  1. This. I have been using convict conditioning and it is awesome.
  2. I mixed a creatine stack once with some protein powder and a pre workout supplement. Oh sweet Jesus never again. I didn't leave the bathroom for hours.
  3. Thanks for the great response. I will have to have a look into decompression methods the next time that I go to my physio as frankly I have ever heard of it. I have been doing a lot of Hindu squats and lunges at the moment and I'm as sore as hell as a result. The gym that I'm a member of has an extensive array of machines and I think that they have a reverse hyper extension machine so I will check it out. The belt looks like the way forward - I will have to pick one up.
  4. Hi, I herniated L4 and L5 discs in my back last year deadlifting and after some serious physio and a cortisone injection in my sciatic nerve things are now almost back to normal. I have started to Strength Train again but I'm not going to squat or deadlift for obvious reasons. What are the best exercises to build powerful legs without Squats or Deadlifts?
  5. Interesting. I have had this a few times and always sound deaf trying to talk to people afterwards for an hour or so. I always put it down to having earphones in and listening to oldskool Downset too loud. Now, maybe not.
  6. I have been an on/off Vegetarian for a long time now and have decided to start doing this properly and get my nutrition dialled in with a Vegan diet. Does anyone know of any online personal trainers/nutritionists that are Vegan that can help athletes with their goals? I'm pretty lean at the moment and I'm in decent shape but I want to make sure that I'm making the transition successfully. Cheers
  7. I have been doing BJJ and MMA for a while now (I'm almost a blue belt in BJJ) and I'm looking at doing a 2 month trip to LA and possibly Vegas next year and wondered if anyone had any idea of who I should hit up for some quality BJJ instruction.
  8. The title says it all. Does anyone know of any places where these are available in Australia or New Zealand? Cheers - Maximus.
  9. 15/12/2009 Workout of the day 'The Spike" 400m run 10 Wall Ball (8kg) Throw a heavy medicine ball against a wall 10 feet above your head and catch it into a deep squat 10 Box Jumps 10 Knees to elbows 10 burpees to snatches (20kg Powerbag) 6 rounds for time. Maximus.
  10. 14/12/2009. HIIT training in the morning on empty stomach. 20 minutes of Interval Training followed by 2 sets of 20kg KB swings and push ups. Workout of the day. "The Beast" 2.4km run Leg Press (Bodyweight) 150 reps 1000m row (3:45) 25 Chin Ups 50 Push Ups 500m row (1:45) Total Time: 45:34. This can be performed faster, the run at the start is easy but it is hard to pace yourself when you know that your legs need to be intact for the leg press and the rows. Training is harder when the sun comes out and the gym is bathed in sunshine. It is coming into summer now, so some of the workouts will be taken outside. Maximus.
  11. 12-13/12/2009. No workouts and adequate food intake although not adhering to protein targets. Have reset plan for the next working week and will attempt to start HIIT KB training in the morning. Maximus.
  12. Interesting reading. Just a question, regarding your food intake, do you time that with your lifts as well?. I mean do you eat an hour or so before your training and then eat within 30 minutes after lifting? Also are you aware of your protein intake carpared to your carbs/fats etc. Also if you are looking for a decent protein powder that you can have that mixes well with water, I would suggest Sun Warrior. It is by far the best tasting one on the market in my opinion. The rest are simply terrible that I have tried. Maximus
  13. Kettlebell workouts are an excellent all round fitness system if done correctly. I have witnessed many people however trying to do swings/snatches incorrectly putting there back in a terrible danger and I wince at this. There are many people out there and systems that truely work. I personally own a few Mike Mahler DVD's and find these excellent. http://www.mikemahler.com/ The man certainly knows that he is talking about. Maximus.
  14. 10/12/2009. Light Cardio and stretching session. 11/12/2009. Session with personal trainer. Explosive session with cables and power bags. Explosive movements with cables (pulling and thrusting) combined with throwing of power bags over shoulders, ball slams and shoulder lifts. Four rounds of four all supersetted and focused. Thrusters (20kg) KB Snatches (20kg) Alternating KB Snatches with squats (20kg) DB Lunge presses. (19kg) Chip Ups 5 (full rotation) Four Rounds 1 hour session with stretch and cool down. Good to get out some force and learn some powerful movements in the process. Completely exhausted at the end of the session. Maximus.
  15. What are your goals? You can make a great deal of gains and progress just with bodyweight or unconventional equipment such as Kettlebells and swiss balls. All you need is some space and some imagination. Maximus.
