    Don't you mean longer than a 30 second walk? When I was flipping the tire the other day, the kid at the desk brought out a big sledge.

    "Got you this if you wanted to hit the tire."

    "...nope."

    I must look like a Crossfitter.

  4. It was by weight. I'll look around around later man. Get the one with the white trim. The other one had fairly longer legs.

  5. The metal singlet on EliteFTS has a size chart. It is pretty much the same price and looks like HOP is out of my size if it is the same. Thanks anyways brochacho.

    EDIT: NM a back order message came up. ****!

  6. I ordered a size smaller than the Metal singlet chart said and I may just be too skinny or lean but it was still loose around the belly. Fit was a little weird but it was the right length.

    They are out of XL which is what size it said I should be. I never thought getting a singlet would be a pain in the ass. I thought when it wedges would be lol

  12. Are you ever going to chase a BG 1.5 miles? No. You're going to shoot him in his stupid terrorist face.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  13. I was excited they found that ******* on a boat, considering I run response boats in the local area. Then I found out it was in a shed.

    The only running I do is from the building and 50 yards to the boats..

    The way to avoid singlet wedgies is to jack up the thighs really high and pull the straps only barely high enough to get over your shoulders. Also, when you're not in your flight, wear them under your pants straps down.

    Makes life easier. Trust me, I've spent at least 1000 hours in a singlet in my life.

  18. Cube Method W2 DE Deadlift

    Deadlift
    315x3x8 (~60%)

    Snatch Grip Block Pulls (2 stacked 45's) 265x12x3 (~50%)

    Front Squats
    225x8
    245x8
    265x8

    Barbell Shrugs
    225x15x2
    225x12

    Banded Pulldowns
    (2)Orangex12x4

    What a crap day. I switched from SSv2 to Recompadrol this last week and it's ****ed my stomach up. I was nauseous and stomach felt fked the whole workout but I manned up and did it. My glutes were rocked from those snatch grips and those are the heaviest front squats I've done I believe. Theyre difficult for me because i have a busted up clavicle that sticks out so the bar doesnt rest perfecty even. I went directly from the Cube book for this session in including the shrugs and Pulldowns. I'll floor press for reps tomorrow, a supplemental lift, close grip and some shoulder work.

    Videos to come.

    They help with lockout and sticking points. I'm still getting used to them myself. Brandon Lilly (writer of the Cube) rotates board press, floor press, and flat bench; regardless of effort movement it is (heavy, explosive, repetition)

    It's a strictly upper body exercise, where as with bench press you use whole body (leg drive). You lower the bar until your triceps are briefly rested on the ground, which makes it that much harder. It can be used as a main movement exercise, or as a supplemental variation. Floor press, floor press with chains, close grip floor press, ect. It also takes a lot of stress off the shoulders because of the decreased ROM.

    If/when you start 5/3/1, do your 5/3/1 bench press, and you could use the floor press as a supplemental lift.

    I've seen a few threads on here about the floor press where more educated members have chimes in haha

    In regards to benching, I understand the form and method used with powerlifting and how it's all about planting the traps, making sure the shoulders are pulled back, using your lats to pull the bar off and down, and the legs are your driving force for the lift but what happens when you decide to switch it up and do flat DB presses do you get into that position and have someone hand you the weights or do you just resume more of a bodybuilding position and do you standard back flat and elbows out?

    Second question, in regards to shoulder exercises I have never tried face pulls and will be incorporating them into my routine now and they certainly seem simplistic but what I'm confused about is where you place the swivel on the opposite side that holds the cable, do you keep it at a setting directly across from your face or positioned slightly above or lower?
    1) I kick up my own dumbells when doing flat or decline presses. With flat DB, I actually get positioned back on my traps and have what, to me, resembles flawless bench press position, which really pisses me off because I sometimes struggle with that doing barbell bench. The difference is with barbell I try to get my the biggest arch possible and as much air into my belly as possible. I don't have an obnoxious arch doing DB, but it's natural, I'm on my traps, and my feet are planted. That's all IMO at least.

    2) Youtube and go to the Elite FTS training page. I think I get slightly above my face as I have a slight back lean. Also check out seated DB cleans for upper back/delts. Dave Tate has a very simple explanation on how to do it if you google that.

    And he cusses.

    I just regurgitate what I learned from others and what I've read.

    They both make me nauseous and tear up my stomach. I had to stop taking them both.
