Herderdude Takes On The Strongest Man in Pittsburgh

Page 6 of 10 First ... 45678 ... Last

  1. 5/2 Bench!

    45x100 reps total
    95x12
    135x10
    185x8
    225x5
    275x3
    315x1
    335x3x2 PR and PR, butt came off a tiny bit on the very last rep

    Facepull/Pullaparts
    50x20x3/20x3

    High Pulley Rows/Band Pulldowns
    140x25,15,12,10/Greenx25,15,12,10

    Good day. First time I tried multiple reps raw with anything over 315. Wanted to mess around with my Rage today, but the benching was going too well. Coulda woulda shoulda done a Slingshot set, but I didn't. Leg drive was minimal today from yesterday's assault. PRs while losing weight AND in PCT? I'll take it.

  3. Get it! Good session, man. :thumbsup;
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  4. I almost called for 365, but I'm gaining powerlifting "training maturity" I'll hit my PRs on the platform, that's where it counts. Still time to build strength, not test it just yet. Really makes me confident to open at 335 again even with less direct benchwork (not much less)

  6. 5/3 RE Deads and Light Benching

    Sumo Pulls (briefs)

    135x6
    225x6
    295x6
    365x6
    415x3
    365x6

    Butt and hams are still shot, hence the briefs. Setup was much better by sitting quickly into position and pulling.

    Rep Benching
    135x8
    185x8
    205x8
    225x8
    245x8 add slingshot
    265x8

    BB Tri Extension/Floor Press
    135x20x2/135x15x2

    Got a little accessory pressing in. Good volume too. Whole posterior chain was hurting a bit, so I didn't do any deadlift accessory. My split isn't even a split any more, but I feel like I'm doing a decent job of cycling intensities.

  7. Setup Tweak - YouTube

    Sorry for the bad angle. Haphazard vid. Comments?

  8. Side angle or 45 degrees is the best for critiquing, but looks better than last vid I saw. Looks like you can still pull slack out of the bar and you're just gripping n ripping.

    I like it, man. Love the speed at which you get it off the floor, and I'm jealous of your form. Good pulling IMO.

    Definitely just gripping and ripping. I have to use a little downward force to get to the bar, but it's getting better as I lose weight.

    It's a benefit, the harder it is to get to the bar, the more you load the suit. Load it as much as possible, literally pull yourself to the bar and get tight as you can.

    Thanks, man. Put some bands around your thighs while you sumo pull light (warmup sets, speed work). You'll pattern so much better.

    So just pause a tick at the bottom to get the slack out and then go?

    Pulling yourelf to the bar, setting the hips as low as possible, and pulling your shoulders back should remove the slack. Then exert your power. It's just that little bit of bar bend that will rip you out of posture if you don't remove it first when it's heavy.

    You're absolutely right. That's precisely what happens.

  16. Dude, I'm really interested in your reasoning for your suggestion of dropping my opener a little, and going a little heavier on my second.

  17. I was thinking to do it to avoid the stigma behind that number. Open at 335 and take your second at 365 or so.

    Hmm, you're right 345 might have some bad ju ju...

  24. I can do one of those things-COD. I'm too fat & old to drink beer all day, still got 4 kids at home and a wife that won't kick me out yet.

  25. You know me guys, always got it rough. Took it pretty easy on the body this weekend, did some golfing, fixing up boats. I'm going to get some work in today if I don't have to work late. Just some easy lower body, heavy emphasis on mobility, keep the blood flowing. My weight is down to 217, so potentially going 198 in June. That remains to be seen, but be on the lookout for a bodybuilding lower body day today along with some rows.

  26. Bodybuilding? What is this, some type of witchcraft?
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  27. I would say bodybuilding is like potion-making. You have to bring together mass quantities of the right ingredients. And then shoot them into your ass.

  30. 5/7 RE Upper

    Bench
    225x12x3

    Band Lat Pull/Facepull
    Greenx15x4/50x15x4

    Lateral Raises (strict)
    25x12x3

    Hang Clean Complex (Triple Ext.x3, High Pullx3, Cleanx3, last one 3s paused front squat)
    Up to 185

    BB Curl
    Barx120, 100 in 4 sets, then 10x2

    I went off of the WS4SB rep upper template, adding in some hang clean practice as my brother guns for the school record board with a 255. He hasn't been cleaning, so we're crash coursing the clean. WS4SB has done wonders for him. Added about 120lbs to his total.

    High reps are such a bitch. Good session, nothing feels bad, did some front squats in the clean complexes and some 45lb hip snatches to overhead squats. Everything is moving pretty decent.
