    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.

    @mrchariybrown @conceptionist When you sumo pull, do you keep your shoulders in front or behind the bar? Do you keep a high hip or low hip? The reason I ask is due to my anatomy, when I keep a higher hip, my shoulders tend to place in front of the bar. When I keep my shoulders behind the bar, my hips are a bit lower but I feel my pulls are much more difficult due to a reduced leverage. But at the end of the day, does it really make that much of a difference?

    Gonna be different for everyone. As long as the bar is close to you, pull whichever way is more comfortable.

    See guys, that's how you give tips with consideration of the hundred of different builds out there. ''Stay close to the bar''. Simple.

    Could also be the pro-tip about what to do when clubbing

    Arms fucking don't grow. I'll train them now daily, fuck it, let's see what happens. 3 sets bis and tris each on leg day, 6 each on chest day. Can't be worse than nothing.

    Broke up with gf after 13 months, fuck this shit! Super motivated to get ripped now for our 01.06. challenge... because coincidentially I was asked if I was available to go on business trip to Las Vegas 01. - 04.06.

    There is such thing as hips too high and hips too low. Also your shoulders should be above the bar, not behind or in front of it.

    RHET been hit with a series of failed relationships. We will survive together, and come out more shred/vascular.

    I dunno. That doesn't seem like a whole lot of weight or reps for squatting haha

    I'll be slightly satisfied once I can get to 500x20 on squats

    Sort of having a crisis now that my graduation is coming up.
    Feel like I should have computer science instead of marketing. Will continue with MIS (since I don't have the required math for comp sci) and some stats but I could've just gone with a regular computer science degree instead and be more qualified for what I think I want to work with.

    Down 15 pounds since earlier in the month. I expect weight loss to be pretty quick at first since the last 30 I put on was a real labor of love cultivated from not lifting (or exercising) and predominantly eating like hell most of 2014 and the first two months of 2015. Still, it's refreshing to get on the scale and actually see positive progress for the first time in over a year.

    Also, I forgot how fuckin' FULL I get when eating clean.

    Any way to work on correcting my APT without stopping my current lifting prog? Lifts that I can add to my workout, or stretches I could do regularly? I'm sick of having my ass/stomach sticking out!

    Also my ass is so big if I walk without the pelvic tilt my junk totally sticks out because my huge ass pulls my shorts/pants back. How the fuck do non-APT people deal with that shit?

    is it actual anterior pelvic tilt that causes you proper posture issues and severe back pain or have you just been listening to youtube PTs too much?

    haha fair enough.

    I feel like pretty much any ab work will help in conjunction with hamstring isolation work.

    Other than that it's probably just your anatomy.
