Turns out that lower back pain was my SI joint all out of alignment (saw a sports med doc). No squats or deads and a couple months of PT :/

Asked how much I was doing, told him 335, dude just said he'd come back after I was done because squats were his "weak spot". No idea, felt weird.

 

Haha, he was probably ashamed and couldn't be bothered with unloading a couple of plates between every set.

Same thing has happened to me a couple of times DLing, although I'm basically still at the "novice" level according to this: http://www.exrx.net/Testing/WeightLifting/DeadliftStandards.html :embar:

Couple months of PT for an SI joint out of alignment? You might want to get a second opinion. Some doctors are shady and just want to charge shit to the insurance companies.

I had my SI joint out of alignment a couple times (very common if you lift heavy often). I went to my chiro, he popped it back into place and I was deadlifting heavy the next day.

He said 4-6 weeks.  I'm planning to go to at least one PT session and see what he says, then see if I can do it on my own, so I'll def keep that in mind.  Doctor is trustworthy though it's a really good clinic.

Yeah, that's totally what happened. Never happened to me before, though. Martin gives these numbers for levels of "advancement":
Quote:
Strength Goals: Highly Advanced

Under the exact same conditions, all of the following goals should be reached within ten years. Alternatively, 3 out of 4 should be reached, and one should be "Elite":

Bench press: body weight x 1.5, or x 1.8 (elite)

Chin-ups or pull-ups: body weight x 1.5 or 15 reps with body weight, or x 1.8 / 20 reps (elite)

Squat: body weight x 2, or x 2.4 (elite)

Deadlift: body weight x 2.5, or x 3 (elite)

"Elite" denotes one lift that is often ahead of the others. For example, people who are natural pullers (long arms) may very well hit a 3 x body weight deadlift before a 1.5 x body weight bench, and vice versa for the presser (short arms, stocky and barrel-chested) benching 1.8 x body weight but not being able to pull 2.5 x body weight in the deadlift.

I don't know how I feel about them, they're not that heavy.

according to the chart i'm at an advanced level why you meatheads gotta ruin it for me censored.gif

but yes elite numbers seems a bit low

Really interesting stuff about how breathing affects mobility.

post #35231 of 57256
Oh yay elite pull ups woo. To be fair the exrx elite levels are not meant to be the same as elite powerlifting lifts. Their definition is
"Refers specifically to athletes competing in strength sports. Less than 1% of the weight training population will attain this level."

Less then 1% of 198lb guys will ever squat 505


Uni started again, forgot all my calculus over summer, needed to relearn integration by substitution and all the weird trigonometry identities. First class is on laplace transformations, such a bad feel.

Same here. There's a big link between breath and strength/mobility. It's just the boringest fuckin thing to work on ever. I have a decent breathing pattern, at least I've been told by therapists but I've seen some people that have jacked up patterns. Am I weird that while standing in grocery lines I inspect people's posture and breathing patterns? haha

haven't had the pleasure of working with these that much due to my field but they do provide some great feels.

exrx standards are pretty weird. In my vocabulary what 'elite' stands for is top 10-15 nationally.

LaPlace transformations are fucking awesome I don't know why you're hating. Calc is like the easiest math to learn too do you even math?
post #35235 of 57256
I don't remember any math. Good thing it's useless in real life.
