    I'm 24. Been lifting for ten ish years steadily., longest break I took was broken collar bone.

    Also, thanks for joining.
    Lol, I've been here for awhile. I just don't comment incredibly frequently.


    And, I'm just saying, in that picture you look like a jacked 12 year old. Nothing a little stubble can't fix.


    And as far as respirators, they said the same **** in the army about how it wouldn't work if you weren't clean shaven. I guess those SF guys didn't get that memo when they rolled around bearded out lol.

    Yeah me being beardless doesn't.help me look any older.

    Also I think I wrote that I was using the monster minis on flat bench.
    That is incorrect I've been using just the minis. Red, short bands from efts.

    I'm assuming (from the chart off elite fts) that it's roughly 60-70lb at the top.

    Yeah but you're a bit leaner than me, and probably stronger pound for pound.

    Fixed. LOL!


    But yeah being strong and eating well go hand in hand for me. I'm leaning down a little bit right now though. Gota clean that diet up and do some cardio. I'm excited to run some sprints again now that it's warming up.

  8. Trained back today

    One arm barbell row
    75x8
    85x8
    95x8
    105x8
    110x8

    Reeves deadlift
    135x6
    185x6
    235x6
    These were super fückin awkward, so I switched to snatch grip deadlifts, off of two one inch pads.
    225x6
    275x6
    315x6
    365x6
    400x5

    Well I suck. These felt way heavier than they should, and my form wasn't perfect so I didn't want to push it.

    I tried torquing and ham curl down like you guys talked about, and it felt like I was getting more tension / loading in my legs, but they were still so sore from Monday than I didn't get much from them.

    Elite fts dog bone pulldown attachment
    130x8
    170x3x8

    Pull down to the forehead, with a big stretch at the top.

    Db pullovers
    60x3x10

    Banded good morning
    thick blue band x3x20

    Rocky abs on ghr
    Bw x15,10, +10# x8

    Ab wheel
    3x15

    Calf work

    edit: Reeves deadlift
    http://youtu.be/LzWUuFFYr0o

    Banded Good Mornings: http://youtu.be/BdO-_CM7AW0

    I imagine max 60lbs at the top since that's what I was getting and I'm a pretty tall guy. Though, if we're to believe Rodja maybe you can get more or even less out of them due to the subpar QC at EFS regarding bands.

    BTW, nice training, and looking real jacked.

    Lol'd at jim's comment. And damn dude, you shave once a week? I have to shave every other day to look civil, and it's only EOD because e/d shaving causes too much razorburn.

  11. Thanks guys.
    Welcome toro, thanks for joining.

    As for the snatch grip, I had pointer finger on the ring of the barbell.. Probably not a true snatch grip but it was most comfortable for me.

    for the bands, it was just a rough estimate. Our benches sit on platforms, and the pins for the bands are on the platform, I just estimated they were stretched about three feet at the top.


    Unfortunately, I do not grow a beard like you do. It does make it easier for work, but if I had a choice I'd side with Jim, and grow a thick manly beard.

    Yeah, I'm either ED or EOD as well.


    Stupid grooming policies and ****.

  13. That's a massive snatch grip pull! Anything outside of the rings is enough to call it good. I like going pointer on the rings like you, so I can lock it out without having to maneuver around my ballz.

    Hey, gear is gear and weight is weight. I'll take gear and weight over no gear and little weight every time.

    For a hypothetical, if Sean squatted 650 to IPF depth and I put on two ply poly briefs, a three ply canvas suit, and four meter knee wraps and squatted 655 to exactly parallel and not a hair below, I would totally throw it in his face for a long time. But that's just me.

    Didn't end up training light back with the girl today.. Too busy doing... Cardio.

    Still low calorie low carb. Tomorrow I'll introduce a bit more carbs so I'm not depleted for legs on Monday.

  18. Just trained legs. Will update in a bit. For now, here's m#3
    3 cups couscous, probably 6-8oz English arm roast

    Real nice session bud. What did your calf work look like?

    I wish my gym had a SSB. I just started program three over. Love it lol
    Independent

  22. Yeah i've had awesome gains from program three.

    My calf work was inspired by Ben pakulaski, actually.
    I did a standing calf raise machine for eight reps, then I'd immediately do body weight standing calf raises off the floor (no stretch, just contracting as hard as possible for ten reps)

    I did these back to back, with little to no rests..
    about six to eight sets

    tomorrow I'll just do one set. Also inspired by bpak.
    10 reps ten second rest, twenty reps twenty second rest, all the way up to 40 reps..
    Then Wednesday or Thursday I'll do a mountain dog inspired, super setting a flexion exercise with dorsiflexion


    Edit:
    I love the SSB. I've been abusing it.
    It is really hard on my upper back and core, without jacking up my shoulders.

    Lol the reason I asked about calf work was I've been implementation bpaks stuff as well. Today I worked up to a fairly tough ten rep weight on standing calf machine then I preceded to get 100 reps in as few sets as possible. Calves were smoked.

    I'm going to do a lot of the same stuff you're doing.

    The reason I ask about the SSB is ref back squats kill my shoulder (I'm a low bar squatter) to tye point I hate squatting on heavy days. I have to do a ton or rear delt work and stretching before I squat lol. I think a SSB would be ideal for me but maybe not.

  24. Man, you may not have the chest hair to show for it, but that leg workout looks like it took a lot of chest hair to complete. Nicely done

    I don't actually see any questions here or in your last post regarding the SSB, just statements, so I can only guess as to what your question actually is. Something you need to know is that the SSB is cambered, and the weight sits a bit in front of your body. This actually makes the movement more similar to an olympic squat or to a front squat than a traditional back squat. The SSB is a really nice bar, but be aware that to "properly" use it you ought to either squat with a narrower stance or have really good hip mobility. Otherwise, if you lose the upright position you now are loading the lower back a whole lot and are turning the squat into a goodmorning, which is obviously a very terrible thing to do especially as a bodybuilder (goodmornings are not known as a quad builder, lol).
