I'll be in Birmingham around the New Street area on Thursday and want somewhere to train Thursday evening.

Are there any gyms with good bars etc. within a 5-10 min cab ride from the New Street area?

shanejer said:Intensity is the best program tbf but proper structure and control can add a good few percent to the lifts each year and can highlight and improve weaknesses

If you don't care to much about being as strong as you possibly could be it won't make THAT much difference . You'll still improve just not quite as much.

Are you referring to intensity in terms of weight on the bar compared to your 1RM, or intensity in terms of how hard you push yourself?

Strong, but how far can you throw a bench?

What do you call an artist who has difficulty communicating and empathising with others?

Regardless of whether you're competitive or just a hobby lifter, if you want to obsess why not?

We all know people who do lots of things half heartedly - how boring are they? No one cares whether you lift 100kg or 200kg or 300kg, but equally no one cares about any other aspect of your life, so if lifting makes you happy do it to the best of your ability, and obsess all you like.

If you feel it's getting to a point where it makes you unhappy and you no longer enjoy it, well that's another question altogether, and then maybe it's worth cutting down on.

There is no black and white answer. Do it as much or as little as makes you happy - that doesn't need to directly correlate with the results you get.

For example - even if I knew for certain that I would never put another kg on any of my lifts, I'd still go to the gym because I just enjoy the very act of lifting itself. That's not necessarily correlated to the results I get out of it. Equally, I hate the eating part, so I eat like s**t and accept the consequences.

If being "the strongest I possibly could be" or "the most competitive lifter" made me happy, then maybe I'd take the eating more seriously, because I'd recognise the need to sacrifice in one area to make myself happy in another, but instead I've found a happy medium that works for me.

If lifting taking over your life makes you happy, then there's nothing wrong with that.
» learning the Ab wheel (Go to post)26-01-2016 @ 09:44 
I found a good way to learn is as follows;

Kneel down in front of a wall, so that if you were to roll out, the wheel would hit the wall and stop after a certain point. Flex your abs and break at the hips, then slowly and controlled roll down until the wheel touches the wall. Don't hyperextend your back. Then roll back up.

As you get more and more used to the movement, move your knees further back until you no longer need the wall to prevent yourself faceplanting.

Personally I think you can get all the benefits of the ab roller without ever doing them standing up.

Interesting. I tend to get quad pain just above the knee, which led me to think it was a problem. From an entirely unscientific point of view, I guess it just looks a little uncomfortable. Here's another view;

What do I need to work on in terms of form, from the video below? I'm primarily concerned about the forward travel of my shins and knees, but not so sure how to prevent this happening!

The video shows sets 4,5,6 and 7 of 160kg for 7 triples.
