    Been silently lurking. Good session, bud.
    Ive just been eating to much is all. I didnt bloat for this. Dial food back and i should be right on track. It is frustrating though. Going raw after this for a meet will be a much welcomed change of pace. Thanks man!


  2. 11/26/14-me bench
    Bench in metal jack shirt, size smaller, 54 arm 52 chest
    365x1
    405x1
    455x1
    495x1
    525x1
    545x1, none of these touched but the 545 was about an inch and a half away. Next week ill take 575 for a ride to touch. Should be about right.
    Floor press rack lockouts
    315x5
    365x5
    405x5 huge pr
    Low incline chest supported db rows
    95X2x10/3x8
    Side raises/unilateral micro band face pulls/db hammer curls
    20x12/12/30x10 3 sets
    Banded straight bar pushdowns
    2 lightsx20 drop to 1 lightx20, 2 sets
    Notes: adam driggers sent all his metal gear to brian to give to the team. I own a metal jack 56 arm 54 chest and driggers had a 54 arm 52 chest that fit like a glove. I already know this shirt and groove so i decided to use it. Loved it. So much pop. No longer worried about benching. Night and day. I switched my typical de assistance work to me day to give my shoulders more priority when im fresh and i killed a 40lb rack lockout pr. Seems it was a smart change so far. 4 weeks out.

    Hopefully something not to sad. Im deff not as good as raw lifting as equipped. Best raw lifts are 515(wrapped)/345/555

  7. 11/29/14-Squat
    Training partners flaked and didnt tell me so i once again show up and no one is at the gym. No longer my training partners, period. I could have.gone earlier and had plenty of help but waited to train with them. So didnt not get to go opener, second reverse mini, third reverse light like i was suppose to.
    Ssb squat w/ chains in briefs
    515+120Lbs chainx1
    Back down raw
    245+120Lbs chainx2x5
    Step ups
    55X3x10
    Reverse hypers w/ pause at top
    90X10
    115x2x10
    Standing cable crunches
    120x10
    135x10
    150x2x10
    105X12
    Notes: maxed out at what it took to hit depth and added chain till 100%. Just tried to keep the cns loaded. Pissed.

  8. 11/30/14-de bench
    De floor press w/ chains, 3 grips
    185+40lbs chainx9x3 close, comp, wide grips, 3 each
    Sohp
    130x6
    150x6
    160x6
    Dips
    Bwx2x15
    Pull-ups
    Bwx8/8/7, very slow to make sure i didnt hurt my lat
    Seated close neutral grip rows
    150x2x12
    Tate press
    30x4x15
    Mini band pullapart complex w/ extra overhand/underhand sets at end
    2 sets 10 reps each way.
    Notes: good session, finally getting more balance and can handle multiple grips on bench, need to push my sohp back up.

  9. 12/01/14-deadlift
    Deadlift in titan briefs and metal ace suit
    Opener-575x1
    Second reverse mini-625x1
    Third reverse light-655x1
    Elevated ghrs
    Bwx2x8
    Minix2x8
    2 minisx7
    Landmines
    45x20
    55x2x20
    Gpp:walking with sled. 45lbs on sled. Forward, backward, and side to side 2 sets none stop until all variations were complete.
    Notes: last heavy deadlift day. My gear is tight, hard to get the right spot to pull. May leave the briefs out the suit is so tight. Will have to see how my weights doing meet day. Dialed the assistance intensity back some. Subbed gpp for conditioning to help with recovery. Feeling confident.

  10. 12/02/14-me bench
    Bench in metal jack
    585 miss
    615 miss, got some tip from brian
    545, touch but miss
    545, killed it. I will open around this. Finally.
    Db incline with mini behind back
    50x10
    65x10,8
    Wide fat bar neutral grip rows
    135x3x20
    Rolling tri ext
    25x4x15
    Spud strap facepulls, side raises, hammer curls
    45X12/15x15/20x15, 2 sets
    Notes: assistance was just pump stuff to get blood in me. I was struggling in the shirt like always. Benched shirted up for an hr and a half straight. I had to touch today. I was keeping to flared and it was making touching near impossible. Brian gave me some good tip and tucking and bellying up. Touched 545 pretty well but didnt get my elbows under me. I was shot but retried it and just slammed it down and tucked and heard press and just slammed my elbows out and flared and it was an easy lift. This made my whole training cycle lol.

  11. Congrats!

  12. Now we're talking! Now you have something to go off of.

    De bench w/ chain done CAT style
    255X3
    205+40Lbs chainx8X3, moved grip out a finger on set 6 just to see how it felt. Felt fine. Would need to me that way and see how i like it.
    Sohp
    155X6
    175X6
    185x6, finally back up at this weight. Hope this continues to move before stalling.
    Dips
    Bwx2x12
    Wide neutral grip pulldowns, really focusing on downward scapular rotation. Something i struggle with on pullups so im hoping building pulldowns will build my insertions enough to do this on pullups.
    135X10
    150x10,8
    Avg band catback pulldowns
    2x15
    Incline tate press
    35x5x12
    Mini band pullapart complex w/ extra overhand/underhand sets at end

    Notes: beat up but managed a good and productive day anyways.

  18. 12/8/14-deadlift deload
    De raw squat w/ light bands

    55x2x20
    Hip adduction/abduction
    30x10/20x10
    Gpp: backward sled drag w/ 45lbs, 3 laps
    Notes: really found my groove raw squatting, took me a sec to find my groove pulling. Dan green style works best for me sumo. Rest was fluff and buff for important areas.

    Stephen agreed to being there, thanks for offering man!

  21. 12/9/14-deload bench
    Bench w/ shoulder saver
    275x5
    Moved grip in
    185x10
    Remove shoulder saver grip still in
    185x6
    Neutral grip Flat db press w/ mini band
    65+bandx3x8, i suck at db presses and hate them
    Swiss bar jm press
    135x3x5
    Low incline chest supported db rows
    90x5x10
    V bar pushdowns/mini band facepulls/side raises/db hammer curls
    45x20/12/15x15/30x10, 3 sets.
    Notes: so i feel much better with the closer grip, i will do my raw benching there from now on. I am a tricep bencher anyways. Ive also increased my tricep volume the last few weeks. And after this meet will continue to keep it high, thanks to herder (after reading your log). The banded db presses feel better then regular and ill likely push them slowly with a neutral grip to even out imbalances and build my tris without overdoing extension movements and partial range stuff (save elbows and keep a better control on intensity zones).

  22. I am loving life with the ramped up triceps volume, homie. Can't wait to see how it translates to my EQ bench.

  24. One of the guys I train with used to be a bench only guy and he swears by close grip bench he almost exclusively trains his bench that way

    Its about 70% of my target at the meet, it didnt quite feel like a deload myself, but much lighter than 730-800 lol. Brian schwabs training is aggressive.
