    I haven't been able to put my seatbelt on with one hand for a few years now, and I weigh about the same as you over half a foot taller. Without pics or anything like your strength level it would be...

    This is a completely serious response, but I think this is mostly a matter of getting stronger. I felt the same way for a long time, but by the time I was pressing 225 for reps, I started to notice...

    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 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.
