    So, I am getting ready to start urbans work out that's at his site.

    I looked up the exercises that I didn't know about. I have questions of the form for some exercises.


    First tate presses:

    this way: http://www.weightliftingdiscussion.com/tatetri.html

    or this way: http://www.bodybuilding.com/fun/exercises.php?Name=Tate+Press

    Next skull crushers:

    this way: http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/1086/20316

    or this way:http://www.2-fit.com/video/sklcrshr.htm

    I have never done deadlifts and need some advice of those and stiff legged ones as well.

    also, I would like to replace good mornings with something else, any suggestions?

    I might as well put this here too. The is an exercise I saw posted her that uses a rope to train your core. I only remember that it was about twisting. I have a rope and a solid foundiation to place it and am looking to try this. Point me in the right direction?

    thanks alot

    Well i don't do DL's regularly since i train at home with dumbells and a sandbag but when doing regular DL's start out with the bar and bend down at the knees and drive up through the heels into the hips until you are locked out. There is alot of info in the stickies and i'm sure if you search around you can find some good info but just be patient...its a holiday weekend and some guys use their work computer i think to post here...

    Deadlifts - Here's an article by Dave Tate that should really help you understand deadlifting technique, I keep coming back to this article and realising more things I can correct
    http://www.t-nation.com/readTopic.do?id=459744

    The core exercise you're referring to is probably this one:

    Just start light on the deads until you feel comfortable with the lift. Once you get the hang of deadlifting you'll love to pull.

    True, the thing that I did to get the hang of it was to pull 10 singles in rapid succesion, basically this becomes a set but you stand up between each rep having let go of the bar. This avoids your form deteriorating through the set. I started out doing three sets at 145lbs. Then started dropping down the reps once I got past 220.

    Have you tried locusts instead of good mornings?
    The core exercise with the rope I do love.

    take it easy with the skullcrushers if you got sore elbows. Especially if your strong in triceps and can handle a lot of weight...

    For deads, keep your back straight, bas as close to the body as possible. If I'd replace GM,s I'd do glute ham raises or reverse hypers

    Why would you want to replace Good Mornings?? in my opinion its one of the best exercises. done properly it will work your entire posterior chain.
