    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.

    Those aren't legit numbers. It was to demonstrate that two men weighing the same, the significantly shorter of the two should be able to lift more.
    - he squats 465 and I squat 365

    He is no doubt stronger and I'm not trying to claim my lifts are harder because I'm taller. Just trying to satiate the curiosity after a discussion we had over the weekend.

    LOL Fuji... I'm not one to discount anything (at least not quickly), but I can't wrap my head around that.

    I haven't seen a tool to normalize weight by height, only weight (Wilks, etc). I have never seen it suggested that height is beneficial, longer levers and what not. Even if you do find a tool to normalize by height given assumptions about levers, any random individual would still deviate from those assumptions. One of you could always complain about a longer femur, less thoracic mobility, lower test, endo/ecto, and so on.

    A rough guide I have read is 5lbs / inch - so you are "underweight" in the comparison by 30 lbs AND mechanically disadvantaged.

    Have my annual PT test next week, hoping to get 75 pushups in a minute, 70 crunches in a minute, and 9:45 run time for a 1.5 mile.

    Stopped by Dan Green's gym on the way home from work tonight. The place is actually pretty nice... like half PL gym/half crossfit box. It's actually quite reasonably priced and apparently Dan's usually there most weeknights helping out members and giving pointers (considering joining because of this alone). There were only a few people lifting, but I recognized most of them from local meets.

    Yeah, wtf. You should def switch right away.
    Just lifting with guys way stronger than you and getting some pointers will help you a lot for sure.

    pretty sure you really have no idea what you're talking about nowadays

    Simmons' weightlifting advice, now there's a joke.

    There's a guy who spams up a few FB pages for my neighborhood with ads for his personal training services. Last night he came into my gym, and I watched him try to squat 135, get half a rep, then move to the smith machine to knock out the rest of his set. At only $20/session, he's a bargain.
