Re: Bench Press/Pushup Improvement

yes, long arms really does hamper bench strength. I know lots of long limbed guys that have deadlifted over 500lbs (long arms help on the deadlift) but can't bench 220lbs. But that being said, bench...

Re: good squat? bad squat?

The mechanics are pretty much there for a high bar squat, although you could afford to keep your chest up a bit more. The main thing to work on now it to make the whole thing more dynamic. It's too...

Re: Do it yourself fish oil?

Fish oil is about convenience. If you're going to all the trouble of making fish oil, how about simply eating real fish? A tin of sardines is going to be cheaper, tastier, has the equivalent of about...

Re: Back Squat question

There's nothing wrong with any of the above analysis, but it really just comes down to this: keeping your chest up and having someone shouting at you to keep your chest up when you fail to do it on...

Re: Press with Lifting Belt?

^^^^

I like the Starr advice. For someone who has existing lower back issues may have difficulty perceiving proper extension of the back while doing an exercise, a belt provides a very useful...

Re: back extention is not a functional movement.

When I hear "functional", I take it mean that an exercise produces an effect that carries over to how the body is designed to function, and not an exercise that simply mimics an action our body...

Re: EggBeaters in the Zone????

Be aware that eating raw egg whites can lead to biotin deficiency.
Egg yolks are one of nature's best dietary sources of biotin.

Awesome website by the way ;)

Don't worry, I usually don't eat any spreads, and I usually cook with butter or even better, ghee, and measure my olive oil dressings in seconds poured. It wouldn't be...

Re: Oils

I've read the wiki entry too and it actually says 80% of Canadian canola is genetically modified to be herbicide resilient.

My MeadowLea margarine says it is from 100% GMO free canola and sunflower...

Re: gluten... what's the big deal?

I know someone with biopsy-confirmed coeliac disease who after completely eliminating grains for 3 years can now have small amounts of gluten daily without any symptoms whatsoever.

Re: Vegetarians and muscle size/definition

A vegan I know put up 410lb squat, 335lb bench and 475lb deadlift in his first powerlifting comp. He's currently tracking to kill those numbers next month. He has pea protein shakes to help...

Re: my fat blocks are mostly olive oil.. is that OK?

You're better off cooking with coconut oil, butter, or lard than EVOO. Put EVOO on salads, over vegetables, or use it in sauces.

Re: Glycogen concentration on low carb diet.

I'm sure someone can give a scientific answer. But from what I've observed, I'd say, yes, it would have to. In powerlifting comps those who are trying to make weight are cutting back really hard on...

Re: PR Squat at 250

Number 2 and 5 are *just* parallel, the rest are high.

They need to be deeper, but this is partly because you're also dropping your chest/leaning forward a bit, which takes the hamstrings out of the...

Re: New Strength Article vs CFSB

Like Alex said, 5x5 sets across might be appropriate for an intermediate lifter. It's too much volume for a novice. I think 3x5 sets across is a good compromise with volume that works for lots of...

Re: the comparative merits of olympic and power lifting

I agree. But it is relevant to in the sense that form follows function, and because the assumption that powerlifters are strong but have dubious athletic ability is premised on the picture many...

Re: the comparative merits of olympic and power lifting

I have no idea, but I don't see what it's relevant to comparative merits of participating in either of these great sports. Does training make them monstrous sprinters or are these lifters successful...

Re: the comparative merits of olympic and power lifting

I hope the inference is not that powerlifters don't train with this in mind, or that powerlifting doesn't develop power, because that would fundamentally misunderstand how many powerlifting training...
