    That workout is called "max effort" for a reason. The 820 was a little slow (we were all having problems with balance today and tilting just a little bit for some reason), but he was strong with it and he didn't strain too much. The 860 was a more appropriate last set than the 820. The bar speed was slower, he strained, he worked. It is that work that not only increases physical barriers, it breaks down mental barriers and proves to your brain that you can handle the weights you are trying to handle. If you are feeling good and you are stopping your ME work with the effort he had on the 820, you are selling yourself short. Push it, MAKE yourself stronger.

    Good effort!

    That video made me think. For me, I can squat about the same with the SS bar that I can with a regular bar. How about the rest of you?

    Interesting. I remember Brandon Lilly not too long ago writing about setting a goal in mind for the day and not going any further than that. Ie, hit a 5 to 10 lb pr and shut it down. Guess the bottom line appears to be just move the weight and get stronger.

    I am closer with a cambered bar than I am with a SSB.

    there are two different schools of thought I think with that. I know lifters who follow a westside template who have preached the "no more than a 5-10 lb pr". This also goes with the "never miss a set in training" mentality.

    Rob and I don't really approach training that way. If we are feeling good, we push it. We have both pushed out 40, even 50 lb prs on ME days at the level of lifter that we are. The general rule we follow is keep adding weight until you are straining. ME work teaches you to strain. That is what is important, not some preconcieved idea of the weight on the bar. I don't like to think about exactly what I'm doing until I'm in the gym and then I never worry about the weights unless the bar isn't moving. Just add another plate and get under the bar. I really think a preconcieved weight will ultimately hold you back as you get stronger if you take that approach.

    Also, we tend to follow the rule that is miss once, possibly try agin, if you miss that, quit, unless you know exactly where you messed up to miss. I have missed a lift, then gone on to hit that weight and 2 more sets with heavier weights. Missing is not necessarily a bad thing. The worst thing I think lifters do on the platform is get smashed on their opener for whatever reason (ie misgroove, whatever) then miss their second. That point becomes "panic time" for the lifter because they have to get that 3rd attempt. I think if you miss occasionally in training on ME exercises it is not a bad thing, especially if you get back under the weight and try it one more time. Doing that you will teach yourself to refocus and get the weight. Again, you have to listen to your body, you can beat the shit out of yourself if you aren't careful doing that.
