Those first two sets where mainly speed oriented, not really going for heavy ass weight, I always thought that was considered DE, but it would not be the first time I was wrong.

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.

Ya well DE refers to Dynamic Effort, where you use sub-maximal weight and focus on speed, usually like 50-65%, but it's aimed at geared lifters mainly.

I feel like it's kind of pointless to do if you don't use gear, but it can be helpful to use if you are using bands or chains. You're also pretty damn strong, so DE might have more of a carry-over for you.

Usually though a DE movement will involve bands that changes the tension at a certain part of the lift, so the weight might be 250 pounds off your chest, but the bands will increase that weight to 315 at the lock-out portion of the lift.

Okay man I got ya, well I've got bands and chains, so next time, should I load it up to 225 with plates and then throw on like 30-50 lbs of chains or use medium bands? I appreciate it. Oh yea, I have 8 weeks of training in San Diego, so we will have to get a lift in. It wont be until 2010 in the earlier months, but if you are there we should definitely lift some heavy shit.

Hell yeah man, if you're in SD we will definitely have to lift some heavy shit together. And yeah, I would try to use bands/chains when you do DE work, and keep it at 6-10 sets of 2-3 reps. The idea behind DE work is you are activating your fast-twitch muscle fibers or some shit, which is kinda BS to me, but someone who has a good strength base, like yourself, could probably benefit from it. It might also help with your overall speed, and lockout power as well. I do like the idea of DE while using bands, because it forces you to move the weight faster, yet the lockout is still just as difficult.

I would also ask your coach guy about it too, I'm sure he knows some shit.

Broken bone... stopped a 4 wheeler with my calf... and a tree. snapped the fibula cleanly. It was miserable. I was about 30 minutes ride from civilization with 2 buddies and we rode on and back and then I passed out. So... no boot camp for me, most likely ever, which is horrible. I had the surgery a few days ago and it is still pretty bad. The doctor was surprised that I didn't faint when it happened, he called in other doctors to show them, which was actually kind of cool. But I have been drowning my sorrows in Mr. Daniels. He actually said the muscle in my calf saved the bone next to it, so +1 for squats and such. I'll still be around the forum.

Fuuuck! That is shitty man. How long for your recovery? I'm sorry to hear about that man, bad luck.

Did some benching today. It felt really funny because I put a chair to sit my leg on since I cant bend it. So basically I was on the bench with a leg even with my body, balance was hard so I didn't go to heavy.

135x15
225x4x4
255x4
275x3
295x1-barely, almost lost my balance and fell off the bench, but I forced my breath out and kept my core tight enough so I could get it back up, it was a very very ugly rep.

Felt great to actually do something active. I think I am going to be able to increase my benching strength because I'll be used to having to focus so much on balance that by the end of it my core will be very sturdy so if I add in leg drive I can up the numbers. Going to do arm work and shoulder as well, and I'll see what I can do for my back because I don't need any more of an imbalance than I have. Was thinking of seated rows and pull ups, stuff that you dont need legs for.
