    Thanks for the suggestions, guys. Anything in particular for abductors or will some machine vagina stretches after squats suffice? Don't have bands at my disposal but am not opposed to picking some up.

    looks like an OLer to me.

    dude has great potential to be a serious lifter. if those were max doubles, guesstimating (at minimum something like)145+187-ish would've put him in the top 10 in -85 at the EWC a few wks back.

    I'm a big fan of seated band abductions.

    Here's Chris explaining them..

    ^ Looks good. I always feel sore in the abductors after squats.

    I think I broke my hand, how to train around this? Leg extensions and curls until it heals? Attempt the no hands squat? Could try bring up my left arm, right hand is the fucked one.

    Just train your left side. Single leg squats, bicep curls, db snatch, db bench, they can all be done unilaterally. :teach:

    Ran 30 mins today. I sweat a lot but it felt good. Going to try and make it a daily routine.

    The abductor work may help some, but you'll get the most benefit out of just squatting properly. Two things to try.

    Lower the weight until you can squat without your knee caving in, and just commit to getting in some volume with proper form. This should bring along any weak stabilizer muscles that are getting you in trouble. It takes some discipline, but I promise that nothing good comes out of worry too much about how much weight is on the bar at the expense of good technique.

    I would also practice some unloaded squat holds. How long can you sit in the bottom of an air squat without losing tension? Test it out. What fails first? Is it that same knee? Being able to hold for 5-10 minutes is what you are looking for. If you are way off that mark, practice max holds regularly til you get there. Should help with fatigue-related deficiencies in form.

    I've kind of accidentally started cutting due to circumstances, so decided to stick with it for a bit. Probably drop down to 175ish in the next 4 weeks which should see me at 11% BF which will be the perfect place to bulk hard from. Dont want to be getting to like 17-18% BF over the summer. I love only having to hit protein macros and keep carbs lower, much more enjoyable than 4000kcal per day IMO.

    fucking hell you change direction more often then I did when I first started.


    I don't think my hand is broken, maybe something in the palm, I can't really close it. Did it doing box jumps.

    Workout got fucked by waves of nausea all morning. Maybe it's time for a week off.
