I made a previous thread regarding my training split being that im trying to make the transition to powerlifting. Im gonna stick to my split right now with main focus on big bench squat DL and overhead presses and also throw in another 4 weeks of sheiko37. Being that im still trying to gain size and weight how much cardio should i be doing. The most i do right now is 10 mins of abs 4 days a week is this not good? Let me know what you're doing im just trying to gauge where i should be at and how necessary it is for powerlifting. Thanks guys
the only cardio im doing is 10 minutes of abs after lifting. my gym has everything, kind of afraid of burning weight but im starting to think i have to be doing it
Doing abs is really not considered cardio. I recommend you do 2-3 sessions of cardio or conditioning a week. Also check into GPP.
Bench: 45 lbs Bench: 235 lbs
Squat: 95 lbs Squat: 285 lbs
Deadlift: 100 lbs Deadlift: 330 lbs
i guess the verdict is to do cardio! haha thanks guys started tonight didnt suck too bad, had a good night on the bench so i was in a good mood other than the fact that the owner of the gym posted signs banning the use of chalk which was basically directed at me and my buddy cuz were 2 of the 4 ppl in there that use it.
No replacement for chalk, but your best alternative.
My monkey arms will not stop me from benching 500#!
ive heard about that have you or anyone you know used it, cuz ive been using chalk for about a year now i cant pull without it
Yeah what vin said, I was thinking to myself, how is 10 minutes of abs considered cardio.
The chalk thing is a bummer. One of the things that pushed me over the edge to finish my home gym. Although I kept using chalk in the rec center even after they posted the sign, I knew the day would come they would harass me more about it. Try to conceal it somehow when you put it on your hands and do it lightly? Or do the people watch more closely than just using cameras?
my gym is small its an old warehouse no cameras and we literally get any excess chalk off the floor and clean up i think this older guy fucked it up for us but its funny you brought up your home made rack me and my buddy were looking into something similair. How much for you to make one for us
No problem just thought id throw it out there ill probably split one with my buddy
