    Not bad, lol. I know they were bad. Sumo is not my thing, just doing it to strengthen my hips. Not an excuse to not improve my form though. They just felt weird. I was getting pissed and form went down even more.

    Yeah I noticed my knees were caving in a little as well. Forgot that cue today. Depth was def there tho.

    Nice work. Back was sort round before you even did the sumo reps. Maybe you're just curvy... LOL

    So, there's a trainer at my gym that I always talk to. Real cool guy. I decided to google his name.

    Here's the first picture that showed up:

    My first personal trainer was the same way, he had viking pictures, Conan-looking pictures, all kinds of photo shoot-type stuff. That's just what they do. ****, I'd wear Spartan **** even fat and hairy!

    Judging by the posing trunks one can assume he's on stage. My guess is this is at the night show during his routine and he probably wanted to have fun with it.

    Maybe the show was around Halloween.

    Week 2: Day 1- Heavy Squat

    Squat:
    275x2
    295x2
    315x2
    335x2(Rep PR)

    Phuck yes. Took my stance in today and I can honestly say my squats have never felt so strong. Got some bounce out of the hole. I'm not kidding when I say I'm 30-40lb stronger this way. Achieving depth was effortless and I think I was breaking parallel on a lot of reps.

    Pause squat (10 sec goal/no belt): 1x4- 225

    Since I'm going to keep squatting narrow, I thought I should spend some time in the hole to get comfortable.

    Leg press (high): 20x3- 200

    Goblet squat: 12x3- 65lb DB
    Hips loved it.

    Banded lateral walks: 10x3- x2 wrapped onx mini

    Great damn workout. I wish I could train this late everyday. Had 3 meals in me and I could feel the difference from fasted. Don't know exactly how long, but my guess is a little over an hr. For me that is great time. I was certainly not 100% today, lower back has been so damn sore. I felt so good with my squat i almost attempted 365x2. ALMOST, lol.

    Squat: 335x2

    http://youtu.be/qFRTFJExE4w

    I still need to work on spreading my knees. Also, staying more upright. I think I finally figured the cue to keeping my chest up, and I believe I was getting depth. Once again i trained solo so I apologize for the angle.

    Pause squat: 225

    http://youtu.be/jFwgmTRgxOM

    Goal was 10 sec. I don't think I was there quite 10, but I stayed until I thought my head was going to explode. I tucked my elbows and It forced my chest up so hard I almost ate sh1t on the way up haha.

    Thanks man. Now I need to find exact parallel depth with it, as well as spreading the floor. My walk outs are much improved. I should have listened to Sean earlier and narrowed my stance. This might sound weird, but this is the first time I really feel like I'm incorporating all my leg muscles into my squat.

    That pause had me redder than a tomato. I thought I was gonna pop for a second.

    Pauses are freaking brutal. I should do them more myself.

    Yeah, if someone's hovering around a 600lb squat and suggests something, I'm all ears.

    PR is a PR, small gain is a small gain. I will take my 315x4 deep as hell to the bank over 405x1 half ass depth. I have already added probably 30-40 pounds to my legit squat since actually hitting real depth.

    Yeah for sure, if it's not parallel it doesn't count. I'm in the same boat, since achieving proper depth my squat has steadily improved.

    I understand where you're coming from. I'm pretty hard on myself. I'm happy it's improving, not nearly satisfied though.

    Back/bi Today:

    Pull-up

    T-bar row

    Cat-back lat pull down

    Face-pull

    Incline DB reverse fly

    Standing DB curl

    Hammer curl

    Calves because I didn't do them yesterday


    Really need to work on my upper back. I need a good shelf for low bar eventually. Fast paced workout, in and out in an hour.

    Week 2: Day 2- RE Bench

    Bench: 8x1- 245

    Right from the get go I could tell that it wasn't going to be a great day for me. Back is still tight, which made it hard to get a solid arch. Legs are also destroyed. Since I wasn't feeling my strongest I really focused on form and a solid pause.

    Pause bench w/ chains (closer grip than norm)
    2 60# chains+20x5x4 (5 sec pause)

    Neutral grip DB bench: 15x3- 55's

    Cable fly: 24x3- 50

    I did 8 at the top, 8 at shoulder height, and 8 at the bottom.

    Tate press:
    35x12
    40x8x2

    DB standing MP: 8x3- 55's

    Decent workout, not my best. I contribute it to lack of efficient calories yesterday and the fact my lower body is beat. Glad I decided to tidy up my form instead of trying to use weights too heavy for proper pauses. I need to foam roll a lot more. It's the hardest thing for me to get motivated to do.

    Good sesh! I can sympathize with the not getting motivated for mobility work. Once you start getting looser and feeling better (and moving more weight) mobility work comes to you. Some people have lumbar pillows in their car, I have a lax ball for my lumbar (glutes and hams, mostly). Works every time.

    For sure. I usually train fasted because I can't eat anything within an hr before a workout. I could get up earlier, but I like to sleep too much.

    Good sesh! I can sympathize with the not getting motivated for mobility work. Once you start getting looser and feeling better (and moving more weight) mobility work comes to you. Some people have lumbar pillows in their car, I have a lax ball for my lumbar (glutes and hams, mostly). Works every time.
    Thanks brother. I usually try to foam roll 5 times a week, but been slacking. Quads need a thorough foam roll session, I can't remember a time they've been more sore.

    Got my body fat measured at work today. 16.9% @ 210. Not bad considering I've been eating like a pregnant woman. Goal: get to 220 and then slowly cut down to 205.

    Yeah, I've put on 5lbs since starting the cube. All in my legs and back thickness. Pretty solid pounds as well, I've added some fat but not much. I'm lucky in the fact I can add and drop pretty quick.

    My goal for spring is to be 205 at 12% and retard strong.

    Week 2: Day 3- Explosive Deadlifts

    Deadlift: 3x8- 275

    Really focused on getting my hips down, chest up, and getting my hips through. Speed was right where I wanted it.

    Reverse band Deadlift: 5x3- 405

    Toe's elevated RDL: 8x4- 185

    First time doing these w/ toes elevated. Could tell a difference in the hammys.

    Single leg leg press: 15x3- 100

    Cable pull-through: 15x3- 80

    Solid workout. My body has been pretty beat up all week, so I didn't go too heavy on anything and focused on compound movements w/ good form. There was a female physique girl in there posing in a g string w/ a perfect a$$. Talk about a distraction.

    Week 2: Day 4- Body day

    Seated BB MP: 6x4- 155

    I've hit a wall with my presses. I need to figure out my next move.

    CG bench w/ pause: 12x3- 135

    DB lateral raise: 15x3- 20's

    Cable row: 8x3- 120

    Reverse pec deck: 20x3- 100

    Banded curl: 8x3- 50+ average EFS band

    Quick, light, face paced workout. Not much to comment on except I need to improve my OH press.

    On another note, a kid from my old boxing gym just got his 11th win as a pro on showtime last night. He is now 11-0 w/ 9 ko's. He trains with Floyd Mayweather and will be a title holder one day.

    I use to love sparring him. Not that I won any lol.

    I gotta try these reverse band deads at the end of a lighter day.

    Solid freaking workouts man. I see you put the plate in the right place on SLDL lol. I failed that some how.

    Awesome about the friend. Stay in touch with that guy!
