post #33931 of 48476
Noticing all kinds of gains since I started doing sissy squats. Quads getting juicy with some nice upper quad detail coming in.

Also tried barbell hack squats for the first time. Feels totally unnatural and awkward.

I just started IA SPBR last Mondy and already messed my shoulder benching lol! I'm weak as a bitch!

I seem to be recovering though. It hurt around my shoulder if I tried lifting my arm up any kind of way.

Does it sound like rotator cuff injury?

Damn! At least it seems to be feeling better. I think I'm going to need to do to rotator cuff exercises man. Fucking up all my noob gains haha.

p.s. yes I had to fix that weird break in my original post. shog[1].gif

When doing IA SPDR, you may want to swap out one of the shoulder press exercises for something like lateral raises or upright rows.

On those days, you're doing enough pressing movements that your shoulder are toast by the time you get to those exercises.

Not all shoulder pains are cuff injuries. Both of mine ended up being nasty trigger points in my upper back

Second week of routine stressing power-versions of the Sn and C&J and I power snatch for 100kg yesterday. I think there's more to come. Really getting big 2nd pull and fast 3rd pull from all these power movements, hopefully it will carry over when I get back to the full versions.

Also, some dudes are like "Why is he gripping so wide for a deadlift" then I throw the damn thing up over my head. Satisfying.

Charly, after watching some bros at my gym crank out some "massive" bench presses, I think I know how to get your bench up. teacha.gif See, you're descending too slowly; you should essentially drop the weight on your sternum while thrusting your pelvis in the air and use the "elastic power" of your ribcage in order to catapult the bar off your chest. You could probably get another 40 pounds on your bench easy that way. foo.gif

Seriously, though; it would be so nice to see people bench like a real man instead of the bullshit of throwing the bar off their chest. Makes me cringe every time.

Like so:

Is that real or a joke?
post #33942 of 48476
Pretty sure real. I dont remember his name but he had a ton of gems up on youtube. I think he took them down, but you can probably find them if you figure out his name.

Thanks for the input but I just switched to the 3 split from a 4 split with 2x upper a week. I switched due to less time and my bench wasn't going anywhere doing it twice a week. I also had some problems with recovery.

 

I want to get my conditioning and bodyweight stuff like chinups, since I really suck at those areas. My workouts are already 1.5 hours long so can't add anything to them. I was looking for input on whether my layout with be too taxing or give me enough rest and recovery.

Well, 2x/wk on everything is working for me. My bench is shit too, but I recently started making huge strides by doing 1 power and 1 hyper session of bench each week. The hyper session is way less taxing and I think is def helping with endurance. Everyone is different though. Best bet would be to dive headfirst into this routine and see how your body responds.
