Hahahhahha! Have fun with your new toy!


#3062

That reminds me of the old joke I live by.
I always get the last word with my wife… yes dear.
Enjoy a great investment in your health.


#3063

I’ll be like a young child at Christmas when it arrives.

Left shoulder is feeling grumpy from squats. For those who aren’t aware I had a labrum repair done on it a few years ago.


#3065

Probably the external rotation to grab the bar.


#3066

Have you tried experimenting with grip? As in (1) full grip vs (2) thumbless grip flexed with heel of hand under the bar vs (3) thumbless grip heel of hand over the bar? Last one probably wouldn’t be a good idea for low bar though


#3067

Yes to a point … I can only go for a few weeks using a closer grip with a conventional bar on squats. Once you also factor in my pressing volume things start to go south.


#3068

Yep I use a tumbless with palms high done it for years… It’s more a mobility issue and wear thing. Normally I use what is know as a buffalo bar with a wide grip since my repair. Getting ready to switch to using a yoke safety squat bar once it arrives in a week or so.


#3069

That’s because your pressing like Atlas lifting the world :earth_americas::+1:


#3070

Oui! :roll_eyes: Don’t inflate his ego too much :rofl:


#3071

Have fun with your new toy!


#3072

The SSB is really, really comfortable. You’ll love it.
