    Paused parallel squats + paused oly squats = unstoppable holeshot.

    Count me in on this. Happy Cubing from a fellow Cuber.
    wow really great point. Never looked at it in that light. Definitely going to keep up paused oly but will have to work in sole paused parallel with my slightly wider stance!

    did you run as is? How have your results been?

    Thanks brothern. I'm just a guy who wants to be a human forklift. No use in looking big if you can't move some heavy **** IMO

    I tried to run it as it's laid out, but I have been working with a nagging lower back injury that prevents me from deadlifting. One thing of note is that I have hit a 45lb squat PR. Which was unimaginable to me just a few weeks ago.

    That's great! That's how I'm doing it the first time through.. trying to get to 400/500/600 within a year or so at a similar bodyweight.

    As a side note to all, I purchased Versa-1 to extend the run. Wanted to see how this will impact my training over 8 weeks. Hope its worth it. Got some bulk modern bcaa too! May try megadosing them.

    Powerlifting is a marathon and not a sprint, but setting high long term goals is huge. I'm at 500/365/465 right now. The Cube will help. Gain all the knowledge you can. And drink that Modern like it's water!

    Absolutely.. I'm within 100 of all those as of today, and those numbers are close to 50 lbs off of my all time bests of each lift. So lofty, but certainly achievable in a year or two if everything comes together.

    Awesome! No need to exceed 1 cap/day of VERSA-1 (plus you only have 30 caps in a bottle), but some extra BCAAs never hurt.

    I agree with classic; 1 cap daily is all that's needed...and using 2 caps leaves you with half the time to make progress.

    Yesterday's chest workout

    floor press-
    220 x 5 sets x 2 reps

    varied the grips.. These felt pretty good. My floor press BLOWS so I'm thinking increasing it will have good crossover to my bench.

    paused bench-
    165 x 14
    145 x 13

    wanted to hit 15 on each of these.. They flew off the chest but man did I learn my tris are weak.

    wide grip pull-ups-
    bw x 12
    bw x 12
    bw x 10

    band push downs-
    4 sets of 25 reps

    db shrugs-
    100s x 15 reps x 3 sets

    held each rep for a second or two contracted

    klokov press-
    humbling weight x 10 reps x 3 sets


    had an insane pump from all of this.. Disappointed in my tricep weakness... Good news is they will be fun to work on as well as improving my ability for higher reps

    Squat explosive day

    Squats
    210 x 8 sets x 3 reps

    olympic squats
    185 x 5 sets x 5 reps

    these were done atg and paused again

    Leg press
    500 x 5 sets x 15 reps

    kb swings
    3 sets x 15 reps

    hyperextensions
    2 sets x 20 reps

    entire workout took like 40 minutes. I'm loving the cube and being able to go lighter and feeling like more than a new 3 rm or heavy single matters. I forgot one set of reverse bands squats. Kinda upset but that shows you th focus and intensity I brought today. Really happy about my pace. Tomorrow is a bodybuilding weakness day, excited for some pumps!

    calf raises-
    510 x 4 sets x 12 reps

    red band x 4 sets x 8 reps

    185 x 6
    185 x 6
    195 x 6

    cat rows-
    3 sets x 8 reps

    Back a few years ago when I was lifting heavy a lot too I had real strong tris a would always fail close to my chest. Fat gripz have really helped me learn my tricep strength needs a llot of work again. Definitely worth the investment IMO... A few Guys at my gym purchased aafter me and love them.

    Thanks for the feedback man. I've been curious about them for a while now, and I think you've convinced me to pick some up.

    I do the same thing.. like yesterday I wasn't drinking for St Patricks day at all and I saw the new Mass FX black sale reactivated. 25 bucks for 2 bottles.. for something I'd definitely think would be good. That's a few beers, I think yes! And I woke up feeling great because I was sober.

    Thanks... I'm a finance guy at heart. It's easy to find money in the budget. I have a terrible habit of drinking energy drinks. I bought a bunch of Alphamine to have in the morning b/c it'd be cheaper and do my body better lol.

    On a side note, the Defranco pull aparts I did were awesome. My shoulder's feel great today. If I can keep my shoulders feeling healthy, which has been a problem in the past, and continue to regularly bench and overhead press, I foresee scary bench increases. Here we come 405. Here's a video of the 3D Pull Aparts which will become a weekly staple along w/ the Diesel Crew 3 minute shoulder warmup.

    I'm a finance guy as well...not a big fan of it though.

    I'll have to try those 3D pull aparts soon. They look great.

    Big fan of the fat gripz. I think they are the kind of thing any meat head should have. I put them on pretty much all the DB pressing exercises I do and keep them in constant rotation on other things.

    Also like the band pull aparts by Smitty and DeFranco. Something I use a TON and has really helped my shoulders (and those I work with) from pain in the past.

    Welcome to the log bro! Anything else you recommend for shoulder health? If I can keep ohp and benching a couple times a week with the 3d pull aparts and smittys warmup I think I can finally be a beast presser over time!

    Just stay diligent with the work even when things get better. I know that whenever things get better and I stop doing what helped problems creep back up...

    Also look into some articles by Cressey on Shoulder issues. Solid stuff.

    Nice log so far by the way.

    Great log bud, I'm going to look into that shoulder warmup in a bit. I just started going to an ART doc. Making a big difference to get rid of scar tissue, stretch my muscles etc. a lot of my shoulder issues are from my posture actually which we are fixing ! Good luck bro keep it up.

    Lol I do the same thing with my shoulders. Ill have to stay preventative and ahead of the game even when they feel good. I suspect my issues are because I have uneven rotator cuff strength from when I pitched. My throwing shoulder always feels good and the other I suspect is just weaker in the rotator.Thank for the log compliment too! Im a big PES fan and just ordered some Alphamine for the first time. Hopefully it brings out the final ab details for the summer!

    I'm the same way with my knee.

    I should foam roll more often but unless it aches I neglect it. (Which makes it ache, especially after long runs or jumps)

    Not sure where the effect is coming from if it is all in my head, a result of training changes, the supplements, or both... but I feel very alpha the last couple days. Just ready to go in and crush my workouts, feeling that I'm going to dominate the weights. Even if it's just a speed or rep day, and I'm not going super heavy, I have some extreme focus and drive.

    Sounds like Versa-1 to me. My focus, confidence, and drive noticeably improve, and all I want to do is lift. It's a great feeling.

    Woke up looking pretty lean.. I had a HUGE St. Patricks Day meal (my treat instead of heavy drinking) that included a boatload of Italian Food. Yesterday was my companies monthly pizza lunch and I also ate like a ravenous beast. But guess what, I woke up the leanest I have been in a week or two this morning. I think I restarted my metabolism so to speak and couldn't be happier. I just have this feeling that I'm going to crush weight's tonight on my explosive deadlift day.

    Also, for all you following, if you want to see another great log, check out the one marcusz16 just wrapped up. He absolutely killed it and made some incredible progress! My second bottle of Versa-1, Alphamine, and Bulk Modern Bcaa should be here tomorrow

    I'd been stalking his log but hadn't seen his final pics. Wow he did put in work!

    What flavors did you grab for the Alpha and mBCAA?

    Yeah, I followed his log as well. marcusz16 made some very impressive progress.

    What flavors did you grab for the Alpha and mBCAA?
    Raspberry Lemonade Alphamine.. STOKED! Grapple Bulk Modern.

    Bolt/Breezy/Anyone Else, do any of you have experience megadosing BCAA's? I eat intermittent fasting style and was thinking about doing this. I know everyone's feelings on it are mixed and I could be throwing money away, but bulk modern is affordable and I thought about having 2 servings a day (20 g's bcaas) to see how it impact recovery and body comp.

    Not really a big fan of "mega" dosing but I don't know if I'd consider 20g a mega-dose. I use 5g Leucine pre and post so if that was a BCAA product that'd be near 20g.
