    today i walked up to the squat rack, got warmed up, looked in the mirror and told myself

    'stop being a p.ussy and hit depth.'

    it worked.

    every rep of every set was good today. best session i've had in a month. i'm my own worst critic and even i can't see much wrong w the 335. bar path actually wasn't bad, knees were good and i kept my chest up. i thought about doing amrap,but decided not to. i don't want to overdo it and make a mistake. i'm 10 weeks out and don't want to get hurt so i'll prolly just keep doing the prescribed sets/reps.

    good day today...

    really? i stopped it at the bottom a couple times and it looked good, crease def below top of quads. christ, i'm gonna have to find some tape of worlds and take a look. if it's called that tight, i have even more work to do than i thought.

    Maybe set up a box a tiny bit lower just for a depth reference?

    If they are really strict it is better safe than sorry.

    I was working from an 11 1/2 inch box. That put me just below parallel. My depth troubles started when I took the box away.

    This is from the WPC rules. I'm damn close. I need to get ~1/2 inch lower to remove any doubt. If you stop mine at the bottom, I'm there or really close.

    Good call rodja...

    I think the Joe is about the oldest arena left. Will miss the bounces off the dashers there.

    Yeah, it's about time we play some more O6 teams. I say they take the dashers out of the Joe and put them in the new arena.

    Downtown D is gonna be a lot more fun (READ: SAFE) with everything within a mile of everything. No more treks into the ghetto...

    8/22 weak ass bench

    warmup
    internal/external rotations 50 total
    band pull aparts 3x15 - s.hit, first time i've done these...yikes!
    bar x 2 x 15
    95x2x5
    115x2x5
    135x5

    work
    210x5x3, here's the last:


    assistance
    face pulls 5x12 @ 75
    super set w v-bar pushdowns stack x 5 x 10

    thoughts
    not sure how many more linear weeks i have left in me, maybe 2, which would be triples w 220 for 4-5 sets. by wendler's formula that puts me at 241 in a couple weeks, which is 6 weeks from worlds. taking a week off, and a week for openers/maybe seconds leaves 4 weeks to do something with my bench. maybe program one month for 10 more pounds? i'd like to think i'd get 5 lbs from adrenaline, so that puts me right around 255ish.

    shoulders are ok, right labrum sucks but the joint help should be kicking back in here in a couple days.

    any way i add it up it comes to 1070-1080ish.

    8/23 deadlift
    warmup
    a crap load of stretching and rdl's w the bar x 5 minutes or so
    135x3x5
    205x2x5
    275x5

    work
    330x4x3, here's the last:

    felt a little twinge in my left lower back so i shut down the last set. i don't think it's anything, better safe than sorry. was a little quick on the last one, didn't get to where i wanted to be.

    assistance
    not a dam thing

    thoughts
    just like w my bench, i'm almost done w linear increases. i think i'm pretty close to 400, if not there. i might be able to squeeze 415-420 at worlds, maybe 425. i'm pretty happy being able to put together some semblance of a deadlift in about 3 months total. the only reason i'm able to do it is i never stopped training the squat. next week is deload week, i might just warmup and rip 360 or so off the floor. that would be my opener for 420, so i'll know a little more next week. something weird: i felt a little pulling in both my pecs the first set i did, a little uncomfortable. it went away fast so i just kept going. strange...

    a good week...

    Lol, I was busy all day yesterday and today and forgot!

    Blast has started. Twice my trt dose, the hell with high hematocrit and hemoglobin. I'll just take two aspirin instead of one...

    Squats today, deload week so you know what that means, no deload.

    Warmed up to 315x5x1, then went for 350, here it is:
    http://youtu.be/G5njgQODNNo

    Thoughts
    It appears I got down a little lower than last week, this one looks good. It's around what my opener will be, a true 85%. Bar speed was ok. Wanted a different camera angle, sorry for the junk close up.

    Prolly warm up the shoulders weds and go for 230ish.

    We'll see...
