Good stuff, Brute. Big things coming this year. You'll get the 315 bench soon for sure, but don't race Jim! He's sandbagging you.

Still, 3/4/5 right there in your grasp real soon. Nice.
Thanks Mike! Those squats will happen, one day. I know Jim can out bench me, but I'll do my best to match his total!

455X5 ... damn too strong Brute the Monster ...
Thanks Ravi!

Good day today. My numbers still seem piddly to me on these lifts, but we're getting there, one rep at a time.

Clean once, then press for reps
Bar x 10
95 x 5
115 x 3
125 x 10
125 x 8
125 x 6
125 x 6 - finally made all the reps!

BB Row
135 x 5
185 x 3
225 x 3
275 x 1
210 x 8
210 x 6
210 x 7

DB Bench - the pressing before hand is taking it out of me, but thats ok. this is accessory. I have to keep reminding myself of that
45 x 5
60 x 3
75 x 9
75 x 7
75 x 5
75 x 5

Hammer Curl
45 x 11
45 x 8
45 x 6 - staying here until my regular curls catch up. more reps can't be a bad thing

Lying triceps extension (may not be the right name, but i'm calling it that)
50 x 20
50 x 10 - my god the burn... using this weight until i can hit 40 in 2 sets.

BB Curl
40 x 20

Good to see those row numbers inching up. Once you hit 225 for 10s you're in a pretty strong place. They are tracking as strong, or stronger than your bench press which is what I like to see.

Thanks Jim! I figure both. A movie should give enough time for food to settle, then Max attempts on deads!

Thanks KD! 1 arm DB rows really seem to have helped as well.

Thanks BtB. Rows are starting to feel more natural. Still awkward, but not as weird at least.

So, 2 prs today. Some personal crap is making it hard to focus, and reps were out of the question on squats today. Lack of focus and reps is a recipe for disaster.

Squat
135 x 5
Add belt
135 x 5
185 x 3
225 x 3
275 x 3
315 x 1
355 x 1 - PR + 10 pounds. Video at the bottom.

Power Shrug
135 x 5
225 x 5
315 x 5
405 x 5
495 x 5 - PR for a decent shrug at the top

Rack Pull - to burn off some rage.
585 x 1
655 x 1
725 x 1
815 x 1 - I say strange things to myself before I do attempts like this. But it's only weird if it doesn't work.

Depth looked great on the squat Brute, but I thought it was a bit Good Morning-ish with forward lean. Staying more upright is tough. I had the same problem awhile back and Steve suggested a High Bar Squat, which worked for me, along with a few other adjustments. I am sure he will be able to give more advice on it.

815 Rack Pull is out of this world!! Wow!! I have never dated anyone with an 800+ pull before!! I may have to put my tail between my legs when we max attempt!!
