Absolutely insane. 

I still can't wrap my head around how he can put that weight over his head.

Will be interesting to see how far he can go.

 

 

On another note:

I tried occlusion training for the first time today with leg extensions. Def one of the most intense things I've done in training. 

Another guy did it for bicep curls and he got the most vascular arms I've ever seen.

Had a pretty disappointing meet today. 5/9. Wasn't able to hit any of my gym PRs.

On squats I hit 130kg but then I racked before the command. Stupid mistake. Bench I tried to hit a 4kg PR for third attempt and missed it.

Most disappointing was my DL though. Hit 165kg super easy and fast in the gym about a month ago and missed 2 attempts at 160kg.

Could be due to losing 1.5kg since I tried those PRs. I'm gonna need to switch up my programming too.

What's occlusion again?

blood flow constriction.

 

Basically wrap up below/above the body part being trained with a sleeve/wrap/resitance band etc and then train it in so that when the wrap comes off it gets a huge influx of nutrient rich blood OR in efforts to keep nutrient rich blood in the muscle being trained... At least that's my understanding.

Go see a physical therapist or masseuse who works with athletes.

There are injuries that time will not fix on its own.

One of my wife's coworkers did those. Shes miserable and psycho.

The whole bodybuilding competition thing is kind of weird. I get wanting the physique, I dont get the parading on stage in a speedo

You did the 3 day Sheiko, right?

One of the best lifters in my club had a bad meet result on that program. She thought the intensity was too low during meet prep and that the freq was too low for deadlifts (once per week). She put up bigger number 3 weeks out than on meet day.

100% my thoughts exactly. 3 weeks out I tested my maxes and hit great PRs with a lot of room for more but I didn't want to push it.

This was my first time on a low intensity type program and I guess its just not good for me. I feel like I need to DL more. Really really disappointed because my DL was my best lift. When I tested pulled 165kg at the gym, I for sure thought I could've pulled at least another 10kg.

I can imagine you're frustrated now but I don't think you should make drastic conclusions.

According to her (and she's a top national lifter and Worlds competitor), it was the "mock-meet" or test-day, whatever you want to call it, three weeks out that destroyed her meet prep. Doing a full mock meet only three weeks out will take a heavy toll on your body and she didn't recover enough up until the meet. I think that most people see no benefit in doing a full meet in training so close to the actual meet.

 

My coach also has some problems with the program, which in addition to the mock-meet, is that the intensity in the last weeks is a bit low and that the deadlift frequency could be higher. Both of them like an approach with more frequency (2-4 times per week for all lifts), and if you're going down that route, you'll have to trade the higher frequency for either less intensity or less volume (or a combination). 

 

I don't think you should discard high volume/lower intensity altogether. It has it's place. In the beginning of a training cycle, when you're far out from the meet, you usually keep the intensity low and volume higher to build more muscle mass and recover from the last peaking phase. Then, as you get closer to the meet, you reduce the volume and up the intensity. This assumes that the frequency is held somewhat constant though the whole training cycle.
