    Yeah. I pull with just my back. They also help my ******* on my deadlift and my grip strength since I can go heavier than a normal deadlift.

    What he said. It allows you to get more weight on your body than you could pull from the floor. This strengthens ligaments and tendons and muscles to the next level. Do rack pulls nice and heavy for a while then go back to dead lifts and see if your lifts didn't go way up. I went from deads of 225 to 315 using this strategy. It works.

    Sorry bro, hoggin your thread.

    Agreed; just with rack pulls remember that this isn't your deadlift #. Some guys like to say they can deadlift 315x8, but if they're doing it from the rack, it doesn't count.

    Update....


    I do not like to drag my personal issues into this thread but unfortunately I find it necessary to give this log and stack the justice it deserves. This past Friday my fiance took my daughter and walked out. I do not wish to dwell on it but here is the effects on this log.

    My diet has been piss poor. Not in quality but in quantity. I have no doubt that I'm missing my cals. I'm now at maybe 75% of my normal intake. Pathetic I know. I have not trained since back day last Thursday.

    Today will be my first day back in the gym. I feel like wrecking myself to the point of crawling out of there. I feel like yanking some weight off the floor till I can't stand up. I prefer physical pain over emotional and I'm going to make sure that happens. Its unfortunate that today is that last day of my stack before starting the M-Stak for my PCT. I will step on the scale tonight to see the verdict. So this log will run for another 21 days.

    I would like to apologize for my inability to keep this on track the way it should have been. This stack is phenominal and my gains were amazing. I'm picking up the pieces to build something better. I will be posting my workout tomorrow. Thanks.

    Hollywood, I am new on here and new to lifting in general but trying to grow myself right now. Anyways.... you got me all fired up to lift houses later on tonight after work. I am sorry to hear about your problems and hope that works out for you.

    I just wanted to let you know that you definitely inspired me to work harder after reading this thread. Thanks for that. I will continue to read, but probably not post too much. I feel like such a noob and have so much to learn, I think it is best for me to read/learn at this point and continue my training.

    I hope you keep up with this log, it is awesome stuff!

    Thanks everyone for your support. It really does help.

    Back at it. Didn't get a chance to deadlift. This might not look like much but I had nothing left...

    Seated Low Pulley Rows
    144 x 12
    180 x 10
    204 x 8
    228 x 4

    DB Rows
    100 x 8
    110 x 8
    110 x 8

    Wide-grip Pull-downs
    168 x 8
    180 x 8
    132 x 17

    -Workout time was 30 minutes.
    -Weight was way down: 182.
    - This marks the last day of Test/Stak. Talk about ending on a low note. 3 weeks of M-Stak, maybe I can turn this around

    Thanks everyone for your support.

    It was great day in the gym. I tried out a few new things and I'm feelin' them today. Here's what went down...

    Wheelz

    Squats

    135 x 10
    185 x 6
    225 x 5
    275 x 2
    225 x 5

    BB Hack Squats
    135 x 10
    155 x 10
    185 x 10

    -I'd never gone over 135 before but that had to change. 185 kicked my ass!

    Seated Calf Raises
    90 x 15
    115 x 12
    115 x 12

    The Freak's Ham Blaster
    BW x 12 for 3 sets

    -This movement is awesome. Its definitely going to become a staple.

    Cable SLDL
    -It took us about ten minutes to get this set up right for these. Even then we still weren't completely happy with the set-up, but we managed.

    168 x 10
    204 (stack) x 8
    204 x 10

    Horiz. LP Calf Raises
    240 x 22 *DS* 180 x 18 *DS* 120 x 33

    -Workout time was 79 minutes
    -Weight was down a little more: 180. I expected it since yesterday was the first day of getting my diet back on track.
