Notes

  • PRs all across the board today, if anything, this program has driven my tricep strength up tremendously
  • Paused and Overall PR with 295lbs and even tho I fucked up and forgot to pause the 315lbs, it is still a Huge PR. Before this my 1RM for close grip was 275lbs T&G.
  • Because of all the working sets for the main lift, I really crushed my back with the supplemental rows, felt really good. Dropped the pauses for the volume sets, to get some extra work in.
  • BB Style assistance set, really driving in the incline work to try to get a bigger upper chest in order to create a larger rack(Big Tits=Bigger Pressing)

Video:

Notes

  • All reps performed beltless, threw some straps on for the last set. Mentioned this in the video description, but I messed up my set up for my final set. Knees were do far forward, so when I initiated the pull my body went back(To its optimal position) and the bar stayed forward causing some back rounding.
  • Despite the less than optimal rep, I was still able to complete it with a pause and my spine didnt shoot out my ass so that was also good.
  • Ab rollouts continue to kill me, but im improving week to week.
  • Decided to do the high rep front squats for shits and gigs, just to see if I could do it. Good prep work for the 10min squat challenge.

#289

Lookimg good in here sir. Any future competing plans?


#290

Thanks @littlelee . Yeah, I plan on competing the second week of August.

Events:

  1. Viking Press
  2. Deadlift
  3. Stein Hold
  4. Frame Carry
  5. Odd Object Load(Most likely an Anvil)

#291

Sounds cool! Small linguistic question: why is it Stein hold instead of stone hold?


#292

weil du einen Bierkrug(Stein) vor dir hältst.

Sorry if I botched that, haven’t been practicing.


#293

No that was very good!
Never heard some call a Bierkrug a Stein before but I know that event, haha.


#294

Haha Thank you, glad I haven’t lost my touch.

Yeah, everyone I know here calls any sort of mug that holds beer a Stein.

  • Need to up the bands on the deadlifts, gonna see how far I can go without sacrificing speed next week.
  • Speed was still good on the squats
  • Disappointed with my performance in the 10minute squat challenge. Shoulders gave out before my legs did, so I did some more assistance work to follow.
  • Will be doing side bends/or equivalent oblique work every week cause I havent for a while

Notes

  • Super disappointing in my performance today, just absolutely no strength. Couldn’t get 175 or 165 past my nose.
  • I was shocked and upset I couldnt even get 165lbs considering how easy 155lbs was.
  • I think my main problem is that once the weights get heavier I just cant get tight in my lats and upper back, so I dont have a solid foundation to push from.
  • Currently dont know how to train or remedy this, so any advice would be appreciated.
  • Volume Sets based on 155lbs

Notes

  • Despite the upset of Mondays training, today turned out to be a fantastic training day.
  • PRs on both beltless FS and belt-on Front Squat to Parallel. Good news for me, since I thought my FS was stalling, this shows otherwise.
  • Made sure to sit all the way down on the box before going up, slight pause on the 335lb lift, had longer pauses on all the warm up sets prior.
  • Noticed on the 365lb set that I almost caved forward after leaving the box, will work on that for future sets.
  • Decided to do some calf work, for the aesthetics.
  • Did some more time sets with the leg press this week, sticking with 390lbs for all sets. Gonna pump that up to 410lbs next time around.

Nice front squat man! The belted squat didn’t look as strong as the beltless. But they both were nice squats!

Timed leg press is brutal! Keep grinding man!
