    Yeah in order to become doc they require us to take 4 years of literature, basketweaving, calculus, horticulture, and a bunch of other useless shit so we can have a nice base of student loans to build our debt mountain off of.

    The way it is here is they do first year health sciences and then the most competitive ones get in.

    I used to do a fair bit of teaching med students in undergraduate labs. My impression was that the overwhelming majority of them did not understand even basic concepts of natural selection or other core ideas in biology, but were awesome at getting the marks anyway.

    It's probably not a bad idea to have people do a bit of learning-for-learning's sake.

    Although I do sympathize about the debt.

    Undergrad was a blast. My birdwatching course(srs) was fucking awesome.

    I'm currently bulking and running a decently high volume 3 days a week push/pull/legs split. Wanna incorporate one day of cardio (sprints or low intensity running) and one day for prehab and bodyweight stuff (dips, pullups, pistol squats, etc).

    Thinking of laying it out like this:
    Day 1 - legs
    Day 2 - push
    Day 3 - rest
    Day 4 - pull
    Day 5 - prehab and bodyweight lifts
    Day 6 - cardio
    Day 7 - rest
    Repeat

    What do you think? Too much work?

    I feel like you could combine push/pull/BW lifts into one day, and legs/prehab work into another... maybe cut down the volume or alternate exercises and hit everything twice a week. Not sure what kind of cardio you are doing but maybe hit something up in the mornings, fasted. Different strokes for different folks but that's been working for me, could be worth a shot.

    Noticing all kinds of gains since I started doing sissy squats. Quads getting juicy with some nice upper quad detail coming in.

    Also tried barbell hack squats for the first time. Feels totally unnatural and awkward.

    I just started IA SPBR last Mondy and already messed my shoulder benching lol! I'm weak as a bitch!

    I seem to be recovering though. It hurt around my shoulder if I tried lifting my arm up any kind of way.

    Does it sound like rotator cuff injury?

    When doing IA SPDR, you may want to swap out one of the shoulder press exercises for something like lateral raises or upright rows.

    On those days, you're doing enough pressing movements that your shoulder are toast by the time you get to those exercises.

    Not all shoulder pains are cuff injuries. Both of mine ended up being nasty trigger points in my upper back

    Second week of routine stressing power-versions of the Sn and C&J and I power snatch for 100kg yesterday. I think there's more to come. Really getting big 2nd pull and fast 3rd pull from all these power movements, hopefully it will carry over when I get back to the full versions.

    Also, some dudes are like "Why is he gripping so wide for a deadlift" then I throw the damn thing up over my head. Satisfying.


    Charly, after watching some bros at my gym crank out some "massive" bench presses, I think I know how to get your bench up. :teach: See, you're descending too slowly; you should essentially drop the weight on your sternum while thrusting your pelvis in the air and use the "elastic power" of your ribcage in order to catapult the bar off your chest. You could probably get another 40 pounds on your bench easy that way. :foo:

    Seriously, though; it would be so nice to see people bench like a real man instead of the bullshit of throwing the bar off their chest. Makes me cringe every time.
