Matt, Niki & Andrew answer your lifting & life questions.
Topics include best pants, jeans, & shorts (for men & women
lifters), forearm pain from lifting, what to do between sets, and
best song to rally at a dance party.
1:20 What to Do if Can't Press Standard Bar?
- aluminum bars are worth it--can use it for accessory lifts
3:01 What Should I Do Between Sets?
- should I sit, stand, pace, clean up, etc.?
- timer can help
- good to not take your mind away from lifting (unless you're
uniquely able to focus quickly)
- can also see (like Matt & his wife have recently) how short you
can make the rests & the workout, in general
6:16 Good Jeans for People with Thick Thighs
- Michael Kohr's khaki (Andrew)
- American Eagle makes good jeans for guys (not slim cut)
- get jeans and then get them tailored

11:09 Best Everyday Shorts (Non-Training)
- have to be SHORT
- Bird Dog's
- plus, how do you FEEL after you eat food (not during, but
- plus, Krispy Kreme donuts
- what does a short do? show the difference between waist & butt,
butt & hamstrings
17:33 Forearm Soreness?
- probably resisting the bar on your squats
- need to carry the weight on the back
- cue: point fingernails to the floor
- cue: carry the bar on your back
- really squeeze shoulder blades together to: relax your grip on
- could be bending your elbows on the deadlift
18:54 Donnie Thompson's Bowtie for Shoulder Pain?
- would not recommend it for the bench press
- puts you in "good posture"
- would recommend not lifting in one
- don't want you to be yanked into position

- ONLY for serious athlete
