    His bench was a WR for his weight class in the WPC, but since they didn't have WPC judges on hand (even though it was advertised they did since it was Nationals), it didn't qualify.

  3. Well, it's kinda like this: an announcement was made during rules that If going for a wr, tell the judge, so they can make sure the correct judge was doing the judging. It's up for debate right now whether or not the WPC judges were there.

    I thought for sure joe smo was a WPC judge, so I'm not sure wtf, and really don't want to comment any more than that...

    Ok cool, thanks. I don't know **** about equipped lifting, aside from what I've read on some logs around here

  5. 6/16 Squat




    Had to leave early today and didn't get to any assistance work. Final two sets were both ~635; first set was with worn out reverse light bands that maybe took 50# off at the bottom. First time using this suit and decided to go straps up for ****s and giggles. It actually went better than I expected and was right at parallel.

  8. Ironically, my squat confidence is really low right now. My body doesn't feel stable in the unrack and I can't get a good rhythm going. I'm not sure what's up with me physically as my body isn't real happy with me. I'm not going to pull heavy this week as it may be time to give my hips a bit of a break.

  9. You look way more stable than you feel. Definitely sturdy in the hole. I'm jealous of that external rotation. When I get to parallel in briefs, I start swimming bad, even at less than my raw max.

  10. 6/18 Upper

    OHP
    155x3
    165x3
    175x3
    145x9

    DB Rows
    145x21

    Incline DB Press
    80x10
    85x10
    90x9

    Cable Rows
    200x12x2

    Tate Press/Seated DB Curls (simultaneous)
    40x12/40x10
    40x12/40x10
    40x12/40x10

    Y/Pressdowns/Side Laterals
    20x8/100x12/35x15
    20x8/100x12/35x15
    20x8/100x12/35x15

    OHP progress is still going strong and my last set of 145x9 might be a PR, but it's been awhile since I tracked them and no clue what my weight was then either. It may not be a true PR, but it's a gauge that I can use for now. Didn't quite get the reps I wanted on DB rows, which is why I added in some cable rows after my incline DB presses.

    What I have started to change is my nutrition. I have always been solid about getting my calories in, but my frequency has been mediocre (at best). However, I've been better about cooking/packing food and getting in an extra 1-2 meals per day. As a result, my weight is almost to 230 right now and I will tinker with calories as I don't want to get too much heavier to alter my gear grooves, especially my shirt.

  11. 6/19 Lower

    Sumo
    Worked up to 560x1 (full gear, straps up)

    Conventional
    365x3x5

    Hypers/Donkey Calf Raises
    BWx15/360x15
    BW+45x15x3/400x15x3

    Ab Wheel
    BWx8x3
    BWx10

    Well, my opener looked a bit ugly as I kinda lost my balance about halfway up. My belt was too tight and I couldn't get into my groove. The straps up only made it worse, but wasn't the major problem.

  12. 6/21 Upper

    Floor Press
    195x6x2
    235x3x3

    Neutral Pullups/Dips
    BWx7/BWx10
    BWx7/BWx10
    BWx7/BWx10

    Leaning Overhead Rope Ex/Facepulls
    70x10/100x10
    70x10/100x10
    70x10/100x10

    Easy day at the gym to just get some blood flowing. I don't feel overly fatigued, but want to get ahead of the curve as I've been pushing 90+% on all three lifts the past three weeks and I figured now would be a good time to pull back slightly.

  13. 6/23 Lower

    Squat

    Worked up to 615x1 w/ straps up

    Suspended SSB GM
    225x8
    265x5
    285x5
    285x7

    DB Side Bends
    90x10
    95x10
    100x10

    AB Wheel
    BWX10x3

    My technique is off right now, which is why I lowered the weight this week instead of taking my second attempt. It's my unrack that is giving me trouble and everything is suffering as a result. I know part of my problem is lingering tightness in my lumbar that is causing me to lean to one side (which you can see in last week's videos). I've figured out part of the problem and it's getting better as I actually had some good unracks today. I need to get this straightened out and gain some confidence before the meet as I feel good about the other two lifts, but my squat has been hit and miss lately.

  14. 6/24 Upper

    OHP
    135x5
    155x5
    165x6
    135x12

    Meadows Rows
    135x10
    135x10-drop-90x10

    Dips
    BWx15
    BW+45x10x2

    Cable Rows
    200x12x2

    Tate Press/Seated DB Curls (simultaneously done)

    45x10/45x9

    Facepulls
    90x12
    100x10x2

    Wife wanted to go to the gym today so I tagged along and went ahead with my normal training a day early. OHP wasn't where I wanted it to be, but I had a solid final set and found a nice groove. Weight is holding solid right now at 227-228 and I'm trying to get a few pounds heavier before the meet and then cut to get to 220.

    So what did you do when you took the wife to the gym?
    Does she actually train?

    She enjoys them for some reason. She's up to pulling 135 for reps now on deads.

  21. Once you find a woman who actually loves training as much as you do.. Better keep her.

  22. My wife trains with me everyday.

    Lucky. My girl trains but she's more into light weight circuits, Zumba, and the like. I'll steer her my way eventually haha

  24. I wouldn't say she loves training; it's more that she knows she needs to do it than want to do it.

    Well **** at least she's doing it. The good stuff too.

  26. 6/26 Lower

    Sumo
    415x5
    465x3
    505x3
    525x3

    DB BSS
    40x10x4

    Hypers/Donkey Calf Raises
    BW+45x15x3/400x15x3

    I need to get my briefs take in a bit. I love the comfort of the Jacks,, but it feels like they stretch out more than the others and they lose some support. I focused in reps today instead of going really heavy and did just briefs instead of full gear. I plan to still pull in my Jack and will try Ace/Ace on Sunday to see if that provides more support on the bottom. I'll probably get my suit taken in as well since it comes up rather easily.

  28. 6/28 Bench

    Worked up to 455x1 (1-board)
    435x1 PR


    Wide Pullups
    30 reps

    Prone Incline Shrugs/Band Facepulls (light)
    80x10x3/15x3

    Rolling Ex/Side Laterals
    30x15x2/30x15x2

    I was feeling a little saucy this evening and had some nice energy, so I went for it. I hate saying this, but I really don't have a solid plan when it comes to gear work as it's so dependent on feeling that day and I didn't set out to touch today. However, after I nailed 455 to a 1, I decided to buck my plan of no touching until the last session. Just a few months ago, I was struggling to hit 405 to a 1 board and had very little confidence in my bench. Now, I feel like I have finally hit the proper positions in the shirt and, most importantly, confident in myself. Moral of the story: as fun as gear can be, you have to be patient and "grow" into the gear. It's a kick in the balls and it takes time for your body to adapt not only from a CNS standpoint, but also from a connective tissue standpoint.
