5.1.18
Stuck at 135 BW. Haven’t used wraps in a year and worked up to a few singles:
355/365/375@9.5.
Chatted w/ people. Body cooled down.
385@9.9
335x2x4@9.5
Going to start squatting 2x a week again. ———————————————————
Note to Self (Ignore):
1. Using wraps to build back confidence.
2. I think I had 385 with a grind, but spotter was looking out for me so didn’t get to do all the work.
3. Distance between toes were about 18-20” apart with slight outward ~15 degree angle.
4. Belt was kind of loose. Location of holes on belt = too loose or too tight.
5. My back didn’t round with wraps @385 but rounds with sleeves @335. Leg strength correlation or breaking form to make up for weak legs?
6. Normally, my squats w/ wraps are 10# more than STrong sleeves. W/ SBD sleeves, I can’t even touch 365 atm. Does that mean I need an XS?
7. Remember to do elbow-wiggle move.
8. Legs are looking skinny. I need to get back to some bodybuilding exercises

#myC4 extreme came in today. Took 2/5 of a scoop and SHIT...that was like a full scoop of the regular c4, which I used to take 3/4 of. It’s been a while. I think my strength is returning! 🤪 #CellucorNation
———————————————————
Couldn’t do 274# last week. Ate 5 slices of pizza last night. Today, I probably could’ve had 295# if not for the bad spotter wasting my energy. Not his fault. I’m about two weeks behind on numbers. Let’s go ham, fam!
———————————————————
245P, 265, 275
285 (bad spotter)
285@9.5 (good spotter)

Slack pulls are normally done with a loaded bar, but if you do not want to waste time racking/unracking, just use a squat rack because the height of the lower support is about the same as a bar with 45# plates. This warmup exercise helps reduce setup time for your deadlift.
———————————————————
Steps:
1. Position feet for conv. or sumo.
2. Grab bar and pull against supports.
3. Position the rest of your body.
4. Pull hard and hold tight for 10-15s.
5. Do a few sets. Then, do a regular deadlift. Notice the magic.

My petty workout 2 weeks ago at @theprojectstrength #theprojectstrength. I can never return unless I break records at Summer Power Fest. Such a pity. 😩 Switching back to squatting with flats for the competition. Too much time needed to adjust to heels. @raychow1 @air.birinder.9314

I have signed up for my first, real powerlifting meet on June 30th taking place in Houston. I am currently behind on my numbers. It’ll be interesting to see what happens.

Nice to have @capitalofficial radio DJ @bensheppard93 in the cryotherapy tonight.

Chilling, literally. Minus 120. One way to cool down after the hottest day of the year! 😂😂😂

I GOT ROBBED‼️
Apparently, I was supposed to win “Best Lifter Award” for my practice meet, but I guess if you’re from out of state, you don’t qualify. I soda sad...not really.

My excuses for the day:
1. Left Houston at 2AM and got to Lafayette at 5AM.
2. Still recovering from the flu.
3. Only had 300 calories throughout the day.
4. 9 days of strictly vegan food so far.
