Squats 'n Stuff

7/17/14, Turn down for front squats

squatpilgrimvstheworld:

Fronties- 225lbs 3x3

Bench Press- 170lbs 3x5 frist rep paused

Rows- 205lbs 3x5

Ring Dips- +35lbs x5, 5, 6

Butterfly pull up practice.

Didn’t die even though I did Fran on my rest day. Front squats were a little harder, but I also made a 10lbs jump because 1 person was in the class, so they wanted me to work in with them for front squats. They were doing 235lbs and I didn’t want to change plates a lot. Bench was okay. The closer grip was harder, and so was pausing. I still should’ve gotten more reps on the last set though. Rows were a little rough. Dips felt easy until the last two reps then I died.

A guy in the pharmacy was picking up medicine with his child, and when his phone went off the ringtone was “Turn down for what.”

While exploring the basement of the new gym space we are moving into, we found a nativity scene, a deli meat slicer, an old ass computer, so decoration lights, and a baby’s car seat. Pretty sure there was a ritualistic sacrifice down there. Also our lease says we are not allowed to make pornography there ):

Fuck the lease. Make some porn. You already found the perfect set.

"Fuck The Lease" would be the perfect title/subject matter.

Belarusian weightlifter Petr Asayonak squats 639 lbs easily and then fails with 661 at 170.  To put this in powerlifting perspective, the all-time WR without wraps @ 165 is 606.

Layne Norton hit the best squat in the 205 lb class at USAPL Raw Nats with 650 lbs.  And it was pretty damn smooth.

CJ Cummings (-62kg) aka @cummingzswagg jerking a new youth/junior/senior American record in the C&J with 153kg/337lbs. While this is an incredible achievement for a lifter of any age, he just turned 14 in June! By all accounts, he is the greatest weightlifting talent in the history of the USA and unless something goes wrong or he leaves the sport, he should completely rewrite the record books. Congrats CJ! Go follow him on Instagram, you will be watching greatness develop.

fulltimeillin said: did you smash though

No, but I got fucked pretty hard and no one even bought me dinner first.

postgraddreams said: Lol at the last line! :3

fulltimeillin said: good lighting is a key feature of all gym videos

It is paramount. We visited the new space for the gym today, and I forgot to check the quality of the downlighting.

postgraddreams said: I was sad about missing slurpee day too

Now we have to wait almost a year ): Time to turn these feels into gainz.

7/15/14, I did Fran on my rest day ):

I texted this to my friend and he asked me if I “smashed”

Squats- 245lbs 3x5

Press- 110lbs x5, 5, 8+2

Power Snatch- 132.5lbs 6x2

Chin Ups- 50lbs x3, 55lbs x3, 60lbs x3, 25lbs x8

Squats were challenging, but done on a timer in about 8 minutes. Presses were easy. On the last set I racked it after 8, then decided to not be a jelly-dicked mormon and went back for two more right away. Power Snatches were rough. Some press outs, and some were forward. Chin Ups were hard because my triceps are still fucked, and my right shoulder was bothering me. Darius squatted 355 3x5, his LP is still going strong as shit.

Today Carlos programmed Fran to initiate Gym Girl’s boyfriend who is visiting. I feel bad for ruining his Texas Method day, and also for the other thing. He seems nice despite his dumb Canadian accent. After everyone did Fran I decided to go because I am dumb and hate myself. I got 55 reps in 10 minutes as RX’d. Last time I did fran was at the CF L1 seminar and I DNF’d with 65lbs. It’s hard as shit with strict pull ups, I’d have to learn butterflies to get better. And my push press sucks.

Man, eating is hard.
When you ain’t been eating for the past week to trying and return to your previous consumption is difficult.

Little baby stomach problems.
