Pretty much this. I find that melatonin gives me a better sleep.

I know Im embarassed myself. I hide the fuckers under my sweatshirt as much as I possibly can

my lifts are getting decent now though and to get rid of the straps would fuck shit up. For example, I can't even carry the 120lb db's without straps to the bench but can push out 12 full reps on incline with 120s.

i think the advice most people here would probably tell you is, lose the straps, lower the weight, and start over again. It's almost like when you don't have perfect form for a squat or a DL, they say start with lower weight and work on perfecting the form until you can go heavier. I would assume most ppl here would use the same ideology for your straps issue

Well your pushing pretty good weight, what are you curling

I don't use straps at all. My deadlift has suffered huge since I stopped using a mixed grip. But my grip has seen a huge increase, and after many months, i'm almost back to where I was for the heavy stuff.

Drop the weight, and if you feel like your not getting a workout rep the shit out of the lighter weights.

I can curl 65lb db's for 10+ with perfect form. i have no flexibility in my shoulders so squating rapes my shoulders. they litereally feel like they are going to rip out of their sockets. I've been trying this new stretch to get the shoulders loose lets see how well it goes. I can squat 315 for 10. did 900lb leg press for 20 the other day and was dizzy as fuck. not breathing right on the last 3 reps lol.

I think I'll give the hand grips a try before I go to dropping weight. I guess the longer I keep going without fixing the grip problem the worse it'll get.

i found to make better gains in terms of strength on a 3x5 based program compared to 5x5, the fewer sets allows you to take longer to plateau since its 15 total reps rather than 25, i'd switch to 3x5 and keep going and when you fail at a weight, reduce it by 10-15lbs next workout then continue the 3x5, and keep eating as much as you can, minimum bodyweight in protein, and you'll find that next time you hit the weight you failed on, you'll most likely tackle it, if not you either didn't eat enough, or if you've been doing a program for too long and your body has adjusted to it, its time for a new program with a different approach to making strength gains, don't give up

It's not the steroids that makes the champion but it's hard training .. dedication, the diet and sacrifice and genetics that person has.. what makes the champion.

Come live with me lol


Grilled cheese sandwich, replace cheese with nutella and peanut butter

Egg/Ham/bacon/Cheese grilled cheese sandwich = 1000 calories

If you're looking for calories there's calories to be added everywhere. Going the other way is tough, don't complain about trying to gain weight
