    Taking the daughter on a canoe trip and fishing today.
    Tomorrow is the BJJ tournament we are holding. The director has decided he isn't coming up so I am now tournament director. I've helped run somembig wrestling tournaments before so this should be easy. Turnout is gonna be small, 30 pre-reg's. Hoping to get 10 at the door. Of the five local schools not one person is competing???
    One person has registered to compete???

    Tournament went very well. Small tournament but I think we will end up breaking even, which would be a great first tournament in my opinion. We had about 25 Gi competitors and 30 No-Gi competitors. No downtime, no empty mats, and Everybody got at least 2 matches in each category.
    Anton, good luck this weekend. I'm planning on being back to Rolling at the end of the summer. Got a big job lined up that is gonna pay for my new gym renovations.

    Decent workout. Got my sled from the school and gonna try it out Friday. Getting some tendinitis in my hip. I think it's from the stack lift. I'm gonna back off a little on it and use the sled for a bit instead and see how it goes on the hip. Good luck Anton, let me know how you do.

    I notice you do DE work on press and deads days. Where did you pick this up? Or did you just add it in? Curious to say the least. Good stuff in here. Ive been doing 5/3/1 for some time now too. The new book is worth the cash.

    Lou,

    I basically did it that way when i did a strict westside template so I carried it over. The difference was after DE bench I treated military as assistance 3x15, and after DE squats I always did speed pulls or heavy singles. I think this works well for me. I'm not an explosive lifter by nature so the speed work helps teach me acceleration and I don't do great with heavy singles so the high reps possible with 5-3-1 work better for me. Plus I am trying to maintain an athletic approach to my lifting so I can continue grappling and the higher reps gives me more time under tension.
    I plan on picking up the new book as soon as it comes out in book form. Looks worth the investment.

    Yeah, I have this original 5/3/1 in hardcopy. The new one comes out in hardcopy sometime in July according to Wendler. I haven't tried the 3/5/1 format yet. I've actually only been on the template since end of January. I am planning on doing my first meet in 17 years this fall and I may try it for that.

    DL (hook grip, 2.5" mats) 5x135 5x165 3x185 3x215 8x238 1/2

    Jack **** template for the next few weeks. I was sore and tired. Doing a deck for a guy and am sore from digging postholes in a place where no man should ever have to dig.
    A friend of mine and a great friend of powerlifting died Monday morning. Allan Siegel died in his sleep Monday morning. Al was a successful masters powerlifter and was president of several organizations, the old ADFPA, the AAU, and was co-founder and president of the ADAU. Al was one of, if not the primary, driving force behind raw, drug-free powerlifting in the northeast. I've known Big Al and worked almost every one of his power meets for the last 23 years. Good bye Big Al, you will be missed.

    Vacation workout. I was really only worried about the bench, the rest was meathead workout. The gym was a chrome and fitness palace. Terrible, just terrible. No chalk, no noise, nobody even remotely interesting. Not even gonna try and squat as they have no bars with center knurling. Only good thing was the radio station was 80's punk, killing joke, Fear, even some Blondie from before she went new wave.

    First workout back from vacation. Took it real easy on squats, I had at least another 4 reps, probably more but I was tight and sore from driving 11 hours so I backed off. This is always how my summer goes. I just try to maintain throughout June and July, and I'll start ramping up the intensity middle of August, after my last job of the summer. Gonna try and hit Press tomorrow. I'm leaving for another beach trip with my mothers family in two weeks. I'll be able to hit that gym and get some decent workouts in there, it's a former Gold's with a decent set-up.

    Shoulder Complex
    Bench 2x20x45 2x5x95 2x5x95 5x135 5x150 15x163
    Chins 4x8,8,8,8xBW supersetted with

    Skull Crushers 8x65 3x12,12,12x93 supersetted with
    Lever Bar 5x5 3x7,8,9x7 3/4

    Found a flaw in my plan. I thought it may happen but I needed to follow the plan through and see for sure. I need to do chins every bench workout or they fall off real fast. This was never a problem when I was fighting as I was always doing chins, but now I tried cycling exercises and it isn't working, so I'll be dropping underhand chins and Pulldowns and doing chins every Bench workout. Hopefully I'll be back to where I was in three or four cycles.

    Got a 120lb. stone from a guy to use for a while. It's just about the right size for me right now. I'll have to come up with some platform and something to drop it on. Already have a 3" hole in the yard from dropping it twice in the same place.

    Not bad for working 10 hours. I had more in the tank but didn't want to push it. I feel good and I think when I'm back to school and not doing labor I'll make some quick progress. Once I get more confidence in my lower back I think things will pop on squats and deads. That usually leads to a pop in everything.

    Was Late and I was having a hard time concentrating. Had a very unexpected death in the family and it had my mind distracted. Summer working is over so tomorrow starts my hard training for the power meet in October. I will be back on track for 3-4 days a week.

    Rigged up a tire so I could drag out on the road without to much noise and attention. Worked great except that I am so out of shape. I actually got a touch of prowler flu. Didn't puke but I'm gonna have to wait a half an hour to eat I think. Back is feeling good. Had more reps on squats but legs actually started to die on me. Sled should remedy that. May have a line on a big garage to rent right down the street to put all my equipment in and roll out my mats. Finally. On a comical note I had an old tractor tire at my old house that we flipped and pounded with a sledgehammer. I was gonna pick it up in a few more weeks to use when I noticed that somebody actually stole it??!! It was a 400# tire at least. They also took my trash box, but left the lid. WTF? I'd like to see the guy that loaded that f-er into a pickup truck.

    Decent workout. Gonna slowly amp up the conditioning one set at a time. Weight was to light for sled. I need to get a big piece of 2" rope to pull on the sled. the one I have isn't cutting it.

    Not bad. Getting the rebound effect from not doing manual labor for a week. Gonna start Creatine and Glutamine this week in preparation for the October meet. Not sure what I'm going to shoot for there. I'd really like to go around 315/215/315 for the meet. I think that this is plenty doable, but I'll get a better feel for it by the end of this cycle. During the 5/3/1 week I'm going to hit 2 singles for all three power lifts, and see about where I am. I'm also gonna get a good lever belt. I think this will help tremendously. I've been using a cheap, Walmart velcro belt until now. Anybody have any experience with the PR lever Belt? Looks awesome but at $140 It's a big purchase for me right now as the wife just lost her job Friday and we are now on a bit of a budget.

    Sorry to hear about your wife losing her job. I am not very knowledgeable with powerlifting gear so sorry I can't give you much advice on that...
    I just chimed in to say your workouts are great! And very motivational. I am switching from a standard BB workout to a 5/3/1. All I am working on now is the accessory program. reading your log for ideas

    Keep pushing the heavy ass weight!

    Mattrag, thanks for the input. I'm liking the 5-3-1 setup quit a bit. It let's me PR by formula almost every workout, even if it's only a tiny bit. Only advise I'd give is don't go crazy on the assistance. Hard but not killing yourself and slow steady progress. The micro plates work fantastic.

    Started creatine and glutamine today. Going to do 10 grams each on workout days and 5 grams on non-workout days. Hoping to get a kick from them. Haven't taken either one in like 8 years. Things seem to be going well. Slow but steady gains without killing myself. Getting a tad pudgy but I'm not too worried. Hopefully finally going to have a place to roll in a few weeks and going to get back with my normal schedule and teammates.

    Mean workout. Creatine and glutamine definitely add some boost in recovery and in muscle water retention so muscle endurance and output usually increase. Also, creatine has been shown to increase cardio output so your conditioning might see some improvement! (Not that you need it eh )

    Raining outside so inside conditioning. My IT Band is giving me terrible problems. It is so stiff and sore. I need a pile of warmups just to get going, then it is fine. Maybe I'll try to get back to some foam rolling and see if that helps. It didn't last time I did it, but I'll give it another go.
