Killn' The Cube: My powerlifting venture begins

Page 89 of 137 First ... 8788899091 ... Last

  1. Won't be able to train today. Saturday night from 1am to 6am it was coming out from both ways constantly. I didn't think I had that much fluids in me. I was very dehydrated and about passed out. Yesterday I slept 23 out of 24 hours. Also only ate a cracker the entire day.

    I'm feeling better today, but I'm still dehydrated and the last thing I want to do is blow mud on a heavy set of deads.


  2. About to go deadlift and squat. Still feeling questionable, but I know I have the stomach flu and I'm not contagious anymore.

    Dear God, please do not let me vomit, pass out again, or blow out my Hanes. Respectfully, Cincy.

  3. Might I suggest two pair of drawers, just in case you shart in the first ply. Hahaha. But seriously, I feel for you man. It's happened to the best of us.

    Haha, good thinking!

    Hell it might be advantageous. A powerful shart might provide some additional horsepower coming out of the hole!

    Thinking positive heah.

  5. Two ply briefs are the bee's knees. Dat carryover tho.

    Well if I'm going to double ply, I might as well triple.

    Hanes on Hanes on Hanes.

    Once I PR, no one will laugh at me. I'll be a sort of pioneer. "The shart heard across the world."

  7. Westside: ME upper

    Deficit deadlift: 495x0

    http://youtu.be/aADluGk0Sas

    I felt incredibly weak today. Form was terrible. I've lost 8 pounds and still feeling like a turd. Even after 2 scoops of white flood reborn and a bronkaid. I was in the zone, but somewhere way off base, could not focus and was fighting the vomit.

    2" pause squat w/o belt:
    315x1x3
    335x1x3

    2" front squat paused w/o belt:
    225x2x3
    245x2x2

    Barbel back extensions:
    135x8x2
    155x6

    Leg extensions: 100x12x3

    Took me forever to get this in, maybe 2 hours. I was taking my time because I was nauseous. I couldn't do anything high rep or I would get extremely light headed.

    I got it in and that's a positive. Focusing on regaining this weight and keeping the fluids coming.

  8. ME lower, can't even get my days straight. SMFH.

  9. It'll happen brother. Some good squats at least

    Thanks Sean.

    I've seen that you've had some stomach issues before, any tips on recovering?

    The dehydration is what's killing me. I passed out cold after losing all fluids Sunday morning. I didn't think I had that much inside of me. I was losing fluids from HS. I can't drink a lot or I'll throw it back up.

  11. Dunno bud. I just had to let it pass that one time. Go get some Pedialyte and dip on it. Let your body recover on it's own.

    Sure thing.

    I'll be fine in a day or two. This is my first time with any illness in 2-3 years. Pressing tomorrow will be interesting.

  13. Man, that must have been rough going for all that not 100%. Get better Cincy

    Thanks brother.

    I've spent many a Saturday at the gym hungover and stomach flu is a different level of suck.

  15. Westside: ME upper

    Incline:
    255x2 missed 1 rep

    I misjudged how weak my incline is. I was attempting to set a 3rm, but 2 was an absolute grind. I haven't worked on my incline considerably in years. Gonna get my Swanson on.

    Incline backdown:
    225x3x3
    235x3x2

    Bench to a 1 board w/ short light bands:
    185x5
    205x5
    225x5
    Add sling shot
    255x5
    275x5

    DB side laterals: 12lb DB's (constant tension and slow AF)
    x20
    x18
    x12
    x8

    DB tri extensions:
    35's x10x2
    35's x8

    Pec dec: a lot of reps focusing on TUT

    Awesome session. Feeling better and everything, just need to get my appetite back.

    I picked up some wraps at the meet this weekend and I love them. They make a difference without a doubt. I think I will get more weight out of them honestly.

    Awesome stuff. I think you being super dehydrated from being sick would negatively effect benching.

    Get your bloat back on and come back stronger in a few Weeks.

    Thanks Ace.

    Honestly, I think my incline just blows. My max is only 275 compared to a 345 flat.

    I'm hoping I bounce back faster than that, haha! My banded presses were stronger than ever today, so that's a good thing.

  18. You like your short lil Grippers? 24" may not be ideal, but they must be 1000x better than nothing.

    For sure man. I didn't wrap on my 255 set then wrapped on my 275 set and it felt easier than the 255. I think I'll get weight out of them.

    Yeah, they're not like knee wraps, you can put them on whenever. I usually start at like 275 on flat bench. It's not a huge deal, but it will protect them in the long run and it doesn't take away from wrist strength in my experience.

    Do you think it adds weight to your bench?

    It might be placebo, and aside from the injury prevention facet, I think I'm stronger with them. Maybe because it helps keep the barbell more in line with your forearm? Even an inch of leverage makes a difference, you know.

  22. IMO, not really. I see it more as a security, and doesn't take away from the "raw" title. But, if you bench 300 without them and 305 with, then I suppose they do help you lift more.

    Thanks for your opinion.

    I agree, definitely more as a security. My wrists are an issue that stems from years of boxing and skateboarding. I just like that it provides some relief, lol.

    Just saying though, I either have strong placebo or I'm getting upwards of 15 out of them.

  24. I haven't really seen how your wrists are when you bench, but if they were really laid back before and now you've got them car ramrod, then yeah it'll gain you leverage. But I'm with Sean, you'll never hear people discussing the carryover from their wrist wraps, just safety and security.

  25. Interesting topic. It adds to mine definitely...really just bc the weak left wrist though.

    I think we have to draw a line on Raw...bc next people be like "the singlet did the work! Strip him!" and no one needs that. At least not from me.
