ahhhh.... university life
mr tk, i made fat grips out of pool noodles like you did and good fuck, forearm swole. i managed maybe 2/3rds of the reps i would usually do. great idea, i think i will slap them on for my final set or do a couple weeks on/off with them.
Thanks for the recommendation (not srs)
I on the other hand predict good gainz, taking me from 195-215 due to the fact that i have never failed to make gainz in the past and know how to eat and put the time in at the gym. You know what? The amount of conflicting information doesnt make it easy to pick a program when all the experts disagree. But when i do pick a program, i stick with it until i hit a weight goal or get injured.
so then why are you asking? do it and see what happens
Better to get some feedback from people who have tried it where possible. Plus I was bringing up the challenge as i thought it was pretty interesting....but whatever.
I need to do this. I have the wrists / forarms like a Fuji.
Feels fucking horrible man and grip strength has never been a problem. My massive marfans disorder hands basically mean I don't have to put any effort into gripping stuff. Will go do rackpulls with 200kg+ tomorrow with a bit of chalk and 6" wrists.
Thing I love about westside, massive amount of freedom in terms of my ME lifts. Still mostly box squat. Also outside my flat theres a fruit market that sells 2 pineapples for a pound. Eating a whole pineapple with breakfast everyday.
I'm the same way. It's just leftover from our skinny jil sander wearing days. I'm gonna start doing 1,000 hammer curls every workout.
Add bro-ups too.
haha mom visiting me for the first time since I moved away 6 months ago. She just legit asked me if I am taking steroids with a super serious face. Feels great especially since these 6 months have sucked cause of my injury but somehow I still made good progress aesthetically.
Can't wait to go deadlift tomorrow at Iron Arena with Jason Manenkoff and the rest of the powerlifting group there.

Cook 20 oz chicken, put on frozen pizza with extra cheese, ranch and full fat milk. Best PWO meal
Taking a week off lifting because of exams. Haven't deloaded or taken any long resting period since summer anyway, so it might be needed.
What's your opinion on deloading? Should it only be done if I can't progress with the weights? Should I go back to max effort - try to push as hard as possible on the first workout or back down a bit and work up the weights through my previous best?
not once every 4 wks as some experts would have you believe
Got dem arm genetics, amigo.
