Needless to say, there are many who would be very happy to look that "heavy".

I continue to be awed by your big starting sets on the D3 pull-ups and push-ups.

That's a terrific link on chin-up/pull-up technique. I always go chest to bar, but I'll have to think more about these rounding the back and shoulder position issues. Thanks for posting that.

Great stuff! It would be interesting to know how much difference full ROM pull-ups would make.

      I thought I'd bump myself up to Level 8 for a bit to see how much it will help me on Level 6 (where I really belong). It was much harder. Durr.

Hi! Just entered the forum and I will try level 1 today. Great body! Very anxious to get started!
I didn't see it yet but what nutrition plan do you do!?
