    What is more impressive? 225 bench x 8 or 315 squat x 8?

    @franklampard14 I’d argue that’s why the squat is more “impressive.” You see plenty of people hit decent benches at commercial gyms. You see fewer good squatters.

    F/38/5'6/120lbs - Total beginner looking for insight / perspective from more seasoned fitness nerds

    @radekm I feel that. I’m turning 37 at the end of the year and it’s at that point where I need to focus on my health for longevity. I would drink in excess and it hit a point where I was like why. Fitness really helps fill the void. I saw you mentioned a rotar cuff issue.. if that’s the case...

    How do you incorporate pull up works into your routine?

    @twinmama I am nowhere near a pull-up, but my best friend was in the Marines when they began requiring them for women and always got a perfect score on her fitness tests. She's also worked as a trainer and was pretty emphatic that if you want to do a pull-up, train pull-ups not chin-ups --...

    Gym guy (60s) yells at me (27 F) in gym

    @nickblack Don’t worry some people are losers. He probably mad cause you’re out of his league. I can’t believe a grown “man” would be like this with a woman. He’s just a loser don’t worry about it don’t let that discourage you or make you feel bad or uncomfortable. He’s the one who has a problem

    Nike Romaleos 2 v Adidas Adipower Weightlifting

    @masterp48hd I have both. My short review is: Adipowers are lighter and you feel the floor a little more on lifts. Romaleo's are heavier and you feel like you're landing on a more solid "platform" as the sole is very hard. If you try to do metcons in oly's b/c of a mobility limitation, the...

    Internalized misogyny and sports?

    @lorial I don’t relate to this in the gym because 1/ I don’t pay attention to what men are doing really anywhere unless they’re in my personal space or related to me and 2/ when I do and I’m at the gym, it’s usually because I’ve noticed how many of them are doing vanity lifts without the full...

    Thoughts on short 20-30 minute workouts 6 days a week?

    @3eyeswideopen I’ve found that 20-35min 6 days a week has yielded greater results than 90 min 4 times a week. Tips for time management; Antagonistic supersets (ie bench-pull-up) Bulk of your work should be heavy compounds. Maybe one triple-dropset of Bi’s or tri’s at the end… they’re not...

    The Elusive Pull-Up

    @twinmama This is awesome and extremely helpful, thank you! It feels ridiculous at this point but every single day for the last few years I walk up to our pull-up bar and tell myself today is the day I'm finally going to do this. I do so with full confidence and great expectation. Unfortunately...
