  1. Here's my entry Squat -150kg DL - 190kg Bench - 100kg BW - 73kg
  2. I'll put up attempts as usual.
  3. Thought I'd resurrect this topic from the previous forums. Discussion about good metal for lifting or just good metal. Don't need to be too picky. Might get people to discover new bands to listen to. Still love this song for heavy squats or deadlifts. Pretty much the whole invictus album is good workout music. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bihXsPmkjGU Stone sour's great too. Dang media limit.. :/
  4. If this doesn't make you PR, nothing will.
  5. Definitely worth the watch. Check it out guys and gals.
  6. Lift The World: Weightlifting Documentary

    But I've already seen it.
  7. Can confirm, I overtrained and am now more jacked than Roman statues. Overtraining, not even once.
  8. Stalled Bench Press. What To Do?

    I got mine moving by switching to paused bench and concentrating on heavy singles. Benching only once per week seems too low for me though, I'd simply add one or two bench sessions per week if I were in your position.
  9. Is Saturated Fat Really Bad For You?

    Here's one recent study that concluded that saturated fat intake and saturated fat levels in the blood are not related. "Effects of Step-Wise Increases in Dietary Carbohydrate on Circulating Saturated Fatty Acids and Palmitoleic Acid in Adults with Metabolic Syndrome"http://www.plosone.org/article/info%3Adoi%2F10.1371%2Fjournal.pone.0113605
  10. Squatting Double Your Weight

    Squatted 2xBW in about 18 months of lifting. After that progress has ground into a halt though. Had a 2 year stint where I couldn't increase it at all and in the last two years I've increased it to only around 2.16xBW.
  11. Seeing as the point of wilks score is to normalize the weight lifted at different BWs we simply sum up the three wilk scores, no? And on that note, Ferrous, my 160kg squat is missing from that grand total score and from the Two-for score. BW = 78 kg Deadlift: 190 kg / 418 lb, 131.84 wilks Bench: 100 kg / 220 lb, 69.39 wilks BW = 81 kg Squat: 160 kg / 353 lb, 108.38 wilks Combined Two For: 240.22 wilks Grand Total: 450 kg / 992 lb, 309.61 wilks
  12. Here's DL and bench entries. DL 170kg, 180kg, 190kg Bench 90kg, 95kg, 100kg BW - 78kg --- BW = 78 kg Deadlift: 190 kg / 418 lb, 131.84 wilks Bench: 100 kg / 220 lb, 69.39 wilks Two Fer: 201.23 kg Grand Total: 290 kg / 639.3 lb
  13. Putting The Head In Meathead

  14. First entry for the squat, 1x160kg @ 81kg. Let me know if that was too high. I'll try the other lifts later this month and attempt to improve my pitiful squat. ---- From Berin: Good lift (160kg was third squat in video), 108.38 Wilkes.
  15. Is Saturated Fat Really Bad For You?

    Here's one from 2014 "Conclusion: Current evidence does not clearly support cardiovascular guidelines that encourage high consumption of polyunsaturated fatty acids and low consumption of total saturated fats." (http://annals.org/article.aspx?articleid=1846638) "RRs for coronary outcomes in prospective cohort studies of dietary fatty acid intake. Size of the data marker is proportional to the inverse of the variance of the RR. RR = relative risk." http://annals.org/data/Journals/AIM/929862/6ff1_Figure_1_RRs_for_coronary_outcomes_in_prospective_cohort_studies_of_dietary_fatty_acid_int.jpeg
  16. Awesome Videos

  17. And now backed with science. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3323922/ "Fatigue is a Brain-Derived Emotion that Regulates the Exercise Behavior to Ensure the Protection of Whole Body Homeostasis This article traces the evolution of our modern understanding of how the CNS regulates exercise specifically to insure that each exercise bout terminates whilst homeostasis is retained in all bodily systems. The brain uses the symptoms of fatigue as key regulators to insure that the exercise is completed before harm develops. These sensations of fatigue are unique to each individual and are illusionary since their generation is largely independent of the real biological state of the athlete at the time they develop."
  18. How You Feel Is A Lie

    Yeah, they touch upon that a bit in the article referencing studies that found muscles were recruited only up to 60% in a max effort hill sprint or somesuch, haven't checked out the reference studies yet.
  19. I S P W L - Open Talk

    Week is plenty of time to get three vids of one's lifts imo. Just need to have a thread with flashing lights and endless popups letting people know there even IS a mockup meet going. Anyway I'm in for the comp.
