    I know their close, but the way I do it is I use each one in a ramp up to the next. If you look at my other events on my Bodyspace comp. history page you will see I did 9 events in a 1.5 year period. I've done it before but not with a truck pull. It's going to be sweet. I have three other events to add to that schedule. Also I'm editing the workout above. Come back and look at the PR's. This stack is unbelievable.

    Yes no doubt. I love lifting and I even can incline 385 and hit 405 but haven't hit it since a month ago. I'll deload on bench/squat/dead after next week, so I'll try to hit it and film it on the incline since it will be my last week with this stack.

    No doubt. I have cracked my genetic code. The secret to hitting those numbers is to not be afraid of the weight and do it. If you can wide grip 400 then you should be able close grip at least 20lbs less. I learned by changing the grip each workout to maintain strength throughout the lift. Also, by flat on Monday, and CG on Friday it hits different parts of your chest and arms. I had nothing against not natural gains as well but this is why test boosters and such help me. I don't know the difference between how steroids helps versus test boosters. The little they give me is big gains in my numbers. Also, this is why I consistently can hit 405. It's my opener in comps. I never lose it because I'm natural. Add 5-10 lbs then it gets hairy.

  8. Wicked PR's! Very nice.

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.

  19. 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?

  20. Kill it man, working hard HP!

    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.

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