I’ve recently decided to drop weightlifting and do calisthenics as a form of training. I’ve always wanted to but hesitated. I find it more fun and challenging than weights.
I have an old cals program that i’m going to use, because of lack of equipment I have a few questions, for pull ups I can probably get one of those doorway bars, but what can I use for dips / Australian pull ups, what have you guys found that works well. Any other advice would be appreciated!
I’m kinda new(ish) to the World of k dramas but I need suggestions. I love weightlifting fairy Kim bok joo and I can’t seem to stop watching cause I’m so obsessed so someone give me more suggestions to get over this wfkbj hang over. I have also watched love alarm and I enjoy that if that helps! I prefer the whole high school romance or just school teen romances so please give me new suggestions!!
Ps I live in England and use Netflix and Amazon prime if this also helps!!
Is it possible to get big and put on muscle just from calisthenics? Can someone explain the differences, advantages, and disadvantages to both calisthenics and Weightlifting?
Just wondering what some of you prefer and your reasoning behind it.
I've heard both have their positives and negatives, but wanted to hear your thoughts.
Thanks in advance. Keep on keeping on guys and gals. You're an inspiration!
What I loved about it was a kiss here and there wasn’t a big deal, didn’t require slow-mo or repeat of different angles. It was just a kiss! This drama also made me crush on Nam Joo Hyuk for the first time.
The ML was so affectionate, back hugs, lying on the floor wrapped around each other, and it was SO cute and felt natural. I don’t want ‘I like you’ to be such a dramatic hoo-hah where the FL is all doe-eyed and speechless, just want to watch a good old supportive and sweet relationship. It doesn’t necessarily need be a ‘mature’ couple either.
(A side point is I also don’t mind C- or T- dramas if you happen to think of them but I’m aware this is a kdrama sub!)
Btw, I’ve already seen:
What’s wrong with Secretary Kim?
I am not a robot
I have access to some weights at home and want to add Ohp, Squats and deadlifts and keep the Rrs Pull Up Dip and Row progression. I'm don't have alot of knowledge about programming, would this be ok?
So there's this cute girl in my weight lifting class and she seems really nice. I don't know her that well but I'd like to get to know her and maybe even date her, I was thinking of asking her to hangout or to do something tomorrow when I realized that I don't know what to do. Where I live going outside would be really cold rn and not ideal. I don't feel comfortable enough to invite her to my house because we dont really know each other. I need some ideas that are covid friendly because my governor is pretty strict and a lot of things that would be a casual date/hangout are closed. If you have any ideas please let me know (also I would like it to stay fairly casual so they dont feel pressured or awkward) edit: I'm only 16 and I don't have my license yet
For an Olympic weightlifter who trains 4-5 times a week how can I mix it with wrestling without effecting my ability to recover
Im sorry if this question has been asked before but I am looking for my first pair of weightlifting shoes. I’ve been wanting a pair for a while but I don’t even know where to begin (brand, specs, etc). I have just been using my trainers to lift in and they’re fine but I want to start taking my WL more seriously.
As a casual fan, Rio Weightlifting Men 77kg's final few minutes were so epic https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ikGP9lNgVpY. It was one of my favorite Olympic moments. The guy who won the gold, Nijat Rahimov , looked dead in the water with no chance at wining it all before his final two attempts. Commentators were already crowning the guy (Lü Xiaojun) who ended up getting the silver. Rahimov would have had to do smth completely insane to win the gold. Mohamed Mahmoud ,the bronze medalist, attempted 203 kgs with his last attempt and he could barely move it off the ground. And then here comes Rahimov attempting 214 kgs!!!!!. That is 4 kgs above the world record set 15 years ago and 13 kgs above what the silver medalist lifted. When world records are broken they are usually only 1kg above the previous one. Rahimov said fuck it, YOLO! and ordered 214 kgs.
Nijat Rahimov comes in, shushes the crowd, takes offly long adjusting his hands on the bar and then lifts and holds 214 kgs above his head for 3 seconds. The crowd erupts, Rahmiov starts jumping and dancing like crazy. He just set a new insane world record. It really seemed like I witnessed smth unbelievable. It felt like a truly magical Olympic moment we all watch these games for.
Now all of this is meaningless because Rahimov has been charged (this is isn't definitive) with swapping his urine samples during Rio Olympics. I feel dead inside. Why would I watch the Olympics ever again?
I am a college freshman cross country and track runner at my local university. We are entering the track season so we're dropping a bit in mileage now. (70 mpw --> 50-55). l started getting more serious about trying to gain muscle maybe 2.5 months ago. I am 5' 11", 141, and already very lean/defined but I want to add at least 10 pounds of muscle in the near future. I would greatly appreciate any tips or even basic training regiments for my goal. I am putting down at least 3,500 calories a day for reference right now and slowly gaining. I understand it will be more difficult while running, but I am more than willing to put in the work.
Thank you for the help.
I’m looking to get back into lifting. Does anyone know of any campus women’s weightlifting groups? I’m guessing it would probably be virtual because of COVID, but even groups that are active over a groupchat or something would still be interesting to me, I just want to learn from more experienced ppl. The “women’s” part of this is important however because I hate men.
