Tactical Lifting Techniques for Intermediate/Advanced Anonymous 19/10/14(Mon)22:42 No. 31258

Stuff you've used to get stronger that the novice might not know.

For example there's the ulnar reflex. By putting pressure on the ulnar surface of your hand you can curl more than you can otherwise.

Also there's a trick I discovered and used for a muscular contraction imbalance. If for example one of your traps is more easily activated, try lifting with one half of your body visible in a mirror. I'd guess this works along the same line as the trick used for phantom limbs. Make no sense? Try it out.

It's useful advice, what you've put here. I am surprised that such a simple thing would make a difference, but yeah I guess looking at your self in the mirror from an angle would change the parts of your body that you emphasize. It's tough that you can't just use the largest assemblage of mirrors to hook your self up with the easiest exercise routine possible. That would get me back at the gym. I'd be there tomorrow. lol I'd be a life long fitness enthusiast never missing a day at the gym, going there until my death, basically living in the gym.

That's a nice Ski picture, anon.

A lot of people have written about how different lifters have different needs in terms of variety. Westside has its congugate method, which itself was based on some Russian research iirc. But basically if you're getting burned out on an exercise, switching variables can get you revitalized.

Adding bands, belts/beltless, closer/wider grip, closer/wider stance, squatting high/low bar, pulling sumo/conventional, adding in accessory exercises for parent exercises.

So if you're getting burned out try these.

And you're obviously drinking to escape how necessary the obviousness of that really is.

Tempo- paused reps are basically the GOAT variation. They’ll let you get a greater hypertrophic response out of less work, they clean up your technique, and they increase your main lifts like noob gains if you’ve never done them.
