Re: Dave Tate's The Vault

Wendler's advice is generally top notch AFAICT, just skip the colorful bits if you don't find em funny :wink: BTW if you read some articles of Rip's over at T-Nation you'll see the style he uses over there and Wendler's aren't entire worlds apart, although Rip's still more detailed.

Re: C25K Program?

Does anyone here have knowledge/experience/criticism of this program? It's always good to see other people's opinions on things :la: Partially unrelated, I have eyed your BW while skimming the random crap thread and if you want to do cardio to accelerate fat loss, I would keep walking in mind.

Re: Deadlift form check

Wendler also says you should sort of lean back (I can't remember the exact words, but basically shift the weight towards the heels) after the bar leaves the ground, so I guess that could be it.

Re: Random crap

Add a little speculative investment into laundered junk stocks, basically gold-plated turds, and you end up with a giant CF. It boils down to greed and stupidity. Still, I had a glimpse of hope that S&P downgrading the US debt would be the proverbial last drop and Obama would order tanks and bomber...

Re: A Proper Warm-Up?

I generally find that: too much intensity (sets and/or weight) while warming up hampers performance on the work sets. Different lifts have slightly different warm up requirements. It's all about striking a balance between moving enough poundage and not moving too much. In short, it's tricky. What se...

Re: Shoulders and Back during deadlift descent

Check if you're starting the movement at the knees instead of the hips.
