    As for those, I sometimes feel a sort of snapping in my elbows.

    On the other hand locking out Rows and chins I suppose would not be a problem..?

    This is similar to a technique known as 'constant tension' but I always thought about it as an obscure and 'bro' thing. Now it seems like maybe some people would benefit from that? (me as well )
    I think it's got buried, so I'll try luck again

    Whoops. I always want people to avoid locking out joints if possible. There are some exceptions when doing any extreme powerlifting or olympic lifting. But for you, thats not the case.

    The main thing that helps people from locking out (without seeming "bro") is to simply use a slower rep tempo. At the end of the concentric portion of the lift, it will be easier to transition back to eccentric before lockout occurs.

    Hi YOlked ! Thanks in advance for info you may have. My question: Is it possible for a person to have a higher NUMBER vs. larger SIZE of fast twitch muscle fibers in any particular muscle? Meaning, if someone had lean legs, for example, but was more explosive (jumping, sprinting) rather than good at endurance events (long distance running and swimming), could that actually indicate a greater percentage of fast twitch fibers, while the actual size of those same fibers would partly explain the lack of "thickness"? I heard this somewhere recently; I am curious to know what you may have learned about this or your own opinion on it. Thanks, again!

    Fiber types in athletes is a very complicated subject. I could write a book on this but Ill save you the details.

    Heres what you need to know:
    1) The general population has about the same distribution of fast twitch and slow twitch muscle fibers.
    2) Muscle fiber distribution can be changed! However, not that much. (5-15% in most cases)
    3) World class athletes have a crazy distribution of muscle fiber types. However, its a combination of their freak genetics and world class training. (Meaning, you're not one of these people... But you can see how you might be on this spectrum when compared to the general population.)




    Heres the bottom line:
    Its not about muscle fiber types. Its about training adaptations. Whatever you train for, thats what gains you will elicit. There are fast twitch, and slow twitch adaptations. Almost ALL training elicits some fast and slow twitch adaptations up to a certain point. Only when we specify our training, for long periods of time, do we get an uneven balance of fiber distribution.

    You can see here that fast twitch muscle is larger (see: cross sectional area), however we have to look at the distribution of fast/slow to see if it can actually make a visible difference.

    After doing a few pulse ups, it feels like my L1 / L2 being ripped out, if I try to continue. Have no core strength here trying to work on it. Is it because I am doing it wrong?

    Hay!!! Pls can u ask my question I made a thread about?

    Can I Get Rid of veins that have appeared on my forearms from yoga?

    Hello

    I went on a yoga course for 3 weeks and did daily practise. During this I learnt some poses which put pressure on your forearms like Forearm down dog (I.e
    Dolphin), side forearm plank etc. My veins on the top of my forearms started to show very slightly so I stopped my yoga practise. 

    When i got back to my country I stopped again to be so physically active but then after 2 months I did some forearm balances and the day later I noticed the veins have come out on my forearms. 

    Are they likely to go away if I stop doing any forearm poses? I really don't want them to get any worse and I would really love it if they disappeared. They are worse on my right side where I have less muscle and am weaker. I am in two minds of what to do?part of me thinks I should continue with forearm balances to strengthen the muscle to thicken the skin on top and mabe that will lessen the appearance of the veins, But then I'm worried that if I do that it'll actually make it worse and push the vein out more. I am confused tho cos I know people who do full freestanding forearm balances and their arms are fine. I'm not sure if body fat is the issue because I eat a lot and I still have some nice fat on my tummy- well I think if body fat was the problem my body fat would disappear totally off the stomach before it did my arms?

    Thanks in advance

    It is a body fat problem, the less you have the more your veins will protrude out from under your skin. The forearms usually retain less fat so they most often show, regardless of how much fat you retain around your waste. There are some things you can do, by avoiding vasodilator like caffeine, alcohol etc. Also you could intake more salt that would cause you to retain more water to hide the veins a little bit. However, you can always do a pinch test on your skin when your veins are not visible vs when they are visible. The thickness of the skin / fat could be significantly different between the two.

    The best? 60 minutes of high intensity resistance training and 20 minutes of LISS cardio.

    In actuality, anything that elevates your heart rate over 135 BMP for a sustained amount of time is great.
    Yoga
    Squats
    Jogging
    Ab exercises
    pushups
    Jump Rope

    Literally anything can help you loose weight if you create a plan and stick to it. Nutrition included.

    Great question. Lat Pulldown or assisted pull-up machine are suitable substitutes.

    These bands would be the ultimate training aid to pullups

    I steer most people away from that exercise simply because too much momentum can be used and its a technical exercise.

    Build your core strength with:

    -Decline Situps
    -Knee Ups (not toes to bar)
    -Rope crunches
    -Planks, Side planks
    -All compound exercises (especially squats, deadlifts, lunges, standing presses, and rows)

    Based on this question, im assuming you're a woman. To that assumption I would like to ask: What is wrong with veins? Its a display of muscle and lower body fat.

    Is this not attractive to you?

    Thank you, i pinched and the skin where the vein is less visible is a lot (IMO) thicker and plumper like teres more meat inside it. The other arm where hte vein is more visible is looser. My doctor said its because i use my left arm more because im left handed and that its the same 4 everyone. I didnt ask her about the vein because i was hoping it wud go away on its own after a few days (it hasnt). Is it a skin problem then? IT is because i have less muscle in the arm and therefore the skin is thinner? I read that when you exercise a lot it stimulates collagen and elastin so thatd explain why the skin is thinner. But if I exercise my right arm more, it would plump the skin but on the other hand strengthening the msucle would push the vein out even further!? what should I do. im so confused x

    also does breath have anything to dow ith it!!?!!? because i used to be quite good at calm breathing, i did a lot of yoga before. But lately because of grief my breathing has become quiet shallow and faster like i feel like im not breathing properly like i was before . on and off the mat. Does this have anything to do with it. lastly lol i know it sounds a bit off but could it indicate poor circulation in the arms? Because ive adopted the habit of walking with my arms folded so most of the time my arms arent free like they are when you walk with hands by your side. Could this have anything to do with. im jsut trying to think what it could be because compared ot ohters who have the veins im no way near as thin or active i do not feel i am skinny like angelique jolie

    I only see real gains when I do high rep and high intensity exercise. For instance my deadlift increased by 80kg in a short space of time when I was using an 8-12 rep range but when I started using a 1-4 rep range I saw no progress and it negatively effected my training. Is this due to something wrong with the way I'm training heavy or does my body just not respond to heavy training?

    I was thinking of ways I could mix up my back day. I want to do some weighted back raises on a back extension bench then just go straight into a YTWL Dumbbell Raise Series as soon as i'm done with the set of back raises.

    My question to you is if you think the back extension bench will provide enough support to do the dumbbell series or I could open myself up to an injury?

    Hey y0lked thank you for making this thread! I hyperextend my Rippetoe Squats and 5 step Deadlifts. How do I gain the kinesthetic sense to straighten my back out without flexion or hyper-extension during my lifts?

Because ive adopted the habit of walking with my arms folded so most of the time my arms arent free like they are when you walk with hands by your side. Could this have anything to do with. im jsut trying to think what it could be because compared ot ohters who have the veins im no way near as thin or active i do not feel i am skinny like angelique jolie

    It has nothing to do with breathing.

    Within hours of the workout.... a solid amount, but then it goes down again.

    When comparing week 1 to week 8 there is no increase in testosterone from squats.

    An injury would only occur if you allow the back to get into a poor position. Do you know the mechanics of the lumbar spine?

    Hi, maybe you would now why on earth the conventional planks (even bodyweight) could cause medial side below the knee pain? There's only MCL that could be hurting, right? there is the spot, approximately:




    Little background which may matter: I have not trained upper and lower body for 2-3 months properly due to multiple injuries.
    A week ago started to do bodyweight planks, daily. After few sessions, started to feel some instability of my left knee, especially when rotating hip/tibia internally, later the pain occured.
    Previously in my training, I did them weighted without issues.

    Thank you.

    Hi, more suggestion for exercise Squats. The squat is another great lifting exercise that is particularly helpful to the lower body. The activity straightforwardly works the hips, hamstrings and glutes. It likewise in a roundabout way reinforces your center and even your abdominal area whenever finished with weight see more info about best muscle exercise visit this site muscleseek(dot)com.
