is that good brad, do we have to like that one?

tobi - nice work on the squats! is that just from getting more comfortable with the technique now?
(and yeah, what SM said - go for chalk, not gloves. or even try liquid chalk stuff if you desperately dont want to go for blocks of it)
if i could think of something witty to say i'd put it here

Hrmm interesting question.

I guess I'm starting to get a bit more comfortable with them, legs aren't hurting as much after etc.
The reason for increasing the weight is a little more random.

I was using one of these as my 5kg 'bar'

Spoiler:


But I couldn't find one in the virgins that went higher than 5kg, there was a 6kg one kicking around once but I couldn't be arsed searching for it each session. So I've 'upgraded' to these

Spoiler:


Which start at 10kg. Once I get used to the weight I'll keep on upping it by 2.5kg until I get to 20kg and I'll transfer over to the normal squat rack.

Blisters on hands are manky & not going anywhere near my titties (my own hands included).

Gloves.

If you got callouses, you don't get blisters, problem solved.

Lifting weights has always been about the muscle embiggening for me. I didn't realise having rough bits of skin on your hand was a thing people strive for.

Even worse.

I like the rugged demeanour of a manual worker with the hands of a homosexual violinist / shop window dresser.

Isn't it a bit of a contradiction putting the effort into looking more masculine while looking like a weiner while doing it?

Ever seen a woman getting ready to go out? It's not pretty.



I had a point, but it made more sense in my head.

I like having calloused hands cause they're more useful for manual work. Try hauling 40m of 40mm mooring rope onto a deck with baby-soft hands, it wouldn't be pleasant.

Sometimes you do, but it's not always practical, or comfortable.

My hands will probably soften up a bit at my new job with the goofy rubber gloves we have to wear.

The ends justify the means. But yeah, pretty much

any Adelaide locals in here?

I took the bike over there on the weekend and did 95km up and down the coast on Sat and then 60km through the hills on Sunday. Some nice roads and damn fine wine of course!

Not sure, but it was no doubt dead lift related... I can barely walk. It's fucked!

It was a pre-existing issue that has returned - my dead lift technique is right it's just bad luck.

Edit: anyway, like I say, I'm not sure what it was. Just woke up yesterday with pain which got progressively worse.
