if it's anything like the upper back/shoulder blade/rotator cuff pain I experience after having the bar on my shoulders after squatting, I find that doing pull ups or hanging from the pull up bars help alleviate the pain. Keeping in mind, I've had the pain for years (before squatting) and even went to physio for it, but nothing else has helped.

Oh, I have always been doing my DL's with mixed grip...by the last set my grip is completely finished.

Maybe I'll try pyramid-ing down next time or definitely get a hold of chalk.

Thanks for all the replies, guys

I wouldn't say don't use mixed grip at all. I usually go as heavy as I can grip double overhand and switched to mixed grip when I can't hold on anymore. After deadlifts I'll lower the weight and do some more isometric holds with double overhand to train grip. I don't want my deadlifts suffering because of my grip

people at my school's fitness centre think protein shakes are cheating
i mean, it's just a meal replacement to help you get that extra protein ...
one of my friends was like, "oh i don't need to use protein"
they think it's some kind of magical elixir that gets you jack3d overnight

first time poster in this section - excuse the noobness.

So I have not worked out for the past 5-6 years atleast. Looking to start now!

Dropped by the local fitnessworld and the first months fee is $260 and $40 per month after that.

For $260 I get:
3 personal training sessions at 130
Initiation fee at 50
first month membership at 40
card fee at 15
rest is tax.

Is $260 worth it? It seems hella expensive BUT I like the personal trainer part as I would not know wtf to do to achieve my goals. But the $260 is making me have second thoughts...

feedback appreciated!

Usually personal training runs $60-$80 around here for a session. So it seems OK, but not great, but Im just comparing what we have around here on the island... I think the initiation fee is BS though… as far as im concerned, you want my business you should be giving me something...

Am I able to negotiate with these types of places?

Id try to get them to wave the initiation fee…I honestly dont even see whyd they have it. Takes about 3 minutes of preparation to enroll a new member. If the floor person doesnt have the authority, ask for a manager. Ive never dealt with a corporate gym, but Id give it a shot.

You can always negotiate at fitness world.

But i think the personal training thing is a decent deal, since you dont know what to do.

So if you sign up for any gym, there's an initiation fee now?
I'd suggest a rec centre,no init.fee and card fee as far as I know. and if you're willing, do a loot of reseaarch, maybe look up beginners programs like starting strength, and save yourself the PT fee. The rest of info get off RS :P

Also, can't we get a temporary pass to buy thing from costco?

do yo have any friends that workout or anything, personal trainers are not my kinda thing, if you do go with them and get them to show you what to do and it will motivate you to go with your buddies and have a workout partner for the start

In my opinion, personal training is well worth it when you first start training, it's an immense help to have someone there to correct your form. I wouldn't use the sessions for the first few weeks though, wait till your muscles are loose and used to being worked again, then have someone step in to evaluate your routine and form.

Not really. Most of them run. I dont think any of them lift. I'm somewhat motivated to go but it's always nice to have though. Anyone in surrey want to be my workout partner ?

I was going to use them first week and then every 4 weeks after. I only have 3 sessions in the "package". What would I do for the first week. I wont know how many reps or what machine to use. I'm ASNOOBASITGETS

That would work…just make sure when you go for your first session, you inform them of your goals, and that you wont be needing them for a month so they set you up with a program you can do on your own for a month.

fitness world offers you like 2 free personal training sessions when you begin

but the trainers there are shit, and i doubt how good trainers are at other gyms

I had to fucking correct a guy's form cause the dumb bitch trainer was going to make him break his back, and some of those trainers put noobs on intensity super sets.. go figure

i'd recommend just spend 1 hour a day or so or just a few mins in your spare time to look up videos of people lifting and doing correct form if you're going for squats, deadlifts, bench, etc and find a program

5x5 isn't bad for starters

I agree with Alpha on trainers, I would only pay to meet with someone who has a degree in kinesiology. It's really hit and miss otherwise.
