i'd say yes, do romanian dumbbell deadlifts if that's as close as you can get. it might be weird, just run with it anyways.

you're probably not getting the depth from the suitcase squat that you're getting in the goblet squats, so focus on the goblet ones. if you want asymmetry do pistol squats instead.
goblets are great for training that depth, it's what you're gonna want when using a barbell.

looking good man :)

I started working with a trainer over the past month to learn the proper form for lifts, squats, etc. Some of the gym membership was paid for by work so I figured I'd use the difference on a trainer in the first month.

Seeing incremental strength increases each week, being very mindful of my rest/recovery time rather than trying to hit the gym every single day (which I'm too busy for anyways), and eating/drinking a LOT of protein.

Feels good man.

Another monthly update:

Hooo boy Romanian deadlifts are right on. The form makes so much more sense loaded instead of without weights. Literally the first one I did, I felt all the oxygen drain from my blood. Not enough to get dizzy or anything, but by the end of five sets I'm pretty sure I breathed all the air in the gym at least twice. Friggin awesome feeling. Can't wait to do it with a bar.

Been a weak month, schedule kinda pushed me to 2 days a week and I got a vicious stomach bug this weekend. Want to lose 5 pounds fast and really "work your core"? Ask your doctor if endocarditis is right for you! :omg: :barf: It's Wednesday already and my obliques are still wrecked.

Really gotta hit May hard, see if I can't push it back to 3 days a week.

Nice job!

I missed ~3 weeks away from the gym due to work and stress and not having a vehicle, but now that's all resolved so I got a workout in this morning. Shaky but relearning the proper form for squats. Feels like I lost strength in just those 3ish weeks.

Looks like I'm falling behind on my monthly posts.

Pulldowns 155#,
Standing shoulder press 80#,
Romanian Deadlifts 120#,
Squat 80#,
Bench press 100#,
Rows 130#.

I hit the max single-dumbbell squat of 75# a couple weeks ago and I can't find a good way to hold a pair of dumbbells besides at my sides so suitcase it is for now. I'm watching the depth; pretty sure I'm getting as close to ATTG as I was with goblets.

Not sure what's going on with my bench press, but whatever. If it stays at 100 for another month I'll start to wonder.

Been really struggling to work out. Just can't find the motivation. I've started and stopped so many times it's becoming a joke. I'm now back at it. I'm focusing on really quick 30 minute workouts. I don't follow any particular pattern as I get bored and fed up otherwise. I just do whatever the fuck my body and head thinks would be good next. At this point in time, I don't really care about efficiency or becoming a master. I just need to move, sweat and get fitter. Using pathetic weights. Don't care. Not taking breaks. Don't care. Not counting reps. Don't care. Not doing anything methodically. Don't. Fucking. Care.

apart from cycling while i was in the UK i did nothing else...tonight i'm playing basketball. I use to play in a team for about 10 years before moving to the UK, and now im back they called me and asked me to play...now, i havent touched a basketball for almost 6 years...so tonight i will be unfit, wont have the touch...and will be utterly shit...and tomorrow im going to hurt like a motherfucker!

but...i think i've worked out, that i dont have any motivation to work out or exercise unless there is a specific goal...with basketball, the goal is to win...with cycling it was to get to work and get home. Maybe your motivation needs to be something like that Dan?

also...yesterday i thought i would see if i can still jump after all these years...and there was a ledge which was about mid thigh high (about 70cm) and i did a box jump and made it without too much hassel...i was pretty stoked with that...by "fit" standards thats probably quite poor...but i think i still have my spring which is cool...we'll see tonight anyway!

I've tried to find different motivating points, such as a friend's wedding, travelling, summer, competing, etc., but it's never been a life-changing experience. Each time I go to a wedding, I don't meet new and exciting people and find a girl. Each time Summer comes, I'm still too damn depressed and fed up to go out and enjoy the sunshine and just stay indoors, mess about on guitar and play video games.

Right now I'm feeling pretty motivated. Not for anything specific. I just want to change and stay changed. My goal is less specific and more far-reaching. Maybe that will actually help, I don't know. I have small goals, of course, such as get down to 12.6 stone, which will then place me in the 'healthy' range. Then I might try and build some muscle, or I could keep trying to lose even more and get my body fat percentage down to something like 15%. This is not for any specific reason other than I hate what I am right now and I want to change. I want to work out, I want to be fit, I want to feel more confident, I want to be stronger.

Thanks for the support, Sam.

i think that to become really fit you need to love what you do, and sure to a certain point there's discipline but if you don't like what you do then it's gonna be a rocky road (ooh ice cream!)

find something that you can enjoy that gets you closer towards being fit, or honestly set SUPER FUCKING SPECIFIC goals and follow them no matter fucking what. if you don't set specific goals as well as not doing an activity you like you're gonna end up half-assing/giving up.

Then there's also the points you have about being depressed and wanting to sit inside playing guitar and video games. You can do things even though you aren't fit, just as you can be fit and feel like that. The best is not to hold off on doing stuff until you get fit, because there's really no reason to.

A lot of people do that with different things, such as girls in relationships go "its gonna be better when we get the baby" - no, it's gonna be the same but you're also gonna have a fucking baby. "wow this new pedal is gonna revolutionize my guitar playing" - yeah, you'll sound slightly different but a good song is still a good song, with or without the perfect fuzz, so don't wait for the perfect fuzz pedal to write that song.

going to the beach and having fun is going to be fun as long as you don't go there to get looked at by girls. I am by most standards a pretty good looking guy, i think, but I still have days where sitting inside playing video games and guitar is what i want to do. Sitting at the beach getting looked at by girls is fucking overrated. going outside doesn't get 10000% better when you look better if that's not really what you want to do either.

I see your point, I do, but don't get caught up in being fit before you start doing shit. Work to get fit and do stuff meanwhile. Don't go cocoon mode on me man :lol:
