Sorry here it is.

As for the weight on a smith bar I wouldn't worry about it and just count the plate weight. Doesn't matter and it doesn't translate to Bb lifts anyways (ie if you bench 225 1rm max on a smith that doesn't mean you will with free weights). The important thing is you progress no matter the weight counted.

Just a quick note. Don't mistake me when I suggest the use of versa gripps when it comes to back work. Our goals may be completely opposite. I use versas for back to isolate the back....period. I use them to take away the grip strength as MUCH as I possibly can. Even if I am pulling five pounds or five hundred. I want to stimulate the back muscles not my grip, forearms, biceps....etc.  there are other days and other movements that those muscle groups are getting worked.

So decided to track my macros today.

Figured out my TDEE on IIFYM it has me at 2215 calories at 159 lbs.

I figured to work with 85% of that = 1882.

So today looks like this so far:

Protein 171g
Fat 34g
Carbs 132g
Calories 1518

So I need about 364 calories. Not sure how I'll make them up. I already ate twice since 4:30.

Did you end up spending most of that spare 364 calories on fats Sak?

I hope so. ;)

Yes as a matter of fact I did, and I enjoyed them very much. I ate 4 tbsp of Jif natural PB and a handful of almonds. Such torture.  :biggrin:

Thanks for the link. I'll check it out tonight. I plan on counting only the plates on the smith from now on. Now I feel bad cause I thought I was shrugging 255 lbs when it was only 215 lbs of plates.  :o

Ok, I get what you're saying. I only use the hooks for deadlifting really and only once my grip fails. So, how much of a difference do you think it makes when say using versa grips on a seated row, or wouldn't you do that? I can see how using the grips would pretty much make your arms another attachment point between the machine and your back.

I only just got some Versa Gripps and I love them.The grip is excellent,and another great thing is if I will ever have to dump the bar,all I will need to do is let go.First few times take a bit to adjust comfortably and learn how to wrap them best,but pretty easy to use.

Good point Pete. I never thought of that. I would not be able to dump the bar with the hooks. Ok, now I'm gonna have to look into this.
