I wouldn't train for it specifically, I just mean getting more efficient with timed training in general.

And it definitely would, dude. Getting stronger and more efficient makes for better hypertrophy potential. Me being 'strength efficient' enough to bench 225x10 also allows for more muscle damage with more weight. That's why all natural athletes should incorporate strength training.

Gotcha, gotta increase that workout density.

And sure, obviously I've still been getting stronger in the higher rep ranges. It's just that the way I tend to perform my reps and set up my program is more ideal for size and hypertrophy instead of overall strength. Still excited though, I'll have internet and whatnot while I'm down in Texas so you'll get to see how I'm doing down there. It'll be fun.

I probably wouldn't train a 100 rep CGB for time. Its just a fun thing to do with a group every now and then. I was surprised I did as well as I did, considering I don't CGB ever.

And I can't wait until tech school though, if I don't have a ton of time to lift during the week, I'll be doing a ton of low rep/strength work on the main lifts. Then some full body hypertrophy work on the weekends. If that all works out anyways. I think 4 months of powerlifting style training would do me some good in terms of strength and packing on some overall mass.

Isn't your grip already behind though?

And I'm saying hook grip will improve your overall grip strength way more than using straps - which will do nothing for you.

By about 20 pounds on the deadlift, and I can row 225 for a couple without straps.

And I didn't say straps improve my grip. I do mostly strapless work, I just add in straps for fun once a week or two. Still, I have never heard that hook grip inherently improves your grip, just that it's an easier grip variation like mixed grip. I can mixed grip deadlift just fine without straps, I just don't like doing it.

The whole point of straps is to make grip no longer be a limiting factor, so if your grip is failing WHILE wearing straps, you're wearing then wrong. Relying on straps too much can really make your grip weaker in comparison though.

Using hook instead of straps will make your standard double overhand stronger. Of course you should be doing extra grip work anyway, obviously. Using 'wanting a stronger double over' as an excuse to use straps instead of hook is ridiculous.
User avatar
#41365 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Of course using hook will make me stronger, it's a stronger form of a grip because the thumb is more secure, it creates the same effects as straps. Which is greater energy transfer to the bar allowing greater strength production.

I'm not competing, so I have no reason not to use straps as long as my grip doesn't completely fall behind, which I won't let that happen for greater pulls.

The degree to which I out-strength you, not just in 1RMs (which would be more a product of nervous system efficiency), but also in reps (335x23 on DL, 225, 2x10 on pause bench) suggests that I have more muscle mass in those areas, not accounting for height.
User avatar
#41379 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
You also have to realize that I don't train those movements as often as you do, movement patterns and technique efficiency is a huge part of moving more weight, I've gone months without training bench, rows, deadlifts, to strengthen my pullups, chinups, dips, RDLs, OHP, rear OHP. I focus on a much higher variety of lifts than you.

My whole point in this whole conversation is that there are far more variables involved in strength then just "more muscle always equals more strength".

Yes of course you measure larger, you're a larger human being than I am, that's what I was saying. Your arms don't look like 18s outside of the context of you being really tall, they just don't. I was absolutely shocked when you told me they were 17s or whatever they were at the time, because you don't look it. You're a big dude, but you've only been lifting a couple years. Once again, not taking anything away from you at all, you've obviously put in a ton of hard work, however most guys workout for 5+ years at least before getting 18s. How many inches your legs, btw? Just curious. Mine are 28s, but I'm obese.

And yes, I know that, however it seems to be the case that taller people often have the genetic predisposition to be bigger in general anyway. That's why most high level Strongman competitors are 6'5+.

Weight and bf% are fucked because of how many other variables there are like bone size and density. I'd probably actually be ripped and shredded around 170 (I'm really fuckin fat).
User avatar
#41378 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Me being a larger human being to a degree is true, I'm not arguing with that, and I also agree that I have a higher threshold for sheer muscular size. Honestly I'll have to check about my legs, but I get more comments on how big my legs and ass are instead of my arms. Maybe I'll find a way to measure them tonight or tomorrow.

And I knew that when I was making doing the math, but I was doing it more as a guideline then saying "look at how much muscle we both have for sure". I wasn't expecting to go into detail about this honestly so I didn't think it would be a huge deal.

Using hook instead of straps will make your standard double overhand stronger. Of course you should be doing extra grip work anyway, obviously. Using 'wanting a stronger double over' as an excuse to use straps instead of hook is ridiculous.
User avatar
#41365 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Of course using hook will make me stronger, it's a stronger form of a grip because the thumb is more secure, it creates the same effects as straps. Which is greater energy transfer to the bar allowing greater strength production.

I'm not competing, so I have no reason not to use straps as long as my grip doesn't completely fall behind, which I won't let that happen for greater pulls.
User avatar
#41367 - studbeefpile (12/25/2015) [-]
Isn't your grip already behind though?

And I'm saying hook grip will improve your overall grip strength way more than using straps - which will do nothing for you.

#41370 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
By about 20 pounds on the deadlift, and I can row 225 for a couple without straps.

And I didn't say straps improve my grip. I do mostly strapless work, I just add in straps for fun once a week or two. Still, I have never heard that hook grip inherently improves your grip, just that it's an easier grip variation like mixed grip. I can mixed grip deadlift just fine without straps, I just don't like doing it.

Anything that uses your hands instead of straps is going to be better than straps. Mixed grip is silly though because of the asymmetrical tightening of your lats.

I agree that hook is definitely a step up from straps in term of grip, obviously. But like I said, I'd prefer to just get stronger with a conventional grip.

Germany was not surrounded by war mongers. To say that Britain and France were hungry for a war against Germany is a severe lack of thought into the predetermined causes of Hitlers rise to power and the resulting conflict of WW2.

Germany was falsely blamed for the cause of WW1, and it caused the greatest economic depression Germany had ever experienced. These harsh policies against Germany were imposed by the allies because they feared another Great War and wanted to prevent one. France and Britain didn't respond to Hitlers calls to disarmament because that simply wasn't an option then as much as it is an option now. If they were such war mongers why wouldn't they have invaded when Hitler broke the treaty of Versailles when he began the build up of his forces in 1935? Instead they allowed his military buildup in hope that war wouldn't occur, they allowed his taking back of the Rhineland because they hoped war wouldn't occur, and they allowed his annexation of the Austrian nation because they had HOPED that war wouldn't occur. This also fed into the Allied idea of complete surrender, many German Generals individually sought peace with the allies as early as Stalingrad, but they would only accept unconditional surrender from the Fuhrer himself.

I think WW2 was entirely unavoidable after the way Germany was treated after WW1, ironically the allied treaties against Germany created the very environment necessary to start another conflict. Whether it would have been Hitler or another individual, it was going to happen regardless.

They were waiting for a more reliable excuse. Poland was the only nation invaded pre-war that the allies had a binding defensive pact with.
User avatar
#101787 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Wait, so you truly believe that the Allies were war mongers because Germany invaded a nation they had a defensive pact with, and that they honored that pact?

Now I'm not one to subscribe to the common modern ideal of "Nazi Germany was the epitome of evil and Hitler was the anti-Christ", but to truly honestly claim that Hitler didn't have intentions of setting up a greater Germany that exceeded traditional German lands is silliness.

He was fascinated by the idea of the American "manifest destiny" and wanted to create an entire German culture in the captured Slavic lands. His policies were absolutely aggressive in nature and an offensive war was his goal from the very beginning.
User avatar
#101791 - feelythefeel (12/25/2015) [-]
Germany sought comprehensive, mutually beneficial peace plans for years before the war, and rarely ever recieved a real response. This, combined with the Polish purging of German nationals, forced Hitler's hand. He knew he wasn't going to accomplish anything waiting at the negotiating table for children.
User avatar
#101795 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Once again, I agree that the allies were not entirely innocent in the manner they treated Germany, they didn't listen to anything Germany would propose as it was too soon after the first world war for the allied powers for them to consider any such proposals. But regardless if any of these " peace agreements" were taken seriously and implemented, I'm highly doubtful that Germany would not have continued to push for consolidation of German peoples, annexing Austria, the Rhineland, the Sudetenland, and even Czechoslovakia, and then ultimately invading Poland under the same causes as in our History. As I said, war was inevitable, and I blame the cause of it just as much on the Allies reaction after the first world war as I do Hitler in the 1930s.

Debatable. I think in the best case scenario he would have placed nonGermans into their own self-governing territories and annexed the traditionally German lands. He was pretty adamant about returning Germany back to its previous glory in terms of land.

Oh absolutely. The communist party was a rival of the German workers party, and Hitler hated communists. That's why I say it was inevitable.

Hmm, that's true to an extent but there's a looot of stuff that goes into it. Part of the reason you have more mass than I do (in only a couple areas....I'm pretty sure I've got you beat in the back and legs department...possibly chest because bench lyfe) is because you're taller than I am, - you don't have 17&1/2s or whatever just because you're super jacked, you have 17s because you're a giant already, then you also put work in - I'm not saying this to discredit any of your work, but when you look at most average height guys that have 17-18s, they're pretty damn huge. Typically the dichotomy between strength and hypertrophy becomes much more apparent with advanced athletes squatting 500+ and deadlifting 600+, intermediates such as you and I generally aren't experienced enough to have really made giant leaps in either direction. 90% of my training right now is hypertrophy work, I just throw in training maxes/over-warms, and the occasional day where my main work consists of triples - and even then I do high volume work afterwards. I'm honestly not doing a ton of just strength training right now, the main reason I'm stronger than you because I've just been working longer than you have. and I have genetics on my side with the bench - although you have no excuse not to be smashing my deadlift with those gorilla arm-hooks you got mayne.
User avatar
#41361 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
But generally my argument is still that stronger does not always equal larger unless there is a vast gap in strength. There's a ton of variables involved.
User avatar
#41359 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
I'm willing to bet I have a bigger almost everything in terms of inches, my legs are actually the largest part of my body proportionately. You may have me in the chest just because I'm not a barrel chested person and you seem to be.

And while the height thing is partially true about being bigger framed, I have to spread larger amounts of mass over a larger area, so someone smaller than me with the same amount of mass will look larger. And I don't naturally have a big frame, I'm naturally lanky with a smaller bone structure.

I was putting it more in terms of weight and bf percentage. If we put you at 20% bf at 225 that's at most 180 pounds of lean muscle mass. If you put me at 12% bf at 210, that's over 185 pounds of lean mass.
User avatar
#41376 - studbeefpile (12/25/2015) [-]
The degree to which I out-strength you, not just in 1RMs (which would be more a product of nervous system efficiency), but also in reps (335x23 on DL, 225, 2x10 on pause bench) suggests that I have more muscle mass in those areas, not accounting for height.
User avatar
#41379 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
You also have to realize that I don't train those movements as often as you do, movement patterns and technique efficiency is a huge part of moving more weight, I've gone months without training bench, rows, deadlifts, to strengthen my pullups, chinups, dips, RDLs, OHP, rear OHP. I focus on a much higher variety of lifts than you.

My whole point in this whole conversation is that there are far more variables involved in strength then just "more muscle always equals more strength".

I probably wouldn't train a 100 rep CGB for time. Its just a fun thing to do with a group every now and then. I was surprised I did as well as I did, considering I don't CGB ever.

And I can't wait until tech school though, if I don't have a ton of time to lift during the week, I'll be doing a ton of low rep/strength work on the main lifts. Then some full body hypertrophy work on the weekends. If that all works out anyways. I think 4 months of powerlifting style training would do me some good in terms of strength and packing on some overall mass.
User avatar
#41385 - studbeefpile (12/25/2015) [-]
I wouldn't train for it specifically, I just mean getting more efficient with timed training in general.

And it definitely would, dude. Getting stronger and more efficient makes for better hypertrophy potential. Me being 'strength efficient' enough to bench 225x10 also allows for more muscle damage with more weight. That's why all natural athletes should incorporate strength training.
User avatar
#41386 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Gotcha, gotta increase that workout density.

And sure, obviously I've still been getting stronger in the higher rep ranges. It's just that the way I tend to perform my reps and set up my program is more ideal for size and hypertrophy instead of overall strength. Still excited though, I'll have internet and whatnot while I'm down in Texas so you'll get to see how I'm doing down there. It'll be fun.

Yes of course you measure larger, you're a larger human being than I am, that's what I was saying. Your arms don't look like 18s outside of the context of you being really tall, they just don't. I was absolutely shocked when you told me they were 17s or whatever they were at the time, because you don't look it. You're a big dude, but you've only been lifting a couple years. Once again, not taking anything away from you at all, you've obviously put in a ton of hard work, however most guys workout for 5+ years at least before getting 18s. How many inches your legs, btw? Just curious. Mine are 28s, but I'm obese.

And yes, I know that, however it seems to be the case that taller people often have the genetic predisposition to be bigger in general anyway. That's why most high level Strongman competitors are 6'5+.

Weight and bf% are fucked because of how many other variables there are like bone size and density. I'd probably actually be ripped and shredded around 170 (I'm really fuckin fat).
User avatar
#41378 - marinepenguin (12/25/2015) [-]
Me being a larger human being to a degree is true, I'm not arguing with that, and I also agree that I have a higher threshold for sheer muscular size. Honestly I'll have to check about my legs, but I get more comments on how big my legs and ass are instead of my arms. Maybe I'll find a way to measure them tonight or tomorrow.

And I knew that when I was making doing the math, but I was doing it more as a guideline then saying "look at how much muscle we both have for sure". I wasn't expecting to go into detail about this honestly so I didn't think it would be a huge deal.

Depends on what I'm emphasizing. I have a day for both, so if I'm on my squat day I'll start off with squats and then do a deadlift variation like deficit deadlifts. If its my deadlift day I'll do pause squats, or box squats or something similar to supplement my regular squat.
