    i'm not sure ive ever encountered this issue. Could be as simple as just placing a bit more focus on keeping your feet planted. Perhaps have someone watch your sets (or record yourself) and see if you can pin down when exactly your foot starts to creep forward. I cant imagine that there would be much you could do to correct this other than focusing on keeping it planted or securing it down somehow. Perhaps you could rest your heels on a 5 lb plate.

    I have no clue brah. Ive never dealt with it before. It would also be irresponsible of me of me to offer advice since its a major medical issue as well.

    hello, has anyone had this problem before, this is the first for me. as i was struggling to lift heavy on the incline bench press. i started hyper ventilating on my last rep and felt a migraine and some eye pain coming on. i am sure it's due to blood pressure or something. however the eye pain has lasted for about 24 hours now. it feels bruised. has anyone had this happen before? should i go see an opthamologist or an optometrist? i want to get tested for glaucoma.

    i was certain i was breathing properly. but since i just came back from my 1 week vacation that is what most likely caused this.

    It sounds like an exertion headache (aka exercise induced migraine or tension headache). They usually manifest with a tightening or squeezing pain in a halo pattern around the crown of your skull, originating from your occiput (the knot on the back of your head; where your skull meets the top of your vertebrae; also the origin of the upper fibers of the traps). The eye pain usually comes from the inflammation and irritation of the muscles around the occiput will swell and impinge the occipital nerve. Though this sounds a bit out of place since you were on incline and not deadlift or squats (exercises where the entire body is engaged and the tendency to hold you breath on the concentric motion is greatest). In a squat/deadlift, the upper back is engaged (retracts/adducts the scapulas and pokes the chest out) and we tend to naturally over extend out necks and face the ceiling.

    What most likely cause of this chain of reactions is bad posture: forward shoulders, and an excessively forward head position. When you sit with your head forward you are simultaneously lengthening your posterioir neck muscles AND asking them to contract to support the weight of your big ass head. This can often result in the actual SHORTENING in the muscle fiber lengths in the back of the neck, which is no bueno. Usually takes months of PT to reverse at best.

    -Try to stop looking at the ceiling when you do your reps. A neutral position is best.
    -Just look straight ahead but Don't focus on anything in particular. Allow your gaze to rise up and lower with your body. Or you could close your eyes.
    -If this is common, then your neck is probably already naturally tight so you may want to devote time to stretch
    -Stay hydrated

    Its a repetitive overuse injury stemmed from injury to the forearm flexor tendons. If you are a prominent weight lifter, the most likely cause is curling with a straight bar. Switch to a cambered (aka EZ curl) bar.
    But here is some mmore info on it:

    thanks, idk i've been doing this exercise for years as a staple. i think you're right though, i just came back from a week trip overseas and didn't do any gyming. but it's been a week and i still feel my eye took some permanent damage. like it feels pressured and really off compared to my left eye.

    better get it checked out then. you'll feel better knowing that your eye is fine rather than the damage compounding ovedr the next few years possibly getting worse with each lift

    *One of our Most important GROUP of muscles. To stand upright, our core muscles contract in a specific sequence, otherwise we'd have to use our arms to brace ourselves. Also, when we are performing somethign at a VERY high energy expenditure, our abdominals contract hard enough to aid in forced respiration (where the rib cage is forecefully expanded in order to take in more oxygen). Not to mention the stronger the core is, the more stable to bones and joints of the hips and low back are.

    Wrist size isnt a HUGE factor in bb'ing. its more about denisty, which comes with the territory in resistance training. I'm 6'2 (52" chest, 18.5" neck, 18" biceps for reference) and my wrists are right at 8" circumference which isnt big at all.I wouldnt mind being more like this fella though:

    Wrist size isnt a HUGE factor in bb'ing. its more about denisty, which comes with the territory in resistance training. I'm 6'2 (52" chest, 18.5" neck, 18" biceps for reference) and my wrists are right at 8" circumference which isnt big at all.I wouldnt mind being more like this fella though:
    Is 7.25" wrist circumference good at five foot eleven and a half inches tall?

    Hey Tank whats the general consensus on rehab as far as resting something vs lightly moving it?

    I'm working construction and pulled something in my front shoulder while I was doing a rowing-type motion about head level, feels right behind the first head of the deltoid, this was like 3 weeks ago and still hurts, getting better but holy chit its been around a while.

    depends on the severity of the injury. If somethign was torn, then you need to keep from moving it completely. If you pinched something, then minimizing use (mainly from heavy use and lifting) should suffice.

    tank what is your opinion on working out with migraines? i get bad migraines fairly often where i throw up, (twice a month on average, middle of the night, or waking up,) i think due to stress, anxiety, or maybe cold symptoms, and usually just skip the gym, as i think it would make them worse. googling says exercising actually might help, but idk.

    low back is part of your core.
    Core = Major muscles included are the pelvic floor muscles, transversus abdominis, internal and external obliques, abdominals, erector spinae (one of the names for the collective group of low back muscles),

    The legs are great to keep developed because as we get older, we lose power (the speed, not necessarily the strength) in our legs which is the main contributor to what makes older people fall. They have the strength to catch themselves, but they dont have the SPEED to get their feet under them to catch themselves. This doesnt usually become and issue until after age 70 though. Studies show however that people who are older and keep their cores strong, have less of the common functional and normal wear and tear issues than their "unfit" counterparts

    Ah ok. That makes more sense now.

    Overall those a lifetime of lifting will prevent this?
