i have noticed great gains in size and shape. 18in calves, 3.5in gain in my chest, good ab situation but my lats are like nonexistance, like the side of my ribs are so visibile. what can i do, like workouts
More pull ups and dumbbell rows
I don't feel it when I start with power cleans. But when I go heavy on benching 260+ it feels like an ache on the lateral aspect of the anterior sections of the joint. Then when I do power cleans they get worse. But on PC only days it's A-Ok.
Kinda confusing I guess.
It sounds like classic impingement of the supraspinatus tendon (one of the rc muscles).
Do you keep your elbows in and a narrower grip when you bench (i.e.: athletic bench), or do you use a powerlifting (wide grip, elbows in) or do you flare them out in poor technique?
I'll try and make a video to put up on here for everyone to critique when I get my workout in today. Which view would be best from an observational standpoint?
A few would be best to use for analysis
aahhhhhhhh the good ole days! Enjoy the lifts with the team. They are the best memories you will have
yuppers, except the sxhool gym is filled with douches so i cant let myself lift there
i havent been updating because i gave been studying for a "current event" madness tourny my school had every year. we are in the final four so we get a week pff. anyhow ima up to 195.2lbs and today is squatttttt day!
Squat day here too. I feel like maxing on bench though just to see where I'm at.
great squat day, my back feels so good, i warmed with 135 and worked my way up ftom 225 to 355, i lovee it!
killin it bra! have you begun offseason spring ball yet?
thanka dude, and yeah 7 on 7 passing stuff start in late may and we got wed practice for that every week
Today's the day....I finally put up 300lbs on bench press!
Other than that it was a pretty uneventful time. My lifts have gone up slightly I worked up to 325 doing 5x5s on squat and 235x4 (failed on the 5th) for powerclean. I've never put up 300 on bench though so I'm pretty excited about that.
i cleaned for real today for the first time, i started with the bar and worked my way up to 185, what is a good goal for me?
Back when I was in high school the big boys and lbs would put up (ballpark) 225-250ish. Maybe one person got 265 or so. Powerclean is one of those lifts that are super beneficial (fun even) if you use correct form. If you've never done them before though, worry more about using a weight that you can handle correctly, rather than how many plates you can lift.
yupppers, thats why i started with the bar abd went untill the form was going somewhat, its going to be a main theme of my workouts
It's one of the most beneficial lifts for football. But it can be hard to find your sweet spot because (for me at least) I feel my form goes to sh*t when I go too light. keep up the hard work big guy
had to do a quick wirkout today, i had a national honor society meeting afterschool, had to stay late becausei got elected treasurer
