    I wanted to do more work on my off the chest bench, so I decided to try out cambered bar bench for DE. The dude at my gym thought this was a good idea as well. However, I'm not sure how much I like it - I kind of don't. I go really slow even with just the bar because it just feels funny to me, and my forearms are getting completely trashed by this. Now, it feels more like a "forearm workout" soreness than a "something is going really wrong/bad form" soreness, but we'll see. Anyways, won't do DE bench for a while after this. Maybe it'll be better when I get back on the 21st.

    Well, I decided to try something out I haven't done in a long while - hex DL. I did it with the handles facing the floor, so the bar was the same depth as it would be had it been a straightbar DL. Well, I was somewhat humbled by the weight. It really is not at all like a normal deadlift. In fact, as I sit here typing almost 90 minutes after my last attempt I am feeling shin splints from this lift (or possibly something else not recorded in my log). Those sumo DB SLDLs were such a straight pain in the ass, literally, and hamstrings. I then tried to do some heavy sled pulls, but quite frankly I could barely move 90lbs, let alone try and budge 135 (I had set up with 225, got nothing). This is the same guy who did 30 minutes straight of sled pulling 115, so I assume my legs were fried. I went to do reverse hypers instead. I felt pretty tired and my abs were very worked after the reverse hypers, so I called it a day. Bad news is I've been trying to clean bulk, but I noticed from last week (Friday) that my waist is up a good inch and a half. That's not good. That could be some bloating but I have no idea from what, considering I did not feel bloated. It could be from doing abs as well the day before - I know my abs are really distended the day after doing abs. However, I am still a little worried - we'll see.

    Lat really sore/in pain from Monday, stopped here

    Well, this was a very disappointing workout. I had a sore lat from doing something Monday ... it's been sore for about a day and change. My bench basically equated to a 307lb bench at the top ... and it was ass hard. It shouldn't have been so hard, it should have been easier, seeing how before I started powerlifting I had a 315 flat bench, which I achieved in spite of being in tremendous pain. Anyways, got work to do here. Spotter noted I was really good off the chest with the bench but stalled about a fist's length up - since my back is not a problem (though firing with it could be), pretty sure this is a shoulder problem, which makes some sense. I shall start having to hit these with regularity, and I will be either adding them before back work or dropping back work altogether on certain days (of course making it up later). We will see.

I figured out/was told how to use the GHR at my gym, it's different from the one at my old gym, and on this one you do NOT support your knees on the pads; if you let them hang off, it's a world of difference and a lot easier to rep out.

    This was a hard session to come back to. Low on strength, but truly pushed myself on everything. I was surprised how tortuous those close stance high box squats were, but they really were, especially on my upper back. Probably because I destroyed myself doing the rack pulls. Doing some rehab work today, be back later.

    Really happy with today's workout. Nailed a great PR (never had a real PR for floor press, maybe a 185 lol), and all my other work really created a good burn/workout. I whizzed through this workout in about 45 minutes and don't feel taxed, either. I feel that's the Erase Pro, Anabeta Elite, DAA, Endosurge, and carnitines and nutrition being all on point. Also what helps is not moving around heavy weight since I was doing a lot of unilateral stuff.

    I have to watch my middle back right now. I dinked it doing rack pulls the other day, and trying to foam roll it today hurt so bad. But towards the end I did a static stretch on the position of pain and the pain went away. I should have tried some more foam rolling after to see if the pain would be gone while doing that, but I forgot. I'll just foam roll tomorrow again.

    This was the most brutal DE lower day of my life. I don't know what happened, but those speed squats were flying. I actually did my first set of the 185 without a belt, and then I realized I usually put them on for speed work (considering the bar is like 425 at the top). Things took off from there. But once I was done with my 12 sets, I was done. I could have gone home it was so bad. My hams and glutes were demolished. So there was no way on Earth I could do speed pulls, so I did the other stuff instead.

  11. That new band work that those sadistic bastards at elitefts sets my shoulders on FIRE. Holy balls.

    Quite humbling for band stuff.

    I've been doing some pull-aparts for a while now, so a lot of the overhand stuff isn't bad for me. But I never thought about doing it with a supinated grip as well. That hits things in a brand new way!

    Ridiculous soreness in the legs, wobble in the hips. Guess I had a good workout! On the 285, and actually on the 255 with the good mornings, I had a problem with the bar rolling off over my head. I am pretty sure this is indicative of doing something wrong, possibly including setting the pins too low. Will try with them a pin higher next time. But yeah, good session. Might do a squat next week before doing pulling work again.

    Well, this was a great lesson in benching that I could never have learned during my speed bench session. A trainer at my gym spotted me with 315 and noticed I wasn't properly loading my upper back with the bench, I hesitated and held the bar out too long after unracking, and I didn't take enough air in before unracking (so normally I would take an extra breath after unracking). I made some corrections, gripped the bar and really pushed myself into the bench to set up, then unracked and benched, quickly, and things improved a lot each time. By my 5th single the bar flew after touching the board.

  15. Too tired to go into gym Thursday. Got back really late. Yesterday, I got back home around 8pm as well, and was fairly tired. Got out the tub of Muscle Marinade I've been hiding. Didn't hit like a freight train, but I sure as hell woke up!

    Worked up to a max of sorts instead of a traditional DE day. This was a very helpful session, and I got to really train my squat form which has recently gone to ****. Instead of squatting, I've been going down first, then back. I know it sounds like I'm making excuses, but a small part of this has to do with me having forgotten how it's like to squat with a safety bar squat. Towards the end I finally got my form down, although my heaviest set looked pretty ugly but not totally unlike a squat. After, I did GHRs to really destroy the legs, and did some upper back work.

    Burnt out with these, couldn't hold on to them (no straps)

    Pretty good session today. Was sweating like a mother. Unfortunately I had to use a ghetto bench for my benching today, so I couldn't practice some of the things I learned on my last ME day today, mostly because I absolutely couldn't get my feet behind me like normal (bench was too low to the ground). It was fast but not flying like it could have. Those CGBP were really quite beautiful. The form on them was spectacular. I am experiencing a slight change in my bench form from having done it Westside style, and it's starting to show. If I can really nail the tempo I think I will have found my groove on it.

    Did these piston style. It was the most god-awful thing I've ever done. Spread legs at bottom to increase ROM without rounding back. Experienced no tingling/itching, therefore did not engage lower back (great)
    I did not work up to a 6 rep max as I had no spotter for this. I have failed the leg press in the past and was unable to rescue myself by pushing up on my knees. Thus I just did a 12 rep max.

    I wanted to do an extra gym session yesterday, but I slept nearly nothing Monday night. This happens with really intense leg workouts. I also had some concerns in my mind related to issues in my life (nothing bad per se), so I think the stress woke me up at 430am. When I got back from work around 6 last night, I just went to bed and slept until 8am this morning. I'll just do some simple cardio today instead of my ME upper, and I'll move ME upper to Thursday. I have classes now Wednesday evenings until late October, so I may consider shifting my whole schedule by a day for ease.

    140-12,11

    Well, I found out that DE lower days are a great decongestant, lol. Retard amounts of mucus was flying out of my nose. My shirt is just drenched in it, lol. Anyways, felt good afterwards. My legs feel it the most as they're pretty fried. My upper back feels pretty worked, too, which is fantastic. Those speed sumo pulls are pretty rough. I think I need to widen my grip, because at the top my hands are being smooshed by my thighs, which I feel with heavy weight would cut off circulation and would make me drop the weight. I'll ask someone who would know better. Otherwise, a good session.

    7x10 band circuit followed by 2x10 med ball slams

    INCLINE DB PRESS

    60-10
    75-8
    85-8
    95-2 <-- left arm simply giving up
    95-6,6,5
    Kept forcing my arm out/flaring elbow while digging my shoulder blade in, fixed the problem.

    EZ BAR FRENCH PRESS
    92.5-11,11,8,7

    DOUBLE PYRAMID LATERAL RAISES
    (15-12
    20-10
    25-8
    30-6) x 2
    30 sec between sets, 90 second between pyramid sets

    LAT PULLDOWNS
    180-8
    200-8,8,7

    Well, this was a needed session. One thing that was really great that I got out of it was that I actually have been doing ez bar french presses wrong this whole time. If I retract my shoulder blades hard, and instead of starting with the bar up in the air I start with it on my chest to pinch my shoulder blades even more, then press up, then I put less stress on shoulders and concentrate it all on the triceps. It was a great pump.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

  25. Forgot to mention, I had been taking Ragnarok for the whole summer (since April? May?). I ran out on 9/09, so since that day I went back to Muscle Marinade. Strangely not getting that honed-in/tunnel-vision feeling from DMAA, but definitely feel very driven at the gym. Missed this stuff.

    EXTRA LOWER

    REVERSE HYPER INTERVALS (each set done on the minute)
    Reps: 15,15,12,11,11,10,8,10,11,12

    AB WORK

    I had a ridiculous lower back pump during and after finishing these reverse hypers. Once I finished my session, I foam rolled my back and hips. I felt so much better afterwards, and as I write this I feel almost fine. Tomorrow we'll see how things feel. Hopefully not too raw considering I'm doing some max benching.

    Great session. I'm glad I nailed the incline press from pins. The thing went up without issue. I might have been able to get away trying for a heavier weight, but I decided to just do a triple instead with a lower weight. I didn't know if 215 would be do-able, but I did it without issue. I was strong today. JM presses were really nice, really got the form down. What was hilarious was 175 first set was really good but super hard, while the second set I couldn't even get the first rep with good form. After second rep things were really out the window, so when I finished the third rep it was time to rack and move on. Went to pushdowns just to hit the rest of the muscles in the triceps I missed with JM presses. Finished with shoulders and hammers. I'll do some back and rear delts tomorrow with maybe some tri work.
