    I'm confused here. Are the US and IWF agreeing to leave all sanctioning up to national bodies? What is this saying?

    You could always move to a preparation phase type of training. Hit the squats with 8-12 reps or pause squats for 4-6 reps, and do additional leg exercises like lunges, split squats, SN deadlifts,...

    It should be fine as long as aren't using it as a way to increase volume a large amount.

    Should be noted he said "plant-biased" not plant based. I am totally on board with nutritional typing, so people will be different. Generally "you need to eat more veggies" is correct.

    The odd thing about veg/vegan is the idea about it being natural and environmentally responsible. Most products are highly processed, and shipped from all around the world. It typically isn't hard to...

    I doubt it. The state has far more protection. Corporations are more easily investigated, and won't take as much risk. It's one thing if a sponsored athlete gets busted. It's a whole different world...

    Yeah 2010 was the worst. In 2011 Pat had to drop (mostly) the drugs and start competing with the Olympics in mind. That humbled the duo quite significantly, even before the first doping violation. He...

    Good article. One critique I have is that I have always heard it referred to as "Bulgarian split squat". I've never heard anyone call it a lunge.

    Oh, and you need to be ready to edit the part...

    I'm not interested in rehashing in this thread, but it does need to be mentioned that Pat specifically said he wasn't using steroids and that he just worked harder than everyone else. Broz repeatedly...

    I think the bar was already at 180. Whether or not the coaches put 179 too late is something we probably won't know. After Tian missed his first and second snatch, they should have gone way down....

    Lu Xiaojun was amazing coming back from back spasms or whatever it was. The Chinese have looked really rough. I'm not sure what the deal is.

    The theory about avoiding recovery methods only applies during short term heavy loading, but it is for advanced lifters. Generally it is best to do what you can for recovery when it is convenient.

    Being an isometric exercise, I think all relevant muscles and tendons are under significant tension. Training the muscle is not the goal here. The muscle doesn't have to get stronger for collagen...

    Maybe different mental cues? With squat clean you might be focused on technique, and power clean you are trying to get the highest pull which is subconsciously bringing the arms into action? I...

    Yes, I would stop pulls and all that. We are talking about surgery right? Surgery doesn't mean 100% everything is fine you know. Back squats might be ok with a wide grip. Don't do anything risky if...

    Thanks. Look for plain gelatin and take 15 grams and 200-500 mg vitamin C about 45 minutes prior to tendon-specific training. There are also collagen supplements that are becoming more popular, but...

    I have been working on a lot of tendon research lately. Maybe in a few weeks I will have a big post ready.
    I recommend dropping classic lifts altogether. You are facing surgery after all... Tendons...

    Even though it isn't complete, I would count the grams of amino acids as protein. Not that individual aminos should be in high enough quantity to make a significant difference either way.
