Not true mate. 1RM's are also the name of the game for anyone wanting to lift the heaviest weight possible, and arnt just necessary. They are paramount.

For instance, I suspect you may miss C+J's/Snatches more often that squats or pulls.

Absolutely, but even they are maxed out for a very limited time
Going round in circles here a bit, but I suppose it's worth saying.

If I'm going round in circles I'm glad it's with you mate. I know I'm going to lose. Lol. Just glad we're not having this conversation as spoken. I'd be dead alreadyWink

To get back to the start I can only reiterate that personaly I think that I train in my comfort zone 'most' of the time. I often walk out of the gym with lifts in the tank, there for next time, and as an observation it would appear to me that most of the more prolific, bigger lifters do the same.
Over and out (sorry Andy, but this thread is just too serious for me)

You cant blame Ste. He was only doing as he was told albeit badly. We were very close to this thread being an abituaryEek

If you cant do the time, dont do the crime. Death is too good for these people. Make them watch Eastenders or something I say.
Moving those bad boys (the weights, not fast talking Andy) will require the use of toetecktors eventually, and Adders isnt exactly bursting with guys who can lift things past their testicles.
It's plain old dangerous, daft and discourteous. If you had missed your last 630 sqt tonight Ped it would be the fault of that wicked, evil person.

I'm not saying I know who it was, but Ste Turner was holding the bar for them, which in itself carries serious health risks. Ste rocksConfused

"Most people overestimate what they can acheive in a year, and underestimate what they can acheive in a decade"- Think this fits in with what you're saying Andy, if I'm interpreting you correctly.

My last post took too longAngry
Yep, thats about it mateWink

Pete has made fairly rapid progress though

I'd say the opposite Andy. He always looks to be progressing well, but the increases are very slight, and as a one time squatting partner, I'd say almost boring.Embarassed
100K in around 300 weeks (with the added expertise of equipment and it's correct use) isnt rapid progress IMO. Who on here would be happy with a 10K increase in over 6 months?
Just me and Pete then?Wink
Just out of interest Pete, when was the last time you missed a squat?
The last I can remember missing was a 285 either late last year or very early this year, I'm guessing because I squat in my comfort zone?? Hardly lazy, but I'm just not going to miss basic training lifts. If I am, I'm training wrong IMO.

Andy, thing is, your 'training' is harder than mostpeople's 'killing themselves'.

It may be mate, but that is the end result of a very long education. I wouldnt expect someone to train like I do straight off, and certainly not like I could 15 years ago, but give me a reasonably athletically talented 10/11 YO kid and 10 years & I dont see any reason why they couldnt hit it the same. It's a gradual, constant build up.
It's also fair to say that back in the day (although I may seem a little flippant nowadays) that I was little short of fanatical. Education, career, social, relationships all came after my next workout, and very often not at all. I think I'm a bad example for comparison.
Getting back to your OL/PL comment earlier, I trained with WIGAN tonight C&J and back sqt. We blitzed reps with 80-90% of recent lifts and were never in any danger of not getting any lift all night. I also saw Steve Leigh and Fat pete have blinding workouts, hitting numbers that most can only dream of, and again not a missed lift in sight. Not even near. 4 guys, 2 late 30's, 1 mid 40's, 1 early 50's. All with decades of lifting behind them, injury free, top of their game and still looking for improvement. I'll say again, it's no accidentHappy

I suspect you strained more when a youngster?

Not at all mate. If anything I was held back by people with a lot more experience than I had. Dont get me wrong, Young Wigan and myself would often hit 20+ sessions a week up to 90%, but we never felt like it was killing us. Hard work yes, but nothing terminal. I've never been a fan of (or made) massive gains, I've also never struggled with any kind of serious injury, and personally I dont see this as good luckWink

Are you guys confusing training with straining??

For me training should always be in the comfort zone. Anything up to 90%'s I can bang out all day. This is training, and for me this is where the gains are made. Anything over this is just fun, but where lifting weights is concerned you have to earn the right to have fun and that is done via 'training'

Does that mean that the left one is right, and the right one is wrong?

OK guys. You have a really genuine question or important bit of information you want to share and the same old people keep popping up and bringing the thread down to gutter level and right off topic. I mean these people are an absolute 'kin liability to any board. Well heres your chance to name and shame em. I'm going for ...
Purple Paul - for constantly going off thread with bondage s**t
Badboy - for bringing VD to the party. I mean this fella is such filth I have to disinfect my eyes after reading his post's, in fact forget I mentioned Paul who's quite helpfull in a purple kind of way.

Who do you consider to be the least helpfull 'off topicker threaderson'?
