weighted incline situps put shearing force on your spine and cause (me at least) lower back pain.

Just do weighted planks

Yeah, this is why I do pulldowns for abs. Forcing a lever arm where there usually isn't one isn't all that good for your spine. From my understanding of spine mechanics, you're going to force the lumbo-sacral junction discs to flex more than the others. Those are the ones that herniate most frequently for that reason.

You take a rope attachment for a pulley, kneel with a pad under your knees, flex your abs, and flex at the waist to do the crunch motion. Those fuckers hurt.

One of the reasons I was so russled at my flat mate is because we were talking about lifting and I said I was going to start squatting and deadlifting beltless because my abs are a bit shit. He told me i should just do crunches instead, I think repping out 4 plate deadlifts beltless prob does more.

105kgx1 paused close grip bench, thumbs on the smooth. This was after a bunch of other volume so quite happy. Gym manager was being a cunt to me today, he's always been a dick, but since I've become enhanced he's been ridiculous. Told me I was an idiot today, which is a bit weird because he's a middle aged gym manager and I'm on that investment banking time, but whatever. I think he's also mad I out squat him by about 60-70kg. Luckily being that I have a disability I'm going to complain about him harassing me to the school because fuck him. He ordered a football bar and texas deadlift bar for the gym on the schools money, but doesn't let anyone use them except him and his mates late at night. Ima get me dat texas deadlift bar mang, he's not holding back my total, fucking discrimination.


Oh he called me an idiot because I was lifting during the womens hour, but I'm not letting society choose my gender for me, it's my decision and my life. I was in the supermarket today buying loads of like slimming world 0% fat yoghurt, bananas and rice cakes. Felt like one of those sloots who read jezebel and call themselves new age women, but are actually trying to get shredded for summer because they're lonely and hate themselves.

He got really russled because he bought 5 expensive as fuck olympic weightlifting bars and they all got bent from people doing t bar rows. It's like mate, this is a uni gym, no one gives a fuck about having eleiko plates, it's just a bunch of retards trying to get jacked. One of the bars is basically a buffalo bar now, pretty cool, bent really evenly.

Those eleiko competition bars are so nice, something like $1,300? My old coach would let you use it if you were going for a PR, otherwise you had to use the ghetto $700 eleiko bars :P

Interesting, they don't bother me at all and I'm prone to lower back issues.  I like them because that part of the gym is usually nice and quiet, the cable machines tend to be packed.  I can do planks/rollouts instead though.  I usually alternate the situps with leg raises on a dip bar.

Man, moving after a high rep deadlift day wasn't a great idea.

Cutting on low doses of test is so much easier then natty. Eating significantly higher carbs then I would normally because I'm eating so much less fat because no worry of crashing natty test levels and feeling shit. I really don't mind low fat at all, but on low carb especially preworkout I feel shit. Also with other (I think legal? not sure) compounds you can effectively set your metabolism so you can diet hard as fuck and not worry about having to do refeeds. Feels good man, swear I'm looking leaner everyday whilst still pring.

Lol, I'm the same.

When I got Skyrim I failed an exam and my sleep went from 8 hours to 5 hours a night.

MMOs, not even once.

I believe you should train your core in all planes and directions, both statically and dynamically.

I start all my lifting days (4x a week) with two of the following:

 

Weighted planks with the hands on a medicine ball/balance board - 3x60-90sec

Incline situps - 3-4x10-20

Ab rollouts 3-4x10-15

Pallof press - 3x10-15

Weighted hyperextensions - 3x10

One leg hyperextension held statically (like a unsymmetrical plank for your lower back) 3x10-15 sec

One leg glute bridge - 3x10

Hanging leg raises or knee tucks on swiss ball - 3x10-15
