If you look at some of my videos you can see how I wear my belt. I wear it high and looser the heavier I go. I have no issues. It's not a competition belt because its Velcro. I think it comes down to having the right belt too. I pull 550 and I'm your build/height but a little lighter. I haven't seen you but from you're description we sound similar. Any more luck?Log: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/226478-country-gets-huge.html#post3905023

So far I've had only partial success. I put the belt way up. And I could still pull, but It doesn't seem to help much. Then it moves around too much. Idk I think I'm just giving up to easily. I'll try using it on my speed work, that'll give me an extra thirty or so reps a session. Should be good practice. We'll see how that goes. I'll let you know.

It may just take reps and time to get a comfortable groove with it. Mine goes under my ribs. When I pull my core is tight and my lower ribs slide under the belt at the bottom of the rep. Maybe you are holding your air in your diagram and pushing your ribs out over the belt? You want to like. Fill your body and stomach but not do that.

For some reason I was able to use my belt on all but my heaviest set, but still getting more used to it, high and loose with the buckle behind me.
450x1x1 the program calls for two reps, I just couldn't get it, no sleep, just fxcked it up. I'll probably repeat this week.
Bent over rows 245#
Stiff legs 275#
I've had an off day, but my back stayed straight as a board on even the heaviest set. Something that I've been really slacking on lately. I got a big chest, and figured out if I go a tad wider with my hands, I can get my chest through MUCH easier. It's really helped.

Solid worn for an off day. I would just say you may wanna see how you feel if you plan to repeat this heavy of a week two weeks in a row. Sometimes it takes longer than that to fully recover for near maximal deads. Don't wanna see you get hurt on the journey. You obviously know your body, but just some food for thought.

The calculator on the C&P routine is a nice touch, but it puts in figures for you to simply calculate as a start and finish, whether or not you are accustomed to those heavy of jumps ie: #425 1x2, last week and a #25 jump in a week 1x2, might be a lot when one is getting up over 90% of your maxes. Just sayin'!?
Thinking out outloud: The next weeks W/O has you dropping back (slight breather) to about 87% x3x3. (still not real light and may be taxing!? Just not sure if you repeat again 4th week, it will be better or push an earlier peak!?

I like Paul's advice bud.
Ive always had an interest in Coans programs. I like 5/3/1 but I wish I had chosen Coans just to peak on everything before my meet.
I pulled conventional for the first time in weeks yesterday from a deficit in a belt. I didnt really find any issue with it. It did push up into my gut when I got into position and made me wanna vomit lol

Well should I back off for a week, maybe just do the speed and assistance work? Or take a real Deload and just take it real easy next week. Then repeat this week?
I really do think it was just a sleep issue. Everything else has been pretty good and all my lifts are returning to where they were pre surgery. So I think it was just an off day. But I'm willing to back off a week, just looking for advice on how easy I should take it.
As a side question. Anyone ever used a Hip Circle?
09-16-2013, 07:10 AM
I am not sure a deload will necessarily give you that bigger jump in strength. Maybe the week 5 (or 6) #425 1x2 again, you will get 2 good clean smooth reps no hitch and week 7 #450 x1x2 you get both clean!? (<Maybe reassess after this one!? to see how they go or feel!?)
I know you want to get back to where you were pre injury, (been there done that) but it might pay, to be a bit more patient and a little less aggressive on the weight jumps.
09-16-2013, 07:45 AM
To be fair, I meant the belt hurt, not the reps.
Eeeeffffffff, fine. You're probably right, it's probably an ego thing. Maybe I'll lower the numbers and keep progressing through the program, using 475 as the target number, maybe 480.
09-16-2013, 08:39 AM
Hey, okay gotcha, (I thought it read hitched, not hiked, my bad) you know yourself better than anyone. I was more or less going by your 4th week and missing a rep but as you say too, maybe some missed sleep and just a bit under rested.
Lastly, I don't know if you are a person who more thrives on an almost grinder type harder rep(s) or less intense. I know a few guys who do not recover well if they are going to heavy ie: above 92% 95% and then others who can do better closer to all out intense W/O's. I seem to do better or recover with harder or more multi reps at times.
09-16-2013, 09:20 AM
Oh makes sense. Yeah I'm not sure exactly what I'll do. You're bound to miss a rep or two here and there. So I'll take a longer warm up next Saturday and see how everything feels. Then I'll make a judgement call. I go through bouts of very poor sleep, have since I was little. It's the main thing restricting my recovery. Otherwise it's very good. GHRP seems to help. Idk I'll see where this week takes me. But I want to hit a strong 500 lbs. so if that means 6 more weeks or 16 more weeks I'm fine with it.

Maybe I'll try to get video of a few sets this week. People here have been offering lots of advice I may as well do my best to accept it.

I have a hip circle. I do monster walks, bodweight squats, and sumo pulls with it. It's pretty awesome.

400 x 3 x 3 (easy)
325 x 3 x 3
275 x 3 x 5
The assistance work was quick but rough. Didn't mark down weights but they weren't as heavy as they should've been as I just worked with a partner and he's not as strong. Ah well.
09-22-2013, 03:37 PM
Not bad at all man! If 400x3 is easy, then you will be back to 500 sooner than later!
500 is my goal as well, but I still have a bit of work to go. Went 415 x 3 the other day but it was fuggin rough, hard to hold those shoulders back, rounded pretty bad on the last lift.
09-22-2013, 04:32 PM
I've been focusing on keeping my back real straight, I've found a few unorthodox tricks that have helped quite a bit. Like for one I've put my hands out further, which increases my range of motion, but it allows me to push my chest through much easier, it's actually made a huge difference in my posture.
415 x 3 is solid, 500 is a milestone for sure, I cannot wait to hit it again, and hopefully in competition.

Good job on the squat, dude
09-22-2013, 07:00 PM
That's a good strong squat, man. Nice deadlifting as well.
09-22-2013, 11:17 PM
I'm built to bench honestly. I got T-Rex arms. But my squat is seems to never plateau, just slow and steady gains.
Also my squat barely dropped after my surgery. Which is partly due to the fact that 2 days after my surgery, I went against my docs recommendation and I went in and squatted. I still wasn't able to see then, which is always a fun experience. Squatting completely by feel lol. But I didn't test my luck with DL and bench, so they both dropped some. Also being bed ridden messed with my mobility some, it seems to all be coming back rather quick.

Just mentioning here, I've injured my low back benching. So this log will be on hiatus until I can deadlift again. I am deadlifting with a broomstick several times a day, and doing a lot of mobility work and stretches. I'm going to come back from this injury with some fire.

Deadlifts with a broomstick
