    If you're benching and ON EVERY REP you pin yourself and your spotter has to lift the fucking bar off your chest, don't add more weight onto it. Jesus people, is it that hard a concept?

    Also I failed on my max set of front squats so that pissed me off. Just couldn't get up out of the hole. :fu:

    Disregard trousers, wear cut off sweat shorts so people can mire your aesthetic legs. Summer uniform will be cut off sweat shorts, converse and a vest. Basically what I wear to the gym, but without the belt.

    Lanragian what kind of training did you do before the oly lifting training? I remember you said you had like a 220kg deadlift or something so i'm guessing standard strength training?

    What sorcery is THIS?

    I bought a pair of APC's right before getting serious with squats/deadlifting and they don't fit at all now. I've been stuck with my Uniqlo's which, as fuji mentioned, are a bit stretchier.

    Just take a pair of APC's into an APC store and boom new pair at cost?

    Meh, this argument is really light in the loafers. It really doesn't explain why volume is necessary to be performed with high risk / technical lifts or what the value would even be. Alright, there is some value to a high VO2 max, but there is no compelling argument why one should train it with an Oly lift. I understand it is part of the Xfit Mantra and all, same with kipping.

    That's fair. The same basic concept works fine with squats/deadlifts. I'd never program high volume Olympic lifts for anyone who didn't have very solid form. Avoiding injury should always be priority number one.

    Hmmm...I don't know if my calves with fit in those and I like the color! I am cursed with giant (18–19") calves and actually have to size up just to fit my legs in slimmer fitting pants. What's the true waist size? I know they tend to run small.

    Trust me, you don't want 'em. It makes clothing are to shop for at times, not to mention the constant barrage of conversations that start with "I'm not gay or anything, but your calves...", it's kinda like that early episode of Entourage when Drama contemplates buying calf implants and then asked the random dude at a party about his. I am that random dude and you'd be surprised that majority of guys who ask me about them at the gym are black and my usual response is "They're real and they're spectacular!" and that goes right over their heads.

    For aesthetics, I wish mine were bigger, but whatever.

    Have made the decision to try driving 90 minutes each way to work every day rather than stay in a hotel and eat their shit unhealthy food and use their shit gym and just lose weight all week. Only have to do this for a few more weeks and have a work vehicle so doesnt cost me anything. Its gonna be shit though, i will literally get up, drive to work, drive home, prepare food for the next day, go to gym, sleep.
