My one problem with taking advice from Louie Simmons is that he works with equipped lifters. I think box squats and board press are great if you compete in a suit but not sure if the same applies without a suit. That’s my hesitation with his frequency of changing variations

Week 6 down, compared to 3:

Push press 1RM same, almost +10lbs
Paused low bar 5RM +20lbs (after watching the vid I didn’t really pause the first 2 reps, they were just really slow, will post it later)
Paused bench 3RM, same, half a rep away from +10lbs
Trap bar deadlift 1RM +30lbs (but only 10lbs more than last week’s triple)

Actually ran this week, thought I might have forgotten how to. Pretty happy with my time considering the heat and long break from running.

Progress is slowing a bit on max effort sets but I’m starting to feel a lot better on volume/dynamic effort work. And I’m not moving backwards which is always a good thing.

I think I figured out something with EMOM conventional deads, back didn’t bug me at all and on some of the reps I felt pretty explosive instead of just moving the weight from point A to point B. Gotta get the consistency down though!

Also did some kbell throws. I don’t know if throwing it or trying to ride my bike with it was harder

Thanks! Took 3 attempts but it was only my 2nd time doing the log so I’m pretty happy with it. Going to try to learn to push jerk it tomorrow to see if I can get the extra 10lbs needed for comp day
