Beginner strength trainer here who just increased the weight of her dumbbells.
  • A lot of that depends on you, your goals and your available equipment.. someone interested in strength training with barbells / powerlifting might gravitate towards 5/3/1. Strong curves is a program directed towards ladies and uses dumbbells, bands, etc. Check out the boostcamp app, it has a lot of free programs to choose from, with workout tracking and explanations of each lift

    It's generally agreed that following an established program is definitely better than almost any DIY solution. You don't want to be spinning your wheels, you want to be getting the best bang for your buck and making progress

  • Congrats on the progress, keep it up! I started lifting weights for the first time during Covid and since then I've turned into that annoying person who won't stop talking about the benefits to anyone who will listen. Before long people will start to notice, and you'll be asked to lift and carry heavy crap

  • If you understand this meme, I hope your back is feeling fine today.
  • The best thing I ever did for my back was take up weightlifting (Specifically deadlifts) I've got degenerative disease plus a herniated disc plus spinal arthritis and was living with chronic pain, and now I feel like I'm 20 again. I would encourage anybody with back pain to add deadlifts to their life if possible. Anybody needs any help getting started can drop me a line

  • I tried to us an iPad like a Computer
  • Apple is staunchly against allowing iPads to run a real OS, despite the hardware being more than capable. They don't want you to replace your laptop, they want you to need both the laptop and the iPad. If I could get OS X or Linux on an iPad I would make it my primary device tomorrow. But they really fight to keep that segmentation in place

    Dumb question: could I use leftover foam from a pelican case as a filter?

    I picked up one of these fluval 13.5 gallon aquariums, and it has a little chamber for filtration on the back. SOMEONE ripped up the default foam block that fits in there, and it got me wondering if I could use some of that modular foam that comes in pelican cases? Or should I just buy the replacement?

    NGD: I may have gone a little overboard

    I had some difficulty deciding which mahogany Martin guitar to choose and somehow ended up with both the 00-15 and 000-15sm

    Recommendation: Do a Powerbomb

    Recently I decided to give reading comics another chance. I’ve been on hiatus since I was a kid, and ended up starting with “Do a Powerbomb” If you don’t already have this on your reading list I would highly suggest it. High flying action? Check. Over the top climax? Check. Heartfelt ending? Check. The art and story were awesome, and overall just really stoked about it!
