I've heard this a lot. My PowerLift Trainers certainly work just fine for me, but I do look forward to trying out a higher quality pair in the future. Have you heard much about the quality of the Rogue weightlifting shoes?

http://www.roguefitness.com/rogue-weightlifting-shoes.php

They're made by Do-Win. The leather makes me moist.
I am fairly certain that KevinAlvy has these or used to have these shoes. Maybe check with him

George and I have a pair of those. I like them a lot, but my heel is wood and I can't tell what material those are

Only issue we were having was that the rubber bottom was falling off the wood. They have gotten a lot of oly use though

I have Rogue do-wins with a 0.75" heel and they are great. Rogue doesn't sell them with a wood wedge but if you like that maybe you can find them from Powerfirm unless they are out of stock. When the outer sole wears out just get it replaced. They should last a while. I haven't used the more expensive Nike or Adidas shoes but they Do-Wins are quality shoes and you can always take them to a cobbler to get whatever alterations you'd like. I don't think you can do that with the Nike or Adidas as easily.

Buzzed Benching
1 Bench Press
185 lbs x 1 reps
200 lbs x 1 reps
225 lbs x 1 reps

250 was kind of slow but nothing too strenuous.

155 lbs x 3 reps
155 lbs x 3 reps
Workout notes:
Dips, Klokovs and pec deck after bench. I've been a functional alcoholic since Thursday, didn't sleep much the past few nights, and haven't benched consistently in about two months, so I'll take 10lbs off my meet PR at this point in my training.

Never eating at a buffet right before the time I normally lift again. Five hours later I still had too much of a bloat to put on my belt.

Still looks like that 440 moved well. It seems like your training is a lot more structured, how are you liking it?

I like it well enough. Still don't enjoy benching though.

315 lbs x 1 reps
365 lbs x 1 reps
365 lbs x 1 reps
415 lbs x 1 reps
440 lbs x 1 reps
Not a bad 440 considering I felt like a zombie

2 Speed Squat
265 lbs x 5 reps
265 lbs x 5 reps
265 lbs x 5 reps
265 lbs x 5 reps
265 lbs x 5 reps
265 lbs x 5 reps
3hb 3lb

3 Bench Press
165 lbs x 5 reps
165 lbs x 5 reps
165 lbs x 5 reps
165 lbs x 5 reps
165 lbs x 5 reps
Accidentally didn't bench last week. Guess I'll have to bench 4x this week to keep my 2x a week average. Everything paused and tight.

4 Weighted Dip
0 lbs x 10 reps
0 lbs x 10 reps
0 lbs x 10 reps
0 lbs x 10 reps
0 lbs x 10 reps
Rings

5 Pull-Up

Workout notes:
Facepulls and reverse cable fly at the end. Need to establish 440 as my daily minimum and start pushing my daily max over break when I can devote more time to recovery and reducing outside stressors. Bench should start being more sound when I'm consistent about upping the frequency.

1 Deadlift
405 lbs x 1 reps
455 lbs x 1 reps
505 lbs x 1 reps
515 lbs x 1 reps

2 Speed Deadlift
315 lbs x 3 reps
315 lbs x 3 reps
315 lbs x 3 reps
315 lbs x 3 reps

Workout notes:
Can't stop myself from daily maxing on deads. Maybe I should just make it part of the program because nothing bad has happened yet.
