    I hear that. I'm just hoping he realizes that. His mom has this idea that I'm going to give him a program for him to do and she's going to bring him back for check ups every few weeks. I'm trying to explain to her that I can't really build and work on a whole program in 1/2 hour (I gave him 45 minutes last night since it was his first appointment). What I'm hoping will happen is that he'll take what I'm teaching him and make good gains and want to come back. The fact of the matter is that last night I was outsprinting him, and I need to get him getting out in front of me if he wants to stand a chance. He also wants to gain a good bit of weight, which I can understand, but I think it will be largely effected by hormone levels at this point, as he's all of 120 lbs. Still I'm going to work with him on diet, and get him past the "I'm gonna get fat" fear.

    I've got back and bis tonight, and I look forward to killin it.

    Didn't hit any T-bars tonight, but I did the following:

    Bent over rows 135x12 155x10 175x8 195x6 135x10
    Iso Lat Pulldown (I used to love this machine but I really didn't feel it as much today, just felt like it was torquing my bad shoulder)
    Cable Lat Pulldown
    Seated Cable Rows (hit a new PR- did the full stack for 5 reps! A little bit of a "full body" row, but I really felt that I was properly isolating and stretching my back)
    ****insons
    Straight bar curls
    Iso plate curls
    DB Hammer curls
    #45 plate hammer curls

    Safe to say my back and arms are toasted. Probably going to do some deadlifts tomorrow- hitting the gym bright and early- probably around 6ish. I know it's terrible for recovery, but I'm pulling an all nighter tonight because I have a test in the morning and I need to study all night- it's the only way I seem to be able to do well because I'm basically teaching myself a large portion of the material.

    Made it in this morning before class and hit my deads. I didn't do the downsets, but I did the singles progression my buddy showed me. For running on no sleep, I hit 525. Still under my max, but at that hour of the day I was happy with it. Not 100% sure I locked it out though. Regardless, it felt good to move some weight. After that I did 3x10x225 for straight leg deadlifts and then 8x225 and called it a workout. Have bootcamp again tomorrow and I need to be ready. Everything hurts though so I don't think I'm slacking in any of my workouts haha.

    I can only hope. I'm going to for sure attempt at least to go past my max by a little bit next week and hit like 565 or something. Bust out the nose tork and I'll be good to go. I don't know how my schedule is going to work out though because I have two days of conferences and then I'm going to spend next Saturday at the Europa bodybuilding show in Orlando. I'll have to find a gym to work out at while I'm up there or I'm going to go

    I'm hoping that I'll maybe even bump into some pros b/c of the show, but I'm guessing that it's unlikely because I know most guys don't work out for the last couple days beforehand. Still, there is that off chance.

    I know for sure I'll meet a lot of them on Saturday... I'm going to spend a lot of the show hanging out with our rep for Europa, and I know he always meets EVERYONE... There is a funny pic on fb from last year of this girl that I used to work with standing with Stan Efferding and another guy I can't remember... It's only funny because it brings their height into perspective.

    Killed it on chest/tris tonight.

    BB Bench 135x8 185x5 225x5 255x3 275x1 295x1 245x5 225x8 185x10 135x15x2 (5 full 5 pulse 5 full)
    DB incline 50x12 60x10 70x8 80x5
    Cable flyes 35x12 35x12 42.5x8 42.5x8 25x12
    Rope Tricep pushdown 30x15 50x12 65x8 65x8 50x10 30x12
    York Tricep Dip 255x15x4
    DB low incline 50x12 60x10 70x8x2

    Then I was bs'ing and decided to work in with my buddy on flat DB press- hit the 100's for 5, not bad for being burnt out with chest. Also had powerful forearm pumps at one point to the point that I had to stop my workout for a while so that I could move/ grip stuff.

    DESTROYED my legs tonight.

    Squats 135x8 225x5 315x5 365x1 385x1 405x2 425x1 (NEW PR!) 225x15 225x10
    Standing calf raise machine 300x25 405x15 405x12 495x10
    Lying Hamstring curl 150x12 150x12 160x10 170x5 100x12 (the dropset burned like hell)
    Leg Extensions 130x15 145x15 160x15 175x15 190x15 190x15

    I had that same guy that gave me the singles progression for deadlifts help me with my squats a bit. It would seem I need to back off the weight and work on my depth again. I definitely go deep enough from a bb standpoint, but in terms of powerlifting I'm having trouble getting into the hole due to my height.

    On the plus side, I was cleaning out my dresser and I found some new shoes to wear for legs- I used to be a competitive paintball player and I had some indoor soccer shoes that I bought to wear on turf but never really used because they didn't grip the way I wanted them to (that stuff gets slippery with all the paint on it). They're practically brand new and the have a really nice flat sole and fit my feet nice and tight, which is awesome because I can't really wear chuck taylors. I'd been wearing my zigs lately and the thick soles were messing me up, but I definitely felt an improved level of control tonight.

    Those widowmaker squats at the end were nice and deep and they really killed me. I might make my entire squat workout next week be like a 3x5 or 5x5 at 315 and then do a couple sets of widowmakers to really work on my depth. That 425 felt really good, even if it was a tad on the shallow side.

    Definitely noticing a difference with the ancient strength at this point. Recovery is better and my workouts are more intense. I might add in a post workout dose starting tomorrow and see if it makes an even bigger improvement. I will say this much- with the results I've gotten thus far, I'll definitely be recommending this creatine to all my friends and clients, and will buy more bottles for myself. I think that it would be especially appealing to the ladies, as from what I've seen I really haven't had any water retention.

    One other thing of note- I switched from whey to beef protein post workout for the last week or so. I know it's a little less bioavailable, but the amino acid blend it provides seems more ideal for building solid muscle. I'm using Dymatize Primal because it's more affordable than some other products on the market and provides 27g of protein per scoop. To boost absorption I'm taking it with a scoop of ON glyco-maize. I would definitely use a beef protein by **** if they made one *wink wink nudge nudge*

    On the plus side, I was cleaning out my dresser and I found some new shoes to wear for legs- I used to be a competitive paintball player and I had some indoor soccer shoes that I bought to wear on turf but never really used because they didn't grip the way I wanted them to (that stuff gets slippery with all the paint on it). They're practically brand new and the have a really nice flat sole and fit my feet nice and tight, which is awesome because I can't really wear chuck taylors. I'd been wearing my zigs lately and the thick soles were messing me up, but I definitely felt an improved level of control tonight.

    Those widowmaker squats at the end were nice and deep and they really killed me. I might make my entire squat workout next week be like a 3x5 or 5x5 at 315 and then do a couple sets of widowmakers to really work on my depth. That 425 felt really good, even if it was a tad on the shallow side.

    Definitely noticing a difference with the ancient strength at this point. Recovery is better and my workouts are more intense. I might add in a post workout dose starting tomorrow and see if it makes an even bigger improvement. I will say this much- with the results I've gotten thus far, I'll definitely be recommending this creatine to all my friends and clients, and will buy more bottles for myself. I think that it would be especially appealing to the ladies, as from what I've seen I really haven't had any water retention.

    One other thing of note- I switched from whey to beef protein post workout for the last week or so. I know it's a little less bioavailable, but the amino acid blend it provides seems more ideal for building solid muscle. I'm using Dymatize Primal because it's more affordable than some other products on the market and provides 27g of protein per scoop. To boost absorption I'm taking it with a scoop of ON glyco-maize. I would definitely use a beef protein by **** if they made one *wink wink nudge nudge*
    Nice update man! Solid lift too! My roommate uses the same beef protein because he has a gluten intolerance....he said it tastes like $hit lol

    I haven't had it by itself yet, but with the glyco-maize it's not bad. I actually kind of like it- I use the blue rasberry.

    I've never used beef protein myself, but it does sound nasty I must say.

    I didn't like the sound of it at first, but I tried one of musclemeds' carnivore shots and I liked it, and I've gotta say the taste of the Primal is pretty good. It's somewhat similar to like the blue rasberry Dark Matter by MHP without the waxymaize cottonmouth.

    My shoulders are FRIED from tonight's workout:

    DB Shoulder press
    Arnold Press
    DB lateral raises
    DB rear delt raises
    DB supinating front raises
    DB shrugs

    For the shrugs, I did something at the suggestion of my buddy- quick reps and dropsets. Basically, I started at the 100's. Hit them as many times as I could, then went to the 75's, did them to failure, then the 50's, then the 40's, then the 30's. My traps are BURNT out. I've never done such a fast dropset before, but it was epic.

    Man I remember how bad that burn was the last time I did drop sets on shrugs. It was hard to hold my arm up after it and it burned a good while and I had big DOMS the next day...good stuff to throw in there every once in a while though

    Okay, this weekend is gonna be killer. I'm destroying my food, and I'm about to hit some Ancient Strength and go to the gym. I'm at a fitness business conference and I just missed winning a TRX by 5 rows on the 40/40 challenge. I want to buy one now.

    Anyway, gonna do back and bis tonight, then they're doing some workout thing at 7am tomorrow, and I'll go to the gym again late tomorrow night. This is going to be a tough weekend. I'm confident that Ancient Strength can keep up though.

    Well, just got back from a trip to the gym. Lovin the 24 hour Gold's here. Originally the plan was to do some serious lifting tonight, but at the Europa show today I found out that there will be an amateur strongman competition tomorrow. It's basically 4 events: Atlas Stones (passing over a bar, not stacking on boxes, as many times as possible in prescribed time), Farmer's Walk/ Drum Carry, Truck pull, and tire flips/ drags. It's $25 per event or $65 for all 4, and the best times win a pot of the entry. I'll be a heavyweight by their standards, so I'd be flipping a 550 lb tire and the atlas stone will be in the 160-180 range. I'm really excited because I have all my equipment up here with me- belt, chalk, climbing shoes, etc. I'm going to test my footwear on the expo floor tomorrow to determine whether my climbing shoes or indoor soccer shoes will work better for certain events- I already know that the zigs slip like no other on the smooth concrete.

    Since I'm going to compete, I didn't really do a full workout tonight. I hit my ancient strength before I went anyway along with a mix of carbs and aminos, then did a mile on the elliptical and a bunch of stretching. Did some light ab work just to maintain the tightness, and a few steep incline DB presses with 55's to make sure my shoulders would be alright for the Atlas Stone. I've never done anything like that before, so before I pass out I'm going to watch some videos on technique. I know for sure I'll be able to clean up on the tire flips- the 550 feels really light compared to the one we have at my gym. To top it all off, I even have my bottle of Tork in my gym bag.

    Hopefully I'll do well enough in at least one event to get SOME of my money back, but at the very least I'll get a t-shirt out of it. Gonna use some of the supplement samples I'll get throughout the competition to make sure I'm on top of my game- lots of BCAA's, electrolytes, carbs, etc. Hopefully my hips will be loose enough- they've been kind of funky ever since squats on tuesday, and have seen plenty of abuse since then. Between the stretching and powerplate squats tonight they feel pretty good right now though.
