How are you squatting things? You got a rack/stand?
 
I will likely need to move to a new place next summer. If I can afford a place with a garage/shack/shed of sorts I am happily dropping near a grand on a barbell, a rack, some bumpers and flooring suitable for dropping overhead lifts. I am getting a little tired of the cuntbaggery at my university gym, cunts destroying equipment/hassling with non-sensical and inconsistent rules about where I am allowed to lift

i am putting weights on the bar and putting the bar on my shoulders and then squatting :santa:
 
i can't do much more weight without a rack though, it is a bit dangerous :oldryan: but i'm not fussed

In that video I posted, there is mention of early 20th century strongmen performers loading globe-barbells with shot up to 500lb, tipping it over on their backs, and then squatting it. :redneck:
 
This is the cheap option I have in mind for squatting:

If I do go through with this, I might go for a half-rack just for the dildo toward up bar.

Hi Lava, I think I basically have the same squash stands. They will hold beyond 140kg, but I am not sure they will put up with much if you were to drop a weight back down into them. If you can afford better stands I would suggest you go for it, they're a bit shaky and the taller you are the worse it would be.

squash back off set today: 280lb x 8, could've probably cranked out more. I am curious to find out what I can do for 10 rubbings these days.
 
Having trouble snatching due to thumb pain, so straps and lighter weights at the moment.
 
Tried hang cleans today for the first time in ages and got an easy 50kg, 60kg and 70kg for 2x3 each. Huffing and puffing for a good minute or two afterwards though.

Snatch balance + overhead squash: 160: 1+2, 165: 1.
Clean: 195lb x 1. Finally. Missed 205lb on two attempts and called it a day, but I am happy. It seems all that daily direct upper back work is paying off and straightening me out.
 
And my upper back HURTS like a fucker, I have never been so sore up there.
 
Off day tomorrow.

Had to scale back a few days, but my latest session was:
 
squash: 350lb x 1 + 315lb for 3x3. Getting easier again.
push press stuff
deadlift 350lb for an easy 2x2.
pull ups til I couldn't do 4 in a row for about 10-15 minutes. Too tired to count.
skull crusher things for le triceps.
 
Also started doing behind the neck push presses after reading an article from Greg Everett about BTN lifts daily improving posture in the classic lifts. Did 135lb the last time for 10x3. Adding 5lb every time as I get the feel for this lift, though I need to tape up the knurling as my neck was bleeding near the end. :oldryan: Still doing snatch presses from a squash for 3x8, latest weight was 80lb.

Gym will be closed 3 days straight starting wednesday, so I'm racking up a ton of volume accordingly. Today:
 
got it the 355lb x 1 squash. plus 315: 3,3,2.
push dildo away triples on the minute: 160lb 10x3
hang snatch 120lb 5x2 + 1 overhead squash each.
bent over rows 225lb 3x8 though I cut the last set 2 rubbings early as I was cheating too much.
dips + 25lb belt 2x8.
 
Gonna destroy some snatch and clean volume tomorrow.

Full ROM dips if you can get a narrow grip thing to minimize the strain on rotator cuffs, I treat it like an arm exercise but it's the only chest-related thing I do now. My chest ain't as pretty as it could be, but I'd rather snatch 300lb than bench 300lb personally, especially when doing the first one automatically enables you to do the second but not the other way around.
 
I dropped benching almost entirely close to a year ago to focus on shoulder health/strength + upright posture for the snatch and c+j. I only do it now and then for fun, I just rely on overhead stuff and tricep things for pressing strength.

What thing should I use for a thumb joint sprain? Pain has not subsided in a week despite doing my best to not aggravate it, ibuprofen helps mildly but it seems like overkill for a localized thing. I am thinking of ben unusually limber or something along those lines, an ointment maybe?

fresh clean and push jerk max ramp up: 185lb, 190, 195, then made the clean on 200 but got too dizzy to jerk. I was surprised by this as I almost never train the jerk.
hang snatch 125lb 5x2 PR.
back quad tremors 260lb 3x10
 
Trying out high rubbings in the back quad tremors which I haven't done in ages and it is fruital. Arms going numb. Gonna do blocks of 10's, 8's, 6's, etc. as the weight climbs up. 
 
Also doing good mornings every day and my lower back and hips are appreciative.

Doing 3x12 with 75lb in this period. Third time around they were very easy (did in under 3 minutes) so I may increase the load very slowly. I would much prefer using one of these weighted but they don't have one at my gym:

last night i was walking my dog
 
and i came across a weight bench in a neighbor's driveway
 
and there was a sign on that weight bench
 
and that sign said "FREE"
 
free was also underlined several times
 
this was six weeks after i bought a weight bench
 
:shakefist:
 
however i did take the barbell off of the free weight bench, as it is superior to the bar that came with mine
 
that is the end of my physical fitness-related anecdote

it is rusty but proper. it weighs a minimum of ten pounds. the bar that came with the weight bench maybe weighs three :redneck:
 
what this means is that i can put more weight on the bar, as i grow stronger. and fiercer :twisted:
 
without fear of the bar snapping in half and taking my eyes with it

only had time to squash 270lb for 3x10 and do some 90lb snatch presses and some dildo toward ups today. Then I had to observe (handsomely) for 2 miles to check out apartments. :homework:
 
There was a time I could only squash this much for <5 rubbings and be crippled for the following 3-4 days. I am truly impressing myself training in these unfamiliar rep ranges. I am only upset with the fact that I may not hit my target of 405lb x 1 before the end of the year.

Today I snatched it the 160lb on the first go. After missing 165lb 3 or 4 times as a confidence builder. :redneck: 
 
last squash session was 280lb 3 x 8. Switched things around today and did 8 x 3 paused with the same weight as I was not feeling inclined to attempt 3 x10 after the snatches. It sucked but I got all the rubbings.
 
Then I did some behind the neck push presses 8 x 3 155lb and some pull up fuckery.

squash PR at another gym, assuming the barbell I was using was actually 45lb: 300lb x 8, followed by a few sets of 6 and 5. If I can add 2 more rubbings to my first set, that would put my 1RM at 400. :o
 
Back at my regular gym some more volume PR's:
 
Yesterday:
power snatch 150lb 3 x 1
pause squash 270lb 5x5
push dildo away behind the neck: 150lb 5x5
 
Today:
snatches on the minute: 145lb x 10.
cleaned up to 195lb and called it a day
dips PR: 18 rubbings, then a set of 12 with rest pause until I got to 18.

took a 15lb jump to a 5x5 and got me a 
 
squash 315lb: 5,5,5,2,3. Was pretty beat up and sore but it was not so hard. Might go back and fight for that 300x10 before I push the weight on 5x5
push dildo away btn: 155lb 5x5
barbell rows: 230lb 4x6 to the tune of some ND. :xx:
some 2x10 good mornings with 95lb.
 
Ate a fuckton of chicken, rice and ice cream afterwards. My bodyweight is 210 now, gained 5lb over the past month or so and intend to stop at 215 if my lifts do not progress much faster. Drinking lots of dairy much to my disliking but I will fucking squash double bodyweight if it's the last thing I do.

Scored an almost new squash rack for about $220 on craiglist. :xx: Probably won't set it up til I move to my new place this summer though, but I'm still keeping an eye out for deals on a bar and weights too.

Recent sessions:
 
snatches on the minute 150lb x 10
squash 300lb x 9.
front quad tremors up to 250lb 3x4, not a PR but certainly an increase in workload tolerance
btn push dildo away 165lb: 5,5,4,4,3, peaking out.
 
Only have had time to train 3x per week recently, considering a periodized scheme for quad tremors, I'll read up on rippetoe's practical programming to get it right this time.
 
Doing some 50 lactations at home on alternating days at home and it by back is feeling quite nice.

Weights are getting up there lad, pretty decent on them front quad tremors now.
 
My knee is fucked, physio next week and will see where that goes, would like to get out on my bike and squash or deadlift most week. Currently doing pull ups, press ups and lots of grip work so that I don't get too fat or bored.

What is the knee issue? Patellar tendonosis/tendinitis? I was just reading stuff on preventative measures for the condition, there's a rehab exercise described here that supposedly works wonders:
http://www.allthingsgym.com/clarence-kennedy-interview-2015/
 
Recent PR's have been 6x4 paused quad tremors with 285lb, a very near 175lb snatch, 185lb 5x2 cleans, +25lb weighted dips x 10, and recently hit my old OHP max at 155lb again. Looks like all that behind the neck work is finally pushing my upper body strength back up.
 
I also started eyeing deals for equipment to lift at home and scored a good deal of 200kg of bumper plates + some 20 or so kg of smaller change plates. Already have a rack that I got off craigslist and I'm probably getting a good barbell within the next few days. Won't be able to do the olympic lifts at home until I move to my new place and build a platform, but saved a ton of money by snagging these deals as they came by me. :xx:
