right, it's all about the posterior chainOriginally Posted by Beelzebub
It's my goal to someday hit a 600lb good morning That'd be fooking sick.
ex, i remember quite a while ago you had said something about 'no need to do deads regularly and they kept going up'. is that still working out for you? hoping that doing hypers and good mornings will shoot my dead up without doing em. everytime i do them on a regular basis, something goes wrong. what say you?
beelze you've really gotta find a way to start doing GHR .. nothing has helped my dead and squat more
does your gym have a seated calf raise with a fairly large seat?
After Glen told me about those I do them all the time. To make it even higher off the ground I add 2 cardio step things on top of the seat.
with ghrs they get harder when your feet go up higher than your knees.
The fact that you have problems with deadlifts and getting injured just means you have a weak core bro. No other cause... Do more hardcore ab/core work such as extreme incline situps with heavy ass dumbells for low reps (you should be able to do these with a 50lb dumbell for at least 10 reps, a 60 or 70lb dumbell would be even better). Also, situps on a swiss ball with a 45lb plate for 20-30 reps, russian twists with a 45lb plate or a heavy ass dumbell and side bends with a heavy ass dumbell (ideally 100-140lbs for 10+ reps).Originally Posted by Beelzebub
Edit: yeah you do good mornings, lol. not awake yet
Truthfully though, deadlifts are an exercise you can do maybe once a month and still make decent progress, esp if you do box squats and good mornings.
exnihilo hit the nail on the head. when i started training with exmgq he said we're going to hit your posterior and abs hard, 2xs a week, if you have a weak core then everything else suffers.
4/21 - chest/delts/tri's/back
well, not quite all that....
(2) 40's x 10
60's x 10
90's x 8
125's x 5
175's x 1.....pull (awesome, doesn't even phase me anymore, damn near funny, going for the record this year)
time for a bionic chest buddy
eh, at least i get stronger between each injury.
must be a very minor pull. was able to do a 45 degree pushup this morning which took me over a week last time. may switch back to some TUT pec training from now on though.
I wish you a speedy recovery in any event lil' buddy.
beelze, ever go to a doctor about it?
PCT Ubiquitos, lol.
guy, no docs required to tell me i have a pull. i should have gone for the first injury in 2003 but didn't. i was out of commission for 3 months with that one, i suspect it was a minor tear. this one isn't serious at all. something about my chest that doesn't like heavy weight.
maybe it just doesn't like constant PR's and repping out big weight to a freakish degree, brobro.
Alas, who am I but an emotionally chaotic bundle of sporadic thoughts and fluctuating hormones. I need my blankie.
ps true GHR's are gnarly hammy obliterators. Tried 'em for my first time today.
well, yeah, that could be it too but it'll just have to adjust cuz it ain't gettin' lighter any time soon. you'll be ok bro, sounds like clomid is taking over, lol. yeah, i've seen those GHR's, they look badass but our gym just doesn't have em. perhaps, i can conjure up some sort of invention with ducttape and broomsticks again.Originally Posted by Ubiquitous
OMFG! Not the duct tape and broomstick again! I am just starting to be able to walk normal.Originally Posted by Beelzebub

all you need is a seated calf machine with a big seat for GHRs
