For your thoughts and prayers..Nica is coming home today for a slow but steady recovery. Deb and I cannot thank you enough for your cards and e-mails of concern. How wonderful that we can all put our diffrences aside and for a few days consentrate on the well being of a little girl. This week really made me think about people and what is and is not important and let me tell you what it's not setting records or living for glory, it's making breakfast with your daughter or going for a motorcycle ride with your son washing the car etc.it's the little moments the ones that seem insignificant those are remembered forever... Again from the bottom of my heart thank you for taking time out of your day to think and pray for my Nica.... Mike,Deb Miller and family

I got pissed last night people went crazy and started posting all kinds of things, making physical threats and cussing so I deleted ALL the posts, locked the Forum down, deleted everything and now I am running everything myself. If anyone wants to threaten anyone they can threaten me and cuss me. I will delete ANYTHING that I feel is threatening an any way to anyone. Then people can ask me why and accuse me. I have also asked 3 other people to help me run this forum. Two NASA members and another, non lifter. I have given them compete authority to delete any and all posts that may seem controversial in ANY way. If ANYONE posts anything that is supposed to be funny or satire in nature they best put smiley faces with it. because it will be deleted. Anyone using threats, cussing with threats will be immediately and permanently deleted and banned, no exceptions. If someone is thin skinned to the point that everything that is said is offensive to them, then need to get out before they are thrown out. We will tolerate no more from either side, the Trolls or the thin skinned.

I believe it to be true just from my own experience over the years. Also, most higher level bodybuilders will stop DL'ing about 10wks out to allow for a more narrow waist (and avoid injury while lean). My waist width has dropped dramatically since I eliminated DL & SQ from my routine after BB retirement.
if powerlifting was makeing a serious push to get into the olympics and subsequently did away with all gear how would the raw numbers stack up to the equipt ? who would be the best, would the guys who had all the records now still be the best? we all know what mendy can do in the bench and what bolton can do in the deadlift but who else would give them a run for there money. this is for sake of conversation, and not a diss on gear.

Is it a powerlifing taboo to place a 2.5lbs weight on the bar, especially the squat or deadlift? We are powerlifing men and women, not bodybuilders or mirrow lovers. B/c I did it tonight with the floor press to break a record.
