The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

    Thanks Mark! I really like how Brian has me deloading every 3rd week. I've been following his logs and training for awhile and I never really understood why, but now I do and I'll continue to do so after RUM.

    How often do you do rack pulls? Looked like the bar was right at your knees?

    Honestly, I haven't really used them in my routine until now. I've messed around with them in the past, but not enough to see a difference. I'm only doing them because Brian has them in my routine. Yes, the bar unloaded is set around mid knee.

    They do, and sometimes it can get out of hand, lol. Today they wanted to learn a few things which I thought was cool. I taught them how to do tricep pushdowns, pulldowns, reverse grip pulldowns, standing OHP, bicep curls and most importantly...SQUATS!!!!

    Do you think that the deloads so often are making a difference?

    I definitely think that spreading out how often I lift heavy recently has been making a positive difference, specifically with benching.
    Best competition lifts:
    650lbs. raw squat
    441lbs. raw bench
    580lbs. raw deadlift
    1650lbs. raw total

    I'm pretty sure they are making a difference in how I feel and recover. It's something I'll continue to do after RUM that's for sure.

    Done...Those reps with the SSB got me a little sick, lol. I had to cut the session a little short. Not a big deal, just sucks because I hate not finishing my workouts. I spoke with Brian and he told me I can bump my speed work up 10% since my speed is pretty good. I'll do that next week and see how it goes.
