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.

    Yea, no one knows how to do a proper pull up now adays. And Especially now that crossfit is doing whatever they do to do the pullup.

    I started doing cardio at the gym recently. I'm kind of like those women who come in and do nothing but walk on the treadmill. Anyhow, the best part about going to the gym is getting to watch everyone else being an idiot. Saw a guy doing pull-ups and top of his head didn't even make it to hand level and he didn't lockout at bottom. It was the quarter squat of pull-ups. Totally ridiculous. It's also fun to watch everyone grab way too big of dumbbells and proceed to swing/throw them up rather than actually lift the weight.

    Dead hang, chin over the bar which might be a little lower than what you consider proper form. It was college so I was probably kipping for the last few but it was still more than I can do now even though I'm much stronger overall (though I'm also 10 lbs heavier).

    Dunno. It's been a solid 5 or so months since I've written pullups out of my program. I was doing em with bands when I did them.

    I hereby designate RHET as a no-lie zone. Every time you lie or bend the truth, someone loses their gains.

    This is amazing, some highlights

    "Kendrick J. Farris I don't feel like have any fans, because I view you guys as friends and friends don't always see eye to eye which is fine. So if you don't want to be my friend that's fine too lol"

    "Kendrick J. Farris Aybar if it's stupid and bitter what does that make you for reading then commenting?"

    "Kendrick J. Farris David I wish your father pulled out"


    guy is actually retarded, posts lol every second post.

    It's just gonna end with him giving a false apology to the "fans" in the end to appease and not lose his sponsors.

    i'm not saying he's wrong but the entire mindset of "lol roids" of why the US or some other non 3rd world country sucks in weightlifting is fucking ridiculous

    It's a lame excuse but it's sorta true. I'm surprised USA has even decent lifters, considering how few people give a shit about the sport.

    I was agreeing with you.

    I use to train with someone who was on the USA team. He told me he took drugs but couldn't afford to do it properly because he was making about negative dollars competing in the sport.
