1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    What's to agree... I asked Fuji a question. nvm.

    Btw has anyone ever used one of those hanging upside down table contraptions for stretching? My unlce has one and says it's great, but I've never had the chance to use one.

    So I narrowed my grip for power cleans and now I'm getting slight bruising on my clavicles instead of sternum with the bar resting higher. My elbows still flare out at the top of my jerk with the bar resting. Is this correct? I'm not concerned about bruising or anything, just wondering what it says about my form.

    My mom had one and she used to it stretch her back. She has a compressed disk and it helps her to reduce pain.

    23 today.

    Is it weird that I feel old? But at the same time I'm in such a limbo, I hardly FEEL like an adult, but I like to think I act like one. I also pretty much live an adult life style, work like a mother fucker for future goals without much downtime...

    Whatever. Maybe it's the percosets making me all contemplative haha.

    I thought you were expressing skepticism in which case I was agreeing.

    You're probably not getting your elbows high enough (or not getting them around fast enough). The bar should rest on your deltoids, and there should be air under the center of the bar.

    work on rack delivery and your clean receipt position. grip width is a matter of preference and anthropometry, experiment with what feels good for you. the key is hitting the right positions all the time and finding out the grip and stance that make them happen for you. imo a proficient power clean is in some ways much trickier to learn than a clean, because you need good timing and feel of the barbell, sometimes even more so than for a clean.


    not going to happen with decent weights

    Now granted, for someone with a thicker chest, there may be very little or no air under the bar, but thinking of racking only on your delts and not evenly across your chest should help with clavicle bruising.

    Pumping Iron's on Netflix. Just watched it and it inspired me to put together a weekly diet plan and stop being a lazy fuck

    I'm at the Roanoke airport mirin the beautiful Virginia mountains while waiting for a flight back to where it's flatter than a pancake. I used to cycle them mountains weekly. Reminds me of how much I miss doing centuries in the mountains; I miss dat burn.
