post #36346 of 42303

I saw that as well.

If I'd do something similar, I'd do DB rows or chest supported rows on wednesday and friday too + face pulls wherever I could fit them in. I read the FAQ for the template and Wendler advised against bent over BB rows / Pendlay Rows because the lower back already takes a lot of beating from the high frequency squats.

So is he basically a physical therapist?  I just get the impression that chiropractors generally treat the symptoms if they treat anything, but won't address the underlying cause of whatever your issue is.

 

For music, rinse.fm has some good shit.  Foamo's mixes are good: http://rinse.fm/?s=foamo

Mark Bell is hilarious. His rap on his youtube videos gets me every time. Where did you get his podcast, are you a paying subscriber or something? I was wondering and didn't really check it out.

I have a playlist of hip hop pump up songs before a big lift.

Otherwise I listen to whatever album I've been interested in. Right now it's Action Bronson's Blue Chips 2

I only listen to black metal (Watain and Ofermod mostly) when lifting. perfect mood setter for hating people and doing DL´s.

Hah, my favorite rap of his was something "Make a plan to get tan. There's no joke to being yoked".

Here's the podcast link -

Yea, I suppose he sort of is. If you find a good one they can be a great tool to catch injuries before they happen. Also Gratson and ART works like a charm. I've gone to some pretty shitty chiropractors before though..

Ideas?

Offer her $100. Oh.

cutting is killing my lifts, especially my squat.

my 1rep paused bench is now at 225, squat 245, dl 355

im at 145 now so 5 more to go.

i dunno how charly did it...
post #36355 of 42303
The secret is to be dyel before you even start your cut. I had to slow down progression but strength still climbing slowly despite my cut smile.gif Down to 182 this morning!

I got a 10 week cycle training program and will try to gain 1 lb a week. Will put me at 203. Excited!

I'm eating a clean 3,500 calories on training days and not really sure if I want to add more plain ass meat and vegtables to make up the calories. I might just add a mcdonalds meal to every training day.

That looks great. My current program is pretty similar.

Also doing 4 split with twice a week squats, DL once, paused bench once and then board press on the last day. I've got more assistance lifts in the form of chins, upper back work and some direct hamstrings/low back stuff. Squats and DL is moving up pretty nicely but I'm having problems with the benching. Thinking about benching 2x a week and see how that goes and drop small BB-esque lifts that don't have any direct carryover to the big 3.

Local gym selling Water Rowers and Concept 2 model D for $600 each. Yay or nay? If yay, which would be better?
post #36359 of 42303
That's a decent deal on concept 2 if you want it, can do better watching Craigslist for a while. PM3 or 4? Also depends how much theyve used it. I kind of want one but doubt I'll end up picking one up.
