Re: Another SLAP tear thread - both shoulders?

Thanks for the responses guys. I talked to my physio today, he's referring me to my GP who'll either get me in for an MRI or get me seen by a consultant. Quite good news is that recovery should be...

Another SLAP tear thread - both shoulders?

Been into lifting since I was a younger teen, but had shoulder pain that's stunted progress for years. Always thought time would mend it, but obviously it didn't happen, and I was recently diagnosed...

Push up questions

I realise I've already asked a question here about hand stand push ups, but this one is for the regular old, feet on the floor, hands under shoulders ones.

1 - Hand placement. I'm not talking...

Re: Are handstand push ups a good sub for the press?

Clint - basically I've got a whole host of imbalances and the like. Barbell bench pressing is practically impossible because it always results in incredibly shore shoulders. Upper traps are usually...

Are handstand push ups a good sub for the press?

My physio recommended I avoid overhead pressing due to a lack of mobility, range of motion and shoulder blade stability when pressing overhead. That said, my shoulders feel bloody amazing just being...

New owner of a Concept 2 - questions!

My Model D arrived this morning, and I finally just got around to using it. Did a 2k row in 9mins 29secs. I have no idea how bad that is, but as someone who is unfit as hell, it killed me. Probably...

Re: Question about rowing machine - can it be left outside?

Ok, update on this.

Ordered a used C2 C/PM2 from a website, only for it to never arrive, and I was refunded instead. Had a feeling it was a scam from the get go, would probably have never had my...

Re: Question about rowing machine - can it be left outside?

Right, so I bit the bullet and bought a Model C rower with a PM2. It's pre-used, but I selected the "refurbished" option, so I'm assuming it'll be spruced up a little bit for me.

The ability to...

Re: Question about rowing machine - can it be left outside?

Yeah, I'm gonna avoid going for that one for the time being, as I'd have to get some kind of storage for it if I wanted to keep it out.

I'm looking at potential Concept 2's I could...

Re: Question about rowing machine - can it be left outside?

It's good idea, but unfortunately it just wouldn't fit in there. I've got a power rack at the far end of my garage, which means that it wouldn't be able to fit in there stretched out, and I the...

Question about rowing machine - can it be left outside?

A problem I have is that, despite really wanting a rowing machine, there's not much space available for one that wouldn't end up just awkwardly clogging my place up, whether somewhere in my house or...

The couch stretch - pain/extreme discomfort in femur?

Whenever I get into the couch/wall stretch for the hips (although I'm doing it with my knee up against my bedroom sofa, knee a couple inches away from contact for now) and set up in the stretch, I...

Re: Anyone else own a pair of WL shoes but no longer use them?

Oh I sees what you did there

By the way, off topic though it is, your pic reminded me so I've gotta ask. What is it with Crossfit and the whole "drink the Cool Aid" thing?

The one with the shoes, due to the shoes having helped resolve ankle flexibility issues, of course.

But if lifters A and B were both able to squat deep fine, and one bought shoes, would it give...

Re: Anyone else own a pair of WL shoes but no longer use them?

It's a video of a guy squatting 1035 in flat shoes...if you'd like I could find you flat shoed, raw powerlifters putting up big numbers too...?

Re: Anyone else own a pair of WL shoes but no longer use them?

Re: Anyone else own a pair of WL shoes but no longer use them?

It's a tool. Your hand is not an adequate tool for tightening/loosening nuts and bolts. Yeah, we've all done it, but the reality is that it's improvisation, not working with parts as they were...
