Regarding squats and deads, it's fairly normal to see around a 100 pound difference. Mine has been around that for years.

What does your squat workout or leg day look like? Also what is your height, weight and age?
Thanks for the reply beast,

I'm following the early intermediate program so it goes between the, two lower days I'm sure you're very familiar with the only thing I changed was twice a week I will squat with a reply goal. I'm 21, 6ft and 175 lbs.

Hey Steve,
I just saw your video on arm size and I was wondering if bone thickness changes over time due to weight training.
Thanks.

Not that I am aware of. Bone density improves, I believe.

Nice work. It's a shirted bench so I'm not surprised. There were over thirty 600+ benchers at the meet this weekend, I believe.

I fully expect an 800 shirted bench by a teen soon if geared lifting continues to grow.

Great bearded one,

I PMed you on facebook but you didn`t reply so I created an account here to ask this question:

In my country, we have to enlist in the military for 2 years, so it`s no lifting and no control over my food intake for 2 years, along with frequent long route marches, sleep deprivation and grueling conditions, possibly starving for several days on occasion.

Its mostly going to be doing cardio/marching/push-ups, and I have a life time goal of becoming a power lifter and achieving a good raw powerlifting total someday.

What would you do in my situation?

Should I just get back to lifting and start all over after enlisting?

Thanks for your time

Your videos and forum posts/articles have been a great help in helping me get stronger recently

Sorry, I'm not on Facebook much. My apologies.

I was in the service for 2 years. If you are lucky, you will find a minimal amount of equipment to use. My advice is that if you do have access to any equipment - and I mean literally anything - use it. get as strong as you can on it, despite the diet restrictions or limited weight.

If you only have 35 pound dumbbells, work up to 50 rep sets. In the absence of resistance, slowly add volume.

If you have no equipment at all, stay fit. Do a 3x a week body weight workout with push ups, pull ups etc. This will only help in the long run.

Worst case is that you will build some extra tendon strength, etc.

Hey, after some consideration and advice given, I figured westside might be a little too advanced for me currently. I was thinking about starting madcows 5x5, whats your opinion on this and is there anything you'd add or change about the program?

Hail Bearded Beast,

Has a mass monster like yourself ever gotten injured or had joint problems in your career?

Thanks

What are your current lift numbers?

And your height, weight and age? Sorry if I asked before.
