Re: Nice to "Meat" You...

In Nick's case, his LBM is about 175. That would be at most about about 180 g or 3 eggs, 1 1/2 lb meat or fish and 3 glasses of milk. The least would about 120 g or 2 eggs, 1 lb meat or fish and 2 glasses of milk. Most of which should be eaten for dinner?? Seems to me there's a limit to how much pr...

Re: 1RM

Awhile back I was trying to figure out what was the normal progression for people who were starting 5/3/1. My approach wasn't very scientific -- I just searched online for posted 5/3/1 routines. Found about a dozen or so. What I found was that (in general) in the first 6 months you can expect about ...

Re: 1RM

This page will help you with calculated 1RM. Wendler uses a different calculation in 531 -- but it's pretty close.

I suppose if your 4RM is 90%, then according to that handy chart below, your 8RM is 80%... Beachle.

Ah -- sorry I missed that in your post. With a 200kg DL you should be giving me advice!

Re: 1RM

I set my goals based on my calculated 1RM in relation to my body weight. It serves no purpose really other than to have something to shoot at. I don't use my real 1RM because I don't think it's a safe to test regularly. I'm working on 2*BW for DL, and 1*BW for MP, BP and FS (front squat). There's al...

Re: bench

DLs are great for improving your grip. Forget about straps/hooks. Do pullups instead of pulldowns. Stand on bench or use bands and start with slow negs if you can't do pullups yet.

That's funny. The OP has been banned and as a result all his posts are gone -- including the one that started this thread.

Re: definition of a quad/glute exercise

wot! -- not going to let him fix his typos? the man does have some issues... the least of which was his atrocious spelling. Anywhooo.... That is a great article. It got me thinking. Don't we also think of the DL as a posterior chain exercise? Doesn't that mean that if were doing it right then it wor...

Re: Back squat sufficent for hamstring development?

Many moons ago Stu shared a research paper that addressed muscle activation for deadlift variations that might be helpful. You can try searching for it.
I've always thought of squats as being quad dominant and DLs for hams and glutes primarily.

Re: You can't build a big house without materials

I don't know -- it sure sounds correc' to me. Not only won't you gain weight if you don't consume more calories than you burn, eventually you'll die. As I recall I did often think about this in physics class.

Shouldn't this be in Diet & Nutrition?

Re: Not training to failure

When I have trouble sleeping for several nights and I feel lethargic during the days and I don't have any interest in working out -- I call that CNS fatigue. I stop working out for several days until I get a good night's sleep. I'm not sure if that's actually CNS fatigue or overload or what but taki...
