    Good to know. I wasn't trying to be a debbie-downer or a moaning-minnie about your idea. Whenever I do this it feels like my hammies are going to explode. I'm not sure it would train me to lift a...

    Just put some 2.5 lb plates under your toes. Classic Arnold-era move for emphasizing what was back then referred to as glutes and hammies. No need for some crazy piece of equipment based on...

    It just depends on your build. I know people who sumo pull 200 lbs more than they squat.

    It's a good deadlift, but there are many freak deadlifters out there. I am not a freak, but pulled similar numbers to you at the beginning: pulled 275x5 the first time I tried heavy DLs, then 315x5...

    The gym is the perfect place for egos and raging to run rampant. It doesn’t matter how right you are, you will always lose an argument with the gym owner. I’ve seen it happen a million times. I once...

    Congrats on the kid on the way!

    I have a garage gym now, but I've been wimping out because of the cold and driving to the gym as of late. I love it in the summer, though.

    I like the minis,...

    Well, as long as you're healthy and lifting that's a plus! My sig shows I've pushed my numbers up a bit since my journaling days, but some recent health problems and hectic school schedule have cut...

    Actually, I think our discussion was sufficiently random... it probably wouldn't ruin the movie too much. Most trailers these days reveal the entire movie, and I don't feel the convo above revealed...

    Haha. My apologies. It's a good movie.

    True, I suppose I had to switch from wrapped to unwrapped several times before it didn't throw me when coming back to it.

    Interesting responses--I've always been surprised at how some people respond so well to things that haven't worked for me.

    Overloading (just board press) has always really helped my bench but I...

    I'd go wrapped for a while then. I've had similar pain in the past, and ever since I started wrapping it completely disappeared.

    Interesting. To be fair, my input was from reverse band benching....

    All raw competitions I've done check under the singlet for supportive gear when any kind of record is set. Nothing wrong with that!

    I'd go for wraps, but I guess it depends on what you're using it for. Reverse bands just stabilizes the bar too much, so while you are having more weight, you're kind of defeating the purpose of...

    No, obviously I understand Mann gave the signal so someone would pick him up. He just wimped out far too quickly / easily for someone who would have committed to such a bleak mission. It's not that...

    Good to see you back! I haven't journaled in a long time, and haven't posted much, but I'll have to stop by! I miss those old journal days.

    Looks like your strength isn't down by too much. You're...

    I'm a fan of Nolan, and let me say I enjoyed Interstellar. I'm also a fan of picking things apart, so let me bring up a few issues.

    Yikes.

    I like sugar or carbs + a cup of coffee.

    I never eat candy, and one time I decided to eat a King Size Butterfinger right before lifting. My blood sugar was not prepared. I felt like I...
