    Congrats! Job well done.
    do you guys read bill simmons? when he does his mailbags, they always end with people writing in crazy questions, so he sort of puts those at the bottom of the piece, adding a "wait for it," "almost there" and finally a "these are my readers" comment at the end. that's what this forum is becoming with all of the perverts here nowadays. totally awesome btw...

        Only you can prevent this thread from turning into another Gorbacle.

          No need for a codename for Rip threads since I very much respect religious cults! So just make ad notam in the OP that the thread is dedicated to RIP nut hugging or internal chat of the Starting Strength congreation and I promise that I will stay away! But my comments was kind of asked for here...

            i thought you had me on ignore?

            no nut hugging going on here. just some people trying to have a discussion when you butt in with insults, put-downs, name calling and whatever else it is you do here. the first sentence you typed was absolutely spot-on. for a second, you seemed credible. then you had to keep typing..

              Yes, I had you on ignore together with the two other Starting Strength evangelists, and it would have stayed that way if I hadn't realized that Rich, Quikky and you still quoted and commented on my postings! So even if I try to ignore you very lost and mistaken guys as much as possible, I still like to have a possibility to a proper “self-defense” if I am going to post on this forum at all...

                Why do you post on this forum? Just curious. I'm not sure I understand what you have in common with Primal Blueprint principles.

I gained muscle on milk myself from the age of 15, so I am not against that at all, but using excessive body fat as a "method" to lift more is not a good idea unless you are a hardcore power-lifter wannabe. Lifting more is not necessary correlated to real strength either, unless you actually grow de facto muscles in the process. The Rippetoe strategy of making a heavy weight as light as possible by using the whole body, benching with butt contractions, shortening ROM etc. is not the most effective to grow real strength IMO, but it may be effective to cheat up the weight, if thatís important for you...
                  I am interested in what you are saying about strength.
                  Would you give me a more detail on your philosophy about strength training?
                  If you can recommend a book, video or website, that would be great, too

                    for the record, i am not a ss evangelist. I've never done ss. i never will do ss. it actually blows my mind that you can be 51 years old and as ignorant as an 8 year old child. you seriously don't have the first clue when it comes to strength training, you definitely live by the work harder, not smarter mantra (as evidenced by the amount of work you do, with such minimal results) and you throw around words like "retard" without a care for who you may or may not be offending. I've stated this before, and i will state it again. if you go on jumping in to threads and posting offensive names and derogatory comments, i will report you. grow up and act like an adult.

                      What kind of question is that RichMahogany, is this forum a religious cult also? Am I now supposed to confess adherence to the indisputable principles of primal blueprint, and confess my unholy sins that I am in fact a heretic by drinking diet coke and training high volume?

                        I'm not questioning your right to post here. I'm questioning your motivation. I don't get why you want to. What's the point? What does it do for you?

                          dude is a troll in the purest sense of the word. he gets his jollies off of purposely chiming in on topics that he disagrees with, all while calling people names and slamming their beliefs at the same time.

                            I have to say that, as men who are both in their 50s, Gorbag looks much better than Rippetoe.

                                You can't disagree with something you don't understand. If he actually understood Starting Strength and what Rippetoe advocates and disagreed with it, it would be called a debate. Since he clearly does not understand it, his "disagreements" do not even apply, hence this is just another Gorbacle.
