Re: 2013 Open, Regionals and Games Thread

To all the naysayers who said with absolute certainty that unless you have a butterfly, you can't get past the 8 minute mark...

Well have you guys seen Mikko's 227 performance? Holy #@$% :notworth:

Re: BCAAs in juice container

Re: LP and deep squats

On the contrary, not squatting deep on a high bar might be bad for the knees. Going deep ensures the hamstrings are used to drive you out of the hole.

Re: Adidas PowerLift Trainers

The man from Uzbekistan in the -94kg today, Efranov, was wearing them!

Edit: On second thought they might be the Power Perfect II, I have no idea how to tell them apart!

Re: Adidas PowerLift Trainers

Been watching the World Weightlifting Championships in Paris and lots of athletes are using this shoe. If it's good enough for them to hit world records with, it's good enough for me! :)

Re: "healthy" chinese food

I would assume you're referring to Americanized Chinese food. In which case, steamed beef and broccoli would be your best bet.

Traditional Chinese food is actually pretty healthy so if you get the...

Re: Kipping weighted pullups

Grease The Groove. Basically do something over and over and over until you get good at it. For pull-ups, this would be doing pull-ups throughout the day.

Edit: Matt beat me to it!

Re: Kevin's Log

Saw you posted a thread about getting a bearing bar a while back cause you were looking to get more into the Olympic Lifts. How'd that turn out? I see your last workout has some Snatch and C&J work!

Re: PR 286lbs Snatch and 330lbs Clean and Jerk

Hey Jake - how are you able to power jerk so explosively even at 150kg? I watched your 167kg jerk on YouTube and it's phenomenal.

Also, any reason you choose to power jerk over split jerking?
