    Great squats. I like how you vary the camera angle for each set.

    Thanks Marcus! I'm going to try and keep doing that for my squats and I'll try on my deads, but that area is pretty tight.

    Nice looking upper accessory Brian.....aka bodybuilding day. We all do it, lol.
    This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy - George Bernard Shaw

    DL @ 97%


    Deadlifts
    135x10
    135x10
    245x5
    245x5
    335x3
    425x1

    Added belt
    605x1
    Working sets
    695x1

    700x1
    700x1...Callus tore!!!!

    Decline sit-ups
    BWx12
    BWx12
    BWx12


    Done...Damnit man, another torn callus. I haven't had one in a while so I guess it was due. I was going to do one more set, but couldn't. Oh well, overall everything went pretty good. Each set felt good, they weren't fast, but they went up smooth. I am more pleased at the fact that I can pull 700 for 3 singles on 3 hours of sleep. I did get video of my 1st and 3rd set and a picture of my hand, so i'll post that up as soon as I can.

    Good idea. Better to get it taken care of now, while there is more than enough time.

    5 weeks out...

    Wednesday
    08.22.12
    SQ@80%


    Squat
    Barx10
    145x5
    145x5
    235x5
    235x5
    325x5
    415x5
    Added knee sleeves
    505x5
    Working sets
    Added belt
    540x5
    540x5
    540x5

    Paused squats
    1 min rest between sets
    325x2
    325x2
    375x2
    375x2

    JSB band squats w/EFS average bands
    2 sets for 30 seconds
    1 set for 45 seconds


    Done...Not a bad day. The weights weren't flying up but they felt pretty strong and my form was good. With the band squats, I just choke an average band to my new JSB and I use my DL stance and I do as many reps as I can for time. Once again, I had to train today instead of tomorrow because I have a dentist appointment early in the morning and I know for a fact that I won't feel like training later in the day. These are just some of the things that I have to deal with and do what I can and move on. Next week I should be back to normal and I will be squatting heavy and should be my last heavy session besides my opener.
