    Todays Tri workout included close grip bench, as it always does. We used chains today, bringing the total weight to 250 lbs.

    Thanks brotha..
    The chains weigh a combined 54 lbs when all the links are off the floor.

    I got the chains on ebay, they were $100 for the big thick ones.
    $25.00 for the collars.
    I have about 135$ in them.
    You can get them on any powerlifting website
    Rocksolidfitness is one site that has them for sale.

    Come on bro, nobody is fat in here man, some are just more swole up than others

    Sounds good man.
    As it 1st comes off the chest, probably 20 lbs total. Not exactly sure though, hard to determine..

    What's your training split like? Do you do more of a bodybuilding or powerlifting routine?
    Best of luck man, get in there and straight kill it, leave all you have in there.

    its only my 2nd week which ends tomorrow 3rd week begins monday or tues. day 2 is your light day where u go 80% of your 5RM max. so your really only going all out 2x a week at the beginning of the week and towards the end. I like it so far. Hopefully my #'s keep increasing that way i can stick with it.

    Did week 7 of Ed coan today. First week that felt heavy and first week that I failed.

    Flat 245x5x2 (Last rep was pretty difficult)
    CG 215x5x2 (Easy)
    Incline 205x5x2 Failed (Only got 4 reps on both sets)

    I was pretty tired when I got to incline so I'm not too worried about it.
    Squat 335
    Bench 295
    Dead 495

    Great job bro, the focus and determination is what matters, if we don't hit our goal for the day, at least we know we put all we had into it..

    Chest and core (7:20 PM - 9:40 PM):
    Okay, this was anything but high-intensity. I spent a lot of time talking with someone, and I was waiting for Paul to get out of teaching MMA since I have ringworm and can't be on the mat for a few more days because of it.

    BB bench press: 45x30, 135x8, 185x5, 205x2, 225x1, 245x1, 255x0 (got it off my chest)
    The spotter waited about four seconds to pull up the 255x0, so my chest wasn't too happy about that. I felt my right chest knot up, and I didn't feel like doing much after that for fear of causing an injury.

    Close-grip bench press: 225x1

    Incline DB press: 70x5
    I thought these would be better, but my chest felt a very slight discomfort in it when I got to the last few reps. I decided not to risk it, and called it.

    Dragon flags: 8, 2
    The 8 were done in such a way that I came within 5 degrees of hitting parallel. I feel a lot less compressive force on my back this way, and it still kills my abs. The second set of two was done with a lot stricter form, in the sense that I came down to parallel for each rep. I didn't like the way my spine was feeling on the second set though, so I stopped. I attempted a third set between the two, but ended up breaking a cable machine in the process (lol). See video.

    Hanging l-sit: 35 seconds

    Hanging leg raises (done quickly): 2x10


    If nothing else, watch the video at 3:14. Lulz will be had, I promise.

    Net weight moved: 5005 pounds

    Not everyone has to pause their bench, you patronizing dickwad. That had a lot less control than usual, though. I've never bounced before.

    I always have to get my mental focus going for heavy lifts.
