    I'd be fine not listening to music, but I do so to drown out the obnoxious music that's always playing in my gym.

    Yo Adam, started seeing a girl and she lives all the way uptown, like by Fordham. If I recall correctly you do as well no? Any good hole in the wall spots/bars?

    I don't think you're going deep enough and your right knee looks like its buckling a little. I'd recommend doing lighter weights with a band wrapped around your knees.

    But it's like who the fuck am i to give advice

    Definitely not deep enough, stay focus it's look like you were getting distracting by your surrounding and your upper back should be tighter. Lower the weight and work on your form imo.

    yeah nowhere near deep enough for a conventional squat.

    If you're going for a powerlifting squat, your knees are coming too far forward.

    She goes to Fordham. Lives in Wash Heights, what's good up there?

    If you could recommend a good spot to get lunch that would be dope, preferably not crazy expensive and good place when you're still trying to get close state.

    Also has booze.

    Also might not necessarily card because she is still 20.

    Haha, mad specific but I rarely venture past like...14th street/out of BK.

    Yes, not deep enough.. mainly because his technique is very off.

    But that second part.. not true. Knees tracking in front of your toes is fine if your technique (given that it's clean), form, and body proportions causes them to go forward. A lot raw powerlifters are going to have their knees in front of their feet, including me.

    Ah ok.

    I sorta meant it not in the way that the knees shouldn't come forward at all, just that the squat doesn't look like a proper low bar squat because of how far forward the weight is. It looks like the weight is over his toes, not his heels.

    Which is wrong for any type of squat.

    Its not a low bar squat. I don't think I can do low bar, my arms don't bend that way.

    I have been a little ambitious. I put about 40lb on the bar in the last ~3 weeks. I will drop the weight, go deeper and work on keeping the line of action through the middle of my feet.

    There's this dude at my gym, little black guy, probably about 5'7. He is fucking JACKED and shredded and ripped all at the same time. Like he's huge in the sense that he's beefy as hell, but he's probably got 8-10% BF at all times. He wears under armour and you can actually see his abs rippling beneath. He also reps 275 like it's babyweight. Is it pretty safe to assume that he is on gear?

    I'm not putting him down or anything, I think he looks amazing (despite being a manlet) and he is obviously very strong, i'm just curious is that how gear actually makes you perform and look?

    Can't say without a picture (and even then, it's just a guess). Your definition of JACKED and shredded is probably completely different than mine. 8-10%.. not shredded. But anyways, I wouldn't ponder those kinds of things.. why do you care? :)

    Main thing gear does is help you recovery quicker. More frequency + faster recovery = More strength + size in a shorter span of time.

    Haha, well to be honest, why do I care... I don't have any moral or ethical qualms with gear, and a long ways down the line, when I truly feel like I have absolutely exhausted my genetic potential I could see myself giving them a go. With that being said I would only do this if I got super rich and had someone in the know set up the programming/dosages/which drugs to take.

    At this point, I just am curious, trying to spot out which guys are on gear or not gives me a better idea of what I can accomplish naturally. I think starting to get educated about it is important...Also, the whole culture/science behind it is immensely interesting in my opinion.

    For what it's worth, he looks pretty much like this, but with an even bigger chest [​IMG]

    If he looks like that, he looks pretty good. Nothing out of the ordinary though and conditioning kind of sucks (not very lean for a bb show). Could go either way, but probably not imo.

    (btw, don't know why you'd have to be rich.. a basic cycle is dirt cheap lol)

    Haha, don't put thoughts into my head. I dunno, i'd feel a lot more comfortable hiring some doctor who worked with pro athletes/movie stars or some shit. He figures it all out, all I gotta do is poke myself. Kind of how you do with your diet, and all you do is the heavy lifting ; )
