    I'm stalling a bit on 165 @ 3x5 bench. Still at about 152 or so last time on weighed myself (wtf Jackie chan meme)

    I have no aesthetics and the talk of incidents is chilling.

    Edit:
    Once you get form and mobility down you should be squatting and DL better. I am still trying to correct my squat @ 155 lb. but my DL last week was a 235 lb.

    Knees sort of felt weird during squats while 2 days later on DL it was fine. Ymmv

    Happy easter RHET brahs, I was doing super squats today (backwards hack squats) and after a sickening drop set of 4 plates per side, 3 then 2 for 10 reps per set I noticed that my sweat formed jesus's face on the pad of the hack squat. Obviously this means I am in fact jesus and I have risen out of the bottom of a deep as fuck 415lb hack squat. I suppose the plates are circular so you could say they represent the bolder that rolled away (I was doing a drop set so they fell off the machine) to let jesus out of the hacksquat.

    Also got some sickening reps with 405lb on sumo deads and tore the shit out of my shins and knee caps.

    only 3 plates on the bar because that was after 315 for 3x10. Left some blood on the bar so the next guy using it for bench or something can do dat der holy communion with it.

    TK - pretty impressive progress you've made. i wish i had the genetics for that.

    Eason - how much all that sushi run you over there in the motherland?

    Fuji - dem calves! time to focus on those other body parts sparky. no one who dl's 405 should have legs that skinny.

    Obviously they guy with 19" calves has to post them after my 13" beasts, feels bad man. I can't even use the excuse of saying I train them and they don't respond, I just really can't be fucked to train them. Takes fairly long to do them, it's boring and it's physically painful. Suppose I could get like a step and do them at home or something, don't have the motivation to do them in the gym .

    Hmmm... My calves were 16" when when started lifting and 1 year later with calf raises on every leg day, they're still 16".
    Also, is it weird that I can do calf raises with 50 lbs more and 10 more reps per set than my bench press?

    My calves were ridiculous when I olympic lifted. Always super tight though.

    I guess. "Genetics" are probably second only to "INTERNAL ROTATION" in topics that we beat to death around here.

    heh +1

    i agree with you in 99% of times in ripping someone who says "i will never amount to anything because genetics" or "you only look aesthetic cuz you genetic." i do think its fair to say something like "my arms are stupidly long therefore benching probably isnt my strong point, although it probably makes me a better deadlifter." pointing out how genetics have influenced ones training is ok; blaming genetics for not being able to understand hard work and consistency is not

    in all fairness to you though, i feel like the former is much more common than the latter

    What's wrong with taking Men's 1-a-day daily? I have heard it is bad for your liver or something. Similar discussion for the generic Costco brand vitamin pills.

    Recently been just taking the fish pills and vitamin D. Looking for a good source for E and C.

    But it seems the Men's 1-a-day covers all those necessary vitamins.


    edit:
    just going to take the fish pill and continue drinking full glass of almond milk a day (has the zinc, D, E)

    Going to buy some vitamin C tablets at Costco
