Okay Jonathan, stop crying now. I have done some silly static holds, though I still haven't beaten you. I'm going to have to sneak some chalk in to my sorry gym for that one. Session went something like this:

1x225 pounds
1x315
1x405
495
1x585
failx635
1x605 or 274.4 kilograms

I think do what you want ;-)
My short term goal is the German Open on october 29, then the NABBA Newcomer, then the NABBA German Open, and then the European Championship on decmber 3rd ;-)
Strength has low priorityx at the moment.
BUT if you do 221 kg, i promise i'll do 230! Deal? 8)
No one said it would be easy.

nice work michael - bloody good work considering you had no chalk!

want to know something scary? my girlfriend, kathryn locked out 165kg (363lb) a little while back. if the range of motion is low, she is really really really strong. on bench lockouts (top 2inches of the movement) she locked out 90kg pretty easily (her max is 40kg for full range bench). gotta address the imbalances there!

keep up the good work guys, hope to see some new numbers soon (especially from you ryan!)

did a bit of rack locking out today, though im getting increasingly annoyed that i can only get 300kg on the bar! lol!

here is the picture of the 300kg lockout, which is equal to my old best, though this time i did it belt free :D

Image

and then i did a few 1 hand lockouts afterwards; this is both hands with 100kg, which is challenging for the left but pretty easy on the right. did 120kg afterwards on the right, though i only held it for a second before it rolled out.

Image

also earlier in the session i locked out 200kg double overhand pretty easily, though 220 rolled out almost straight away! and finally, i closed the CoC#2 with my right with three fingers for the first time :D

good grip session 8)

got a new pb on rack lockout using my friend brian's swanky new power cage. i also used his brand new bar, which is a little thicker than most, and so very knarled and rough! my callouses are very sore today!

305kg - 671lb, for an easy 1,2 count. it was a little tricky getting it off the pins, but once up, the grip wasnt an issue. i think that i could have done 315-320kg. i had done alot of lockout reps before that.
