Thanks brah. Parents took me and the girlfriend out for steak-fueled gains, which i promptly then lost by drinking plenty of delicious whiskey ^_^

Yeah, this. I can see how it can go wrong.

What's even the point of that? Looks like an easy way to become the recipient of a Darwin award.

Aren't benches banned from most Crossfit establishments?

Any ideas on ways to strengthen my core? Realize its the limiting factor in heavy squats.

Weighted Planks/Side Planks
post #37959 of 57259
from what I gathered you want to do bracing shit like GN suggested planks and side planks. Also anti rotations etc.
post #37960 of 57259
Weighted planks, weighted decline situps and side raises for the obliques have worked best for me.

Go heavy. Don't let the ab training turn into endurance. For example, I'm up to 3 plates for 45 sec on planks. For decline situps, fasten your feet / legs and hold the dumbbell or plate behind your head, not on your chest. I like to do them with a straight and fixed torso since that hits your lower back too and teaches you how to brace your core. Side raises I go as heavy as possible for 8-12 reps.

Hanging leg raises and roll outs are good if you can do them correctly.

weighted decline situps are bad for your spine. shearing force and all that.
post #37962 of 57259
Oh, did not know that. Does it still apply if I do them with a braced straight core, sorta like a reverse hyperextension?
post #37963 of 57259
i think just generally. they hurt my back but if you feel fine about them go for it.

I do decline situps against bands, written by Knuckols.

I'm done with 5 weeks of RFL. I lost 16 lbs. and change, so around 3.25 per week. Assuming I will put 5 back on, 10-11 pounds of real weight loss over the course of 5 weeks isn't bad. If I did it again, I would ditch the 5th week. The EC stopped working as an appetite suppressant, the temptation got pretty brutal, and I lost most of the weight in the first 4 weeks anyway. I think I'm around 20% (+/-1) now.
