Your collarbone. With a clean grip your chest delts create a shelf.

It's gross to leave a pan with the oil and stuck food on the stove right? Like, you can't save and re-use that oil that's been sitting out all night right? My roommate believes that it's fine and leaves a fish-and-oil-covered pan on the stovetop and I can't find a google source for why that's disgusting because it's so preposterous to begin with.

All communal property should be clean and ready to use by all parties.

i mean i don't really give a shit about the dirtiness because i'm guilty of not being super fast at cleaning, but at the very worst I leave it in the sink and he's already banned from using my cast iron skillet. i'm more concerned with the mistaken belief that reusing that shit is ok.

Does he think he's seasoning it or something?

The food is questionable, but the oil will be ok... this is what you're doing with a seasoned cast iron pan.  When you reheat the pan it kills whatever's on there.

I don't think my damn gym has a hack squat machine. I really like those though. I was doing goblet squats for a bit too.

Maybe a little bit. I'd have to start off super light and see how they feel. I used to love doing 1 arm kb jerks and stuff. I'm not sure that the 'stomp' required is going to be all that great.

 

And oh woah. I just realized that this was you. Sup!

Takes a bit to get used to and your shoulders hurt for a bit afterwards, but if you ramp up the weight right you'll settle right in. I found it wasn't that uncomfortable.

Sweet. My arm was in a sling for awhile when I hurt my A/C joint a few weeks ago, that's what I did. Just start low, smolov on SSB gets heavy real fast.

I'm rehabbing from 2x back surgeries and trying to figure out how to best tailor a 3-4x a week routine for myself to put on some muscle again without compromising my health.


Pre-op, some of my lifts were:

Deads: 315, FS: 205, OHP: 135, DB rows with 120's, DB press: 85ish? Yada yada yada.

Not remarkable, by any means, but not bad for someone weighing like 165ish lbs.

 

I ended up here after reading conceptionist's post talking about pre-loading the core prior to workouts. That's interesting for me since it would force me to reduce weights used in lifts and build much more core strength which is important now.

My biggest concern is not being able to add leg mass since I'm not sure I can squat or deadlift. Not sure it's worth the risk to try it till I have a much more solid foundation.


Right now, leg workouts include BB Lunges, DB Step ups, some single leg leg press machines, and calf raises. Hoping to pick up some more variety into things. Anyone have any exercise suggestions?

 

Like you said I wouldn't start with regular back squats and dealifts until you feel ready, but you could try some less back intensive versions of the lifts in the meantime.

 

You could try light front squats and zerchers. Both of those will really learn you how to stabilize the core in a squatting movement.

 

For deadlifts you could start off with trap bar deadlifts if you have access to one of those bars. Light sumo deadlifts from blocks (the weights are elevated on the blocks, not you) could maybe also work. A sumo deadlift is less harsh on the back than a conventional deadlift and with the weights elevated, you won't have to bend as much forward

Black and white makes everything better




Why with a 5 plate deadlift do I not have swole spinal erectors?

Is there a cheap 2.5-3" 13MM belt?

One of the certified broscientrainers at my gym was telling me that even though I've maintained/gained strength on mycut, I could still be losing muscle mass. Is this true?
post #41969 of 57449
^ He's probably just referring to the fact that there is not a direct relationship between strength and muscle mass. That said, if you're maintaining/gaining strength on a cut, that's usually a good indication that you're keeping most--if not all--of your lbm. So I wouldn't lose any sleep over what brotrainer told you. smile.gif

When you lose weight, some of it is unavoidably lbm; how much it is depends on training, calorie intake, etc. At least how I understand it anywyas
