after 1 year of deadlifting i have just realized i have to squeeze the buttocks at the top

Fortunately for me, I found this site prior to BB.com. I remember being a young lad, reading through the ass worship thread in SAMA. I was disappointed when I started reading this site again to see it was gone.

I avoid talking about lifting or any type of training with most people (in the real world)… Because at times their total lack of knowledge shows. So much so that i just want to tell them to please shut the hell up especially when they try to come across as knowledgeable . :rage:

I just had impetigo. I’m a 44 year old man and I had impetigo. It was nasty. I had to shave my beard off. I wouldn’t leave the house for a couple of days. Not sure if it was due to the impetigo or shaving…


#1186

All you, boss

:joy::joy::joy::joy:


#1187

I must have missed this while I was asleep. TBH, I average eight, anything less and I am a POS. It might be an age thing.


#1188

Definitely the shaving. Impetigo may be gross, but leaving the house without a beard on is just shameful


#1189

I thought old people needed less sleep?


#1190

I don’t know if we need less sleep, but we definitely get less sleep.


#1191

Habituation is a wonderful thing. I know at 25 I needed more sleep than I do at 31.


#1192

Bwahahaha.

I’ll check that out. Right after I take a nap.

Seriously, I think you’re right, unless you are training, then I think you need more sleep for recovery. Adding LBM past forty is a mothafucka, and food and sleep are hyooge.


#1193

HAHAHAHAHAH…this is soo true.


#1194

Yep. The only reason I’m not 225# ripped at age 54 is that I have to get up every 3-4 hours to pee.

Hey guys im 14 and a half i dont want to stunt my growth but i want to gain muscle and strength. I have access to gym five days a week and need a good program. I want to get ripped and have nice abbs as well.
I have a 4 pack but a little fat covering them its not very visible. I weigh 67 kilos amd have decent muscle already. I want to be able to run fast and jump high, have better long jump. Just good cardiovascular fitness as well as being ripped.

Create a new thread specifically for your question.

-I absolutely hate it when basically everyone refers to a tabata as taking EXACTLY 4 minutes…the last 10 secs don’t count ,dumbfucks! since, well…THAT’S THE END POINT!

-I’m not convinced most people really need de-loads. ‘Contrast’ weeks (maybe) Ie: If you normally do low reps you do a week of just high reps an actual de-load, though, no, I’m not convinced.

-I think most supplements are complete garbage/mostly a placebo effect!


#1198

I’m thinking troll. Another similar question posted in a training log very recently.


#1199

I think the importance of strong biceps in help developing a big Bench has been overly down played for years.


#1200

Can you elaborate? (I’m not challenging your statement, just trying to understand the role you see for the biceps in bench press.)


#1201

Stabilization on the eccentric portion of the lift…
