Commented on: Dietary Treatment of Diabetes Mellitus in the Pre-Insulin Era

- [ ] I'm here to testify about the great work Dr Osebor did for me. I have been suffering from (HERPES) disease


for the past 5 years and had constant pain, especially in my knees. During the first year,I had faith in God that i


would be healed someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and i have been taking treatment from my


doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of one lady on the internet testifying about a Man called Dr Osebor


on how he cured her from HIV Virus. And she also gave the email address of this man and advise anybody to contact


Dr Osebor for help for any kind of sickness that he would be of help, so I emailed him on


( oseborwinbacktemple@gmail.com ) telling him about my (HERPES Virus) he told me not to worry that i was going to


be cured!! Well i never believed it,, well after all the procedures and remedy given to me by this man few weeks


later i started experiencing changes all over me as Dr Osebor assured me that i will be cured,after some time i


went to my doctor to confirmed if i have be finally healed behold it was TRUE, So 

- [ ] friends my advise is if you


have such sickness or any other at all you can contact Dr Osebor via email. { oseborwinbacktemple@gmail.com }or


call or what sapp him on( +2348073245515 )

- [ ] DR osebor CAN AS WELL CURE THE FOLLOWING DISEASE:-

- [ ]  HIV/AIDS

-


[ ]  HERPES

- [ ] CANCER

- [ ] ALS

- [ ] cancer 

- [ ] Diabetes

Used knee sleeves on my elbows, not knees!

Bar to thighs and hips below knees each rep.

Fun stuff!


Didn’t rest a lot, didn’t time rest either. Took maybe 25 minutes for 10 sets, 11-12m for the first 6 sets.


Did only 20m slips and 10-4-3-2 rep build up sets.


SLiPs warmup:

for slips I did about 4m of each movement:

:20 back scale into

:20 front scale lifting standing leg

:20 rest (2x each side)

:10 L-sit on floor, :20 rest x 6 rounds

5 rounds of :20 free HS attempts/rest :20

2 rounds of :20 wall facing hs, :20 rest, :20 back to wall hs, :20 rest

3 rounds each arm alternating arms: :20 side plank /:20 rest

foam roll t spine, foam roll adductors, calves

So the limiting factor on this one is how much pain you can manage in your elbow?

Throughly did not enjoy this one bit, the squat itself felt easy but the distracting shooting pain in your arms made it hard to focus on anything else. Maybe that’s the intended stimulus haha. First time doing these.

First time with Zercher squat.  Wow, my arms hurt!  But legs felt pretty strong on this – wasn’t sure what to expect so started a bit lighter, but had no problem getting out of the hole even at the heavier weights.  Did SLIPS in between sets.

I've never seen these before, so I started very low to get the motion, and worked up to just kind of low-medium:


5 reps at 45-65-85-95 lbs

3 reps at 105-110-115-115 lbs

2 reps at 120-125 lbs


I concur it is an excellent squat movement, but is the agony in the elbow notch a bug, or a feature??? If not for that, I am sure I could have gone much heavier. I'm not looking forward to the bruise marks tomorrow.

WOD ANALYSIS


Coaching notes:

What is the zercher squat? It’s essentially just a regular squat, except instead of the bar being positioned on your traps for a back squat, or clavicles for a front squat, the bar is placed in the crook of elbows. Due to the unique positioning of the barbell, it is one of the best full body exercises you can perform with a barbell.


Template: This WOD follows both “For Completion” and “As Heavy As Possible” template. For completion is for SLIPS (stands for Scales, L-sits, Inversions, Planks and Stretching) and AHAP is for zercher squat.


Modality: In fact, This WOD combined two single modality WODs in one, cleverly. The first combination is low intensity SLIPS from gymnastic modality and the second combination is a heavy complex movement from weightlifting modality.


Purpose: The purpose of the exercise is to perform the zercher squat with heaviest resistance. This WOD is challenged both upper and lower muscles. In this day, recovery has not been a limiting factor. The amount of resistance should be progressively increased per set to reach the athlete’s 2RM. Athletes can strive to maximize their maximum strength in this exercise.


The reason for choosing reps: The movement set as 10 sets of 2 reps. The reps selected so that challenge the strength. If athletes do not have a good rest between sets, their record will drop from set 4 onwards.


Note: The trainer should observe the techniques of movements during the exercise and correct any mistakes at rest.


Time to perform: This high volume and heavy WOD takes about ≈ 50 min. In the SLIP part, athletes practice for 20 min, without recording. However, Athletes must strive to do their best for perform zercher squat and should rest at least 3 minutes between sets.


Running a class: Trainers just have ≈ 10 min for set other parts of class.


Physiology (GPP): Strength plays the major role in this exercise. Furthermore, muscular endurance, mobility, balance and coordination are challenged in first part of WOD.


Physiology (energy pathway): The phosphagen system is the dominant energy pathway in this exercise program.


Anatomy:

Zercher squat: Agonist: Gluteus maximus, Quadriceps, Latissimus dorsi, Erector spinae, Biceps (isometric contraction).

Synergist: Hamstring, Gastrocnemius, Soleus, Core muscles.

_____________________________________


Running a 60 min class:

Whiteboard ≈ 2 min

SLIPS (warm up) ≈ 20 min

Specific warm-up for zercher squat: ≈ 3 min

WOD ≈ 30 min

Cool-down ≈ 5 min


You can see my other analysis in my instagram page.

Train hard and challenge your body. Enjoy it ;)

GOOD LUCK

Globo Scale: If using irons use a squat rack. Dumbbell sub do increasing weight goblet squats if you have a full rack of DB's, or if you have heavy kettlebells, use those. If you max the available dumbbells/kettlebells do AMRAP sets.

Champions Club Scaling Notes


RANT

While I probably won't do this with most of our athletes, I think there is a lot of value to this movement. It adds a different demand to your midline than a front squat, and can also be a substitute for people who don't have the mobility for rack position. If you have someone who is consistent with you, or if you have been consistent for the last few months, then go for it. If not, then might be better off spending time on a squatting variation that comes up more often. Time in the weight room is precious.


WHAT ABOUT THE MOVEMENT

Zercher squat - squatting, upright torso, minimal demand on shoulders, gimmick movement


WHAT ABOUT THE FORMAT

Max effort day - do a set of heavy weight then rest 2-3 minutes before doing the next one. It is assumed that you can work up to a weight that is heavy enough to warrant 2 reps being enough, so if you can't then adjust.


TECHNIQUE SCALE

As is, switch to front squat, make reps 10+ each set


CONSISTENCY SCALE

Same as technique scale


INTENSITY SCALE

10 rounds of:

5-10 heavy(ash) front squats then 1:00 plank

Rest as needed between sets


MY STUFF

Actually did a different workout today. Will hit this one soon.


GENERAL FEAR LEVEL: 3
