Thanks Hunter! Give me another 6 months and maybe I'll get close. As long as you bulk like a maniac!

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.
Thanks Jim! Next time I'm getting that 30. One way or another. And yeah, the DB rows are nasty. I feel like taking a nap after each arm.

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!
Thanks Mike! And that's a good idea on the squat, I'll keep that in mind next session. For the brute press, its just an accessory, and I want to keep BB OHP as a primary movement so i'm not sure what day to move it to, but I'll take a look. I would like to spark some progress on it.

^^ Are you freakin' kidding me? Man, you certainly verified a 5PPS pull scientifically as well by doing it at another location haha. I gather it's not a PR?

Again, I have to sound like a broken record and say your just a great puller - no question about it. A 815 rack pull the other day and now this gem today.

Why did you leabe the first gym?

Thanks Jim. I got kicked out for the day at my other gym. I refused to stop deadlifting. I offered to work with management to find a solution that wouldn't bother people and would allow me to train like I need to, but I was asked to leave for the day. I have made it clear that I will continue to train for Strongman and power lifting, and if it is too much of an issue for them, they can cancel my contract. But for the day, I wanted to get my work in, so I left.

And 495 is only 10 pounds away from my all time PR. I was just pissed off so hit something heavy.

I salute you for standing up for all deadlifters. That gym should go hang their head in shame. LtL had a similiar experience at a gym he had a day pass in over christmas while visiting someone.

Nice, packed up your toys and played somewhere else. Awesome. I think 600 is a given and pretty damn soon.

I see with the Brute press being assistance. I assumed it was a strongman type thing you were doing. How about this, every third week or so, do the Brute press first, then bench? Once you've grooved bigger weights doing them after benching might still keep them inching up. Then another bump on the next third week, etc. Or flip it with OHP on OHP days instead. Just a thought.

Just tell me to shut up if you're sick of my thoughts! I'm like Columbo. "Eh, just one more thing....). I can't help it sometimes.

Hack away at anything which isn't essential. Do what you love, and do it often. Fazc.

Everything competes for recovery so more assistance is not always the best idea. miked96
