Anaconda, Bad, and Friends: Lifting to Failure Good or Bad? One muscle fiber (cell) One fascicle (bundle of muscle fibers) Connective tissue Muscle Myofibril Blood vessels and nerves Tendon @strengthcoachtherapy strengtt Myofibrils Striations Nucleus A review of literature and best practice SHOULD YOU LIFT TO FAILURE? - πŸš€ The answer: It depends! Usually no, but maybe sometimes yes. @strengthcoachtherapy explains below, and I agree with every word. . πŸ€” Lifting to failure is 100% not necessary for gainz and progress. If done too much, it can even hinder progress. For many novice lifters, going to failure is overused and overrated. Sorry bro, but you don't need to scour the gym looking for a spot for every bench press set. Just lift. . ❌ For compound lifts, missing reps can be downright dangerous (squat, bench, deadlift). This is when training injuries happen. Going to failure is much safer when you are performing single joint exercises. Examples include hamstring curls, machine work, lateral raises, arms, etc. These are low risk movements and failing can be helpful to tax smaller muscle groups. . βœ… Failing reps and pushing it to the limit can be be helpful for hypertrophy work and creating maximal oxidative stress. It's also sometimes necessary for power and oly lifters to truly find and push their max. Overall, it is still more advised for bodybuilding techniques. Failing should also be used less frequently as you get stronger and closer to your genetic potential. . πŸ€“ Smart training is all about weighing cost versus benefit. Even if you can get away with failing now, it has the potential to cause problems down the road. (Looking at you, young lifters). Furthermore, lifting to your 1 rep maximum on a weekly basis is not a wise way to structure your training. Try a reps day, a light day, and a heavy day, instead of putting all 3 into everyday. . πŸ™…πŸ½β€β™‚οΈ Lifelong gains are made by maximizing reward and minimizing risk. It's a marathon, not a sprint. Don't make missing reps a habit, the benefit is minimal if any at all. Trust me my friends, you can still train hard and reach your goals by finishing your lifts. .

Bad, Complex, and Definitely: @nubgunner "One day we were tasked to clear a section of road when we were setup in a complex ambush. We took fire from a house where some of my guys dismounted and started to clear when they took fire. So I was the lead humvee driver with the 50. Cal on top. I drove down to get in better position to suppress the Threat when I was hit by a massive IED that threw my truck and flipped it. Ejected my Gunner into The court yard by the house my guys were in. They were able to get to him first. I was then trapped inside the humvee. Some how I crawled over the two radios and Blue Force Tracker out the right rear that was sheeted off. My Doc got to patted me down and then we took more fire as we ran back up toward the rear of our trucks as they suppressed the Threat. In the entire time we had no back up, no medical evacuation and had to drive 15-20 minutes to get a evacuation helo. I had 2nd and 3rd degree burns on my hands legs arms pretty bad. My hands are the worst. Lost all my fingers and a lot of use in my hands. But with that all happening it was definitely a long road to recovery. I was retired in 09,After getting out I earned a degree in His from Ohio State and started a family where I'm the stay at home Mr. Mom Now. But my real passion is guns and gear. There's nothing that I don't ever not do really. I still shoot really well, it may have taken me a long time to figure out how but I always find a way around things. I never let it get me down." @nubgunner πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ

Bodies , Curving, and Memes: BUILD CORE STABILITY @dr.jacob.harden USE THIS EASY DRILL FOR YOUR LOW BACK PAIN Do you have back pain when you stand for long periods of time? Or when you raise your arms overhead?πŸ™†β€β™‚οΈ . If you do, your back may be sensitive to extension. You see, the joint stress of your low back is distributed between your vertebral bodies and discs in the front and the facet joints in the back. . How much your back is curved can affect how this stress shifts. The low back naturally has a backwards curvature. When we sit, we load the front of the vertebrae more because the curve tends to flatten and be more straight. When we stand, we tend to be more extended and load the facet joints more. . So if you have pain when standing or bending backwards, it's most likely due to a sensitivity to extension. And the best way to combat that is to train the anterior core muscles (πŸ’ͺrectus abdominus and obliques) to keep you from repetitively extending in day to day movements and posture. . This requires not only strength but motor coordination too. And the dead bug is the perfect exercise for the job. This band cue will help you really focus on keeping those ribs tucked down so you don't overextend. Focus on quality over quantity. Go slow and controlled and don't forget to BREATHE!πŸ˜₯ .
