    These are with the rim still in it. By the time we got it back to my boss's house, it was dark.

    GPP today was cutting and loading about 3 cord of wood. Then we put the chainsaw to a better use and cut a foot and a half of sidewall off of each side. Tire now weighs 840. Tomorrow is Events day and we'll be making Atlas stones. I love that my boss has set aside all of his duties to help me with these implements, for the sheer fact that he thinks this stuff is cool.

    Fun day so far. Still have to Farmer's walk and deadlift 405 for reps. This isn't my tire, but it's pretty heavy and since it's short, it's hard to get it all in one motion. Flipping that more often will help me to be faster and more efficient.

    That tire bent me over and asked "Do you want me to lube up first?"

    And I said, "Naw, just stick it in there. Make it fast, and don't tell me when it's coming."

    That fourth flip was good because I actually got full hip extension and was explosive. Time to do some cleans. Deadlifting and farmer's walking now, then doing cleans.

    4/14 Event Day Part 2

    Dead reps
    405x6
    These sucked. I've gotten used to setting up between lifts and I don't do high rep deads. Also the straps keep me from getting my air. Excuses excuses. I'm not as strong as I thought I was.

    Cleans
    155x6x3
    205x1
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cWgXrMAT5_s&feature=plcp

    High Pulls (failed cleans
    225x4

    2 Board in Blast Shirt
    225x10
    295x10
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kKhwJ7ZMOQg&feature=plcp

    Done. Not enough work capacity yet.

    Turns out my tire flips were all wrong. I was doing what Pro Andy Deck calls the "ugly deadlift". Looks like I'll be doing my squat workout tomorrow and flipping the tire again. We'll show that tire who's a bitch yet!

    This is how you dispose of the 300lbs of rubber that you cut out of an 1100lb tire.

    4/15 ME Squats (and other fun stuff that happens when I get carried away)

    SSB Squat (feet WIIIIIIDE and IPF deep)

    Worked up to 335x3 100% raw (buried these, like Ed Coan deep)
    385x3 belt & wraps (also PR)
    425x1 PR +20

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_foMvF-Scxo This is the 335 triple and the 425 single.

    guy spotting me told me my left knee was getting wobbly, so I moved my feet in maybe 4" for 425. The result: I sat too far back, pushed my knees too far out and had to swoop my knees in to save it. Finished the rep after that. Maybe right at parallel.

    SSB GM
    155x8

    Vogelpullz (stolen from Marshall "Freakshow" Johnson, who stole them from the original freakshow, Chuck Vogelpohl)
    These are a rack pull done with a safety squat bar on your back. Only do these if you don't like yourself.
    155 SSB/135 rack x3

    Tried to do other things, but the low back was shot. GHRs sucked because Hammer Strength GHR's suck. This is when things got extremely interesting.

    Doubled up light orange band monster walks and side shuffles and backward monster walks (band at knees)x20min

    Doubled up light orange bodyweight box squatx20x5

    Band around upper thigh sumo pulls

    135x5
    225x3
    315x3
    405x1 tied PR, removed band
    425x1 PR +20

    The monster walks, band squats, and band pulls have opened up a whole new world for this guy. My ugly 500 squat will become a 500lb beauty on meet day 5/25. Who knows what I can sumo pull whenever I don't annihilate myself beforehand. My feet were collar to collar, I pushed naturally against the outside of my Chucks, my hips stayed in it, and while I was grinding off of the floor, I made it happen. I kind of expect to be weak off the floor sumo since I already am conventional, but Monster Walks as a warmup/preactivation will have me squatting more naturally and a hell of a lot stronger, and cause me to begin progressing at a rapid rate. Pure gold. Buying a Maddog Slanger and the Hip Circle from howmuchyabench.net tonight.

    Big things coming, boys and girls. Legs are already feeling it.

    4/16 Breaking in the Rage

    Lil bro did

    245x3x5

    I did 245 to a 3 board for 3

    315 to a 2

    405 dumped trying to drift

    405 no board, just taking it as low as the shirt would allow.

    Sleeves need to loosen up so I can get the shirt set better.

    Strong work with the SSB guy. The #425 went up almost as fast as the the #335. Looked plenty deep enough too.

    Haha those Vogelpullz. I know a guy who is attaching a band around his upper body/shoulders and pulling bar weight as well. I tried it and the feel is rather odd and a different load feel over the torso. Not sure what my carryover would be!?

    Good fun training here, keep up the strong work

    From what I hear, the pullz are good if you get yourself too far forward on your squat or deadlift. They teach you to sit back and muscle it up.

    Thanks about the squats. When I get a PR, that's usually when I stop climbing. Might go for 445 next week, maybe not. If I engage my hips properly, it should go up easily. Like how my knees got all wonky there?

    That makes some sense, especially if you are suited.
    I tend to be a bit more quad dom and use a slight heel.

Briefs, Slingshot, and Hip Circle should all be in by Friday, so life is freaking good. Speed Log session commences in T-45min

    That's what APT recommended for me, though he recommended 3m. I saw that it was $15 more, and homie don't play that. If I like what I have and I feel ready sometime in the future for 3m, I'm getting some got-damn APT Convicts. After getting 36in wrist wraps and not being able to feel my hands, I've learned my lesson as far as not starting with the top end stuff.

    EDIT: Thanks are in order for you and AZ for giving me the coupon code.

    Rodja's Metal Pro's. We happen to be almost exactly the same in lower body measurements, and I couldn't beat that price and them already being broken in.
