Umm yea lol. 2" is thick bar.

Isn't a normal bar 1"? The thicker one at our gym is 1.25 I believe, and I'm good for 25 more pounds on it

28mm is standard of Oly bars. That's just shy of 1-1/8".
I think some powerlifting feds allow 29mm as long as you use the same on all lifts at that meet. I've also seen some 27mm bars for deads. It feels weird; women's bars are 25mm, so even a 27mm is noticeable.

I would bet the bar you have at the gym is an old school deadlift training bar.

No. I'd snap my junk if I did a continental clean. Monkey paw grip, regular clean. No thumb wrap, all in palm.

365 was pretty light so I tried 385 and got that up and stopped there for now. Headed in the right direction.

Got a chance to hit the gym this morning.
Rowed for 1100m on level 10 for a warm up.

Front squats-cause I'm not a fan of them
135x6
155x5
185x5
205x5
225x5
245x5
260x3
275x3
285x3
295x1

Strict OHP
115x2sx10r
115x2sx6r
135x5
135x6

Right shoulder has a dinger in it from heavy spoto press's a few weeks ago... Taking it easy on it with bench and over head work, lighter weight and more reps.

Those corn fed fellers don't need a set or rep scheme, they just grab shit and make it move, work with a quite a few guys like that, makes me mad, takes me two hours to get my lower back loosened up enough to tie my damn boots.

I keep it simple start with 135 x 6 just to move it then 185 x 6 225 x 6 275 x 6 then rep 315 for whatever I can and if I'm feeling strong with 315 I'll go heavy and if not or my body is sore I'll drop back and do 3-4 sets with 225 for 16 then move to incline but stop around 275 on that due to a bad right shoulder.

That's a lot of Sets! How long are you in the gym for? Do you just do a day of chest?

Cool, i'm always curious what others are doing and getting results. It's interesting to me how the human body works and how we all respond to training differently

I think Evan splits that up from how I read it.
315 for reps or he goes up from there if feeling good. Banged up or sore is 225 for multiple sets of 16.
