    I don't think it's tendonitis, that stuff usually gets better as you get moving. I took some pictures of my bar position and I think it's just too low as it's sitting on my deltoid, going to try moving it up a bit and see.

    Yea same here. I recently had to reset at 135lbs. I've written it out. I don't have the proper scapula mobility and upward rotation strength to do it correctly now. Just going to do a ton of other movements and press 95lbs with good form until I have it.

    Saw this kid in the gym I go to school with. He's a Jersey Shore bro we make fun of all the time. I really wish I knew more sane, normal people who lift, not the GTL crowd (though I don't think this kid has the "L" part of it down yet).

    It'd be great to find a trainer like that.

    Who knows that they're doing and is at least knowledgeable about gear.

    Haha, I thought it was funny when like 2 weeks after I get him to work out he starts asking about gear. I was like, wow way to jump in head first. Never lift a weight in your life then want to start cycling. But at 36 or so that's prob a smart idea, if you really want to get big.

    I don't really know why you'd need a trainer to tell you how to cycle, you can get a pretty good understanding of it after a few weeks of reading, especially for a beginner. Solid lolz at cycling and only looking mildly toned though.


    Set of 10 with 55lb on chin ups today, felt good man, was only hoping for like 5 or 6 because I havent done weighted in a while.

    I'm 34 and didn't lift until my 30s. Slow gains are slow as fuck.

    501s. If there's a winners/marshalls nearby see if you can find out when they put out the new arrivals and keep checking. I've found selvedge rinse fits >$50 a couple of times.

    Just tried a squat with my heels on 5lb plates. Coldsnap was right. Will be ordering shoes some time today. :nodding:

    *edit* What's proper grip width on ohp?

    Yup, they were like $69 at rogue.

    Shoulder width. EXTERNALLY ROTATED shoulders creating torque.

    Thanks dude. I have surprisingly decent ohp form then, doing all those things. Sometimes get elbow flair as I fatigue but trying to control it.


    According to this guy, the powerlifts start compressing at around 200lb squat :confused: Plus rogue is clearing out the old version, new ones are supposed to be just a bit stiffer I think. Also .6" vs .75". Doesn't sound like a lot but that's a 25% increase.

    I may just spend a little more... I like nice things :hide:

    Was strongly considering adipowers actually :lookaround:

    brb shoes cost more than I can squat in pounds

    Although, with coupon at eastbay, they're not too bad actually. And I'd certainly never need another pair...
