    Thanks brother..

    Max Effort Squat: 7-24-10

    Foam Roller
    Warm ups

    Max Free Squat- Barx5, 155x5,155x3, 205x2,245x1, 295x1, 335x1, 355x1, 365x1, 375xMISS
    GHR- 3x10
    Reverse Hyper- 3x10
    Pulldown Abs- 3x15

    I wasnt very happy with how today went, 375 wouldve been a 5 lb PR, but i missed it out of the hole. Ted Toalston told me my back was to hunched over, when i came out of the hole....In some ways 365 is a PR for me, seeing as how my best squat of 370 was done with knee wraps on....but im gonna keep busting my ass and hit a PR the next time.
    Heres a video of the squat- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIgGigGmziA

    Today was awesome,, everything felt great in my hands,, hit some big PR's...the first set of 3 with 275 off the 3 board felt a little wierd, so i decided to take it again, to try and get it figured out, and the 2nd set felt good and easy, so went to 285 and that also felt pretty good. Thanks to several people who have helped me get my bench form better,, im looking for a big 1 rep max PR soon.

    Week 1, Day 2: 8-4-10

    Warm ups

    Wide Grip Pulldowns- Regular bar-2 setsx10, wide bar with hammer grip handle-2 setsx10, straight bar-2 setsx10
    Tredmill- walked for 15 mins
    Foam Roller- very hard and deep work all over.

    Just some light stuff today, im not able to follow the exact nutritional section of the program yet, due to me not having all of the Biotest supplements like everyone else,so my recovery is lacking...alot. Im a little concerned about that, so im going to try to back it down a little during the week, until i can get things straightened out.
