Probably a couple thousand for a good home gym. And then around 50 a month for a membership. So that's 40 months, or 3 1/3 years worth, for a gym that you can call all your own for as long as you take care of it all.

r8 my form    
the bar isnt in the shot but it goes a bit ahead of my midfoot    
I realized my toes were pointed out too far until a few workouts ago, so i fixed that and i can feel the squat a bit more in my quads than before    
Im concerned about my form because i have a pain in the posterior-lateral part of my knee (that long tendon) that occurs when my knee bends far enough (a bit farther than my squat depth)    
will post another vid of squat and 2 of deadlifts

Also, try switching to alternate between front squats and back squats.
User avatar #22777 to #22763 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Personally I don't see any huge issues. I'm assuming that you're still a bit new and getting used to form and stuff like that. Only major issue I can see is that your hands are super close together to where your elbows are touching your back, that's pretty close and it's hard to keep the bar stable like that. Otherwise you look stable as you lift, and you are going deep enough. If your hamstrings feel tight then try to stretch them, sometimes your body takes a while to get used to working under a load.
User avatar #22882 to #22777 - nyawgga (12/29/2014) [-]

ALWAYS stretch your hamstrings, quads, and hips before squats.

Hamstrings I will usually find a square pillar, like on a squat rack or a ceiling support, and place one leg going straight up, while one leg is off the pillar, both are straight at the knees. Try to keep your ass as close to the pillar as possible.

Quads = Couch Stretch

Hips = Pigeon Stretch

Before stretching I'll usually warm up with some normal squats, toe touch squats, burpees, etc.
User avatar #22778 to #22777 - derpityhurr (12/26/2014) [-]
I'm concerned because i've been getting a pain behind my knees from squatting, more in one knee than the other which is prolly cus one side comes up earlier as baglesbites said
It goes away with rest but comes right back after a workout
User avatar #22782 to #22778 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
I see. Well too be honest I know nothing about mobility work, whenever I feel tight I do light warm-ups and a few sprints. I've never done any kind of corrective work for pain like that. Baglesbites seems to know more then me when it comes to that subject.
#22767 to #22763 - baglesbites (12/26/2014) [-]
Judging by the videos, your hips and hamstrings both need mobility work. In the second video your one side comes up slightly faster. Look up the agile 11 routine, I've heard great things about it. It could also be your glutes not firing out of the hole. A que I used to help with glute activation is to try and spread the floor with my feet as I start back up on the squats. You also need to try and strengthen your upper back because in the first video your shoulders looked slightly caved in. Right now this may not be a problem but when the weight gets heavy it could be dangerous. Your best bet would to be add more heavy rows or chin ups (palms in with a close grip). The deadlift video shows also looks like you're using too much lower back because your hips are too high. If you start with them slightly lower, you will get a much stronger contraction out of the posterior chain and it will help protect the lower back
User avatar #22768 to #22767 - derpityhurr (12/26/2014) [-]
Thats most likely cause i have one tight hamstring; is that a stretch/mobility routine?

I think i dont bring my hips low enough is cause my hamstrings are tight so it doesnt allow me to but that does make sense
#22764 to #22763 - derpityhurr (12/26/2014) [-]
this was with 155, my 5x5 weight was 160

The rear of my knees are sore too    
My deadlift seems pretty fine, however my knees slightly cave in which you can see in the next post   
is that cause my stance is wider than it should be?

I did 135 in these clips but my 5 rep set was with 200   
i know my hands were a bit wide, fixed that during my heavier set   
Is it normal to feel a sort of pull in my lower back during deadlifts?

User avatar #22784 to #22766 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Next thing I noticed was that your hips shoot up right when you start your lift, not much, but still noticeable. That's why you feel a little pull on your lower back.

That happens you are using your legs at first and trying to squat the weight.
It's a hard thing to explain over the internet and without personal instruction, but you should hinge at your hips and start the lift with a pull from your back, then use your legs, then use both your back and legs at the same time to lock it out. These are super quick transitions that you shouldn't have to think about, and it's a hard movement pattern to teach.
User avatar #22783 to #22766 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
When you're deadlifting, try to keep your shoulders back, take your shoulder blades and bring them together and then down a little bit. You'll look like you are puffing your chest out, and that will stabilize your whole upper body throughout the lift.

As for your lower back, it's one of the biggest muscle groups worked during the deadlift, so you'll feel it work during no matter what. Get used to that.

As for your knees, your feet are probably facing inward, or they're completely straight. Combat them shifting in by angling your toes and your knees slightly outward. You'll feel more stable that way and you'll recruit some of your inner thighs and groin muscles to assist in the pull. It should be about a 30 degree angle outward from in front of you, so don't be having your legs too wide during the lift.

I'll watch a few more times to see if I notice anything else.

User avatar #22794 to #22793 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
I wouldn't call them small. I went to subway and got a footlong, then went home and had the remaining amount of our mashed potatoes from yesterdays dinner, which was a fairly large container, then I grabbed a protein shake along with a banana and cheese stick. I wouldn't be surprised if I ate 1500 calories in that 30 minute period. I regularly eat 4 or 5 meals with about 1000 calories each in them. I'm a tall fucker with a quick metabolism, and now that I'm over 200 pounds it's only gotten worse.

Strength and size are not mutually exclusive. If you get stronger, you will get bigger (unless of course we're talking about learning new movements where you add weight simply because you're getting better at them).

Besides, I was just asking him. Not all questions are underhanded slants. It really was just a question.
#22757 to #22756 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/26/2014) [-]
No shit they're not exclusive, nothing I said would imply that.
And if that wasnt an underhanded slants, you really need to work on your phrasing.
You wouldn't be offended if someone saw your routine and said: Is a fat gut and shitty aesthetics worth it?
User avatar #22758 to #22757 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]

#22760 to #22758 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/26/2014) [-]
So then why hate on this guy just bc his goals are different?
He's probably either losing weight or cutting to be more aesthetic. Why call him out and imply he's not as strong as he could be?
User avatar #22779 to #22760 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
I never hated on him. I never said he was weak. You can be strong, but with stifled improvements. Stifled doesn't mean small, it means restricted.
#22803 to #22779 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/27/2014) [-]
Thats exactly what I said. "Not as strong as he could be"
Theres nothing wrong with cutting dude. Having abs is fantastic. Don't hate what you dont understand.

Lol dude, I understand alllll of this. I'm actually gonna be going on a cut in February, and I'm gonna try to get decently shredded just for the sake of 'been there done that'. I just like making fun of the 'hungry skeleton' lyfestyle. But that's not what this dude has going, he replied to my comment saying that he wasn't in that situation, and he's just hungry a lot.

Stop judging me because you think I'm judging other people. srs.
#22817 to #22810 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/27/2014) [-]
He's eating as much as he can and still hungry, therefore he's not trying to get abs and his strength gains aren't stifled, therefore you assumed wrong, therefore you're wrong. Easy stuff.
User avatar #22820 to #22817 - studbeefpile (12/27/2014) [-]
"As much as he can". 90% of the time someone says they 'eat tons of food' they're really not eating that much. People don't know what a ton of food is.

Regardless.....I'm a pretty blunt guy. Just because I say something that might sound slanted or sarcastic, doesn't necessarily mean it is. Like I said before, people have asked me how it feels to be unaesthetic as fuck, and I answer them straight forward. I'm a fat kid that likes to lift heavy things. That's all there is to it.

Besides, I think you're just being pissy because I have the immortal deadlift gains of peace (srs) that are far beyond your pulling power, so you're trying to 'make' me wrong about something. (srs)

Doing deadlifts on the floor just lieing flat on my back with dumbbells. I'm starting to feel shit in my neck and am unsure of how to make it stop. I know I shouldn't be feeling anything in my neck, and can't be sure if its only related to the deadlifts or not, but I also can't think of anyway that having bad form would somehow cause stress on the neck. Any advice?

bench press*
User avatar #22744 to #22743 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Ahh, that makes more sense. Those are floor presses if your lying on the floor, not so much bench presses.

Just try to relax your neck as you lift the weight, you are probably tensing up as you try to press, and your neck is in an awkward position. So keep you head laying on the floor and try to relax it while only focusing on your pressing muscles.

**cliffordlover used "*roll picture*"**
**cliffordlover rolled image** I started doing a new workout routine. 10 exercises for 40 seconds each and 20 seconds rest. I guess you're not really burning many calories in 10 minutes, but I almost threw up after 7. I had to walk outside in the cold to cool off. I could barely do some of the exercises because of my knees, though. It's sad. My legs are like nothing but muscle, but I can't do shit with them because of how bad my knees are.

Marinepenguin, it's been a while, but I think we're the same height. Do you have troubles with your knees? I've had surgery on both, so I know that's part of it, but I've heard tall people generally have more knee troubles.

Also, thanks for answering my question.
User avatar #22739 to #22737 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]

User avatar #22741 to #22739 - cliffordlover (12/26/2014) [-]
I was doing lunges and dislocated my right kneecap, so I broke part of my kneecap and my femur. As far as I know, they're both fixed.

For my left leg, I was playing basketball, and I dislocated it because I tore my MPFL, so I broke that kneecap, too. They reconstructed my MPFL and took out the chunk of that kneecap. I don't think fixing the kneecap actually has anything to do with it, but I'm mentioning it because my left one is still numbish.

It may have nothing to do with it. I just wondered if you had the problem. Your opinions are the only ones I listen to this board usually.
User avatar #22742 to #22741 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Oh geez dude. Those are some issues. I honestly couldn't tell you what to do to help rehab those in good faith, because I've never had any sort of injury like that. I'm sorry I can't do much for you there. Only thing I could tell you is to not do leg extensions if youre doing them. Those put a lot of sheer forces on your knees.

And I'm flattered that you listen to my advice!

First day with rack, instead of resting in between sets I did as many quality pull ups as possible, it was already tough on its own but adding those pull ups and chinups was torture. At the end of the workout I had done 112 total pullups. I'm gonna do this every day. Eventually I'll start adding more weight instead of reps.
#22729 - marinepenguin (12/25/2014) [-]
Here's the rack that I got. So super excited about having it.
User avatar #22745 to #22729 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
Nice dude.

Is that bench attached to it? If so, that sucks....If not, you can slide a movable bench in there*, and use the longer racks as a fail safe so you can actually bench to failure, or attempt 1RMs without fear. That's what I do. I have a very similar rack.

* I'm saying this because the bench has to be in a very specific position in order for you to be able to un-rack the weight and bench to your chest, with the weight staying over the safety racks.
User avatar #22746 to #22745 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
Nope I just put that bench in there. And yeah I figured. There's a lot of shit I've wanted to do, but haven't been able to. Stuff like wide grip deadlifts, pin presses, and stuff like that. I'm gonna love this rack.
User avatar #22747 to #22746 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
.....why wouldn't you have been able to do wide grip deadlifts in the past?
User avatar #22748 to #22747 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
When you do wider grip you should raise the starting point of the lift up a little. It allows you to start in a more favorable position and use more weight then normal. Also has a lower chance of injury.
User avatar #22749 to #22748 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
You silly. One of the main points of wide grip pulls is to increase the range of motion. Not to mention you're forced to get your hips a little bit lower. I worked Snatch Grip Deads for a little while, I really like them.

Rack pulls are a totally separate deal.
User avatar #22750 to #22749 - marinepenguin (12/26/2014) [-]
That's only if your goal is to actually increase rom for your deadlift, if increasing rom was my goal I'd do deficit deadlifts. I do wide grip deads for back, have you ever done higher reps for them? The whole yolk of your back is destroyed when done properly.

But that's just my personal opinion.
User avatar #22751 to #22750 - studbeefpile (12/26/2014) [-]
Yeah I catch your drift. Definitely have to keep your upper back tight for them. -lol bruh, you askin me if i dun high reps on da deadlift?

When I did them the main goal was to help my lockout, and help me get more comfortable in the bottom position, so I did them off the ground. I get what your point is though.

Hit up 365 for 6 on deadlift. Not quite what I wanted to hit, but it felt like a pretty off day. I'm tired, haven't deadlifted seriously in a little over a week, etc. So I did a few back off sets. 315 for a 3x3, paused reps. Pause deadlifts are fun.

Gonna try to get 365 for 8-10 next pull session. If I can't hit those numbers, I'll back down to about 335 and try to get that to 20 reps instead.

He probably means that the exercises would be different to accommodate for a lack of a bar bell. You possibly could but it would be harder I think, since you would have to effectively have a ton of weights to manage it. Also some things may not be safe to do for lack of stability.

I honestly would recommend joining a facility that is going to provide you with quality equipment so you can do this safely. I suppose though if you are starting with really low weight that could wait some time.

I'll go first. I got a power rack for Christmas. I'll post a picture when I get it out together. But it's my favorite because well, gains brah.

It's fucking sweet. It's only a half rack, not a full cage. But it's a huge upgrade from what I had, and now I can do proper pull ups instead of my pullups from the garage support beams.
User avatar #22728 to #22726 - studbeefpile (12/25/2014) [-]
That's what I have, and it's done fine for me. Gains time.

Tomorrow will be my second consecutive year deadlifting on Christmas day. I mean to make a tradition out of it. Will be doing 365 for AMRAP to see where I'm at. Gonna work it up to 20 over the next little while, same as I did with 315....

it begins anew....

Benching today. Doing 150 for 12, shouldn't be too bad. I haven't reached a weight that is super challenging yet. Once I get to 165 it should start to be a real struggle.

Also I'm still doing those incline bench drms and still progressing in weight, which suprises me. I'm doing 3x8 today with 155 pounds, although I can't imagine I'll be able to get all I reps in a row on the last set.

Also I am switching back to skullcrushers today, my biggest dumbbells (65 pounds) got too light, so I'll do some incline behind the head skullcrushers that KungFuZerO mentioned a little while ago.

All in all, looking forward to the gym today as my chest has been progressing very quickly.

If you every wanna switch up your incline chest, i love landmine presses.
User avatar #22695 to #22694 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
I do those sometime. But those are more for shoulders then upper chest I'd say.
#22696 to #22695 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/24/2014) [-]
You might be doing them too high. They would use much less shoulder than normal or incline bb bench if you're pushing out at about a 45 degree angle.
User avatar #22697 to #22696 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
I see. The first I'd ever heard of them was in a shoulder workout article. So I used it and it's always been felt more in my shoulder then in my upper chest. I could see it being an upper chest workout if you tweaked the movement a little.
#22699 to #22697 - KungFuZerO ONLINE (12/24/2014) [-]
Yeah, theres not very much leaning forward

Tried something new for back today. 3 different super sets: Pullups/shrugs, bent rows/deads, db rows/reverse flys.
Felt amazing, gonna have to try it with chest tomorrow.
User avatar #22700 to #22699 - marinepenguin (12/24/2014) [-]
Ohhhhh yeah I don't do it like that. I do it with one hand, standing up straight, bar is over my shoulder. I could see how that's more of an upper chest movement.

And nice, I actually managed to do 155 with my incline bench, although it was just barely. Those DRMs for pretty much every compound movement is an absolute killer.
