microwave only goes up to 90, feels bad man. inb4 coldsnap fucks my bitch.
what does rhet think of DB row form? Also wondering if i should continue to try to maintain deadlift 5RM and 2RM on a cut, so far i'm pulling the same weight for 5 and 2 every week to maintain it, but its getting reaallllly heavy and think i will struggle soon. Would it be more sensible to just do heavy singles, doubles, or to lower the weight a bit and do more sets? My thinking is that it gets too taxing pulling a 5 and 2RM every week on a deficit
you're using WAY too much weight. your hand should be parallel to your side and you should lift with your lat by retracting it back, not jerking your whole shoulder complex upward.
Hmm personally disagree with that. I find holding it at that angle to activate the lats better, can also pull it in further at the top and the reason my shoulder goes down is to feel the lat stretch, my scapular stay retracted the whole time. I think people dont overload their lats enough as if you dont go heavy it doesnt stress your back it just becomes an arm movement which is what 90% of the gym seem to do. John meadows for reference:
Man up and keep moving the weight until you can't?
skinny ass dudes shooting up in the gym today
DB rows stink IMO. Too much energy wasted stabilizing. Machines gave me wings
I wish i had access to the nautilus pullover machine, that thing looks awesome for lats. Close grip pulldowns are good, i hate those chest supported machines where you work one side at a time though.
Seated cable rows hnnnnnngggg
I don't know how you dudes crush the Chinese buffets. I impulsively stopped at one by myself on the way home from the gym last evening and could only get through three packed plates before the itis started to set in. I was stuffed until well into the night.
only rows i can do are iso-plate loaded row.
Are upright rows supposed to hurt your shoulders? Was a greatly uncomfortable feeling, wondering what to replace them with.. Already do DB bent over rows.
upright rows are mostly for the side delts. If you do them with a DB, it doesnt hurt.
or the 95 lb ohp
