Re: pulling vs pushing exercises balance

What are you trying to accomplish with this routine, specifically? Because it's not balanced, and I doubt you'd be able to achieve balance without overhauling it completely. And do you need balance? Maybe you need imbalance to correct imbalances? If you outline your goals and challenges, we can prob...

Re: Program question

More volume and Olympic lifts. Why not just one? If you want to learn the Olympic lifts, really learn them, dump everything else and do something like Dan John's beginner Olympic lifting program. If you want more volume, pick up a German volume program. I think herein lies the problem with knowing a...

Re: Hip Imbalances

I'd still recommend seeing a professional who can properly diagnose it if it's that painful.

Barring that, give Eric Cressey's Neanderthal No More program a whirl. It might help.

Re: Hip Imbalances

The commonly tight structures that act on the hip are the hip flexors (quads and illiopsoas), adductors, piriformis, and IT band. Commonly weak structures are glutes, hamstrings (note: a lot of perceived hamstring tightness is caused by an anterior pelvic tilt) and abductors. Stretch tight, strength...

Re: Shoulder Surgery

That implies that you have done at least 1, and that at least 1 patient died. Hmmm. Do the local authorities know about you? God bless the good samaritan law! The good samaritan law requires you to use proper first aid principles. I don't think surgery is in there. This sounds too much like a Dexte...

Re: What I Learned About Shoulders

No matter how much you train them and how strong they get, your infra or teres can't overpower muscles like the pec minor or the biceps if they're drawing the humeral head anteriorly. Since strength training causes hypertrophy in tendons, excess rotator cuff training can actually exacerbate impingem...

Re: Hip Imbalances

Piriformis syndrome/pain becomes inevitable when the piriformis increases in size by ~40%. When the hip flexors become overly dominant (see #1 in conjunction with modern lifestyles' emphasis on hip and shoulder flexion) the gluteals shut down and other structures take on the brunt of hip extension/r...

Re: Form checks

Try releasing your piriformis, might help with the corkscrewing. Also try reversing the mixed grip, see if it still happens.

Re: exercise for cutting and knee problem

patellofemoral exercises aren't really a thing. Patellofemoral just means "of the kneecap/femur" so you can have a patellofemoral tendon, you can have patellofemoral pain syndrome, patellofemoral arthritis, and so forth. I would suggest looking at foam rolling/mobilizing commonly tight structures th...

Re: Rotator Cuff after 4 weeks of rehab exercises

You hear a lot about rotator cuff problems because they're the catch-all for shoulder problems. 1/3 of the adult and over 1/2 of the senior population is walking around with an asymptomatic rotator cuff tear (if I'm not misremembering the values). I think rotator cuff pathologies have become so "con...

I got stuck in my t shirt tonight after the gym. Took me half a dozen attempts to get it off. Pretty embarrassing Sign of a good work out!

Re: Personal Best Log

Here's a video of me getting my ass kicked by the "medicine route" grip obstacle course at the parkour gym. In my defense, you can see how much my stupid shoes are slipping on the wall, and this was at the end of the training session. I'm doing 6 weeks of training with the fat gripz, I'll give the r...
