Softer? Yes. Less vascular? Yes. Happy about those things? Nope. Weigh more? Fuck yes. But my max isn’t 85x1 anymore it’s 95x1. And I have a taper. I’m happy about those things. And improvement season isn’t just numbers (on the scale, on the bar), it’s waking up and feeling okay in this body. It’s learning to appreciate this body. It’s treating it a little, or a lotta, better. #mentalgains#tistheseason

L5-S1 Spinal Decompression Stretch [ELDOA]
☝️ELDOAs were created by Guy Voyer a French Osteopath and are postural self-normalizing techniques designed for widening the space within a chosen articulation! This is accomplished by creating fascial tension to fix the vertebra below and contraction in extreme range to normalize the vertebra above the targeted disc
Here's how to perform the ELDOA for L5-S1!
1️⃣ Start by bringing your SITS bones (butt bones) onto the wall!
2️⃣ Feet will be hips width apart and rotate your legs, so feet are pointing inwards!
3️⃣ Spread the toes and flex your foot down (so feet will be point in and down)
4️⃣ Tuck your chin and without lifting your head look between your thighs!
🕷I call this next part "Do the Spiderman!"
5️⃣ One arm at a time you're going to push your palms towards the ceiling!
6️⃣ Now, one arm at a time bring your arms overhead, so your biceps are by your ear (maintaining those spiderman fingers)
Nice work getting into this position BUT now we need to actively be pushing our body parts in certain directions! Just read below to see where the line of drive is coming from!
💥 Heels are going ⬆️
💥 Tailbone towards the wall
💥 Low back down to the floor ⬇️
💥 Hands back behind you
🚨 Now hold this position for 1 minute! If you can't, don't worry we can always work our way up to a minute!
PR Time!!! 230kg/506lbs for a set of 7!! 💪🏼🔥
I have seriously never felt this strong before! Today I had a mission to destroy squats... And i did just that! Bodyweight is currently around 94kg/206lbs so this is the strongest I've been lb for lb! Let's get it!

For every lifter I convert from conventional deadlift to sumo Japan Sumo Association pays me $300. Omar Isuf @omarisuf, did you like it? /// Федерация сумо Японии платит мне $300 за каждого спортсмена, переведенного из классики в сумо.
