Squats work up to heavy single RPE 9
Metal Ace Briefs
Add Ace Suit straps down
5 and a quarter
6 plus a quarter
7 plus 2 10s
That’s 730 pounds using the 60lb bar. Work sets were 690 and 730.
Belt Squats box squat style work up to a hard 5
1 plate, 2 plates, 3 plates, you get the picture, up to 5 plates per side
Leg press 100 + 1 plate per side 3 x 15, 100 + 2 plates per side 2x 15
Abs and done.
Long night, squats felt good, could work depth a bit better on that 730 but FYFM it’s a PR. Technically they both were. Also my shirt says “It’s easier to squat deep than it is to squat heavy”
Bar 3 x 5
95 3 x 5
135 1 x 3, 1 x 1
185 x 1
225 x 1
275 air boards
405, about a 2 board
435 about a 1 board
455 about a 1 board
5x1 at 85%
385 nearly touched the last set
Played around with how far I twist the arms. Decided I’m going back to ground level and doing straight arms in and higher collar. I’m not quite ready for super jacking the shirt AND touching. Maybe when my arms can handle 500+
The extra 10lbs of training weight has made things better in some departments and worse in others.
Kept rest periods short the rest of the night
Close Grip Bench
135 x 5
185 x 5
205 3 x 5
Speed squats cambered bar + 8 chains 40% or so
Loose briefs ( though im getting fatter so they aren’t so loose anymore, lol just not as strong as my ace )
Add Suit straps down
585 really easy, didn’t put too much effort into it
615, flew up off the ground then slipped right out of my hand at lockout
615 questionably locked out
635 miss, out of position and just not strong enough.
My grip wasn’t strong enough but I’ve got a plan to fix it ( mostly revolves around massages to unfuck myself )
SSB good mornings 3x5 at 205
Standing Hamstring curls 3x12 25lbs
GHR with 10lbs behind the head 3x5 ( drop the weight and do 3-5 more )
It’s funny, it’s never my right hand that goes, I always peel my left open on my leg.
Still working on hook grip, just don’t quite have my right hand set how it should be. Work in progress.
Also I’ll probably do some grip specific shit after this meet along with a specific arms program. I need to grow these forearms and triceps. The blonde that runs the mono and holds my boards in my videos has arms only 1.5 inch smaller than mine. sigh
My left goes from holding workpieces together to fix, my right goes from the drill and driver. That or moving boards for long periods. Last Monday I cut big arse boards all day and then had to wrap my knees. Both hands kept clawing up while I ate dinner.
