Hit my openers on squat/dead. My squat opener vid was taped over by the deadlift vid. But I'll post the half of the vid I have. :hump:


SQ Last warmup, 505x1

DL opener, 500x1(new experiment with gear setup and watch how fast the hips slip in)

Sick deadlift CR. I said "holy crap!" at the same time as that dude in the background, haha, it made me laugh.

good lifts
what is your current weight now?
how much are you going to have to cut to make 165 or are you there now.

I was 164 for that training session. My morning weight should be fine. I should not have to cut.

Thanks guys. I just hope I can make 550 look like that at the meet.

Oh man, I just watched the 505 squat and that was insanely fast.

You know I'm not worried about your depth, but it seemed as though your last warmup set was higher than your opener. Is this gear combo you're running taking an assload of weight to hit depth?

I have the same trouble in my video if you have a look at it, and I'm only using low grade poly. This little piggy has gear that stands up on its own :D


Great speed as always Chris!

Thanks again everyone. I am really fired up for this meet. Should be a great time, regardless of the outcome.

Basically, as you warmup and add weight you get closer and closer to depth. My goal in a meet is to only make legal depth on my attempts, not on my warmups. I could squeeze 505 down lower, but I might have to compromise my form to do so. Not worth it for me on a warmup.

Nice, man. So, two weeks out, are you resting now until the meet, or just going to do some light DE type work until a week before?

Tonight will be my last shirt workout(12 days out). I'll work up to my opener or so and then take it off. After that I'll do some assistance, but nothing too heavy.

The rest of the week I will just ease off. I won't be shooting for any PR's on any big lifts. Friday night will be my last session and I will just go up to 3 plates on squats for a few doubles or something(in briefs). Then I'll shut it down and rest for the week. I won't deadlift this week.

I won't deadlift this week.That's pretty much what I do. Only opening weight the week before my rest week. I'll do my opener on Wednesday on bench, then some light assistance, then do light squat and opening weight on deadlift on Thursday and then rest for the next 9 days or so.
