I doubt some of your skiddy wide fronts are going to help Boar! Unless you put them underneath him whlst he squats. I'd fly out the hole if your pants where underneath me!!

Half tempetd to compete at the open. It'll be knee wraps at most! Depends if there are any IPF banned lifters competing?

Deadlift- 140x5x5
Dumbbell clean and press (from the hang)- 20x10x2
Hammer curls- 15x10x3

Nice light session today. Did the pulling in the lab with some light gates set up. I belive all reps were timed to within 0.1s of each other (0.4 - 0.5 s).

Start of a de-load week.

Not any real training but did a batteery of exercise tests in the lab today for a colleges phd. Did the following.

1) Max force production using a Concept dynomoter. The following movements x10 MVC with 5s rest between efforts;

Horizontal pulling
Leg press movment
Horizontal pushing

2) Hand dynomter x 5 efforts with 30s rest

3) Static deadlift movment x 5

4) 8 min load carry on treadmill (4km/hr + 25kg load)

5) VO2 max test on treadmill (ramped incline then speed)

Havn't run or done a max test in years so my VO2 max will be way down. My relative value anyway. I did beat all previous scores on the max force testing Happy The majority of those tested so far are Army recruits and training teams.

Anyway it equated to a nice session of exercise. Going to repeat it all on friday.

I think your doing the right thing Boar. You still gina get pb's without the briefs. Better to finish the comp with a pb total than bomb! The'll be plenty of comps in the future where you'll have to lay it on the line to win.

Metallica were great, if a bit far away! The new Wembley is massive and one hell of a stadium. Of course after a bottle of gin on the way there I would have had a good time if they were playing in a garden shed!

Nice floor pressing.

As for Smolov if you havn't tried it you would have never known so always a silver lining! Maybe though you just need to reduce the load for your 1st cycle and give it another crack. Or aim for squats x 2 per week and see how you get on with that?
» advice please (Go to post)09-07-2007 @ 13:01 
Good advice and good luck!
» BPC British championships (Go to post)08-07-2007 @ 10:20 
Good luck guys and see you next Sunday! Although I have more pressing concerns this sun as I am just about to travel to Wembley to see Metallica!

LOL! Ohh no! I've turned into a dirty gear whore. I guess it starts with knee wraps then before you now it your nicking car stero's to pay for your next tripple ply denim shirt Tongue

Pin pulls do rip your hands up. However I was using what is technacally called a 's**t bar' and with such in-substantial knurling you could'nt get nappy rash of it. Plus what there was of the knurling didn't go far enough towards the center of the bar, hence I was gripping smooth metal, and therefore using straps Happy

Bugger me straps and knee wraps in the same session!
» Iain's Training (Go to post)06-07-2007 @ 16:22 

Squat with wraps- 180x1,(wraps on), 190x1, 200x1, 210x1, 220x1, 227.5x1, 232.5x1
Pin pulls from knee- 240x1, 260x3, 280x1, 300x0, 272.5x3
Grip work- hex-bell holds and pinch griping

Very enjoyable session. My 1st 500lb squat, albeit with wraps but still cool. The wraps felt odd at 1st but after a couple of singles it started to click and I was also getting the hand of putting them on. Walking it out was a bit strange to begin with too.

As my pb is 220 it looks like I got a 12.5kg carry over. With practice I reckon 240 (with wraps) would be do-able soon. Anyway the experiment worked. I will now use wraps on occasion to do some supra-maximal squat work.

Was a bit knackered after the squats to pull well but happy with 600lbx3. Productive work at least.

De-load next week. My lower back def needs the rest!

As for technique;

Choke a band on top of a rack
Attach to a wrist then step away
Use the band tension to stretch te joint in as many poss a possible.
I start by working through small ROM's in different poss before going into stretches.

Anyway here are some links that may help; (I lik eto stand on a band then deadlift the bands holding at the top to get traction)

Well I aint a sports therapist but it should help impingment. A sport therapist I have seen said that the idea was a good thing to mobilise the joint and keep them healthy after the compression occuring through benchin etc. But I read about the method from an article by Dave Tate (Elitefts).

However I would go about it very carfully if you have an existing injury and would seek expert advice regarding it.

Anything you can do to maintain some flexability in the shoulder joint is probably a good thing. My ROM is shocking in some positions and so I have been trying to improve (if slghtly) or at least not let it degrade any more. Hence band traction and dislocates plus fit ball stretching and mobility.

Hope that helps? Happy
