    My Quest for 405

    It could have been a fatigue thing as well. Many times lifts are missed at the top because you're simply tired. Try floor presses, 1 or 2 board benches and speed work. Speed benching will help you force the bar through lock-out.

    My Quest for 405

    If you're going to compete raw in the squat, you don't want to rely on briefs too much. If your hips are bothering you, you might want to bring your stance in a tad. From looking at the 365 bench video, you missed that almost at the top, which is primarily triceps. I've never seen a raw bench...

    Yes, the 335 looked easy. I'm surprised you missed 365. That's a pretty long bench stroke, longer than Dave's.

    My Quest for 405

    Good pull. A couple of things. Your hands are a bit too far apart. Pull your feet a little bit closer so your hands are hanging straight down. This will shorten your range of motion a tad. Secondly, lose the gym shoes and get some chuck taylors or wrestling shoes. The shoes you had on...

    My Quest for 405

    Breifs will fix the hip problem in the squat. You don't need to use gangster briefs. Inzer sells a brief called Power Pants. They cost about $50. You would probably be a size 36-38. They'll protect your hips while squatting but they don't give you much pop, maybe 30-40 lbs. I do 90% of my...

    My Quest for 405

    Congratulations on a successful meet and the big deadlift. A couple of things about your training leading up to the meet. You were benching and deadlifting too often leading up to your meet. I was surprised with the big deadlift considering you pulled 3 or 4 times in the last 2 weeks...

    Sorry to hijack your journal, Stewart. Let us know how you did today. I need to talk to you about some stuff you did leading up to your meet. I didn't want to say anything to fuck with your head prior to your meet.

    My Quest for 405

    Let's see, you state you don't want to start a fight but you just did. Not sure what you're trying to start here pal, but this was a simple disagreement between us regarding methods of training and competing. If you knew anything about powerlifting, you would know that there is heated debate...

    Did you use that squat bar from hell? I can barely get my hands around it

    Please be advised that Dan took the purple bands off the base of the varsity rack so the girls could do reverse bands squats in the JV rack. Dan did not put them back when they were done. In case Chuck has a meltdown, we had nothing to do with it.

    My Quest for 405

    No one on this end is laughing. I only laugh at Pud because he has FuFu man pudding on his workout shirt. Just understand that historically there was never raw lifting. Even today's raw lifting isn't raw. You have raw divisions that allow knee wraps, wrist wraps, belts, etc. The problem...

    My Quest for 405

    I'm one of the belly benching, high arching, wide stance squatting, sumo deadlifting lifters you refer to. I'm not quite sure why you would want to increase your range of motion in any of the lifts. "Let's see, I can squat 700 close stance but 750 with a wide stance, but I think I'll go to...

    How was the tension with the greens? Were they doubled? 380 with the doubled minis was about my limit.

    I'm out of town tomorrow through Monday. I told Lynn to Lynn to hit some reverse band triples, then put the shirt on, load up the weight and do more triples to overload his lock-out but I don't think anyone will be there Sunday to help him.

    That will work. In the Mondo shirt I don't try to touch anything less than 455. As soon as the bar stops I start pushing back up. Once you figure out how much weight it takes to touch you don't have to try to touch the lighter warm-ups. Dan tried to unrack an 840 third attempt but it was...
