Hey, I am just glad that no one suggested I lift in my Doc Martens. BC be careful squatting in a shoe that isn't straight laced. I couldn't tell if that shoe or not was. But when ya got long legs your knees will go in weird directions if your shoes are laced in a curve. Thanks for the suggestions boys. i am pretty much just looking at a pair of core converses or the ol' adidas lifting shoes for deads and squats. Thanks though!

Because they are not 100% flat, it is supposed to increase the chances I will topple forward? Should I order some Chucks?

don't fix what ain't broke
although, i would always recommend chucks over any other type of shoe for squatting. the flatter - the better. i would think a standard running shoe would force you to place more emphasis on your quads and perhaps cause knee issues. if the shoe is flatter, you can recruit your hams/glutes more into the movement.

Ya what beez said and it's harder to use heel force with them, but to each their own. if you're doing 400 with them then keep going with it
05-22-2006, 02:15 PM
plus the sides of running shoes arent that strong, so the chances of you rolling your ankle is much greater

Standing smith calf press from a deficit:
10x815 PR (I could only fit 17 45's on the leg press... its a cheap paramount so it worked My partner had to help hold the 17th's on top of the sled.
Romanian Dead lifts:
10x315 PR Yeah! (used straps due to \/ )
alright so I had to cut my workout short for a couple of reasons. 1st-when I broke my left knee, in the same accident I broke my left forearm in half, its held together at the bone by two metal plates. I aggravated the tendons that go over the metal moving out of the dorm the other day, so I did not do biceps or forearms because i didn't think it a good idea. I am gonna ice my forearm and give it a rest.
Alright, I fly home tomorrow. so take care!

awesome job brutha. remember, small people make great additions to sit on top the leg press for added weight
05-22-2006, 03:49 PM
Amen to that. At the gym I just switched too the leg press only holds 815..I had to get my gf to sit on top of it.Originally Posted by Beelzebub

Is 315 what your standing calf press machine tops out at? It's the same @ our university gym, I just go for reps.Originally Posted by motiv8erJR
Also, you are flying home? Done with the semester? I am jealous man! I'm on the quarter system over here and am stuck in classes till June 18th
Nice job on the Romanian DLs!

05-22-2006, 04:19 PM
It wasn't a calf machine, just smith rack with 315 on it, and me on a 20 KG bumper doing DC like movement. I didn't want to put much stress on my back, cuz CNS burn out scares me, so I just did higher reps with 315 instead of trying a higher weightOriginally Posted by BigCasino
Yup, I fly home tuesday, and I am finished with this school year! Thanks fo the support ya'll (I was ready to heave after the RDL's )
05-24-2006, 06:44 PM
Did I say it was nice to be home? Had to make a run to GNC this morning for protein its nice to work there part time... get the discount and my boss loves me so I got 5 lbs tub of ON whey and a free tub of Bananna creme Muscle Milk with some UNi-Liver he couldn't sell
Decline Dumbell Press:
100x5 plus a BIG negative PR
Barbell Shoulder Shrugs SS with lateral Raises:
135x15 ss 15x12
225x8 ss 20x12
405x12 ss 20x15 PR
I do the shrugs with a 3 sec. hold at the top same with the lat. raise
Close Grip BB press:
I stayed at one weight because my arms were fryed from the 100 DB's ^
Lat Pull Downs:
200x12 with straps PR
I haven't done these in a year
200x10 with straps
hadn't done these either.... was very happy with them, gonna have to add weight to the stack next time and drop the first two sets and do a 100x15 as a warm up
All DC stretchs for each exercise 90 sec.

get some chucks, and get a molded insole from a pediatrist. He will be able to get a custom model set up for you that supports your arch perfectly while not doing too much to make your foot unstable.
Also, I am a huge fan of deads these days, but you've got to mix it up. I do some kind of deadlift every week. You can do rack pulls, deadlifts off a platform, deadlifts off the floor, switch stances, one armed deadlifts, deadlifts with/against bands, etc. Big thing is just not to overdo it, deadlifts are one of those exercises (squats and good mornings are like this too) where you can do just fine with 3 sets of 5 at 80%, 4 sets of 3 at 85% or 6 sets of 1 at 90% and call it a day without pushing it TOO hard. I've made the mistake of pushing too hard on my legs and my PRs got very very small (i.e. just barely squeezing out one more rep). Keep the volume and percentages slightly lower for legs than you might normally think, and don't worry so much about going to failure frequently, but hammer them often.

Thanks for the advice on the insole though ex

That's major good advice on the rotating your Dead's..I am doing the same program as you and actually only end up doing Floor Pulls twice a month. Even still my Dead has gone up 40lbs since starting the program. Like Ex said, they are an easy exercise to overdo

i have a quick question, im currently three days deep in a haladrol cycle and im not sure how intense i should work out one source tells me day1 back bi's day2chest triceps day3 legs day4 shoulder lats than 2 days of rest while the other is telling me i shouldnt need to take days off as long as im switching muscle groups every day

So maybe take this post seriously and post your question in the forum named anabolics. But do what I told you, list your stats... or no one will help... and if jmh80 finds you first... good luck

He's posted it in others too, just a member of the species Messageboardicus Trollicus subspecies CannotUsicus SearchFeaturus so you can't expect any better posts from him
05-25-2006, 09:41 PM
05-25-2006, 09:46 PM
He's already huge, check his other posts, 7 feet tall and 400 lbs with 3% bodyfat or some ridiculousness. I always wonder how the trolls are so impressive yet know so little cough*internet exaggeration factor*cough
05-25-2006, 10:42 PM
does talkin **** to people you dont know on the internet make up for some insecurity of yours ktw *hint* below the belt. sorry i dont use my knowledge of online protocol as a basis for rating both intelligence and self esteem booster look i dont mean to talk trash to any one i just had a question and was unsure if this was the right forum to ask it in. i just joined like a week ago ive been training for 5 years but i was a little unsure about how to go about training on prohormones
05-25-2006, 10:44 PM
If you're thinking of taking prohormones, you should already know how to train on them. Not trying to be a ****, but this log was not really the appropriate medium in which to ask your question. Lets not clutter Motiv8erjr's log any more, wasn't trying to be exceedingly harsh on you so don't worry about it.

No, H 50 is spost to simulate Oral Turinabol not var, and OT itself is supposed to have an androgen rating of 0, but an anabolic rating equal to that of Dbol. (my source on that is steroid.com, people can correct me if I am incorrect).
