Trouble with Quibbles

Posted in Gym Strength by Mike on March 28, 2008

Jump Rope 3:00 X 2
With some stretching and mobility in between

Squat
135 X 5
225 X 5
315 X 3
365 X 2
405 2 X 2
315 X 5
225 X 15
I shot a bunch of video of the  heavier sets, I probably won’t embed it as it’s looking for a white or red light call from powerlifters but if you want it, it’s on YouTube

Bench
135 X 5
185 X 4
225 X 3
275 X 2
295 X 1
315 X 2
275 X 4
I heard so much crap while I was trying to do these. When I loaded the 315 it was with 2 plates, a quarter and two dimes on each side. Then I started to hear about how I needed to  put three plates on instead. I didn’t care, it’s been ages sine I hit 300+, I just wanted to do it. So I swapped ’em, because I don’t care. Then I started to hear about how my plates were loaded, in high school we loaded the first one facing in then the rest out so you could tally them easier. I heard all facing in, I heard all facing out. I didn’t care, I just wanted the bench. It’s amazing I even did it after that. I’m glad I did though.

Trap Bar Deadlift (assuming the bar is 45)
135 X 1
245 X 1
335 X 1
445 X 1
535 X 0/2
I heard more crap about my approach on this one but I can understand. I was just kind of feeling it. I was thinking about farmers carry in strongman. Unfortunately, I think my legs had seen too many squats to make a solid go of it and I got stuck at 535 when I really needed to go to 600. Next Friday I think this will be my first lift.

Barbell Row
40K X 5
60K X 5
80K X 5
100K 2 X 5
120K 2 X 2
I was really surprised by how heavy these went.

I didn’t get as much done this workout as I usually try to but it was heavy for me and that is what I wanted.

    I don’t know the rules for power lifting, but from what I saw on the video, your hamstrings broke parallel. Your hip crease did not get lower than the top of your knees.

    It is possible you went lower than I picked up on the choppy youtube video. When I am questioning something I did, I take it into windows movie maker and go frame by frame.

    That’s why I lift at home – that many morons in one place trying to tell me how and what to do would lead to something very ugly! Buy yourself a shirt that says “Mind your own business”

    I think we all want your gym. Scott’s is coming along better than mine, but I’ll have my day 🙂

    Usually my headphones say “mind your own business” but I needed a spot on the bench and that’s how it all starts.

    I would love to have Chris’s gym. I slowly building mine, just ordered a trap bar this weekend. I was inspired by your lifts in the workout. The gym your are training at is really sweet. I would enjoy going there.

    admittedly, relative to any commercial gym I have ever been in, this gym is the best ever.
