Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Squid said something bout compound exorcisms and I googled it. It's kinda obvious what it means, but I figured I'd find some good ones.

Dumbell squats combined with curls, google says. I like this cuz it sounds really efficient in terms of time and energy.

I'm soon reminded that when I do squats, I wind up straining my knees. Which is weird because I am 42 and normally never have knee problems. I go out of my way to take like 50 flights of stairs a week. I ski. Knees are fine. I squat and my knee hurts.

When I do lunges, I wind up with sore big toes.

Is this just bad form on my part? Trying to copy the guy in the video, but I am kind of a spazz.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Lotsa good info available on the YouTubez for squatting. Mark Bell has an episode with Chris Duffin that is pretty fantastic. Alan Thrall has two phenomenal squat videos, interestingly enough it shows a progression in his technique.

The first video talks about depth by going ass to grass and really utilizing the bounce.

The second video is a year or two later and he shortened his depth by a fair amount to just below parallel, with the intention of using stretch reflex in the hammies instead of bouncing out of the hole.

Beyond that he talks about proper foot width and positioning as it pertains to knee alignment.

Greg nuckles also has an extremely in depth article about the fundamentals of squatting:

Just do a normal barbell squat. Dumbbell squats put a load of pressure on your shoulder, are far more difficult to manoeuvre and will be impossible to take forward and add weight to if you want to get strong.

No idea about your knee issue. If you want to post a video of you squatting I or a few others in here can give you pointers on your form but you should see a Physio if things are hurting

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

I canít do squats either- even body weight ****s with my knee. Lunges are generally fine.

Down to 164. 5 more pounds and Iíll be pretty stoked. Sub 155 is the medium term goal.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Miami - have u had a legit trainer check yer form?

I have had 2 knee surgeries: acl. And meniscus and microperf (tore all the cartlidge off my knee and they had to make small fractures to stimulate new growth)

I may be brosciencing a bit here. But I am convinced that squatting and deadlifting has kept me tough and able to do the fun stuff. I have zero pain squatting...and people that I know that have pain tend to do sht wrong in those complicated compound movements. That or they are just pussies

I havenít had it checked by him. I partially tore my meniscus a few years and hasnít been repaired so I assume it wouldnít matter if my form was good.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Lunges are generally more stressful on knees than back squats albeit IANA exercise physiologist and weíre all different

My update is that Iíve been training hard but boozing consistently over the past two weeks over a weird holiday period here. .

Did a 1k row pr of 3.18 on Sun and am now gonna commit to two weeks of hard dieting and training to maintain and build on the gains I made.

Congrats on the weight loss Miami

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Gonna try something in May just for the lol's / see if I can't fall off the bandwagon / see what results (if any) occur: Gonna cut soft drinks (pop) completely out. Exercise / lifestyle / eating habits (which range from ok to whatever to horrible) will remain exactly the same otherwise.

Starting at 179 lbs.

Started yesterday with my usual Wendy's drive-thru after my poker session, where for the first time ever I ordered a water with my Big Bacon Classic Burger and Fries.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

I started tracking my weight weekly starting Jan 25 of this year. I was 193 at that point. As of April 3 I was still 193.1. Today I weighed in at 185.8. Biggest change I made was completely cutting out a few carb heavy foods: these fig bars they have at work that are over 200 calories for a pack of two, stopped getting cereal which I was eating nightly, and every friday they have bagels at work and I cut that out. Generally I've been eating a bit less at night as well.

The muscle egg recommended by Dr Squid did not work out for me. Like most of these protein shakes, they don't sit well with my stomach.

Another four or so pounds off and I can likely comfortably fit back into my pants that are a 33 inch waist that I bought 1.5 years ago or so.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Separated shoulder injury keeping me from getting in workouts. I start PT next week, but am going to try to get on the trainer this week.

My diet hasn't been terrible, but that great latelt. But not sustainable if I'm not putting in the workouts. So I'm really going to need to figure out this nutrition thing where I'm not gaining weight if I'm only doing stationary bike and walking for a while.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

Thanks for the advice on squats. I've worked on my form and the knee strain is still there because I am old and it takes a paper cut 18 months to heal now. However, my squats no longer seem to strain the knee.

What do you guys think about recovery time? Time/energy wise, I like doing a small workout most days. But is it dramatically better to just do a relatively hard workout 1 day and then wait several days?

I'm not trying to be the Ultimate Warrior. Just in decent shape. Non-flabby. Able to move something heavy or change a tire without collapsing after the exertion. I just do 4-5 dumbell things and pushups.

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

ES2 - I like being efficient. I work out so I can do all the fun stuff. My work outs are always under 1 hour. And I seldom train more than 4 days per week. If the weather is shtty I might get motivated and go 5 days. But on average it is between 3 and 4.

That being said when I go in there I go in HARD. Most will not do my workouts - cuz they are not fun...but they get the job done. I do not do any fluff. I literally have not done a bicep curl in 20+ years. But cuz of lifting the heavy ass weights I got a nice set o guns.

My point is - I think to look like you work out u got to go outside of yer comfort zone and move some reasonable weight. In doing that you will need some rest

Re: *OFFICIAL* LLSNL Weight Loss Thread

I have been doing my absolute best to lean out. I was spoda do deadlifts today. And I am just fried. Being at a slight caloric deficit and doing big lifts is just too much for me at this point so I am rotating out deadlifts for a month or so. Got 4x5 @ 410 last week (no belt but used wrist straps). Rotating out DL and back suddenly is an "ez" day which is a nice reset. Still trying to shed a final few lbs

Borat slingshot is gunna fit!!

I had forgotten fig bars and cal counting. Probably the most cal dense food on earth short of drinking olive oil shots. OTOH no one gained sig cals from normal cereal + skim milk.

Doc seemed unconcerned with the marble sized lump sticking out of my wrist and said a few more weeks with the brace and then 'slowly' work my way back into the gym.

In the mean time I went back to the running trail in surprisingly good weather for this time of year. Having the olds is not fun. Back when chat thread started, running meant a shower and an hour rest before resuming business as usual. In 2019 I'm still feeling Thursday's run on Sunday.
