    Nice benching Timbo.

    I can't wait to see you dressed up in the weightlifting leotard. Its going to be sausage-and-2-veg delicious.

    ^^ Didn't get to test it this week but it should be around 90kg, which is my previous best. I'm guessing that it won't take long to get better than that. Technique and flexibility are improving which should be great.

    ^^ Thanks dude. I'm sure if you keep practicing it you'll get better.

    I'm likely to take a week off from lifting this week. I'm hoping to get some weightlifting shoes this week so I may get tempted to try them out but aside from that it will be some recovery time :linedrunk:

    Great work Timbo, and yea that weightlifting shit can get expeinsive you should see powerlifters get piassed after busting a $100+ Suit on a squat or dead.

    ^^ Always has to be someone with the snatch joke



    The place that was meant to sell weightlifting shoes didn't. It sold wrestling shoes..... kinda different. So I'm still hunting. I'm missing lifting already even though it has only been a few days. On the plus side we're going shopping with our K-Rudd Kash for a rowing machine and may be able to find some lifting shoes.

    what's the difference between the wrestling and weightlifting shoes?

    personally I love my wrestling shoes but haven't lifted in them but I could see why they would be great when squatting
    real flat and lots of grip which wouldnt allow for any slipping at all


    I love the pump because when the pump arrives it's better than cumming. And because I really like working out a lot, it's like I'm cumming all day.

    ^^ Wrestling shoes have little to no heel, and generally tie to above the ankle (correct?)

    Weightlifting shoes have a hard sole, usually made of wood, with a heel of somewhere around 1". The hardness of the sole and the elevated heel puts the body in a good position to lift and squat but without the soft cushioning that can upset the motion.

    Think of weightlifting shoes as sports shoes with a hard sole. If you have ever squatted in a running shoe you will know that spongy feeling you can get when squatting. Not something that is good for a solid, heavy squat.

    alright now I understand what you mean
    I've never even seen weight lifting shoes

    Wrestling Lyon: check the new article I posted. The guy in the vids is wearing them.

    El Freako: We could have heaps of snatch jokes. Stuff like; I've got a big snatch, it's from all the stretching my penis does. etc etc etc.

    Well the weightlifting shoes were a bust. I could only find lame ones that were meant for powerlifters (which they don't wear anyway). Every store I called they had no idea what I was on about. I also went through a few shoe stores and they couldn't help either. One store we went into and I described what I wanted to one of the clerks that we had to drag away from a riveting conversation he was having with the other clerks. He then proceeded to show my Nike Shox, saying that all the "weightlifters" at Fitness First wore these....:angrydude: I re-explained more slowly this time and he finally got it, said they didn't have any, and went back to his precious little conversation while I spotted a pair of shoes that would have done the trick. So I thought; FUCK HIM and left.

    On the plus side we bought a rowing machine. The missus will now be happy and I may actually do more cardio than the 3-5mins of skipping I do now.

    ^^ Yeh I know about the online sales, I was actually hoping to try some on before buying was the thing. If I look through any of my shoes (and clothes for that matter) I take a range of sizes, dependant on brand and style. Not really keen on ordering a pair from outer Mongolia only to find that they are too narrow or a half size small.

    But as I have no other option I will order some soonish. Probably figure out which ones I like the most. Do-Wins are getting good raps, and they seem to be less narrow and tall like the AdiStar and Nike Vegesaus (sp?).
