Showed up at the gym at 7:30 to do a body day. Didn't realize the gym closed at 8. So I made it quick.
Sumo Deadlift/Pendlay Row (strict)
Chest Supported Row/Vogelpohl Row
Rear Delt Destroyer
Brutal. Good back day. Found a crew to work with in SC for the next two weeks. Should be great.Training log:

Heavy Pulls today! (With bumper plates and TPB)
480x2 PR ugly
405x8 TnG PR
GHR/Banded Rev Hyper/Unweighted Rev Hyper
And done. Bar was really stickin to my thighs again, I have all kinds of irritated skin. Lockout still suckin wind, so I went for the banded reverse hypers with a hold at the top. I'll upload 505 and you can see how rough it was for me to finish.

Thanks, guys. Here's the last pull. I rode that sucker out to the bitter end. I really do need to baby powder up.

Looked solid. I've found that just putting water on your thighs works decent enough when you don't have powder.

Baby powder up or squeeze your plump sausages into compression pants.

Pull looked pretty smooth man. Little bit of speed lost at the top, but still moved pretty quick.
I always dead with soccer socks and shorts. I hate when I have nothing blocking the direct bar/leg action.

I wonder if the chroming on my bar at home is what made me think bare legs were the best way to pull. No matter. I feel pretty good about pulling 505 on a power bar. I love that thing. Can't wait to get one in my shed ever since I bent mine.

I want power bar...

Crusing around on NAS last night. I'm thinking I wanna do some strongman between now and June.
03-09-2014, 09:51 PM
It's official. Training at the gym is not for me. It's made me softer, weaker, in worse shape, and hasn't given me the edge I have from training by myself at the shed in the heat/cold.
That and my ass being whooped by a couple flights of stairs this evening has told me all I need to know. It's time to break it all down, reassess, and come up with a new plan. I will be competing in the XPC semis this year, I just don't see myself qualifying with 1485 at 220 in June. I think I'll save my money that would be spent lifting at the end of this month and start working toward the Kumite Classic strongman event May 24 and competing there at 231, doing a PLing meet in the beginning of August and then getting that elite total in the XPC Finals.

You gotta do what's best for you man. I think strongman would be a good switch-up for you and something I'm looking to get into in the future.
Sucks we won't be competing together, but there's always another time, another meet.
Formulate a strong plan and get back to work.

On a related note, why aren't you training with Jimmie yet?
03-10-2014, 12:20 PM
No hard feelings bro!, I want to see you succeed more than anything.Originally Posted by herderdude
My buddies train with him, I'm not about the multi ply gear life. Honestly, I wish there were some no belt/no wraps/no sleeves divisions. That would be ideal for me.
There might be one out there, not enough IMO.

What I'm sayin is, dude can probably total 1800 in a jockstrap, it's not like they don't have anything to teach you out there, and it's not like they're gonna hold you down and stuff your ass in a squat suit. Just gotta poke your nose in there and tell them you wanna get stronger. That's all they're trying to do anyway.
Hell, you already train Westside, if there's any raw guy that could peacefully coexist with a bunch of equipped lifters, it's you.
And if you wanna compete without a belt, show up in the belted division and lift without one, a la Paul Carter and Jamie Lewis.
