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...

Who uses the TRX?

It seems like a lot of people and athletes are using this innovative piece of equipment. I thinks it's a good piece, but it's not going to replace the weight room. I feel it needs to be added for extra body stabilization, rotator work, and unilateral work but not for strength and power. Thats were...

I'm conflicted with whether I should have the surgery, and I figured why not ask those who have choose to have it done (or not). I tore my right ACL (partial) roughly 24 years ago, and my left one (complete) about 6 years ago. I have instability issues with my right knee, I would reinjury it...

So, I recently invested in some commercial gear for my home gym, a Maxicam hack squat and Legend Fitness 918 leg extension, to go with my usual 45 degree leg press, squats etc. Due to my busy season, it was my first real workout on legs since acquiring the gear, and I couldn't help myself. I...
