    Always expect the worst ,you're quietly surprised then if it turns out better than you thought....

    Playd on the power rack a little. I can get about 3/4 of a pull up done. So I did a few negative pull ups.... jumped up and lowered myself down... did a few barbell curls with just the bar. Nothing really serious just goofing around and getting familar with the equipment.
    Cracking in the negatives will have you doing full P/U's in no time, still do negatives meself for there benefits!

        • Played out in the garage with the barbell today. Did some back squats. Form feels pretty good, though I do seem to want to lean forward a bit at the end, and not stand up completely. The overhead press form needs some work though. It seems to want to get a bit wobbely at the top of the movement. Apparently I need to strengthen the "stabilizers" for that move. The deadlift feels awkward. I seem to be leaning back too far, and on a couple of occasions had to take a step backwards because I got so off balance. It may be a lack of weight on the bar as well... hopefully the weights will make an appearance this weekend... If not, I may have to go get them....

          Dinner tonight (actually lunch) sheppards pie and strawberries....

          Breakfast was yogurt and quikie Lorraine....

          • Some dumb bells or KB's presses will get the stabilizers in the game also isolates each side, you're probably right on the deadlifts as in my experience there ain't much stepping back with a few hundred or more pounds on the bar, in fact there ain't much moving at all....

            Dinner sounds good, sheppards pie is the bomb, not to mention the strawberries!

            • I can feel myself leaning forward when I get tired doing squats too... Definitely something I need to fix. Got any tips?

                I presume it's at the exhausted end of sets/reps when your starting to fail? You could go to half reps, if you do feel yourself leaning and you haven't got a spotter, just to get a bit more out, or maybe finish with a drop set, whilst watching the old form of course!

                    I think we need video clips to be helpful.
                    I like badgers, books and booze, more or less in that order.
