    squats w/ briefs and HC straps down

    reverse hypers 3 sets of 20

    ***tonite i felt off. the straps werent were they were supposed to be one me and if made a difference. i cut 835 high. then dropped down to 785 and burried it with the straps down. i will have to learn where to keep the straps on this suit to make it work. i still have the metal that is too big in the waist for me to try in a few weeks. tonite just felt off is all...

    ME BENCH

    raw bench
    135x10 225x6 315x3 405x1

    shirted bench
    545x1- 2boards
    585x1- 2boards
    675x1- 1board
    705x1- full range

    suicides
    315x5 4board
    315x5 3board
    315x5 2board
    315x5 1board
    315x1 full range

    ***tonite was a good session. benchin felt the strongest its been in a while. back in that katana again. may have to touch base with ken about a shirt...though i'm still waiting on the phenom. jon had a good nite. 705 3-board was a PR for him and was lowering the bar down faster when he went to wide grip. matt had an off night pretty much. his pec felt fine just was off was all. we had a new guy train with us, dave. he's 19 at 223 and had two bodybuilding contests and won the mr. teen alabama and wanted to do powerlifting because want to be strong and doesn't care about being on stage. benched with us tonite and got 500 off 3-board and missed 545 but wasn't a strength issue. he muscled up the 500 off 3-board but a little more time and technique he can get a 400+ raw and 500+ shirted bench. hell, he almost got 545 off 3-board. it was a great nite except for matt but he will get back on track.

    back to gettin strong now,

    ME SQUATS

    raw squats
    135x6 225x3 315x3 425x1 515x1

    with metal squatter and metal briefs...straps up
    605x1 695x1 785x1(depth!) 835x1(depth)

    reverse hypers
    only did one set cause matt blew the bands on his 2nd.

    ***i think the issue with the hips bein too wide maybe resolved. i was able to get depth easier with the metal squatter. it was awesome. killed 785 and muscled up 835 when i fell out of the groove for a slight second at the bottom. done without knee wraps as usual so 900 is possible. we are startin the coan dead program friday. but raw bench with dave on thursday and for a raw bench stuff we are goin to use minis to help with speed.

    squats are comin up,

    thanx fellow freaks!

    raw bench/shoulders/triceps

    raw bench w/dbl minis
    135x12 225x6 315x3
    355x5 375x4 390x3
    345x8 345x8

    raw bench w/o dbl minis
    345x23!!

    key presses
    95x10-9(with 20 sec rest)

    pec deck
    170x10-10-10

    front laterals
    100x5 100x5

    side laterals
    50x10 40x8 30x6

    tricep deaths
    dips for 20 reps for 2 sets supersetted with
    diamond pushups for 10 reps for 2 sets

    ***today was a kickass session. trained with dave and he's a freak for sure. we worked on his setup a lot more and he has it down now. killed 245 for 25 reps. today was his first time using bands so he got up to 280 for 3 easy reps. we were pushin each other a good bit on repouts. he did 25 with 245 and i did 23 with 345 but we both miscounted. before we went to the vid, we both counted my reps at 26. well...seems like me, dave can't count. that's a sign of a powerlifter. LOL!! when i started this bench cycle before i did 350 for 17 reps so me hittin 345 for 23 was a huge jump. we took the bands off for the restabilization to take effect. we killed shoulders and triceps and was done. hittin deads/back with matt and jon tommorrow...however, i gave dave some learning material and a challenge that his eager to take on too...

    gotta love challenges,
