    Ok I got it now. I will try to belly bench it and probably will leave my belt off to help me touch. I can barely get this ace over my shoulders and over my elbows.

    Yea it was technical issues. I flared back to fast on bench and my elbows didn't stay under the bar. Then on the third I didn't flare back at all and barely got anything out of the shirt so it was a struggle. Just didn't stay tight on the pull. Thanks tho man!

    9/11/13-Raw bench
    Floor press medium grip
    275X2 pr
    High rep two board close grip press
    135X20
    185x20
    Pull-ups
    Bwx10,10,10,4
    Mini band pullaparts+side raises+front raises+fat grip hammer curls
    20/10/10/30X10. 3 sets each.
    Notes. Had a good day and prd on floor press. Jacked advanced made me pumped as he'll. However it made me jittery today. Monday it did not. I was told some days it's awesome and others it's off by a training partner. This leads me to say enhanced takes the cake here as it is more consistent and focus driven. I wanted to give jacked a.far shot but I can't.afford to be all jittery come geared squat or bench. So I will stick to enhanced.

    Damn, Lou. Great meet performance! Envious of you being able to train with one of the EFS guys.

    I don't have it too bad off I guess, as I sometimes am able to lift with Justin Tooley who's cool and Chris Mason, but Mason really is never around when I am.

    9/16/13-Deadlift
    De pulls in superior briefs and king sumo deadlifter straps down.
    365X1 2 sets
    365+40lb chainx1 2 sets
    365+80lb chainx1 2 sets
    365+120lb chainx1 2 sets
    Ghrs
    Bwx10
    Bw+monster minix8
    Bw+light bandx6 2 sets
    Fat bar shrugs
    205X15
    205X20, What I wanted
    Reverse hypers+leg raises
    45X15/bwx15 3 sets
    Notes. Tried scivation New psycho today at half a packet or 1.5 scoops. It is extremely strong. Og like craze effects. I will try 1/3 packet next time. I felt ace briefs with the king sumo deadlifter might be to many plys to get into a good bar position off the floor so I tired single briefs and the king over it. I liked it and will try next week for off the floor pulling to compare to my ace suit and see how it works. 3 plys in the back and 2 in the front might jut be perfect. Switching up my assistence work for now too. I need to prioritize. My lower back is getting weak. Reverse hypers are great for prehab/rehab but they don't seem to make my lifts that much better. So I will do heavier ghrs on pull days with reverse hyper prehab/recovery work. Then add goodmornings on squat day since I know those have direct carry over for me.

    I agree with you: Ace briefs are too much underneath a suit. They make it very difficult to get into position. I do enjoy using my Jack briefs underneath the suit, though.

    9/18/13-Raw bench
    3 board press
    365X2 was easy Called it here, started to get shaky
    Incline db press
    70X10
    70X10
    70X6
    Pull-ups
    Bwx10, 8, 8, 8

    15X12/12/12 and 60x15
    15X10/10/10 and 45x15
    Notes. My delts and pecs are weak holding back my raw bench. I am working on them Now. I feel if I don't bring them up eventually it.will affect my geared bench too. Would like to get oh work and dips back into my program also but irk how to fit them in if usually more specific top end work is done on geared bench and I don't think 3-4 pressing lifts per session is beneficial. Could be wrong tho.

    9/20/13-Squat
    Squat in ace briefs
    415X2 for 6 Sets
    505X2 for 2 Sets
    Step ups at parallel
    25X10 each leg
    45X10 each leg
    80X8 each leg pr
    Ssb goodmornings

    Standing cable crunches
    90x10
    120x10
    135X12
    90X10
    Notes. Was suppose to do 600 in my suit straps up today. But I was having technique issues with my set up and keeping my chest up and elbows down. So I did some speedy like work to address this. It got much better and felt easier as I went. Took about 15 min to get thru. Busted the sleeve on my jack blowing the sleeves up. So I am sending it to Ginny to get and inch taken off the bottom and get the sleeves taken out. The 54 Jack sleeves are tighter then the 54 ace sleeves.

    Big pulls. How different is pulling a specific DL suit compared to a squat suit?

    It is not as thick as the ace and the ace has more carry thru at the top I'd say. But the king as a single ply front and double back so it's easier to get to the bar. It has more pop off the floor. The straps pull you in a different way then the ace. More up and back. With the single ply briefs I can't tell a difference other then more pop, the straps help at lockout better. And I don't get caught on the material as much at lockout. I might get a pair of Viking briefs to try under it and see how that goes as they are more of a pop then stopping power and thinner then the ace.

    Notes. My groove on squats has been off lately. Maybe it's the early morning sessions as I never seem to have this problem later in the day. I rolled on to my toes on the first 555 and missed it. Kept my big toe up and fixed my set up and unrack and nailed it the second time could have been a double. Not as easy as at the meet but that is ok. Did the banded ghrs slow really focusing on my glutes as I want to bring those up. Tried the ball rollouts kubuki showed in his log. Much harder then expected will add them in.

    How much pressure does the Buff Bar take off your shoulders? I'm using the SSB strictly as I can't handle the external rotation anymore, but I feel like I'm not really squatting if I don't have a bar on my back. I'm thinking maybe next spring I could afford one if I chose to.

    I think it'd be a solid investment for you. If you're a raw squatter, the buffalo bar will have better carryover as you have to go through all the same cues and setup that you do with a straight bar. It is different with a SSB.
