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...

My Strategy - Should this work?

Speaking of Arnold...

I've been watching Pumping Iron on Netflix on and off, I had not seen it until a few months ago. In the movie Arnold puts down just about everything about Lou Ferrigno, his build, posing, preparation, his family. At one point he says "he's like a little child and he looks up to me like I'm his...

Butt Wink

I seem to have got rid of most of my butt wink. Used to be bad. I recently watched this and got some lulz from some of the discussion on internet squatting. In all seriousness I wish I found this years ago. I wound up piecing this together from advice, watching people who could squat. People...

Skullcrusher Pain

In the quest for mass, many people have used skullcrushers as a tricep exercise, only to end up with aching and tender elbows. If you google "skullcrusher pain" you get an idea of just how prevalent it is. After reading numerous posts on a variety of fitness forums, I think it's safe to say that...

Not sure if you guys saw this already, Arnold video on "shocking" the muscle to grow.

Most these days say this is pure bro-science, but I would take what a bodybuilder like Arnold says over "science" any day! Most doctors and science go "against" what bodybuilders preach, from the amount of protien to ingest, to the intake on steroids. But yet they have the body to back up their...
