Nothing earth shattering.

No video proof

not bad for a natty... i'm not as strong as i once was but i do not train for that anymore... but my bench has increased (315 for 4-5 last january) over the last year... i attribute this mostly to diet (been pretty strict) and to the addition of bands and chains to my training. my shoulders and tris are significantly stronger now.

I think the whole mentality of "demanding proof" of feats we consider commonplace is an indication of the type of people who increasingly inhabit this board. The serious boards are okay for the most part, but if you post on the G&O that you rep anything over two plates, people call bullshit.

Truth is that a lot of folks do not. But it's all proportional.

As I've stated before I started lifting at 14. Longest stoppage in my life was about 4 months.

I've being pursuing some kind of athletic goal for 20 years.

I suspect I'm used to it because I spent my formative gym years in a hardcore facility that had lots of serious powerlifters and bodybuilders. Although I never got involved to the level of the top dogs there, I was fortunate that most of them took a liking to me, and I learned a lot from them; everything from the ABC's of training, spotting, nutrition, even the PED end of things.

As such, I saw a lot of impressive feats, too. I know what has been, and can be done. While not everyone has enjoyed this exposure, I still wonder how many here (not the training board) have even stepped foot in a gym.

one more option that i just thought of is to do my reps with a 4 second cadence ie. 4 seconds up and 4 seconds down

i'm doing my reps now with a normal cadence and each rep only takes about 2 or 3 seconds, but if i start doing the slower rep cadence each rep will take about 6 to 8 seconds

any of you dudes ever experiment with a slower rep cadence? and if yes, how were your results?

p.s. i'd much rather spend my dough on my ladyfriend and on clothes and shoes for myself then on buying more weight plates, truth be told

I'm not a fan myself. As with most training methods, I'm sure it has its place for some folks.
I believe there is more research supporting the superior effectiveness of explosive concentric portions followed by slower negatives.

yeah, i've seen that too

so would a good guideline by a "controlled" explosive contraction follow by a 3-4 second negative?
