Muscle Recovery Complex for Strength & Power

Post by Avocadoshake on Tue Dec 25, 2012 3:57 pm

Just saw that looks intriguing. I might do the kneeling exercises and may try the corkskrew (carefully).

Muscle recovery workouts can be HIGH intensity.

I'm kind of curious about that one ^ :idea2:

I've never tried pressing like that before though, looks interesting. I would be forced to do it that way due to my low ceiling, so I'll get a dumbbell handle and give it a try. Thanks for posting this.

P.S. That's a wide stance SLDL, not a Sumo deadlift.

yeah thats the thing.... he posts it as a "recovery" work out, but i dont understand why you would heavily load the body after already completing a workout. I can see it being a good finisher maybe, but the recovery part I'm having trouble wrapping my mind around.

I wonder if he has any references that he pulled this idea from.

Other thing i don't understand is why he'd load his shoulder from such a disadvantageous position in his T-push up to press.

I think the guy just doesn't know what he's talking about, frankly.

That's a good point, and I think what I said above covers this too. To be honest, I was not very impressed with the video overall. The only thing that looks to have any value to me is the press from a kneeling lunge, and only because I have a low ceiling. Otherwise I would do a standing one arm press.

I have a very high value on your opinion.

that covers my thoughts. Actually I'll try the kneeling presses tomorrow, to see the difference, if any.
I researched the corkscrew and think I might be doing this exercises in my deload week, seems very good for addressing my imbalances, I guess.

Thanks Avo. :) The corkscrew looks good too, I neglected to mention. It is like rotating medicine ball wood choppers (which I would rather do).

I'll do it with the sledge, which i should just use while deloading a few times. Lots of unilateral whole body and stabilizing work.
