If I might offer a slight bit of advice, it seems to me that you could be quite a bit tighter during your set up. Think more of pulling the bar off the floor than jerking it. Give it a try if you want, it might help. I think it should make your lock out a bit easier.
Thanks,always something to work on. Learn and grow!

Toes almost touching the inside plate,which is normal for my sumo (plus I was barefoot). I wouldn't want my shoulders too far forward for sure.


Wed Jan 23rd
Speed Benching

Something different tonight.

Speed bench with 135lbs.
2x2
2x3
2x4
1x5

140 x5

145 x5

Speed was great I think,lockout was wobbly (more tightness). Fun too!


Seated dips. Each rep from a dead stop. A bazillion sets all at least 5 reps and none to absolute failure. Started with full stack (315lbs).

Somewhere along the line I worked in two arm dumbell rows. 90lbs 3x8.

Ab work and rotator cuff maintenance. I've tried a couple times not doing external rotator work,after 2 weeks without my bench hurts.


Video which ends with a good reason not to film in a car. I got road rage somewhere in the 5th minute.


Edit! For some reason the video will not work with audio past 2:40 mark. In a nutshell,I talked about seeing the same people in the gym for a year or even several years,making litttle or no progress. The message,set goals! And then I have someone cut me off and I get very upset.
