Holy 755 bench you crazy bastard!! I don't really have anything else to say other then you are a beast!
Tone, Do you feel the speed bench has helped your raw bench?
Im contemplating starting this back up.

I'm weak now, but not for long
Yardage, I haven't done much speed work. I did some 531 which really brought my raw bench up big time (at one point I hit 440x7) but I rarely do much speed work anymore. I think it has it's place, but the bands really seem to put a big hurting on my wrists and elbows whenever I use them so I do it very sparingly. The guy to ask would be Vinny. 600 raw he's gotta be doing it right.
Tore my left calf at work today. How awesome is that. Training on the squat finally starts going well and I get an injury carrying **** at work. FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU**. It's pretty swollen and hurts like hell to walk on. I'll try to get some pics when I get home.
FUC*. #@$@# , go to a doctor to get it looked at man??? Im real sorry to hear that big guy, I really am......****.
Don't asker for a light load, but a strong back.

Not sure what's going on with my calf. Still balled up a bit but felt ok today. Decided to see what I could do as far as deadlifting.

Good stuff there with the deads, especially after the mishap.
Damn dude, this sucks. It looks not to bother you too much on the vid. Hopefully not too serious. Happy Holidays bro and eat up big.

Thanks CoCoa. The way Tim and I have to do them limits us a little. The gym we train at during the week doesn't have a power rack. So we're stuck trying to hand the weight off a pallet with a few matts on top of it. Not the greatest way of doing things. But we make due. I think I could get over 400 if we did these in a rack.
Went Full Gear today. Still didn't have the day I wanted. Completely pissed off and tired of dealing with my squat.
This wound up being a contest today. Last man standing won.
655x1 (PR Raw Conventional) This pull won me the contest.
Monster pull. Nice. Had you anything left?655x1 (PR Raw Conventional) This pull won me the contest.
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
Tone, your numbers are lifts strong bro!!! How's your calf doing?

Flynn I probably would have been able to get 10lb more. I think I would have been good for even more than that had I not spent a ton of energy on the 405x10.
Thanks Brian. Everything but my squat really seems to be coming along. Calf is fine. Not sure what happened to it. It was balled up, hurt like hell, felt really bad for the first day, but by Saturday it felt fine. Don't know what I did. It does seems to be balled up more than the right one now, but it doesn't hurt.
11.30.09 ME Bench
Elbows & forearms are beat up from shirt benching then floor pressing last week. Took it easy this week. I'll be back in the shirt and pushing next week.
Close Grip off 2-Board
Dude... you sure that calf is torn and balled up? and not just swollen? I can see ripping some high deadlift reps with that, but a full-gear ME squat?
Nice deadlift. Conventional raw deadlifts are just too badass... i did them myself tonight for the second time in three years. Got one less rep than you did...
Holy 705 squat and 655 deadlift in the same day! Where the hell do you get the energy for that much liftin???

Feeling beat again. Cycle this time seems to be going one big heavy week, one down week. I'm making progress so I'm not complaining.
Raw Sumo Deads
60/4x10 Tried to go as fast as I could and be explosive.
Taking two steps forward and one step back is not a bad deal dude, progress is progress...like that session.
