Going from cross country to powerlifting might have that effect.

I think distance runners are pretty elastic because running like that relies on very little energy from the working muscles so they just bounce around off their tendons all day long. But yeah powerlifters are pretty much the epitome of inelastic athletes and probably even more so geared vs raw.

Hit 455 for a 10lbs PR and tried 475 twice. Both times I missed the rep several inches above the knee at which point there was no budging it at all:



I'm really happy with my DL progress but I really wish I would have hit that 475. Of course the good news is that I've never been strong enough for my lockout to be a problem.

So now it's time to start the training cycle over again. I want to up my back strength-endurance and really figure out the best way to start my pull. I expect to hit 5 plates next time I go for a PR attempt in 15-18 weeks

I have decided to do the UPA meet in July and do the deadlift only. Now will I be 181 or 165? I've been hovering at 180 for a couple of months.

Just messing around today. I tried DLs with a pause at the knee and I don't like them very much. Felt like dogshit off the floor (tried to pull the slack out first which didn't work too well). I just want to take a break from the competitive movement all together and figure out how to start it in the next phase. I really like the Sn DL with a pause at the knee on the way up and down (think it's a good idea to train some eccentric lowering). I also think the competitive DL is tearing my back up too much. Didn't get a chance to try the Rubish 45 degree extensions. Did PC to 195 for a few singles. I think I'll work on the Sn DL and PC. I think my power clean 1RM was 245 and that was just messing around and realizing some increased strength from DLs (particularly off the floor) I really like PCs they're just flat out fun. I'm eyeing 315 as a solid benchmark and I think that I can do it this year with a plan and a healthy wrist

I'm still not feeling that close to 100% that food poisoning really took a lot out of me (got so dehydrated I was thinking I'd need to get IV fluids) Usually I bounce back off sickness pretty fast. I really wanted to come to the intramural meet today. One thing stood out to me after I looked at the results. Someone went 405 on DL and for their second attempt they tried 500 and missed. Questionable choice there. Then again some people would probably think some of the shit I do is just as retarded. None of my business really, but it did make an impression on me.

My feeling is that if you're ever going to make a questionable decision, it might as well be at a powerlifting meet. I know everyone talks up a conservative approach, but if it's the moment you trained for and you want to go for a big attempt, you should grant yourself that experience.

I also think the guy pulled two days before the meet and decided last-minute to do it--I know he pulled 515 during that session.

Definitely go 181. Or, hell, go as a light 198. Keep everything as simple as possible for the first time. That's advice that a lot of people ignore, but I still give it out to anyone who will listen.

Oh that makes a lot of sense maybe he was thinking he'd still win overall men's so he gambled on it. Still seems like a big jump in weight even if your max is mid-500's

Definitely listening to your advice but ill have been training DL sorta seriously for the better part of a year by then and I would want to be as competitive as possible even though I'm not an elite caliber lifter.

Donno the best way to format this but I want to eat properly and ill log my diet.

1.65lbs choice porterhouse (for 4.99/lbs!!!!)
20oz grape tomatoes
5 tangelos
1 head lettuce

There's a term for people who are over 6' and weigh 165, holocaust survivors.

You could log in MyFitnessPal and then just screen cap it, that might be the most easy and informative.

Feels shitty. Had a shitty day in the gym. Tried to distract myself from that by talking about dumb shit. Makes me feel even shittier like why did I go to the gym in the first place. Tbqh my piss is only starting to look healthy again. Donno why it takes so long to rehydrate and everything -- this is the kind of dumb shit that aggravates me for thinking about. jejs/&,&£&&/&:&@-@

I felt much better after writing that. I think I'm gonna stop logging while my squat and power clean training picks up some steam. Probably start back up when I'm deadlifting. So I'm going "off the grid" as I've heard Kyle say before.
