Today was SSB squats :)

I think the bar itself is 60# so the wt of it IS included with the totals.
150x5, 170x4, 190x4, 200x4, 210x3, 220x2, 225x2, 230, 240, 250
225x3, 215x3 failed on a 4th, 190x5, 170x10, 150x15

roman chair raises in between set-4 or 5 sets of 8
ghr's bw 4 sets of 12
hlr's toes to bar x18,15
glute activation with some crazy ass 80's leg wt's too!!! HA !! :D

I just kinda rambled today. I really am liking that ssb for my squats. I know its not the same, a completely different dynamic to regular back squats but I like it! I am a convert!!

I have dreams...dreams of adding wt every weak and getting a beefy max on that thing. The 250 i got today was a biter too :D I will share a vid. Depth isn't perfect but I'm still proud.

ALSO since the PAN American Bench champs is in town this weekend, my turbo gym has a LOT of space where the benches and stuff have been moved.

Looks SO much better with out those eye-sore benches. :)

Brute videos just make me so happy. :)

That was a fine-looking squat by the way, the SSB is treating you well. *nod*

here's my POWER SHRUG. They..seem suspect to me. I don't like shrugs to begin with ... because I guess I don't believe in them. I have no evidence of this so there you go.

I think your shrugs look fine based on what I think they are.

fyi, I thought the last line above read pull up panty.

Ah!!!!!!!! Pull up panties I totally own!! No more diapers for me !!!!!!!!!!!!

Thanks for checkin the shrugs too. I just don't see the point of shrugs I guess. Sure traps..but I feel like they are kinda like doing calve raises. Maybe next week when they are heavier it'll be different but I doubt it. I'll just do more ass in them since I still don't do stiff legged anything.

hey brutiful, ssb squat depth is good!

do you do your fronties with the ssb turned around? I love doing 'em that way, way easier on my shoulder.

I've never seen power shrugs done like that before, that's more of a compound movement, with some lower back involved. but I just googled and yes, they do some like that...my are a bit faster, not so much coming forward, but I do have some body english, hmmmm...

:D BBB :)! ! ! Thanks for poppin by !

POWER ! I have yet to figure out the ssb for fronties...In all honesty I feel like if I try to relearn it now I'd loose ground on that quest for 225. I want it SO BAD!

I do really like that bar. I vow to never be without access to one! I will make sure of that! I don't get the lower back issues from squats at all anymore--> its a great fit for me :)

And those power shrugs..I dunno. BUT today the lil bitty stringy upper back muscles of mine are sore in spots I've never felt before, Not supper sore but made me aware of their existence.. SO I guess I was wrong. I think you can do them in a rack pull type setup but I was too lazy to set one up after dl's.
