    Awesome tool! Used it a lot when I was powerlifting to get knots out. I should get back to that.

    Only women who are true bitches are offended by the term "bitch." I am not offended.

    I'll be honest and it's not secret. I love sex. Anyway, anyhow.

    You need to stretch. Not only will it give you a bigger range of motion, but it will help prevent injury.

    On leg day, I do 1/2 hour of cardio before I workout, then stretch, then do sets and stretch in between them.

    The problem I see here is that you are not doing SLDL rather a traditional deadlift.

    SLDL you bend at the hips and only at the hips

    Position yourself, bar resting against your thighs, unlock the knees slightly. Start bending at the hips, again only at the hips, let the bar pull you down, there should be no up and down movement with your quads/thighs.

    Only go down as far as your flexibility allows you, in time your hammies will begin to stretch and you will be able to go further down.

    You should also stretch the hammies on days you do not work out, put one leg in front of the other and bend over hold for 7-10 seconds. Start by holding the back of your thighs and work your way down to your calves until you can touch your toes. This like everything else will take time.

    This will not only stretch your hammies it will also stretch the back of your knees.

    I also bike to and from the gym when Sledge is at work and I've been averaging about 23 minutes each way so that's roughly 45 min of cardio. I wore my HR monitor and I am in the 125-135 zone.

    I also started logging my food on fitday just to see what kind of calories and carbs I've been eating. I average 2000-2500 cals a day and 65-100 carbs a day. I seem to be putting on about 2 pounds a week. I am trying to build but I thnk that may be a little too much. I dunno. I think I'll just stick to the plan until I start my mini cut on Feb 2nd.

    The weights I posted on the Hammer stuff is combined...both sides. The Hammer Strength stuff they have at this gym is stacks instead of plate loaded. And the kg thing keeps me guessing. Remember when you would load the machine and tell me to lift without me knowing the weight and I could always lift more than I thought I could? It's like that.

    I do remember that. First time you almost thought I was lying....then almost had an orgasm over realizing you really did. That was fun to watch.


    4 plates is still 4 plates.....wow.

    I could actually do more weight. The problem, like with DBs, is getting the first one up. The handles are levered so that they are way back and it's hard on my shoulder to push the first one. Once I have it up I can pump out the reps easily. I don't bring my elbows back behind me, just even with my body. Does that make sense?

    Stretching will help your hamstring development as well as prevent injury. Having said that, once you lock yourself in mechanically to do the movement, go down until the tension in the muscle gives you the message to reverse. As you become more flexible, the range of motion will obviously increase, but that's secondary for short term development.

    The cool thing about stretching is that once you're consistent, you will see results quickly.

    Hey Girlie,

    Your thread has drawn new blood into the Masters. Good stuff.

    I was one blind date away from taking a job at the Bank of New South Wales in 1966 when I met Randee, my sweetheart. 44 years now. My passport was stamped and flight booked. Never since had the notion to visit Oz. Been a lot of places in the world...but all above the equator.

    Stand up in the machine (like you would be seated in it but stand up) and as you slide down into the seat push the machine up. That will get the first rep up without bring it too far back so as to hurt your shoulder. I have to do that with my hammer chest here, too.

    Shit me neither......great tip! We dont have a hammer, but we do have a similar chest press with cable plates. It has a foot push to get you started.

    I see you're very close to unassisted pullups!!!!

    Do you do glute-ham-raises for hamstrings?

    glute-ham-raises?

    Nope. Don't know what that is. Right now I'm doing the MAX-OT program exactly as written.

    Leaving now for the gym...it's delt day.

    Certainly, you've seen one of these odd contraptions before? That's a glute-ham raise.

    They're not in all gyms.

    It works the back of the legs. It's a good stretching type exercise if you hold no weight, and a good complement to squats/leg press if you hold some weight.

    Just something for later or when ya get lucky and see one in a gym. :-)

    Your pic doesn't show up. Is it a Butt Blaster? I like those things. Used one at my gym in PA. edit: I clicked on the pic and it showed up. We just have a regular hyperextension thingie. I do have one of those at my PA gym.




    So as if I wasn't in a bad mood already...

    I get dressed, write out my workout (starting weights), pack my backpack, take my bike outside when is dawns on me it's Sunday. Since I'm not working I forget what day of the week it is. I came back inside and check the time. 12:37pm. Called the gym to see what the hours are today...close at 1pm. gggrrrrrrr!!!! Now I'm REALLY cranky!

    So get this...some chick commented on my youtube videos and told me I lift too heavy. She said I shouldn't push myself so hard because I'm overtraining. LMAO!

    Thank you!

    Nighttime here...I can't sleep. Dozed off for about 20 minutes and had a weird dream. Once I woke up I couldn't get back to sleep. So..here I am...

    I started taking 3mg of Melatonin. That helps me sleep. I have weird dreams all the time. Wish I would have some fun dreams. The days have been boring this winter.

    Unless there's a bench press contest I joined and didn't know about it doesn't matter how much I bench.

    I take GABA before bed. Melatonin never did anything for me.

    I missed the gym today. Didn't do much today to get tired enough for sleep. I can think of something that would relax me and help me get to sleep but, alas, he doesn't get home from work for another 36 hours or so.
