My ROM for shrugs when I go heavy like that is probably about 3/4 of complete and there is a little bit of leg action though I try and minimize that as much as possible. I counted last time I did shrugs and it was 565 (bar full with 45s and one set of 35s).

hrm does that mean I have a weak grip? I have no probs doing the deads I do without wraps (~315 tops for now), but I can't hold on when I try and do shrugs (usually go a minimum of 350 and goes up to whatever the bar can hold).

I used to do this ex on a platform with ~185-225 following the methodology of bending the back, I probably went a little too low (hands 1-2 inches below feet) but I got a KILLER ham workout. During that time I never really noticed any specific lower back pain. Recently I've been having strange tight...

I've used a mixed grip before and while it does allow for more weight than a pronated grip I think it feels funny. I'm much more a fan of wrist wraps because you can keep the over hand grip and go rediculously heavy (no way in hell I can hold ~500 lbs with a mixed grip, let alone overhand).

tribulus terristis (spelling is probably off) is an indirect test booster that shouldn't mess with your body too much.

never done the lying ones so I can't really compare (it seems like it might be an awkward thing to do in a gym)

buy protein at costco...99 servings (~25 grams a serving) for 20 bucks and if you want to bump the quality buy some muscle milk and do 1/3 serving muscle milk and 3/4-1 serving of the cheap stuff.

I haven't heard a whole lot about problems caused by a back heavy imbalance (far more frequent is a chest heavy imbalance that is probably 4-5 points chest to 2 points back). I wonder if O (or another person in the exercise physiology know how) could address potential problems from a back heavy imba...

I used a set-up like this for a month or so and found it worked wonders for cutting but didn't do a whole lot for adding mass so I changed to a set up like this: chest/back heavy, shoulder/bi/tri heavy, leg/oly heavy, off day, chest/back/shoulder light, Legs/bi/tri light. I think this has been fairl...
