Solid session man.
Its been forever since I paused some squats...I can already feel the DOMS and I'm not even doing them until Friday.
Don't miss out on the next deal:
The use of pause squats to isometrically strengthen the hips is awf-some. Awful and awesome. Lilly talks about guys "hula hooping" and he also talks about finding your strongest point. This gets rid of the hula hooping and helps you to discover where you're at your strongest. I was wondering how to program the pause squats, so I just messaged the Juggernaut himself on facebook. We'll see if that gets me anywhere.
Just heard from the boss. Be on the lookout for a Juggernaut pause squat article.
Who's excited? I'm excited.
Who's dreading it? We all are.
I can attest to the the awfulness/ awesomeness. Yesterday felt great this morning struggled getting into/out of my truck. My hips are sore as ever. Ill be looking for the article as I am as interested as everyone else is on here. It would nice to apply that technique to some of my clients as well as my own training! Keep up the good work boss!
2/20 Strong Like Bull Cardio
Light Prowler Push (Walk)
Upright Prowler Pull (heel-toe, pull through front foot)
Husefell Carries (100lb plate)
150yds (one trip)
This was cool stuff. Much better conditioning than a hamster wheel. Tough on the whole posterior chain. This actually made my back injury, which was hurting from yesterday, feel good. I should have used shorter rest periods, and my baby hands can't handle my big DBs. Other than that, this was fun. I plan on having conditioning only days once a week, with conditioning also being tacked on to the end of training sessions.
2/21 RE Bench
DB Chest Press (2 incline, 2 flat)
Ab Wheel/DB Side Bends
Felt a little weak and sluggish this session, too many days working out in a row. I still gave it hell. Good amount of volume, but I feel like I'm missing important movements too often. I don't want to become imbalanced. I can set up a "back day" or a "chest day" pretty well, but programming all of the different planes and movements is a new challenge. The next two days will be off as I watch the little brother wrestle, then deadlifts on Sunday.
2/25 DE Deadlift (w/ video)
Deadlift from floor (alternating sumo and conventional)
Really liked the new conventional setup, and I think I got my sumo pull in order. Let me know what you think.
Strict Toe Elevated GM
Short and sweet as I'm on my way to therapy. Good training session. I tightened up my GM form, trying to protect the back and hit my posterior chain. I know I can squat 275 with a heavy forward lean, but my backside needs the work. Weight is at 210, feeling good heading into my meet cycle.
I am still learning sumo but it looks like your arms were in more than parallel. Other than that I don't think I am at a place to advise.
Sorry I can't be more help brotha

A lot of people will say that they love milk, but not many will admit that they are "in love" with milk.
I used to have my hands on the knurling, but the thing about that is that my arms then drag along my thighs and the weight gets away from my body. It's the reason I could never sumo pull heavy. I'm all for shortening the ROM, but that's a tweak I had to make. Really, I'm just pumped nobody called me fat. Yet.
I am too
What do you feel strongest pulling with? Sumo/conventional
LOLZ. Right now I feel stronger with conventional. Only slightly. But, I have yet to pull heavy sumo with proper form, and I've been testing my strength with the conventional deadlift since I was 15. I'll have to get really honest with myself here in the next few weeks and watch the tape closely to see which I'll be using come the 7th.
2/26 DE Bench
Paused Bench (1 inch from chest)
DB Dead Stop Rows
The 2-board presses were weaker than I expected, hence the paused press afterward. The overhead presses were done with a little knee bounce for overload, but no layback. I went with Prilepin's chart on the big supplemental moves.
Just once I'd like to have two good sessions in a row.
2/27 Tactical Squat Day
Today I tested my limits. Not so much the limits of my knee wrap rebound and brute will, but I tested the limits of my mobility and technique. I hope from the videos I attach (bear with me on those), your sets of eyes can revolutionize my squats, and make me a stronger dude.
I am going away for the weekend and I wanted to ensure I get my squatting in beforehand. I'll do assistance work when I can.
Wide Stance Squat
315x5 (or however many) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jq5G0VX6k4A&feature=plcp
Squat (My current technique)
And since it was RE day, I wrapped and belted, turned on some music, hit my head off of the bar (not srs) and hit 365x6 like I was supposed to.
Paused Squat (5s)
And that was my training for the day.
