    To my eyes it looks much better. That "rounding" of the upper back isn't so much rounding as it is the natural kyphosis of the upper back. This will be more noticeable with some people than others....

    I would be interested to see examples of this. My guess is we'd disagree as to what constitutes rounding. There's only one lifter in my mind that does a pretty decent job of not rounding their lower...

    Haha thanks man! Indeed still kicking.

    That's a fair point. I'll add that slides are available (at least when I took the class). I'll also add that I would be interested in a book as well.

    IMO Classroom is really helpful for those interested in coaching/writing programs for 2 reasons:

    Another important part is whether you're following an annual plan. The answer to this question would change a lot whether or not you're closer or farther away from your largest peak of the year.

    Ehh, IMO this *rule* is bandied about way too much. You can recomp by gaining muscle and losing fat and staying at the same bodyweight. That's what I've done for a long time up to this point. It is,...
