    Anyone screw around with log press in their training just for some variety, for those who have access to one?

    I'm considering buying one from a buddy who would make it himself. Just curious.

    Thought bought it. But can't think of how it would transfer over to powerlifting.

    Sounds fun.

    Only missed lift was my first squat for depth (3 reds). I need 20kg more to qualify for equipped nationals, which I'm hoping to hit in February. My fcuked up pec continues to drag down my total even with a bench shirt, but hopefully I can afford some more sports massages soon to help get rid of all the scar tissue in there. And get a tighter bench shirt so I can use my pecs less. If you watch the vid you can see how easy it is for me to touch everything.
    Good job brah.

    Is your bench shirt made of tissue paper? Looks like there's nothing there lol.

    Not sure sure if it's because they are extremely bad at choosing attempts. Could it be because of crappy form?

    I always say I'm going to do some pump bicep work every week, but then end up just ignoring it. Sometimes my biceps hurt when I bench, I really should start doing some curls or some ****.

    I don't feel crazy now.

    I dropped accessories closed to my meet. Half way bicep started becoming an issue then a minor tear at the meet.

    my guns to wrist size ratio is all out of whack. my guns tell me I can curl every plate in the gym and my wrists say nahhh after like 95 pounds

    tiny wrist problems. At least they don't hurt when I bench....so long as I put on wraps after like 200 pounds

    Never used wraps on curls.

    Same bench pain area as well.

    My current cycle ends in a few weeks and I want to test my squat max both raw and wrapped, what would be the best way to do this? Test it raw then throw on the wraps and see how much higher I can go or do it in different sessions? Still new to wraps.

    Anyone ever try something like Coan's LP for bench? How did it work out for you?

    I got a good routine lined up for when I'm healthy but right now I'm too bugged up to bench heavy often.

    Wraps have become a must for me with curls. Cannot dream of, say, barbell curls without them. I pretty much leave my wraps on for most of my workouts these days. They prevent pain in all upper back **** as well. My arms used to fall apart during pull/chin ups but now I do them pain free. Would recommend using them outside the heavy powerlifts.

    Immediately after dropping $300+ on a bar I'm looking for next upgrade.

    Think I'll add a new bar. Just to have a "beater bar" for band work and all.

    Or a deadlift bar......

    But deadlift bars look kinda pointless.

    Thoughts?

    If you tested it raw and went near 100% I think you'd fatigue yourself enough so that you wouldn't really get a clear picture of where you're at with wraps on. Since you're new to wraps, I'd just test it raw with wraps and assume you'd get 30-40lbs out of your wraps. The learning curve of wraps isn't near the curve of gear, but enough to where someone who doesn't have very much experience in them won't get a whole lot out of them.

    You could work up to a heavy double or triple without wraps and then do it again with wraps on. Either way, I think you'll still be fatigued from your sans wraps set.

    if you compete with a deadlift bar, it's not a bad idea to have one. If you wanna beater bar that's cheap, get a Jesup. They're thicker (31.75mm), but indestructible (1500lb test) from what I've heard. They're $175.

    A buddy of mine who's strong as **** swears by it as a staple press assistance. Specifically reverse band incline press from rack. I added them in over the last few weeks and definitely feel lower rpe/stronger lock on heavy bench sets but I'm not really moving any impressive weight. I do like the shoulder saving element of the neutral grip though.

    Didn't look like at my USAPL meet it was a deadlift. Felt really stiff till 545.

    Jesup might be a good option. Save my OHP. I know lifetime warranty.....but still.....don't wanna use it with bands and I have no issues dropping a deadlift if it feels off.

    Didn't feel called out. If you're competing in USPA 100% of meets should be using a deadlift bar so you should contact either the meet director or Steve Denison directly about that.
