Re: Hook Grip and Deadlifts

There is no reason to suggest that the hook grip has any special efficacy for the deadlifter as compared to the alternated or "mixed" grip. Hook Grip versus Alternate Grip for Deadlifts I agree with the article that weightlifters use hook grip because it's more secure (and not stronger), especially...

Re: Hook Grip and Deadlifts

BTW you could tape your thumb and see if it reduces the pain. Weightlifters often do this:

Re: Atherosclerosis

Your LDLs are very probably pattern A. It is extremely unlikely to see trigs as low as yours with pattern B. This is interesting, stu, and I hope that you're right. BTW what does low trig number signify? That I have good fat metabolism for example? I already take fish oil (300mg EPA and 200mg DHA p...

Re: Atherosclerosis

I'm trying to understand the correlation of diet, cholesterol, and fat with coronary heart disease (my father got an angina once) and apparently it boils down to atherosclerosis. BTW I just checked my blood lipids (basal) and the result is: total cholesterol: 202 (<200) LDL: 165 (<130) HDL: 31 (31-6...

Maybe you could test your androgen and thyroid levels? Just a suggestion.

Atherosclerosis

From what I've gathered, the mechanism of atherosclerosis is apparently quite clear but there may be more than what have been known and I hope that you could fill me in. First, I'd like to check if my knowledge about the mechanism is correct. There are 5 types of fat-transporting lipoproteins, namel...

Re: The Perfect Storm

@clip: barely understood the wikipedia entry on glenoid labrum. How do such injuries occur? I'm going to ask about other programs in a different thread. Hi Ken, Perhaps you can read about SLAP tear/lesion because from what I know, it's where labral tear normally occurs: SLAP tear: http://www.should...

Re: A hypothetical program

But Kenny, the AM/PM workouts in my program are actually one day workouts, each split into two. That what a "Two A Day" is...two training sessions in one day. Kenny What I'm trying to say is, from your earlier post, it seems that you suggested that training in the AM/PM can be hard for people, whil...

Re: A hypothetical program

"Freaking Your Own Mind Out" Albert Beckles (bodybuilding ledgend) once stated that training heavy too much not only burns out your body but it burn out your mind. That is one of the problems with "Two A Day". Especially, when you have to work for a living. It mentally and emotionally wears on you....

Re: A hypothetical program

The "45 minutes" is just a rough estimation based on warming up + the main exercise itself, and actually the exercises are made so that each workout lasts no more than 45 mins, preferably less.

Yeah, you're right that most people probably wouldn't bother to go to the gym twice a day.

Re: A hypothetical program

Well, actually it was inspired by the Bulgarian weightlifting program and by one program "this person that I know" made. As for the relation of recovery between each workout, I wrote the sets/reps range so people (and me) can judge if it's doable or not. Another reason for the "split" is because it'...

Re: A hypothetical program

What's your target audience and what effect are you trying to achieve by breaking it up this way? It's a general fitness program with a bias to power development. Ideally it should be done with a little nap in between the AM/PM workouts to maximize your performance in each workout and probably the ...

A hypothetical program

I've been thinking about creating a program that's based on AM/PM workouts (twice a day) to maximize the body response/adaptation to exercise (whatever that means). Each workout should last 45 minutes or preferably less. MONDAY: AM: Power Snatch: bar/2x5/4/3/2/5x1 PM: Back Squat: work up to a (daily...
