Level 1 Gains


#81

Kettlebell Swings got me fucked up


#82

Feels bad, gym will be closed all next week Monday the 19th through Friday the 23rd.
Guess I am breaking out the bike and doing 17 to 20 mi bike rides again :smiley:
Could be a good time to work on core. Been concentrating on arms and legs, squeezing out the fat lol


#83

The proper usage of kettle bells is to not use them.


#84


It’s double exp weekend on RuneScape gotta get gains


#85

Update Walmart fucked up the shipping delayed another week :frowning:


#86

I feel like you wouldnt get to do anything but workout since it says someone for all of them


#87

I edited it to be my clan and it’s still every second


#88

I feel like the XP would be the every second thing unless your clan is big aF


#89

It’s max amount of members in clan and about 60% are online plus mobile is out for p2p (side load if not in beta)
My arms are killing me it’s been a while since I felt the burn


#90

Lol there was something similar for Dark Souls every time you died against Mook, Boss, Invasion, falling, etc.

Got swole in those days, son.


#91

guys! first of all thanks for the motivation! im still not working out as hard as i should but i do way more stuff than usual so progress is there. anyhow:

what are your best exercises to do to get some sweet pec gainz?


#92

Most people exhaust their triceps or delts on bench before their chest. Easy remedy to that is do flies before bench.

Dumbbell flys (heavy ish) 4 to 6 sets 5 to 8 reps.
Barbell Benchpress 5 sets of 5 to 6 reps.

Do whatever accessory lifts you want, pushups, dips, cable flys, etc. Doing the above two to three days a week I went from 46 - 48 (depending on clothing brand) to 50 - 52 chest size in a year. I was almost single digit bf but realistically I was like 12 or 15%

So fat but not fat :grin:

“Space-age music pill invented by a doctor”

I can’t fuckin’ breathe. This dude is hilarious.

I love kettlebells though. Great way to get a full body workout done pretty much anywhere, without resorting to just your own body weight.


#94

Ehh, everything you can do with a kettlebell, you can do with a dumbbell.

To each their own though.


#95

a jug of milk full of water you say ?


#96

If that’s your thing.

Personally, I like car tires and oil containers. When that’s not available, I’ll settle for moving furniture.


#97

cheap weights for those who don’t know can also use laundry detergent bottle containers


#98

Anything that has mass and is easy to pick up, for that matter. I used to do shrugs with our metal patio chairs.

#100

I prefer the bigger movements (bench, squat, dead, ohp, pullup) to come before the isolations.

Not really sure of any concrete reason why, aside from allowing me to overload a little easier with the compound movement, then I can isolate and finish off the smaller muscles, either with accessory movements, or with something for aesthetics.
