I think upper back would definitely help you, but more importantly the inconsistency is a really good point.
It sounds like you got rid of a lot of relatively useless weight (read: fat) while maintaining great general physical preparedness.
For someone your height, I'd consider that pretty freakin' wide!
Excellent advice. Exactly on par with what I wanted to say.
So right you are, Scott.
At the risk of boring the hell out of you, I'd like to point out that the "tuck your elbows" cue is actually shoulder movement. I've noticed if you can't stay tucked on the way up, it's a scapular...
Something nobody hit on yet is just training your motor pattern.
Cast wrapping your wrists is fine and dandy, but if you don't try to control a straight wrist, the weight will dominate your wrist...
Dude is NUTS.
@mjanitch I think he means something like ME Lower (MON), ME Upper (TUE), DE Lower (THU), and DE Upper (SAT).
I think training ME for all three workouts in your training week will wear...
Hamstring shortness, although possible, is unlikely.
It's more likely that your hamstrings are being stretched after already being in a lengthened position. It's hard to put into words without...
I don't think stiffness in the front of his hips limit the arch at all. That stiffness drives the back into extension, which is pretty much all that arching is.
Definitely get the upper body...
Hahahaha, my buddy says that a lot more big girls hit on him now that he's bigger.
I completely agree. The research is still inconclusive on glucosamine. But keep up the fish oil.
He should see a physical therapist. That's your number on goal to get him better. Good luck...
I like to go in with a set opener (3RM weight for me), then a range for the next two depending on how I'm feeling. It's not set in stone, but it helps keep you organized in the crazy meet environment...
The thing looks awesome, by the way.
Heavier walking/sprinting for shorter distances hands down. Longer sprints train an energy system that isn't used in powerlifting. It just fatigues you more.
Go for 8 seconds, rest for a minute,...
I wouldn't train all three in one day too often at all. As jtteg_x said, upper/lower split is the way to go.
There's a reason you feel like you were hit by a truck the day after a full meet.
I would train anti-movement in the abdominal area if that's what you're doing. Say you have four programmed days per week. You'll want to do abdominal work at the end of each workout, rotating...
Are you new to training?
I would say if you're going to run before you lift, make sure your heart rate is between 120-150 bpm to get optimal cardiac output development..
Do whole body workouts...
That juggernaut method works with the basics of periodization for strength in that you build a base, then build on top of that. Your higher rep months are accumulation phases where you're building...
On an aside, I noticed from the link that they call the hexagon bar a shrug bar. I always thought using it for shrugs was just a hilarious joke.
