When do you use a belt?

Just curious. I'm beginning a new training cycle in a couple of weeks and I'm mulling over a couple of different things, specifically when to wear a belt.

Quad work on a sprained ankle

Sprained my ankle playing football over a month ago. Its very slow in healing, and I haven't been able to squat or do the lifts. I've been doing good mornings, deadlifts, and some pulls. I don't think that I'm getting enough quad work from this though. Leg extensions are terrible for knees and...

romaleos 2?

I have a pair on order from east bay, but besides them and rogue, no one else carries them. I was googling them earlier and ran across a few discussions that Nike stopped making them and rogue, bought a huge supply? I can't even find them directly on Nike s website. I just thought it was odd. Any...

Talking My 142.5 kg Clean

So I went into the gym the other day and decided to give cleans a go. I haven't done them in several years, and I've never trained weightlifting anyway, so I thought you guys might get a kick out of my terrible technique. I think I'm going to go to a Crossfit gym on their open day and give...

Bulking vs Constant Weight?

So I was recently wondering whether or not, for an 85kg lifter who is relatively new but wants to compete @ 85, I should bulk up and then cut down, or just stay at 85kg LEAN and just maintain and gain strength.

Clean Form Check

I'm still trying to get the technique for my cleans/power cleans down so any help would be great! These were meant to be power cleans but the weight was pretty heavy for me so they sort of turned into full cleans on some of the reps. By the looks of the video, it looks like I need to drop under...

Adipowers vs romaleos 2

Personally i own 3 romaleos and 1 adipower and all i can say is Adipowers- Better for oly lifts(c+j and snatch) while Romaleos- Better for back squats/front squats/ wrapped squatting for powerlifting Any of you guys agree?
