Not really, it's very common sprint training technique. 25 years ago when I played Rugby we used to do it. These days the rigs are a lot better than a rope tied around your waste and on to the wheel, they have full chest harnesses and a weighted 'sled' behind you or even chest harnesses with small parachute/wind-drags. Soccer, NFL guys and other field athletes all use that technique.

 

You may look somewhat ghetto though, I'll grant you that!

Anyone do that shit when you are working to failure on chest, whether it be bench, flyers, whatever on a medium weight and try and get those last 2-3 out. When you're hitting failure you start pushing your shoulder forward, dropping your form and then you're shoulder is fucked for the next week?

 

I do and I wish I fucking wouldn't.

i usually just stop when i see my form is fucking up.

Anyone ever do an obstacle race? I'm doing one on saturday. It's called the warrior dash, seems like a lot of fun and it's pretty intense too i think! I'm excited about it!

Did some hill training today in the really humid weather, really beats you up!

Did lot's of obs course stuff in the army. Make sure you do heaps of upper body shit like rope climbing, burpees, crawling, fast-paced circuit training as that's the stuff you're prob not used to and that will tire you out quickly.

Hop in and do dolphin kick on your back, that will straighten you out without working your shoulders.

Do you have shoulder injuries from the past?

 

If not, you are def benching improperly and need to correct it.

Your shoulder joints should not be taking the brunt of the load while benching.

Both, actually.

 

Yeah, I have a bad habit of extending my left shoulder forward as I'm working to failure and it screws my anterior rotator (think that's the correct term). I also do a lot of MTB where I stomp a single speed up some hilly gnarred out trails and lean too heavily on my bars. That means as I sway the bike side to side with each pedal stroke I have a fair bit of weight on my shoulders, the active shoulder dips down as my arm extends out laterally in a weak and vulnerable position. That means my shoulder extends as the weight is on it and if I hit a rock or tree root as my weight is forward and on my shoulders that are extended...., ouch.

 

I've also hit a tree and had on shoulder reconstructed, played rugby for half my life and spent years in the infantry. So yeah, most of my body is cactus and just looking for excuses to fall apart. I'm in the early 40s now and I think my last shot at lifting big has been and gone. This time around I'm focusing on mid weight, mid-high reps and form. Just the form/discipline bit is the hard one.
