    Chest genetics aren't there, sorry mate. Tough to see here but my chest is definitely there when flexed right. In that photo it's tough to flex.

    What’s up nerds! Long time no talk! Quick question! I have been tracking calories to lose weight (from 225 to lean/healthy, whatever that may be). MFP has me at 2400 calories per day for 2lbs per week. I thought this would be hard but I am low on calories everyday. I tend to eat 400-500 for breakfast, 600 ish for lunch and 600-800 for dinner. With snacks I tend to be around 2k per day. Factor in daily dog walks/runs and lifting and I am at a pretty steep deficit. I started tracking around late December/Jan 1st and have dropped from 222lbs to 213.

    Do I need to eat more? I feel fine (great actually), eat good Whole Foods, we cook most our meals from cooking light recipes. I know losing weight super fast isn’t good, and my goal is to get healthier, not be skinny and unhealthy. I’m not in a race to drop weight, I am just trying to give my heart the best chance to live past 50 haha.

    If your goals are to maintain muscle mass, aim to lose no more than 2lbs per week.

    I don't use MFP or any other calculator to tell me how many calories I burn a day. Virtually no calculator will be accurate. If you don't have a baseline just determine how many lbs per week you have been losing at 2400. If you are losing 3lbs per week then you need to up your calories by 500 per day to lose 2lbs per week.

    Also keep your protein up to preserve mass.

    Hey guys. Looking to expand my garage gym with some dumbbells finally. I'm debating between either the PowerBlocks or the Bowflex adjustable sets. Anyone have experience with either or preferably both? Looking for opinions.

    I like the PowerBlocks because they're square and make pushup rows easier and more stable, however I've used them before and adjusting the weight is a bit of a pain sometimes. I've never used or seen the Bowflex ones but my girlfriend has them at her work and says they're easily adjustable and pretty solid. Price difference is only $20 so that's not a factor. PowerBlock does have a 10 year warranty over Bowflex 2 year warranty which I also like.

    Powerblocks for sure. What do they max out at?

    I just don't really see myself needing more than 50. I don't think I've ever even used bigger than a 50lb dumbbell. I'm also super scrawny though and I'm not really lifting to get big and bulky. But, if I am spending the money, I think I might as well just spend the extra 45 now and have the ability to expand to 70 or 90 pounds should I ever need it

    I own the bowflex dial weights.

    I really like them. They are a solid dumbell.

    If you don’t use dumbells a lot or space and price are a concern they are perfect.

    But

    I really only use them for my PT. I prefer regular dumbells at my gym.
    #1 for chest I use over 54lbs
    #2 the dialweights are longer with a thicker grip. They can be harder on your elbows and hands when using them. But thats almost a plus in some cases because they work your grip and forearms more.

    I’ve used them for P90X and I liked them for that.

    Space is limited in my garage hence getting adjustable dumbbells. I have a squat/bench rack, TRX, and a plyo box. Like I said in my other post, I'm not really looking to get big and bulky working out at home. I usually don't do a lot of bench press stuff anyways due to the strain it puts on my elbows and shoulders. I would most likely use them for singe leg dead lifts, pushup rows, rows, curls, etc.

    Have you used the PowerBlocks before, or just the Bowflex? I heard the same thing about the Bowflex longer/thicker "complaint" as well.

    If you are not doing heavy lifting they fit the bill just fine.

    I have not used the box kind. I imagine those may limit wrist movement.

    Ya, I don't plan to do any very heavy lifting. If I do, I'll move my workouts to an actual gym.

    I've also heard that the PowerBlocks limit some wrist movement. But I used to use them in college when I played volleyball and never noticed them to be an issue

    Ok gents, lets play a fun game called “What would you do?”

    I finish my workout tonight and head to the locker room.

    I get my bag out to get my stuff to go shower. I turn around and this 20 something year old guy is face timing with his girlfriend.

    I normally don’t ever say things to people, but this was something I could not walk away from without speaking up.

    How would you handle this?

    Is whipping your dick out and helicoptering in plain view of the camera an option?

    But seriously, who the fuck facetimes in a locker room?
