    My personal take is that this follows something of an 80/20 rule. The good majority of the time, full range of motion work should be primary and confers the most benefit, but for isometry and also...

    Thanks for the feedback and encouragement. It probably was at least a little high (though, looking at the vertical distance in 2D between the safety racks, which are parallel, the perception is still...

    Those are some very impressive numbers!

    It took me a long time to learn how to engage my legs properly in the conventional, and I too would always default to a straight-legged pull, so as far as...

    I'm not disagreeing with your point about how the name of God is invoked superficially amid what is unfathomably complex and vast, but if our brain is incapable of meaningfully asking these...

    I don't have any kind of specific target but probably end up drinking half a gallon a day, or so. Usually I drink all or most of it in one instance.

    Thanks guys - the lift felt great. Can't wait to attempt 505 next week.

    You guys are both at a higher level than me, but I've also been surprised that...

    Honestly, I typically do. I'm not trying to be pedantic or anything, and were I trying to signal some kind of superiority in this way, wouldn't admit in my answer that I spent more time reading when...

    Yeah, I don't know how much of it has to do with compensation for obesity (though I'm not denying that trend, as far as it goes), but I do think most of this is a simple function of living in the...

    What would you personally define as healthy and balanced, given the various physique and fitness goals out there? It seems that that would entail avoiding either of conspicuous extremes which satisfy...

    There is to my mind a clear, meaningful difference between a mere superfluous use of pedantic verbosity to signal some kind of elitism, on the one hand, and an actual fine edge of meaning achievable...

    It's easier than the free barbell, has several failsafes along its path and requires no stabilization. Depending on your circumstance and goals, that can be a good or bad thing.

    I think red meat is the ideal food for this situation, personally, but also have never had the problem of struggling to eat enough volitionally.

    You did those primarily or as an auxiliary variation for a max conventional pull?

    The conventional deadlift is more fun, too, I think. Something has always struck me as a little awkward about the sumo variation. Maybe just to see how much easier it is, I'll switch to it briefly,...
