Ok, high bar is less strain. But I don't understand your position on stance. How could a narrow stance decrease how much your back bends over?

Well it doesn't stop your ability to sit back, it just makes it less useful I suppose. You wouldn't really get anything out of sitting back with a narrow stance, where as with a wide stance you'd get more hip force. I'm sure someone who knows more about squat mechanics could explain better

I would be interested in seeing an actual study on belt vs. no belt. Everything I read seems like a lot of educated guessing and speculation.

I'd also be curious to take a group of "belts make you weaker" types, give them belts, and take the belts away a group of people who regularly train with belts. (And let's give them a week or so to get used to the switch.) Which will be greater, the increase in the first group's 1RMs or the decrease in the second's? Not exactly scientific, but might be interesting.

Anyway isn't the best of both worlds is to only use the belt for the last one or two warmups and your work sets, and never use the belt for deload/light/recovery days? Your warmup and recovery weights should be increasing as your work weights increase, so your "super raw" unbelted squat will increase, as well.

Do you really go above 85% of your 1rm for working sets that often?

Are there any good bodybuilding books or ebooks? Who puts out good bodybuilding information? I read Arnolds Encyclopedia a bit. After this meet I'm going to bodybuild the shit out of myself.

Will you begin doing flys or are they still too shit a movement?

Got 3 reps with 35kg on chins today, dat feel when you could still do chin ups if you weighed 270lb, such a good feel.

I've been doing standing cable flys for awhile now. Still don't like dumbell flys though.

A 5RM is estimated to be about 85% of a 1RM. If you're running a program like 5/3/1 or Texas Method, you will go above 85% frequently. (Anyway, where did that 85% number come from?)

I just bought a bunch of $7 FOTL specials from Walmart. Hoping they get nice with their first wash. I still love my Uniqlo sweatshirt but I feel like it's too nice for pit and neck stains
