good to see you are back, good luck with your training.

So, I'm back again and this time fat and weak.

Bodyweight 213 lbs/ 96.6 kg

Training over the past year has been sub-optimal. Shoulder injury returned so I got discouraged and gave up. I have big new plans for the new year though, which involve mostly front squats since they have never bothered my shoulder and hopefully learning to properly snatch and clean and jerk. This gym not too far away now has a "crossfit section" with bumper plates and no silly rules about not dropping weights so that is where i'll be training. Other than that, I'm moving along just fine with my goal to occupy more space 8)

[quote="Goob"][quote="vegan hal"]and w/ squats, you definitely do NOT want to go wide grip. because the key is have your upper back tight which is important to the lift.

I was in your position back in January when i started back up after taking 2 months off. i started very very light and just kept at the shoulder rehab stretches and such. and working on proper form. you'll get there.


I think I'm sticking with front squats only for a while. Did some testing and seems not to aggravate my shoulders. I'd very much prefer not to take time off of squatting.



I am def joining the squats team as well. They seem to actually really help!

[quote="tal"]Welcome back!

Thanks! I thought everyone I remembered was long gone by now. I'm not going to be as active as I once was, but this is a place I've always liked so I want to continue to be a part of it.
