ITT: Name one exercise you will never do no matter what.
>The Clean and Jerk
One stop to snap city if your doing that shit, borderline crossfit tier.

I can understand not wanting to do Clean and Jerk, considering how complex it is and how much you have to train your CNS to do it properly, but it's probably one of the best all around strength training exercises ever created. Calling it "crossfit tier" is plain fucking retarded.
try this. instead of laying the bar flat across your palm lay it with most of the weight between your thumb and forefinger. kinda like you would hold an ez bar. or if you have an ez bar just use that
ITT: Beta fucks who are scared of "complex" movements, not knowing that every single exercise adds to the whole. Enjoy your shitty "deadlift,squat,benchpress and overhead"-only physique, enjoy your slow turtle movements motherfuckers. Didn't expect anything else from motoric-retarded people
>tfw can't do olympic lifts because of a fucked up knee
>cartilage is destroyed, can half squat at best
Fuck you, I would do anything to have the opportunity to to do olympic lifts.
Fucking betas, go do a brosplit while sucking joff off
Do bodyweight squats then and work up to a pistol. You'll get the juicy ass without fucking your knees up.
But you best work up slowly to a pistol or you'll definitely rekt your knees.
You're just mad you're getting outlifted by me, a 140 pounds manlet. You will never even come close to my conditioning, speed and the precision of the techniques. (Clean and Jerk, Snatch, Overhead Squat etc)
Its real cool and gym bros wanna push their limits, but you gotta understand what you're dealing with. Your limits. Humans aren't really made to deadlift 1000 lbs. Its a spectacle, but that's about it.
Joint problems? Where'd you pull that information from, your behind? If oly lifting causes joint problems, then doing SL5x5 or Jim's 5/3/1 or any other PL routine will result in the same.
%100 correct, hernia's shouldn't happen and if we didn't have medical knowledge or where back in the days we would be considered weak or inefficient to society, might be a spectacle as you say but certainly not worth the repercussions. I guess what else do you expect from the same type of people who are on cycles and roid up, they don't really think or have the sense to consider there future.
Most of /fit/ summarized:
First 3 months:
"I just started and I want to get huge, I'll just do some split routine" Then they see they haven't improve (think they will be buff in a year time) So they switch to either SS, SL or 5/3/1.
First to second year:
"Oh, i'm doing a PL routine now because I really only cared about strength!" Leaving out the Cleans for Rows because their body is literally retarded and uncoordinated from playing too much World of Warcraft back in the days and sitting on their crusty cheetos chair seating. They typically feel better about themselves because they can deadlift 2,5-3x their bodyweight and they're soo strong! Meanwhile they get out of breath when walking to the grocery store or have the flexibility of a treetrunk. (I'm so strong and fit fuck yeah mark rippetoe rocks!)
And they'll justify always picking out the easiest ways by saying something along the lines of:
"Oly lifts are too dangerous and it doesn't even cause muscle growth" or
"It's bad for your joints" or
"Why would I want to do oly lifts that's retarded"
All in the meanwhile they open threads about: "Hey guys what supplements are best? I'm already taking Omega3 and the latest preworkout supplements!" not realizing that fitness is a lifestyle and not something you achieve in 1 year of lifting and that supplements are overrated as fuck if you're eating healthy (which, if you're not eating healthy you're doing it wrong in the first place)
>fitness is a lifestyle
If fitness is more important than living, you are a beta cuck. Fitness is excellent for the well-being, it shouldn't have to be a lifestyle it should be a normal part of life.
low bar squat
>hurr durr let me force a totally unnatural bar placement so I can maximize leverages and impress people with meh squat numbers instead of actually trying to work the muscle XDDD
That's why i front squat. Balances work required with core, back, and lower body.
One of my best friends went to snap city while doing his last set of lowbar squats on his 5/3/1 PLer routine. Ended up getting foot drop and numbness along his lower back and left leg.
Wasn't even a PR.
Barbell snatch, overhead squat, or anything with the shoulder joint in that position. Pistol squat is moronic and a good way to trash your knee. Honestly I could only do 20 lifts total. 12 if I had to. Dare me to post physique lol
"Damn anon, you been Hittin the gym?"
"Yeah I used to bench 8 million for reps before my big toe blew out"
Everyone has an "injury" that they begrudgingly grin and bear (a piss poor excuse for being a lazy fat ass after high school)
Injuries happen but you can and will recover if you have resolve.
>Have class with massively obese dude
>Constantly jokingly complaining about getting older, will give long-winded explanations about how your body just goes completely to shit as you age and it totally sucks
>Is 29 years old
Not trolling, I never squat. I've read a lot of legitimate science about how bad it is for your joints even when done correctly.
I stick with leg press, weighted lunges, and running, and I have perfectly fine legs.
Don't want to go all snibedi snab on my spine
You have a weak knee. You need to strengthen it, and the best way to do that is squats and deadlift. You have a weak hamstring, strengthen it and you won't have acl problems. You can only do that with squats and deadlift, only
Part of the no squat crew here.
I know that if you do squats with perfect form every time then you stand very little chance of actually injuring yourself.
Problem is I am not perfect and I don't want to accident my fuck up at some point and slip a disc or some shit cause my form wasn't 100% on some squat and I drew the unlucky card that day.
knew it, only a fragile little bitch boy would even consider getting snapped by powercleans
I'm in the first week of my 2nd month in the gym and today I powercleaned your bitch ass bodyweight 5x3
that's good, but stop being a pussy. you'll have to do powercleans if you're on SS
I actually started off doing PCs, but one of the personal trainers at the gym where i go told me that my technique was whack and that i'd be better off doing the big 3 and some easier compounds to start. So i did, since I don't want to injure myself. I plan to learn PCs as soon as i find a good teacher, but so far i've been out of luck.
I figure i'll build some back first so i can perfect the technique without snapping.
I squat and squatted heavy (repping 3x8 at 365lb) for a long time.
My fucking knees hate me. I'm 27 and have been squatting for 12 years, just recently started using wraps. They help a lot but if I move to quickly the quadriceps tendon and patella begin to scream.
I ran EQ for 16 weeks and that helped, but they're still kinda shit. I'm basically going to give up on squats and start doing single legged leg press and pistols.
So, I think I'm quitting squats. I still OHP, bench, and do other things.
Basically for some reason the muscle which picks up the front of your foot, anterior tibialis, stops working (think pulling your toes to your knee)
This is usually due to neuro damage, either in the spinal cord, brain or periphery (nerve in the leg)
In this guys case, it's likely he had a partial lesion in the spinal cord causing it- basically no signal gets sent to the muscle
>motor I care traded
Lol this. I just read about form online and turned up to the gym and lifted ffs! I didn't even play sports and I can do it. God knows how unfucking coordinated most of fit is if they constantly complain about injuries due to benching / squatting
Lol this. Nobody can be serious when thy say this is worth doing for any reason other than competition stats boosting. Such a retarded movement. Even when you see pics of fit girls doing it they give they look like uncoordinated fatties that are collapsing under the weight of the bar.
I see your bosu ball squat and raise you atlas overhead pistol squat.
Also I wouldn't attempt the exercise in pic related.
I would actually do this over the bosu squat.
The weight of the stone means it would be relatively stable, and the slop of it means I would have better ankle flexibility to actually maintain better posture into the squat.
lel no, bodyweight means no weight at all, just practicing form. Unless you want to end up like that stupid fuck who snapped his shit up the first fucking day of doing squats and blamed /fit/
>the fact your injured just means your weak, you allowed yourself to be injured
