Re: Modern Body Building and Academic Art Poses

I have a background in Fine Art and am just getting to strength training. However I always found it a little shocking to see the exaggerated physiques and ungraceful poses of modern body building compared to the practitioners of physical culture of the late 19th and early 20th century. The goal of ...

Re: Training Logs for 2020

The United Kingdom government has just announced that all gyms in the United Kingdom are to close after closing time tonight
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-51981653

Re: corona virus closes gyms

Although the gym I am a member of is not closing, they have put up a notice asking people who are feeling ill not to use the gym and warning that if there is a case in Ceredigion, the gym will close and be deep cleaned. As I have said earlier, I am already self isolating and don't have the biggest p...

Re: Training Logs for 2020

@Harry: I would not recommend resistance bands as a primary method of exercise. As an extra, with other exercises, maybe. And while you consider your house to be "not that big", it is hard to image that it is so small that you wouldn't have room for a pair of five pound dumbbells? You have access t...

Re: Training Logs for 2020

Because of the fact that I am a carer for my ninety year old plus grandparents, this outbreak of Covid-19 means that I have decided to self isolate myself whilst I do NOT have the virus in order to ensure that they do not get the virus. Naturally this means that I will not be able to resume my gym s...

Re: Training Logs for 2020

Harry. cut all carbohydrates out of your diet! You have a body fat problem, not an exercise problem. You can not exercise away a lousy high carb diet. I have had undiagnosed sciatica (as in all the symptoms of it, but without a formal diagnosis) since the start of November which has meant that from...

Re: Training Logs for 2020

I have just come back from my first gym session in at least five months and, under the careful supervision of the gym owner, performed a one rep max of 40kg (88lbs) on the flat bench press and a one rep max of 39kg (86lbs) on bicep cable curls. These are 82% and 87% respectively of my pre injury max...
