Hey JP, what happened to the situation reports?

(not even going to bother asking about Spug... :roll:)

That's a nasty way to talk about someone. I happened to read an interview with Jeff Lewis from a back issue of PL USA today, he seems like a nice guy.

SITUATION REPORT

Image

Week 13:

Lack of logging from Spugs part has invalidated his pulling. Sources close to spug talk of injuries and lifes general hardship but this has been dismissed as mindgames and bullshit by the JP camp in the run up to the VF weeks deadlift challenge.

JP pulls a triple with 222.5, after a single of 235.

Spug rows to victory against a rival warrington club in a 4 man boat.

Situation is no longer neck and neck, because the other neck is missing.

I know it doesn't count 'cos of the egg eating and all but thought I'd let you know I pulled 600lbs today at the Lancaster Uni p/lifting meet. Then followed it with 280kg (617lbs). :D

Damn you.. eggs or no eggs. :x
Now can you just imagine how much you'd lift if you'd try a nice peice of steak... twice a day. :!:
At least that is what people tell me all the time.
Saw you vid, great job.

Quality lifts man :)

I take it the death scream helps with the lift?

What have you pulled in training for that? How are your other lifts going?

Cheers Deavman, I hope one day to have the courage to drop the eggs and dairy once and for all. Will be trying some dietry alterations in the not too distant future.

Spug, everyone knows a good scream is worth at least 5% on all compound lifts (only 2% on isolation execises, so not really worth it). Actually, I've tried to drop the habit but when going to the max it just comes out! (and helps lol!).

Nothing massive in deadlift training, last big & heavy session was Sept 9th (lighter and more brief since then) and looked like this:

Deadlifts

60kg x 8
100kg x 6
140kg x 4
180kg x 4
210kg x 2
220kg x 1
240kg x 1
250kg x 1

Speed Deadlifts (dead stop at bottom & explosive pull)

180kg x 4
180kg x 4
180kg x 4
180kg x 4

Rack Pulls, from 3rd pin just under knee, dead stop at bottom

warm-ups+

180kg x 3 fast pull
220kg x 3 fast pull
260kg x 2 not so fast pull

Main factors in the deadlfit (up 30kg on same comp' last year) I feel were:

Lifting more explosively and not to failure
Greater focus on rest and recovery
Changing footwear and form (after reading article in Cross-fit journal)
Increasing bodyweight (weighed in at 99kg, was 90kg same comp last year)
Increasing squat strength
Strongman training
Self belief

Quite a few things (and probably some I've forgotten) and they all add up.

This year's lifts (+ increase on same comp last year)

Squat = 215kg (+ 22.5kg)
Bench = 130kg (+ 20kg)
Deadlift = 280kg (+ 30kg)

(all unequipped, belt only)

Excellent!

Technique reminds me of Konstantin Konstantinov - sort of looking at the floor but solid nevertheless.
