My Ride: a franken-e46 325i
i'm pretty sure i could have gotten 385 a few nights ago but i just stopped after 375
now i regret it
if i'm going to max, i might as well keep going until i can't
which is why i asked if you attempted higher than 405

I just need to get my squats up, I think my issue was not warming up properly/enough.

Got a lot of unsolicited positive feedback from friends and family I haven't seen in a while last week.

A lot of "what are you on man? You've gotten big"

Feels good.

Why do you go that heavy with RDL?

Doing FS and squats on the same day must be a b!tch.

They are, and I like them, they do suck on leg day though.

I went light on RDLs today, only did so few because my hamstrings started to tighten.

And it's called leg day, front squats and back squats, it's exhausting but I like my 4 day split.

lol RDL you don't need much weight to stimulate the hams. I used to do RDL with 185lbs, then went to 155lbs and that had the same effect. Why do more when get the same with less?

This, his train of thought and reasoning amazes me. If you want to get stronger lower your weights because z00 said so.

Where do you get this sh1t? Did you take 2000 33 year old men with the same diet and workout and have some do the 155lb RDl's and other's do heavier to conclude your study? Same effect? Really? Don't take "my hams look the same with 185 as they do with 155 as "the same effect". Listen when we talk. If you can go heavier, always go heavier!

185lbs RDL leaves me as sore as 155lbs. There are a couple of other dudes on this forum who also experienced the same thing. See below.

Ya go heavy on muscles movements that require pulling or pushing not stretching. Like delt moves, you don't need a whole lota of weight to stimulate the muscles. It's all about stimulation, instead of doing 6 sets, some people can get the same results in 3. Same thing with the weight on certain exercises like RDL and delts. My .02 cents.

Re: bgsmith progress thread

I'll stick up for zoo on this one, personally I've found that time under tension is more important that the weight on the bar with rdls, so I've gone for higher reps and focusing on the stretch / pausing at the bottom. When I do this with heavier weights its my fore arms that fatigue first.
