    I might not understand the thread but, the idea that you have to train at a hardcore gym to get really big and strong....I believed that one for years.

    A power lifter once told me that if you do a very high rep ( 20 or so) at the end of your bench workout it would make you weak....he said your muscles would forget the heavy weight.

    This comes from maxot training, which said muscle have memory. If you finish your workout with a high rep low weight, your muscle will remember this set and not all the others.

    Sounds like bullsh** to me.

    Placing the labels of the plates outward will cause an imbalance on the bar.

    Why do we all insist on putting the labels inward? Is there any logical explanation for this?

    A myth my mother always told me

    Don't work out, you're too young and you won't grow :P

    The truth is, she's half right... Your spine rings get squished up together and the lubrication between them diminishes, so the bones rub against each other and you will lose some degree of height.

    I just throw the plates on, never thought about having the labels out!
