    Yeah, thumbless seemingly allows me to lift more on axle, but that's still only like 150-160. I really wouldn't care that much, as long as my axle DL could catch up to even just my strict press,...

    I'm not sure, I usually don't do double-overhand for regular DLs. I understand, mechanically, there is going to be a sizable difference, but 300 pounds? I didn't think that was possible when I can...

    I've wacked myself quite a few times in the chin when doing OHP.

    Question about axle deadlift

    I'm starting to get interested in strongman, and because of that, I've started incorporating a lot of axle bar work. My grip is pretty weak, but I know I just have to keep progressing slowly.

    I can squat probably not even half of what you can. So, according to my expert analysis, my opinion doesn't mean shit in this thread.

    What are your thoughts on Korte 3 x 3?

    I've always been really interested in Sheiko, and through extensive research of it, I've seen people mention Korte a few times. I'm not really too familiar with it, but I decided to download a...

    I'm not the strongest here, but whatever.

    Get back to a 405 squat (currently at 355 after some bad knee injuries)
    405 bench
    585 deadlift
    Get back in the 4.5's in the 40
    Get under 10% BF at...

    Surprisingly, running doesn't hurt my knees at all. Plus, I have to keep running since Spring football is coming up soon.

    Anyways, just did 20-rep squats again, and I experienced NO pain. The burn...

    I like doing full-body. I got used to it after Sheiko. With that being said, my experience doesn't really apply here, since the only real upper body work I do is simply to improve my OHP and maintain...

    I went with my intuition to just try 20-rep squats ONE time to see if it helped, and it actually did! I had my doubts, but I'm glad I tried it. My legs were jello after that set. My 5RM is only 275...

    I hope it gets better, I've had it for two years (about to turn 21). But I've never really given lighter weight a chance with squats, which is why I think the 20-rep squats may help (along with...

    I DO wear the brace, I'm saying I want to get to the point where it is not needed and I experience no pain without it. Only time I want to HAVE to wear knee braces is when playing football (as...

    No, I refused medication, but I am taking Flex as well. It helps, as does my knee brace, but I'm trying to lose the brace, so as not to be dependent on it.

    I was actually thinking yesterday that...

    Thanks for the advice guys. And it's not so much that I absolutely can't squat at all, just my arthritis makes me knees the size of softballs after I squat. For some reason, I don't experience that...

    Drop squat for a second deadlift day?

    Basically, I squat on Monday and DL on Friday, but, due to knee injuries and bad squat form, squats are killing my knees and my back. However, I seem to have no problem with deadlift. I can brace...

  17. How could I implement Atlas stones into Sheiko?

    Title is pretty self-explanatory. I've never done strongman before, and I want to get into it. I can deadlift about 5 plates, and I tried to pick up a 200# stone and couldn't move it, so I'm really...

    That's great, and I respect that. I guess I'm just a little more risky and irresponsible, haha. I'd rather become a derelict chasing my dreams than working at a job I don't enjoy.
