Good job at the meet bro. It was a cool experience and that 550 pull had the crowd hyped. Sucked I couldn't stay to see you get the trophy, my buddy had to meet his roommate for a graduation thing, but that's awesome.
My goals now are to learn the Dave Tate strut and get wider than the black dude that benched 485 raw w/ opener speed.

Haha, yeah. They're looong term. That dude was wider than most cars.Originally Posted by herderdude
Definitely. I can't wait to get on the platform. I'm glad I've waited a lil bit I must say. I've learned so much this past year it's incredible. It's now time to establish a total.

When I was in my early 20's starting out at #160, eating to gain, was actually a W/O in itself, since I did not eat McDonald's etc. and I also tended to be quite lean and lanky.

So, as of right now, the thing I have my eye on is the Kumite Classic. An unsanctioned meet May 24. I have time to run two Cube cycles until then. Being that it's a small unsanctioned meet, I plan on doing it with no belt and NOT cutting for it. Goal is a 1400 total with AT LEAST a 500lb squat, 365 bench, and 500lb deadlift. I'll make up the 35lbs somewhere in there.
Then, I'll try to qualify for the XPC semis. I'll need a 1485. I think relearning a belt and wraps should net me 85lbs in my squat and pull.
I'm going to try to set a true ballz out 1RM in the beltless squat on Sunday, depending on how I feel. I have a crick in my neck and a knot on my scap that I'd like to resolve or mostly resolve first. By the time I'm ready to hit that max squat, I'll have a new log up. This one has gotten quite cumbersome.

I worked my scapula knot out a bit better last night. I leaned against the wall in a 45 degree angle and pushed into the ball hard. I was really able to "open" my scaps up a lot better than laying on the ground. Putting it in a sock helped friction wise too, as per Jinxie. Along with the knot, it felt like my scaps were being massaged for the first time ever.

So you leaned into the ball at a 45 degree angle? I could see how that would hit right on your scap as you opened it up.

I understand no knee wraps, but no belt? Blasphemy.

I'm telling you, I felt so horrible for squats. 480 with a light, no-stretch wrap in the warmup room was a god-awful grind. I made my squats by the virtue of excellent wrapping by Lamonster. I'm happy with my 5lb PR, but damn, if I had my legs under me, it would've been a huge day. I also wouldn't have been anywhere near 220 when I weighed in. Ah, well.
Made my bed, lying in it.

Had a heavy fückaround day. Went in to squat, hit some squats, had one of the training buddies lock his back up, and called it and went on to a shïtload of benching. Hit some PRs today, and also learned that my hips are super not ready to find out what my max wrapless squat is yet. I definitely overdid the wraps this last training cycle. 95% training max next time I go into a wrapped meet cycle will serve me well.
Skwat (high bar)
Work up work up
Switch low bar
Descent was under control until it wasn't. The bottom fell out on my ass and I just dropped to the basement.
Work up with wide grip Lilly Pauses
Work up comp grip
315x5 (beat training buddy by one rep)
225x21 PR +1 rep
One of the training buddies hit a new PR bench, 390 touch and go weighing ~180 or so. Just missed 400, stalled at lockout.
