I'm basing my programming off of your Hybrid model, been following along with your log for a while now, too. Was curious as to why you prefer hammer curls over barbell curls for an assistance movement. Also, with weighted pull-ups, do you believe 3x5 is and effective rep/set scheme or would you recommend something different. Thanks a lot, enjoying the hell out of the workout.

Hammer curls feel better on my wrists, I get a little more ROM, and it's one of the few instances where I get to use DBs. It's not that big of a deal, as it's assistance work. I don't think I've curled in three weeks.

3x5 is fine for weighted pullups. You can alternate that with 3xmax or 3x15 (plus whatever weight you need to limit it to 15). Remember to factor in your own bodyweight to what you're doing on weighted BW stuff (sounds weird), e.g. 200 lbs. BW + 90 lbs. weight = 290 lbs. weighted pullup. It obviously won't affect linear progression, but it can come into play if you switch to percentage-based routines, especially if your BW fluctuates.

142.5kg x 3
165x3

2) power clean, singles
70, 90, 110, 120, 125 (PR)
130 miss x 4
Oh well.

Hey Gant

Started catching up with the posts on 70s big that i've missed since being away on holiday. I've got to say that your rowing video almost made me piss my pants, it was hilarous!

More like that please

Thanks. I have another idea, but it will have to wait a few weeks until I am done with a trial.

Yesterday
1) PSN
Worked up to 92.5. Failed at 95.

2) PC
Worked up to an easy 120. Failed at 125 multiple times.

3) press
Doubled an easy 90. Failed at 100.

Today
Wrestle with the heavies.

Warmed up with a few complexes.

1) DL
160x3
187.5 x 3
212.5 x 6
468#. My shoes were in the shop, so I went BF. Couldn't feel much difference.

Didn't feel like doing much else. Hell, I didn't NEED to do anything else. So...

2) hammar curlz
Ran the rack starting with 37#x15. Oh yeah.
