Re: Getting Serious about Getting Big

I think flax oil is a good fish oil replacement if you want to take some sort of oil. I'm not sure how effective either of those are at helping with joint pain, though. Definitely start foam rolling, take advantage of it if your gym has them. What are you currently doing for warm-up and cool-down?

Re: Using straps to increase grip strength?

That's pretty interesting, I haven't seen back and grip strength correlated that way before but it makes sense. I personally like to go double overhand for as long as I can (until the weight is so heavy that my grip won't hold up to it anymore) before using the straps. I don't really like the mixed ...

Re: Getting Serious about Getting Big

Yeah, finding a team or a training partner to lift with is one of the best things you can do imo, but do what you can as you can. You can still get really big and strong training on your own, too. 5x5 is a great program, I used my own version of that to get to 2 plate bench, 3 plate squat and 4 plat...

Re: My log: Training for a sub 3.30 marathon

Wooow, such a gorgeous view. I'm jelly =P. I wish powerlifting meets were held in that kind of setting, haha. Glad to hear you're alright man. I got lost on a hike the other week, but fortunately I was carrying plenty of food and water.

Re: Getting Serious about Getting Big

My weak bench keeps me from feeling like I'd be a true competitor at a powerlifting meet, and I want to overcome that hurdle both as a mental block (continually thinking I'm not strong enough to compete) and a physical block (I gotta get myself to at least a 150lb bench to be competitive, realistic...

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

Have you ever seen anybody about your shoulder? Did you injure it at some point/do you know what's causing the pain?

Re: Powerlifting on consecutive days

Nah, not stupid unless maybe you're crazy sore/under-recovered and you plan on going super hard on the deadlifts today. Sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do when the rest of life is getting in the way. You won't be able to come close to overtraining unless you start training multiple times per d...

Do you have any vids of you lifting mate? Would love to have a look at your style/technique seeing as you aren't that much bigger than I am in terms of bodyweight :) Yeah I'm loving the shoes so far, they feel great.

Re: Asparagus Strength Journey

You're killin it brah. I'm a big fan of the snatch grip deads as well. I wonder what could be going on with your shoulder--do you feel like maybe your technique is breaking down a bit as you get fatigued from the higher reps?
