I recently read in an article on strength training that lifting heavy weights has a detrimental impact on arterial compliance, thus increasing the risk of heart disease. Is this true?
To make things clear, I use Key Indicators as a way of assessing my training and knowing where Iâ€™m at without having to test my lifts. This is a great thing because everyone wants to know if their training is working but they donâ€™t want to have to have a test day every two weeks...
It takes teh body a solid few hours to warm up after you sleep, as others have mentioned. CNS seems to be a little underpowered too (bring me the mana of god: caffeine). You'll want a more thorough warmup to make sure that joints and connective tissues are warmed up. There is also data that the body adapts to when you routinely train it. This has relevance for people who compete. If you always train afternoons and your competitions are in the mornings, you may get into trouble with optimal perforamance.
I did deads this morning, and the weight felt pretty good, but my grip started failing me on the later reps of each set... came to the point that i about dropped the weight from just below my knees on the final decent cause i just couldn't hold it any longer... should i get some straps or should i stick with the weight until my grip can catch up...?
depends, if your angry and full of rage more, but if your angry and sad and its harder to concentrate less.
If there was a raw division that was professional and actually paid it's athletes (Hello KK) a base income, plus prizes based on performance and records broken etc. Do you think alot of todays lifters who are always questioned about the lifts or plys, would they compete ? What about the numbers ? It would put alot of pressure on alot of guys in the game. Is this possibly the only way to seperate the great lifters from the technitions ? Or do you think it would be bad for powerlifting ?
The hot tub before the workout can help you warm up and get the appropriate bloodflow moving, while also enhancing the viscosity of the synovial fluid in your joints. Immediately after a workout, you want as little swelling as possible. One of the most effective restorative methods is the cryocup. With it, you literally rub ice on the muscles that you worked that day. This reduces the immediate swelling and further cellular destruction that tends to slow the recovery process after a workout. A hot tub after a workout will further increase that swelling and inflammation...not a good idea.
Garry Frank. He is the strongest man on earth. I like him because he pushed the bar concerning totals and inspired powerlifting to make a comeback. Notice that powerlifting was in the dark ages most of the nineties until Garry came on the scene. Then we all got motivated. I like Ed Coan , Steve Goggins and Jesse Kellum. They were champions in the eighties and remain so still today. I like Brian Siders because he just lifts big. I like Ano Turtanian because showed us how strong Europeans are by actually coming over to the USA and beating us at his own expense. He didnâ€™t just state he was better on the internet. I also like Paul Childress, Kaz, Don Reinhoudt, Andy Bolton and some of the European dudes whose names I cannot pronounce. I have great respect for Beau Moore.
Raw - I can get a ROM of 8 inches or less, 7 on a good bench. Shirted - Harder to arch, even in an F6, but I can still keep it under 10 inches, usually. This is the measured from the starting position. After the lift I've lost a bit of the arch and flattened out so it's usually increased.
Louie Simmons says its recommended since it shortens the range of motion. Anybody have input on this? Should you do this lifting raw too?
Erin Dickey took the 97 lb class, Siouz-x lifted through a back injury to take the 114's, and Caitlyn Miller won the 123's.
Who else is sick of hearing about this New England record breaker RAAAAW meet? Yeah, it's cool, but people are making it out to be the greatest thing since sliced bread. Equipment is not going anywhere.
