    That's a really good idea. If I keep short locking, I'm gonna be really mad when I can't lock out a new PR on the platform. That's probably why the groove gets out of whack, too. Today's focus was lower body tightness.

  2. Big day today. As I'm not really sure what I'm capable of with my healed back and exploding strength, I'm going to determine my opener on deadlifts today. To simulate going through a meet, I'm going to push the prowler BEFORE I start pulling, and as long as the reps are easy, I'm going to keep moving up. Ideally, I'd like to open at 475-500. My first 500 moved really easy and accelerated off of the floor. I think I could really pull big at the meet.

  3. Your pulls and squats are like night and day from a month or two ago. Solid work man!

    Thanks, man. I've been getting stronger this whole time, my back wouldn't let me express it. I attribute that to training my legs in better performance patterns as opposed to bodybuilding patterns. I wish I had trained this way when I wrestled. I would've been all-state.

    Edit: I bet my 40yd dash and vertical are better now, too. Not good, but better.

  5. 3/27 Deadlift Opener

    Triples up to 425 (PR) best set of night
    425x3 PR - YouTube

    475x1 (beltless PR, but a rough rep)
    475x1 beltless - YouTube

    475x2 PR, beltless and 2-rep any-damn-method
    475x2 beltless PR (PR in general) - YouTube

    Lotta **** went down today in the errands department, so I had to nix the Prowler and go with reps to determine where I'd open. Didn't have my gym bag on me so today I went beltless. Grip was about to go on rep #2, I probably should've reset my hands, but I didn't want to wait around at the time. Lesson learned. Will open at 475. I've been using my air and my abs to my advantage of late, so I really get a lot out of my belt.

    Wasn't as strong today as I was on DE day, but of all the days to score low, the day you pick your opener is probably the best.

  6. 3/29 Squats

    Triples to 425x3 PR
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=plcp&v=vMy7gfn12CI
    Paused
    315x2 5s
    315x2 7s

    Oly
    225x26
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=plcp&v=whjcfQ-hhSI

    Depth was much better with the heavy squats and paused squats. Was going to wrap hard and Oly 315, but I couldn't hit depth. Good session here today.

  8. Hahaha. Not really all that fun. 135x50 was all about wind. Tonight was mostly wind, but the legs were also really bombed. I think 275x20 would be the ultimate challenge. I'll try that after the meet.

  10. Big day today. My buddy's back in town after winning the Federal Hockey League championship. Dude's a legit 455/385/515 at 6'2" and 198. His house has a slight bit more equipment than my shed. We're about to kill it in T-10 minutes. Going for a floor press PR and use it to indicate where I'm at for next Sunday.

  12. Biceps tendon killing me today. Not enough to affect my floor pressing or benching, but it could affect a big bench next week. Hit it up with the lax ball for a half hour after the workout. It will be most of my work next week.

  13. Went to a going away party last night, had lots of food and a few drinks. Slammed water so as to avoid headaches, and my body did not relinquish one drop of it. Weight is currently 240, and I now know how to properly get my bloat on for meet day.

  14. Best bloat ever, 2 cans of Campbell's chicken noodle soup.

  15. That's a good call! I was thinking Chinese buffet after weigh-ins. Heavy on the soy, massive amounts of carbs, and a little creatine mono for good measure.

    Caveat: drink ~64 of diluted Gatorade before you do this if you cut 10+% of your BW.

    To start the replenishing process. If you cram down too much, then you'll often have GI distress and recovery will suffer.

    I believe this echoes what Rodja previously stated. It'd be better to eat in smaller increments.

  21. That's true. I have a wonderfully gifted gut, though. Probably from eating sticks and pencils when I was a child. I'll do it right. I've also heard warnings against overdoing the bloat. That will be important, because I'll be pretty depleted if I actually shoot for 220.

    I was the same way, but a bad cut is something that you won't recover from by the time you take your first attempt. My last cut from my last fight left me in a fog partially because I mistimed everything and then tried to cram in too much.

  23. 4/2 Squats

    225x8x2

    Pauses
    225x5x2

    Toe Elevated GMs
    135x6x2

    Lots of PVC rolling, mobility squatting, the toe elevated GMs were good for a stretch, too. Felt tight at the beginning. I can only imagine how tight I'd be if I took the week off.

  24. Also to note, weight was 233 this morning. From here on out, it's fish and veggies. Dropping carbs should help a lot. Might have to do some exercising to deplete glycogen. Not scared of my weight yet.

  25. Weigh ins have just been moved up from 6pm on Saturday to 3pm. I will gladly take three extra hours to recover from. I might call the wrestling coach for the local high school and see if I can get the room opened up. Nothing will drop weigh faster than grappling. Nothing.

  26. Just curious, do you water up the days leading up to a weigh-in?

  27. Do drastic weight changes affect strength at the meet though?

    Yeah, I'm pounding as much water as my stomach can hold until tomorrow evening, probably about 2 gallons a day then it'll be just enough water to get my supps down. Food will be stopped at noon tomorrow.

    They can. The weigh in is 19 hours before the meet starts, though. That's plenty of time to replenish. I'm used to an hour's worth of replenishment. By the time I go to bed Saturday night, I'll be 235. So I don't expect to be weak Sunday.

  30. Today's goal is to get a good sweat. Trying to get some electrolytes out. First night with the MHP Xpel really got rid of a lot of bloat and subq water, but I'm only down to 229. Once I quit drinking, I should be within a couple pounds.
