1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    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.

    The standard practice in this situation is for the person who takes her place to split it with her and pay 150

    Yeah, she'd be eating the 300 if noone came anyway, but on the other hand the person is getting a pretty good discount, and in the interest of courtesy...This way they both win

    Anyway, that would seem fair to me.

    Have fun in A'dam Fuji and stay out of the Regulierdwarsstraat (unless going for cocktails at door 74). PM me if u want any specific tips for places to go.

    As far as morality goes, 4th person sure, but last resort. Had similar dilemma once and we got 4th person on days notice for 150 quid which seemed fair. gain/loss @50% divided equally.

    -edit-
    only reading hendrix's post now. he beat me to it.

    Thanks brahs. This has been considered I may ask him tomorrow. We are quite likely just going to get high, eat truffles and walk about. I have very little spending money so no cocktails or whores sadly. Obvs ill be hitting up the outside gym and make some gains. Greatly upset the museums cost money there. Also going to a beach and Antwerp for a bit.

    how concerned should i be if i have an asymmetrical gait? my right foot naturally rotates outwards more when i'm walking, and i have to consciously bring in my right foot when i'm squatting. i have minor recurring hip irritation in that side that seems to be exacerbated by random squat sessions, so perhaps its related?

    common sense is telling me i should just get on band abductor/adductor work and TKE's to ensure i don't track funny and not worry too much about it. what say you RHET

    Who can read all of that shit? I don't read anything in WAYWT anymore. BB has never looked all that good in anything so I can't help but assume his entire post is about that given the two sentences I skimmed.

    Should setup a RHET tinychat or Google Hangout so we can all ask each other if we even lift face to face.

    Lifting face to face seems somewhat off-putting.

    Tmr last day at the gym where I started and have trained for several years now. Moving house. Will need to find new gym buddy.
    Will probably do big 3 PR attempts as a farewell.

    Gonna take my delicious pre-workout and go do my work out. Looking forward to some fun and healthy injury free squats, OHP, and DL.

    (will post follow-up from amberlamps)

    Don't understand the SW&D stuff since I'm usually just on the Aus thread.....also TLDR :)
    Crat-Good luck on the Pr's; always sad leaving a gym buddy behind T_T
    Eason- Good luck on your lifts too!

    Thanks; never done T-bar rows (stupid; probably...) but bent over rows are regular, though I mostly end up with my low back getting tired half way through work sets without much being felt in the upper back(moreso then mid). I do them Pendlay style; should I do them Yates style or just add T-bar instead? Will also try face pulls tomorrow, lucky getting these answers as tomorrow is heavy pull day :)

    You should run that foot through some external and INTERNAL rotation tests, see how it fairs. If it's terrible you should prob do some band abductor/adductor stuff.

    This is such a sad feel. I remember when I left the first gym I joined which had all those hilarious people like "mr watts" in I used to post about, was legit devastated. Had to go to some poverty as fuck commercial chain gym, where you had to pay for unnecessary stuff like insurance and a gym license.

    Normal for my btn press to be way weaker than my reg strict press? I can strict press 60kg for 3 reps, can't even get 40kg with btn. Also high rep btn work makes my traps sore?

    was brushing my teeth when i read this and spit foamy toothpaste all over myself lol

    I felt like death in the gym today. 3rd set at 260 felt like an execution. OHP at 155 last rep made my legs shake, somehow the only thing that felt good was the DL. I need more sleep
