Hazard

In which I train like "The Rock", but eat like I'm afraid of food

Recommended Posts

Can't you just fix this power cord? Or get a friend to fix it for you it you aren't tech savvy? 

 

If you want, I can guide you on fixing it, just PM me a photo of broken part.

The break is flush against the connector.  I can strip the cord, but I can't strip the connector to access the copper wiring on the connector-side of the break.

I appreciate the offer of help.  Thank you.  But we already ordered a replacement for it.   Messing with the broken one at this point would just be for fun.

Hazard,

 

Not that you need another piece of kit, but have you ever tried a wind bike (since you just ordered a new elliptical)? It's my only cardio piece and man can it full body kick your ass.

You have a whole gym at your place right? What all is in it again?

 

Main stuff off the top of my head:

  • power cage with cable attachment and various cable handles.
  • a very abused bench
  • a couple of weight trees, with 505 lbs of plates
  • barbell and EZ bar
  • dumbbell rack with dumbbells from 5 lbs - 55 lbs
  • set of 4 CoC grippers (Sport - No. 1)
  • doorframe pullup bar
  • folding handicap walker (a.k.a. my Dip bars)
  • cheap belt and chain for doing weighted dips/chinups/pullups/etc.
  • my sadly not-working-anymore treadmill :( (I miss using you Treadmill. <3)
  • a bargain model magnetic-resistance exercise bike
  • (coming soon) an elliptical

 

 

What I still want :D:

No, I don't think I've ever used a wind bike.  But I'm glad to hear you're doing cardio and found a type that you like. :encouragement:.

Awesome logging, interesting to follow

 

Curious, how come your protein intake is at ca. 250g every day rather than ca. 190 which is your weight in pounds? To minimize muscle loss on a strong cut?

 

I suspect my next challenge will invovle more actively cutting so I'm interested

The high protein is inspired by Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson’s typical diet, which involves eating way higher protein than your bodyweight.  

 

There may be multiple benefits to eating higher protein like this.   One is satiety.  Protein helps stave off hunger better than both carbohydrates or fat.  I’ve also noticed that my recovery from workouts has been faster since increasing my protein to high amounts.

 

And as you suggest, minimizing muscle loss is a likely effect too, as long as a person is also training regularly during their cut.

Quest Progress update

 

I'd hoped to be through with this cut now.  But the weight is being stubborn.  It's okay though.  My belly is shrinking nicely.  I just miss eating more. :miserable:.  :beaten:.   Today is day 8 for this 8-day training rotation. A recovery day. Since the cut continues, I'll probably recharge my dwindling willpower with a refeed meal sometime today, then back to work hitting it hard.

I see, nice! What is your source that he trains and eats like that? An interview from him? The man is a beast i want to learn his method^^

 

Also do you think he's natural nowadays? I highly doubt it but I WANT him to be. More inspiring if he is

Be pretty insane if he was natty at his age with his schedule.

It'd also be pretty irresponsible to be natty, since it increases his chance of injury and he is the starring role in films that hundreds of people's livelihoods depend on.

Just read through this challenge and you're doing 90+ minutes of cardio every day?! Man you're a beast! I'm doing my cardio 3x a week for 30-40mins at a time and that's a challenge. What you're doing is superhuman :D

 And a great inspiration, I want to be where you're at in the future :encouragement:

He says he is.

 

I have no experience with PEDs beyond caffeine.  I can't give an informed opinion.
