Thanks Hunter! Everything is strapped for shrugs and rack pulls. The bars at Golds are slick as a politician.

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!!
THanks Jim! Yeah, I good morninged it a bit, have to work on keeping the form when things get tough. So much easier to just let my lower back raise the weight. Form will always be a work in progress, and I appreciate you keeping me honest on it.

I might be able to pull stupid heavy numbers from a rack, but squatting them is another question. You've got me there.

Down 11 lbs in 8 days - wow, that's crazy Brute!! Equally insane is the backoff benchwork volume of almost 30 reps. Get it next time or else!!

Nice too see you back on top of the Brute Presses!!

Last but not least, DB Rows must have had you nearly hurling or at the least nauseated haha.

Zero in on 225x10. That should have you at a 300 max. Go get it!

Awesome stuff lately Brute! Big squat, big bench, Humongous rows, 800 rack pull!?! Goodness. Good stuff.

Just a thought on that squat. I'm not sure it's you actually leaning forward, I think your middle and upper back are rounded a bit.

If you can drive your shoulders back into the bar and keep a straighter mid back on the way up, it might clear up that lean right there. Not an expert, just something I think might help. Squats are still a work in progress for me too. I think squats are pretty much a work in progress for everybody.

You can't move that Brute press to another day? Seems you'll always struggle with any press after benching.

Nice weight loss!

that's insane ... means doing Squat @355 then Shrugs @495 and then Rack pull @815 I would be like this after this monster working ... great lifting BF ...
