    I can imagine not doing them..lol.

    I will be doing them 3 days a week starting on the 3rd. M, W, and F. I will do 2 exercises, with 10-15 reps, and they will be supersets for 3 Total sets with 30 sec. rest. Hopefully that will put them in gear. I need to learn more about the ab muscle. I dont work them nearly as much as I should.


  2. I swear if you look at a lot good physiques of people that are famous it is ALL abs. Example: Ryan Reynolds, Mark Whalberg etc. etc. etc. like where the hells the lats guys.

    Lats..ive never worked them. I think I will in the summer though to "even" out my body and look more like a bodybuilder/athlete. not sure.

    **I didn't have school today so i will be doing Legs/Back tommorow. It will more of a deload workout becuase my powerlifting competion is on Saturday.

  4. Doing Straight Arm Pull-Downs have really helped my arm strength. Finally got me over the 80mph hump. That movement is where most of the finish of your throw come from.

    Yea, or you can use the Lat pull Down machine. Another that works ok is DB Pull-Over. It doesn't hit the exact muscle but it stil gets workd. I'd do those on chest days.

    Alright I'll look into using those during my cut (half of my HS season)

  8. I'm not gonna discuss the whole dumbbell pull-over on chest day, had to many heated discussion at my gym about it.

  10. Prepping for my meet. Crazy crap.

    Took 1 LR, 1 hour before my workout. I feel that is my sweet spot. I dont know if I really want to bump the dosage up to 2
    pills Pre-WO. We shall see.

    Squat:
    225lbs x 5 (idk warmup)
    275lbs x 1
    325lbs x 2
    335lbs x 0 (1st was not low enough, 2nd rep i went to far down and failed)
    335 mis
    340 miss
    315lbs x 1

    Straddle Deadlift:
    135lbs x 10
    225lbs x 8
    365lbs x 3
    425lbs x 1

    455lbs x 1 (NEW PERSONAL RECORD)

    475lbs x 1 (Shatterd PERSONAL RECORD)

    then my knee went into pain..I'll be fine.

    sucked at benching...did lots of stretching.

    Leviathan Reloaded:
    10/10 for Everything. Fantastic Workout.

    I Just don't feel it works the chest well enough to be considered a "chest exercise". The only time your chest is actually doing work is at the top part of the rotation. What I tend to do at the end of my chest work-out is just grab 2 25 pound plates hold em together and bring them in and out(don't know how to describe good).
    Anyways, I think the Overhead actually works the lats better then the chest but correct me if I'm wrong.

    Gotcha, I was talking using it more of a lat/pec minor tie in exercise. One for baseball. Actually the pec minor is used most at the bottom, as the muscle is used to expand the ribcage (from what I learned in anatomy) If it really dose much for chest development i dont know and wouldn't do this exercise if I didn't play ball.

    Since I was doing chest monday and back friday. It would get hit twice a week.

  13. ohhhh ok I understand that makes sense.

  14. when you squat do you box squat cause i suggest doing box squats every other week and the inbetween weeks go on the leg press and go super wide pointing your toes out high reps in the 20 range and go heavy, i guarentee youll hit that 500lb deadlift within a month easy!

    No and I won't be powerlifting or deadlift until further notice.


    Yesterday after I pulled 475, I pulled a something in my knee. idk what. No more deadlifting or catching.

    Im still gonna squat though and I am going to replace the deadlift with powercleans on leg/back days.

    EDIT: I need to do more box squats though. I enjoyed them and did feel somewhat stronger.
    Thank you for that tip king. I bet if I never hurt myself last year, I could pull 500 by my birthday.

  16. Damn dude sorry to hear about that. I'm sure you'll be up to full strengths in no time.

    Thanks for the support bro. I know I will be fine by Monday. To be honest, I really don't care about not deadlifting. I planned on taking 2 months off during my cut and not go heavy until next November. Im not going to be breaking state records in the 250lb weight class, so nobody besides close family really cares.

    I need to focus on being an athlete, not a strongman. Even though I cant catch, I can still play Outfield.
  18. Please check my original post.


    Well guys I have been editing so many things about my cut, but I do have my 'plan' all ready to go.

  19. so what does your final plan look like>?
