    Exercise Phys. It's weird how much your overall interests change in just a few years. I originally wanted to get my PhD under Cordain at Colorado State to further the Paleo movement, but that was before I found powerlifting. Now, I'm looking at two main schools for my PhD: Texas and Kentucky as they have more of a S&C interest.

    2/10
    Squat

    Worked up to 615x1

    Ab Wheel
    BWx10x3

    This session was far from my best day. I was never able to loosen up my back and I had to call it at earlier than I had hoped. Most of the crew ended up having a ****ty day and one of the guys had to dump a weight, which hasn't happened to us in several months. This whole next week is going to be an underload with only briefs on lower and raw for upper.

    I always see the students in the grad program for ex/sci going everywhere and basically living in their gym clothes. Makes me jealous sometimes!

    I've been thinking about going to Texas as well. The Hazelwood Act allows me to go to school in the state so I'm looking at schools in Texas.

    I have a little time before I can go.

    Haven't looked much beyond UT as far as Texas schools, I spent a little time talking to Jason about it but haven't decided on a particular school.

    I am looking for a degree in exercise physiology with a more performance or S+C focus, my goal is to work with wither HS or hopefully college athletes as a coach/trainer.

    UT would be the top option. Texas State is getting there, but still needs some faculty improvements.

    I have a buddy who's there.

    My GPA from HS was a 4.5 so depending on what I get with my SAT it shouldn't be an issue. Also with the hazelwood act and prior military service it becomes a little easier.

    With college you just have to do the work and put in the effort for your weekly assignments. I'm sad it took me so long to get back.

    Undergrad is irrelevant since most of the load is basics and minor. By the time you'd graduate, the landscape could be very different.

    I've been somewhat neglecting lat work and decided to throw in a random two session day with one specifically lat work. This week is my raw week for my CNS and muscular recovery has seldom been an issue for me. Made sure to really up the calories at dinner (2 avocado cheeseburgers with homemade hashbrowns) and am feeling sore today from the huge increase in volume, but that is to be expected.

    I have irritated something in my hips to the point where it's causing some major discomfort. This week is raw and underload work, so I hope that alleviates the discomfort and that I can find the trigger point to relive the pressure.

    Yes. I put on way too much yesterday and had a bright red patch for several hours yesterday. It really loosened up my back, though.

    A buddy just recently mentioned this to me as well. I may give it a shot on pulls and squats days.

    2/17

    Cambered Low Box Squats
    335x3x5

    Called it after the squats. Tried to throw in some basic BW assistance work, but the spine did not feel fine.

    I've been doing extra mobility work on the area and didn't realize how immobile I am compared to my flexibility. I finally bought another baseball to use on my glutes and there's some funky adhesions in there that are very tender, especially in the right glute.

    Rodja,I have a question for you. What weight is typically the point where knee wraps come into play? My son is getting up into some good squat numbers and I am unsure on if/when to go here.

    This is a really difficult call to make. What style of squat does he generally use? If it's wide stance, then I'd say somewhere in the 80-85% range. If it's Oly style, then probably when he gets closer to 90%.

    It's not so much a weight thing, IMO. One of the guys that I train with (who is aiming for 800 in May) doesn't wrap his knees until the last microcycle in his training when he adds in the straps.

    He is right in the middle of wide/Oly and says that his knees don't feel anything when he squats. We are going to test a max in March and I guess we will get an indication then. Thx Rodja.

    It's not so much feeling anything in his knees; it's more of an issue if the knees cave in instead of pushing out and/or staying in track with the femur.

    We've been working very hard on the outward push and he has never had any problem with the knees caving so I guess we will see when the weights get maxed.

    If he has a solid dip/bounce at the bottom, then he'll get a lot of knee wraps. They really help to spring you out of the hole.

    A couple of major updates from the weekend. First, I've adjusted my training schedule to have one more wave of 2:1 followed by a wave of 3:1 prior to meet week and then the final week being active rest and mobility work. Next is a gear change. I pulled the trigger on a new pair of briefs: Metal Jack size 44. It'll be a tight fit under my sit, but I'll be able to get it with enough weight.

    On paper, this session looks really good, but I wasn't able to really dig in once again and I'm one session away from pulling in only my suit. The main thing that the extra gear is preventing me from doing is to really push out on the side of my foot and generating maximum force to the bar. I'm not frustrated as my hips have loosened up and I was able to put in a solid sumo session, but it's a nuisance that I'm struggling so much with my gear.
