    After all that work and you still hit 225x15, you should definitely think about entering the bench contest here on WBB.

    135 x5
    225 x2
    briefs,belt
    225x2
    225x2
    225x2

    275x2
    275x2
    275x2
    275x2

    Conv Speed Pulls
    315 x1 x8

    Reverse Greenband Sumo
    225x1
    315x5
    405x2
    495x2
    545x3
    585x1
    585x1
    585x1

    Kneeling Cable Crunches
    150 x20 x3

    Good day. Felt good too. The squats and pulls moved fast. The reverse sumos I rested a minute in between sets, so the last 585 was a bit slow. The bands here about a full deload at the top. I took video of the last 2 sets of speed squats and the last 585, so if I can figure out how to upload it off my new phone, ill put it up.

    Ive really cleaned up my diet the last couple weeks eating no junk at all. I feel good, but Im slowly putting on a couple pounds which Im sure is muscle weight. Right now I stand at around 217. Im thinking that if im going to compete in May, im just going to go at 220. Ill continue what im doing, and see how it takes me to then.

    Great 3 board BC. Love it.

    Your pull is really taking off, mate. Keep 'er lit.

    What phone did you get? Can you upload straight from your phone? Thats cool. Lots more youtubery of you liftin'.
    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

    Thanks a lot homies! Figured it out finally. Im a newb with electronics. A little hard to hit depth with the briefs with lighter weight but close enough. And a pretty bad view of the pull, but gets the job done. Next time ill be sure to get better views:

    Yeah that's one thing I have to remember especially with lighter weight.


    Also, suit just arrived. About time, and it's pretty ugly haha. Looks like someone rolled in a puddle of oil in a blue suit lol
