One big reason I've stuck to dumbbell bench on days I don't have a spotter....feel like I'd do pretty much the exact same thing if I were to get stuck.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

also, when i fail on bench I'm able to turn my head flat to the side and get from underneath that way. Although I don't wear glasses which would probably make that more complicated.

Meh, probably not a big deal, but i've never seen anyone start a squat with so much knee bend, though it did seem to lessen with every rep. Also, it looks like you are finishing slow and not pushing the hips through hard enough at the end

glasses plus my head is pretty huge. I can give it a shot next bench work out, though I'm putting all 3 sets of 150 up so it's irrelevant.

Really push those hips, got it. I'm still a little confused about the knee and hip angles at the top. I guess I'll read through SS when I get home. I thought your back angle stays relatively constant through the whole lift, which would mean if the bar is to remain over the midfoot at the top, your knees have to be bent.

I'm trying to figure out why KC's squat is so far ahead of mine while my presses and deadlift are ahead of his.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

Also, figured logging food is probably a decent idea, just to keep myself accountable.

Last week: 3 beers on draft night, 3 beers on Friday night, too much fast food, ****ty workout on Sunday, though I ate pretty well on Sat and Sun.

Today:
breakfast: 4 eggs scrambled with onions, green peppers, and a little 3yr old sharp wisconsin cheddar, cooked in a little butter. 1/2 grapefruit (I <3 grapefruit).

lunch: entree at work consisting of roasted chicken w/ rosemary, roasted (I think) squash, and mashed sweet potatoes. I didn't finish the mash potatoes but they were good. This was actually one of the better meals I've had at work.

afternoon snack: broccoli w/ olive oil and pepper, 1 can tuna w/ beaver deli mustard

dinner: salad w/ olive oil and balsamic vinegar consisting of mixed greens, celery, carrots, red cabbage, quinoa, and cucumbers. Ground round w/ onions, peppers, and garlic. I'm not sure exactly how much. I probably brought a little under 1/2 lb and ate a little more than 3/4 of it. I'll have the rest with my eggs tomorrow.

Later tonight after a walk I'll have an 8 oz glass of milk with 1 scoop gold standard double chocolate whey.
snacked on a few almonds here and there throughout the afternoon.

previous training maybe? I've always been weak in the upper body and never really trained it much at all. Presses are really a ***** to me. Plus my left shoulder feels smoked after each workout.

On the flip side, I've always had relatively strong legs from basketball, soccer, riding bikes constantly, and just generally running and jumping around a lot.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

ugh every comment makes me watch it again. It's still funny. The best part imo is after I get up off the floor I have this total "htf do I get out of here" thing going on. Not my best moment.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

6/30, Tues, B Workout

Squat
45x5x2
85x5
125x3
170x2
215x5x3

These went better than the last time I think. I kept my head down and that helped my hip drive. Last set got tough and I didn't keep my chest up enough on the last couple of reps.

Press
45x5x2
60x5
80x3
94x2
114x5x3

I used the 22lb bumpers. But the collars are pretty big so maybe that's a lb right there. Anyway these went pretty well. No reset yet! I really should be going in 2.5 increments now. I'll have to order those washers. Do they have 'em at home depot? I checked my neighborhood hardware store and the biggest they had were with 1" holes.

Power Cleans
45x5x2
60x5
75x3
89x2
116x3x5

These weren't so hot. My warmup sets before the 89x2 were done in the power rack because I was too lazy to stack plates, so they were an inch or two shy of full ROM. I was planning on doing 111 for the worksets but got greedy. I'm just not exploding enough. My 2 sets were very meh, 3rd set started strong but 3rd rep sucked. Same with 4th set. 5th set OK but I failed the final rep.. well I dumped it immediately just knowing I screwed up. Took a couple seconds rest and then did it.

I'll have some vids up later. Sorry nothing as awesome as the bench vid.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

8:30 am: 4 eggs scrambled w/ leftover ground round onions and peppers and cheddar cheese. 1/2 grapefruit.
12:30 pm: salad w/ olive oil and balsamic + turkey
4:00 pm: broccoli w/ olive oil and pepper and 1 can tuna w/ beaver deli mustard
7:00 pm: 1/2 lb (pre-cook weight) of 93/7 ground beef w/ onions, tomato, and garlic (my apt reeks of garlic) + small salad w/ olive oil
10:00 pm: PWO shake w/ raspberries, 1/2 cup oatmeal, spoonful of all natural PB, 1.5 scoops whey, 8-10 oz of whole milk.

had a handful of almonds for a snack at some point. May also have a couple gulps of milk before I go to bed.

how long was shipping? I won't be pressing again until Monday.

I think I might do a scaled back workout tomorrow since I'm flying to SD Thurs night. We'll see how I feel. My right groin was actually pretty mad at me during the workout. I did something to tweak it beforehand.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

i'm real close to the southern california warehouse (i should have just picked them up), but it was like 3-5 days if i remember correctly. i've read some reviews about the place and generally people swear by it, so expect prompt shipping and good communication about when it leaves the factory.

Hah just caught the bench vid pure awesomeness, I love how the music just rolls on well your struggling under the bar, so classic. I can't talk much though I've never lifted weights and just got SS to have a read through before giving it a crack, inevitably I to will probably be squashed before I know it. Keep up the good work, reading logs helps those thinking about giving it a go to get their ass into gear.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

today's lifts:

Squat - 215x5, set 1
Squat - 215x5, set 2. Dude tire-flipping at the end

Press - 60x5
Press - 115x5

I think I'm putting the bar too far back over my head. I noticed it in the 60x5 video and tried to do it less after that.

PC - 89x2 bar path kinda sucks
PC - 116x3, set 1
PC - 116x3, set 2

as always, comments appreciated.

I think bar path is ok as long as you aren't feeling a lever arm developing.

re: kidcolin does speed quarter box squats kettlebells with CHAINZZ

With the squats it seems like your weight drifts off your heels and onto the balls of your feet, making the exercise more quad dominant. I may be imagining things though as nobody else is commenting on that. Driving from your heels may be a good cue to get yourself more glute/ham activation.

Also sick press strength for your bench.

the bar path is super weird, its a very arced motion, it looks quite straight going down but when you come up it arcs alot. this looks kind of weird to me, and i do not know what is causing it.

is your weight shifting forward when coming up?
do you feel your back has worked alot after the set? (its what i felt when my form went into GM mode and probably had a similar bar path)

really focus on equal ascent of chest and hips.
