Yeah, regularly doing 1RM's is a stupid idea, unless your goal is to fuck up your body and burn the fuck out.

 

Also, brown rice has more nutrients than white rice, no? Pretty sure that's true.

no one ever got big on singles. i love stuff like dog shit that is cumulative.

What's your routine, if your goal is strength it should be taking you to new weight PRs.

Yes, my goal is strength. I've been doing Stronglifts 5x5 for the last 3 weeks. But I've added an extra day for bench, overhead press, rows, and deadlifts on weeks with only one session of deadlift.

i guess its just too easy to leverage technique over gains when you practice a few specific lifts.

Did a bunch of lunges and good mornings with 50kg after. Forearm and calf cramped up hard during the 180x1, struggles of that office life.
I really thought dude was trolling. Units.... the comma of the bodybuilding world

I just started a new job Monday after working at home for a year. Im dying. My sleep has gone to shit. Hit a new PR on bench today though.

Pretty interesting study:

 

J Exp Biol. 2011 Feb 15;214(Pt 4):674-679. Muscle damage and muscle remodeling: no pain, no gain?
Quote:
 Skeletal muscle is a dynamic tissue that responds adaptively to both the nature and intensity of muscle use. This phenotypic plasticity ensures that muscle structure is linked to patterns of muscle use throughout the lifetime of an animal. The cascade of events that result in muscle restructuring - for example, in response to resistance exercise training - is often thought to be initiated by muscle damage. We designed this study to test the hypothesis that symptomatic (i.e. detectable) damage is a necessary precursor for muscle remodeling. Subjects were divided into two experimental populations: pre-trained (PT) and naive (NA). Demonstrable muscle damage was avoided in the PT group by a three-week gradual 'ramp-up' protocol. By contrast, the NA group was subjected to an initial damaging bout of exercise. Both groups participated in an eight-week high-force eccentric-cycle ergometry program (20 min, three times per week) designed to equate the total work done during training between the groups. The NA group experienced signs of damage, absent in the PT group, as indicated by greater than five times higher levels of plasma creatine kinase (CK) and self-reporting of initial perceived soreness and exertion, yet muscle size and strength gains were not different for the two groups. RT-PCR analysis revealed similar increases in levels of the growth factor IGF-1Ea mRNA in both groups. Likewise, the significant (P<0.01) increases in mean cross-sectional area (and total muscle volume) were equal in both groups. Finally, strength increases were identical for both groups (PT=25% and NA=26% improvement). The results of this study suggest that muscle rebuilding - for example, hypertrophy - can be initiated independent of any discernible damage to the muscle.

 

TLDR; The researchers concluded that you don't need such high training volume that you break down the muscle to see the same hypertrophy gains as doing less work for the muscle in that workout.

Kind of want one with a built in freezer because I don't have much freezer space.

On that Squat 3x a week bench 3x a week back erryday time




making some hamstring gains, hoping to squat 200kg before the end of the summer.

The Russian powerlifting competition "Battle of Champions" ended a couple days ago.

Only the best lifters, in all weight classes, participate. No drug testing, as every lifter has been tested positive at some point in their career.

4 attempts, only bench and deadlift, no squats. Boris Sheiko is the head judge.

 

Anyway, some insane records was set:
