    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.

    Tried to get through 1.5lbs of chicken breast in one sitting today. Started gagging around 18oz in, tapped out at 21oz. So close [​IMG]

    Don't you know your body can only absorb 5g of protein at a time?

    All homo, please.

    I hate bulking and feeling like a fat fuck when I'm not. But I am at 225 lbs now and doing 3x3 295 lbs bench press, comfortably. I decided to just do a lower comfortable weight with squats and deads from now on.... I was getting a blocky midsection trying to going up in weight with the two. But I am at 385lbs deadlift and 315 lb squat. So, I kind of made it out of the bench press as much as I squat situation.

    Yeah, this all correct. At 6'3 with long femurs and short torso, I have to sit waaaay back to mimmick Charlys form. You can see it in the form check I uploaded a while back. Keeping my chins vertical is no problem; it's just a matter of a wide enough stance and opeining up the hips a lot, shoving the knees way out when you initiate the squat. Like Hendrix say, the problem for someone with my build is that you can't keep an upright torso with that technique if you're doing low bar.

    Eventually I found that my low back took over the movement too much with that form and that I didn't utilize my quads enough. I've begin to sit a bit more straight down with more upright torso and not as extreme wide stance and it felt a bit better. Still a legit low bar sitting back but with more forward knee travel. I think I'd be right between Charly and Coldsnap in those frames.

    Yeah...I've sort of decided to not really push going up on the weight on squats and deadlifts. I am such an easy gainer in quads and a slow gainer in chest/delts that I fear becoming disproportionate. I also get fridge-y on bulks. I think I'm okay with my squat/deadlift #s for the time being and will instead try and add detail rather than mass/strength.

    Super happy with my strength progress so far. DL's making the best progress, hoping I can hit 405 at 135 in the near future.

    Trying to gain weight while swimming a lot is tough. I need to go on a full donut bulk.

    Cool. I'm a pog in the AF, so basically have no reason to work out, but do it anyway. Always astonished at how out of shape a lot of service members (all branches) are on my post.

    If you ever go to Lewis-McChord you'll be astonished at how thick, solid, and tight everyone is.

    At Sheppard everyone was fat
    At Langley everyone was decently in shape
    At McConnell everyone was fat
    At Walter Reed everyone is juicy
    At Sam Houston everyone is DYEL skinny
