    Humble brag or not, if you can actually do that at your bodyweight, I think some patting yourself on the back is warranted. But come on man... Strength Level, a site which is often taken as an...

    Also, I just realized: isn't it ironic that none of the recent flood of spam posts are about planks? For some reason the memo changed and now it's switched to the occult lol.

    That's going to take forever for me lol... I think I'll just bank on the site staying up and if it doesn't, oh well; it was good while it lasted.



    I also want to throw in my appreciation for...

    On a converging chest press, it seems like you would have to be consciously trying not to tuck your elbows due to flaring being off the path of least resistance. I definitely flare on the bench,...

    Really well said! I agree. I don't personally know any of you either, but we've been kind of "group" for over two years now, so the accountability and encouragement are certainly real to me at least.

    Right, but didn't you just use "stomach" in the previous message?

    Yeah, I'd agree if talking about the actual stomach, but (and I didn't read the entire thread, in case I missed something) "belly...

    Maybe because it's not a problem you have to worry about? xD

    Jk, but I actually intentionally say it instead of stomach, since the stomach is obviously an organ in that general area, but using...

    We can keep this one going or start a new one. Tends to be the same crowd each time.

    I'll actually be in Europe at the beginning of the year so my training will be a bit weird possibly...

    I wasn't referring to leg press. I did heavy barbell back squats and deadlifts and then static holds to depth at bodyweight, then seated calf raise, both of the hip flexor machines, and then the leg...

    I'm going to start taking leg isos more seriously. Yesterday I squatted 4 x 6 at 315 but also burned out the hip ab/adductors (plus calf raises and machine extensions) on those machines. I think...

    Which part of the foot did you elevate? And the era of the clanky metal plates. Wish I belonged to that...



    It seems to put the QL more at risk. So a narrower stance mitigated this problem for...

    Thanks. I was feeling strong and due for a challenging and thorough leg day. (A had people watch my form and one or two of the squat reps were shallow, but otherwise looked good.) Ironically, like I...

    That seems kind of unusual. Do you not appear any softer anywhere else? It could be that you simply store it first in the face, since you've never not been lean apparently and everyone's fat storage...

    You might be surprised! :)
