Wow, thanks for the tips, Crocodile. I'll try those once I actually get a decent amount of time to go back to the gym. Last couple of weeks I couldn't go at all due to time constraints. I'm sure that these exercises can only help after all. The finger strength tip is especially helpful since for some reason people keep recommending those little clamp type things? That you squeeze to inrease grip strength. I think that's more for your entire hand rather than specifically fingers.A Big Crocodile wrote:Lucent, if you want to increase upper body strenght, there's a couple of things you can do. First of all, pull-ups are the king of upper body exercises, but getting reps in may be hard at first. I struggle with this as well, so I'm going to try this:
You'll also need some pressing strength, but if your upper body is weak, then dips are not for you as your form will be all over the place. So I'd start with either a bench press, or, my favourite, the overhead press. You can also do both.
And lastly, meat doesn't need to be all that expensive. Most protein is found in chicken, and it's much cheaper to buy a whole chicken, cut it up and freeze the parts you don't immediately need. I don't know the price of chicken where you are, but I bet that for the price of a whole fileted chicken breast you can almost buy an entire chicken.

Did that rock concert hosted for you by Ethiopia make you feel bad? ?Jassassino wrote:Got a year that I'm planning on really hitting the gym with before k head back into higher education for a bit. Any advice? I used to go a lot but it's been about two years since I've had intensive exercise really. Looking to build some serious mass and haven't really received any legitimate, personal advice from anyone (only stuff I know to do/about is just what I've read online)
