Your deadlift pr looked like an opener.  The ss makes me want to shake the dust off mine and go bro lift.

This morning I completed 531 Bastardo Peak (C28_4B) as follows:

Block Pulls   3-155, 3-205, 3-245, 3-275, 3-315, 3-335, 1-395, 2-415 (vid below)
     Note: All sets were Conventional 4" Block Pulls

Tri-set:
Pendlay Rows   3x5 @ 205
     Note: All sets were pulled from 4" Block Pulls
Hypers  10, 10, 10
DB BOLR 10-15, 10-15, 10-15

Bodyweight: 211.2 Pounds

Workout Duration: 47:19.51 mm:ss (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Good workout today.  Returned to block pulls this week to allow me to get work in without overdoing it on my back after the Deadlifts at the meet on Sunday.  Everything felt good and I worked up to a top double at 415.

After that I did an easy tri-set of 3 rounds of PRows, Hypers and DB BOLR, primarily aimed to loosen up my lats, low back, and shoulders ahead of tomorrow's bench workout.

Your deadlift pr looked like an opener.  The ss makes me want to shake the dust off mine and go bro lift. 

Thanks Tooth! :)  That final pull was suprisingly strong.  I think the various form mods I've made over the past several months are finally clicking and everything is starting to feel better.  I'm still trying to find my limit point for my 1RM right now.

It was definitely fun training with and competing with the SlingShot. :)  It is fun to push past your true raw max every once in a while.

What are you openers going to be for the next one?  I agree with tooth.  That dl flew up.

Thanks Dave. :)  At this point I'm thinking I'll open with my second lift from last time which was 413.  Then I'll move to 424 for my second and either 429 or 435 for my final if everything goes smooth.  That will also let me repeat 424 for my third if necessary.

This morning I completed 531 Bastardo Peak (C28_4C) as follows:

Superset:
Bench Press 3-145, 3-175, 3-205, 2-230, 1-260, 1-285, 1-310 (vid below)
Band Facepulls   4x25

CGBP   3x3 @ 230

Superset:
Multi-Grip Chins   3x6 @ BW
KB French Press   8-40, 8-40, 8-40

Bodyweight: 210.4 Pounds

Workout Duration: 39:00.01 mm:ss (with 1:00 rest between sets)

Great workout today.  It was short and to the point but I got in some good bench work.  I worked up to a new 1RM at 310 pounds.  After that I did backoff sets of 3x3 @ 230 on CGBP.  I finished up with 3 rounds of an easy chin/KB FP superset to loosen things up a bit.

My next workout will be a final heavy squat workout on Saturday at Untamed Strength. :)

Thanks Shawn. :)  Yeah I'm definitely trying to keep the specificity high like you mentioned previously.  I'm just over a week out now so I've got one more "heavy" workout then it's on to my 92% and 80% taper workouts (thanks Andrew) and then on to the meet on 1/27.  I'm thinking I should definitely be able to get 303 on bench in the meet and maybe 308.

congrats on the PR!

Thanks Andrew. :)
