now lets add stuff to the stats.
i work out in circuits so 1 excercise after another
like pull ups, push ups, benching, squats, push press.
well i can do like 15 pull ups. not all the time but the most.
i can do like 40+ good push ups going pretty far down
i can do like 12 reps at 82lbs in benching.
i use like two 42 lbs dumbells for a set of 12 but could do more.
i also like picking up and throwing a 60 lbs dumbell and i do full squats with it also!
wowo I have not been to the gym in awhile for that reason, been working out at home just to maintain using work out bands but last time I was in the gym I think I benched about 350 and I was doing curls at about 80 or so pounds per arm.. don't really recall much elsebut I am getting ready to get back into the gym with a cardio focus and to work on my grappling, but I will be hitting the weights as muscle is the only thing that burns fat in the body. so I will update in the future
HIIT is a smart idea, I gotta give that a try sometime.
I saw people adding workout stats so I thought I'd throw in a couple of mine:
Bench: 12 reps at 230 (usually 2 sets a day, spaced out)
Kickpress: 24 reps at 415 (I also have big legs)
Overheadpress: 24 reps at 220
Just for fun: rhr of 51bpm
Hmm Iwonder if that is sarcasm... Regardless I was not 100% natural at that time I was using 1-AD and other substances, nothing illegal or anything but I did not care for the sideeffects but I am not as strong as I should probably be for my size
I try to stay away from substances, just because it's hard to say what all of the side effects are. I have had, up until recently, a high protein diet. I recently switched over to MetRx Daily supplement and have added 10 lbs to my benchpress in about 2 days.
sweet, though I wonder how much of that is mental, its takes vitamins about 4-6 weeks before they really start effecting the body, though the high protien diet will help build and repair muscle faster. Hmm I wonder how many people understand how building muscle works on the cellular level.
Oh yeah, it's absolutely mental, but now that I'm on the supplements I know that my muscles are recovering faster so I have less fear about damaging myself. Once you know that you can push yourself harder than you really start to put together a hard routine.
