    Touche. I deserved that. Nay, needed to hear it.

    I should've spit some 'baccy in there. Would've ripped 600 off of the floor with a vengeance.

  4. My buddy who is coming to this meet is like killing himself right now trying to lose weight for 181. Trying to get a state record in bench and has some decent DL and SQ numbers... less than me but. He doesn't squat to depth either lol. But anyways, training looks good man. how you feeling? I need to catch up. Super glue "new skin" works. Tape during all lifts.

    I'm doing good, man. I would really dearly love to decompress my spine and I desperately need to loosen up my glutes and hip flexors this AM. It's all gonna loosen up, but that's what I get from deadlifting two days in a row.

    I get the whole chasing records thing. I've hit 350 this cycle and the record is 355.

    The thing about federation records is they don't make a fu(k. Whether I "hold a record" or not, I still know a 180lb twenty year old the next town over that has a hundred pounds on my bench.

    There's only one world record. If you're going for that, go ahead and kill yourself making weight. If not, be comfortable.

    I'm three weeks out. I'm leaving Thursday after my dad gets off work. Weigh in Friday morning (hopefully between 198-210) and hit it Saturday.

    I have rep squats later this week, next week is rep bench, heavy pulls, and speed squats, and then the week after will be openers and if I can find a proper way to accommodate resistance, second attempts.

    My cycle finished up a week early, so I'm going to work openers and do one assistance in more of a positional fashion (I.e. pause squats, two board, pause deficit pulls)

  13. 465/315 or 335/455

    Seconds will be 510/350/495, depending on how I feel.

    What are the percentages of these to your 1rm?

    Squat it's 93% of my max, bench 315 is 87% 335 is 93, deadlift 455 is 86% and 465 is 89%. My benching and deadlifting isn't as strong as it was in April, but my squatting is much further along.

    Have you tried your opener yet? That's an aggressive % out of the gate...

    I hit my squat opener for a single and a double two weeks in a row, I've hit 315 on bench more often than I can count, and I just hit 455 for a double from a deficit last week and just hit 465 the day after speed deads this week. I figure I've only been powerlifting for a year, I still have improvements to make.

    Cool, you don't want to miss your opener. It can fck w your head. The only thought you should have is fcking smoke your openers. Then you can relax a bit. Judge your third on the bar speed of your second.

    Kill it...

  19. 7/26 Rep Squats

    Wrist Strap SSB Squat
    worked up to 295x8
    315x5 ditched straps, they were messing with me.
    355x1
    385x1 with belt
    445x1 belt wraps (monolift practice)
    445x1 just briefs (more monolift practice) hips were absolutely swimming at depth. Barely got it out of there.
    525x0 I think it was an inch high, knees went forward at the bottom. Didn't sit back hard enough. Technical errors and today was just off from the beginning.

    Sled Pushes
    +180x100ydsx3 with 3min rest
    +180x60ydsx3 with 1min rest

    Wasn't really up for any assistance, squats were labored and draining, and the sled work was really tough enough for me. Half of it was uphill and the downhill was a slow walk so as not to build momentum. Squats were just off, I'd chalk that up to two weeks of heavy squatting and three heavy deadlift sessions in the past two weeks. Still hit 445 with weight to spare. Monolifting helped a lot. I breathed out on the 445 with briefs, highly unneccesary and just wrong. Vids to come momentarily.

  20. Here they are. As you can see, I had a hard time finding the rhythm. I just stuck with it and got my knee bends in. Definitely a huge difference in squatting between a day of work and a day off of work. Makes me wonder about my deadlifts this week. It was my second day in a row pulling AND my first day back working in a week. Perhaps I'll be good for a lot more at the meet. I sure hope so.

  21. To me, it looked like you got depth at the last second but close. Definitely didn't over do it.

    Definitely not gonna overdo depth in those! If you wonder why multi-ply guys only squat TO parallel and not an inch below, just try it one time with a weight 100lbs less than your raw max. It's downright shocking.

    When I first saw it on my phone, I thought it was for sure 2-3" high, but looking at it in stop-motion, I can see a hip crease and it looks like it is parallel or maybe an inch high. Hard to say. It will improve as I work on some box squatting for technique.

    My Metal Pro Squatter and Viking Pro Bencher came in today!! The squatter is way tight in the legs and the straps are also pretty tight. I think I'd have a hard time getting to the bar on deadlifts, but we're going to have to make sure about that in a couple weeks! The bencher is nice and comfortable fitting all the way around. I'm gonna give that big bad boy a spin today.

  23. Let's say it's adequate for training but close for a meet.

    Eh, I'd rather train ballz deep and have a judge tell me to cut them higher at the meet. You never know what you're going to get.

  25. Yes but just because you were an inch shallow doesn't mean you aren't gona make any progress from it. Chalk it up to going deeper next time and training form, but realize you still put in decent work.

    For sure. Part of it is that if your form is not on point, your equipment will terminate the depth for you. I needed to get my knees out more, sit back more, et cetera. Really my current squat is very different from a multi-ply squat. My feet are shoulder width and I open my knees up and sit between them when I'm raw. That will not work in gear.

  27. Very true. My squat blows cause I have a bad build for that anyways. So I'm still trying to find my groove for a deep squat. I can't imagine having to change it up after learning it so well one way either going from raw to geared. Blows.

    It's like the Dave Tate article that came out last week. You can't be good at both at the same time. But, I fully believe that one helps the other. The overload from gear and the muscle built from raw both help each other. I just wanna compete raw and multi-ply like Brandon Lilly and Chris Duffin. Nobody can take anything away from what you do raw, and if you're gonna gear up for a bigger total, why not gear to the max?

    Don't think that poor leverages can't be overcome. I'm pretty sure Chris Hickson can squat 700 raw, and he's 6'4" with a true deadlifter's build. My buddy is 6'2" 198 and he squats 455 with a narrow stance.

  29. I definitely believe it. It's just finding my spot right now that I'm finally using good form is tough.

    You're right about both I think. And you can do anything you set your mind to do.

  30. 7/27 Shirt Spin! (and speedwork)

    Raw Benches in shirt style
    Up to 315x1 (then 315x1 raw style)
    365x1 slingshot

    Added shirt
    315 float
    365x1
    385x1 then remembered to flare elbows
    405x1 ffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff YEAH!

    It was weird, I didn't know what to do with a loose shirt! Lol. It's incredibly easy to get on. Slide it all the way up, a tug here and there and we're benchin! The other shirts I had were a chore to get into. Love the groove on this shirt. Jack it all the way down and it's a nice upper ab touch. It leaves me pretty quickly, and I couldn't twist the big-ass sleeves to help with that. Flaring the elbows really helped the shirt carry higher.

    Touch was comfy, though it's hard to feel. I could definitely grow into this shirt, get stronger, and progress as normal. Don't know if I want it any tighter until I get everything nailed down in it.
