I really liked the contraction I got with em with bands added to the spud pulley system. Now that I have some space to walk back further that’ll allow me to get a better lat stretch at the top which feels great. Gonna add those in during upper warmup days. Thanks for the reminder.

Pulldowns

This is a PR double for naked knees and all the numbers here look good but the day itself was off. I've had trouble with foot rooting in the new squat shoes and kicked them off at 505 and put on flats which changed my mechanics up a lot. Cut it high. Grinded. I'll switch back to the old squat shoes and regroup as I deload next week.

Lemme know if anyone wants to but some adidas squat shoes lol

What size?

I always had a hard time rooting (even more of a hard time than I do in flats, that is) in the 0.75” olys I have but was always curious if 0.6” would be better.

10.5

Hit me up on IG if that's your size.

I do like lower heels, and the reason for choosing Adidas, and for the wider toe box. My rooting issue with them is that my toes can't spread and grab correctly. My little toe hangs off the side. In my VS Athletics, its a HUGE toe box. They're good shoes. I'm just flat footed and wide.

I have the same issue with my didas and barely used em. Tiny ass tow box is like a fat guy in a little coat. Very wobbly for me.

Great hold and terrific speed. Time to deload and mentally prepare to peak!

Bro I got in my shed yesterday and suddenly about 8 wasps had taken up and built a big comb right over the door! Came back with wasp spray and buried those cock-a-roaches 🤬

You’re going over 300 Sean, no doubt!

I backed out of the meet. I only have a month to go but I'm currently in my hardest course in my degree program and am juggling a lot of life stress at the moment and need to consolidate my focus. Peaking and the emotional investment I place in it isn't a part of that focus.

This log is old as **** and I'm pretty sentimental towards it because it's shown a lot of my growth. I looked back the other day and saw my meet post in here when I squatted my first world record less than 3 weeks after my 2nd kid was born. That's pretty cool I think.

I don't foresee myself competing anytime soon since I graduate this Spring and after that, my focus will be on studying for the NCLEX and gaining employment. I'm going to follow John Meadow's training for the foreseeable future and likely won't log it on the forum.

If I decide to compete again, then I'll bump this thread back. Other than that, I'll still be in the threads.

I'll probably YOLO deadlift on Friday and I'll update yall then. I don't anticipate a squat or bench PR without a peak so I'm not even going to bother.
