Request for training advice

Hey I'm not exactly new here, but I'm new back to posting again. Over half a year ago I'd been doing the Stronglifts 5x5 program, but I feel like it progressed too quickly for my body-type/metabolism/whatever. I ended up injuring my back (a problem which still gives me pain now) doing squats, while ...

Re: Trillium's Stronglifts (+) blog

Thanks for the advice. I will start trying the warmup you linked, as well as doing some pilates before lifting each time (which I stopped one or two weeks before injuring my back). I'm back in the gym again, but squats and deads are not feeling so good, so I'm going to make some changes to how I wor...

Best to you too gsop, hope you get it all sorted without losing too much weight. Hope to hear from you when you're better and back in training :)

Re: Trillium's Stronglifts (+) blog

I haven't been posting much, mostly because my workouts have been more sporadic than I would like. This morning I went to the gym and warmed up on the rowing machine for 5 minutes, then warmed up on squats, doing 5 at just bar (20k), 5 with 50kg, then onto 90kg (I have been doing this method with tw...

Re: Trillium's Stronglifts (+) blog

So, after two weeks off I finally got myself back in the gym this morning and it felt GREAT. I wasn't feeling very well for a couple of weeks, but I took the time to read the stronglifts report that gsop linked me to above, and it cleared a lot of things up for me. I wasn't too ambitious with starti...

Re: gsop_3's body transformation workout log

Same deal here gsop. Rinsing with saline (or seawater, if you're near a clean ocean!) helps clear things out a lot, gets right up in those sinuses and flushes everything out. You can make it up yourself with seasalt for next to nothing, too, just get one of those little rubber pump ball things (like...

Re: Chewy's Powerlifting Log

Yep, situps with nothing on the feet are tough! When I used to do situps I'd find myself cheating a bit by pressing my feet together ;P

Re: gsop_3's body transformation workout log

Kiwi fruit in the green smoothie are great. Leave the skin on for extra fiber!

Sweet, bench and rows both are impressive :) I'd like to see more about your diet these days if you have the time.

Re: Ninja Journal Version 5.0

Surprising how many green smoothie blends you can make that are seemingly horrible but actually palatable, mix it up!

Re: gsop_3's body transformation workout log

Nice one on the doms :) Do you keep your shoulders off the ground/bench for the leg raises? I used to raises with my head against the ground, only recently realised I can increase the ab challenge by lifting my head and shoulders up while keeping my pelvis tilted forward. Now I feel it a lot less th...

Re: Chewy's Powerlifting Log

What's happening with your OHP? I remember reading a while back that you were pressing more than this... I'm looking forward to reading more as you go through your new routine, always informative and motivational :)
