    I don't get it. I recall half of OT got their panties in a knot about setting up a home gym because it'd be missing the cable crossover.

    because the powerlifting crew on this site hates them, so everyone decides to follow them. There's nothing wrong with it, and it's still a great exercise

    I like to finish my chest workout with crossovers. Bateman does it and his pecs are undeniably huge.

    dude I train hard and eat well. I'm making solid progress.

    and I was joking about the juice obviously.

    I've gone from 155lb to 203(as of today)

    you only want to be strong so genetics dont play as much (only my opinion) you will be fine over the years if ya consistent

    mmmm good point, I think it was simmons who said that most of his lifters were like 2 or 3 out of 10 genetically but still suceeded.

    Whereas with bb if you look like shit, you look like shit and just have to go freaky big like ruhl to make up for it.

    :ugh: i've never even used a cable crossover...

    i believe I said I'd rather use Steel Mill over Orlando BB because they have a pecdeck and it's about 5 minutes closer, all while being less expensive

    and i'm sure this convo was with gogz, and not you..and probably 2 months ago
