    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.

    That is true, didn't really think about it. I guess I was too impressed by the squat. I'm so used to seeing the big multi-ply stuff that I can't seems to look for single ply anymore.

    Sweet, chiro said I have good hips but just a tight psoas. That psoas release feels so good. Thought I had hip cancer for a second

    Also mirin Tigerprawn gains and it makes me regret going off SS even more. Not saying that SPBR is a bad routine but it didn't work for me that well.

    Thanks guys, but I still have a long long long long long way to go before I even get close to guys like TK and Charly strength and aesthetic wise. I do think the squat volume helps a ton and the fact I was basically hitting PRs every other day by 5lb increments until I stalled out.

    I didn't take pics of myself before at all, but I wish I did. All I have were candid pics to go off of and my legs before were crazy slim. You don't realize how much you've changed until you see an old photo.

    Now I'm a 165lb manlet (granted bigger 165lb manlet than before) trying to claw my way back up in this bulk.

    Also seriously considering not lifting for at least the rest of the year if not more. My elbow is so infuriating it's really disheartening. I've tried every coldsnap rubber dildo thera whatever and nothing fucking works. All I get is OK one day next day cant even touch the bar

    Any comments on sizing the rehband elbow sleeves? Same dilly-yo as the knees; size down?

    OK... did you follow their sizing advice or did you size down, as is the case with the knee sleeves?

    Elbow measurement comes in at 28cm so I think I'll go for the medium (26-28cm).

    I can't comment on elbow sleeves since I've never used em, but taking time off to heal, as much as you go fuckin stir-crazy and nuts, is a game changer. Before my trip to the EU (Nearly month long trip) I was plagued with rotator cuff pain on my left side. Always kinda pushed through it, but it was dumb during OHP and I either bailed or made it worse.

    Month off on vacation with no lifting and I'm pretty much 100% now and it feels fuckin great. If your elbow is that bad I'd take the time needed for it to heal so you can come back stronger.

    I know this is a dead horse but everyone I've seen that has elbow tendinitis has zero internal rotation in that shoulder.
