Called it there, elbow was flaring up because my biceps are tight as shit and everything felt like it was 500. Built 2 8" squat boxes to pull off of an to squat off up aswell as 1/2-3 boards. Need to figure out a way to keep my rack from flying in the air since it flies in the air with anything more that a light band

lol if you can do videos of that, why don’t you post some actual training videos? :stuck_out_tongue:

Cause they frown upon videoing at school, I’d just do it at home

Well that’s slightly ridiculous. You need a better gym.

Overall a good session, I’ll be switching to a conjugate system as I have found a steady group of guy that are fucking geniuses when it comes to training. I’ve also debated on becoming a client of jesse Burdick or Clint darden, One of the two for the 12-16 weeks before nationals

I’m starting to get stretch marks on my lats so I thought this was in order.

As the title says I’ll be working with Brandon Lilly up until nationals. I’ve felt beat up with sheiko training so I’ve decided to take my training to another level. I’m hoping that this will allow me to be able to learn how to program for myself and also to learn how to eat. I won’t be starting until sunday which I believe is going to be RE Deads

Defiantly harder doing it that it looks on paper. I need to work on pulling my shoulders back at the top of the deadlift. Keeping tightness in the hole is a major struggle and needs to be fixed considering how bad I felt going into this session it went extremely well.

Today was a brutally hard training session, It wasn’t the volume that was brutal it was the speed that it was done I was out within an hour with a massive tricep pump like I’ve never had before. The good thing about this session it showed a major weakness within my bench which is not using any leg drive.

This is more of a rant but Ill put it here anyways. We were talking about training and diet within class and the question was brought up was “when bulking why don’t people succeed” being my self I blurted out cause they’re a bunch of pussies and eat like a rabbit when they want to be a bear. I got a response from that “but what if they don’t want to get too fat” what are you That fuckin scared that you’ll lose your amazing six pack when your under 200lbs. Being under 200lbs and having a 6 pack is like a fat chick having big boobs it expected. I ended up leaving after this, to go train cause I was so pissed. That’s the rant for today

Hmm…I like this cubey method. Nice log. I’ve got a set of bands recently as a gift and am excited about trying some reverse band stuff. Reverse band paused high bar squats sounds like fun…right?

We pretty much only use reverse bands on DE Days. If you want to torture yourself set bands up like a bamboo bar its fucking terrible. Sets of 10 explode outta the bottom.
