    I've never done them with any kind of seriousness or consistently as my hangup with the lift is usually breaking mid-knee rather than lockout, but maybe subbing in heavy rack pulls for a couple of...
  • Eating oats as a cold cereal rather than with hot water: any meaningful difference?

    This is probably a stupid question, but I've resolved to eat oats in the morning again on a regular basis. I find that I simply end up eating more and making worse choices later in the day when I...

    Cool, keep going dude.

    I don't think you can do anything about your BMR, but I agree that it's really important to make sure that the approach is steady and sustainable, not extreme. Best of luck...

    Not sure exactly what you mean by "dip down above the waist" since that sounds opposite of each other. Do you have an illustration or form video?

    ^^ That sucks Ego. Sometimes I find that stuff like that fuels some particularly good sets, but when you're ready to go and can't it can also tend to throw everything off.

    I was under the impression that 25-35 is your peak strength decade, and OP is right in the middle of it. Why would you think it's "too late" when you're right in the middle of this window?

    ^^ Wait, so eating a small-medium sized portion of pizza would make you a godless barbarian?

    And for the record, I don't mean eating these things immediately before going and lifting. That would...

    @Adam, I intend to reply seriously and at length to the best of my ability somewhat soon, but that's going to be an even longer and more complicated answer; nor do I presume to know everything, even...

    Are you lifts progressing? I've done tree work with a company all day in the heat before; can't imagine I'd lift worth anything if that was my regular job.

    Yep.

    You might as well expand the post to include "social drinker" to mean "raging alcoholic," while you're at it. ;)

    I'm curious to see your results if you make it to 240. I held that weight pretty well (unfortunately am above it now) but still had some obvious pudge - "powerlifter abs" visible through the fat...

    It's unlikely that they're overdeveloped inherently, but quite possible that you simply haven't built up the rest of your physique for them to look appropriately balanced. What does the rest of your...

    Quite possibly. I imagine that progression would be more difficult managed in such a way, but it might work. In fact, it might actually be better tailored for people who lead busier lives and don't...
