The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    ME shirted bench off 1-bd:
    545 x 1
    565 x 1
    585 x 1
    555 x 1 (full range)

    I didn't do much else. Shirted benching took forever. Since I touched, I'm only going to shirt up once more before the meet.

    Thanks Nick! It's crazy how much difference a shirt can make. I'm just not strong enough for the overkill.

    It's February, 19th at Diablo. That's close enough I can sleep in my own bed which is nice. Bill, Cliff, and I are competing.

    I'm excited since Denison just confirmed the San Jose Fit Expo in July. There's been a NPC body building show in San Jose for years. Now they are building a full expo out of the event (run by the same people that do the LA fit expo) with vendor booths, strongman, powerlifting, etc. Denison is running a multi-ply meet at it on Saturday. I'm definitely doing that meet. It's about a 10 minute walk from where I live.

    ME suited deadlift:
    665 x 1
    715 x miss (jacked my straps too much and almost passed out)

    That was a bit freaky. First time I've ever had everything go completely dark while lifting. I'm not really sure how I didn't fall over.

    Cambered bar box squats:
    205 4 x 8 These were fast and to focus on firing correctly out of the hole.

    GHR
    MM + 10 lbs 4 x 8

    Hip abductor
    MM 2 x 8

    Thanks Brian. I still plan on 661 as my opener then 715. The key will be to not jack the straps between attempts.

    That should be a perfect opener. I couldn't pull with my straps tight either even though I noticed it helped my lockout more. It was a b***h getting down to the bar.

    Thanks Coke.

    Brian, Cliff is intense.

    ME bench off manpon vs 90 lbs of chains
    315 x 1
    345 x 1
    365 x miss (not very good)

    Overhead lockouts
    185 4 x 8

    Decline skull crushers
    95 4 x 10

    I didn't do any back work. I have to miss next Tuesday because of work. The plan was to do a reverse band squat max on that day. I'm going to do it Saturday after my DE work instead. I can't miss a ME squat this close to the meet.

    DE squats vs average band and 90 lbs of chain
    396 4 x 2

    ME straight weight with reverse average bands
    727 x 1 (add suit and straps up)
    793 x 1
    837 x 1
    859 x 1

    These felt pretty good. 859 rolled a little in my back and my forearms hurt from holding it to finish the lift.
