    Your pulls are scary fast now @ that weight. The day you hit 800 is the day I fly down and shower you in a victory champagne.

    Thanks Thomas!! I was not at full speed but its almost back.......4 weeks and my speed should be better than ever.

    Thanks Coke!! Pretty fun day, thought I should do some high rack work just to get the torso moving some weight.

    Thanks Gazzy!! Hard but not hard.

    Thanks Rob!! Nearly where it should be.



    Neck is getting better slowly and groin is not too bad, some blood flow work should help at this point.

    Squats tomorrow!

    Thanks Hayden!!


    Haulin Steel..............pulls and squats

    Sumo 7.5" blocks (first time in ages)-
    135 x 4
    225 x 2
    315 x 2
    405 x 2
    495 x 2
    545 x 2
    585 x 1
    Add suit
    635 x 1
    675 x 1
    705 x 1
    550 x 10 PR
    600 x 2 way too tired here

    16" box squat in briefs-
    225 x 1
    315 x 1
    365 x 1
    405 x 1
    455 x 1

    Squats were just to keep some strength there, the pulls were ok but my PR is 745 so I need to get my hip strength back......shouldnt take long.

    550 X 10 was not all that hard.

    Hammys are smashed, weak they are weak!

    Would love to see you compete bro... Your numbers are great man! Keep up the specific smashing of your weaknesses, need I even say that as you consistently smash your weaknesses away. It's great!

    Thanks Gazzy, Tom, Coke, Hayden, Rob and BC!!

    I have plans to compete of course but I am focussed on pulling 800.
    I respect lifters who compete a lot and know that gym lifts are only gym lifts, yes I will be keen to get numbers in the books.



    Body building type day.........very fun.

    Upright rows-
    2 sets of 12

    Wide pulldowns-
    2 sets of 20

    Single arm cable rows-
    70 x 8
    80 x 8
    90 x 8
    100 x 8
    110 x 8
    120 x 8
    130 x 8
    140 x 8
    150 x 8
    160 x 8

    Band rows-
    6 sets of 12

    Side raises-
    6 sets of 10

    Front raises-
    4 sets of 12

    Curls pinching 10lb plastic dumbell-
    3 sets of 30

    DB curls-
    30s x 10 x 3 sets

    Body is healing up fast, I said to myself if I could improve just 1% during this tough period I would set myself up for a good year 2012 and I have done that.

    Speed pulls this Thursday will be light and quick at 205+120 for 6 doubles raw conventional, then squats back raises and shrugs.

    Hamstrings (my biggest weakness) will get hit hard every max efforrt day.

    RSU.

    675 off 3" blocks......old form which I am going back to if I can sort the balance out.....simply stronger this way.

    Should have gained some strength so when I get it right I could see some bigger numbers.

    think those are all reasonable and well achievable goals Nick. Dig the bodybuidling type of work and you're still doing awesome on the pulls as always. Keep it up dude
