thanks for all of the replies…especially the one about the coke bottle..lol     CF is so anti gloves, belts etc…thought they may be anti long socks…seriously though should not be necessary to disinfect the bar when i am done with it

Not leading with the shoulders works pretty well also ...

Cheers, kempie

hey dog…that’s what i am looking for!.....i was actually thinking about keeping arms perpenticular and right below my scapulae.  I was thinking about dragging the bar up my legs like Rip says to do too.  do you really think i am leading with shoulders too much?  i tweaked back two weeks ago and really trying to focus on form today…i think i had been coming up too soon with hips so i tried to keep chest up.  got up to 295 x 5 with no pain but seriously i think i may need a coach.  Form just never seems right to me

If your scap is in the right position your arms will not be perpendicular.

finally PR’d my shoulder presses….130# for 5 reps.  That seemed to take forever without the benefit of micro plates.

...micro plates.

Cut a short piece of 5/8” chain, and make it into a loop slightly larger than your bar. These are about 0.7 lb. per pair. Cheap and effective.

Any size chain works, just weigh it on a kitchen scale.

Or you can take the scale INTO home depot much to the bemusement of the guy you have cutting the chain . . .

could be your recovery capacity and/or over programming of metcons too.

sorry to hear about your injury though.  that sucks.  use the time to perfect form.

And check out Rippetoe’s injury therapy stat. 

I think it’s out on the web somewhere.

thanks TP…will check it out.  3 weeks ago it was a little back pain..never expected it to be the hammy this time.  Always feel as if i am cheating myself by resting too much…dunno…just may not be made for this

thanks for your input bro.  I am def not (i don’t think) overprogramming the metcons…if anything, i am taking it pretty easy with them.  Ever since i started SB i hardly ever make an attempt to even do the MS wod…i make something up but it’s hardly as hard

i want to try Bill Starr’s rehab plan for my pulled hammy.  Any ideas…should i do normal DL’s with the bar only or straight leg DL’s?  I injured it doing normal DL’s   I think this also means NO FS’s or BS’s for couple weeks until the rehab is done??

I’d start with the bar, but do normal DLs.  Do the full rom of what you were doing. 

I’d guess no bs because of the range of motion . . .
