    Yeah this is a pretty common type of thing to do. I find it works better for exercises that use less weight. Bench and leg press wouldn't work so well cause you'll be so tired or out of breath from...

    Squat - started with singles yesterday. Got 2 singles at 355. Getting back up there. Surprised at how well this low frequency is getting my numbers back up. Also 335x2, 325x3, 315x4, 305x5. Dumbbell...

    I don't see a point in purposely pausing if you feel tight everywhere. I've never really understood the term "pulling out the slack", because the slack has to get pulled out no matter what you do....

    Idk what your split is.

    I try and get at least 15-20 reps on a couple main lifts, and 2 sets on couple accessories. The main lifts could be 3 singles, 3 doubles, a set of 5, and a set of 8. The...

    I sometimes like to pause just off the floor doing deadlifts on the way up and down. Idk if it helps, just trying to lock a good position into my brain.

    I spent 14 months building it out so it's like a tiny apartment on wheels. People always wonder about the toilet situation lol. I use a homemade "dry toilet", which means I have a toilet seat with...

    I'm guessing most people on a bodybuilding forum are a bit less casual than most gym-goers.

    I work out in the morning. Best when I'm not sick of working all day and just wanting to relax. Coffee and cereal for fuel.
    A normal time to wake up is 8 AM, but I'll go as early as 6:30 if my wife...

    I pause on squats at the top to get another breath. I pause on deadlifts at the bottom cuz it's easier to reset and get a breath.
    I don't pause or breath during bench unless I'm over 5 reps, but...
  • I wonder the same thing. It doesn't bother me,...

    I wonder the same thing. It doesn't bother me, but it does confuse me. When I see another guy or girl with a log book I notice because it's so rare.

    keeping a log takes maybe 20 seconds extra...

    When's the last time you changed rep range?

    Also, it was a couple years ago, but I added a good bit of weight after a couple months of 10x10, then working my way back up with low reps.

    Right...

    I use Cobra Grips ever since I dislocated a finger and my grip went to ****. I put them on when my grip gives out, could be top single or reps. Some days better than others. But they give good grip...

    Gaining or losing a pound isn't comparable to a new 1RM. Gaining a lb takes 2 weeks, losing a lb takes 5 days. 1RM are few and far between. Gaining 1 lb of lean mass maybe more comparable.

    30 lbs starting from what baseline? It's gonna be different for a 6'-2" scrawny dude and a 5'-8" guy with more natural muscle already. The second guy will have a hard time ever adding 30 lbs lean...

    I guess I'm in the opposite camp as a lot of y'all. I've never had any desire to be big. It always just confuses me when guys wanna be big. That's my bro and he's compensating for being a scrawny...

    Oooh conventional. Idk if I could get 3 conventional. Haven't lifted conventional in a long time, prob over a year. I stick with sumo for strength lift and RDL for hamstrings.

    315 was like 22 or...

    To be fair, RDL has the hamstring stretched at the knee, but I seem to recall I read somewhere that it's best to have the hamstring in the short position at the hip when doing leg curls (such as GHR,...

    You feel it better with higher reps, as usual. It will work the chest, but I also think you'll never feel it like with cable flys or the machine flys. There's just not much resistance at peak...

    I prefer lying to seated. Just feels weird to me to have the hamstring stretched while doing curls. Lying feels intense provided you keep your ass squeezed tight. Oh, and of course I mean lying with...
