How did you fracture it? How did that compare to the pain whilst eating said calamari?

Circumcision aged 4 with no anaesthetic. I was given a magazine to take my mind off things. I didn't know how to swear at that age. 2nd worst was a torn acl which took the meniscus out. Slammed my foot in a car door when I was about 9.

Andy Bolton used to deadlift with wrist wraps. He's got an OK deadlift.....

It forces the muscles that are responsible for contracting the hands (flexors) to er.... contract. Much like how knee wraps work (part of how they work) - shortens the tendons.

Not at all (then again when I lift equipped, it's ALWAYS SUMO and i'm biased)

Doesn't say anything about suits not being allowed. Are they?

Sorry, bench was supposed to read OHP. I hate benching anyway!

I used to compete in powerlifting, and have now made a move to strongman. I'm still trying to get my squat up, but have seen that many guys have significantly lower squats than deadlifts. Should I still carry on trying to improve squat/bench/shoulder press, or not worry about squats too much and change the squat day to deads or something? Current training routine looks a little like

Mon - rack pulls of varying heights, SLDL from floor, seated rows etc.

Weds - jerk from racks, cleans, shoulder press, triceps

Fri - squats, leg press, glute work, maybe abs

Should I focus more on doing speed pulls from floor on the friday, or will this burn out my CNS far too quickly? I can do sumo deadlifts from floor with a few doubles at around 80% on monday in order to help with tyres etc?

i WOULD piss all over people's deadlifts, but suits aren't allowed. I'd do it sumo too, then i'd get told it's double cheating - sumo and suited.

An inch in girth or an inch in length? Inch in length.... not sure. Inch in girth? Who cares, an inch bigger than my puny arms is still crap!

Yes he is.

Well there's no suits allowed so it'll probably be 180-200ish, depending on how i'm feeling.

I've never really understood the benefit of reverse band set up compared to normal. Obviously you will have about 60kg of bar weight maybe and a f**k load of tension but doesn't it do the same job? and is a bit safer if the band snaps.
This isn't really the place for this discussion though, I have nothing useful to add Happy

The gym that I train at doesn't have heavy enough dumbells to hold the bands down securely - they only go up to 40kg.

You need to introduce a bit of torture to some powers that be until they wish to die, then they'll agree with you that Dignitas/Euthanasia is ok in certain instances. A little coincidental that this man passed away, and it's a shame that he didn't die in the manner that he wished.
