Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

It's 50. It largely depends on what type of barbell you're using, but in American commercial gyms (LA Fitness, XSport, 24HOUR, Charter, etc,.), barbells typically weigh 42-48 lbs themselves. So, if you're squatting a barbell in La Fitness with 25 lbs on each side, you're squatting 95 lbs.

I had a few month membership for a nearby gym but it's very expensive and I'm wondering if going and doing "around the house" stuff will have the same effect or will I have to find a way to get a renewed membership? By "around the house" stuff I mean- pushups, situps, maybe getting myself a chin-up bar in the doorway when I enter the room, possibly pushups with a bag on my back with books, runs around the area... What I'm asking is will I get the same effect or do I need to go to machinery in gyms?

Thanks in advance.
Calisthenic are wonderful. The tricky part of tailoring your routine will be progressing on a program like that because you don't have access to weights. Here's a routine you could do:

Day 1:
Wide Grip Pull Ups
Push Ups
Handstand Push Ups

Day 2:
Bodyweight Squats
1 Leg Split Squats (put one leg up on couch, chair and squat on the other leg)
Pistol Squats (more advanced movement)

Day 3:
Dips
Close Grip Pull Ups
Abs

Day 4:
Bodyweight Squats
1 Leg Split Squats
Pistol Squats

Are kettle bells and calisthenics better than free weights? No, not in my opinion. But you can accomplish a lot with dedication, a pull up bar, or by heading up to your local park/playground. Couple of references you can check out:

-Barstarz on youtube
-Realomegablaze on youtube (does a bodyweight only routine and looks damn good)
-Convict Conditioning (it's a book)
-Rosstraining.com (wrote an excellent tutorial on exercises you can do around the house with no equipment)

Shit, it's often a debate I have with some colleagues amd I finally want to put ot to rest. A lot of them keeo insisting it's 25lbs (think of it as holding a 25lb dumbell in each hand) but I insist it's 50 cause well, duh, 25+25=50.

Anyway, why I also ask is because when doind the bench press 50lbs is light. I could do like 15-20 reps with it. But when doing barbell curls I can barely do 3 reps. Is that normal? It makes me wonder if my bench press technique is wrong.
First of all,

barbell



dumbbell



Using any barbell the weight is the amount you put at either end + the weight of the bar. So for example if you have an olympic bar, and you put 20 kg on either end and use it to squat then you are squatting the weights at either end (40kg) + the bar (20kg) for a total squat of 60kg.

Now as for bench press vs barbell curl. They use different muscles. Benching works your pecs, ant. deltoid and tricep, barbell curls works your bicep.

I lift 4 days a week. I am more of a runner. I put in over 50 miles a week on 4 days of running.

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

Can anyone explain what happened to me this morning. So I got up during my sleep in the early hours of the morning and I just flexed my bicep (not not because I flex my bicep every monring lol I think I was going to turn or something) and it was solid as fricking rock! Very tight and hard. But the when I woke back up later this morning I was back to normal.

What the heck bodily fucntions or reactions could have possibly caused that?

Re: Workout/Staying in Shape Thread

I'm guessing it's just blood rushing to your muscles like the ump you get.
