    lol, about 2-3 people know what im doing. the rest just mind their own business...if they really wanted to know/care, they'd prob ask.


    i just started that routine today too after a 3.5 day rest. first day got me fucked up bad...some reason my right shoulder is killing me:o

    don't worry about it. 90% of the people in most gyms don't have a fucking clue what they are doing.

    I only started them this week and really liked them. I did notice though that I could rep around 200 but as soon as I went up to 225 my form was all over the place like a mad woman's shit so I cut it back till I pin the movement.

    BTW someone posted a vid of a guy doing a 4 plate GM this week, anyone have the link by any chance?

    "I have a very good friend, who will remain nameless, that gave me another tidbit of advice. He's been instrumental in helping me train legs. I've never pushed myself so hard. So when he gives advice, I know it's coming from a reliable source that's much better then any scientific study."

    haha.

    Not once have I seen anyone do GMs in real life. I get wierd look when I do them. You can feel them hitting your hams.

    If you're doing them wrong then get some advice or watch a vid and analyse the movements. That or go see a doctor. Common sense = rare sense sometimes :hsugh:

    Those of you with back pain from GMs are probably letting your backs arch forward. Keep your spine arched like you're trying to throw your chest out, then do the motion.
