    235x10


    Decent morning – I could’ve gotten more leg drive out of these, but it’s getting a little better. Grip was the issue of the day – losing it on my overhand (split grip). I almost gave up on the 410, but kept going & it went up – until my hand started slipping… Not sure why I didn’t have any chalk out – it’s sitting right there….lol

  2. Another thing I noticed was your lockouts were soft (some looked not locked out at all). Make sure you get those glutes firing and bring them hips through.

  3. ^^^this. If you get sweaty the bar can stick to your thighs and drag it out of your grip try putting baby powder on them but don't get any on your hands

  4. Yeah totally hear ya on the sh!tty lockouts.... I barely kept a couple of those from dropping
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  5. Its really hard to lock out weights when they are slipping from your hands, at least for me. should of chalked up for sure. going for 410 was a stretch lol, i applaud the effort though man.

  6. The whole time my head is going back & forth between not dropping the bar & not hitching to try and get better grip... Had I just chalked up early - I don't think any of those would've been an issue - even that 410

  7. You'll hit it next time man

  8. Take a look at 14 seconds paused and 11 seconds paused. At 14 seconds you had pretty good hip position. Maybe some room to go up, but your ass was down and chest was up. At 11 when the lift actually started your hips were all the way up and the bar was about an inch off the ground.

    My point is I don't think you are getting much quads into the movement, and you still almost almost finished the lift; it's seems to be technique and not strength at that weight.

    Since no one can focus on thirty things at once on a lift I would just focus on the Chest up/back once you get into position. Strength is there.

    Hope that helps brother man

    Edit: and chalk up, I just say the number and watched the video when and started responding haha my bad man! Slipping out of your hands could have been bringing you forward haha

    So my bench vids from last week never uploaded – errored out for some reason


    OHP 3’s (ss w/ wide grip pull-ups – BWx5)
    115x5
    130x5
    145x5

    Incline Bench (ss w/ wide grip pull-ups – BWx5)
    135x10
    155x10
    175x7 (wrist wraps)
    165x3 (no rest, drop set)

    DB OHP (fatgripz)
    35x20
    35x20
    Wide Pull-Down
    80x20
    80x20


    Yeah – so it’s a 3’s week & I did 5s. Oh well – I guess getting 5 on the last set is even better, considering I used up some gas on the previous extra reps….lol.

    I’m still taking Follidrex. Seem to be having a decent little lean bulk going. The mirror is showing some slight leaning up around the midsection (and taken in my belt 1 notch) while shirts & pant legs are getting more snug. Taking fluctuations into account, I’m holding onto about 2lbs since starting. Recently (1 week ago) added AB OG & Erase – probably a little overkill, but I feel like I’ve got a handle on what to expect out of Folli, so let’s see how they work together. The last time I ran AB & Erase, my libido tanked – so far no change from the increase I last noticed since starting Follidrex.

    Thanks man - while the slippage didn't help form, historically I've had issues with quad involvement. When it all comes together - chest up has been a good cue for me.

    Lately, I feel like the snatch grip deads have been helping me get my legs in the lift a bit more - well, feeling it in that lift, not sure of the carryover to conventional for me yet.

    That's because the snatch grips force you into a deficit, in order to get into the deficit you you have to get the ass down, when the ass is down you can engage the quads. Basically it makes sense to me haha

    Ah - well then looks like a good lift to keep in the rotation

    Awesome for upper back and just try and get a feel for leg drive and then try to bring some to the conventional...just keep in mind you won't be as low on conventional.

    Had those in rotation today as well - working the leg drive groove


    8/27/14 - Squat 3s

    Squat (belt) (ss w/ SLDL 115x10)
    250x3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UAXI...zwN6UUVlyeJsxw
    285x3 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8qb...yeJsxw&index=3
    320x2 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0N_Z...zwN6UUVlyeJsxw
    325x1 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d8xU...yeJsxw&index=1

    Olympic Squat (beltless) (ss w/ SLDL 115x10)
    145x10
    165x10
    185x10

    Wide Grip DL (ss w/ Ab Roll-out BWx12)
    235x10
    235x10


    First the good: learning to sit back on descent & keeping hips lower/chest higher. 250 popped right up. 285 was a bit slower but still moved solidly, a little more confidence on the way down wouldn’t hurt. Now the bad: 320 I was kinda psyched out about & it showed. Went into instinct & sat ‘down’ more vs. back – hence hips coming out first & loading more onto my back. 2nd rep – same deal, except this time my stomach contents dropped a chamber… (basically right around the time you see the bar sway side-to-side). The definition of a crap rep (although crisis was narrowly averted). Had I went for a third, the video wouldn’t be safe for viewing…lol 325 – my head was in the game a bit better (& I was a bit..relieved), but you can see in the video at the start I’m wobbling between knees & hips… instinct vs. logic. Hips rose a bit to start, but still progress in a positive direction. This week is another weird one, forcing a 4-day run of training. Probably could’ve used a few more calories last night to fuel today’s session, but overall not bad – progress forward: learn & move on

  15. I continue to see improvements here. Maybe someone can chime in but on the 320 just didn't seem like your stance was as wide and or didn't push your knees out as much 325 wasn't a horrible I can see u have the strength cause the speed was there just hips came up like u said. Nice work thou I'm glad u are taking people's advice on here and running with it

  16. Thanks man - that's what I'm here for: there's a ton of good knowledge & helpful folks

    I have been having issues with finding width off & on lately. I felt like I might've been a touch too wide on 285, leading to being a bit too narrow on 320. Yeah - 325 the width felt better. Just cleaning up my walkout is a big one for this - and keeping a high confidence level unracking the bar. I get all shuffled & lose intensity if I start questioning myself

  17. I agree with DMax in your ME squats getting much better. You have one problem that I am fixing on myself. Your set up. You are leaned over at the start. You almost fix it before the decent, to your credit.

    Something I am working on that may help you too is being patent with getting into position for one. Stand straight up out of the rack fully braced, and then walk out and rebrace. Another thing is, only slightly push the hips back to start and then move down, not back. The reason is if you have tighter hamstrings that can be a limiting factor on depth. Now if you have loose hamstrings you can go back further. So what I do now if hip hinge ever so slight and then down down down not back back back.

    I think it might help as your form breaks are similar to mine now that your are getting your hips lower.

    Much much improvement though, seriously awesome.

    Bench 3s

    Bench (ss w/ BB row 115x10)
    180x5
    210x3
    235x3
    245x3 (slingshot)

    CGBP
    145x10
    165x10
    185x10
    BB Row
    135x10
    145x10
    155x10

    (read it somewhere recently, though trying to remember the proper name, but basically standing, facing cable, extended arm, press/pull down thru lats)
    30x10
    40x10
    40x10

    Push-Ups BWx50

    Decent day benching – wanted more out of my top set, but the extra slingshot triple will have to do. Upper forearms were really sore this morning & everything was getting sore by the end. Getting decent leg drive lately without any buttlift as long as I get tight enough before unrack. Just gotta make sure my back & scaps are set good & tight. That lower bicep pain that comes to me with fatigue started to rear its head by the end of the session. So I opted to freshen things up with a new exercise I had recently read about (I’ll track that link back down & update), plus some ol’ fashion push-ups. I hadn’t done those in forever & it really felt great busting them out like that (well before I got into lifting, I did a lot of push-ups & 50 was always my magic number). No vids – was way into a new podcast & was just being lazy – Tim Ferris – lots of stuff about creative process, productivity, motivation, etc, if you’re into that sorta thing

  20. Catching up to me on bench buddy...

    That exercise would be a straight arm cable pulldown, heard them called front pulldowns too. Great for lats and scapular retraction/depression.

    Hahaha - thanks! workin on it - maybe one day.......


    Ah - thanks! I might keep those in rotation for a minute, as lately I've just been getting bored as [email protected] with Kroc Rows... just need something different
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  22. good work man. yeah those are a straight arm pulldowns are a good finisher for the lats, its on of the only ways to really isolate them without hitting the biceps too. i sometimes will do em with a band for high reps givesa little bit of a different feel.

    335x5
    375x3

    Front Squat – 5ct pause (ss w/ HLR BWx10)
    135x3
    135x3
    135x2

    Pulling with a head cold…. Camping & canoeing on the river this weekend. Had a great weekend, except for the cold I came down with. Felt like crap today. My form felt pretty decent, however I had no power behind it, except the sensation of puking. I was getting under the bar & engaging the legs pretty well – I could totally feel the lack of power I was getting out of them…lol 420 I felt good but weak (if that makes sense). My back was holding up to the weight – keeping a good angle/not hunching over, however my gas tank limited to getting up to my shin & no more. Even tried a second time, same thing just slightly lower than previous set. Debated a drop set, but instead went thru a few sets of front squats & was pooped. Sorry no vids – was doing good just to get thru what I did, avoided the distraction. Might take a half-day from work & rest up. Hopefully tomorrow I can get back to it.

  24. Get some rest man and come back another day and crush it

  25. i had that puking feeling on pulls last week man, its no good. couldn't pull if my life depended on it lol.
