Strangely, I have patella tendonitis which back squats HATE
Its not so bad on fronties though Confused


Seem to be finding a few folk with knee probs that prefer fronties. I can understand it for back issues, but I find my knees are pushed much further forward on fronties which I thought would be worse.

My problem was ACL and cartlidge. It usually stiffens up and swells up after back squat, especially with higher volume.

If I take the taurine it doesn't happen so much. My body never likes the drive home after events though

6/12/10

Seated shoulder press on flat bench
barx30
60x10
80x1

110x5
110x5

Behind the neck Jerk

GC Bench, decided to try tucking arms in rather than going wide wih elbows
60x8
100x10
120x5
120x5
felt a bit strange as its a different movement. Will give it a few weeks and see. It seems to hit the tricep more, which I suppose is the goal. Just need to try them a bit heavier

Seated lock outs form sticking point at chin, on flat bench
60x6
70x3
70x3

Lock out from mid forehead
70x3
70x4

All in all a weak as piss session. Pressing is not going well at all just now, everything is way down on what it was. Need to get my finger out I think

Hmm you can't be that dehydrated for the cramps in the back maybe stretching before you start could help and during the sets fir just now.
But sound like to mr that the lower back is getting tired very quickly. Maybe time to work on the tech

Dunno mate. It happened for a spell in the summer, and it happened with everything, then went away.

I think you might remember the session where I had to stop half way home and have a lie down at the side of the road after KB swings.

I have not drank any water today, which will prob have played a part. Hopefully it will pass soon

That's right people thought you died by the road side Grin

But I suppose not having any water will be adding to the problem
