  1. What is your aversion to a gym? When you say you don't want to go to the gym, does that mean you want to do bodyweight workouts/low equipment workouts at home? Or that you don't want to do any kind of resistance training? "Toning up" is largely done in the kitchen. Clean up your diet and eat less calories than you expend. As for workouts, "Never Gymless" and/or "Full Throttle Conditioning" both feature some incredibly hard conditioning drills that can be done with little or no equipment, plus easier routines to work up to the tough stuff. They'll be worth their weight in silver when you find what works for you. Work hard and you'll come back next season a real contender... The skies the limit.
  2. Jump rope first thing in the AM. Work up to 3 x 3m with 1m rest between sets. Do this at max intensity, 5+ days a week. Depending on current fitness levels, you may want to start with 45 second sets, working your way up to 3 minutes. Pace should be fast, and it should never get to where you're plodding easily through the 3 minute sets. Aim to always jump faster and harder. Do tough conditioning workouts 3x week. Buy the book Never Gymless for some incredibly hard conditioning drills sans equipment. Are you male or female?
  3. Stronglifts is a decent program, and a decent program is a decent program. That said, it is basically a rip off of Rippetoes (superior, imo) Starting Strength program. Suggest that to people.
  4. Since no one has responded, I'll chip in. http://www.ironmind.com/ironmind/opencms/Main/captainsofcrush.html Get em, and use em. You can buy them as hard as you like Rock climb Pullups with only fingertips wrapped around top of bar Rope climbing/Rope pullups/Towel pullups My forearm strength/grip was the strongest ever when I rode BMX daily.
  5. I just canceled my Anytime Fitness membership, rates are hovering around $42-50 for my area these days, so it's not really any cheaper than most other gyms. The 24 hour access is nice, but there are many versions of Anytime Fitness, some clubs are decent, some outright suck (usually their "express" facilities that rarely have DBs over 50 lbs., power racks, benches or any barbells whatsoever). Worth checking out, but probably won't be low-cost. Good call. OP, do post back when you find out how much they want for membership.
  6. Without knowing how you define reasonable, 24 hour fitness in Denver will run you around $35 a month, maybe less if you get some kind of "deal", which I think is pretty reasonable. There is also a Fitness Anytime, which will probably be $20-$30ish, but won't have as many amenities (no sauna, pool, basketball courts, etc) Both will get you access to other clubs in the US... helpful if you travel.
  7. I am actually going to start making a cool vegan power weight lifting shirt. I really don't care about selling them, I just want to have like 10 of them for myself, and always have a clean workout shirt. And i've got the ability to do dumb shit like that
  8. oh! I believe you did say you'd send one at my request, but maybe I misread. how much are you paying for t shirts? shoot me a PM, i'm in the clothing business
  9. send me my shirts and i'll get you some good en's!
  10. cool comp. i'm feeling stronger and bigger every day. look forward to the next one.
  11. and 8 months later I bought the Ironwork II from dynamic fitness for $122 shipped. Great buy. They make a huge difference. Your feet feel like they are stuck to the floor. Really solid.
  12. definitely gonna have to sit on this one for a few days
  13. Do you do half curls? 3/4 bench press? I don't see why people will do full ROM with certain exercises, yet other movements are the worse thing in the world. Full range of motion in every movement FTW.
  14. I go as deep as I can (like the guy in the demonstation). No shoulder problems for me. No shoulder discomfort for me. It feels natural going through the whole range of motion. Currently using 45#'s for dips. Can't wait to build a dip station at the house! I say do what your comfortable with. If your dipping really deep and your shoulders feel like a pepper grinder, then i'd probably not go so deep
  15. Is that the world we are living in????? Being concerned about what our neighbours might think about us??? My neighbors would call the cops. Thats one thing I love about my neighborhood. Everyone very well understands the police aren't there to help you. And everyone understands if they snitch on the wrong person horrible things will likely happen to them and their family. So everyone minds their own business and we never have police presence on the block.
  16. Neither neighbor uses their backyard. I'm free to do whatever I want in mine. Besides, I check the mail in my underwear. Not a fan of clothes

  18. Allow me to introduce myself. I'm the founder of the Anti-Robert Cheeke Society. In this letter, I will tell you what made me form such an organization and how I plan to use it to build a new understanding that can transport us to tomorrow. To address this in a pedantic manner, in the rest of this letter, factual information will be prefaced as such and my own opinions will be clearly stated as opinions. For instance, it is a fact that if Robert Cheeke is going to talk about higher standards then he needs to live by those higher standards. Ever since he decided to threaten, degrade, poison, bulldoze, and kill this world of ours, his consistent, unvarying line has been that he acts in the public interest. If we fail to proscribe Robert and his admirers as the most dangerous enemies of the people then all of our sacrifices will be as forgotten as the sand blowing across Ozymandias's dead empire. The "decay of that colossal wreck," as the poet Shelley puts it, teaches us that Robert has delivered exactly the opposite of what he had previously promised us. Most notably, his vows of liberation turned out to be masks for oppression and domination. And, almost as troubling, Robert's vows of equality did little more than convince people that Robert avers that human beings should be appraised by the number of things and the amount of money they possess instead of by their internal value and achievements. As you can no doubt determine from comments like that, facts and Robert Cheeke are like oil and water. Finally, to those of you who are faithfully helping me clarify and correct some of the inaccuracies present in Robert Cheeke's biases, let me extend, as always, my deepest gratitude and my most affectionate regards. Please disregard everything in this message. Its a joke. I had to type this on the end so it blends in, therefor not ruining the joke before you even read it. I'd never speak badly of Mr. Robert Cheeke
  19. i'm gonna have to sit on this one.. how long do I have to decide??
