Re: Workout finishers?

Those look pretty cool. I'll have to give the 50-40-30-20-10 stuff and burbees a try once I'm in better shape.

Re: Post your Squat Pics!

From what I've understood having your feet straight isn't all that important. The important part is having your knees go to the same direction as your toes and not letting the knees buckle inward at any point. Personally I can't even keep a narrow stance and my feet pointing straight comfortably whi...

Re: Swinging bells and throwing punches

Just got back from Defendo practice. It was a pretty nice one, as we went through pretty much every basic technique from punches and kicks to releases from common chokes. My concentration just wasn't all that good, as I only got about 3 hours of sleep last night, as some asshole decided to start a l...

Re: What Are You Doing To Work Your Abs ?

Personally I don't like crunches, especially while holding extra weight. Last time they just ended up making my lower back pain worse. Kettlebell windmills and turkish get-ups are interesting, but my shoulders tend to get tired far before my midsection. Ab wheel and various plank positions are prett...

Workout finishers?

I was wondering if other people here use finishers at the end of their workout? I've been doing simple experiementing for couple weeks and have really liked them. I mostly do them to better my conditioning and hopefully help me lose some more fat :D I also take a minute of rest after every set of fi...

Swinging bells and throwing punches

Okay, this is the second time I try to keep a training journal here. A little background: I've been training with various intensity for about 4 years now. During 2009 I really got into bodybuilding and hired a coach to help me. During that time I got into "best" shape of my life, meaning I...

Re: Post your 2011 "Before" photos here

I now weight about 82kg (180lbs) http://i.imgur.com/V89FC.jpg My best bodypart is propably my legs. Th...

Re: IRV's quest to lose fat

It's been a long time since I last logged in here. For some reason I find it hard to be active on any web sites :P But at least I've been working out all this time, instead of just sitting on a couch ;) I recently hired a coach to help me complete my fat-loss goals and train me for the fire academy ...

Re: IRV's quest to lose fat

another weekly update :roll: Anyway, I have made suprising progress this week, despite not eating completely to the plan on three days and working a nasty schedule. I worked 6 days this week for 8-12 hours a day. Because of this i had to move my Thursday and friday sessions one day forward and was t...

Re: Pea Protein recovery drink recipes?

I use MyProtein brand. Unfortunately the taste is a bit strong and salty. 1 dl is about 30 grams of pea protein powder, containing about 24,6 grams of protein. I ordered it from their website couple of months back. There's now a new shop in finland that sells pea protein. I don't know the brand, but...

Re: IRV's quest to lose fat

Things are looking up. After a month of unemployment I got a new job and I'm starting on monday :D I'll have to tweak my eating plan a bit, but that shouldn't be much of a problem. This also means less worry about money, so i can focus more on training and the like :) Anyway, yesterday was measuring...

Pea Protein recovery drink recipes?

I've had problems with pea protein for a long time. The taste is unpleasant and it's hard to mask it with anything. Thus far only decent shake i've made was to blend lot of berries along the protein, which mask the taste to some degree. Worst thing I tried was adding cocoa powder. It tasted absolute...
