Do you usually use such a short stroke when you lift heavy? 

Comment by Ben on April 11, 2014 at 5:07pm

@Michael D. Denny: Like it says this was a year ago, I was pretty sloppy because It was my first time w/ that weight. But yeah, I used to do short strokes but now id say its avg.

Right on. For whatever reasons, I feel a lot better with slow movements and really going for every inch of range of motion. I would compare the sensation with stretching or yoga. I try to really stretch the full range of motion on a lift.

Manly Artists & Connoisseurs

Sometimes a man feels he needs to express things visually that aren't all that attractive. Respect for our thoughts and ideas are hard to come by in our current "politically correct" world. No need to be polite here. Show us what you got. It could be a drawing, painting, political cartoon, caricature -- any kind of art -- by you or someone else.See More
