What in the fuck is that monstrosity?

How is that even supposed to do anything. Looks like it would be more likely to fuck up your vertebrae.
If you want to do an ab exercise with a barbell on your back, do squat walkouts (place a little more than your max on the bar and just brace for time).

Or even better do farmer carries for full body gains (and pain).

I've got a few buddies at my gym who Oly. They do use powerlifting techniques as accessory work for their main lifts.

They prefer overhead push press as opposed to strict. They probably deadlift around 30-50% of their max and in proportion to how much they can clean.
They focus on ATG fronts squats and high bar back squats.

I've never seen any of them bench.

well i'm not surprise on the bench. most of their upper body comes from front and ohp. and since there's no benching in oly. they don't need that. i should get into olympic lifting.

im kidding. i'd hurt myself somehow.

think i can go to the gym today. dairy finally kicking in and it's no bueno.

I am getting into it myself. a little half hearted but I am honestly thinking about ditching my current style of training in favor of focusing more energy on the Oly Lifts

So I started working out a week-ish ago. I wouldn't say I'm overweight (I'm 5'6" at 150 and carry it well. Probably have around 20ish pounds to lose) thanks to a good/decent metabolism and a not completely terrible diet - but I am horribly out of shape as I've been relatively sedentary for a long long time activity-wise. Been working with a personal trainer each time because I have no clue what the hell I'm doing and I'm one of those people that really works well with good structure and hands on teaching.

But I'm struggling to make it past 45ish mins of working out. I feel like the trainers are putting me through some good high intensity workouts, and I'm not struggling with the workouts themselves per se, but around that 45 min mark I've just begun to feel a bit nauseous to the point I feel like I need to stop. Like my body is saying "You're overexerting yourself stop or you're gonna hurl."

What can I do to kind of curtail that kind of feeling? I feel like it's limiting me from working out as much as I want to/could.

It's not necessarily your body telling you you're overexerting yourself. What could happen is your body may have to produce adrenaline to sustain the intensity your brain wants. Adrenaline can make you feel sick.

Or, apparently, your entire digestive system can shut down during an intense workout. Particularly if you overheat, as your body fights to divert resources to your brain and lungs.

https://runnersconnect.net/nausea-an...after-running/

Try to keep calm during your workout, even during an intense one. Try not to eat or drink anything that might be upsetting to you or your stomach. Drink plenty of water before, during, and after your workout. And you may need to have your trainer lower the intensity of your workout.

(You're already at a healthy weight. You are not on The Biggest Loser. There is no need to push yourself to vomit.)

It may also help just to add an additional, separate cardio routines to your workout schedule.

I have been worried about some pain in my knee and lower back pain, the former seemingly from riding my bike and the latter from ego lifting on deadlifts.

Well after 2 weeks and 6 workouts it seems like the pain is receding! I am surprised, I didn't think more exercise would fix my problem. But I have been focusing on my technique, and have been lifting a little lighter than I would usually do last year.

My conventional deadlift felt like I was using a lot of back, so I've really been focusing on finishing with the butt thrust rather than a back extension. Sumo felt pretty good with an easy 225 5x5.

And damn I was so sore this whole summer, my hamstrings/glutes were tight as fuck for some reason, but now that I've been getting some good stretching in after workouts, that is a lot looser and feeling normal.

Lifting is love, lifting will cure what ails you

Should share this with your trainer, sounds to me like they're pushing you too far, especially this early. You're out of shape and one week in, there's no reason you should be working out to the point of vomiting.

And honestly it could just be that the trainer is garbage. I was at LA Fitness for years and most of the trainers there were terrible. I actually did a session one time with one because they kept bugging me and i too was pushed to the point of feeling sick... And this was AFTER I felt I was in pretty good overall shape, lol. It appeared to me they did this on purpose to make me think "wow, i thought i was in shape but clearly not, i need this trainer!"

Had a biopsy yesterday and have 3 stitches in the crown of my head. I think it might be a good idea to skip the run today. I am nervous about tearing them. Is this something I should be worried about or am I tripping? Should I just switch to the bike or row machine for two weeks? I don't want to skip. The doc thinks it might be discoid lupus flare up (totally did not know I had discoid lupus) and exercise is supposed to do wonders.

Thanks for the response. I just want to straddle that fine line between a light workout and a stitch buster. Definitely no lifting until the stitches are out.

i mean for the socks i had knee high socks they did have grip on the bottom but the floor at the gym sorta messed them up. i think my shoes are starting to lose grip because i would rub it.

i honestly don't need the slipper.not like i pull sumo. conventional is fine anyways. just trying to promote the warez at the gym.

Decided to try and hit some pseudo maxes today. Don't really want to push my body too hard this program, in terms of one rep max.

And baby I still got it!

Squatted 275 for 4
Benched 185 for 4
OHP 115 for 4

Delicious.

i mean ill still wear them for conventional so i can stop wearing socks only.

Take it easy with the protein and it is better to ingest smaller amounts throughout the day than 30+gm in one hit.

Do weighted dips for pecs. You have to hip hinge in the air though to get the angle. Regular dips are still pretty good for pecs though.

Or you can do push ups, which are like the most underappreciated exercise.

Or you can do cable flys.

Flat bench isn't even that great.

Warm up elbow tendons with hammer curls. Wrist curls can also help. high rep, light weight.

I really like doing dumbbell press off the floor. It never feels like my shoulders are in danger, and I can use as much weight as possible to really focus on the contractions. You can do a tricep version too by keeping your elbows locked to your sides at the bottom.

I started my Creatine cycle today. I am loading 20g a day, spaced out 4 times a day at 5g each. I am doing that for a week, and then I will just do a maintenance dose of 5g a day.

I understand how Creatine works and what it does. My question though is when I stop taking it, am I just going to become slightly weaker or am I physically going to shrink down a tiny bit?

You don't need to load, and you don't need to cycle.

But if you do, you should just become a bit smaller, unless you're talking about lifts where the extra weight can help with leverage.

I'm gonna try to hit 365 on squats tomorrow. I can hit 315x8 pretty easily now so I think I should be able to do it. But my deadlift is still stuck at 385, that might be because I only ever do them after heavy squats.

My chest is literally the most annoying muscle group in the world. I can hit like 5-6 struggle reps at 205. I just want a big strong chest ugh. But OHP I finally got 135x8. It took 2 years but I finally got it lmao.

I was told that if you don't load then it can take 2 or 3 weeks for your muscles creatine stores to be filled. I'm really only doing the loading because I'm impatient.

Studies show it makes next to no difference. The amounts people generally take normally are up at the limits of what the body can absorb anyway.
