    Any great calf workouts that I can do?

    unfortunately I think all calf workouts are just variations of the same thing - calf raises

    Jumping rope will give you a great calf workout as well

    Pretty much this, but seated and standing raises target different areas of the calf muscle, so make sure you are mixing it up.

    Think i finally found my Cruising speed on the treadmill. Able to run for a long time without getting exhausted or out of breath and still keep my heart rate above 140. Did 2.25 miles without walking and could have done more, but i had to go home and get ready for work lmao.

    For those who do cardio at the gym, what machines do you use? i've heard its a good idea to change up your cardio machine every few months and ive been doing strictly treadmill for maybe 5 months now, been thinking about doing the bike next cardio day

    I do treadmill and bike. Usually treadmill with an incline and do H.I.T for about 20 minutes. I use to do stair master a lot. But now the main switch up is instead of 20 minutes in the beginning of the routine I'll do it at the end.

    Do you guys do Cardio before or after lifting? I usually just do a mile to warm/wake up before i lift, but unsure if there is a benefit to doing before or after.

    If you want to activate your test glands then you should ge doing heavy leg exercises.

    Raw unpasteurized eggs is a crapshoot.


    Literally.

    Cutting out or at least limiting sugar/fructose, eating healthy saturated fats and upping your zinc and vitamin-D intake. Also high-intensity exercises and strength training, with shorter rest periods, can also help at boost testosterone levels. Oh yeah don't forget to get more rest.

    So, part of my back workout has me doing deadlifts as follows:

    130 lbs 2x8

    180 lbs 2x8

    220 lbs 2x8

    250 1x8

    Is that good or bad?

    Depends on your current fitness level.

    Do you feel tired at the end? If not then you may need to tweak it.

    mister B, look into starting strength...thats the program i've been doing

    5 reps is perfect imo as you start to get heavier in your lifts. Anything over 5, your body takes longer to recover in between sets.

    I assume the 250x8 is your working set with the others being warmup sets
