figure-8 staps. Then you CAN'T fail.
>>61311863Pills and powders are haram, I'll just have a plant
>>61312142plants are yucky

>>61312510Yeah, I'm catching back up to figolas in both BW and squatcelling
>>61311810dont max squat unless you can get side spots>>61312196everytime i watch one of your videos i get annoyed that powerlifting hasn't figured out how to do cameras that point directly at the crease. fucking ziptie a webcam to the uprights
>>61312956I always thought that there should be some system using colored dots or magnets or lasers or whatever, but then I remember reading about automated umpires in baseball and how it just became about fooling the camera instead of the game
>>61312956>fucking ziptie a webcam to the uprightsbehold the future of powerlifting depth judgement
RAPIDLY APPROACHING HINDENBURG MODE>>61312956Shame, it's so much more comfortable
>>61313070>HINDENBURG MODEThat sounds ominous
>>61313117>he's not aware of the originator of said bulk routine
>>61313004>>61313021i wasn't thinking about getting rid of the judges, but more for the people watching it after the event. would give more credibility to some of the more money based events. vlad's 525kg is a good example. for examples, i haven't seen a crease angle for any of bells squats. >>61313070>huge like hindenburgi think you can still bail foward or roll it backwards. i have nkt practiced it yet. my plan would be to just bail on it backwards to the floor.
>>61313263I feel like you should be able to just roll your hands under and step forward unless you're in extreme low bar forward lean then dump it over your head and suffer brain damage or w/e. Would have to remove spotters to avoid pinching arms though
>>61313263And I don't think they could have both a judge and a camera unless the camera was only for review, can you imagine how hard judges would get seethed at if there was unambiguous proof they were wrong
>>61310911I don't see how you can get gassed doing that You'd have to be weak, do nothing but singles and doubles, or be fatigued from another session
This is a 475 squat from a while ago, could I get a form check? I've got a theory that I have weak glutes
>>61313421Looks fine to me if you aren't having any issues with it
>>61313070>RAPIDLY APPROACHING HINDENBURG MODEflaming?
>>61313421femur angle looks well above parallel when compared to your spotter arms and it looks like your belt is crashing into your thighs at the bottom of the squat
>>61313358>judges would get seethed at if there was unambiguous proof they were wrongthis for sure. garrett fear was saying there were high squats at the kern. got no proof>>61313421you'll hit the glutes more if you sit back more instead of letting your knees travel foward. that should tell you. you might be a bit high because of how you squat. you're getting lower but pushing your knees foward but and not lowering the hips.
>>61311810it would be extremely painful.
>>61313070you have sumo tits now. weight and height?

>>61313481Ok thanks>>61313649>>61314435Not to cope but the camera angle is deceiving, it's closer to parallel than it looks. My knees go out at a pretty big angle, maybe like 30 degrees. Used the same form at a powerlifting meet a while ago and it got all white lights. I am trying to learn wide stance but it's very challenging, I can't find power and my hips feel messed up>>61313660This is better than it used to be in terms of sitting back, doing my best to correct it
>>61315316if you give us a better angle (side on) we can assess it better obviously
>>61315341Are you implying that 3 cameras is an optimal setup? I might have to agree
>>61315405whatever works, most things are an improvement from "behind and above you"
>>61315316>>61315405no. low from the back at like a 45° angle. i also think you are high on this
>>61314026OMG. This is fucking amazing.
>>61315264The only snatch you should want from a woman is between her legs lmao
>>61314489>>61315170>>61315261I was up to 107 a couple months ago but have been bouncing between 104 and 106 since.

If you can't get that to feel good, do very high rep band good mornings. Better than nothing. I used to do those before building the reverse hyper plugin and it was part of what fixed my back.>>61315316>it's closer to parallel than it looks.So you agree it's high? >My knees go out at a pretty big angle, maybe like 30 degrees.That's not much. I'm not saying you have to squat this wide >>61311810, but wider than you're doing now should be good for you especially seeing how long your legs look.
You know what lads... I was feeling slightly depressed today, probably due to an overconsumption of caffeine (cofvefe) elevating my anxiety levels and thus depression along with the impending nwo agenda and the whole vax ordeal.and I've been one to proclaim that I would desire pussy itt before, but considering my libido is down currently and my mind is a bit more clear headed than usual I came to the realization that elevated my mood back up again and that is that....atleast I'm not married, holy hell lmao.

>>61315652>Says the dude who drinks cream on camera.Once you get to a certain point, it is work to put on weight. eating like 4lbs of pizza helps put on bodyweight, but you feel bloated for a couple days. eatch push is effort.
>>61315731I wonder at which point bloatmaxxing begins to be counterproductive>>61315617I got tested for Covid today, negstive. I just have a bad cold. Wonder how hard my gains are gonna get hit.
>>61315833>bloatmaxxing begins to be counterproductivethat doesn't have any meaning. if you're only goal is to be stronger, not that i can think of. if you bulk out of a weightclass, its when you get to big to cut back down.it could be other arbitrary points like bulking out of your clothes or maybe your belt, cant run a sub 7 minute mile, just don't like looking that fat, etc. its up to the person to decide.
>>61313070>this is the body of an athlete
>>61315936So, if your only goal is to get as strong as possible, there's no "overdoing", so to speak, in gaining bodyweight even if most of it is fat? I'm asking you because I assume if someone has practical experience with that hete, it's you.
>>61316016100% PURE ATHLECICISM>>61316018The only thing I can think of is at some point the bloat will hinder your deadlift. Besides that it's up to you as was said.

How do I train squats and deadlifts without squat or deadlift variations? pls no meme answers; I can't do them right now
>>61312196nice. not quite 15 but still pretty good :^)>>61313421you start hunching at :07 which could be caused by weaker glutes. can't tell you much past that unfortunately---Bait thread is doing well, good job guys. day 2 of AMRAP ROULETTE : TITTY TUESDAY EDITION HOW MANY (short) PAUSE COMP BENCH REPS DID I GET?
>>61319655Is there some reason you can't change bar position, cadence, stance width, etc?
>>61319673>Not quite 15Sum day I may :'(>How many bench pause repsWhat w8, m8
>>61319714Yes. I've tried high bar, low bar, front squat, ssb, pause, sumo, stiff leg, trap bar; every variation you can think off results in a snapped backI just want to train consistently again
>>61319448if I had a sushi place within 50 miles I'd eat 2 pounds of the stuff every weekend>>61319589I normally get porterhouse which tends to be thinner and cooks faster but it's twice as expensive now as it was 2 weeks ago
>>61319673>HOW MANY (short) PAUSE COMP BENCH REPS DID I GET?7 at 315
>>61319736Do you know how to brace properly? Have any videos?
>>61319762It's not a bracing issue; trust me. I was training just fine with squats and deadlifts and then I fucked myself up. Even the empty bar has taken me off my feet and had me literally crawling to a seat to pull myself up
>>61319655Belt squats and maybe goodmornings without going too heavy
>>61319723oh shidd I forgot the weight 315 burgers
>>61319673>>61319783>comp bench>0 cause your bum came off8
>>61319775Don't have belt squatsCan't really do good mornings either, or really any exercise which has a large change in back angle
>>61319620i can't understand these moon runes
>>61319402Can explain more what you mean that i'm not built to deadlift?I'm short 5.6, does that explain it?
>>61319837https://youtube.com/watch?v=urc627ZvB5ANo hypers either? If not, then I can only think of reverse hypers
>>61319869Let me see if I remember what that build is like >Short arms >Long torso>Short legs Your back would look parallel to the floor when you deadlift
>>61319987but long legs make your back more parallel, short legs make it more vertical
whats the best way to maintain or even increase general strength with only your body, a pull-up bar a dip station and no space to do the last two weighted (I am in trashmany)? I was thinking of setting something like a daily total volume target for push-ups, squats, etc. in the vein of woody strode and so on, but with more sets and less reps per set (and I frankly gas out from doing many 25+ reps sets of push-ups and so). is there a better way? I guess you could attempt to learn something like pistol squats or one-armed push-ups, but I really dont have the balance or flexibility for that and I somewhat doubt that it would help very much. doing a high total daily volume at least sounds a bit hardcore in comparison
>>61319877How much weight should be used on these things compared to a regular squat? Most dip belts I can find don't seem to have a weight capacity much higher than 100kg
>>61320047look for squat belts
>>61320076Honestly don't think I can find any. My country is not big on this, and 95% of the results are just for regular belts. There is one I've fund, from Spud, but it's sold out.
>>61320047You'll just have to try it yourself to figure our your belt squatting strength>>61320157You might need to use something like this while it's out of stock, otherwise, you can try using dip belts and use increased depth, slower temp and pauses to make use of less weight
>>61319987my body is proportional, just asked my friend about my form and he said it's good and my back isn't parallel to the ground, maybe it's just a have a weak back, i have anterior pelvic tilt tho
>>61319753>>61319818>>61319825I'd say 9, depends on how TnG a few of these are.
>>61320157ironmind makes a high end squat belt they're sold on amazon https://www.amazon.com/SUPER-SQUATS-Hip-Belt-Medium/dp/B005IE7G00/spud sells their products on amazon and a zillion other sites https://www.amazon.com/Black-Weight-Lifting-Strength-Training/dp/B01CF60KCY/or just buy a dip belt that looks heavy duty enough to handle whatever weight you need to use, or make one like >>61320286 suggested using tow straps or something
>>61320300>how TnG a few of these are.all of them lmaostill mirin
>>61320324well, less TnG than my last set of 10 at 315>lifting more weight each session brainlet move>cheating slightly less each session big brain gains
>>61320372that's what I've been doing with my OHP. First you bounce out a set of 3, then a set of 5, then eventually you can actually press a clean set of 3.

>>61324271Did you attempt 6pl8 again old man?
>>61324298Yes.In hindsight, LMAO5PLAYT deadlift triples 24 hours after LMAO6PLAYT squat probably wasn't a smart idea.
>>61324257My deadlift is shit at the moment, but it's just a way to address my weakness off the floor. I can't know for certain if deficit sumo deadlifts are the best use of my time as of this moment but I am fairly confident they are worth having in my ME rotation
>>61324342Yeah I saw your squat before. Good job but I meant a 6pl8 deadlift but you answered anyway
Hatfield squats: meme or not?
>>61324349They definitely wouldn't hurt. I've always found pause deadlifts really good for targetting weakness off the floor but that's because when I get impatient I lose hip position in exchange for speed off the floor but that makes lockout harder. After next week I have about 6 weeks before I start comp prep so I might throw in some deficits as my deadlift variation to see how they go.
>>61324437Good meme, similiar to belt squat but slightly more perceived "carry over" due to spinal loading
>>61324449I have considered paused deadlifts, bit I'm not sure they would make a good ME movement
>>61324478You could pause for a long time or add bands
>>61324546Alright, I'll try it next week, but my motor-moron gym buddy won't make it easy
LP coming to a close (doing GZCL)What should I do next? Candito 6 week looks good, but I am worry about the lack of overhead pressing. Thoughts?

>>61324283Is it true you don't own a gun?

>>61324724He posted about his road rage a few threads back, perhaps this is why he doesn't own one. Road rage seems unwise in a country where so many people are armed though, maybe he elicits more sympathy than anger from the old ladies he shakes his fist at.

I'm nearing the end of LP (SS) and been doing some reading on what to do next. I'm old (41) and my recovery is not what it used to be. I've come across this Andy Baker's HLM template:Monday-Squats (H)-Bench press/OHP (H)-Deadlift (H)Wednesday-Front Squats (L)-OHP/Bench press (H)-Pendlay row (L)Friday-Squats (M)-Bench press/OHP (M)-Power clean (M)The progression is:Heavy:-Week 1: 1x5 @80% + 3x5 @75%-Week 2: 1x3 @85% + 4x5 @75%-Week 3: 1x1-2 @90% + 5x5 @75%-Week 4: Increase weight on everything by 2,5kg and repeat cycleMedium: 4x5 @5% deload from Heavy's back off setsLight: 3x5 @10% deload from Heavy's back off setsWith this template I won't be hitting PRs every week but it looks better for basebuilding than a weekly LP progression program. It also looks more sustainable in time.Does it look good? Or should I opt for something that would have me Pr-ing every week like TM or other HLM template?
>the man who saved single ply
>>61326296Yes. Also andy baker really, really knows his shit, whereas the absolute retardation of this thread really can't be overstated. I hope you see the error of this post.
>>61326296>Medium: 4x5 @5% deload from Heavy's back off setsDoes that mean you take 95% of heavy day weight, or you go down to 70% of 1rm?
>>6132642595% of the back offs, so yeah, medium day usually falls somewhere between 70-75% of RM. Light somewhere around 65%
>>61326296the math and program makes sense to me as long as you can handle the monday workout which is a lot of work. i think you can handle a bigger weight jump even at your age if you're just coming off LP. and i think that upper and lower should have different weight jumps. maybe start out with 10kg lower and 5kg upper for around 4 months or until things start to get harder. then go down to 5kg lower and 2.5kg upperif that monday workout seems too hard after awhile, you'd be better off running some sort of a split schedule
>>61326531I was thinking of moving deadlifts to friday to make monday less gruesome.Agreed that the progress scheme is a bit slower, and while I'd say I'm above average in fitness level for my age, I'm very sensitive to shit happening, like bad sleep night? Lose 10kg on your squats. Work has been particulary stressful? Lose 3-4 reps on OHP. The kids have been giving me extra shit? Lose 2-3 reps on deads. For some readon bench is the inly thing I can progress steadily, ot doesn't get hit as much. I'd rather go slow and steady than get reckt for a week just to add 2.5kg on my squats.Thay being said, I'll heed your advice on trying higher jumps for the first cycles, or at least for as long as they're sustainable.
>>61326651if you're already thinking of modifying the monday workout then maybe you should just go with a split from the get-go. 5/3/1 is a great program for older guys and you just work on one lift per day. the base program is really simple and would be a good starting point. if you like it, 5/3/1 forever sets it up to be sustainable for years to come with that anchor-leader system. it also gives you different weight jumps on upper/lower which i think is important.

>>61326956Buy LIDL store brand 3.33 dl cans, theyre like 50 cents per drink and always fizz when opened.
>>61326699I was also considering an upper/lower split, but can't make it 4 days to the gym on the reg. I will look into 531 and other options, though. I reckon I still have 2-3 weeks before having to switch programs.
>>61327098that requirement makes it harder to make a blanket recommendation, but it is definitely doable
>>61327042>Lived long enough to see LIDL beat Coke/Pepsino Lidl close enough currentlyI don't need soda that desperately...
>>61327098there is 3 day and 3 day full-body templates for 5/3/1, and if you see a 4-day split you like you can always run that and simply roll it over M/W/F which is good for older guys anyway
