I feel your pain xplicitbro but you need to keep the gym and life as two separate entities. The problems of the real world can't follow you into the gym. I used to have the same problem you have and I'd have so many shitty/bad/missed workouts.

I have 2 rules:
1) Turn your phone off 10 mins before you go gym and leave it off
2) Go gym no matter what (hungry..tired..sleepy..sad..mad .. don't matter)

You'll find after you go to the gym you'll be in a better frame of mind, and afterwords most of your problems will seem easy to solve. Also, if you procrastinated going to the gym all day, you're going to procrastinate all the other shit you need to do too. So just go to the gym, get something positive out of waking up that day.

With you 100%. I don't miss a workout unless I am horribly sick, injured, or a major event gets in the way. Even then I will still go early morning if possible.

Your bodys got enough fat for energy if needed. You won't die. The only reason you feel hunger is because you're sitting around, start running/working out and the blood flow goes away from your digestive system and to your respiratory muscles + skeletal muscles, hunger disappears.

If there's nothing physically wrong with you, there is no good reason to miss the gym. I've had some pretty upsetting moments in my short life and the only thing that never fails to make me happy is the gym.

theres only one thing you can think about at the bottom of a deep heavy squat. and thats getting back up. you dont think about life problems when you lift heavy.

The only time I ever make progress at the gym is when I watch my diet through a microscope. I log everything I eat, and break it down. You need to be extremely consistent, have a goal and keep to it. The progress comes quickly if you have structure. For the most part, I don't do this and don't get anywhere. But when I do, it sure pays off.

Probably going to have to squat barefoot today since the shoes I walk through the snow to the gym are not the type of shoes I would want to be squatting in.

Except for the last rep when I'm trying to push through failure. If I struggle on a rep and want to push for one more I pause at the top for a second and think of something that really, really pisses me off. I often come down slow and let it build up in my mind and by the time I get to the bottom and explode for the last push I'm thinking FUCKIN' BIIIIIIIIIIIITCH or similar

Fukkk been looking forward to lifting all day, and all of a sudden my infected tooth is kicking in and I've got 8/10 pain. I know you don't lift with teeth, but the pain is giving me headaches and even jaw pain! Fml

I had a dream last night I was training at the T-Nation gym in Denver, with Rowdy Ronda

So training has invaded my dreams now

Unfortunately after tomorrow I will be taking several days off. I will be in china for new years, then when I come back the gym will be closed for 2 days (the only 2 days a year it closes)

I know there's 517 pages on this, but does anyone have a good link to a routine that will

1) first help me gain back and add size
2) increase strength
3) sculpt and form a better upper body (also legs as they're "chicken leg" like)

I know all three are the whole idea behind lifting but without trying to come across as too idiotic those are my goals.

I DON'T have any interest in getting monstrous or lifting heavy weight, but want to increase size/strength and tone a good physique.

I’m 6’1” and 188lbs right now and “soft”, would like to drop the belly and get a decent bf% and be around 195-200 lbs.

Been reading every ones comments about Assault and that looks like a good option for me as after work I’m normally dead and way too tired to get to the gym but I need something that will get me some energy to hit the gym. Anything else that I should be looking into?

Thanks

if you want to go from soft to hard you need to lift heavy

5x5 stronglifts isn't bad for starters

1) Buy Starting Strength by Rippetoe. E-book is $10

2) Use his routine, or "5x5 Stronglifts"

3) When you can do the following, then you can focus on 'bulk' if that's your end goal:

-Squat 1.5x your bodyweight
-Deadlift 1.5 your bodyweight
-Overhead press 105 lbs
- 30 push ups, 20 dips, 10 chinups at bodyweight

4) Eat at lest 200g of protein a day. Don't worry about the rest too much, it will take care of itself if you are getting your 200g from FOOD.

By the time you reach these goals, you will have a significantly improved physique. I am not even there yet (5 pounds to go on deadlift) and I have seen quite a nice improvement in the last 3 months (most of which came in the last 1 month when I switched routines)

I do all sets with overhand, except when I am trying a record, in that case I use mixed grip. If that's what you're asking?

i was just wondering how muscle tears happen since i hear constant stories of people tearing their biceps when doing a hook grip deadlift

i think i'm going to stop doing hook grip and do overhand more often, going down is better than risking an injury especially since now i'm lifting the heaviest that i've ever lifted

plus my grip needs more work

Yeah I was thinking that too. My next bb.com order came with some lifting straps, so I am thinking I am going to use those instead of mixing my grip. Again, only for the heaviest sets.

I was amazed at how much grip strength affects deadlifts. If your mind thinks you won't be able to hold the weight, it just won't move off the ground.
