  3. wow...didnt think my thread was still alive...

    well, hightop socks chalked on the shins helps plenty, i'll still get some blood here and there, but very minor

    i dont want to sound like a [email protected], but my form is decent i'll say...i've always loved & respected the exercise enough to take whatever steps necessary to improve but never underestimate the toll bad form can take on ur body

    just hit 505 for 1 rep recently, proud of that...and no bleeding

    i guess i came off as a puss, but i've been sucking it up for years...i just felt it was time to see how other people deal with it...just seems i have these very minor scabs on my shins that never fully recover, and the slightest brush of the bar with a decent amount of weight takes em right off, and those little fckers bleed a suprising amount

    haha dude i'm not sure but i've always been taught to drag the weights all the up against your legs for proper form.

    i think if you're bleedin ur doing it right.

    takes a tough mother to stand there and keep pullin with blood rolling down your shins, your muscles screamin at ya to quit, sweat pourin down makin it hard to hold onto the bar...

    but that's what makes us body builders. it's what seperates us from the pansy asses who're in there staring at themselves inthe mirror doing curls 6 days a week dreamin of all the tang they'll get at the beach. screw them. i

  7. Regardless of the scrapes, try sumos for a month or so. Its a different exercise all together. And its not as hard on your spine. I switch up every six weeks or so and gain progressively on both forms.
