    Not looking bad with the squats, especially considering how you overcompensate for days like these.

    Kyle

    Thanks its been quite the journey. Lots of eating and consistency.

    Bo

    haha thanks. My last ME lower I had the straight bar scheduled but the group I squatted with wanted to go with the SSB so I said whatever and went with it. Too much time away from the straight bar=bad.

    Coke

    Thanks I hope so.

    Brian

    Thanks! I'm going to get my 1brd and 2brd numbers up and see how that converts over to my raw bench.

    Stump

    Ehhh its was okish I guess. Just be expecting some better numbers coming up!

    'mirin those calves and the veins. Sickness there.

    Your legs always stay lean don't they?

    405, raw, on the flat bench is sick! Not much more I can say.

    Thanks T+P its felt good to handle 405. I'm going to be putting in more work with boards so those numbers should go up! Yea my legs are usually lean. I have to stay sub 10% though if I want vascularity in the calves. Still not vascular in the quads yet. Probably won't be till my comp is over on may 5th.

    Rob I'll get a video up for you.

    Start wearing a different colored shirt or a singlet on your bench presses. Due to your arch, that black shirt makes it appear that you have the biggest gut for a low 200 pounder! lol

    I'm even thinking, "Damn! Thomas is chubby!" But I know it ain't true.

    BTW those Sled Rows what equipment do you need to make it work? Did you get it from somewhere or have someone construct it? I really want one of those. I'd love to do those sled rows as well as a few other things.

    lol that means I'm benching right! Big arch belly full of air. Doesn't matter what shirt I wear I always look like I have a belly when I bench. The sled I believe I got from S&P equipment for about $90. I used a rope extension in that video. The sled is amazing for GPP one of my favs.

    Does anyone here have experience with Vibrams for squatting dead lifting and GPP work like the sled and prowler? Right now I've been changing shoes almost daily between my chucks and running shoes for GPP work. I don't care if people think they look gay. I'm looking at this from a performance aspect.

    Vibrams are thought to look gay? And lifters wear Chuck Taylors, seriously? Those who wear chucks can't negatively speak upon other's lifting shoes.

    I wear FILA's which are similar in style to the Vibrams and I would definitely get another pair. I actually would like to get a true pair of Vibrams because I think they're made better.

    I exclusively train in them, and don't feel they look bad at all. Good for calf training as well.

    They can run you $100, but I got the FILA's for $65 at the time, so not a bad trial run.
