Thanks guys. I'm not so great at catching the bar on my thighs when its coming back down from my shoulders to the ground, so there was definitely some noise, but not like I was just dropping it either. Today I'm driving out to S&M Fitness, about 45 minutes from here, to check it out and train my deadlift. Its focused on power lifting and less than $30 a month, so I just have to decide if I can handle the drive and gas money.

I could probably handle that a couple times a month but the drive would get old. Hope it works out for you.

Thanks Steve. Thats pretty much what I am thinking. If I can make it in one or two times a month for max effort upper/lower and work with people who can coach me and push me, I think it would be worth it.

S&M fitness is exactly what I've been looking for in a gym. Too bad its so far away. 3 squat racks, plenty of room to deadlift, competition benches, GHR, and not much else. Chalk is on a paper plate at the front desk. A number of the bars were bent, and the deadlifting platform had deep depressions where the plates hit, 1/2 inch plus. Pics of old time body builders, male and female lined the walls. Great place. At $4 a day for a day pass, I think I'll just do that for now.

Deadlift - lower than normal, and I felt it. Bar was curved too, made it a little tougher to hold onto.
135x6
225x5
315x5
340x5
360x5
230x8x5

Power Clean
Barxlots
85x10
135x5 - wanted to keep going, but felt too beat up and didnt want an injury

Hanging Leg Raise - more of a hanging knee raise. Being 6'5" make it hard to do anything with a pullup bar.
BWx12/6 - no grip left

Reverse Hyper? Body is flat on a mat, legs 90 degress in a sling, pull up with hams/glutes/lower back to make inline with body.
50x10

Two things are driving me today in addition to my usual need to get strong.

1. People at the gym I went to yesterday told me not to get my hopes up for power lifting because I have the wrong build. Pretty sure that in 3 years I'll be outlifting their strongest.

2. Friends little brother is well on his way to being a natty body builder. No way am I letting him get stronger than me. Better looking, sure, but not stronger.

Time to put heavy iron over my head.

Great session today, completely worn out. Back at Gold's Social Club, so no chalk, which hurt farmers walks, but other than that, things went well. Videos as soon as my phone get enough charge to load them.

Clean & Press - Clean first rep, then push press from there
barx10
95x5
115x1
125x5
135x5
145x5
155x1
165x1
175x1
180x0
175x0 no speed left.
85x10x5

Pullup - wider grip, hands at about 45 degrees.
BWx3x4 - PR

These were from a full hang too. This is a first. Yeah, some kipping involved, but my best effort yet.

Farmers Walk
110x80 feet
110x45 feet - hands were too slick.

Clean and press work looks excellent.

If I could pullup I would probably kip to until I build some strength.

That place sounds awesome. I see many PRs coming out of a place like that.

Thanks OR. I'm looking forward to getting out to that gym as often as possible. Some great people there.

Sunday Weigh In

253 even. Up 1.4 pounds from two weeks ago (last time I weighed in on Sunday), but down 1 pound from when I got back from my trip. Would have liked to be under 250 by now, but travel makes eating more difficult, whether its not getting enough, or friends taking you to their favorite restaurants.
