    According to the Wendler formula, I'm good for 466 and change for a single. According to my own personal experience, 437.5's my true limit (I can typically rep 80% for 10). So yeah, I think it's safe to say my 1RM's in the 4's. Finally. Think it was a mental barrier I broke through when I hit 400 at the meet, plus the weight gain (a big fat 161.5 now).

    Just trying my damnedest to stay ahead of you, brother.

      Haha, you've got that covered. Your drive to keep improving is top-notch. I'll always have m'power cleans, though.
      In matters of style, swim with the current. In matters of principle, stand like a rock.

        Yeah, you've got me on the power cleans, no doubt.

        • Rich, have you had any use for heavy walk-outs using weight well above your 1RM?

            Haven't tried them, Wayland. Have you had success with them helping to improve your squats?

            • My workout today is going to be 4 games of sand volleyball. Outdoor November volleyball is one of the advantages of living in the south. I use these rec sports days as an active rest and test day. How is my vertical jump responding to squats? How is my sprinting and endurance in soccer and flag football? Presumably a good cardio workout as well since I hate to run.

              • I've noticed that when I do a heavy walk out before my work sets that the work set feels much more conquerable. Plus, it's cool that the body will adapt to even a simple thing like a heavy walk out to the point that 400 on the bar feels relatively comfortable now.

                  400 feels like a billion tons to me. Maybe if I walked out 500 a few times it wouldn't. But I think I have the mental part of "just because it feels heavy doesn't mean it's not gonna come back up" worked out. I think.

                    • Yeah, it's a lot of weight to hold on your back. The question is what is it doing for him that squatting heavier and heavier weight can't? I'm not sure one way or another. If anything, I think it's psychological, that it makes a "heavy" weight that one can squat feel "light"

                      • Aquajogging (deep water with belt) with sprints. First time for about a year. Pretty exhausting...but I would also say it is some kind of resistance training. If not, I do not care, it was fun

                          -3x5 reps of dumbbell snatch (20 lbs)
                          -WOD: 9-7-5 reps of squat snatch (25 lbs), with 18 ring rows and 9 burpees between each set

                              Not sure what you're asking about the barbell. I used two steel 5 lb plates on the 15 lb bar. We could have used dumbbells and alternated sides, but we'd just done that for the strength portion and my left shoulder was hurting a little (20 lbs on that side was a little too much, but it felt better by the end). I could definitely do more weight on a bar, but not for that many reps and my overhead squat is kinda wobbly.

                              Yeah if I'd done a proper Amanda, it would have been 9 muscle-ups. They had a bunch of modifications but they were all 2:1 variations (hence 18 ring rows and 9 burpees), aside from 9 strict pull-ups. I had to step back a few times during the ring rows and definitely slowed down the burpees at the end.
