Also db stepups are hard. Maybe being forced into solely unilateral leg work isn't such a curse after all.
Random health and exercise thoughts - Page 3289
The knees tend to naturally go further over the foot with high bar. It shouldn't be a worry, although some think it can be damaging if you're not used to the knees tracking far forward.
I do high bar but stand pretty wide (just outside shoulder width) and still sit back a decent amount. The High-bar vs low-bar debate and their corresponding knee movements, back angle, hip involvement, etc, is not at all as black and white as some "experts" would like you to think. Just squat in a way that feels good and works long term.
Thanks! Reason I asked was that I could feel my old "low bar" pattern of movement taking over a bit, especially at slightly heavier weights (100kg+) and I really want to avoid the whole good morning -esque squat technique.
That and I was doing 8 reps at 85. I can get 10 with 70lb db's for seated. Also, yeah it felt sketchy.
Super pick your battles kinda thing.
Stats book you recommended me is quite good. Didn't realise you could do linear regression with a hierarchal model, much more elegant then dummy variables.
They're very different movements I think, db ohp has never increased my standing barbell press but barbell increases my db ohp. My barbell ohp used to be significantly lower, but they've just about evened out now. I would say standing barbell is the better movement though.
overhead press isn't a powerlift?
But it apparently has a strong carry over to bench and teaches a lot of the skills that are needed for other lifts (brace the core, squeeze glutes, upper back tightness, pack the neck etc). Every PLer I know except for one of them uses the OHP as one of their core bench accessory lifts.
All I really meant was I think there are better ways to hit shoulders if your goal is hypertrophy, if that's not your primary goal then I can see a strong argument for its use.
PS Trader Joe's had some thin sliced adobo marinated chicken for $2/lb and I bought all 11lbs they had. I cooked 5lbs yesterday, eating some now and it's pretty fucking delicious, I usually have to add a ton of stuff to make this kind of thing taste good. I wish there were more than 1 TJ's in my area so I could go and buy out all the other stores.
