    Tomorrow lol? OK. The first thing I have to do tomorrow (which I almost forgot about) is go back to the place I got the uhaul earlier today and get my phone out of it lol...


    It isn't that high, I've gone higher before (in a stone run too).

    Lolz, I need Dimitar's press.


    I'm surprised you had such a hard time pressing that weight, it looked so easy coming off the ground and to the rack. Methinks you need to work with your technique, the strength is there, you just need to figure out how to get it all to work in your favor.

    Because, let's be honest here, you are stronger than me. So the only reason I out press you now, is technique. I get a lot out of my leg drive, even without a double dip or split jerk (something like 80#).

    Wait till I post the 213 fail, 10lbs more and it killed me. You're definitely right that my technique sucks, so little experience on these lifts shows.

    Planning to put words in silver paint in the black stripe. (even considered putting them in Icelandic, because Viking). Obviously needing some more equipment, and should have a flat bench coming in tomorrow. But, for now, we can train.

    Yeah, the paint looks good. It looks better when the sun is still out too, it gets dark in there fast though because there is only one ****ty lightbulb (something I might have to rectify).


    I have 3 bars lol, 1 TPB, 1 log, and the SSB. Planning to get another TPB soon too, but it isn't the first thing on my list.


    Right now it's:

    Dumbbell Handles
    Yoke
    Farmers
    TPB
    Cambered Bar
    Swiss Bar
    etc.


    I might be building that stone platform next weekend, it depends on how much the lumber costs, and how lazy I feel....

  9. Honestly one of the best gyms I've ever trained in was a dimly lit bare bones powerlifting gym. No worries on the lighting

    Good point.


    I don't wanna do that anyway.

  11. Got a pretty good workout in this morning, will update later when I get home.

  12. 4-28-14 ME Upper


    Push Press: 185 x 3, 190 x 3, 195 x 3


    Had originally planned to do strict press, and as I was warming up I decided I was feeling good and wanted to push my luck a little. Didn't have any pain doing these (which is a good sign), but there was still some instability (which you'll see in the video).

    WG Strict OHP: 105 x 5, 115 x 5, 120 x 5 x 2, 120 x 4

    Pull-Ups: BW x 9, 8, 8

    a1. Rear Delt Pullapart: Red x 40, x 35
    a2. Tri. Pushdown: Purple x 25 x 4

    That pump was absolutely ridiculous.

    Meadows Rows: 50 x 15, 60 x 15 x 2

    Actually had some discomfort doing these. Wasn't pain really, more like tightness when I was doing them.





    And, I wanna know what you guys think about these:

    http://www.flexcart.com/members/elit...****212&p****141


    Are they gonna be good or is there something better I should get as far as these go? I plan to also get one kroc row handle (although, probably not that actual one) for heavy ass rows, and want these for basically everything else that I want to use DBs for (benches, OHP, raises, weighted lunges, etc.)

  13. Link no worky

  14. Finally got to see some pictures of the setup. It brings a tear to my eye. I wouldn't have thought to paint that black stripe, but it looks good. Nice training today, too. Good to see the injury isn't hanging around.

  17. Keep in mind with the Olympic handle the size of the plates you'll need to use. Unless you have a lot of 5/10lb plates....

    I bought a ton of tens for exactly this reason lol. (and for when I get a circus DB)

    I've also considered using 25s.

  19. Then you should be good.

    I figure it will be really useful for my wife with bench and maybe OHP.


    Plus, it should have a lot of carryover with rows for my log clean.

  24. So, I'm definitely not able to squat/deadlift yet. I tried to show my wife what I was talking about yesterday with the SSB squats and it hurt a lot. So, it's not as good as I wish it was yet. Bleh.



    Did RE Upper today though and didn't have any pain (can't do bent over rows yet though)


    Inc. Bench: 185 x 4, 175 x 5 x 3, 175 x 4

    CG Bench: 185 x 10 x 2, 185 x 7

    Seated Band Row: Purple x 6 x 5

    a1. Bradford Press: 95 x 8, 95 x 7.5, 95 x 7
    a2. Stretch Pushups: BW x 20, BW x 18, BW x 12

    Poundstone Curls: Bar x 60
