    Brian you are killing PRs all over the place. Impressive as hell numbers too. I honestly cannot wait to see you crush the numbers you are truly capable of and deserve in two weeks.

    You like the jack briefs? Funny, I have just gone back to mine. I wore predators for last comp and prep and I cannot use them at all. Pity it took me too long to realise. Such a difference. Maybe the jacks are more forgiving. I dont know. Im sure they certainly pack out your canvas if its already tight lol.
    Thanks a lot Justin! Ill definately try the stickum too. The good thing for the meet is that Gene Rychlaks benches have great pads on them with non slip covers. so there shouildnt be any problems.. The bar he uses is another story though. Too much whip.
    I really liked the Jack briefs. They dont have a lot of stopping power, but were perfect with a canvas since the canvas has enough stop to it. I think ill buy them after this meet, but ill be using the Boss' again this time.

    I know you've been busting balls for that bench dude. Congratulations.
    Thanks bro. Nothing but PRs with the Jersey Iron Program!

    Pretty sure its an Iron wolf. But its a little longer then a Texas bar and whips like crazy. Tone's last attempt at his meet was frickin scarey trying to touch it jumped around so bad. I thought he was going to dump for sure. Its almost like a deadlift bar.

    Yeah, I noticed that in the video, a little too scary. I'm guessing he uses Iron Wolf bars for the squat and deadlift also?

    He uses an iron wolf squat bar which is a lot thicker then most, bt not sure what DL bar he uses. That seems a little shorter then a texas. Issues with every bar lol.

    Haha, I'm glad you mentioned that about the deadlift bar. I noticed that also, lol. I remember saying "Damn, Tone makes that deadlift bar look small" lol.

    11/20 Deadlift Opener

    Sumo
    245x3
    335x3
    Suit bottoms
    425x1
    Loose straps
    525x1
    Full gear
    575x1 Opener

    Snatch grip BB rows
    185x15 x2

    Moved pretty good. Felt a little heavy, but i didnt sleep last night and was lacking energy. But thats what i wanted since ill be in a tired state by the time we pull at the meet. The meet doesnt start until 3pm(split into 2 meets,morning/afternoon). So we'll be pulling at like 9pm. All training is done and im happy how this cycle went. Over 2k is the goal and shouldnt be a problem. Heres the 575 pull:

    You are fucking ready for this Brian. Over 2k is there to be had. Just get in and fucking do it.

    Is there a stream?

    I'm rooting for you over here man. Don't let me down
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    Really didnt do anything, just messing around and helping everyone else out. Im having problems with my right hip and left knee, so I dont want to do much and just rest them this week. Everything is done and im confident, so time to just cruise into the meet.
