Re: UFC 100, who is going to win and is anyone else going?

Am I the only person who saw GSP put Alves on his *** with a punch? GSP will use what works; against a good striker he will use takedowns often. Against a good wrestler he will utilize his striking...

Re: New Valor Squat Stands

They certainly look like they can handle more than 250 lbs. Perhaps the max load refers to the safety spotters?

Re: Proper use of chains

I say give it a shot! Keep a log and let us know how it goes. If it works for you I will probably go get some chains for myself.

Re: Ufc 100

I think Mir has gotten some that old hunger back. I wouldn't put money on it, but I think he will pull the upset against Lesnar.

Re: Med balls for squat depth?

This is going to seem funny, but I use an empty 8-pack? Capri Sun juice box.
It is pretty low but I am only 5'6".

Re: Thoughts on BJ Penn.

If they ever do have a rematch, GSP is going to have so much extra motivation that he will make BJ look even worse than he did for the last fight.

Re: Study on Front vs. Back Squats

I had a feeling that would be the case. I have read so many crap studies referenced in bodybuilding magazines when I was in my 20's that I assume that most are crap.

Re: Study on Front vs. Back Squats

Hard to have an opinion without more info on the methods. Was the weight the same? Did they use a powerlifting style back squat or a high bar style? Did they go below parallel? I couldn't get the...

Re: am i low bar or high?

Low Bar.Put the bar on your traps. Go as low as possible with the bar until it feels like it may fall off your back. Roll it just a touch higher for safety.

High bar.Put the bar as high on your...

Re: GSP VS Thiago Alves

Fitch's usual gameplan is a touch of kickboxing to set up a takedown then work the ground&pound. Sound familiar?

The Kos/Alves fight was scored 30-27,30-27,29-28. So much for the brutal...

Re: GSP VS Thiago Alves

I think you should watch that fight again. Here is a quote from the UFC website.

Re: GSP VS Thiago Alves

Watch the Alves/Fitch fight as well as the Alves /Koschek fight. GSP manhandled both of these guys while Alves had trouble with both.

GSP will win easily if he follows the same gameplan.

Re: GSP vs BJ Penn? Comments?

Spanky pants...that's hysterical!

I think the first fight could have gone either way. This time around GSP is going to be bigger and stronger. If it goes past the second round BJ will have gassed...

Re: Help me see my knees!

Re: Help me see my knees!

If you draw a vertical line at the tip of your toes you will see that the distance your knees travel in relation to that line is inconsistant. At the bottom of some of the reps, your knees do move...

Re: Pullups and... Tricep pain.

Interesting. I have a pain in my distal triceps that I think came from doing weightd pullups. I always did them overhanded and recently noticed less discomfort when I do pullups with a supinated grip.

If you can't get the bench do weighted dips. Forget about using that incline ab bench. Looks DANGEROUS.

wrestlers tend to get better at jujitsu very quickly. Lesnar's being an NCAA champ speaks to his work ethic and athletic ability. Lesnar's size is a big problem for Randy. During the Sylvia fight he...
