Getting ready for national masters in Milwaukee.
Man moving some great weights. Yesterday doing speed squats it was awesome. I got to 235 bar weight and did 2 sets of 2, then I added a chain to each side for another 2 sets of 2. The chains weigh 22 lbs each and holding rig is 5 lbs.
Then did another set of 2 with 2 chains on each side. Then a set of 2 with 3 chains. I went up to a set of 2 with 5 chains on each side. This is about 465 at the top and all done with no, I repeat No belt or any gear. Just sweats and my jock. Extra large jock I might add.
Heck Saturday did pulls with the weight on a block made of 2x8’s which puts the bar about 4 inches below the knees. I pulled a double with 475 and it went so well I went up to 505 and did a single. Well I might be old, but I am driven so I went to 525.
I fought and fought it up and locked it out. This was more than I have ever pulled from below the knees.
I will be the strongest man in the home.
