    I never really go to absolute failure on anything under 6 reps and even if I am going over that I only take the last set to failure.

    Yea, I very rarely train to failure. Although I'm not doing bodbuilding so that could be why.

    Flame what were those deadlift socks you linked to earlier? Also, I'd hate to support a cross-shit brand, but does anyone have experience with moxy socks?

    I went to do some googling after you brought up Men's Physique. Tbh looks ghey, but also the body type is much easier to achieve.

    jarude, they selling those on rougefitness.

    Been at 165 comfortably

    PR is 185 (something like 3x3 with a spotter)

    I kind of hurt / overworked my chest during dumbbell chest day on SPBR. Tomorrow is chest day again after taking last W/Fri off. Chest has a sharp sore like pain when I stretch in certain directions. Right now it's only when I shrug and hunch forward a little and can feel like my chest is tearing/ sharp. Was doing something like 60lb DB incline 3x5 then 60lb DB flat bench 3x8 bench last Monday then experienced chest pain in the morning Wednesday.

    Kind of sucks b/c I tried curling 70lb barbell yesterday on squat day and may have reopen the chest pain again due to the pull up when curling and utilizing some of my chest. =\

    FWIW my bro is telling me I am tripping the fuck out and I should shut up about hurting when it is obviously just sore. My lack of protein is causing DOMS (?) and not recuperating quick enough.

    I was about to go in for an ECHO b/c i thought it was athlete heart related lol (0). The radiation scares me a bit.

    edit:
    5'9.5 and hovering under 155lb right now. Trying to hit one 160 and maintain. Bro telling me to go 175 then cut. I weighed 170 back in high school before loosing the weight in college. ha!

    In other news, my bro wants to get his arms big enough so it covers up his chest and torso from the side view. I say he is about 1/3 to a little less than 1/2 there. When he told me this I turned around to the mirrors covering the walls in the gym and looked at myself from the side view. I lol'd in my head. #RHET

    Ummm does it fucking matter whether you call it a catch or a receive?

    I dunno what Rippetoe says. I know Pendlay hates the power-clean, but I did manage to find an article that agrees with me on the site.

    http://www.pendlay.com/Olympic-Weightlifting-The-Task-at-Hand_df_98.html

    and this article is exactly what I'm talking about "the retreat of the hips"

    you need to actually read what I wrote.

    I fixed my powerclean by making my receive stance the same as my clean receive stance. Having them different is what was causing the fuckup.

    Nice mentality. I was waiting for you to go that route.
