  1. good talk in heah!


  2. I was asking about the Spud because he said he had just picked one up. They look like a comfortable belt and I can pick one up fairly cheap. No decision yet though.

    Ahh ok just curious. Elitefts also has their own brand of belts now which aren't a bad price either.

  4. I actually just picked up an Elite benching belt that was on sale. These are for my son who has decided that he wants to try powerlifting.

    From hockey to powerlifting? Great move! Let me know if I can be of assistance in any way. I do still recommend the forever belt by inzer. I bought mine 5 years ago at 200 lbs body weight. It still fits at 250+ and it feels like its just now becoming broken in. These things really do last forever.

    I'm with Snags, I don't use heavy enough weights to have to wear a belt either, I'm all about the high volume, high intensity, high reps sh!t myself!

    I love it, I got it for the comfort and ease of use. I really don't have a waist so the extremely hard belts are just not for me. If some how I became competitive that would be different. I don't think the dead lift belt is a sanctioned belt due to the velcro even though it will not slip. For something to start with I LOVE IT!

    Well like I said I don't have a waist and don't want to bruise my hips and ribs every time I put one on. However for most who plan to get serious about PLifting then maybe a good latch belt is the way to go. I used to have one. It got soaked in Tropical Storm Allison when my house flooded and then the layers started to come apart.

    Very comfortable and worth the price.

    That is a good spread on that weight, means it is landing in the right spots!

    Normally I don't either. I put one on for my all out set only none of the others get belt action.

    Yeah that is good stuff too, it all works! You know me I am ADHD all over the the place when it comes to things I like variety.

    Good stuff.

    Okay since I am in here, I am still hovering around 210, trying very hard to maintain this weight. Strength seems to be sticking around. I have been averaging about 2500 calories a day. Bumping up and down a bit. I did my workout this evening and it was a good one this is my 3rd week on 5-3-1 so it was the actual 5-3-1 pattern I followed for reps.

    Standing Military Press - 85x5, 110x5, 130x3, 165x5, 185x3, 205x3 & 3/4 Damn I was so close to finishing that fourth rep I could taste it but I was not going to squirm to get it so I re-racked it. Either way this is a PR!

    1 minute rest periods rest of workout.

    Seated Lifestyle MTS Shoulder press neutral grip - 155x10, 155x10, 155x8, 140x6, 110x6

    Chins - 10, 10, 9, 6, 3 that one minute wasn't long enough here!

    DB Laterals 25x10, 25x10, 25x10
    DB Rear Laterals 17.5x12, 17.5x10, 15x8

    EZ Bar Curls 115x6, 115x6, 115x3, 55x15

    I really have to say I am enjoying the stack so far. CreaTrona has not failed to impress me. I feel it is a part of me not losing too much strength. I get some pretty good pumps after the heavy weights are over and I go for a few reps. The IGNITE 2 is enough to wake me up in the morning and get training done or to come in after work and still get to be reasonably early. I have been using 2 scoops of CELL SHOCK post workout on days where it is not during my fast and I can feel myself swell up plus it tastes good!

    Right now I am feeling pretty good about my recovery even though libido is still not up I can feel things getting better and the boys are getting fuller. I will start my Endosurge soon to free up the testosterone I have managed to start creating and see what happens after that.

    My arthritis does feel better after slowing down on the anti-cort stuff. It is a little tingly today but I have a deload week next week so I am good. Loving the fact my shoulders seem full. My deload week should have me feeling like a million bucks. Just doing bench on Thursday then upper body gets a nice rest.

    Those numbers on military and EZ bar curl are sick brotato! Nice work!

  14. It's been a long time since I've used the ez bar but I can't even think about putting that kind of weight above my heard even seated. I used to really be able to rock seated military but standing is way more difficult.

  15. Killing it. Awesome update kleen.

  16. Standing BB military is an exercise that truly displays raw strength...which by the way you have in spades Kleen! Very nice numbers.

    Heck yeah!!! Kleen's the man!!!!

    I wish I had a tall enough ceiling in my home gym to do those -

  19. 205 standing is impressive. I got up to that but at a much higher weight. 40 lbs. heavier than you. When I lost that weight my numbers dropped.

    A note on spud belt. I believe it is legal as long as it is the single ply on IPF. I use mine for DL and anything else like GM, SLDL, row, etc. super comfy and easily adjusted. Just get the right size.

    Thanks I am working hard to try to keep strength on the up trend being that my test is lower right now. From what I can tell when I put the new numbers in the max calculator my strength is sticking around the same as when I was still on...

    Yeah I like the EZ Bar I feel I can hit brachialis and the biceps with it pretty good and after the chins I am already toasty in the supinated position.

    Thanks! I am trying to kill it up in here... Like we talked about in IM this is really my first time training for strength.

    Okay update time. I got home last night and the wife had reheated some pot roast we had the other day it was very low fat. On top of the before she ever got to it I had already went in once it was cold and skimmed the fat from the top of the bowl. So it was pretty darn lean. I had about a pound of it last night with 1 cup mashed potatoes and finished it off with a bit of Dump Cake to get my carbs up higher. I also had 2 scoops of CELL SHOCK post workout with my aminos.

    I am pretty excited about the new Aminos we have coming out BCAA + SAA it is going to be sweet to have that around.

    Okay not for this mornings lift. Today was dead lifts. I went in like a week ago after my first workout and recalculated my estimated max because it was just too high. I could tell by how hard the first week was. So now I went to print out this weeks workouts and printed the first one with the higher weights so some of my lower sets should have been lower weights, I will list what they should have been off to the side if they were incorrect.

    Dead Lifts
    210x5 should have been 195
    260x5 should have been 245
    315x3 should have been 295
    395x5 should have been 370
    445x3 should have been 420
    470x3
    This is also a PR!!! This was the correct weight I was supposed to use remembered what it was from looking yesterday the old sheet had me doing 500 I don't think I would have got too many there.. I think I could have probably pulled a 4rth if I had not been lifting about 20 lbs over on each of the build up sets.

    Romanian Dead Lifts to 1 inch from floor - 275x10 x5 sets

    Hanging Leg Raises feet up to bar - 2 sets of 10, 1 of 7
    Planks - 60 seconds x2

    Today I broke my fast early at 10AM 1.5 cups Oats, 3 scoops Trutein Vanilla 2 tbls spoon of heavy cream...

    Oh okay, I got the 3 ply one, it is still comfortable and feels sturdy enough to squat in which is why I chose to do a triple ply at this point. Just using it as added insurance, I have not used a belt in so long I feel my core is more than up to the task however my desire not to see injury again requires that I have some support. I don't think that I will be competing any time soon. I may be wrong but I don't think my numbers would be competitive at this juncture. Now who knows how I will feel after a few cycles of 531 but for now it is very fun to push / pull some numbers!

  22. I think your numbers are fine. Probably be a 500 DL at least in comp. that's damn good.

  23. I have the three ply as well. Love it.


    By the way it's on sale on elitefts right now.

    Sounds good maybe we will see what happens down the road if my bench and squat keep climbing.

  25. Yah if I was still going for big numbers on deads and doing 3's I'd be using a belf for sure. Doing 8's my grip wears out before my back does
