The Japanese big man is just from a 2007 Japanese movie called "Big Man" (https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0997147/). It's all computer generated movie magic coupled with a comically, simplistic title.

The iso belt interests me, but I have a fear about spinal compression. Many iso belt exercises would put a serious amount of force on the spine, right? Is that force safe for someone like me who has...

It sounds like his progress was slow and difficult (like many of us), but when he reached 34 reps his body became more accepting of volume increases. The key lesson I get from this is to keep trying...

Matt - I do that too sometimes. I'm a fan of a similar workout that I call the Climbing Tiger. It's doing the M7 Tiger Moves while walking up stairs.

Hi Mark
I have had some discomfort before doing Atlas pushups. It definitely wasn't a sharp pain; more of an ache. It could have been an imbalance or mild strain. I eased up on the reps and did...

One more comment on this. Make yourself yawn. Right now. Do it.

For me the high reach is about shoulders, triceps, and upper chest...but especially shoulders. I also like to add a twisting motion at my waist to activate the oblique abdominals a little.

I've had that happen before. Stretching and time helped. DVRs should help too. Just don't cause pain.

A stretch that helped me out was to stand with a wall beside my injured arm. Then walk the...

Very good insight. It takes patience. We hear stories of these guys who went from 20 push-ups to 100 and we want to emulate that, but I personally can't repeatedly add rep after rep. I have to coax...

The wall squats could possibly stengthen your knee so that it's less bothersome. Tiger Bend squats used to bug my knee so I switched to Atlas balance squats for a bit. Later, TBS's didn't bother my...

A couple more ideas: You may want to condition your bare feet if you always wear shoes. They'll be exposed to friction and your feet won't have the arch support they're used to. Also work on balance.

Thanks guys. I think you're right. The isometrics put the force in-line with the spine and under control, rather than at a dangerous angle with shifting amounts of heavy weight.

If you stood on the belt for a static arm curl iso, wouldn't that compress the spine? Your arms are creating force pushing the spine toward the floor. Likewise, in IPR there is a CIC where you sit in...

Tiger Bend Squats used to bug my left knee but Atlas Balance Squats did not so I switched to them exclusively for a couple months, then I tried the TBS's again and the knee felt fine.
