Title: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: adarqui on March 22, 2011, 05:37:28 pm
we need a thread like this.. i'm seriously unable to check journals atm, life is crazy stressful and i'm focused on training 100000000%, so it's just become impossible for me to check journals atm and put all of the training someone is doing into proper context (over the course of days/weeks etc).

for that i am sorry, BUT, i really want to know how everyone is doing, really do.. so, if you PR, post it here.. if you took pics, post it here.. if you made a video, post it here.. etc

so post in your journal like normal, then just link some stuff up in here.. it'll make it easier on other forum members too, since not everyone checks every journal..

i really want everyone coming to this forum to achieve their goals, it means a ton to me, that's all this site really is about, and i'm on this "lead by example" shit, which i can't break out of now.. My current course of action is to keep getting closer to head on rim and motivate the hell out of people on here/everywhere, I want my journal/videos to turn into some kind of "fuel".. it's starting to happen but I have much more work to do.

but I really want to know how everyone is doing, PR's/videos though.. let's not get happy with training unless we are making progress.. well let's have fun training, enjoy the process, but real improvements in "measurables" (whatever they may be) is the real goal of the work we put in..

i'll post my videos in here, not my crazy pic-floods though haha.. maybe one or two pics per vid, can't help it.

alright,

KILL IT.

peace

edit:

link your journal post of the PR in this thread

^^ we should have been doing this all along.  :uhhhfacepalm:

ridiculous, i looked in your performance tracker to see the progress over the last few weeks, but you stopped updating it, sucks.

what's the progress been exactly again? it's got to be impressive from what i recall, like 3 major PR's in 2 weeks..

It's weird though that you have to relax the arms/elbows and then suddenly stiffen them for the catch... takes time...

I might very well be wrong here, but with those squats, isn't he breaking at the knees before the hips? I have (well, had) an almost identical looking squat and it put a ton of pressure on the knees. My understanding of the squat is you should sit back, dropping your ass first and keeping your knees in a more or less fixed position.

@ Rix

hah! I haven't even posted a vid, so you're doing better in that regard. But my PR was totally unexpected. I'm back to jumping levels from a year ago and then some.

a dunk off 2 feet is still business man. And I wasn't able to replicate it yesterday, I was only able to throw it down off 1.

@ Darqui

LOL yea I know I know. Wtf is going on?!!!  :wowthatwasnutswtf:



NEW PR today: Parallel Pin Squat 199 x 5 x 4

really explosive. after a week not squatting, that's a 15 pounds increase. At least I'm squatting over my own bw now (190-195 lbs).

I know it sounds like I'm super weak, but like shown in my old dunking video, I've got long legs, so maybe I'm able to express power better or something.

New  :personal-record: today: 120x3 x 5 sets. Probably could've done more, and I will try more the next time just to see where I start to struggle in terms of volume.

Also did Adarq's LTMP intensity workout at ~15 hours and went in the park after that and did a standing vertical jump dunk on the 2.96 m rim (9'8 ). I was jumping high today.

ya i saw in your log, great job man.. and yes, it doesn't really matter how much you lift, only that you are improving those lifts.. the idea that vert & squat match up perfectly to some kind of formula makes no sense, so, you could very well be jumping higher than someone else given the same strength/bodyweight level, this could be due to your leg length or a whole host of other issues.. so ya just keep improving those lifts.

Nah, I squatted 140 some time ago. It wasn't that hard so it's probably higher than 140, more like 145-150. So it's in the 320-330 lbs range. But that's when I weighed 85 kg, now I weigh 81. I'm sure I can squat 140 right now though.

I'm PR-ing every half squat session, but that's prolly cause i never really half squatted for a long time and since then i gained a lot in my full squat. Friday or the next week you should see a 2x half squat vid(or at least projected 2x)  :headbang:

your deep squat should go up too, if you still get that movement work in.









PR 225 x 45 @ 154.. i stopped at 45 because, i'd like to have to try and hit 50 again, instead of hitting 50 and then backing off from this kind of training.. don't get me wrong, my shoulders were toast, legs felt pretty good, but if i had grinded it out i could have got 50.. i'd like to hit 50 even more impressively in the near future !!!

very nice

from a form standpoint, i personally would focus on sitting back LESS, and instead breaking at the knee/hip simultaneously allowing for more forward knee movement.. if you notice, your body wants to do that as you go down.. you're sitting back then you can see your body is trying to jut forward a bit and you're trying to stop it.. what i found with half squatting, is if i allow myself to sit right down instead of back, and allow knees to go forward a little more, it feels much stronger and my knees feel even better squatting that way.. it's kind of your body saying "i want to use my quads more" but you're fighting it..

just my 2 cents.. if you try it, just try it with lighter weights, you should feel the difference immediately.. i learned to give in to what my body WANTS to do instead of fighting it with the dogma s&c preaches, makes a big diff.. for example, say you're gassing on squat, what happens, knees usually shift forward even more to complete reps, right? body is saying "USE THE DAMN QUADS ITLL HELP" and in the face of fatigue we give in to complete a rep we'd normally miss.. if we give in from the start, the movement is much much stronger.

The thing is i used to do what you are saying in the past but my knees would hurt after so that's why i've been doing hip dominant squats... Since i've been doing them like this and focusing on hip drive both in normal "full" squats and in half squats i didn't have any problem with my knees...

The principles of biofeedback right there.

What is right for me might not be right for you. Some exercises feel better for a while, until you correct deficiencies, then other versions take up the torch after a while. An endless circle.

You can watch the video in my journal, no shaking, it didn't feel as heavy as I would've thought. I don't think lifting the bar off the rack is the hard part I could've lift more, but walking it out would've been too much.

beast pic, just make sure you dont go TOO far in weight over your half squat height.. i mean you don't want to be going 200+ lb over it unless you make sure you can handle all of those loads properly. just throwing out some cautionary text hah.

raptor sees that pic and his core shakes :F

i bet he looks at 405 lb a little differently though on lockouts now.

ya i would avoid walking out with that much weight over your half squat.. any little weird shift in hip/knee could be a problem, better to just do a much safer lockout with no walk out.. if you do walk outs, make sure it's not a crazy amount over your max, +50-75 lb or so max.

SQUATTED 210 lb at 135 LB
1.55xBW SQUAT LETS GOOOO

My previous top was 190x4 the monday before.
i was just warming up and everyones is talking about unrackking and stuff on here.  Last warmup set was 185x1. I say let me get an unrack set in, and then i was like how about 210 thats about 1.5xBW. I take it out. Core is tight and it feels light. SPONTANEOUSLY, I go down, and all i feel is glute and ham. I just barely hit parallel, then i go back up. It was a struggle getting to the halfway mark, and then i exploded up. Then i did it again for a second rep.

idk if i should change what i am doing b/c that was after a week of squatting only once instead of 2 or times.

You can see the bar kind of travel forwards on the half squat... probably threw you off balance quite a bit.

Maybe the most underrated part of that is the proprioceptive bonus that they give you. That's one of the reasons I wear thighs all the way down: having a material touch your skin makes you aware of your body position at all times.

Oh yeah I know, it's just my "natural" way of sprinting. I can't just think about it, I just unfold whatever I feel like, instinctively, to generate maximum speed.

And as long as I can remember, that's been very high frequency, low stride length. If I would think to increase the stride length I'd probably get desynchronized and mess the sprint up.

I really have no idea how to fix that. I'm not sure if it's a matter of structure or a matter of mobility/body position in terms of correcting that. Probably strength too since even if I were to lower my hips and straighten my back, when I'd start to lift I'd still get to the same position and lift the same, so...

Well, it's certainly a combination of those factors. A rounded back is actually a mechanically advantageous position for the deadlift. A possible fix would be to work on the setup a lot (feet need to point out for example) and not do heavy singles. They will often look like that. Instead perform deadlifts with a weight that you can lift for a set of 5, maybe do a slight deload even and take care of your form. That will strengthen the back so that it can maintain it's neutral position during the lift.

Now I am doing some sofa lunges ( http://t.co/8Asilal) and again two days ago, after a day of heavy jump squats, I got my entire hand above a low rim, probably 9'8 and just two weeks earlier I only had the top 5 inches of my hand above it. But I think the bounding is making a huge difference, hope to see crazy PRs next week

Edit: I'll add I've been training for the 100m, and been working on top speed, and I have good reason to believe that this strengthens my ankles considerably, they are sore after a day of 95-100% effort sprints.

Finally hit my head on a backboard. Dunno the exact measurements, it might've hung a little low, but the rim was 9'10-11", so it couldn't've been that low. Regardless, that's probably at least a 37" vert. Definite PR.

At the 200x4 the only thing that was difficult, as I see it, was the eccentric load and control, but otherwise, on the concentric, the bar just looked like 60 kg.

I think, again, that's a sign that you need to do more eccentric/reactive work.

No, it is not. We have weights ranging from 1.25 kg to 25 kg. So 25 kg is the biggest plate. That was the idea. I actually know 50 kg plates in my old gym (110 lbs). I guess squatting 3 of these on each side of the bar would be pretty good. 3 plates baby!

video from yesterday. im 5'9 in shoes so 69 inches. the orange plate under the rim is 9'6. on my second jump I had the top of my head was at the glass which is 2-3 inches or so below that. So lets just call it 9'2 to be conservative.

9'2 equals 110 inches. 110-69 = 41 inches. Those jumps were taken after playing pick up and dunking for a while. Plus, I am in the middle of a training phase and my legs havent fully recovered yet. So i'd say at the moment my running vertical is anywhere from 41-43 inches. 45 inches comming soon.

Been trying real hard to get that first dunk but its so hard for everything to go right. I think the second jump is a PR and I may have hit 40. I know the angle is shit but I hit my wrist on the rim. I have only done that when attempting to get a high touch on rim making it ~ 37-38 with ~ 7'6" reach.

Does it seem like a 40inch jump? It has been a long time goal and it would be a big achievement.  First 3 jumps are the biggest by far so not really worth watching after, just more misses and lower jumps.

not sure if it's 40, but it looks pretty high, definitely close if not 40..

2nd jump was nasty, definitely should have thrown that down hard haha..






my comment from youtube:

really nice jumps man, looking high.. a few of those dunks were crazy close. it took me a while to get lobs down, once i had the vert for them.. that second dunk on vid, that's the best lob, concentrate on lobbing like that each time, it didn't have alot of forward travel, just sat there right above the front of the rim.

Dunked on a ~9'6" rim CLEAN and SO HARD, the bolt from the brace (the square thing connecting the rim to backboard) fell off.  I lifted heavy the night before and was a little fatigued too, so I can probably get like one more inch if I was fresh. 

10'0" coming soon.

were any of those pr's? just wondering.. perhaps the 4 double leg bounds?

double leg jump looked fine.. single leg bounds need a little more effort to get that combo of max height + max distance, that's more of a speed bound.

Post by: Raptor on September 21, 2011, 11:25:19 am
Well first off, according to a couple walking by my mom, I'm all muscle and FIT. Go figure.

Secondly, I don't know about the two leg bounds but like in my two leg jumps I feel I'm putting out VERY little power vs. what I'm capable (or I should be capable) of developing. Is like when I jump I transform myself into a guy with a max squat of 80 kg.

And thirdly, it just comes naturally for me to "move" like that in the one-leg bound. Just like in my sprint, I go short and fast for some reason. I would REALLY REALLY love to use a double arm swing in my jumps and bounds, I guess I need to go submaximally for a while to develop a double arm swing jump, although it feels 100% unnatural and "overloady".

although it feels 100% unnatural and "overloady".

 that "overload" feeling is where the magic happens with the single leg bounds, its bw coming down and having to be propelled on 1 leg, big difference than traditional 2 legged jumps.  Single leg bounds will also increase strength for most people once they get better at them, but you have to get better at overloading the leg, cant just stay with the sub max short bounds forever if you want to improve the power output.

Post by: Raptor on September 22, 2011, 01:19:41 am
Yeah but it feels like "too much" of an overload. Not sure if it's just technique (maybe my body position is not that great when I double arm swing) or just lack of strength.

I could have lifted more if i wasnt dead and that was around hour 33-36. Also i hadn't done much in the ways of physical activity in the past few days.

Nice raptor. I hit 165kg (365lbs) easy quite unexpectedly last a couple weeks ago so now I'm making it a goal to get to 500lbs (226kg).

(http://a7.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/305278_1540071301692_1232190619_31583256_1391044644_n.jpg)

About a 37-38 inch vert off of three steps. It was a 3'' improvement since I started DLifting consistently for just two weeks.

I was ABOUT to take the cam with me that day but I was like "nah I won't do it". I don't think I'll film that soon because it's too risky, frankly, to do it often. Maybe somewhere in the future I'll attempt a similar weight but as of right now I want to limit the max deadlifts to ~150 kg because the risk vs reward ratio is not very good with deadlifts and with my back condition.

Thanks anyway ;)

I was at my friend's gym today. Did a muscle up twice on some of the bars. Had no idea I could do that... I guess that shows I really am getting stronger. Crazy hard though.

Also. Squatted 245x1 after a basically a full squat workout. Workout was ATG. Tried the same with the 245 but didn't manage to get quite that far. Still a few inches below parallel

395x4 today at 207lbs bodyweight (at time of squat with clothing on)


Est max is 440lbs. Highest it's ever been.
2.125x bw squat! Highest my ratio's ever been as well.

Can't wait for 2.255 sometime before the summer.

Actually... would be cool to rep twice my bodyweight for 4 reps. I think that'll be my next mini-goal. Should take me no longer than 8 more weeks but there's no telling how badly I may stall in the future.

This past week at the national youth camp, I recorded a spike reach (standing reach + running vertical jump) of 336cm. My old PR was 331. With a standing reach of 255cm, that leaves my vertical jump at 81cm (finally reached the 80 mark) or 32 inches.

On another note, I made the Australian National Youth Squad for the national indoor volleyball program. It'll be great to represent my country internationally in a few months time. I just need to keep working hard to secure my position in the team.

I look to make a further improvement of at least 4cm by March next year. That's over 3 months away, so I should be able to get there if I train properly.

Yeah it looks good and very deep ^^^

It's interesting because my sticking point is where his sticking point is. Not sure if that's the same for everyone. I find it easy to come out of the hole and struggle in that half squat position like LBSS is here.

thanks raptor. no idea about others' sticking points but mine has always been there. easy to get out of the hole -- stretch reflex ftw! -- but past that it's hard.

thanks kf, nice complement coming from you, what with your perfect form. standing jump is still a joke. well below 30. vag is trying to get me to work on RFD and he's probably right. you got recommendations?

Post by: Kingfish on January 05, 2012, 10:56:29 am
^ try doing a standing jump with a deep knee bend and use those quads to push the floor. a sub 30 SVJ with that kind of leg strength is not weak IMO.. it just means you're doing the jump wrong. bend knees lower and forget about using some plyo reflex/bounce to jump.. just push the floor and muscle the jump.

122.5kg Squat  :personal-record:


207.5kg deadlift  :personal-record:

does not compute.

I squat with high bar position. I have long legs and a short torso, which makes it harder to squat. On the other hand i have long arms for my height along with the short torso so that makes deadlifting easier. Before i started focussing on increasing my vertical a few months ago i rarely put any attention into training legs.

Looking great ^^^

In the one leg jump, if you could use more speed you'd get much higher. You got a lot of hip involvement there.

In the SVJ try to get your arms behind you and use a double arm swing. You're just opening the chest now IMO.

Good form?

first rep was definitely fine. 2nd two not so sure... felt bad. but then i stood parallel to the mirror and tried to mimic how my back/form felt while deadlifting, and i looked to the side and my back was still straight.

it appears my DL form is better than i thought  :ibjumping:

So my spike reach went from 336cm to 344cm. First actual PR in 8 months. 8cm straight up. I now have an 89cm RVJ (35") and much work ahead. Next goal is 350cm spike reach or 37-38" RVJ.

Point of thread: Having not PR'd in 8 months is tough but if you keep at it, it will happen.

During today's training session, it went excellent. A kid from my neighbor wanted to train so i taught a few stuff and he did the same training as me but at his pace.

This gave me the opportunity to have someone hold the stop watch for me.

During my flying sprint a total of 72m he was timing me up to the 36m point and i would continue running.

I am going to take the time as it is. Start and stop. I told him to start once i run, he might have delay but by a few milliseconds or not couldn't tell but will take it as assuming he timed it right.

and i got ..... well he said he read ...

Distance: 36 Metres
Time: 00:03:99



I averaged it to 4 Seconds which is also a personal best for me.

:personal-record:   :personal-record:   :personal-record:

Which i calculated the speed to estimate time for 100m which came to 11.11s  :personal-record:

My goal is to get 3.7 and less. I felt really fast.

cross-posted from my journal, here are some of my jumps from saturday. noticed that i'm still kind of leaning back on the approach, which is something that lance suggested i fix on my last video. when i try to lean forward it just feels really awkward. any other feedback?

I think it looks much better than before, especially better speed.

I have the tendency to jumpmorning but I would love to be able to keep a more vertical torso like you're naturally doing. When I jumpmorning I go forward more than up because my torso is oriented down and also, as I raise, my knees have the tendency to collapse foward.

That doesn't happen to you though so...

benched 215x4... most ive ever done in my life.  have increased every workout since doing 185x4 (with a large struggle).
using the 4/7/7 rep scheme that put 70lbs on my squat in 7 weeks. Seems to be working  :headbang:

however i think the gains will stop VERY soon since I'm cutting.... i just hope I can hit 225x4 sometime in october. next week i'll hit 220x4, but not sure if I'll be able to do it on the first attempt. If i'm really psyched up and my form is good that i can for sure.

Use a better ball the next time, with more grip.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: Mutumbo000 on November 28, 2012, 01:08:34 pm
LBSS- The ring is 10 feet regulation size.
Raptor- If I run faster I can jump higher but when I try and run faster I end up losing grip of the ball. That's not just with that ball but with every ball. I probs just got to work on palming the ball more. That said the ball I was using in that vid is just a cheap outdoor Wilson one so yeh maybe using a ball with better grip would help out as well.

Edit- It's not the grip that's the problem though. It's the fact that I barely got enough vertical to dunk so if I gained another couple of inches I wouldn't have this problem at all.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: Raptor on November 28, 2012, 02:46:56 pm
No, you don't need to work on your palming, you just need a ball with a better grip. I've had this discussion over and over and over, and it's 100% in the ball. I have balls that I can "palm" and really hold onto them using just two fingers, they have that good of a grip.

You'd definitely dunk with such a ball, and also move much better with it.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: Mutumbo000 on November 28, 2012, 11:21:48 pm
Yeah but ideally you should be able to dunk with any ball regardless of its grip.

So PR since I never really measured my standing vert.. Kinda makes me think I could get 35 if was really hype...   :personal-record:

What do you mean? Deadlifts?
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: UMThrower on February 12, 2013, 07:51:59 pm
I think most of it is coming from starting to develop neural efficiency in the movement. Some of it too I think, as I mentioned in my log, is that I didn't do as many reps as I could have with 295lbs. Some of it also comes from the programming. With this being the first block of the program (and first block of deadlifts in 2 years) the weights increased every week. I have a deload the rest of this week and then the weights drop back to slightly above the first week of this past block and I start going at it again. So a true increase in the lift will come in about 4 weeks when I go for 325lbs. If I get 7 reps there, then I am definitely getting stronger.

Pulled 315lbs for 7 reps today, finally getting close to being able to call myself strong.

What do you mean? Deadlifts?

Yeah I mean deadlifts. I wish it was clean pulls or better yet snatch pulls. Then I'd definitely call myself strong haha

I don't mean to be a jerk but... if a weakass like me can do 330x4 (that was a long time ago) at 180 lbs... then 315x7 is not really strong :P

I could probably do ~352x7 right now, but I'd pass out.

I never said I was strong. I said I was "getting close to being able to call myself strong" (compared to normal population). I won't call myself strong until I deadlift 455lbs which is twice my bodyweight. And even then I'd say I just broke into the bottom of the "strong" category.

Someone told me a way how i can keep my torso leaning forward when going up is to roll the bar back wrist extension and that should help, as my hips on the way up they go back and up leaving my torso and legs to do the lifting.

Hit a milestone, next mile stone is 90kg

Today was my first time jumping in over a year. Results were:
RVJ/2-steps: 80cm--> PR by 5cm
SVJ: 75cm -->PR By 7-8cm
Didn't do many max effort jumps.. got these numbers the first time I tried. Movement efficiency felt way off on the running jump. Also I'm quite bit heavier now(around86-87kg).
I wonder what I can do with a bit more practice and with less bodyweight (bf~13%)

So long..

It's not like this progress came out of the blue.. For the last 6-7 months I trained my legs in the weigthroom pretty hard and my lowerbody is probably stronger than ever.. But I trained mainly on the machines(leg press/leg curls etc.) because of my stupid shoulder, so I didnt expect that increase in strength to transfer so well into my jumping.

Yea it would be cool to be the first Indian to run under 10s. Especially with my flat feet.

Deadlift: 315lbs x14

Pretty stupid pr, I just couldn't stop.
5 conventional, 5 sumo, 4 more conventional. All paused reps, no wasted time in between reps. Reached 85% lockout on the 15th rep so obviously not counting it.
This puts my max at ~490lbs which is at least 40lbs above where I think I can do.

However my friend said I'm not fully locking out on each rep because I don't bring my shoulder blades back together. But I know I lockout my hips which is all I care about. But ill keep it in mind and lockout the lift properly according to pl standards.

NO. insufficient mobility is the reason you can't squat deep. that is the only possible explanation for a healthy person.

Post by: seifullaah73 on July 03, 2013, 08:46:30 pm
I didn't say it properly.

What i meant to say was I can't deep squat as much weight as i can with quarter squats.
I can squat deep but the weight i use is less than the weight i used in the quarter squats.
Quarter Squat = 80kg, Deep squats = 50kg.

So i was thinking maybe i have weak quads compared to my hamstring that i can lift more in the quarter squat than i can with the deep squat.
I don't think mobility is an issue as I always before workout do hip mobility drills.

More PR's as my first time getting timed.

tempo run
4 x (200 3min rest 100) 32s consistently

did the 4th set with only 1-2min rest after 3rd set so still a bit exhausted
200m 30sec

rested 30s-1min ran 100m in 13.9-14s (This one i am am happy with the most, when before i could run the 100m best was 14s)

I am happy about my tempo run times meaning i can actually run the 200m under 30 seconds.
100m in under 13 seconds maybe hoping hard.

Just got pinned by 80kg parallel squats.

Let me explain, I was trying 80kg to go down and tested to see if i could move it up again once at parallel and i could hold it there and if i had strength i could move it up but my legs were tired after a few seconds of the bar staying still me pushing i got tired and the bar started to push down.
but it was good feeling to be able to hold the weight at parallel.

For the first time my FS and BS have reached parity. FS 3x125kg and HBBS 6x125kg, no belt, no wraps, sleeves etc. Milestone corresponds to >1.9BW for BS and 1.8xBW for FS where BW is my usual ideal basketball season playing bodyweight of 75kg. Will post again in 3 weeks time, hopefully having added another 15kg to my squats! Then a cut back to 75kg by xmas where i'll be ripped and superbly athletic.

Front squat: 135kg @ 89kg ( 297.6lb @ 196.5lb)

Yes that's just a ratio of 1.5 lol, i'm fat right now, have about 10-15kg of bodyweight to drop by xmas. Still, i reckon I can get to around 140kg@89kg in under 2 weeks and then i'll start cutting. My eventual goal is a 2xbw FS @ 75kg/165lb bw which should be totally do-able by end of cut, because i'll just put the weight I take off my gut onto the bar. Lets see how it goes.

I do CG because I don't wanna ruin my shoulders or tear a pec or something stupid like that when i'm not a powerlifter. It's probably my best lift in terms of what i've achieved from where I started so i'm pretty proud of it. Took me bloody ages to get there too but it hasn't done much for me yet, maybe next 10kg will cure DYEL. Probably not though.

Don't ever do bench presses by your own with the weight clippers at the end of the bar - it's a good way to get yourself killed.

DSVJ PR - 30" (touching rim off drop step for the first time)

three-step RVJ PR tie - 34"

four-step RVJ all-time PR - 35.6 or maybe even 36

first time cleanly dunking a mini ball (dodgeball sized, had put it in ugly before but never straight down through the rim).

if you can get at least both mid palms to the rim:

on your non-peak jumping days, doing chins (pullups) on the rim is another fun way of jump training. also becomes a single drop jump after each set.

That's the toughest question you could ask me... because I've been battling this all my life (but never really put the effort to correct it).

Maybe one way would be to strengthen the hamstrings AND the glutes... and to stretch the heck out of your rectus femoris and hip flexors in general all day long, every day. Foam roll, blah blah... but who has the time for that from a practical standpoint?

Post by: gukl on June 27, 2014, 06:47:51 pm
sorry meant to put fast.

i've been using quite a fast descent for quite a while now, hasn't troubled me as of yet and allows me to better utilise the bounce, i'd probably get stuck in the hole with a slow eccentric
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: Raptor on June 27, 2014, 06:59:57 pm
Then you don't have enough "strength" IMO. You should use a slower descent and less weight. Safer, and more time under tension.

Use a faster descent on more specific stuff like half squats, and even then, you can do Lance's quick dip only in that specific range of the amortization phase.

There's a reason Kingfish does paused squats.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: gukl on June 27, 2014, 08:47:50 pm
I could probably pause squat 130kg

For Olympic lifting though, surely using the bounce is beneficial..since that's my main pursuit right now? I do do pause squats now and again.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: Raptor on June 28, 2014, 06:40:45 am
Not necessarily pause squats... it's just that those dive-bomb squats put a ton of pressure and damage on your connective tissues, and these connective tissues don't recover as fast as the muscles (they have less vascularization, so they recover harder).

Overtime, they get too damaged.

That's why as Kingfish does squats daily or so, he can't afford that damage. That's the reason for his paused squats (among others).

In your case, just be more solid on the eccentric phase.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: vag on June 28, 2014, 10:19:21 am
Agree with raptor and lbss, that's a free fall there. I had the same problem in the past. You don't have to go all the way down slowly, Lance suggested me back then to always start the descent slow and controlled, then if i feel better like it accelerate. But in reality, actually thinking of slowly starting slows the whole thing down, it changes the tempo, without it being a slow tempo, just not that fast.
You will see it happen if you try.

In other news, awesome that you got 140kg, nice to see someone get some good squat up in those shoes, lol.

how do you deal with balance issues?

I have tried it, I always seem to go off balance and sometimes fall to the side.

But Good job, 80kg is a big weight on one leg split squats, 140kg on one leg would be beastly, almost impossible, that would be insane if you did do it.

Actually I don't have any balance issues.  :ninja:
We'll see if it is impossible or not. What I have found is, that unilateral work hits the VMO way harder which is probably the reason why my knee is so happy with me as of late.

Today I felt very strong and did split squats with 92.5kg (205lbs) for 9 reps on the 10th rep I was pretty fatigued and became a bit sloppy. I kinda dive bombed into the rep with too much weight on my rear leg. The result was a sharp pain in my right quad (rectus femoris) and what appears to be a slight tear. It's not too bad today though... so I should be back on track within a few days.

On another note, my legs and especially my glutes are getting a little bit too big for my liking. Did some measurements today and my upper thighs are 69cm (27.5") and my glutes are 107cm (42.5") my girlfriend jokingly said to me a few days ago that I'm starting to get a really nice ghettobooty.   :personal-record:::)

I get the most soreness ever from BSSs in the glutes, but usually from dumbbell BSSs.
Title: Re: The PR's/PB's, videos, pictures, and daily achievements thread
Post by: Leonel on September 20, 2014, 10:04:19 am
Yeah.. same here. But at the moment I don't do BSSs. Both my legs are on the ground. I might incorporate some BSS back into my program at some point but I actually like this variation a lot more especially because balance is not so big of an issue. 

By the way my upperbody pressing strength is pretty pathetic at the moment. I did 45kg for 10 reps yesterday, whereas my 10 rep PR is something like 60-65kg. Oh well... it's far from a priority anymore though so I'm not really concerned.

Post by: Leonel on October 14, 2014, 12:44:28 pm
Today I did 100kg for 7 reps on the split squats... Also did some random deadlifts afterwards because a friend of mine was just at it... did 100kg x 5 and 130kg x 5 like it was nothing. Didn't want to go any heavier though given my lowerback issues at the start of this year.
Strength is coming along nicely. Hopefully I will be able to reap the benefits when I start to incorporate more RFD-type work in a few weeks time.

This.

Shoulder dislocations w/ stick for shoulder mobility.
Thoracic extensions on roller for thoracic.
If your hip and ankle mobility is lacking these will also ruin it for you...but I'm sure you know how to fix these.

For stability
-snatch grip overhead press
-snatch grip behind head pull apart with rubber band, really squeezing traps hard, to make harder you can lie on floor and do this behind head too
-spots presses, and klokov 'deep squat barbell front raise to overhead'

Are pretty much what I've done and has helped me.

Yeah I lack in all the areas you mentioned... and then if you couple that with weak shoulders... you know. I think these issues might make my shoulders "look" weak when they're not really that weak, it's just that the bar is so out of position that it becomes really hard to control and "heavy" from a leverage perspective.

I remember when Russian coaches used to monitor their athletes' heart rates in the morning and see the difference vs. their usual HR when rested. If their HR would be over a certain threshold they would be overtrained and they would skip that day and use it to rest them.

I have a bunch of interesting ideas gathered over the books I read... had to cut short their display on my website because of personal problems... maybe I should look into writing them in a post these days.

yup, that's why i'm pissed at myself for not measuring it the last few mornings.. I felt like such crap yesterday, would have been interesting to see if it was ~50 or something, or no change.

I used to love stopwatch doubleclick. When I was really wrecked it would be hard for me to get under 0.09. When I was feeling great I could get 0.06-0.07.

when I was really stressed ~8 months ago, before quitting my job, my HR before sleeping was pretty nuts.. felt like 70's, never measured it. felt like I was going to have a heart attack. Havn't felt like that since a few weeks after leaving that job :F

LBSS, is it just me or is your run-up to the dunk pretty unorthodox? Don't mean to be critical, but it just looks like you don't maximize your elastic energy in those last few steps. Of course if it works for you that's another story, but the arm movement doesn't look quite in sync with your steps + your last step isn't the typical long, spring-coiling-like motion that I see in most jumpers/dunkers.

Post by: LBSS on January 03, 2016, 08:57:58 pm
totally fair question. my answer is: dunno. DL dunk approaches and plants are idiosyncratic even among the elite youtube guys, so i'm not sure there's anything like an optimal way to do it. and my approach has been grooved over hundreds and hundreds of reps. tweaking or retooling it at this point has a high likelihood of throwing me off and low likelihood of success -- what, specifically, would i even change? -- so i'm just going to stick with it for now.

yup, makes sense. do you have a sideview of your jumps by any chance? curious how that angle looks

As of late I've been working on improving my air humping skills. Finally hit 200kg for 5 reps on hip thrusts today. (440lbs) I will probably not go any heavier than this because it becomes a bitch to set up at a certain weight and with heavier weights (even with a pad) I always bruise my pubic bone area which feels pretty damn uncomfortable. I would rather squat 200kg for reps but hey, I take it! :D

I really need to work on my squats (quad strength) though... I can deadlift 200-210kg but today I barely got 130kg on front squats... I think there is such a thing as being to p-chain dominant.  :-[ ;D

I didn't realise this until today but I actually got a PR last friday - BS 2x132.5kg which was nothing special cause i'd been using this weight for a while and usually doing more than one double at a time... but this was done at a bodyweight of 77.9kg....... which makes a ratio of 1.7! The first time i've ever got out of the 1.60s! And this is raw, no belt, so that's also special. I'm on the right track.. just have to keep chasing that ever elusive 2.0.

I got within an inch of rim so I just extrapolated based on that. I know for a fact that I jumped 35" in the gym, but at my house it might've been as low as 34". I'm in medical school and we have a basketball court, so I sneak in some jumps there from time to time. My ceiling is exactly 9' and I can palm it with both hands. My vertical jump device said 37-38", so I think the higher the vertical, the less accurate it is.

Hit some PRs this week:

BS 1x135.5kg (~1.8xbw lol)
Jump Squat 8x180kg
Barbell Calf Raise 10x220kg
RDL 8x180kg (2.41xbw)
Hip Thrust 6x187.5kg (> 2.5xbw lol)

Bodyweight: between 74-75.5kg (163-165lb). Weak sauce squat cause my quads are forever fked from conditioning/cardio but im good for a bit more if i wasn't doing any running/dunking/ballling; not sure how much more, maybe 5-7.5kg?

Did strict barbell overhead presses today and wanted to go for a heavy topset of 10. Last week I just got 60kg(130lbs) so today I wanted to try 62.5kg (135lbs) but the second set at 55kg felt surprisingly heavy and I did 11 reps with it which felt like a max effort, so I was kinda disappointed and decided to cut down the weight and get a bit more volume in at a lower weight. Then I looked at the barbell again and realized that I loaded two 10kg plates each side instead of a 10kg and a 5kg. So I actually did 65kg (140lbs) for 11 clean reps, which is definitely a rep PR! Haha I love when stuff like that happens.

Thanks, I've always been quite a bit stronger in my overhead press compared to my "weak" bench. I have no idea what my 1RM is though. I guess like you said 80+ or around 85-90kg, inching closer to that bodyweight overhead press. (BW at 93-94kg at the moment) I only know my 1RM on the pushpress and there it is 105kg. Just started to do jerks and that still feels kinda odd.

Bodyweight OHP is super impressive if you could hit that! I can push press around 105 too and have jerked 130 but my strict press 1rm is around 65kg haha, just wasn't built to press I guess.

Well... but the shoulder/pressing strength still doesn't help when I can't jerk (or push press) heavy
weights overhead. My leg drive sucks! Somehow I have a hard time to get the right timing/coordination down. Will be working on push presses, jerks in the next training cycle. Right now I'm working on building a good strength base and finding the right feeling with the full lifts (clean/snatch) My goal is to hit a 130kg clean and jerk before the end of this year. That would be nice. Will post a video when I manage to do this. 😊

Post by: LBSS on March 27, 2016, 12:17:04 pm
suggestion to improve leg drive and timing based on my recent n=1 experience: DB push presses. easier on shoulders and wrists, no chance of hitting yourself in the chin or nose, can get rapid feedback on how much your legs are contributing to the press.

And got a >bodyweight hang clean while messing around. Should be able to PR there if i do it consistently but not bad for the first attempt at the lift.

So this happened today: PR'd my full squat clean at 100kg!  :personal-record: This was the first time I was able to full clean those two plates. Then I got a bit overzealous and tried 110kg which I'm able to powerclean on a good day. Was able to catch it but I had so much backward lean that I fell backwards with the bar as I wasn't properly able to drop it. The bar hit my stomach pretty hard but luckily I didn't really injure myself. That shit was scary and kinda dumb. I'm probably gonna stay with the powervariations for now. Not worth the time/effort to focus on learning the full lifts atm. Wish I had a video of that failed lift so I would be able to look at it. haha! :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm:

That's scary... I used to always think about that when I would clean and especially snatch, since I was doing them in a commercial gym with no place to drop it.

So this happened today: PR'd my full squat clean at 100kg!  :personal-record: This was the first time I was able to full clean those two plates.

nice!!

Then I got a bit overzealous and tried 110kg which I'm able to powerclean on a good day. Was able to catch it but I had so much backward lean that I fell backwards with the bar as I wasn't properly able to drop it. The bar hit my stomach pretty hard but luckily I didn't really injure myself. That shit was scary and kinda dumb. I'm probably gonna stay with the powervariations for now. Not worth the time/effort to focus on learning the full lifts atm. Wish I had a video of that failed lift so I would be able to look at it. haha! :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm:

wtf? lucky you're ok.. sounds like you could have gotten injured.

damn!

im trying to think of the worst gym fail i've had.. can't really remember many, lucky for me I always had safety pins set for squatting. Actually, I think the worst was maybe trying 60 lb. on standing DB overhead press and the DB was tilted too much, and then all of the plates slid off, even though they were clipped. Almost caught me in the head, then foot. but I slipped em`.

Yeah I got pretty lucky I think... was just sitting there for several minutes afterwards thinking "oh shit that was close" my scariest gym moment for sure. Luckily I wasn't wearing straps otherwise that would definitely have been a free ride to snap city. 😳

I would have some more stories to share... like the one time I ripped a rather expensive backpack open because I thought that putting two 20kg plates in it to do weighted pullups would be a good idea. Well... It wasn't. Not really a "scary" gym fail... but a fail for sure.

Some PRs from last week:
SVJ- 33.5"
DL RVJ- 38-39"
Squat- 312@155 pounds (added 100+ pounds in 2 months, but I suspect that correctly learning the form gave me 50 pounds of that and that creatine helped immensely)

Right leg PRs recently:

SL SVJ- 18.5"
Running SL RVJ- 26"

Right ankle was surgically repaired 7 months ago. It's still absolute trash compared to my healthy leg.

Left leg PRs recently (prior to shin splints):
SL SVJ- 23"
Running SL RVJ- 37.5"

I'm jumping at my school's gym. Rim is 10 feet for sure.

Also, my friend has been following my routine (working out with me) and has only gained an inch on his RVJ in 3 months. Seems odd that we are doing exactly the same thing, but he's not improving much.

Because you're recovering from surgery and getting back to your natural level. I don't think you're necessarily "gaining" per se, just recovering and improving as you go. That's why.

power clean and jerk - 115kg.

 so that's a 5KG PR clean and jerk techincally.. NOT excpected considering knee problems, soreness, ridiculously weak legs due to knees....but i'll take it 9 weeks out from comp!!

thanks alot man!

ya things have been clicking lately.. feel like my body is accelerating adaptations lately. Body seems ready to run at all times (other than the soreness i created lately from stupid stuff). Fat is also starting to finally come off it seems, without any drastic change in diet - i'm eating the same (clean).

i've been able to push myself harder lately too.. i mean not every run but, my 'quit voice' is not as loud. yesterday after I came off that sharp curve, pace slowed, and about a quarter mile after I had lots of 'quit thoughts' but i remember telling myself "i will not fail this effort, i already put in enough work in the first third, pick it up" etc.. was good. ;f

pc!!

That reminds me of the 1200m timed run I had to do, it was difficult, my 'i quit voice' is always there, when I ran 400m, started a little fast and started slowing down due to being tired and approaching the 400m finish line my mind is telling me stop here, but for some reason I am just running past it and run 2 more laps even though I am dead I am somehow able to drag myself around the track ignoring the 'i quit voice'

What's the error on your GPS accuracy-wise? I'd imagine most are almost to the metre but I've heard from some distance guys that there can be errors up to 20m on a 400m track depending on brand and model.

gps-timed 400m :personal-record: -> 1:04 (-3s)

What's the error on your GPS accuracy-wise?

not sure.. I think it depends on the weather and such. One thing I do is look at the graphs and if they don't have any weird spikes/noticeable issues then it's usually spot on.

for example, here's the 0.25 mi run from last night:

(http://i.imgur.com/MiH12Mg.png)

rarely you may seem some weirdness in such a graph.. which would be related to the gps data. I like that one tho, shows me stopped before the run, then boom.. and maintaining speed decently throughout (until the last ~100m).

I've also been using the lap key so, that acts like a stop watch. It said 1:05 for that lap for 0.25 mi .. but it could also be like 0.250 or 0.256 etc (because i'm running on a "stretch" not a track), I only get the precision to two significant digits.

I didn't know about it until recently.. hah.

I'd imagine most are almost to the metre but I've heard from some distance guys that there can be errors up to 20m on a 400m track depending on brand and model.

as for my model, it seems pretty accurate. The thing that has caused errors in the past has been very cloudy weather and stuff like that. Also one freak error where it didn't record a potential 1KM pr.

Someone once told me to expect it to be off when i'm at a track.. i've used it a few times and it's been spot on. So maybe there's more chance of error on a short "loop"? not sure tbh.

I mostly run on sidewalks (and very rarely street roads) so, I usually get large stretches of land.. maybe it works better under those conditions.



edit: oh and the biggest chance for error is right in the beginning.. so if you started a watch right at the start of the run, you may see some weird stuff in the beginning. That's what used to kill me when measuring shorter runs from the "beginning".. once the watch gets going though, seems good.. so then you just use the lap key to find the times of the intervals and bewm.


peace!!

major :personal-record:

non-max 5:22 for 1-mile .. which is still -4s from my previous PR of 5:26

also never went over 6 min/mi for the entire mile .. :personal-record:

I really had a ton more in me in that run .. which is somewhat evident from the first graph, which shows a big sprint at the end - which i finished at a faster pace than any other point in my entire run.  :wowthatwasnutswtf: :ibrunning:

Felt like I hit a new level in that run.. hopefully I can start to repeat that more often.

wow my last PR post was December 2016.. such a fail.  :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm: :uhhhfacepalm:

legit walking PR's from today .. worth noting!

08/11/2017

walk:
- 9.17 mi in 2h:16m:xxs
- only walked the first 4 miles hard, which ended up being a PR .. really pushed it. Last 5 miles I just relaxed.
- 3 consecutive sub 13 miles  :personal-record:
- 4.58 mi in 1 hour  :personal-record:
- actually a few more PR's:
- walking 5k interval: 39:54  :personal-record: , sub 40
- walking 3 mi: 38:30  :personal-record:
- had I kept pushing it, I was on my way to finally hitting 9 mi in 2 hours... that'd be a major walking PR.
- lots of leg power it seems, good sign.

major walking PR! 9.1 miles in 2 hours - 4.55 mph.

http://www.adarq.org/progress-journals-experimental-routines/adarq's-journal/msg134091/#msg134091



evening walking PR attempt!
- goal: 9 miles in 2 hours - i've never done this before .. tried, but failed a few times
- results: 9.1 miles in 2 hours  :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record:
- https://www.endomondo.com/users/26420622/workouts/987164257
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1144094673
- tons of PR's, most notably:
-- most 12:XX's in a row (4)  :personal-record:
-- 9.1 miles in 2 hours  :personal-record:
-- 4.68 miles in one hour as part of one of the segments of the total walk  :personal-record:

 :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning: :ibrunning:

- this was really difficult TBH.. I didn't look to see if I had any chance until I got to mile 8 .. I mean, I knew my splits were good and that i'd have ~14-16 minutes probably for mile 9, so once I hit mile 8, I was basically exactly at 1:45:00, so 15 minutes left.. so I knew I had it but wanted to get in some extra, hence the 1.1 instead of 1.

- I was completely drenched, head to toe .. maintaining that kind of pace while walking is pretty rough.
- legs/body felt amazing during the walk
- legs/body feel amazing after, but starting to tighten up a bit
- left shin feeling it a little right now
- felt my left PF/foot issue for pretty much the entire walk .. it's "light" but still, not good feeling that.

major PR for me tbh ... i've never been able to do that .. so it either means I just tried harder, or i'm actually seeing some cardiovascular improvements + hip/leg strength improvements. I'll go more with the latter IMHO.

breathing wise it's actually not easy .. you can definitely feel yourself sucking in some air at times.. and by mile 8, I was having a hard time staying completely straight lmao.. i was wobbling a bit from fatigue I think, and also closing my eyes on occasion, just was getting tired.

the best part of cardio tho, is rehydrating afterwards. it's literally the best feeling on earth. I had:
- protein + milk
- water w/ lemon
- coconut water
- all put in the freezer for like 15 minutes so it was ice cold
- straight up bliss

- also, like usual, over that distance I lost 6 lb. water.

ya dude, that stuff is crazy .. they use that wormy looking speed walking form, i've never even tried it and don't intend to.. i've heard those dudes have lots of hip problems - but that could be b.s.

i have no idea how i'll even hit 5 mph which is like barely under sub 12 I think .. sub 10 min/mi sounds impossible. lmao.

What I am *really curious* about, would be how fast those people can walk using a "normal form". Or maybe I don't know enough about how speed walking works, but i'd suspect there's a pace that you can hit before rotating your hips all "weird". Here's a decent video I just found:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W1sxFgTUbWo

I mean would they hit ~8 min/mi without the hip rotation? if so that's still absolutely flying. The straight leg doesn't look weird to me, there's just some unnatural looking hip movements going on which seems deliberate - not a result of one foot in front of the other, or a locked leg. I'd love to see how fast one of these elite speed walkers could go by using a "normal walking gait". I imagine it would still be very fast.



Also: Kipchoge basically ran 26.2 miles in the time I walked 9.1 miles last night... :D  :ibrunning:

peace!

It was interesting to see this in the diamond league in birmingham, your last sentence reminded me of this.

Glad to see bosworth happy, I felt sorry for his walking race when he was disqualified he was really upset.

major PR, actually a "milestone PR" .. sub 12 minute mile for a speed walking mile split, > 5 mph.

http://www.adarq.org/progress-journals-experimental-routines/adarq's-journal/msg137357/#msg137357

workout: recovery walk turned into progression walk & 1-mi PR attempt: MASSIVE WALKING PR: 1 mile in 11:39 (5.14 mph) - previous PR = 12:09 (4.94mph), -30s  :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record:
- https://www.strava.com/activities/1293427915
- https://www.endomondo.com/users/26420622/workouts/1037888842

WTF. mind blown.


everything says 11:40, but my watch at the mile split said 11:39 and strava says 11:39 .. it was 11:39, annoying.

I've tried to go sub-12 many times, sometimes during dedicated walking phases, sometimes out of nowhere.. Never been able to crack that barrier (and hence the 5 mph barrier) .. and then just smashed it with a -30s PR, +0.2 mph. crazy.

Same shoes as last time, basically the same area.

- evening speed - trying to be more aggressive: 0.77 mi (1230m) @ 3:48.4 (4:53 min/mi, 200 SPM, 1km @ 3:01 ties PR - but my most consistent 1km ever), 400m @ 1:06.0 (4:21 min/mi), 320m @ 53.6 (4:29 min/mi), legs dead 0.82 mi (1320m) @ 4:33.6 (5:33 min/mi)
great session!

- alone 1km PR: 3:01 :personal-record: :personal-record: :personal-record:
- consistency/quality of effort 1km PR: 3:01 - ties overall PR but better overall effort BY FAR :personal-record:
- also got second overall on the leaderboard for the "Tequesta 400m Lap Starting At The 200m Stagger" :D

not the biggest PR's, but my alone 1km PR is -3s, decent. Really thought I was sub3 on that effort, lmao.

I don't think I ended up mentioning this because of all the drama surrounding the Grand Final at the end of the year but I got named in the 2017 NRL SA team of the year on the wing and also got a medal.

worth mentioning I think, considering how much time I knocked off.

alone 2 mile PR: 11:21 (-17s) (5:31+5:50) :personal-record:
- previous = 11:38

all time PR: 11:20 (2016 merrill lynch bull run 5k)
- 2s from beating it, fml! :ninja: :derp: :trollface:

wimped out in that second mile a lttle, but not enough to quit/not PR etc.. so, happy about that I guess.

1RM Box Squat  :personal-record:

I got a little carried away with the box squat since I haven't done it for a long time and it wasn't paused or anything but fuck it I'm still counting it as a PR. Recorded my set of 90x11 bench as well. With the bench I really struggled with the last 2 reps because I was determined that I'd push out 11. Here's the video.

sick man!!

bench was flying up early in the 90 kg x 11. re: struggling at the end, those kinds of "high rep" sets are sooo good for hypertrophy.

only criticism of the box squat is: just seemed to dive bomb onto the box a bit .. just be careful with that IMHO, especially since you haven't been doing box squats, your spine could be like "wtf" when you land on the bench that hard/fast. AELS!.. but ya, sometimes you just need to go get it, but when sitting on a box with weight on your shoulders, IMHO always control it as much as possible.

great lift tho and sick PR's and sick vid!

+1 with adarq post. With box squat you want to not lose tension so when you sit back you just to touch and then come straight back up. Relaxing causes your knees to come in and back relaxes.

Great job with the bench press.

not doing "stupid stuff" is very difficult when the adrenaline is flowing and we are locked in, so remembering there is a squad/support group out there can help :)

thanks alot man!

ya sometimes i just get annoyed of something and try to do it. happy I did it though. i'd like to get good at half/full distance. I mean it's much slower pace (for mortals), just for so much longer. I think I can get good at that.

fast life & slow/long life. fun stuff.

:D

peace!!

edit: also, it puts sub3 into a better perspective for me.. sub3 seems almost like sub5, for most people. it's pretty serious. Also, it makes that woman I train with, her PB of 2:57 in NY for her 3rd marathon I think, even more mindblowing.

sub3 doesn't seem easy.. that's for sure. I've always respected it, but maybe not enough as I should have.

haha just saw this, thanks man!!

i was thinking about this and how intertwined it was with my athletic pursuits on so many levels. for one, i wouldn't have ever gotten into medschool if hadn't been able to talk about how much i learnt/skills i developed through youth sports....teamwork etc...is a massive part of it. then i would also say i learnt nearly everything i know about working hard/grit/determination etc through basketball and strength training...you get out what you put in kind of mindset. right from when i was like 12 when basketball started getting serious for me, my coach would make us work so hard...i definitely learnt a lot from that

and then more recently, no way would i have been able to manage all the stresses etc physically or mentally without having exercise and this healthy lifestyle that comes along with it, it's unbelievably beneficial.

in summary - don't give up this training life and pursuing goals. it sucks when you realise ah im never gonna make it as a pro basketball player, or damn i'm not gonna qualify for any major weightlifting tournaments anytime soon. But as long as you can keep competing with yourself, its still worth it and you still learn from it and its still going to benefit whatever else you have going on in your life. whether its managing stress, being a better labourer or just being able to play with your kids or something. not to mention the overall benefits to your general physical/mental health. excercise is awesome, neverstop people.

very well said!

and as far as the "neverstop people" goes: ya, every time i've stopped, i've come to really regret it.. better to just figure out how to maintain/transition/coast along for a while than to cut it out. like you said, there's more to it than just reaching some goal in our heads: staying focused on athletic self improvement usually carries with it a ton of health/mental/social benefits etc.

I had a few great coaches at basketball camps growing up. Had lots of crappy coaches elsewhere, but it's amazing what even just a few days with a real leader/motivator/role model can do, learned a ton from a few people in such a short period of time.. I mean one basketball coach at a camp told us to "sit at the front of the classroom so you can learn more/do better in school", no one ever told me that before (I was ~13 or 14 years old?).. and I remembered it/used it from them onwards. Just one example.

peace!!

haven't bumped this thread in a while.. :ninja: :ibrunning:

first ever sub3 1km without watch feedback. I also haven't hit a sub5 mile without a watch either, so that'll be PR worthy at some point.

but sub3 k's mean more to me than sub5 miles. To put it in proper perspective, as of tonight - this year i've done:

4 x mile @ sub5
2 x 1km @ sub3

sub3 1km's are harder for me than sub5 miles, because sub3 1k is <= 4:49 min/mi pace.

so tonight, without watch feedback, I maintained 12.55 mph.. that has me pretty excited.

when I can do that at 13mph... skrrrt.

Speed Deadlifts 3 x 5,3,3 @150kg @~65kg BW

It was comfortably easy but on first set I did first rep bent knees more quad involvement but due to lack of concentration and just focusing lifting and putting down and lifting straight away  so last 4 reps were straight leg deadlifts but second set more quad involvement, I had to lift it by pulling back a little before coming up.

But a PB nevertheless, last time i did it was a 1 rep with belt and strap, this time speed reps with no belt.
last set last rep was a grinder at the top where it's difficult to drive hip forward so you end up bending the knees to help get the bar up lol

Around 2 - 3 seconds between reps

i think he's asking how quickly you lifted the weight, not how long you rested for. regardless, more than 2x bw for reps is good work. although from your description it sounds like form was a bit all over the place and, as adarq said, be careful with that.

Oh. It came up at an average speed, not easy and not difficult. probably around 6/10 in difficulty on first rep.
My form wasn't that bad, it's just that I wanted my quads to do the lifting instead of my hamstring with the straight leg deadlift.

The acceleration bounds really help open up the hips and get the knee higher.

EDIT: Well that was short lived. This is Cue 4, Cue 5, the cue I decided to go with is not as good but it will do, I hope.

But this is the only good thing about it, the rest is rubbish. ranting because of failed experiment. but I know cue 5 is faster but if I can tweak cue 4 by pushing off explosively and quickly off each step rather than aiming for distance and running slow, then that would be good and could get a good time. but don't have time, I need to start my weighted vest workout, which was supposed to start on January.

I will do cue 5 and add that to it if I can. but because I am running fast with cue 5, it's not easy to think explode off each step.

RANT OFF
