    Since your goal is hypertrophy and your title indicates an interest in rest/pause, why not take a look at the HCT-12 routine? I have had really good results (strength and hypertrophy) with it, as...

    Wonder what happened. Rather than turn lifters away, Spero usually just goes with a.m. & p.m. flights and/or extends the meet to two days. Where is the venue?

    For future reference, Convict knee...

    Brian's meets are always fun, but this one had an added benefit: It was short! I was home for dinner.

    I'm moving to VA in a few months, so that was probably my last meet with the Orlando Barbell...

    Finally Got My "Big" Pull

    Over the past few years, many here have encouraged, educated, and helped me resolve lifting problems, so I just wanted to let you know that after nearly two years of chasing the dream, I finally...

    Most cycles, I deadlift every other week. Currently, however, I'm doing them every workout (MWF), mostly very light (<70%) with low volume (2 sets of 5). At the start, did a 5-3-2 once a week. (The...

    Yea, between the RUM, Raw United's record breakers, Brian Schwab's APF meet, USPA next weekend, and even the senior games that pulled some of us geezers, there are just too many good meets to choose...

    I will probably try USPA next year, too. Have heard some good things about them, and they hold most meets at a convenient location.

    I thought Brian did cap it at sixty. Guess there were twenty...

    There's a lesson learned here that I think you can appreciate, Brian. For the past five years, most of my meets have been with Raw United and the APF meets run by Orlando Barbell, because as you and...

    Thanks for all the good feedback, my friends. Unfortunately, it is what it is. Time for me to move on.

    Note: To be fair, I did advise the meet director, who emailed me a defense of the judges'...

    Phew! I'd shot my mouth off to the meet director and fired off an email to the fed president, then thought to myself, "Holy shit! What if I'm wrong?"

    Thanks, guys.

    Deadlift "Controlled Descent" Rule

    At a recent meet, a few of us were redlighted because we "put the bar down too hard". These were not near drops. In all cases, the lifter rode the bar all the way to the floor with both hands...
