    Yeah, there was at the very least another 5lbs there. You may be right about another 10. It's WILD to think that I could've hit 165 with the mini band after maxing out at 165 on bench WITHOUT the mini band just 3 weeks ago. Feels good man.

    Max Effort Lower day today. I did a deficit Sumo Deadlift. Don't think I've ever done this before. I was cruising until I got to 305, where my hands started to slip for some reason. I put on straps and tried again. This was a sloppy lift. No doubt about that. But it went up. It's the first time I've really gone all out on a deadlift since tweaking my back a couple of months ago, and it held up really well, which is obviously encouraging. And hey, I finally found a use for my 35 pound bumper plates - they're exactly 2 inches thick, which makes them perfect for standing on to do deficit deadlifts.

    Deficit Sumo Deadlift: 305 pounds x 1 rep

    Very smooth 120 there. Think you'll break 130+ before year's end for sure.

    They're intense. If you're not tight, you're doing it wrong. After a long session of staying tight... why more tightness??!?

    They take forever. And then you have to change sides. Forever x2. That's double infinity!!!

    That nagging shoulder issue you might have? Abra Kadabra! IT'S BACK WITH A VENGEANCE! WHY??? BECAUSE YOU'RE PUTTING YOUR WEIGHT ON IT FOR INFINITY INTENSITY FOR ??REASONS??

    I can't wait until week 5 of the program where I can drop them.

    That was super smooth for being above RPE. I know looks can be deceiving, but if I was forced to guess how much more you could lift judging off of that video, I'd swear you have another 10kg in you.

    Good call on the knees. I definitely was not able to get my body into a good position at the bottom. I think it's almost entirely down to poor hip mobility. That give me one more thing to work on...

    Amen Brother! You'll get no argument from me, lol.
    You could definitely just swap them out like Wolf said. On the other hand, I feel like it's good to do stuff that sucks every now and then. I've always felt like it's a slippery slope once I start eliminating exercises I don't like. But that's just me.

    Cheers man, I definitely did not have 10kg more haha, was just a very good @9 rep for me.
    Will have 130 pretty soon regardless.

    yeah deficit sumo is nasty haha, probably good practice though, I imagine you'll figure out a good position with a few tries at it.

    Wolf, what's your programming like since you finished the RTS adaptive templates? Are you in a volume block with some occasional heavy singles, or what?

    Agreed it does need more ham/glute work. What about a DL variation on day 3? Good looking setup though.

    8*5@70% are easy man youre only looking @5-7rpe xD

    I actually don't agree with the need to program more ass work.. Already 6lifts per week which hammer the Glutes. Unless it's abd based gpp

    Everyone can do more band hammy curls tho! But I've only just got him curling to help fix his bicep tweaks on bench so Im not holding my breath on that... XD

    Yeah it's easy, but it's tedious. There are quicker ways to get the same stimulus I think. Don't mind me, carry on.

    Hypertrophy wise, probably quicker methods, though most would generate more fatigue.
    For the amount of clean strength work you get in I think It's actually hard to beat, I also don't mind spending 30m on a movement tbf

    My gym is on thin ice. They got fined $1000 last week when some inspector found 5 people working out inside. "Inside" is a HUGE space. Probably safer for 5 people to be in that space than in the small outside area. But of course as usual the government doesn't give a s*** about safety, discretion, or individual responsibility. Only their rules. They could get bigger fines in the future. Not sure if they intend to go to court.

    I'm liking working on strict curl. I've added 20 lbs to my max in 8 days. Makes me wonder if I should add singles to other isolations like lateral dumbbell raises.
    Current.................365 / getting / there.........185 lbs
    Pre-COVID..............335 / 295 / 499..............185 lbs
    July 1, 2019................9 week cut.................164 lbs
    Late April 2019.........285 / 275 / 440.............178 lbs
    Oct, 2018..............175x6 / 145x6 / 275x5......163 lbs

    Hey guys, we had a random ice storm on Monday and most of my city has been out of power and confined indoors until about yesterday for the most people, so this is regrettably my first lifting session of the week.

    I did some other stuff too, but here's me almost pulling 5 plates:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G-IsMIf9SNg
    Bench: 315
    Squat: 315
    Deadlift: 475

    Anyone who ran the Calgary Barbell 8 Week Program:

    I'm averaging about +3 hours per session, did you notice your sessions lasting that long? I don't think it's a problem for me, but maybe I'm taking too many warm-ups or rest between sets?

    I'm loving their 8 week program right now, always feels like I have gas in the tank, and my form weaknesses are getting eliminated one by one.

    Example today:


    Light weight but form feels substantially better than what I was doing before. Video below of before:


    Also, I never really barbell bench pressed before this program. I always opted for weighted dips, and now I'm at a point where I'm getting comfortable with the form.




    I'm loving Pause Squats too! Not in the video, but after this session I learned that tightening up my back, centering my weight, keeping bar path perfectly vertical up and down, makes squatting incrementally easier. My last set felt like RPE 4 as a result of form tweaks, but unfortunately not captured on video.

    Do you have a program in mind you're planning on running to ramp up for the big 3?

    90 min to 2 hours a session for me for all 3 cycles I ran it in the past, from the minute I started until the minute I finished. Longer if I did extra ab work, as in in my first cycle.

    You would have made that with better glute and lat engagement. Looks like a lumbar dominant pull, which is harder to lock out. Get your starting position tighter, shove those scapula down your back, screw your arms into your torso with your lats.

    See this Gibbs vid, around 12:05

    Agreed, also a bit more positive shin angle and focusing on keeping that push into the floor going not just pull.

    It's kind of awkward switching to a flat back pull. Some never make it.

    Yes, it makes lockout easier but can also really cut your horsepower breaking the floor. Especially if you have built a good chunk of strength at those joint angles.

    Id look into paused deads... 2ct 1" off the floor with a Completely flat back allowing no rounding as your main deadlift assistance work.

    Possibly some dead stance good mornings for size and iso strength.. And if you care enough, to limit your comp pulls to loads where you can keep mostly flat.

    Moving into a slightly heavier block now.
    Still a volume block, but these are weights I haven't touched for at least 5 weeks. Squat feels good, bench feels tough, but some tricep work 2 days ago might have had some effect on that.
