Slim Beauty knot

Slim Beauty knot

The "Slim Beauty" has become one of the most popular knots in saltwater fly fishing, due to both its simplicity and its performance. The Slim Beauty allows leader material of different diameters to be connected with minimal fuss and results in a high-strength knot with a very small profile. These qualities have led to it being adopted as a replacement to other classic tippet-to-shock and tippet-to-butt connections like the Albright and the Huffnagle.

Let’s begin a 3D drawing! If you don't have any previous experience with this kind of picture, we suggest you start with the simplest drawings, for example, a circle. When learning to draw in 3D, it’s best to use simple pencils with different grades of lead. If you can, acquire a special kit. Soft lead pencils make a darker and thicker line; hard lead pencils a thinner and lighter line. In addition, when drawing in 3D you must sometimes bear down harder and sometimes more lightly.

Barbell Straight Leg Deadlifts

Barbell Straight Leg Deadlifts

Put your feet slightly narrower, than shoulders width, apart. Take a barbell with pronated grip, a little wider, than shoulders. Straighten your back and thus we take the starting position of the Romanian deadlift. Bend, keeping your plate bones together, move your hips back. The maximum back deflection, including chest and cervical departments should be kept on all trajectory of the movement. The barbell moves strictly vertically, closer to your legs. Don't do any snatches in the lower point! Very important secret of this exercise: lifting the barbell is carried out not by body straightening, but by PUSHING FLOOR BY LEGS. Your back has to be bent in waist. If you can't bend your body completely without rounding your back, then don’t bend too low, or bend your legs stronger.
