"I'll do it as long as I can, very enjoyable. yes foam rolling does help, also with any aches after the session but they still hurt a little."

Shane replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Front Squat Woes
"You can still milk the program.  Just start blocking it.  Go three weeks at incremental increases, then deload 10% on week four.  So say you end week three at 200#s, begin week four at 180#s. For your hipflexors, have you tried foam…"

Cthulhu's Revenge replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Front Squat Woes
"I second StrongLifts. I've been doing this for about 4 months now, coming to the end of it as I can no longer maintain the incremental increases per session. I found best to do 4 weeks on, and take a week off as my hip flexors hurt from…"

"Do your calisthenics, but instead of weights, try an isometric (static hold) routine.  I'm partial to Precious Monk's, but yoga works too.  Isometrics have a way of resetting your nerves.  Helps you forget old form…"

Shane replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Front Squat Woes
"You asked what's going on in your body: In the beginning, as an untrained (newbie) strength trainer, whether it's bodyweight or powerlifting or weightlifting or bodybuilding; the same processes occur.  The first 6-12 weeks is almost…"

"Thank you so much for all your help! I think I'm going to take a week off, maybe do some light weights or calisthenics over spring break, and then start the 5x5 routine when I get back! You've been an amazing help!"

"In University terms, you just signed up for a graduate course without taking "Intro to ___".  Which I've done.  And which is painful. Volume refers to your rep/set scheme.  Intensity refers to your weight, or in…"

"I don't know the question has been answered. Is this just leg day?"

Jon Kramer replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Front Squat Woes
"My body is pretty average. Definitely not shredded or huge, but don't have toothpick arms: somewhere right in the middle I guess. By volume I assume you mean too much weight, too many exercises, and basically too much everything? Is that…"

Shane replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Front Squat Woes
"Oh yeah. Your form is probably off. Front squat shouldn't really be felt in the hamstrings or inner thighs. It's a quad exercise as much as a lowbar back squat is a hamstring exercise."
Feb 27, 2015
Shane replied to Jon Kramer's discussion Front Squat Woes
"So, you're not underweight.  You're actually right in the middle of a healthy weight range.  Whether that matches up to what your ideal body comp or image is, I don't know.  But really, a bulking routine shouldn't…"

"While we wait, a little bit about muscle soreness: 1~4 hours. Lactic acid. Not precisely correct but it's close enough and in our lexicon. Remedy. Hydrate, stretch, massage. Get the fluid moving out of the muscles. 4~48 hours. DOMS.…"

"Like Sean said, post up your full routine. Otherwise we're just making assumptions. Also, what's your work weight and what's your body weight?"

Though they aren't common in the United States, Jjimjilbangs, Banyas, Onsens, and Hamams are a great places to hang out.  This is a group for men comfortable in their own skin and appreciate the eastern ideas of public bath houses.See More
