    I need to get used to depth in these new shoes. My partner kept telling me I was below depth, too. On top of that, I haven't done ANY mobility in well over a month. Yippee.

    I personally feel that you don't have to "sit back" as hard in Oly shoes. When I try to each back with my hips, I miss depth.

    Yeah, I need to accumulate some time with them to find it. I'm trying to learn how to bottom out at parallel in them. I'm going to need to start taking videos again to help find it.

    Today:

    Squat:
    275x8
    315x5
    365x5

    Deadlift:
    405x1x5
    455x1x3
    495x1x3

    Reverse hyper:
    50x12
    100x12
    150x12x2

    Calves: DC

    Not a bad day considering I maxed my front squat yesterday. 365 felt pretty light, I had more reps in me. I can tell I'm a lot stronger.

    Deadlift I tried over/under for the first time in like 6 weeks. Just trying to get comfortable with it again.

    Westside: week 10- ME upper

    Pin press:
    225x6
    275x3
    295x1
    315x1

    Grind city, letting the weight stop completely into dead weight is no joke.

    Pause bench (2 chains-no idea their weight):
    135x10
    185x5
    225x5
    Add slingshot
    275x3

    The last set is the most weight I've ever had in my hands. It was definitely 345 or above w/ the chains.

    Bench w/ tear drop plates:
    85x12
    125x12
    165x12x2

    ^phucking brutal. Those weird ass plates forged at the dawn of time are challenging.

    Rolling DB triceps extensions: 35x12x3

    Pull-ups: BWx5x4- bicep felt iffy

    NG pull-downs: 10x4

    Reverse fly: 12x3

    Preacher cable curl: a lot of slow TUT reps

    Solid day. Bench is feeling good. I need to get stronger.

    This was my last heavy day before maxes, BTW. Then I'm restarting the same program for the fourth time. I'm still loving it.

    Westside: DE lower:

    Cambered bar squat:
    245x2x3
    295x2x3

    DE deadlift: let's just say a lot. 405 moved pretty slow, though. Readjusting to DL'ing again.

    KB lunges: 20x3

    Tire flip:
    250# x10x3
    600x1x2

    600# tire was phucking HEAVY. I need to improve my technique.

    I miss tire flips. I will probably add them in on conditioning days now. One of my clients randomly informed me that he found some on a local high school practice field...so I have to go check out how big they are.

    Hell yeah, Bolt. Check them out. I'm going to be implementing them twice a week at least. Hell, I didn't even know we had them until yesterday and there's 10 of them.

    I swear, almost anything you can think of that a gym needs, my gym has 3 different kinds.

    No to the first one. Possibly on the second. I'm not sure what a super axle looks like, but we have a few different axle's.

    There used to be a lot of strongman equipment, but another guy opened a gym 45min away and bought most of the equipment off our owner. But, he closed down his gym and is selling it back.

    I swear though, if any of you guys ever come to the Cincinnati area, this gym is the best one short of Elite and Westside. My gym owner is really good friends with Louie and his wife, I'm trying to get him to talk to Louie so I can train there for a day.

    Do you know how thick the axle is? I know we don't have one with the weights bolted on, but we have different sized axles, some are huge.

    Most should be about 2", the real awesome part are the hubs.

    I haven't met anyone that goes to a gym that has those.

    Why are the hubs more desirable? Sounds like they would be a pain in the ass to unbolt and bolt back on.

    Or is the hub desirable because it eliminates the weights from spinning?

    Mostly just because that's what they use in WSM, and it doesn't bounce around like it does when you have tires.

    I keep wanting too especially the days I feel great but the more quality training I put in and the less max testing I do, the better I will perform come meet day. I've hit several rep PRs that are over 6, and for me I usually hit more than what I calc, at least on deads. I have patience though. My guys keep askin me when I'm gona do it.

    Yeah, me and you have pretty dissimilar training styles. I couldn't imagine not hitting 1-3 rep maxes every week, lol. I do build up volume in supplemental and back-down sets, though.

    I agree man, I think you got it. It's only a matter of when you try.

    Good deload day. Bench is feeling stronger than ever.

    One of the guys at my gym, who has a 2100# total, was telling me a lot of dirt on Westside and Louie. I found it pretty funny.
    Lol. It's funny how everybody who knows how it is at the top of this game has something to say about everybody else who's at the top. Lot of secretive behavior. How did you like the yellow slingshot?

    Haha, for real man. I just asked him what his total was and he runs off on a tangent about Louie, how he really makes his money, what he does for the WS guys and other ****.

    According to him, Louie fixes meets, tells judges to give his guys a 2-3" squat variance for depth. Also, my gym ran a pro/am and he said Dave Hoff stuffed his shirt with towels.

    Honestly, I didn't notice any difference except a 2XL is easier to fit in than the red one

    Oh, I remember hearing about Hoff's shirt-gate. Just curious, I was under the impression yellow was stronger than red.

    Ah, the infamous Hoff meet where he had knee wraps under his singlet. I wouldn't doubt that Louie influences the judges as only the Westside guys get that ridiculous leniency on squats.

    Kind of sucks when it gets called a world record. I'd never say that to his face!

    Outside of that one meet, his bench is freaking amazing. He doesn't do a soft lockout like a lot of geared guys and his 1000# was solid.

    Yea he is ridiculously strong. I don't know enough about gear to know the skill curve, though. It'd be cool if he came back and hit the record parallel or below.

    I get getting a little wiggle room at anything over a grand, but it doesn't even look like his hamstring is parallel with the hip much less the knee.

    Exactly. At parallel okay, take the judges call bc he has to do it in the moment thinking about the lifters safety and making it legit, but his femur was angled way up unfortunately. I agree with you.

    It's made out of the same material as the original, but the angled sleeve makes it touch your chest sooner so you do get more poundage out of it. I probably didn't notice anything because I only benched 275 with it.

    Obviously I agree with you guys, Hoff's squat was not even close.

    On another note: I have an extraordinary amount of schoolwork to do in the subsequent weeks. But, after these two weeks I only have one more semester. Then I start my career, whatever that may be. The next year is going to be as ambiguous as ever.

    Does it fold less with the angled sleeves? That's the thing I always disliked about the SS vs the Ram.

    I don't believe it folded like my red one does. But literally, I only have one rep in with it. I'm going to use it again next week. I'll let you know.
