Re: Deadlift grip issues

Agree with everything VE says. I can't particularly remember why I switched to hook grip. I could pull 240kg off the blocks with mixed grip (and 227.5kg off the floor), so it wasn't particularly an issue, I think I tried it for rows and when I was trying shrugs out (hate them) and just liked the sym...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

Don't worry man, I spent the better part of my 3 years obsessing over how I look. 1lb/week sounds good as long as it's consistent. 5x5 is fine for 7 weeks in. Seeing any difference in your body after 7 weeks is a good sign - it's not a lot of time. Honestly don't worry about proportions between musc...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

Thanks guys! BigRed, in no particular order - Don't give a shit about abs or bodyfat, eat enough every week so your bodyweight is going up gradually. First few years are about building a solid strength base and muscle - Don't get obsessed with hitting every bodypart and don't 'concentrate' on areas ...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

Are you still pushing the big weights around? Did we finally lose you to veganfitness.net? BTW, I've been following your log since I joined this forum. I'm not sure why I've never posted anything to it before, but your commitment, consistency, drive, and results are impressive and inspiring. Keep a...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

Careful of how your knees are tracking, you can your right knee edging inwards on the ascent. Not all of the reps, but something to be aware of. Bloody good form and technique though. You're right man, I don't think it'd happen if my right foot wasn't angled out more than the left. I think it's dow...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

What's that cambered bar like for squats? I've never used one before. When I squat normally I use a low bar position. Cambered bar is high bar so I keep my torso very upright. The bar can kind of swing a bit if you let it. Legendary strongman session at HQ on Friday :D - Fri 13th July 2012 Bodyweig...

Re: Chewy's Strength Log

It should be higher. I've trained it consistently with the other lifts with similar rep ranges but it just moves slower. Long arms as well = good deadlift, shiter bench. I'm just glad it's on the way up! Thu 12th July 2012 Cambered bar squat (no belt) 1x5x100kg 1x3x125kg 1x1x150kg Bench 2x8x70kg pau...

Push press you use leg drive, strict press you don't.
