New training log
I need to keep a log somewhere, i figured this was as good a place to do it.
i am currently dieting, i am down from the 275-280 area to 255-260 in about 6weeks. Going to get down to 248-250 and hold so i can do my next meet at 242. I also feel much better here. If i go back up to 275 it will be a leaner 275. the supps i am taking are extend around 3 servings a day, vasocharge before workout, NOS level 1 after and on off days.
Bench worked up to 405x2 not bad considering the rapid weight loss
incline 225 2x10
Rear delt exercises 6 sets of 10-12
face pulls 3x12
30 minutes of cardio

I hurt my back pretty bad two weeks ago pulling off the plates. And i have just started squatting again after an 8 month long layoff. Due to various issues, and one that i am just going to try and work around and get one meet in before i have to possibly have surgery.

deads singles up to 495 and it felt heavy. ( pulled and easy 545x3 standing on the 100's 5 weeks ago) back is still real week.

no training today, had a mucocele removed from my mouth, four stitches and some bleeding. Just going to enjoy the vic's while they last. I am really sore from the last two workouts, not sure why, but this is probably a blessing in disguise. Also back on my diet this week.
07-30-2009, 08:46 PM
took and extra day, mouth is killing me, mainly because i am tryin to eat a bit. I probably had 4 meals in 48 hours the first two days.
parallel box squats loose single ply briefs. 8x2 325 Trying to get some conditioning, my groin is definately not used to this, i have to really take this slow and remember i have not been squatting for along time.

the guy who got me into powerlifting, Joel Toranzo, is back in they gym. He just competed in his first bodybuilding show in 15 years a couple weeks ago and he is looking sick. He was 340 at the height of his lifting and is about 240 right now. He was onstage at 210 a few weeks ago.

So i capped some 20% banaba and Yellow Gold today. I think i am going to come off the no carb and try and take in 100 grams of carbs pre workout with 500mg of banaba and 700 mg of YG. Then on my way to the gym some vasocharge/JP8, i have both, and then during my workout another 700mg of YG followed by 32 oz of gatorade (50 g carbs). Post workout will be a serving of NOS ether level 1 and about 20grams of BCAA's. May go no carb the rest of the day and on non workout days, or keep the carbs to just breakfast, not sure.

No gym today but i weighed 254. Time to hault this here, I don't want to lose much more. I think i can sit between 252-254 and make weight at 242. I have not been eating much due to these damn stitches.

I am changing a few things, and am going to start getting ready for a real training phase to compete again. I will be doing some singles before my higher end stuff. I get much more explosive doing moderately heavy singles as opposed to traditional speed work. I have learned this the last few times around with my singles programs.

worked out with one of my old training partners and a few new guys today. I think they all want to compete. So looks like i am on the road to a 3 lift meet sometime at the end of the year. Hopefully they do the ipa carteret meet again. Going to break my workouts up like this it looks like.
Sun DE squat
Thurs DE squat/dead
Fri upper body accessory. The mon fri is not ideal but it will work
Todays workout DE squat
Box squat just around parallel, loose boss briefs from when i was heavier
all done with green band and fast
GM's worked up to 325x5x5 felt good, my hips were the weak point which is odd. I guess from my first time squatting wide in about 18 months.
Inverted situps various heights 5x5
Reverse Hypers 3x12 210
Felt good to be lifting like this again. Will most likely be following a westside templaet for Squats/Deads and rotating max effort work eow dead and squat. I will be using GM's and some SLDL's and Rom Deads as supplemental work keeping them in 3 week mini cycles. I will do the 3 week wave as well with the DE squatting, not sure. I have along way to go.

DE squats got about halfway through and the area that seems to be my patella tendon was causing me problems. Shut it down, got the name of my friends orthopedic surgeons and calling tomorrow. We will see what is wrong. It has been years, probably time i get this looked at and get an MRI

Went to the ortho today, nothing is torn he says. He thinks i strained the area where the quad attaches to the quad tendon just above the knee cap. That is good news. The mass that is in my leg is not a mass, but bone. I did not know this, good to know. Supposedly from when my growth plates were still open. Here is todays workout.
