    Naps are awesome

    I am retired so I get a nap in every day, it's one of the only skills I learned in the Army that still benefit me (never pass up the opportunity to get some sleep) I try to limit it to a 30-45...

    Brian,

    What I mean is that there is always a reason to not compete, that's why people never get on the platform. Once you do a meet, put up shitty numbers and realize nobody laughs at you for not...

    Big Ragu,

    I was suggesting you actually compete in it. What I learned from my 18 year layoff is that you are never actually "ready" for a meet, you could always wait for the next one, until you...

    Big Ragu,
    There is a WNPF meet next month in Rochester (I will be competing in it), it's a pretty nice laid back event and even for an older lifter like myself (45) it's still enough to get the...

    ScottYard,

    I think I now see what you mean about being too loose, I was focused on the arms being super tight but I didn't notice the gap at the top of the chest, does that mean that the extra...

    Miska,

    It would be more impressive if I didn't weigh 312 lbs at a whopping 6 feet tall. On the more impressive side (for me anyway) is that I am 42 and super lazy plus I eat like absolute...

    Travis and Marcus,

    I guess I need a new gym : It is about as far away from a powerlifting gym as possible anyway, I believe I could get Zumba certified there before I could find someone who has...

    Should I not be using the shirt until I get past my...

    More Stupid Questions

    I have a problem, I have almost always benched raw, I have used, on occasion, a single ply inzer that seemed to help me by about 35 pounds (505 raw to 540 in the basic shirt) so I ordered an Inzer...

    Pete and AJ,

    Ty both very much for the info, I will be looking into ways to incorporate the ideas into my training.

    Sounds great, but I have no idea what 5 3 1 is, I have no real knowledge of any PL programs to speak of, I just sort of fart around and try not to hurt myself too badly, I am hoping to change that...
  14. Bench/Deadlift Only Training, is there a plan for that?

    I was wondering if there was a program in place for people that can no longer squat but can still deadlift? I had my ankle fused (as well as 4 knee surgeries and a diskectomy) and due to the...
