Re: Night time dehydration

Sometimes I notice if I sleep somewhere it's really warm I wake up with a dry throat, same if I fall asleep on my back or some weird position (not very often). I think feeling thirsty in the morning is normal though, at least for me

Re: Olympic dumbbell handles

Only way to know is to weigh them dude. At our work the normal handles weigh more than the thick handles... I have a pair of them I hardly use anymore. Don't miss the days of trying to balance these on my thighs before kicking them back to do chest press on the bench, parts of screw clamp collars di...

Re: Weak hands and forearms - need guidance for grip strengt

Before overloading your grip with a tonne of grip/forearm exercises, make sure you have the basics down; Use chalk (this might be the most important, if you have sweaty or clammy hands your grip will suffer severely) Don't use gloves (take care of your hands to avoid callous tears. chopping them eve...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

Also meant to mention the last few months I've stopped wearing a belt completely, because basically I don't like wearing them. For some reason I could not flatten my lower back when doing a deadlift with a belt on. I practiced and practiced but couldn't do it. It feels 10x better without a belt, and...

Re: Reintroduction from Scotland

Cheers for all the kind messages!

asparagus, I haven't had the best year training wise. I haven't used a belt for months, working on my raw strength. But hopefully I'll beat my old PB of 245kg without a belt at some point in the future :)

Just made a massive update to my log!

Hi everyone! :D It's been a while, so here's a brief summary of my last year of training; Towards the end of 2012 the warehouse was getting fucking freezing to train in, I'd not long started a long distance relationship which made me drop most Fridays. Motivation was low, numbers weren't good, wasn'...

Reintroduction from Scotland

Not sure how many people will remember me, but I stopped keeping a log on here about a year ago (due to other comitments). I've been strength training for about 4 years now (wow, doesn't feel that long!), done a couple of amateur powerlifting/team strongman competitions during that time. Notable pro...
