I'm going to try mine as far toward my shoulders as possible next time, so that I actually do some work instead of having my equipment bench 405 and me just hold the weight.
    I think mine is broke bc it doesn't lift close to 405 for me. I'm sending it back nao!

  11. Hey man, if you're not doing side bends with the biggest dumbbell you can find and standing ab wheel or standing cable crunches at ~75% BW, you're missing out on better squats and deadlifts.

    Look at KK. He does the ab wheel with a 50kg plate on his back!

    I do abs, but I'm anti-flexion. I think they're hell on the spine.

    I'm not going to argue with anything Louie thinks, but I disagree with some of those. I firmly believe that flexion is unnecessary to strong core training, and in some instances detrimental. I follow some spine experts, kinesiologists, and trainers who feel that way, and my own experience has formed my stance.

    I don't say anything with flexion doesn't work, because it does. However, from an optimal spine health standpoint I feel there are better protocols.

    Fair enough. Now that I'm incorporating loaded carries, I think that they are probably the best core builders. I don't like planks, because I don't like staying on one place for too long or "feeling the burn", but the wheel is an isometric abdominal stability thing more than flexion or extension.

    Also, I don't take Louie's word as gospel anymore. His knowledge is phenomenal, but he's not the only show in town anymore.

  21. Yeah I like the ab wheel...I have to do it from my knees cuz I'm not strong like bull, but it's good sh!t.

  22. There's one at the gym that has a spring-loaded mechanism that makes it easier to do from your feet. I wanna be this strong one day:

    But that's Chris Duffin. He's about as strong as it gets.

  24. Hey Sean. I haven't been on AM in a while, not like I used to anyways, but I'm glad to hear about your success at your first meet and your next steps in this powerlifting journey. I'm sure you could easily add 100lbs to your total. Of course, doing that while dropping weight is where the challenge is at, but you got it. I'll continue to check in to see where you're at.

    And hey, I actually worked up to sets of 12-15 on that wheel of death! lol It's definitely hard, though.

  27. I think I broke the assistance mechanism of mine at the gym. I think the designers didn't expect them to be used for feats of hardcore badassery. EFS has one, or you could stuff a pipe through the axle of a wheelbarrow wheel.

    Fixed barbells work pretty well as well, as they're the same height off the floor but also allow you to use a wider grip. I started doing it with that since the narrow grip on the wheel aggravated some tendonitis.

    That's what I was about to say. 45lb or cambered bar with 10's on each side works great!

    I may have to give this a try Thursday.
