I notice you like your incline presses with a lot of chain. What benefits do you see from it? Always enjoy your videos, man. Keep it up!

Nice, Chris. Those bottoms up KB presses look so difficult to juggle, haha. I think it's really something to have pressed 2 88lb KBs like that from that position.

Also, some serious squatting going on. 715x2 was nice, and still gj on the 760.

Real late and it pulled this page with a vid. Nice lifts man, how long did it take you to fix the groin? I slightly tweaked mine earlier tonight. Which was bs cus it was on 275 slow down fast up! Feel set. Warmed up really well and I felt it going up a slight pop in the knee felt a bit weird in my upper inner thigh.... Walked it off and went to 315 was able to do it just hurt. Suggestions?

Congrats on the anniversary! Also, that looked like a real nice trip.

Comments regarding your rant on training. You raised some good points there, and while I think you're still right I think there's something to be said about training similar qualities in differing sports, for instance powerlifting and strongman, or powerlifting and olympic lifting. I bring this up because 2 prominent athletes in powerlifting, Misha Koklyaev and Benedikt Magnusson, both are world class competitors in other fields as well (both are strongman, and Koklyaev boasts some very large clean and jerk and snatch numbers). I don't imagine they necessarily train for all their sports at the same time, so I don't think that goes against what you say, but I find it interesting how well they excel in the various sports they engage in.

I had PRP Treatment done this last week.
Full detail on training for the week here http://breakingmuscle.com/strength-sports/athlete-journal-chris-duffin-entry-65-circuit-training
And the video


Also had a member of the gym say he was going to do an Epic Kabuki Challenge called the "Walk In the Park".... He didn't meet the minimum time requirements of the challenge but came close. Only two people have actually ever done so. This is what the finish of the 6min (in his case) workout typically looks like

Have a question if you don't mind... What are your opinions on Brandon Lilly's Cube Method and his new 365 Strong? I just started reading the cube and will read the other next. I've never actually followed a power lifting routine before and was considering doing so, which is why I'm reading those right now to start with.

Thanks in advanced.

I have not read either. But I do feel that the advanced athlete doesn't need to hit maximal load on a weekly basis which I believe is the foundation to the cube. That concept has merit.

Could you explain a little more on this?

I don't have to work to do max effort squats or pulls every week to maintain or even progress. I really only seem to need to hit one heavy session once a month or even less to maintain and 1-2 times a month to progress. Now understand I get a significantly different training response from the weights I use than a 300lb squatter. A 300lb squatter, even though training at the same percentages may have to train 1-2 times a week to move forward. This is ONE reason why there is no secret magic program that works for everyone. You must asses and learn how your body responds which takes years in the gym sticking with one program at a time and following it through. Then over time you must learn what changes to makes as you body changes over time. A lot of programs are designed for lifters at the earlier stages of that continuum, the cube works for others at a different point. This is a very simplistic answer as there are a number of other variables but gives you some perspective.

Anything specific on how you arrived at a certain speed to be working at? I know Westside has a speed that they use on their days, but what it is and their reasoning escapes me.

I finished off the year with some heavy 665lb speed squats, which was a big jump from my training during the prior week. It was also my last week training at our old gym location before we move to our new facilities. A good way to wrap up the year!

Heavy-speed
BENCH 455x2x2x2x2
SSB SQUAT 655x2,2,2,2,2
