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.

    I still don't get what the physiological basis for CNS fatigue is other than vague psycho/neuro ideas that don't seem like they should apply. I'm sure connectionist has done a lot of reading around the subject.

    I wish I could get back into training with a group of guys like I did last year when I started lifting. Feels like there's no adrenaline and getting pumped during my lifts, sorta just do them nonchalant now adays..

    bene i feel bad the waifs were saying you're too swole for schneider. Imo schneider is one of the few brands that are good for swole people.

    waifs have a very particular view of how built guys should dress, i.e. they should hide their gainz because working out is gauche

    I think it's weird that the overwhelming majority of fashion brands only have ectomorphs in mind.

    I've failed 3 deadlifts lately due to my lower back not able to stand up straight. Is it possible my rows are exhausting it to the point that it can't handle the deadlifts? Should I just swap the order, or is it probably something way more serious than that?

    Why are you pulling after rows? I would do the compound movement first. Are your rows also so heavy that it extremely taxes your lower back?

    I dont think ss fits me well, then again I'm kinda short so sizing up is not really an option and tts has too narrow shoulders

    I also think benes would benefit greatly from just better pic quality/angle

    What i thought people were saying is that you'll have to work more with proportions, as the clothes will sit differently on a built guy. Imo, its not about hiding that you're big, but turning it from a potential problem to an advantage.

    Take Schneider: many of his tops are almost cropped length, and have a straight cut with no taper from the chest to hem. That will prob not look good on a thick built guy with a big drop.

    I think there is a time n place to show gains

    Id personally prefer to have the option. If I am presenting to VPs or interviewing for a job/loan/we I want the ability to look like a normal person. Not too big and not all gaunt and starved in the face and veiny and shit.

    It may differ from sector to sector and from country to country, but from my experience as long as you are dressed within the confines of the dress code and look professional, no one gives a fuck whether you are the rock or a marathon runner.

    Last time I tried on Schneider shirt, I almost ripped the sleeves off the armhole. And this was 4 years ago when I was 175 pounds.

    I've said this before but one of the biggest issues I've found is that most designers don't know how to translate their fits to bigger sizes.
    As you go up from an M or L to XL they basically just add an inch to the chest and half inch to the shoulder, or whatever other arbitrary number they come up with.
    I mean I understand it (it's a bigger size, so lets just make it with bigger dimensions) but it doesn't really work at all. I've had a bunch of shit in Large that would fit pretty perfect if there was just a little more room in the chest and upper arms, but then when I go up to the XL it just looks fucking weird (and usually they don't let out the sleeves at all so it's still sausage time).

    I didn't think they did, but I don't usually fail on my second warmup so I'm assuming that's the cause. Originally was just following the order GSLP had them in.
