Just a fun tip for everyone. Also you can say fag wrist if you're into that

The main issue I have with it are when working with dumbells, using cable machine to do arms and curling machines kills it. When using a straight bar for curling it doesn't hurt it but if I use a curl bar it kills it.

That may be rooted in a mobility issue in your forearms and wrists. I would suggest also looking into some stretches for long-term improvement. "Front Rack Mobility" would be a useful topic to research.

As I age I am getting better at stretching all the time. It is the result of an injury.

I've struggled with wrist pain off-and-on for a couple of years, curl/ez bar would always make the pain flare up. I haven't had much pain at all in the past ~6 months, after using a wrist brace for several weeks and just lifting heavy shit all the time. Think I eased the wrist strain and then gained some hand/joint strength. shrug

What kind of brace?

2018-02-14 03:28:14 UTC  

this tbh

Anyone else bench in the squat rack when it gets heavy? I’ve been doing it when the gym isn’t crowded and it’s pretty sweet especially since no spotter

It was some effort but worth. I finally got to use a bench wide enough for my shoulders

2018-02-14 19:59:04 UTC  

@Deleted User thanks brother.

2018-02-14 20:11:42 UTC  

@JesseJames#9618 No problem. I sometimes wear wrist wraps (Nordic lifting brand) for weights, but I wore the Mueller Fitted Wrist Support at work for several weeks and noticed a significant difference/improvement.

Press F for my squat career fellas. Dunzo.

2018-02-15 00:49:26 UTC  

Joints?

2018-02-15 00:56:35 UTC  

Aye

2018-02-15 00:56:57 UTC  

@Deleted User thanks for the help bro.

2018-02-15 00:58:26 UTC  

@Deleted User come on bro get some osteo bi flex 💪🏼

2018-02-15 01:00:34 UTC  

And the squats are really starting to take a toll on my knees

2018-02-15 01:02:30 UTC  

Oh believe me man I understand 100% I was just kidding around.

2018-02-15 01:05:17 UTC  

It sucks because I really like them. Especially the warm ups. They feel really good on my hip flexors and back you know?

2018-02-15 01:05:58 UTC  

I like squats the most out of all the big lifts

2018-02-15 01:10:59 UTC  

Deadlift > bros

2018-02-15 01:43:25 UTC  

I agree, I'm fond of the deadlift

2018-02-15 01:50:43 UTC  

Y'all gotta bench, bro!

I’m not bailing on deadies or bench lads. Just squats.

2018-02-15 17:05:44 UTC  

Bench is my worst lift. I use my longish arms as excuse

2018-02-15 17:20:26 UTC

2018-02-15 21:45:46 UTC
