    Yeah, if I put some momentum into them, I can move some serious weight. I've just been trying to use a more strict form, with my torso as close to parallel with the floor as I can get, and a good pause and squeeze at the top of the rep. For this purpose, I've been finding db rows and one-arm tbars are better. But I'ma hit some BB rows tomorrow just for the hell of it.

    Anyways, here's a workout update:

    XFA Notes: I'm taking 6caps a day right now. I'll bump it back up to 8 on lifting days when I resume two-a-days. For now, 6 is doing the trick. No major strength increases to report this workout, but I still did manage a PR in reps on OHP.

    Superset: OHP/ Band Facepulls
    135x5/ x20
    155x5/ x20
    185x5/ x20 - Pretty sure this is a PR for 5 reps
    205x3 +1push press/ x20
    DC Set: 175x8 +3 +3push presses/ x20

    Superset: Floor Press/ HS Shrugs
    225x5/ 3plates per side x12
    275x5/ 4 x10
    315x2/ 5 x8
    DC Set: 225x13 +5 +3/ 6 x6

    I should have worked up to 315 slower, my form felt a little off and another light set or two could've helped me find my groove. Felt almost like a JM Press, which is NOT normal.

    Superset: HS Press/ Hammer Curls w/1sec pause and squeeze at the top
    70per side x10/ 50x8
    80 x10/ 55x8
    DC Set: 90 x10 +5 +1/ 60x8

    I then ran the rack with hammer curls, starting with 65x8, then doing 5reps at 10lb intervals down to 30x5.

    Incline Cable Flies Dropset Finisher:
    60x10 +50x8 +40x5 +30x5

    Reverse Fat Bar Preacher 21's:
    60 for 3sets.

    Finished with some incline db curls and I was fried.

    Thanks for the input gents! The Inzer Forever 10mm Lever looks really tempting. I'm also looking at some APT and EFS stuff too. I'll keep y'all posted.

    The Inzer may seem pricey, but that thing should last you the rest of your life.

    That is the way I looked at it. It might be $70ish bucks but I shouldnt need another belt for the rest of my life. The only way that I would is if I dropped about 50 pounds lol.

    I've had mine for 14 years now.
    It's good for another 200 or so.

    Yeah, that's the real issue - price. But every other vendor is in about the same price range, and from I'm reading in the forums, other belts arrive quite stiff and have to be broken in much more than the Inzers.

    I'll discuss finances with the wife and hopefully place an order this evening, since my lower back definitely could've used some assistance today after def deads, GMs and BB rows.

    I should get a pink belt, right?

    Pink would be lovely, no doubt.
    But to be in with the incrowd (Volcom, Tomahawk and myself), you have to get a blue one.

    Nay, hot pink and with white fluffs.

    The INZERS are quality and I haven't had mine nearly as long as TG, but I don't see this belt deteriorating short of a Nuclear Winter and even then....

    the inzer forever lever is great for PLers, I like Schiecks leather contoured for BBers and movements like bent rows where I find PL belts to be too restricting.

    I saw one of your deadlift videos and you were wearing a blue belt. Must have belonged to someone else. Sorry.......

    Now get you a blue one.

    Probably won't happen......but it could. I've heard of guys' belts breaking when they're squatting.

    A big black dude named O.D. Wilson back in the late 80's or early 90's was squatting 1,000 for 2 reps and his Inzer broke coming up on the second rep!!

    Crap! Busted!

    Anywhoo...

    XFA Notes: 6/day is good stuff, feeling strong and full. Steady progress all around, don't know what else to really comment on.

    On Friday I hit Def Deads from a 4" platform. Worked up to 455 for a triple. Weight felt light and form felt solid. Grip could have been better though - had to reset it between the 2nd and 3rd rep.

    Then did GMs off Pins, working up to 365x10. For my first few sets, the ROM I had felt fine, but as my hamstrings warmed up, I realized I could've lowered the pins for a longer stretch. Next week.

    Moved on to 45-degree BB rows from pins, working up to 275x10. Loaded 315 on the bar, rowed it twice, but my lower back was SHOT to HELL after Def Deads and GMs, so I called it. 315 felt very manageable on my lats and arms though, so I'll have to try them again on a day where my erectors aren't fried already.

    Then yesterday I just went in and had a general bodybuilding chest/arms day. Really focused on using my pecs and biceps to move the weight and used primarily machine and isolation movements. Nothing too impressive here, so I won't bore you with the details.

    Also, I ordered my belt - an XL Inzer Lever, per everyone's recommendation in royal blue.

    Hmm well Idk. I went by what size jeans I wear. 38s fall off my ass. Well I just checked my belt. I think it really depends on how you wear your belt. When I wear mine I suck in as much as possible and tighten that bit down then puff my gut out.

    I just know my friend Matt cant really use my belt because it is too big for him. He is about 6'1" and 220ish. Granted he has a small waist but got to figure proportionally yall are somewhat similar and he is too skinny for the large. See if you can call them and talk to them. I know mine took about 2 weeks to show up and I got a generic belt.

    thats just wide hips, which make you better at powerlifting, strength sports, power, etc. Think of Jay Cutler, dude has a wide ass waist, but there isnt an ounce of fat on it.

    I HIGHLY suggest you to call and see if you can switch to a Large instead. Letting it all hang out my naval is out more. Pulling my insides in tight gets me to a 37" which is a 5 inch difference. I have plenty of rings to get bigger, but only like 4 to get smaller. You dont need a XL.

    Ok, it's taken care of. They'll have to specially make a L in royal blue though, so it's gonna take a while to get here.

    Good stuff in here Resolve, seems like the product is good to go. Good to see the elbows are still holding up too! Nice on that belt! I have no waist at all and the thickness of the Inzer belts unfortunately don't play well with my lower ribs. I have to have a contoured one as well.

    ive always found that both really cool and a big pain that these types of high end belts are made individually rather than produced in large enough quantities to ensure same day or next day shipping. At least you know your getting the best quality!

    Had a crappy couple of workouts over the past few days. I won't bore you with the details, but my strength was just not on par.

    Missed 505 on 4" Def Deads twice, and the next day barely got out a double with 295 on floor press.

    It's my research. I have a very important exam coming up in a few weeks and preparing for it is taking all my time and generating an unprecedented amount of stress. I've begun having trouble sleeping due to it as well.

    I'll get through this, it's just another hoop I have to jump through, but until it's done, my athletic performance is probably going to suffer a bit.

    Key thought here is that you will jump thru it. The difficult is the most satisfying when accomplished Nick. These are times that you will look back on with alot of pride.
