Adam-F: Thanks man I am lucky to train in a great gym with amazing and dedicated lifters who are not above sharing their knowledge or their time, honestly it's the best thing that has ever happened to my training. Just curious did you hit the 200kg mark?
nlmain: I wholeheartedly agree. I want to be at least 2" taller sitting down than I am seated at present. Incredibly Spankable, yet ferociously powerful is my goal. I'll be stopping in to check on your awesome self on a regular basis, rest assured.
Nadia: Thank you for the kind words miss, the deadlift is the only lift I feel I have any real business giving advice at all in and I've always gotten great enjoyment out of helping others make gravity feel bad about itself in the most straightforward way possible. Good luck in your training I'll most likely be lurking about your log to watch that deadlift come up :).
mmatt: Thank you sir I am lucky enough to be in a gym where moving heavy fucking iron is business as usual and I hope to very soon be a proper product of my environment.
Banded squats with lights and whatever the other ones were
415X1X0 Highest miss I have ever had, didn't know I could miss a squat that high. Video up at some point. Bands really started to bite, and I liked the forcing me to build speed out of the hole, I should squat against them more.
Ass and hamstrings are still sore but I couldn't tell how beat up they were until I had already banded up but I called the day before any assistance work, I need to recover as much as possible before bench day Sunday. All in all a solid day.
Also playing with my hand placement on the bar, it seems like I can get more effective forward lean with a little wider of a hand placement on the bar which lets me good morning a little more effectively but seems to rob me of upper back tightness to some degree, not positive which one will let me shove out more weight yet. Just playing with my form to figure out exactly where my stance feels strongest for my smolov run at this point until I figure out when my next competition will be.
Did some box jumps when I got home to help burn off the last of my stupid heavy caffeine load from my pre-workout. Didn't check height but I forgot how much I love box jumps. Next time I will record the boxes as I go up and set a goal.
