Notes

  • Today was supposed to be axle press, but with the comp about 2 weeks away I opted to do some volume work on the log press. Trying to perfect the technique and just get used to it in general.

#524

For Chest Supported Row what are you actually doing? Machine or a abomination of free weights and benches?

I’ve started doing them consistently myself but I’m on a machine and going light for higher reps. Am curious how you are finding things because you are going heavy and relatively low reps. I think I’d be cheating too much with body English


#525

Im using a plate loaded machine, with isolated handles that rotate. its fucking great. I actually like using dumbells more tho, put I cant go as heavy per hand compared to the machine. CSR are probably my 3rd favorite back exercise next to Pullups and Pendlay Rows.

  • Honestly might zero the log event, which is whatever. Ill try my best.
  • Weighed in today too see how fucked I would be for cutting weight before Saturday(Need to be 220 or under)
  • Weighed 223lbs with clothes and at 7pm, I am fucking golden boys. Didnt realize I was such a skinny cunt @guineapig . So that takes some stress off of this week,

#537

Ended up placing 3rd in the 220lb MW Class in my comp today. Was a good day. Congrats to @mr.v3lv3t for popping his strongman cherry and doing very well in his first comp!

Will do a full write up later when I have access to a laptop.


#538

Way to kick some ass after the cut man! That was a ton of fun.
