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.

eBox-e Squattu (14" box)
140x5
190x3
230x3
270x3
310x3
340x1 (PR +5lbs - pretty easy)
350x1 (+15lbs - still not hard)
360x1 (+25lbs - slow but solid)
370x1 (+35lbs - Pretty slow but still not a max)
320x4 (PR +5lbs, +1 rep)

Dead Incline press from chest
140x5
160x3
180x3
200x3
215 3x3 sets (PR + 2 sets)

Bent Over BB row to Chest (wide grip)
140x5
190x5
230 5x2 sets

Good Session.  Weight felt light on the back, in the hole is where the weakness lies.  Did good keeping chest out, elbows forward and head up.

I think I could have tripled 220-225 today for one set, but I wanted 9 or ten reps so I took 215.

Was going to do foam board close grip presses, but the above seemed like enough for today.

Big day!

High Anderson Squats(pin 6 - 4" abv parallel)
140x5
210x5
250x3
300x3
340x3
370x3 (PR +1 rep)
410x2 (PR +1 rep)
430x1 (PR +20lbs)
375x5 (PR +30lbs @ 5 reps)

Reverse Band Presses (1 mini - 40 off bottom none off top)
110x5
130x3
145x3
160x3
180x3
200x2
210x1 (push press - feh)
200x2
180x5

Strict Press
140x8,12 (pr +5 lbs @ 12 reps)

Hepburn rows a.k.a "cheater rows"
140x5
230x3
260x3
280x3,3,3

2bd Manpon CG Bench press
140x10
230x6,6

Squats: Woo. Hoo. Buddy. I was feeling strong, but I didn't know if it was 20 lbs strong or not. This was easier than the 410 I did for a single last time I did these. Started too far forward, but managed to pull it out. The 375x5 also felt easier than the 345x5 from last time.

Banded Presses: Don't like these. I prefer elevated pin presses. They feel more honest and I can tell better what the carryover is with straight weight than I can with bands. That said, this band setup worked better than the last one. Since they didn't feel honest, I went ahead and did straight presses for reps.

Cheater rows: Since there are no BB rowing competitions, I'm going to do whatever rows I feel help my back get stronger. These work.

Great session!

I'm sitting just this side of 200 lbs. I'm making a concerted effort tomorrow to get over the line. It's one of this year's goals

The others were/are

500 DL (check)
400 SQ (probably, 375 from the bottom and a 395 full squat before Hepburn's program screwed me, so...check)
300 FS (290 from bottom, so with stretch reflex engaged...Check)
300 BP (nope, not even close)
200 OHP (frustratingly close, still got 7 days)

Upper body gets a concentrated block next. Get this shoulder online for real, 'steada half-ass rehabbing it and make some monster triceps.

BW: 200lbs (PR!)
 
Standing Overhead Press
barx15
100x5
120x5
140x3
160x3
170x2
180x1
190x1 (PR +2.5lbs)
170x5 (PR +2.5lbs or +2 reps)

Sumo DL
225x5
315x5
405x3
475x1 (PR +5 lbs)
495x1 (PR +25lbs)

Deficit DL (conv. 6" deficit)

Chest Supported Row
215x6
225 6x2 sets

Close grip Floor Press
225 4x3 sets

BB Curl
135x5,3

Wasn't feeling it today for OHP's but I went for it anyway.  @ 190 the Lockout was slow, but came off the shoulders pretty good.  Managed to keep it close to my face or else it wouldn't have gone.

My sumos are basically wide-stance stiff legged DLs, but they do the freakin job.  495 was very slow and I almost gave up on it at the bottom, but I could feel it still moving so I kept pulling.  Definitely couldn't see anything, vision - or my attention to it - totally cut out.  The deficit deads took me till the second set to really engage the glutes so my low back was better supported.

Notes

I HAD that 405.  I was coming out of the hole and my hips got ahead of my shoulders and over it went.  I took it down slow, held it and came out of the hole no problem.  A wider stance and really getting my head up will fix it.  I'll grow from the 385 and the 345x5 so no worries.

Had nothing for upper body push.  The 3x3 last night torched my shoulders for the day.

Happy with GMs.  Felt strong on the 295.

Next year's targets:

BP 315
SQ 450
FS 350
DL 575
OHP 225

BW 210-215

Or else take training in a whole new direction. I've been itching to do some strongman stuff or else become a kettlebell whore.

Overhead Press
120x5
140x12 (missed the 13th rep, couldn't lock out)

230x3
280x3
320x3

Stopped there. Feeling overdone. Couldnt even move the 440 off the pins. The 410 felt pretty good though. I walked about 2+ miles yesterday on a family museum trip and my bum hip/leg always makes that more stressful than it ought to be. Not bad, considering.
