    Note*
    I was extremely exhausted when I did this workout. I was drained from being aggravated from my son who wouldn't sleep all night. it's ok. I woke up and had to drive 2.5 hrs at 5am to the VAMC (Veterans Hospital) Hospital for a physical. I hit the gym after I got home and pissed. I should have stayed home but wanted to hit up the gym. Exhaustion played it's part. I will get my numbers, next week.

    Yeah, REST. DON'T LIFT ANYTHING. Relax and eat, repeat. The worst thing you can do is go to the gym a week out. Let everything heal and VISUALIZE, VISUALIZE, AND VISUALIZE SOME MORE YOUR LIFTS. I can't tell you how much I focus on my goal lifts to the point I get angry. Especially, if I know I worked hard to hit the target weight. Anything after that, is a plus.

    I know and as much as I want to say it shouldn't matter, I realized last night how exhausted I still was. This morning I'm ready to attack the gym like it stole something. I took some forumula-x last night with 1L water and woke up focused. I didn't go to the gym last night and thought about what I wanted to do today. Next up, legs and lower chain.

    I would love to have a huge gym for us to train in. I learn from everyone. I just enjoy training in general, sharing ideas and trying new workouts. I always go back to basic bread and butter for compound movements for power.

  9. Day 19 July 18, 2012

    Workout

    INCLINE BENCH: Barx20, Barx15, 135x15, 225x5, 315x5, 395x1 (Strength check)
    LEGS: 10x10. First five was with the bar to warmup. Next two was with 135x10, 225x8, 315x3 (For some reason I was gassed. I don't get what happened but I did not feel good about squats. I left them out since June 23, comp. also, the cardio for the past two days had to have affected my lower back so I plan to hit them again Friday)
    LEG PRESS: 270x20, 350x20, 450x20 (Stopped just wasn't feeling it)
    CALVES MACHINE SEATED:180x20 (4 sets)
    TBAR ROW: 2PLx10, 4PLx10, 6PLx8, 7PLx4 (PR Matched)
    MILITARY PRESS: 135x8, 185x8, 205x8, 225x8 (Smashed this, could have gone higher, major PR. I left this exercise out of my regiment for years. I tried this last week and was so week I couldn't hit 135.)

    Note*
    Today legs were terrible. I forgot me and a buddy had to take six motors from a warehouse this morning and weigh them in a scrapyard. Each one averaged 180. We had totaled them out of the warehouse and into the truck, onot a scale and reload them in the truck and offload back in the warehouse. Nonetheless, I love telling you guys the biz because I always rebound and I want to be straight up, in what happens In the gym. By the way, did I ever tell you I hate them, SQUATS. Just as we hated veggies growing up I still do them. On another note. My upper body strength has increased immensely. Follow me on this. I benched 395 twice on Monday, did 60 reps of Pullups/Chinups (didn't list this day), performed incline press @ 395, plus military press @ 225. I would say I'm still doing extremely well with this stack. I'm going to do Pullups/Chinups tomorrow, Friday I plan to hit deads/squats. It's going to be brutal. Redemption is at hand. Be well, fellas. For entertainment purposes where did that phrase come from, be well?

  10. Kill it man, working hard HP!


    aha not sure where that came from lol

    No doubt. I'm on fire. I'm determined to hit my numbers for Aug. 11th in Durham, NC for the 100% RAW Meet. I will get to see my Uncle I haven;t seen in years. I plan to just drop in at his doorstep. He was the one who first introduced me to supplements. He gave me a bottle of Amino5000 or something 25yrs ago and said take these. I was popping 8 pills and had no idea what they were. I was getting strong for no reasona dn stopped becuase I was scared and had no idea what was happening. He really didn't explain what they were or how they worked. I was lifteing in my basement with a set my Father bought for my brother and I.
    Fast forward to now. He has no idea how big I am. Anyways along with this stack I just received my Slingshot by Mark Bell. I plan to use it to get me over the hump. I read a lot of articles and you must be careful on how you go about it. It says it can give you 10%. So along with spotters and great technique I will reach my goal and more this year.
    Let's get it! Salute!

    Note*
    Did this workout during lunch time. Made quick work of a back and chest. My chest was a bit sore but still pulled this off for a PR on the Hammer chest press. I never did that many reps with 12 plates. There is room for 14. I plan to try this next Thursday. On Monday I plan to do a negative with 440 to see how I handle it. I will break down and do some DB, and cable work. I'm loving the strength I'm gaining, just hoping it lasts.

  13. That will be interesting how the 440 negative goes, best of luck!

    TONIGHTS WORKOUT PLAN


    BENCH PRESS: 135x30, 225x20, 315x12, 365x8, 405x5 (PR), 440x1/2, 455x2 w/ slanger.
    INCLINE BENCH: 225x15, 265x12, 285x12, 305x6
    INCLINE FLYE: 65x15, 75x12, 85x10x3
    DIPS: BWx8x3

    Note*
    This is a workout I plan to hit as a staple for bench day. I received a recommendation from emmo on how to change it up. Appreciate the page homie. The slanger is an accessory for benching, if used correctly can become a very powerful tool in your arsenal. This week I will be back in full swing. No interruptions, no vacations or anything else which can hinder my training. The kicker is at the end of the week wifey is traveling to Pa so I will introduce insanity as cardio. I will hit the gym for two a day workouts. I'm trying to take this to a whole new level. I'm doing a hybrid of powerlifting, bodybuilding and insanity. Crazy huh. I have three weeks to fine tune it because she will take our god daughter home and stay home for few days before returning. It's going to be fun trying to get this rolling for two months and see how I function.

    UPDATE*
    SMASHED PR OF 405 for 5 reps. I always struggled to get 3. Last two reps were difficult but got all 5. I hit the two reps with the never before used slanger @ 455. People don't believe in this accessory. I have to say neither did all the people @ the Y. They watched a I got strapped up in MARK BELLS SLINGSHOT after they seen me with three spotters help with the single 440 negative. I donned it and took the spot. I brought it down slowly and without any assistance BANG out the whole to lockout. It felt so good I did it again and stopped. I was STOKED. this thing is awesome. Yes, I smashed the other numbers in my workout as well. No doubt this stack is the BOMB. So sad I out of the blue pills so I will be closing it out tomorrow as to my thoughts. You can see there is no doubt it does the job.

  17. Nice job HP, nice numbers and wow those incline flys are heavy!

    My day began this morning @ 4am since my son thought it was time to play. I gave him a bottle and he sucked it down and as starring ate me like now what. He was supposed to fall asleep. So i packed him up and we went for a drive towards WV. I stopped at MCD's for a small coffee and gas. I checked in him and boom asleep. So I continued on to reflect on my day. Eventually I turn around and get him in the house and yes, I left his butt in the carrier as I got ready and left for work. Mommy says he woke up within 30 minutes of me leaving screaming. He was hungry, and fell asleep again.
    Well wifey has left for a few days to PA and I get to hit the gym at will. I plan to begin insanity as a hybrid. Let's get it in.
  30. Day 28 July 27, 2012 Friday


    Took the day off. Worked too late in the field so I just rested. I may have to move soon and relocate due to work slowing down. Company is pushing to send people up north. Who knows what the future holds. We will see when they decide to make an offer as to what I will do for me and my family.
