    Ah, OK.

    I got the bar in the overhead position by push pressing it, by the way.

    Yeah, I used Photoshop to blur and blot out my head for privacy reasons.

    I did try to look down in both photos. I had in mind the following:

  3. Critique my overhead squat and shoulder, ankle, knee, hip flexibility

    After a college tour, I still had a few shots left on my disposable camera, so I asked my dad to take a few pictures in the gym.

    The first photo is my full overhead squat with the empty bar....

    That's of course the first step. I'm more interested in what happens after.

    Mike G's answer was good. I'll see if I can adjust one of the racks in my gym next time.

    I believe a few photos will nicely complement what others have said.

    Akakios Kakiasvilis and Pyrros Dimas are both three-time gold medalists. Obviously, their techniques were world-class.

    I'm going to court, no question about that.

    I'm wondering whether explicitly stating that I just have a permit will help me.

    I'm definitely not doing blaming it on my dad. I drove the car; it's...

    Might not have to pay the ticket?

    This morning, I was taking my usual route to class. There's a four-way intersection, and as I saw the (familiar) stop sign, I slowed down, looked around, saw no cars, and kept going. A few seconds...

  11. What do you think of this university gym?

    As a high school senior, I'm in the final stages of college selection.

    I'm going to visit Washington and Lee at the end of this month. I accidentally stumbled across their athletic facility web...

    1. Yes (even the chest).

    2. Like RedSpikeyThing said, it depends on how "high" high is.
  13. Running shoes for variable speeds (not long distance)?

    I play tennis, and I'm a firm believer that variable speed running (includes but doesn't have to be HIIT) is more effective. Tennis is all about quick bursts of speed spread out over a long period of...

    Tang Soo Do is how Korean people pronounce Tang Shou Dao, which can be translated as "The Way of the Tang Hand."

    The three characters are 唐手道. Karate used to be 唐手, but it is now 空手.

    Anyway,...

    I started last year as a junior in high school. Due to my status as a part time university student, I was allowed to use the campus gym.

    I'd always wanted to weight train, anyway. I found this...
  16. Alright, thanks. I'll run some searches.

    Is it because a snatch-grip deadlift places more strain on the upper back?
  18. Does switching grips on the deadlift (and thus weight) help prevent overtraining?

    I'm currently doing 6 deadlift singles once a week.

    At a clean and jerk hand position with a hook grip, I did 175 lbs. 6 times a few hours ago.

    Last week, I used a hook grip at a snatch hand...

    Interesting observation. I spend more time on lower body exercises than upper body exercises. I do far more squat and pull variations than bench and curl variations.

    I suspect that's the reason...

    I think more students at my university gym use the power rack for curling than for squatting / pressing / pulling combined.
