    My elbows blow up if I go all the way to touch my chest on bench. It takes a cascade of miracles for me to truly have a good Max effort bench day.

  3. Yesterday I hit a triple max on OHP

    45x5
    95x5
    115x5
    135x5
    155x5
    165x5
    175x3 (pr well because I now go till the bar touches my shoulder blades it has gotten considerably harder )

    Pretty good last day.
    Now I will be in Tokyo (actually ready am) and meeting up with the family. Looks to be a good trip. Forgot half my supps at home, couldn't eat anywhere for lunch because of my allergies and looks like I am gonna be goin to some party with the wife's friends at a Mexican place... Hmm bean allergy plus wheat allergy plus dairy allergy and you probably got one of the hardest mouths to feed when eating out.

    Dealing with that many allergies would be rough. Congrats on the PR though, those always make life better. lol

    Any rice I eat is never healthy("clean"), so I try to stay away from it. You get the mail? Hopefully I didn't send it to some random person. lol

    I eat white rice only... My diet is a bit more liberal than ppl eat here. (high fat mod protein mod carbs) brown rice flares up my joints and makes me see red on the throne.

    Got it. But I'm on my iPad and don't really wanna view it till I get to my hotel room. Currently walking around lol.

    Interesting read, especially since I do BTN presses with a snatch grip occasionally.

    Yea I was watching a California strength vid on it. I assume it's okay because we aren't really stressing the shoulder cap in a vulnerable position. Weight lifting and bodybuilding are like two different worlds of weights.
    Can't wait to hit the gym in two weeks. Gonna get some one to help me with the Olympic lifts there.

    Yeah I want to get with a coach eventually, just for a session. See what they think of my lifts and take their criticism.

    Would be good just to have a bunch of things to work on. I need the basics.
    For some reason your vid keeps crashing while downloading on my iphone. Will try with my iPad later tonight.


    Food wise it has been rough. Ate one meal yesterday of like 5oz of chicken and like 120g carbs worth of rice. Got about 50g bcaas though so I hope to be getting enough to prevent too much catabolism.

    Today should be better though. I need like 3000 cals just to keep from shrinking. And I rather not lose weight than lose muscle ATM.

    Its just one squat, not a big deal. Hopefully your Ipad works, the video might need Java to play and I don't think iPhones allow Java.

    Well you're pushing through the stress point with your legs. There really is no moving the weight with the arms. Power transfer and body positioning is all that matters.

    Hopefully my front squats will be up to 400 by year end. I'm pretty much gonna be doing a front squat program by Greg Everette for the next couple months.

    I've tripled 390 before but something about putting 400# on and frontsquatting just makes me rack it without trying.

  29. So today I'll be hitting Disney sea. First time so I'm pretty stoked!!!
    My cycle is coming together as well so I will be primed and ready to start the day I get back. I think this vacation will be a great break for my body. I feel I will be hittin the weights stronger and better than ever!

  30. Sounds pretty cool and that is some insane front squatting. I just have the worst time with Front Squats. I need to get with someone who really knows how to do them. I need more wrist flexibility or something. When I try to do the arms crossed grip it rolls up into my collar bones. Just gets very frustrating so I go to Hack Squats.

    It's more elbow and the whole outer arm being tight. When I get back home in a week and a bit I'll post a stretch I do daily that really opened up my arm to be able to just get in the racking position.

    Found a gym, to bad I leave today from this hotel to stay at cheaper hotels... (at the Disney official resort hotel now). Might hit a workout in a couple minutes... Pull ups and dips.... Again lol. The place only goes to 30kgs (66lbs) DBS and has no barbell. Guess I could do some sprints.... Nah...

    Thats the worst part about vacation, not being able to get good workouts in.

    Oh yeah, I'm really liking the heavy weighted crushes for 8-15 reps. I have had DOMS since Monday in my lower abs. Focking weird actually being sore there.

    Yea. But it gives my body a short break that I never take lol.
    Hmm. Crunches... Never do those. Cable crunches are pretty rough lol.

    No sure what they're called but it is like a seat without a back that locks your feet in. You go further back than usual crunches and it shreds your V imo.

    Hehe. I just hate working abs. Unless it's helping me do walking handstands it's not worth it lol.
    Low back though I do sldl, and good mornings. I'm trying to be a tank though.
