Good day yesterday.   Feeling it today.  It was really fun to be actually competing with Jedd and Luke on the lifts.  Usually I'm done with my attempts before they start warming up.  Lol.  Guess train

Another Awesome day yesterday at NAGS.  Other than I just can't figure out 2HP to save my life.  🤷‍♂️ Silver Bullet: Got about 1.5 seconds with a 205 lb #4, which I think was 2nd overall.  Distan

I hate @EricMilfeld for putting the idea of 20 rep squats in my head.  No seriously. Fork you old man Milfeld!   SSB Box Squats with Elitefts Pro Light Bands.  Add ~ 50 at bottom and 95 at top. A

Power belly for the win!  Always good for an extra plate a side.

It was a slab o beef.  Lol.  Wish I could find that so I could show Saw someday that his old man had some muscle at one point. 😂

I’m sure the missus has it stashed away in her “private” album.

Some DOT axle.  Nothing noteworthy. 

3" pinch up to 100.4.  PR

Was looking back at some old vids from 5-6 years ago. Mostly old bends, but came across this.  Something to be said for being large.  I miss being strong n SWOLE.  Now I'm just weak n old.  Lol

 

Great video and impressive DL. Someday post some bending videos those are cool to watch.

Been taking a few days off.  Nasty bronchitis was my gift this Christmas.  

Decided to go out and play today.

Worked up to 420 on the 2" NN - PR.  Used the short pin.

Then some light pinch and vbar work.

Went to doc yesterday.  Pneumonia. But at least they caught it early this time so I get to skip the one week in the hospital like the last two times.

So... did a very short workout today. 😜

2" NN up to 425 (PR)

Stupid but satisfying. Lol

Nasty stuff. Put me in the hospital when I was 2.  Get well quick!

And just now was the first time I’ve seen your 600 pull. You looked big and mean, Mike! Strong lift!

That’s back when I weighed 180. 😀

But you’re still pulling over 5 and I think you can keep climbing...

I don't know buddy.  I'm hovering right around 5 now (maybe less).  I hit a wall at 530 earlier this year and just couldn't seem to push through it.  Don't think I'll ever get within spitting distance of 600 again.  I may just have to live vicariously through you!

This puts a lot of pressure on me. I’ll try and live up to the challenge, but I may do the same and live vicariously through your grip feats!

Good day.  Not great, but good.

Worked up to 410 x 3 on 2" NN.  Was so tired from that effort that I missed 430.  Next time.

Switched to using the blockbuster clone I have for pinch training.  Will be contesting that in a comp Feb 16 and I want to get used to the rounded edges.  Makes it harder than the other 3" block I have which has much sharper edges. 

I was pretty beat from the NN and ended up getting several partial lifts with 90.  One I got all the way but lost it at top.  I think I'm good for 90-93 fresh, which is about 10 below where I am on the other block.  Need to get this dialed in a little better so I can give Jedd and Luke a run for their money next month on the BB.

2" V-bar:  Only went up to 250.  It aggravates my shoulder if I go super heavy.

Then more training for the blockbuster: Got 90 pretty easy.  Couldn't quite get 92.4 totally to lockout. Here's the 90 plus the best of my 5 not quite good enough attempts at 92.4.
