Re: the biggest loser appreciation thread!

My missus makes us watch it, so I cant say I love the show, but it does make me giggle sometimes. Whats sad about the show is the way the contestants react when in the second week they only loose 4lbs when in the first week they all loose over a stone. The look on their faces, you can tell that they...

Re: Knee Crepitus and Squatting

Thanks for that. Yes, thats a good que and it works for me. I'm starting to get these, begining to stay on my leg without falling sideways now. It stretches the hammie on the leg i'm standing on like hell. I'm guessing I need to keep the weight on my heel, right? I'm finding that difficult because ...

Re: Modifications in back section for chin-up and pull-up pa

Is ExRx going to try and pretend that they've never called an overhand grip a chin-up? Are they just going to go mainstream and back on everything they stood for? Are they afraid of the controversy? Is this your question? If it is, then your question is redundant. I'm sure you've been told before t...

Re: Knee Crepitus and Squatting

A good cue for these is to initiate with the rear leg i.e let the torso follow the rear leg, don't lean forward THEN push the leg out to the rear as this sets you up to bend from the lower back and not the hip. Also, with the rear leg, don't just swing it back, actually reach back hard with it - th...

Re: Neanderthal no more question

Week 2 over! Visible posture improvement in shoulder area. In fact it feels uncomfortable/vulnerable to let the shoulders round forward like they used to. Lower back pain is after one year finally improving, I do need to foam roll the right glute daily, or the next day I will regret it. I also have...

Re: Knee Crepitus and Squatting

Okay. reporting back. Been a real busy bee, gotta make this swift. Rolling, stretching and activate certainly makes a real difference, getting my back against the wall for the clams sorted that too, got my glute medius switched on fo sho! Did about 6 sets of reverse lunges 6 to 8 reps. Quickly came ...

Re: Knee Crepitus and Squatting

Side Lying Clams - these are just "activation", no need to add resistance. What's key is keeping the sides/obliques pointing directly upwards towards the ceiling and not allowing your torso to rotate at all - be very strict with this. I get people to put their hand on the side of their hip/glutes t...

Re: Knee Crepitus and Squatting

Thought i'd report back on todays workout. I alternated with some IT (TFL) stretches, pull-ups and overhead pressing and got warmed up nicely. Then I got with some foam rolling, TFL didn't feel to bad, but boy did the quads hurt, especially outer thigh. I also foam rolled my left testicle for good m...

Re: probiotics

Do a Google search on home made probiotics, and you will see It's very easy (a little messy) to make. I found a 1.5 gal. glass jar with glass lid for under 15 bucks at Walmart? You can tell It's working by eating a little too much and getting a minor stomach ache. At least that tells you the good b...
