90 sec between rounds? So 4:30 + the time it takes to do the exercises?
Greg Everett 2 | 2008-03-03
No, just 3 min +
Dan 3 | 2008-03-03
Duh! Not sure what I was thinking there but thanks.
Danny 4 | 2008-03-03
I am having Deja Vu with this picture. Does Aimee always wrap her thumbs like that?
Aimee 5 | 2008-03-03
I was thinking the same thing!!
HA!
just for the record, for this and all future pictures, i always wrap my thumbs.
they are big and have nowhere else to go.

Aimee, why do you use a belt? What particular use does that have for someone can use the core musculature for IAP reasons?
Troy Archie 7 | 2008-03-04
Is she squating 105 there?
Danny 8 | 2008-03-04
Aimee uses a belt because it matches her purse!
Shawn Thomas 9 | 2008-03-04
greg, need ur brief opinion on low back problems. I have hyperlordosis, which causes bouts of low back pain a couple times a year. I literally can't lift & have to take time off. I am 35 w/ 20 yrs lifting experiance, but seriously might hang up the liftin shoes. I know what I need to do, but looking for other opinions.

sincerely,
shawn
Aimee 10 | 2008-03-04
Troy- I think it is 108. you just can't see the change. I was doing 108 for 5 sets of 5 and hating every minute of it, by the look on my face.

Derek I use the belt because it helps me stabilize while I am in the bottom, and keep my lower back in a good position. Also it helps my breathing (I can push against the belt when I fill my stomach with air).
Unfortunately it is not some magic tool that allows me to lift more.

Danny, kinda like your shoes match your purse?

Greg Everett 11 | 2008-03-04
Derek - Everyone can create some degree of IAP. But no matter how strong you are, a belt will allow greater IAP by reinforcing the muscles that contain the pressure (abs primarily). We try to encourage lifters to use their belts only on their heaviest clean, jerk and squat efforts (like 90% +). The idea that using a belt prevents developing core strength is nonsense if that belt is being used on legitimately heavy efforts (i.e., if you wore a belt around all day long for a month, you'd probably lose some core strength). You also have to keep in mind that Aimee is a weightlifter - Her only concern is snatching and clean & jerking as much weight as possible. The belt has to be viewed within context - if she were a CFer, she wouldn't be using a belt.

Greg,

I apologize in advance if this question has been asked before, but I had a question about the loading during the strength cycle. An example is the 3x5 for push press I had yesterday. Am I supposed to use those five sets to work through heavier weights each set or am I supposed to maintain the same weight for all five sets?

Thanks.
Dreid 13 | 2008-03-04
Ok, I think I found the answer. You are supposed to be at a heavy weight all through the sets, the same weight...right? I'll assume that's what is meant unless I'm corrected.
Greg Everett 14 | 2008-03-04
Dreid - Yes, you're correct.
Robb Wolf 15 | 2008-03-04
Shawn-
I'm guessing some hamstring and hip-flexor tightness...how do you do on the death stretch?
Greg Everett 16 | 2008-03-04
Shawn -

What Robb said. Willing to bet your rectus femoris and iliopsoas are nice and tight. Loosen those up with stretching, back off hip-flexor intensive exercises (e.g. hanging leg raises, knees to elbows, full sit-up variations, etc.) for a while. Also, have you had anyone check it out professionally? Hyperlordosis itself shouldn't cause bouts of pain - make sure you don't have any funny business down there that needs treatment.
