    MDpwrlifter's Powerlifting/Bodybuilding Log


    Hey guys, figured I'd keep track of my workouts once again with this log, as I did once before on "another' website. I'm 18 and weigh in the upper 150's, and plan to compete in the IPA and/or IPF for a state record in the 148lb. class. I've been serious about some sort of competition for a while, and figured it's time to get my ass in gear. Until I am of age, I'll be competing in the 18-20 y/o class (Called the junior class, I believe) with hopes of achieving some sort of esteemed total, and possibly achieve record lifts. I've been through a number of training routines since I began weight training (a few years ago) and I've been sporadic with watching calories and assuring I am eating enough. That all, is about to change. I am forcing myself to be consistent with my diet, as well as in the gym. I came across a few good training routines (5/3/1 and Westside Barbell) which I have become very fond of. The chance to increase weight lifted at a light bodyweight gives me a reason to tell all of the "haters" off. But for right now, I haven't done any competition sports in years, and this will be great introduction to get the competitive juices flowing. Enough rambling, here are current stats:

    5'8"
    ~156lbs.
    Bench-225
    Squat-315
    Deadlift-355

    **Haven't had a one rep max day in a good while, so this is my best to date**

    Daily Caloric Goals- 4000 calories, not too strict on fat and carbs, just want enough protein.

    I am on a Westside Barbell routine, utilizing the conjugation method in conjunction with max effort and dynamic effort days. My goal is to break one of the Maryland State records under the IPF and/or IPA, and achieve a 1000+lb total. Let's roll.

    I hope everybody thinks i'm crazy, because you cannot be a sane person and go through the type of pain i am willing to put myself through to be where i want to be, Once I completely win the war between my mind and body, my reign will begin. ~Me

    I just bought a pair of EFS short light and average bands. I'm so excited to add these into my training to work on my bar speed.

    Yes I use chains on bench and bands on box squats. I only have two sets of bands but I love them and hope to get more soon.

    Max Effort Lower Body 8/9/2011


    Max Effort Lower Body


    Front Squats, work up to max, 185x3, 225x1 (PR)

    Glute Ham Raise Machine 3x7

    Pullthroughs 3x8-10 reps

    DB Rows, 125lb db, 3x5-7

    Hammer Curls 3x10-12 reps

    ***Notes***
    Felt pretty good, was impressed with myself on front squats. The rest of the workout was great, always look forward to dumbbell rows. Diet was pretty solid today, enough cals and protein in. I really don't enjoy having to eat this much, as I have a bad stomach, but the thought of progressing sounds nice. In other news, I was watching a report on CBS by Scott Pelley, who was reporting from Somalia. The refugees in the camp and those entering were severely malnourished, and it got me thinking. I'm really lucky to have what I have and be given the chance to even pick up a hobby like bodybuilding or powerlifting. I'm not trying to preach to anyone, it was just a sight to see people who don't even have the basic needs of life. I am thankful for what I have every day, and to be able to pursue my goals without such a strain on the mind and body as these people are enduring.

    sorry I didn't get to post thursday's lift! It will be up here in minutes! In regards to today, I had plumbing work to do all hours that my gym was open 8am-530pm, so I reluctantly missed a workout. I will probably go tomorrow and switch up my days, or just go on three days or something. I am not sure.

    Max Effort Upper Body 8/11/2011


    Max Effort Upper Body


    Floor Press, Dumbbells for warm ups including 85's for 5

    Barbell with 185 for 3 sets of 5 reps

    Rope Pressdown and Skull Crushers 3 sets, 5-7 reps

    Thick Bar Barbell Shoulder Press 135 3 sets 5 reps

    Facepulls 3 sets of 10

    ***Notes***
    Felt pretty good for doing floor presses for the first time, was a bit nervous about dropping the weights as I don't have a spotter. I am getting pretty damn hungry to do this meet and have competition once again.

    Today was a special exception, I had to help out a good friend who had a plumbing disaster haha. Believe me, I HATE missing lifting days, but I will make it up somehow! I love to train way too much to give up.

    Reverse Bench Rows 90lb EZ Bar 3x10

    ***Notes***
    Went very well, the speed work definitely needs improvement and focus, bench is probably my weakest exercise. Otherwise, I tried reverse bench rows for the first time, they seemed pretty decent. I like facepulls just as much. Diet was on point today with plenty of protein and cals. Hopefully if I am indeed gaining weight, I do not gain too much for February or August '12 comps that I plan on competing in..
