Exercise thread

Exercise is a great tonic against depression. Your core and quad strength must be absurd.

I try to plank every day for at least a minute.

I got deep into jump rope and effed up my mcl on my left leg. I used to be able to do 6-8 pistol squats easily on each leg. Now I fall over on my left side, when I pistol squat. I’m trying to rehab it with wall squats. Good exercise talk, homie.

I love jump rope too

That was part of our routine till I hurt myself!!!

It was such a good part of the set we used to do

Tonight between sets we did the row machine for 5 minutes…

@thebalvenie

Have you done this challenge? I got through all of it doing squats with a 35# kb, but I can’t get very far with pushups (2 minutes max).

It seems like such an efficient way to work out. Under five minutes. I bet you’ll get closer with the pushups than me. You have to do a static hold and not rest on the ground for the “down” sections.


#205

no!
but i’m always looking to bring new stuff in.

right now we are sticking to the current weight, routine and such…i’ve add the row machine in.

i know for sure i am getting stronger in my legs and other areas. the pyramiding has helped a ton and i’m not as sore!!!

I’d be curious about your thoughts/experience with this.

I’ve been seeing more articles about isometrics (holds with only body weight), more time under tension.

#212

I bet his DMs on here are out of control from all the ladies (2 +) after reading that routine.

Calf raises in between person 2
30 normal, 30 toes out, 30 toes in (5 sets total)

I hadn’t heard of these. THANKS.


#213

The single calf raise on a stair with a kbell is also really good and isolates the calf

@thebalvenie

Here’s a guy you might like. Quads that won’t quit and a absurd love of burpees.


#215

I was planning to go out for a long walk in the woods to look for morel mushrooms this morning. Sadly, when I got up and looked outside most of the 4” of snow we got yesterday was still on the ground.

I guess I’ll walk on this stupid fucking treadmill again.
