Sticky Thread Sticky: O35 Official Deadlift Competition Thread

Since we lost the last deadlift competition thread, it's time for a new one. Ideally we can get this stickied, and get some mod reps for the weight class winners. I'll be checking the contest regularly to update standings. Since the thread may last longer than a year, we can declare winners at...

Inner back?

So I tried spider curls for the first time in my life on Friday. Went to failure on all sets. Strange thing is that my inner back has quite the nice soreness going on right now.

Maximum frequency to work out biceps?

I have heard/read mixed things about how often you should work a muscle group. From what I can tell, the majority of advice is to allow 48 hours minimum before working out the same muscles. Some even say once a week should be the max if you are lifting really heavy. Bottom line, I want to...
