Interested to see how the Cube works for you...
Nice, nice. I'm going to start incorporating them ASAP.Originally Posted by herderdude
Thanks man. Been loving it so far. Every workout is different and challenging.Originally Posted by jem6702
Heading to the gym soon for a lil LISS cardio, foam rolling, stretching, and abs.
Works got me burning too many cals. Woke up at 199. Very frustrating. Also could be the erase drying me out.
Nice. I can post vids now. Going to get a video of me deadlifting Friday to see where you guys think I need improvement.
Edit: Hell maybe even tmrw. It's only explosive bench, but I'm sure you guys can point something out.
Cube is awesome.
Any idea why it keeps saying it can't publish my video on youtube?
It could be video size. iPhone?
Yeah. The videos only 20 sec tops.
I have to upload directly from the photo app, I transfer from iMovie to the camera roll.
3 hours later, I think I've got it figured out.
Week 3: Day 2- explosive bench
Bench: 8x3- 205
Incline DB: 3x15- 70
V-bar press downs: 1x100- 60
Standing DB military: 3x10 50
Pec Dec: 3x15- 140
After watching I saw that I didn't hold my air. I tried to get the video on one of my last sets, where i thought form would somewhat breakdown. Otherwise, this session felt great. Tri's were sauced.
Note: you guys see anything erroneous?
Form looked good. My only critique would be bar speed. Explosive bench, brotha...explode that weight off your chest. I might overemphasize it when I bench, but I really like to see explosive reps on E day.
Also...turn the phone sideways!
Yeah, looked slow to me as well. First 6 sets felt faster. Also, just started this explosive training stuff and actually pausing on the chest. I'll get better at it.
I'll inform my lifting partner about the sideways view. Lol.
Yeah, man. Form looked tight, just get faster. Apply 400lbs of force to that 200lb barbell. And keep your air until you lock it out, like you already noticed. Also, your feet might have been a little far back. Your shins were almost parallel to the floor. Make sure you're pushing through your heels the whole time.
Thanks for the advice fellas. Def going to work on keeping my air, driving through my heels, and moving the bar faster.
I've never video'd myself some I'm curious how my form will change when I get over 300#.
Damn. My lifting partner, I guess got a video of me pulling 495 a while back. Looks bad ha. I pretty much SL deadlifted that shiet.
That's the first time I've ever heard a noise like that come out of me BTW.
