    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.

    Smolov has you doing 136 work squats at a minimum of 70% of your 1rm a week. More then half of those reps are in sets of 9 or 7, that will make you grow fuck loads. Ran it twice, always put loads of size on my legs.

    Edit: fucking hell at erics squat speed. Don't really understand why he psyches himselves up for 550lb squats though when he's maxing at 906lb. I'm not spending a minute prepping for a 200lb single.

    Because the top 50 I listed are the "current" top 50 meaning they're lifts from the last 12 months.

    The #100 is off the list for the top lifters since 2007.

    I did it to give you a reference of where to 50th person stood in a slightly larger picture.



    Looks great on you man!



    Yes.

    Personally like RDL over GHR or goodmornings...easiest to get form right, and can go heavy for 5 reps.

    Felt like a boss on medicine rotation when I recommended we give some bronkaid to congested patient and it worked like a charm. Might help them lose weight too.

    Inb4 they have heart attack :-/

    Was supposed to pause bench 325x2x5 yesterday.

    Misloaded my first working set by accident and put on 335 instead of 325.

    Was disappointed for a split second until I realized that I just tripled my 1RM from exactly 11 weeks ago. :slayer:


    [VIDEO][/VIDEO]



    Going for 330x2x5 next week! I won't misload this time haha

    being at a new job ive been working longer hours and neglecting the gym, a shitty contrast to the couple weeks off where I was in the gym daily at off peak hours. Thanks, guys for the inspo to get back in there during the week.

    Really depends how close in proximity you are to either one of the upscale areas or a university. I live really close to my old university and there's certainly a good amount to look at around there. It used to be the case with the bar scene, too, but I can't say that's really the case as much as even a few years ago. I'm not sure where college kids are hanging out around here, but it doesn't seem to be the strip of bars that my fellow college classmates flocked to when I was in school. I'd imagine part of that is because said bar scene is a good 20 minutes from campus and located on the fringe of what's become more and more of an unsafe area.

    The cleanliness thing applies to where you are, too. There are some real shitholes - most of Detroit, Flint, Saginaw - but there are some really beautiful (and clean!) areas, too, though they're mostly upstate.

    makes sense, i was in troy which is okay. funny how it goes from port huron-ish unkemptness to HOLY FUCKING SHIT GIANT LUXURY SHOPPING MALL in the span of 5 minutes drive. i like the area though, somerset + nordstrom rack + maggianos all close together makes for a good day. only 2 hours drive from my place in ontario too.

    was at a red wings game a month ago and stayed at the greektown casino, stuck out like a sore SF thumb. the people mover wasnt bad but man detroit can be unsettling. also, WTF is with not banning smoking indoors. 2 hours at the casino left me dying.

    this month

    don't seem too much bigger this month, maybe a little leaner, more upper body gains then normal though. Haven't really gotten much stronger because of the SI joint injury.

    Speaking of legs..

    Caught off guard 30 minutes ago by a dude telling me I've got running back / rugby legs.

    I didn't think my legs were that big but I guess it's cause I see them everyday.
