    Grinding the Weaknesses


    Current meet standings:
    385lbs Squat
    415lbs Bench
    445lbs Deadlift

    Current Gym approximations
    420lbs Squat
    430lbs Bench
    460lbs Deadlift

    Weaknesses:
    Quads
    Glutes
    Abs
    Triceps

    Ready to grind?

    Next meet will be in July, I am going to focus the next 10 weeks on ironing out the weaknesses.

    As usual I post videos, pictures, and maybe a few here and there of the girlfriend's training. She will more than likely be competing in July as well.

    Lets keep this constructive...

    Today was a "work the weakness" day, all in all a pretty unfilfilling workout.
    Honestly feel like I can go right back in the gym and workout again. blah.

    Incline press 225lbs 3x10 sets
    Db incline Press 100lbs 3x12
    Flat wide grip (i don't bench wide) worked up to 355lbs x 3 Tried the sling shot. hated it, hate the idea, don't like it, got the 3 reps without it, got none with it. Would wrather a damn spotter or a band. end of story. Plenty of ways to work past your max without having your body contorted into that damn thing.

    Did a few shoulder exercises and 4x25 dips.

    Your numbers look decent to me, and I have no idea what your training history, plan, or longevity is.

    Tell us about yourself, and I would like to see these

    So as far as your deadlifts go, My opinion is that you need more velocity coming off of the floor.
    It looked like you could have pulled that, and you 'mentally' just couldn't get it up.
    But your form looks solid bro, You have a coach so just keep working at it.

    Not pulls. You set the bar on the safeties and do a bottom up squat. It can be done with a standard bar or safety squat bar. Set the pins where you start at or below parallel and squat up from that position.

    Oh gotcha, no we definitely do not do that. We do pin presses with chest, but not legs.

    Legs we are strictly safety bar, regular bar, bands, chains, etc.

    i only watched the deadlift vids, but what i see is your belt shifting about a little bit right before the pull. your back stays good though. you may want to push out more with your abs.

    i also notice a small jerking motion at the bottom. i am guessing its you trying to pull the slack out of the bar.

    you seem to have some strong legs, have you tried sumo?
    you can call me "ozzie" for short.

    Funny you mention Sumo. I am much stronger sumo but somehow I "twerked" my back just a little during my 2nd bench attempt and when I was warming up I felt extremely weak Sumo and my butt was hurting. So I just pulled conventional.
