    Comments:

    Nothing particularly spectacular about the session but it was solid nonetheless. I've made the decision to not pull too heavy until I can fix this pulling problem I've developed. If I don't put some focus on it at some point, it's just going to keep getting worse. I'll probably have a lot of sessions where I pull weights that are a good bit less than my max. I'll probably rely on some heavy rack pulls and RDLs to keep my lower back and hammys up to par. Didn't feel like squatting to depth today so I did some rack squats. Found it a bit hard to get into position so some of the sets were pretty awkward. Didn't go at it too hard. This session surprisingly hit my hamstrings pretty hard.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Comments:

    Pretty decent pressing. Still getting this odd, weak feeling in my left arm while pressing. Only gets to me right when the bar reaches my chest. I'll try and beef up my upper back and see how it goes. OH pressing felt decent. The chins felt pretty good as well. Overall, nothing too special but solid all the way around.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    Somewhat short, but very good workout for me. Hammered the rack pulls. I think I'm good for at least 405 at that height and on that rack. I bang the crap out of my knees, so as long as I can clear them, I'm good. Tried to hold an arch as good as possible. Did a pretty good job at it. Got quite a few looks haha. Had the biggest guy in there come over and barely pick it up and then talk about how damn heavy it was. I wanted to tell him that if he ever pulled he'd kill me, but oh well haha. Squatting was feeling pretty good. Lower back tweaked a bit on the last set so I bailed and didn't push it any farther. Overall a solid session today.

    Comments:

    Very strong session today for me. It was my sis' birthday, and we went out to eat, so I almost didn't workout. I was going to take the day off, but when we got home, I decided I wanted to lift. Decided during my warmups that I wanted to hit a single instead of triples. With the way 295 felt, there's no doubt I would've hit 285 for 3 today. 305 was pretty dag on close, but unracking it takes so much out of me and leaves me in such a bad position. I had to try and muscle it instead of using any decent form. With an unrack, I would've smoked it. The DB Rows went quite well. Hit a solid PR. By the time I got to the Pin Presses and Pull Aparts, I was shot. Overall a great session.



    Got my briefs in as well. Ended up having to get a size 40. Stupid wide hips. I can still barely get them on, but I think they'll be good. Looking forward to squatting in them.

    WOW. That's all I can say. Finally got my size 40 briefs in and got into them. They cut the crap out of my legs. Felt like I had a tourniquet wrapped around them. Freakin crazy. I couldn't hit depth for crap if I fought the briefs. They also wanted to push my hips under. I stopped after 275. Felt like something was pulling in my right leg, and the pain was gettin crazy anytime I approached depth. I also had a pounding headache that wasn't helping out any. I'll take things slowly with the briefs. It'll be interesting to see how things go.

    Did you use a belt or no? Briefs are like night and day with and without a belt on. A good pair of tight briefs won't allow you to break with low weights. Were you able to train with anyone? You should go and train with Homeyield if you have the chance. Gear is definitely weird and if you don't have people there with you it's even weirder.

    nice squatting with those breifs dude. they should take some getting used to. take some ibproufen before your workout and it should help with the headaches, normally what i do when i down a couple caffeine pills. also will help with any pain the breifs give you. good luck with em dude!

    Chris-I went with a belt on the last two sets. It's definitely going to take some getting used to. I've gotta travel back to SC so I can train with Homey and Izak again.

    Lones-Haha yea I could've used some more pain med. I took some advil but it didn't do anything for me.

    Aside from them feeling like a bitch, how was the pop?

    I just ordered some ace briefs, and I am excited to see just how good multi ply metal stuff is compared to their single ply stuff.

    The pop was definitely there. They really want to screw with your arch and what not though, so you're really going to have to fight the suit. I didn't go with the Ace, simply because they're just too much material. Even HomeYield was saying he felt that the briefs were too much for him, and that he should've gone with the Pros. It's going to take a crap load of weight to get to depth with those Ace Briefs, so definitely be ready for that.

    Thanks for the info. I am expecting it to be a bitch to get depth in the briefs, and looking forward to it

    Nice work with the briefs Chub.

    Sid- I have the viking briefs and they're quite badass. I can't imagine how gangsta the ace briefs will be.

    Ahhhh. My bench is definitely there. Right now, if I can get it moving, it's going up. The Reverse Band BP has definitely helped out with my raw benching. I thought about attempting 275 but I'll wait for a bit on that. My goal is 295 by Jan 1st. I think I have a legit shot at it. Pretty stoked about the pressing today. My back has been killing me lately. Dad said it is a possible disc problem. I'm going to quit pulling for a bit, at least anything other than light speed work. I'll alter my session quite a bit tomorrow as well. Because of it, I didn't feel like doing any DB rows today. Threw in some extra sets of chins. Overall a solid workout for me, and I have high hopes for my pressing.
