    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Guessing the SS grip is fairly narrow as in like little finger on the ring or something? That could be why too, when I had the same problem I remember someone suggesting i slowly widen my grip, still only do ring finger on the ring, but thats the grip i use for all movements pretty much.

    We have different bar typs. Sucks. Cheap uni gym.
    SS grip is as narrow as possible with thumbs on the bar. I'll widen my grip next week and see how it goes.

    Nah, I think Stinger's pretty tall too.
    Being tall and naturally skinny, you're pretty much guaranteed to be aesthetic once you've gotten stronger and push big numbers. You'll look pretty thin up to that point though. I remember my early teens when I was envious of my short friend who looked pretty aesthetic despite only riding a BMX and doing some cardio.

    Although since my market is located in Asia, I'm actually not a manlet considering the median height here (like 1.73m or something)

    6'1". Finally getting strength back. BP is back to reps at 225. OHP in the low 100s. Feeling good, pretty lean at 180, could probably go up to 200 and cut back down.

    going to do a proper cut this time.

    planned out the minutiae of daily meals for the next week with my coach and I'm going to just do the same thing every week and maybe switch up the protein. Even have two days of ice cream planned in.

    in two months i'm going to be posting about how i got to 6,7 % bf for the first time. so pumped

    Its ok, the supply is 1.6m asian bz...so there is still untapped demand.

    ...although all goes out the window when i meet >1.75m caucasian females

    edit:
    also the foreign guys I do party with are brazilians/mex/french, and I'm still one of the taller ones :)

    be nice to be 6 feet tall tho.
