    I did not do box jumps because whom ever mopped the floor decided to use way too much water and the floor was very slick, I busted my knees doing calf raises so I decided against doing the jumps. Jas, thanks bro, I felt great doing 355 it went up real easy. Well time to eat and prepare for the Iron Maiden concert tonight, oh yeah thats right IRON FING MAIDEN.

    Felt great today. Taking it easy for the rest of the day because of heavy box squats tomorrow. Been trying a different post workout shake: 1.5 cups skim milk, 1.5 scoops whey, 10g Glutamine, 3 scoops oats, 1 scoop dextrose, 2 eggs, not bad actually.

    Pumped about getting 520 on the box squat. I hold the bar very high up and my traps and it is comfortable for me. I was wondering about the lower placement of the bar in a powerlifting style hold, and if I would be able to put up more weight with a switch. If anyone has switched forms and I would appreciate any comments regarding it. Today was going to be a beach day, but it is raining so I will do some boxing and footwork tonight.

  5. That's one hell of a box squat! How tall was the box and did you use a belt or wraps?

    I switched from highbar to lowbar at one point. I use a fairly wide stance, and it helped me quite a bit to stay in the groove by reducing downward torque.

  6. Thanks again for the comments Jas, I used a belt, rather skinny one though I believe only 4 inch width in the back. I do not use wraps and never have. No one around me uses them so I never really got into them although I have heard they really help keep everything in tight in the knee. The box got me to a little bit below parallel, I maybe 18" to 20", I could be wrong though on the numbers. The squat felt good only thing that held me back a little was after coming up about 3"-4" from the box my weight shifted forward just a little, that is why I feel a lower bar placement may help me. My stance is a little bit narrow as well, I will work on getting it a little wider. I have never really done any traditional powerlifting so I am still working on my form is some aspects.

  7. If you aren't powerlifting and don't have knee trouble, I don't think I would use wraps ever. My knees just bother me. I forgot that you're way below parallel guy on squat. Maybe that's why you just box squatted more than you regular squatted (as I recall)? It seems like you're parrallel squat should be 550+.

    Anyway, you're a better squatter than I am so keep doing what's working for you.

    Thanks jas, I'm gonna try to get a big parallel squat soon. Today was great day, I'm feeling real good and was full of energy eventhough I only got about 4 hours of sleep last night. Oh yeah, some old B!@TCH yelled at me during rack press. It was on my 335 set, she said, and I quote, "Do you think you have too much weight, you are making an awful lot of noise." Of course my inner meathead came out and I said, "I'm sorry if the weights are too loud, but I'm just getting started." Ok enough of that, I hate old women.

    Awesome day today, hit some big numbers on box squat, hips a sore but thats from the running, some good stretching and rest tomorrow will fix things up. I was able to get some videos up, check next thread.

  11. 530lbs.

    Sorry it takes so long to get to the lift, next time I'll fix that. But anyways both are new PRs for me, done today 6-20-08.

    Thanks alex, I felt good on the squats, had to put a good amount of effort into 540 so I didn't go up at all, today on floor press 405 went up easy, I only rested about 60 seconds with 415 and had nothing left. I'm gonna try to get a weight tomorrow, feeling very lean and full, today was the last day of my anabolic pump though . I'm considering trying the neovar recomped with kwick karb as I haven't had any creatine in my system for atleast a month now. Well time to rest and recover for the week ahead.

    Good day today, legs are still pumped. Weighed in today at 219 and looking the leanest I've been all summer. Tomorrow is an off day, will probably do some hill running if the weather is nice.

  15. Nice fight on 540. That was excellent! I never feel comfortable when it slows down that much. I think in one of my earlier posts I thought you were pausing on the box so if my statement made no sense, that's why.

    5'10'' 219 with sub-10% BF is very impressive.

    Overall good day today, felt good to go a little higher rep on inclines. Tonight I will be going to an MMA gym for some cardio, should be awesome. Thanks jas, I was pumped for the PR and to get it on video just makes it that much more fullfilling, just to show I'm not just some punk 150lbs kid with a keyboard. I wasn't pausing on those, but for my speed box squat I pause then explode up. Ok time for a little relaxing and then off to do my cardio. :bruce2:

    Good day today, whenever I get heavy on trap bar the bar will slide forward or backwards and stop the lift, but it feels good, more like a squat to me. 545 was pretty easy, but I didn't want to go up anymore because of practice afterwards. MMA class last night was great, I don't know much about any of the form of anything, so it was nice to start to learn, but the cardio was the best I've ever done. The 5 min round bursts are great, and I feel will really help with football, as the drives are roughly 2-5 min bursts with some rest in between.

  18. Ok I decided to take a few extra days of rest as my schedule was really hectic, but now back to the normally scheduled pragraming.

  19. Wait, is that a strict standing military press or are you using any leg like a push press?

    Not saying I don't believe you, 260 would be just amazing, though.

    I've got to see that, if it's a true standing military press. That is nasty.

  21. At one point I could do 235 I think, and I thought I was killing it. That was with a 365#+ incline too.

  22. Hateful, I wouldn't put too much stock in Alex's numbers. He's basically just a "studio lifter".

    Thanks for the comments bros, 250 on standing military was strict, 260 I used a slight dip in the legs, forgot to post that did not mean to decieve, my body did it naturally as I used to to do power press alot. My grip is fairly narrow, atleast 1" narrower than my bench grip. I will try to get some video up next week of the lift so my form can get critiqued. I know some of those "studio lifters", they like to use those styrofoam weights that look heavy... ... just kidding Alex. Okay time for boxing cardio tonight, should be about 45 minutes.

    Gym was closed today so I decided it was a good day to switch things up and do some strongman. Overall good day, now if I can keep my fattness to a minimum today I'll be happy. Happy 4th of July to all us Americans and no hard feelings to all the Brits, .

    I was sure to be very strict with my form on military press today, I did not dip at all, I was not able to get any video today as no one was in the gym . My form was as follows, take the bar off the rack with bar resting on chest head slightly forward, from that position I pause breathe and then drove the bar upwards without using legs, but I did feel like my upper body tensed and almost exploded the bar up. So I am still not sure if I am doing these right. Hopefully I can get some video next week, maybe I'll get my brother to lift with me. All else is good, diet got a little off this weekend and I am holding a little water from all the sodium and such. That should all drain out this week with my cardio sessions. Tonight I am just resting but tomorrow is dynamic lower and probably some sprints after work.

  26. Damn, a 265 standing mil is insane. I'm pretty much the top dog on these in my area so I thought I was good, and you just destroyed me. Nice work. What's your best push press / push jerk / split jerk (whichever one you do for explosive overheads)?

    Thanks jas, I still might not be doing perfect form on the heavy sets, I hope I am though. Haven't done push press in a while but my best as of recent is 275x5. I forgot my lunch today so all I've had is oatmeal, protein shakes, craisins, and cashews all day, but only a lot of them so now I'm gonna be in for a treat later...

    Had practice tonight so no more cardio til saturday, max effort lower tomorrow, thinking about doing heavy front squats.

    DB SLDL 4x8 100/100/100/120
    Med ball twist 4x15 superset standing calves 4x15 continuous
    100 yard sprintx2

    Front squats felt good, it has been a while since I've done them heavy, gonna really go for it on them next week, I didn't have a spotter this time so my mind set was off. Feeling it in my legs today pretty good, I have noticed that alot of times whenever I lift and then run, even only a little, my groin is very sore and I have a slight limp for half the day til it gets better, have been getting this on and off for sometime now. So I am going to begin an intensive stretching routine every night just incase. Well thats it for today, gonna go to a Japanese steak house so look out :bruce3:

  30. 365 is pretty good. You seem to have good quad strength since you squat with a close stance so I bet you can go up to 405 with a little work. A lot of front squats is just getting comfortable with the holding position. Do you hold it like you would catching a clean, or crossed arm style?

    BTW, how old are you HO?
