in fact when youre deadlifting 4 plates or more the bar bends upwards so that when the middle of the bar hits a certain height its actually negative weight at that point. but in all other cases the bar counts.
Trapped nerve in my shoulder just totally stopping me doing anything upper body at the moment. Its been irritating me for a few months but its getting very painful now. Just a hot point of pain in what feels like between the top of my arm and the shoulder joint, and just radiates pain all down my arm. The problem is that every time it happens (which doesnt appear to be at any particular angle of movement) the pain just means all strength drops out of the arm.
PT in the gym was criticising my front squat form on Friday, she works at the gym so figured I'd just humour her and took some weight off before trying it her way; managed one rep before it felt like my lower back snapped, could barely walk all weekend. Three times I've listened to people criticising my form on squats in the years I've been lifting and every time it's ended up damaging my back, never again.
Anyway my shoulder's still strawberry floated but I'm being sensible for once and not working through the pain so constantly just doing front squats and cardio then away. Losing hefty muscle up top but at least my legs are looking pretty banging.
Also I strawberry floating hate January in gyms. Hopefully they start dropping off soon. Seriously, why does everyone start at the same time it's strawberry floating retarded, if you join in months like October/November gyms will often run promos to get you in and the place is so much quieter. Makes no sense whatsoever to wait.
