    Never understood what bodyweight has to do with pressing a weight away from your body, pullups yes, should just be a set weight of say 90kg for reps

    it would only really fit on a lower load, upper pump day but they fall on a Thursday when the benches are in heavy demand.

    Lifting in just a belt, knee sleeves and wrist wraps

    Squat, bench, deadlift and any other weight on a bar type exercise done for a max single run through wilks will tell you who the strongest person is lb for lb on the forum. It's what is was designed for pretty much
