    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.

    #highandsmallarmholeproblems

    Just tried on a J+ Uniqlo coat and the armholes were so high and tight that the whole shoulder sat wrong. Feels like the upper back and delt area is difficult to get right on structured coats and jackets for people who lift.

    I thought he was referring to the girls friend. If it's his own friend he has the right to slap the shit out of them the next time they see each other.

    Conceptionst, have you tried the Our Legacy coats? I have a couple in XXL and they fit good. You are probably (alot) more built than me, but still.

    I tried one of their melton jackets a while back and ended up selling it. It just didn't fit right. Sizing up would have been awkward. I was 10 lbs lighter at the time as well.

    No, I haven't but thanks for the rec.
    I am still pretty slim with 200 lbs @ 6'3 and if you are a double XL you are def bigger than me. I am barely an XL. Just broad shoulders.

    ^ Im usually a XL (in OL and otherwise), the OL coats are sized slim. Im 6´4 /195ish , pretty slim but wide shoulders + some lats, which always is an issue with high/small armholes.

    pathetic gains checking in :slayer: Although I stopped using a weightlifting belt so I guess I can't complain that I haven't hit a PR in awhile because everything is beltless.

    The only gains I've made are my now giant manlet titties...[​IMG]

    Been doing tons of hips, back and leg stretches. My back pain is totally gone! Worked out at a local gym. Flat bench (reped with 2 plates but feels lot lighter than 225 lbs), conventional pull (reped 2 plates and NO PAIN), a bunch of back work out and felt pretty damn good! This was a much needed rest!

    Also, anyone on here who has/had back problems but was able to use Tempurpedic to help with back pain?

    The PL meet didn't go as planned.
    Only got my opener for bench. 15 lbs PR but had hoped for something like 25-30 pounds judging by how well training has been.
    At least I think I know what my weak points are. Can also get back to bringing up my leg and knee strength again during the new training cycle.

    Tough break, man. Sometimes it comes together on the day, but unfortunately sometimes it doesnt. Did you open too high maybe?

    My 2nd meet was yesterday, and thankfully it was in the former category. Went 9/9 totaling 557.5kg/1229lbs @ 82.8kg/183lbs. PR squat of 210kg and PR deadlift of 230kg, bench stayed pretty flat over the three months so really have to put my thinking cap on about that, but i knew going in.
