    I usually use my work computer, which is a Lenovo T410 notebook running Windows XP. I tried using my girlfriend's Macbook and a friend's Lenovo running Windows 7. The message was consistent with both...

    John actually reached out me directly; he indicated there's no reason they should be unavailable and he would check into this when he returns next week. Nothing like getting a message from the head...
  3. Are blogs/training logs still accessible?

    I've tried accessing the blogs from a couple different computers, and I keep getting an error message "To use this product the plugin system must be enabled."

    Anyone else getting the same error...

    Steve is right about this, you will pay as much or more for shipping as the mat costs.

    Check your local farm and home stores and feed stores.

    IIRC I picked mine up for $35.00 each.[/QUOTE]

    I bolded the incongruous statements. Carefully consider what you're telling yourself vs. the actual results you're experiencing (for the press, specifically).

    I feel like I'm repeating myself,...

    Top powerlifters often train the bench press & squat multiple times per week (some even train the deadlift with similar frequency). Weightlifters train the lifts and squat daily. Iranian SHW and...

    Setting up a daily plan, I would base the plan on intuition (feel), with a nod to percentages/1RM. I would have the lifter complete 1-5 sets of 1-5 reps at a daily max for the given volume. (The...

    You're seriously overcomplicating things for yourself. My suggestion isn't to dramatically increase the amount of weight & volume from your original plan...my suggestion is to exhibit a little more...

    Just a suggestion -
    It's good to start well within your limitations, but if your plan has you pressing 5x3 @ 50-60% 3 days per week, and taking things from there, I wouldn't expect gawdy changes in...

    Understood with regards to the total if you have to drive that far. Taking 15 minutes out of the day is a lot less of a strain vs. an hour.



    The frequency with which you can productively train...

    I understand your thought process, but you may find the results of this approach to be disappointing. A good push press (or jerk) is heavily dependent on leg drive and coordination; a strong push...

    Strongman contests typically allow push presses or jerks in the "press" events, as well. When you say you're "struggling with the press," are you referring to a strict press, or a push press/jerk? If...

    Since I train for myself, I tend to chase the highest number that seems possible at the time. I tell myself I'll be happy with it, but I know that when I pull 700, I'll start thinking about catching...

    Thanks!

    El_Muerto,
    The optimal width stance has a lot to do with the supportive equipment used. Look at sumo pullers from previous eras in powerlifting and the raw deadlifters of...

    Happy to share the "why" behind my methods, and I'm even more happy to share when I have an actual reason.

    All the best,

    Deadlifting will help you improve at hanging on to things with curled fingers, particularly while manipulating your bodyweight against the item you're holding.
