You need to get that finger looked at pronto.
Stitches are the least of it. There may also be a chance of infection.
Great pulling though.
Congrats on the deadlift PR man. Strong stuff
excellent job thomas. despite the pain i bet it feels really good
Wow man you've got a solid squat and deadlift!
****ing awesome PR Thomas.....AND with a bum grip! That sounds horrible about the bite. Dont iguanas have pretty nasty germs in their mouth?
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

Speed deadlift (65%): 3x3 @ 320 lbs (120 sec rest b/w sets).
I forgot to mention that makes my sumo surpass my conventional pr, finally!! My conv pr is 440x1 then I switched to sumo. I love sumo I recover 10x faster from it and my traps have blown up.
Daaaamn, I almost missed this PR... damn 12th page! Look who has a huge sumo deadlift now?? Dude, that's awesome you went for it after you failed, I don't think I ever do that because I can never see myself putting more effort into it the 2nd time around. Where the **** is the video?!?!? I don't want to see you writing in a PR for a huge lift without a video! Congrats dude, that's awesome!

And I've only been reading your journal thoroughly for 2 weeks, LOL.
I like the looks of those next 2 DL sessions.
I really love short breaks between sets on the big leg and back movements. It's not too exhausting, but you get this great feel physically and it's nice to really handle the weights quickly.
once you finish your deadlift routine with sumo, you should test out your conventional max too. i bet it has skyrocketed.

thomas, how have you been helping your hip flexor recover? i hate to say it...... but i think i'm developing some tendinitis in my right hip flexor. the weird thing is that i have massive hip, ham, quad and glute flexibility.. i dont know how i can help this beyond the dreaded RICE
good work in here thomas. keep the squat and DL going!!!

The weight gain has been going better than expected but a little too fast. I woke up at 191 this morning. Last bulk I was nearly killing myself with food to get hear. I'm going to maintain for a awhile at 190 before I gain more. Got some quick shots up, bf% is up but still lean. Probably around 12%? I'm trying to keep my physique proportional I really need to bring up my lagging chest.
My obliques are so ****ing big I don't do any direct work to them either. Kind of reminds me of a football players obliques
Calves are measuring in at 16.25 inches. Still have vascularity in them as well.

DB Bench-No lockout reps. I get a crazy burn and pump in the chest from these
Push press-omg I suck at this.

Holy smokes Thomas... you nailed that bench. Very strong. I bb the same style as you exactly
Dude your repping 100lbs more than your BW on bench! Thats awesome.
Looking solid in those pictures, even though it's hard to see your leg development when you have your pants on (I'm really referring to that massive hairage you have going on)
That bench looked solid, you smoked the first 2, so I thought you had more in you, but that 3rd one looked tough. So 285x3 it is.
I'd love to focus on my bench again in the future. I really believe that I should be able to handle 300+, but I've only done it maybe a dozen times.
summer days. being lean is fun
i did see the link you posted.. sadly i was already all of those already as part of my daily PWO stretching, some in a different stretch.. but i have something for each hip flexor and all major lower body muscles. i think i have a real pull or strain here that needs rest. UGH!
