Anybody ever tried this one?

ima work that in next shoulder day.

This.

I surfed throughout my life and this will certainly get your shoulders and lower back back into shape. Esp if you have taken significant time off. Heck, swimming is the best all around workout to do period...but not all of us have access to a pool.

I swim a good bit in the summer, but even then I have to be careful swimming as it tends to tweak my shoulders, esp the surgically repaired one. But yes, it is an awesome workout.

Fine then I won't mess with it... :P

You may actually like it. I know people who do enjoy doing it, and swear it gives them better results. In my opinion, you are better off coming up with a different exercise to isolate each muscle group. I think it gets the best results. Whatever works for you is most important though.

Yeah I may give it a go just to see... But you have a valid point.

I do them some. If you go low weight and hold the reps it does good for chest back abs. Don't feel it too much in my shoulders though

Sooo...

Played basketball for the first time since my surgery, which makes it roughly 3 years since I last played, this past Thursday night.

I had forgotten how rough it can get... pretty much just a couple of full-court pick up games for about an hour and a half, but I don't move like that in the gym so Friday morning I felt like I been run over with a truck... sore groin from moving side-to-side, sore shoulder from going up to grab a rebound and hyper-extending it, and I jammed my left big toe on a fast break when I tried to stop... since the toenail is now purple, I'm pretty sure it's gonna come off... ugh, getting old sucks.

On the good side I played pretty well for not having played in so long... and in-shape wise didn't have any trouble getting up and down the court.

Now if we can just get Huddle Jamz III setup... :)

I'm short, uncoordinated, and can't jump. I was never good at basketball.

Anyone have a solid mass-building leg workout?

The girl I'm seeing is waaaaaay more fit than me and it pisses me off. Well, not really but you know what I mean. I need to improve.

idk exactly what you need DM but my issue with legs has always been I just hated doing them. Leg workouts suck... but I finally started last year being serious about my exercise rotation and do legs every 4th day or so and I'm seeing results. I finally have some calves now anyway...

I stick with pretty much the basics... squat, machine press, hack squat, leg curls and extensions and three different calf extensions (standing, seated and the leg press machine on high), and I also always work my tibulus anferior...

anyone here used a lot of different type of preworkout supplements?

i'm thinking of getting MRI's Black Powder, or White Flood or Allmax Muscleprime or NaNo Vapor, but I'm not sure which.

I was on C4 for the past month or so... it's decent. I just got some Jack3d Micro and I'm gonna try it one more time today, but it's not really doing anything for me. Probably going to take it back and exchange it for something else... I've seen that Black Powder and White Flood but have not tried either... I think part of the problem is that I have acclimated to caffeine and it takes a lot more of it now for me to notice...

the white flood is highly recommended as the most bang for your buck at around 40 cents a serving

my buddy told me black powder makes him wanna work out for 4 hours

allmax is pretty highly regarded as a company

but the nano vapor seems to be the most highly recommended on bodybuilding.com forums.

i'm definitely not brushed up on modern science in the bodybuilding community, the last time i was on a regimen the big things were proteins, amino acid and creatine had just hit the market, several years before it was banned in pro sports.

i do know what l-arginine and yohimbe are for though!

edit: i got a free sample of the musclepharm assault, and my buddy gave me a bag of it yesterday, but he said the black powder was way better. the assault worked, but i dunno if it was worth it for the price.
