    Nice lifting! I always appreciate the coaches videos. It's good information to compare my technique to yours. (Please hint to someone you want a tripod for your birthday.)

    Squats are looking good.

    I like watching your squats and then comparing them to mine to see where I need to make adjustments.

This'll probably be the last 3x5 week on squats..
    I regretted not doing this. Jeremy does it when he has to reset due to injury or something and I really took way longer than i needed to get back to 300+ work sets. I'll remember that next time. (fingers crossed I won't have to for a long time!)

    Today was solid. Long, but solid. Now that I'm back at/near previous working weights again, I remember what a marathon these workouts are. I will enjoy switching to the split routine next week, methinks.

    Also, lifted in my Rogue 1/2" heel shoes for the first time. I liked them.
    November is all that matters! This makes me happy.

    Glad you like your new ruby slippers.

    Yessir. The ruby slippers as Mr. Kong referred to them. I think these half inchers and I will get along just fine (insert obligatory that's what she said).

    Glad you guys can benefit from the vids. There are better technical squatters than me, and the set-up of the gym doesn't allow for the best angles, but I'm always glad when I hear of anyone benefitting their own lifting from what I post.

    or just buy that(or one of the 100s of clones on amazon) right now. You can send me the extra $20 if you want though.

    I use one just like it, if not that one. Works perfectly fine and there's always something to set it on. It also wraps around stuff, but I haven't had to do that yet. I just drag one of the taller "plyo boxes" things that my gym has over to where I am.
    I guess some aren't so thrilled with the angles after all. Equipment and walls are in the way of getting good angles, but footage would be slightly better with one of these fancy gadgets. Birthday is in January, but I didn't get anything for my half birthday that just passed in July, so...

    I hear you man. I remember thinking it was taking you a while to get back there. People seem to crave complexity but I've found the 3x5 to be useful for many things besides the basic Novice LP. But yes, hopefully neither of us will need to do this again for quite a while!

    It was your comment more than anything else (about how three weeks really isn't going to make a huge difference) that knocked me off my stupidity perch. Doing the meet with all you guys, rather than by myself, is more than worth the few weeks of training. There's always 2014! What sealed it was finding out women and lighter men lift separately on Sunday. That means I can keep my commitment to the people I told I'd take to the meet; they'll lift Sunday, and I'll lift on Saturday. Good shiz.

    SKRONG is the goal!

    Ya, there was a bit of knee slide-age on some of those reps, especially set three. Not too bad, but a little. It felt much worse when I was doing them than seeing them afterwards.

    Haha, that guy is my bench press spotter. He's an ATC who works in the PT Clinic that's in the gym. Good guy.

    Light, easy day today.

    Squat
    45x5x2, 95x5, 135x5
    Notes: Literally just did these to warm up. Didn't stop because of any problems, just think my left TFL or whatever is so damn tight would be happier with a more full break between heavy squat sessions. Felt good though.

    Press
    45x5, 95x5, 135x5, 175x5, 195x3, 215x1, 175x5
    Notes: 175x5 feels much lighter after going up to 215x1. That is all.

    Chins
    BW x4x4
    Notes: Decided I'm going to try a run of strict dead-hang chins. I've been using the stretch reflex at the bottom. Since I've been inconsistent with chins AND this was the first time I was doing them strict, I kept volume low. Will increase steadily, no challenge here today.

    C2 Erg
    The Feigen-ditioning Protocol: 0:20/1:40 x 8 - except I did the first two as warm-ups. Also since I haven't been consistent with conditioning, took a little ramp up. I did two of these @ 1:24, the rest were a little slower.

    I'm glad they split it up this way too. Last time, I felt so bad because I didn't get to see all of the girls lifts. This time I'll be right up in Rori and Jenica's ear cheering them on and taking video. There will be no missing footage of this epic event.
