    Is good girl the one where you close your legs against the resistance, and bad girl the one that opens them against resistance?

    Nice 5 repper though

    Yes yes. A friend of mine came up with the terms and it made me lol.

    They are gay but they've helped immensely with my quad pain.

    Previous PB was 170x2 which I did last week.

    Mental session. Was awesome. I thought I was going to die after 3 but I had a really good spotter who I trust with my life who kept me going. I needed a little support (note: support, not help) on the last rep to stop me from leaning excessively in the hole but he was hands off on the eccentric portion of the lift so I'm counting it.

    Thanks for your continued interest buddy .

    Nice. I really need to find a good workout partner. I'd be willing to do pretty much any split if they consistently turned up to the gym.

    Also is there any reasoning behind the giant reps like 50 rep face pull?

    I don't have a training partner per se, there's just a group of regulars who actually look like they lift and put up some decent numbers that train around the same time as me (1700-2000). We share spots, successes and training tips but we all train differently and have different goals so training together would be pointless.

    I do stuff like machine work and isolation moves for super high reps because they aren't power exercises. As far as I'm concerned, if you're doing a facepull for less than 20 or so reps you aren't doing it right. You'll be hitting your biceps, traps and rhomboids and your rear delts won't get the stimulation they need.

    When I did facepulls for lower reps (8-12) I used to get a pump in my biceps, traps and rhomboids but never in my rear delts. Now I do them for a ****load of reps I feel them exclusively in my rear delts and surprise, surprise- they've grown.

    Bodyweight is down to 87 for some reason. Probably a combo of stress and an ongoing URI that I've had for over a week now. Gay illness is gay.

    Currently eating half a litre of custard and 3 GU brownies to compensate for random weight loss.

    Did some conditioning today.

    12x20 metre sprints (up a hill, reasonably steep)

    I've been letting my conditioning work slide a little recently and I feel really ****ty for it.

    Conditioning is important. From now on I will do at least 2x week hard conditioning. More if I can. This is a new rule that I intend to follow forever.

    Also, in case any of you reading this haven't noticed, I've been doing a lot of trap training recently.

    I really want a ****ing massive yoke. Like, really bad. I already have one of the biggest yokes in my gym but then, I have muscle dysmorphia so :tong:.

    Training at the moment is about getting a bigger yoke.

    https://docs.google.com/document/d/1.../preview?pli=1

    This explains why a big yoke is awesome (by Jim Wendler, no surprises there considering my man crush on him is almost as big as my man crush on Mariusz Pudzianowski).

    Also, a picture of my yoke for your viewing pleasure:

    This is what I ate for dinner today.

    Name:  food2getyoke'd.jpg
Views: 99

    So, to conclude I have a new training 'mantra'.

    Be strong, be in shape (and have a big yoke).

    Nothing else matters.

    **** powerlifting, **** bodybuilding, **** what other people think. I need to train for me. This realization has been a long time coming. Maybe one day I'll do a meet or a BBing show. For now I'm just going to focus on doing what I love: training- and making myself the most badarse mother****er I can be.

    Oddly deep and lengthy post. Hope you enjoyed.

    Haha that article made me laugh, I'm gonna do a proper training log soon with pics and all. You can see how yokeless I really am.

    Tbh though, I dislike big traps immensely, they make your shoulders looks narrow and they just look ugly.

    Bench 1RM is 125 T&G and 112.5 paused.

    I like doing heavy triples because they don't fatigue me like rep work and don't make me feel like **** like doubles and singles

    Not bad , I am kind of the same.. good at triples , better at maxing out .. currently my triple is roughly 100 , maybe 105... I will go for 120 tomorrow if that fails then I will spend more time on improving triples.

    I am not even sure if I should max out again tomorrow or work on lower weight set...
