    Agreed with what has already been said. Not sure if these would apply to you, but other things that can contribute to a wobbly bench include too narrow a grip or having your feet up on the bench vs...

    Never seen any advice about purposely bending wrists during deadlift, I'd be wary of it. My first thought is if I were rolling my upturned hand up, I'd worry at some point I'd start bending the rest...

    Apples and oranges. The numbers in your poll are way high though. Also, your ratios are going to be completely different as a beginner than as someone who has been training for a longer period of...

    I knew my weight gain had gone bad the day it shoved a little old lady in front of a bus.

    About 25 minute drive in great traffic, it only goes up from there. There are probably a dozen gyms closer to me, several of which I have belonged to in the past. This gym is worth it to me though,...

    May submit entry, depends on if I pull something decent at meet in 10 days :p

    Not a fan of breaking up just by age either. I mean I guess I could see keeping the weight classes and adding one...

    Agreed to make sure you're stretching your ankles. I can stretch out my legs and hips and warm up until I'm blue in the face, but if my ankles are tight they pretty much cancel out everything else. ...

    Along these lines... I was startled at the last show I attended when one of the two ladies who came out for the women's BB division was substantially overweight. I don't mean her conditioning was...

    Absolutely. I would say it's the only division that a woman could come in appropriately muscled for within a year.

    The only way to get more confident at squatting in an actual squat rack is to squat in an actual squat rack. Repeatedly. It sounds to me like she's very insecure about being a beginner, and she's...

    And then there's the people who are actually in great shape, but eat / drink / bloat like crazy for the before pic. This seems like a good time to post this video...

    Are they like that for everyone? I figured it was just tight because I have chunky monkey thighs :D

    If you ever want a laugh, go to a powerlifting competition and watch all the women go to the bathroom before deadlifts (or between every deadlift attempt, in some cases). No reason, of course.

    Dropped down into the 140's last year and felt like I'd wasted away into nothingness. I've been hiding out north of 170 since then. But my arms and back look great.

    :p :D

    As others mentioned, a wrestling singlet is fine. And yes, those do come in a women's cut. I got a basic women's cut singlet from here, and it's not a bad fit at all....

    Nothing personal, but if you don't at least put on a pair of shorts, I'm not using the bench after you.
