Also, foam roll your IT band because the issue might be there.

Do you mean DB shoulder or bench press? I was going to suggest DB shoulder presses, one of my favorite exercises and think they really helped put mass on my shoulders.

And yeah, foam rolling IT band is super importante

Wait, yeah, you obviously do. Reading comprehension fail.

I want to echo the advise on knee sleeves. Getting the knees warm helped me with achy knees. Get some quality ones. OG blue Rehbands or SBD knee sleeves. A lot of people at the local powerlifting gym (myself included) have the SBDs.

Some people take a wider squatting stance and push the knees out more to the sides to reduce the pressure on the knee, making the squat a more hip dominant lift rather than knee dominant.

Went skiing to try to acquire lower body gains but got in a collision and cracked a rib. Tried to go to the gym this morning but it affects all of my lifts - total disaster. I am probably 25% into my cut. Have you guys dealt with a cracked rib before? Should I just stop cutting until it heals?

I assume you have Machoke on your team?

Most aesthetic pokemon, even have tears on his bicep. Pretty sick calf to quad ratio too.

 

 

I think he went a little overboard with the cell tech though as he eventually got another set of arms.

Yeah I cracked a rib one of the first times i used my 13mm inzer lol. I just took a month or 2 off training. Couldn't do anything it hurt so much.


I'm not mirin how machoke doesn't seem to have delts, or does he not have bis? Or have they merged into one? Chest shape is pretty gross, looks like he just hits decline.


Eugh this came up on my news feed. Everything I hate about new lifters

You're not a lion, you're skinny fat. How can you seriously wear a shirt like that to the gym when you're fat. My beta flat mate is asking me if I think he should buy jay cutlers new shaker cup because it has separate compartments for different supps, he also said he's stopped squatting because having 30kg on his back hurts wat.

5 x 395 on deadlift today, I think 405 would be easy but I'm going to take it slow and savor it. Once I'm 405, then I'll start working up to heavy singles. Hopefully 495 by the end of the year.

+1 on the knee sleeves. Knees feel so much better front squatting now (altho it doesn't take long before they start smelling like death). Just recently learned there is a fed (or feds?) that don't even allow sleeves in raw comp tho.

Also how the hell is pokemon "nostalgic"? Aren't kids still playing with that stuff?

Every morning I wake up and one of my arms and shoulders is numb and uncomfortable from sleeping on it. It's how i've always slept, and I never had any issues until I got heavier.

Anyone else get this? I think I read somewhere it's best to sleep on your back, but I find that uncomfortable as fuck.
post #40782 of 57259
I sleep on my back, you get used to it, everything else feels uncomfortable now.
post #40783 of 57259
Yeah, I get the same thing. It happens when I sleep on my stomach. Sometimes I wake up with a totally numb arm that I can't move at all until it wakes up a little bit.

I looked in to it briefly once, but couldn't really find any information. As soon as the feeling comes back it is 100% normal again, so I haven't worried too much about it but I'm curious if anyone else gets this too.
post #40784 of 57259
Yes, that's "normal" I think. Freaked me out the first time it happened smile.gif

I stack my pillows up sorta high so less of my weight is on my arm.
