Hey you'd probably like Renegade Rows. They're really a kettleball exercise but db's work fine. It's a plank variation where you get in a plank/pushup position on the kb's/db's an then row one. While maintaining the torso rigid of course and not using a lot of twisting to accelarate the weight. It helps to keep the feet kinda wide at first.

Also, as an alternative to barbell rollouts, if you have a regular old ab roller (cheap to pick) you can hook a band to one to provide resistance. Just whatever you can hook it to about around the same level as the roller. I got that from combatcore and it's very nice.

If you act sanctimonious I will just list out your logical fallacies until you get pissed off and spew blasphemous remarks.

10/6/08

got some good rest the last two days. feelin good. got my xtend today...tried it out...also got a new little boombox for the workout room as my other one took a shit...it did last like...15 years though. got my little tricep rope for facepulls too

doing a 4 day workout...last week it was sunday/tuesday/thurs/fri...i think i can get away with doing the last two back to back, time permitting.


week 2, day 1:

foam/mobility/band walks/over unders/front plate squats

oh squats - 1 x 5

front squats - 90 x 3, 100 x 3, 110 x 3, 90 x 10

bench - 145, 3 x 5

chest supported rows, scap retract and depressed - 70, 3 x 10

facepulls - 25, 2 x 15

dips - 2 x 15

dead bug - 2 x 17

front planks - 2 x 1:45


shoulder posture is getting better. exciting. next week i'll graduate to deadbug version 2. the rows were interesting...went slow and focus on the scap.

The butt wink wasn't as bad as you make it sound. Its there but I guess with your back problems you probably want your form to be absolutely spot on. Nice form on the OH squats btw ( I did see the vid but not until just now). You look very balanced and much more comfortable then most people I have seen trying to learn them.

IW is right. That was not bad at all. Your spine didn't really go past "straight" from what I could see. Way to be on top of things though.

That is sort of a wide stance for front squats..you'll have a bit of a hard time going low. I love the barefoot squatting..but with front squats I think it's permissible to have a shoe with a little heel lift if you want.

I still feel like a I see this sort of uneveness when you squat down. I can't really pinpoint it...

But GREAT JOB.
