For the guys dead-lifting and squatting 500+ lbs, do you guys use a belt? If so, where did you get yours and was it reasonably priced?

I've been looking at lever belts from Inzer ($90, 13mm) and Toro ($70, 10mm) and was wondering if any of you guys have any input into this matter.

For you guys who take creatine, during your deloading phase, do you still take pre-workout shakes that contain creatine in it? EG: NO-Xplode.

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Long Story short, I have half a right bicep and no Brachialus in my right arm....I'm having trouble getting an even build for my arms since that's like half of my upper arm that's missing.

So... Anyone have suggestions for a Shoulder/Pec workout that focuses on strength?
I'm doing Benches, free weight Bench, Incline Military press, Deadlifts, and squats.
I haven't seen much improvement after the first 3 months of working out again.. I can do more weights, but my right arm just drops the weight unexpectedly sometimes. I can't do rows at all, which sucks.

Suggestions?

Also: Been running for the past year. An hour 3 days a week. Crunches with weights, incline situps, Full body workout every other day I'm not running.
I've cut down ALOT on my carb intake to the point where I only eat Meat, Veggies, and Fruits. I stopped drinking Coke, but I'll have the beer every once in a while. My gut is not going away.

I'm stuck at 166. I'm 5'7. I look.. bulky.

More Cardio?
Go on stronglifts.com and do the 5x5 program. Skip the cardio. You should be progressing your loads which it doesn't sound like you are. Every other day for a full body workout (assuming you do squats every workout) sounds like a bit much - 4x a week of heavy squats is... insane.

Cycle carbs. More protein, more fat.

Had a ridiculous pig out session (it was planned) where I ate 7k calories of crap. Went to the gym and KILLED it.

New PRs set
Deadlifts = 355 lbs.
Squat = 260 lbs. 240 was something I'd been struggling with all week, but it felt freaking light. Tried for 3 plates.. but alas, no love. Should be there by November if everything goes to plan.

About to head out to the gym now. Going to attempt front squats again - they always feel so awkward to me so it will be difficult.

Day 3 in a hotel room for work. On the plus side it has a decent gym for a hotel. Did bit of a random workout today consisting of the leg press, leg curls, pull ups (Finally feeling my lats work ) and shoulder press. Back home tomorrow!

I've also been eating a bit more and I tipped the scale at 189lb this morning. Up from 183 about 3 weeks ago. Unfortunately i'm loosing definition.

Finally figured out how to do front squats. I was having trouble at first, but I grabbed my phone and looked at some videos on Youtube. I could have asked a trainer I suppose, but they were all busy teaching people how to do curls and use the smith machine for squats.

I actually prefer front squats to back, and look forward to really increasing the amount of weight I can do.

Heading to Thailand tomorrow. Will have to get 2 workouts in this week at the hotel. I hope I can get around to it! My diet will be shit, that's for sure. I'll be in the land of dudes who are 130 lbs at most

this may seem awkward but im certain it has happened to most of you...
how do you prevent/avoid sweaty ass? it shows on the seats and is quite embarrassing tbh :S
is there special type of undergarment youre suppose to wear or what? cos this happens almost every time i get a good workout in.

yeah skinny front squats are legit, i find it gets the front quad more into inner tight area, i still love back squats tho

People don't care, just make sure to wipe it down real good when you're done.

I'm failing so bad at my diet LOL. I've been saying I'm going to lose weight for months now!

August 30 = 211.6

got as low as 207.6 in the middle.

September 20 = 215.00

I think it was like june when I was 213 and wanting to lose weight.

going to take this seriously now. use fitday.com to monitor calories. Going to try to hit 200.
