OK here come the motherload of updates

ME Squat Day

Pulled conventional today, been wanting to see how this lift has been going with all the progress made on GMs etc. Anyways pulled a couple PRs with much better form than I usually exhibit on a conventional deadlift! Moved to zercher split squats next nope these are out, I get the most violent headache after doing them. Finished with orange band Rev hypers for reps. Pretty tired after this, will trash abs today after work.

ME Squat Day 24/5/10

Conv Deadlift
1x1 170kg
1x1 177.5kg (PR Smokeshow)
1x1 180kg (PR Grinder)

Man my conventional is weak, I wonder how my sumo is doing nowdays???................

Went very well I hit a nice double and a single, finished with 2 triples and did some very CG benching with the EZ bar, really focused on pushing the bar toward my feet to keep tension on the tris.Finished with 3 sets of rows, back is still wrecked from deadlifts on Monday.

Do you feel that the board pressing helps your overall pressing?

I was just reading through Jim Wendler's 5/3/1 and he says since most raw lifters need work on the bottom of their lift and not the top that board pressing and bands and chains isn't suited to them.

Unless of course you compete with a shirt but I didn't think you did?

Just curious.

I am crazy weak at lockout, thats where I miss, always.

So boards help me a tonne, but if I sucked off the chest that would be a diff story altogether. I do feel that singles off boards dont help alot, maybe not enough TUT? so i usually do reps of 2+ on all non full ROM movements.Also speed work is imporatant for getting that bar off the chest, maybe thats why I dont have too much trouble off the chest and suck at lockout?

Either way bands are the bomb for your squat, I feel there isnt much better for training the squat, whether you are weak in the bottom (like most raw guys) or at the top.They taech you to really accelerate throughout the lift.

Just my 2c

I like your ideas. They seem to make a lot of sense. It's not just I do this because this dood told me to. lol

Keep up the good work.
