    I can’t personally speak to him. I’m not super tuned in there, but I can name 4 Powerlifting coaches that I personally know that have done it. It’s predatory people going into a space and taking advantage of the power dynamic of a coach/client relationship

    Edit: One Two but I’ll just say that male coaches that have mostly a female roster definitely definitely follow a trend

    I hit 505 and 405 exactly
    245 on bench still, and did 150 strict press since they were testing those at my gym this week too

    Pretty pleased with not regressing on bench and hitting a new PR on the strict press without really training those lately

    Gotta stop skipping upper body day

    Have always struggled with consistent DB progression, definitely think I’m gonna buy those microgainz hensleya. Kinda brilliant idea for home gyms

    I saw that and thought, what a brilliantly simple idea.

    Really like damn, why couldn’t I think of that

    I have a nice DB collection but still some gaps in there.

    Really any lift where a 5lb jump is bigger than like 2%. Micro plates are a god send

    So I’m going to be announcing something pretty cool… a board of experts for GGL. I can get thoughts/quotes from them for articles, etc… and generally just build up some additional authority with them on the site as part of the “team”

    So far I have Aaron Horschig from Squat University (huge get), David Otey (advisor to men’s health mag and writer for muscle and fitness), Dana Santas (mobility expert and CNN Health writer. Husband is assistant director of health and performance for NY Yankees), and Ray Zingler (up and coming S&C coach and good friend).

    Ray has an in with Jamal Browner (he often trains in Ray’s gym) so I’m trying to add him.

    looking for some suggestions from y’all on who else to add. Would like to add PL (maybe Jamal), strongman, Oly, and CrossFit. Then maybe one or two more experts in the overall space. Someone like Kassem Hanson, who I can probably get.

    thoughts?

    Agree with Capstone 88

    are you going to move towards having them or future experts creating/producing content for GGL?

    PL & Oly it would probably be worth reaching out to Chad Smith & Max Aita.
