    In, at least to follow along.

    I also got COVID on the 1st so haven't been to the gym yet this year. Only a low fever for a day and a couple days of fatigue, but some rock scrambling last weekend...

    I'm with Ego. Just don't look/don't pay attention. My brain just automatically tunes out the mirror.

    I'm not sure. Currently both are a bit low since I took some time off. Currently t&g bench is ~5%-10% more than an equivalent set of strict Pendlay row (the only row I've been doing lately)....

    I do a lot of reverse flys. But I definitely never did 2:1 back to front ratio. Maybe I need to add more of those scarecrow and "Y raise" things.

    I usually run a similar program for several months or longer, but it morphs as time goes on and I switch some exercises out, replace some, modify some, etc.
  • Bench Form Check

    The last several months in my previous gym I'd get shoulder pain on bench press. Now it's still there. Even the first time benching back in the gym after 6 or 7 weeks off. Hoping for a form check. I...

    I haven't been posting much and never done the whole "rep" thing much but apparently I "must spread some Reputation around before giving it to bLinkMoore again."

    To be fair, I probably wouldn't lift a sofa or a big stone with legs quite as wide as sumo, but also wouldn't put my arms wider than my feet. I'd put my feet as wide as possible while still being...

    Yeah, idk how much is leverage and how much is movement patterns ingrained from childhood. I do think I have shorter limbs (although I've never figured out how to measure properly, but I even liked...

    1) Sumo, cuz it's the most natural way to lift heavy weight (for me), and I do deadlift to lift heavy weight.
    2) RDL. I don't really like them at all, actually, and have a hard time feeling my...

    Been living in a van for 4 weeks, went to the gym for the first time in a month and a half.
    Signed up for Anytime Fitness remotely, and I was the only person in the gym. No staff even at 10 am.

    I missed a couple weeks. Left to get a Covid test (negative) and never went back until today. I may have had the time, just not the mental energy by the end of the day, and lots to do in the...

    Went to the gym last Monday and got a text from my wife saying a friend we just hung out with tested positive, so I left. Vaccinated, but still. Got tested, negative. Back to the gym on Friday.

    Currently at the gym.

    Took hours to fall asleep, slept in, feeling really blah at the gym, failed 355 squat again, brachioradialis pain coming back.

    Is this what 37 feels like?

    I'm a tad burned out on lifting. Not bad, but really busy with life getting ready to move into a van soon. Will have to have a gym membership, but likely won't have much focus or frequency with...

    Called it, but it was bad.
    Last week, 36 reps at 315.
    Today, starting out, they felt good and I thought I'd get most of them. Then after rep 10 I was really struggling, and failed rep 14. A little...
