Hedlesky's Die... or Get Strong Trying Log

I dont care what anyone says. I got an 810 deadlift. 5 weeks out from the next one so here we go:

Sunday- 3-13-11- DE Lower

Squats- Blue+330x12x2 in 9:20
DLs- 380+minisx12x1 in 6mins or something

Mobility-
Ankle wedgesx2mins each leg
Couch Stretchx2mins each leg

Had a lot more planned but I drank about 60 beers yesterday so I just got the main stuff done. Only 4 hard weeks of training before my first full meet I’ve done in a very long time. So, I should probably only drink 50 beers next time because I have a lot of work to do.

Monday-3-14-11- RE Day

10mins of foam rolling
5mins of rib mobilizations

Squats-115lbsx5x10
Dimel DL’s-225x4x25

Tabata-
95lb Snatches
15 BW Squats

Mobility-
Glute/Ham/IT opener-2mins each leg
Heel Chord Unglue-5mins each leg<~~~ probably the most painful thing I hgave ever done
Medial Chain Opener- BB- 2mins each leg
Static Hamstring stretched

Done. More/cooler stuff tomrrow.

810lb DL ?

Damn nice Pull.

(Jealous !)

shit, no more p90x? ah well, you gave those ripped abz a good run.

Saw the video, the judge buttfucked you on that.

I look forward to seeing you blow 830 out of the water.

I agree with Dixies, that was a legit 810. Will be following and learning some things about getting stronger.

I agree with all of you. I got fucked. The more people I talk to about it and the more input I get has made me realize this. Oh well, it happened. I got it but didnt get credit just because some old wiener juge had a hand seizure. I don’t give a shit. I do give a shit about the 830 pull I will got for in a couple weeks. Thanks for the input though, it just makes the lift not counting even more ridiculous.

Stretched and did some light mobility stuff like tricep tack downs on a bar. I have all kinds of nasty stuff built up in there.

Eh, you totally hitched that deadlift…

Just kidding. I don’t get it either… Even if, say, the bar moved back down a milimeter or two… The decision just seems idiotic.

So. Can you curl more than my wife by now, or are you still struggling with that?
I hear bigger bis may make the judge like you better or something.

Glad you are posting again STB. I like your blog as well. Just wanted to let you know I did my first powerlifting meet this past weekend. I was happy with how I did and I have you to thank a lot for helping me with my training.

It was a USAPL meet and I lifted raw. I went 6/9 hitting my first two of all attempts

@220: 539 squat (14lb PR), 375 Bench (10 lb paused PR), and 639 dead (4 lb PR, barely missed 655 for the state record).

I know I am capable of much more but I had a great time and am ready to break some records next year.

More fucking awesome than I could ever describe. Learned a lot and had every question answered that I had about conjugate training and applying these methods to sports training.

Thursday- ME Lower

Dont feel like typing today.

Raw rev. Band Squat- took 180 off out of the hole. Worked up to an easy 770. 800 came up to far in front of me because I lost some tightness in my upper back so I ditched it.

Friday- Speed Bench

Benched fast. 12 sets of 3 with a fat bar+80lbs of chain+185 bar weight in 5.49.

Gaining weight is awesome. Was 276 this morning and I feel like a million bucks. Excited to get the equipment on next week.
