  1. 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.

  5. 2/20

    Sumo
    Worked up to 540x5
    570x1

    Snatch-Grip Deads
    335x5x4

    DB Side Bends
    70x10x4

    BW Hypers
    50 reps

    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.

  6. That's still awesome weight to be pulling regardless of the equipment issue. Do you have any ideas what your lifts will be for the meet? Planned openers weights?

  7. Planned openers right now are 615/415/545. Squat is going to be very conservative to get my confidence rolling along and the others are weights that I can confidently do on nearly any given day. Goal for the meet is 715/455/615.

  12. 2/23

    Bench

    Worked up to 495x2 (3-board)
    455x1 (2-board)
    455x1 (1-board)
    425 touch; lost about halfway up

    Pullups
    BWx7x4

    WY/Side Laterals
    20x6/35x15
    20x6/35x15

    Pullapart Series


    First time that I have attempted to touch in several months and, although I didn't get it, looking at the video, I did really well on the descent, but lost my legs and got stuck about halfway up. The 455 to a 1-board was slightly muscled up and I can tell from both videos that I am too focused on pushing the weight away instead of driving myself into the bench.

  13. Sick bench bro! Looked for the vid!

  15. Several things that I notice here:
    1. I didn't pull the weigh to the board on the last 1" and had to front raise it off.
    2. My heels came up and I did not get leg drive.
    3. I took too long to flare my elbows.
    4. I did keep my lats tight.

  16. Yeah,you could see the weight just sort of fall to the board that last inch or 2. Have you tried not having your feet tucked so far back under you? The leverage angle seems very extreme to really get much push out of it.

    I have a very mobile thoracic and I have to get my feet in that position to get the best arch that I can to shorten my ROM. I actually have moved my feet and place the weight on the balls of my feet.

  19. 2/24

    Squat

    Worked up to 616x1 (opener; reverse-band)

    Ab Wheel
    BWx10x5

    This session did not start off well. Two girls that are competing with us in April went before us. As I was showing one of them her knee travel, my knee partially dislocated. This is the third time that this has happened in a year with each time more painful than the previous one. I walked around for about 20 minutes and then popped it back into alignment. I took my time and very tentatively added weight (I wore a sleeve the entire time) before adding my briefs and suit. I worked up to where I wanted to get and then called it after I hit my opener. The knee is tender and pretty sore today, but there's not a huge limp. The meet is still on, but I won't be demonstrating a valgus force anymore.

  20. Ouch big man!! I could not even imagine dislocating my knee. I know what shoulders feel like but a knee seems brutal. Is this something from a past injury that now makes you more prone to this? Are there any therapies that can prevent this?

    My knees have been loose for as long as I can remember. I guess that it's the ligaments are stretched and allows for too much mobility within the joint. I don't think there is any therapy for it, but it generally only happens in a non-lifting scenario.

  22. I hope you recover from it quickly and maintain it. Sorry to hear

  23. Yeah,not much can be done for ligaments. I would still see if you could ask a PT that you might know about any knee therapies to tighten up your knee.

  25. I had a busy day today and walking around on it actually made it feel a lot better. It's still a little tender around the meniscus/MCL area, but it's not nearly as sore as it had been previously when this happened.
