Nice session Ox! still waiting for some vids..
 
Now then, a full day's load and only up 1 1/2 lbs... I had a 3 course meal and gained 4lb, where's the science in that

Cheers Neil, i'll try get some vids of some reverse band deadlifting this week mate, not doing much event stuff at the mo so nothing much of interest to film really.
 
Increase was small yesterday mate, so much so i've had a relaxed day today too, just had a  huge roast dinner with roast spuds! Nom nom nom!

Lol! I'll spike it next vid, puts another foot on my height lol!
Daeds felt ok but lockout harder than the video shows!
 
Using a safety squat bar, (though mines not 100% like a proper one) forces the bar high up on you back and throws your body forward hard working every muscle in the back of your body very very hard. If you get the chance to try one, do it! Very humbling bit of kit!

Ahhh I see, cheers. What about stability, doesn't look the safest piece of kit I've seen used, when you engage it does it lock you in more than it shows?

Throws stability off a bit but you get a good firm hold from the handles, feels very safe to use, just can't use as much weight due to centre of gravity being thrown out. Mine also probably makes the core work harder as its a hollow bar so most of the weight is on the bar ends which effects the feel of the bar. Works ok though.

I've embedded a few for you bud, didn't know if there was a limit per post so didn't get too carried away.
 
Solid hair do, miss mine now, I liked how the pavement crowds parted when I had a mohican. Nice to see the work for once. You really do have it down coming off the floor, strong work
