    Failed 157.5kg for 5x2 on the paused box squat today. Feels bad man.Went 3x2 then a single then I missed it twice, i am disappoint with myself. Instead of going 160kg for 5x2 on friday i'll just try 5x2 again, hate not increasing weight every session. Gf has joined a gym, this gonna be lolzy. Won't lift with her because I'll just end up doing deads again, attempting 500lb or something, getting a hernia and yelling you miring. Also she'd laugh at my pre lift dancing.

    Jim Wendler:

    Question: Can I use straps for deadlifting?

    Answer: While I understand the use of straps – and used them often when I was younger – I’ve come to the conclusion that, barring some sort of injury, you shouldn’t use them. I say this because:

    1. Your grip will quickly catch up to your hip/leg/back strength.
    2. Grip strength is essential in all sports, and in life.
    3. For overall muscle growth, it’s best to train without the aid/support of equipment.
    4. It’s also best to use as few "crutches" as possible when you train. Take it from someone who’s learned the hard way: ditch the straps as soon as you can and train minimally for maximum results. Get stronger all over. You’ll thank me.

    Wendler [​IMG]. Wendler is honestly a behemoth of a man. I would agree with what he says, just like using overhand grip until the last possible weight.

    Thoughts? Questions? Concerns?

    If for no other reason, everybody should try their hands on rings so they can watch the Olympics with a fresh appreciation of what they do.

    i am pretty pumped to watch the olympic gymnastic events. i was watching the women's trials the other day and that was some pretty impressive stuff, not my own cup of tea but pretty damn impressive. i dont fully have an appreciation for oly lifting quite just yet, but will be fun to watch. here's hoping we dont see someone dislocate their elbow and drop 200kg on their head like that hungarian dude in beijing.

    gymnastics stuff reminded me of when i saw cirque du soleil, truly mind-bending shit. immensely jacked and strong dudes flying through the air catching eachother, freaky stuff

    NEVER

    Only deload weeks have came from injury.


    I am so excite to watch the massively shit opening ceremony for the London olympics. Dat NHS parade, dat hobo parade, dem farm animals to a back drop of aesthetic country side with simulated rain, dat reenactment of some riot, dat 70 something year old Paul Mccartney singing Hey Jude, which will probably be autotuned because he inevitably sounds shit now, dat looking shit compared to beijing hnnnnnnnnnng


    also dat East London.

    It's worth understanding that lifting doesn't make you stronger. Lifting damages your body. Healing from this damage is what makes you stronger. If you don't give your body sufficient opportunity to heal, you stop getting stronger. Full stop.
