  3. went out to a super fancy restaurant for dinner. I had grilled salmon & shrimp, fingerling potatoes in some sort of lightly mustard-ish cream sauce. After dinner, my wife suggested a couple drinks – who am I to turn that down?... Didn’t want to get too crazy mixing G8 & alcohol, being super sleepy by the end of the evening anyway, so I skipped the G8 last night. Fighting a little bit of sinus crud lately – always present in the river valley. Nothing too extreme, just can’t breathe out of my nose half the time…

    My recovery during training & extra practice seems to be keeping pace for the most part. My grip has taken a hit though. DL fails usually occur on grip about ¾ up the pull – I’ve noticed it’s always the palm facing me hand, regardless if I switch hands – the backwards hand stays solid. I might break out the straps through this coming deload & maybe in assistance work, if needed, just to give my hands an extra break. I will not use them during work sets though – to me I can’t really count them, since it’s not a true test of the whole chain

    I need to get on Youtube & start posting some vids. That’s my goal for next week -

    DL – 275x5, 310x3, 350x3 (+2) (pulled one more after reseting & putting gloves but not counting it)

    Superset 5 sets of 10
    Hanging Leg Raises – 5x15
    DL – 185 (50%) – 5x10

  4. bring on the vids!

  5. I'm with Snagz, do it!

  6. Kicked back just over ½ scoop of G8 last night – slept like a baby once again. I don’t wake up, or seem to even move once I’m out, with this stuff. Very restful sleep. The only downside I can say so far is I move a little slower right out of bed in the morning. Sorta ‘stoned’ like feeling – I’m awake, but I’m not going anywhere too quickly. It clears up after I kill my preworkout though.

    Bench today – between a bit of a slow start & trying to capture video for the first time ever, it took a bit longer, but had a good workout. Upped the reps a little on my ab work as well. I’m always fighting butt lift once the weight gets up higher. The last set, I had a bit of a weird hitch about halfway on the 3rd rep, partially me, partially my wife popping into the room to say bye

    Bench – 185x5, 210x3, 235x4 (+3)

    First time posting vids ever – rip em up! I'm sure I could use plenty of technique work
    (My phone zooms in when it goes to video, so I was having trouble getting the angle I wanted, as the room isn't all that big - can't really see my chest once the bar comes down - I'll work on that)

  9. Work now?
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  10. Yeah works now. Question though. Are you lifting for power or lifting for bb propose? Butt comes off the pad pretty high. Lower back is probably sore today.

    Yeah power. butt comes up bad for sure...

    Back feels alright actually. I do yoga a couple times a week-that helps a lot

  12. I'm not a power lifter by any means let me get that out of the way first lol. I think though that when you set your arch, your feet are not far enough back for one, and you reset your body again when you grip. That might be from the rack set up, but to me it looks like you are trying to pull your shoulder blades together once you are in position and that is again causing your feet to slide forward more hence losing more arch causing your butt to rise even more. Like I said I'm no power lifter but that's what I saw. Someone with a bit more experience might could critique better then me.

  13. Cool - yeah, shoulder blades end up being set last, my rack has super wide pins, so I roll the bar to the lip of the pins, then set shoulders go.

    Good call - I've watched the "so you think you can..." series- need to check em out again

  18. Hehehe... I had no idea my grunting/cursing was that loud on the video ...LOL. my wife was cracking up, she asked to see the clips

  19. Getting ready for squats - going over some elitefts vids, mixing my pwo. Lets try this video thing again ...

    Go get em tiger!

    260x3

    Any tips, suggestions, etc, greatly appreciated. Hopefully this angle shows necessary info. I feel like my hips come up before everything else gets going. Felt little out of sync. No excuse, but having the video going changes my mental state a bit. I'll get used to that, as i can obviously learn a thing or 20 by showing you folks and having it dissected

    I need to find a way to not upload the sound though...

  22. 1/2 scoop G8 last night - Wow! I noticed that since I didn't get woken up by my alarm & just slept as needed, I was refreshed & ready to go this morning - night and day difference compared to being woken up mid sleep cycle... Busy day today (running a booth at World on the Square in Corydon for my wife's school), but planning on giving 1 full scoop a shot tonight.

  23. Jealous of the home gym!

    Good squats man. Id focus on just opening your knees up some more and that'll help. Strong erectors will keep ya from "good morning'ing" the weight up.

    Ive been sleeping like a rock with G8. It's definetly awesome stuff

    Once I get a cage, I'll be set...

    I will work on that more. Makes sense. In the "so you think " vids, he kept saying something about the movement being out to in vs up and down. I think I'm starting to get what you both are referring to. Thanks a lot!

  25. Getting woken up mid sleep cycle is bad stuff. G8 should keep you in the REM where the best recovery is going on with no problems.
