I went with my brother to the gym again and got damn... I am further reminded of the fact that more muscle does not equal more strength. I was just doing power cleans with 155-175 and deads with 245-285 (felt heavier than it should have so I didn't go for 300 anymore) and he and his friends were going "How'd you do that?" and they all had better physiques than me (or at least bigger).

But anyway, I'm looking to go with my brother every Friday now since he's allowed to bring guests along on the weekends. Finally gonna get my wish for heavier deadlifts, kettlebells, and battle ropes during the week. Feels good.

I do. I usually just stretch out my stiffest parts or the ones that really need loosening up, but not everything. I do them both before and after, but I try to stretch everything or at least those that did the heaviest work that day, depending on what movements I trained. I also usually finish off sessions with back bridges so I guess that's helped me. I don't get to roll them but I do stretch them.

I do some active stretching before the big lifts, nothing special just got to warm up.

After a workout I roll with a PVC pipe and do some lacrosse ball stuff on my feet, chest, piriformis, etc. Then I throw in about 5-10 minutes of mobility stuff. Check out DeFrancos Agile 8 on YouTube, I think he updated it to 11 but I haven't checked that out. Also buy Becoming a Supple Leopard.

Damn... I was thinking it was my piriformis muscle at the back that was causing my lower back discomfort, but I stretched out my hip flexors at the front last night, and wow... I woke up today, a lot more limber, more pain free then I have in a while.

Spent a good 15 minutes just stretching the hip flexors last night, and it hurt like hell, but I stuck through it.

I've been stuck at my current weight and lifts for months now because of financial problems. I'm simply not eating enough.

Yeah, I'm definitely gonna hit 405 on bench before the end of the year, got 375 up 3 times with no spot after a week off from the gym. My shoulders are feeling a lot better, they will never be 100% but they aren't going to hold me back.

Tonight I did some deadlifts, repped 435 x 3, which to people that take lifting seriously isn't really a lot, but after the set two kids that were watching actually applauded and a trainer complimented me on the lift. Pretty corny, but it really stuck with me after and just makes me want to push harder to get those lifts up.

Dude, 435lbs is a lot of weight, regardless how long you've been lifting.

Congrats.

So I was reading this blog by Anthony Mychal which I find very interesting. His blog is about his personal story about his health from when he was a teenager until now and going against the standards of building a physique. He goes into dieting, fasting, nutrition, body building, etc.

I came upon this video of these people doing what's called "Trick Battling". Which is basically like dance battling, but in the form of tumbling. I find it pretty amazing and I wish I could see some of their footwork and landings in super-slow-mo. Also Mr. Mychal's blog is extremely interesting to much for anyone interested...

to become a cop in my country all you need to do is 55 pushups, 10 chinups, 60 crunches and run 3200 metres ( 2miles ) in 13:30 min.. for males.. for females its obviously even lower.

and still only 20% of the candidates made it through this

what a joke, no wonder everyone is toying with us

I have genetically shitty traps I guess, I can shrug & deadlift a lot of weight, but my traps just refuse to "pop" when I see them from the front. Doesn't help that I have almost no neck, but still I'd expect them to pop more with the weights I move but nope. The only positive is that you can see my traps through sweatshirts and hoodies from behind, looks like two hooks in my back. But I can't really see them from the front

Really annoying to see someone shrugging half the weight you move, but with much better traps.

Strength and Endurance time.

Did a couple sets of leg press.
Couple sets of Landmine Presses.
Couple of rows
Did very slow Russian Full Contact Twist (I HIGHLY RECOMMEND that anyone who wants a strong core ONLY do these, hanging leg raises, rollouts, and planks with Squats and Deads. Say no to crunches/situps and side bends!!!!)


And finished it off with a cardio calisthenic circuit ( I LOVE THEZE)
Dips
TRX Rows
Chin Ups
Burpees
Swings.
Rest was 5-10 seconds. Cardio looking swell. Want to be INFATIGABLE though. Switched up the diet to mimic Ben Greenfield a guy who is basically a triathalon champ. Advocates a strong portion of calories from fat which is detrimental to bodybuilding goals, but has you feeling healthier and more stable.

His food pyramid is something like
4th level: Fruit
3rd level: Starch?legume (Lentils, Yams)
2nd level: PROTEIN (beef, turkey, eggs, tuna)
1st level: VEG (broccoli, asparagus, kale, spinach, chard)
BASE; FAT (coconut oil, egg yolks, avocado, butter, almonds)



Feeling very fit. Much respect to Rushfit, MMA guys, and Crossfit for encouraging us to use our bodyweight to train our hearts as oppose to running on the modern day Guillotine which is the treadmill.

This winter may be rough, but our inner fire never dissipates.
