    Rdls

    Notes: surprised myself on the sumo block pulls today. Have some form things I need to clean up on my lockouts. The 605 was brutal but I never felt like I hitched however I was told I did hitch and also told I didn't hitch but I was shaking so I could get reds for that if I was in a meet. That is what I need to clean up so it's a cleaner and smoother lift. That is the most I have ever pulled raw let alone geared in any sumo variation. Any tips on how to not shake on 100% lifts would be appreciated as it do it sumo and conv.

    Catch some vid next time you go that heavy. I'm curious to see how much shake there is. It's a bit odd that you don't do it on squat. I'm trying to figure out a reason, but I'm drawing a blank outside of the CNS due to the deadlift being the most physically demanding.

    I assume it is a mix of cns overload due to not having the proper motor patterns atm. I pulled raw conv for 12 weeks and by the end it was much less then at the beginning. And that was the second time I have pulled heavy raw sumo in over a year. Soist likely cns. Will grab video 2 weeks from now when.I test my raw sumo pull.

    Notes: Suprised myself to get 2 prs on the incline today. Only planed on doing the 235 for 3-4 reps but felt strong for once so I got all 6 reps. I am not sure why but lately I feel out of it mentally and libido. Also not as full as normal and feel flat. weight is holding around 222. I have stopped using any ais last week as I just dont feel i need them. Have been using nolva for some minor gyno issues at 10mg a day. I suspect this is causing my issues and have since stopped its use.

    Notes: nice and quick day. So i have some gyno issues i have been dealing with after my dr prescribed dhea which just drove up my e2 and not my dhea levels. Since i have stopped it and started low dose form. Should i just let my estrogen level out and hope it clears up or letro it away suck it up in the gym and bedroom for a few weeks followed by aromasin/nolva then low dose ai that point forward?

    It was off an on for about 5 monthes now. Got at its worse 3 monthes ago when it rebounded after using low dose letro for mentdione while getting for a meet. I tapered off onto formeron but that stuff did nothing for me even at 200mg a day since then it has been ok using adex/asin but still there.

    Letro may be the only option unless you can find some good Raloxifene.

    Nice repping! My training partner LOVES his bench daddy. It's a strong little piece of equipment. He wears his all the way up to his armpits and I have to fold it down after he takes the handoff.

    6/11/14-me lower
    Ssb squat to parallel box
    380x1
    420x1
    Add tight ace suit straps down
    470x0 didmt hit the box
    510x0 same
    560x0 same
    600x0 caved to touch and couldnt recover
    Rdls
    225x6
    275x6/6
    Unilateral leg press w/ pause at bottom
    1ppsx10
    2ppsx10
    2pps and 2 25sx10
    Leg raises
    Bwx20/18/18
    Notes: this tight ace suit is the suit i deadlifted in. Needless to say its much to tight to pull and maybe to tight to squat. Taking over 6 to effectly touch a parallel box was a bit much. I was not ready for that cns wise or muscularly. I started letro and already see improvements but also feel like death. Is there anything i can take with the letro to feel better while taking it? Also since my suit is so tight should i cut bf so it fits better or just toss it aside and use my squat gear? Also that 420 is only 20lbs less then my best raw ssb with wraps and no box.

    What's the dose of letro? I've had to toss certain pieces of gear since they've gotten too tight.

    I was cycling upward as that is what i have read to do.
    Day 1-.625mg
    Day 2-1.25mg
    Day 3-1.8ish mg
    Day 4- havent dosed yet. I am also running 100mg formestane as i was using that before the letro and wasnt.gonna remove it until it reached saturation. I am light headed, dry, joint pain, dead libido, no erection, and lethargic. Also have headaches all throughout the day.

    I may just cut 10lbs and see how i do. Or cut it into comp tight briefs lol

    The double AI action can't be great for overall well being. Coming off the form will help, though.

    Does the suit shoot your knees in? I was wearing a 44 Ace brief, but they were too tight and shooting my knees in out of the hole so I moved up to a 46 Ace brief.

    I know it cant but i have used the letro protocol before and it was just as bad. Just curious if adding anything would help?

    No it doesnt it just is near impossible to get all the way up and is brutally hard to get the depth.

    I'm not sure what could be possibly added to alleviate this.

    Have you tried rolling up the legs? It helps me to open up my hips.
