The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    That's a lot of squats, Brian!

    What're dead squats - they the same as Anderson squats?

    Thanks alot bro! It actually wasn't that bad. My endurance was a little better this time around.

    About 9 weeks ago when I gave this program a run, I couldn't finish my last set of 10 on week one. I stopped at set #4 which was 455x10 and the last set that I skipped was 485. This time I finished all 5 sets and felt ok. So my endurance is coming around slowly.

    Monday
    01/07/13
    DL-WK2

    7 weeks out from RUM6

    Deathlifts
    135/2x10
    245x5
    Working sets
    355x10
    425x8
    460x8
    495x8-Added belt
    530x8
    565x8

    Dimmel deadlifts w/snatch grip
    135x10
    225x10
    315/3x10

    Shurgs
    135/2x10
    185/2x10
    Each rep was paused at the top for a 2 count and the first two sets were done with a snatch grip.

    Superset
    Ab wheel
    3x10
    Barbell curls
    65x12
    65/2x21's

    ****************************************
    This week was much better then last week. The last set was still a tough one, but on video it looks easy. I'm pretty sure I had another 2 reps, which is what I wanted, but on rep 6 I felt like my breakfast was about to come up, so I stopped at the required reps.

    I'm becoming a big fan of the snatch grip, especially with dimmel deads. So i'll be keeping these in the cycle and hopefully build some lockout strength and upper back. I'm also enjoying the paused reps at the top with shrugs. Both of these ideas I got from Jesse Jayne from Jersey Iron and Brandon Lilly.

    Also, the ab wheel really showed how weak my abs are, lol.

    The ab wheel... for such a simple device, it can inflict a lot of pain.

    Big volume on those deads, Brian. Always humbling to see people busting out high reps with weights most couldn't even budge from the floor, lol!

    Deadlifts looked easy. The singing in the background was actually pretty good! I give it a solid 8 to 9! Bench day looks solid. How do you like the Klokov press? They look interesting!

    Thanks Tim! I'm not exactly sure what my son was yelling out, lol. So far I like them, it's my second time doing them. You can really feel them in your triceps and rear delts. I'll be rotating them with Bradford presses, which is also something new that I like.
