Your opinions on 5/3/1 Boring but big Dai 12 20 hoursDai (181): @FiremanSi Ah I thought so at first @nine0seven Already tried PHAT, but that was about a year ago. Also then it was just to much volume and after seeing a video with Jason Blaha where he talked about novice lifters are trying to be advance, it felt like that was what I was doing. So I feel right now that I don't need to do all of those reps and sets, I want to focus more on getting the lifts ups and get bigger while getting stronger, as I feel...

Squat form check & critique Ravenfraust 17 2 daysRavenfraust (7): I know I need to fix that. But would goblet squats help with improving my form? I don't really know the idea position for high bar squat to be honest. I don't really have decent muscle development at the moment so I can't really figure out where to place my bar. On my traps or between my traps and shoulders. Just read strongliftf 5x5 squat technique. I'm suppose to be doing a low bar instead of a high bar squat -.-"

I think at this point where I'm at I need to manipulate leptin. Could be cortisol from life stresses also, and have begun to take supps/herbs which have been known to lower cortisol levels. I'm shredded to bits around my abs its just a little bit on my sides I need to...
