Used to be "office manager" which meant doing all the s**t like answering the phone, making the boss money, getting sworn at by customers down the phone because the manager of the company was too lazy to order parts for white goods etc. All for less than NMW and taking him to court to get the money he owes me. I quit and will go back into working in Higher Education next week, but that's only temporary. Looking for work in a cushy office where I can go on facebook, read the newspaper and eat biscuits.

You can't choose your parents..... Genetics are genetics and there's nothing you can do to reprogram it.....

Try a Savickas press and you'll understand.

It's shoulders day today. I'm doing VG presses. Was just wondering why it's harder. No momentum?

The whole idea of a savickas press is for it to be bottom up, off pins without using a back rest. Pressing from a.pause with no tension or stretch shortening cycle, making the initial movement and the lockout more challenging. I don't think doing them.on a bench, without using the back support, rather than the floor will detract anything from the efficacy of the exercise, but will in fact just make it much safer.

Is there a way of subscribing to a user? Do you write for any websites? I'll give them a go tomorrow. What do you think the benefits of doing away with the stretch shortening cycle will bring in an exercise where you never really fail at the bottom anyway? Surely by using a little leg drive, you can overcome any weaknesses at the bottom? Or do you think that Savickas Press or the better Vanilla Gorilla Press will increase RFD at the bottom, and when COMBINED with some leg drive, will smash you past any potential sticking points?

Another question - no offense intended but how would the Savickas/VG Press make the lockout harder? Is it just because you can't use any levers?

Edit - went on your journal and found your website. Will be checking that out a fair bit.

Rumour is that he had a bet with Ironmind Nails and lost. Bit of a steep forfeit if you ask me.....

No they're not.

PAGAN said:Is it time strongman comps recognised these sleeves can offer an unfair advantage? No way is a triple ply sleeve simply for warmth/support Confused

I think straps are an unfair advantage - surely they help you lift more. I'm only saying this as I can't use straps to save my life. How about belts, olympic shoes, rock climbing shoes chalk.....

If there is a rule stating something's not allowed (deadlift suit) then it's not allowed. If there's nothing to state you can't have 3 ply sleeves, then i'd say go for it. P.S - do you think triple ply elbow sleeves will help my s**t overhead press?

Stair climber - high reps, almost all glutes and will increase GPP too. 30secs high level, 30 secs low level. Do this for 10mins. Also hits the calves quite a bit. I also like to use a cable crossover machine. I can lean forwards and walk out, then come back and do 3 walks per set.

Any idea of what the weight in the hands will be for u105s roughly? 18" give or take if i'm correct?

Wake up whenever

Sandwich, milk or whatever at 12ish.


Protein shake whilst training, plus carbs (usually energy drink, lucozade etc) Sometimes peanuts in the gym between sets.

Pizza or leftovers at 3ish

Cook dinner (something simple for myself) or more of 3 o'clock meal at 6ish

Dinner at 8ish with gf - chicken and rice, beef and rice, fajitas.... veg goes in here.

11 or so - pint of milk maybe, couple of sandwiches? Might snack on some fruit. Tea/coffee and biscuits.

1am - might have the same as 11pm or do that now if I haven't done so already.

Diet is vague but usually around 170-200g protein, 400ish carbs

JamieG said:I just remembered mine, dunno if this crosses the weird line but...

In my early teens i decided to put a mint tic tac down my bell end while masturbating.
It just kept popping out so i sacked it off, fine at the time but it must have irritated it though because for the next week it felt like i was peeing glass. Had to use the cubicles at school so no one saw my face in agony.

Why not just use toothpaste like the rest of us?
