    Whenever I have knee pain in that area I find that foam rolling the IT bands on the outer side if my legs releases it.


  2. Despite not having as much carbs as I usually would've on a sunday (due to it being Lower Body ME today) I had a magnificent workout.

    Lower Body ME: Squat (Low Bar)

    Warm up: 5 minute jog

    Warmup sets:
    45x5x5
    95x5
    135x5
    155x5

    Sets:
    175x3
    195x3
    215x3
    235x3
    255x3 PR (No belt)
    275x2 PR (Belt on)
    285x1 PR

    Video for Single:


    it's a bit iffy, but still got it.

    Hamstring Work: Stiff Legged Deadlifts

    225x6x6 Hips were too tight ever since the warm up and also my grip was a bit sucky today.

    Knee Extension work:

    Walking Dumbbell Lunges , it should've been Barbell Lunges BUT the squat racks were busy and I was pressed on time.
    45'sx12x6 (steps/reps for each leg)

    Ab Movements:
    Standing Cable Crunches/Standing Side Crunches

    80x20 / 50x10
    80x20 / 50x10
    80x20 / 50x10
    80x20 / 50x10

    Needless to say the oblique, abs and Glute/Quad pumps were fascinating during my assistances. Will elaborate more on the ME side of things in a sec, comments accepted on the squat, and no he didn't help, he just zoomed in because he thought I was getting buried...though I admit I lost tightness and almost failed it. The 275x2 was the cherrie on my cake today honestly.

  3. Way to push through on there. It looked like he pulled the bar back not up if he did anything at all. Either way nice depth, kind of frightening how you fell back into the rack obviously this was intentional but if there had been even the slightest bounce off of the hooks that could have been extremely dangerous for you. You should never need to go up on your toes to get the bar out of or return into the rack.

    Like another poster was saying, foam rolling really seems to help my knees.

    I kinda already have a feeling of how low I go and where to keep the pins at, but yeah when I saw the video I shrieked a bit haha. He says he didn't touch the bar though, and I sometimes mess up and let it slide down my back...was glad I still got it, I have to work more on keeping that form cleaner though. Thanks Chris

  15. Well today I treated myself to a great extra amount of carbs and some over the top calories since I broke PRs on my squat...and it is a bit of a tradition of mine to treat, pamper and spoil my body when it performs to the standards I am demanding of it...that and the fact I had real low carbs on the weekend and my body was looking flat, depleted and not up for tomorrows Upper Body ME mayhem I have planned...

    Looking forward to seeing how Max Pump behaves tomorrow with a previous night of a proper hydration, glycogen replenishment, plenty of protein and fats and finally some light at the end of my past weeks angry and dark week.

    That is becuase I am under an extreme amount of strain. If I were to do those pics now I would be much more impresive.

    Thanks like I said it's the strain these put you under, if I were to recreate the situation with the same photographer right now I'd make the guy in those pics look like pee-wee herman lol

  20. Since we are talking ab work...I suggest some of you read this guy's site/articles: http://www.benbruno.com/

    I hate doing abs but his articles tend to have some insane looking stuff so it keeps it interesting and keeps me trying new things. Plank Sled drags.... :death:

    You know what I kinda don't get...how to work the back side of the obliques, the part that is over the glutes? You know almost lower back...it's still part of the core. I am tighter and more solid in the rectus abdominalis and in the pyramidalis...my obliques have also grown and all...but for some reason I am thin as crap on the side, you can see oblique definition and mass, but I am like literally 6-7" thick on the side! it's annoying as hell! I need a more solid core for more power! I'm quitting the cheap attitude and buying myself an Ab Wheel later today. For now my main Ab movements are 2 per Lower Body day...I wanna make them:

    -Standing Cable Crunches and Standing Oblique weighted side crunches
    -Ab Wheel + Weighted Planks , or Hanging Leg raises

    Anything that get's me a more solid core!

    is what i love about working with these guys - their modesty

  23. You want a solid core do lots of standing military / shoulder press your core will respond for sure. Not sure what to do about the rear side of the obliques besides maybe some good chopping exercises.

  25. Today was by FAR my best Upper Body ME session of this year...everything was just in place, everything worked out better than even planned.

    Upper Body ME: Bench.

    Warmup: 5 minute Rower, back was SUPER tight for some reason, I think I slept crooked or something but the traps/scapula and rear delt area was tight...this loosened it up a bit.

    Warmup:
    Bar x 10 x 2 (Paused)
    95x5x2
    135x5

    Sets:
    155x5
    175x5
    195x5 PR
    205x3 PR
    210x1 PR all alone finally
    215x1 PR and my ****ing idiocy got in the way, I set the phone for Pic not for recording, and it was only 2 of us there today...so I even set it up and all on top of a box to get a good angle and I didn't notice I only took a pic .

    Today I just couldn't believe it, focus, power, recovery everything was in place for this ME session...I mean I couldn't believe it didn't feel heavy at ALL.

    Supplemental Lift (I've been responding to this one SO good) CGBP, used it as my main muscle builder too.
    135x10
    145x10
    155x8x4

    Shoulder Assistance: Rack was busy and I did say I had to stop neglecting my Side heads and so I did.
    15x15x4

    Even though it was only 15lbs my Focus, and tempo were spot on all sets. 1 minute rest between sets, 4 second negative, 1 second contraction at the top. Pumps, veins and mirror-o-meter measurements were off the rail.

    Lat assistance work: Kroc Rows
    80x15x4

    Damn these were so good...Had a whole Back/Traps/Brachioradialis pump all along.

    Extra Tricep Work: Standing Dumbbell Extensions (Real nasty stretch on the long heads) again a 4-1-1 tempo.

    Prehab: Rotator Cuff Work.

    Truly...magnificent, I wanna thank not only Steve, Doug, Al and Chris for letting me try this, but also for the huge motivation and support they all have given me. Honestly, Steve has been amazing specially on PMs and with nice mentor advice, the Finaflex team really nailed it with quality people, and this product speaks for itself. If being able to keep short rest intervals, peak power output and good vasodilation throughout a ruthless and heavy day like this...then I don't know what people wanna see in it, but for me I am sold and thoroughly liking the product. Looking forward to the write up and release indeed.
