And l-o-fucking-l at the phaggot that walks by, WATCHES ME SET UP THE CAMERA, then steps right in front of it to wiggle around with those plates in his hands.

And sorry for the angle on the last vid.

The dickwad PT that gave me shit for using chalk last week was in the area and video cameras are not allowed in the gym, so I had to hide it behind some equipment.

Just dropping in here to say congrats.  Nice lifting.  Our forms (and our weaknesses ) are similar.  We are both back pullers.  Work on involving the legs more and the weight will skyrocket!

Squaterday

Great workout overall, but squats were a mixed bag today.  Progressions sets were very good, almost a carbon copy of last week.  Was happy to get a 2nd rep @ 385 though, for the first time ever with no belt, and repeated the 4 plater with no belt again.  Top end and back-off sets just plain sucked.  I simply ran out of gas on these.  Lower back was toast.

Ham and Calf work was pretty good; walked out of there with all lower body muscles screaming for mercy.

Work was done.

Back & Traps

Had another solid back session today; forced myself to do some more weight on the pulldowns, getting 3 sets of 5 at 240, which is only one plate less than the whole stack.  Best I've ever done previously at this weight is 3 measly reps.

Rest of the workout was pretty much a carbon copy of last week; and I'm more than OK with that.

Power Friday

Last week was pretty goddam epic and I honestly didn't know how I was going to do better this week; but somehow I managed.  :)

Added a rep @ 455 and 475 on the deads and added 10 lbs to the top set, getting a new strapless PR @ 535.

Also added a couple reps on the top 2 sets on leg press.

HOLY HELL  :D

495 x 1 (-1)

455 x 3

Only one back-off set today; I was spent on these.


Leg Press

(includes sled weight; sticker says the sled weighs 118 lbs so I threw a 2.5lb plate on it and I'll call it 120)

All reps on all sets slow, controlled, and right to the backstop.

480 x 10
570 x 10
660 x 10
750 x 10

Happy Friday, kids.  :D

you concentrating on form? Those looked a little better than last week.

Did you read the DL chapter in SS? Worth the time.
