I got a new pack that's much less bulky than the one I was using - easier on my shoulders too. Stuffed my 50# sandbag and a water bladder in there and did 6 miles Sunday and 3 miles last night.

My hips and shoulders are adjusting to the new poundage so I should be back on the trails next week.

Deadlifted 425 for 10. The rest of my workout was significantly worsened due to this balls out set; I still feel like vomiting.

Goof stuff!

EDIT: I missed the D key and hit F instead but I'll leave it here for posterity's sake.

Are you pulling sumo or conventional?

Are you a robot?

The American people are not safe while Canada houses these weapons of mass destruction

I move that we deploy troops to Galadrome's garage gym before it is too late

You know, being Canadian, that might have been 425 kilos

I am still in awe. I don't think I have done a ten rep set of any sort of deadlift other than on the trap. My mind equates deadlifting with triples.

Starting to do more lifting at the gym in addition to the climbing. Can now consistently squat sets of five reps at 145. (I am a fantastically skinny fucker at 5'11 and 120 pounds most days.) Working on good deadlift form next, which I hope will be beneficial in my new job where I'm regularly moving 30-40 pound bags of dog food and cat litter from location to location.

Not quite there yet, give it a few months.

As always, I was pulling sumo. Lots of chalk and lots of pho after.

DEADLIFT DAY

Deadlift: 440 x 5, 500 x 3, 560 x 1, 440 x 5, 5, 5

landmines

No PR's there, but damn pleased.

Now, at this point I had two options: I could either do RDL's or do some light squats for volume. I still felt like pulling things, not pushing. And this fucking pocket-Wendigo we have running around here is pulling off all sorts of heroic and inspiring feats. So, 425 x 10. The last two were ugly, but there you have it.



Emboldened by that, I attempted the notorious one-arm ring pullup, as well.



Nailed it.




My wife put some work in, too! She's doing a full-body split and today was goblet squats, barbell squats, RDL's, OHP, and t-bar rows followed by landmines.

My wrist and thumb are still healing so I'm still on the high rep low weight train. Nothing exciting to post about except my weight is trended down from 75.8 to 74.5 over the past week, which is pretty much exactly what I need to happen.

Do some farmer's walks, bro! That will carry over really well into both your job and build your grip for climbing.

Also, consistent 1.20 x bodyweight squats for sets of five is bangin'.

Will do! Definitely have access to equipment that I can use for those.

*surfaces from swimming pool full of golden cake batter, slurps down some chocolate frosting from the can before speaking*

damn Mokrappers, I'm impressed

*resubmerges*

today was heavy shoulders day. Brodin rewarded me for being tested yesterday with a good one today.

overhead press: 95 for 8 to warm up, then 125 for 8, 135 for 8 and 6, then 125 for 8. much better.

cable side lateral raises: 30 lbs on each side for 3x8, 6.

Arnold presses: back up to 60s for 3x8, 7, 4. really solid!

scaptions: 40s for 2x10, 6.

heavy DB shrugs: 115s for 3x10, 9, 7. substantial rep gain here. 120s aren't that far away now

Damn, dude. Pretty soon, when you non-verbally communicate that you don't know something, people will get your message for miles.

I think I'm going to sign up for a goruck challenge this october. I'm really falling in love with the simple joys of walking with a bunch of sand on my back

I felt weird pain in my right hand earlier this evening, so I used that as an excuse to not work out tonight. I really need to get back to it. It might help pull me out of this low point I feel like my life is in right now. I mean it's not going to change the other shitty things around me, but at least for that bit it'll clear my head from anything but lifting the iron.

Hey, I'm a beginner, and I feel like sharing!

Two weeks ago I cancelled the gym membership at work that I haven't used in a year and a half (because they're not open when my shift is over, I'm terrible in the mornings ... and, honestly, I'm just not motivated by the gym) and bought a set of adjustable dumbbells and a flat bench to use at home. I've found some workouts that I like, and it's sticking.

I'm a little sore, but mostly it feels so damn good. When I was a skinny beanpole person back in high school freshman P.E. — forever and a day and 50 pounds of paunch ago — my max on a bench press was something like 130 pounds. So at first I kind of felt like Fatty McWeakerson going back to a couple of 12.5 or 15 pound dumbbells. But I have faith in the process, and on a couple of upper body lifts next week I might jump up in weight, though so far I've been trying to focus on form.

I know that most people suggest barbell training for beginners, and I get why ... but I don't have room for a barbell set in my apartment, and right now I'm just happy that these dumbbells at home are getting me to do what needs to be done.

Anyway, hello!

Welcome, chady!

I've been lifting for about a year now, but I'm still mostly beginner-ish myself, and dumbbells are my primary tool. Someday I hope to have the money and space to set up a barbell bench in my basement, but these are great for now. You might also want to try a kettlebell for something a little different.

Oh, and don't be intimidated by some of the numbers you'll see here. We've got some crazy lifters in this thread.

I'm a proponent of dumbbells. You can't get the same numbers of raw pounds lifted, but that's because you're using a lot more small stabilizing muscles for control. Which means they also hit those stabilizing muscles more. Which is generally good for strength/joint health! And those lifts still hit the major muscle groups just fine.

The only thing I really prefer a barbell for is squats (definitely always) and deadlifts (8 times of 10) for the stability and, how you say, solid feeling.

I definitely recommend barbells for squats and deadlifts. But yeah, dumbbells are nice otherwise and there's no shame in using them instead of a barbell for all the other lifts.

I'm currently wondering what I should do about my right hand. It hurts like hell right now when I stretch it, but the muscles right around the wrist feel like they're tangled up or something. Like it feels like I need to stretch my arm out enough to get it untangled or something, but that shit hurts so much. It's not the kind of severe pain a broken bone would have (I think, but I've never broken a bone so I don't know) but it's also not the first time this specific part of my right hand/arm has hurt. So I think I should check it out at a doctor's office or something.

The one you probably want is the sekkotsuin but they're probably just going to tell you to rest it. Did you fall down and sprain it?
