    anyone ever dealt with strength imbalances in their legs? my right side is outworking my left. it's been an issue in the past, but seems much more noticeable right now as i'm working back from time off. in the past i added in slow stepdowns from a plyobox and single leg rdls. i saw some results, but was wondering if there were other movements to work in.

    Any of you guys have recommendations for a decent adjustable bench that isn't too pricey? I'm really not wanting to spend over $300 but will stretch that if I have to.
    NoNatty how are you liking the Titan Adjustable FID?

    I woke up this morning after a training session last night with my oly coach that included probably 75-100 reps of clean variations and then 10+ attempts over 90% of my old clean PR and a nightcap of heavy front squat doubles and clean pull doubles and really understood why people take steroids.

    Remember when you said you weren’t all that strong and then front squatted 315 and repped over 405 for volume on deadlifts showing you actually are strong? Pepperidge Farm remembers

    I am by no means a home gym expert, but it has done its job. It’s affordable and is still holding up fine. I have no plans to replace it.

    Landed my first home gym consulting client today. Literally a blank check job. Tasked with everything from flooring to wall coverings to equipment. Asked him if he had a budget in mind, and his response was “no, and it doesn’t matter. Just tell me how much and who to make it out to.” He’s building it mainly for his two teenage sons to use, but also him, his wife, and daughter. Detached building with the downstairs allocated to gym. Top floor is kitchen/dining/hangout that opens to pool. Side of house has a full size pitched and drained lacrosse field with full size outdoor basketball court. Full permission to create and share any content I want. Should be fun. About to spend this man’s money!

    My first state meet in oly is 10/23

    Had a heavy session this morning and worked up to 155 snatch without a miss (160 was prior PR), jumped to 165 and couldn’t quite stabilize it at the bottom

    Just did clean work instead of clean and jerk and hit a 20lb PR at 245. Almost had 255 but didn’t quite get my elbows through quick enough.

    Hoping I can hit 165/225 in the meet.

    *all weights in pounds*

    Worked up to a heavy front squat single PR of 265 on Sunday after OHP and Jerks. Lots of bourbon on Saturday. Sometimes the body makes absolutely no sense. Kept the volume low however.

    Bought EliteFTS SSB today. Free shipping for Labor Day, no idea what shipping usually costs but was enough incentive to finally pull the trigger

    First day deadlifting in at least 6 weeks to heal my ankle. Gonna be pissed if it hurts in the morning

    In a sport with abusive pieces of shit, male coaches who groom female clients, and out loud racists he somehow takes the cake for most hated.
