    You're right. I tested the waters with just sneakers: bad idea! The bar just wanted to roll off my sole. I had considered making a foot plate as you describe (and might still have to) when I saw a...

    I have two 4x4's that make up the verticals for what's really a half rack. On the backside of the vertical post, I added two 2x6's that run parallel to the 4x4's and are spaced just 1.25" or so from...

    Always. I just finished a ghetto front squat machine :D but I didn't like the way it felt when attempting front squats with it. I might try leg pressing with it, but I'm going to have to add some...

    Looking good, Andrew! Do you ever do chins? I find that I can do ~30-35% more chin-ups than pull-ups.

    Tim,

    Regarding refeeds (and I've used them successfully), I understand that the extra calories should come from carbs. In fact, if you've been eating more protein or fat than necessary (I won't...

    I occasionally am reminded of an exercise that I want to reintroduce after a hiatus, and when I do, I'll go out a few pages in my journal and make a note of that exercise so that I'm reminded of it a...

    You are a BEAST! Would you rate the front squat as one of the most huffingest puffingest exercise that you do? FS's get my heartrate up faster than just about anything . . . and that's with just 5...

    Wow. Super lean I bet!


    Wait. Wut? ;-)


    I did DB step-ups last week with two 50# DBs, and the next day, I thought my mid-section had been used as a punching bag. Good core workout right...

    Do you even attempt to quantify the macros in the chicken because of the breading and oil? If so, how do you do it?

    It took 3 days for accurate weighing to occur. Right? That's what I've found too.

    Don't weigh (100% srs). The scale is simply a device to provide you with feedback: meaningful feedback in my opinion, and unless you just want to see how much water/sodium/undigested-food you can...

    I've read that the reason is because it's a concentric only exercise (no eccentric portion). Rippetoe even wrote about how you must be careful introducing weight training to cyclists, because they...

    far as benching goes, pulling the shoulder blades down and 'tucking' them under you to bench is the right way for a bodybuilder to perform the exercise; that method will call in more pecs, and take...

    I would be that a side-by-side flexed arm photo would show a much more attractive 16.25" lean arm than a 17" less lean one!

    Bill, what's your opinion on retracting your scapula for bench? for chins/pull-ups? It's something that I have never really done, but I'm experimenting with it some on the bench, and I understand...

    I discovered by adding more ice (I'm actually using banana flavored popsicles), I can repeatably get a fluffy batch. Kind of surprising that adding so little extra ice (probably just 1/2 to 3/4 cup...
