In Shape Today
Stop procrastinating and begin your healthy life today!
Name a better Core exercise.
Gay exercise. Do a clean you lazy fat sack of shit.
I don't like to be injured
Clean 30kg, you can do that right, even women can...
I don't know how heavy that is because I'm not a communist gay, and use the superior US customary units
But anyway increasing weight and reps only raises risk of injury at almost no reward since every muscle group in the clean can be hit by other heavy compound movements
If you are proficient in math just multiply the KGs by 2.205 or close enough with 2.2.
Nah I'd rather just continue to boycott decimalized autism
My us pound is a direct descendent of the Roman libra and its arbitrary weight is a much more practical value than the equally functionally arbitrary gram and kilogram. It's made of 16 ounces which I can cleanly divide by 2, 4 and 8. All my countrymen use the pound and foreigners are retards who I don't want to engage with.
While I'm on the topic
My foot is a foot
My digit is an inch
My pace is a yard
My tablespoons are a tablespoon
My teaspoons are a teaspoon
My cup (not a glass) is a cup
12 inches is divisible by 2, 3, and 4
An inch is divided into 16ths, also a great number
A tablespoon is 3 teaspoons
An ounce is 2 tablespoons
A cup is 8 ounces
A pint is 2 cups
A quart is 2 pints
A gallon is 4 quarts
>but what about precision manufacturing
As a machinist we all used thousandths of an inch, "one thou"
It's cleaner. I fail to see the autism.
>As a machinist we all used thousandths of an inch, "one thou"
As a real machinist I can understand both metric and imperial.
What does that even mean
It achieves the same thing more simply.
But it doesn't
You refusing to learn to plug 2.205 into a calculator does not make the metric system complicated.
seethe and cope imperial dicklet
the millimetre is king
women can clean this dick if you know what i mean
Ceiling of my home gym is too low for cleans. I was fortunate I found a squat rack that was within the height limit. Overhead press hits the ceiling with the bumper plates and I've run out of smaller weights to do overhead press.
More people get injured with deadlifts, cleans are superior as well, works your legs and posterior chain more
More people do deadlifts so I would expect that
Then do it right you fat lazy sack of shit
what's a clean? Video example?
deadlifts work the opposite side dumbass
DL works lower back, not abs. Back squats work abs. It's ok to be a newbie. Welcome.
Ab wheel rollouts
Deadlifts work abs and erectors.
Hanging leg rises
Stir the pot is like weighted planks but without the hassle of loading plates
>Hanging leg rises
this literally the GOAT
Do Russian twists fuck the spine up or not
Flutterkicks, dragonflags, skipping rope. There you go.
I prefer to be truthful
I think this is really bad for your back. I stopped doing these and only do crunches instead and my lower back feels better, less painful.
do deadbugs and focus on keeping all of your back flat to the ground. best thing i ever did for my back and posture
How exactly am I supposed to do these? Back completely straight or back back so my shoulders are a little off the ground?
imagine a string in the middle of your lumbar region pulling to the ground, plant it and hold it there, then do the exercise
Front squat or weighted planks.
Janda-situps. It's not some weird variation like it sounds. It's just doing them correctly which actually uses the abs instead of the hip flexors and, unlike leg raises, can be loaded weight.
hanging leg raises obviously, cause gravity is actually against you when you do it
Anyone do glute-ham raises?
>hanging leg raises
>that glute activation
I'd think on a bench would be better, the slight-extension probably activates the glutes more.
meant to post it in >
Well hanging leg raises. But yeah, these are great. As soon as I started keeping lower back in contact with the ground keeping abs tight, these work my abs like fucking nothing else and give great pump.
Yesterday I did hanging knee raises (could barely do 3x5) and now my obliques are sore which never happens with ab exercises.
why do all core exercises make you look like a retard
>nb4 why do you care what you look like doing exercise
on dip bar, as if you were to do dips, but instead lift up whole body backwards, like a super-leg raise
Never tried it this high but overall I quickly got to like 3x30 and then it's like alright I guess this exercise is done. Took like month.
The same thing but lifting your upper back off the ground too. Literally indisputable better.
My upper back tends to elevate on it's own a bit and I think that's a sign of weakness
I always get pain in my lumbar back after doing lying leg raises. How do you stop that happening?
brace so that your lower back is against the floor throughout the whole rep. if you cant do that then you need to do something easier first
don't do them
alternate between left knee and right knee while riging up the opposite shoulder
almost like sprinting, but lying down
Trying to suck your own cock. 3x5minute reps
is there a video of this exercise? The closest I can imagine is this: https://exrx.net/WeightExercises/RectusAbdominis/BWLyingLegHipRaise
Perhaps OP's image is doing this without bending the hips & knees?
Can someone tell me why can't you just hold legs slightly over the floor I feel my abs burning in this portion of the exercise
you can, but unless your torso is curling into a ball (i.e., lower back leaves the ground and comes up) then your abs will only be contracting isometrically
