hb is just better suited for some, i've always felt much more comfortable with it myself when compared to low bar.
I'm fairly certain HB is knee break as opposed to LB's hip break, so knee over toes is likely unless you have short femurs?
I dont think he was complaining
Ghanaian in fact.
Ctk, you still uptown? I just moved to the heights
Is this gonna work? (bastardized texas method):
Mon: Oly squat > RDL > Bench > Pendlay row
Wed: C & J > DL > Weighted Pullups > Core = overhead squat, ab roller, leg raises
Fri: Same as Mon, can sub Oly with front. ME but 1x5 only.
Was doing ME oly on mon & fri, ME front on wed, got gainz but i burnt out on week 4.
In other news, bf is 8.7% on Tanita scale @ 160 lbs. W00t. Also hit new PR for 200m.
Yeah, high-bar sitting almost straight down feels a lot more natural for me. I imagine some people have problems with ankle flexibility but I've got that covered from skateboarding. I don't know if this matters, but I'm 6'3 and my hamstrings have been tight for basically my whole life, so maybe high bar just suits me better? I also always read that squats should break at the hips, like RDL's and GMs, but that doesn't make sense at all high-bar.
Thanks for clearing it up. Feels good to finally take a step in the right direction.
I'm really happy with this 5/3/1 boring but big template right now. Feel like the additional reps are making my 1+ days go up real fast and is filling me out. I need 5/3/1 for a year or more, figure I would do boring but big during my bulk.
Man wtf is the average american.. I feel like lifting has sort of isolated me from society in a way. Like friend is going to an open mic tonight and I was stoked to go. Find out it starts at 10:00 which means I prob wont get home till 1:00, wake up at 7:00 for my 9-5 workday. That seems like hell and is that what most americans do most weeknights?
I gained 20-25 lbs of proper muscle, it's a decent gain for about 2 years when I've only been paying attention to my macros for the last 1. I think I was 150-155 in that photo and am 175 now on a cut. I want to be 185, I plan to go back to a slow bulk after I get back from my vacation. I know I could bulk quickly and get fat to gain the next 10 but what's the point? Suddenly make all my clothes not fit? Better to slowly make all my clothes not fit.
anyway, time to do my early morning agile-8. fucking hate it
O man the mamis. I was just in the BX for work today.
Yea I am still here. Hopefully not for long doe. Trying to move down south. Buy a house and impregnate the wifey
I used to do the whole routine... now it's more like the agile 4.5
There were certain movements I felt didn't do shit (i.e. fire hydrants) and others I'd die without (lx ball to the piriformis, flexor stretch)
I still do fire hydrants like 3 years later
Truer words were never spoken. To echo deadly7's comment about things lost on most e-bros, this tops my list. New lifters are so concerned with making strength gains, they spend years lifting with crappy form. Most people don't start taking technique seriously until they suffer a bad injury. Coaches make a big difference in this respect, but even if you are training yourself, spend the time focusing on getting the movement right before you think of lifting heavy weights. If you can't move your body through space properly, you've got no hope of moving external objects through space properly.
I youtubed fire hydrants and got this:
For real, this shit is imperative. I wish i did this but when I went from olympic lifting i was like durrr olympic lifters are as flexible as gymnists and thought i never had to work on mobility. Now I love mobility though, it's really close to just as important to strength for me.
