    That's one o them there Inzer lever belts. I love that thing. Best belt I've ever had.
    I had 2 buldging disks, pinched sciatic, and mild piriformis tear from really bad form on deadlifts. Just now after about 9 months getting the feeling back in my right foot. Now I'm pulling more weight for more reps and good form with no pain.
    Oh and I'm getting on that blood work.
    yea that's a great belt... i have a 13mm one myself, love it

        When I first got it (for those that don't know. A lever belt needs some assembly for hook location) I put it a spot to tight and levered that thing close. I thought my kidneys were going to touch. Then it was so tight I could only get it unlevered but not undone. Took me like 5 minutes. Sweat pouring off my head. Good stuff
        I'm big enough to admit when I pull dumbass stuff like that. Makes for good times lol

        Really hope all the wedding prep is going smooth as silk. It can be a very trying time for a couple. You just have to keep reminding yourselves that it's your day and roll with it.

          I did the same thing! lol

          hulk, it is comfortable but at first it did dig into my hips a bit... takes time to figure out how to wear it well and break it in.

          On another note... my safety squat bar came in today! it's squat time baby! wooo hoo!

            Yep exactly. I tend to wear this belt a little 'higher' I guess. There are so stiff that wearing them low like you would a regular belt will give you some sweet pinch marks on your hips. I must says that after you figure out where the sweet spot is. They don't move a bit. Definitely a mental thing for me as well.

            Time to get your squat on!!!

            • ? for Layne

              Layne,

              I am 17 and seven week out from my first natural bodybuilding show. I have several questions and you appear to be the man to ask. Your sincerity and intelligence have been very motivating to me. Firstly, my I am 5'9 and 172 pounds, coming down from 190. My diet is as follows: 350g protein, 150g carbs, 35g fat, and 35g MCT oil (Captri from Parillo). I do 30 mins of cardio after every workout (four on, one off) and one hour on off days. The cardio is low intensity, usually a 3.5 mph stroll. The problem is that I am losing a lot of muscle. I've lost nearly twenty pounds and I know I only carried 28-30 pounds of fat to begin with. I don't even have a six pack flexed. What am I doing wrong?

              Thanks,

              Sam.

              P.S. I don't have pictures up because I just joined the forum and between dieting down, training, cardio, and, of course, High School, I haven't had time to take pictures.

                • Well, I dont believe in doing cardio after an intense weight-training session, because you are plunging yourself even deeper into a catabolic.

                  • The 28-30 pounds of fat was according to a scale I used to find my bodyfat just before beginning the diet.

                    I've been doing the cardio post workout because I read in Flex that this is the best time to burn fat. Serves me right for reading that sort of sub-par mag anyway. Should I switch the cardio to evening or night? I'm considering going to HIIT cardio, like 20 minutes alternating between a minute running and a minute walking. Does this sound good?

                        Lyle McDonald recommends moderate intensity cardio after interval training.

                        So if you're following a fat burning protocol like Cosgrove's Afterburn, then you would want to do cardio after the resistance training.

                        As for the scale you used, I assume you are taking about a bioelectrical impedance analyzer.. those are not very accurate, and in my experience tend to read low. You probably had more fat than you realize.

                        I recommend getting a pair of calipers and learning to measure your own skin folds. A cheap Accu-Measure caliper will work and costs like $20 or less.

                            layne i know you recommend the 15/45 HIIT protocol but was wondering how you felt about lyle's reccomendation on that being counterproductive and not optimal as opposed to LISS?
