I lift, train combat sports, and am interested in any physical or outdoor culture.

comment Correct shoulder position when doing hanging leg raises
What aspect of the shoulder position do you mean? It's a bit tough to see in the picture.

comment Deadlift - belt or no belt?
@MikeS If you expand that (or add any source to back it up) it could make a good answer.

There's a couple different questions here. I think the part about belts needs to be separated from the part about posture and the part about why we deadlift.

How long have you been on this plan?

@TaylorKimmel Whether or not it's too much depends on whether you're recovering. Some months I can train six days a week, other months I can't. It depends on food and sleep and other recovery factors like stress. That's what I meant by my first paragraph--if you're getting stronger and able to train, it's working. If not then you may have to cut back.

Also--I've seen 5x5 and 6x6 hailed as great recipes for getting bigger...if you lift three times a week, don't do cardio, and eat a ton. But I bet 3x3 or 4x4 plus six days a week of cardio won't get you too big.

Don't you have martial arts classes to take up your energy? Or could you do barbell complexes or another form of strength- or power-biased conditioning on non-lifting days?

@YYY Using lots of weight requires more strength, whereas less weight for more reps requires more strength-endurance and will produce more hypertrophy, no? I generally base my training off the rep range chart in this answer, but if there's another factor here I'd be interested. 5x5 with sufficient food and a lack of 5 days of cardio is a recipe for growth, yes, but 3x5 or 3x3 with non-maximal food intake and 5 days of cardio won't make someone bigger...

@YYY That's not my understanding. Size hypertrophy doesn't start until four to six reps minimum. One to five reps can increase strength with minimal increases in size or weight.

comment What are the ball bearings in dumbbells and barbells for?
@Informaficker When doing exercises that rotate the bar (cleans, snatches), you most certainly don't want to be working your grip at the same time. If you're going to buy equipment, a bar is the place to spend good money.
