Hehe lotsa those kinda guys around. Reminds me of the guys I see that can't bench 2 plates alone but when their buddies are there to spot them you see them going for 3. Buddies ends up doing upright rows at the same time.

That's why I love the deadlift. Can't cheat. Can't get help. You can either lift it or you can't.

good workout today..squats are improving still, adding more weight.....but doing low bar is killing my wrist, any tips on grip that don't bend your wrist back?

seems like the pain on my wrist is the limiting factor as the weight...currently at 170lbs


weight for todays deadlift 1x5 was 245....did that and kept going 1 rep each up to 300lbs

was doing regular grip then at 245 switch to mixed grip, so much easier

after putting down the 300lbs my music went all slow and i got really light headed...shouldn't have pushed myself that hard but 300 was close and i wanted to hit it

Well your not supposed to be holding it with your wrists. The bar should be resting on your back and your hands should be behind the bar holding it in place NOT below the bar holding it up. I lack the flexibility in my shoulders to do this so I try to get my elbows back as far as I can each time. This was demonstrated in the Low Bar squat video several pages ago.

Berz out.

what i meant was i am holding the bar as if i'm bench pressing with my thumb on the same side as my fingers...but the weight of the bar rolls it down my back a bit rolling my hands/wrist back

i'll have to work on that

If you are doing low bar, you don't wrap your thumb around as well. And you aren't holding it with the hands, the hands only sort of push it forward to stay on the indents of a low bar squat.

Sounds like your form needs work. Don't want to be hurting that wrist.

With Low-bar, my wrist is inline with my forearm (thumb wrapped around), elbows up, and moving together, to create that indent for the bar to stabilize on.

my "form" doesn't need work, my hand placement does

Kirkland Brand Frozen Salmon portions from Costco. Holy shit they are tasty. Had one a week ago and I thought it was just tasty because I was so hungry, but had another mmm tastes so fresh. A little honey mustard spread on top and tossed in the frying pan for 8-10 mins and it's delish!

They aren't really cheap in terms of frozen salmon, but oh so tasty!

37g protein each and about $3 or so a pop (Bag of 7 or so)

I'm starting my 2nd cycle today. I follow the steps on what hotnfit.com said 3x/day the recommended dosage and so far I've lost 15lbs since beginning of January. With the help of dieting as well as moderate weight lifting 4-6 times a week of course.

But yes, the EC stack does cause your body temperature to go up slightly which causes you to sweat more. Don't forget to drink lots of water!

Holy fuck you got a lot stronger in a small amount of time...props on that man!

Anyways, haven't done deadlifts in about 3 weeks. Been skipping workouts here and there due to school which sucks; only went twice last week. Fortunately, all my university applications are completed (accepted into SFU ), and a two-week spring break will allow me to rip shit up in the gym.

For those who currently attend SFU, how's the gym there? Excited to be able to train during school in the Fall.
