Re: anyone tried cheap clamp-on landmines?

Thanks for your help. Kenny, do you have one of those "plate-insert" style landmines? You said you like the idea of taking it anywhere - have you actually done that? Are you like taking it outside or something? On vacation? Yes, I have the "Plate-Insert" Landmine. I use it at home. Yes, on nice day...

Re: Estimated Calorie Requirements Calculator --HELP!!!

Hi everyone! I am brand new to this site and I was hoping to get some insight as to how accurate ExRx's calculator is for determining your TDEE. There are so many calculators out there and it can be overwhelming figuring out which one is actually relatively close to what you really need. Which TDEE...

Re: anyone tried cheap clamp-on landmines?

one can find inexpensive landmine/"t bar row" attachments on ebay, for example search "Ivation T-Bar Row Platform" (my rep is too low for posting links evidently) I'm wondering whether anyone has tried these and whether they're cheap because they're worthless. Thanks! Here's information on the... I...

Re: Why does weightlifting not take more of a cardio mindset

I got to thinking today amid reading an article about squats, it sort of got me thinking. It seems the popular trend today in the fitness world is elevating squats above pretty much every other exercise as one that everyone must be doing or they're not really "lifting". In this article - https://dr...

Re: Exercises during rest (reps between reps)

First post here. I've looked for an answer to this everywhere, but wasn't able to find. I'm a beginner, and finally got enough discipline to keep doing exercises routinely, after years trying to start. I've been doing it for three months, with good nutrition, and have had good results. I'm quite ex...

Re: loss of workout pump

I think at this point of age you should heavy weight exercise, rather than go for cardiac exercises and jogging to stay fit. Building Strength/Increasing Muscle Mass Research by Dr Michael Zourdos (PhD Exercise Physiology/Powerlifter) determined that increasing strength is optimized when three type...

Re: loss of workout pump

From what we know about the "pump" it is caused by metabolic stress stress placed on the muscle by reps in the 6-12 range causing a buildup of fluid within the cell, facilitated by the accumulation of metabolic by products, which function as osmolytes. Of course the anabolic hormones HGH, insulin, ...

Re: Some questions on rep ranges and progressing

Hi guys, So I've been trying to design my own program, but I'm a little confused on both set/rep ranges and progressing. First, looking at the Weight Training Guidelines page it seems that there are some differences between the stuff from ACSM 1995 and the stuff from 2002...am I wrong for thinking ...

Re: Wendler 5/3/1 stalling question

Wendler also states nowadays that one should be able to do 5 strong reps (with good barspeed) in 5/3/1-week. I would recommend a lower TM, either a new calculation (taking 85% instead of 90%) or going back 3 cycles and go from there. Lower Training Max Calculation This is an excellent point. With t...
