    I don't and that's the point- I want to get out of accountancy and into corporate finance/IB/equity research/asset management. Do you have any idea how dull accountancy is?

    I train for Olympic weightlifting, though not at a competitive level of any sort.

    Yeah, I find that the constant heavy squatting and pulling (albeit with lighter weights) of Olympic weightlifting really do help the deadlift. My max was about 200kg when I started doing more heavy...

    Snatch grip deadlift to back squat ratio

    I was wondering what is everybody's snatch grip deadlift to back squat ratio? Are you squatting more or snatch grip pulling more? As these lifts involve many of the same muscles, I believe that its a...

    The spotter's arms (his dad btw) are indeed on him but it doesn't seem like he's exerting that much effort. Plus when you've got 320kg on your back, the effect is probably more psychological than...

    I don't agree with this tip. Thats how powerlifters squat and thats fair enough but for most average people that will feel like a very unnatural movement.
