If you don't squat or deadlift you're missing out

    I decided to up the intensity on my workouts and added box jumps into the mix.
    I do them the same days I do planks and hypertensions.
    It will get your heart rate up for sure and really good for CNS/reaction/explosive speed improvement which will help in your big three lifts.

    I don't do squats, deadlifts, curls, bench presses, etc. anymore. I did them for 30 yrs. when I was a lot younger. I now drink beer and eat ice cream. :green:

    I won’t quit doing this if I have any say in it.

    It makes me feel too damn good all the time.

    I usually go at 6am so it’s time that I would normally just be sitting in front of the TV wasting time anyway.

    No pills in a bottle, no magic potion can replace pushing iron and getting your heart pumping on a regular schedule

    Exactly! I did it at 6:30 in the mornings with the coaches before school started. Revved me up for the day and felt good. Initially had a powdered protein drink in the AM but eating right will do it just as well.

    Went from about 165 to 215/220 lbs. in less than a year (40 yrs. ago!) which at 6'2" felt very good.

    Dang you beefed up brother!
    I’m 6”6 and am sitting at 250 and I wear 36” waist pants.
    I got down to 242 this spring and have bulked back up to 250 but my waist has actually gotten a tad smaller while I was gaining weight on the scale.
    I’m eating about 3000 calories a day with about 260 grams of protein which is tough to do without using the protein shakes to help hit that number.
