That just made me walk crooked for two days.


[Two bulging discs that press on a nerve cluster in my lower back.]

I had a bulging/compressed disc from playing sports in high school. It's one of the reasons why I train my back so much and the main reason I got serious about losing weight. It's the most disabling feeling. Training my back for strength has done wonders for me. Improved my posture, the way I walk, the way I sit; making my core strong has alleviated nearly all my back pain. Is your injury too severe to do weight training? I was lucky enough to avoid surgery, so all I needed was 6 months of therapy. Then I got fat, lol.

I do rack pulls and deficits conventional, but I'm still too scared to pull heavy using conventional stance.

Fun fact: The most common deadlift injury is a torn bicep

I'm going to try 455 again in two weeks. I need to work on hip posture for lock outs. My bar speed is perfect, but I need the hip drive and posture chain power.

I'm totally with you there on the back pain thing. My back and neck only hurt if I stop lifting heavy weights. My chiropractor told me to NEVER lift any weight that would compress my spine. I ignored him and started doing deadlifts and presses and squats and feel nothing in my back when I lift. It's awesome. I think the huge load on my core actually pulls my spine back into alignment.

Last night at the gym (GOLD'S GYM, where a bro's a bro), some dude was actually doing bicep curls in the squat rack.

I was all like "What the **** are you doing? That's a squat rack, BRO." in my head.

He had very large arms. I didnt want to get put in a headlock. Don't be silly.

I believe that keeps you from "cheating" on curls.

I can understand people using the squat rack for bicep curls as long as they have no other options. The common however is people using the squat rack to curl 65lb-75lb.. instead of using the straight curl bar.

If he's doing straight bar curls its acceptable, half the gyms I've been in really dont have a spot to use a straight bar that isnt a bench press setup or in a squat rack.

Yeah, some gyms dont have straight curl bars. Its much easier to do them at the curl bar holder rack though.

But then you look like a douche when block the walking area on both sides of the curling bar holder.

You do your curls then you move off to the side. If people cant wait 15 seconds for me to finish my 120lb curl set then thats their problem.

Then why are you even using the curling rest? If you're not going to leave the bar on the curling rest just go put it on the floor in the corner somewhere and curl there. You've still made a squat rack useless by taking the bar out of it, so you might as well just use the squat rack.
