I lost 20 pounds in 2 weeks. Strict diet, lifting, and burning 1,000 calories a day with cardio. I need new pants.

It wouldn't be the same exact effect because the stairs have a stable foundation to them whereas with the straps you have to work your core more to stabilize yourself.

I'm sure the other guys in here know way more than me, but I'd say its an easier alternative. Maybe invest in a stability ball for like 20 bucks and it would be an even better alternative.

the thing i love about the bosu ball is the fact that it's not stable, it foces you to use alot of the smaller muscles. do push ups strictly on bosu for 2 weeks, and then switch to the ground and you will feel a huge difference in how much easier the ground becomes. i just use the bosu at the gym, they run about 100 bucks.\

the straps start off around 200. i'm a huge fan of them. trying doing a dip with them and the first time i guarantee your arms will shake like they were noodles, no matter how strong they are. i love making my swoll ass friends try it for the first time :-)

Looks like I'll be incorporating the bosu ball in my BodyRock routine. Except I have one for free from my sister-in-law.

Yeah, you know what, a suspension trainer is INCREDIBLY versatile and efficient. If you have the money, a barbell, some plates, and a TRX are all you need. If you want something unstable to use, you could use a basketball instead. I'm assuming you guys have at least one lying around, this being a basketball forum and all.

TRX dips and push ups. I love these exercises (except i like to have my feet higher and the push up lower to work the upper chest more)

Might not be everyone's cup of tea, but this might also serve to be some motivation for y'all.

I used to always work out hard but I never pushed myself like I have been the past 2-3 months and I'm seeing really good results. I'm more ripped and stronger than I've ever been and weigh 25 lbs less than I did a few months ago. I think using Krealkalyn has contributed quite a bit as well.

You put up 10 reps of 300lbs at 165lbs? And this was after just getting into the gym hard again the last 2-3 months?

You basically have world class strength, if you put it up without too much trouble. Being able to rep out 10 at essentially almost double your bodyweight, would put you at an elite level, even at lifting. 300lbs for 10 roughly translates into 400lbs lift for a one rep max. Do you realize how shit strong you have to be to lift 2.5 times your bodyweight? And you make it seem like an easy feat? Why don't you lift professionally?

Ignoring the mocking tone - I've been lifting consistently for years, I said I hadn't pushed myself as hard as I had been in the gym the last 2-3 months. I'd been regularly benching 240-250 for a while when I was 190+ but never tried anything higher after the weight loss. As for the 10 reps, I didn't say they were all perfect form and "not too much trouble" meaning I didn't feel dead after doing them. Anyway, I put up 300 on the smith machine bench and don't really care about proving it further to a dude on the internet.

A professional lifter...lmao, I'm in medical school; I'd never entertain the thought of such a shit job
