    Dynamic Effort Squat
    Category: Sports


    Dynamic Effort Squat BW 285lbs

    Started with the Safety Squat Bar (SSB) off of a 15in Box. Started RAW

    65lb Bar x 10reps
    155x8
    245x5
    335x2


    Added 160lbs in chains, 80lbs hanging on the chain hangers and 80lbs swinging from the bar. Did 1st set RAW then put on suit left straps down. All weight shown here is the actual weight on the bar so whatever the weight is add the 160lbs chains.

    295x2
    385x2
    435x2
    435x2
    435x2
    435x2
    435x2
    475x2

    Weight felt good. I liked the set up with both swinging chains and chains on the chain hangers.


    Moved to Back attack

    1plate + 2purple minis x 10reps
    2plates + 2 purple minis x 10reps
    3plates + 2purple minis x 10reps
    4plates + 2 purple minis x 10reps


    Glute Ham Raise (GHR)

    2sets w/ BW x 10reps


    Reverse Hyper

    2 sets x 15reps

    Today felt good. I feel as if im getting stronger every week. Been kinda stressed out lately n not sleeping well either but the gym and all the guys at the gym make the situation much better n its hard to think what I would do without Powerlifting back in my life.

    Max Effort Squat
    Category: Sports


    Max Effort Squat Day BW 287lbs

    Reverse Band Squats with monster minis off a 15in box

    RAW

    255x8
    345x4
    435x3
    525x1

    Put on suit left straps down n moved to a 16in box still below my parellel

    635x1
    725x1
    815x0 missed
    815x0 missed ( had straps up for this one)

    Lifts felt good today. 725 went up easy. Mike and Jim said I was relaxing way to long on the box and that i should have touched and went. Both times I got up and off the box but could only get about 1/4 of the way up. Mike and Jim said to just change the way I set on the box with the heavier weight. Jim said if i didnt use the box I woulda prob had the lift. We will see next time.


    Moved to deadlifts with suit on. Trying mainly sumo now.

    315x3 (con)
    315x3(sumo)
    405x3(con)
    405x3(sumo)
    495x1(conv)
    495x1(sumo)
    585x0(sumo, 3/4 way up)
    585x0(sumo, 3/4 way up)

    Moved weight down, let Mark crtique my form.

    315 x 5sets x 1rep(sumo)
    405x1(sumo)
    495x1(sumo)
    585x0(sumo, 3/4 way up)


    Was really pissed off lastnight for not being able to pull 585. Will work on it some more. Left after that really hurt my back on the 2nd attempt of 585. Will rest it and be good to go on sat. Thanks to everyone who helped me lastnight. And Dane BROTHERS DONT SHAKE HANDS BROTHERS GOTTA HUG!!!!!!!!!

    You really are going to make Elite in the 275's.
    You hit an 815 squat, right?
    pulling about 600?
    Benching 550?
    That's 1965 Jesus dude. Come back from a 4 year hiatus and hittin Elite in your first meet is almost a damn certainty!
    **** you.
    Out of the night that covers me,Black as the Pit from pole to pole,I thank whatever gods may be for my unconquerable soul. In The fell clutch of circumstance I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance my head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears looms but the horror of the shade And yet the menace of the years finds, and shall find, me unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate how charged with punishments the scroll,I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

    Didnt get the 815. But Mark said his best box squat in briefs was 775 and he squats 1003, and i hit a 685 in briefs. Mark thinks im good for 800+ at the meet. Pull im not to sure of. At least a 585 and hoping to bet the 550 bench. Hit a 555 with a 2board.

    You don't want to let me outpull you in this meet. Trust me on this. Hoss will never stop calling you Tina. You gotta do better than 585 or I will tho.
