    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.

    does anyone else find it kind of funny when TK rips on people for saying genetics have influenced their training negatively :stirpot:


    you trusted a man with a popped polo collar to spot you???

    excellent squats, what are you aiming for next meet again

    Haha oddly enough he's the only one in the gym I trust to spot me on squats. He's an vet of powerlifting. Real old school too.

    Thanks for the nice words. A 570 squat would be really nice at the meet.

    No shoulders?

    I was thinking about doing a split like this, but with shoulders and legs together. My shoulder workout is pretty quick (behind the neck press, upright rows, lateral raises)

    I throw in shoulder movements every day. Arnold press and front raise on chest day, face pull and reverse pec dec on back day, overhead press and lateral raises on leg day.

    Gym im using at Cambridge has an eleiko bar. Doesn't feel any different to me, obviously it's a bit better then the really shit bars, but it doesn't feel any better then the normal ones. I always just grab the narrowest bar there is, hate using thick as fuck bars, especially for squats.

    Grabbed a BodyBugg off Ebay earlier today. Very much looking forward to getting rid of all the guesswork. Hopefully it'll help me shed the last pounds in the coming month.

    Good progress.

    Do some national service physical profiency test today, while still bulking.

    Standing Broad Jump: 2.55m (2.28m 5 years ago!)
    Pullups: 12
    Shuttle-run: 9.8s - was a bitch though, keep slipping had to re-take
    Sit-ups under 1 min: 45
    2.4km run: 9:25mins

    Not bad.

    Kind of concerned that i have lost about 8-9lbs and dont look any leaner. Just feel slightly smaller all over, but still fat. If i dont see a major difference in the next 10lb loss then i will kind of run out of room to keep cutting as i will be way too skinny at sub 180. I was working on the assumption of being 200 @ 20% when i started which i thought was pretty generous, surley i can't have been like 25% lol wtf.
