comment Predicted 1RM accuracy
@haywire Whoops, I missed that. It's still on the long side, which is to be expected for a 10RM effort, but it's in the realm of reasonable. I will say that a 10RM attempt has a lot of variance in predicting a 1RM attempt, but 6-7 seconds between reps in the deadlift is a bit long but reasonable to consider a set.

comment Does going to the gym negatively impact growth in height?
-1 until I hear some explanation of how chest or back related lifting will stunt growth, with or without calling upon bone density.

comment Predicted 1RM accuracy
@AlexL I wondered that, but OP defined it as "time from first rep to last pull divided by reps" and 150kg is exactly the spot where a lot of people start saying "HOLY HELL THIS IS HEAVY" and taking a looooong time between reps

comment How do I increase my flat barbell bench press?
@RobSterach I did, and I'm not entirely clear why. Benching 235lbs after 5 months is, shall we say, slightly different from benching 405lbs after 5 months. In one we're talking approximate weekly increases of 5 pounds; in the other, close to 15.

comment How do I increase my flat barbell bench press?
@RobSterach Horse puckey. There are plenty of people who can bench 235 after five months of hard training.

comment Is running on treadmills easier than running outdoors because the ground is pulled beneath the runner?
@bdsl Not at all. In one scenario my leg is being moved by an external force. In the other I am exerting force.
