    Nice workout today Shawn. Those bench reps looked nice and smooth. Good job on the assistance work. I like the higher rep ranges on everything. Looks like you definitely got some good work in today.

    Can't wait to see the Lower workout tomorrow...looking forward to the EMOM chitstorm on Monday too...sounds like a blast!

    Thanks Greg, I had fun with it today, so that was cool. The lower workout tomorrow is nothing spectacular, just some volume work at 70%…but I am sure I will find it hard. Now next week will be fun to watch…why? because it's fun to watch others cry in their own vomit

    I thought so, it popped up in my "you might be interested in this" items on Amazon I hope it was because I looked at the regular singlet. I was like uh nope, not interested in that....Well wait maybe....next cut I could wear some baggy tear off warm ups to the gym, then rip them off and train in that purple one. .

    That would be hilarious

    Great workout today Shawn. Those squats @ 265 looke good...nice depth there for sure. That video of your deads at 370 looked good too...that was a nice pace on the pulling...way to hold that last one up too. It looks like a good no-nonsense workout there...lighter than your maxes for sure but some intensity nonetheless.

    Nice Shawn! Really strong reps man. Deads looked great, and that was a ton of reps to do at 370 after 32 reps at 265 on squats. 40 lb added weights to step ups is getting it done as well.

    Killing it as usual in here Shawn.

    Squats and Deads looked very strong for reps. As I was watching your squat video, I was recalling how far your form has come over the past year and a half. It really looks good. All of that consistent form work you have done is really going to pay off.

    Thanks Greg, damn workout looked so easy on paper..but proved to be pretty hard for me. Again the programming is really good, you always work like a dog…but you can usually pull it off if you work hard. JC says it's set up so you feel like you really accomplished something after a session…and it's true

    Thanks Shane, I am sure I will feel this tomorrow. One of my glutes was seizing up on me before my last set of squats. The step ups were tough as well, my heart rate was pounding at a pretty good clip!

    Thanks Doc, that means a lot to hear about my form. I know I have a very ugly and funky looking squat, but it's what I got to work with. I am happy with my bar path and more consistency in my depth for sure. As well, my knees are good, my piriformis is holding together….I must be doing something right. Just got to stay healthy and keep consistent in slowly getting stronger!!

    Nice sets and good volume work. My volume day is very similar, looks easy on paper but the second or third set of 8 and I'm really wishing I was done. At least the higher intensity days seem to be over with faster. Those higher rep sets can feel like an eternity.

    Good that you figured out the head movement thing was throwing you forward. The rack at the gym faces a wall mirror so i just focus on my hips but dont really "see" anything. At home I do the same thing as you focusing on a spot on the floor about 10' in front of me.

    Good work kicking JC's ass Shawn. Nice rep work on the squats and Deads and your bench strength is shooting up at a good clip right now. Paused rep looked legit to me. You flat out killed that bench session!

    I would have to agree with you. Those presses looked picture (I guess viedeo) perfect. Very nice work on the pause lift as well. Enjoy the lake.

    Definitely kicking ass the last two workouts Shawn: squats looked as good through the whole 4th set as in the 1st and don't tell yourself that 265 x 32 reps isn't huge effort! Deads @ 370 just look way too easy and you just killed that 230 RM

    Nice bench workout yesterday Shawn. Those sets in the vids looked great.

    Enjoy the lake and have a good weekend.

    I dunno…your volume day looks much scarier..and much heavier!! Agree it looks easy on paper, hell even watching the vids back it looked easy actually. Think it was more mental than anything.
    The looking at the floor ahead thing was a big step forward for me. It immediately improved my bar path. It's not perfect now by any means…but much much better!

    Thanks Mooseman, first week was tough but it's in the rearview now. 2 hell lower sessions this week and then things get heavy….very heavy… yay! Wally's were slim pickings this weekend, one of the worst trips for fishing this year, but beats working!!

    Thanks Greg, just trying to keep up with you! I felt strong and was really happy with the 9 reps of 230. It's a strength jump for me…and as you all have heard…it's been a while lol. Weekend was good, home now and ready to ramp up for week 2

    Reading back through your log to look at your start of JC and this sums up exactly how I feel right now about JC. I now totally understand what you were going through leading up to this.

    I plugged numbers for my current maxes and it looks hard as fuk, especially the squats. To add to the anxiety, I'll be testing 1RM's in a week and I'm expecting my numbers will be a bit higher. This means JC will be super hard as fuk

    That being said I will run it as JC intends, hopefully it will put some hair on my ballz

    Haha I would expect nothing less from you Andrew, and I also know this program is going to put your lifts through the roof. I feel somewhat better after getting the first week done, tomorrow will be hard...but really it's a half hour of my life I gotta man da Faak up and giver chit. I got this, as you will get this!

    Damn Shawn that sounds like a painful but also a pain releasing workout. Way to get in there and get it done.

    Phukking hip pain. It seems like I'm always having to deal with that too. Oh well at least you've learned the ways to deal with it and get yourself in good shape for your next workout.

    Way to destroy those calves and show them who the boss is.
    If in doubt, squat and run hills. So you walk into the gym and don't know what to do? Then squat and run hills. Have a miserable day at work and want to break someone's neck but aren't sure who's? Then squat and run hills. - Jim Wendler
