No more bumping 10yr old threads on my watch...closed.
When you're a noob, you can gain muscle AND lose fat for a short time. Working abs IS important. It maintains good hip health.
If you didn't intend to convey a dirty interpretation then GFY and enjoy your mod negs. lol
Standard response to friction on descent. You'll see the same thing with first timer bench shirts, squat suits, slingshots...etc. I'm not trying to hate on you, but you have to man up and deal with...
Last time I was maxing on squats I had 415 (I think) on the bar and really grinded it out. I knew I screwed myself before the lift mentally so I got really amped up for the next attempt...
I'm picking up what you're putting down. lol
Good question man.
I like them at a higher rep range so there is a higher chance of good form and MMC. The back is one of the hardest areas to really engage IMO.
I've never really put a lot of reading into TM, but what I'm reading now isn't flattering. Probably not your fault as I assume you just posted the program and didn't make a whole bunch of changes.
Look at the Fierce 5 link in my sig below. The third post in that thread has a postural program specifically designed for fixing kyphosis.
You're already doing what you should be. Doesn't sound like you need to change anything man. Trust your program (assuming you are running a popular beginner routine.) It takes years to build good...
Well like mentioned by others, just because your bench increased it doesn't mean that's the best approach. I am positive if that is your entire routine you already have kyphosis (look it up.) First...
If you started light then you should be able to IMO. The progression is slow enough.
Pushups are a fantastic exercise. When they are difficult enough to do 3x10 and struggle they are superior to a bench press in many ways. The weighted vest will allow you to progress them for a few...
I got you bro
It works best IMO when tweaked into an UL.
Does 6 presses and a chest fly every other day....you might try using a real program man. I'll be honest, what you're doing is pretty awful.
5/3/1 is great programming and highly customizable. It is geared more for neural efficiency and strength peaking, but you will still grow on it. If you read enough on Wendler he...
I wasn't trying to say that avoiding lateral delt exercises is the best way to get good delts. lol. I was just trying to show that it isn't always needed.
When I'm healthy I do a PPL and UL combo....
Trust the program man. A lot of people tried upping reps on compounds and the results were a miserable failure.
