I'll check again when I do my set next week Lynk, and thanks for the stretches I do one of them before every workout.

If you think anyone on here should be using the program of a geared competitive bodybuilder, you're nuts.

Bodybuilding is lame these days anyways. There's some wrong with guys who want shave their body, turn their skin orange, get greased up and prance around on a stage in a banana hammock.
This thread isn't only for people who need to lose weight.


And besides, I only posted the video to show some total idiot who uses machines. Only an idiot would take it as a suggestion.

Oh man that deadlift video was hard to watch. It hurt my lower back just watching it.

Back days.

Try going lighter until you get the technique right. Then you can start adding weight.

Ordered some Clean Gainer on boxing day from Rivalus' website- 40% off, came to $53.99, plus it was free shipping.

If you think you should be doing extra leg exercises after you squat and deadlift then you aren't training hard enough.
Speaking of "not training hard enough"...if you seriously follow squats up with deadlifts, then I'd almost guarantee you're not working either one of them hard enough, or lift some relatively light weight.

Tiring yourself out with one of the most intense compound lifts, and then following that up with probably the next most intense compound lift...genius.

And btw if your entire leg circuit consists of just squats and deadlifts, you are severely under-training your quads.

I've already stated that I use jellydick weights.

These days I don't. Or at least not with heavy (for me) weights. I'll do heavy deadlifts and then some light sets of squats. I used to do heavy squats then press followed up by deadlifts.

But I'm not the one who is looking to do leg presses after deadlifting.

Leg circuit? Are you some aspiring bodybuilding?

Don't be worrying about my quads. I already have a hard enough time fitting them into straight leg pants.

And I'm guessing your definition of "lifts" is gloved bicep curls in the squat rack. So by your definition, no, I don't lift.

This week was discouraging.

I went to gym all week save for Friday, fighting the flu. Didn't lose a pound, and instead of feeling good after each session, I just felt really meh.

I'm eating healthier too, and calorie counting, I'm having trouble keeping UP with the maximum amount of calories. Appetite isn't there.

trying to drink water consistently too.

Frustrating, but I think the flu had a big part of it...oh well tomorrow is rest day and going back on monday.

You may want to take a few days off if you are feeling THAT ******.

It's not a habit, but if I feel ****** I'll either half my workout or skip it entirely.

Now I had decided before my crappy workout on Thursday that this week would be a de load week.

I expect a better session tomorrow.

Feel better.

You are better off giving it few days rest to get over the flu. Tried training with the flu but you are kinda half-assing it and just going thru the motions.

I follow squats with deadlifts, or to be specific, back and front squats then deadlifts.

You'd be wrong, I work hard on squats and deadlifts. With squats I push myself to whatever I can handle, with deadlifts I set 90kg (my bodyweight) while I am working on my flexibility as I deadlift off of a 20kg plate/blocks rather than the floor.

It all depends on what you are used to. But I appreciate the judgement.

Crisis averted. Numbers are what they should be.

An easy week every 4-6 is nice.

Back to normal Wednesday.

A bdwt deadlift is pretty damn light (no offence)

And if the bar starts elevated, that's less work

I was never too concerned as I figured I was just fatigued from the holiday. Tired in general and I had eaten things I hadn't eaten for months. I'm not saying that's what it was, but you never know how your body is going to react to things like flour when you never eat it, and then you're having three pieces of cake on Christmas.

Still though it was nice to get a good solid session in.

How are you feeling?

None taken. As I said its short term while I improve my flexibillity. Which is why I can handle squatting then deadlifting. I just didn't appreciate the judgement from the otherguy when the circumstances weren't known.

If I was pushing myself hard on both then fine, probably not sensible.....I know that already

Pretty good! Did a lighter leg workout today.

I know there's quite a bit of people posting all these crazy leg workouts, but I've been sticking to three leg routines, with body weight (since I haven't gotten the correct posturing down): Squats, Lunges and calf rises. Sometimes I'll do leg extensions with the machine, but I decided to skip that today.

Definitely feel it lol. But I didn't feel drained like I did last week, but good afterwards, so the flu must be going away soon here!

Finally started chest lifts again (flys and presses) after tearing my inner chest wall in 2010..... only to feel like I tweaked it again.... How depressing. Now I'll be on the shelf for a couple weeks most likely.

I don't get it though, to avoid tweaking it I avoided direct-pec exercises and went shoulder and back heavy (deads, squats, crucifixes, lat raises, military presses). They were all fine, no chest pain. Soon as I start pec flys, felt the tweak. Lifts such as crucifixes still use your pecs though, which is what I don't understand.
