  1. nyc, how do you hold the bar? there are 2 highly used ways of holding the bar on a front squat...

    1. crossed, kinda like you're doing a crunch
    2. as if you had just cleaned the bar...

    One might be easier than the other for you. 2 would probably be easiest for balance.

  3. I personally like the hang-clean method for holding it. Stick your elbows forward and the bar rests perfectly across your upper chest and shoulders. The guy I train with prefers the arms crossed method. To each his own I guess.

    I'm going to PM you some shtuff.

    In all honesty, I prefer front squats to conventional ones with regards to overall comfort in doing them.

  4. Exactly...I prefer doing them with my arms crossed...the bar seems to fit into a divot in my delts perfectly.

  5. Shoulders.

    Snatches: 145*3
    DB Military Press: 70*9
    Cable Side Lateral Raise: 60*7
    DB Rear Delt Raise: 20*12 (hold at the top for a few seconds)
    Leg Press Calf Raise: 560*13
    Wrist Curls in Front: 115*13
    Decline Russian Twist: 35*14

    Whew, the negatives were killer today, gave me some wicked pumped-action.

  6. I'm curious on what the decline russian twist is?

  7. I'm sitting on one of those declines, like someone about to do decline crunches with a plate. I'm about halfway up in the crunching ROM. Holding the plate straight out in front of me, I twist my shoulders from side to side.

    Imagine this, except I'm on an decline/incline (whichever way you're looking at it), I'm holding a weight, and I'm much better looking :P

    No offense, but watching Wizz-Ra do the Russian Twist is a but unappealing to the eye... he's much sexier doing squats and cardio.... LMFAO!

    I was so scared to scroll down and see the answer to this....

  11. You have any pics hotboy?

    I don't think I have ever seen your build...great lifts for your weight tho..very nice.

  12. Cardio & Cake day

    Did HIIT for about 10 minutes to start off the workout
    40-60s intervals of 11mph @ 5% gradient for the first half and intervals of 9mph @ 10% gradient for the second half.

    Afterwards (of course) I done jumped dat dere rope, but I didn't take any dat dere cell-tech, though.

  13. Is today your birthday? If so Happy Birthday!

  14. but what if I don't want to wish you a happy birthday?

  15. In that case....HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

    [let's please not flood this thread with Happy Birthday Posts. Unless otherwise specified, I will assume you wish me a happy birthday.]

    haha I thought I did the pimping around here bro...

  19. Back, Biceps, and Watching Hot Chicks do Cardio

    Deadlift: 350*6
    Weighted Pullups: 55*6
    Standing DB Rows: 85*6
    Peacher Curls: 100*7
    Seaed Calf Raise: 210*10
    Decline Crunches: 35*13
    Behind the back wrist curls: 205*12

    **All sets were done with a 5+ seconds eccentric phase and I am paying the consequences **

    Thursdays are the big night for goin' out drinkin' so it seems to be that a lot of the ladies who go out that day seem to do some extra cardio in the morning in attempt to compensate for the empty drinkin' calories. I can't say that I approve of this, but it sure is fun to watch

    Bodyweight today: 187.5lbs Woo Woo, the sintrain is a chuggin!
