    Good, tough workout. The 551 deadlift felt pretty good. I'm following a program now where I alternate weekly with 5 rep rest-pauses and heavy singles, bumping the weight up each week. I'm planning to go for 600 right around New Years. I was happy I managed to get the 182x3 snatch + overhead squats.

    Lynn is gone to Miami for a few days at a conference, so I'll be getting the rest of my exercise for the next three days from strippers.

    Thanks. It took a good while. About 2 years for me. Might be different for you. Who knows? I'm hoping to hit 600 about the end of this year. That's my goal. So it will have taken about 16 months to go from 550-600, though injury sidelined me for about 4-5 months of that time. It might take me another year and half to two years after that to hit 650.

    Tomorrow I'm going to have to squat and bench since I won't be able to squat tonight. Damn night meetings for work!

    Comments:
    I combined my leg day with my bench day since I missed Monday's usual leg day. It was tough and took a long time, but I still had a good day, nonetheless. My bench was ON. I was only going to do 3x3 but after the 3x280 I felt like I had more, so decided to bump it up 5 more lbs and see if I could do it. I did and it felt great. I feel like I might finally be making progress on my bench again.

    I back squatted again and didn't have much back pain except a little in my right hip. That's an improvement over last week.

    I picked up Lynn from the airport last night after she got back from Miami. I'm glad she's home.

    It's this newfangled thing they have at my gym. It's a power rack with this pulley thing that attaches on each side of the bar. It's hooked up to an air pressure system that you can adjust with these foot pedal on each side of the bottom of the rack (+ for higher resistance, - for lower). It's supposed to maintain a constant force through the ROM, so it's somewhat comparable to using bands in that it increases the difficulty at the top of the ROM. It's a bit more precise and adjustable, however.

    This is what it looks like:

    Wow... that's actually pretty cool. Sounds like an expensive attempt to replicate band/chain benching in the gym!

    It's not bad except it sucks for squatting wide. There are foot pedal things on each side of the bottom of the rack for adjusting the air pressure that get in the way of your feet if you have them out very wide, which is where I usually have them when I squat. Thankfully we have another power rack that is just a standard one so I just squat in that, usually.

    You're telling me. It costs almost $7,000 to buy one. Apparently for the University cost is no object.

    My deads felt like crap till I did my second rest pause dead with 507. Then it seemed like they got easier and easier. Strange how that is. Good workout overall, though.

    Today I'm going to watch Illinois-Ohio State in football and then going to see Quantum of Solace. If it's anything like Casino Royale was it will be awesome.

    7,000 is crazy for that thing!

    my stance is about 6 inches wider than i can take on the power rack at my gym (i squat very wide, feet ~ an inch from the sides of the monolift), boy does that get on my nerves.

    Comments:
    Front squats felt really good tonight. I think I might be good for 305-315 next time I try for a 1RM. I'm kind of excited about my bench lately. I'm thinking I might go for some heavy doubles this Wednesday, maybe as heavy as 295-300 for a double.

    Some of my fellow powerlifting friends went to WABDL Worlds this past weekend. I'm wondering how they did. Did John get that 700 bench he was going for? Did Nick get that 660 deadlift? Did Roger set that Masters World Record bar a little bit higher? On top of that I'm a little bit jealous they got to go to Vegas for it. I'm dying to go somewhere warm because it's only been winter weather for a week but I'm tired of it already.
