    paused front squats are the only thing I hate more than pulls which I hate passionately.

    also taught some crossfitters how to snatch (well, at least better, no one learns in an hour), those happy feels when someone actually is thankful for what you say and improves.

    lol, my front squat is like 5kgs heavier than my hang cleans.

    Shows how posterior dominant I am. Rip has a lot to answer for...

    Not really actually, I've always been like that and I think it only matters in regards to oly weightlifting. Certainly my rugby was never effected by having that balance. It's just not a good set-up now that I'm learning the oly stuff.

    Speaking of front squats, I've been doing SSB squats 5 x 10 after my 5/3/1 squats and they have been fucking destroying me. All I've today today is eat junk food / protein and sleep, think i slept like 17 hours because of yesterdays squat session. I'm having a really hard time balancing out recovery, training economy and diet. I never had to worry about this stuff before but now that my weights are heavier if I go for 9+ on my 5+ 5/3/1 day in deadlifts it will affect how much I can get out of my squats on Friday. I guess the answer is to eat more, start adding carbs on off days and when it gets too much only press one lift a week like 5/3/1 for powerlifting suggests.

    Is it worth the money to actually buy a Concept 2 or similar to it for my own? 40 minutes of erg machine is one thing that I actually enjoy at the gym..

    only you can decide if its worth it, just dont pay full retail for gym equipment. craigslist/kijiji is where you capitalize on other people's failed resolutions.

    I've been thinking of seriously dropping the poundage and doing very high rep close stance front squats with three second negatives. My patella has been tender and warm to the touch as I seriously started pushing my 1rm and I am hoping I can keep gains going while giving my ligaments and tendons a bit of a rest.

    Maybe I could scale back starting with triples. i definitely have something weird going on. Both of my quads (the outer sweep portion) have been numb for a while and now my left patella is tender. I noticed that i tend to put most of my weight on my left leg while at work so maybe it is an over use inflammation situation.

    I had pain and tenderness around that area too a few weeks ago, especially during the squat. Didn't want to fuck around with it so I immediately went and got an ART session and Russian EMS on it. Went away after a session thankffully.
