    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    Creatinol O Phosphate is not creatine. It's common that people think so because of the similarity if the names. You would normally still take your 3-5 grams of creatine too.

    Oh ok, my bad. I do like taking beta alanine, and citrulline maleate each day with my pre workout (if I take one) what benefits do you see from the cop?

    COP is essentially a creatine precursor...

    Creatinol

    Creatinol in the form of creatinol-O-phosphate (COP) has been described and used in subjects with deficient myocardial circulation (Guglielmi and Mammarella*1979). Based on the findings that intravenous administration of COP in healthy human subjects led to increased values of creatinine in urine, it is speculated that creatinol acts as a precursor of creatine and is metabolized into creatine within the body (Melloni et al.*1979). The increased urinary values are derived from the degradation of creatine into creatinine through the typical biochemical pathways. Only one study investigated the ability of COP to improve muscular performance (Nicaise*1975). Fifty female patients were treated intramuscularly and intravenously with COP and performance tested utilizing a Martin Vigorimeter to measure muscle strength in both hands. The administration of COP resulted in a statistically significant improvement in hand strength.

    COP is N-methyl-N-(beta-hydroxyethyl) guanidine O-phosphate. COP pre-treatment has been studied on the recovery of contractility of rat isolated heart after hypoxia or ischemia (i.e. lack of oxygen). Thus, it is suggested that Creatinol-O-Phosphate exerts its cardioprotective effect by an action on anaerobic glycolysis. Pharmacokinetic studies have shown that absorption of COP administered intramuscularly! is complete. COP is distributed in all organs, and in particular, in the kidney, liver and myocardium or heart tissue. After being dephosphorylated, this COP is eliminated with urine. Dephosphorylation of COP occurs in the kidney and liver. COP crosses the membrane of the myocardial cell, concentrating in the cytosoluble fraction. The results of the toxicological studies confirm that COP has no side effects, is excellently tolerated and has a favorable therapeutic index.

    You need some technique work on the sumo. It's hard to tell from the video, but it looked like your knees went in, which made your ass come up before the bar started moving. Also, you need to have a big, tight arch in your lumbar and your scapula should be retracted and not rounded. You kinda turned it into a sumo stance SLDL and used all erector strength to complete the lift. Were you using a DL bar or just a regular bar?

    That's too low. There aren't too many technical carryovers from conventional to sumo, but one of them is making sure that the should joint is in line with the bar. If you're that low, chances are you shoulders were behind the bar.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    No problem.

    C, not sure if you've seen it, but here's a vid of me from several months ago pulling sumo.



    Notice the hip and head position does not move throughout the pull as you should envision the movement of a leg press.

You kinda turned it into a sumo stance SLDL and used all erector strength to complete the lift. Were you using a DL bar or just a regular bar?
    Olympic bar , and yeah that form sucked! Knees didn't go in, but stance wasn't wide enough and back wasn't properly arched . I'll work on it and put up another bid from the front or a higher side angle. Thanks for the input bro!

    I kinda thought it was an Oly bar based on the amount of flex (or lack thereof). Really work on that positioning as it is the most critical element of sumo and the hardest to really master. A 1RM will always be a little dirty, but it should still be ~90% technically correct.

    Strong work in here man. Your log is full of great info with all the discussions. This stuff has me tempted to really devote myself to more of a powerlifting approach. Hmmmm....

    Thanks bro, but it is all thanks to the great bros that I have helping me out here , I'm real thankful for that indeed. And yeah I would say powerlifting approaches are the most fun for me xD I enjoy this a lot, but BBing EW...too complicated! Power is where the good times are (though it is frustrating when your lifts don't go up too haha)

    Forgot this word of warning:Consistently doing both sumo and wide-stance squats in the same week is not a good idea. It will slowly break down your hips and leave you with some gnarly impingements if done for a long period of time.

    Thanks for that! I have been doing shoulderwidth ATG and was thinking of going back wide stance for some weeks, I'll stick to ATG then.

    Can't he get a pair of briefs to protect his hips? Or is that not enough and he should still lay off heavy amounts of wide stance

    I think what Rodja refers to is the fact that if I am using that stance for 2 movements in 1 week it can and will lead to overuse injury. I take it it is the same way as using the Rotator cuff for like 4-5 days a week, more exposure and stress on a joint (in this case the hip joints) can lead to unnecessary strain and wear of the cartilage maybe?

    Yeah I ditched my belt and straps due to hearing this many times from my coach and from Rodja. Funny I lift better and stronger without it (Prolly because it was a wide belt).

    Besides I wanna compete in the Raw class at some point...so I better not get used to gear !

    ^^ Uh yeah celly i understood what rodja meant. I was just asking if briefs would help.
    Idk about you but i WILL NOT squat without a belt. I LOVE my lever belt.. You cannot get as tight without one. That's a fact.

    Why don't you reccomend gear rodja?
    also
    how do you feel about the no belt squatting?
    (im sure for lighter weights it would be fine) but i'm thinking when you get into even something that is a hard set of 10 you should probably wear it...
    **** man i wear my lever while squatting 135. I just like how i can get tight with it on and i feel much more sturdy..
