The swimming is light and was advised to try getting back to it to help shoulder. Altern...

Is salt driving water weight or is it glycogen?

(crossposted from NS forums) Feel free to discuss, rip, etc. I hear a lot of people talk about salt-associated water weight from binges. However, what I suspect is actually happening is water associated with glycogen. It's well known that about 4 times the water weight of glycogen is associated with...

I'm going to call it a "stiff armed dip" then. Although I see why it belongs in a book on shrugs, it's interesting to me that it is basically the opposite of a normal shrug (ppush versus pull). The info on muslces affected is helpful. I figured there would be some weird rotator cuff or such involved...

Leigh Peele has a video (and post) on this subject.

Lyle Mcdonald also has a thread with people giving bf% based on pics.

stiff armed dip (what does it exercise and what do you call)

I want to mix in a rehab exercise, where I sort of in a dip (can be sitting on ground) and then just push down about an inch or two. What muscle is that exercising and what is it called? It would be sort of like this exercise, pictured here, but with hands at sides (and I'll use body weight). http:/...

7th and 8th and 9th, can't remember. Probably got some cardio in. no lifts. 10th: got 30 minutes biking in (not transport) and then drove to gym and did about 60% of my rehab workout. Felt OK. Pretty tiring for rotator cuff and a different sort of feeling to normal arms day. Anyhow...learning the pa...

I tried out two different trainers for advice on shoulder scap stabilization. They had some differences and some overlaps. One of them wrote me this program: Scapular Stabilization exercises 5-10 min on Row Machine for warm up Internal Rotation – 3 sets, 10-12 repetitions External Rotation – 3 sets,...

Tim, that was an RDL. Update: someone was in the power rack all night, so I didn't get much done on GMs. Tried some with body weight (and bar) outside the rack. Both stiff legged and bentlegged. They seem a lot like RDLs but trickier somehow. And even more flexibility limited (maybe I arch my back m...

Tim, when you talk about braking the hip angle in 5, is that also breaking the knee angle? My intention would be to do them with a minimum of quad involvement (although, I could probably have a bit more, since the weight will be lower). I'm actually getting more intrigued to try them, despite their ...

Thinking of trying good mornings first time (questions)

I am thinking of switching out my RDLS for stiff legged Good Mornings. Although I really prefer the "whole body" aspect of RDLs and the convenience (no rack), my shoulder/scapula is pretty messed up. Figured GM would give me the same legs effect as RDL, without hanging a weight off my scapula. Yes/n...

Not surprised. There are a variety of nutrient mixes that will provide adequate nutrition while losing weight and while keeping adherant. We are omnivores. This stuff does not need to be so complicated. Alan would agre...
