Re: Deadlift grip issues

I can't even imagine doing anything other than the alternate grip. I have tried and it feels like the bar is going to slip out of my hands. I figure there is a good reason why the NSCA, NASM, ACSM, and ACE ALL recommend the alternate grip.

Just took the CSCS exam.

Alright, so I just took the CSCS exam and realized that I cannot get the exam results back until my college transcripts have arrived. I overnight mailed them my transcripts, called them and they said they cannot predict how long it will take for them to confirm a pass or a fail. Can anyone else who ...

Re: Any good bodybuilding books?

The NSCA's essentials of strength and conditioning has a great chapter about periodization and program design for all sorts of different goals including bodybuilding. The book is to teach you how to better train your clients but it is also extremely useful for expanding your knowledge on how to bett...

Re: Almond milk the best choice?

The local Whole Foods has been selling Flax Milk. Really good stuff that I have been drinking along with my flaxseed oil. Been noticing a lot less inflammation as a result of my high omega-3 fatty acid intake.

Re: Bodybuilding and Swimming

Swimming is an excellent form of cardio and has the lowest chance of injury since you weigh so much less underwater. Like all cardio though it can be catabolic. You should probably limit duration to 20 minutes per session and if you have a heart rate monitor, try to keep it around 85 percent of your...

Re: What do you think is the most overrated exercise?

Heh, I'll do bicep curls only if I'm about to go out on a date and want that pumped up look on my arms. I think bicep curls are probably one of the first exercises most of us did when we first walked into a gym and that's fine. Anyone who does it in a squat rack though deserves a kick in the nuts.

Re: ACSM or nasm

I'm NSCA certified although I have the lesser known NSCA-CPT certification which isn't as reputable as the NSCA-CSCS. Still, it seems to be pretty well respected in the industry and you only need a high school diploma and CPR certification to be eligible for it. I've never seen the CSCS certificatio...

What do you think is the most overrated exercise?

I think the one I hate the most is the clamshell ab crunch machine. Every time I go to the gym I will always see some overweight guy or gal spend most if not their entire duration at the gym doing nothing but high volume/low intensity reps. It's frustrating because it indicates to me that these peop...

Re: Squats

Squats are great. Just remember that if you want to activate the hip extensors, the glutes primarily then you need to at least squat until your knees and your ass are parallel. I see almost nobody do squats properly at the gym. They'll just bend their knees a little bit and that's it, then they'll a...

Re: Toxic Gyms - Are they worth the tradeoff with minimal ha

No it's not worth it. Exercise should be about improving and maintaining good health, it doesn't make sense to compromise your health while exercising.

Re: Do you include olympic lifts into your routine?

The prowler is also a great way to punish a client who complains you're not training them hard enough. That and burpees. :D

Yeah, it seems that way. I must be using more muscles for the backsquat otherwise I wouldn't be lifting as much. It does however seem that my core gets a better workout doing the front squats though.

Re: Any pre-made vegan shakes out there?

Go for the Vega brand protein shakes. 25 grams of complete protein per scoop, low carbohydrate, no artificial sweetners. All plant based protein, good stuff.

Re: Do you include olympic lifts into your routine?

Yeah, for me it's the snatch I have a bit of trouble with. The clean and jerk I love though. No doubt about learning proper technique. I've heard that people who want to learn them should go for the USAW certification and avoid Crossfit. Even though Crossfit includes olympic lifts in their routine t...
