Very nice back strength here man. Really really impressive. T-bar strength is very impressive and so is your pulldown and row strength. Keep it up bro. ;);)

Thanks man, i really like the raised t-bar, where you lay at an angle an your chest and then pull up or squeeze back, i dont know how to explain it exactly, but when i go home this summer, my back strength always goes up a ton. too bad we dont live near each other because it seems as if we have the same goals and are about the same size, for now....

So what did ya do to your AC? Hurt it while benching?

I hurt mine a while back, sucked. Tis fine now though, although my rotator is fuked.

the sports medicine doctor said it is just from overuse and it is mainly caused by bench press, going heavy. he said this happens to most pro football players and that they just go under the knife and cut off the end of a bone and it fixes the prob 98% of the time, but they are getting paid a couple of million, so they make them do this, i dont know the long term benefits of getting the bone cut a little bit, but it works for them, why cant it work for me? plus i dont have the cash. i think i mainly hurt it while benching because i like a little bit wider grip, but i have to go narrower now, oh well. my rotator used to be fucked, but i warm it up before every chest and shoulder workout, its fine now, what did you do to fix your AC joint??

I noticed you have not once posted a leg workout, yet you do cardio. Do you not train legs or just not post the workouts? I feel like I just read like 8 arm workouts, but no legs. Just curious considering you said weight belts are for sissies.

My AC was just a strain, so just REST, its fine now, but my rotator is still hurting.

Good luck man

thank you ericg
and for you LATMAN...
i explained earlier that i blew out my knee and cannot do any type of leg lifts, i have a slightly torn miniscus in my left knee which inhibits me from doing any type of lateral movements and lifting weights on my legs, but things like an elliptical is ok and also riding a bike since i am not doing any side to side motion. when i could lift on my legs, i was squatting over 350 and leg pressing over 1000, and i didnt need a belt, yet again, belts are for sissies.

Chris Rodgers

Haha, ok buddy.

How did you injure your knee if I may ask?

The Calvinator
04-22-2002, 02:41 PM
i used to play volleyball in college and normally most outside hitters get set at most 700 times a season, i got set almost 1500, so from over use basically. i blew it out by going for a tight set and having to dodge running into the net, i lunged on leg forward and it gave out. i have since retired and now coach.
