P.A.V Training. Power,Accessory,Volume "training log"
Power,Accessory,Volume is a Hybrid training system I have developed to allow me to stay strong year round with minimum rest between competitions. I'm unlike many bodybuilders or powerlifters who do 1 show a year if they even do one a year. I have competed in 16 Pro, National and World competitions in 2 years. If your going to be a competitor and claim your bodybuilder/powerlifter then do it full force!! STOP making EXCUSES and COMPETE! If not take your training to the fullest and leave no regret!
POWER: Since I'm a Powerlifter that is the most important part of the game so I use tons of exercises to help build Power. barbells, dumbbells, machines and specialty equipment you wont find in you "commercial" gyms
ACCESSORY: when it comes to secondary muscles and training after a competition you always have to have accessory exercises to build up those key muscles and lifts "squat,bench,deadlift" When training for powerlifting its not always the big 3 that always make you the strongest. You have to find your weakest link, and if you get injured find other accessory lifts to help build and rehab.
Volume: Volume is everything! Too much, not enough you always have to have some volume after a meet and know when to adjust closer to the meet. You will see that sometimes the volume will be a **** ton or just a little bit. It all depends on recovery,supplements,C.N.S "central nervous system" and how close you are to a meet and after a meet to build a little more muscle and tendon strength.
I will be logging training for:
The UPA Pro Bench for Cash meet June 4th 2011 In Indy.
The IPA World Powerlifting Championships June 25-26 2011
The SPF Bench for Cash at Westside lifter Laura Phelps Sweatt gym
"Sweatt Shop". July 2011

Max Effort Bench Day
Supplements for Max Effort day 2 scoops of Taurus DA-HCG 1hr after waking up and 45min pre-workout 2scoops of Taurus Nutrition Wyked. 9scoops BC+EAA intra-workout. 10grams Glutamine and next week I will be adding 10grams Creatine 5 during with 40grams of carbs with waxy maize and 5grams of Creatine post.
Today was reverse band "Monster Mini" from the top of a power rack
Flat bench by Rogue Fitness competition dumbbell bench. The height is the same as a competition Forza
545 with SlingShot
Flat Bench off Comp Bench no bands 5then 4 and a half brd. Lockout Training "Volume-Accessory Training"
Tricep Hell: "Accessory-Volume Training" Close grip bench press off your chest then each board starting from 1-6for reps each. Then I went and did 5 full range again. was feeling very good and had great muscle endurance. so 225x40reps.
Extra long straight bar pull-downs "Accessory-Volume"
rotator exercises "Accessory"
15lb cables pulled out from the side of my body 20reps 3sets
wide-grip up-right rows "Accessory"
45lbs for 30 reps 3sets
Shoulder Horn "Accessory"
Usually I would be training in my OverKill Bench Shirt. If you looking for the best shirts that are mad CUSTOM and not a stock shirt you need to get a OverKill. benched 100lb more in my OverKill shirt in one year better then I have ever done with any shirt and I had tried both Inzer "Rage X" "Phenom"and Titan "F6" "Super Katana" Most of the best benchers in the World bench will a OverKill shirt.
The way I train isn't a typical 'Muscle and Fitness" routine, 2 chest and 2 tricep or chest and back routine. Neither is it a "Westside" principle routine. Yes there is Max effort and Dynamic effort. But there is no conjugated method either. I train the "Power" lift which is the bench and the muscles that help access the bench "shoulder,back,triceps" its a blend of Power, Accessory and Volume in one workout. Its hard to find time to train for 3 hrs in one training session but that's why this is done on Sunday and the other bench workout is on Wednesday if not Thursday. That workout will be a hour an a half. I train with 2 of the top female benchers in the world and a multiple world champion lifter who is 56yrs young. I have a very girted and knowledgeable crew. So it stakes time and its a great atmosphere to lift in. No drama no planet fitness just hardcore training at its finest. We do this every Monday, Thursday Friday, Sunday. Some times different days change but everyone is there for each other and no body is negative or disrespectful to the next lifter know matter what caliber the lifter. Our team is Triple X Powerlifting.
Looking forward to the next couple months on some new supplements and training to the fullest for these up coming competitions.

Max Effort Deadlift
Im getting ready to start training in gear in the next couple months so I would like to bring my raw lifts up more so when I do I can handle the tremendous weight that will be stressed over my tendons and body. Today I wanted to gpo heavy in the deadlift and the last heavy day I went was a couple weeks back and did 435 no belt nothing just grip and rip! So this is how it went
Supps 2scoops DA-HCG morning empty stomach and @ scoops Wyked 45min pre-workout.
445x1 belt on for the rest of singles. not a fan of a belt deadlifting or squatting but when it gets heavy, take no precautions. WEAR IT!
abs 100 full sit ups with 25 reps per set 4 sets
45lb side bends 4 sets 25 reps
45lb bar 25reps
250x15 add straps for the next 2 sets
250 full stack add 25lb for 15 reps
they get pissed when i do that at the gym. think I'm going to break the machine. I just tell them to add more weight to the stack!
DB shrugs/ with straps
Had a great workout! Deadlift needs some work but that's the gift of lifting, always have room to improve! Supps are great and really like Wyked. 2 really solid workouts with no jitters,clean focus, and plenty of energy.

Wed Overkill Shirt
OverKill Shirt on
palms facing out front raises
just a quick shirt workout. have a training partner competing in the APF/AAPF Master Nationals in Texas May. He had strained his pec and couldn't shirt up last Sunday and neither did I, so I decided to shirt up with him Wed. I usually Shirt bench Sunday but I wont this Sunday just more Raw lockout work. I usually have more volume but had to run because of a flat tire in the parking lot!
05-03-2011, 12:17 AM
Well Sunday Max Effort was one to remember.
Supps morning 1scoop Anadraulic State GT Fruit Punch pre-workout, Intra 9scoops BC+EAA during training Postal 3scoops post workout. Training lasts 10am-12:30. Max Effort Shirt Bench day.
435x1 with pause
465xmiss at the top
Great day with a #805 for 2 reps. now it will be time to tone down the Volume so I can recovery from the high loads of shirt training and heavy raw benching. C.N.S is taxed more then ever and need to save wait I have to hit a big full range PR at the meet. Thursday will be some raw speed work light with a bunch of rotator exercises and upper back an rear delt work. Going to stop benching full range now till after the meet. will be using a 2-3brd after #225 to try an keep my rotators from taking such a beating. benching weeks after months after years non stop for 17yrs you have to know when to shut it down, recover, and focus on another exercises so you don't injure yourself. now I will be focusing on lockout, back, and triceps.

Pretty awesome log man. I will be following this. All about the powerlifting.
It's funny, I was reading your first workout entry and saw "Tricep Hell." I just read an entry about that from Tate yesterday.
Anyways, look forward to seeing your progress up to your meet. What are your current PRs/what are you looking to break?

Thursday Dynamic Speed Day
1scoop Anadraulic State GT Fruit Punch, 9scoops BC+EAA, 3scoops Postal post workout. I'm very disappointed I will be out of BC+EAA, an Postal Soon. Love the taste and recovery of these products.
Speed Bench (9sets of three with 3 different grips)
225x9setsx3reps down with fast explosive reps with a 20sec rest periods in between.
4setsx20reps 65lb straight bar
incline chest press machine
palms facing out front raises "rotator cuff" exercises
Nice and light with tons of volume and speed.
These are recovery workouts to make sure that I don't over train. Felt great with a great pump.
The 9 sets of bench help with speed of the chest and is done with 45-50% of your raw bench max.

All done to build speed with 65% max effort weight. Not a lot of volume but 2 very difficult Power exercises. Squat an Deadlift. This is a day that really makes you or breaks you, cause when you start doing your sets and they go well its hard to tell your self to stick to the plan. When you really feel good and wanna push it!

Monday Max Effort Lower Body
Supps for this training day: 1scoop AS-GT FP,9scoops BC+EAA, 3scoops Postal and coming to the end of Postal soon!! Love that product. It will be deeply missed.
Safety Squat Bar close stance box squats. Helps with the Deadlift, an Squat. You wanna be in your deadlift stance with this one. I'm a conventional style deadlifter so I would be in a close stance. Squat down like your body would be as if you would be doing a deadlifting. This places a lot of stress on the back and quads. I don't squat with a manta ray which I used to do.
S.S Squat Raw
pull through's with a rope. Great for the lower back and accessory work.
rope attachment pull through's
Reverse Hyper Machine "WESTSIDE" this was a great training and rehab machine built an patent by the great Powerlifting Coach at WestSide Barbell Louie Simmons. Awesome machine and use it all the time!
70lbsx20repsx4sets today I use less weight and focus on just stretching the lower back erectors and taking it easy. Back will tighten up quick!
Abs Machine Crunches
90 reps off a machine with feet on the floor then up in the air and holding the back of the head support and doing them again with feet on the floor and in the air.

Today was a mini meet day. Today I went down to a local Detroit Supplement store and the cool thing is they have a nice old school set up gym. not huge but a very nice size supplement store an gym. Detroit Bodybuilding Company. They are located in Roseville Mi off Gratiot Ave. So they had a old school raw powerlifting meet. Now I love powerlifting and why not go down and lift with these young lifters plus give them help an support.
So squat was belt an knee wraps, wrist wraps for bench, and belt for deadlift.
I just did squats and deadlifts Friday so I was a little hesitant to go heavy. But when I started warming up and as the warm ups went along i could feel my knee was sore a little but i could handle some weight today. I love competing and just wanted to get the young lifters pumped.
so here was my day
total:1565 226 body weight
Deadlift has never been my lift but after a long day still was able to pull 500 and I was pretty sore in my lower back and knee. Happy with the squat. Felt I left more in the tank, an bench always goes well for me its my strong lift.
But to see these young lifters face and how inspired they were made my day. If I can turn on a group of young and not so young lifters to enjoy lifting and want to compete, I have done my mission. Its the best feeling in the world.

Well I decided to Enter a local APF Detroit Barbell Spring Spectacular this Saturday. My current body weight is 226 and I have started to drop carbs after 6pm and water load so I can make the 220lb class.
I would like to thanks LG Science,Triple X Powerlifting OverKill Strength Equipment and Rick Brewer of House of Pain. But first my great Family and God. I'm happy I can live a dream everyday of my life.
I will be looking at #710,730,750 attempts at 220lb class the APF Mi State Record was mine at #675 it is held now with #725 by Tim Hensley Of Detroit Barbell who will be there competing.
05-22-2011, 07:31 PM
Well the meet went great! I broke the Michigan APF #220 bench press record again with a #727@217.
One 1st place and Best Lifter in a very Stacked #220 class John Zemmin,Tim Hensley, Tommy Westhoff,Eric Decaires. all top 30, 220 lifters in the World.
05-23-2011, 11:22 PM
