The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    westside question!

    The westside beginner 9 week routine calls for reverse hyperextensions and glute ham raises. Problem is is that I dont have access to these. Are there any excersizes that could substitute possibly??

    Pullthrus, Dimel deads, and back raises should do fine.

    HeavyBomber has posted a few vids of pullthrus. A Dimel dead is just like an RDL, but done explosively. And a back raise is well, a back raise

    Dimel DLs, pullthroughs, Romanian DLs or SLDLs, GMs, seated GMs
    A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook

    If you have a power rack and a bench, then you can do GHRs. Here's what you will need to do; use the saftey pin of a squat rack and an adjustable bench and slide the bench over next to the power rack. Lock your feet under the saftey pin and place your knees were on the bench. Make sure the pin is stable under your feet and then do the GHR.

    thats great, pretty much all I have is barbell rack and weights so RDL GMs and SLDL are perfect.
