    Done...Not a bad start. It's pretty cold here in central Florida so my throat and lungs were on fire, lol. I'm 25 weeks out from my next meet and once again i'm going to try some new things but also incorporate some of the old. Finished off with pushing the prowler for 2 rounds @ 200ft each (high bar for 100ft and then low bar for 100ft) and then pulling the prowler for 2 rounds @ 200ft. First round we used 1PPS and 2nd round we used 2PPS.

We pulled out the prowler again and pushed it for one round @ 200ft with 1pps, one round @ 200ft with 2pps, and then 2 rounds @ 100ft with 2pps.

    I like the suicide grip. Use it whenever I bench close grip.

    I always benched with a suicide grip, but when I got back to multi-ply lifting and widened my grip, I switched. I feel pretty powerful with my new grip so deciding on going thumbless or not shouldn't be hard.

    After you hit 1900, I really wanna see you do another geared meet. 'Cus you know doing geared stuff is so easy when you don't have a crew.

    Completely agree here. I have liked it for bench when I have used it, but all it takes is one false move. Worst thing with OHP is you dropped the bar in front of you.

    I'm throwing around the idea of squatting and deadlifting every other week, only to see how it works. But more then likely I'll run 531 till I'm about 8 weeks out, then I'll run a JI program for the meet.

    Thanks Gaz! I enjoy doing them, they definitely help with explosiveness. Just remember to land soft. It'll be easier on your knees.

    I do agree with the OHP, that's the only grip I use, lol. I do feel comfortable benching with this grip, but it's been so long since I've used it. Since I moved my grip in, I probably won't use it. I'll figure it out in a couple weeks.

    Congrats on the total and dead pr. The fact you still broke 1800 with a shotty pec leading up to the meet is pretty sick. Are you going to stay in the 242's for your next meet?
