Blackham I find Romaleos are better as they fit me a bit flatter. Otherwise theres always that Ryderwear brand?

I had romaleos for a month and the sole started to come away from the heel. Sent them back and got reebok legacy lifters. Bit higher heel lift and a lot heavier.

cheers for the above comments. Read quite a bit online and a lot of people rate the Romaleos 2 (those ryderwear are something else) - has anyone ever had a pair, and if so what's there fit like? i'm a UK8 in all other nike shoes. Cheers in advance.

Can someone recommend a skip/jump rope
I have an amazon cheapie but the wire is very thin and lightweight and I’d like a bit more beef!
Ideally something like this without the price tag!

RDX jump rope, maximus; you can cut it to length and the rope is super strong and the handles are comfy and rotate with the rope.

Had mine for donkeys and use it regularly. This one must be the newer model which supersedes mine (similar price as I recall)..

Any one recomend some decent gym shorts with zip pockets? I've gone through loads mostly Nike and Under armour but the only pair I like a some early season gyakusou which have all zip pockets and no inner pant.

Need some workout help from the fuk community.

I want to try and workout at home, with a view to put on some weight this year. Need some help on exercises I should be doing / routines. This is what I have at home:

- Bench with leg attachment (see image below)
- Barbell
- Pull up bar (close and wide grip)
- Dumbbells
- Loads of random plates


Can I get away with a decent routine with this equipment without having to go to a gym? Can't use the bench as a squat rack…

Any help much appreciated!

Seems abit entry level, unsure the max weight they can really hold.

You checked gumtree for somewhere local that has something similar?

With proper metal weights

I'd scrap the bench altogether and go for an adjustable incline/decline workout chair with a decent set of dumbbells (18kg to 32kg).

Do this routine every morning before breakfast and lifting max weight you can manage:

3 x 8 Incline dumbbell chest press (bench at 45 degrees)

No rest

3 x 8 Incline dumbbell chest fly (bench at 45 degrees)

Now you're warmed up,

Rest

3 x 8 Chest-supported dumbbell row (bench at 45 degrees)

Rest

8 x Dumbbell Standing Left Arm Curl (bench inclined 70 degrees)

8 x Dumbbell Standing Right Arm Curl (bench inclined 70 degrees)

^^^Repeat 3x

Rest

3 x 8 Seated tricep press.


When you can do all that in a good time and not needing much rest increase the weight.

Oh and don't skip leg day. Hold dumbbells and do calf raises on a step to get a good incline/decline rep in. Do walking lunges with dumbbells.

Use the pull up bar in the evening only and just do as many wide grip pull ups until failure.

This is a good base to start from. If you're eating enough calories each day, you will put on weight soon enough from the above workout routine.

Replace flys with shoulder presses instead. And do rest after incline chest press.

Why do pull-ups in the evening only? Just do it with the rest of the workout.

Don’t prioritise calf raises, such a shitty non exercise. Do dumbbell Romanian deadlifts and Bulgarian split squats.

Because doing 3 reps of wide grip pull ups slowly and properly till failure is the toughest exercise and if you've got a pull up bar at home, evening is a good time after you've had all your meals and body somewhat recovered from the morning workout. All just my opinion of course but I know I get more reps in if not done with my morning workout.

I've been doing calf raises for years. All depends what you want though. Definitely added size to my ectomorph frame.

Do you have a garden? Check my company for pull up bars if you do - http://www.incitefitness.co.uk/. We've installed bars for a few Fukers.

If you have a pull up bar and dip bars (or gymnastic rings), you'll have all you need.

DM me if you need any help with routines.

Edit: just realised how outdated the gallery is, way more pictures on https://www.instagram.com/incitefitness/

Looks so good but 1500 nuggets to replace a rotary line is a nightmare.

Outdoor equipment also means you’ll only train when it’s nice outside

My tuppence worth is get a coach for a couple months and get all the knowledge you can from them

Online will be cheaper and find one who will do workout plans and tailor accordingly.

Can train your nuts off but without the application of nutrition nothing will happen

aim for about 2g/kg of bodyweight of protein so if you are 70kg then 140kg minimum and as often as you can. If you are a newbie you won't need to worry about many variables apart from training hard and training progressively by adding 1 rep/1kg every time you workout

go for upper lower rest split, pull ups are a great shout though

If you're looking to put on weight, I assume you mean muscle, which means you need to be lifting heavy. Looking at that picture, you're not going to be able to lift heavy enough - and even if you could - it won't be safe.

Where is your gym set up? I have a power rack and barbell in my garage. The spotter/safety bars are literally a lifesaver in case you fail with a lift (which is where you need to be aiming if you want to build muscle)

Concentrate on the main compound moves - deadlift, bench press, squat, and shoulder press.

MiraFit and BodyMax do cheaper power racks/cages and some have lat attachments so you can do pulldowns and pushdowns etc.
