Re: Bringing Back Big Red from the Dead.

April 26th, 2012: Deload Deadlift day: Conventional Deadlift: 185 lbs x 3,3,3,3,3 I noticed how slow even this light weight was coming up off of the floor, my lockout was good and powerful though. Sumo: 185 lbs: 3,3,3 Never really do these, i find it hard to sit back enough to get a good heel drive....

Re: Training Fasted

somewhat on topic:
Does anyone else find that they sweat more if they train fasted? on occasion, if i had a big dinner or something, i train fasted, since i workout within an hour or so of waking up; but i always pour sweat, everything is normal if i get some food in me though.

Re: Red144 Journal dicussion

As you can see, I moved all of the posts except the actual log entry. When I said that it doesn't look like a deload, I was reacting with the perspective of knowing how much you lift on ordinary lifting days. Maybe it really is a reduction in load or volume from what you usually do. You need to dec...

Re: Bringing Back Big Red from the Dead.

I have never had any coaching, but i think my problem may be that i catch the bar too far in front of me, maybe that is why i feel it in the quads more? If the bar is too far apart from your body, it's more stress on your core and back muscles. One thing I came wonder is; How low do you catch the b...

Re: Bringing Back Big Red from the Dead.

... Deload Squat day: Hang Cleans: Hang cleans are mostly quad dominant if i am not mistaken, unless i am doing them wrong, ha. I think you are... The main driving force in hang cleans should come from your hips. It doesn't mean you won't feel it in your quads, but the snap should come from your gl...

Re: Bringing Back Big Red from the Dead.

Well, i had been lifting erratically with no real aim while i was loosing weight, and have managed to maintain some muscle mass and strength, besides, i have spent a good deal in the past practicing good form with my lifts (except the olympic lifts). I have always had a problem with planned deloads ...

Re: Bringing Back Big Red from the Dead.

Sure, I wish you luck! Welcome to ExRx, and welcome back to training. You're free to do it any way you like, but most of us keep just the journal information in this thread, then start a thread in the "Journal Discussion" section. Then most people won't interrupt your training log with comments. Th...

Re: Bringing Back Big Red from the Dead.

Here is what i accomplished this morning: Deload Squat day: Hang Cleans: I wasn't entirely sure what to do on my deload day, so i figured a little bit of power work with some Olympic lifts would be fun. Plus, Hang cleans are mostly quad dominant if i am not mistaken, unless i am doing them wrong, ha...

I am beginning this log as a means to track my progress (i hope i progress) in my upcoming attempt at rebuilding the body, strength and liveliness i once had. But first, some current info about my person: I am 19 years young and six foot, one inch tall....
