    I'm definitely not married to the snatches (I really dont want them at all and have since the time of this posting replaced them with leg press until I've found something beter). I do the box squats...

    Well my goal is to simply increase my total body strength. I'm a discus thrower with "weak" legs and I'm looking to remedy that along with increasing my upper body strength. If ya don't mind me...

    Thanks a ton Tom.
  4. First I'd like to say thanks for all the helpful...

    First I'd like to say thanks for all the helpful advice. I think I'm getting a better idea of what you mean. Some questions I have are just arround abbreviations. What do these mean: GHRs, GPP, and...

    I do not.



    The snatches were origionally on there just for their explosive nature and to improve flexability (I used very little weight when doing it). I do my deadlifts at about 55% of my...
  6. Looking for a new DE Lower Body lift (as opposed to snatch)

    Currently I've got snatch as one of my DE leg lifts but given my unfamiliarity with the form (and the fact that my little brother is lifting with me, who has less of an idea how to do it than I do)...

    Thanks for all the positive feedback everyone, much appreciated.
  8. Thanks for all the good feedback. Gives me some...

    Thanks for all the good feedback. Gives me some pondering to do. I think I'll back off the pad on the squat because I can see how that might be a problem. I think I'll give it a week or two without...
  9. Yea, definitely saw these coming. Anyone who...

    Yea, definitely saw these coming. Anyone who cares to give a reasonable (unbiased) suggestion out there? I don't really care much about forming my calluses so that's not an issue for me. I'm mostly...
  10. Is there a problem with lifting aids (gloves, pads, etc...)

    As I've been reading a lot of the posts on the website, I've noticed that a good deal of people shun the use of stuff like gloves and other accessories to make the lifting a little easier. Why is...

    Well since this routine is apparently so crap-tastic, can someone tell me (specifically) what's wrong and why it's wrong. I've never been the type to simply accept what I'm told. I like to have...
  12. Seriously now? When did I ever claim that this...

    Seriously now? When did I ever claim that this was the holy grail of lifting. Never. I've simply said that everything in it makes perfect sense to me on how it'll translate into what I'm looking for....
  13. Sure, there's a difference between being a better...

    Sure, there's a difference between being a better thrower and throwing farther. However, the point is irrelevant to the topic. Not only am I already throwing 4-5 days a week, I've asked for help that...
  14. Yea I'm with ya about all the people giving me...

    Yea I'm with ya about all the people giving me advice. But this routine was brainstormed with the help of a few ex-throwers on these different forums. And quite contrarily, most of the video's I...

    Half of this is correct, and half isn't. You're right I dont have a damned clue on how to train effectively for throwing, that's why I'm here. You're wrong that I simple disregard what everyone says...

    First day of workouts is done. It took me about 1 hour, 40 min to complete everything but the plyometric bar tosses (smith machines weren't available at the time, I won't save them for last anymore)....

    I've learned the second one I've described is referred to as a sumo deadlift. What're the advantages/disadvantages of each of these lifts?
