1 hour of high intensity lifting (less than 30 sec down time) and then 10-20 minutes in the sauna. Saunas are amazing for making you less sore the next day.
So is stretching, that's something that cannot be stresed enough. I've seen quite a few people not bother stretching before and AFTER and complain about being sore. Stretching is a big part of my warm up and cool down.
My last full year of competitive hockey, I was pulling out full splits. After hockey I got lazy and stopped doing much for about 8 months. Currently I can go down to about 3 inches above the ground.
I just got back from the gym about a half hour ago. While at the Gym I was doing squats with the big bar thing (sorry, I dont know the names of everything yet) and I had 90 pounds on each side with the bar, it was probably about 200 pounds. So I take it off the rest, I go down for the squat and try to push up and I just keep going down lol. I'm like O SHIT, lucky for me there was a bar that comes out so I just went down low enough so it was resting on that and I crawled out from under it lol.
Have you guys ever had a experiance where you couldnt do the weight and it almost/did come down on you?
My junior year of college we were doing squat maximum tests, and I tried to put up 500 lbs. I got about halfway up and then had to drop the bar. I later did 400, which was still pretty awesome.
Ordered my stuff today off bodybuilding.com. Got Optimum 100% Whey Protein in the delicious strawberry flavor and Cell-Tech Hardcore Creatine Monohydrate in the blue raspberry flavor. Hopefully these will help with my bulking
I don't drink basic protein shakes, mine generally consist of a normal serving of cytogainer plus 3 or 4 raw eggs and sometimes uncooked oats for quality carbs. No hershey's chocolate syrup on mine, unfortunately.
