Been stuck at 185 for 3 weeks training 3x3 185kg deadlifts wednesday and sundays. I am thinking i over estimated the speed at which my...

    Leg press

    A good exercise, some depending on design emphasize the hip, while other allow one to go much deeper (safely) compared to the squat. if you ever feel strain in the low back or itchy afterwards , consider how you perform the movement, more often than not you shouldn’t actually sit on the seat...

    Side deltoids and trapezius with more of what you need and less of what you don't...

    Wide shoulders with a matching and balanced set of trapezius muscles is just what the doctor ordered. I like performing the wide grip barbell upright rows, as it really gives me a magnificent and simultaneous pump in both my side deltoids and trapezius muscles, however my left shoulder is not in...

    Are lifting straps for the weak?

    The direct answer is no they're not for the weak, unless you consider some of the world's strongest men weak! When you're lifting really heavy (relative to you) for repetitions, or you're holding a weight statically momentarily before moving it (such in a halting deadlift position with a...

    World's Strongest Man vs. Rolles Gracie

    I have an issue with someone getting punched repeatedly once downed by his opponent as we see in this video clip. I fully understand the "tap" as a gesture of defeat, so why do not the people running this MMA fights devise a ruling where once your opponent has been knocked down and is in a very...

    Weird Feeling In Arm

    I'm not sure where to put this sorry but when I use a bar to do squats my left arm starts to get tingly and sore probably about 2 sets in. I was wondering is that normal and why it happens?

    The Real Science of Squat Depth - t nation article

    "The ideal squat ends around parallel. This puts sarcomeres in a position to produce the most tension and force. Admittedly, a majority of research studies suggest deep squats are more effective and healthier on the joints than partial squats or parallel squats. These results are to be expected...

    Bracing The Core. Whats your trick??

    Alright so we know bracing the core is about getting into a neutral spinal position, pushing the ribcage down through diaphragmic action (like your taking a shit and trying to snap it off at the same time by clenching the ass cheeks), and pretend someone is about to punch you in the guts. What...

    State of Origin 2015

    I think QLD will take back the title this year. Most of their big guns are playing well. Thurston, Inglis, Slater, Smith, Cronk. Where the key NSW players in key position are not. Hodkinson, Reynolds, Moloney etc. I fear. 3 nil whitewash. NSW also gave up a home game to Melb. What the fuck...
