  1. 14 weeks out, 1st Raw Meet.


    Portland Texas , March 10 2013...Gotta get ready, log to keep track of what I am doing and to improve. Training with Team, trying to get at least 800+ total for the meet and go for experience.

    Totals as of now:

    -Wide Stance Squat 235x1
    -Sumo Deadlift 315x1
    -Bench: 195x1 Paused, 200x1 TNG

    Total: 745 lbs
    Goal (Realistic...): 790~
    Goal (Ideal): 800+

    Training of today after weeks of break from wrist injury:

    Squat, narrow, chains and pause at the bottom.

    -Barx5
    -95x5
    -135x5

    Chains on:

    Weight as of this morning:145.6

    -155x1

    Jerk:

  4. Thank you fellas , just trying to not let my team down...we got a 132 junior national raw champ...he totaled around 1010? Something around that...yet he kinda just recently slipped a disc due to bad squat form...so I got a chance of not looking that much like a chump in his division. Point is to get experience out of it, and it's my first prep run for anything...should be fun

  6. I don't think I was blessed genetically...my coach is the boss of the team and one of the best friends someone could ask for...he has huge ass legs, dude pulled 595 raw at 177 at nationals and won thanks to it. Since I started training with him my dead went from 275~ to 315 , squat from a sad 185 to 235 , bench went up from 185 to 200 TnG...

    I believe something, I might not be genetically blessed...but I stick through it and fight for it, i started strength training around april-may after a long ass cut haha...and well now I have big plans for myself in the next years, I've made a commitment to myself to stay natty and raw for now, lifting gear might come later, as far as AAS...I don't think I'll go down that path anytime soon haha

  7. If you squat wide in competition, why are you training narrow?

    Also, chain use why?

    Better at sumo or conventional?

    Better at sumo.

    Chains specially for the squat and bench since I tend to pause in the middle of the motion and using them from time to time (3 weeks on and some time off) helps for me, noticed this specially on bench and squat.

    Narrow because I had done around 6 weeks of Wide stance, and the idea is to switch out every 3 weeks to sorta avoid deloading. Sort of a "westside" idea of choosing different lifts from the ME pool.

    At your level, I'd stick to one stance and go with it, no need to alter stances and I doubt it will achieve the result you're looking for anyways.

  19. Woke up today, wrist swollen hurting on the left side...minor, real minor, pain yet still applied some icy hot and patched it up real right. Should be fine for tomorrows session and saturdays.

    Todays morning weight: 143.6 on the nude post bathroom business.
    Target weight: 132 by week 14, should keep weight for now...will adjust carb intake to maintain for now.


    Notes to check upon the weekend:
    Maintenance level has been unknown for a while since I had been playing it by ear around the 2500-2600 ballpark with all the compounds and the Track workouts (strides, sprints and the like)...Yet weight had gone up to 149 and strength too...after my break from my wrist I came back actually stronger and weighted less. Mirror-o-meter tells a different story, I look like a lost a bit of mass and gained a bit of fat...not sure how since strength is higher and speed too...could be I am learning to perform the movements better or that I am recruiting more fibers into them. Will drain some water this weeks for a bit to see if it is just water weight, due to the sudden loss in the past week, I am a bit at a loss, but today looking actually more like my usual body comp...

    Rest-Exam day:
    -30 min real light leisure jog this morning...enjoying the nice cold morning (well not really cold...semi cool @ around 55 degrees haha)
    -Exam at 7 and getting out ASAP to hit the sack for tomorrow is Olympic lifts day...no powercleans tomorrow at all, can't risk major injury in the wrist and it is still iffy since the past powerclean incident...

  20. Bit later training, slept up a bit more because I had an exam at night...got out late. Workout felt good nonetheless.

    Clean Pulls:

    From the hang above the knee

    -155x4
    -155x4
    -185x4
    -175x4 (previous set felt bad)

    Hang below the knee

    -165x4
    -165x4
    -185x4
    -185x4

    From the ground:

    -135x4
    -155x4
    -185x4
    -190x2
    -190x2

    Jerk (catching up from some stuff I had missed earlier this week...)

    -115x4
    -125x4
    -125x4
    -135x2
    -135x2
    -135x2
    -135x2
    -135x2

    They were going up really REALLY smoothly and easy, but it was just light work to get some push in there...Idk if I'll be able to make it tomorrow to the gym. Final project due monday.

    Weight this morning: 143.6
    Target comp weight: 132

    Exactly 14 weeks out today (was 14 weeks and some days when log started). Gotta step it up.

  21. The main oly movements, no reason to go above 3 reps. It's a power movement, and should remain in the 1-3 rep range.

    Reasoning for breaking up the clean pulls the way you did?

    Oh ok , will try to keep em lower reps then, thanks bro!

    Well, thing is...from the ground it's easier, you have more power...thought about making it a little bit harder and start from the hang and drop until the ground. I'm assuming it wasn't a good idea...

    I don't see a point to it. You're new to the movements, train the full movements. Either do clean pulls from the floor, or high pulls. Not a lot of variations of each.

  24. Good luck man. I have been toying around with the idea of hitting a Powerlifting meet next summer or fall if things work out the way I am hoping.

    Crush it.

    I thought I had to also train different parts of it to get good at em :/ I'll try to only do around 10 sets of 2-3 reps next week. Thanks brother.

    I fell in love with this haha...Many people here at my gym think it's stupid and all they care about is crossfit, and physique training without "leg days" (hate that term)...it's fun to be able to lift more than 200lb 6' behemoths in every single lift...I do it for myself, for my own strength to go up...that and the fact I seriously wanna win someday.

    Try it out bro, I'm sure you can win, you are pretty damn strong haha.

    I'd have to see your lifts, but at your level, training the full lift itself will probably be the smartest.

    I'm gonna go up on monday (hopefully) on Sumo...trying to get over 315x1...haven't gone higher, but guessing it will. I'll tape a 3 rep max (around 295-300) and then a single from either max or over max. Sumo is one key thing for me...I am putting my hopes on it getting at least 30-35lbs higher in this 14 weeks.

    Ya I mostly want to do something just because I feel the urge to compete in something. Have no idea how it will go, how my weights would fair, etc. but may have to fully commit to it in 2013.

  29. Hi Celorza,
    Great log so far,
    I'd love to hear what kind of diet and supplementation protocol you are using, to make weight while maintaining your strength.

    Peace

  30. Interesting to say the least.

    I'll be reading along, probably silently, good luck man.

    Always loved the idea of powerlifting and may do it myself some day, when applicable.
