if anyones interested in these, we can split shipping
Jackal's Gym - Store

it'd be $87.90 + $13.40 (originally 26.80)
save your money man, dont need em. the only things worth spending money on for lifting are belts and shoes.

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.

Anyone seen that bouncer at The Roxy? The guy is 6'7", 270 and he looks lean as can be. I think he puts Halo to shame. haha Sorry Halo.

Damn it this round backing deadlift thing has been driving me nuts for the past few days. I will eventually take a video just to see how bent I look and ask for your guys.

I've read a few books in the past that say it's okay to round your back if you train for it and have a strong lower back and abs. Done some more searching on the internet and a lot of strong men do it, too.

Fffff...

Its one thing to do everything you can to avoid rounding your back while DLing and having your upper back round a bit on super heavy sets.

But its another to go into deadlifts thinking rounded backs are ok

Been goin hard in the paint 6 days a week for a month or so now. Everything gets hit twice a week.

I think my over training is flairing up


Nah but for cereal, Ive been doing higher rep range stuff and it seems to be spurring a ton of growth. Hitting muscles again just as dom's is tapering off seems to be the key. My legs are growing like mad. Downside is max strength seems to have dropped a little but that I think is partly due to shitty sleep patterns. Gains are sickening. Haven't been eating nearly enough in the last couple weeks tho.

mon - shoulders, upper and Y axis back
tues - legs
wed - chest, and X axis back
thurs - arms
fri - legs, DLs, shoulders, upper and Y axis back
sat - chest, X axis back, arms

Y axis being variations of pull downs/ups. X axis being variations of rows


weighed in at 194 yesterday. 2hun im comin for you

can anyone here shed light on the concept of improving deadlift weight by deadlifting less? i.e. deadlifting once a month, but squatting + olympic lifting more?

Not sure on the premise of olympic lifting, but the movement pattern for squatting is very similar to deadlifting, especially low bar squatting. You are trying to extend your trunk from a crunched up (flexed) position and there is weight preventing you from doing that.

The hip drive, glute activation, leg strength, and lower back muscles all help your body extend from the flexed position.

So to some degree, squatting will help you develop the same muscles being used in your deadlift and will transition into your deadlift even though you're not working on the deadlift directly.

I will also add that because deadlifting is a pulling motion its not a 100% guarantee that you will lift the weight off the ground, and so you can't really have a spotter for deadlifting that can help assist you mentally to finish the lift. This is unlike squatting, where in the eccentric motion, you can have a spotter guide you through it.

not sure if this is what u were looking for but just my thoughts on the matter

weighed in at 194 yesterday. 2hun im comin for you
was just gonna post something like this

started going 6 days a week doing mainly high reps


mon-chest
tues-shoulders/traps A
weds-off
thurs-tris/bis
fri-legs
sat- shoulders/traps B
sun- lower back/bis/forearms

working on proportions, im hitting my lagging muscles more often (shoulders/biceps/forearms), and overpowering muscles less (lats), upper chest is lagging as well but for now shoulders are more important, measuring parts has rly helped me track progress, as of today:

right arm: 15.5"
left arm: 15.25"
shoulders: 48"
waist: ~31"
chest: 43"
neck: 17"
right forearm: 12.5"
left forearm: 12.75"
wrist: 6.5

168lbs

trying to reach the golden ratio for shoulders/waist

Hey guys,

As an active member of this thread, I just wanted to share a quick video of me hitting 1 rep of 225 close-grip bench. The point of this video is that I want to be able to back the numbers I post on here, and although the clip is nothing special..it's just to show that I am lifting around what I claim. Will hopefully have more impressive videos up in the future!

Lift starts at 0:25



I ended up maxing out at 245lb CG. Felt easy, but wasn't going to risk increasing the weight without a spotter.

PS: instantneedles, I'm coming 4 u brah
