    Haha! Thanks! Girl I go into my "beast mode zone" when I get in there. I think fear is what holds a lot of people back from their full potential. I was terrified of not being able to get those 55's up and it turns out I didn't even need help on the first set (required a little on the second). I have never tried low bar but I'm thinking it would be worse. My problem is my tendency to lean forward. I think having the bar sit lower might make that worse. I'm going to work on some exercises where the weight is held in the FRONT of the body to help "train" myself to stay upright and not go into "good morning mode."

    Well thanks!!! I do think I don't really realize what I look like to other people. Today the girl checking me out at the store said, "You work out a lot don't you?" After getting over my initial surprise I just smiled and replied, "Oh yes, I love lifting weights." She says, "I'm working on getting some 'guns' myself..." ... and she flexed her arm.

    Wow curling the 40s is no easy task. I wouldn't even bother you if you were curling those dbs in the squat rack.
    Current PRs:
    Bench Press: 190x1
    OHP: 105x4
    Deads: 315x1
    Back Squats: 245x1

    The one I use looks something like this. I face forward (towards the machine) on it. I go all the way down as low as the machine allows (till it hits the rubber bumper) so it's a pretty low squat.

    depends how you put it. the rate of muscle gain is the same regardless. but obviously you have to spread the same amount of muscle over a larger surface area so it looks like less than it actually is . . . or 'long and lean' as opposed to 'bulky'. dunno if that's 'better' for BB. a lot of it has to do with your build and bone structure too. you can be tall and proportionately large to go with it. or you can be tall and built like a bird. it's like comparing a mastiff to a whippet.

    BBing is all about illusions. if you take a good look at many competing women (not pro FBBers), you notice they don't have all that much muscle. (only slightly talking out of my arse here.) now, of course they have 'more' muscle than your average non-training woman, but it only looks like a lot because they're so lean. put them in tracksuits and they're stick figures.

    Awesome PRs up in here, Stephanie. You have some crazy upper body strength 180 on the glute machine is insane too. I only ever got up to 120 on that back when I used to do it all the time.

    I see, thanks. I haven't noticed anything like that but there are a few machines I haven't paid attention to so at my gym. I'll take a closer look and see if we have one of those- a variation for when I don't want a barbell on my back for whatever reason would be nice.

    BBing is all about illusions. if you take a good look at many competing women (not pro FBBers), you notice they don't have all that much muscle. (only slightly talking out of my arse here.) now, of course they have 'more' muscle than your average non-training woman, but it only looks like a lot because they're so lean. put them in tracksuits and they're stick figures.

    Haha..yup. I look sickly thin at the end of a cut. I keep thinking, there is a point where you no longer look good in clothes (because nothing fits or hangs right) but look smokin naked
