Yeah, bags of feed work nicely. Just be careful though, I duck taped two of my 45 lb bags of dog food together a while back and was "playing" around with shouldering it and heaving it up, and one of the bags broke and I had dog food all over the k-word fllor. Dog's thought it was great though. Tim ...

Hrm... never thought of sandbags, I feel so foolish haha. My mother lives in the country and at times I help her carry some heavy ass bags of feed around. I should try on those. Gonna have to study the form for a while though since it's my first time and I try and over-do-it a lot and end up injurin...

there are tons of youtube video's that show correct form. There are 2 reasons why the back rounds: 1- Tight Hamstrings, your hamstrings pull the pelvis downwards which makes your lower back round. 2- Weak Back How To Fix Rounding of the Lower Back. Keeping your chest up still applies. You can’t roun...

Well I know from a lot and lot of reading that in order to lose BF% and keep your muscle you have to include heavy lifting. Which is something I am doing. I'm just not sure as to the best method of losing BF% without dropping a drastic amount of weight. I've worked really hard to gain the weight and...

I wouldn't. Besides it's probably an aquired taste so plan on puking the first several times which is not fun.

It sounds from one of your other posts that you're into MMA? There's a poster here, pdellorto who has been doing it for a long time, I think. You might want to private message him and see what he thinks. I'm actually not clear on what sport CoreAlex is training for. I know Lightningsix does Muay Th...

Yeah my DL is lacking because I'm having to use dumbbells which don't feel as stable as a barbell. Other than the dumbbells I only have the smith machine to do DL's which are not great for form. Also, I have never included DL's into my workouts until I started my journal. On the same note.... I neve...

My schedule is still going to include my 3day split heavy lifting. Only I'll be including 2 possibly 3 at the most cardio session on my inbetween days and I'm confused as to what cardio I should be doing. I'm willing to try anything that will lower my BF% but not burn the muscle I've been gaining. A...

Great Info Stew, thanks. I mainly want to make sure that I am burning a good amount of BF % so after some light reading I've kinda picked up I need Low Intensity cardio over a good period of time for that. Is that correct? So unless I understood incorrectly, something like a steady jog for 1hr or mo...

I try but with reps going past 8-10 it gets really hard holding the grip.
Maybe I should do shrugs on the smith machine instead?
