Re: 2011: Deadlifts, Grip and Presses Log Comments

I've been wondering why nobody writes in my log. Hey Wolf, I'd write in your log if, I had something to contribute! Noobs like me have a long way to go! BUT...I'll mention that since seeing your front squats (the ones without the blackouts!) and hearing about other members doing them - I've started...

Re: BD's discussionaire

Leaving these imbalances is only going to result in...imbalance! If your left arm falls two reps short of the right arm, try resting and then make up the reps in an additional set. Good luck with your goals! I like that advice! I'll definitely try that out...thanks man! No prob - just make sure you...

Hi BD - I'll leave the discussion about your overall program related to your goals of gaining mass to others more experienced than myself. My question - do you notice any imbalances?: Thursday One Arm Shoulder Press: R:[email protected] / L:[email protected] One Arm Upright Row: R:[email protected] / L:[email protected] Concentration Curl...

Re: barbell without knurling

Knurling will also stop the bar sliding on back squats.

My bar has a couple of types of knurling - I use the point where they change as a guide for distance between hands when benching (i.e. close grip, vs normal).

c2w1d4 12/11/11, 7pm, 25mins Went for a good 30 min jog/run prior - considering building up for a 10-15km run next year. Have done it before with good time, but I'll have to think about it - not great on the knees! As a result of the run, I didn't feel like doing anything except the squats. I'm stil...

Re: New workout

Diana, I like the look of that complex. I was about to put one together, but might just 'borrow' that setup and see how I go. With the OH presses, have you considered changing to a push press for a few weeks, just to knead out any psychological factors about the recent drop in weight? Congrats on yo...

Re: Healthy breakfast without increasing sugar levels

Omelette is my choice.

1. Fry up ham/bacon + your chosen veges (I normally go zucchinni, mushroom, tomato) + spices (chili flakes for me!)

2. Then add a couple of beaten eggs.

3. Once its set add some cottage cheese

4. ..........

5. Profit.

Re: For those doing 5/3/1 or maybe others similar situation

How dificult is it to be consistant when “leaving another rep in the tank” on your all out sets? Are you really tempted to beat or at least meet your last rep max at that weight? I get really focused on beating my last rep max, but only when I'm having a good session. For me, its either do the mini...
