Are you talking about adaptogens?

I didn't even know that people had figured out how to make HSP's bioavailable... They'd just denature in the stomach if you ate them.

Not a victim, but to be completely fair I wasn't even talking to you or ridethecliche at all.

in other news, had my first trigger point massage yesterday, which she limited to my upper back. The massager said i had the most trigger points of anyone she's ever seen. I feel a combination of terrible and heavenly today.
Have you heard of heat shock proteins? You should look into them.

Ok enough, enough. I'm sorry about being cunty to both you and @ridethecliche. It's just i make my living selling saunas and you are seriously hurting my reputation.

Back on topic of actual lifting speak, ever hear of shank levers? I was playing around with them and they are so fucking awkward and incredibly hard that I want to get good at them just to see what it does to my upper back.

It's lats right? or rhomboids?

Not sure to what degree that bottomed out range of motion contributes to the development there. looking at the vid, I feel like being super strict with pullups and/or seated row might accomplish the same thing, but you'd have to be so strict about it you'd be sacrificing gains in other areas. I can definitely see how it would help with deadlifts.

I want to say it was a lot of lower trap but was very strange and difficult with the bar only. I have strong lats and rhomboids but bar only shank levers floored me. Like my last time I did dumbbell rows I was using the 150s for 7-8 reps with slow negatives but these are a different animal. Idk try it next time you want to fuck around with something new and give me some feedback, if you are interested of course.

will give it a go in a couple of hours.

I like getting weird looks in the gym. Gives me a kick.

Thread resurrected. Thanks for participating boys.

post #56081 of 57477
I've been lifting 4x per week on an upper/lower split for a while, but gonna start doing full body 3x per week starting tonight. Which means I'm going to need a squat rack and a bench in the same workout--on a Monday--and my gym doesn't have nearly enough of either... damn. Oh well, I'll be sure to claim either or both by throwing a towel over the bar while I go do other things.

Jk about that last part.

Taking the arch out of my bench killed it. Damn. Struggling to put 225 up for 3x6 again. No real gains were made frown.gif

Reset and rebuild. Better technique will bring longer term gains anyway.

Better technique?

A big arch is more efficient mechanically and is safer for the shoulder joints by reducing ROM and increasing stability. If you arch correctly, eg. not taking out the whole arch in the low back, its also fully safe.

 

@Cool The Kid

Same for me, cutting now and bench was going down until yesterday when I managed to get a big arch for the first time in a while. It drastically changes the whole lift for me.

 

A downside for me is that I've developed these ugly rashes on the outside of my shoulders due to pinching them back and digging them into the bench, and so when I go through the bench motion the skin gets sort of stretched out.
