Re: Testing ORM

I only went up by 5lbs. I think I would have been pumped if I tried 325 and stuck it. It definitely wasn't a brag post. I was just off. I'm going to try again next week just to give myself an actual chance.

Went to test my squat ORM. Got up to 320lbs...hit it, but then couldn't get my head right to attempt 325. I know I can do mor...

While it might be possible to maintain muscle mass without heavy squats or deadlifts, it's not exactly ideal from a strength or sports performance point of view. Meanwhile, relying on machine exercises like the leg press may predispose athletes to injury because they develop some muscle groups (tar...

I tell you, having mine snipped was the best thing I ever did. You will be back to squatting and deads before you realize it. Within 3 1/2 weeks I was back to squats with an empty bar on my back.
