Re: Weak Overhead Lifts

Try less strict pressing. Rotate floor press, z presses, DB or KB pressing and even incline bench. Hammer your triceps too, its been mentioned I know but that's where most lifts fail.

Re: Zercher squats

I have members use axles, it does not dig in nearly as much, that could be a issue.

Re: OHP not increasing

Try pressing variations on your press day, seated Z presses, floor presses, inclines and heavy triceps. To get stronger you have to do more then just that lift, same holds true for squats and deads...

Re: CrossFit Specialty Courses

If you contact HQ they'll get it squared away. I had to do that because I was mistakenly given a certificate of attendance instead of completion. They'll get it up in the database and send you the...

Re: First Powerlifting Competition

I'd suggest raw for your first contest. Go compete, have fun, see how it runs and learn. Getting comfortable with gear can take a while.

Re: Ideas for a foot brace for pulling a vehicle

Sit in a big tire if you have one. If you do the wood make sure its topped with something your butt slides on.

Re: Mike Jenkins Bumper Flip

You want to catch it at the top if you can, on once it starts going down its harder. Like someone mentioned your grip is like any other muscle and can be over trianed very easy!

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I agree standards should be known and adhered to, if it were my sport, Strongman, Id be livid. However, HQ cannot count on some guy or girl that sat through a LI and took the Judge's Course to verify...

Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

I personally think HQ is shooting themselves in the foot. I'm not saying its right but people will try to cheat. Lets say you get 5-10 more cheap reps, that bumps you way up in your region. Like my...

Re: Success with fat loss without calorie counting

I did Carbnite following a knee surgery to shed some weight to help my recovery. I couldnt do cardio for obvious reasons for a while and I dropped a large amount of weight.

Re: New World Record Deadlift 1128 pounds

Mark is 46 years old too! Not really a rack pull, it's a much thicker bar and whips 4-5 inches because of the 14ft bar we us. Brian and Z had the WR last year.
