    12/20 Squats deload

    5 second Paused Squats (50%)
    Raw and beltless
    145x5
    235x5
    325x5 x3

    DB Rows
    150s x12 x3 each side

    Kneeling Ab Roller
    2x30

    This was still a good weight for such a long pause. Forces you to keep your hips tight. Great secondary movement if you have problems with power out of the hole. Here's the third set.

    Form was a little off tonight. Arch kept collapsing. Ive been having a bitch of a time benching off boards lately. Its half me and half the shirt. Definitely need a new one soon. Need to get this one a tune though until i can afford one, but not enough time before this meet. The way its going, ill be happy to crack 600 this meet. Its not a big deal as this meet is just to get a total for the XPC semis in the fall.

    800x1 opener
    865x0 blah

    Hypers hugging a 45lb plate
    3x12

    Standing Ab Pulldowns
    150x8 x2

    The plan was to work up to a projected 2 attempt. I wouldnt normally do this, but since im such a short training cycle, i wanted to het some heavy weight on my back. 800 was easy, so I decided to just go with 9plates and give it a run. Felt heavy from the get go but I thought I could get it. My feet were numb from wraps and had a hard time finding my feet under the bar, and it turns out my stance was narrower then usual. Right knee started to cave in near the hole, so I had them take the bar. With good set up, i should get it. Im looking more at 800-845-865ish. Heres the 800:

    Good training night. Wanted to touch about my estimated opener to get some full ROM work. 585 is a bit light in the shirt and it was tough touching. I dumped it a little but was able to recover and muscle it up. A little more weight will be perfect. Here it is:

    What do you think about using chains in a bench shirt touching or low boards? I saw you did several a few weeks back.

    Very nice front squats btw. That's one lift I've never been able to feel comfortable enough to do without the bar feeling like it will fall off even with a plate. But 450 is more than I have seen most people do on it other than a few shws.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    Hi April. Thanks for checking out the log. I like chains ina shirt full range to overload the lockout for sure. Im a believer in touching as much as possible rather then overusing boards. Boards have a place, but people get to used to board benching it screws them up up when theyre not there. Using chains is more natural the bands, and gives tou a better feel of your actual bench stroke.
    Thanks alot for the kind words about the frt squats. Its a lift I really believe helps both my squat and pull. Ive been working hard to get it up to 500 mark which i think will be there soon. I have the same problem using a straight bar. My shoulders are so compact i cant get the bar to sit properly. I hit the hole and it jist rolls. Using the reverse ssb really takes the worry out of it and still gives tou the same weight load.

    What do you think about touching with chains though? Do you think it is difficult to touch or not much moreso than straight weight?

    And I tried a reverse ssb bar once front squat. I did 1 rep with a plate. Never again. That sucked just as much.

    And I tried a reverse ssb bar once front squat. I did 1 rep with a plate. Never again. That sucked just as much.
    I do like using chains full range, but we keep the chains no more then 100lbs, usually just 80. Keeping the bar weight high keeps your form tight without struggling to touch and gives you the overload from the transition point on up.

    Squat looked strong, that's some serious band tension! I miss those days, lol.

    I'm also a big fan of using a SSB for front squats. I can't stand that pressure on my shoulders when using a straight bar. My best front squat w/SSB is 425x3. I think after RUM, I'm going to work on them a little more.

    1/6/14 Bench

    135x5
    225x5
    275x1
    315x1
    365x1 very sluggish
    Sling shot
    405x1 blah- shut it down

    CG Bench
    275x10

    V Grip Pulldowns
    190x10x3

    Tonite I was supposed to hit my opener, but once I started warming up I just got zapped of energy. Pushing it so many weeks in a row, and the heavy band squats 2 days ago, along with a low calorie day just was a recipe for disaster. 365 felt like shit, and after 405 I decided to shut it down and just wait to hit my opener next week.
