    Lifting Heavy every single day - LOG


    SO, here is the start of my log. I will tell you everything. All inside details. i want to give knowledge and let other people know about my training methods and how i go about things. Im not saying this is going to work out perfect. But i am testing my own theories out. I want to share my success OR just plain failure (for a program, not forever) with you guys and just really show people that there is more out there other than just a 4 or 5 day split. Or a 3 day so called "strength program"

    FIRST OFF: My theory is that the more you lift, and the more frequent you lift, the more better and stronger your body will be with that movement. If you lift light, you will be better with light weights. If you lift heavy you body will adapt and get stronger by lifting those heavy weights. I believe strength is mostly neural and recruiting motor units. If your lifting heavy and frequently with the main compound exercises, you strength will shoot up in the quickest and fastest way possible. So enough of what i think. Here is what i will be doing for who knows how long. It could be 1 week. Or 1 month. But i will edit my programs and how they go on this first post. Im starting with program 1. If i continue to progress, i will continue to do it. If i fail to progress, i will change it. KEEP ME MOTIVATED



    PROGRAM #1 Is listed Below. Follow my journey!

    ______________________________ ______________________________ _
    GUYS I THINK THIS IS THE PROGRAM IM GONNA DO. LET ME KNOW WHAT YOU THINK. IM THINKING THIS IS THE ONE.

    Thing is, im not sure if 93% is to much or not enough. Granted the other exercises are going to help my squat like you guys said because it will improve my weaknesses. But should i increase or decrease the squat percentage. Maybe go down to 90% or up to 95% (which i think is to much..95% for 5 days straight is imo, reason is because of all the assistance work)

    So your gonna squat and deadlift heavy triples everyday? with like no assistence work and expect to get stronger at them? Do you even know how the strongest in the world got to where they are? By not doing this, by doing special assistence lifts that bring up whatever is holding THEM back from being stronger, unless you have technique issues preforming the same lifts all the time wont result in better strength gains. Also if your gonna do this at least follow an olympic type program with REAL programming.

    I expected these type of posts. BTW, let me know... How much do you think i can climb? I weight 180 btw. How far do you think i can take my triples to? (for Squat and Deads) I just want an honest opinion. And don't take this as a competition. I want your honest opinion. Ready set GO!

    Im just curious where you got the idea to do this? And honestly seeing as if your form is in check, not far maybe 5lbs if your lucky. But your gonna do this everyday with no off days your gonna put a beating on your cns system. And ull most likely start going backward very fast. I suggest you read the westside book of methods book to learn. Also me and you would never have a competition, unless your at a meet im at in the same weight class.

    Im not talking about a competition. Im talking about how far do you think (with my current numbers in program #1, do you think i can take my sets of 3 to? I want to get your opinion on when i will stall,ect.. I will get videos up of me blasting through 405 on the squat and 415 on the deadlift. Blast my CNS? what is this? Fairy world? Grow a set of nuts and lift. I feel like crap all the time. <Matter of fact, i should just go down to my basement and lift with no sleep and put a video up so you can see. Im not trying to be mean, but this is what im doing. And i should just accept the fact that no one will take me seriously until i prove you guys wrong. Im not sure if it is going to work but we will surely find out in literally 2 weeks.

    Assuming your first numbers posted are MAX triples and that is the most you could possible do on that day then you wont get far. There will most likely be a boost in numbers before your cns tanks. Then things will go backwards. I suggested you some text that talks about these very things, nonlinear conjugate training. Grow a pair? Look your numbers arnt all impressive and we all train when we doing feel 100 percent, this does not make you hardcore. Bad programming does not make you hardcore, if you make strength gains great. Maybe you shoulda looked up smolve or something. And please post videos, to make sure your form is on point so this is a true test of whether or not max triples day in and day out will produce strength gains in 3 movements with no assistence work.

    Yikes. Even on gear, this is a really really really bad idea. Did I forget to say this is a really bad idea? Maybe you think you are a god and not a human with human limitations lol

    Have fun!

    Alright. im gonna try it. btw, what are your numbers? and some videos? Also, It is a very heavy 3 rep lift. Im not going to take a weight lifting by myself and risk failing every time. but, its going to be heavy to do so, and risk injury. It going to be hard. Just stick with me man.

    I admire your poassion I really do but you need rest to grow.You must know that.

    But the best olympic lifters in China lift everyday for hours,get stronger ect so it can be done.I would say though make sure you are warming up thoroughly,taking care of your joints,watch those knees also and are you including any upper body work or is it jsut squats and deads?

    Lifting heavy will also train your muscles to slow down. The slower you become, the harder it will be to get through that sticking point. That's why power lifters have speed days to offset the maximum effort days. If you wanna be fast you train fast, like sprinters, they don't jog to get faster!! Boxers hit a heavy bag AND adored bag.

    Most important of all... Power=speed x strength !!!! That is the scientific equation for power in layman's terms.

    Your squat technique isn't too bad, but I can already tell that you need to increase your posterior chain and ab strength. Your deadlift looks really bad, though. The movement is not smooth and your ass pops up way too quickly. It also looks like your shoulders are in front of the bar at the beginning of the movement and it's throwing off your technique to where you're using predominantly upper back.

    As to the program itself, it makes absolutely zero sense to do triples on both squats and deadlifts every week much less the same session. You're only 19 and have soooo much that you need to learn about programming, addressing weak areas, and, most importantly, technique.

    That first sentence is absolutely not true at all. You cannot lift a heavy weight slow. The dynamic effort is to assist with force development and technique, but it is not to offset the ME. The most power in terms of wattage comes from using weights in the 30-60% of 1RM range, which is roughly what is used in the conjugate method.

    My form is fine. I might not be perfect. But im good with the deadlift training my lower back and the squat training my legs more. Im not curving my lumbar spine. My joints are healthy. Its just a different way than you like. My core is solid. I don't think its strong as hell. But its deff. good. Say what you want. But i might even go down and start doing squat twice a day instead of one. I mean like the guy said above. The Chinese lift all day. I don't see why i can't do the same. BOOM! Ill keep you updated. And yes, The more i lift the faster i become. You cannot lift a heavy weight fast. If you can max dead 200 and i can max dead 500. Im going to lift 150lb way faster than you could. its a basic principal.


    But anyways, im making progress so why you guys hating? just wondering..

    Well, right now i don't have anyone to coach me. But if i ever did, i know i would thrive. I just need to find the right place. Im willing to sacrifice anything to get where i want to be. But like you said, ive never been taught by anyone but myself. Im just going to do what i do, and continue. If i stall or something, i will change things up. But for now, i feel fine.

But i might even go down and start doing squat twice a day instead of one. I mean like the guy said above. The Chinese lift all day. I don't see why i can't do the same. BOOM! Ill keep you updated. And yes, The more i lift the faster i become. You cannot lift a heavy weight fast. If you can max dead 200 and i can max dead 500. Im going to lift 150lb way faster than you could. its a basic principal.


    But anyways, im making progress so why you guys hating? just wondering..
    I'm not hating.I'm just worried that you might hurt yourself.I'm nearly 23 now and I injured myself when I was 19.Tore my lower lumbar and herniated my l1-l2 disk.Kept me from lifting for nearly 3 months.That was all because of me squatting and DL'ing 4 days a week.I shudder to think how much stress your placing doing it 7 days.

    But like I said it can be done for professional lifters.Go onto the stronglifts forums and people will advise you so much better than we can on here....perhaps

    2/13/12: SECOND SESSION: Squat only.

    Im back already. That was a lot tougher simply because my back was more fatigued than normal. If you watch closely my back starts to tip a bit at the second and third reps. I think it was stupid to go to 415x3 but whatever. I GOT IT! im so pumped. I am now NO MATTER HOW MANY SESSIONS I DO (no more than 1 for Deads. No more than 2 for squats per day) will no longer go up more than 10lbs per day. Simply because i think if i try to go up to far, i will end up injuring myself. So ill take you guys advice on the injury part.

    Hopefully most of you people are subscribed to this thread. I would love to have you guys help me out along the way,,and hey... if i end up hitting my goal of 455x3 i will help you guys out. Tell you everything i did, and it will be a great success story for me. I can't wait for tomorrow morning!

    VIDEO: Squat 415x3

    Rodja I have to disagree with u, when u lift maximal weight it goes up slower then light weight. If u never have a speed day u will get slower. U need speed to bust through the sticking point!

    Your technique needs a lot of work. Your upper back starts to round, your core is not strong enough, and you need hamstring and glute work. Set aside your desire for higher numbers and learn how to properly do the lift. Part of your problem is your approach: they are movements and you should be trained as such. To work the squat solely as a means to train legs and the deadlift just to train the erectors is going to limit your numbers.

    Speed day according to westside barbell is 50-60% of maximal weight plus accommodating resistance in a pendulum wave.

    The weight goes up slower, but that does not mean you are lifting the weight slowly. Think of a jump as an example: you can't try to jump slowly if you're attempting to hit a new PR. The same principle applies to a ME.

    For the raw lifter, many of the principles employed by Westside do not apply (e.g. accommodating resistance for every DE). The speed day for Westside varies from 40-50% for bench and 50-60% for squatting. The 30% number comes from studies measuring power output in terms of wattage. Believe it or not, Westside is not the be all, end all of strength training. I'm by no means saying it's crap, but it is incomplete.

    I understand i need work in other areas and its going to limit me if i don't train things like GHR, ect.. but for now im working for what i have. And to be honest. If i do get to 450 what will you say.. that im weak or something? Im just going to do this. Ill see how it works out.

    And if speed becomes an issue for real, i can add a couple sets of 3 with like 225 at the end to do that. But for now, im good with whats going on.

    Like i said, i agree with you, but the squat deadlift and bench are 3 compound exercises. If i work on GHR only for i month my Squat (which has the most carryover) is not going to go up. It might, and paired with the GHR it might. But the program i am doing right now is different from anything else. Tomorrow im going to keep moving up. Maybe i will fail one of these times. who knows. Im just hoping for the best.

    That's true your muscles have to contract extremely hard for maximal weight, but u also don't try to jump with maximal weight. Jumping is plyometric, ur muscles are relaxed then forced to contract extremely hard. Same with speed bench. The goal being to shorten the amortization phase of the lift. This is what speed work does.

    What I will say is that you're being young and stupid. You can do good mornings, stiff legged deads, BB lunges, front squats, and other lifts to address your weak spots.

    Should i add good mornings at the end of each day instead of suitcase deads? Would that help. And lunges are crap. I don't believe in them. I trained them singly and they weakened my squat (in the past) and i felt like a stick legged boy. Front squats are good. I should throw those in maybe on the 2nd part of the day. SLD are good, but my deads are already like that if you watch the video. I know my form isn't perfect but everything is in lin enough so injury will not happen. sure i might not be making the best LONG term choices, but if i can eventually squat/deadlift 450 for reps theres really nothing else to talk about imo. i would be ecstatic.

    I would agree, the most important thing in my workouts is week point training. Lower body I work my posterior chain hard

    GHR is an assistance lift and should be treated as such. No person in their right mind is going to recommend solely working on them. Honestly, there is very little design and programming in your template.

    It's not about the weight; it is about increasing the rate of force development and bar speed.

    The jumping was an example of how you still have to have maximal contraction and speed even with a ME. Although it is not weighted, the same principles apply to a maximal high jump as they do to a squat.
