furius: Big thighs :D I have a relatively small waistline and 70cm thighs so it's pretty damn hard to find fitting pants. Thank god for stretch jeans. Apr 3, 2014 18:18:27 GMT
hoss91: Hey guys, I have yet another question for squats. It's the whole flexing the core and breathing thing. What I do I take a big breath of air, and then I flex my abs. However, all the videos I see, people just take a big breath of air and don't flex their Apr 4, 2014 23:18:44 GMT
hoss91: abs. Am I doing it wrong or something? Apr 4, 2014 23:19:05 GMT
Soc: How do you know whether they are contracting their abs or not? Apr 5, 2014 1:28:02 GMT
Japadi: Hoss, you should be contracting your whole core. You're not supposed to be contracting your abs like you would while doing a crunch. You should be contracting your deep ab muscles. Imagine turning your core into a tree trunk. Apr 5, 2014 9:50:57 GMT
Japadi: Personally I've found ab roll outs to have the most carry over into core stability. Apr 5, 2014 9:51:52 GMT
hoss91: How do I know when I'm contracting my whole core? Apr 5, 2014 22:16:55 GMT
bergstromrapz: Does it feel right? Keep going. What people is doing is not your thing and most people dont get most things wrong. Post vid if u want to know what YOU need to work on. Apr 6, 2014 15:36:28 GMT
bergstromrapz: Furious: i hear u, i always wear loose pants so i dont have a problem with lower body size though :P Apr 6, 2014 15:37:03 GMT
furius: I would too but that's not an option at work :D I wear regular black military pants at work and I kind of look like a nazi officer due to my quads. Apr 7, 2014 4:56:16 GMT
bergstromrapz: What is your work?? :P Apr 7, 2014 9:26:32 GMT
hoss91: Okay thanks. There was a member named Polished from the old AskScooby forums. Is he still here on these forums? Under a different name? Apr 7, 2014 20:24:42 GMT
hoss91: Hey guys. Whenever I squat, my right quad hurts 2 inches above the knee. Even when I do just air squats it aggravates it. I drive through my heels, and my shins do not come forward that much, if at all. Any suggestions? I'll have some videos in 2 weeks. Apr 11, 2014 0:02:35 GMT
hoss91: This right quad pain has been bothering me for a while. I figured I would get some feedback. I don't know why I have so much difficulty with squats.... Maybe I'm retarded. Apr 11, 2014 0:03:11 GMT
Soc: Impossible to disgnose over the internet. Just start stretching your quads daily, 3-4 times even, and if it persists, look into a cheap knee sleeve. Apr 11, 2014 14:06:09 GMT
bergstromrapz: Tightness, workload, technique, posture, it could be anything... Massage, then stretch. Upload videos more frequent and not 2 weeks after a problem appears. Apr 12, 2014 9:14:37 GMT
hoss91: Sorry, it's the only time I can get a gym buddy :(. And my normal gym doesn't allow filming whatsoever :( Apr 12, 2014 12:59:07 GMT
bergstromrapz: U dont need a friend to hold the canera, put in on a bench and use the water bottle for support. Im sure u can get away with filming at some time, rules are breakable :) Apr 12, 2014 18:31:26 GMT
Soc: I film using my fatgrip to hold up my camera. you dont need someone to hold your camera, especially as the usually film from shitty angles and move around during the set Apr 13, 2014 2:11:13 GMT
