Giant Sets//Cardio
« on: October 23, 2009, 09:31:49 PM »
I love doing tri-sets and giant sets. I'm not into the whole power thing anymore. I wonder how much calories one burns doing giant sets versus cardio?

disturbia, have you ever been on celexa (citalopram)?

if so what were if any the side effect?

ON TOPIC
i love doing giant sets for legs, i found out a long time ago that my legs responded better to reps instead of weight.

i still go heavy, but i never drop below 15 reps for legs.

i don't know how many calories you could burn, but i am sure it would be beneficial.

no i have been on paxil//epival for 12 or 13 years now---never changed meds, just dosages

I've only heard positive things about celexa though,...minimal side effects compared to something like mine

I've done squats for a cardio effect.  I used a 25lb dumbell held at my chest and do 15 sets of 20 reps.  1 minute rest in between.  Try it Disturbia.  Seriously man. It will fuck you up.  Gotta be good form though.  Just a tad below parallel.

i have been sick for the last 3 weeks, so i went to the Dr, and she switched me from lexapro to celexa temporarely. i am on this stuff to help aid my sleep medicines.......insomnia is fun >:(

i am trying to determin if the stomach discomfort i am having is from the celexa or the antibiotics she gave me.

Thank, God ... but I've never had a prescription in my lifetime except for some jungle rash we all seemed to get overseas.

Aspirin always seems to work well for me.

Got friends who seem to take pills for every ailment imaginable. Even pills to take care of the side affects of other pills. And more pills to handle those.

A couple got hooked on pain pills big time and died way too young. One by suicide.

I hope you all got it under control.
