    For me, it gives me the best arm pumps. Not sure if that translates to size or not.

    My lower back can act up from time to time. Over the years I've learned to listen to it

    Yep, since my hernia I have been super cautious. I feel it here and there especially when I have to brace a lot. Most unsupported back things are out.
    Even felt a little with heavy seated db presses last week on shoulder day. Today I stayed with more reps.

    The last time we did hams, Goon went up to 315 on Romanians even though his back wasn't feeling 100% - he has done 405 a bunch of times. But thankfully he didn't push it today, as a lower back strain will fuck up anyone's day - or month, at our age.

    for sure. I messed around with 405-455 a few times on that movement, but that was when I was pulling high 6s. No more of that for me.

    Hahaha , thank you trying to save my knees and lower back at this point . I squatted 5 plates + for years and my legs never really grew. So know I'll abuse them with volume and see what happens
