ALOT

The way John over at IAs explains it is to get your ass just grazing the bench, so not off the bench totally but drive the hips and ass real hard to get the leg drive to the bar.

It confused the shit out of me too until I spoke with him about it over the phone.

BW is at about 80-85kg give or take and I am about 5' 10 or 5' 11

ME Squat Day

My new velocity suit arrived and I was itching to test it out, I worked up raw to 325lbs then threw it on and made bigger jumps, ended up hitting 506lbs for a single, but as I dragged the bar up my legs my left thumb got caught on the suit and threw me forward, I recovered enough to try salvage the lift, I might not have been upright enough looking at the vid.I felt like I got it at the time but not sure.Did a few raw singles with 375-395 with short rest and did SSB GMs next for reps. Finished with V ups and band leg curls.

DE Squat Day

First day of the raw wave went a bit hard! I have had an enourmous workload this week working double shifts etc and had not slept much this week at all. I used 220lbs and a red band for doubles which felt slow but looked ok on vid. After that felt sick as a dog so i went in and called it a day.Work better slow down soon cos I'll quit my job before I have another squat workout like that shit.

DE Squat Day 25/2/11

Box Squat + Red Band

10x2 100kg


DE Bench Day

Was feeling good today, so I just kept working up everything was feeling strong so I took a shot at 117.5kg and splat! A big fat miss!! What a bitch my bench is still going nowhere fast.Really pissed off at this point so I did some TUT floor pressing and some tricep work, threw some light rowing in at the end for shits n giggles.

ME Squat Day

Hit sumos again this week with the goal of hitting a few singles at around the 90% + mark of last week, just getting some heavy practice in my gear.I hit singles with around 470-475lbs. These were heavy enough today LOL I moved to SSB GMs next which were feeling great until my 2nd workset with 90kg and I felt a little something in my mid back so I stopped there, no sense in risking anything nasty. Finished with abs, a good day all up.

ME Squat Day 28/2/11

Sumo In Suit

Straps Down

1x1 189kg
1x1 204kg (PR???)

Straps Up (2 mins rest between sets)

4x1 214kg
1x1 216.5kg

SSB GMs

A LOT of sets up to 90kg x5

Janda Situps

2x10 +11.25kg

I discovered a few things that help with my deadlift lockout issues so I’ll be working that hard, mostly its setup issues, last night I noticed cos the gear is tight I get my shoulders behind the bar and try sink my hips too low, lots of dimels and db swings along with some banded rack pulls for me the next few months I think.

ME Bench Day

I used paused bench today for ME work, goal was basically to hit some quality reps at 90+%, I got some good work in which at this point is what I’ll concentrate on until I sign with John. Top set today was at 112.5kg, a shade under my old PR. I moved to DB presses for reps after then finished with chins at various grips. Pretty good day I guess.

ME Bench Day 2/3/11

Paused Bench Wide Grip

1x3 100kg
1x2 105kg
1x1 110kg
1x1 112.5kg
1xM 115kg ( i would have got this with a liftoff, came loose unracking)
1x2 105kg


Paused Hammer DB Press

1x11 30kg ea
1x18+9 RP 20kg ea slow negs

Chins

DOH Grip
3x5 BW

CG UH Grip
3x6 + 5kg
3x5 +7.5kg

I have a bit of a plan for bench the next 3 weeks. I will be running paused bench on ME days waving the total amount of lifts at 90+% up and down and run speed band bench on DE days.I’ll keep DE days very light and fast with heavy shoulder work as the supplemental lift.

DE Squat Day

Change of pace for a few weeks is in order, gonna hit bands but I'll use reverse bands instead, also doing alot more raw work until adding the briefs.Today I worked up to 160kg raw then threw the briefs on and reversed yellow bands, I worked up to? yikes I'll have to check my log but I think it was around 220kg? anyways reverse bands are dope, they dont fuck with your groove at all, I like em alot.Moved to split squats next then hit up seated ssb gms, these are golden and will be worked hard for a while.Damn good day, hips are feeling the raw work tho!

I believe I saw a 500+lb DL in there... nice!

I also believe I saw you were going for maximal effort singles on DE day.... isn't that dynamic effort day? Slightly confused.

Thanks Dub

DE day is squat day, sometimes I use max effort work on that day, ME day is when I usually pull, sometimes pull ME sometimes I do it after another ME movement ike GMs etc.

FWIW you can definatley use ME work on a DE day sometimes and its very beneficial as Its usually lower volume so you get a sort of deload effect.
