Dropped a change plate on my phone
Do you have tightness in your pec minor? Push into your pec along the armpit and collarbone. If it's tight there try rolling on it with a hard ball.
Cause Sumo, right?
Been so long since I’ve pulled conventional I’d be lucky to go 135 for a single
You've lost all your man pull strength
Watched a genius attempt to bench 340 without a spotter. After he bounced the bar off his sternum extremely hard I knew that my services would potentially be required. He luckily dumped the bar on the bottom rack after fighting with it at 3-4 inches off his chest for a few seconds.
Always use a spotter with weight that could kill or severely maim you.
If that's the upper armpit area then yeah, currently killing me. Currently researching stretching stuff as I feel I do a good job with legs and back but not enough with my arms/shoulders.
I have a pvc pipe at home that I use for shoulder dislocations, do those regularly. Also, a stretch I love that really helps me: I’ll loop a heavy band over a pull up bar at the gym, hold onto the very end of the band with one hand and sit down/backwards with my arm in a straight line with my body. Feels great on my shoulders and I can usually feel it through my lats to lower back too
Don't sweat the stretching. Just get a baseball, softball, whatever you can find that is hard and round and lay on top of it in that area and roll it out. May take 5-10 sessions a day for a few days. Maybe 3-5 minutes per session. Also roll your upper back and see if any tender spots are in the opposite area kind of under the traps and around the scapula. Should hurt if it's tight.
I had the same issue from using too much chest in conjunction with pull-ups. You may also be suffering from side-sleep issues. If you sleep on your side and your shoulders have grown a bit, they could be getting compacted underneath your body at night.
Something like this has become a serious issue for me. I've always slept on my side with my arm under the pillow pointing straight upward (basically parallel to my head). Now I feel like I have a slight tear in my shoulder from it. I haven't pressed overhead in a LOOOONG time. When I try to be diligent about sleeping on my back, the pain subsides after a while (days/weeks). But one night of sleeping like a jackass can screw it all up again.
Sup dudes. I’ve been out of the game since kids came into the picture and now after a 2.5 year hiatus I’m ready to get my shit together and have started building a home gym.
Cage for squats and bench (also has a cable attachment that is surprisingly smooth)
275lbs of weights.
Still looking for dumbbells and an adjustable bench.
Question is my bar feels heavier on one side, how can I adjust it? Both sections where the plates go on are snug and symmetrical in relation to where the grips start so I’m kind of stumped.
jerk off with the other hand until your strength evens out
That was my first thought too.
Guy around my size failed on 1 rep benching 205 yesterday, immediately dismissed him as being weak. Same guy pulled 455 today, immediately became jealous.
What kind of bar is it? Do you have a budget in mind for an adjustable bench? I can help steer you in a direction. For dumbbells, are you looking for fixed weight set or adjustable set?
Was probably me.
I'm this way. Little more than 205, but still out of balance
How is that even possible.
Plenty of people have a 2x+ deadlift compared to bench but with a weight that low seems rare.
Would much rather have a great deadlift than bench.
Yea you’ll see guys in the lighter weight classes have a sub 300 bench and a 550+ deadlift. With respect to body weight multiples, they have the best leverages for pulling
After almost a day with KT Tape on the back, I must say I’m somewhat of a believer. Maybe it’s a placebo effect, maybe my back just feels better because of a few days of rest, but the improved feeling from yesterday to today is great. Will try again on other problem areas
how does one measure for size of knee sleeves one would need?
nvm I looked it up. gonna go with Rehband
also picked up some Virus Compression shorts and someone brought in a Inversion table I bought for $15
Not virus because $$$$$, but wearing leggings or compression shorts when training has been v enjoyable
Think I'm gonna buy Cal Strength's Club workout. its only 20/mo
You boys had better not be wearing shorts over those leggings
Watching the Ronnie Coleman documentary on Netflix... fucking heartbreaking.
i have had a hard time seeing his social media posts. he said in a Flex magazine interview a long time ago that even if he was paralyzed and in a wheelchair he would workout whatever body parts he could still move, if he could only move his neck, he’d have the strongest neck in the world. seeing that play out is sad.
Absolutely fucking not. T shirt and leggings.
Those stories were wild. Love the one of him drinking the night before the Olympia
For whatever reason. CAL Strength gets a lot of shit on r/weightlifting
Catalyst Athletics is pretty solid and you can buy single programs like $20. 2/3 though the 12 week complete cycle and like it
Hell yea. Welcome back.
Winter has hit the DC area and I currently can't stop eating, hopefully can make some good gains if my shoulders can stay intact while being a fatso
Shouldn’t matter. Gainz come from skawts bro.
Squats/deadlifts are currently the only main lifts that don't hurt, might end up a good thing taking a few weeks off of presses
Does all pressing hurt or just barbell variations?
Did bp Monday and it wasn't great, did some incline presses after and wasn't bad, then went to pullups which were a disaster and have been a disaster for a couple weeks and decided I needed to rest my inner shoulder
Edit: seems like I have no idea what my inner shoulder was and it's considered pec area
Just hit 445x5 on the squat. 13.5 weeks from my next meet. I did this weight in June at 6 weeks out for 3. That’s some nice progress.
Most addition is the Squatmax-MD belt squat. Also just got the new Intek ModF bar, which replaces the former functional trap bar. Covering the floor in stall mats, adding another gun rack, and moving my general garage shit storage from the floor to the ceiling to make space for a deadlift platform. Sorinex rack arrives early December. Adding some more wall storage to get other shit off my floor too.
That’s an uncomfortable looking porta-potty.
On day 4 after bicep repair surgery. See y’all in another 4-6 weeks.
its a sybian dude
11/17/2017 - prepping for a meet the 2nd week of Feb. Training that day was 345 for 3 sets of 5, top set of 3 on bench was 225 then backed off to 205 for 3 sets of 4.
11/16/2018 - prepping for a meet the 2nd week of February. Training was squatting 445 for 5 then backoff to 400 for 3 sets of 5. I bench 235 for 8 and 225 for 3 sets of 8.
Progress seems slow, but keep making those little daily victories and they add the fuck up.
I KNEW THAT
Kook move today.
Had 375 on the bar.
Completely unloaded one side
Luckily no one was next to me, could have killed someone
I’ve done this, nearly killed my buddy. It’s a mistake you only make once.
I always leave a plate in one side then do the other.
Was day dreaming about smoking some beef ribs later today
I’m sure you’ll be smoking some beef tonight.
i know one day i will do that. i came close about six months ago.
deadlifted today. in a nice groove with that. then did a dimmel deadlift/one arm row superset, and a bar row/pull-up to failure superset.
15 year old girl. damn
