    How is pressing with the fat bar? I've benched with it, but never overhead press.

    It's a little awkward. I haven't used one in a long time. For some reason, I have to use a thumbless grip when I do OHP's. After my meet I'll use it more for my flat benches.

    Love floor presses, they've really helped me keep my back and core tight for some reason, plus they're fun. I'm stoked for you going in to this, actually excited for you man. It's gonna be awesome.

    Yeah me too, I used to be pretty good at them. My best is 440x1, but I stopped doing them. My main concern with them, is the pressure it puts on my pec...not a fan. So I'll use them around the 70-80% range and build the strength instead of testing with one rep. Thanks Mark!

    Thanks Tim, I sure hope so. I think not watching my weight is making it easier on me. I only have one focus and that's training. I'm looking to having some fun and watching some amazing lifts and meeting some of the best lifters in the world. I already have plans to watch Andrey attempt to smash 2500 raw the next day!

    Thursday
    01.23.14
    SQ/DL assistance

    Speed squats w/SSB
    Barx10
    150/2x5
    240/2x3
    330x3
    410/3x3

    Wide grip pulldowns
    120/3x15

    Chest supported rows
    40/3x15

    DB shrugs
    90x15
    100/2x15

    Band leg curls
    3 sets of 15 using an EFS average band

    Stir the pot
    3x20

    Done...My knees were a little sore still, plus it's pretty cold outside, so I decided to just put on my Rehband knee sleeves from the start. I also decided to not wear a belt for all my sets. The first working set with 410 wasn't as fast as my last two, probably because of the weight jump. Today was my last session of speed squats and I think they've helped me out a lot, especially while doing them with a SSB. Tomorrow I'll hit my OHP work and some light shoulder, tricep and bicep work and that'll wrap up the week.

    Brian, your opinion on a SSB for a large percentage of squatting while working on better shoulder flexibility? My rack should be done in a few weeks (hopefully) and a local company has a pretty solid SSB for about $250, as thinking about pulling the trigger on it.

    I would rotate them with a straight bar. I wouldn't use it ALL the time. Only reason why I would rotate bars often is just so I keep my technique in check. As far as making the purchase, I highly recommend it!
