Did a nice little circuit today.

6 reps, 115 pounds, 5 sets
OH squat
BOR
Strict OH Press
Reverse Curl
Power Clean

Then used this new toy my gym got, the Grappler, made by Westside Barbell. Its awesome.

Did alternating presses with it with a plate on each bar
2x10
Core Twists
3x20
Rows
4x10 (threw on 2 more plates)

I heartily accept the motto, "That government is best which governs least"; and I should like to see it acted up to more rapidly and systematically.

How hard were those OH Squats? How deep are they? Do you just OH Press into them and then widen your grip?

I'm curious because I just started doing OH Squats again and they are an awesome lift, especially for the core and shoulder stability/flexibility.

No, it is something I have worked with my trainer on, so I get low with my arms up and then unrack it, I try to go ATG but my hip flexibility is utter shit so they are probably a few inches above ATG but below parallel. Yea I love them too, well it is love hate, but they always torch my traps and forearms a lot too. I would love to be able to OH squat my BW someday.

Sorry Wukka, I meant to say they are not to hard. Aint easy though.

Did farmers walks and bag throws today

100 lbs
50 feet up 50 feet back=1
did 10

Bag is 80 pounds, 10 throws is 1 set, did 10 sets
each throw was probably 5 feet-7 feet.

Very quick workout, only 30 seconds breaks between sets, my forearms and traps and just annihilated.

Did strict press with the trainer and set a all time PR on deads

Bunch of warming up stuff and activation before hand

Press
95x6
115x6
135x6
155x6
175x6
195x6
205x4 (failed on the 5th)

SUMO deads
135x3
225x3
315x3
405x2
455x1! Most weight I've ever moved. Felt awesome, my whole back and glutes and legs are absolutely torched. It was a really tough lift, took probably about 10-15 seconds to get up but it was f*cking awesome. Used chalk on it.

My trainer has straps so he said next time in ~a month or so when I max again we will use them if my grip fails.
I hope everyone is well.

I say your next goal should be 5 plates(495), which I imagine you'll be hitting pretty soon. *cries*

Nice. Your deadlift is almost double mine (nah, j/k)! Strong ass lifting, man.

I just hit a 300 lb DL.. The things I'd do to have that strength in my back. My base sucks, give me yours.
