Lets share some bullets of knowledge or some truths you all have learned over the years. I'll start:
king of all lifts is the conventional deadlift, NOT the squat(unless you have monkey arms)
if you want to look like a powerlifter, train like one, if you want to look like a bodybuilder, train like one, if you want to look like a professional athlete, good luck, those guy's full time job is working their body. every nfl body-beautiful who shares his weight room routine in Men's Health is not showing you all the field work and drills, etc. that he is doing the other 4 hours a day 6 days a week.
big overhead press IMHO is more impressive than a big bench press, but the guy with the (raw) big bench press is probably gonna look a lot more jacked than the guy with the big overhead press.
you should not be shrugging in the rack more weight than you can deadlift from the floor.
big backs are to strength athletes what big guns and pecs are to bodybuilders.
a MAN should be intelligent, assertive, and STRONG(physically and mentally)
unless you are a powerlifter or an olympic lifter, and/or you are NOT doing deadlifts, the front squat is a better movement for your legs than a back squat.
the best routine for you is the one you have not tried yet
everything works, but nothing works forever/all the time.
when you stop learning, you stop growing
you pay for the rest of your life what you do in your 20's
thats it for me now. your turn!
