thanks
pushups/situps (and all their variations) pullups (if you have access to that), bed/chair dips, wall assisted handstand pushups, and possibly some yoga poses? like headstand. just play around with rep ranges and sets until you find what works for you! and of course, try to eat more even if its hard! if you really can't then maybe try some foods that are more dense in calories?

have fun on the trip btw!!

There are so many body variations for working out! Hell just the push up alone can get you pretty far. Triangle push up, wide set, military, decline etc all hit different body parts. Chair dips are also quite good. Water jugs can be used for good localized exercises as well. "Buff dudes" YouTube channel showed a great DIY forearm builder using a milk jug

Edit: doesn't the 'insanity' workout program use mostly body exercises? Maybe download it and throw it on an iPad or wtv to watch while you're gone

Went after my PR today on bench. PR is 315 x 3, but re-injured my shoulder last month in a overzealous workout. Have only gotten back to heavy this week.


I didn't warm up enough, did one set of 225 x 5 for warmup and jumped to 315. Didn't want to be gassed for my 315 attempt, but ended up being too cold. Next time I guess.

PS - Didn't even notice the extra person in the frame. Second workout video, still noob...

The more I look into crossfit, the more I like it lol.
Like I don't like it enough to join a crossfit gym, but I would definitely implement some of their workouts into my own. In my opinion, the only real problem with crossfit is that there are a lot of idiots who do the lifts with extremely bad form and end up getting really injured

Pretty beast! Just one suggestion. Try arching harder and driving ur feet into the ground. It'll help u get tighter cause u look a bit unstable.

Ps. Lose the noob gloves and the towel on the bench!

I love my gloves, and you've seen how nasty our benches are

At lower weight I think I am able to maintain my arch and drive my feet in. @275+ though I find I focus more on keeping as much pressure off my shoulder as possible. More squeezing my shoulder blades vs focusing on the rest of the form. But I understand, I'll see more gains if I can do both :-\

I'll be coming down soon for a workout.

And I specifically recall you saying "Damn these benches are pretty nasty" and promptly throwing a towel down

Just started getting back into the gym last week and oh god have I lost everything I worked toward last year... Having lost about 15lbs in the last 9 months killed me, combined with only working out maybe 10 times since last August..

Been on PHAT for a couple months now, deciding to change things up. Anyone else just stick with the program and change exercises or went to something else? Gains have been slowly decreasing probably cause I'm getting used to the program.

For those of you who have gained a significant amount of weight [whether it be fat or muscle], has anyone started snoring or been snoring a lot louder?
