    Are you liking the SDP more than the Overkill now? Or was the change just because it wasn't fitting as well due to weight change or something?

    Yes sounds interesting.

    I shirt every other week. Years ago only shirted every 5-6 weeks. Then it changed to 4 weeks. Then 3 weeks. Too much is bad but too little and you lose the technique and...

    Damn! Atleast one person does not just argue with me saying I am wrong about everything. I was not just making everything up. Everything I have said was basically what I have heard over the years. I...

    BTW, there are many articles of Louie saying it's based off the max floor press. I know people have read them. I am not making this up.

    Of coarse Chris is right and I am completely wrong! Travis so you are using 75% at the top and probably 65% at the bottom? Pretty sure you are well below those percents and so should most lifters. So...

    You do know you can still do speed bench and also your other work as well. For example, you can do speed 9 sets of 3 (only takes like 10 mins!). Then you can do your 5x5 sets since you feel that...

    Chris, I have also been to a few seminars and met Louie (trained there a few times) so don't just assume you know more ;) Been training the Westside methods since 1998. You? 800+ bench at 242 class...

    Pretty sure Louie bases his percents off the weights at chest level. But you are right, it's all based on the speed. But most people can't feel this correctly. Sure I can rep 405 for 3 fast but not...

    So many people don't know how to do speed benching. On an above post one guy said 50% and then bands on top of that (25% more).

    That is totally wrong. Yeah you can move that with decent speed but...

    Inzer SDP vs. Metal Jack

    I am thinking about trying a Jack or an SDP (again). My last SDP years ago kept getting runs and little holes all over the chest and collar. Even on the first workout to a 4 board! But maybe I had...

    Titan BOSS shirt or a 2 ply Katana

    I am looking at getting a new BOSS or 2 ply Katana. Anyone ever use the BOSS? I have heard of people using it for the squat but not the bench press. Is it 2 layers laminated with F6 or Katana poly?...

    Yeah I agree on people using HRT if they require it. Just don't think they should be lifting in tested feds like so many of them think they can do. You either use or you don't.

    Funny, there is the...

    Of coarse there is a big difference. But the only difference is the dosage. You ARE still taking a banned substance called "testosterone". Who cares how much. Go look at the APF website;...

    How can a 20 year be on TRT? Very suspicious. Have you ever used or taken roids or pro-hormones? I have heard of 30 year olds on it, but 20! Your endocrine system doesn't even fully develop until...

    Who cares what your ratio is. If you take a substance on the banned list that is a fail. If that were the case I could jack up on some Anavar and have a legal ratio and pass the test.
