Please follow my journey and help lend your advice and motivation. This is my first serious attempt at changing myself into a complete beast. I

    Every daily entry will be posted in this format.

    Hey everyone,

    I just put up a subscription service that notifies you once per day about the
    new posts I make in my log. If I make 5 posts a day, it will still only notify
    you only once.

    Please go here and register: http://yanyanxu.com/subscribe/

    You should be able to play with your settings as well, it also allows you to
    turn off subscriptions, etc. So if you decide you don't want these emails
    anymore, you can do it all within the same link.

    Thanks all!

    if you remove the belt during exercises, it will require more stabilization, further developing the abdominals by indirect engagement...

    same applies to the wrist straps

    duno if you have a medically presing issue that would require a belt/wrist straps, but if not, I personally would ditch them from everything.


    just my .02

    keep gettin after it

    The reason I use wrist wraps is because I've sprained my wrists 3 times. I don't want this to happen again, so I try to stay safe.

    For the belt, I got it for powerlifting. I only use it when I go really heavy or want to do something stupid/fun .
