My shoulders feel fantastic, knock on wood. I haven't been able to do dips on years. Although, pin press didn't feel fantastic, so I won't be doing those again.How are shoulders after that? Seems like your bench is coming back pretty strong if you can tolerate all those doubles over 200 again!
Man, I appreciate that response. That's definitely where I went wrong. I should have viewed it as an "isohold" how you mentioned. I got too loose and had to muscle through it. I'll give it 2 weeks and try again as round that time next cycle.Ive found that with pin press its very very important to stay tight on the pins and be very very cognizant of not letting the bar slide out of your normal groove when on the pins. The latter point is kinda self explanatory but for the former it’s basically just shy of an iso hold. Im starting to think that pin presses are what drove my bench increase a few years ago...all along i thought it was the cg work, but after working cg for the better half of the last year without seeing much for carryover (although i haven’t necessarily been super focused on my bench, either) I’m starting to think it was the pin work.
Might wanna give it a few weeks and try again if you felt like either of those two things were an issue for you today, but if not then fuk em - not right for you.
That's where I got mine. I just now looked and they have 2 left in stock.Almost grabbed a few bottles of Noxygen off Amzn a right before the Virus outbreak, they had it for pretty cheap.
Lmaooooo. Thats funny shît.“Like a normal person”...so you were trying to see how many Doritos you could fit in your mouth without choking?
That's an awesome idea.No exciting log updates. I'm doing the exact same thing I did last week but with an extra set and extra 5-10lbs with 2-3 reps in the tank. I'll update it all at the end of the week.
I had been doing my belt squats on a landmine attachment. Facing the opossite direction of the landmine, and straddling the bar, standing on these blocks. It was okay but I made a loading pin with some 1.5" pipe and a floor flange to try instead. The eyebolt will allow me up to 300lbs, which is plenty for a home setup. I have previously used the spud loading straps but they get wonky as **** with 45s on them.

Vaso blitz/full blitz is a great combo. Gets better over time also. I use oxygen daily also.Supplement recommendations? I'm running out of Noxygen. I'll probably buy more Peak02. I'm still using Green Mag. Something up the strength/endurance ally. Caffeinated or not.
Increased performance, yes. Just gathering some outside thoughts. I've been on my Thermotab kick for a while. Cheap as fuk on amazon. Good call on Focus XT, it's been a couple of years.What exactly are you looking for? Increased performance?
I have recently started adding 1/4tsp of Morton Lite Salt to my preWO drink in addition to the 1/4tsp I already use intra. So 300/300mg salt & potassium in me before I even begin warming up. Definitely has helped me feel more hydrated & prepared.
Focus XT has some good nootropic ingredients if you just want a baby energy drink level of caffeine but more focus. It’s very weak as a preWO though; more for work or stacked with more stims.
I have been adding 20mg preWO research grade Noopept on days I do the comp lifts for enhanced skill acquisition, and additionally adding a couple caps of Gainbusters Special Forces nootropic on lower body days for more focus.
Morton Lite Salt is a fraction of the price per serving, with way more potassium. It’s just not as portable.Increased performance, yes. Just gathering some outside thoughts. I've been on my Thermotab kick for a while. Cheap as fuk on amazon. Good call on Focus XT, it's been a couple of years.
