    That’s what I would do, and later on if you want to add back in isolation work keep the volume down. I’ve had some of the exact stuff you’re describing and it went away when I stopped doing strict curls twice a week

    might just need to work on some better warms ups. i used to get elbow issues squatting and pressing and when i started doing band routines it backed off.

    He’s awesome. Lives off the land in Australia, has a 10 foot python just chilling, does like 2 hour rucks every day(recently added a sledgehammer to his ruck), and is insanely strong

    Imagine seeing a giant near 400 pounder in the woods with a sledgehammer

    Love seal rows, especially with a trap bar. Had this stool I reinforced and with lay with chest padding on it. Worked for a while but started to get a little nervous as the weights creeped up. I rigged a trap bar seal row in the squat rack using a 2x8 with padding across two secured spotter arms. Works great to me and I get a full stretch. A bit precarious to climb on and off but it works.

    I saw some comments about creatine, but what is the safest dose to take without it becoming toxic? Or just don’t take it at all?

    Follow the instructions, the only reason I don’t take creatine is that I saw no benefits but it helps a lot of people with no side effects. It probably only helps at best 1-2% but better than nothing

    Creatine is the safest and most researched supplement on the market. It won’t be toxic unless you take the whole jar at once

    Yup. There are a few that *could* be useful in certain circumstances but I’m talking things like glutamine, magnesium, etc.
     
  24. Frankie Carbone

    I’m planning on implementing it soon. Any specific ones to look into especially with the glutamine benefits?

    i always judge a protein powder as good by having many of those amino acids and minerals. i would much rather just take it already in my protein vs. buying separately.

    side story: i went with flavorless protein this time because supplement hunt had a deal. hopefully i haven't re-created my pea protein fiasco of 2017.

    I found what helped me previously with tendonitis issues, if anyone is going through similar problems. There was only a limited selection of options before and the one I used was called Super Cissus Rx which is cissus quadrangularis stem extract. Plenty of products out now that make it. The one I’ve been using going on 4 days now has subsided the pain quite a bit already so it’s not hindering doing any specific movements on lifts.

    I haven’t taken glutamine so im not really sure on its benefits. Magnesium is probably a good general one to take to help sleep, recovery, etc.

    I also don’t want to cause anyone to panic but I benched twice last week without debilitating pain so watch out 148lb women. I’m coming for your bench records soon

    Cortisone shot in my shoulder. No overhead lifts for a couple months as I have tendonitis apparently.

    I did swing an ax yesterday and everything is sore but my shoulder with cortisone in it

    Help me solve a problem. I’m pretty sure I could go a year without touching weights and be able to deadlift 300lb, but I wouldn’t be able to squat 185lb. I think hip flexibility is a part of it but is there anything I’m missing with secondary workouts that could help close that gap

    I’m not sure I’m understanding. Are you just wanting to drive your squat up or are you planning to take some time off?

    I took time off because of kid+COVID and I came back to a decent deadlift and a not so great squat so I’m trying to drive up the squat

    Gotcha ok. So I think with the squat being more technical it’ll have a sharper fall off without training vs a conventional deadlift. I’d say you could tackle this a few ways:
    1) just squat more. You could add an extra day squatting. Don’t go past 3 though as that will almost assuredly take away from any recovery.
    2) make your second squat day something that’s “technique focused” so pause squats or tempo squats would be great here
    3) add in hack squat/belt squat if available. Those will blow your squat up as will unilateral leg accessories: lunges, split squats, etc.

    Do any of the Assault bike equivalents have a setting that just performs like a regular stationary bike with no resistance? The wife is looking for something simple, but hoping I can use it to my advantage...

    I’m broad terms, seems like you need a lot more focus on your quad strength. So, just as Capstone 88 suggested:
    • lunges
    • Bulgarians
    • pause/tempo squats
    • narrow stance/heel elevated squats
