Awais Muzaffar posted a topic in StrengthI've been trying for months to push out from a frog-stand to a straight-arm handstand but something (probably a lack of strength in a particular area) is preventing from doing so: Video 1 - I can just about get into a frog-stand and get into a bent-arm stand, but observe my shoulders sink a little but, and I'm literally using all the strength that I have possible to hold my arms at a 90 degree angle. I find this extremly tough to hold. Video 2 - In this one when I try to bring my hips more over my shoulders, I try to push up but fail and crash down. This is on-going and I don't know how to get out of it. I've purchased the foundation course and thinking about starting from Level 2 - I've seen Level 3 has the HeSPU but I'm afraid I'll be stuck on that even after the progressions as something is not clicking about this transition. In terms of general pushing strength here is a dips video. I'm also doing pike push-ups and HSPU (chest-to-wall). I can press a 32kg kettlebell 1-2 reps on each arm. Thanks for reading. Awais
I don't know the specific science of it but I heard that when you've lowered calories for a deficit for a certain amount of time, you can hit a plateau where you stop losing weight/fat. It has to do with leptin levels according to what I've read. I had no idea about this. After a plateau, I ate half of a Little Caesars deep dish pizza (and loved every second) and still lost weight. Apparently the refeed boost leptin levels back up after being lowered on the deficit. It works! With my meal plan from a local company around here, I've been able to lose 10 pounds in less than 2 months. I hit a plateau but the refeed did the trick. That doesn't seem like much, but I have gotten stronger and I don't think I've lost any muscle. Anyway, have fun with your refeed!
