I am sure they do. If I was to guess its more to do about the ability to calculate the help from the band as oppose to the actual carry over from the slingshot. Just a guess though.

Alright well today was supposed to be deadlift day, but as stated we tweaked some erector spinaes and with a load of inflammation it was making everything difficult so i decided to use the rst of the week and take it slow - felt aamazing after my 2 chiro session but still didnt want to push it. anyways on to todays!

1/9/2013
don't know what to call this day other than glorified stretching

Deadlifts (yes i actually attempted them to see how itd feel)
135 x 8 2sets
225 x 5 2 sets
315 x 3 2 sets (this is where we stopped. felt amazing going up, however without my belt on i didnt have the confidence to lower it back to starting, threw the belt on and did it all pain free.)

Seat Good Mornings (w/ safety squat bar 65lbs)
bar x 12
115 x 10
135 x 8

Reverse Hypers
BW x 10
50 x 10
100 x 10 x 2 sets

Finished it all off with stretching and some ab wheel. like i said not much but the emphasis is to get better and fast. Had some fun doing decompression on the mono-lift courtesy of donnie thompson lol here it is, check it out!

Good to hear the back is on the mend. Strong stuff in here.

Donnie just looks like a cool guy to hang out with, but the insight in his videos is flat out amazing.

@BTB - its hard lol, but i know its worth it and all for the goal of hittin the numbers i want. ill be back in no time - day 6 since the "injury" and not gonna lie i feel like im back, still just a little stiffness but i feel absolutely amazing - this chiro is a angel of powerlifters lol

@MikeM appreciate it! and ya Donnie seems awesome, not to sound like a little school girl but some how he seen one of my videos (benching) and tweeted me saying "you'll get it, and when you do it feels awesome!" (refering to my goal of benching 500) needless to say I was ecstatic lol

Basic run down of tonight (if I can remember everything lol) It was all just as I went this is what I did. Spent a good portion just stretching, foam rolling, getting loose (to prepare for tomorrow) did a bunch of band work (internal/external rotations, face pulls, push downs, lat pull) used the shoulder horn, and worked some good mornings, also of course did my new favorite Batman! (see video above).. I feel aboslutely amazing! tomorrow will be the test though - not going to try and kill it, however I am going to push myself but at first sign of awkward-ness I am cutting the cord.
