  1. Wraps help this when squatting right?

    Yes. Any type of compression helps out.

  3. 2/26

    Flat DB Press
    90x8x4

    Meadows Rows
    115x12
    135x10
    135x10-drop-90x10

    HS Rows (pronated)/Pullaparts (pronated and supinated)
    135x10/10/10
    135x10/10/10

    Facepulls/Dual Band Ex Rotation (mini)
    100x15/15
    100x15/15
    100x15/15

    Tate Press/BB Curl
    35x15/95x8
    40x10/95x8
    40x10/95x8

    This was simply about getting some blood flowing and focusing more on the smaller muscles. It was a lot of volume, but most of it is very low on demand (outside of the drop set) and nothing was to failure.

    2/27

    Speed Pulls
    345x2x10

    GM
    225x8x4

    Standing Cable Crunches/DB Side Bends
    110x15/80x10
    110x15/80x10
    110x15/80x10

    I took some extra caffeine before this session and was humming right along the entire time. I only have a few more sessions of non-speed pulling and I already have opener established: 545. This is a very conservative number for me to total and because I don't know how I will feel by this time.

  4. Opener is there just for confidence...then you get after it

  5. 3/1Bench
    Worked up to 495x1 (3-board)
    455x1 (2-board)
    425x1 (1-board)

    Band Pullapart Series (mini)
    3 sets of 10

    Today sucked. Flat out ****ing sucked. I couldn't get tight enough at any point and felt like my back was flat on the bench. I was able to complete my reps, but with about 1/3 of the speed as last week. Physically, I feel fine, but I guess the CNS stayed on the couch on this day and next week will be a full deload. Not just a raw week, but a complete deload. After that, I will have three training weeks left and most of them will be openers and second attempts.

  6. I'm sure you'll get right into it after your deload. Do you feel your other lifts are being affected?

    I haven't even started thinking about openers, I suppose I should though.

    Wednesday felt fine, so I'm hoping that this was just an aberration.

  8. We wish every session could be PR'ville but that isn't reality. Like you said, you got it done so you kept moving forward. Reload and take aim at where you are headed bubba.

  9. 3/3

    Squat

    Worked up to 565x1 (briefs)
    605x1 (suit)
    655x1 (suit)

    Ab Wheel
    BWx10x4

    Tried out the Metal Jack briefs today and they are freaking incredible. They are without a doubt the most comfortable brief that I've ever used that still supplied support. These not only provided great hip support, but I felt like I was shot out of a damn cannon. There is some incredible tightness with the suit on top, but I will adjust to that and I need to lose about 10 pounds to make weight.

  12. That's some incredible speed with that kind of weight.

  13. They're a brief made for someone that is very flexible in that they provide great support even with a very wide stance. I was able to move mine out ~2" each side and didn't lose any support in the hips. One thing about them, though, is that you cannot get these on without some help. I can usually get a pair above my waist before I need to hang from a bar, but I couldn't get these my hips without the help of the crew. These briefs are a godsend for someone with large thighs like myself since most briefs are relatively small in the thighs (Ace, for example), but these have relatively proportionate thigh/hip room. As you can tell, I am really excited about these briefs and may actually get the suit as well, but that will be in June at the earliest.

    BTW, if anyone is interested, I am selling my Metal Pro briefs (size 46) for $80.

  14. 3/6

    Speed Pulls
    345x3x10

    GM
    135x10x2
    225x10x2

    Standing Cable Crunches
    100x15x4

    Typical speed session. Not my best effort, but got some work in and blood flowing.

  15. 3/8

    Speed Bench
    185x3x6

    DB Press
    90x8x3

    HS Row (neutral grip)
    180x10x4

    Rolling Ex/Facepulls/Rope Pressdowns
    35x12/120x12/70x12
    35x12/120x12/70x10


    3/10

    Squat
    405x3x3

    SSB GM
    170x10
    220x8x2

    Ab Wheel
    BWx12x4

    Deloading is complete and I now have ~3 training weeks left. I have 3 heavy squat, 3 heavy bench, and 1-2 heavy pull. My last real session will be heavy pulls on 4/3 and that will be my opener (545), which is maybe ~90% for me.

  16. 3/12

    Sumo

    Worked up to 575x2 (straps up; projected second attempt)

    Cambered GM

    235x10
    295x10x3

    DB Side Bends
    85x10
    100x10x2

    Standing Cable Crunches
    120x15
    140x15x2

    As of today, I am 31 days away from the meet and I will not be pulling this heavy again; my other pulling sessions will be speed days and my opener on 4/3. I realized that I hadn't be using my intra-WO drink over the past 10 days or so and I had been gassing out really early in my sessions and I was starting to get worried about my work capacity until I realized the change. Squat and deads are solid and I am very confident about hitting my 1st and 2nd attempts on each (605 and 650 for squat; 545 and 575 for deads). Bench, on the other hand, is still a lot more shaky than I'd like it to be. If worse comes to worse, I'll take a token raw bench just to get in a total.

  17. Is 575 your best double? What do you do intra?

    I'm pretty sure that it's my best double. I had a triple in me, but it's kinda pointless at this stage of training. Intra is 10g BCAA and 1 scoop Gatorade powder (~50g carbs).

  19. How far from Elite are you? I saw Westside looking for people to train there.... If only my total were 1,000lbs more..

    For 220, I've got a ways. For 198, I'm not too far off. If everything goes well, I can get a 700lb squat and 600lb pull at this meet, but it's my bench that is holding me back. Once I get up to 480-510 on bench, I will be on the cusp of Elite.

    I haven't been overly diligent nutrition wise for this meet and with no weight cut. My main priority has been to get in sufficient calories as opposed to focusing on the quality of them. For the next meet, however, I will be looking to get down to about 210-212 and then cut to 198. I'm about 225 right now and am going to drop about 6-8lbs before the meet so my squat gear isn't so ridiculously tight.

    Eh I'm on the same boat as ya. I thought about dropping to 198 but I'm no where near experienced enough to drop 27lbs without taking a hit on my numbers. I thought I read on here some place you follow the Paleo diet.. or was that someone else?

    While I was fighting, yes, I ate Paleo. Once I started seriously training for PL, I needed to "dirty" it up to put on some mass. I still eat gluten-free most of the time, but I eat a ton of rice, which isn't Paleo.

    Nor gatorade. Paleo would be impossible for me.

    We'll all be disappointed if you dont post videos of your meet BTW

    My wife will be there taking video. I need to get video so I can see what I did right and wrong.

  25. I definitely notice a difference just adding in 1 scoop of modern to my pre as far as fatigue goes. I thought about carbs as I train in the morning but was unsure if it mattered if you have an insulin spike during a workout since it decreases hgh...I could be way off, but still can't figure out solid answers. Any thoughts?
