I'm running my first marathon in a week and a half. v0v
Expecting a shit time since I'm still fat and have terrible impulse control but I'm sure I can complete it nbd without having to walk except maybe to stretch my knees half way through.

Dude good luck! I can't even run a mile without feeling cranky and winded.

I haven't had access to anything heavier than 10lbs this past year, so I've slowly lost my way. Trying to keep fit with body weight exercises. Any recs on how to work towards one (ONE) pull-up would be appreciated. I look forward to reading the reply a year from now.

Bands or do negatives. There are some videos or articles around, but that's the tl;dr.

Really strong bands into less strong bands and/or jumping up and then controlling it down.

Bump. Anyone still alive? I'm learning how to walk again after breaking my spine doing CrossFit.

Further sacrificed my body to sheiko. Bench almost 400 lbs now.

So I always thought I was good at deadlifts and shit at squat and really shit at bench. Turns out I just hadn't filled my pretty huge frame out. I'm really good at bench and squats and uh still good at deadlifts.

I believe my issue ended up being

Poor scapular control and heavily imbalanced rotator cuff muscles (it's my fucking mouse hand, lettuce be real here) is the cause. Gets crazy bad when I game if I don't do constant prehab/rehab.

Why not both?

Competed today. It was over 100 degrees until the end, but I stayed hydrated pretty well.

485/342/551 for my non metric friends. I tore my meniscus last January, then reinjured it shortly after rehabbing it, so it's been a struggle to get my squat up, but finally feeling a good 85-90% there.

I went 7/9, missing a 578 deadlift from resting on thighs twice because (in hindsight) I accidentally rolled the bar in front of me before pulling...twice. Dumbass mistake, but I'll fix it and pull over 600 easily mid next year.

Time for 2016 and some real numbers!

what'd you do to your shoulder breh? i'd separated mine earlier in the year with a grade2 separation that healed unstable...then and just had a motorbikle accident a week ago with a gr3 separation, which is super fun.

so i'd now like to take the time to thank our lord and savior kerri walsh for she said let there be KT tape, and there was KT tape. and kerri saw the tape  was good. and it separated my separated shoulder from pain.

I'll toss you some physio rehab stuff on Skype tomorrow if you want.

Shitty year overall for me fitness wise, shoulder injury that took way too long to recover from puts my bench slightly lower than it was - 315x3 down from 315x4.  I'm sitting in the 280's, so while my weight loss this year wasn't great by any means, at least I've got it back under control.  I think I started the year at 315.

Hit 445x2 on squat, my previously tested max was 455, so maybe a minor increase in my squat max.

Haven't been able to pull over 500 sumo which is what I hit in March, so kind of upset about that.  I did get 480x4 in my last training cycle, but I think I pushed a bit too much and I've just been shit with sumo this cycle, barely got 465x2.

The one little shining victory: After not having pulled conventional for a year, I tried it again when I was failing at a 465 sumo, and pulled 465 pretty... easy.  So instead of trying to rep 490 sumo today, I decided fuck it, I'm going for a max conventional deadlift.  Tomorrow will be the anniversary of you guys telling me my form was shit and I was going to fuck my back up (which I definitely would have if I kept pulling like I was).

Definitely rounded in the upper back (which doesn't bug me on a max attempt), but pulling 545 felt pretty fucking great after a year of little progress and shit like getting laid off, etc.

Also managed a 485 squat, 325 bench and 210 ohp, so PRs all around. So close to a 1400 total.

The deadlift looked good. It's pretty awesome that you cleaned up the form on your own.

Grats on all the PRs. I hope the shoulder gets better ASAP! I tweaked mine a few times this year, but I have good prehab for it now.

Sumo is incredibly form dependant whereas one can retard pull conventional.

I tried to do crossfit, broke my neck and now I'm stuck doing bench only again.

How are things for everyone else?

I wrote up some of the Russian only stuff and actually recommend the app for anyone new to powerlifting if someone can help with form.

Pretty sure anyone benching 4-5 days/week with that volume will just blow a shoulder without great form.

Surviving high volume is all about out of gym life. Sleep too much, eat too much and reduce stress to zero and gains are to be had.

You're basically telling me I need to introduce either weed or xanax into my daily routine. Cause absolutely none of what you're suggesting can currently happen for me without getting medicated.

Dammit, Shaun.

Gains are happening regardless though. Recomp is going guh-guh-guh greeeeat.

My idea of high volume is like off season sheiko for advanced athletes where it literally says "survive" in the excel file.

A test booster won't raise testosterone enough to impact muscle all. I said what I said because you should have no trouble putting on muscle unless it's a training issue or lack of food.

Rehabbing my knee a bit, so trying to get my bench to over 350 so I'm not on a little girl level. At this rate, I'll have a 700 lb deadlift first even without training lower body half the year.

shaun help me get my bench up. my form is ass, always has been. i need tips

Yo, Skype me a video, but not sure how much that'll help.

I do all the bench coaching thes days and assuming the guy knows how to bench at all, these are the major fixes:

Knees out so squeeze glutes and create a base. You're both too tall to tuck probably too.

Shoulders down into your ass. Activate your last and keep them there. Don't lose tightness by over extending at the top.

Over tucking. It makes people much weaker off the bottom because the arms aren't in line with the bar.

The problem is self analyzing these yourself and constantly reminding yourself. Getting a good coach can give you a normal trainees progress of 4-5 years in one year.
