Any MI40 Ladies??!

recovery: CNS vs. muscle

When doing Stronglifts 5x5, there are times when the rest between sets could be as much as 3-5 minutes. That's a long time! I'll do it, though, when the situation calls for it. I recently read somewhere (can't recall if it was in a Stronglifts email or what) that the central nervous system takes...

ever use the hack squat machine face-down?

Lately I've seen a couple women doing this. I don't know them at all so I didn't want to ask the reason why they were doing this. But I figured someone here must know! I did, out of curiosity *try* this face-down hack squat thingy. It was awkward to get into position, but depending on foot...
