  1. Imma have to try out floor press again sometime when I rotate off of DC again.


  2. Interesting discovery on loading the weight. I'll have to toy with bar speed.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    Well the whole int of DE work is to teach one to lower the weight as fast as they can then rebound it up with acceleration, which should allow one to drive thru sticking points. Only on bench to do lower slowly on my heavier sets and lose my acceleration. On squat/pulls Im very good at accelerating and have hit consistent Prs on both for sometime now.

    I am enjoying floor press very much right now, great lift.

  5. 6/22/12-DE Squat/Pull w/ ME Squat/Pull
    DE Mock SSB Box Squats+50lbs of chain
    245+chainx6x2, im going pretty wide on my box squats as of late. Everything feels great.
    DE Sumo Pulls+50lbs of chain
    315+chainx3x1
    Worked up to a heavy single
    405+chainx1
    Added Metal Ace Pro Squatter straps down
    405+chainx1
    455+chainx1
    495+chainx1
    Notes: I hate sumo, I find locking out the weight very awkward at the top and pulling with a hook grip gets very hard has your hands get pulled open. Ill be saving up for conv deadlift suit for now. Ill be focusing from here on out on my conv pull, I may keep sumo as a me variation or not.

    Who me? No I feel great. Its a deload week. I deload my ME work every 3-6 cycles, my DE work every 2-3 cycles, and my RE work every 6-12 weeks. I have 9 ME lifts I cycle thru so to keep it easy I do 3 cycles in weeks of 2 then deload everything, and repeat. This comes to 6 weeks of training then a deload. I noticed after a lil bit I do get run down on WSC. I figure this is bc im raw and dont use juice.

    Got it. I wan't sure it was a planned deload or if you were feeling some fatigue.

    I rarely feel heavy fatigue on WSC if I keep up with my assistence work and gpp.

    100%/New MAx-250x1 Grinder but nailed
    90%-225x3, aim for 3-5 reps at 90% and above unless undeloading. This is to maintain the volume needed to build strength and keep me from failing/missing so much. Also using percents for the same reasons.

  19. Do you own a Prowler, or do they have one where you train?
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    My gym has two not so nice prowlers and my partner owns an elite fts econo prowler which is usually what we use.

  21. 7/6/12-DE Squat/Pull
    GPP: Walking 200 meters with the prowler and the spud harness. 70lbs on the prowler 3 sets.
    DE Box Squat w/ Light Bands (about 100lbs at the top)
    165+bandsx8x2

    315+chainsx6x1
    Suit Case Deadlifts
    135x5,5
    135x5,5
    Heavy Prowler work with the spud harness, not walking but not running.
    180lbs on the prowlerx3x100 meters
    Notes: Great session. Form and speed was great on squats today. I was in the groove for pulls also, was coming up fast and range of motion felt short. Ive been rounding my upper back, starting the pull by raising my upper back first, and dropping my hips some. I shaved about an inch off my range of motion this way. Prowler work sucked, but itll allow us to increase our work capacity and recover better also, win win.

    I'm trying to decide if I should pull the trigger on one or not. They're pricey, but I think I can talk the wife into it...I'll tell her it makes my weenis bigger.

    Weenis? You have more then one? Id go with the econo prowler from elite fts. Easy to put to together and travel with. Comes with indoor and outdoor skies.

  24. 7/7/12-DE Bench
    GPP: Face Pull for 50 meters with Row for 50 meters with 70lbs on the prowler. 3 sets.
    Chins
    Bwx5,5,5,5
    DE Bench w/ Doubled up minis and micros
    115+bandsx9x3 3 diff grips
    JM Press w/ Fat Gripz
    95x5
    135x5
    185x3 couldnt keep form
    155x5
    SOHP
    95x10,10,10,10
    Single Arm Seated Cable Rope Pulls
    70x6,6
    80x6,6
    90x6,6
    4 Way Neck Machine
    35x15 each way for 2 sets
    Notes: Great DE day. I saw a video of dave tate explaining the importance of DE work. He says if your sticking point is off your chest your not pressing fast enough. So I really locked in my form and went. Fastest DE day ive ever had. JM Press sucked, its not fun with or without fat gripz. I find the fat gripz help take pressure off the joints and puts it on the muscles and lowers the weight lifted but makes it harder. This mesocycle has heavy JM Press in percents for 7/5/3 and volume work at 50% for sohp.
