    Watched some Dan Green vids before pulling today. Best piece of advice that I was able to implement into my workout was to lock out my knees first and THEN lock out my hips. That made a big difference when I pulled 135 today for 3x5, easily. 150 felt really good too. No back issues. However, at 170 the bar got away from me a bit and I didn't keep my belly full of air so although it went up my hip lockout was weak, thus resulting in more pressure on the lower back. Other than that it was a solid session and I know I just have to keep practicing the motor patterns. Tomorrow will either be a rest day or tire flips depending on how my lower back feels.


  2. Good pulls. I'm glad your back has been holding up for them

    I can see where I had gone wrong in the past with locking out my knees and hips simultaneously. Kind of in awe that a minor tweak in form could make the lift so much more efficient. I'm just super pumped and looking forward to the next session. Weee!!

  4. nice pulling session! getting all strong n stuff!

    Aw shucks. Don't make me blush.

    No lifting today. Attempted some tires but my back isn't 100% so better safe than sorry. Plus, I'd like to squat tomorrow. Did some suicides on the field today as well as hill sprints. Today will be lower in carbs as well.

    New PR on front squats and it came up easy...quite frankly that surprised me since my warm ups were not exactly smooth. But it was a good surprise! Not a lot of gas left for box squats and so I failed @ 195 and stopped there. My legs are going to be sore tomorrow for sure. Not due to squats but the jumping lunges. Those suck!

    Hey you

    There are no openings on the plates so I am gripping the sides.

  18. I see ya doing those inverted rows. Love those things, and the reps you are doing shows Kix got some muscles!

    Yeah, I didn't think so. I figured you were either pinching the plate sides or set up a 2x6 board attached to the bar and over handing them.
    So how many guys hands do you crush sayin' good night bub!!!???

    Do you or should I ask, how many lunches have you won, beating men and women at arm wrestling???

    Try it out and let me know how it goes! The Iron grip plates have holes in them that would make gripping easier but mines were holeless.

    I really enjoy band work as well when I can't afford to use heavy BB.

    A lat spread or something.

    Light pressing on OHP today. Wasn't really feeling it at all, but threw a few sets in anyway. Used 35's for DB hang clean and I believe that's a PR from last week. Loving those at the moment. Cardio also went pretty smoothly. Listening to a podcast while doing cardio helps me to sort of forget I'm doing cardio, ha. I think I'll take a rest day tomorrow since I have squats and deads to finish off the week.

  23. back is looking good!

    Think I'll keep front squat reps to around 8 or so. Anymore than that and I start to get a strain on the side of my neck/collarbone area. 1st rep @ 130 back squat I felt a tightness/uncomfortable stretch in my hammie coming up out of the hole. Repositioned my feet a bit and was more conscious of pushing knees out for the 2nd rep. Gotta keep that in mind.
