    I've noticed along the way some guys who will go through a lifting session and at the end I'll see them on the treadmill. Instead of jogging, they'll be playing on their phone, going for a walk.

    I was wondering what I'm missing? Why aren't they jogging? Are they just tired? Or is walking after lifting some lazy bro science technique of burning some calories while maintaining as much muscle as possible?

    You know walking is still healthy for you, right?

    Haha

    Know what's funny

    This dude thinks he's making fun of these lazy guys walking

    This dude is actually revealing his workouts are so non impact, he just sits on his ass after and he's good to go.

    When you start really training, you'll educate yourself on recovery, like those lazy guys walking did.

    If they are bodybuilders on gear, the walking is a necessity to lower their blood pressure and LDL. I suppose they could jog instead, but that's pretty painful when you're carrying 20+ lbs of lean body mass above your natural limit.

    The thing I never understood is why so many people run on treadmills when the weather is nice outside. How can you prefer it to the real thing?

    Why do some people jog instead of sprint? Are they just tired or lazy?

    People have different goals and their training should reflect that.

    https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/25546450/

    This paper suggests that lifting and doing more intense cardio back to back produces less improvements/poorer performance in both activities compared to spacing them out and allowing for more recovery between them. Walking on a treadmill is pretty low intensity though so I doubt it's going to do much in terms of impacting recovery. However, it's still great for your circulation and may even aid in recovery.

    It's a recovery modality you learn about on day one. You guys sound fat.

    Benching 2 plates is a hard workout. You earned it, bro.

    All time PR is 202.5/446 in a meet.

    I did 315x10 and 335x8 last week. I bench 3-4x/week, so I never know what I’m going to get depending on fatigue levels. Could be in PR territory soon.

    Haha?

    I work out at home now, but when I worked out at gyms I would walk on the treadmill a little bit after a workout because I was already in the gym and it was the only time I did cardio. 20 minutes of low intensity walking. Cardio wasn't overly important to me, but I figured it had some benefit.

    I'm too dead ass tired after squatting, benching, or deadlifting heavy to go for a jog.

    Getting big time sub 3-plate bench energy from you, Terry.

    There are no jokes when it comes to benching.

    I think bench press is kinda silly to be honest

    Sounds like something someone who is terrible at benching would say.

    Let me guess, you’re always “bouncing back from a shoulder injury” and always “getting back into it”? You get up off the bench after a tough set of 5 with 135 lbs and rub your shoulder with a pained look on your face so people think you’re only using that little weight because of an injury?
