strong bench man! hope you've recovered from the flu so you can get those weights up again!
Skeptic: Thanks for the kind words. Guitarist+Weights+Aussie=Legend in my book
JB: There's plenty that's swole about me :keke:
Tech: It's good that I can still get a rise out of you after all this time :carduforvip
Tweak: You're just remembering our night together
Braaq: Mainly training because I love it. While I aim to get stronger I don't really want to get any bigger. I feel most comfortable at about 86kg and my proportions are about right. At 88kg (this is dry morning weight remember) I'm right on the borderline of having shoulders too big for my head and neck. The main purpose of the routine was to increase my weak points and develop my snatch and C&J to compete in the State Champs. Now the comp is off the cards I want to improve my technique. Hence the 80% of max; this way I can practice moving the bar fast for many sets.
Rage: BOO! Studies and apathy have kept me from posting in the main sections.
Hypo: thanks Hypo
good to be
Tunen:So three reps, except drop sets which are 12-15, etcOriginally Posted by Tim so that people wouldn't get confused
It was bloody cold this evening. I hate having to put on long clothes to get warm enough to train and then be too hot half way through! Having sweat running down your legs on a cold night is not pleasant.
I'm moving back to power versions of the weightlifting movements. This is mainly to allow ease of practice, but also to take the pressure off my knees and shoulders with the low catch. I had been noticing that the low catch I was ending up too far forward so I will look into my technique on the next training cycle.
Power Snatch x3 reps
Power C&J x2 reps
100kg (done for one rep as was just getting into back squat position to walk 10m back to my rack for lunges)
Lunge x5 reps
1 Legged Hammy curl x6 reps
DB single leg calf raise x8 reps
Listening to: Within Temptation, Rodrigo y Gabriela, Nightwish, Kamelot
meccas strongest gotta be braaq though, come on he deadlifts 270 kg and benches 140 kg for 12-15 reps on a fucking incline lol...
tunen is megastrong too though, probably second strongest on the board, insane at the squats and deads for sure.
Out of the night that covers me,
Black as the Pit from pole to pole,
I thank whatever gods may be
For my unconquerable soul.
In the fell clutch of circumstance
I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance
My head is bloody, but unbowed.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
Thanks for the kind words Pickle!
Bulkboy I think you miss an important point: Braaq's lifts proportional to bodyweight, while strong, are not huge. Pound for Pound means that a 550lb deadlift (I don't know where the 270kg came from, unless he added 50lb to it in a week) by a 240lb lifter is equal to a 435lb deadlift by a 190lb lifter. The last time I deadlifted I pulled 200kg.
I think it is also worth noting my tags. I don't use wraps, straps, belts, spotters, prohormones, etc, etc. Gotta really compare apples with apples.
For my money Tunen is the strongest, but Pickle may be right with Scholar being strongest.
Completely true, and that just makes your lifts that much more impressive as well.Originally Posted by tim290280
Pound for pound Scholar's one max lifts I last saw would be the strongest. But for being completely natural and for reps I would have to agree with you that Tunen is the strongest as well.Originally Posted by tim290280
