re: BONUS THREAD: Trip to Yellowstone, Grand Teton & Jackson Hole OR Costa Rica Suggestions - LSUtiger17 on 4/8/21 at 5:40 pm
Sugar Beach in St. Lucia was amazing in January. Not sure about how the weather is there in July though. That's peak season for Yellowstone/Grand Teton though. Pros and cons there with the traffic ...

I think this is slightly misleading. Sure, there seems to be a pretty strong correlation. But it's easy to forget that just about everyone is overweight. A BMI of 25 is overweight. So 6' 185lbs is technically overweight. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (3)
re: Question about the COVID mRNA vaccine. - LSUtiger17 on 3/18/21 at 12:55 pm
[quote]Think of a spike protein like a bullet. A bullet by itself is relatively harmless unless fired from a gun. The protein is only one ingredient the virus needs to do harm. But it is a unique ingredient to the virus. So it is used as an indicator to train you body to know how to kill the virus.[...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Dumbbell and Kettlebell Only Workout - LSUtiger17 on 3/14/21 at 2:36 pm
I recently purchased some powerblock dumbbells and a few kettlebells. I don’t have access to a barbell. I’m planning a program based on these two types of weights, pull-ups, and push-ups. Pull-ups and push-ups will be frequency method 5-6 days/week. I’m planning an A-B workout plan to do 3x a week. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: "Starter" Home Gym Suggestions - LSUtiger17 on 3/9/21 at 1:04 pm
Thanks for the recs and input, everyone. I confirmed that I can cancel my gym membership at the end of the month and went ahead and ordered the Powerblock Elite 5-90 dumbbells. Apparently they haven't been in stock for months, so I jumped on them. I'll probably order a Rogue Fold Up Utility Bench in...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

"Starter" Home Gym Suggestions - LSUtiger17 on 3/9/21 at 9:29 am
I'm looking at building a "starter" home gym. I put "starter" because there's a pretty significant caveat--I can't have a barbell or power rack. These will be added in the future (probably when I move in about a year), but, for now, I don't have any space. I also can't have rings because I don't hav...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (8)

Did a 10000 kettlebells workout. Only used 44lbs and it still kicked my butt. I decided to do weighted pullups in between sets. I'm expect to be hurting tomorrow, but will definitely work this in more often...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
