As of early 2013, we are still in the process of rebooting unto the new platform

If you want to keep track of the relaunch you can:

  1. Like us on Facebook
  2. Follow us on Twitter
  3. Send me (Kris) an e-mail and let me know that you'd like to join the new site when it is ready.

Once we are ready to relaunch, we will start spreading the word. Until then, expect silence to mean we are heads down coding. :) The forum is still open for active members, but don't expect a lot of activity here since meets are currently on hold.

I also did some light form work on the squat.  I missed my squat workout on tuesday cause I wasn't feeling all that great so I decided to add a little something to today.

SQUAT:
3x1 @ 315 lbs
2x1 @ 385
1x1 @ 405
1x1 @ 425 <-- added belt
0x1 @ 455
2x1 @ 405

LOW BOX PAUSE SQUATS:
3x5 @ 225 lbs

PULL-THRUS:
12x3 @ super-mini band

Thought I would try out some low box pause squats and really focus on driving straight up out of the hole.  I think this is the problem I am having with my form: I think when I'm coming out of the hole I'm leaning forward and then pushing back and coming up, which is really adding to the distance I have to push the bar (plus the extra energy I'm wasting).

My hips def. felt the low box pause squats, that's for sure, hopefully they'll help with the form issues, we'll see.  455 actually felt somewhat light, didn't get the lift, but it didn't pin me either, so we'll see what happens next week with that.

BENCH:
5x2 @ 307 lbs

CG BENCH:
5x2 @ 271 lbs

INCLINE DB PRESS:
5x2 @ 100 lb dbs

SIDE LATERAL RAISES:
10x2 @ 40 lb db

Bench felt nice and solid today, very hard nonetheless, especially the last set of 5.  I've never done anything over 300 for reps before, so this is a good PR.

good job with the PR.

How are you satisfied with your new training approach so far?

I think it is working very well for me.  I'm sort of sporadic with the squat training cause I'm not sure how I want to set that up yet, but just working up to something heavy and then doing some assistance stuff is what I'll do for now, atleast up until the March meet.

SQUATS:
2x1 @ 315 lbs
1x1 @ 385 lbs
2x1 @ 455 lbs
1x0 @ 465 lbs
2x1 @ 385 lbs

PAUSED BOX SQUATS:
2x8 @ 315 lbs

FRONT SQUATS:
3x2 @ 225 lbs

BAND ASSISTED GHR:
8x2

I got the 465 but was a couple inches above parallel, so I didn't count it.  However, I did bang out a couple reps with 455 so was pretty happy about that.  The GHR's are not on a GHR bench, I just use my bench and put my calves under the foot pad and lower myself down a little past parallel and back up again.

465 lbs ~ 210 kg. Good stuff. Did you use belt and/or knee wraps? Or did you go completely raw.
I will test maxes tommorow and Friday in my club with knee wraps and belt but no suit, or anything else. Your results give me great motivation.

The 455 and 465 were done with a belt.  I have knee wraps, but haven't even worn them once yet.  Maybe next Squat day I'll wrap up and see what I hit.
