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.

    Run some hills and take back your life obvs. Move north of vag or whatever that phrase he likes is. Would rather move towards vag personally.

    Only posting this for a few RHET laughs... so wrong.

    Nike Tech Pack came out. Amazing slim fitting sweats, really nice details, good shit... However, I guess I'm not a medium in these... I knew they'd be slim, but not this slim. Back to Nike they go.

    So lets talk about it you do use straps, what're you doing for grip and forearm work

    Farmers walks
    Static holds
    Wrist curls (?)

    Also I could see straps being good for doing heavy shrugs with

    Mmmm, just bought two quarts of homemade chocolate brownie ice cream from grassfed cows from a local farm.


    Those look like they could be awesome, maybe a large.

    I'm prob just being a jerk about straps. My coach recently gave me shit for using knee sleeves and wrist wraps on my 3 x 5 working sets. It's probably a viewpoint thing, but his point was to use them on heavy singles and doubles up to competition and use them at the meet, essentially making training harder but game day easier.

    This is how every pair of pants I buy fits, more or less. Either way too tight in the ass or too loose in the calves, and my calves are pretty big nowadays. It fucking sucks.

    Did static holds from 65lb db's all the way down 5 lbs. I have a feeling I'm gonna regret the shit outta this tomorrow, but man my forearms have never felt so pumped.

    My traps are getting big fast, too. At least they feel like they are. I don't think I was really hitting them until SPBR. I've been on a roll with DB shoulder presses so today I put all my fucking soul into the one last rep so I could weight up next time. First time I've had to wrestle with a rep for like 20 seconds in a long time.

    straps are completely different from knee sleeves.

    people in strength sports use straps all the fucking time, for everyone else it's a non-issue at best.

    so i ended up meeting the head of my city's powerlifting club tonight. he's also the referee chairperson for ontario powerlifting and (i think) an int'l ref. he gave me some pointers on bench and judged my depth on a few lifts which was pretty nice of him. he's training for the worlds coming up and has offered to let me train with him anytime which is awesome.

    I'm sure if you do a google search someone will have put up some images or a vid. It's difficult to explain verbally.

    disregard wrist curls, do db/bb static holds or farmer walks. plate pinches are good too. for straps, make sure you are starting the wrap from underneath the bar instead of over.

    Bouldering is probably the most fun way to develop forearms.

    an equally effective if not more fun way is to kidnap foreign children and hold on to them with your hands to stop them from escaping

    Maybe too much cardio with all the running away from the popo it entails.
