Anybody doing orange theory? Did my first trial class Friday and loved it.

my sister in law does it at the one at like 135th and metcalf or around there. all of them text each other after class if one of the people didn't do good or whatever. or if one skips. they like gossip about that person until the next sessions when the next victim is chosen. she's terrified to ever miss a session or not do good at whatever it is they track. seems to be a good motivator.

It does seem to make you into a cult follower based on people I know who do it regularly.

To be fair, you don't see too many fat cultists (no KSU Kirsty jokes plz).

Question for resident swole cats; I’ve been pretty disciplined the last 4 months on a progressive push/pull/legs routine, but am now starting to plateau on certain core exercises. My question is what is the best way to progress going forward.

Example:

Push day:
Still progressing on bench press, but overhead press and incline bench press have stalled.
Typical exercise order is bench, OHP, incline bench

Today the bench was not open and I didn’t want to wait so I did incline first and finished a weight I’d failed at for at least 3 workouts. I also failed at bench press, but believe I would have completed it had I done bench first.

Best to stick with the intended exercise order or switch up the sequence of exercises to increase more weight in all three?

time to change it up https://blackironbeast.com/5/3/1/calculator

Def. tapped out my linear (novice) progression for bench and pressing exercises. Still have a bit of novice progression to go for squat and dl. Was gonna either do 5/3/1 or something similar, then ran across the Texas Method and figured that would work best for me.
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

Does anyone have the Apple Watch 4, and if so, has it helped in your fitness goals?

It didn't work well with Map My Fitness/Run which was my go-to running tracker.  Also, didn't let me use Spotify without my phone.  That made it fairly worthless to me and I abandoned it to my wife.  If you are willing to use all the Apple apps, it might have more value to you.  I think it helps her remember to walk around at the office every once and a while but is hardly used for fitness.

I already pair my headphones to my phone, which is always with me. So I don’t think that’s a deal breaker for me. I also don’t do much running anymore because of my knees. I also don’t want to use a bunch of apps. So probably won’t get one, thanks for the tips.
