    Workout was a bit rushed today. Had to get some things done around the house.

    Weight: 168lbs

    135lbs x 5
    185lbs x 3
    235lbs x 1 (working on staying upright)
    235lbs x 1 (stayed more upright, speed suffered)
    235lbs x 1 (pulled back hard)
    235lbs x 1 (hips through fairly fast)
    235lbs x 1 (pulled more straight up)
    235lbs x 1 (pointed toes more forward, felt a lot smoother)


    Squats-

    45lbs x 5
    95lbs x 5
    135lbs x 5 (staying upright pretty good, wrists aching a bit)
    185lbs x 1
    185lbs x 1
    185lbs x 1
    185lbs x 1

    #3 x 10


    Band Chops-

    #3 x 10/10
    #3 x 10/10


    Band Traction Work



    Comments:

    Felt like today was more of a form day than speed day. I'm trying to relearn how to pull since I've laid off of it for so long. Towards the end of the speed sets, I was feeling pretty decent but I can still make some more improvements. The squats were feeling good except for my wrists. They were tweaked pretty bad for some reason. I need to address that problem. The Traction Work and Reverse Hypers are part of my warmup stuff and they seem to be working pretty well. Didn't feel like going heavy on the RDLs so I just hit up a high rep set to stretch my hams and glutes. Could've kept going for awhile longer with those. Overall I felt like I got some good work done even though I was rushed a bit.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Stumpy- Thanks man.

    LK- I usually wear them or tape my wrists on my heavier sets.

    Tommy- Appreciate it. The session definitely wasn't anything special, but I felt like I got a fair amount done.

    Speed work is just that, work. Nothing fancy, but it'll make you stronger. Keep it up.

    Tommy- I agree. Thanks man.




    Had to shift my ME work back one day. I have a tournament in GA that I've got to leave for Saturday morning. We better play better than last time.



    Workout: ME Upper

    Location: Home

    Weight: 168lbs


    ME Reverse Band Bench-

    *Blues doubled around rack. Green attached to Blues. Lack 1/2" from complete deload. Band only stretches about a foot from unrack to chest.*

    95lbs x 5
    135lbs x 3 (feeling very good)
    185lbs x 1 (focus on leg drive)
    205lbs x 1 (very good rep, nice leg drive)
    225lbs x 1 (brought chest to bar, very smooth)
    245lbs x 1 (nice drive and chest to bar)
    265lbs x 1 (very good rep all the way around)
    285lbs x 1 (+10lbs PR, maintained form the whole way through)



    Yates Rows-

    135lbs x 10 (OH)
    135lbs x 10 (OH)
    155lbs x 10 (UH)
    185lbs x 5 (UH)
    205lbs x 5 (UH, reset to rack after each rep)
    185lbs x 5 (UH)


    Band Judo Pulls (around 3rd pin)-

    #2 close x 10/10
    #2 close x 10/10


    Band Traction Warmup
    RC Work



    Comments:

    Actually felt very good once I got into this workout. Had a bit of nagging elbow pain, but the Band Traction work seems to be really helping. I do a bit of it between every set, and it really keeps me feeling loose. My form felt dead on today. I was getting my leg drive down. I was not having to think as hard about keeping everything in line. It fell into place pretty good today. 265 was incredibly smooth. 285 stuck a good bit about halfway up, but I expected that as the bands kick out pretty quickly. They aren't having to stretch very far at all, so I'm not getting much out of them. I've got my eye on a 315 RB Bench. The Yates Rows felt pretty good today. Added in some new stuff as well. I used to do Judo High Pulls when I worked with Kettlebells. I hooked the bands low and used the same motion. Hit the upperback pretty good. Overall a very solid workout for me.

    Good work bro'. Always improving something it seems.

    I'm gonna' have to get some bands, or chains, or something. I feel left out not having any toys to use like most of the WBB crew seem to have.

    LK- Appreciate it man. I'm trying.

    In this picture, look at his left elbow. For the judo high pull, I'd bring it a bit higher. The movement would start out in front of me and I'd bring the elbow high and back. In KBs we used it as an inbetween movement. For those that were having trouble snatching, we'd have them do the high pulls.


    Brute- Thanks big guy. I picked mine up for Christmas. Just started using them as of late.


    Kev- Missed ya Kev. Thanks man.

    Tommy- Yea I think HomeYield for that. My rack is too tall to just have the bands come down. I need the Blues to get the Greens at a decent height.

    Coke- Appreciate it man.

    LK- I think they could. The motions are a bit different but it really teaches you to grip the KB and keep the elbow high.

    Stumpy- Thanks man. I'd like to hit 315 soon enough.

    Band Traction Work

    Decompression Work



    Comments:

    Ahhh, ya gotta love when things come together. Today felt great. Felt like I had a good bit more drive in my pulling. Set a nice little PR as well. If I work my hips lower, I tend to round a bit more. If my hips are high, I'm out over the bar. It'll just take more work, but I'm happy to do it. I will get stronger. Nothing is going to stop me. This was also the first time I used bands for my squatting. The tension was pretty strong with the number 2s doubled like they were. The 185 sets felt very, very smooth. Hopefully I can get HY to tweak my form some more, but I think I used a lot of what he suggested. Overall a great day for me.

    Sweet looking workout Chubs... a couple of good PRs.. way to go..
    Awesome form on your vids...
    Although there might be some debate, I think you are going too wide on your squat stance... unless you are getting ready for using gear (squat suit, etc), I think you would find that your stronger overall leg strength moving them in. You almost look like a sumo squatter... unless of coarse, you are really trying to work on your hamstring and your hip abductors?? or maybe it's just the angle of the vid?
