Re: Random crap

we're always joking around, so I decide to go on there and put a question along the lines of "Will you ever find the man of your dreams?" Put in my quarter, stepped on the scale, I did it as a "haha" stupid joke amongst friends. I personally like women. Guess I should have clarified that in my firs...

Re: New to working out; my exercise routine

Another little blurb here: How much time do you have that you are able to commit to lifting? Also You may want to consider putting in a tricep excercise in your upper body workout. Given your equipment I would say go for wither an Overhead Raise or Skull Crushers. (I was going to link to their excer...

C25K Program?

Hey all, Yesterday I stumbled upon a running program entitled "Couch to 5K" or C25K for short. Their site contains the program, and a bunch of other really nice stories, tidbits (LOVE the section on why people drop out), etc. I researched reviews, and problems with the program, and have found nothin...

Re: Random crap

I have a bunch of random little things that motivate me. My most recent stint was motivated by, well, my weight. I went on a weekend trip with my old baseball team, as we do every summer, and this time we visited some coal mine tour. In the souvenir shop, there was this gimmick of a scale that can a...

Re: Missing Reps in non-first Sets, Focus

You cannot "psych yourself up" to push a weight you have not trained and adapted to. The real role of motivation and will is to pick a program (or method for devising a program) known to work and follow the rules and stick with it. Grunting can easily add 10% to all your lifts. I think there is a m...

Re: Push and pull exercises

The way I have viewed push vs. pull (and this is from the exrx main site and excercise split programs) is, for upper body "push" means extension of the arms meaning a secondary muscle should be the triceps, and pull means bring it in, secondary being the biceps. For legs, generally push involves qua...

Re: Specific session for specific weakness/"light"accessory

Rob Scott pretty much hit the nail right on the head, just one added note: Depending on your overall endurance and extent of being "in shape," there is a possibility of seeing your numbers take a dip initially when doing an agonist/antagonist style of workout. If you do decide to take that route, do...

Re: X-fit prospective

I skimmed through this, and absolutely loved it. It made me think of a couple months back when I started my gym/health/good habits binge. Basically, so many people work out and whatnot to look good for other people, and to appeal others, etc. That was why, for me, the self-improvement never came ful...
