Tell me again how stressing a muscle doesn't make it stronger.

thats broscience thinking, bro; and not accurate.

There is "stressing" a muscle through reps and patterns, then there's "LIFT IT AND FEEL LIKE A BAUCE; BUT MOST LIKELY DAMAGE THE JOINTS, TENDENDS, AND MUSCLE BRO."

A proper deadlift without drop is a good "benchmark" to see where you are, but its a complete myth that it releases better growth hormones, and builds the muscles significantly opposed to standard bench methods.

Dead lifts are literally the best lift in terms of fitness. Aside from working a ton of muscle groups and burning a ton of calories in a short amount of time, it jumpstarts your chemical messengers that keep you healthy and fit.

I don't know what you're arguing against. I haven't made any of those claims.

I'm saying that it's a basic lift. Done with proper form, with appropriate weight, structured into a plan, you will get stronger. Plus you learn good hip hinge and flat back form for other lifts.

This is completely correct, although I am in favor of the clean&jerk as being the ultimate compound lift. I have no idea what is going on with Pen2's head or where he gets his lifting advice, but I just lol'd at everything he wrote.

Edit: I got back from the gym 30 minutes ago. Back day, so I did deadlifts. I grunted, sweated my *** off and worked extremely hard....for no benefit at all....rofl

Is a deadlift similar to the motion used by those long boat race teams at Ivy League schools?

I don't normally re-post internal company discussions on public forums, but this one just slays me.

The context is that I am currently doing the high-level design concept for a new product, which is part of a family of products which we will be introducing in about a year. In general, it is an AVB-based audio networking system for radio stations.

I have proposed that a small number of physical audio I/O be added to a routing control panel, on the basis that this will simplify the customer's installation experience and decrease the amount of on-site wiring which must be done, by concentrating the audio I/O directly at the control point rather than having it remotely located on some box some distance away. This will add around $40 in cost to a product which will sell for around $1,200, and it is something which none of our competitors are doing.

The response from the director of our department:
I agree w/ your stratification discussion, but PL (product line) freaks out when we offer more than the competition, as either the price becomes too high, or the margin goes too low.
Really? I'm specifically not allowed to design something better than what our competition already offers? That's the upper limit of what I'm allowed to do; what other people are already doing?

FML.

Don't feel bad joe. I'm only allowed to design stuff that's as good as but way more expensive than.

Oh my gods, you have -=> NO IDEA <=- what you are saying here. We are literally not allowed to use any fans at all, anywhere.

None.

No fans.

Not even in the big central frames that are designed to live in a rack room full of server-grade computers and enterprise-scale routers. Not even when we're dealing with products that contain a dozen or more FPGAs, lots of analog amplifiers, and multiple power converters on every single card (some of which are inverting, to make -19v out of +48v).

We get to figure out how to dissipate a hundred watts or more using nothing but convection. Even when the cards in the frame are freaking HORIZONTAL, and we're dealing with a box that fits into a rack and must be assumed to have other boxes mounted directly above and below it with zero clearance.

Fans... Don't talk to me about fans. It's practically a religion here.

I want to start doing these but I really want to find someone who knows what they're doing to show me proper technique and (more importantly) watch my technique for a while so I don't get hurt.

I am watching the pilot of Breaking Bad.

We use fans in our products. It's just LVDS and **** but it gets warm enough.

Lifting is gay. Get a real job, build muscle on job, profit.


I doubt most gyms would appreciate me smoking while running on a treadmill or doing bench presses.
