    That depends on you. It's just stating that you can't take a light weight and do a bunch of reps with it and expect results.

    What's elite for 165s?



    Where is this in regards to parallel for you? I use a 14" box at 6'4 and I consider that parallel. Always hard to judge though, considering I work out alone in my...

    Get on a powerlifting regimen. You'll not only get strong as hell, with a proper diet you'll get massive. There aren't weight rules in football so get cracking. You've got a good base to start with.

    Form-wise, a powerlifter sits back, not down. That's the...

    It definitely IS shorter bar path, but thanks for trying to chime in. Powelifters set the bar lower because they squat back. This gives the bar a straight line up and down. And as we all know the...

    The key to Westside, in my opinion, is the variety. Don't specify what lifts you're going to do. Just know that on your ME Bench day, for example, your accessory work is going to slam your triceps...

    Goes lower according to whom? Guys who put the bar high squat to the floor. Guys who squat like PL'ers go to parallel. Unless I'm misunderstanding you.

    Who cares about bodyfat? He's a powerlifter, not a bodybuilder. Besides, a little bodyfat will help keep him warm in the winter. :)
