    Ok, this makes sense. Olympic lifting is something I want to get in to. I can also see how more weight will eventually cause pain with my wrists like that. I do use wrist wraps, but will work on...

    Yep, you are right. I tried a wider grip today, and the bar felt loose, and the position felt awkward. I went back to my narrow grip, and it worked like a charm. Better yet, I started with the narrow...

    Yeah, I would love a wider grip! Right now, it takes me like 30 seconds just to move my hands together close enough while under the bar. I can't put them narrow on the bar first when getting under...

    Awesome. Plus, the pic was tilted to the right as well. But I am a perfectionist, and want it centered!



    I will. Thank you! Maybe I will try just a little higher a few times.
  • Thanks. Yes, I noticed that too. When I go under...

    Thanks. Yes, I noticed that too. When I go under and look in the mirror, the bar looks centered, but from the back, or when I do good mornings, I can see it slightly off center.
  • Ok, thank you. I will try that tomorrow. I just...

    Ok, thank you. I will try that tomorrow. I just don't want it to become high bar, since I get less power that way.
  • Is my low bar squat barbell position too low on my back?

    Do you think my low bar squat barbell resting position is too low on my back? A trainer, whom I am not working with, mentioned it might be too low. But it feels natural to me, and seems to slide into...
  • That's what I wanted to hear. Thanks AMeyer9.

    That's what I wanted to hear. Thanks AMeyer9.

    Awesome! Thanks for watching and taking the time to comment. I am always slow on the concentric for everything: squats, deadifts, overhead press, etc. LOL. It's just a lot of weight for me, but I...
  • Can you evaluate my squat form? 200 lb (91 kg) = 80% 1RP

    Hi, I finally managed to upload a squating video, from the side at knee level. This is low bar, at 200 lb. (91 kg), which is 80% of my 1RM. 4 reps. This is from Saturday, October 30, 2021.

    And of course, you are correct! I tend to worry too much. In a stickied post in the programs sub-forum here, a poster gave the 80/20 rule, which was to worry about the 20% of things that mattered;...

    Ok, well my research tends to agree with you. Thank you.

    [BTW, just as an aside: I did take the glutamine, as well as HMB, before bed today, and there was no pain, but that is normal after legs...

    What about Betaine Anhydrous? And L-Theanine to counter the ill effects of caffeine?
  • Can I substitute real meat instead of whey powder before and after workouts?

    My freezer is absolutely full of chicken and turkey breast and (non-breaded) fish fillets, so I need to start using them up. I aim for 160 g of complete proteins per day, which is my lean mass in...
  • I stopped glutamine for two days, and then was in agony last night

    So in a cost-cutting move, I decided to stop my L-Glutamine supplement for the last two days (9,000 mg per day). On the first night after stopping, which was the second night after legs day, I was...

    Ok, good advice both of you. Thank you. I guess I just get too anxious. I like the nuts idea.

    I've already lost 3 lb. to get less fat. 2 more pounds to go and all should be right for my ongoing...

    I had no idea about hormonal balance, so thank you. And 43 is young!



    Ok, thank you. I sometimes still want to subscribe to the old diet advice from the 80's/90's, which aimed to eliminate fat...

    Ok, all good advice! I do appreciate thid. When I had 8% fat yesterday, it was about 75 g, so I met your advice of 0.4g of fat per pound of body weight. There was no need for me to try to reach 15%!...
