Both things I had to work on for over a year at least; most people do it seems.And Hyde, yah, he talks about in the video i pressed a few pages back. I'm just having difficulty going knees out vs forward, continuing to work on it. Ill work on the elbows too, thanks for the critique.
True. When i was sitting around 240 i was still able to hit 345-350 pretty much any day so it seems like anything under 240 and my bench really takes a dive. Good to know going forward. I am gonna start trying to gain weight again...thinking on the scale of like 1-2lbs/month of ideally 95% lean tissue. I will be without a gym for 5 weeks in mid October to early November when in New Mexico, so im thinking ill just "bulk" very slowly and meticulously until then. At that point I'm thinking ill have 3-4 days of bw training and whatever i can do with my bowflex dbs that go up to 52.5 lbs and my variety of bands. Should be a good 5 week period for me since i havent taken time off from the powerlifts in years. As Mike T would call it, a "restoration block" of sorts.Only 10% off at least, and you’re lighter now so not so shocking. Impressive Spotos for real
Most definitely. Some time truly deloading the spine from barbell movements and just working on gpp for 5 weeks actually sounds like itd be kind of fun for a couple of weeks if not the whole 5. But thats kind of the point. Let your body deload those patterns youve been doing day in day out for years on end and work on some gpp and other aspects of health. I have no doubt that ill be able to get creative enough to still use appropriate loading for basically every core movement pattern through the combination of those dbs and the bands i have since ill be keeping reps to no less than 8-10. I have no clue where im going to be staying so hopefully there will be somewhere for chins, that'd obviously be ideal although not completely necessary. Im sureI just had a forced upper body restoration block; it ain’t that bad As long as you stay active like you’re saying, it will be great for you. You can do a lot of things with a pair of 50lb dbs and some bands. Lunges, band gm/Db RDL combo, rows, ohp, floor press, flyes, tricep extensions, curls, standing calves. If you have a way to do chins or dips you can flat out strength train the upper body with a 50lb db even.
Be careful or you could come back more beat up lol
Id still like to stave it off as long as possible or do all that i can to prevent it altogether, regardless of how common it is. Fuckin biceps tendons.I think that’s the only reason I made it as long as I did, the hammers over the last few years. Just found out another friend had his repaired like a month ago. It’s just super common, in a very injurious sport no less. But it is merely a speed bump; nothing career-ending. At least 2 giants competitors I know hit 400lb logpresses only 6 months post op.
Jessica always wears lifters when overhead pressing, and it’s the one movement I like a touch of heel as well.
All the good GDAs I have used just do bioperine like you mentioned, and they all have an obvious physical efficacy as is so I go with that.True dat, homie. Btw, i read that berberine article you posted in DC's log. I had known that it had been compared to metformin and found to be as effective in lowering BS, but was unaware of the other benefits. Just picked up two bottles from Noots Depot. Do you know of any ways to enhance absorption? That study reported overall pretty shitty oral absorption capabilities.
Edit: i plan on taking it at the same time as I take my circumin which i take bioperine with for. But have you heard of anything else? It may not necessarily matter but one of the studies quoted in that review was using parenteral berberine not oral.
Thanks bro. How has your training been going? Back doing better?Hell of an overhead!
Sort of just happened that way, i had no intention to split jerk it but whatever works i guess. Im gonna keep riding out this progress on the lot for another 12 weeks then maybe ill switch to the axle to mix it up. Still have a lot of technical flaws to clean up with the log though.That reverse split jerk tho! Nice work man, big time progress in 3 months for sure. Close grip benching after Log is always really tough.
Does it feel good to be overhead pressing over bodyweight??
almost back on track...waiting on the date to be released for an October meet, so I can plan accordingly...done with TnG Deads, as I really think that, added to not listening to my body, eventually led to the setback.Thanks bro. How has your training been going? Back doing better?
Good to hear, man. I put a lot of the blame for my early back issues on overzealous T&G deads as well, im of the opinion its just way to easy to lose focus on your wedge when you just get plowing through reps t&g. Not to mention its also easier to push for a few extra reps with bad form. But, it sounds like you're about fully back in action, learned something about yourself and your training needs from it, and didnt have to eat the cash for the meet so it may end up not being too bad of a thing in the long run.almost back on track...waiting on the date to be released for an October meet, so I can plan accordingly...done with TnG Deads, as I really think that, added to not listening to my body, eventually led to the setback.
I always use sleeves for strongman overhead - you will always be allowed to use them in a contest, and a good pair of neoprene will keep you safer and maybe help lift more. I use the black Cerberus often. Not since I have come back this last month, but that’s because my work weights have been so light.Do any of you guys use a set of single or double ply elbow sleeves for overhead pressing? Been thinking about picking up a pair at some point lately, not to use for every training session but for the ME sessions that call to work up to a 1-3rm. Just to keep the elbows warm and maybe get an extra 15-20lbs (i think thats about all theyre good for if memory serves me right).
One of the xfit trainers essentially said the same thing. Id much, much rather do this than (try to) run a mile.As Jim would say, “groce”
Just say no. To cardio.One of the xfit trainers essentially said the same thing. Id much, much rather do this than (try to) run a mile.
Speaking of which, the box is doing their annual Murph WOD fundraiser this Sunday. I was asking one of the trainers what time it was all goin down so i could wiggle some training in at some point and he was like "you should come do it, itll be fun". Phhhhhhhhhh....the workout is:
1 mile run
100 "pull ups" -> kipping counts im sure.
200 push ups
300 air squats
1 mile run
I simply laughed and said "yahhhh...no chance". I havent run a fuggin mile in years. Tried going for a jog last year and made it a quarter mile from my house, turned around and walked back
