  1. hah i tried squatting in those same shoes once, real unstable


  2. 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!

    Eh, I dunno, maybe it is because my limbs are not as long as yours and MotivatorJRs, but I was doing work sets of 400lbs last week just fine.

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

  4. 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.

  5. 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

  6. 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:
    15x135
    12x225
    15x315


    Leg press:
    20x200
    15x365
    5x635
    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:
    15x135
    10x225
    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!

  8. awesome job brutha. remember, small people make great additions to sit on top the leg press for added weight

    Is 315 what your standing calf press machine tops out at? It's the same @ our university gym, I just go for reps.

    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!

    If only there was a small person at this gym... My partner is almost 200, so could have probably done more. but I dont think this ole sled could take much more I go home tomorrow where my leg press is already bent from me but it will hold a lot more

    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 weight

    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 )

    ~Mk

  14. Hey bro,

    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.

    I understand what you are saying. This was my first two week rotation of a DC style training, and I wasn't sure exsactly what weights I needed, so I tried to hit reps till I knew what felt right, and I didn't over do the working sets. So, the next two weeks should be more proving.

    Thanks for the advice on the insole though ex

    ~Mk

  17. 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

  18. 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

    Do you have your PCT ready, if you want a serious answer on this board you need to give your stats and that means height, weight, AGE, and number of years you train, and an idea of what you eat on a daily basis. No matter what you are on you need rest days dude, Look at Beelze he is probably one of the strongest mofos on here, and he only lifts four days a week.... think on that and if you still need answers I am only 19 and dont plan on touching any form of anabolics anytime soon. 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

    Yeah, I switched up my deads, and I am only doing Romanian's once every two weeks.... which is in my mind plenty of time. Because at my height lifting deads will not only burn out my CNS and lower lumber but can also but un-needed stress on my forearm... its held together by metal... not good.

    Not sure why you posted this in Mot's log....

  22. 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

    awwww... go easy on him, he's just trying to get HYOOGE


  24. 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

  25. 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

  26. 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.

    Read your other post, dont take the two methyl's together. In my opinion take the H-50 if you insist. The methyl one got my broham to grow back hair and go bald... trust me it sucks having to help him shave his back, h-50 if I remember is supposed to simulate var.... So good luck!


    ~Mk

  29. 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).

    I think you right at least in it being Turinabol... or a nan. anywho, I thought it was still methylated?
