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

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

Finally in. Dang this escalated quickly.

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
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

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.

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.

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.)

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 was leaning towards 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.

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