Yeah, that's a sick deadlift. What is even more crazy, to me, is your strength in pull-ups and chin-ups after doing deadlifts and good mornings. If I don't do pull-ups as my first back exercise, my strength in the exercise decreases to the point where its not even effective. Keep up the good work and it was nice meeting you today!

Thanks man. It was great to meet you too, we'll get more chances to get together, talk about getting strong and hopefully get a workout in too. Keep up the hard work man and best of luck with school this semester.

Bigbear, I very much appreciate your support and I will be following your DC training. I look forward to continuing to support each other and share ideas, I continued to be impressed with your progress.

2X25 w/ Body Weight

Good work. 225 for 11 was a 1 rep PR with that weight. A good way to start off the cycle benching. It was about 35 degrees in the garage today, which made it all the more fun. Haven't done a hypertrophy bench workout in over a month because of the meet so I'll be pretty messed up tomorrow (awesome), but tomorrow is the real deal, hypertrophy squat. Also, one other change I made to this cycle is that I will no longer be squatting with knee wraps. The USAPL does not allow them in their RAW division (in which I lift) therefore it does no good to use them. I just got some knee sleeves and may or may not use them as they do not help with more weight. Time to eat, watch the Cowboys hopefully win tonight, and get ready to squat tomorrow.

Nothing like getting pumped to Metallica. I wish I could but I crushed my headphones with a 75lb dumbbell. So I have to listen to the crappy gym music.

I don't know who that is yelling throughout your videos, but he's really got you going to your limits. Nice occlusion squats too, I want to try occlusion training atleast once this semester.

Solid stuff. First day of the standing military press as opposed to the seated and liking it. 135 for 11 was solid and it gave me a monster headache. Took a lot out of me, hence the 185 for 10 on close grip. Deadlift tomorrow, can't wait.

Hey man, I hit 402 at a meet last month:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wESvYsGYO7k
And also hit a really sloppy 405 in training in early December, both of those lifts were with wraps. I feel stronger now even without the wraps and look to hit at least 430 at the end of this cycle at about 179 or 180. We shall see, reps are going great and feel good so far. First heavy squat day on this cycle is next Monday, should have a better idea of how the heavy weight feels then.
