Herderdude Takes On The Strongest Man in Pittsburgh

Page 4 of 12 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. 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.

  6. 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)

  7. 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

    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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  16. Briefs are here! Tried them on, but didn't get them all the way up. I have to take a day off sometime this week, and today is that day, so no attempting any squats or deadlifts in my briefs today.

  18. That was... interesting. Hard to get down to the bar in sumo pulls, and I see now why guys squat only to parallel in multi-ply gear. 225 got stopped cold at parallel and 295 locked up on me an inch high. It wanted to pull my butt underneath me once I got below parallel. Without a belt, the briefs don't do much.

    I took great care to jack it up really high and really worked on having vertical shins. I also didn't go any wider than I could get my knees to track. I think my knees were alright, but I don't know. I made the mistake of putting my briefs on right away instead of getting mobile first.

    It'll be interesting. I'm **** out of luck if I can't do the June 2nd meet or fly back home in July. Was planning to make the switch after one more raw meet. Not too much out here
