  1. Just picked this up based on y'alls recommendations. It better not suck.
  2. I prefer Frank's Redhot. I put that shit on everything.
  3. Calves are one of those things that seem to be more genetic than anything. Cutting body fat will help a little bit, but you've either got big ones or little ones.
  4. You're on the wrong side of Vine St to claim Cincinnati [emoji2]Cincy born and raised here, but transplanted to Florence, KY now.
  5. 12-23 oz alternating hammer grip curls. Or deadlifts.
  6. You can most definitely add in other work. And for warmup simplicity, you can check out warmupreps.com for the quick and lazy way. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  7. If you've never used a barbell before, do the program as written. The super light starting weights are designed to get you learning proper form before things get heavy and you hurt yourself. Don't worry. Those light weights will start feeling plenty heavy soon enough. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  8. Sounds very similar to what I went through. I have very high arches in my feet, and dealt with a lot of pain in my hips. Got a pair of custom fit orthotics and no more pain. If you're having problems with your ankles rolling, you might want to get checked out by a podiatrist. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  9. Same thing happens in my house. But that decision should be left up to the parents, not the government. I don't like the idea of the same people who said eggs are bad and Zohydro is good dictating what my kids can and cannot eat. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  10. What's the name of that book? I've been running/jogging for 6 months and lifting for one (SL). Since I started lifting, I've been hurt twice while running with a muscle strain in my left thigh and a right shin splint. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  11. Welcome to the Nasty Nati Lonely! I don't know much about the gym scene here, but I know of some good places to unwind and have a little fun. Plus, my little brother is a UC econ grad and a band geek. Shoot me a PM and maybe we can have a little get together. Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
  12. Howdy all. I stumbled across this site while rehabbing from a recent bicep injury at work. I've always considered myself relatively strong. I have a very physically demanding job (I'm a telecom lineman), and never had any trouble until the injury. I was just amazed at how little weight I could move. So I decided to take a good hard look at my life and the choices that have led me here. January 1st I cold turkeyed a 15 year dip habit. Hardest thing I have ever done in my life. I started training for my first 5k the next day, and started the Beginner Bodyweight program a few days later. The results have been phenomenal! More energy, no more stomach cramps, and I can actually pull my fat butt up! Now to clean up my diet and really start pushes some plates soon... Sent from my SPH-L720 using Tapatalk
