    Is It True?

    On Scott Cartright's facebook he posted that he is no longer training with Supertraining Gym and is working out at his own facility. Does anyone know if that is true, or just a joke?

    I totaly agree that there is so much debate over the depth of squats, but I think that stems from the fact that the multiple feds all have their own perception of what depth is. I don't really care...

    I would be using them for both axle and log. Thanks for the input. I probably will go with the double ply convicts in order to get more carryover.

    Yeah, I saw this posted on Mark's Facebook. Lexen was holding a copy of Power magazine, so maybe there was something written in there that perpetuated the first video. Otherwise maybe it is just a...

    Sleeves

    I am thinking about buying elbow and possibly knee sleeves. I compete in strongman, so I was hoping that the elbow sleeves could maybe give me a little more "pop" and increase my overhead push...
