11 Weeks out from competition. I am now training and no longer working out.
Good week of training overall. I used the knee wraps and belt for squat, pushed myself on bench, and only had to fight 2 old people at the YMCA.

My weight was 212lbs.
Monday I benched 1x5 175lbs 1x5 180 and 2x5 85 rpe 10
Thursday deadlift, still no belt and pinky still fucked up. 2x5 295lbs then 3x5 with wrist wraps to help relieve pinky pain. trying to ease off wrist wraps.
Friday morning, squats, 5x5 235lbs with wraps and belts.

I had 2 hallucinations of nissan11 yelled at me, but thats normal.... right?

Back in February I severly jammed my pinky playing basketball. The pain that day was intense. It has slowly gotten better but I will occasionally re-hurt it by catching it on something. Gripping things, especially the bar during deadlifts irritates it and causes pain. I usually tape it to my ring finger during the day to help keep it protected.

Is there anything I can do to assist it during lifts? I see they make little finger sleeves but I am skeptical.

This is Brent Mikesell. Former WR holder in the squat and the second man to squat 1100lbs. He lost the pinky finger on his left hand in an accident. He still pulled 804 in a meet and probably would have been a high 800s deadlifter if he had that finger intact.


Point is....shut up about the pinky. And start your own log. And stop taking auahuasca before your deadlift sessions.

Train as hard as you can and work around whatever injury you've got.

Guys, I need help. I am nissan11's brother and he is guilt tripping me into competeing in a meet with him later this year.

I currently weigh about 210.
Approx. 1RM's
Bench 260
Squat 305
DL 375

Nissan wants me to use a belt, but it hurts too much when I DL. I use it on squat when I remember.
I think I need a new training program. Im currently doing a basic percentage based program for the 3 lifts with 3 sets of 10, 5x5 and 5x3.

Nissan just yells at me all the time so I would like more CONSTRUCTIVE criticism.
He did buy me a belt and knee wraps which I never use the wraps.
Welcome to the underground. Glad to have you!!

Nissan will take multi ply to a new level by lifting in a double breasted suit.

@nissan11 and @MikeyLikey why are you not running training logs leading up to the meet? It could provide valuable information for someone prepping for their own meet or even for their first meet. We all might learn a thing or two even if it's just how to hold in flatulence during the squat.

I will post a pic of what I am doing. Mikey is doing something similar. He missed a week of heavy training this week due to possible relapse of hernia. He had hernia surgery years ago and was having some issues with that spot. He got an ultrasound Wednesday and is awaiting results. Until then he is doing light work and press only.

Me on the other hand, I polished off my Thursday with 4x5 @405 on deadlift. I'm aiming for a new DL PR at the meet of over 520#.
