Problem here is the rep starts at the bottom, which is annoying but not a deal breaker, but even worse, is that it the bar height must start below the bottom of the rep, otherwise the weights hits the blocks before the bottom of the rep. This makes it really hard to get into a starting position. Its basically a dead press but your arms are not yet in line with the bar.
    Use the crossfit method. Depending on the weight, you can get it all the way up to lockout or just to the bottom.

    Blanton's is ok to me. I don't mind it really, but I always have something better at home. I am going to Islay for a week in September. Staying at Bowmore for a couple days and trying to get to as many distilleries as possible. Should be a good time.

    That sounds awesome. So many great distilleries there, Lagavulin, Ardbeg, Bunnahahain, Bruichladdich. Are you making it to the mainland at all? Or just Islay? Either way that sounds like a fun trip.

    We have two nights in Edinburgh after, but the majority of the trip is in Islay.

    I am not blown away by Blanton's and I know several that love it. I have a bottle and I have a 375 that I bought when I was able to taste the barrel on the front end.

    That will be a good trip and you'll get to try many things. Should be interesting.

    I'm a big fan of Willet, Widow Jane and Four Roses, especially the barrel proof stuff.

    After seeing a hard workout you may want to complain and want others to pity you for the work you have to do. Your mom will pity you. Your girl will pity you. I may pity you, but your competition will not pity you. They will step on you, walk over you and spit on you. � Boris Sheiko

    Dude from Powerlifting to Win deciding to close up shop and no longer have any involvement with powerlifting.

    Then goes on to not state why he's done with the sport to his "followers". Such is the way of those that put their lives out there on social media. They only show you what they want to then don't want to show you sh!t outside of that and close up.

    when's the last time Powerlifting to Win was even relevant though? His content was pretty big like 3-4 years ago and he completely stopped for a few years. Came back in the last year or so but didn't hear much about it, likely because there's SO much content out there now. Probably realized it's just not a profitable enterprise at this point.

    Was a bit weird, then remembered he's always been a money chaser really, new book probably didn't do as well as he wanted (despite it being a pretty damn good update)
    and I guess failing to get into nationals triggered something..

    Just his whole attitude towards his followers kind of struck me the wrong way. The guy came off as a dick and may very well be in real life.

    If you have followers that have supported you, bought your e-books, supported your website, etc, etc the least you can do is give a brief reason as to why you dropped everything and no longer want to be part of the sport.

    Instead he hits them with reasons like "I don't want to tell you more about my personal life" bs. Oh and he took the post down lol.

    It happens. I know USAPL doesn't really track the statistics, but the average membership probably lasts 1 to 3 years these days. Those that have been competing for 20+ years are a huge minority. A lot of people simply get burned out from the training and he probably burned himself out from all the content he was putting out as well. I think he said he was going to keep his website and all his free content up though in that post, before he removed it. So people can still access his info and maybe he'll end up coming back once he's had some time off.

    After seeing a hard workout you may want to complain and want others to pity you for the work you have to do. Your mom will pity you. Your girl will pity you. I may pity you, but your competition will not pity you. They will step on you, walk over you and spit on you. � Boris Sheiko

    I have a programming question for anyone who has experience with coaching.
    I had a look at the free programs Blaine Sumner put on his site and i noticed something odd. On all the programs, the first week has the most volume, but then over the next few weeks the intensity remains the same but the volume decreases.
    For example:
    Week 1: 5sets x 8reps 73%
    Week 2: 5sets x7reps 73%
    Week 3: 5sets x6reps 73%
    Week 4: 3sets x5reps 72%
    (Im guessing that week 4 is a deload week. )

    I feel like this would be detrimental to making progress, since the weeks are getting "easier". Surely you need either the volume or intensity to increase to drive progress?
    If anyone could explain the reasoning behind this method, id be very interested.

    As in, there's a huge gap between the number of lifters who have been around 1-3 years and number of lifters who have been around 20+ years. Like 95% to 0.5%, so huge minority.

    I'd say 2015-Current is about 95%. Anyone from before 2015 is 5% or less and thats including the people who don't really compete anymore just judge
