8/2/10

Chinups x 16 reps, bodyweight @ 190-192.

+1 rep PR over my record at a lighter bodyweight. Edging in on 20 reps, my medium-term goal.

Heres the vid

And...

Did a strongman comp in Arizona the following weekend. Ended up 3rd in a tough group of guys. I was the top finishing amature, so I was pretty happy about that. Still need to improve on farmers and stones.

Here's that vid

Excuse me May I ask a question !…
Usually When you mention weight ( for example 100 lbs ) is it including bar weight or just the plates?

It's a 45lb bar plus plates. In this case however he is talking about dumbbells. Two dumbbells weighing 100 lbs each.

When I was originally doing my first push/pull/leg split, my Deadlift was 330x4. I injured my knee and basically stopped squatting and deadlifting for two months. When I came back I started doing ws4sb so I was doing more 3 weeks of squat, 3 weeks of DL and couldn't progress worth a damn. Got back to my 330lbs DL but that was it.

So I decided I would give Max-OT a fair try since I wanted to lift as much as I could before surgery. In 7 DL sessions I've jumped up to 370lbsx4. Hopefully next week when I test my 1rm I'll be able to hit 400lbs.

Also got my squat up from 230lbsx5 to 260lbsx4 in 6 weeks. Couldn't squat for 2 of those weeks due to knee issues. Looking forward to seeing what my 1rm is next week.

After jaw surgery and I get my knee scoped, I plan to get back and shoot for a 300lb squat and 400lb dl for reps.

This is all in about 20 months of lifting.

Bench press still sucks a big fat one. =/

Hey everybody, I broke my DL PR (290X1). My form was TERRIBLE, but I got it up.... I didn't think it was that bad until I watched the video. Here it is.... Pound me into the dirt.

Yeah, you should really really fix your form. You're doing more of a SLDL than a deadlift - and doing 1RM attempts on an Stiff-Leg Deadlift is just asking for trouble.

Angus--First, this is off topic for this thread, other than reporting a PR.

How about you start a new thread about the form check, and I'm sure several of us would be glad to give you some pointers. Please don't deadlift again until you see them!

495 Squat x 9

Thought it was ten, but miscounted. Some may have been a touch high, but I don't care. Enjoy the Black Label.

5 wheels is an awesome squat! They didn't look high to me. #4 hit parallel, and the others were all deeper. Great squats.

Thanks Doc! Although I have to admit, I use 100lb plates. So, it wasn't quite 5 wheels :lol:
