re: Approaching 400 on bench - Macrell
Yeah my PR is 435 as well so right now I'm riding some muscle memory through a linear style progression. I'm a big believer in close grip bench for over all bench strength. I was just curious as to what supplemental lifts work for the average joe. I've played with floor presses once or twice but tha...

Approaching 400 on bench - Macrell
I ruptured my patellar back in June so I decided I would just go to town on the bench. Monday's is a max effort day (quickly work up to 1rm or 3rm). Thursday is speed day (65-70% of 1rm 10sets of 3 reps). My assistance exercises have consisted of DB flat&incline bench and lying triceps Ext or skull ...

Merrell Hiking Shoe - Macrell
I've been thinking about making the transition to wearing these as my everyday winter/fall shoe. I've never liked wearing work boots and my old running shoes (brooks ghost or asics nimbus) aren't "tough" enough. I feel like the hiking shoes land somewhere in between. Is this an accurate assessment? ...

re: Anyone here done an Ironman? - Macrell
My dad (a former marine DI) has done 2 full iron men and several halves. He's an endurance freak. Countless marathons and several ultras. He posted an 18hr44min 100 miler in 2009. I've done a half marathon and have had serious thoughts to do a half iron man but I'm not willing to leave the weight ro...

Financial donations Katrina vs. Harvey - Macrell
I was 16 when Katrina came through. I hate to admit it but I don't remember what the response was like donation wise. I'm from north Louisiana and I was more worried with football and girls so I really wasn't paying attention. I'm ashamed to admit that. So what I'm asking is this: how does the respo...

re: If you could change one thing about your family growing up what would it be? - Macrell
I don't post much but I'll bite on this. My parents divorced when I was 6 (my bro was 2). They pretty much spent my entire childhood taking jabs at each other through me and my brother. Lots of psycological games and garbage like that. Looking back both were pretty crappy in that department. So m...

What to do for 6 weeks off (INJURY) - Macrell
I need lots of advice guys. My activity level is about to be non existent because I ruptured my patella tendon yesterday. Surgery, 6 weeks off, pain and suffering etc. Obviously no lifting or running, but what about nutrition? I'm 28yo, 250 lbs and I lift and run a lot. I generally stick to high...

re: 1000lb - Big Three Lifts - Macrell
Very natural lol. I've never competed nor trained to compete. There's a lot of guys my size that are much stronger than me. Honestly it takes a lot of time and focus to get my press to increase however my squat stays very high without much work. Also I have been 230-260 since I was 15 and I'm 28 now...
