    Question for the PL family.

    My squats have gotten way better since I learned a belt. My deads feel off when I add in the belt. In the long run would it be better to learn to pull with a belt even though in the short term I would have settle for lighter singles for a while?

    Yea, true. Just saying its an option if I really needed it. But yea, I'd rather save that money to open up a gym with Stig. The money would be wasted either way but it should be more interesting this way lol.

    Unless you're KK, your beltless lifts will hit a plateau way before belted, might as well throw belt work in for reps and some singles occasionally till you find a good placement that works for you honestly.

And if that doesn't happen, my friend is a professor at FAU and is buying a bunch of powerlifting equipment for research and hopefully a powerlifting team. So even if I'm not so happy at work, I would have a bunch of friends to hang out with, a team to train with, and parents could come see me whenever.

    Yeap. He also has an open offer for me to come get a master's in exercise science under him if I want to change my career from engineering to some thing else. I was considering it before I moved out here for this job and I'm considering it again now.

    I can do 185 for 8 now, never tried to go heavier than that because I normally press after benching and just use it for accessory work.
    best lifts
    Squat 410
    bench 315
    press 185x5
    Deadlift 420
    clean 275

    I challenge you to present to us these "plenty of people". Please note they should have been in their current job for more than a few weeks.

    Well I can't go into their mind to know for sure, so I'm only going based on what I see. There is a lady at my job here that works in the purchasing department and has been with the company for 20-25 years. She is always super happy and super nice coming to ask me how I like Tulsa and my job. In the 5 months that I have been here, I have never seen her sad, mad or miss a day at work.

    I would also say my dad is one of those people. I've asked him several times why he doesn't cut down on the amount of work he takes on or days he works since it is no longer necessary. He works 7 days a week. But he says he enjoys the challenges of work and that he would have nothing to do if he were at home. He doesn't watch TV, he doesn't watch movies, he doesn't really listen to music. Really, his only hobby outside of work is the stock market. So it's go to work, meet new people, and get the fulfillment of fixing their problems or sit in front of a computer all day and watch numbers move.
