Re: Reebok Oly's/Crossfit vs Nike Romaleos

The Nike's are absolutely brilliant for olympic lifting and squatting. I haven't tried the Reebok's, but I have a hard time believing they can compare strictly for those movements (which is what a...

Re: box squats sets and reps

If you plan to do dynamic effort work, knowing your approximate 1rm box squat is important and worth finding.

The most effective way I've found (and I think this is still Louie's general...

Re: conditioning movements similar to burpees

If I'm in a hurry I'll superset my assistance work, especially upper body. I've had no recovery issues thus-far.

Re: Meal Replacement Drink

~300kcals is considered a meal replacement? Is that a joke?

You probably shouldn't use it in place of meal, but supplementing it additionally might be useful. It depends on your current diet and...

Re: Safety Bar Squats?

The abs are constantly working to maintain a neutral spine against the weight which is off-set to pull you forward.

I'm not informed about your injury, but if you find your posterior chain lacking...

Re: Benching with Dumbbells or Barbell?

Like you said, both have their benefits. If you're only doing one, I would advise using the barbell, provided that your shoulders are healthy. You'll be able to get stronger that way, and that's...

Re: In-season (non-CF sport): 2-day a week LP vs. ME Lower + ME Upper?

I've done both and I prefer a max effort template in-season for all but the newest beginner. The max effort gives a little more wiggle room according to how banged up you are. After all, you're...

Re: GSLP Neck Harness Question

Thanks for the input, everyone. For those who use a neck harness, how much weight do you use? What do your set/rep schemes look like? I think JP recommends no less than 4x25 per workout.

Re: GSLP Neck Harness Question

The 345 squat is probably a little misleading, as I recently hit a triple at 335lbs. Still, I'm quite tall and have always been better at pulling than squatting.

As for the imbalance between upper...

GSLP Neck Harness Question

For those of you following GSLP, when using the neck harness do you only train neck extension or flexion also? I can't recall what the program specifies. Thanks.

Re: Creatine Question

Wow, that is super cheap. I understand Chris supplies quality product, so I'll definitely look into that after I finish my tub of cheap (in terms of quality) stuff.

Creatine Question

Re: alternative to neck harness

Wrestlers frequently do neck bridges, but I've heard those can be rather dangerous for beginners.

Glute Ham Raise Question

Is there any value to doing GHR's on 45 degree benches? My school's gym has no GHD's. Obviously they're easier on the 45 degree benches, but if I add resistance, either by holding weight or wrapping...

Reverse Hyper Alternative?

At my school gym there is a machine that is very similar to a reverse hyper, but it's made to work only one leg at a time. I'll try to describe it: you bend your upper body over a deck-like platform...

Re: Extra Calories...

I don't eat Paleo, but I do eat real food almost exclusively. Whenever I'm feeling less than robust, the calorie-dense foods I go to are JIF natural peanut butter and whole milk.
