  1. If the collars at your gym are too long, switch to 25's.


  2. Sh1t out of luck for meets I think. I'll do the USAPL Boston Open in September in single ply. There's a August EPF Nationals in New Hampshire I could drive to but haven't even heard of EPF and they don't have any meet info.

    Nope. APA/USAPL/RPS and I guess the EPF is a New England only thing. I could do one in Missouri but if I fly home to see family, I'm not gonna want to compete. I think I might take the September USAPL meet seriously for training and get used to the equipment over the summer. Thinkin 700 squat single ply sounds great lol

    I competed in a suit once. I bought it and trained with it 3 or 4 times before the meet. That was a mistake. Good thing you are giving yourself some time to learn the gear.

  6. Cube Method W2 ME Squat

    Squat
    445x2x5 w/ wraps

    Reverse Average Band
    Edit: (forgot its a 55lb bar) 505x2 w/o wraps

    Toe Elevated RDL
    315x8
    345x8
    365x8

    Leg Press
    360x15x4

    Not a fan of the leg press but I was short on time and exhausted from work so I wanted to get home.

    Squats were so so. Work is obnoxiously stressful this week and diet has been lacking because of it.

    Of course my phone runs out if memory right when I got underneath the bar for reverse band. Next time.

    Vids to come.

    Same here. If this squat video is like his other ones, I'm sure he'll have some good speed with that weight too. Pretty impressive.


    Sean what kind of shoes do you wear to squat?

    Thank you gents

    I felt real sluggish because of work and diet. Im responsible for maintaining several hundred thousands dollars worth of search and rescue equipment that's being inspected next week. Even started dipping again. Stressed.

    I wear chucks and sometimes pull in minimalist new balances.

    I'm keeping fully raw reverse average bands in the toolbox. Should have a nice carry over to squats with belt and wraps.

    Leg press was 30 seconds between sets.

    Last rep of 445 was paused until I thought my face was going to explode.

    Back is bleeding from the 55lb bar

    Hopefully Monday. I never take weeks off like this but I was feeling trashed from the meet and I have a bunch of crap to do this week anyways so it seemed a good time to take off.

    I am eager to get back into it tho.

  15. I squatted in chucks for the longest time. Then I moved to wrestling shoes... I just bought a pair of olympic weightlifting shoes that I'm going to try this weekend.

  17. If you squat narrow like me then maybe look into some olympic lifting shoes. I know I spent a ton and probably not necessary but I LOVE my adipowers.

    haha yeah well you should have seen me when I started 5/3/1 back in October. I could only hit 465 3" above parallel. I don't think I took depth very seriously until the beginning of the winter. I actually find myself setting my lower back and pushin my butt out even to sit on the toilet or a chair lol squats everywhere!

    Having a boy just over a year old helps...they naturally have perfect form- when he bends over to pick up a toy-perfect GM..when he squats down and holds something-paused goblet squat lol

    You'll get there man. Your training seems a lot more structured than mine. you also have a much better work capacity than me

    We'll see how structured it stays, although I'm sure I will get there (sometime in the next 5-8 years lol)

    Testing that work capacity Sunday. Figure my first day back before an RE upper will be prowler sprints until I cry (no vomiting though, I despise vomiting)

  28. With you taking some steps into gear I might try out some knee wraps. Just using them will make me feel hardcore.

    I won't compete without them lol If you don't need them I wouldn't rely on them BUT they're ****ing awesome haha My Elite FTS black/whites suck, too stiff. APT blue arrows are awesome, huge stretch and rebound, izner z's are so so, I only plan on using them for the USAPL meet as APT is a no go.
