What's your set up like. I used to walk in dick around get set up and lift and found if I just March up and yank it off the ground I have more explosive power off bottom and makes my weight go up easier. Don't set feet or grip just walk up and do it. Stops me from thinking I can't also.

Midgets? I'm 5'10 :

Don't worry wede- if we ever have the pleasure of working out in the same gym/ I'm not an inconsiderate meat head.

I use two yoga matts to absorb most of the drop. But never slam the weights. Even if they're bumper plates

Hahahaahaha I definitely dick around.

Water swig, look around at the tight lady butts in yoga pants, look down. Deep breath, exhale, deep breath, exhale- grip/ LIFT.

Thursday, I'm going to try the 1 more mod approach.

Start lighter have to get hands and feet close to correct position or may get injured. Helps if someone hits you across the face with a weight belt also before.

That was for 1MOREMOD and the guy I was talking about didn't cross 4 feet, probably. I'm guessing he was doing 315 so I guess I should just shut up.

5' 9 3/4" personally. . .

I considered taking action, but figured you should keep your own dang aliens in line, so just gritted my teeth and butterflied those huge 30lb dumbbells, brotato.

Curious what others are planning, and if anyone is dropping squats and deadlifts what will you replace them with ?
I started "Body Beast" 4 weeks ago.... It's all free weights. I got tired of plyometrics and full body cardio workouts (Gilean Michaels).
So far so good- I have discovered new muscles I didn't think I had

Never posted in this forum, so...Hi...

Lots of interesting input in here.

I'm in the process of getting two surgeries done, so I'm out for a bit. Looking at getting into Freeletics or fullbody type workouts when I heal up. Not much into weights, never have been. Working out has always been more of a chore to me than a hobby. Trying to get out of that mindset but eeehhh
