New PR just now after finishing up smolov, did 450x1 no belt and no knee wraps. Almost got pinned but I managed somehow, was just saying heels,heels,heels inside my head and it worked. Seeing stars afterwards. icon_gu_b_slayer[1].gif

 

Added 40lbs to my squat, so overall I think Smolov was a fun experience for me since I love squatting. Only did through the base mesocycle. 

Everyone should at least do it once. devil.gif

Recently people are staring at me when I lift. Have they never seen people snatch or C&J before? Would prefer they keep to the cable machine doing that abs exercise where it looks like they're trying to suck their own dick.

Got light-headed when going for 140kg front squat yesterday. Luckily was able to get it on the rack before passing out. Guess it was pinching a blood vessel or something. Kinda scary, but collected myself and got back under it a few minutes later with success. Unfortunately, I'm coming to the conclusion that I need to get a lot stronger.... since my C&J PR is about 10kg under my 1RM front squat.

I'm 30 lbs lighter and he and I lift approximately the same ratios to bodyweight. I'd call it a tie.

not srs

I definitely do have a wider waist - mainly from all the oblique and off-set carries work I do that I find helps my squat and pull.  If there was one thing I could do it would be to reduce that a bit - I've been reading up on some new research on how to bring the pelvic floor and transverse abdominals back in tight.  Apparently pregnant women (which is oddly enough how I found out more about this from a friend who was looking to tighten back up and asked me to research more), powerlifters and strongman, as well as bodybuilders (mainly because modern usage includes a lot of GH for bodybuilders) really have issues with this diastasis and you can train your body to fix the issue.  I'll probably do some sort of self-trial with pictures over a 12 week period and see if I can make any noticeable changes - though it'll be slightly hard to isolate the variables.

Do share. I have low back issues and this would help the instability.

Two random thoughts from squats today:

1. Tried to use the Robertson approach. Felt like I wasnt getting enough depth by "sitting back." It seemed to just result in my butt/hips shooting back. Then needed to use my quads/hamstrings to actually get depth. I am sure I am doing it wrong.

2. Nagging groin injury always feels better after squatting. I wonder if that means the nagging pain is just scar tissue that I need to break-up. Going to see a doctor soon.

Axelman: could also mean that getting blood to the area helps.

I think the huge volume of pull ups im doing is helping my pressing motions. Feel much sturdier when I press. Could also be the wraps though. 36kg per arm for 3x5 on the db overhead press flew up today, usually it's a bit hard. Will give 38s a try next time. I am so excite to get to 42.5kg on either the db incline or db overhead press (I only have a 4kg per arm difference between overhead and low incline wtf) so that I can use the big black weights (BBW lol) made by gypsey gym owner instead of the store bought ones, which go from 2-40kg. It's really weird though, he made them all with really skinny handles, they go up to 75kg and the handles are still tiny on those ones.

Agreed. Do you think I can deduce anything about the nature of the injury from that or do all injuries behave this way?
