Thread: the most secret skill in kung fu

  1. #76
    i dont know if doctors explained to u but spinal discs have no blood vessels and the best way to pump nutrients in it is by mechanical action.

    basically u can sell ur inversion table and just do dips and pull ups

    No I'll keep it. I like it a lot. it is doing as I hope it would. Stretch the muscle in a way I am not able to by other methods.

    I should have said, I don't have any spinal damage aside for the bulging disc and arthritis and I have probably and that so long it never bothered me. My injury would be more akin to a whiplash type injury. Soft tissue damage. It limits the types and amounts of stress you can apply. That's what I have found out anyway.
    I don't just hang as a work out ,lol. I just use it to stretch muscle that more than likely tighten up to stabilize for others that got damaged. Read up on whiplash and you may find recovery can take along time. In some cases it does not happen fully. I don't want to be that person.

    Brat, I assume you read about the time I got jumped. One of the guys I was in it with was a bodybuilder. He went pro but never did better than local events really. But man was he strong. He did 500lbs squat, 3 times his senior year. He had the best squat that year. He was also the guy I mentioned was a far better fighter than me. Yeah , he hit hard. He was Isshin Ryu and judo.
    315 BP for 6 reps.
    405 deadlift for 5 reps
    385 squat for 10 reps ( I don't squat heavy do to past knee injuries).

    Nothing near those numbers now since I don't do heavy weights anymore.

    FINALLY ! I knew there had to be someone that hit those bigger numbers. Good job. Were you always strong or just along time to get that? Honestly, at any time I went back to weights on a serious level, 9 months was the longest I stuck to being consistent. My biggest reason for failing I would suggest. I would have loved a bench like that.

    It was something I did because I was trying a powerlifter phase in my strength training routine.
    Those numbers aren't much though, most guys in the gym had bigger number and the steroid guys even more so.
    Honestly, if I had juiced it those would have been warm up numbers, LOL !

    The bench is not a true test of strength IMO, I did it simply because that is what one did.
    You need to understand that big numbers are not the important unless of course a person is trying to get uber-strong.

    General strength training is crucial for a MA IMO, even for everyday people really, I mean, we tend to lift things all the time so why NOT be strong ?

    I've always liked squats more than chest or isolation of a certain group for the shear fact its more weight distributed over body. I haven't lifted heavy now in some years. Still put up good numbers but as every person finds out time starts to be a battle we can't win only postpone. Joints hurt more now, long recovery times, etc.etc.

    i did that starting strength bullsh1t to 240 then my spine disc explode, had no money ate once or twice a day and had to even count the number of meatballs to microwave. then i got some money for food did some bodybuilding body weight went from 130 to 190 pounds, but doing light baby weights. now im googling better program and want to lift heavy again. doing some high rep stuff 200 for 13 rep rite now
    A) I don't practice Hung Gar per se. I practice several things that contribute to my overall well being, strength and pugilistic ability.
    B) We should always work at making our bodies the best we can. This comes and goes with other acivities in our lives, but in our youth, there's no real excuse.

    My senior year in HS i was able to put together

    350 BP 2 reps
    225 BP 48 reps
    640 Squat 8 reps
    750 Deadlift 6 reps

    I lifted twice a day 4 days a week and was a legit D1 football prospect so weightlifting was pretty much my job.

    Another! You guys be proud of your past and present accomplishments. I respect that stuff. It is also stuff most can easily relate to in terms of strength measurement. There is no question what you generated. I know some might take it as bragging but I asked! I wanted to know. Thanks.

    inversion tables are for release of pressure more than anything.

    My brother went through a bout with a bad disc or two.

    His solution as given by his doctor was to consume water before bed.
    Discs absorb water while you sleep and get back to better shape through that, pretty much on their own.

    Otherwise, yeah, if you are a tv watching cheeto eater, best to slowly get into training as opposed to jumping in full blast.
    stuff takes time! lol

    Impatience and unchecked desire causes many training injuries.
    Kung Fu is good for you.
