Russians part II and Too fat for a dip belt

Wednesday was our second week of Russians.  We kept all of the bar weight the same as last week, but added 2 more chains per side (so 6 per side this week):
505 X 5
595 X 3
645 X 3
685 X 3
595 X 5
It wasn't the best or worst night ever.  My form was a bit off and i was doing a hip shifty thing in the bottom that made me suck most of the night, but at least I didn't get smashed on any reps.

Arched Back good mornings with safety squat bar:
125 X 8
165 X 8
215 X 2 sets of 8  Honestly, I don't think I have ever done these before.  Normally I just round back everything and "just get it up".  In other words I sucked at these and they were much harder than anticipated, so I plan to do more until I suck much less at them.

Ab crunch with Spud, Inc. long ab strap on the row machine:
5 sets of 15

Reverse Hyper: 3 sets of 12 With ~ 500 #

Thursday Upper body accessory night.

Speed bench.  I used a twisted purple band behind my back on all sets with varying grips..
135 X 3
155 X 3
185 X 3
195 X 3
225 X 3

Incline DB Press:
65,75,85,95,105 all for 1 set of 8

Dead stop dips using a Spud, Inc. long reverse hyper strap because I am too fat to use our regular dip belt and have room for the plates not to castrate me.  Video on our youtube page.

90 X 8
