Man this cold is doing a number on me. Not meant to live like this
Cannot wait to squat on Friday.
Those of you who want to be big and/or strong that don't like to squat should be ashamed of yourselves!
(Though I don't think anyone here is in that group of idiots)
I'm a total convert in that regards. Before starting my current lifting program I avoided squats because I mistakenly believed they just worked the butt+legs. Now squat day is my favourite gym day.
I'm still not comfortable with my dead lifts though.
The gym at my office has no floor padding, so I can't rapidly lower/drop the weight after hitting upright on the dead. The result is that I'm lifting a lot less than I feel I could. I also have problems determining what is an appropriate height for my hips during set-up. Often when I watch videos of my deads they look almost like high squats, which I know can't be right
you know what fucking rule? front squats. traps, lats, abs, and quads are thanking me, plus it helped sort out some minor pelvic tilt i had going on. i started doing them on account of shoulder issue preventing me from back squats and now i am hooked.
APK i hope you didnt break yourself dude, thats a bad feel.
ergo bros, any ideas for desk wrist rests? elbows and wrists have been bugging me lately towards the end of the workday.
Thanks, man. Feeling pretty shitty right now. I'm laid up in bed because it's actually kind of difficult to even walk without feeling pain in the lower back. Almost like I have no stability there right now. Glutes and hips are pretty beat up feeling right now; just been working those over with the Thera cane.
I don't have any pain or discomfort in my legs, so based on what I've read, that's a positive. I only take some comfort in that I've been in this condition two other times in my life, so I know it passes, but obviously, I'm going to need to address some form issues to keep this from being a recurring problem.
Decided to switch to a more stiff-legged pull yesterday....glad I did! It was harder and I had to drop the weight a good amount, but I was able to maintain form better and definitely can feel it more in my posterior chain. Will probably make this a permanent change as my hamstrings could use some work.
I'm no expert but wouldn't you want to pull with your hips down? Most the time I see people back bend during the lift cause they have week ass hips and should train that, like some other people here...
Herman Miller + Track Ball + Ergonomic keyboard + knobbler. I now use my left hand for mousing on the track ball exclusively. Left hand controls mouse, right hand knobbles left pec and tricep.
When I pull hips down I end up basically squatting the weight up and using very little posterior chain. I'm a quad dominant squatter/puller. Hence why I always struggle on the lockout. Weak hips is exactly the reason I'm doing stiff legged from now on.
Hammies are feeling it today.
I'm the same way. I prefer it like that. Posterior chain strong enough to keep everything locked in place while the legs and ass do all the work.
TKJTG check out kb swings you can only posterior chain with those.
from the desk of a weirdo.. i got those two candles from a white elephant..
Where's the industrial sized Jergen's and giant box of tissues?
bro i have girlfriend, dont let that knobbler fool you I am a happy man
