    That tire flipping looked brutal! Good work man. Sub'd to your youtube.

    EDIT: Being that I post from the phone 90% of the time I missed some of those vids. No idea you had 50 of em!

    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.

    Hey I ain't gonna rag on that ****. You pulled it back in and dipped it. Looked okay to me.

    Thanks, Paul.

    Just ordered my 2m Blue Arrows and the Wrap Adaptor wrap roller. 'Cause I ****in hate stretching and rolling knee wraps. Will update on how that works. I think I'm going to like both things. 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.

    4/17 Logwork

    GPP: Flipped the little tire correctly. Probably 20-odd times. Each one was much smoother, a little more taxing on the lungs. Impossible to do in gravel, I had to find bare patches in the lot. Now I have to force myself to get back in there and flip it one after the other.

    Log Press Max Test (no clean)
    75x...
    165x3
    215x1
    255x1
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hru75cnbNAI

    Speed Log (Jerks)
    165x6x3

    Incline
    Barx20
    135x12 not feeling it in the 'bows and shoulders

    Bench (pinkie on ring, no tuck)
    Barx20
    135x8 add Blast, bands (maybe 60?), and 60# chain
    135+bands+chainx10 (floated one inch off chest ~205 at bottom)
    185+bands+chainx10

    Tri Ext
    135x20 lots of ouches today

    Facepulls/Pullaparts
    (50x10/light redx10)x5

    My body wants me to not press until Sunday, that much is clear. Used Prilepin's chart for the speed log today. I got faster each rep of each set as I remembered to drive hard with my legs, push my head out the window, and slam my feet back into the ground. I did a LOT of C&J in HS and college. My technique actually used to be pretty good then.

    Tire went much better with proper technique. (See vid below)

    4/18 Slingshot came!

    Tried on my hip circle for some skwats. That will work well in the future.

    Then bench.

    Bar x a million
    135x5
    225x2
    295x1 rough on the bis, added slanger
    295x1 cake
    345x1
    385x1
    405x2

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_CI8nI_xdtU&feature=plcp

    The Maddog is definitely a sturdy piece of material. TONS of rebound. I need to learn to press with it instead of letting it get the weight off of my chest. The last couple inches of lockout were the toughest. Good to know. I'm used to getting squished on the way down.

    Had to do it, man. I haven't taken a day totally off since Saturday. 295 hurt a lot raw. The slanger definitely helped the ouchies. It will build some serious triceps beef.

    I always thought I had to do regular bench to get the most out of it but Rodja showed me it is great for floor press and close grip as well. That, ram, or anything like it is good investment.

    Definitely! This is great for saving the shoulders. Incline presses would be great.

    Jim, I will get back to you on the matter later, when I'm sober.

    My boss told me I was a puss c for not being able to flip the 840lb tire. I'd tell my boss otherwise, but he has three black belts and eats Copenhagen.
