How much band tension do you create?
Not sure, next time I do it i'll find out. Its a red mini band stretched out to about its max, so I would guess about 20kg maybe
OHP 80x3x3 @6-7
Tricep pushdowns 60kg x12x3
Reverse Db flyes 10kg x10x3
BW +10kg x15x3
Tried reverse hypers @Jester but they gave me a lot of weird pain in the low back so didn’t do hem
Any tips to get rid of tricep tendinitis would be greatly appreciated!
More bicep curls, not even kidding.
Nice ink btw.
Baraja has this theory that you keep working it once you can find the sweet spot mix between load and volume. Check his latest Instagram post - coincidental timing.
Thanks mate, What’s the Instagram account?
Bloody autocorrect. Baraki...
Less frequency, lighter loading, higher reps to create more lactic acid and lower loading to reduce extreme tension on the tendons.... you know, all the stuff Powerlifters hate to do. Haha
I never do loads above my 6 RM mainly because I want to avoid injury.
(And also avoid triceps l exercises where you are extending the arm under loading with the elbows fully flexed, I don’t recommend going any report than 90 degrees arm flex Welshmen doing triceps stuff). (Full ROM close grip bench, push downs where you let your arms fully flexed, instead do board press lockouts, and only flex your arm to 90 degrees and no further in push downs, etc.)
I avoid push downs like the plague personally. Have always resulted in tendonitis or something similar for me.
Thanks @Sci !
Going to start by halving the frequency from 4 to 2 times benching per week, and using 2 different variations of bench and see how that helps
Agreed. I mostly rely on overhead pressing and benching. But My favorite triceps focus is pullovers where my hands are behind my head. Nice stretch and triceps strain without the tendon pain of push downs and nose breakers.
Another step to trying to eliminate the elbow tendinitis went back to 'thumbs over' hand position when squatting.
150 x4x4 @N/A back was been feeling a little bit tight, so limited the weight. Felt light and moved really well. Experimented with taking my air in for bracing through my nose and felt like I could get a better brace and more 360 pressure into the belt. Also focusing on keeping my knees over my toes longer out of the hole to stop them drifting back and hips rising to fast. Not entirely happy with bar path though.
98 x10x3 @7
Gave these another go @Jester
Didnt feel the pain I felt last time, but load was minimal, will just try and progressively load these over the coming weeks. Probably only once a week to start with
DB Bicep Curls
Finished with McGills big 3
125 x5x4 @7 - tried to descend faster to put the breaks on harder before the bar touches the chest. A lot harder doing it this way
130 x4x3 @6-7
41kg x20 +6+6+6+6+5
25kg of plate weight x12x3
98kgs is awfully difficult to make happen?
Only the first plate has a weight marked on it at 7kg had 14 plates so I think it was 98kg
And apparently its not that impressive lol
125 x5x3 @7 - finally something that resembles a front rack position rather than the bodybuilder grip
125 x5x4 @6-8 fatigued quickly on these mainly due to having to rush the sets to get the sets in
It's fun watching you lift, @Browner! Thanks for the IG/YT links - I connected a few months back.
Havent logged much this past week, but I have been training.
120 x4x5 @7-8
I'm determined to get a decent technique and in particular front rack position on these.
125 [email protected]
A bit of a head cold today
130 x8x3 @7
