    Ya I get asked to help move fairly often. In fact the woman asked me to help move some night stand looking thing for her. Then said she might give me a call to help move other stuff. Never bad to be able to move stuff for money haha.

    Ya now just have to take the time to lug the tv upstairs to my room haha.
    Ya most box tv's werent too unreasonable, I mostly just hear moving horror stories of the Trinitrons, they used a very thick glass (front heavy) compared to anything else out at the time.

    Experiences like that remind me of how great barbells and dumbbells really are lol... The most convenient ways to lift huge amounts of weight. Non lifting people often dont realize saying "I can deadlift 400lbs" does not mean one could pick up a 400lb man, or tv, or anything shaped in a hard to handle way.

    Ya that would suck to deal with. Kind of felt that experience when I moved my old tv. It was only 27" but felt surprisingly heavy especially in front.

    Haha that is true but it sure helps.

    Yesterday did back. Actually didn't do a million exercises haha just 5. Meadow rows, 1 arm t-bar rows, pull ups, stretchers, and reverse seated wide neutral grip lat pull downs.

    Was trying to get done in a certain amount of time so didn't want to do too much. Plus saw a guy I hadn't talked to in probably 3 or more years. Don't really know him but he worked with an old training partner. Him and another guy would always be there when we lifted. Made me think back to when I deadlifted 675 at 235ish. Makes me sad to think I still haven't crossed the 700 deadlift off my list.

    Later today going to do arms. Going to try and make it a shorter workout. Want to be able to start my Carb Nite a little earlier so I can really eat 6 to 8 hours.

    Also saw a woman I used to see all the time at the base fitness center. I would say she classifies as a GILF haha. Not sure how long ago it was I first saw her but I swear she hasn't aged. She still looks great. I think she is from Panama.

    Ya it isn't exactly a fitness center number haha. Wish I would have gotten into powerlifting at like a younger age. With a coach and all. That was just me pulling on the weight.

    Yesterday did arms. Had a guy join me for my workout. Pretty good to train with but meant more rest. Not ideal for arms but wasn't bad. Allowed me to move more weight. Will post more about the workout but close gripped 275 for 6 or more reps.

    Getting ready to go train legs.

  5. Ya, you cant help but to think "what if" when you had that kind of brute strength!

    Solid close grip numbers, I always go heavier/harder when lifting with a partner.

    Exactly. Makes me kind of kick myself for never really putting myself out there. Not saying I was "natural" but that was with no coaching. I am sure technique could have maximized my power. I know my power is underutilized during my squat.

    Well my close grip isn't all that close. A little closer than shoulder width. Don't mess with super close anymore because of my wrist. It was only going to be 275 for 3 explosive reps but just kept going. Plus didn't feel like doing another set. Other guy was going beyond failure and I was pulling the bar off him haha.

    I guess I should talk about my Monday leg workout. It was a long and brutal workout. Hard to believe I am not more sore. Did do some icing though.

    Lying leg curls 4*8 last set involving 25 partials

    Squats sets of 5 up to 390
    Leg press 360*10, 450*11, 540*12, 630*13

    Deadlift sets of 3 up to 555. Last rep was suspect. I fear it was due to lack of grip. Blaming it on the liquid grip crap. Need to get some real chalk. Hands got tore up.

    Hip thrusters 3/4*8 with 225 with basically no padding.

    Single leg Romanian stiff leg deadlift with trap bar 2/3*10 this tore my lower back up. Really felt a back pump.

    I was covered in sweat. Probably half out of it. Pretty much on auto pilot going through the workout. Don't know why I did so much haha. No major soreness that I can tell. Getting a massage and adjustment today.

  7. Great detail, the thorough daily updates are greatly appreciated.

    Im pretty much the same way, if the close grip is over 225 I take a bit wider of a grip. I learned quickly cgbp wreaks havoc on the wrists.

    Not a problem, just wish it would have gotten more attention from others. It has been a great supplement. Plus the bottle is lasting and it was cheap as hell last I checked on NP.

    It just isn't worth it to me. Train smarter and try to avoid injuries. I am all about making things more efficient but not painful for the sake of pain.

    Will post about my chest/shoulders workout later. It got a bit side tracked towards the end. Started talking a bit with an amateur bodybuilder I know. Apparently he is desperate for leg growth because he wants to train legs with me haha.

    Got my chiropractic adjustment and massage today. Saw a pretty new assistant there. Plus my massage therapist pulled my hair...

  10. Chest and shoulders yesterday

    Db twist press 3*10 ramp up
    Incline bb elect worked up to 285 for 3. Felt easier than 275 last time.
    Tried to pause press 365 but not quite haha. Did find out I could use the 4th notch on my weight lifting belt.
    Pec deck

    Heavy db swings 60*25,30,35
    Cage press 5*5 ramp up
    Front db raise 4*10 ramp up
    Face pulls

    Like I said spent some talking. Probably tricked someone into training legs with me. Funny thing is he wants to train legs with me. Should be fun to torture another person. He made it sound like he pukes easy so haha.

  11. Solid ass inclines!

  12. Sunday was chest/shoulders

    Db twist press 3*10
    Incline bb worked up to 295 for 3. Felt pretty good.
    Flat bb press clusters with 275 4-4-4, 4-4-2 15 second rest between clusters
    Pec deck

    Heavy db swings sets of 25 increase weight
    Seated shoulder press machine plate loaded you go I go sets of 10
    Front db raise 3*10
    1 arm db up right rows 3*10

  13. Monday was back

    Meadow rows
    Trap bar rows
    Dead stop DB rows
    Seated cable rows
    Stretchers
    Reverse seated lat pulldowns with a wide neutral grip
    Snatch grip high pulls
    DB shrugs with 3 second flex at top

    Only took 4 caps. Only have 8 more left. Wanted to make sure I had 8 for legs on Wednesday. Got a good pump going. Really hit some hard contractions. Lats flared up big with the stretchers. Quite a bit of volume looking at it all written out.

  14. Smart man, saving 8 caps for leg day!

    I can relate on amazing myself from time to time with all the volume once I write out what I did in the gym.
