Random health and exercise thoughts - Page 2904
Trying to come up with ideas for next research project. A few ideas:
1. Cardiovascular health profiles between those who do strict dieting vs IIFYM type dieting
2. Bone density profiles in women doing strength training vs distance running vs a combined program
3. Looking for radiological(xray) evidence of vertebral pathology in elite-level deadlifters based on degree of lumbar flexion during the lift
Any suggestions appreciated.
Also I'm drunk.
#2 seems like the only feasible one here
I haven't tested 1 rep max, but as of this week I'm 340x5 DL, 280x5 squat and 185x5 bench @ 148 BW after just over a year of consistent lifting (~3 days a week), and I would love to be able to split the difference between your bench and mine. But I remember lifting in college and being excited when I could finally bench 1 plate, so it just is going to take time to overcome my bird chest genetics.
This is quite good. Last time I tested my 5 rep max (back in Feb) I had roughly the same numbers.
I have been lifting for a longer time but I was fucking around for so long. A year ago my back squat was at 165lbs x 5, bench 150 x 5 and DL 250 x 5, so decent progress still I guess.
interns are a pain if you got no obvious use for them. I have mine collect experimental data, but that´s about as useful as they get (in academia). Your massive data set idea is good, just give them a link to some machine learning algorithms and tell them you expect wonders.
Very stupid. Your meathead math is way off point.
Meathead Math 101:
135, 225, 315, 405, 495, 585, 675, 765, 855.. come on, bro.. do you even math?
Hey TK - so any thoughts on whether you packed on muscle from that bulk compared to last year?
