    Haven't done cage presses in a minute. Nice work Justin.
    Thanks Thomas. My OHP has been steadily climbing this time around.

    I was feeling them today. Good burn in the traps with the shrugs at the top too

  5. Long break off... Spent the week with family and friends without a gym. Hope everyone had a great Christmas.

    Back at it today at a barebones rec center near my parents house:

    Legs

    Squats
    45x10
    135x5
    185x5
    225x3
    295x5
    330x3
    365x1
    405x1
    http://instagram.com/p/xNecUhKp0G/
    425x1 (+20lb PR)
    Phone died midset so no video. Not even a grind.
    445x0
    Unrack felt off. Couldn't get it settled. Reracked without an attempt. No sense in getting hurt

    Seated Leg Curls
    5 sets of 10

    Leg Extensions
    5 sets of 10

    Hip Abduction
    4 sets of 15

    Hip Adduction
    4 sets of 15

    First time squatting in sleeves. Ordered a size or two too small haha. Just the EFS normal cloth sleeves. Definitely getting some rebound out of them. Need to order a size up or just deal with it until they stretch out. I couldn't figure out the measurements to use for the sizing and I was getting ridiculous numbers for calves and quads so I went with large thinking they make them for lifters so they might fit.

  7. I spoke too soon.

    I think you posted the wrong video. That one went way too fast to be 405, especially for not attempting 425.

    Maybe that was 225?

    Lol. Very nice man.

    405 felt really easy today haha. All that holiday eating and a week off I guess. 425 was almost as fast. I had really good unracks on 365, 405 and 425. Got the hips under, caught my air in one fluid motion and I felt locked in and tight. Not much extra movement. Need to replicate that on every set.

    Thanks man! I was super pumped about the 425 going so smooth. Wanted a bigger PR but as soon as I walked it out I knew it wasn't there. Gotta train smart to stay healthy

    My wrists have been hurting for the last couple weeks on presses. Rogue wrist wraps are cheap so I might as well try them out. I'll get some heavier duty ones if I'm presses need it later.

    I'm holding off on knee wraps for a bit tho

  13. Brace a little harder for your unracks and do some heavy walkouts and you can move to the head of the class with a 460-something squat PR in a matter of a few weeks, buddy.

    Thanks for the tips herder! I was thinking about adding in some walkouts so hopefully that'll help on maximal lifts

    Unfortunately no... Got sick for a bit, couldn't hold anything down and was getting nauseous when I tried to lift a couple times. Decided to go to the mountains to enjoy the last couple days of break. Will be back in the gym soon and my school schedule is set up so I have clear lifting times every day so I am going to make up for this extended break.

    Might as well. Should get an idea of how I'm feeling with rep work. Could make it a doubles or triples day too depending on how it goes.

    I'm miserable at low bar. Can't get tight enough and my shoulders lack the mobility to be any closer than collars plus I can't get my elbows down. But I gotta try to stick with it for more than a session or two
