    ***this i would say was a good bench session. stuck to the numbers and kept the ego aside. went and killed 445 for a single after all those sets. BJ did great tonite...his bench continues to move up. went to db inclines and really killed some 130s and 140s on those. we'll be moving up to 140s and 150s soon. week 1 of this cycle BJ went from 365x2 to 375x3 this week on week 3. 10lbs and 1 rep. on week 1 i did 430x1 and on this week did 425x3 and 445x1. these numbers are scaring me a bit. we are moving up fast on this. we are goin to change where we bench be able to keep stable. the bench we've been using has been a really low bench. i got ideas on how to fix this next week and just for my strongman brothers pat wilson and don sellers, i did some one-arm db presses for fun with the 100s for 5 reps. they were easy once i got the hang of it. lookin foward to deads on saturday morning...

    ***got this session done in 2 hours pretty much but i killed it. deads was a lot easier(grip wise) thanx to the high rep shrugs i've been doin. on the vid i'm holding 535 at the top for a bit and usually when i fatigue my grip like to slide to my tips of my fingers. still progress goin from 475x7 to 535x4 last week and 505x5 this week and 535x3 which were easy compared to the 535 for 4 last week...definitely left some in tank. next week starts the speed work with bands. the pullups today were easy too...14 total reps at 325 and db curls went up too. they will help with the bench and deads believe it or not. i know i do a lot of crazy **** but its all geared towards the bigger picture...2300 raw total. to me everything i do, plays a part. why am i doin ridiculous weight? well cause i can. the accessory work has to get stronger just like the main lifts has to get stronger...

    ***today starts the strength specialization phase of chaos513. you'll be seein me doin box squats/raw squats, pin presses/raw bench, and deficit deads/raw deads over the next 3 weeks. worked up to 405 with 300 in band tension on box squats with max speed against that much weight so doin 225 for 3 sets of 3 was easy and doin 315 for 2 singles at the end was easier and faster than i did on the first 4 sets. then i did a repout with 315 for 14 reps for my bro nate glines...he did 17. lol. band leg presses were awesome but staying with 720 til i get 6 reps and i can add a few more plates. be sure to read the quote in the first 10 secs of vid tonite...something that alot of lifters are missing today...something that greats like ed coan, bill kazmaier, kirk karwoski, etc did in their day...

    ***this a session from hell...i mean literally. the gym was very humid tonite but i like that though. lol. anyways, worked up 315(525) on band pin presses and then worked back up again to 225(435) for 2 sets of 3 with little rest between sets. BJ did 275 after missing it (485). then we did raw bench after that...BJ had done 6 reps with 315 and a easy single with 365. i had done 315 for 15 and then did 5 more after that in my arched setup. we benched in the rack using a different bench and i believe its higher. oh well, me and BJ killed db inclines. we both did 2 sets of 6 with 150s. BJ had took jack3d, pink magic, and prime before we lifted and he was an animal...i mean literally. it was awesome and motivating for me. db shoulder presses were hard to do by my self but did 130s for a set of 5 and a set of 4 and then repped out 100s for 15 reps. did some higher reps on CG floor presses and my triceps were dead by the time i did 225 for 18. love it. pin presses are goin to be with us for the next 3 weeks. tonite we just killed some ****in u should do...yea i might have came close to vomiting again but the pace i move sometimes i have to slow down i bit. but this is training and i'm puttin myself thru hell to get vids tonite as the battery on my cam was dead. sucks i know.

    go thru hell and be stronger...yup.

    ***deads was a great session. took me some time to figure out the band setup on deficit deads but got it working once i did. worked up to 455(conventional stance) not too bad which was 655 at the top. then worked down to 225 for some speed work and back up to 365. then did some raw deads which were done with laughable speed...505 was the fastest i've ever moved that weight in a long while. then did barbell shrugs...675 for 78 and 1035 for 10...and my traps are ****in sore my rows went up this week...625 for 5 no prob. nate glines killed 505 for 5 and he's around 200ish...worked up to 120s for 4 on db curls and 130s on single-arm hammers and was out. once again, had to cut this session short but got what i needed done. now onto week 2...i will tell ya that my grip has gotten stronger recently...

    ***today's squat session was awesome. my bro, don, was there again doin his strongman training so we were pushing each other on what we were doing. when he saw me do 345 for 5 easy on box squats with 300 plus bands...he asked if i was goin to add weight to the ****in bar? i ****in loved it. went to 375 for 5 reps. really surprised myself considering last week i did 405 with the same tension for a single. quick progress there. straight weight was odd as **** but repped out 405 for 14...had to stop on the last three cause i lost count and had to see how many i had!! went without the bands this week on leg presses and still moving weight up fast on them. i'll be back on them next week. finished up with leg extensions, leg curls, calves and abs. don wanted to do more weight on the cable rows since he maxes out the stack and added my mini to the mix which added probably 80 more lbs.. good news, it worked wonders. bad, the band ate it. but no worries...i managed to find 3 minis stashed in storage so who knows...i might be able to do more band tension...

    ***this session i didn't do what i wanted but my speed is up which is key. the retard presses were sick. last week i did 315 plus only 200 plus at the top on bands for a single and this week did a double with 275 with 250 additional at the top so that's BIG progress. the speed with 315 was very fast just hit that wall early. BJ made 405 look easy after benchin and so did I. the rest of the session was crazy(even though i was pissed for not gettin 15-18 reps on bench with 315)....don came in later and did some seated rack shoulder presses. he's a strongman competitor and found a good use for that movement. me and him went at it on this movement. it was hunger and fire at its best. how lifting should be. he ended up with 285 and i did 295. we were pushing one another and talkin **** too. hadn't been pushed like that in a long while by anyone really. it really shows though how much stronger i am with competition. hell had it been me by myself, i probably wouldn't of gone but now i know how to push myself harder is what i learned from this.

    ***this was a great session. just wanted to slam some ****in weight as i had some more aggression this session. deficit deads went well...worked up to 505 plus bands at the top...which is more than what i did last week with band/weight. then worked up to a single speed with 585. was surprised at how fast it moved off the floor. hadn't lost a step on my conventional stance and i'm happy about that. moved up big on rows and repped out 585 on shrugs for 90 reps. session was very awesome. first time trying yok3d btw...its insane! bw is still 325 but i'm getting stronger. my bro nate glines may have given me the best advice on squat thus far and its what helped him alot on his squats.

    **tonite squat session was ****in awesome. worked up to 505 and 525 for 2 singles on band box squats with +250 on bands. alot of what nate recommended to me paid off in form and i'm defintely goin to keep it up. it was an article on 3rd world squatting and got some ideas from it. it was awesome. anyways did some high rep squats afterwards and defintely easier goin deeper now considering what i was doin "mentally". i don't know what possessed me to do that many sets on leg presses but **** it. i went with it. BJ is out for surgery so i'm training solo on bench this week...

    ***this week session was ****in better. went back to my arched setup and modified it a bit and its better. worked up to 315 plus 240 on band bench and repped out 315 for 17 reps. the speed was better and it was controlled. locked my lats in every set and every rep. felt good. did some overhead rack presses which would be a good sub for seated militaries since my gym doesn't have one. 335 was hard but still pressed it up from the pins. did 2 sets with 120s on front laterals too which is big for me and still did 6 reps with 335 on CG floor presses despite havin pre-exhausting them. BJ came out of surgery ok and he's recovering now. now we will see what back day brings...

    ***this was pure hell. i was sleep deprived but ****, had work to do. started out with pin pulls with +200 in bands and worked up to 605. then i worked up to 635 on raw deads. should of taken one more set before hand but i wasn't in my right mind for some reason. went onto shrugs with 20 rep sets with 675 and 765 and 2 sets with 1035 and then a set of 15 with 855. juggled my sets a bit on rows for a change of pace...675 was easy. bein sleep deprived defintely puts your mind in different place...kinda kool really. squats are up on monday and its the final week of strength specialization...

Yok3d strikes again. killed 545 stronger than i thought i would to be honest. squattin a bit wider this week to see if its a difference and in the form it is. a lot different. it was a little easier squattin this week than it has been in the past. next week should be interesting indeed though i came close to puking and that is always awesome. got 5 reps more than last week on repouts and its gettin more and more comfortable for me on squats. i wanted to end this strength specialization cycle hittin the heaviest weight i could off a box and i did that. bench day should be fun!!

    ***tonite i had a really focused session. final session with bands so like squats i need to go all out. every set was fast as hell too. i'm proud of that. i finished up with 335 which was 590 at the top..more than last week. finished with repouts with 24 reps with 315. i ****in lost count and had to hit the camera real quick and bang out 6 more after the first 18. i hate that. did some seated behind-the-neck overhead presses this week off pins. defintely hard without the momenteum and doin them from a dead stop. goin to give this a run for a few weeks and see what happens. did some CG pin presses after seein garrett griffin do then and they hit the tris for me harder and they were done a few inches or so from lockout. a friend of mine though gave me another movement to try out next week for triceps. gotta experiment with new stuff every now and again...

    ***today was a ball-buster. the volume went up on everything so i'm goin to still move up in weight using the same volume. love it though. the deficit band pin pulls were awesome. 635 was very strong and didn't feel heavy like the 585 a week before. also doubled 545 with the same amount of tension. the volume on shrugs and rows were great but the bar weight on both needs to be moved up to make it harder. experimented on a lot this week to see if it will work and it seems it will. we'll see what happens on squat day...

    ***tonites squat session was good ****. upped the reps on my warmups which worked out well for me. 475 wasn't too bad and neither was 515 at the easy double and went for another single after that without much rest. i'm bad about that. lol. still staying with the increased volume and see what happens to my strength at this point. the last chaos513 cycle, week 1 i did 465x8 and 505x1 and this time..did 475x8 and 515x2 which is big progress for me...especially without knee wraps right now. lookin foward to bench....the depth on these were better and more comfortable...STILL needs work nonetheless.

    ***bench day wasn't my best but i will get better and stronger. the volume is still high where i like it and this is just the first week so these numbers will be going up on week 2. i also wasn't recovered from practicing squats those few days before but they will pay off as i know what went wrong or rather what i need to do to fix it. deads was a gut-check day. all i can say. grip was struggling to hold on but i still pushed it. i'll be adjusted to this in the next week for sure. i'm actually excited on what this new training cycle will bring. i defintely need conditioning and speed before this meet which i'm ready for...

    ***thanks to a few friends i took a different approach to this session and i'm glad i did. squats were deeper thank to the 100s of 3rd world squats i've done at home to help. by the time i got to the gym, they were 2nd nature to me. did some box squats squats and did 5s...worked up to 585 for 5. next time..635. did suicide squats after that to really bring practice into play more and more and let it be more instinctive than anything. they helped. 3rd world squats are deep squats out of a smith machine. me and my bro, josh thought it would be a good idea to help in us gettin deeper squats. tonite's session felt a lot better than its been in weeks on squats and its fun squattin again. love it!! goin deep now isn't a problem for me. there is a lot of "pop" out of the hole when i went deep. awesome ****...
