    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.

    Just realized I totalled 700 today for reps, not great but not bad considering I just started SPBR and haven't benched/deadlifted in a while.

    5x5x160 squat :) Going to hold there next session, last few reps were a real grind, then bump it up again next week. Also realized I had a huge gap between 70 and 95lb while trying to do OHP because my 10lb plates are on backorder. Either way, home gym is freaking awesome. Now I just need some cheesy ass posters to fill the wall. Mark definitely get on that GHR, feel so damn good.

    Yeah I wish my gym had a GHR, gonna try what kunk and GN suggested.

    I did 115x3 on OHP this week, a PR for me.

    Also, as for posters, this for sure https://www.google.com/search?hl=en...8.0....0...1ac.1.24.img..0.10.482.9_e3YfdhNPs

    What knucks and gr posted is significantly harder then doing a ghr in a proper machine. I don't find them particularly hard on an actual GHR, but doing them on a lat pull down is ridiculous, I can barely do the eccentric and I definitely can't do the concentric. I see where CTK is coming from, doing them on a lat pull down it does feel like your hamstrings are about to tear.


    Top lol with sloot from yesterday, my biceps were looking sickening from holding her up so I was miring them for a few minutes. Asked why I was looking at my arms instead of her. Also wore geisha make up yesterday, contemplating posting a photo, but it might be too homoerotic for even the RHET (is such a thing even possible?)

    If lifting for hypertrophy what percentage of your 1RM should you be lifting for your working sets?

    It's not about %'s of 1RM.

    Lift so that you're failing on your last rep of 3x8-12 or whatever your goal rep range is.

    Then lift more next time.

    I think "sucks, but works" might be the way to go. Get rid of the spare tire so I can button my suits again and continue with the gainz.

    You can express any weight as a percentile of your 1rm, just sayin. He probably just needs an estimate of what to start with. I'd start with 80% as a guess.

    why are some non strength sport coaches so fucking dumb when it comes to their athletes in the weight room. had some track and field chick ask me to check her fs technique and she couldn't even rack the bar correctly. looked at her program and sure enough it was full of different classic lift variations she had no clue on what they were. according to coach her technique was 'solid'.
