    Yep, but different venue than last time. It won't be a sauna up in there again.

    Where and when? I might see if I can't make it out there.

    August 2. I think it's the Marriott by Hobby Airport.

  6. Question for those still following (and get some others to chime in as well if possible):

    I've been thinking more and more about getting a pair of Oly shoes for squats after this meet. I've literally used them twice in my life and once was while I was hungover, so my experience is very limited. Which ones would you recommend and why? Also, add how they're sized.

  7. I like my VS Athletic's. The fabric just isn't super durable but I stitched it up myself.

    I didn't feel much of a floor connection in terms of transferring torque with the Nike's. Maybe because I'm flat footed and didn't contour well.

    I know two guys that love the Rogue Do-wins. One's a 600+ squatter and has had them years.

    I've tried on someone's Risto's and they were very comfortable. You can call the guy that makes them and he will size you perfectly. Plus it had a sick wood heel.

    IMO, they're all sized like normal shoes.

    I'm flat-footed as well so that helps immensely.

  9. 7/18

    Bench (56 Ace shirt)
    405x2
    435x2 (2-board on 1st rep, 1-board on 2nd rep)
    455x1 (1-board, but couldn't touch)
    455 FAIL
    Switched to my 54 shirt
    455x1 (1-board)

    Meadows Row
    90x15x3

    Rolling DB Ex/BB Curls
    35x10x2/85x10x2

    Facepulls
    70x15x2

    Today sucked..just flat out sucked. The final set was slow as molasses and I could barely lock it out. My shirt is too snug and the other shirt is too big. I can literally slide right in and out of the sleeves and if I jack the chest and sleeves to where it's finally tight, I couldn't even touch a 1-board. This training cycle has been ****. There's no other way to put it.

  10. 7/20

    Squat
    Worked up to opener (~633) and did it for two singles

    Walking DB Lunges
    40x20x2

    Standing Cable Crunches/DB Shrugs 120x15x2/90x15x2

    Unilateral Hypers BWx15x2

    I felt pretty good on this day. The plan was to do my opener once, but there was a communication error on calling my depth and I did it again. All my assistance work was light and easy with the intention of bloodflow to the areas. I'll upload the vid later.

    Also, I was treated to a nice pair of AdiPower shoes courtesy of my grandma. I'll be implementing these after the meet during my extended raw phase.

  11. Nice work man. I'm interested to see how you will like the adipowers

    Also, I hope the lunges 40x20x20 is a typo. I would die doing 20 reps 20 times.

    Rodja is a sick **** if it was 20 sets.

  13. That would be a typo. 20x20 on walking DB lunges would have me in the hospital.

    I'm excited to actually give Oly shoes a real shot. I can't exclusively squat and pull with a wide stance while raw or my hips will be shot within a month. I'll still throw the box with a wide stance into the rotation, but I want to really work on my Oly-style squats.

  14. In for more AdiPower love. What color did you grab?

  16. 7/22

    OHP
    165x3x5

    HS Unilateral Row (neutral grip)
    180x3x10

    Tate Press/Cambered Curls
    35x2x15/85x2x15

    Facepulls/Side Laterals
    70x2x15/30x2x15

    I needed to get back to doing some heavier OHP so I don't completely lose the feeling of heavier weights. Each set was nowhere near failure or a grind and the groove was good. Doing some light lat work prior to OHP has really helped to boost my numbers here.

    However, on a down note: I won't be able to do the meet primarily do to finances. I didn't factor in the cost of food, gas, and hotel into it (I usually stay with my grandma, but she'll be out of town). I'm bummed, but I have much more important things on my plate at the moment than a powerlifting meet. Mark my words, though, I'm by no means going to stop powerlifting.

    I'm going to do it soon. I want to take a deload for the next two weeks and then go smash a DL and squat PR.

  23. Need to buy some ammonia caps for this. I like Tork for training, but still prefer the caps.

    Really? Why caps? Nothing says PR time to me like a fresh bottle of Tork, the feeling like someone shoved a fountain pen up my nose, the tears, all of it.

    I like the two week deload. No love for the bench in a couple weeks?

    Fresh Tork is almost too much. It's like being over stimmed for a moment. I'll have to see what comes the next few weeks on the shoulder before I say yay or nay on bench.
