    If you don't want to look like a woman on steroids, don't take steroids.

    Thanks guys! I took rockrunner's suggestion and went with the Swiftwicks since she did ask for socks, after all. I have to admit, these socks are pretty exciting. Not as exciting as my Angry Birds...

    It also looks like your upper back is rounding a bit, which makes it harder to keep your lower back flat and the bar close. Instead of looking down, try focusing on a point about 12 feet in front of...

    I squat heavy 3x/wk, but last Friday for shits and giggles, I decided to try a 20rep set. In case you're not familiar, it's a program where you do 20 reps with your 10-rep max, however long it takes...

    Could it be time to replace your shoes? It always sneaks up on me. I'm always like, " But I just got these!". Then I think back, and it's 6 months ago.

    It's not that white rice is wonderful, it's that it is the least-damaging of the grains. If you need a non-sweet starch, it's fine.

    No. In the correct position, you're just holding the bar against your back. Your back muscles form a kind of shelf for the bar if you're doing it right. Everything should stay nice and tight. Read...

    Regarding elbow position - Rippetoe emphasizes keeping the elbows behind the bar. Maybe that's just more of a cue? Like, if your elbows are habitually too far forward, thinking "behind the bar" when...
