    Thanks for the advice. I know I need to stretch and since I really never have, it's probably a blessing I haven't been injured more. I would doubt this makes a difference, but when I went to the...

    Thanks, Chris. I don't doubt I'm doing / did something wrong; however, in 10 years of lifting and doing heavy (for me) deads for a majority of that time, once a week or once every other week, why is...

    Low Sodium, Low Saturated Fat Bulk

    Possible?

    Doesn't necessarily have to be low, I guess, just within daily limits.

    I've been lifting for 7 years and this is definitely the most stagnant aspect of my routine. I'm 6' 195 right now. I just finished 3 sets of 225 for 5 reps tonight. I...
