where were you placing the weight? its best to place it between the shoulder blades if you want to do weighted planks.

well i tried it lower down on my back, as well as at the middle of m back. the lower one is a killer. even putting theweight in the middle, forcing yourself to hold a little longer stresses the middle back sectio nof your spine, the lower trapezius i believe. you can feel the effect when you lie down at night

I did the lower back foam rolling tense your abs and move downward... man its like a core workout. I did the IT band foam roll man very very sore when i foam roll the mid part of my thigh the IT band but after my lower back was a little relieved but not a lot. after the agile 8 the area around the lower back pain the muscle and the back was sore and the muscle was flaming in pain terms.

But the IT band rolling man that just kills badly.

sorry to misattribute to vag!  :P

he is the one who has seemed to most embrace it in the last couple years though.
Muscles are nonsensical they have nothing to do with this bullshit.

- Avishek

sunday: long very easy run 80+ mins @ 5:40+ (14+ km)
monday: strength/cross training
tuesday: extensive tempo (7 km) OR fartlek (mostly easy pace with mix of strides, hills, long tempo) 45 mins (8+ km)
wednesday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km)
thursday: easy run 60+ mins @ 5:20-5:30 (11+ km), strength/cross-training
friday: rest
saturday: short tempo 6-8x500 @ sub-4:00 (7 km)

strength would be:
- hops 2x10
- box jumps or ME SVJ 2x5
- squats 3x6-8 or weighted BSS/lunges 3x10/leg
- RDL/hypers 2x10-12 or SLRDL 2x10-12/leg
- upper push myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- upper pull myo-reps or sets to technical failure
- leg raises, holds, pallof presses

no hill sprints, no 400m sprints, no super high volume calisthenics, no changing my running form, no changing my walking form, no crazy stretching, no stupid shit.

just run without thinking about it, walk, simple calisthenics, simple stretching, and code.

aels.. but replace lifting with life.

For anybody who has knee pain's when squatting, should avoid pushing through that pain and still squatting, can lead to further damage.
Below is a video of someone who kept pushing through the pain. Viewer caution is advised as some parts you may find cringing (at the start).

SQUAT - EMBRACED CORE = BACK INJURY

Without embracing more core last workout I could hardly manage 100kg and didn't know what the reason was and came out with a sore lower back and this time I could comfortably squat 110kg with embraced core and a safer back and felt more powerful the more I embraced my core.

The power of the core  :headbang:

Note to self: This directed to myself. I have this problem of chasing weight numbers, I want to be able to squat 3xbw squats whether box squats or partial squats. But reading what coges told entropy about wanting to be good at squatting or wanting to improve performance for me. I need to stop obsessing over trying to squat high numbers but rather maximize the gains I can from the current squat weight before moving on.

It's probably, or maybe not, like having a lot of lemons, you can either try and squeeze as many lemons as possible in the quickest time possible or try to maximise the number of juices squeezed from it as possible regardless of time. This way you can save a lot of bodily pains.

The high numbers will come but over time, no need to rush it.

nice stuff!

in regards to performance: i think the way we should approach squat numbers is: can you squat (x % BW) whenever.. ? ie, what's your 1RM whenever? I mean can you just walk up to the bar and work up to 2 X BW, or 2.5, or 3?

so, achieving 3 x BW with a high level of specialization, which implies neglecting other aspects of fitness/performance, is probably a bad idea.

i mean my advice for everything is: health #1. secondary advice for jumping is: jump, squat, improve overall fitness, eat good, get enough sleep. included in improving overall fitness is stuff like occasional: running, sprinting, basketball (drills/practice/games/whatever), high rep low level reactive work (MR tucks etc), high volume jump sessions etc.. just stuff to improve overall fitness. regardless, I never say: "just squat". I don't get why anyone would do that if their goal is improving jumping. squat is an important component but not when it's used alone. so anyway, to add to that.. if you have a well rounded routine, then squatting itself is just another tool. building it is important but, not to the detriment of everything else. this gives you more of a long term approach to building your squat. as it increases, whil not neglecting the other components: sport specific movements, general fitness, diet, sleep, that gained horsepower will feed back into the system.

so that basically goes back to what you were saying - don't obsess about the overall squat number, let it be a significant tool in the overall system.

sure, 3xBW squat would be great, but not if it's done basically in isolation, so not to feed back into this continuous loop of development.

that said, I got my half squat to ~2.7 x BW. I did that while jumping nearly every day, eating good, getting fit as fu*k etc. I could feel the gains in squat help fuel the entire system, and the other components in the system helps fuel the gains in squat. that's how it's supposed to be IMHO.

number obsessing is fine, as long as it's part of the overall picture. 3xBW squat doesn't mean sh*t if when you reach it, you're out of shape etc. stuff like that.

it's a continuous system of development, not a magic trick. i think too many people end up focusing on the magic of certain exercises. i don't get it. with years of experience, one should actually move further away from "magic".

and yup. don't rush it! 100%
