  • Squat

I got a squat suit 2 sizes larger on the recommendation of David since you can take a suit in but can’t take it out. Unless you want to take it to a nice seafood dinner and have some lackluster conversation.

 

That bad boy went right on! Holy shit I did not waste ¾ of my training session grinding into a suit made for a tween and then cursing my voluptuous thighs when I can’t get out of it. What a nice change of pace.

 

355 3x5

 

Anthony’s roommate was also in for the day getting ready for his first meet and needed a lot of squat tweaks but let me tell you, that bad boy looked 300x better by the end of the session. Changed the stance and bar position, and worked on creating tension from the feet up through the legs and hips, breathing, and back tightness. He looked like  a new man by the end.

Plate dime 5 1 set plate 2 dimes for 2 sets since my back was still feeling a little weird.

Internet friend Kayla came to visit us all the way from a Dakota (which one? I don’t remember!). She recently bought some training briefs so she worked up in those and hit I think 380 which was the heaviest she’s ever had on her back (the most she had done in briefs was 275x3) so that was exciting to see her keep throwing the weight on and hit some big numbers.

 

I was helping her for a little and then Dave came over to assist. I will always, always defer to Dave when he’s helping a lifter and I am in the vicinity. As an aside, I asked him if I should work on her pick at all since he was working on the actual squat part. He held off and then after a few attempts where her pick looked unsteady, he said, and I quote “YES YOU ARE RIGHT WORK ON THE PICK”.

 

OH MY GOD I EVEN HAVE WITNESSES THIS IS THE FIRST TIME DAVID HAS OUTRIGHT TOLD ME I WAS CORRECT LET IT BE KNOWN IN OCTOBER OF 2019 AT ELITEFTS IN LONDON OHIO DAVID LESLIE TATE TOLD ME, LILY STAROBIN, THAT I WAS RIGHT. I wish we had video cameras in there so I could turn that into my ringtone.

 

After that I put my big ass shirt on.

 


 

  • Bench Press
  • + work up to 75% Pm for 3 sets of 5.
