Nice feature on Third Looks, Charly.
Someone clear this up for me. If you are always in a state of internal rotation (shoudlers) wouldn't have you good internal rotation and poor external rotation? By buddy use to say I was always internally rotated but if I measure my external rotation it's like 80* while my internal rotation is a piss poor 15-20* (terrible!!!)
Charly: also meant to ask where these custom made tees are from. I like them.
I love them. Tees my girlfriend made for me from a pattern she and I developed.
it shouldn't be that hard, just make sure the beam can support the weight.
Charly, is it much of a hassle or a costly endeavor? I can't seem to find decent tees that fit well and don't carry insane price tags.
Charly you lookin good no homo
More of a hassle because I have to bug my girlfriend all the time.
If you want to have custom tees made, it shouldn't be costly at all - just the cost of fabric and labor from a tailor that has the simplest of pattern making and cut and sew garment making skills.
Love this guy. No big tree in your backyard?
What do you mean by heavy?
Been following the vert jump bible intermediate balanced program. had to take a break since my left achilles feels a little sore.
I understand where you're coming from, but I'm an actual collegiate basketballer/sprinter. Can't really increase my bw to properly train oly as it impedes my skills / body efficiency. Right now I'm a hair above 160lbs @ 10% bf and my coach is pushing me to maintain instead of bulking. I actually like to weight-train, but any significant increase in bulk/bf will kill me on the field.
Just went back to the gym today after taking a solid 3.5 weeks off for midterms and give some rest to a bunch of nagging injuries (calves, traps, kness). Squatted 90kg 5x5. Feels super bad man, I was putting up 125kg 5x5 not too long ago. Strangely my press didn't decrease to much, only lost about 5lbs.
What is your routine?
I don't know what your program is, but from what I remember this is what I used to do (and can't now because my gym has less stuff than my high school gym did... wtf)
1. Speed box jumps at 2-3" below max and jumping clean onto the top, not on the edge.
2. Weighted jump rope
3. Box jumps with a plate (in retrospect probably a terrible idea, too crossfit-y).
4. Lots of explosion work (cleans, fast ATG squats).
if i remember more i'll let you know, but even doing #4 right now is keeping me steady at a decent vertical.
Gonna pm you later.
You are talking about two different things here.
1. Your resting posture.
2. The range of motion.
The fact that your shoulders internally rotate as your resting position does not necessarily mean you will have a high range of motion in this direction. In fact, the opposite is usually true. Rounded shoulders are usually a result of the anterior chest/shoulder region being more developed than the posterior back/shoulder region. As a result, your chest/anterior shoulder are less mobile, and pull the shoulders into a constant state of internal rotation. Your weak back isn't strong enough to prevent this. At the same time, tightness in the front of the shoulder prevents full range of motion with internal rotation, while the lack of developed muscle at the back of your shoulder gives you plenty of range with external rotation.
