    (Optimus) Prime cut of beef

    Stats:

    Bench 90kg*3
    Squats 120kg*5
    Deads 144kg*3

    I recommend Starting Strength (the book and the programme) to all of my friends. I went from 90kg to 105kg in just over a year, and my lifts increased too:

    Bench: 50kg to 105kg
    Squat: 30kg to...

    Salam theman! Ramadan kareem to you too! I agree with Levantar. I work out either before iftar (breaking fast in the evening) or later at night, after evening prayers, so I can get another high-carb...

    Thanks for the advice guys, I'll buy some shin-pads tomorrow. I duct taped newspaper to my legs for today's deads, they were (literally) shredded by the end!

  7. Deadlift question - shin scraping really necessary?

    Hi all-

    I've been uncomfortable with deadlifts for a long time, so I've been working on my form for the past few weeks. I've read the advice of a lot of people who say you should pull BACK,...

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Yeah Sensei, it was the last set and my attention to form slipped a little bit, I'll keep an eye on that.

    Thanks for your comments man. I'm glad to hear my shoulder press looks alright, I thought my elbows should have been further in front of the bar, but that kills my wrists. I'll try a wider grip and...

    I know what you mean, it's why I've alternated light days with heavy days. I've just started eating and lifting seriously, and I'm so full of energy all the time that I think I could be making faster...

    I'll probably get the first one since I'm comfortable with it. It doesn't seem like the second one has major advantages over it either. Thanks for your answers!

    Thanks for your replies, I hadn't thought of behind the neck presses - I'll see if I can try one out before I buy it. Are there any other movements an e-z bar can make (lol sorry) e-z-ier?
