Re: Daily Diet Plan

Does anyone know where I can find a daily diet plan? A grocery shopping list of a big basket of food that I can eat every day. I'm a 34 year old male, i weigh 195 at 5'10" I'd like to lose ~25 lbs. I have a rowing machine at home that i plan to use 5 times a week. (25-30 spm, 5000-10000 meters, 30-...

Re: Laser Pointer Rehab Therapy

It may be harmless, and I have no problem with anyone playing with a $3 toy, but some clinics are charging vast sums for treatment. Of course they say you need a specific frequency of light, yada, yada, in order to justify their fees, so you know some people are getting swindled out there. As well,...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

I don't think you understand what I'm describing. I'm talking about someone who locks out his deadlift and THEN arches way back into the hyperextension range with his hips and knees straight. They're not strugling to finish the lift, because they've already finished the lift. Then they don't know w...

Re: Laser Pointer Rehab Therapy

I hope you don't mind, but I'm skeptical. A little Googling shows that this has all the hallmarks of a bogus treatment with no science behind it. Skeptical I am very cynical about things like this. So, I understand. Most people are and should be skeptical about things like this. However, one of you...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

Kenny, from where I sit, it's hard for me to see application of what you're saying to the non-elite-world-class lifter. A Strong Case For The Round Back Deadlift Contreras' article support the premise of minimizing heavy round back deadlift pulls. I am okay with that. Yeah, they can get amazing res...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

I don't attempt to coach deadlift. I don't attempt to believe I know what in the hell i'm talking about on deadlift. I hate doing it and the more I train, the worse it gets. Consequently I end up only deadlifting at meets. I know I should work on it, but I don't know what in the hell to do. I got p...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

I believe (and have found) "press the floor away" is a good coaching cue for some people because it can help put them into and maintain more tension in a more efficient starting position. Poor Coaching Cue "Press the floor away" is a poor coaching with the Conventional Deadlift. We've been through ...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

My point is that conventional deadlifts are a hip-dominant movement, not a spine-dominant movement. Most of the ROM comes from the hips, with some knee extension and minimal spine movement. ... Therefore, I'm having a hard time understanding how the erectors are moving the weight rather than merely...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

"Conventional Deadlift The muscle firing sequence is: Back-Leg-Back. "...the initial drive is done primarily by the back (erector spinae) and not the legs. If the athlete tries to move the weight using their legs instead of their back the result is a premature straightening of the legs and an unwan...

Re: That question about lower back initiating deadlift

Some time ago I seem to remember a debate about how deadlift actually works. Debate? It is more like "Neanderthal Thinking" vs "Scientific Data build on Empirical Evidence". If memory serves, Kenny Croxdale was saying research has proven actual firing sequence is: - Lower back extends slightly to b...

Re: HDL and Strength Training

According to scientific journal articles I've read, the only ways to raise HDL cholesterol, aside from drugs, are losing weight and regular aerobic exercise at about 75% of maximum heart rate. Other that the aerobic exercise component of strength training, has anyone run across any scientific studi...
