    Who Actually Lifts?

    Would be interesting to know how many of the members here actually lift weights?? By some of the responses to posts on here, it becomes apparent that some people do not have a clue about weight training. Do they still train? Or do we have people here that just come to the forum to kill some...

    Powerlifting shoes - where to try and buy in melbourne?

    Previously I've only worn runners when training, so obviously I've never bought any before. So because some brands will fit my feet better than others, I need to try some before handing over any cash. Is this actually possible in Melbourne?

    Fellow short dudes, where do you buy your gym tanks/singlets?

    I'm 5'7" and struggle to find tanks/singlets that fit properly, especially stringers. Any recommendations for good fitting gym gear for shorter dudes?
  8. Reide

    Probably a dumb question but I'm going to ask anyway

    Can exercise make you taller or shorter? I could imagine posture comes into play but I seem to have shrunk 3cm and I'm already happy meal sized.

    Angle of foot for squatting?

    Read something recently by a Cross-Fit bloke. He writes you lose hip torque during squats if you let your toes turn out. Same with fingers during pushups. Keep them facing straight. Thoughts on this, anyone read this also ? I for one would like to know how this tool used what tool to...

    So a few guys have asked if I can post up a few pointers on the bench. Im no bench specialist, but hopefully the following can help you out a little. Setup First things first, we need to set our grip width. 81cm is the maximum legal grip that can be used in competition, so given my levers...
