So it turns out that in the latest study, a heel-strike is actually more efficient for running. Meaning that the vibram-style shoes aren't doing anything healthy for you.

I disagree.

They look stupid.

Girls will think you're a loser and you'll have less a chance to sleep with them.

Less sexual activity decreases likelihood of contracting an STD.

I do NOT doubt that. Some judges make you pause unreasonably long. But a 4 second pause is a huge exaggeration.

Go get watch competition bench videos with a timer in hand.. you'll see that even a full 2 second pause is extremely rare.. even in the USAPL/IPF.

I'd say a fair pause command is around 0.5-1 seconds. 1-1.5 is a bit excessive but whatever. 1.5-2 seconds is just unreasonable.

Anything over 2 seconds though.. I've never seen a pause command last that long.. ever.



You might just be hearing about the pause commands from people that have had him as the head judge on their bench. Time slows down when that bar is on your chest/belly. I know ever time I have a comp bench, the press commands seem like foreverrr to come out but when I got back to my recordings, I realize that they were normal ass pause/press commands.

I think the benefits are usually supposed to be lack of injury, not efficiency.  Still nice to see someone actually studying it.

As i posted on Eason's wall:

It really all depends on your biomechanics and how you're more or less prone to injury.

I like forefoot striking because i have more problems with my knees than i do my ankles. Then again i use padding and not those toe shoes.

Sumo Deadlift:

My hips tend to tuck under when the weight is heavy and I get fatigued. On the work sets, the first two reps are usually fine but then the butt will tuck under and by the last rep my upper and middle back might round too. I have no problem pulling the weight (or 20-30 pounds more) with some rounding, but I really struggle with a straight back and shoulder over (not in front) of the bar. I've noticed my ass tends to rise before the chest as well when I initiate the pull.

 

 

I've tried to take the weights down and building it up again with better form, but I start to round again at the same weights (which is about 20 pounds from my 5RM). It's not a mobility issue since I can back squat to parallel and front squat ATG with good form. My conventional DL is fine as well with no back rounding at all. Any suggestions for correcting it?

I'm amazed I was able to float a paper idea about simulating the results of two weightclasses in the upcoming WWC using probit modeling and stochastic processes. I expect my presentation to be attended by maybe 1 person max

Haha my body is fuckin' thrashed today. Feels good to be this sore though. It's been awhile since I've had to hobble around. My appetite and capacity for food is finally also start to get back where it was. Hopefully, I can awake from this dreamer bulk massive as fuck.

EDIT:

I got a few co-workers doing "cleanses"... I swear it's like the ultimate excuse to starve yourself. Starve yourself without feeling the guilt because it's a "cleanse"

Please provide some deets on your model.

Adding to list of exercises that suck donkey cock: breathing paused front squats. It feels like with every breath, the weight increases another 10kg. By the time I count 5-mississippi out loud it seems like I'm doing a 1RM.

I'd attend. Where is this thing happening? I wonder if I can get my Grad Student Association to pay for it .....

Plate raises might be my new favorite accessory exercise.

One of the strongest people ever swears by that lift, breathing paused back squats.
