Great thread title. Have you ever noticed that for the most part large, strong, muscular people are not the victims of most crimes like mugging, robbery, murder and such. Hmm…I wonder why.

"Nice work. Good to see someone who isn’t going gently into that good night.

Keep kicking ass and taking names! "

Will do. Keep up the good work with that great bunch of lifters you have.

A plea was made at Rotary club lunch last week for the club to send a 12 man team to pull an airplane in a charity event. Not enough guys were agreeable, only me and a 40 something lifting pharmacist. Missed my chance.

Happy belated birthday!

2bd was normally standard grip. went close grip to have some fun. played around with weights. should’ve gone @ 225 for all 3. will know next time. had bencher (mark hauschildt) watch my bench reps. my form has definitely improved as my shoulders have gotten healthy.

meet with teammate (coach) next sunday to address squat. will hold off DL for now, or at least go light. have a hunch my education will help my pull, too.

Late but a happy 53 to you. Good to see your bench is doing well and your shoulders are healthy.

HMB rep came in. He’s located in the area. He brought shorts, t-shirts and supps. They may to sponsor some, or get behind the entire gym, since we are local.

Came home, ate and went back in couple hours later to meet with squat whisperer. I am out from under a bar for the time being. I have ankle mobility issues and need to work on glute activation. I also have tight thoracic spine.
Did BW squats and BW squats with elevated heels.

For the time being. Will goblet squat 2x/week. Can go back under bar when can hit 5x10 w/60# to depth for all reps. Will be wearing my oly shoes until mobility improves. Will also be doing SLDL w/DBs along with goblet squats. Have list of mobility movements to do.

Very interesting to read about. What, exactly, was wrong with your squat? And maybe you can explain the elevated heels? I regularly see people squatting with heels on small plates but have never really understood it.

met with teammate couple weeks ago. am doing bodyweight to barbell to get back into squatting correctly. have to goblet squat 5x10 w/60lb kettlebell and hit depth with no form breakdown. then will proceed to front squats, then to back squats.

I have some ankle flexibility issues, along with some hip bullshit. A PT is moving from Cincinnati to DSM. She’s an equipped lifter. will be joining us. Will seek her out for activation work.

goblet squats. woohoo

had 3 lifters lifting at nationals in PA. Think it was USPA.

Had couple more lifting at meeting in Kansas City. It was their 1st meet. No one bombed, no one injured, and everyone lived.

Thompson fat pad showed up at our gym. Will need to redrill holes. It’s made to fit a Rogue bench but doesn’t want to play nice with our EFS bench. We’ll make it conform.
