    [​IMG] Functional! Empower yourself! But what if a 245lb man laid on top of you and told you he was going go balls-deep inside of you if you couldn't push him away? Seems pretty functional to me.

    @conceptionist linked to a study saying protein synthesis stopped a couple days after your workout. Guys on gear have it last longer. A 2-day split is all you need, 3 day max.

    He's wrong.

    Are you lifting on a platform? If so that's what it's for.

    Nah in the summer when i was blasting hard as fuck and pulling every day. I don't deadlift anymore, most recent was 405x10 deadstop. I doubt ill ever really deadlift again, not within my goals now, i just front squat for legs and do some lunges.

    So now we are defining functional as just your goals, so everything is functional. Me wanting to be 190lb and 8% with a 27 inch waist so i can fuck sluts is functional because thats my goal? So what is non functional training for me, being ugly?

    You pulled everyday?! Why don't you deadlift anymore? Isn't it a waste after hitting 550 and just cold turkey?! Did something happened? Touched by someone?

    every 2 days that was an exaggeration. I got scared walking up to that much weight every time i lifted and i'd get really upset if I didn't PR because when you're blasting and don't PR it feels like whats the point.

    Have you came off of the juice? I mean not cycling but actually came off of the stuff just to see where you were strength wise?

    For the general public who has no intention of getting ripped or big, cardio provides more health benefits and generally less hassle than strength training. A little bit of strength training (maybe one or two short sessions per week) and they're pretty much sorted, for general health goals that is.

    I don't know if less bodyfat is a good goal either. There is plenty of examples of people with low body fat that have worse health and sports/cardio/strength performance than those who are a bit fat.

    If I wouldn't have been interested in powerlifting and aesthetics, I'd just train to maximize my health and then do whatever that leads me to that goal.

    Have you ever stopped asking dumb questions, just to see how it feels?

    First of all i dont cycle i blast and cruise, which means i never fully come off just drop down to low levels to let my body recover which is cruising. Recently had to up my cruise dose actually because i couldnt get hard for shit. And no I would never put myself through the ridiculous emotional trauma of coming off after a while of blasting and the size loss. I have a variety of serious and dangerous mental health issues, coming off gear is something I would never consider doing until I'm like 50 and those have hopefully subsided.

    Oh but I pulled 455 natty at about 175.

    425 but back in the day

    In response to the he's wrong statement earlier, dropping weight or coming down like Fuji did here is fine right?

    Dude was basically telling me to do touch and go, in which you do come down a bit more slowly.

    (Cause that's what i thought)

    I'm interested in this answer as well. I'm transitioning to a home gym soon and I've been scouring Craigslist off and on, but nothing good has come up in my area. I was considering just buying a few sets of 45 lbers, but then I realized that my wife is probably going to need some lighter plates. Those Rogue sets with an extra couple pairs of 45 might be the way to go unless somebody has a different recommendation.

    I have the 10lb and 25lbs rogue bumper plates for my girlfriend and they are fine. They aren't eleiko but they work.
