Re: weighted one hand pushups to build muscle?

I agree that you would probably be better of just doing regular benching to build strength. Regarding the video, the elevated angle and wild technique(bent hips and knees) makes it much less...

Re: strength gains and overeating

That makes A LOT more sense. I was wondering what on earth that first post was about. Reread it like 10 times and still had zero clue.

Re: Squatting while Defecating?

Depending on how high your toilet is, just put some cinder blocks where your feet would go. That or just screw some 10-12" lengths of 2x4s or 2x6's to the height you want. DYI for real cheap to...

Re: Best Cardio

You're going to get a lot of different answers here since it's all based on opinion. But in my opinion, I'd say swimming. Full body exercise with only small windows available for a new breath.

Re: Most efficient way to do a "Reverse Grip Clean"

I would think trying to keep the weight close to your body would make it easier to move more weight as well. Instead of of keeping your elbows stationary in front of your body let them slide back...

Re: bestbelts?

I believe some one followed up on it and talked to the owner(Dean?). Sounds like it's only temporary and should be back up soon.

I'm hoping this is the case since all the reviews I've read on belts...

Re: Reebok Reelflex on Sale for $39.98 + $8 S&H (Or no S&H if you pickup)

Not sure if it's just my computer or something but my Avast anti-virus flagged the link with a possible trojan. Their site may have been hacked or something, just a heads up.

Re: Bench Press imbalance

Are you sure you're pressing straight up? If you're pressing to the right, you could be rotating your shoulders therefore dropping your right arm lower/raising your left arm up. I'd look at that...

Re: pendlay row @ 155lbs form check

I think your supposed to keep your head neutral as well. You seem to be whipping it up and back on each rep.

Re: CF Games on ESPN 2

Re: Weekly linear progression strength program?

If you can squeeze in 2 strength days a week, I'd think just doing Workout A and B once a week would keep things moving.

Re: The beginnings of my XFIT gym

Yeah that box is a bit dangerous looking. You could cross brace the legs which would help or do like stated above and fill in the spaces with plywood to frame it out.
