    I have bumper plates and stall mats, it works well. I like the bumper plates but you'd be good with iron too

    You will. 405 ends up taking up a good bit of the sleeve on the bar and you’ll blow past that

    This. And I also think there is something to be said to having the weight closer to your your center of balance. I don't know the data behind it, but if "feels" more solid if the weight is sitting closer in.

    Also should think about plate storage. Those bumpers take up a lot of room compared to iron.

    I’m not a physicist, but I think it has to do with the weight dispersement making it whip/oscillate more creating an unstable feeling. Lifting a heavy weight feels noticeably different from bumpers to iron to calibrated plates

    He's not going a2g but kinda seems like his numbers could be a bit higher with that level of strength.

    He certainly looks capable of 501. Idk about 520, though. 2 1,100lb deadlifts seems a bit stressful

    Thanks brother. I’m excited. Have a major website feature I’ve been working on for close to a year. Think it’s going to change the game. Need full time commitment to get it over the finish line.

    would love for you dudes to be testers of it soon.

    That's awesome, congrats. One thing I never found that would have been really useful was an interactive garage gym build feature. I put in my dimensions and select a rack, bar, weights etc and see what works with my space and get a cost estimate for everything. If you link it up people can transition straight to the vendor's site so you get your commission.

    That’s something I would love to do. The biggest hurdle is getting all the products drawn up virtually in an auto cad-like way.

    The new feature will go a long way towards cutting out all the noise and paralysis by analysis. Get personalized lists of equipment in an e-commerce format that meets your exact needs. Read, watch, compare, save, buy, etc...

    Also a shameless plug for any of you who are Star Wars fans. Putting these out tomorrow. I’ll make a TMB code for a discount if anyone wants to grab one.

    I have a couple hensleya shirts. They fit really well and look really sharp. Did they make my deadlift blow up and make me or irresistible to women? So many variables to nail down to one reason, but they absolutely did.

    I do dry age them in a creatine powder that has been laced with erotic pheromones, so that’s probably why. Glad it worked.

    I’m assuming the shirts are more of an athletic cut so I don’t look like a literal box?
