    I like that in spite of the crazy spam this forum is getting, this RHET thread is still always near the top of the H&B sub-forum. It's a good metaphor to represent how those of us in this thread have overcome a barrage of devious forces in our world to become as strong as we can possibly be, and how we will continue to fight all the demons that seek to oppress us in the pursuit of strength and glory.

    I have been awake for 42 hours straight now with only 60mg of ritalin and 10mg of dexamphetamine, I'm going to be such a good investment banker.

    Today was supposed to be a rest day, but I felt like going to the gym, so I just messed around and tested maxes. 355 DL, 260 squart and 235 bench. 850 total at 189 BW, year of serious lifting ALL NATTY. is this good? i really have no idea.

    also its stupid how high my bench in comparison to my squat, but whatever.

    If we could trade my squat for your bench maybe combined together we would have a decent total for someone training a bit over a year

    I do dumbbell incline bench, barbell feels kind of funky on my shoulders. What's your reasoning for doing it?

    Just a different angle of hiting it I guess. I feel a stretch and flex way more in my chest when I do inclines

    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.

    So I just realized that the past couple weeks I've been adding up three plates as 305 instead of 315, which explains why all my lifts went "down". Fucking hell how fucking stupid is that

    Lol. I somehow convinced myself that 2 plates was 215 and was a little discouraged when jumping from 210x12 to "215" x6 when squatting

    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.
