    Thanks. Lumbar usually feels good post workout. The muscles are still contracted to a higher then normal degree and the circulation is still a-flow'n. It's usually the next day that I may feel some oddities, like spurts of muscle spasms or a soreness that borders on concern. However, I think my back is getting stronger and more stable in general. I'm progressing at a reasonable speed, so I think I'm giving my body the allotted time to appropriately adjust. Thanks for ask'n.

  3. I agree with you on using your grip for deads. When I use straps it feels like the weight is just hanging from my shoulder joints. When I grip the bar raw the entire upper shoulder region becomes involved. I will not be using straps again.

    I totally concur - especially considering that my forearms are always a weakpoint for me. The hand-activation brings in the entire arm into the lift much better.

    100% agree!



    That's the part the lift that felt "off", when I used the wraps and that's exactly the part that felt "on" again, when I took the wraps off.

    Which was an odd experience, considering how much I was previously, over-dependent on my wraps.

  6. Nothing has so improved my overall performance as heavy, raw deads. Whether it's bench, squat, military, weighted dips or chins; they've all improved because of the overall strength increases that dls promote.

  7. Volcom... Is your ATG anywhere near this low?

  8. HAH! That is awesome, and I have no idea where you found my video.

  9. He must have gotten powned on his comments section. Lame ROM is one thing, lame ROM using big weight compounds the lamage'ness. Consequently, the two are usually synonymous.

    I've actually seen worse, AND on the Smith to boot. I've got no qualms with Smith Squats, but if on the Smith you're still doing knee twitches, AND using big weight... stop it. Gym pass and driver's license revoked... maybe U.S. Citizenship.

    I personally like BB Smith Squats: extremely close and forward stance, with a very deep eccentric motion. I have accentuated the tear-drop nicely with those. This is using 225 with slower reps, though; so no giant weights.

    When I was doing big deads on a regular basis (back in the day), when 405lbs was my first working set of 8-10 reps, up to 495. I can honestly say that was when I was the strongest & thickest, overall. My most notable strength was anything back related. My back strength was in a skewed ratio compared to anything else. I'm just glad to be able to do Deads at all. I don't know if I'll ever get to that level of deads, my prime concern being the trustworthiness of my lumbar (and raw grip), but I'm enjoying what I can do right now. No complaints. I think my sub-par opening squats humbles me and keeps my ego in check, so when it's time for deads, there's zero, alpha male ego driving me to go buck wild.

    I really used to enjoy sliding on 4 & 5 wheels to the barbell for deads. At "my gym," that was a lot, I mean like, I might have had thee strongest dead of all the members day & night ("at my gym") and I won't lie, I enjoyed the envy, buuuuut, like I said, I'm grateful for what I can do at the moment.

    Gracias, Rob. Nothing like going through seriously debilitating injuries that will put a lot of luxuries into perspective. When I wasn't able to move, specifically, walking, without second to second sharp & shooting pains, I didn't care about deads, squats, crunches or curls, I just wanted badly to be pain free. Hell, less pain would have been good enough. Ever since then, my bodybuilding OCD was a bit relaxed.

    Same here bro. I love throwing on all those plates the very same way: feels great, you know you are gonna rip it, and you know everyone is watching you throughout your set, lol. It feels good to have good #'s afters years of hard work and dedication.

    But on the flip side, Ive also had injuries. I have injured both knees(one in HS squatting, and the other the 1st yr of college, squatting) and it has taken me forever to get back up to 315 for reps on atg squats. It sux and is quite depressing, but like you... "I'm grateful for what I can do at the moment."

    I know EXACTLY what you are talking about Sam. After suffering a biking accident I was dreading the upcoming surgery. After it I was in sooo much pain that all I wanted was another surgery I figured total anaesthesia was the only way to free me of pain, since even morphine failed

    You've told me about how morphine didn't even work. That's crazy! I'm happy I've never had to deal with that type of pain before.
