ME deadlift off 4" blocks vs quaded minis:
515 x 1
545 x 1 (30 lb PR)
565 x 1 (50 lb PR)
585 x miss
That was a huge PR. The band hooks are further apart at the new gym, so it's more tension. Plus, the bands are brand new.
Cambered bar squats:
205 4 x 8
MM 3 x 10
3 x 5
This is a really good video. Bill, Cliff, Kevin, MCL, and I all deadlifted together. Everyone has gone over 600 in a meet. Bill and I have gone 710.
Bill had added dimes to go 535. MCL asked me what I was going to take, and I said "dime nickel". Bill was about to go, stopped, said, "fuck you" and changed his attempt, haha. He wanted to make sure we took the same weight. I was planning the dime nickel to setup going quarter on the next set for 565.
That deadift video was great buddy!
Thanks Lones. It was a lot of fun.
that was a great vid... The 'WTF WAS THAT?' got me... nice work from all of you guys/gal
Thanks! That's the first time I've seen Cliff shake like that. It's a LOT of band tension at lockout.
We're getting the monolift on Monday. That'll be pretty awesome.

Cambered bar GMs

I had to cut it short, since it was the g/f's b-day.
At least she let you train, lol.
This was the first in 3 years that I was not competing on my gfs birthday haha.
Nice job with the training lately. Looks like you are on pace to pull mid 7s+.
Brian, yeah. She's learned how things work. I'm going to train and vacations involve a powerlifting meet :)
Ryan, I hope you're right. My deadlift training feels better than ever.
No training today. I setup the platform and assembled the monolift. We can't use it yet. One of the hooks was bent in shipping. We're supposed to have the replacement part next week. That was annoying, but Elite was right on getting a replacement part.
Thats a kick in the balls, lol. But at least they are going to send you a new one.
Yeah, we could fix it ourselves if we really wanted to, but it's better to get a replacement.
The new stereo even sounds better on the videos. It was a pretty big upgrade.

Luv the vid(s), you all are doing work and appear to even be having fun with it too.
Thanks Coke. We try to include the funny stuff if we get it on video.
Thanks Brian. That bar is really difficult for me. I'm going to mix those in as an accessory more often.

ME sumo deads (testing super centurion):
605 x 1
655 x 1
685 x miss (hand got caught on my leg above my knee)
I'm not really sure why my hand always gets stuck there on heavy sumo deadlifts.
Olympic style box squats with SSB:
260 3 x 8
110 3 x 10
I got an epic amount of face blowout from the deads. That kind of wore me out.
