Apparently it is designed for patellafemoral pain syndrome which is what I have. Wondering if I need to bite the bullet on something this expensive or if a rehband knee support would kind of do the same thing.

I feel like a brace is a bandage for a problem. If you can get it fixed, get it fixed.

Then again I just bought wrist straps. But my dainty wrists are less serious than patellafemoral pain syndrome.

Oh my fucking god you guys. So I made jarude's protein sludge and tried freezing it and it turned out exactly like peanut butter ice cream.



Turned out a little too hard so next time I think I'm going to add more cool whip which is what I think softens it when it's frozen (could use whole milk too I suppose if you don't care about cals). Current recipe would make some bomb ass puddin pops

Axelman, I have a spare rehband open patella knee sleeve in size L that I'd let go for peanuts/shipping since I have no use for it

BTW I'm pretty sure this is just like a homemade version of that Arctic Zero shit, just freezing milk and whey and adding chemicals (cool whip in this case) to keep it at an ice-cream like texture. This version is way fucking cheaper than that shit though haha.

You can get into powerlifting just by training it. Joining a powerlifting friendly gym or getting a coach would be a huge plus.

But you can't call yourself a powerlifter til you've competed smile.gif

It's as simple as just testing one out. My first one, I just did a push-pull and went and had a blast. Conservative numbers and aimed just to go 6 for 6.

I hear ya, it seems pretty exciting, and something I feel I could really dedicate myself too. Plus, i'm only 21 and feel like I could make solid progress in the coming years.

You're relatively close by in Philly, and I feel like the PL community is kind of tight knit, do you know of any good gyms to check out in NY?

Once you get bit by the iron bug, you're stuck for life hah.

The PL community is tight knit but very welcoming. Every single powerlifter I've met and talked to has been more than happy to help and share. I've had random PL'ers just come up to me at meets and ask if I need help wrapping my knees or if I'm out of ammonia caps. Some of us look unpleasant, but for the most part, we're a friendly bunch.

Unfortunately there aren't any powerlifting dedicated gyms in the city because of the space.. but right outside the city in Hoboken, my bud Jason Manenkoff owns Iron Arena. It's small but the equipment is awesome. Texas squat bars, deadlift bars, power bars, eleiko oly bars, bumper plates, 2 power cages, dl platform, competition spec bench, astroturf for pushing the prowler, and a GHR.

The few times I have worked out in ny, I just went to Hoboken to train.. Went to Steel Gym in Chelsea twice. They have one power cage which is nice but not much space to do anything else like deadlift. And it's packed and hot in there.

Damn, Hoboken is a ways out, it would be different if I had a car but I don't. Unfortunate since that seems exactly like what I need.

I actually live in Brooklyn, not the city. I'll peruse some forums and see if I can find anything near here.

And for what it's worth, I go to New York Sports Club now, if any gym isn't conducive to powerlifting it would be that one. Overheard one of the trainers complaining to another that "all these kids need to stop coming here to deadlift." : |

That's fucked up.

Just find any gym that has a squat rack and will let you deadlift, and you'll be fine.

I think I saw a striated vein in my forearm today after benches. Dunno, might have just been seeing hings.

latest dom mazetti video. So many feels man, literally relate to all his videos so much.

I'm fairly sure your veins don't get multiple narrow ridges going along the outside of them that are so large you can seem them through your skin, that would probably be fairly dangerous.

1 scoop whey + 1 tbsp pb + ~3-4 tbsp cool whip + splash of milk to desired texture

I want to try with pb2, could be a great cutting snack.

Last squat until the meet.

Two euphoric weeks of training. Now to just make weigh ins and leave everything on the platform in a week.
