comment Rest between warm-up sets
Ah yes, I was getting the term assistance exercises mixed up with what GreySkull call "additional" exercises. Biceps curls for example, my goal is mass and strength here with 10-12 rep sets.

Makes sense, however I would have thought that limiting rest periods on assistance exercises would bring fatigue on earlier, ultimately meaning lower work weights and thus lower strength gains, despite greater mass gains?

comment Chin-ups on a bar versus straps
Nice bar! Only one I've found locally in Australia is AUD180 with postage (150€). I'll check out the Home Depot equivalent this morning if I can get parts not requiring welding.

comment Why might assisted chin-ups not be recommended to build up to unassisted ones?
He also steers away from the assisted chin-up machines as well. I haven't seen his thoughts on partner assistance though.

Separated forum quotes so it didn't look like a single quote.

He mentions it every now and again in his forum. I won't link as I'm pretty sure it requires login, but "Yes, ditch the band assisted chins lest you become extremely good at doing band assisted chins and little else.", "Band assisted chins are good for one thing, making you real good at doing band assisted chins.", and "If you're in a gym that has an assisted pullup machine, they probably have a pulldown setup. I like V handle pulldowns heavy and with good technique". I've never seen any reasoning beyond this. Of course I respect his experience, just interested in why it might be the case.

Not sure how I missed that. My apologies. I'll read and edit is possible.
