Re: Problems with running

I usually run in my wrestling shoes! its flat, no heel and very very thin. At first it was hard on the feet because I went from big cusioned running shoes to these ones and I honestly can say that when i started running 1 mile felt so awkward. Now I can just as much as I could in cushioned shoes and...

overtrained or being a pussy?

Lol I know this sounds like a bad topic but I had a quick question and I cant tell. I recently started stronglifts and have followed it down to the letter but also added maybe some pullups and ab wheels and 1 set of dumbell Presses and stuff but not enough to impact me wrongly. So this Sunday I felt...

Re: Can you add to Strong lifts at all?

Oh thank you guys, I actually started to think about the whole program after I read through everything. I actually thought it was pretty legit at first but then i looked on forums outside of stronglifts and saw a lot of people trashing mehdi for his benefits. Apparently Mehdi thought his workout was...

Re: Can you add to Strong lifts at all?

Well I know it will eventually get extremely tough and eventually ill start to slow down my progress but in my opinion there is no "wall" you hit. But in reality its not the wall you worry about its the fact of will it work forever? Im only asking because I have less and less time for the gym. I hav...

Can you add to Strong lifts at all?

I was wondering if you're allowed to add anything to strong lifts? This Sunday I am going to do the basic strong lifts workout 3 days a week. The workout is very simple and only has 3 exercises per each of your days and is focused around the big 5 lifts (Squat, Bench, Barbell Rows, Dead Lift, and Mi...

Re: Back From Illness

Re: Baffled on progress deadlift vs squat

A good way for me to break out of a squat stall is to basically hold the bar just like a normal squat start position and then breathe in strongly and out strongly 10 times then go down and up then 10 times again. This helped me break a 2 month stall I had on squat when I first started. After that, e...

Re: Back From Illness

SO this time around, I decided to use the first 4 days of the week and do rest 3 days because honestly...

Back From Illness

Hey guys, I just came back from being sick for a very long time. It turns out that I have a serious Gluten Allergy and even though Im not a full celiac, I hurt my body every day for the past few years by eating bread everyday and pasta almost every week. Little by little I killed my insides apparent...

Re: what set range for what rep range?

ya but it does go for me as well, Im still skinny and the only thing that grows on me the fastest is my legs. I love it and I hate it. I can squat good but I cant bench. My shoulders are bad too. I dont think Ill ever press 135 .. I think its just my genetics. IM basically good with back and legs. M...

Re: what set range for what rep range?

kpj, what do you mean by over reaching? Do you simply add sets and reps to your current workout? Or do you workout more during the week?

Re: what set range for what rep range?

this is really interesting. I never knew deloads were as important as the full workout weeks. Now one last question on this. What would give better recovery, Deloads or complete rest? Im assuming deloads is more of an active recovery type thing, right? Is it better to take a week off or still workou...
