I can't get over how every subway smells exactly the same. Chipotle crew signing in.

Also Wendy's.

Also Popeyes.

Chipotle and Boston Market are my go to fixes. I've been trying to eat Mcdonalds every training day too though on this bulk

I usually crush Whole Foods prepared foods section or Chipotle when I don't feel like cooking

Chipotle 1/2 brown rice, black beans, fajita veggies, 4x chicken, medium salsa, avocado, lettuce... $15.55 LOL

Chipotle is a go-to but it's a bit too pricey. Subway wins on economics...especially since I have a giant stack of 2 for 1 coupons

Picture the typical low bar squat. Just breaking parallel, sitting back and almost completely vertical shins. Decent forward lean of the torso with the bar placed on his rear delts.

If he's going to drop his ass to the ground, the lower back has to round severely. There's no way you can go ATG with vertical shins, sitting back and with some forward lean (how most people low bar squat).

If your form more looks like Charlys (upright torso), it might be possible, but then you'd have to go with an even wider stance than he does, and his feet are already up by the sides in the power cage. It would be like a chinese split.

And yeah, I believe hamstring receuitment is bigger low bar. The stretch reflex is greatest with vertical chins and just breaking parallel, not deeper, IIRC.

Ok this makes sense.

I only fucks with Chickfila

I think I have a minor pec tear. No chest work for a month crew checking in.

Why you always getting yourself injured homie?

I wish I knew. Maybe too much volume. I usually get over it though. This one is a little worrying though
post #36580 of 49338
What do you guys think is more prone to injury, high volume/low intensity or high intensity/low volume?

Whoops I somehow gained 6 lbs in 4 days.

Complete noob girl in my class asked me if I could show her how to lift. Thinking of starting her on a simple two day split:

Day 1:
Squat
Lunges
Calf Raises
Overhead Press
Planks

Day 2:
Romanian Deadlift
Assisted pullups
Bench Press
Bent-over rows
Bicycle crunches

Will likely do 3x8-12 for sets/reps. Thoughts?
post #36583 of 49338
My suggestion is to bang her

Easily high intensity/low volume i.e., heavy weights/low volume..

If anyone says otherwise.. then their high volume/low intensity routine isn't structured correctly.. which I see ALL the time. Guys tend to have too much ego on high volume routines and use weights that are too heavy.



For example.. I have a 400 lb paused bench.

But during volume phases.. like right now, I'll use about 225 for 5x10 or 275 for 5x5. Could I go heavier? Yes. But on volume routines, that isn't the point.






TL;DR.. high intensity/low volume.

I find it easier to maintain good technique with high intensity/low reps than lower intensity/high reps. Note that I say "reps" and not volume. I don't need to do volume and intensity phases yet so I just keep the volume constant but I have fiddled around with rep ranges.

In my experience, I do better when the volume is laid out over more sets of lower reps than fewer sets of high reps, for the same amount of total volume. For instance, I'd rather do 3 sets of 3 than 2 sets of 5 for the compounds and 5 sets of 6 than 3 sets of 10 for assistance.

Of course this is largely individual, but I prefer it because:
- I train more for strength atm
- I can practice my technique when it's about to actually break down, on a higher % of 1RM
- injury risk is higher when I'm fatigued, which I usually get around the 8-10 rep mark (losing arch, shoulders rolling forward, etc)
- if you're doing heavier weights and lower reps you don't need to get as close to failure for the same training effect

I've had good success lately by focusing on explosive reps and minimizing the grinding.
Also, For upper body I do slightly higher reps than for lower body.

Edit: read Charlys point and I agree. Rephrased my post to make it more clear.
