Re: random controversy

That would make sense. Unfortunately there is a faction of the Republican party that likes holding the country hostage. Because of big money being used defeat Republicans in primaries when they try to take a stand, the rest of the party doesn't want to do anything about it. Gerrymandering has made a...

Re: What shoulder articulation is this

I fixed the link and took you out of the "newly registered" group, which will give you full user rights. That looks like external rotation, the one at the bottom here. http://exrx.net/Articulations/Shoulder.html#anchor110483" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; The only difference is layin...

Re: online exercise science degree

You will be able to post links now. There is a post threshold to get out of the "newly registered" group, but in some cases, such as this one, I remove the user from that restricted group before they reach the threshold.

Re: Random crap

Lots of dumbbell droppers at the gym I had been working out at too. It's pretty annoying.

Re: training chest with minimum shoulder involvement?

When you have an injury like that, you have to let it heal.

Re: Intermediate bodyweight 2-day split program

It looks alright to me. Bands are a good progression method. Strapping a plate to your back even works to a certain extent. One arm pushups are also a good option.

Weight vests and dip belts are useful things to have when doing these sorts of exercises. Even a heavy backpack would work.

Re: Trying to decide on a routine

I don't process carbs very well at all, and even I bulk with greater than a 1:1 protein to carb ratio. Usually 1:1.3 or 1:1.4. Most people are better off closer to 1:2. Carbs don't just fuel your workout, they increase your appetite allowing you to eat enough to grow.

Re: multi-compound exercises

Can someone tell me what the purpose or training goals would be, for someone who uses this or similar exercises. I would say the purpose is wasting time. I am posting it here for a reason, and that reason is because an experienced personal trainer who is the coordinator at the personal training cou...

I think this should be stickied to every internet forum ever created. Have a read, it's a very good and easy-to-read e-book (and short)
I've seen that before, and I very much agree. It explains it pretty well.

Re: questioning safe technique

I like the well rounded, general fitness approach, and the use of body weight exercises plus sprints, and complexes as anaerobic conditioning. While it's good to specialize in the things that are most important to you, it's good to have some ability in other areas. Adding variation to interval train...

Re: questioning safe technique

My opinion is that you shouldn't hyper-extend the lower back. Shoulders are more individual. Some people can do it and some can't. There are some who are critical of crossfit for those reasons.
