Bananas are a good one, didn't think of thatOriginally Posted by Samoan-Z
OH YEAH... when i played american football in high school as a fat lineman you easily cramp banana's became a regular part of a diet... along with 42oz. steaks couple tbl spoons of bread fried in fatback and about 100 penuts Mmmm just kidding... but banana were seriously part of my everday diet, my mom got pissed cause i went through them like water.
And yea that makes sense i did notice sore hips in the wide over the narrow for quad striking.
My meals the other day looked like this:
1lb Hamsteak w/ 4 whole eggs and 1/3lb of hashbrowns. 4 slices of Light Rye Toast
3 Chicken Pita Wraps w/ light mayo (each wrap weighed around 1/2lb of JUST chicken and Mayo)
A boost shake after 3rd period
1 1/2 lbs of Chicken and Mushroom Soup Rice and a baked potato w/ fresh maple bacon bits
It was a good day :coolguy:
Even JornT won't have a problem with this paper.
I've been banging on for years about muscle imbalances at the shoulder. Having experienced the beginings of imbalance problems myself I can say that this is not something to dismiss. Basically this is another piece of evidence saying that people lifting weights just aren't getting it right. We do need to be carefull about recruiting the correct muscles and making sure there are prehab exercises and balance to our programs.
So make sure that you are hitting the external rotators and the lower trapezius.Quote
Another nail in the coffin for stance width changing muscle recruitment in the thigh.
The only thing left to do is to stop letting personal trainers and BBers give people advice and this myth may just die!
And this one is YAY Front Squats!Quote
Main reason I'm posting these is my journal updates just arrived.......Quote
Ok this evening I made up a great little routine for finishing off the legs.
What you do is unload the bar you have just been using for squats, deadlifts or whatever.
Ok, so far so simple.
The trick is that each plate you pull off you press overhead and then squat for a set of 8-10 reps. Put the plate down and then pull the next plate and repeat.
The rest you get between sets is from walking from one end of the bar to the other to remove a plate. No more no less.
After trying it out tell me how much you hate finishers

Don't use more than a couple of kilos in resisted running unless you want to mess up your running style.
Strongman isn't great for your back but it is great at getting your body to work together. Who'd have thought that you could lift more than your joints allow?! This is just a great read:Quote
I can already hear the from powerlifters everywhere:Quote
Yet another study to show that body fat estimations, especially skin folds, are just so inaccurate. Really only useful to show progress.Quote
I've just read this interesting article about speed development. It states a measure of how much additional force you need to produce for every bit of weight gained for running.
I'd actually like a better reference than the one that was used (a certification manual for a coaching course). Has anyone seen the original research cited?Quote
This is the paper that shows that Front Squats are better. Enjoy Bulky
I still like doing back squats, but in any given year should probably spend more time doing other types of lower loading squats like front, bulgarian and split squats.Quote
Also a paper on the effectiveness of belts. Yep they work. But have a look at what data they decided to present. Their significant results were for loads of +90% of 1RM. So belts really only have a place on heavy singles and doubles (unless you get more reps with your 90%).
sweet article. well this defends my transition to fronties for sure. thanks alot for the effort tim
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
