Re: Shoulder Press: what's legal?

It's easy to do what the OP is suggesting on a single rep as well. Rack the bar, actively pull your elbows down to create stretch, press the bar.

Please point out where in the press rules it...

Re: Front Squat Check

If dropping the weight, keep this quote in mind.

Re: Front Squat Check

What's the weight? 232lbs? When I started FS, I found that limited ankle mobility meant I had to drop my *** back, this caused my body to pitch forward at the bottom, and a painful rack position...

Re: rogue bar vs BR bar, still cant decide?

I went with the Rogue bar, for similar reasons. I didn't want center knurling, I find it scratches me up on cleans and front squats. The black oxide finish looks nice and it was $50 cheaper.

Re: does chlorine corrode watch bands or other watch parts?

I believe this can be caused by a nickel allergy and a reaction with the nickel content in the metal. I react to the nickel in the metal they use to make a lot of glass frames, so I go with plastic...

Re: Information on Bumper plates

I've had my Rogue branded ones for a few months and have had no problems at all. Maybe I shouldn't be, but I drop the bar with a pair of 15lb plates and haven't noticed any sags or bends.

Re: Input needed: Northern Lights Squat Stands

northern lights is a Canadian manufacturer, probably why you've never heard of it down in the US. no opinion on their squat stands but from what I've seen of their other stuff, quality is very good.

Re: Help identifying rower model?

Just an update. I picked up the rower for $50. I haven't bought new batteries to test out the monitor yet, but the rower seems fine. For $50 I really can't complain.

Re: Hook Grip

I can't rack the bar properly if I don't release the hook grip on cleans. I'd say that's reason to release the grip at the top.

Re: Cost of shipping for bumpers typically.

with the garage gym store, I think it depends on which bumpers you buy, but their hi-temp bumpers ship directly from the hi-temp factory in AL. So shipping isn't that cheap. When I contacted...

Re: Clean and Front Squat

the clean looked more like a reverse curl once it passed the thighs. from this angle you can really see how far the bar path deviates from going straight up.

Re: Help identifying rower model?

I don't own this unit. I found this in a for sale ad and I was told that the electronics no longer work. I'm trying to gauge it's value to make an offer.
