Re: Wrist/Hand Position during Bench Press

Your wrists should be quite straight while benching. Bent wrists are a common problem and usually a hard habit to get rid of. You can lift and support bigger weight with straight wrists. But I still wouldn't say they should be exactly perpendicular. It sounds a bit hard to balance. A slight tilt is ...

Okay, cool.

Now that was utterly stupid.

Feel free to post anything here in relation of my journal. I'll post something here also, as long as I know what it might be. We'll see.

Dub's Journey to Personal Training

Alright, I've finally gathered the time and interest to write my own journal. First I thought I would not write a typical numbers log, where I only put up the results of my puny weightlift hobby. No, I have something more. I thought I would cover everything I do revolving around sports and coaching....

Re: Does it matter what % of calories is ingested per meal?

You need to be a little careful of too prescriptive a program like this if your workout timings don't line up with the authors. Yep, that's one of the reasons I can't start this kind of diet. My training schedule is very altering. Some days I work out at 10AM, some days at 8PM. The average is somew...

Re: Stu Ward's Progress Discussion

Did my annual Battle Fitness Test yesterday, which is predominantly a 13Km weightload march This got me interested. Is it just a thing you do personally, or is it some kind of event? How much weight was there? Did you take timing of the event? The big problem is blisters on my feet. I get blisters ...

Re: Why don't we attract more quality members?

If you look at things from the view of a newcomer, I came here to learn, not to spam. But because I'm just beginning and am on the bottom of the scale, it's a bit harder to contribute. I've tried to take part on the conversation more, and I'm slowly getting there. Right now I'm more observing and as...

Re: A diet I can actually maintain...

Try to avoid meat and add some more vegetables in your diets . For the sake of protein intake, I wouldn't recommend less meat. No protein means no muscles(roughly said). Maybe less of bad fats and carbs? But most importantly and obviously, cut down the alcohol. Maybe to one or two per weekend. That...

"Also, he said he never pulls from the floor - only from the rack"
Okay, from that point on I wouldn't take advice from him considering deadlifts from the floor. As it is quite the different thing. Depending of course about the starting height.

Re: How many exercises per muscle group?

..... The idea that you're lifting four days in a row and then rest for three days doesn't sound so nice to my ears. Yeah, your muscle groups vary, but when you do chest, you also work with your biceps and shoulders, and when you work your shoulders, you also train your biceps, triceps, and oftenly...

Re: Deadlift

Well one thing I'm sure of is that the sentence "lifting xkg is really heavy for someone your size." Is utterly stupid. Especially when you're not small at all. I weight almost 20kg less than you, and I'm somewhere along 5 foot eleven tall, and I can easily DL over a 100kg. Why would he even say som...

Re: Choosing a Heart Rate Monitor

I use a heart rate monitor all most every time I'm exercising. It's also a watch, so I practically carry it along anyway. It shows me the duration of the exercise, heart rate and some calorie burn calculations. I'm way too sceptic about those calorie burn numbers, but since I'm not dieting or anythi...

About Fatigue

I've been studying human energy consumption and fatigue during an weightlifting exercise a couple of days now. With the simplest theories about energy production(Not sure if the term is correct) I have no problem. I'm talking about the muscle creating ATP from KP, carbs, glycogen and glucose when in...

Re: Pull Up Training

Also I should note that I was in the Finnish army for half a year during the winter. There we had to in example carry heavy weights and backpacks with us on long marches and did some upper body training on the side also. Not that it did too much for the chin-ups, but I'm sure it improved my back, ab...
