  1. Hey thanks guy it is likely my best/only forte, but like Atomic Freddie Peterson says, (70 yrs Old and pulls #680 or something) it takes lots of hard work to get there and I think I have paid some dues over the years. Somedays I do feel I am doggin it but I have certainly brought up my work capacity over the months/years and W/O's to see what I am capable of and where I start to break down.

    Here is another guy I chase and is a secret hero of mine...

    I think he hit #804 under #200BW...!
    I have never seen anyone grinding out a rep like this guy^. Almost looks scary. Gotta wonder what his BPressure reading is at the top of some of those pulls.

    Benny #575 x22...

  5. Yeah, Benny is basically a fork lift.

    Wednesday 9/25

    15" Pin Pulls #565+#100 Chains x2x3
    2" Deficits from floor #545 x3
    #515 x3x2
    #500+#100 chains x1x2 (This last x1, wanted to stall at knees but I kept it moving and eked it out)
    1" Deficits #500x3
    1" Def #405x8

    Zerchers #225x2
    #315x1
    #365x1x2

    Bench Rows #180x10x4
    Bent Rows #220x8x4

    Shrugs #405x15x3



    Well the 15" pin pulls were slow up past the knees, but were all made, so I was happy. (When I did move to the floor, or actually the 2" defs. I was beat up and did not have a ton of power. The #545x3 was okay but slower than I wanted. I backed down then to the #515 and did a few singles with the #500 + chains to still get some rep work with weight up over #600.
    It has been 3-4 weeks now, so I gotta do some lower floor work perhaps next week and see where I stand. I could not get a feel today, since the x2's from the 15" pulls, really drained my power some.
    Passed on squats for a few zerchers.

    I wish I could say chains, deficits, bands, speeds ME's etc. etc, but I do think toro speaks the main #1 thing. Just being really determined and never never never never giving up on hard work. Pushing my body at times and then hoping it rebounds for the next session. I still have trouble pulling back when I should or hitting it harder, when I should. Pretty instinctive training. Chase someone, there ya go. I am actually somewhat small boned thin wrists and ankles. But I hate when people tell me I will never get there. Stay motivated or look for stuff that amps you. Make damn sure you are having fun, because when it gets to be work for me, my strength drops.
    Believe me, I have had my share of pains and strains and have been told by docs years ago to quit or "just keep it toned", but I seem to have a disease called, I am not enough (dangerous I know) and I am not very content for very long after a gain. The thrill IS in the chase for me. And it seems to just be chasing my own last PR. Myopic I know. But I just love getting real good and greasy beat up at this ****.

    I used to be a high rep (1 setx20's) guy and just used to love putting my ass on the floor for 5-10 minutes after every squat or dead W/O. I kinda started getting into heavier lower reps and MEish stuff over the last 5 or so years and have never looked back much.

    I think some numbers are pretty big roadblocks mentally. Once you hit them a few times they get easier to believe in.
    Deadlift voodoo, a friend of mine calls it.

    9 /30 Deload

    2" Deficit deads #365 x6x4

    Squats #275 x6x4

    15" RDL's Pins #315x12x2

    4" deficit pin pulls #315x8 (for ham stretch)

    Low Cable Rows #200 x12x4

    Static Holds #605>til grip gave out... x2



    Man, I do hate deloads with a passion. It's like I never feel much if any progress doing them at all and they suck and they don't even give coupons. Probably good 2day however, since I felt very flat today and almost weak & low energy. Crappy day a t work too.
    Deloads are like missing an orgasm, or getting pizza with someone who only likes cheese and nothing else on it. Or someone invites you over for a turkey dinner and they put apples, peaches walnuts and raisins in their stuffing, but don't make turkey gravy or mashed potatoes. DELOADS Whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaa.............!

  18. I'm thinking of approaching deloads a little differently this time around.

    As my programming has me doing exclusively bilateral barbell lifts throughout my training cycle (so far), I think when I hit a deload I'll do a week of unilateral work for lower body and dumbbell work for upper body, and just push reps out to keep it both challenging and enjoyable while still giving my CNS a break.

    Before I really had to take a full deload every so often because my joints would feel trashed and/or I'd start developing tendonitis, but my shoulders have been feeling pretty healthy, as have my hips and knees, so I think I can get away with this for now.

  19. Yeah you may be onto something. I deload by instinct first off, since I might have a scheduled DLod but feel really strong that day and want to kill it, so I don;t deload. When I start feeling really flat, then I talk myself into pulling back. I might just do a completely different thing like all assistance or just whacking the ****zen out of hypers, GHR's, pull throughs and try a route like that.

    All I know is, I do not like deloads.

  21. Ha hungry eh??? I made hot wings on my Weber yesterday and enough so I would have some leftover for my lunch. Guess what???

Wow, I didn't think of any of my friends while I was eating...!

I was so sore, I dropped my wallet, then told a homeless man, he could have the $75.00 in it, it if bent down and got it for me. Haaa buddda bing....!

  22. Haha I haven't seen Slingblade in ages
