Where exactly is the best spot to pause when you need to fart while lifting?
Concentric portion? Eccentric? Lockout? Don't pause? So many stinkin' options (literally and figuratively).
I'm looking for info. specifically on deadlifts, but fart-points on all exercises would be appreciated.
I tend to pause to fart once I reach lock-out, but when I mentioned this to some buddies at the gym they told me I was crazy.
That's when everything got out of hand.
One guy said it's best to pause to fart when you're setting your stance before your next pull. One guy said everyone knows it's 'let it out as you let it down'.
Voices got raised.
My Russian pal Anatoly said he only deadlifts singles and makes it a point to blast a fart every lift right as he's pulling the weight off the floor. Says he does a little countdown in his head...10..9...8...etc, then he farts big and loud while grunting. Makes him feel 'Strong like Sputnik'.
Another guy screamed over the racket that if he feels a fart coming on he scraps the deadlifts and just does some light cardio.
We all then jockeyed for space to pull some weight off the floor and demonstrate the proper way to fart while lifting. Luckily no one set off the lunk alarm.
At one point the smoke alarm got tripped, but we're not 100% positive it was due to one of our group's farts. There's no real way to track which fart tripped the smoke alarm that we're aware of.
Anyway, this is a serious question. I'd especially like to hear from teh ladies in case this ever comes up at a party.
