FASR? Size? Link?

The Frequency Agile Solar Radiotelescope (FASR) is an ultra-wideband radio array designed to image the Sun and its atmosphere over a frequency range of 50 MHz to more than 20 GHz, corresponding to wavelengths of <1.5 cm to 6 m. Radio emission over this frequency range originates from the middle-chromosphere to the outer corona. FASR will therefore image the Sun's atmosphere in 3D, and it will do so at least once overy second. This innovative approach - dynamic, broadband, imaging spectroscopy at radio wavelengths - enables unique measurements of coronal magnetic fields, magnetic energy release, particle acceleration and transport, plasma heating, shock formation, and drivers of space weather.

I agree with the other guys.

For HB squats, you want to sit straight down in between your ankles. This keeps your torso upright and lets the quads do the work. It should look more like a front squat. You're sitting back too much now, which can be the cause for the upper and lower back rounding.

Work on hip and groin mobility and ankle dorsiflexion. Open up the hips by pushing the knees out to the sides and loosen up the achilles and the front where your foot connects to the leg.

The frog stretch is good for the groin. Check DeFrancos "Limber 11" 10 mins in.

California Strength has a video called "lower body flexibility for weightlifting".

Check those out and buy proper squat shoes. You def want them for HB squats.

i sadly think erryday squarts will need to be put on hiatus for the time being. i'm making some progress with the forearm/elbow, but i want to see if the frequency is making things suck. im not exactly sure how to go forward from this point, as this has surprisingly limited a lot of stuff i can do. i really think that squatting every day done properly can yield great results but i think i've been a little bull-headed up until this point with regards to what i should and should not be doing with forearm/elbow issues. im legit getting worried about this injury since the nerves are getting involved too and the base of my thumb is starting to atrophy (srs). i *might* be able to get away with static holds so my deadlift wont be totally fucked but anything involving grip and my arm moving in any direction usually sucks. the plus side is that i'll be able to work in more pulling variations and maybe bro out on some machines. this might be a good time to drop a little weight too.

totally unrelated, but today was e-lifter day at the gym. 4 squat racks in a row; dude to my left was doing the cali strength lower body flexibility warmup in his adipowers. dude to my right had his rehbands on and was doing glute bridges and 400# box squats after a 20 minute band mobility warmup. next rack past that was a guy atg squatting in chucks and the one cage was occupied by a couple dudes paused benching and supersetting in banded face pulls. was pretty cool nod[1].gif

jarude, why don't you go to doctor? That actually sounds pretty serious.

Pulled 295 easy today aside from the grip thing, so my major problem was definitely getting my ass too low. Seems like my supine hand on the alternate grip is failing first, which causes it to slip on my pronated hand, so by the time I'm done with the set (or before), it's by my fingertips on both hands. I don't know if I'm grabbing the bar too wide, but I'm right on the edge of the knurling so I can't even go in any further.

Fuck it, I'm just gonna use straps next time. Straps and chalk.

It might make me uncool but I like Omar Isuf. I started watching him a few weeks ago and I like his positivity, humour, and energy

Not trying to be a dick here, but do you consider a 295 pullx1 something impressive?

No I consider it a big improvement on being unable to pull two reps even of 295 two weeks ago because of my form issue, and a good sign that my deadlift will increase very fast with straps which will get me around whatever is causing my grip problem.

Don't be a dick

Don't be a dick

I only ask because I never see people deadlifting in real life, and the internet has completely skewed my perception on deadlifts. I did my working sets (3x5) with 295 last week and was pretty proud of myself, but felt I should not be because everyone on the web lifts 400 easily.

I prefaced my question with "not trying to be a dick" so yeah...

Depends on what you're squatting, I'd say. I don't think anything under 400 is impressive.

yeah, was planning on it. my family doctor is a spectacularly useless fucker so i'll have to get to a walk-in clinic at some point this week.

just a weird injury. pressing causes numbness during, but feels great the day after. straps + pulling feels good during, but pain the next day. static grip work is hit or miss, whereas anything involving a grip + pulling action results in agony the next day. straight arm pulldowns? no problem. lateral/front raises? forget about it.

Maybe you tore something in your forearm?

I am one of 4 people that I know of at my gym that can pull 400+.

Most dudes don't do it at all. 75% of those who do never go above 275. The other 24% don't go above 365.
