    Don't forget about lifting heavy... Maybe a no brainer, but it needs mention. I think finding a good program is a good idea too. Westside has a great philosophy that works for a lot of people. I personally respond more to rep work over speed work but it's still a good idea to work on speed since no one lifts a heavy weight slowly. I totally agree on saving your shoulders. A shoulder injury really killed my bench progress and it took years to build back up and breaking through was even tougher. I should be pressing mid threes but I'm at about 300 again.

    LOL. What is it with douche bags lifting weights in signlets? I see them in my gym all the time and I wonder what kind of mental process they go through that make them think it is "cool" to go out in public like that.

    Good article. I do most of those things and have actually just taken a good month or two off bench to focus on dumbell presses. I feel that it's helped a huge amount. Did someone say 'why would you train in a singlet?' my answer is why wouldn't you. If you're just a poser who goes to state people down and flex in the mirror then you're a wanker. I find I feel less resricted in my movements when I have a singlet on. It's also a hell of a lot cooler when training (temperature wise)

    I wore a singlet in wrestling cause it made sense, but for weight lifting, unless your in a comp/about to be in one where you would wear one. I think it is not necessary to the highest degree. I would feel cool too if I trained naked. Also would feel less restricted if I was naked.
