    off topic, me and a friend of mine were talkin about how dealing with "fake" people can piss us off. for me, i had to thank those who have been in my corner and have been real with me especially USPLabs & proteinfactory..those people tell me stuff i don't want to hear at times but i know i need to hear it. we support one another as well and that's what its about...

    ***looks like i'm back to eatin plates again. speed deads are goin very well at the moment sumo. we will see what it does to my conventional deads. shrugs, rows, and curls are goin up using DC style. benchin tonite went well too. used a triple-ply phenom which was loose in my opinion. got 785 and missed 925. i had a few loose screws attempting 925 but i wanted to just have stress about touchin weight etc. just loading the bar and goin balls to the wall...

    i'll be repeating that idea on squats,

ITS AWESOME. worked up to 255 for 5 on standing militaries, 325 on cg floor press, and 315 for 5 on speed bench with bands. it was a ball-bustin indeed...branch warren's new cd is ****in awesome...

    ***training has been gettin more and more intense lately. weights are going up cause of this short rest between sets and moving up weight and reps. squat day was ****. didn't feel it that day. accy days were awesome. seated militaries made a huge jump after doin standing militaries and would make a huge difference on heavy bench day as 785 was moving very strongly but no touch. goin back to some old school stuff that worked before and had better condition as well. you'll see this change on squat day. sumo speed deads went ****ty too. 495 didn't move fast like last week but will change that this week.

    gettin back focused,

  15. ***had a deload week last week. first one i've taken in a long while. got a lot of stressful **** goin on right now but as always, i will figure it out. anyways, a few highlights...

    -did 500 raw bench easy so repping it should happen soon
    -squats felt light because of all the band loading we've been doin
    -tripled 585 raw on deads. need to find that fire on deads again
    -did 635 reverse band bench this past sunday...thanx to inclines and flyes, i "beasted" it up
    - did 405 on zercher oldie...good for the core.
    - did 405 for 3 sets of 10 on raw bench...starting new bench program. felt like **** so those should of been a helluva lot easier.

    things are about to change now. goin towards more raw right now though too til i'm able to do full gear training again...


  16. Nice numbers,.. keep up the good work!
    The workouts seem intense, and even your deloads are awesome!

    *** training went well tonite. decided on a meet...bench nationals in feb so taking the next 10 weeks to do a true strength training program before i starting training for that meet. trained til i almost puked though...overhead press from pins-335x3; incline bench- 335x3; push presses-265x3 and then 155x20..easy ****. i will be doin front squats in place of leg presses cause i ran out of plates tonite while doin leg presses. throwing the ego out the door and goin outside my comfort zone to get stronger..i'm doin bench nationals raw btw...taking time out now to get stronger and faster. i already have plans in place to train for bench nationals..everything was done explosively and fast while still using moderately heavy my training sessions are goin to look weird for the next 8 weeks or so...including the numbers because reps are being done explosively as i can without losing form and with increasing weight/reps. this will help me well when i start my training cycle and it will allow me to strengthen everything.

    new start,

    ***raw bench went well. was at a gym where the 4 45s took up damn near the entire bar. that's a first. only did a set of 3 with 430 using the wrong setup. the 335 felt a lot better using the setup i have been using. nuthin wrong with experimenting i guess. didn't work a lot of work that day cause i would be doin a bench accy day on wednesday. tonite i did squats and man my soul is still trying to re-enter my body after that session. all raw no wraps but belt. felt very strong and the speed was there. overshot my reps like the program requires. then there was the 6 sets of hell with front squats with minimal rest. when i get 6 reps on all sets with 6 sec rest i'll be able to move up in weight. bw is 330-332 right now. gettin back on my feet is goin to be slow but nationals are on my mind and i don't know how but after squattin like this tonite it made me realize two, its been a while since i went that hard on squats and two, squatting tonite made me very hungry again. i like it...

    the hunger is back,

  19. Nice update, can't wait to see what you're going to do.. I've never really followed a training log of someone your size.

    HS BTN press

    side laterals

    ***tonite was strictly accessory work for the bench which means nuthin resembling a "flat bench" pretty much which worked like a charm before. tonites goal was also to be more explosive on my lifts and not to be slow. worked on all of them save inclines. goin to do barbell inclines next week since i was explosive on them last week. you never know til you experiment. everything else was explosive so good there. bw is holding at 330 and gettin more solid and functional. 5 weeks of this training program and i'll be gettin ready for nationals mid december. for once i'm sticking to something thats gettin me stronger and keeping me from "ego-lifting". xKBS is explosive kickbacks btw...

    and that's a good thing,

    ***all the time i had tonite. went to a gym that said they were open til 6 but were closing at 5. pissed me off so i had to go to another gym. anyways, every rep was explosive and fast. going sumo for a while to strengthen it and then goin back to conventional at the end of the 6 weeks. been a while since i've done this much work on deads. back was fried and i was sweating hard so it was workin.

    solid session,

    ***i know there's a lot of **** here but i had to make up for not doin back on dead day cause of the gym hours. raw bench was very easy from what people were saying. eric sproto gave me some advice on the bench that worked. that's the reason for the 20 rep sets with 135 and 225. just enough to get warmed up but not enough to blow the work ahead. all the reps were easy so achieving the + reps werent' a problem. speed and explosiveness was the key. back work was vicious but i loved it...also thoughts from eric. he and i have the same ideas on training and he does a lot more back work cause it feels it isn't enough when its 2 movements. i agree. so i upped my back work instead now that i'm using my back more on the bench...i mean lats. lol. worked up to 545 for 3 on rows and 4 plates per side on hammer strength pulldowns. went heavy on hammers cause i was finally in front of some 150s. this session was very intense and every rep was explosive. onward to squats...

    for nick winters,

    front squats


    ***tonite was squat nite after work and i ****in loved it. gotta learn to keep sittin back on my squats cause when i do, they get easier to do. nite and day ya know? the 520 for 6 wasn't bad and 445 was a lot better when i got focused. yea..i use too much retard strength when i don't focus on doin the movement "right". next week will be "sit back...sit back.." front squats i'm gettin the hang of. took little rest between sets and was goin to do 4 but went 6 cause i was loving the movement and the pain involved and also was squatting "right". did abs and was out. will resume doin leg curls and leg extensions on bench accy day though...the good thing when i train this way...when i'm exhausted...all that's left is the killer instinct to keep doin...

    yea..i had trouble walking out of the gym,

    ***one kickass session today. i felt good. kept away from any barbell and flat back movements that would resemble a regular bench so i opted for those movements. i need to do some db work to work on more stabilizers. first time goin heavy on dips..was pleased with 180 plus 330 in bw. the gym had a plate loaded seated press which with 2 45s per side was hard so its truly worked my stabilizers. then finished up with heavy rear db laterals and abs. next up deadlift day..

    ***today was ball-buster and came close to a big vomit at the end had it not been for the cold air we have down here right now. sumo deads went faster than i thought they did on video. i was shocked. 2 week of this program and next week is a speed week. want to do some heavy shrugs and worked up to what i could fit on the bar...965 and did 3 sets of it and on vid they may not look like they went up much but I AM feeling these now as i type this. its sick. moved onto rows and did 2 supersets and finished up back and hammers and abs and was out. vids will have to come later as i'm flat out exhausted from this session but i love it.

    when pain become pleasure, then you will have the gain,

  28. Damn bro that was a serious workout! Good job

  29. thanx brother!

    ***tonite was an ok session. speed bench took some adjusting since i didn't have a 2nd pair of bands and that will be fixed the next speed week but did what i could. finished up with 405 for 6 and did it again for 8 reps with the speed better and using more lats. the goal is 10 on these after speed work and didn't want to keep using 315 so i moved up to 405. i know i could do 315 for 15+ reps after speed work. anyways moved on to some direct chest work and tricep work. felt a tons strong on the CG floor presses...moved up to 365 for 5 and moved up to 120s on kickbacks. next speed day will be better...and

    405 for 10 will be done,

    ***tonite was the first session on the chaos 513 project and i believe this will do something for me big time. even though i got 405 for 8 on the first set, on the last 380 for 5 felt like i could of done 15 which meant that 405 should of been a cake walk. but no worries. i will get 415 for 10 reps a month for now when i start this cycle over again. i ****in feel it. then went to incline hammer strength where i did 2 sets heavy with 8 plates and then took off a plate and added 2 100s and did another set and then the last set was awesome! though moving up on weight on these will be a problem since i'm maxing out the machine. both me and bj were. he was training with me tonite. he didn't start strong on the bench but finished strong. he skull****ed 340 for 4 reps easy after gettin smashed with 405. he 6-0, 275 and built for a big bench, he just doesn't know it yet. we finished up with pec deck and pushdowns. can't wait to do squats and deads which will be done on the same day...

    i'm loving this already,
