I really need to pick up BJJ here
Did some very mock fighting during the warrior dash and I want to get into it
All I do is spar with IE folks and practice on my heavy bag
I'm not huge on bjj but I know @Deleted User knows a thing or two
Oh yeah, I wrestled around with the old man this summer
And he kicked my ass pretty solidly
Who has some experience with massage balls/rollers? I’ve gotten to where my back and shoulder muscles stay so tense they’re almost always sore. I have curvature of the spine from a moto accident from when I was younger so that doesn’t help but I thought I might try one of these balls or rollers.
I do, but tbh it'd be very difficult to explain not in person
So you think they work? Is it something I could learn to use properly from YouTube or something
I've used them and got some relief
I think I’ll pick one up tomorrow and see how it goes.
@JesseJames They can be very helpful but it has to be a consistent habit to have any real relief.
@JesseJames Foam rolling is clutch. I do not think I would be able to function without it. Remember that the tightness you feel can be stemming from other parts of the body, so roll out as much as you can. For example my lower back gets tight if I don't keep my hips loose
@Robtheroman payment processor good to go? Lol I think i still have three shirts in my cart.
Dude, nice! Very happy to see you back up. Looks like I need to make another order soon.
anyone else follow professional bodybuilding?
@Deleted User I was at the park today doing my routine, and two Asian guys showed up and started doing like 100 pull-ups each
Wiry little feckers, those Asians.
Haha. Were they big? Or lean
Asians are natural ninjas
100 pull-ups = skipped leg day
Iron path is useful for olympic lifters and any kind of weight training, pretty neat stuff. Free version only lets you keep 3 videos at a time, though.
---> it tracks the path of your bar from a side view.
@Pat-MA They ere 5'2 skinny af. They were explosive pulls, too. It was like being at the circus
explosive pulls are easy, those mofos have no bodyweight and momentum was helping them. damn manlets showing us up
Extra power in the gym
They didn't kip at all
Did they lock out their arms?
Bro, idfk, it was pretty impressive even if the form wasn't strict
Yeah but did they engage their hips?
just kidding bruv, wish I could knock out that many
I knew some kids in high school that did cross country, were thin and short, could knock out 40+ pull-ups with ease
It was weird man. They did 20 pullups, then did a set of 10 pushups on the raised bar, then did 20 more
When in the army, I would do wide arm pushups for my PT test. My range of motion was like 4 inches. Maxed those shits.
Any of you fine gents rock climb?
