Fat Gripz?!?!?!?!?

So I just got a pair of fat gripz and used them for the first time today.

I'm in a strength routine right...

Race to 405 Squat

I've been following some logs where people are making sick fast progress. Feel like I was messing around too much for the past 4 months using too many stupid variants of the powerlifts. Granted my squat went up but the other lifts stalled out after initial gains. Sticking to the basics with close...

Greatest of All Time???

did anyone else make a switch from socks to adipowers on the squat before?

Seems to be harder to push the same numbers comfortably and naturally on the low bar. Depth is easier though. Should i stick with it? 2 weeks so far and it's still awkward.
