    I don't know how much I'm even gonna compete this year, I figure probably this January NAS show and TX Strongest in April, and then NAS Nats (if I qualify) but outside of that I figure I'll just train and go into 2015 as a more competitive <231 strongman (I figure I want to weigh 220 by 2015).

    You don't have to qualify for the APF nats, it was the first meet I did last year. I hadn't did a meet in 18 months before nats because of shoulder surgery.

    Top 3 in each wt/age class at nats qualify for worlds.

    I just sent my entry fee, that was it...

    Fact.


    I've seen snow here once, and it wasn't even enough to put a light coat on the grass and they still let schools out early.

    Deadlift

    Warmup - rolled and mashed everything w the stick. Stretched, more rolling and mashing

    Bar x 1k
    135x6x3
    185x2x5
    225x2x3

    Work
    245x3
    275x3
    315x3
    Singles 335, 350, 360

    Assistance
    Snatch grip deads (index finger on the rings)
    225x5x3

    Pendlay's
    165x5x3

    Thoughts
    First day at db, got there there was one other dude there and it was like 30 degrees inside. Fcking cold, like hard to get loose cold. Sure enough, by the time I finished it warmed up. Others dude showed up and were floor pressing w chains, and another crew deadlifted when I finished.

    Introduced myself to everyone, JJ brought his dog, wife and 4 yr old. Achilles felt ok as long as I kept it stretched out. I think that'll be the norm going forward. Going tomorrow and do some light squatting. I guess there will be a crew doing back.

    Just trying to get to know everyone at this point. Oh yeah, there's a kegerator against the wall...

    Solid session man. Deads and rows always for the win. Is this a 5/3/1 setup with joker sets?

    Thanks, I do a 351, it's one of wendlers variations. I just tossed some singles on at the end to test the Achilles. I've always done pendlay's for assistance, and judging by how my traps feel, the snatch grips are going to stay too.

    Txs bro keeping it stretched is going to be the key. It still pulls some times but that's scar tissue that I have to break up...

    To the left of that dude are the 3 benches, to the right is a platform w band attachments and there's another platform against the far wall under the board. It's pretty small.

    My goal is to somehow get on the board...
