    today was going good, I decided to try deadlifting off mats as a rack pull alternative, and they were going good. 695 flew up and felt light, then i go for 720, break it off the mat and tear open my hand. It isn't a huge tear but big enough to really hinder my deadlifts... I decided to move onto something else, but in hindsight i don't think the mat deadlifts are really that useful anyway, since i only have enough mats to elevate the weights 3 1/2 inches.... kind of pointless... also i think my shoes are slightly holding me back... they dont allow me to feel "rooted" into the ground... lol

    • floor press:
      bar
      95x5
      135x5

      "arms"

      stretch

      today wasn't bad, I bought a new $5 mat to put under my upper back for floor press so i decided to try it out. 365 felt fine, but without a spotter, floor press has to be the most dangerous thing I can do in my garage.

      • Do you not have a power rack to do it in so that you can set the safety pins just below where your elbows rest on the floor?

          I have a power rack, but my safety spots don't go that low...

          • gotcha... that could be problematic for a bigger guy for sure then.

              Im planning on getting the spud inc. suspension straps, for added safety during squats and suspended gm's.... I'm hoping they might go low enough that I can use them for floor press as well.

                Not bad, speed felt really good today, form was good on everything. I think this is because I finally got my percentages straight and calculated the bands at the bottom as part of the lift. I got 50/100 bottom top added to the squats, and about 125/175 on the deadlifts.

                    not bad. I was happy with the 560 no wraps squat, especially since i've lost 17lbs in the last 6 weeks. I think the depth might of been a little high, but im still confident it was at least parallel.

                      not bad today. 415 felt pretty good, I decided to stop there and do a drop set without the board, but I forgot to change the saftey spots..... As I usually set the higher while doing board presses, that way I can just roll off the board and onto the spots if I need too. Well the first rep hit the spots and i decided to just keep going...
