Just keep it to the compound lifts throughout the week?
Just up the dose of Vitamin D(eca).
Was thinking that would help and avoiding anything with vitamin (tr)E(n)
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.
anybody follow tom haviland? where the hell did he come from?
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
his lifts are insane. he’s so damn strong
I follow Josh Bryant so that’s how I found him. Love his content. Dude is insane. Almost 400lbs and lean as hell. Extremely strong and explosive.
What’s the best bent row from the floor?
max weight pull it however?
I like trap bar rows personally.
pendlay or seal row
Depends what area of the back you’re wanting to hit.
close grip I do this:
Wider grip Pendlays
Seal rows 4x a week for me
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.
Sorry, the correct answer was "whatever you can do standing over a barbell with maximum weight."
a single arm landmine is fun
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
Being out of the game for a while, are the other forms still just marketing cash grabs while mono continues reigning king?
Yup. There are a few that *could* be useful in certain circumstances but I’m talking things like glutamine, magnesium, etc.
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.
2 tsp of natural calm every night before bed
That sweet sweet ZMA. Got many a lucid dreams on that
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
Tornado cleanup has put my workout routine to shame. I’m hurting in places I didn’t know existed
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
Sorry man. Hope you and your family are ok
In laws. Everyone is safe. Thank you though.
I feel ya pain, my man. Not quite as bad as tornado cleanup, but I'm tired of hurricanes. Y'all stay safe.
My hotel this week had dumbbells up to 100lbs… felt good to get a good workout in the mornings
I bet that was great motivation to one day get above the 50lb dumbbells
Yeah, I mean I just stayed with the 70s but still..
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
apparently squat doesn’t matter
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.
1.5 squats for 4x6 are just the BEST time to have some gas god damn
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...
Get a concept C2 bikeerg and don’t look back.
Airdyne AD4 is the GOAT fan bike. I'll ride mine until I falls to pieces
I’m broad terms, seems like you need a lot more focus on your quad strength. So, just as Capstone 88 suggested:
narrow stance/heel elevated squats
Tried pulling 405 and trying to break the floor I felt something pull on my left side of my lower back. Fuck. Tried loading up a light squat to check for pain and sure enough….
