    Wrong percentages

    If you are following the program correctly, then the 365x10 would have been on your 85% 5+ rep day. Doing the math, that means you are using 430 as your max (430 x .85 = 365). This means that on...

    Don't sell yourself short about your "frame size." I weighed 180 pounds at 6'2" for 4 years and thought that was all my frame could handle. After learning to eat and lift right, I weighed in at 225...

    That is exactly what I was thinking- how could he bump the bar when Johnson has it in his hands to bench? I thought it was also interesting how he is suing for "future earnings" that he lost. He...

    week 1- heavy deads
    week 2- heavy squats
    week 3- rack pulls
    week 4- front squats

    Seems to be working really well for me. ...
