Last time I was at this place, just getting back into low bar squatting hit 440, I think. Looked hard. “Ugly” said Old Coach. “Also high.” Video proved him right. Hey you want to try my scientific Bulgarian program it’s how I’ve become such a success since I left here. Good thing I stopped doing your program and now have come back in shame.
Today not like I’m gonna convert him yet but I squatted 455 and it was legit. Will post vid later maybe Monday. That fucking stiff Pasanella 60 lb bar with sharp knurling can suck my dick but I used it anyway. I need as much practice with this thing as possible as I feel it played a part of my failure in my last meet. Not blaming a bar for my being a pussy I’m just saying if I can credit a deadlift bar for putting 30 lbs on my deadlift I can credit this piece of shit for intimidating me.
Weight: who knows, eating my parents food which would give Celica an orgasm it’s just carbs and veggies and fruits, tiny servings of lean meat, supplemented with my mom making a lot of desserts since we are visiting.
Low Bar Squat: 59×6,4 (did 2 sets with bar bc switched racks bc for some reason the flooring in one rack was like those interlocking multicolored foam squares you find in a nursery, but not big enough to fit the rack might as well squat on those Valsa-sliders that Ben Bruno likes) 59bbx4, 150bbx3, 240bbx2, 290bbx1, 330bbx1, 370bx1, 400, 425, 445, 455; 340x10x3
BTN Press: 45×6, 85×4, 105×3, 120×3, 135, 145, 150, 155; 125x9x3
No excuses esp since I took these off a rack rather than doing a half-assed hang clean, a push press then dropping them on my brain stem first.
Sumo+monster bands. I prefer the floor mat situation at my gym. Only 2″ and 4″ deficit were available. Which is ironic bc Old Coach has record plates down to, not kidding, 1/100 of a pound. Not recording warmup sets:
265 off 4″, 350 off 2″, 410 off floor
Time: 2:30. Approximate, everything just takes forever because of having to find things in unfamiliar gym, and not wanting to leave and go home and get nagged by wife and parents and then not work out for 2 days.
