    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.

    Haha I've done that a few times. Feels great.

    Quad chicken bowl at Chipotle is becoming a straight dumb expensive habit I need to break. I need to take a night out of the week and just prep my own damn chicken, rice, beans, lettuce, and guac.

    Out of nowhere I can no longer do push-ups because they hurt my wrists. Oddly enough, no other exercise bothers them. Literally just woke up one day and realized that they now kill my wrists. WTF?

    Patagonia stand up shorts, the short inseam ones. If you man enough. They will last your lifting career.

    ^TBH... And I'll get some flack for this, but I only work out in these tapered TNF pants I love and sweats that I cut into shorts (except my bootyrip video).

    These just look like normal shorts cotton shorts?


    Wouldst mind slim tapered pants, but generally prefer shorts. Sweats can be nice for deadlift days.

    All my shorts now are just super baggy, catching my knees on squats, binding around foam roller.

    Yup, that's what makes them so awesome. Also crazy amount of hip room and big leg opening for juicy legs.

    Cheers. I tried it out today. Was able to pull 275 fairly easily whereas I was rounding my back at 285 doing conventional. I'm really liking the smaller range of motion. Gonna run it for 4-6 weeks

    My gym is down to one 2.5lb plate. One. I told them about it, they better get more, I'm sick of plating up 10 lbs and making faster gain.
