No way around it really.

Want to know a secret? Every time I get stronger and bigger, my training sessions grew longer due to more movements, sets, reps, and rest periods. Now I'm not saying this is linear but I used to have sessions that lasted 45 minutes to an hour. Now, it's about 1.5-2 hours each.

Basically, I'm hyperextending out of the whole when squatting. Glutes and hips rise faster than shoulders. I have problems keeping my core tight and staying upright on the descent and ascent.
I need to get a stronger abs, upper and lower back. I'm doing Iron addicts Simple Power Based Routine. How do I fit more of those areas in that routine without extending the workouts? Really don't want to drop any work on posterior chain or arms, as those need to get stronger. Shall I just add another set?
I'm sick of having to deload and work on form as soon as I seem to get anywhere. Makes me question if I've even gotten stronger during this bulk. Maybe it's all fat. Tempted to hire ex and let him guide me, but my lifts are so low it feels dumb.

 

Hyper-extension of the lumbar during squats can be caused by any number of things. Try some air squats. If it happens with even unweighted, then it's probably compensation for a mobility problem somewhere else - either in the hips or in the thoracic. If the hyperextension only happens at higher weights, then it's more likely a strength issue caused by a week core. The front of your core (abs) are your anti-extension muscles, so adding in anti-extension exercises should help - plank holds, hollow holds, hollow rocks, GHD sit-ups.

I was bench pressing yesterday and I accidentally rotated my shoulder causing a weird motion, now it hurts a little.

It feels like I slept on it, would it be a bad idea to work out today? I will be doing pushing exercises.

Has this happened to anyone else?

I find working out with music distracting, am I alone?

Hard to say exactly what has happened to your shoulder, but it would be silly to do more pressing exercises today if it's still bothering you. I'd do some shoulder mobility/warm-up type work, and then leave it alone and do something else.

Yeah I know, just thought maybe someone would convince me it was okay to work out. Lol

I'm not even sure how to describe what happened, but it was weird. I has a tingling pain.

It sounds like one of the tendons or ligaments in your shoulder rolled over the nerve. Does the tingling extend to your hand? This is the sort of thing that usually sorts itself out. I'd roll through that arm and shoulder and do some mobility work.

I've done that that before, although I felt more pain when it happened.  I'm not entirely sure what I did to it (i suspect a little tear in the rotator cuff) but I wasn't able to do bench or any other chest exercises for about 3 months.  I'd recommend laying off chest work for a few weeks and do the exercises mentioned here to get your shoulder back to normal: http://www.criticalbench.com/bench-press-blowout.htm

It doesn't extend to my hand, only in the shoulder.

Thanks man!

I hope I don't have to sit out for three months though. frown.gif I've lost enough mass already.

You posted something about buying jean sweat pants right?

I'd stay away, they look ugly. Not that you were asking for my opinion but I think you can find something more stylish.

Yea, haha it was more of a joke. Seriously tho one day if we all keep gaining we will be wearing sweatpants. One of the dudes I train with is 5'7 300lbs and exclusively wears sweatpants. I'm looking at some 1937 Levi Repros.

Had my first squat workout in the Reebok Crossfit Olys yesterday. I felt they made a big difference in stability coming out of the hole on my worksets.
I also felt the added stability during (overhead) presses, but not enough to make or break a rep.

If you don't want to spend a lot for the CNCed ones, these are cheap: http://www.roguefitness.com/black-steel-plates.php
I have the 1.25lb ones. They were surprisingly accurate.

Just to clarify, when everyone talks about shoulders rotating they're joking, right?

Typed from internally rotated shoulders.
