2hours leisurely social tennis.
Few but ripe.
I've boon doing lots of push-ups and chin-ups to exhaustion the past day and a half. At random.
Knifegill is christened to be high carb now!Tremendous worms of a swarthy nature pursue me across the sandy blank sky. I stop to think. What the devil AM I up to?!the buttstuff...never interested.

Went and refilled my sand bag, filled it to about 30ish kg i think. Anyway just did a random work out but loved it, chinups with a few pull ups and negative pullups, some deadlifts of the sand bag, lunges and squats with some olympic presses and pushups. Simple as you can get, did it pretty fast paced to the point i was huffing and puffing. Thats the kind of workouts i can do, im over the gym and weights, sets, reps etc.
"When you are in the correct position, stare at a point 12-15 feet in front of you on the floor so your neck can assume its normal anatomical position. You might need to think about keeping your chin down, too" (from Starting Strength, Basic Barbell Training, 3rd edition)

And this is where I think people should do what feels natural to them.
I should point out that I'm not really a fan of the Pez-dispenser head position (neck arched up), but if the lifter needs the cue to keep his chest up and lower back neutral, then so be it.
6 hours of squirrel hunting, chopping wood for my 35 degree low tonight (WTF?), 2 hours of covering the veg for a frost....moved in the calf, horse blankets out of an attic I almost died getting into, pulling all the sheep in with the help of the German Shepherd
Life was a workout today. Tomorrow might see a gym.

2) There are several deadlift variations, ranging from sumo deadlifts to stiff legged deadlifts. Most powerlifting federations allow you to lift pretty much any way you want, and the style you choose has a tremendous impact on your torso angle.
3) There are several types of deadlift bars, ranging from the classic barbell to the trap bar. A trap bar deadlift allows you to keep your torso much more upright without having to worry about your knees.
It occured to me that we were talking about two different things when you asked Knifegill to carry an imaginary tennis ball under his chin, while keeping his head down. Head down, head up and neutral are mutually exclusive head positions if you ask me.
