    helps you to lift heavier/grip better and saves your wrists if you have previous injuries. But to each their own.

    You see this alot on a certain bodybuilding site. It's one great big man fest over there, though the chicks do have some pretty big palle too.

    Dude! That's such a nasty misconception.

    With proper form they are a fantastic and safe exercise.

    I don't know anyone who has ever had a problem with their back from deadlifting (although I will admit that great care should be taken when new to the exercise, or if you have an existing back or hip issue).
    I know two people who have torn their pecs benching, a handful of people with rotator cuff issues from benching, and even torn biceps from bad curling form haha.

    I think the deadlift gets a bad, undeserved rap.

    I bought a weight belt today, I could just feel my back getting tight by the end of my shoulder, back Nd leg workouts. I'll see how it goes I suppose.

    Love my weight belt! Keeps everything in the lower back department straight and firm when doing squats and deadlifts. Just make sure it's supertight bud.

    For everyone afraid of deadlifting.... how to do a deadlift 101.



    This is at a low weight (110kg) so no belt was used. Heavier weights I would recommend a belt. Also the technique used here is for high rep deadlifts, they are great for a cardio replacement and all over body toning. When doing heavier deadlifts you should come to a complete stop at the end of each rep (hence the term 'dead' lift), reset and lift again (may post this later on if I film tonight). For people beginning deadlifts you should probably stick to high rep until you get the hang of having that straight lower back and using your hammies.


    INB4 - broken back, you're doing it wrong, subsequent shitstorm...

    Yeah not an exercise I'll be doing either as my back and knees wouldn't cope. Today was 2k on the pushbike, 3k on the treadmill in 20 minutes then dumbell military presses on a 45 degree bench at 22kgx8x3 then 24kgx8x1, standing dumbell curls 16kg 8x4, 80 situps, 40 pullups and 40 dips..in 1hr for the whole lot. Will be sore tomorrow :) I've really got know idea about what is a good workout routine and what isn't just don't like doing an exercise then waiting for 5 minutes before doing another...needs to be constant turnover to keep heart rate up and make it short and sweet.

    i havent been on here for a while due to being away but i LOVE this thread! its always nice to talk about something other than cars :)

    sorry for jumping on the wagon a bit late but here goes


    REASON FOR TRAINING: Was always the skinny kid amongst my mates at school and used to get ripped on as you do these days.. one day i saw on tv that Planet Fitness which is my local gym had free sign up and $5 a week membership so i jumped on it.

    STARTING WEIGHT: I started around the 60kg mark and about 5'9 im guessing. I have a VERY fast metabolism and could eat maccas and kfc every day and not gain a pound. In my first few weeks of training i started to get to know what machines did what and got a bit of advice from people at my local ASN store as to what routines to go about etc. Ive since had a strict routine/meal plans/proteins etc which i will put down after but at the moment i stand on the scales at 74kg.

    TRAINING ROUTINE: I train 5 days a week: mon,tues,rest wednesday,thurs,fri,rest saturday,sun.

    mon: chest & triceps
    tues:legs
    wed: rest
    thurs: back & biceps
    fri: core and cardio
    sat: rest
    sun: shoulders

    DIET:

    brekky: oats or eggs. sometimes both :p
    morning tea: nuts,sandwhich,rice etc etc
    lunch: chicken with salad or veggies, tuna on bread or tuna &rice usually
    arvo: something similar to what i have for morning tea
    dinner: red meat or chicken with veggies.
    before bed: a light meal with lots of protein such as an omlette or a couple of boiled eggs. and a before bed shake.

    i do take a high carb protein shake after my workouts due to my metabolism also.


    really excited to share stories/gains/exercises with you all!!

    They are 10 x 4....usually do the situps between weights..ie yesterday was in a sort of superset that included the curls and presses. The dips and chins were done next and at the same time just alternating between the two. Bike and run done as warmup at start.

    SlutVS: That sounds like a really healthy diet. You must be pleased with the results as it sounds like you've bulked up heaps. Well done.

    sounds like incline bench press dude. Military press is on a 90 degree bench (or standing). Although generally you set the Incline bench at 30 degrees.
