Sumo Pulls Heavy (relatively) today! Tough.
455x2 +1 conventional
Deficit (45lb plate)
315x12 (fück that)
And done. Took too long today. Gonna have to skip the gym for a few weeks, not enough pace to my sessions of late.

You mean the actual gym I assume?
And nice session ma man. Solid work

Thanks guys. I'm not even close to where I was a couple months ago on sumo. Don't know if I'm out of rhythm or not mobile enough to be in a good position to pull, or weak where I need to be. Conventional pulls were surprisingly stong.
I'm going to keep conventional deficits of 3/4-1.5" in to keep in practice for conventional pulling and hopefully get better off of the floor.
Lats were crushed by all this pulling. Weird. Also, lockout sucked from those KB swings. Might have to keep them in and program them better to have stronger lockout/glutes.

Lot of pulling there Herd. I was wondering how that much volume was going to treat you and then I saw the 550 for a huge PR.
I'll take notes when programming my next run at conjugate.

I can walk away from convo for a couple months, come back and be in the area code of my weights when I quit.
Even if mobile enough to pull, if I quit sumo for more than a couple weeks, the poundages straight plummet. So technical, it demands full attention if one commits to that style.
IMHO of course.
Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

No doubt. When my sumo form is correct, 95% of my sumo 1RM looks like a speed rep. I definitely can't grind with a heavy weight sumo, I don't have the muscle in the right places for it. Yesterday, I could muscle the bar off of the floor, then was in a horrible position to lock out. I'm trying to train what I'm not good at to be more well rounded, and when it gets to meet prep time, get more specific. Not 100% worried about the carryover of my bad lifts, just trying to get better at them.

185x3 well damn
135x10 +3 push press
DB Incline (45 degree)
100x3x8 left maybe 1 rep in the tank on the first two sets, no reps in the tank on set 3.
Definitely harder to do pin presses with the bar 1" off of the chest as opposed to how I did them last cycle, which was with the bar sunken into my chest. I have very limited pin selection at the shed, so I just went with it. For the next 6 months, I will do whatever I have to do (I'm thinking deadlift mats under the bench) to make my pin presses 1"off the chest. Also focusing on keeping the elbows in for all reps until I can't. I must get more push off of my chest with the elbows in or I'll never be able to get a new max off of my chest to get it thrown back toward my head where I'm strong.
Done. Good-ish day. Doing OHP before inclines is a real challenge, I might do inclines first and then OHP on my second pressing day in the future to train where I need the work before I train where I'm already adequate in my bench press. Having a good amount of time before my next meet really opens the door to experimentation, which I love.

Fück that. Tried to work my stance wider, but I wasn't hitting depth. Brutal to do without a belt or wraps and In my "wrong" shoes.
SSB Front Squats
Weird, yet nice on the old shouldies.
SSB Pause Squats (2s)
Toe Elevated SSB Spud Suspended GMs
Pull ups (3 grips, easier grip as I went)
BWx 6,3, 8,5, 8,3
Annihilated. One of the hardest sessions I've had in awhile. Had to be talked into the third set of 8 on squats.

Brutal! I love that ****.
SSB Front Squat?
