edit again: which is fucking with my extensor digiti minimi. and extensor carpi ulnaris. and every other fucking thing in there. i'd love to open my arm up to see how messed up shit is in there.

serious question, maybe tk you can answer this because ***youre a doctor***. does it make any sense that the pain i feel when performing a zottman curl motion is vastly reduced if i'm moving at a much slower tempo? is that a thing?

So I generally refrain from giving medical advice outside of work but I'll answer this somewhat vaguely. Any time you change the velocity of a movement it changes the biomechanics of that movement. Different muscle groups are utilized to different extents and stressors can be distributed differently. The movement arc is likely changed as well.

I don't think people should get caught up in how long they've been lifting in regards to your total / aesthetics atm, etc. The long term perspective is more important. I mean, its not always best to progress as fast as you can. There's an injury-risk trade off that comes with it. Lifting is a marathon; the better lifter is in most cases the most consistent one that has managed to stay injury free and kept up with some form of progression the whole time. That said, most people can work out more than they think and there's time where you should push very hard. I just don't think its wise to go balls to the walls all the time, as some do. 

I'm not saying this towards anyone in theis thread, but when people say "I have only been lifting for x years", you never know where they start counting. Is it when they picked up their first weight, is it when they got serious, or is it when they started to know what they were doing? I have been lifting in some form for prob 5 years, but didn't know anything about how to train smart until 1-2 years ago, and I've only been training for powerlifting specifically for 4 months.

This is why you shouldn't be giving advice.

I guess you refer to that I only been lifting smart for 1-2 years?

 

I'm aware I've made some questionable advice in the past (haven't most people?). You made a post a while back where you said you also went through a phase early on where you thought you had the answers (nothing against you - just pointing out its a phase many people go through). I read a lot and consider myself pretty well-versed in the theoretical aspects of strength training, while I am lacking experience. Almost all advice I give is heavily backed up by other influential people/lifters. So the advice I give is not solely coming from me. Either way, I think I'm more humble now and I'm pretty confident in my ability about where I can contribute and when I should not. You can agree or disagree with that and thats fine with me. I can't really say much more than that.

You've been powerlifting for four months and have a coach programming for you. A lot of the advice you give is based on programs people are saying are superior because they make money if people buy their book or hire them. I have been reading about this shit for years. I have a fo heated copy of super training in my room and the best advice I have heard and will ever give is you need to experiment to find what works for you, not blanket system advice regurgitated from an article.

Yeah, thats true and your absolutely right about it.

Some methods are however backed up with solid studies and science and I think those are the ones that are valuable (you have to check the validity and reliability of the studies though). Also, a certain method can just be one way, not the only way. Its like "you can try this" and then determine if it works for you or not. Otherwise, I fully agree with you.

True story. I've been getting better results when saying fuck it, I'll try different stuff from time to time and see if it helps. V-row machine for high reps, cable work, some of the stuff that usually people shrugs off because its not coming from starting strenght. Never been hapier with my progress icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

A very important lesson of maturity is realizing when you're not qualified to give advice or handle a certain situation and being honest about it.

With 4 months I meant when I started lifting at a PL gym and changing my training towards that. But yes, you did push me in that direction back in november smile.gif
