    This is a good idea.

    If you can jump up to the top of a pullup position, aim to lower yourself back down as slowly as possible, and then at the bottom, release and then jump up again for the next...

    Thanks to you both! Feels good. Long way ahead to go where I'm aiming but this is a gratifying milestone.

    Saturday, I'll retest the 405 squat, attempt a 185 OHP, and then just for fun, I want to...

    Amen to that

    Not sure why he doesn't post more voluptuous ones. They're the hottest.

    I'd focus on carrying a weight through the full range of motion in good form, as it's much more important than the speed of the execution, IMO.

    No, but I have actually improved my flat bench through a plateau by substituting it with the decline. Something about handing the same weight at all but with the handicap assistance of an easier...

    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...

    I'm surprised that you mention Sowell, OP. Didn't think he was particularly influential outside of conservative intellectual circles in the US.

    Completely agree with Suffolk, but will add that I...

    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...

    Hope you heal up quick BG, and thanks for the encouragement on the deadlift SJT and Filmbuff. Looking forward to the attempt.

    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.
