crazy strong and interesting to see how some humans are just naturally extremely strong. I know this will be taken the wrong way and that doesn't bother me. I just really like seeing people who started off weak and busted there ass too become strong. I just tend to look up to and respect these types of individuals and stories more. Theres a lot more that can be learned from them. Is it entertaining to watch people lift really heavy things absolutely. Its just more interesting and inspiring to watch someone lift heavy things that busted there ass to achieve that goal. Its kind of like being born rich vs grinding to open your own business or invest etc. You really cant learn anything from someone who was born rich but someone who started from the bottom and grinded every step of the way and failed countless times before they finally found a successful formula there is a ton of wisdom to be learned there. I just feel like we see alot of people who were born rich in strength sports.
I'm more focused on the Dead Lift now, when I Dead Lift my minimum will be 405 x 1. Last week I blew out my lower back locking out too hard a 315 warm up. I continued on and still hit 405 x 1 barely being able to walk, hence I must do at least 405 x 1.
The powers to be (life) got in the way of gym time today, but I suppose it was meant to be, as my lower back still needs care. I got the gym about an hour late, which only gives me 40 minutes. I decided to not Dead Lift today.
I began back squats nursing my back and didn't feel any pain, I left the squat rack in better shape than coming in, that's a plus!
Squat (below parallel)-
135 x 5
185 x 5
225 x 10
245 x 1
269 x 14
Squatting while nursing the back is a lot harder, at rep 14 it was starting to get tough, had I been 100%, this would have been a 16+repper.
Powerclean and Press
115 x 2-presses
135 x 2-presses
145 x 2-presses
150 x 2-presses
155 x 2-presses
Ran out of time.....
Keep this in mind, I DIDN'T Dead Lift today, it object of this is WHEN I Dead Lift!
Now this is the best version of Chungas Revenge, I had found it about a year ago and had no clue when it was recorded, it was taken down, and here we go, it was in a basement, Aynsley Dunbar drums.......
Tough training day. I am training for a big endurance feat currently. I did a full, normal bending day doing braced, DO, DU and Reverse. The highlight was bending these new DHWOG 6” x 3.9mm nails. I bent 9 taped together and then did 11 taped together. After my normal training, pre-fatigued, I DO bent 300 x 60d nails. Endurance is good right now. Here are pics and video:
