    ME bench

    stretching and foam rolling

    Floor press, very narrow grip:
    bar x 10
    135 x 5
    185 x 3
    225 x 1
    245 x 0

    as i said before, floor press is weak. had to take a real close grip because my elbows were hitting the rack. i've got a long journey ahead of me with benching

    rolling DB extension:
    35's x 10
    45's x 10
    55's x 10

    reverse green band pulldown, 3 x 10

    face pulls:
    70 x 10
    85 x 10
    100 x 10

    shrugs, hook grip:
    225 x 10
    275 x 10
    315 x 10

    20 min elliptical


    got some work ahead of me with benching.

    tried on my king suit, it fits good, VERY tight in the legs. i will keep it, pull in it a few times to loosen it up, then try pulling with my vikings under it. i might have to duct tape my briefs to my legs, then put the suit on. i am going to test the suit out tomorrow after speed squats. i will work up to 405 or something like that, not too heavy.

    Man, you've been putting up some good numbers. The benching could use some work but overall you've come a long way. Nice job bro.

    Fuck, fight, or hold the light.

    thanks Chubs, appreciate you stopping by. if i put the time into my bench that i do into my squat, it might be halfway decent.

    your height + narrow grip = a long floor press, nice job.

    DE squat/dl

    *stretching and foam rolling*

    reverse hypers:
    1 plate x 10
    2 plates x 10
    3 plates x 10

    speed box squats to parallel box in viking briefs & belt:
    135 x 2
    225 x 3 x 2
    275 x 2 x 2

    deads in king sumo DL suit:
    135 x 3
    225 x 3
    275 x 1 (add belt and straps up on this set)
    315 x 1
    455 x 1

    GHR:
    BW x 10
    BW + light band x 2 x 10

    hangman abs w/green:
    3 x 15

    20 min on bike


    turned out a bit much for DE day, but i wanted to see what kind of damage i could do in that king suit. i literally pull 135 and don't even know its in my hands. 455 felt like 275. this is with no briefs, this suit is gangsta. i will lay off the damn deadlifting for awhile now. i will pull a couple more times in it to break it in before i try and add briefs. the legs are SO TIGHT.

    we might squat on a REAL power rack thursday. this means i won't have to walk the weight 10 feet back out of the entire thing. might go straight weight, might go reverse mini bands since we will have the rack to do it on.

    Here is lones deadlifting in his suit.

    Video





    Hey Lones, go over to irontrybe and tell vicki she needs to let me post her video. She is all worried how she looks. I think that was a wicked lift and needs to be shared.
