    I'm sure a rounded back deadlifter could dispute that though. Although when I see someone go from neutral to flexion that's just plain wrong it seems.

    Oh nice, I read some of his stuff and he looks like a good coach. How did it go?

    Dumbbell pullovers, are they more of a back or chest exercise?

    Speaking of people lying about their lifts.....today a guy asked to work in with me and a friend on bench press; looks around same size/strength as us.....proceeds to add 2 10kg plates to what we where getting for 5 reps barely. I think 'ok' maybe he's strong, gets into average Joe bench-press position (no arch etc.) again I think 'oh well.'
    Proceeds to unrack and brings the bar down around his neck in an unbalanced motion up in an unbalanced motion, goes for 2nd rep...drops.
    I can tell you me and my friend where sweating a river at this point, he finishes and says 'Been training for the last 3 hours, what else did I expect'; I saw him walk in not 15 mins ago.........
    No idea how scary it was thinking that men willingly put themselves in such dangerous situation just to 'show off.'

    I always see them described as a chest exercise, it does work your serratus I guess, but I definitely feel it in my lats too.

    That's what i'm saying, they are mostly described as a chest building tool, but I feel a lot of it in my lats.

    pretty well. the first eight weeks had a conditioning focus and while it was pretty unpleasant, it was great for me training-wise. after that, i changed focus to maintain a certain level of conditioning and focus on strength. routine-wise, everything builds on itself, so your training evolves over the course of the coaching period; you're also shown the why and the how which really helps you to program your own stuff going forward. his diet plans are actually helpful instead of just prescribing "2500 @ 40/30/30" and everything else is meticulously detailed down the the rest periods. i'd recommend him without hesitation... the conditioning work is a real eye-opener and probably the best thing i've done for my training.

    Is that the one that's like a skull crusher without the elbow bending? That is a 100% lat exercise

    Maybe he was just looking to test his 1RM :lol:

    If I focus on pulling my elbows together by squeezing my pecs I feel it in my chest, if I focus on pushing them down I feel it in my lats. I think it depends on how you do them.

    After using my bodymedia for a bit I've found that the only way calories burned go as low as 2400 is if I do literally nothing all day and tdee calculators estimate my calories burned at 2347 at 5 10, 188 lb, and little to no activity

    I still have a hard time trusting it tho when it says I've burned like 3500, 4000 calories

    I'm mid-230s guy, unfortunately. Luckily I got a nice bump on Step 2.

    I've never heard of an ortho program that screens above 230, though. My situation's a bit different since I'm Army Med, so those programs rank candidates a bit differently than civilian guys.

    Multiple reasons:

    -Grew up on military bases
    -The thought of $250k of debt made me feel sick to my stomach
    -Higher standard of living as a med student and resident
    -MUCH better patient population
    -Good population to practice sports medicine with
    -Always wanted to join military in some aspect
    -Chicks dig the uniform
    -Free shit from Republicans in airports

    350 for 3 months. it sounds like a lot, but in terms of quality versus quantity, there really is no comparison; the amount of value contained in the three months far surpassed the value i got with other trainers on longer terms. there's a consult before everything gets started, and a one week test run to get everything tuned in movement-wise before the time on the books starts. each month there's a new very detailed training block sent to you that's building on your previous month's work. it's a collaborative process and dan takes a lot of time and effort to make sure you understand the why and how behind everything. it's worth mentioning that he only takes a few guys on at a time so he's able to provide a high level of detail and attention to each trainee; i've spent days shooting emails back and forth with him getting very detailed answers back. its certainly being taught how to fish instead of being given a fish, which is something i placed a lot of value on.
