    Bri if you can sit there and do 3 easy singles with that weight, in your garage, on a regular day, imagine how easy it's gonna feel on meet day when you're jacked up have a bunch of people watching and cheering for you. Smoke show. Guaranteed.

    Hey Hopp can't wait to see what u hit at meet! Try and stay healthy man. Give that shoulder some time to heal. If I learned anything from the injury it was the importance of the small things. Stretching and proper warmups! I would stay away from the over heads for awhile. Just do some stuff to get blood flow. Laterals and things with bands. Good luck bud

    Brian dude, I couldn't be happier with the progress! Thanks for trusting me and showing what the program can do! I can't wait to see you smash some fucking numbers here bro. Your squat looks sick and your pull is ridiculous! Nurse up that shoulder these coming weeks and you'll do nicely on bench as well!

    Thanks alot Tim!!! I'm trying brother, lol. I really need to work on stretching and mobility thats for sure. I'm already throwing in some more warm-ups, but I think the stretching and mobility stuff is going to help.

    SQ-Opener


    Squat
    Barx10
    145/2x5
    235/2x5
    325x3
    415x1
    Added belt and knee sleeves
    505x1
    575x1
    Opener
    625x1

    Paused squats
    325/6x2

    Back raises
    BW/3x12


    Done...I trained today instead of tomorrow because of plans the wife and I have. I did some mobility work last night and this morning before I squatted and I felt pretty good. I really need to work on this and keep it going. Time to stop being lazy!!! lol

    My opener felt pretty good. The setup and walkout felt ok, I had the hooks set higher then I did last week and that threw me off a little. But it wasn't that bad.
