Re: Decline Bench Press

I didn't read the article but I'm assuming it has to do with the arched back and bench shirt. Declines probably simulate that to an extent.

Read a Westside article in which Louie advocates. On here IIRC some users don't feel quite as positively. I never do it.

Powerlifting context: Yes or no?
Maybe?

What was the reasoning for advocating them?

I haven't done them since high school and don't see myself ever doing them again.

Re: Simple and Sinister - second edition.

If only there was a happy medium between 16 and 24 kgs. Something, I know it's hard to imagine, but something like a 20 kg kettlebell. You should consider making some and selling them. But really - in terms of DD style shit - you can go from 16 to 24 to 32 if you are male of reasonable testosterone...

Look....let's not ignore the elephant in the room. If you can't figure out how to move from a 16 to a 24 you have no business playing the game.

Columbu never ever used RPE. He used steroids instead. That's what allowed him to work out at the limit every time.
As does almost every other athlete of any level.......and the ones that don't are on testosterone replacement therapy.

Re: Consistency over intensity

Clearly, I will admit, I'm wrong but I still feel like I'm missing the boat. The 1-10 pain scale has always struck me as garbage, it means different things to different people, and honestly different things to the SAME person at different times. And given that, by your own admission, "most people w...
