    took off briefs, put on v-type

    DE box squats, all sets done with straps down & green bands choked at bottom of rack, parallel:
    135 x 3 x 2
    315 x 2 x 2
    365 x 2 x 2

    sumo deads w/mini bands quadrupled around rack:
    bar x 3 x 2
    95 x 3 x 2
    155 x 2 x 2

    sit ups, 3 x 8


    the briefs pissed me off tonight, my knuckles were bleeding i was pulling on them so hard. those deads were pretty tough, i was pulling the power rack off the ground. oh well, tomorrows a new week. i'm gonna take a week or so off from bands, my joints are KILLING me.
    Nice work bro. Very good to see the bodyweight going up, but you still gotta eat if you wanna catch TommyBoy. You gotta love the sore joints with Westside.

    Joint pain is the worst I like that pulling with the quad minis though, it adds a ****ton of tension eh!

    haha word. i've been putting on some pretty good mass with that shake. i ordered opticen for when i run out of maximus, im still probably going to make it in milk and w/PB. i think after my meet i'm going to switch it to water, and make some sort of Anatrop/waxy maize drink for pre/during workouts. no reason really, i just like to switch it up and see what works. confirmation on sunday's squat workout too, i'm going over to cell block. its a 2 1/2 hour drive, and they are squatting at 9. im gonna have to get up early, but im used to it. i definetely think it'll be worth it to get the tips and actually squat on a monolift. i'm going to try to figure out my attempts then too. i want to be prepared for this meet.
