    Er- not really but-
    I have been doing sumo squats lately but I seemed to have reached the heaviest dumbbell available (90 lbs.) I was wondering if there is an alternative to this exercise or a successful way to add more weight.

    Your gym only has dumbbells up to 90lbs?
    Hmmmm. I think I saw 135ish at my LA Fitness. I wouldn't use them any time in the near future, but I remember seeing it.

    My best answer would be popping up your shift key with a pen or spoon and cleaning the key itself and the pad it rests upon. Sometimes food or other particles and get in the way and cause keys to become stuck down once pressed.

    Interested to know more about the Sumo Squats, too lazy to look them up. Maybe I will in the morning.

    Oh yeah...
    Sorry about that. I love to take sleeping pills because they tend to make me 'happy' and clear my mind for a few minutes. Your mind just clears up and ideals for solutions start to pour in. (I was focused on something else.)

    Yeah only 90lbs. Small gym.

    Use a dumbbell in each hand or a barbell.

    Make sure you avoid rounding your back, keep your chest up, and butt low. The guy with the dumbbell looks slightly rounded. I used to love doing deadlifts - traditional stance not sumo though

    Where is this gym at? They oughta have some really good deals. Especially during the rainy season. Parking is probably a bitch though.

    You don't need a huge fancy gym (with waterfalls in the lobby) to have a good workout with free-weights. I don't like that most gyms are cutting back on free-weights in favor of sectionalized/isolation machines.

    Aren't those belt/short things they wear not suppose to be washed and passed down from trainer to trainee or something like that over the generations?

    It's called a mawashi, and no.
