    The worst thing is if you have a longer foot rest on the bench then you have to balance the whole weight on one leg which is very dangerous. The other thing is to Rack it back you have to drop it down or walk reverse.
    So Find your Feasible weight with which you can walk and do the squat and try it...
    Thank you. That helps. Don't you think it will be better to face the bar while mounting it on shoulders? This way, I think it will be easier to put the bar back on rack because we will be walking forward rather than backwards? Anyway, I haven't tried it so don't know what's best.

    Both of them are good and it depends on the type of Bench You have. Our Bench has enough Room to Pick the Bar in the other way and walking forward. So I find it easy..

    So post my accident (23rd October 2016), I had to take a break of 72days from gymming. Over that because of my pinky still under recovery, my grip has changed a lot.

    And fitness being one of the integral part now of my life, I will be starting fitness and food related vlogs

    Hit the Gym/Jogging track for atleast 30 mins a day. (With a trainer's supervision)
    And cut the CRAP out of your foodCaffeine, Refined Sugar, Alcohol and Processed foods.
    DO NOT eat anything that is not home made.
    This should be enough to get you some momentum on your health goals. There is more information out there that you can refer later on!

    Thats my mistake, I eat too much food, will cut down, also my sleep pattern has to improve. Well my main aim is to lose my paunch, I am considering diets and intermittent fasting , but for now swim n cardio , which is going to eat a lot of my energy.

    My suggestion would be to NOT diet or fast. Eat three proper home cooked meals a day. Do not eat junk. Start exercising that will jumpstart your metabolism. You want to lose weight gradually. Dieting and fad diets make you lose weight too fast and you tend to gain it equally fast! Recommended only for people who are trying to lose weight to look good in their wedding photos

    In one of the initial few pages of this thread R-Series had shared a 15 minute no equipment workout which is really good. I recommend that for boosting metabolism. Since it is only 15 minutes, you easily find time for it even on your most busy days. Check it out.

    Its not easy to be a foodie and diet too . But the best way to have a healthy diet is to take one sure step at a time.

    For a week, make it a point that you will consume lot of water (as per body weight).
    Water will flush out toxins and body starts retaining fat lesser and lesser.

    The following week (keeping the water habit up) make it a point to add salad items like cucumber, onions, beet root, carrot, whatever you like and chose, In Each And Every Meal.
    This increases nutrition and fibre in each meal.

    Next (keeping water and salad habit going on) focus on healthy snacking. Whenever you feel hungry you cant avoid snacking, rather carry some nuts, or fruits (if possible), roasted chana, anything that you can think of which would be easy to carry (so we wont avoid carrying it) and easy to eat on the go, with you.

    Its equally imp to avoid Sugar as it is to avoid oil and fats from our food.

    Food is one side of coin, the other one being exercise.

    protein on whey

    Your workout sessions where you lift, pull and drag, it is important that you have strength to do it all efficiently and proteins can help you achieve that. Optimum Nutrition (ON) has a wide array of Whey based products for bodybuilders and Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein 5Lb is one of them. Formulated using, Whey Isolates of a high BV, this particular supplement has high-grade Hydrowhey Peptides that catalyses protein functioning and its absorption process within the body. Each serving of ON Gold Standard 100% Whey Protein delivers 24 grams of Protein and 5.5G BCAA’s so that you gain muscles at the appropriate places in stipulated time frame. If you have been searching for a Gold Standard Whey Supplement then you might just be lucky to stop over ON’s Gold Standard Whey.
