No vid. Wasn't sure I would make it so I didn't record it. Next time I try I will.

I widened my squat stance pretty significantly and it made A HUGE difference! No hip pain at all, no lower back fatigue, etc. I guess it just works better with my build.

I wonder if switching to sumo deadlift would be as beneficial

I've never been a fan of sumo. It "looks" easier and from my perspective doesn't even look like a deadlift. It's almost like your doing a weird squat while holding the bar at your feet. I've never really given it much effort over 225lbs though so I can't really say. It looks like it takes a lot of back out of the lift. For me I'm doing deads to build my back so taking that away from the lift would be counter productive.

I always thought that as well, just like wide stance squats takes effort from the quads and moves it to the hams and glutes. But after watching some more training videos, it seems like for power and strength, you need to lift in whatever way is best for your body.

So it's been almost nearly 3.5 years since I started going to the gym. But after that I'd say I probably took 2.5 years off and the 1 year was just going to the gym to stay active. Was hard for me to get back into the groove of things after moving to a few different cities.

But I'm back in Van and started going regularly again. After about 3 weeks of getting back into it and mainly focusing on form, I tested my 1RMs:

5'6" 160lbs 19% BF
Bench: 115lbs lower than my old one for reps definitely the weakest
Squat: 225lbs
Deadlift: 250lbs

Pretty happy with my squat and deadlifts and was actually surprised I was able to hit those.

my goals for this year are
Bench: 185lbs
Squat: 315lbs
Deadlift: 405lbs

Will be starting a 5x5 program this week

^ Best of luck. Very doable with a decent program. Give low bar squat a chance if you havent already. wont be very comfortable first few weeks but is definitely worth it
You're the same height and roughly the same weight as me.

Been in the transitioning stage of going from powerlifting to oly lifting the last few months. My mobility has been surprisingly decent considering my strength program the last few years.
Just picked up a new pair of Nike romaleos 3 yesterday. Will see how they compare to my Adipowers.
Stoked to try them out.

After 12 weeks of 5/3/1 I got some pretty decent progress on all lifts. Basically my old 1RM became my new 6-10 RM. Last Saturday I took my old ~5RM squat and did 3 sets of 10 with it. Paid the price after that in terms of soreness but it was worth it

I like that I was able to 'figure out' my deadlift and squat form, and I no longer have to worry about hurting my hips or back any more. For deadlifts I did deficit deadlifts for all my early sets, then regular for the main working set. I feel that helped quite a bit.

But I find power lifting to be incredibly boring and not immediately rewarding. I have to admit, ever since I started TRT and am now actually able to get a pump, it's what I care about most when I lift. The pump you get after stretching and burning with bodybuilding style sets feels SO GOOD and you can feel yourself get bigger each week. Maybe not stronger relatively, but tighter and fuller and veiny.

So I'll be sticking to bodybuilding, back on my 4 day split. Weights are way up since the 12 weeks of 531, so I should be able to get an even better pump than before.

Plan is to do about 16 weeks of this, then cut for 12 weeks and go from there.

Dre powebeats or whatever (Bluetooth in ear). My fiancÚ uses the monster isport Bluetooth in ear headphones (99.99 @ Costco). The dre beats sound significantly better though.

If you plan on spending a bit of money, I'd say 100% go Bluetooth. Absolute gym game changer

I'm looking at the Bragis or Jaybirds right now. Just a little concern about the sound quality since it's wireless.

I use these off Amazon

Sound is good, battery lasts 8+ hours, and they are dirt cheap.

Moore's start at $500 for custom, 6 week turnaround time.

Doesn't seem to be the greatest quality.

Hey guys

I created a thread in the health/wellness forum but thought I'd post here in hopes one of you bros who workout can help

https://www.revscene.net/forums/7129...mendation.html

Quote:
Long story short, I have pain in my left shoulder (towards the rear) which occurs whenever I do any vertical pulling motions (pull-ups, rows) and I also feel it a bit when doing a horizontal pull (even just opening a door).
I have no idea how I injured myself but I do workout 4x a week and am currently taking a week off due to this injury.

Can someone recommend a good physiotherapist in Vancouver/Burnaby (I don't want to go all the way to Richmond or Surrey) who hopefully is also knowledgeable in areas of fitness or works with athletes too? If I have to stop working out temporarily I will but ideally I'd like to work with someone who can help suggest alternative exercises so that I can continue working out.

Many thanks

Many thanks
How long have you been working out? Just to gauge whether this might be an injury as a result of under developed stabilizer muscles?
How's your posture? Are your shoulders currently rolled forward?
My experience with hurting my shoulder, and having it not "heal" over a few months was a strain on the muscles between my delt/peck muscles, that were never really getting relaxed enough to get better (sitting at a keyboard all day, driving, etc basically in the same position putting strain on the muscles all the time).
Went to physio, got taped up into a position of "proper" posture and conditioned myself to emulate that feeling felt with the tape all the time. Lightened my workouts for a bit, focusing on stretching the tight areas really well. Got better pretty quick.

Physio I went to was at my work, so can't recommend sorry.
