  2. Exclamation Max Squat Day


    Tonight was max squat day.

    Here's what happened:
    Warmup: Stretch, 135x8, 185x5, 225x3

    Equipment used: Belt, Rehband Knee Sleeves

    Max lifts:
    275 (Got it, easy)
    285 (Got it, easy; missed this weight several weeks ago)
    300 (Got it, slightly less easy) +15lb PR
    315 (Miss*)
    *Went down, and right as soon as i started going up, i leaned forward so my spotter had to pull me back. After this, though, I'm fairly certain I got the rep without any help. Still counting it as a miss.

    Cool down with some stretching and rolling out.

    Weight (no shoes) at end of W/O: 147.05

    -------
    I'm fairly happy with how things went today. I'm right about where I want to be with squats, and I'm confident that I can hit 315 at the comp. It'll be a 15lb meet PR using the Rehband knee sleeves. The last time I hit 315 was using knee wraps, which would make me an equipped lifter.

  8. thanks dood, gonna give it my all

    diet was absolutely terrible yesterday...2 pieces of cinnamon toast, two chicken quesadillas from TB, and a big bowl of ice cream is all i ate yesterday.

    weighed in this morning with my stomach growling (and after a trip to the bathroom) at 144
  9. Exclamation Max Deadlift Day


    deadlifted tonight, instead of benching.

    anyway here's how it went.

    warmup:
    stretch, 135x10, 225x5, 275x2

    Max Lifts:
    315 (Got it)
    355 (+20lb PR! Got it)
    375 (Totally missed it, couldn't even get the weight off the ground)
    Not really very happy with this turn of events. I would've been able to live with getting the weight halfway and then failing, but not being able to get the weight off the ground is pretty saddening.

    Rolled out, did some pullups, weighed in at 148.05 and left.

    Friday'll be max bench day

    355 though man, holy crap that's pretty f*cking awesome. 375 is just something to work for that much more now. I know you got it.

  11. With two days down, the totals are as thus:

    Squat: 300
    Deadlift: 355

    Now, I'm pretty confident that I can hit at least 305 on squat, if not the full 315 that i'm shooting for.

    What this means for bench is that I have to hit 225 in order to qualify for Nationals. After a pretty bad day for deadlifts, my confidence in my bench is shaken, so I'm going to relax the next few days, forget about today and go in on Friday with the mindset that I'm going to rock the gym.

    thanks SB. that vote of confidence is something that i really needed to hear after missing the lift. i'll make sure i don't disappoint at the meet.

  13. You call getting a PR "bad"? LOL Anyways, awesome on getting the PR. We all have days we don't consider that great re training; like you said, let it fly and focus on making your next one awesome.

  14. max bench tonight! goin for the Two Plate Club!
  15. Exclamation Max Bench Day


    tonight's workout:

    this was an interesting one

    warmup: stretching, bar x 10, 135x5, 175x4

    Max Lifts:
    205 (Got it, pretty easy)
    225 (Missed it, felt like I almost had it)
    225 (Again, missed it, did worse than the rep before)
    215 (Got it, for some reason, felt easier than 205. I did use a slightly wider grip)

    At this point, I was feeling rather inspired, so I decided to take another shot at 225. I used the same slightly wider grip that I had for the 215 rep.

    225 (Got it) +10lb PR!!!!!!

    TWO PLATE CLUB
    This rep was a touch and go, probably didn't pause long enough for it to count in competition, but nonetheless, it wasn't a bounce, which makes me very happy!

    No scale at the gym today, but i'm guessing i'm around 145ish.

  16. alrighty. here's how it all comes together.

    In order to qualify for nationals at the 148lb Weight Class, I need a combined total of 885lbs between Squat, Bench, and Deadlift.

    Here's how I did at the previous competition (in April)
    Squat:
    255 Good
    275 Good
    315 Fail

    Bench:
    185 Good
    210 Fail
    210 Good

    Deadlift
    275 Good
    300 Good
    330 Good

    Total: 275 + 210 + 330 = 815lbs; 70lbs short of National Qualifiers.

    For the upcoming competition, I'm going to open with these:

    Squat: 305
    Bench: 215
    Deadlift: 335

    I'm confident I can hit these with relative ease. And I'll only need to add 30lbs between them to qualify and reach 885. I'm excited.

    thanks!

  21. workin out at home this week, and the stuff i have at home is pretty limited.

    the squat arm on the home gym system doesn't go low enough so i was forced to do hack squats today

    hack squats:
    3 sets, 10 reps up to 160ish (even the weights on this thing are oddly numbered)

    leg extensions:
    3 sets, 10 reps

    leg curls
    3 sets, 10 reps

    increased the weight on each set, but it was still fairly easy each time. still restin up for the big meet.

  22. Hacks are good sh1t man.

    indeed they are.

    all this week has been just real light lift, partially because i have family in town and have been spending a fair amount with them.

    anyway, the 2x prime and Free AP came today, and i took stock of what i have. 3x Prime (800mg dosage), 2x AP, 1x PowerFULL. I have partial bottles of Prime and AP back at school too (Gotta love Black Friday deals )

    after the comp, i'll be running these, along with some extend and vasocharge.

  24. That sounds like it'll be a fun few months after the meet.
