I workout alone, I like the challenge of mentally psyching myself up and having the pleasure of inflicting maximal effort without help. Its good to be able to motivate yourself. I hate people who talk to me, infact I dont talk to anyone, if they try and talk to me I give them a one word answer then ignore them. I AM THERE TO TRAIN, NOT TO FUCK ABOUT. Most people dont talk to me now, they think I am ignorant, I am not I am just focused. In the gym I am in control of my destiny and my world, there is no fat shit telling me what to do like at work, I am my own god, I think this moment should be relished. I dont need a workout partner or want one.
I looking for some advice.. or maybe some experience with the following... Since around the first of the year, I have been having problems with my grip strength... as in loosing what limited strength I had before. I am now having problem with my grip and doing pullups, Shrups and especially Deadlifts.
not going heavy enough, or not doing enough reps. Soreness doesn't always mean productive either. You can be really sore and get nothing out of it, and the opposite is sometimes very true.

Get rid of the ridiculous rebound gear, but don't disallow all equipment that offers injury protection. Standardize the judging across feds. Televise. To garner appeal, bios of lifters and clips of them training, and talking about their training and personal lives to put some recognizable faces and personality to the sport. Personally I would like to see drug testing, but for the general population this particular aspect probably would not affect viewing. (ie People still watch Olympics and baseball, right?). Hot babes in bikinis holding signs above their heads to announce lifters and their # attempts! (This will not be a sport that appeals to women viewers anyway) Do whatever it takes to clean up the sport enough to qualify for the olympics. I think bodybuilding is losing whatever general popularity it had do the drugs and naricism of the sport. But still, people like to train and will look for other role models and goals to emulate. I think powerlifting could become much more mainstream.

Keep your shit out of my rack. The power rack is the temple of the weight room. Itâ€™s made for going heavy. I can live with doing chins, but keep your curls and stretching and duck unders the hell out of my power rack. Okay, while this is all said in fun, I do feel many have lost sight of what the power rack was intended for.
Does anyone have any suggestions that would help me get a Rage bench shirt up my arms. I have a H.D. Blast Shirt of the same size and it goes on with no problems. The difficulty comes when trying to get the shirt past my elbow and on to the upper arm. Thanks in advance for any help.
Was talking to a powerlifter at my gym the other day, and he mentioned that he thought bands and chains on the bench weren't much help for a raw lifter, because they work the lockout, while raw lifters usually have problems lower in the bar path. I knew bands and chains mostly worked the lockout and triceps strength, but does this make them a lot less useful for guys benching raw?
