Re: Press vrs Push-press

Yes. I think you understood it correctly. For push-press, the bar needs to rest on your deltoids. When you dip down to get your momentum, the bar has to stay where it is. I.e. your arms have to stay...

Re: Heavy Squat the day after OH lunges?

Warming up reduces the soreness considerably. As I understand, you will be in the gym today anyway. After warming up, begin with your squat warmup sets with the empty barbell. If it hurts too much...

Re: O.K.....Why Rowing?

Congrats. :)

A small question/remark: Sometimes I do HIIT using the C2 rower. E.g. 5 rounds of 1 min full-intensity rowing + 2 min slower rowing. In the last rounds, my abs are burning like hell....

Re: Realistic Strength Goals Without Gaining Weight

Thanks for replies. :)



Since I just began to learn the snatch and c&j, I'm not doing them with heavy weights yet. We train the technique for 30-40 mins before the strength sessions. I hope I'll...

Re: My air squat beginner

I assume you are following this "sit-back" cue which obviously doesn't work for you. The cue is usually given either to keep the lower back tight or to keep the weight on the heels. Since you are...

Re: Realistic Strength Goals Without Gaining Weight

I am not doing a strict zone or paleo diet but I am following their principles. I.e. balanced meals with lots of vegetables, meat and fruit. Some nuts. Almost no junk food. I still consume dairy and...

Re: Realistic Strength Goals Without Gaining Weight

I guess there's not much I can do against the fear of gaining weight. Cause it is not very rational, but rather psychological. As soon as I gain weight, it sucks the life out of me. The gained weight...

Re: Realistic Strength Goals Without Gaining Weight

Thanks for the replies.

I'm 1.77m (I guess which is around 5' 7").

The reason for not wanting to gain weight is fear. I've been overweight my entire life. I was 95kg (210 lbs) two years ago. After...

Realistic Strength Goals Without Gaining Weight

Hello,

Since I joined a weightlifting club I started to concentrate on the heavy lifts. I am squatting three times a week, deadlifting once a week, pressing/bench pressing at least once a week. I do...

Re: 2010 Games winner guessing

As I was watching the live feed, the announcers were mentioning Annie Thorisdottir all the time. I didn't know her, I didn't quite get her last name. I thought they were calling her "Annie Thor's...

Re: Can't Play any Videos on the Games Site

Try Google Chrome. It worked for me. Firefox didn't.

By the way, the archives have tons of gaps in it. The men's event for Deadlift/Pistol/2xUnder is completely missing. In men's sandbag event, only...

Re: How can i prevent cramps with nutrition

Well... bananas fixed my tight, overused muscles. I've never ever got a massage or foam rolling before. So I guess they both help.

Re: Losing Weight.

Try eating more nuts if you are concerned about weight loss. Just adding a handful of mixed nuts to one or two of your meals should decrease the speed of your weight loss.

Re: Paleo Snacks?!?!

Put some lemon juice into a glass of water. Chop a carrot into slices like french fries and put them in the glass. Add some salt if you want. The lemon juice prevents the carrot from turning dark. We...

Re: No energy once I started plaeo.

In my opinion, you are eating too less calories and carbs. An apple and "some" fruit you eat before bed are almost your only carb sources. I don't how you prepare your salads and post workout shakes....

Re: 100 Burpee Challenge

I have a question about burpees in general. When jumping up from squat position, do you explode up with max effort? I.e. jump as high as you can? Or do you save some power for the other burpees?...
