Expect to hear that if bad things happen." - Rucifer The firearms used at Sandy Hook were stollen. Yeah, stollen from his parents house were he lived. Par...

Re: Programming the Accessories

Powerlift the big lifts and bodybuild the accessories. So try and look at accessories through a bodybuilders lens. Weight isn't as important, there will always be the odd session that you go so hard on the big lifts that you have nothing left for the accessories, and that's ok, just get some high r...

Re: Goals for 2013

My goals have completely $h1t the bed this year due to trying to find a good routine. Currently doing 5/3/1 and I'm besting my old ORM's via reps, but not going to test until end of year.

Re: do you use gloves or grips?

file them down, or just do what I do and pick them off. So satisfying! I used to pick them off, but it always caused more bad than good. I started using a disposable safety razor to take them down. So the morning before I would DL, I take them all down in the shower after I've warmed and soaped the...

Re: Convincing my fiancee to lift weights

I just wish I could get my wife to go to the gym period. 2 years after the wedding and 1 year after the baby, I think she has gone TWO times this year. Once was to shower when we had no power and the other was to actually work out. I hope it actually sticks this time around but I'm doubtful. Desire...

Re: Gun Control

I've found that too much caffeine interferes with this. For competition, you can take small doses of beta blockers. I don't know if that is contrary to any rules or not, but it makes you a little steadier. Other than that, good control requires practice. The old procedure of taking a deep breath, l...

Re: Does lifting heavier weights inhibit weight loss?

TO answer your question easily, No.

I have lost 93lbs over the last 3-1/2 years and I have only not lifted heavy for maybe 6 months total.

Re: Bicep work with limited wrist involvement

BB and ez bar curls put weird strains on my left wrist that I sprained a few years back. I switched to DB and haven't had a problem....especially with hammer curls.

Re: Dropped Dumbell near lockout on db bench

THe last time I worked out with DB for bp, I was using 105lb db's and after the 2nd rep I was giving it my all to get it up. Once I got it up my right arm failed and I dropped it. Luckily it was like it happened in slow mo where I was able to think and guide it away from my chest/face.

2012 chin/pull up challenge

Why is the thread locked?

I hit my record of 5.

Now trying for 5x5. Already hit 4x4 so I have a little more work to do.

Re: 5/3/1 template

I would do the "I'm Not Doing Jack $h1t" or "just North Of Vag" template.
