    First 3 day block I do legs/pull/push:
    On leg day I'm currently doing rack pulls.
    On pull day I do several sets of pull ups, then a few sets of dumbbell rows (because lower back still sore from...

    Haven't been getting full workouts in. Was sick for a while, I've got extra work this month, and I'm still sleeping 10-12 hours a night. Today was pull day. Pull ups, dumbbell rows, left. 45 minutes....

    My go to is pull up variation. If I program deadlift on back day I do that first. I don't feel it working my back except for my lower back, but my pull ups are significantly weaker after deads. Grip...

    Aaron's random stuff

    Keep meaning to post here and keep starting with too much info and deleting it.

    My log is on paper, but I don't have much extra other than "felt good" or "sick today".

    To start I'll write out...

    Yeah idk what happened there. I don't use straps cuz I just haven't really needed them and haven't been lifting very long. Haven't given it serious thought. The only times grip is an issue is if I'm...

    Figure I have to start doing more than doubles. I suck at higher reps (like 3). Went for triples at 405 today. Definitely at my limit. 3rd set, 2nd rep, something went wonky and I got in a weird...

    True, but saying "I'm cutting" seems like a nice way of saying one is dieting without publicly admitting to being fat. People like to say "Oh but you aren't fat!" even if you are absolutely fat....

    Except that every source I find says 60% with 90 seconds rest and slow eccentrics. I doubt I could get even get 2x10 with that protocol. Slowing down the eccentric part makes the sets tons harder for...
  • German volume training, how is it possible?

    I was looking into high volume and found this "program" (more of a rep scheme) called German volume training. 10x10 with 90" rest and slow eccentric phase. Several days rest before going again. This...

    I wouldn't consider a butt target a tripping hazard. I mean, controlling your steps should be much easier than squatting the weight. And the target shouldn't be in your walking path.

    I've done push ups on my knuckles most of my life, always found them to be easier that way. I like the neutral wrist position. It's comfortable. It increases range of motion a tad, but still think...

    How does the bar slip out? Wouldn't it have to physically jump up and over the thumb?

    I would grab a ball and put it on a plate as low as I could go without buttwink to give myself a target. Haven't been doing it lately but it really helped during strength phase. This after I spent...

    Thanks for the detailed answer!


    I sometimes wonder if this is the main reason squats still feel so weird to me and why I can push my muscles harder in deadlift and bench press.

    Perhaps you could just slow down the reps. I find if i do slow eccentrics I have to reduce weight by about 20% compared to quick reps.

    To me bear just looks fat and makes you look like a dumb henchman (think bouncer). Also makes you look uncoordinated and like any ninja could take you down.
    I wouldn't say 16%-18% is quite fat...
