I think I PRd my pause squats last night with 475x3 @ ~8.5 on the duffalo bar.
Thank you for your service. Added today. Excellent.
For those of you into using gear...
What’s your creatine of choice?
sorry i'm natty bro
Any Creatine Monohydrate would be fine.
I think there’s only 4 factories in the US that produce creatine. It’s all the same just marketed and priced differently
Klokov is doing the crossfit games this year.
Do y’all worry about strength discrepancies between right and left side? It feels like my right side does a lot more of the work when benching and pressing. It’s not like the weight is only being lifted on one side or anything extreme, it just “feels” like my dominant side is taking over and my left side is just kinda assisting. Does that matter at all in the scheme of things? Should o be working on extra dumbbell work for my left side at all?
It will even out naturally over time
To an extent, I think so. My concern would be that as you get heavier, you end up putting disproportionate stress in awkward places, which COULD make you susceptible to injury. Single arm work should help balance.
Been doing more single arm pressing and lunges recently, definitely way stronger with right but attribute that to balance issues. Throwing and kicking right, have natural balance I don’t have the other way.
i haven’t worked on my upper body imbalance, but lower body i started doing single leg stuff a few months back. my right leg takes over at times and my hip would be more sore because of the shift.
Random question that I assume only capstone will know for sure but has anyone besides Benni deadlifted over 1000 raw without straps? Chris Weist seems to be very close and conventional
To my knowledge, no
Anyone got good protein powder recs? I used to really like Myoplex at 340 calories, 53g protein but looks like it has been discontinued.
Are you a Costco member? I like the Optimum Nutrition and they go on sale periodically. They’ve got a vanilla and chocolate.
i have been an Optimum Nutrition stan for a long time. sometimes i’ll take a deal from supplement hunt though they will have pretty big discounts on soon to expire proteins and supplements.
Yes. I’ll look for that next time. I’ve been buying Musclepharm Combat at Costco, but don’t like it quite as much as the Myoplex.
Working on a tub of Legion Whey+ (pricey, but taste is good) and BSN Syntha 6 whey. Both from Amazon.
I’ll stick with Legion for my next tub.
first time in 2 blocks i've been able to go up on OHP. some day i will press my bodyweight.
Has anyone seen a place where curl bars are in stock?
I got one off Amazon... for 1” plates though, not Olympic
Yeah ez bar but oly
this dream is fading for me.
i stalled at the end of my block 2 months ago when i switched my second lift from landmine presses to z presses. i know it has nothing to do with the z presses, and probably need to work them into my week a different way.
i've been doing lu raises a few times a week with light weights, and really like those.
I have this and I like it.
XMark Olympic Bar Curl Bar, Purchase Bar Only or with an Olympic Weight Set, Option of TRI-Grip or Texas Star Olympic Weight Plates with EZ Curl Bar, Black Manganese 28mm Chisel
Hurt my should shortly after I hit my bodyweight overhead goal. I don't think I've tried going heavy overhead since...
bodyweight OHP doesn’t sound so good after recent posts.
For me, it was just one of my 2-3-4-5 goals
OHP - 2 plates (which happened to be my body weight)
Bench - 3 plates
Squat - 4 plates
Deadlift - 5 plates
I had set those as some personal goals before I started competing, just to have something to shoot for. It served it's purpose, but probably never again.
those are basically what i had as my goals. although OHP is less than 2 plates. squat goal was double body weight for a while, but now i want 4 plates.
Mateusz posting his first OHP since his surgery. only 20-30lbs away from my current PR. coolcoolcoolcool.gif
this page is now an OHP only chat.
Anyone have any good functional weight lifting programs?
Not really sure what I'm looking for, but kind of want to change things up a bit. I'm having limited time right now so I'd like to maybe do 2 movements, then some mix of stretching/body movements. More of a general health thing vs list power/Oly lifting.
Give me workouts of like 30-40 min then I'll prob do a separate cardio session at night.
Feel like I'm almost going down a path of CX, but I don't want that
Def feel like I could break out lifts intelligently. Modified bro split type stuff. Don't know about the rest.
I did that AthleanX program for a while. It fits most of your criteria without being CX
Let me know if you want me to PDF it
Cool. I'll check. It out
I also wanna do some higher rep stuff vs 5 reps
It's like it knows.
It’s a lot of 15-20
That's a bit high lol. Was thinking more 8-10 but I'd like to see how the group lofts and do some non bar movements
I just need a change. Help refuel the drive and do something new.
Maybe I'll just go back to LA fitness where it all started and break out the chest/tri back/bi splits
To not long cat the thread here’s the first month.
Let me know if that’s what you’re looking for and can do the rest
