thanks, that will give me a rough idea about how much extra to throw on there.

I would strongly suggest testing out, not just throwing 30 lbs on.

For me it's about 10% of my max. Actually a bit less.

How much extra do you think you get out of the slingshot? I just started using one and am kind of curious how it relates to a true 1RM

That is a killer lifting session Ron. I'd love to run that program but I just don't have time over lunch and the gym where I have a membership doesn't have the right equipment.  Once the wife is gainfully employed again I think it's time for a garage gym.
I alternate each week on the speed squats. One week I'll do 2ct pause at the bottom of the hole and the next week I'll do a 5ct descend and then power up.
I really like working out at home now.  At first, i was worried a little about staying motivated, but now it's no problem at all.  The Gold's that I used to lift at has since closed down but it was basically a Planet Fitless without all the purple shit.  Not many hardcore choices near me except for Brian Alsruhe's Neversate strongman gym but I was feeling like I was in the way with them always running yokes up back and forth in front of the squat racks.


SBD in every session. No stone unturned in this program. Looking great Ron

Great to see the slingshot.  Which one did you get?

I got the red one

Awesome work Andrew!  Squats are looking real strong man!  Slingshot pressing is fun.  I haven't used my reactive model in a while.

Thanks man!

At least you get to enjoy what you wake up early for.  I just wake up early for work. :'(

Really getting up early is not the hard part.  The hard part is having the discipline to go to bed early enough.
