Re: Best Belts?

at 6'4", I'd probably stick with the 4" honestly, unless you want to get 2 belts. 4" will make a substantial difference for you squatting, and getting into position will not be too difficult.

Re: Best Belts?

I mainly do powerlifting now. Back when I was dabbling with the oly lifts, it worked fine. Just as well as any other leather power belt I'd presume. I know some say it sticks out, but that would...

Re: Wendler's 5/3/1 and Deadlift day

I've had great success with 5/3/1 and trying to manage my fatigue on the + set by always trying to leave 1 rep in the tank. I never go to failure, and I never go for a rep I know I wont hit. Once...

Re: Best Belts?

Its pretty much a 1 man operation. Dean takes the orders, custom makes the belts, and sends them to you. Unbelievably nice guy. Try calling again, leave a message if you didn't. He custom made a...

Re: thoughts on my strength program

Correct, and once again - I agree with Eric. Although my recommendation would still be to focus on just flat out getting stronger at this point - but I understand your desire to make the workouts...

Re: Deadlift PR - 545# x 5

Thanks Brad. As an experiment, I included them as a main lift on a 5th day about 1.5 years ago, and actually put them on a 5.3.1 schedule. I haven't done them consistently (I phase them in and out...

Re: Deadlift PR - 545# x 5

Thanks everyone.

@ Drew Watson, I am not participating in the Open. I stopped doing posted WOD's a while ago to focus on strength. I do still throw together simple metcon style training sessions...

Deadlift PR - 545# x 5

Re: Strength Program or CF or Both?

What do you think the top crossfitters do?

Do you think Rich Fronning is good at CrossFit, because he does WOD's 12 months out the year?

Look, I'm not saying you can't do strength and metcon's...

Re: Strength Program or CF or Both?

Eric is correct. Listen to his advice.

Trying to combine SS with crossfit metcons will reduce the effectiveness of the LP to the point you are just wasting your time.

If you are at a novice...

Re: 2013 USAPL West Cary Fall Festival of Power

Thanks.

I normally walk around between 192-196. The usapl meets around here still use the old weight classes, so I'd have to drop all the way down to 181#. I've never tried cutting weight before,...

Re: Big 3, 1RM PRs from August, green or red light?

Nice lifts man. Are you planning to do a comp?

Pause on bench will need to be longer - they have commands, so you may want to get your training partner to start giving you commands, just for...

Re: Dear At Large Nutrition...

Be aware that different protien powders have different weights - so the 30g scooper that came with your Muscletech may not be the same size as the 30g scooper that comes with Nitrean+.

Re: Rhabdo is very real

Chris - curious on your opinion on the thought of recovery being trainable - and something that can be adapted to and periodized for - just like hypertrophy, strength, etc.??

No need for a new thread - but hit a new PR again this week.
