N-no! That's not cheating!
My OHP is legit

What’s stretch reflex?

Muscles can work like an elastic band when stretched during a lift. When the muscle is stretched it will naturally try to return to normal (elastic band snapping back) that elastic force can be used to help with the lift

Meh, I use it too but it obviously makes part of the movement easier

Yep that counts as a rep bois

To do strict ohp reps, bring the bar to a complete stop at the bottom for at least a full second

>"ahh, feels good having FULLY completed a set of barbell rows!"’s supposed to touch your torso?

Bro he barely touched it


Did that with arginine but had sex with extra help because of it

When people who don't go to the gym ask me how much I lift, I include the bar. When people who DO go to the gym ask, I don't include the bar.

Is this appropriate?

Just take the average between the two

include the bar for people who dont lift, because they won't know to subtract 45lbs. For people who do lift, count it by plates.

No, you always count the bar

No. Just enough completely retract your back. Anything else is just a bent over bicep curl

>35lb bar
Wait how do you tell if one bar is lighter than others? We have some that are thicker or shaped a little differently, but I thought all the barbells weighed the same.

>doing barbell bicep curls
>curl the bar slightly upwards to rack it
>still counts as a rep

I always do two, then deadhang, two then deadhang. I apologize it in my head with keeping the biceps under tension or something

yeah. If someone who lifts asks you how much a lift is, you should include the bar if giving a lb or kg number. The alternative is to list in plates, using "half" to mean 25lb plates

2pl = 225
2.5pl = 275
3pl = 315
