Hauled about 400 kg of rock today. Does that count?
Naaawwww, Waayyy too WIMPY! GGrrrr!

Glad to see you're still kicking around here!

wow you guys know a lot! when I was undergoing a body transformation 2005-2010 I became very interested in all the precision, because I was so determined. some might say obsessed. but i was 50 yrs old & the work I needed to do required that kind of dedication

I think I kept up with this thread for a while but then some of the info lost me. probably because I'm not so focused anymore. but I remember nutrition & nutrition timing was critical to any weight training gains. meaning they go hand in hand

None. Absolutely zero.

Since it's the time of year we spend more time indoors than outdoors, I've been thinking about doing some full body strength training.
Who is we?

I spend the same amount of time outdoors in the winter as I do in the summer. Snowshoe, fatbike and ice fishing. And if I can't do one of those things then I do the ellipitical and spin bike at the gym followed by a nice long session in the sauna.

That used to be the common wisdom, where you had a narrow window of time to eat to see gains.

It turns out that window is more like a barn door. If you eat 3 balanced meals a day, you're good to go.

That depends somewhat on how long after the strength training is this once-a-day meal. 4-5 hours is probably fine. If it's 12 hours, you'll likely see some reductions in muscle gains.

The "anabolic barn door" to take on protein after exercise is believed to be 4-5 hours.

There’s surely a period where your body needs protein to repair and build after a muscle-straining workout, particularly something like a max session in the weight room, a CrossFit WOD (workout of the day), or a high-intensity interval session. But it’s not so much an anabolic window, Schoenfeld says, “it’s an anabolic barn door.” As long as you eat breakfast, lunch, and dinner, it’s almost impossible not to get through. The barn door doesn’t slam shut 45 minutes after exercise. Instead, it stays open for four or five hours, maybe more.

Yes but, dont forget about the bigger increase at 24 hrs.

What I mean by it is to put several # of dead weight in a back pack, suspended mainly by my shoulders, and to walk. It sounds to me that the weighted vest is effectively very similar, though perhaps it does not allow breathing as free as that with a daypack. But I'm just guessing. Can you perhaps share what weighted walking is, how it is done, and what the expected benefits are?

So far my experience is that 10# plus or minus is not very difficult, and we have that Mr. and Mrs. CarbonFiberBoy carry 20# when they go out, have (I think) worked up to it, and have done it for a considerable length of time. I think I'll do another at 10#, then add another book and try to find at what weight I start to feel a bit of strain. If there is a stressing strategy recommended for the vest approach, perhaps I'll imitate it.

I suspect the weighted vest provides the training stress of backpack, except that it allows you to move around in ways that would be difficult/annoying with a backpack.

My wife and I were hiking one day at "The Dish" above Stanford, which is quite steep in parts, when we saw a young, muscular guy running laps while wearing a weighted vest. He lapped us twice. We were astounded.

There is something of a macho, quasi-military, cult around “rucking,” to wit, marching around with a weighted backpack. Having humped some big (and necessary!) loads long distances over difficult terrain myself, I’d rather take a nice walk.

Yeah, I've seen a few of those too, moltly with Army boots and olive T shirts. That's not me. I was never in the Military, never a back packer or over night hiker. I carried a full set of University textbooks in a back pack while commuting to classes and for a while in engineeirng jobs, but have been off those activities for >20 years, as far as the lugging books part goes! I just want to add a littoe boost to walking.

Anybody seen data or studies on how it may produce improvements of any sort?

Also, this guy is using a frame with a rather hefty (and seemingly mis-fit!!) hip attachment. That (back to my Eddie Bauer Store days!) hip belt is supposed to share a large frame load between hips and shoulders, so the hips don't take that full 75# or whatever. Somebedy should tell that guy that he should get a properly fit frame!

Frames did not have "straps," they had "suspensions."

used to tuck my school books in my shirt, when I was bike commuting, as a kid in 7th & 8th grade. I guess back packs were not as common in 1970-71, '72? when I bike commuted to HS 1973-'77 I don't remember carrying anything. don't think we even had water bottle holders back then. just a rat-trap. so maybe I did carry something?

I could see the upper body atrributes working different ways based on the design. Too tight restricts torso xpansion and flexing, while too loose perhaps a not-well-supported load which moves around too much. But I'm just an amateur, guessing.

Anybody heard of any downsides to walking distancce with a lot of spinal load? I certainly don't want to change "too wimpy" to "can't move due to laminar or vertebral injuries!" This is one reason I'm starting with small loads, or so they seem to me!

My take is it looks pretty harmless and maybe good for a basically healthy back, but people with low bone density should be cautious about axial loads. Thoracic vertebrae, in particular, develop compression fractures with minimal, or, seemingly zero, trauma. Old former Cat I buddy of mine now has an ugly kyphosis and chronic discomfort from a couple of crunched ones.

I had similar thoughts to some of those being expressed in this thread about strength training, specifically barbell squats, and I think those concerns also translate into the realm of any sort of spinal loading.

I had gotten quite out of shape one winter many years ago and took my first Alpine ski of the year with a French friend who'd toured with the Dynastar demo team. While doing some particularly strenuous carving on hard snow, I felt and actually heard something give way in my back. I went to my doctor who ordered an MRI. The MRI reader of course missed the soft tissue injuries, but noted my lumbar stenosis, thin discs, and arthritic facets. I got the message that I was an out-of-shape older guy all right. I decided that I had to get serious with the strength training and did so. Though I had the concerns expressed above, I went ahead and experimented on myself doing hard and heavy back work. That was probably 20 years ago.

Today, my back is pretty much bombproof. I have osteopenia, here and there, but not in my spine. My discs haven't gotten any thinner. I had a bout of sciatica a few years ago. Stretching and heavy weight training made it go away and it hasn't been back. My wife and I go in with 40 and 60 lbs. respectively for our annual 10-day backpack. Our backs are fine with it.

Boiled down, I'm saying use it or lose it. If you have low bone density, the thing is to work it. In my 40s, I once sustained a compression fracture in a vertebra. I was carrying a 120 lb. long wet oak 2 X 12 by myself when I felt it go. So don't do that. but heck yes, carry a pack, load up your spine in the gym, work your back muscles as much as you can. They're what hold your spine in column. Start with moderate loads and work up to heavier ones over a period of a couple years. It's slow, but preventative exercise is a really good idea.

It's very, common for cyclists who do a lot of miles to have osteoporotic spines by the time they're 30. My mom essentially died from spinal compression fractures as her spine was badly osteoporotic. For exercise, she did water aerobics. Hard to think of a worse idea, though road cycling is right up there.

If you're worried about spinal bone density, go get a Dexa scan of your back - and femoral neck while you're at it. Then do something about it, whether you have that issue or not. One fall can change your life.

When I go out for local walks, I focus on pushing the pace. I think that's preferable in terms or body development to walking much more slowly with a pack. You want to get good at hiking with a pack, go the the gym with a backpack and hit the Stepmill for an hour. Stairway to hell, I call it. It's only boring until it starts to hurt. That, and fast walking or running without a pack will fix you right up.

I'm landscaping my own garden. I've hauled tonnes of rock last summer and a bit less this summer.

Moved another 100kg or so of rock today.

I also do 20 minutes of daily stretching, primarily of my lower body and back, due to having a cantankerous back. Add in swimming 40 minutes four times a week, indoor trainer 30 minutes daily, and walking.
Good for you! I have a very similar home gym, including the same squat rack. I try to do weight training 3x/week.

I bought pipe at home depot, and used it with 90 connectors to make my own adjustable dipping bar using the squat rack. It's easy to do and I covered the pipe with foam rubber and use gloves. If you want a picture of what I did I can post it.
