Looking a lot leaner since last I saw you. Nice.
Yes. If you want to promote healing increase your AA intake (eggs).
Do you really think 5-7 days of inactivity will lead to such a detrained state that it makes any difference in the long run of your lifting career?
You're just splitting hairs at this point.
Maybe not, but a higher 10RM generally does.
play with this
You said you were doing reverse DB fly (which is different from a rear delt fly) and DB rows.
Keep your DB rows, do the "dumbbell rear lateral raise" on a bench with a slight incline (15...
Add rear delt flyes to your split then.
Up to you. If you feel you need it then it can't hurt.
Then just use straps, who cares? This is bodybuilding, you're trying to build your hamstrings not compete for the strongest raw RDL.
Your forearms and grip strength are still getting hit plenty...
I was told today that I've been juicing for a year when I've never touched it before lol.
I mean lets say locking out your knee is 90 degrees, I stop at 70-80 degrees.
Idk man, sometimes the burn is unbearable on it.
I feel leg extensions like crazy but then again I don't completely lockout at the top either. Have you tried them like that?
Which exercises specifically irritate it?
Not really, but if you're keeping your push volume the same you're still going to exacerbate the problem in your elbow. You need to drop your volume for push movements until it heals and gradually...
Coming down as a flye and pressing it up like a DB bench press, yes. It allows you to lift heavier because you don't have to do a flye on the concentric portion, just press the dumbbells back up.
Then go a little heavier on them. Come down as your normally would on a DB fly but press the DB's back up. It's a fly/press variation.
Doesn't hurt to try. Let us know how it goes.
I grip the dumbbells with a tight grip. More control over the weight and considering that I'm not doing any direct trap work, I don't mind if my traps are activated more. Regardless of the situation,...
I understand that the total tonnage would be the same (if just going by rep targets) but this where I'm losing you guys. RP is still superior to straight sets because the shorter rest periods cause...
