I'm sure you're figuring this out, but gear is very difficult to get down. It's been around a year in a shirt now and I really am starting to only now get a true feel for the shirt in terms of where it needs to be on my frame and the optimal ROM.M.Ed. Ex Phys

Nice and smooth all the way through lockout! Looks like you'll be good for some more in the near future.

Made a big switch on this day: Ace briefs instead of my Jacks. For whatever reason, I wasn't getting a lot of support from them anymore and it's the reason I've felt so unstable on squat lately. My unracks were awesome today and those Inzer Gripper wraps are amazing. I brought my stance in slightly as I saw my knees were caving in too often for my liking and some knee pain as well.

I was looking at those gripper wraps. Worth the purchase I assume?
Squat looked awesome dude. You can up fast.

Do you think the Jacks have stretched or worn already? Did you feel more powerful with bringing your stance in, or just more stable? My knees shoot forward in the hole when they don't track over my feet, and it's exacerbated in briefs.

BW+45x5 (irritated left bicep)
DB Curls/Pressdowns/Side Laterals
Not my best pressing day ever. OHP felt a tad heavier than usual and dips irritated my left bicep to the point where I could only do BW. There's no swelling or pain as of now and it may have been a fluke, but still is a bit concerning considering it's ~1 month to the meet.

Bet it's a fluke considering your OHPs had been getting stronger.
I didnt realize how close your meet is man

Not sure what my plan is going to be for the next several weeks as its always depends on so many things. I plan to touch once more before the meet and need to take both squat and deadlift with straps up at least once more as well.

Just poppin in to say thanks to all you guys. The older/stronger PL guys on here are some upstanding folks and I've learn a great deal following all the logs and what not.

When you get more confidence in the eccentric portion of the lift you are going to be unstopable because your concentric is pure explosion.

I'd be proud to have an OHP day that looked like that. Hope the bicep feels better quick Rodja!

Sumo (+120# chain)
510x1x2 (straps up)
Suspended SSB GM
Walking DB Lunges
Standing Cable Crunches/Planks
I've still yet to get the hang of going straps up and I can tell that it's time to pull back on deadlifts for a little bit. Bar speed was low and very inconsistent. Not one of my best sessions, but its part of my plan to overreach.

In your experience, how long does it take for supercompensation to occur after overreaching? I'm sure it's different for everyone, I was just wondering how it's figuring into this training cycle.

Sounds like your timing is pretty good. Though last time you thought you were burned out, you crushed it the next time out.
