It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Having some bad sciatica symptoms, shock sent down my left glute to leg. I can barely put socks on and hip/lower back mobility is limited. Been feeling down but I'll be back hopefully soon :/

^^ I've had that for years my bro had it worse than me, the lower vertebrae in his spine constricted the nerves. Was do bad he did cortisone shots a few times. Although over the past 3 years he somehow made a ridiculous 180. Dropped weight, and now does tonnes of hiking, soccer and ultimate. I know mine isn't nearly as severe as his acute case, but enough where I'm still worried. Flexibility is a huge factor. But once you injure yourself you have to really take it easy til you're healed. So easy to re agitate it.

Gonna miss squatting and deadlifting for a while. Did you use ice/heat packs on the area? Which did your body respond to better? I've been rolling the area with a tennis ball and foam roller to stretch them out but it's gonna take me a while of rehabilitation to fix this up.

For the squaters who want some Adipowers:

1) go to the Adidas store, ask for Adipowers then try on some similar shoes to get your sizing correct
2) ask for their 25% off online card (be friendly about this)
3) order from Adidas.ca

=$142 tax in

Just ordered mine yesterday

Tennis ball and foam roller are great so you are already ahead of the game. Just be careful with the tennis ball as it is easy to overdue it on an area that is already sensitive. I always used heat on my tailbone area (usually always the left side for me) but my brother always preferred cold. I like heat because it relaxes the muscles and is comforting you should still be able to do some leg workouts, but no PR one rep max shit. Stretch is the key

What alwYs fucked me up was sitting on the couch. I'd cross my left leg under and sit on it. Over the years I've lost alot of the flexibility and I've started doing yoga to hopefully help. Although it will be a long process..:

Great workout today
Pushed myself well

To top it off, at the end, chick in front of me was wearing extremely tight grey yoga pants, with thong sweat prints doing squat
Eye candy.

Question: What's the best way, in terms of programming, to stay "in shape" (lose minimal strength gains, remain relatively flexible, keep stabilizers functioning) during periods of time (1-2 weeks) where you are not getting lots of sleep, enough good food, and time to go perform your regular routine? During this time I obviously won't be expecting to perform at my best and expect to progress but given these factors what's the best option?

....by working out?

all those things you listed dont even matter, think about all the pro athletes that train/compete hungover as fuck on 3 hrs of sleep...they are pros because they derive their strength internally and mentally not physiologically

^^ do your hands stay the same distance apart from the bottom of your stroke to the top? (As if your grabbing a bar) or at the top of your extension do you bring your hands closer together above your chest.

I assume the latter is correct?

it was actually with my black old GNC shaker cup.

I did have a mutant shaker though, and got it given to me for free at reflex nutrition

it's a real shame because it was a nice shaker. for some reason the quality sucked, and i found a giant hole right at the bottom one day

For that set I just went up and down straight. No touching. Don't think it matters to much at that weight.

Nice db press vid.. 150s!

Good price on the Adistars. I paid close to that for the Adidas Powerlift trainers. Been very happy with them.

it really depends on the person

I won't go too much into the mechanics of it, because tbh i'm really not sure

you'll see alot of guys do an angled straight dumbbell press up and down, while some guys will bring the dumbbells together at the top.

from what i've experienced, the first one places more emphasis on the tri's, while the latter more on the chest. reason being, the first one is alot narrower in terms of movement path, hence the same reason why close grip bench works more tri's as well.

do both
