    Napalms sponsored iForce Intimidate log


    Well boys, it starts today, keep your arms and hands inside the car at all times!

    Thanks again to Vaughn and everyone at iForce for giving me this opportunity to beta-test their new product.

    I'm laying it all out here, I plan on tracking my diet, training, sleep, daily motivation levels, libido and anything else I can think of for the next month. I'm calling it straight down the middle, no bs. By the end of this, you all will know more about me than you prolly bargained for. I plan on including vids as well as a youtube review at the end.

    A little back story:

    47 yrs old, been training my entire adult life - training correctly though for about the past 4-5 yrs. By correctly I mean concentrating more on form than the weight on the bar. I was bitten by the powerlifting bug about two years ago, and it's literally and figuratively all I think about. This will be a powerlifting log - high reps to me means 6. It will be all barbell all the time - with the exception of a couple assistance exercises. I squat, bench and deadlift: any assistance exercise I do is meant to improve my big 3. Apologies in advance to the guys at iForce - they sent us a training template to use, but I'm 6 weeks out from a APF meet I'm competing in Jan 21. I think it would be silly for me to shake up my training that much so close to a meet. I hope they understand.

    I had major shoulder surgery this past April, and my second in 18 months. Two full thickness RC tears and a torn labrum on the left in April, and a full thickness RC tear on the right May of 2010. I've had 5 shoulder repairs - and I'm pretty sure I have a torn labrum on the right that I'll have fixed sometime after the APF meet. I'm going to see the surgeon next Weds. That said, my left shoulder feels better than it has in years, but I'm struggling a bit with the right at this time. The surgeon turned me loose to start training in Sept, and I started with the Jan meet in mind. I literally started my lifts with the bar only in Sept.

    Currently, my 1 rm's are 310/200/360. Past gym bests are 345/290/380. My goal for the meet in Jan are ~325/215/370 and I think this is realistic. If I get in the neighborhood of 900, I'll be happy. Not bad for an old geezer 7 months post shoulder repair. My bench sucks, and it will continue to, so I have to increase my squat and dead lift to get decent numbers. Squats will be of legal depth - no half squats here.

    iForce also sent us a diet template, and this I will be using. Probably unlike the other loggers, I'm going to try to cut a little. I'm currently at 186, and plan on competing at 181 in Jan. However, If I can get in the neighborhood of 173-174 in the next month, I might try to get down to 165 and compete there. My bf is prolly around 17-18% now, and although I don't care, I could stand to lose a little. So we'll give it a go. Calories will be in the neighborhood of 2500-2600, with macros of 40/35/25.

    That's enough about me...let's get this party started...

    Today was overhead presses and pull ups. I'm have a little problem with the OHP's, but I'm not going F.ck my right shoulder any worse than it is, so I do them anyway. The left feels pretty good doing these.

    OHP's

    Warmup - Bar x 10 x 2 (reps, sets)

    70x6x2
    80x6x2
    90x5x2

    Pullups - I'm not really good at these, I just started doing them a couple months ago

    6 sets of 5 reps - next week I plan on upping the reps to 6

    Hanging leg raises

    5 sets of 12 reps - need to work on my abs to help coming out of the hole in my squat

    That's it - in and out of the gym in 45 minutes

    Enjoy the ride...

    Steve

    Good luck, I think you're the first to start their log so far. Don't forget to include your link in your signature.
    I'm starting mine sometime on Monday.

    Definitely gonna be following along. I'll be interested to see how it helps in the strength department. I've got a bad shoulder to. Has a tendency to dislocate posteriorly at the most inopportune times, so my bench sucks big time as well. All the more reason for you to kill it on the squat and deadlift! I'll be cutting/recomping as well.

    txs guys, i'll be subbing your logs.

    diet today:

    breakfast:

    2 slices wheat bread, 1 can tuna, tbsp of mayo, hard boiled egg = ~410 cals, 26 gms c/32 gms p/18 gms f

    mid morning protein shake w 2 cups 2% milk = 420 cals = 24 gms c/42 gms p/10 gms f

    lunch

    1 cup white rice (can't be helped, wife is filipino), 2 chicken thighs = ~620 cals = 53 gms c/48 gms p/26 gms f

    pwo protein shake = 420 cals, 24 gms c/42 gms p/10 gms f

    dinner

    2 small redskin potatoes, 2 chicken thighs = 610 cals = 52 gms c/44 gms p/26 gms f

    totals, i have no idea how this is gonna turn out:

    whew: 2480 cals, 179 gms c/211 gms p/90 gms f

    macros = 29% c/34 %p/33% f I don't know where the other 4 % is

    this isnt exact, but it's pretty close and is a pain in the ass - gonna get fitday for tomorrow

    macros aren't where I want them to be, gotta work on this immediately

    I'm a fan already! I slept like a freakin rock last night. The weird thing is I had some vivid dreams that I actually remembered-which is very unusual.

    I also remember waking up with wood - not once but twice!

    Everyone pray for mrs napalm

    Posts will be short today until I get home due to me being on my phone

    I picked up a calorie counter app, so I have that taken care of

    Training felt pretty good today. I mixed up the max and hemovol and tossed it down on the way to the gym. I've never taken a pre-wo before and let me tell you, I felt a little jacked!

    Deadlifts:

    Warmup:

    135x5x2
    185x5x2
    225x5x2

    work sets:

    255x3
    285x3
    325x3 here's the vid:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/napalm52.../0/-mKtqpJXdkI

    This set felt pretty good, sorry about the gay straps, I'm nursing a ring finger strain on the right. another couple weeks until no straps.

    I was feeling pretty good so I tossed on 345x1, here's the vid:
    http://www.youtube.com/user/napalm52.../1/OLzyY94Xkag

    After watching the vids, form looked pretty decent

    Pendlay rows:

    150x5x3

    I really felt good about these, really explosive, even more so than usual. Maybe the max and hemovol?

    Barbell shrugs

    185x10
    225x8x2
    275x6x2
    305x4

    I've been home about a half hour now and I'm still feeling a little hyper!

    Mrs Napalm just surprised me by coming home from work - she works afternoons. A little family time then I'll post today's diet.

    All in all a pretty good day!

    Nice deads bro... I think I may have stained a finger recently too... its sore on the inside of the second digit knuckle/joint on my left middle finger, really only hurts to touch though, I can make a fist fine and assume my grip strength is still 100% but might hurt a lil under a load...

    Whats yours feel like?

    I need to get some straps though... Meh... Chalk first..

    deads

    again lol...

    diet today was pretty much the same as yesterday. i don't have a problem eating the same thing everyday. you'll see a lot of chicken and rice in this here log.

    cals were 2590, macros are still a little off at 34/30/36. the culprit is the chicken thighs, i'm picking up some boneless breasts tomorrow.

    i loves my baked chicken skin, but it's screwing up my macros

    That 345 went up waaay to easy. Judging from the velocity you lifted that, you could easy add on another 20+ pounds. Push yourself to failure and beyond and you'll find out just what you're capable of.

    txs bro, keep in mind i had straps on, that figures in there. i do think i had that easily w/o straps though. in another couple weeks when hopefully my ring finger is better, i'll be doing my last work set w/o straps. i'm shooting for 370 at my pl meet in Jan. no plans on going to failure though, saving that for the meet.

    another good nights sleep last night. it almost seems like a different type of sleep - i'm out like a light, but kind of feel like i'm floating. it's really weird. woke up feeling refreshed. this is a scheduled off day from the gym - my daughter bowls in the morning and we bowl this evening. no beer for me, i've swore it off for the entire beta-test. i want the full effect of the product, and a cleaned up diet.

    traps are a little sore this morning from the pendlay's and the shrugs, this = awesome.

    just had a protein shake, and will eat a couple hard boiled eggs as soon as mrs and daughter napalm wake up. the weekends will be the challenge diet wise. i'm quite sure the wife will want to eat out tonight.

    i'll check back in later...

    I relax the diet a little on weekends if I was strict during the week. Sort of a reward I guess. Helps the metabolism not get stagnant too.

    thanks dude, i'll prolly give 360 a run next week. unfortuately, i'm gonna have to use straps for another week or so. then if 350 goes ok w/o straps, i know i'll have 370-375 in me for my meet

    today was a pretty good day, rolled a 575, but bowling isn't as much fun when everyone is drunk but you!

    just took my 3rd dose of the product. i can't wait for another 4-5 days or so when it starts kicking in!

    have a great evening guys!

    yeah, but it's quite a shock to the system running hills in ~25 degree weather!

    man, if i'm running hills 4 days into this, imagine what i'm gonna be doing in a couple weeks

    today was kind of a strange day. i woke up feeling a little off, and it stayed with me all day. i went to bed yesterday feeling pretty jacked about going for 315 today and thought it was going to be a foregone conclusion. it didn't turn out that way. missed it about 2 inches high.

    here's the vid:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qKn-z...WMv3CvxLyRWInG


    this was my second attempt at it today, the first one of my spotters assisted the bar up and i was a little pissed. i told them to let me grind it out. either way, after looking at the vid of the first attempt, it was a little high too. i really had to grind the second attempt out, and i was seeing stars for a minute or so after the attempt. it turned out to be an ugly good-morningish attempt that i'm not at all happy with.

    i'm shooting for 325 at my meet next month, and based on my performance today, i might have to rethink it. i'm going to go back to my training template which is calling for 80-95% over the next 3 weeks. what i think i'm gonna do is try 315 again my next scheduled de-load week and re-assess. if i can hit depth with 315, then i'll give 325 a run at the meet.

    this is what i did today:

    warmup:

    bar x 12

    135x5

    185x5

    225x3

    260x1

    315x1 - miss

    315x1 - miss

    good mornings

    150x5x3

    hanging leg lifts

    12x5

    i was feeling a little pissed so that was it for today

    hopefully tomorrow will be better...

    EDIT: for those wrestling fans out there, you can see rhino walking out of frame at the end. he was helping to spot me and trains at my gym...really nice guy...
