Recovery - the FinalFlex way

Page 2 of 6 First 1234 ... Last

  1. Kicked back just over ½ scoop of G8 last night – slept like a baby once again. I don’t wake up, or seem to even move once I’m out, with this stuff. Very restful sleep. The only downside I can say so far is I move a little slower right out of bed in the morning. Sorta ‘stoned’ like feeling – I’m awake, but I’m not going anywhere too quickly. It clears up after I kill my preworkout though.

    Bench today – between a bit of a slow start & trying to capture video for the first time ever, it took a bit longer, but had a good workout. Upped the reps a little on my ab work as well. I’m always fighting butt lift once the weight gets up higher. The last set, I had a bit of a weird hitch about halfway on the 3rd rep, partially me, partially my wife popping into the room to say bye

    First time posting vids ever – rip em up! I'm sure I could use plenty of technique work
    (My phone zooms in when it goes to video, so I was having trouble getting the angle I wanted, as the room isn't all that big - can't really see my chest once the bar comes down - I'll work on that)

  5. Yeah works now. Question though. Are you lifting for power or lifting for bb propose? Butt comes off the pad pretty high. Lower back is probably sore today.

    Yeah power. butt comes up bad for sure...

    Back feels alright actually. I do yoga a couple times a week-that helps a lot

  7. I'm not a power lifter by any means let me get that out of the way first lol. I think though that when you set your arch, your feet are not far enough back for one, and you reset your body again when you grip. That might be from the rack set up, but to me it looks like you are trying to pull your shoulder blades together once you are in position and that is again causing your feet to slide forward more hence losing more arch causing your butt to rise even more. Like I said I'm no power lifter but that's what I saw. Someone with a bit more experience might could critique better then me.

  8. Cool - yeah, shoulder blades end up being set last, my rack has super wide pins, so I roll the bar to the lip of the pins, then set shoulders go.

    Any tips, suggestions, etc, greatly appreciated. Hopefully this angle shows necessary info. I feel like my hips come up before everything else gets going. Felt little out of sync. No excuse, but having the video going changes my mental state a bit. I'll get used to that, as i can obviously learn a thing or 20 by showing you folks and having it dissected

    I need to find a way to not upload the sound though...

  17. 1/2 scoop G8 last night - Wow! I noticed that since I didn't get woken up by my alarm & just slept as needed, I was refreshed & ready to go this morning - night and day difference compared to being woken up mid sleep cycle... Busy day today (running a booth at World on the Square in Corydon for my wife's school), but planning on giving 1 full scoop a shot tonight.

  18. Jealous of the home gym!

    Good squats man. Id focus on just opening your knees up some more and that'll help. Strong erectors will keep ya from "good morning'ing" the weight up.

    Ive been sleeping like a rock with G8. It's definetly awesome stuff

    Once I get a cage, I'll be set...

    I will work on that more. Makes sense. In the "so you think " vids, he kept saying something about the movement being out to in vs up and down. I think I'm starting to get what you both are referring to. Thanks a lot!

  20. Getting woken up mid sleep cycle is bad stuff. G8 should keep you in the REM where the best recovery is going on with no problems.

  21. Im going to echo what the others are saying about the rounding of the back. I think in the vids they relate it to form breaking down but im not pro squater. Lol

    G8 really is a great supplement but i think no matter what you take if you get woken in the middle of a sleep cycle its going to be rough.

    This guy is pretty smart. Cues for better leg drive. Could help a little.

    Watching your squat vid and hearing Eddie Vedder made me laugh. Went to pizza a couple months back and he was at the restaurant. Funny, he's about 5' even. Always figured him to be bigger.

    wow eddie still lives up there eh?
    heard some of his more recent music not too long ago, was headlining a movie called "Into the Wild"
    always liked his voice

  24. If you are attempting power lifting as opposed to doing a olympic / body builder type of squat lower the bar on your trap. As a matter of fact it should almost be in between your rear delts and your traps. This will help with leaning too far. When you have the bar high up on your traps like you have it you are setting yourself up for more of an olympic lift. This means you are going to lower yourself in more of a vertical line with knees going forward. Trying to "sit back" into a squat with the bar that high up on your traps is putting you in a mechanical disadvantage. The leverage point is all off which makes you fold over. Just as much as you are driving through the heels you should be arching your back doing both of these with massive intent with the bar in the correct position lower on your traps will greatly help your drive out of the bottom and keep you from folding up so much.

  25. Thanks a lot for the input guys!

    One of these days, once I feel I've got my sh!t together a bit more, I'd like to try my hand at a competition....

    Deload this week - good opportunity to work on form, albeit somewhat tortuous to get started in the morning, as I skip my PWO for deloads.

    Nothing much to report on G8 or BCAA today - sipped BCAA throughout this morning (tastes & mixes great), but did not take G8 last night.

  26. Enjoy your deload and yes it is a perfect time to work on form.

    That's awesome - I hadn't listened to them in a while, but a buddy & I were talking about PJ a couple days before, so I threw Vitalogy on -


    yeah - his stuff for that movie was great. I heard some new Pearl Jam the other day that sounded like old-school heavy punk rock -
