Try a field hockey or lacrosse ball for rolling out the knots.

Go careful with the back, you only have one.

Thanks Swede, I intend to not push it too far haha! I have hated ab work for a long time so I suspect I am reaping the rewards of my indifference. I'm trying all sorts of round objects, as of now my back is actually sore to the touch so hopefully it'll work!

Yes, I I initially though of Coan/Phillipi but Mr. Ltl informed me that raw lifters had better success with Anello - so I'm giving it a run!

Good workout. I refigured my training max off of the 305 single I managed to press last week. I looked back on my logs and the first time I benched on 5/3/1 I got 210 for 13 - that was 10 weeks ago . I tried pausing some benches just to see what it felt like - man is it a world of difference, definately need to practice it. I also need to psh progression on CGBP - I'm pretty sure my triceps are my weak point. I'm kind of confused about DB bench, I was on a major upswing of progression and worked up to 105's for almost 3x8, but for the last 3 weeks I can't do more than 1 set of 8 with 100's. Weird.

I just thought this might be interesting - it's a chart of my progress in bench, squat and military that compares my rep maxes throughout each week. The sharp dips in the military and squat graphs are weeks where I just did requisite reps and then went on to do heavy singles.


This is the squat video from last friday
This is my deadlift video from last Monday. Any critiques on either lift are welcome - I think my grip is what failed me in the 445 attempt on deadlift - you can actually see my hand open as I start to pull. The lockout on the 425 was weird, as I got to the top it felt like I was falling forward, so I had to lean back and relockout...I don't know haha!

Your deadlift form looks rock solid.

Really impressed with your pressing strength. You won't be long for 350+.

Thanks BtB, I reckon deadlifting has been the form I've worked the hardest on since I've never done them before! I hope you're right about the pressing, I'd love to be there!

The back was bothering me a bit this morning - though not as bad as earlier this week (probably due to the prodigious rolling I've been doing with tennis ball and PVC pipe alike). Was able to get the sets done, but everything felt way heavier than it should - still got a PB though . Started doing my BBB sets for 3x10 at 225, but my back had about all it was going to stand so I called them off. Shoulders tomorrow, first day doing push presses instead of military!

Also, the bench video from Wednesday, just the money set...didn't think to get the pauses :
