    Ugh this almost makes me want to try and purchase denim again.

    Been wearing the same pair of 514's(34x30) for a year now. They're beat to hell. Maybe it's time to move on.

    Denim is out there and it's cheaper than ever since you can buy directly from japan with free shipping. I pay no more than $130 a pair and I have a few nice pairs.

    I bet you can't do 1RM because you have a broken back. Quit being so condescending and get off of my back.

    might be time to give powerlifting a try for shits and giggles.

    i benched 535 last night after hitting 505 for 3 good clean reps.

    squat is back up to about 500 and i pulled 625 twice this week.

    I actually don't.

    Anyway, I'm just giving you a hard time because I thought it was hilarious that frenchie called you out on his blog after you were trying to be anonymous. I'll knock it off lol.

    Charly is a bit of a freak though. It's fun watching him progressing over the years getting really strong.

    Charly, quick technique question for you. After watching some of the strong natty pressers in the 200s(Bryce Lewis, Ben rice, etc.), you all seem to drop the bar on your upper abs...a good inch or two from your lower pec which is usually recommended. Did you always bench like that? I can't remember.

    You should def enter one.
    Just make sure you know all the rules and practice the lifts with all the commands in advance. I know one guy who missed small details and got disqualified on his first meet.

    Well, to be fair, the way I asked him those questions on his blog isn't exactly me trying to be anonymous. I thought it was funny that he was able to pick up my subtle hints and suspect it was me. [​IMG] He has good intuition. Maybe that's why plus having knowledge he is able to pull shit tons of grails.

    This is the best bench tutorial I've come across, from an IPF world record holder:

    Can you even get cut on T4? Surely you can't put your thyroid up to ridiculous levels with it like you can with T3 because your body only uses what it needs?

    Nice tutorial... buttttt... that part around 6:45 saying that you can "manipulate the concept by having a greater mass on the bench.. by deliver force into the floor with your feet" :|

    black and red romaleo's on sale for 149

    on that note, if i wanted a nicer pair of shoes in the future, how2pick between adipowers or romaleos? no way to try them on, sizing i wouldnt be worried about, but i suppose i'd have to suck up return fees to see what i liked best. white adipowers win on aesthetics and i like my adidas stuff but my frees are still the most comfortable shoes i have.

    >inb4 you need to actually be squatting to be thinking about oly shoes

    I always notice how you have excellent elbow external rotation, and that vid reminded me of it. Yours may just be more prominent since you wear elbow sleeves.

    Was feeling tired so skipped on squats and press. Pulled a PR thou. 315 x 5 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 3 x 1. As a reward for the PR, did 5 sets of 10 pull ups.

    Now, I have something to show for. [​IMG]
