yeah the holding on is what's scaring me, I've been doing them from a hang and getting the weight up there is lots of fun; it's a satisfying lift. As I load the weight on the bar though I've come close to dropping it a few times. I fear for my kneecaps.

My wife was in the hospital last week. Nothing serious, but I had to pick up my son immediately after work, so I didn't have any time to lift. Today I picked up where I left off. My squat was a little off, but my straight-leg deadlift was strong (New PR!).

Thanks. 405 lbs for 5 reps should be right around the corner.

PS) I've decided to try doing high pulls with wrist straps later this week, so I'm currious to see how that goes.

I went up to two sets of 275 lbs for 5 reps on Barbell High Pulls today. Now I'm really looking foreward to testing my 1RM.

Matt I'm sure it's in here somewhere, but I figure it might just be easier to ask since there's a few pages worth of stuff, but...

What are your stats?

You and I have pretty similar lift numbers in almost every area (literally 10-20lbs off on 90% of your lifts, from what I've read)

Age/Height/Weight/BF(if known)/Years training, if I could ask? :)

I'm assuming you're a natty, as well.

I hadn't done Push Presses since April, so I knew I was due for a new PR, but I wasn't expecting to do as well as I did.

I've decided to start training Squats and Deadlifts on seperate days. I'm going to do Barbell Back Squats with Barbell Walkouts and Barbell High Pulls in Workout A, and Overhead Squats, Straight-leg or Standard Deadlifts (depending on rep range) and Barbell Holds in Workout C. See workout journal for comments.

I tried a new warmup yesterday at the end of my workout, before doing my static stretches.

A) One set of Overhead Squats (15 reps) with a 60 lb barbell.

B) Right hand. 1 One-hand Barbell Snatch + 3 One-hand Barbell Overhead Squats repeated 5 times (5 snatches and 15 squats) with a 30 lb barbell.

C) Repeat B for left hand.

Then, after stretching I tried some light Barbell Bent Presses.

My doctor suggested today that I become a vegetarian. He also said there's no evidence a high-protien diet is important for building and maintaining muscle mass or strength. What the hell?

Where I come from(the internet), we'd call that "epic fail."
