Foot arch difference

So I've never really had problems with my foot arch in the past or at least nothing that I could feel like their was a difference, but lately its been kind of awkward. One of my foot arches feels slightly higher than the other one and so I did the paper bag/wet foot test on both and there was a noti...

So I'll make this clear. I guess I was organizing my thoughts and made it difficult to understand what I was trying to explain. I originally trained days a week (3x3hrs cardio and 3x3hrs weights), now I want to switch to 5 days a week (3x3hrs cardio and 2x1.5hrs weights). I would always add 500 calo...

Bulking on 2 day Total body workout

Does the 500+ calorie each day (even off days) apply if you only lift twice a week? As of right now, I lift three times a week, but am switching over to twice a week, so I can focus more on the cardio I need for my training on the other days. I've been eating an extra 500 calories on top of my diet ...

Thanks, definitely understand that now from that article. Still, doing 5, 3, and 1 on the final week worries me. Isn't it easy to damage say your rotator cuff or screw your back up with deadlifts, doing 1-2 of close to one rep max (90% of 95%)?

pdellorto - Thanks, I took a look at those websites. I agree, I don't really like some of the conditioning we do in class. Mostly because of the age difference, we can't really focus on everyones abilities. Occasionally during JJ we work on speed break falls and seeing how many times we can throw so...

pdellorto - I've read your logs and some of your posts, was hoping you'd respond to this! I've been weight lifting for the past couple years, but all its been its just building strength and the past couple months I've been incorporating the swiss ball and balance board, but I feel like those will ta...

jml - The thing is, I'm trying to improve in areas such as balance and I'm wondering if it would be better to do with weights or just body weight? For example, when I do shoulder press on a balance board, I really feel my core working hard to keep me leveled. Than again, I'm not really improving my ...

Forearm and Grip - Eagle's Claw

Hello everyone, I was looking for some good exercise to do at home, without weights or at a desk to improve my grip/forearm strength. I looked into Gripmaster and thought about using rubber bands to even out the forearms, but I also came across the Eagle's Claw http://www.pro-xsports.com/images/prod...

Martial Arts - Weight Training

Hello everyone, I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out or point me in the right direction when it comes to weight lifting to improve my martial arts (years of training in Taekwondo and now possibly Muay Thai in the near future). Most of my weight training has consisted of compound workouts w...

Jungledoc - I understand, I'm just a little surprised is all. I appreciate your help though, this has made me think twice about all those sorts of stretches. Its just that when I use to have problems with my back, I was told to stretch the back each day, but like you said, the whole view is beginnin...

You should avoid any stretching into extension or flexion or rotation, and any loaded exercise that involves any of those movements. So your saying it could do more harm than good to do stretches like the 3 positions of a cat stretch and the pretzel one (I got the name from this site, its just putt...

Jungledoc - The thing about SLDL is that I've done them with 8x100lbs with both legs and 20x10lbs single and I still get the same type of pain the next day. I wouldn't mind good mornings, I just don't always have someone to spot me and I don't want to lose form the last rep if I can't finish it for ...

Nevage - Good mornings are definitely something I would never try, especially since the weight to it is limited and if something goes wrong, then so does my back for sure. Sleep/food I definitely have down, just might be over doing it. ApolytonGP - I was just looking at the knee cable flexions this ...

Targeting different parts of your HAMSTRING

I do other sports other than bodybuilding that involve running. Whenever I do stiff-leg deadlifts, I can barely walk the next day due to the intense stretch I get from them. Instead I do hamstring curls (target lower hamstrings) and long lunges past 90 degrees (target upper hamstrings). Can I evenly...
