  4. it actually felt better than i expected, a little loose compared to wide stance but all in all not bad.

    if you look at the wide stance vid compared to this one, big difference

    no mcl pain

    what do you guys think about the bar speed? should I bump the opener up a little or keep it where it is?

  5. It looks good IMO. It looks like you're getting in the hole easier (that's what she said) Just keep that back tight. Around :24 almost seemed like you were going to round and good morning it up. If Rodja shows up in here I'm sure he would have better advice than ma. You going for 405?

    Txs bro, I sent it to him

  7. No more June 2nd meet for me. I won't be where I want to be by then. There's an RPS meet in July but you have to qualify before hand. Any other option I'd have to fly back to my home state in the Midwest to visit family and compete USAPL but doubt that'll happen so I think I'll have to wait for Aug/Sep to roll around. My thoughts were to compete once more raw but now I'm contemplating making the switch over to equipped lifting.

    Push/pull still on at my gym but it's unsanctioned and I'm not really worried about it

    Didn't seem like ya fell forward, but more of just a stick point I guess.

    i see it, initial move up. i'll try a simple 'chest up' first. i def need more practice narrow stance. i'm gonna do some singles on friday w like 275 (73%) to get some more work in. prolly do this for two more weeks then shut it down. i don't think i lost anything from wide stance, if anything i think i got more bounce out of the hole.

  11. Speed was all there, just remember to fire your hips in as well as up, push your head into the bar out of the hole, and keep that chest up. Some people like different cues. I know if I stall, I push my head back into the bar. Except for my big SSB squat today. :-(

    It looks like after your initial bounce, you bring the hips up and the chest drops *a bit*, kind of a "tilt" forward.

    I could be wrong though, that's just what I kind of gathered. Like the bar speed, though.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    txs man, rodja thinks i'm coming forward a bit too.

    i think i can bring this around in the next few weeks. big difference between the wide a narrow versions, just need a little more practice.

    mcl's felt fine all day, so there's def something to what AZMIDLYF pointed out...

  14. Cube Method W2 RE Bench

    Floor Press w/ Titan Ram
    225x6
    245x6
    265x6

    Incline DB Press
    65x20x2

    Close grip 2-board
    185x8x2
    195x8

    Unilateral Standing DB Press
    35x15x2

    Banded Flys (orange)
    x2x8

    Cable Tricep Pushdown
    130x12x3

    Will upload videos of floor press tomorrow. Went with the Ram and 2-board to relieve my shoulders. They're feeling better and better each day but I don't want to chance it yet.

    Diverted from the Cubes prescribed layout to align with Pripelins optimal reps.

    No lifting the next 2 days. Core work tomorrow. Conditioning Wednesday.

  15. Nice floor presses! Whereabouts does your Ram stop supporting you? My Slingshot gave up about 6in from lockout, but that might be because I jacked it high on my elbows to get more out of it.

  16. Video update

    Thanks dude. Shoulder prehab exercises are paying off bigtime. The load comes off the Ram once my elbows begin to pass my torso I guess

  17. That's good. I've really been using as much gear as I can this mesocycle with 3 comps in two month. Just wanna keep from getting banged up.

  18. The ram looks like it sits lower on the arms which could be advantageous. The sling shot does sit higher. It was pointed out to me that possibly because Bell has such a wide body that the best place he could design it to sit is up higher around the elbows. I don't know if that is fact though.

    Looks like them triceps are strong Sean; lockouts were solid speed every rep and under control.

    Yeah, Mark wasn't always jacked and tan like he is now. Also, I have a feeling that the Slinger is more for overload than the Ram. The Ram leaves you about where a bench shirt does, hence the sleeve design being similar to a bench shirt. The Slinger can carry you almost all the way to lockout. I'm going to try mine as far toward my shoulders as possible next time, so that I actually do some work instead of having my equipment bench 405 and me just hold the weight.
