    Squats work better than supplements.
    "You know, if I thought like that, I'd never put more than one plate on the bar for anything, I'd never use bands or chains, I'd never squat to parallel or below, and I'd never let out the slightest grunt when I lift. At some point in your lifting career (assuming you're planning on getting reasonably strong and big), you're going to have to accept that most people think you are some kind of freak." -Sensei

    Wish she coulda zoomed in a bit more, to get the whole "lifter's face" effect, but cool nevertheless.

    It looks like you have to pull the bar a mile man. I'd try some rasslin shoes. Every little bit helps.

    I actually think he looks like he could be Adam's dad.


    Whose that big guy lifting that little weight in the first pic.


    Nice and clear pics. Forearms in the bench pic make you look like a bencher. Have you always squatted that narrow? Just curious.


    Also, any plans to compete equipped in the future?
