B. GHRs – 10, 10, 25
C1. Rollouts (Weight vest) – 3 sets of 10
C2. BKSU (Weight vest) – 3 sets of 10
*I wanted 11 reps with 405. Unfortunately around rep 7 I started seeing stars. Rep 8 and 9 I was getting pretty dizzy and worried I may pass out. Since I train alone and had no spotter I bitched out and stopped at 9 reps. This dizzy BS doesn’t typically happen. But I blame too much caffeine and not enough food before training. But that’s my own damn fault. Either way – I decided to destroy some more squats after that set. Overall I was pleased with the session.

Just had a few free minutes so I decided hit a quick unplanned training session in the home gym. I just picked a couple of my weak points (abs/core/low back) that affect my weakest event (yoke) and got some good work in. Because no one ever got worse from doing some extra work.

I’m way behind on updating my training journal. I’ve been crazy busy lately so I’m just getting to it. I competed a few weeks ago in St. Louis’ Strongest Man where took First Place in the LW 231 class. There is a video of that in the previous log entry. The next day my wife and I flew to the Dominican Republic for a week long vacation. The following weekend I headed up to London, OH to the EliteFTS Headquarters for the LTT6 Seminar where I helped coach and also got to train Saturday and Sunday mornings at the UGSS sessions.
A. Deadlift -
Worked up to 495 x 9 – PR (Dead stop on each rep)
