Re: The DB complexes sticky...

Actually, the OP is correct. The site has been infected with malware, most probably because it uses/used a vulnerable version of WordPress, which is known for having terrible security vulnerabilities. If you run it through a malware scanner like this site you can get some (but not much) more informa...

Re: 5/3/1 and questions

I have been doing the program from that article for probably 5 months and it seems pretty good, but I had to drop the curls because it gave me a really bad case of forearmitus overtranius.

Re: Form Check, Hang High Pull n Press

I'm not sure about the full extension thing, but it I agree about the bar path - it seems as though the reverse curl movement is creeping in. Are you trying to shrug the bar? It doesn't look like your shoulders are coming up in the videos. You'll nail it with a bit more practice. Think about pulling...

Re: Resistance training for older age

There is a tiny bit of discussion about this in the 5/3/1 for power-lifting book (and I haven't seen it in any of the other editions?). I think it suggested training 2 days per week and doing accessory work by feel. Don't go out and buy it just for that, but if you're keen on that kind of program, i...

Re: V - Shaped Abs!

I'm a fan of that exercise too. Plus you can do some other cool variations with the wheel he's using, making it an even better investment: http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/Hamstrings/BWWheelLegCurl.html" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; http://www.exrx.net/WeightExercises/HipFlexors/...

Cressey is a name that gets thrown around here from time to time, and he's written some stuff on T-Nation arguing against the inclusion of the Upright Row: http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_repair/debunking_exercise_myths_part_ii" onclick="window.open(this....

Re: Quick exrx website question

The non-bold, non-italic exercises can (apparently) be considered as basic or auxiliary depending upon what other exercises they're programmed with.

5/3/1 2nd edition

I thought you guys might not know - Jim has released a new edition of the 5/3/1 book here . Since I must sound like some kind of incognito marketer, I suggest you don't buy it unless you are really keen. There isn't much new content, just some additions to the later chapters dealing with rest pause ...
