Re: Random crap

i emailed biotest to see how much it'd cost to get a couple of t-shirts sent to the UK. Turns out it'll cost $70! Disappointing. I was going to buy one of those black shirts that say "testosterone" on them and wear it as a reward for myself for when I hit 200lbs. Don't. Most of the guys I see aroun...

Did you see the picture in that article? He's the little guy in the middle. I'm famous :headbang: http://robertsontrainingsystems.com/blog/800-pound-abs/#comment-7043" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Yeah, Christian Savoire (sp?) won. He's around 6'4" and 360lbs. I'm pretty tiny.

Re: Random crap

I don't remember just where you placed, but you weren't last, were you? You were right in there with the big boys. I mean, the other big boys. No, I got 11th out of 12. It was alot closer though than the score let on. My whole second day was a wash. Pretty much all of the events were grip related a...

Re: Random crap

He didn't say "pro", just "professional level". Meaning you're as good as the pros. And you got invited to that Canadian thing where you didn't blow out nearly as many ligaments as the pros--didn't you have to qualify as a pro for that? That's the way I took it as well. For North America's, they wa...

I learned this a while back. When people are asking for advise, they are really wanting you to agree with them. Not actually correct them.

My standard answer is, "Eat more and deadlift." You should see the looks on their faces. :cheers:

Re: Why what and when for 1rep max

The traditional Westside program calls for a 1RM or 3RM every ME training day. If you feel good, go for 1RM. If not, go for 3RM. John Broz does something similiar with squats and snatches. I started pulling heavy singles (not the same as maxing) on my deadlift for every deadlift workout and put abou...

Re: Leg Drive (I Believe!)

I think it just adds more stability to the lift. I even go as far as wearing my Olympic lifting shoes while I bench so I'll have a hard surface to press against. If you watch any elite powerlifters, they'll also use a very wide stance with their feet. Especially if they lift in the IPF. Again, this ...

Re: Where you been, where you are, where you going, ....

I remember when…
I got buried by a 115lb squat.

I was excited when…
I could bench 225.

One day soon, I’ll
Deadlift 800.

I can’t wait for the day I
Bench 500

Is it asking too much to…

Re: GHR

But yeah, like Erick said, if you can't find a good way to do GHRs, there are other alternatives. Good mornings, for instance. Erick, my idea of a successful rep on GHR is if I get to the floor without using my arms. I've never done that on a second rep. From then on, if it's something other than f...

Re: Random crap

That's a horrible injury! It's hard to understand how it happened. I mean, how a weight that you can lift just suddenly do that? Was it more than he had previously done? That would be hard to believe, as the movement seems so much the same as other carries, and presumable a guy at this level of com...

Re: Random crap

That was a lot of weight in that wheelbarrow. Still, it must of been great being in that company. I hope your friend's knees turn out OK. It was a good measuring stick to tell where I am in relation to that caliber of guys. Unfortuantly, Ricky is hurt pretty bad. He tore both patellar tendons, the ...
