If I can do the same 10x1 with 455# come april, I'll be very happy.

death quad workout

back squats working up to a top set, i think i did 325x10. then a widowmaker right away of 185x20.

did this hammer strength unilateral leg press, felt awesome. worked up to a top set of 5 plates per leg

then i did a seated leg press close stance- worked up to 370lbs

did some calves. this new gym has an awesome calf machine, never used a calf machine that was as good as this.

i started the workout at 6:30, ended at ~730, and now its 8:45 and im finally starting to get my appetite back. still light headed though. it was the most brutal leg workout i have ever done, i think because i had a training partner this time.

Back when I was doing 5/3/1 a bunch, I would come pretty close to passing out during the rep-out sets of squats after I finally got to some heavier weights. Tinnitus, light headedness, dizziness, fuzzy vision, the works. It was ****ing awesome.

Forgot that I hadn't even posted yet.

9/16- Bench #9

Bench- 2x3@230
Wide grip press- 6x1@175, 1x8@135
Pullup/face pull superset- a bunch

Notes: The set of eight was with a three second pause at the top; I'm trying to work on my stability at the top of the movement, as that's definitely where I'm weakest at. The pullups were triples with different grips and the face pulls were sets of ten. No idea how many sets I did; it had to be at least eight.


And now, for some videos that I just got uploaded today:



Note my absolutely ****ty depth for my work sets. I need to get used to squatting with knee wraps again. That first work set was god awful.



Still need to pause for longer.



These felt so ****ty, but look a lot faster than they felt. I later realized that the bar I was using was bent, which may have been contributed to why they felt like ****. Protip: don't lift using bent bars. And no, I cannot teach you how to lift while upside down.

Continuing the belt discussion from last thread -

Not trying to sound like a hardass or anything. You can set your core and create enough intra-abdominal pressure to handle a pretty damn high amount of weight. When training athletes, we deff do not want them to think of a belt as a crutch in their weightlifting program. Too many of them already try to get a belt before they even hit 80% of their max. For guys squatting in the high 400's or 500's, then it's a different story. But other than that, just lift. If you don't have a back injury, then the belt isn't really going to add any safety. Natural compression from taking a big breath and setting your core > artificial compression from a belt. Can a belt help you lift heavier weights? Yes. But I am concerned with training athletes, and I'd rather them lift the weight without the extra aid if they can do it safely.

I'm in the business of lifting as much as I possibly can, so there is little reason for me to not use a belt. As long as my equipment is within the rules, you bet your *** I'm going to use it. If somebody else wants/doesn't want to use a belt, fine. Plenty of strong guys don't use a belt, or wraps, or whatever. Jamie Lewis just totaled 1705 with no wraps or belt. At the same meet he was in, there were tons of other huge lifts that came wrapless or beltless. Strong is strong.

Worst day in the gym...probably ever
Warm up felt like ****
Lat pulldown felt like ****, stopped after 3 sets
Deadlifts felt like ****, 405x5 was difficult.
Failed on 455 WHAT THE ****.

Left after that.

I agree completely.. through out HS I lifted with a belt. Once I got to college our strength and conditioning coach would let us use them. Took about a year to fell confident w/o one.. but now I can't go back. Also should point out in HS we did true 1rm, in college we did multi rep maxes.
