Road to Derby Cup Championships (Lizking’s 1st meet)

Page 4 of 35 First ... 23456 ... Last

  1. Just to add to what Napalm said some, as far as preworkouts, I personally like a stimulant boost in the AM and then right before deadlifts as I feel a little worn out sitting through the benching(lots of bench only people making it the longest lift). Just go by preference. First meet I did Uncut before and enhanced before deads, second one I did a VPX bang in the AM and a shot of brain candy before deads. Just use stuff you like if you feel you need it.

    yeah - kinda sucks.... I ordered the belt, wrist wraps, & gloves (for my wife) from HOP - turned out, they didn't have singlets in stock, so ended up ordering from that from Inzer - I got the singlet in 4 days.... It's officially 2weeks from order date, so can't really b!tch too much yet. I'm just anxious to get my gear!

  5. Sidenote: Proud of the wife- She was benching this weekend - she asked for a spot on her personal best of 90lbsx1 - gave her a couple setup tips & nailed 100lbs x1 - a 10lbs PR!

  6. Pardon my logbook truancy – because my basement is so far from my computer….

    Squats were tough this week. Went out over the weekend, had a few drinks with friends & slept very poorly all weekend – come Sunday when it was time to squat, it showed.

    I’ve been logging my calories (albeit rather loosely) aiming @3000 – given my knack for going over, I’m bumping that down a little. I keep tipping the scale over into the 200’s & I really wanna stay in 198 for this meet. I’m been upping my conditioning a little recently, & come February 1st I’m cutting alcohol & crap food. I’ve got the X-Gels going PWO supported by ALCAR & GMS (Glycergrow 2 scoops/Hemavol 1 scoop) & just started Anabeta Elite. Given all that, I’m not really concerned, just a consideration to keep an eye out & not let my cals get too out of hand.

    Despite OHP just last night, having dinner with the wife’s family tonight, so I had to get my deadlifts in this morning. Not too bad, felt like I could’ve had a 6th, but had a bit of doubt if my form would hold up, so I left it.

    Thanks man! yeah ABE and original Anabeta are both good stuff. They always give me a bit more appetite that in turn gives me a of a strength boost & all day pump feeling. I'll be throwing Erase in the mix after this meet, to help me cut up as I get ready for vacation - the wife got a groupon deal for 5 nights in St Lucia

  9. That's awesome

    Hey not too far away - I live in Lousville now, but grew up in Indy & would go to Michigan for family trips sometimes. Yeah - I can't recommend enough getting out & seeing as much as you can of the world. Going on vacations are awesome obviously, but, like for instance I was lucky enough to get sent to Louisville's sister city in Russia (Perm) - seeing a place I barely knew existed on the other side of the globe - that has definitely stuck with me.

  11. Russia, Japan, Germany and scottland are the four places I'd like to visit before I die but don't see that happening but u never know I never thought I would weight 200 lbs again or DL 400+ so I guess anything is possible in life just got to want it bad enough

  13. http://articles.elitefts.com/training-articles/powerlifting-articles/falling-forward-in-the-squat/

    Bam! Now let's see if I can get my sh!tty squat together... I'm good morninging(?) the sh!t out of my heavy sets lately. Definitely need to remind myself elbows down - I try to grip a bit on the narrow side, as I feel I get my back tighter. The caveat to that I'm picking up on my elbows, triggering some of my forward motion.

    something else I was pondering was to add back in calf raises just to get more acquainted with weight on my back, as I've always been able to raise at least what I squat. While I doing them previously, I would do all my squats, then once I topped off go into calf raises with the over weight.

    I should be able to get videos soon - my new phone blows, but I did get a cheap gopro knock-off the other day ($35), just waiting on the memory card to show up from amazon

  14. On the back squat, you can have a narrow grip to really pack those shoulders in, you just have to really focus on externally rotating your elbows under. I also flex my forearms so my wrists aren't hyper-flexed.

    I found that Goodmorning-ing squats was just weak quads and being lazy. My squat has gone up a lot since I've stopped.

    The X-Gels may help you recomp depending on your cals too.

    OK cool - yeah I definitely see the issue of elbows coming out. While I'm sure my quads could be stronger, I think you hit nail on the head with lazy... It seems like the more I work on it & the lbs go up, the more technical the squat becomes in my mind (& hence any weak links in that chain stand out)

    A recomp wouldn't be too bad Heck, I'm debating going on a straight up cut after the meet for the couple weeks before vacation - got a few goodies in the stash I've been holding on to...

    Had a strong bench session last week, followed by some pretty crappy squats. First time squatting in my new chucks, bad day on the homefront, and a busy schedule led to my first ever testing of the safety features on my cage… My 4th rep on my heavy set (285), mentally a little shaky down in the bottom & it instantly transferred into the bar. My ass shot up way fast, I got my elbows way out. It went into a good morning & then quickly not…(forward I went into the uprights on the cage). I thought I might’ve even rolled my ankle over in the process, but it was just sore for a day & cleared up. Too funny to me that I’d been reading that elitefts squat link & totally [email protected] the lift up in the same week… I guess to look on the bright side, I learned a few things that day really fast... I think I’m going to move front squats over to DL day & just do more squats on squat day (grease the groove)

    Time to redeem myself & sweat it out on Overhead Press – today starts a new week…

  17. Full update with numbers later - sitting at my desk now & my logbook is not...

    Deadlift PR - 390x3 - felt like I probably left one in the tank even... Foot still feels kinda funky when trying to move quick (between big toe & ankle), but no discomfort at all lifting. Still waiting on my belt & wrist wraps....

    So after the wife hit her PR of 100x1 on bench, she tells me a week later she hit 95x5 - she might be catching the iron bug...

    Thanks! I'm just trying to stay on course & learn along the way - AM's been a great resource to learn from those moving way more iron than I...

    That whole squat debacle last week kinda bruised my precious ego....enough to have me looking forward to squatting Thursday. I caught something in one of these logs about dropping down too quick leading to getting loose - that rang some alarm bells in my head. Not to mention that since my foots been feeling a bit off, I made sure to keep everything way under control during deadlifts this week & walked away with a +2 rep PR & moved up on front squats...hmmm. The last place for my ego is under the bar...

  21. Numbers update (finally got my log book in front of me). OHP – out of necessity (low ceiling) I’ve always done these seated, but no backrest. I think I’m going to find a way to do these standing – outside, in my garage, something…. I definitely see the benefit in it. Incorporated more rows & cable pulls into this week. Rowing between bench sets was a nice change (was reading about that in Swanson’s log) – my sets felt better overall. I also felt like I sorta redeemed myself after last week’s craptacular squatting. I can’t remember who’s log it was in, but I’ve been trying out those facing the wall BW squats – those are going to hang around a while, as I felt more in tune today with my squat form than I had been in a little while. Getting adjusted to wearing shoes to lift, the chucks aren’t too bad – question though, do you lace the all the way up? Probably just since I haven’t had shoes on for lifting in a while, I’ve been more comfortable leaving the top 1 or 2 holes unlaced – I’m sure I’m just overthinking it

    Short version – tripled each day on this 1’s week. Wanted more out of it, but looking at the last couple cycles, I hit 1 for 1’s on last cycle & 2 the one before - progress is progress, so I’ll take it.

    X-Gels/ABE/ACLAR - has been a nice stack so far - seems like I'm losing bodyfat, but the scale is stuck on 200. I'll probably give the GMS another week/10days & drop it out before meet time.

    Got my memory card for the camera – my next step is working on getting video up

  22. So yeah... Any day they feel like shipping my belt/wraps - would be nice to have ... jeez ... I paid for gear, not to stare at the eternal "processing" status of my order. I guess the "forever" in the Inzer forever belt is shipping time?

    Sorry - had to vent

  23. Took over a month to get my belt but it was custom so that's to be expected

    Didn't get anything custom... Had they not told me 1-2 week b/o when ordered, then told me it would be any day when I emailed last week, I probably wouldn't be too bothered. I was hoping to be able to train with it before this meet, but it looks like I probably won't be able to really use it until after. Oh well...
    http://anabolicminds.com/forum/powerlifting-strongman/240580-road-derby-cup.html

  25. Thats why I hate ordering stuff off the net I'm more of an instant gratification(pay more to get it at the store) person + the the buyers remorse doesn't last as long when u don't have to wait to get it lol
