    I puked after the passes, then after the ladder.

    Lift, I can do. Be lean & conditioned...I've got a LONG ways to go.

    Swanson-Cube Method to July Comp


    Cube W1 D2 E Bench

    BENCH PRESS
    Warm up-bar, 135, 185, 205 x infinity

    225x3x8

    I had to recalculate these, used 10# too much last week so essentially I'm dumb. I really focused on 2 things; setup and blowing the bar off my chest. I mean in an angry, f-you fashion. I feel I accomplished it on most sets, but I did get a little loose toward the end. My set up is f-n exhausting. Because I'm fat.

    DEAD STOP PRESSES
    Or pin press, or whatever. Bar on pins at chest height, comp setup, press for 1's. I'm using a template that Chad Wesley Smith posted on JTS, so we'll see.

    235x1x8
    275x1x2
    315x1x2

    The 315's were a struggle, I'm not gonna lie (and you'll see on the vid)...Comp setup 30+ times is pretty taxing IMHO. Because I'm fat.

    BW PULL UPS
    I shot for 5 between each dead stop set, so I did prob 50. Some were sets of 2. Again, fat.

    1 ARM BARBELL ROWS
    One end of BB in corner, gripping the other end right at the collar. I used 25's, and pulled that bitch until the end of the bar touched my ear.
    2x25# plates x10x2
    3px10x2

    These were surprisingly hard. Increased ROM + unilateral exercise made it a little tough. Glaring weakness here.

    FACE PULLS
    40x15x4
    Big stretch, hard contraction.

    Few observations; unilateral back strength with a big ROM is sorely lacking. Most stuff I do is bilateral, and honestly my chest and arm length limit the ROM in those exercises. I'll still do 1 or 2 big rows, but I'm going to focus hard on unilateral stuff. Upper back, upper back, upper back.

    I forgot to take my Peak Beta+ prior, and honest to God I think I noticed it. I started dragging a bit, I could feel the LA burn in my back...I simply ran out of gas where I don't feel I should've.

    I need to work on lumbar mobility. Back got pretty tight/tired from setting up.

    Editing vid, I'll get it up shortly.

    Vid. Not all sets are there; I started on a different bench, and it felt all wrong. Upon measuring, it's fully 2" lower than the one I filmed on.

    Good work big guy. I need to start flippin tires/conditioning more. I just don't want to be dead and have it take away from my main lifts. Maybe I'm over thinking it.

    I try to condition only AFTER squat/dead day, and typically in a second session on bench day. I eat a little more, have yet to see detrimental effects.

    Even if I did, I feel they'd be a short term sacrifice; I'll perform better in the gym with improved conditioning & increased work capacity.

    Well said.

    Now do you have a set day for your workout days, or base them on recovery and such?

    I DL Monday, bench Wednesday, squat Friday, and body day is Saturday. With that setup I typically condition hard on Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday, with low or medium intensity cardio on all days but Sunday. I've yet to see an issue with recovery, at all, but my diet is f'n perfect.

    I quite enjoy the above training setup; I'm well rested for the training sessions, yet I can still tell I'm working hard.

    Got a quote today from Black Widow Training Gear on a custom rack; 3x3, 1" hole spacing, safety bars, j-cups, multi-grip pull up bar, dip attachment, top/bottom band pegs & plate storage. $825 + ship.

    I've got about $2500 budgeted for the ol garage gym (not including treadmill or elliptical), and I think that's a freakin solid price for what I'm getting.

    No point, just sharing.

    I did the same thing. Priced out everything from EFS while I was bored: a rack, deadlift platform, 2 barbells, bench, 600lbs of 45's and the rest of the weights. Came out to 2 grand, and that'd be the minimum of what I'd want. If I transfer somewhere without a good gym, my wife gave me the "ok" to buy it. No sense in it now though. 825 though? Hell ya, get it!

    So we're buying an elliptical instead...The lady wants an elliptical

    I want to go with EFS stuff, but for a rack, 825 is WAY tough to beat. I'll build my own booty fab DL platform, but a GHR is on my must-have list.

    Throw in a 0-90 bench, plates, few specialty bars (football & SSB) and I'll get to that $2500 in a freakin hurry. Boo.

    You're on. I'll post my end of week weight on Sat AM. I'll be 100% conditioning & diet compliant. Besides, it's a friendly bet so I'd have to be an uber douche to lie about that.

    I'm really surprised I haven't moved. Like, AT ALL. No shedding of water, no fluctuation, I'm a dead-bang 294 every morning.

    Hell, I'd LOVE to see 285 show up, but I'm not seeing it. Measurement on Sat will be very interesting, though.

    dude, with shelby's diet and the prowler, the poundage doesn't stand a chance.

    when it starts, it'll happen fast.

    That's what I'm thinking, too. One day I'll wake up and be down 4-5 all of a sudden.

    It's different than Skip's deal because of the lack of a Skipload. I'd refeed like a mofo, then be up between 10-15 pounds the following day from glycogen & water, then that'd drop off pretty consistently through the week.

    This is more of a methodical approach; no big swings in sugar/carb intake, just a slow and steady approach.

    I wonder if changing my TRT dosing is causing me to hold on to water in a way I'm unfamiliar with. Thoughts?

    nah, i wouldn't think that at all. i don't hold water do you?

    maybe over thinking it. you've only been on his diet for a couple weeks now. your body is still adjusting. i have no doubt if you stick to it 275 is not even a stretch.

    you have to walk the tight line of conditioning vs strength gains. but, it can be done...slowly...

    I guess I only noticed a water issue when I was adjusting to TRT at the beginning, so probably not.

    You're definitely right about conditioning vs strength. I'm still recovering well but I'm damn sure keeping an eye on it.

    I tend to hold a little extra when I space my shots out to e4d. Ed or eod seems to hold bloat to a minimum for me.

    Swanson-Cube Method to July Comp


    Here's where I'm posting from;

    Lying in the Crossfit room, by the door, legs on plyo boxes. Why? Because squat day.

    Cube W1D3 Squat H1

    Warm up-agile 8, foam roll, couple Prowler passes

    GM bar x infinity
    Low box squat bar x infinity

    SQUAT
    Bar, 135, 185, 225, 275, 315. Probably 30-35 reps total.

    380x2x5
    315x10
    225x20 Widowmaker.
    Puke
    Lie down

    I'm pressed for time, so I only got squats in. However, after reviewing my crap video I know one thing; CORE & UPPER BACK ARE WEAK.

    My legs never swam, I had zero issue moving the weight out of the hole. Watch and see how important torso strength really is.

    Vid coming.

    Also...being a fatarse is getting old.

    POV photo huh? Lol

    Looked like you are pushing off your toes...heel came up at times. Mobility is definitely important in the hips and even the ankles. Now the back strength is a no brainer and carries over to basically every lift...squat, DL, and bench. The weights go up and the links that are weak come out. Legs had no problem moving the weight though.

    Yep, I f'n see what you're talking about. Damn it. I appreciate you noticing that, though. That's a great catch.

    It's amazing that I've trained with dozens of S&C coaches (HS, college, arena) and NOBODY has alerted me to the back/core weak link. "Train legs harder", not "fix your ****ty core strength". I'm frustrated.

    On a high note-I honestly don't think leg strength will be an issue for a while-but feel free to tell me if you disagree. I think over the next 10 weeks, if I really get after these weak links I'll destroy the platform (relatively speaking-like for novice, sub-masters guys) in July.

    I'll total elite before I'm 40, damn it.

    YouTube "so you think you can squat". You'll get a ton of info. Watch your vid side to side. As gray bush mentioned you've got a bit if forward lean and the last set your hips were rolling underneath instead if keeping back. All if which points in the posterior chain department. I get the same issues my quads are a bit stronger than my Hams. Hip mobility also plays into it a little.

    Went back yo gym for a light PM session. Unloaded prowler rounds just to get a sweat going then 30 min MISS cardio on treadmill. Nothing special, feel pretty good...likely since I didn't get a whole training session.
