    The chest in men takes the most time to grow. Legs are much faster. And you only squat 76kg for reps. Get that up to 140kg and tell me your legs don't look like tree trunks....

    Jump to intermediate

    I was wondering what would happen if I went straight to an intermediate program such as HLM or PPL.

    I've been running an LP for 6 months but feel that my numbers could be greater if I were heavier...

    I gather that people don't take to the press 2.0 . I tried it and wasn't able to lift as much as on the strict press. I also don't like the way it feels. I'm not quite sure why it exists.

    I would go a lot lower on the front squat. And you shouldn't need to worry about rounding there, as it seldom happens.
