I'm really just doing my physio stuff, which is aimed at improving abduction and strengthening the lower abdominals/groin.I don’t know what you are doing for mobility, but look up Donnie Thompson’s protocol for ankle mobility - freeing those babies up some could further help your depth.
Also, a cue that can help me get a bit more depth is trying to focus a little more on pushing the knees out to let the hips descend through them vs thinking about sitting the hips back.
Yep, feeling great! Had an epic back pump from those deads this morning - haven't felt that for a long time!Bet it’s feeling good to be back on the upswing eh? What anabolic endeavors are you thinking about taking on in 2020?
Best decision I’ve made in a long while, and I’m 34. Recover like a damn teenager again lol.Yep, feeling great! Had an epic back pump from those deads this morning - haven't felt that for a long time!
PEDs-wise, I'm not sure right now. I have a lot on my plate with work atm and I don't want to affect my mental state right now so I can't imagine running anything. Also, I am waiting for blood work to come back to see how my test levels are. Thinking about just going on TRT - mate of mine has done it and raves about it, not just the physical aspects but also the psychological lift. He's a bit older though, so I would like to wait.
You’re self-administering, right?Best decision I’ve made in a long while, and I’m 34. Recover like a damn teenager again lol.
Yep. I broke it up into 4 pins per week at 200 mg total/week. 2x per week had meYou’re self-administering, right?
I am really looking forward to it in coming years. My last cycle was first with test and at 300 per week I was just doing weekly pins with no issue at all. Never was it inconvenient at just once every Sunday; I could easily do that forever. I was sad to stop them the last 2 weeks while ester cleared. I think the guys that get sick of pinning are these prop/ace guys doing daily shots. No surprise they get sick of that lol. Plus you could switch to something like Nebido or Trest dec and take a shot every 3 weeks if you really get sick of pinning.
Clint Darden said in his new Youtube Q&A vids the most test he’s ever taken was nearly 4g per WEEK, which he said was absolutely awful and wasn’t worth it remotely. But he set his absolute best numbers on 375mg Sustanon & 300mg EQ pinned just once EVERY 3 WEEKS! When he pulled 821, boxsquat 957, benched 462.
Up until about 4-6 months ago I was fine pinning everything 1-2x week now 2 is bare minimum, I try to go every 2-3 days with long esters nowYep. I broke it up into 4 pins per week at 200 mg total/week. 2x per week had me
Like a roller coaster and have bad breakouts on shoulders. I think @Smont had a similar issue even with long esters and had to pin less, more frequently. It worked for me. I’m curious to give test undec a soon when back in cruise mode. I did notice a decent improvement in physical performance when I was pinning 4x/week on cruise.
4 grams a week sounds like hell lol
So far they have shut down public events with 500 people or more, and quarantine for everyone entering the country. We have 454 cases so far with 9 deaths. Can still go to the gym, but probably not after Friday, which will suck!Anything changing down in Oceana with the spreading of this coronavirus?
Yeah our gym is a warehouse and it’s private, mainly for the owner to train high school athletes, so he’s staying open until they threaten him with a felony. But it’s also pretty unmarked and people don’t really even notice it or know it’s there, and we have a key so even if he has to close his training we can probably still come in and sneak some lifting since there’s such a small number of us.How bout you mate, do have somewhere to train still?
Nice pulls! That’s still sumo - Ed Coan was famous for pulling rather close for sumo like that. He did alright
You actually don’t want to sit “down” at all - you want your hips absolutely as high as possible to start the lift, and you did a great job of that. What you do want to emphasize more is trying to bring them closer to the bar. How do you get the hips closer without lowering them? You have to forcefully wedge them in tighter, which will have you turning your chest up higher than a conventional pull at the point the bar is beginning to break the floor.
Youtube great sumo pullers like Chris Duffin, Cailer Woolam, Yuri Belkin, and watch them at 0.5x playback speed if you want to see how the best in the world do it.
Thanks for the feedback fellas! You are right my hips are too low at the start, and are shifting up before the bar leaves the ground. Got to focus on finding that super-tight position, the same way I do with conventional. I always thought of sumo deadlift as kind of a squat pull, but thinking about it this way has me searching for the worng start position.Subbed!
Agreed w/ Hyde. Hips should be high, but not stiff-legged. Super low hips will always shoot up because the vast majority of us can't get our hips low AND close. Even with high hips-if they aren't close to the bar, they'll shoot up. I try to make myself "as tall" as possible when I setup to the bar. I dunno how else to describe it, it makes sense in my head lmfao
Great log, man!
