  4. Hi there, I'm a competitive runner who's moving to Wellington next week, and am looking for a gym in Wellington with the best possible range of cardio equipment? Money is no object for me. The equipment I'm specifically thinking of includes: - Jacobs Ladder - Stair climber machine - The best range of ellipticals Your help is hugely appreciated!
  5. Thank you so much!! that is really helpful :)
  6. ah ok just need to build those muscles and more important, your connection to those muscles up. adjustable machines at gyms would help but like they've already suggested above, knee pushups could get you there too if you start from something like 20 a day in morning, 20 a day in afternoon, then increase that number by 5 each day until you hit a wall. the starting point of 20 may be a bit much, so adjust it to your own ability. the other approaches (and these are just general approaches people take to increase their pushup max in general) is to set a number like 100 and do as many sets as it takes until you reach that number. could that that while watching tv in the afternoon or something. if studying a lot then take micro break every hour and do 20 pushups every time you take a short walk around to rest the eyes/go toilet or something. the key is repetition, once you have the muscle connection it's easier to develop that muscle. cardio vascular fitness will also help depending on what your goal is.
  7. Nationals done. Came 3rd in the open 120 class. Pretty tough class tbh! PBs all round but not what a wanted to achieve. Next year eh. Squat 250/262.5/pass 3rd Bench 185/190x/190 Deads 275/290/300
  8. Most girls can't do a proper pushup first try, so definitely don't be embarrassed by it lol. Like ratz said, just do knee push-ups and like you've been doing, pushing actions against counter tops and the like. You can also do it daily unless you're going to absolute failure.
  9. Rear delt starting to redevelop. Some improvement in the remaing medial delt. Really should get better at taking pictures and find somewhere with decent lighting.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Fairly average female build, 1.7m and 58kg
  12. are you quite overweight by chance? what is weight/roughly how fat are you (out of curiosity). it could be more beneficial to just hit the gym for a little while atleast to help you build up the shoulders/chest/arms.
  13. I know, it's so pathetic!! Yeah and I've been doing them against higher objects like a desk
  14. Jesus m8 haha. Well why don't you start doing some cheat ones if you can? Just using your knees as the point of contact with the ground instead of your feet? Can you do that or nah?
  15. Hey I can't do a single full pushup, would it be realistic to aim to be able to do a couple in two weeks? My cardio is fine, I'm just pretty weak...

  17. wooops so much for keeping a log and training consistently lol. did deads again yesterday up to 160kg for 2 reps this time. didn't feel quite right, like i'm using my back too much and legs a lot less so will take it back to basics from the next session. body weight consistently at 65kg over the last week. feeling of doms is quite overwhelming these days, reminds me of when i first started all those years ago lol.

  22. 1. if your rack of choice doesn't come with the addons you want, ask the company if they sell it. 2. contact this dude on FB with details of your rack, ask him if he can make what you want : 3. here are measurements of standard olympic barbell 131cm is the length between the collars or whatever they're called. now this is assuming you have an IPF / IWF spec bar but double check. it would have to be a pretty shit rack to not cater to a standard oly bar, but now you have the measurements you need to deterine that for yourself. 4. do a bit more research before buying racks and don't be afraid of the 2nd hand market, you may find some pretty sweet deals. also i have no idea how strong you are but you probably don't need to go super heavy duty everything. remember you may have to sell all this some day and more you spend, the greater your losses are hence the recommendation to check 2nd hand market first. trademe, fb for sale pages etc. just whatever you do, don't cheap out on the bar. ps if you are in auckland and wanna buy a cheap but proven dead platform suitable for indoors (3 piece so easy to transport, easy to get in to normal house/rooms) then let me know. just been sitting around since i sold my home gym.
  23. a simple non violent solution to this would be to kiss the dude and tell him you had a good time last night. #nohomo
  24. ok there are side effects of too much b12. you don't want too much, not sure if your doc explained this to you. i too fall low in various areas regularly (mainly iron levels) but of all the tests i've had, b12 has never been an issue whilst using multi vits (consistently as high as they can measure, 999 or something) proven from blood tests which i've had both with and without consistent multi vit consuption. you've already had a one off injection which should have sorted you for a LONG time unless you have some serious liver issues.. i highly recommend starting from the basics atleast get a 1 a day multi vit in there ( this one can be found cheap at most nz supermarkets and sort your diet out... actually the diet doesn't even have to be that 'healthy' for most normal people to store up a good supply of b12, but i don't know your lifestyle/training regiment either so especially if you are quite an active person then you should absolutely prioritise diet. also out of curiosity, in case there are underlying issues. did you get blood test done a period of time after the injection to see if levels dropped off? how long after? then did you follow up again after another period to see if it's dropping off still? do you still have copy of blood tests, what are those b12 levels?
  25. It's gotten easier the last year or two from what I've heard. You even get time outs if you're too stressed? 😒
  26. Stuff doing basic or Corps training in your 30's, but good on you if you get to do it
  27. Is there no age limit to join?
