    Back on topic, Circuit training day!

    5 x 5 minute full body circuit, :30 second breaks in between.

    take a 2 minute break to stretch and then do it once more.

    Got my 13mm Inzer Forever belt yesterday, then promptly got trapped in it. :lol:

    Seriously, you need to break that thing in first. That leather is so thick and stiff that it took me like 10 minutes to unbuckle it (5 minutes of which involved lots of swearing and a minor panic attack).

    A true bro skips leg day though... "because my legs are already big enough and I run a lot so don't have to train them"

    soooo much real life

    Everytime I squat people look at me like "What the hell is that guy doing in the curl rack?"

    Since you're posting in the weightlifting thread, I gotta ask, is the Anavar in your name a reference to what I think it is? :flex:

    When we were trying to think of our band name, one of us jokingly said, steriods, then after we kept joking around we came to Anavar. We couldnt think of anything better so we ran with it.

    Every now and then, someone picks up on it and has a laugh, and every time we see our name on posters for shows we think its the funniest thing ever.

    All of us in the band are pretty committed lifters, cept the singer, so it kinda fits to i guess.

    Got a nice little bonus at work, treated myself to some new toys.

    [​IMG]

    Got an Inzer 13mm Forever Belt (in the requisite red, white and blue :usa:)
    Wei-Rui VX3 Fury Weightlifting Shoes (had my first squat session in them today, felt really good, but it's my deload week, real test will come next week)
    Rogue Flat Utility bench (finally got a competition size bench, my old one was a cheapo adjustable that was almost 23" high (this one is ~18"), couldn't get any leg drive, this one is so much better)

    And my home gym. What, you bros don't have a power rack in your dining nook?

    ^^^ I've always wondered how it felt to do cleans in real WL shoes.
    Using regular shoes one must be careful to not over-pull the bar back, especially when you have a glass window right behind :lol:. (speaking of myself)

    I settled on wrestling shoes many years back for the squat and deadlift, mainly so I didn't fry my street shoes.
    Whenever I do squats in regular shoes it does relieve the lower-back some, and it hits my lower quads better around the tear-drops.
    I suppose like most things it's better to change it up for variation. (well more for physique work not powerlifting)

    Leg day cometh. Finally get to squat and deadlift on a free bar, instead of Planet Fitness' shitty smith machines. HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO GET SWOLE ON A SMITH MACHINE, PF?

    I jest, because they can be useful. But I've noticed a huge improvement in my form and strength since going to gyms that have power racks instead.

    Snapped a picture that marks 10 weeks since I started lifting since high school. I was a measly 140 lbs. when I started, now I'm sitting between 150-151.5 on a good day. Still have a ways to go before I get to my initial goal (which I will continue to smash thereafter), but I'm happy with my progress thus far.

    Shit man, looks like proper progress for 10 weeks. I started out a good 50lbs heavier and when I gained 10-15lbs it didn't show nearly as well.

    I've become addicted. :lol: I'm still so far off from where I want to be, but I'm proud of the progress. I'm trying to add another 15-20 lbs by the end of the year, so we'll see how that goes. My 3,000 calorie diet may need to be multiplied to make it happen, but that's how you get swole, amirite? :flex:

    Damn, dude. I've been working out and on a bulking diet for probably about as long as you, and haven't made nearly those kinds of gains. I started at about 180-182 and I'm only up to about 186-189. And I don't show nearly as well as you, either. Good damn job!

    Haha, this made me laugh. I got stuck in my forever belt too, years ago. If you can find a pillar you can wrap the loose portion around it and twist your hips til it comes undone.

    Thinking about trying to follow this plan:
    Bodybuilding.com - Get Swole: Cory Gregory's 16-Week Muscle Building Trainer

    I've been loosely following BB's "Big Man On Campus" plan, but not very strictly, only using it for certain days when I don't know exactly what I want to do in the gym. Otherwise, I just look at it for inspiration. Does anyone else here strictly follow a particular plan, or are most of you just "do your own thing" kind of guys who develop their own plans?
