    Anderson squats are from the bottom up. I hang the bar where I'm at parallel or below, then try and stand up as fast as you can. Nothing special, but hopefully it'll be effective.

    Exactly, but I hang the bar with Spud Inc. Suspension straps. It's alot easier to get into position.

    For those that are interested in Anderson squats....

    Here is a video of me doing some. I did them off a 13" box, but now I took the box away.

    Done...Sorry, but no video today...and I am pissed about it. A day like this needs to be recorded, lol. All I can say is, I am very pleased with my performance today. I set a goal of 2 reps, and I got 3. What more can I ask for?

    The 4" block pulls were a little hard. That height is a tough for me to pull from. I wanted 3 reps, but I got 2, (still a PR). I did stop at 2 and I took a step back to reset myself, but I couldn't even break the bar off the blocks, lol.

    ME block pulls after ME squats? I bet you'd have gotten that 3rd pull if you were fresh. Strong work in here sir.

    Done...I had a really good workout today, and I enjoyed it, lol. Next week I will skip the bands and maybe just do some CG floor presses or CG incline presses. Then i'll start another 3 week wave of bands. I really want some chains!!! I got my dip attachment from Rouge Fitness and used it today and it's pretty badass, lol.

    I'm not sure if i'll be competing again this year. The meet I planned on doing October 6th got pushed back to November 10th. That weekend doesn't work out for me. There is one on September 23-24 that I might be able to do, so we'll see.

    Sorry Brian, but I was a bit behind and catching up. Tremendous work recently. Big squat PR. Really like those Anderson squats for you too. Seems to be exactly what you need for working on keeping the chest up. You can see the strain you have with them and it seems based on the PR they are transferring over well for you.

    I know Brian Schwab has his meet October 27. I think either Adam Driggers or Tommy Fannon is having one in December sometime. Bobby and Carol-ann Myers have one in November sometime. Those are 3 others you could consider in Florida this year. I don't know if any will be on weekends you have off from work or not.
