    This one is like a small city I hear. The only thing I'm not into about gyms is all the naked old dudes. Not that I don't enjoy looking at old shriveled ballsacks. I get like $150 off per year to a gym membership included with my job. Might as well use it.

    A friend of mine said he went in the sauna once and there was some old fucker doing crunches buck ass naked. that's the kind of shit I don't understand. I mean, I'm sure I won't give a fuck when I'm old, but at least put a fucking towel on. Or do your naked crunches somewhere else.

    Yeah that's where all the buzz started for doing those. At least that's when I first learned of it, but it took someone pushing to get me to try it.

    After yesterday's session I couldn't rep anything after 4plates on deadlift. My entire core is beat to hell.


    Stiff-Legged Barbell Deadlift:
    135 lb x 10 reps (+77 pts)
    135 lb x 12 reps (+79 pts)
    Warmup.

    Barbell Deadlift:
    315 lb x 3 reps (+178 pts)
    365 lb x 3 reps (+249 pts)
    365 lb x 3 reps (+249 pts)
    365 lb x 3 reps (+249 pts)
    405 lb x 1 reps (+223 pts)
    425 lb x 1 reps (+255 pts)
    445 lb x 1 reps (+292 pts)
    465 lb x 1 reps (+334 pts)
    After yesterday's workout I couldn't rep anything once I got to 4plate.

    Rack Deadlift:
    405 lb x 5 reps (+254 pts)
    405 lb x 5 reps (+254 pts)
    405 lb x 5 reps (+254 pts)
    315 lb x 12 reps (+167 pts)

    Wide-Grip Pulldown Behind The Neck:
    110 lb x 15 reps (+34 pts)
    140 lb x 12 reps (+41 pts)
    170 lb x 10 reps (+49 pts)
    185 lb x 8 reps (+52 pts)

    Wide-Grip Lat Pulldown:
    170 lb x 15 reps (+52 pts)

    Wow, real talk that is obviously a really really bad idea. That looks like a great way to snap all your shit up. (talking about the no hands squats). Doin shit like that its only a matter of time before you hurt yourself in the gym trying to do something that won't benefit you anyway. When it comes to squats im done doing anything less then 6 reps. Unless you are power lifting I don't think doing 1 rep max or 3-4 reps are A. Good for your back (again great way to snap some shit up) and B. Don't think its the best way to get the most out of your workout.

    Not really. You move your hands to catch it like you would a regular squat or just let it roll off your back behind you, neither situation leading to injury.

    And the most jacked lifters do a mix of low rep/high report workouts. Stretching too hard in the morning could hypothetically snap your shit up so going around being fearful of lifting heavy is not going to get you anywhere. Low reps might not be for you but no need to add some unwarranted fear behind your reasoning. IMO.

    I got a pvc pipe to do some foam rolling, hopefully that starts to help

    The whole reason you use your hands is to take the pressure off of your lower back when you squat, as well as balance. If you're doing no hand squats your putting literally the whole weight you are lifting on your lower back and neck. Clearly that's not a good idea. Again this is just imo but I mean...lets be serious here that is clearly not a good idea. I'm not scared of liting heavy weights, its just the majority of injuries (especially serious injuries) do come from low rep high weight sets (I.E. max outs). Especially on exercises like dead lifts, squats, benchpress. Now again im not saying don't do these, this is all my opinion (that I've come to from experience and watching people around me who have injured themselves). I guess it all depends on why you are going to the gym. If you're just going to the gym to get in shape, gain weight (or lose), improve your lifestyle, and improve your general look I really don't see a reason in even risking injuring yourself permanently with something like a no hand squat. I've only been working out seriously for about 2 months now so take all this how you will. And again this is just my opinion not trying to insult or disrespect anyone.

    In the squat, your back drawn tight and your delts hold the bar, your hands only to make sure it doesn't fall off. If you rely on your hands to hold the weight too often you'll get some inflammation in your elbow joints eventually, especially as you increase the weight. Granted no one has perfect form 100% of the time, so I use my hands/arms too much sometimes, much to the chagrin of my wrists.

    Injuries seem more likely to happen on lower reps, but not necessarily. Crossfit is notorious for high-reps and high injury rates. Plus some of us, myself included are only working with 60-85% of our maxes for high sets/low reps, only going for 1RM every so often(myself rarely ever). But I could just as easily tear a hamstring doing my easy 225x10 light day squats as I could with 3 sets of 335x3.

    I suggest reading many different ideas on lifting before deciding what's going to be good, as well as experimentation. I started back casually 3 years ago and got serious in the past year and I've become a hypocrite at least ten times over because what I thought compared to what actually worked for me in the gym were completely different. And don't take any of this as combative or dismissive because that's not what I'm trying to be. I'm always up for discussion of different lifting ideologies.

    Yeah I have been doing a good amount of research, and I've gone back on quite a few things I've said as well. My bad it just seems like a dangerous idea to me, but then again I've only been going serious for 2 months. I've been going for about a year total but only really started focusing on my diet and routine in the past 2 months.

    All the rep scheme shit is going to apply to specific goals which are always going to be unique to the individual. I could probably squat or bench high rep weight for years but all I'd be good at is squat/bench high rep weight and my body wouldn't really get any stronger because I'm not providing a stimulus that requires adaptation by my body.

    Honestly when I got back into it I had no real goals other than to lose weight, in the past six or seven months I've lost approximately 0.00 lbs but look better than I have in years and I've been doing heavy weight/low rep (relative to the individual of course).

    Forgot to mention that quality of rest and nutrition are going to play a crucial part in avoiding injuries, as well as the obvious need for good form.

    Yeah that's really where im getting the serious part into my routine. My diet has improved significantly. Im focusing almost harder on that then I am the gym. Im not going high reps, I just try not to go any lower then 6. Though I did do a set of 4 squatting yesterday on legs for my final set.
