    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)

  8. 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.

    I'd say go without wraps as long as you can if you're strong at it. That makes me a huge hypocrite though. I'm going to try to do my RE days without them sometimes.

    His meet is soon right?

    That is crazy right there^^

    He competes next weekend. He is coming up this weekend and we are going to play around with some stims to see what he likes for the meet. What was your set up as far as your meet stims Sean?

  17. I personally wouldn't take stims. My only supplement was caffeine free focus xt when i first got there. Maryland Powerlifting had a good 'first meet' article that recommended that I think. I dragged ass a little when I woke up that morning but nerves/excitement/being amped was all it took. It clicked out of no where once it got closer to warmups. Not sure what other people's take is. Ammonia did the job when I started feeling wrecked.

    I'd say a cup of coffee in the morning and that'd be about it. A full power meet can easily go all day depending on the number of lifters. It'd take a lot of stims to keep you going all day.

  20. Yeah that was my thought as well. He will be drinking a gallon jug of IForce Compete thru the meet but I was just thinking of having a pre-mixed bottle of Enhanced along to sort of sip on for the meet. He is sort of a stim rookie and I have let him try a preworkout now and then at the minimum dose. It had him wired for hours. Lol This is one reason why he is here this weekend for experimentation. Mwah ha ha

    Enhanced! I'm loving it more n more. I'd toss some Gatorade in with the Compete also for some calories.

  22. I sipped some CHO/BCAAs/PeptoPro during my competition. I was super nervous so I didn't really eat anything before hand though.

  23. I'll probably do like a lighterish stim on the way and then maybe have something in the bag incase I get tired.

    Also got some ammonia caps

  27. It works too! I'm around 800mg for my optimal dose and it's killer! Then post workout I take 2-3g of Vit C and the jitters go away.

  28. holy crap..I've never done more than 500

  29. I used a heaping scoop on Enhanced about 30 minutes before my flight started for squat. I woke up really early and had already eaten twice by the time the meet started, so I didn't eat until after bench when we had a lunch break. I did sip on 10g BCAA/50g Karbolyn throughout squat and bench, though.

    I used to work at Starbucks. There were days when my caffeine consumption was tipping 1500!!!

  31. Enhanced hits me pretty quick. Wished I had it then. I went with a gas station Monster

    If you went with a rockstar you could have added 50-60lbs to your total

    This is actually similar to how mine went other than me not eating anything before.

    But which rockstar is the question? Some have 160mgs, some have 270mgs.

    I just like my rockstar

    In all seriousness I have uncut so I will probably do two in the morning, and if I start to drag two later in the day.

    True enough, but Monster has there extreme versions as well. I'm a fan of both. I drink the lo-carb Monster and the white Rockstar daily!

    This actually was the protocol I had in mind for him^^ with the bottle of pre-mixed Enhanced for when he starts to drag later on. I am going to try and get a bowl of oats/whey in him before we leave for the meet.
