Hobby fitness freak and home workout warrior.

I like to workout very hard. My fitness goals are:

  • have fun in hard workouts :-)
  • build a great looking body (with sixpack and so on... :-))
  • improve the health of my body

I am also interested in biomechanics, exercise science... want to learn some deeper background about exercises, injury prevention etc.

comment Cable pull throughs as alternatives to traditional deadlifts
I am doing pull throughs with heavy resistance bands, which doesn't need much space. The problem with getting barbells is not just the space but also the floor pavement protection...

Sounds interesting. Do you have any references? If I understand you correctly that would mean that if you train for muscle-building and not for powerlifting i.e. using not the heaviest weights, your spine should be safe also without valsalva?

Thanks for the long answer and the links. Your advice concerning deadlift, is it just for the regular one or does it apply also do RDL's, one legged deadlifts, hex-bar deadlifts, straight legged deadlifts and other variants. I guess it should be the case because the spine is not perpendicular to the floor, but I am not sure...
