You sandbagging those bench numbers pausing that last set? How's the inclines treating you? Thinking about adding them in the next cycle, maybe something similar to what you are doing...but no joker sets of course haha.

Nice, Sprints and TUT Rows. Did you remember to time your meal and reps. Its where dem gains are at  ;)

Bench reps look good too I guess ;D


OH BTW did you get those high potency NOW fishoils? If so are you burping up whole fish? I put the big jug of the lower EPA/DHA I had in the freezer. Didn't do shit, still gagging on fishy brups :o

No I bought another brand. Im shocked the freezer trick didnt work., Those things must really be fishy!

Thanks, Brad. On my grind.

No sand bagging here. I used the numbers I should have but you know how it goes with JC. Starts out light for reps before shit gets real. Inclines are good. Ill keep those light but hard enough to get some benefit.

I read sprints?  Excellent :)

Yes- sprints actually help my legs recover pretty well. Plus if I ever have to run from a tiger Ill be ready!


Looks like I'm starting right up the 22nd, love some incline.

Cool. I have a busy week that week- Grandparents coming for a couple days, Friday that week going to Tupper Lake until Saturday but still need to get training in so we will find a way!

I get that lowbar is comfortable for some people - but good greif, your lowbar is in a place a barbell was never meant to be. Always surprised when that thing doesn't roll off of you.
cash me on the platform, how bow dah?

Band work looks interesting, nothing like the addition of MOAR gravity to make a squat more pleasurable lol.
Hard session and if Ed didn't do front squats.... Faakem!

How much did the green bands add to deads?

Enjoy the grandparents. Wish ours wood fly over.

I dunno about shoulders with fs John. My shoulder on the left is far worse than yours. So unsure as to why it hurts.

I might post a vid on the tube for you in the next few days. See if it makes any kind of difference.

You could just use cheap dl straps through the bar and hold the wrist material above the bar for stabillity.

The bands are fun. Hopefully they make me a bit more explosive.

That's the unload of strength, you went for something beyond your ability in order to stretch your ability.

Another beauty pressing session. You don't fail often…but I do like to see it in here once in a while.  Strong Tim presses and big row volume with those bigazz DB's.  Gonna get me some "fluffy" as well, sitting here with a bellie full of pizza topped off with a chocolate/peanut butter proton shake  8)
See you at the squat paaardy at 8:30pm sharp!

I couldn't even think of squatting today. Im pretty beat up after the first week of JC. Trained 6 days with today being the only day off and the start of week 2 tomorrow with those dreaded EMOM squats :flame:

Enjoy the party weekend!!

Helluva good day under the bar John  :)

Thanks Eric. I haven't DB rowed in a while. Ive been BB rowing so surprised how well they moved. If I wasnt so tired I should have added another ten to each side but I sandbagged it.

Ha maybe true. I don't fail often and really try to stay within my abilities but the program has that max rep set and I got 10 in my head and wanted it. Safeties work though!

Hey DNG- Sorry I missed the question above about the bands. They are 65lb of resistance for whatever thats worth. They are here- http://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-monster-bands
