*edit* Just noticed the cheat version doesn't give you the keep playing option. Lame.

Beat the real game. Very productive use of my free time.

Got that damned counter (4, but it was a 2) stuck on the right wall quite a while before I actually won. Can't believe I managed to salvage the game. I also made a boneheaded move after I had already won. I think I need to leave this game alone for a while.

I was drunk and fell really damn hard in San Francisco. Walked into a bathroom and slipped like 10 feet then busted ass right on my knees, hurt so bad I felt like broke both my knee caps. I stood up and kicked the shit out of the top of the urinal because the bathroom had no signs that it was wet and the dumb fuck who cleaned it didn't mop it down with water it was just soap slick tile. That was nearly the end of my lifting adventure. My knees are still super sore and tender. But that reminds me, I'm throwing these new balances out that's like the 3rd time I either fell or almost fell in them.
Yea, that's what I figured.

I thought I was stronger than you. Are you really squatting 335?

I thought you were squatting like 350x5?

We'll only know when there's a video, won't we.

Probably best not to believe anything unless there's a video but I did post a video of 275 x 8 few weeks ago and did 300 x 4 months ago, so 335 doesn't sound that ridiculous. I also posted a video of 308 at my meet which was in December, so 335 isn't that much to in perspective.

I need to get some vids up of my deadlift. I wish there was more beginners in my gym, I train with people who have been lifting for 5+ years and compare myself to them constantly.

I tried romaleos 2 today, filmed 250 x 5 in both my addidas powerlifts and romaleos. Nike's had a ton of heel slip even though they fit me right on, they are getting returned. I'd like to try the expensive addidas eventually.

Are you calling yourself out?

Weird.

I said in the past, no one should probably believe what I say unless there's a video. As evidenced by me counting my overhead press in my total and a bunch of other stupid mistakes.

Greg told me he was going to cut like crazy and get tanned when he moves to Cali. Better for his business.

are good mornings supposed to be really hard? I can't do SLDL's because of my shoulder so i tried GMing 135 and it felt really awkward on my lower back.
post #41289 of 57302
To do them right, yea. I do them with a SSB and 115lbs gets me pretty sore in the abs.

They're not that hard compared to squats and deadlifts, and they definitely shouldn't hurt your lower back. U using a wide strange n slightly bent knees brah? I prefer low bar wide stance for good mornings.

i'll try going wider. I was trying not to bend the knees that much either but i guess that's inevitable. How far down are you supposed to go? I might be trying too much to do bootleg Stiff Legged Deadlifts

I go as low as I can while keeping my lower back neutral. Usually until my hamstrings feel really tight.

You should get the AdiPowers. I can't think of a single flaw on them.

Wait till June when the white colorway drops.

No, its not supposed to be very hard. Way more natural movement than squats for me.

If it feels awkward you're probably going too low or you have really lousy lower back and hip mobility. 

 

My tip for it us to not arch hard unless you need that as a cue to get a flat back. You don't want lower back hyperextension. Keep the back as straight as you can.

Don't let the knees travel forward at all.

Initiate the movement by shooting your hips way back. I never think that my shoulder should be going down or that I should lean forward. Thats just what happens when the hips go back.

When you've got the hips as far back as you can without the lower back rounding, you should feel an intense stretch on the hamstrings. If you don't your going too deep and knees are prob going forward.

Flex your glutes super hard in the bottom position and finish the lift by pushing the glutes forward. Squeeze them at the lockout too.

 

Wtf Colsnap @ feeling good mornings in the abs. Must be because of the SSB.

Cool. I'm waiting for my shoulder to heal but i figure why not kill the fuck out of my legs. I've been running a lot but I fucked up my foot so I want to rest it.
