Awesome new t-shirt from Mash Elite Performance!
The shirt is a dark grey, super comfortable material.
To get one or the Max Out Friday shirt, you can go to:
Greg Nuckols broke the all-time drug-tested WR raw with wraps with an 1885 total at 242. That’s a 503.5 wilks, and he’s only been training seriously for 2.5 years. Further proof of the power of the beard.
My buddy Greg!!!! Such a beast !!
This is my good friend, training partner, and fellow strength coach at Mash Elite Performance, Greg Nuckols! He’s got brains and brawn.
This video is from the IPA Powerlifting meet on Saturday. After my MDUSA tryout, me, my coach, and my best friend drove over to cheer him on along with about 15 other lifters from Mash Elite, and about 5 from UNC Chapel Hill :) That was a lonnnnnnnnggggg day haha. But awesome
1pm: Deadlift, Shoulder work, and Conditioning
PR 305lb Deadlift
This was the first time I’ve deadlifted from the floor in months so I’m happy with the PR even if it was a baby PR.
The lift looks fast so I was disapointed when I missed 315 and then 310. May have rushed my setup
PR Number 8 this week: Deadlift off the box
Worked up to 365lbs and failed at 375.
So stoked! I wonder what I can pull from the floor? More than my old PR for sure I hope.
Won’t get to find out until after nationals. Deadlifting isn’t in my program really
Followed the deadlifts with some push presses and some prowler pushes for conditioning.
Video: Clean & Jerk at 80% (67.5kg)
Today was pretty good. Squatted heavy, deadlifted heavy, had no misses for clean & jerk. Feeling great :)
Back Squat (Max 2)
Deficit Deadlift (stood on 2 25# plates)
Clean & Jerk
I’ve realized that my clean and snatch form is off. I’m not getting the bar high up onto my hips anymore so I’m going back down in weight for a little bit to focus on this issue.

Deadlift with Em
Squat (5 sec pause at bottom, 10 sec pause at top) Used the buffalo bar

Felt like improvising my workout today so everything was stuff I don’t usually do or stuff I just felt like doing. I think sometimes you just need days like this where you experiment, try new exercises, and don’t take things too seriously.
I think this should go around to every fitblr.
The reason being is just to bring on a sense of competition among one another.
A little competition is actually healthy and makes us better in the long run.
My lifts are a shitty cause I’m writing on correcting my mobility…
Clean & Jerk: 185lbs
Didn’t get any good videos of me today so enjoy this video of missing a 130# snatch behind me
Realized I hadn’t snatched in a week and a half! For shame. Felt a little shaky today but I’ll try and focus more on them next week.

Awesome start to 2013 :)
Starting off the New Year right with a deadlift PR!
This is 137.5kg or 302.5lbs :D
I got 2 videos today: one of my 160# squat trying out a wide stance and one of my 245 deficit deadlift.
Safety Squat Bar Squat
Deficit Deadlift (1- 1.25 inch deficit)
Now off to the concert! Better load up on caffeine! I’m beat
At the beginning of the year, I made a list of goals that I wanted to achieve by the end of the year. I took a look at my original goals today to see how I am doing and I almost surprised myself.
When I set those goals, I think I knew that they were doable but by no means easy. I am making solid progress on my strength goals and have even crossed a few things off of my list already.
Goal setting is awesome :)
Close grip bench press - 135lbs (25lbs PR)
Trap Bar Deadlift - 325lbs (25lbs PR)
Snatch - 115lbs (5lb PR)
Clean - 155lbs (10lb PR)
Squat - 250lbs (25lb PR)
