    New fuel pump ($475 just for the part), new thermostat, new rare ABS sensors, and new battery cable terminals.

    Stuff always has to happen right before the holidays.
    Jesus, what do you drive?

    Apparently the fuel pump is inside the gas tank. So my mechanic had to take the tank off, drain the gas, open it up, change the part, put the tank back together, and then replace the damn gas tank straps that broke lol.
    Yep, that's why I took mine to a shop to get it done. They always put them on the tank, and I didn't wanna take my trucks bed off and put it back on.

    Good thing too, since it wasn't the fuel pump.


    Was it even worth paying the 1100 instead of just getting a new car lol?

    Edit: New here meaning different

    Lol, that's how it happens sometimes. Although, since it's in good shape it definitely was worth keeping (when o think crown vic, I think Houston Crown Vic. Which is most certainly not worth 1100 in repairs).


    Mine has the occasional problem, but this was the only major one. (it's in good shape, especially for an '89)

  8. Finally in. Dang this escalated quickly.

  9. Subbed for the gains.

  10. So, went to the gym earlier today and got a pretty good Max OHP session in.



    Warmup: Band Pullaparts x a lot. Axle Press up to 100# x 8



    Work: 110 x 4, 130 x 4 (strict, easy) +push 170 x 4, 190 x 4, 200 x 1

    The 200 x 1 was a PR, and it was pretty easy itself. I went for another couple but let the weight get too far out in front of me.



    Single Arm DB OHP: 45 x 10, 50 x 10 x 2, 50 x 8

    Wanted to go heavier, but the gym only has up to 50 and then 65, 75, 85, etc. And 65 was a bit too much at that point.


    a1. Incline Bench: 135 x 7, 135 x 7 + 2 Partials, 135 x 6 + 3 partials. (moved the bench 1 peg closer to flat for the last set)
    a2. Six Ways: 10 x 8, 10 x 7, 10 x 6
    a3. Tricep Pushdown: Purlpe band x 15, x 20, x10 (varying technique slightly each set)

    Shoulders were smoked. Triceps too.


    b1. Meadows Row: 45 x 12 x 3
    b2. Rear Delt Raises: 15 x 20 x 3


    Strong pump.


    Went home and ate like a horse. Triceps started cramping when I went to take off my shirt for the shower.


    Training notes: Starting next week I intend to do the majority of the technique coaching before the workout (for my wifes friend that I've been training), rest periods will be shorter. Life will probably suck more.

    Basic Outline for rest will be similar to this:

    ME Movements: 3-5 minutes between sets (never less than 3, never more than 5)
    RE Movements: 90 - 120 seconds between sets
    DE Movements: 30-45 seconds between sets

    Assistance: 2-3 minutes between exercises, 30-45 seconds between sets

    Supersets: 30 seconds between exercises, 60-90 seconds between each superset

    Damn right.


    I'll do that tomorrow! (Nope)





    Also, supplement note. I added Endosurge Turbo in yesterday. I plan to finish my current bottle of AB, the ET, and Prime before starting anything else.

  15. 200lbs overhead is no joke! Especially with an axle, though I have never pressed one, I imagine it's a bitch. Did you clean the axle as well? I'm curious about the continental clean. Never tried one, and I've only ever cleaned more than 225 one time.

    I didn't this time, no.


    The last time I cleaned with the axle I got 170 or something and it was a bitch.

    Tru dat. I couldn't clean the log with more than 215, but I pressed 255 out of the rack. Dat atrocious clean form! But hey, if you can't clean it, how da fück are you gonna press it in competition?

    Cleaning the log is easy for me.


    Continental cleaning an axle is a bitch. I plan to attempt straight cleans with the axle next time I use it, but if I can't then I'll just get more continental clean practice.

  19. When I did the Kumite Classic powerlifting meet (equipped bench only bomb) I stopped out every chance I got. Watch the axle clean and press for a max, a few guys straight cleaned the opening weight. By round three, the one guy that kept doing it was getting oohs and aahs. He was tall as all hell and had some serious mitts on him, though.

    That's why I have the issue straight cleaning it, these tiny little hands....


    Nothing getting stronger can't fix.

  21. Did some rep squatting today. Nothing too ridiculous, it's still a little early to take it heavy on lower body lifts methinks.

    Pre: 1.5 Enhanced, Prime, Anabeta, Endosurge Turbo
    Intra: Amino IV

    All lifts done with Oly Shoes.



    Squat: 275 x 8 x 2

    Good Morning: 95 x 12 x 3

    a1. Walking Lunges: BW x 12 x 2
    a2. GHR Back Ext.: BW x 10 x 2

    That was it. Back is sore from yesterdays rowing (hooray for high rep back work). Triceps sore, shoulders feel stiff. Hips were a bit tight today, but that is to be expected a week after a meet. Besides that I feel fine.

    Next will be body day, DB bench, more rowing, calf work, and then I'll hit Quads/Biceps/Chest. Mostly volume stuff, might do some timed sets for some of the assistance (as opposed to rep ranges). Weight will mostly depend on how I feel Saturday. Also, I might be able to rearrange my training in a more advantageous way now, my buddy gave me a key to the gym today so I can go whenever I want, even if he isn't there. So, we'll see when I knuckle down Friday/Saturday and program the 7 weeks into the January Strongman Event (which I am still unsure whether I will be doing or not.)

  22. Texas Power Bar or a specialty bar?


    Idk what I want to get first, but the gym I train at has rogue oly bars, which are decent, but I prefer to use TPB.

    I say a Texas deadlift bar or the EFS Yoke bar. I'd say that the Yoke bar would be better than the deadlift bar, seeing as you're a strongman first, and won't need a bar with a ton of whip and grip for pulling.

    I was really leaning towards the cambered bar (if I got any specialty bar) lol. There's just so much you can do with it! (squat, GM, bench, OHP, etc.)

    Why would you choose that? (not arguing, just want to know what makes you pick that)

    It's the best overall bar to me.

    In that case, I vote power bar over cambered.

    Fair enough.

    Why did you vote the SSB over the Power Bar?


    I only wonder, because the cambered bar seems more similar to a yoke because of where the weight sits (and there are no handles) so I always assumed the cambered would have a little more carryover.

    Everything is easier for me with the 14" Cambered Bar, except for the stability. The SSB makes me it's bitch. I see more carryover to squat and deadlift with the SSB. Plus, the SSB is hard as crap for GM's because of how strong you have to maintain your upper back. GMs with the cambered bar are easy as hell because a lot of that is eliminated. Plus, if you have shoulder issues, the SSB is comfortable, whereas the 14" cambered bar sits how a straight bar would and is awkward to grip for some people.

    Anyway you would be able to give a test run of them somewhere?

    Nope.


    I used a SSB once back on Bragg. And I used a cambered about 5 months later when someone brought one to the gym.


    I can't remember which was harder (did squats and gms with both).
