    Work hard play hard right?!

    90% of everything you read on bodybuilding forums centers around working hard, very hard! The weekend rolls by and some can't wait to really play hard either. So we've got 90% working and playing hard, and it seems the same 90% are wondering why they're not progressing the way they believe they...

    [Article] Are deadlifts necessary beyond powerlifting?

    My humble view is that deadlifts are overrated as an exercise, beyond their importance to powerlifting. I tend to agree with this article https://www.t-nation.com/training/the-deadlift-who-needs-it I also say this despite that lift being probably my best lift of the three powerlifts. as a...

    Iron Edge

    Looks like Iron Edge has gone bust (http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/2537363) - I noticed that Gymquip is now selling Rehband sleeves and a new website is now selling Romaleos and bands (https://www.iron365.com.au/). Bit of a shame, but not really surprising since their gear was pretty...

    I posted this here because I didn't know where to, so many sub forums. back in the day at around the mid nineties there were a couple of forums specifically about lifting weights, with maybe three sub forums. all had their philosophies and like minded people used to discuss methods and swap...

    Squats and Deadlifts 7 days a Week!?!?

    Wasn't sure if I should put this in the body building or power lifting section, so I just put it here. Not sure if such a program exists, but I was thinking the other day while driving to work for an hour, I might give Squats and Deadlifts daily a run for a little while and see. My thoughts...

    Bro Science vs. Science and what you need to know

    Would you stop what’s been working for you for years based on some new scientific study? Personally, I wouldn’t. If something has been working, it does not stop working because some scientist somewhere has “proved” to the contrary. A case in point here would be the application of the...

    The state of the powerlifting/strength forum

    To quote a competitive lifter from my facebook feed today: "that forum is the bottom of the barrel." If the powerlifting section is to ever draw competitive lifters then it needs legitimate and serious discussion about the sport. This is what it needs, not a bunch of non-competitive idiots...
