    Not quite...

    So the goal today was just to meet the numbers from my last meet at a lighter weight class. Came into the day feeling pretty good.

    First 2 squats felt real good. I actually debated going for a PR on the 3rd, but decided to just stay with the plan. Unracked the bar and I could feel it the bar was too high on my back. Did I rerack it like a smart person? Of course not. Tried to push through but nope. Pretty frustrated because I'm pretty confident I would have hit it if I hadn't been a dumbass. No one to blame but myself. So finished with only a 225 (507) squat.

    Bench was 3/3 with a top at 162.5 (358). MIGHT have been able to go another 2.5, but overall satisfied considering the weight drop.

    Deadlift felt good and went 3/3. Ended up hitting a new PR at 255 (562) on the 3rd attempt.

    Overall, felt good with the progress. Didn't hit the squat number I wanted, but I know it was there. I also probably need to get better at grinding. Since I train alone, I'm probably more conservative than most so my kids don't walk in with me passed out on the floor.

    My man. Congrats on the PR and the bench number. Squat is frustrating for sure but a good learning experience. Time to keep getting stronger at the new bodyweight

    Hit a bench PR at 330. Losing an hour of sleep must have helped.

    Love the hypervolt but it’s costly, especially when I screwed up a charger or 3

    They’re kind of annoying to use but triggerpoint rollers for me as best bang for the buck by far. I’d go as far to say it’s better overall for recovery, the massage gun just feels great

    Get some type of reciprocating saw from Home Depot. Instead of a blade (that’s important) put a golf ball with a hole drilled in on it.

    This is version one, just holding us over until we move into a bigger home with an attached 2-3 car garage. Couldn’t have done this without hensleya’s help! (Now if Rep would just ship my fuckin flat bench…)

    Also, in addition to a missing flat bench, there are two glaring problems with the pic above (specific to the weight equipment, and yes obviously a grown man should need more plates than what I have.)

    See if you can find them.

    Everything is only hand tight. I have one of the massive bolts with me as I got tool shopping. You can see it missing bottom right.

    UPS also forgot to unload one my of 55lb plates. +1 for Fringe though, their customer service has been excellent.

    Just horse stall mats from Tractor Supply, $100 each. Get flat ones, avoid the diamond print like I have at all costs.

    I thought you could get DQed for that

    I know 600+ is too much to generally be considered dogging it but when you pull 1000+ I think it’s fair to say you did

    His squat at The Showdown on Sept/Oct whenever it was was 733. So he took like 82%. He deserves the pull. He works hard. But it kind of cheapens it a bit

    He said his priority was an upcoming meet and can’t squat heavy often.

    I don’t care other than damn, he pulled 1025

    Even if the ROM for his sumo is ridiculous, can’t help myself

    It’s nothing saucy but he won’t answer questions unless you’re subscribed to his Patreon. Like flat out will not help anyone on his IG. I understand you gotta make a living but come the fuck on. Dave Tate is out here answering DMs of dudes squatting 225 helping their form and Wenning is just being an asshole about it. Add in the rumors about him and underaged women and I’m alllll the way out on that fuck.

    I bought a concept 2 last year. Cardio sucks but if I'm going to do it, I think a rower is the way to go. I just have no idea what some goal #'s are to set for myself. I've been doing like 15 minutes at a 2:10/500m split pace. I go around 3400 meters and it burns around 200 cals.

    My coach has me on the rower 2x/week. Not sure of your goals but mixing in intensities and duration is a good idea for novelty and just generally building more ability. So like shorter HIIT stuff like 10s max effort every minute on the minute. Moderate stuff like you’ve mentioned above. Then add in some like 30 min stuff 1-2x a week at a light pace.

    I also hate cardio but can tell a noticeable difference in my lifts when I’m consistently adding in cardio.

    I just have an echelon bike but would love to add a rower to the garage gym.

    One of the biggest PEDs people are missing. Better cardio ability means more work capacity for lifting, better nutrient partitioning from food, etc.
