    You're gonna blow up adding in SSB. That bar will bake your potato. Don't worry about grip, shyt happens. Get it next time. Dig your hands into that good knurling.

    Thanks Sean, this place blows me away. I was deadlifting and this monster comes up and we're talking about training. This dude is a 585 raw bencher. He use to do strongman, but PL's now. Cool as hell. I guess he is good friends with John Meadows.

    I don't know what kind of SSB it was. There's 4 different SSB's so I just grabbed one, lol.

    I'm definitely going to mix up my ME work. I've got the rest of this week and I'm taking a much needed deload. My body is rocked right now, I'm surprised I pulled 525 today. The big dude said it shot up fast and he said he wouldn't be surprised if I'll be pulling 600 in the next 2 months. We'll see, I'm just excited to be there.

    I hope so man. I've been itching to try one out. It's a lot different. Those 290 or whatever sets were some of the hardest sets of my life.

    I think the slack played a role in my grip some how. I need to stop yanking now that I'm on a real bar. The knurling is legit for sure. I've got holes in my shorts from it.

    Nice work! Maybe do static holds in last reps for grip training. Also, SSB at my gym is 90lbs, so if it feels heavy, it may be

    Definitely bro. From reading all your guy's logs I knew I had to pull the handles down and it helped a lot. I did those sets beltless and they're more taxing on the core than front squats, IMO.

    Another note, the matting there is much better. I'm finding I'm not having the issue of toes shifting when screwing my feet in. Also, mono's are the balls and not squatting into a mirror has helped my neutral head positioning a lot.

    Yeah, that and some farmers. I'm still bewildered on how my grip gave out, lol. I have literally pulled 5+ on a stiff bar w/o any knurling with no issues whatsoever. Oh well, I don't see it being a problem in the future.

    Christ, 90? I don't think the one I used was that heavy, lol.

    I set the ****er up backwards in the rack twice now. My gym is real small so maneuvering it back right feels about a warm up lol

    Good call in farmers, too

    Haha, you're already there Sean. Or 10-15lbs from it.

    You squat 2x more than me, you're deadlifting almost 600, you have a dong the size of a walrus and now you want me to buy your supps?

    I did not. Ed, the 585 raw bencher, mentioned Monday that Ronnie came in earlier. I was benching today, looked over and saw that he signed the 200# DB.

    I did, however, get a chance to take a picture with Ronnie at the Arnold a couple years ago.

    Pretty sub-par workout today by the way. Not worth posting. I accumulated ~12 hours of sleep this week thus far. I have 34 pages of info to memorize for my exam tomorrow. Then, literally, 270 PP slides to memorize tomorrow night.

    I've become a pro at procrastination. It's a wonder how I keep my GPA >3.5. Actually, if my financial management final bodes well, this will be my 3rd consecutive 4.0 semester. Not too bad considering I'm in a pretty stringent business school and my first 4 semesters of college I didn't go to play "school" and had a less than appreciable GPA.

    Almost there; one more semester after this. Then graduate school, maybe.

    Depends on if I can get it paid for, if I can get a good job with my bachelors, or if I want to go another route. The good thing about my situation is I have a lot of connections.

    I slept 3 hours the night before last night and 1 hour last night. I passed out after class today for a solid 6 hours. Only 2 exams next week, so the hard part is mostly over.

    Late night workout:

    WG pull ups:
    BW+35x5x3

    Lat pull downs: 15x3

    Straight arm pull downs: 12x3 SS band pull aparts 25x3

    DB curls: 12x3

    One arm cable curls: 15x3

    All I had time for. I slept too long and left myself 40 min to workout before the gym closed. Some is better than none though.

    I got some DE squats/deads tomorrow and DE bench Sunday. Everything got pushed back a day because Thursday I had to study for 10hrs. Not a big deal considering I'm heading into a much needed deload. Really focusing on getting them clean calories.

    Westside: DE lower

    DL: 365x2x6

    Played around with form a little bit. Ed suggested I move my feet out to hip width. Felt good, pulls were flying up. Pulled sumo a set w/ 315 and it was so easy. Going to throw some more in.

    Squat:
    275x2x4
    315x1x4

    I used a real squat bar today. These weights are as if it's 45#, but I think it was heavier. Maybe 60? The thing I noticed about a squat bar is it's a lot thicker and it sticks to your back a lot better. I'm going to try to get the bar lower on my back.

    Reverse hyper: 50#x8x3

    Lying hamstring curl SS leg extensions: 8/12x3

    Standing calf raises: 12x3

    Good workout. They keep this place hot and I sweat like a MF'er. I also notice I'm working a lot faster here. Less distractions.

    I saw two of the biggest bodies I've seen since the Arnold here. They had to be pro BB'ers. They're walking around at ~300 easy.

    Did some fronts as well.

    200x5x2
    240x5

    Nothing heavy, just wanted to bury them with a slight pause.

    Good deload session today:

    Bench:
    225x5x3
    275x1

    Ass lift problem, eliminated. These benches are legit.

    OHP: 135x5x3

    Tate press: 30x8x3

    DB side lateral: 20x12x3

    Pull ups: BWx10x2

    T-bar row machine/set up: 8x3

    Pull over machine: 12x3

    Hammer curl (bar): 95x6x3

    Concentration curl: 20x15x3

    Got some blood flowing, my main objective is recovery. I've overreached for 3 weeks straight, need to let the body heal.

    Note of the day: the BB'er I mentioned Saturday, approximately the size of a house, was repping 405 for 12...on incline. Wtf?
