Fell off the wagon for a while (not the lifting wagon, just the posting wagon) and it has been a solid two months since I've last kept a journal but I've gotta get back in the habit so I can track progress better :). That being said I'll put up my workout stats from yesterday. Mood before workout: t...

I read somewhere that you should stretch something rediculous like 6 times a day...I don't stretch (like ironman I mean to but after a killer workout I'm exhausted and just want to go eat so I tend to skip the stretching) but I certainly am starting to feel the ill effects of not stretching (1 sever...

To add on to trillian's suggestion of lunges try multi-directional lunges (lunging 45 degrees off center, then center, center for other leg, and 45 the other way with other leg) \ | | / looks like that kinda. On leg days I do that I have trouble sitting to use the restroom my glutes are so sore. Als...

Anyone ever do any reading at t-nation.com? I spend a fair amount of time reading articles there when I run out of new material on these forums and I like a lot of the articles but as I'm not super experienced with exercise physiology or kinesiology I don't know if the information is worthwhile or n...

I really dislike the presentation of the 'gateway drug' argument used with regards to pot. In my experience alcohol is actually the base of the pyramid when you look at drug usage. I attended a highschool where a large number of students (who also happened to be the most talented athletes) got invol...

I'm in love with snatch grip deads, I feel they hit my hams and glutes soooo much better than standard deadlift and since I'm using the deadlift as my primary hamstring exercise. All leg work has ceased for the last week though because I pulled my hamstring doing HIIT (tried doing it 6 hours after h...

odd, my shoulder girdle is rather tight but I get little problems when I snatch or overhead squat but I start getting lots of impingement type pain when I try push press (seated millitary is usually ok though).

I like to play chemist and mix zero carb whey stuff with muscle milk. For a post workout shake I go with 1 scoop of the zero carb stuff (25 g protein) and 1/2 scoop of the muscle milk. I like this because it gives an instant hit of protein as well as a little bit of slower digesting protein to carry...

one exercise you might try is the spider walk: put your hand as high up on the wall as you can get it on your own (without too much pain) and then use your fingers to SLOWLY pull it up the wall, when you get to where you can't go any further slowly walk yourself back down again. repeat that several ...

For the quad I suggest working a lot on hamstring and hip flexor flexability as well as warming up for 10+ mins before stretching (cold stretch does little). I really wouldn't practice if you want to recover in any reasonable time frame, odds are that you are going to continually reinjure it trying ...
