Herderdude Takes On The Strongest Man in Pittsburgh

Page 4 of 10 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. 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.

  2. Ah, who am I kidding? I'm taking them for a spin while I have three strong spotters, even if they are drunk.

  3. 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

    If you go to estate sales and look around for deals, you'll find so much stuff. No resale value on weight equipment because most people don't get what we do. Everything you see in my shed has been gotten for less than $600 total. And I've bought and sold a leg press machine and slightly flimsier squat rack.

  23. 4/22 Squats

    Foam roll, monster walks, hip circle stayed on for warmup sets

    Worked up to 295x8 remove hip circle
    335x8 add belt
    385x2 add cheap knee wraps
    425x1 add Blue Arrow
    450x1 PR
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=plcp&v=2L2zln4QWLA

    SSB GMs
    155x10
    175x10
    205x10

    Seated SSB GMs
    115x10x2
    135x10

    RDL alternate conv and sumo
    225x10x4

    RFE Bulgarians
    BWx20x4

    Wheel of Death (standing)
    10x4

    Wanted to put briefs on today, but really there's no point when the upper back is the weak link. Same reason I didn't get to fully test the Blue Arrows. That's fine, I need to rest my biceps tendons and I need to build the upper back. ALWAYS MORE UPPER BACK! Seated GMs for the first time. Really crushed the lower traps. Gave me a better idea of how hard to arch my upper back during a squat.

    Happy that even though I folded like a cheap tent, I finished that sucker.

    Thanks, man. I just need to dial in that form at heavy weights. Now that I have a true 1RM, I'll do reps next week. These 60 second time limits on events are killing me. I get most of my reps in the first 30 seconds, chill for 15, and get a few more in the last 15.

    Such a grind, man. Some dude was eyeballing me between sets of Smith machine shrugs, so I couldn't miss that bugger.

  28. How were those blue arrows?

  29. The blue arrows are nice. Much thicker material than my cheap wraps. They're hard to crank on by myself they're so tough. Perhaps not as springy, but a lot more support. And they seemed just as comfy. The wrap roller was a huge success for pre-stretching the wraps.

    That's weird. Maybe mine are broken in a bit more. They're easy as hell by myself and a crap load of spring..
