Don't underestimate bodyweight exercises. They will probably be much more beneficial than anything you could do with what I assume are relatively light adjustable dumbbells....6km Run. Aiming to do 100KM in total before the end of the month.
I need to figure out a strength workout but only have two adjustable dumb bells. Any ideas?
Interesting you don't have a bench. A top of the line bench would only set you back $200.Nah I usually do 5 minute rounds of skipping, so depending on how I feel I'll do either 6, 9 or 12 rounds and Pushups I just do 10x20.
Started Rippetoe today so:
3x5 Weighted Pushup (I must get a bench, so I can actually bench press)
Just thought I'd give it a quick go, will get into properly after HSC
curious what rack?^Yeah, I'm gonna buy one as soon as HSC is done, as all I have at the moment is an old barbell set and rack and plus I feel weighted push-ups give me a greater range of motion and mobility with my shoulders.
Didn't want to start a new thread, but I'd like to clean bulk after the HSC is done so I need some ideas/advice on how to go about it.
Decline benches don't work (note rippetoe's article on the shorter amount of range and greater chance of dropping it on the throat).Do you mean on a budget? Or in general?
I'd take mine over the above, but it is double the price
Why? if its isolating back and core involvement how can it be as useful as standing?I would argue that seated presses etc are quite valuable, ymmv
The ironmaster is probably the best commercial FID bench out there, which is surprising because it was originally designed to have a lot of knick knacks that can be used with it. However, apart from watching TV (which I do with my $500 avanti, which is a rattly PoS btw) I couldn't justify paying $250 extra for one.It doesn't rattle. As far as sturdiness goes it can handle 1000 pounds so not really an issue at all, this being the main reason I bought it
If I hammer my back the day before shoulders it takes a weak/fatigued back out of focusWhy? if its isolating back and core involvement how can it be as useful as standing?
well okay. Then if you're too wussy for full body maybe you need your reclining chairIf I hammer my back the day before shoulders it takes a weak/fatigued back out of focus
If you want to do secondary press movements (after military press etc)
Basically gives you options, which is always good imo
