I’ve heard this before, but because it’s 3-dimensional, I didn’t know which direction to bend the bar. Toward me, away from me, but now I understand towards my toes
That is a great queue. Snap that twig and use your lats to pull the bar out of the rack.

Well, I’m in drought-land. I may be a refugee in my lifetime

We’ve had 2” of rain this year.

December!!?!?!


Back Day
I hit reverse rows on bench to practice back drive and row posture.
5x10x80

Perpendicular grip pull downs:
5x10x140

One handed low cable rows
5x10x60 (prob 30)

Face pulls
5x10x80 (prob 40)

Reverse rows
5x10xbody weight

High row machine:
5x10x80

Low row machine
3x10x80

Prob could have gone harder today though. Pump was tight at first but I got looser as I went.

I really want to do whatever it takes to hit 305 on bench ASAP.

Most muscular is looking better. Your delts we're really popping hard towards the end of the pose.

I like to butt my fists together when I do it. It opens up the torso to let me see a little bit of lat, and makes me look bigger than if I brought my arms further in.

I’ll practice it. Take that advice and try next time I hit chest. Prob Sunday.

Haven’t heard from work, so it’s gonna be another waiting-weekend

It’s not related to weightlifting, because I’ve always been this way.

Anyone else just SHAKEY?

As in, your hands have a unsteadiness to them at all times? People ask me if I’m hypoglycemic or tired frequently when I gesture, because my hands shake.

It’s worse when I’m tired or hungry, emotional or pumped-up.

Only once did I ask my doctor when I was younger and he was like: you’re fine.

It doesn’t interfere with anything other than I can’t do the freeze-frame challenges on social media a few years ago.

I call it my Michael J Fox impersonation, but it’s not that severe.

I have a co-worker that has something similar. Hands shake frequently for no reason or explaination. Runs in his family apparently.

Some kind of nervous disorder is my guess for him.

This board is a great resource and community. It’s been a tremendous support.

But I’ve used too much of a good thing.
I’m gonna refocus on my own habits: I will spend less time here.

I’ve got the settings in place on my device: I have a daily time limit and will be spending significantly less time on the board for the foreseeable future.

I hope the time I don’t spend mindlessly scrolling or chatting, becomes time resting, being mindful, reading, or something healthier for me.

It’s my own fault that spending time but largely social media has warped my sense of reality. So I’m working to improve. I’m giving myself the bare minimum time to avoid missing DM’s or check for updates.

But I’m trying to cut out the mindless scroll.
We’ll see how long that sticks.
