Sean's Powerlifting Journey

  1. At the risk of sounding like an idiot...

    I think there's some efficacy in the methods prescribed in the Cube, and I think Lilly is an incredibly strong and gifted lifter.

    That said, I think the guy is a jackass. I think the weird, almost cultish devotion to everything he says is ridiculous, and I think the "hardcore" attitude he presents is...well...fu(king dumb. I'm so tired of the "I'm the best because I have sacrificed everything to be it" mantra. I find it shallow, and I feel sorry for the regular dudes who latch onto that.

    Sorry, Sean. I'll edit/delete if you like.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

    Even if you tell me its worth it, I still won't.

    That's too much for an ebook.

    And I hate ebooks.

    Lol. Three ebooks and a 90 minute video of Brandon Lilly's seminar in Chicago. I really hope there's some nuts and bolts to this one, or I'm going to look like a fool in front of all of you guys. I agree with the sentiments on the Cube sheep. It's like one day someone asked Brandon a percentage and to get them off his back, he said "I don't go by percentages, I just ****ing lift." And now if someone wants to employ percentages, they're Westside and Westside is evil. Well, conjugate works, and I know what I'm running for my upcoming geared meet, and you can bet I'm going to stick with conjugate when I go back to raw stuff.

    One is 365Strong, one is eating (I certainly don't care about food quality, but I'll bite HAR HAR HAR), and think like a powerlifter is the third. I have thinking like a powerlifter down. I shave my head but not my face, I get fat and bloated, and I'm almost always winded. Then there's a video called "mobilize like a weightlifter" with Ryan Brown (he's another very good mobility and movement guy who's on with Juggernaut), and apparently a video of Jon Anderson, and the seminar video.

    Information overload.

  11. I was clued in to the money grab when I spent the money to have him "design" a program, only to find out he was sending the same "custom" program to every sucker that sent him money.

    That's shady as hell IMHO.

    Agreed. When you first brought it up, it was hard to believe the guy would never have thought "What happens if two guys that know each other both sign up for a program?"

    With all of his philosophical soliloquies and love for Chuck Palahniuk I think ^THAT^ is his life's philosophy.

    Tried the cube for a little when Robbie was doing it. I didn't like it that much. Benching 2x a week was not the best on my shoulder, 1 week rest or about that between bench sessions is much better for me.

    I like how Lilly is all about getting America stronger and more competitive but the guy seems like a dick.

    Maybe the cube would be. More beneficial for me once I get my proven numbers in dec after my first meet. But for now I'm happy as hell with 5/3/1

  18. Sean, I can give you a more detailed cut plan with CHO/sodium/water manipulation I've repeatedly used if you want.

    I guess it depends on what u use it for. Wife n I actually share one just to keep in touch with some fam n friends. Barely go on it or update it, but i find it convenient to see what people up to that u don't get a chance to see much due to distance

    That's the main reason I have it. Share family pics and whatnot.

  26. 365 strong looks a little pricey


    I would like to read it though. Even if not for a training style, just due to the fact I like Brandon Lilly and what he brings to the table being 12th best all time and getting stronger.

    Edit: no fb either, and nice sexy briefs man(no homo?) lol

    "Jackie Treehorn treats objects like woman man."

  27. Massage is done.

    She gives me an anatomy lesson then makes me get into all the positions before she works on it.

    Right above my femor was ungodly tight. Also, I thought my hip flexors were in good shape until she drove her elbow into spots Ive never bothered touching. It was excruciating.

    Back pain is gone and external rotation is back.

    Well spent $25

    Can't beat that. Gotta be nice to learn from someone who REALLY knows how to do that stuff.
