  1. hack deadlift, combatting forward knee drift

    I've been following the modified DeLorme routine to put some mass back on after an injury induced lay-off.

    Some days, I alternate the hack deadlift (bar behind the legs) with normal and...
  2. looking for neck harnesses and 'the helmet'

    I'm going to be doing some neck training and will be doing some bridging. I'm aware of headstraps and like the Iron Mind one best.

    Also important is to measure progress. Have her...

    truly outstanding lifting.

    That is truly outstanding lifting. For a lifter in any weight class, male or female, those numbers are impressive. For a 148 pound woman to be putting up those poundages is mind blowing.

    questions and thoughts on cycling

    1.) When someone does not lift a lot of poundage (say a 50lb barbell MP) should that change the way that percentages are used in program design? With lighter poundages, 80% of a 1RM puts you very...

    as with others: pick different lifts.

    You want to subject yourself to heavy weights. Deadlifts, squats, benches, pull-ups, military press, dips etc. As Pavel says, "If you can get a pump using heavy weights, you will grow." That maxim...

    It is not a direct correlation. Other factors such as: load used, leverage, etc all make an impact. Bottom line: more load, more time under tension = more size and strength.
