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.

    Damn that's pretty good. That's Jason Blaha level at 2/3rds his weight lol. Can we get Coldsnap banned for 2 months or sth for failing to reach 1k after I gave him over a year to do it, since he doesn't want to support disabled veterans?

    These people gave their arms, legs, and emotional health for your freedom, Coldsnap. And you're going to squander the freedom without reaching 1k and giving a little something back? :bored:

    Any dog peeps here? My girlfriend's fucking dog keeps us up all night whenever she brings it over to my house. I think it's because she lives in quiet house and I love in an apartment building where you can hear the neighbors walking around upstairs and on a somewhat busy street. It constantly tries looking out the windows, and unfortunately I have one right by my bed which means she walks on me to get to it. I have blinds closed and blackout curtains drawn and nothing. The fucking thing walks around my apartment whining and trying to see outside.

    What the fuck am I supposed to do. About to tell her it's not allowed over anymore.

    left for a few hours and rhet got all bloody. darn.

    this site is fucking cool: http://www.zygotebody.com/

    anatomy brahs

    edit: it is my mother fucking brachioradialis. FUCK that thing. seriously.

    edit again: which is fucking with my extensor digiti minimi. and extensor carpi ulnaris. and every other fucking thing in there. i'd love to open my arm up to see how messed up shit is in there.

    serious question, maybe tk you can answer this because ***youre a doctor***. does it make any sense that the pain i feel when performing a zottman curl motion is vastly reduced if i'm moving at a much slower tempo? is that a thing?

    this.


    don't read that much into what I poasted. I just think you don't really need weightlifting shoes if you're doing work on the machines and the like. Especially if you need some sort of custom orthotics a better move is footwear with a flat and a relatively firm sole without impact cushioning, i.e. not running shoes.

    Thats very good progress.

    I don't think people should get caught up in how long they've been lifting in regards to your total / aesthetics atm, etc. The long term perspective is more important. I mean, its not always best to progress as fast as you can. There's an injury-risk trade off that comes with it. Lifting is a marathon; the better lifter is in most cases the most consistent one that has managed to stay injury free and kept up with some form of progression the whole time. That said, most people can work out more than they think and there's time where you should push very hard. I just don't think its wise to go balls to the walls all the time, as some do.

    I'm not saying this towards anyone in theis thread, but when people say "I have only been lifting for x years", you never know where they start counting. Is it when they picked up their first weight, is it when they got serious, or is it when they started to know what they were doing? I have been lifting in some form for prob 5 years, but didn't know anything about how to train smart until 1-2 years ago, and I've only been training for powerlifting specifically for 4 months.

    So I generally refrain from giving medical advice outside of work but I'll answer this somewhat vaguely. Any time you change the velocity of a movement it changes the biomechanics of that movement. Different muscle groups are utilized to different extents and stressors can be distributed differently. The movement arc is likely changed as well.

    This is why you shouldn't be giving advice.

    I guess you refer to that I only been lifting smart for 1-2 years?

    I'm aware I've made some questionable advice in the past (haven't most people?). You made a post a while back where you said you also went through a phase early on where you thought you had the answers (nothing against you - just pointing out its a phase many people go through). I read a lot and consider myself pretty well-versed in the theoretical aspects of strength training, while I am lacking experience. Almost all advice I give is heavily backed up by other influential people/lifters. So the advice I give is not solely coming from me. Either way, I think I'm more humble now and I'm pretty confident in my ability about where I can contribute and when I should not. You can agree or disagree with that and thats fine with me. I can't really say much more than that.

    You've been powerlifting for four months and have a coach programming for you. A lot of the advice you give is based on programs people are saying are superior because they make money if people buy their book or hire them. I have been reading about this shit for years. I have a fo heated copy of super training in my room and the best advice I have heard and will ever give is you need to experiment to find what works for you, not blanket system advice regurgitated from an article.

    Yeah, thats true and your absolutely right about it.

    Some methods are however backed up with solid studies and science and I think those are the ones that are valuable (you have to check the validity and reliability of the studies though). Also, a certain method can just be one way, not the only way. Its like "you can try this" and then determine if it works for you or not. Otherwise, I fully agree with you.
