11-17-14 – Max Effort SS Yoke Bar Squats

Today I worked on max effort SS Yoke Bar squats, and overall they went really well. I had a good pace going all through my sets which helped me stay warm, but I was still able to get rest in between sets. When using the yolk bar, the weight is more forward on your body…



9-2-14 – Max Effort SS Yoke Bar Squats

I enjoy yoke bar squats a lot and for several different reasons. Mainly it is because I feel that it forces me to stay solid throughout the whole lift. With the weight being in front of me the yoke bar pulls me forward so there is no room for error when it comes to keeping…



8-24-14 – Max Effort SS Yoke Bar Box Squat

Lower back is almost at 100%! What makes it even better, MY WAIST IT GETTING SMALLER! I can fasten my belt 2 notches tighter! I have recently been keeping my carb intake to a minimum, 30 g or less, and it has been paying off. I am currently working on getting in the best shape…



8-18-14 – Dynamic Effort Squats

For the next couple of months I am going to do movements that indirectly work my lower back. This, I feel will help strengthen it and allowing me to work on my weak point. All 10 sets of 310lbs * with the SS Yoke Bar moved very fast. I made sure I exaggerated my technique…



6-10-14 – Squatting Confidently

5-28-14 – Max Effort Lower Body, Front Squat

After the meet on May 24th, most of my days in HPF have consisted of just rest and relaxation. Today, I received my new program. Not only was it a new cycle, but it was a new program entirely. At first, I was very skeptical about it. I had always trained on my old program…



5-17-14 Battling with the SS Yoke Bar

The SS Yoke Bar and I have a love/hate relationship. I love what it does for me, but I hate it as I’m using it. The bar is great at getting you strong so I will always use it in my training. Having your hand on the handles, instead of the normal hand position on…



5-5-14 – Max Effort SS Yoke Squats & Ab Blasting

After LTT, Mike was excited to use all the new things he learned and said he wanted to write my program for me. I agreed. So now we’re basically on the same routine. This will be my first time in a conjugate style training program.

First up was max effort lower body, which I completed with…



4-6-14 – Battle with the SS Yoke Bar

Today’s training session went surprisingly well. I came into the session with not a lot of rest and not the best nutrition to fuel me for my training session. I made sure I spent a lot of time warming up. I needed to get my body ready for what was going to come. I took…
