I fucking hate pullups more than any of them

1. Dead lifts
2. Bench press
3. Squats
4. Shoulder press (my shoulders are embarrassingly week)


so is your spelling

pull ups for me are a wonder as i assumed i could never do them. now i get a solid 6 and can meekly pull out 10 if i had to

i hate deadliftin

squating isnt bad but i feel like i could still do more weight but i try to do all my exercises at something i can manage without dying

bench is meh. some days i can get 245 for 6 or 8 reps and sometimes i work with 185

my favorite lifts

one arm dumbbell rows
seated press
incline bench

I always loved chins because I was skinny, then I became less enamored with them as I bulked, but now that I'm cutting, chins are great again. I've done 10 sets of 10 the last couple of workouts so I'm going to start doing 5x10 and then 5 sets weighted to failure.

Oh and farmer's walks are awesome. You feel a little ridiculous as it gets heavy and your grip starts to wain but they're great for your grip and core and really you'll feel it basically everywhere.

really, nothing more than deadlifts, pullups, and farmer's walks are necessary on back day

last night i did a condensed leg day (squats, leg press, bulgarian split squats) and then jumped in the pool for a 600m swim. i did twelve 50m sprints, and after each sprint jumped on the deck for 10 diamond pushups

i am wrecked

Strat, thanks for the resistance band recommendation. I love these things. Using them to train for the get jacked thread and also to incorporate a little workout in my mornings with the new dog.

Cut is officially over. Now experimenting with a recomp. I'm not overly optimistic but plan to give this a go for the next 8 weeks. Going to work hard and hope for the best.

Perfect for both my lifestyle and my novice level understanding of fitness.

The last couple of mornings I've been walking through the upper body and lower body suggestions that came with the bands using light resistance. I can feel the healing powers of tension and exercise in some problem areas on my shoulders and lower back right away. The arm workouts are a good primer, and then the lower body workouts on the floor really get my heart rate up. These things are amazing.

Should I be giving this routine a break every other day with such light workouts? Not sure I'm using enough resistance to really need to give my muscles a rest, but what do I know?
