Rob112^3...That means cubed guys. See what I did?

  1. Gotta jump in with Sean on this one. If you're looking for size/strength, google guys like

    Dan Green
    Stan Efferding
    Konstantin Konstantinovs
    Skinny Mark Bell
    Vince Urbank
    Eric Lilliebridge (keeping in mind he's 23 years old)
    Brandon Lilly
    Chuck Vogelpohl (before the meet day bloat)
    Matt Kroc
    Sam Byrd

    That list could go on and on.

    I also feel like it's easier to get into powerlifting. One could step on the platform at any stage of their development as a lifter, but I think it's fair to say that lots of people would be wary of stepping onstage if they weren't yet satisfied with their muscularity or bodyfat levels. I know I wouldn't.

    Thanks for the feedback, all of you; and yes I've seen the beasts who could (and do) realistically transition from platform to stage and win shows, Konstantinovs, Kroc, and Lilly are my most admired, obviously for the strength, but for representing both sides of the spectrum when it comes to balancing strength/size/conditioning.

    I have a bodybuilder's mentality when it comes to diet/conditioning, and that wouldn't change if I opt to enter powerlifting. Who doesn't want to be strong, big and lean to the best of their ability?

    Herder hit the nail on the head with regards to stage anxieties, its something that I could see myself experiencing, but on the platform the dynamic just seems so different and much more personal, you compete against yourself.

    Anyways carry on, I'll be following the log for sure.
  5. RE Squat


    Warm up note-started adding the red mini band to my hypers on the second set

    Squat-135 x 5, 185 x 5, 225 x 5, + Belt 250 x 5(possible PR), +wraps 275 x 5(PR taped)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ma08E9YOZUs
    GMs to pins-Worked up to 185 x 5reps x 3 sets(last set taped)
    1 Leg Angled Press-Plate Each side times 8el, 5el, 5el with little to no break
    Cable Crunches/Side Bends-150 x 20reps x 4 sets/60 x 15es, 12es, 10es, 10es

    Really awesome workout today. actually having my schedule allow 2 days of rest may have helped. I have my thoughts on the squat form, but if you guys have any pointers it would be appreciated. That was a very hard 5 for me. Still working on my wrapping technique.
    This was my first time trying this GM variation. Felt like the pin was a hair low so it war hard, but up one felt too easy. Definitely nice for the rotation of GM madness.

    I was supposed to do a lunge variation but I was smoked from the squats and GMs; hence the 1 leg angle press. Time to move up in weight on the cable crunch. Tomorrow is Bodybuilding and weakness training. I may not do a press outside of shoulder press to see if that helps with some of the soreness I get benching.

    Tomorrow is the day America was birthed. 237 years old...doesn't seem a day over 200.

  6. Solid work my man.
    Log: http://anabolicminds.com/forum/workout-logs/226478-country-gets-huge.html#post3905023

  7. BB + Weakpoint
    7/4

    Kroc Row-95 x 15ea(PR), 8
    Hammer Curl w/Fat Gripz-40's x 6, 5, and 4 each arm
    DB Shrugs-75's x 10reps x 3sets
    HS Calf-6plates x 15reps x 6 sets
    Chest Supported Row/Chest Supported Reverse Fly-90 x 4sets or 5reps/20's x 8, 5, 5
    Leg Raises-4 sets of 10

    Bench
    Worked up to 185 x 5, 5, 5, 4, 3 all with pause
    Close Grip Cable Rows/Faces Pulls(both on cybex)-Mystery weight x 4 sets on each exercise
    Incline Rolling Tricep/TY-30's x 8, 7, 8, 6/20's x 8reps x 4sets

    I think bench was going right today because even my legs felt sore by the end. I am making Sunday my bench day all the time because I can actually workout with some more experienced lifters on Sundays. I figure it is in my best interest to take that time.

    Kinda short/sweet updates. Not much PC time lately.

  11. That's awesome that you're going to get to work with some strong and experienced guys on your bench. Should yield good results!

  13. RE Deads

    Warm up-Rumble Roll-super set of 30 hypers/10 bw lunges each leg/10 air squats with a red band wrapped around my legs-hip opener routine with banded distractions

    Pin Pulls-Worked up to-275 x 5, 3, +red mini x 3(taped), then 3 more quick singles
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0p8z-y3lUag
    Reverse Box Lunge-BW x 10, BW+50lbs x 10reps x 4sets
    Cable Crunch/Side Plank-160 x 12, 12, 12, 17/4 sets each side
    leg raises-4sets of 12reps

    This workout felt awesome. Added some bands...bc I wanted to. I was thinking about my last deadlift session and I got to thinking that...maybe it wasn't all the bar, maybe I am weaker from the shins up with out that power off the floor. I can see the bar making a difference, but not as drastic as it felt. To work on this more is is why I really added the bands. Main thing I am trying to do, and I haven't successfully on this day, is work on getting that last 6-8inches of the lift all with pulling the hips to the bar instead of using my upper back or more legs. It is in the tutorial I posted. It can take inches off the ROM. Still working on it. I did many sets to build up so I got a lot of practice.

    Probably off until wednesday.

    Hmmm...I'll mash and stretch it all out. I noticed that some by the logo on my shirt. Having a little trouble keeping the shoulders back and grabbing the bar.

    I'll tape again next week.

  17. Rodja, what's your go to method for thoracic mobility? I've just been messing around with a lacrosse ball/double lacrosse ball.

  19. Looked to me that the bar was out in front of ya a little bit too. Could be because of the bands, but I think you could have kept it tighter. That would have cleaned you up some and kept you back/tighter and let your hips drop a little as well.

    That does happen when I start breaking down. I've noticed that on a session awhile back. I'll keep it in mind next dead session. Pretty sure it's DE from the floor which is good and bad for form check(good bc from floor, bad bc light weights so easier to do right).

  21. Yep. If form is breaking down keeping that bar as tight as F'n possible will help minimize it. Honestly if I had to pick the most important thing to teach/do when pulling that would be it. I'd love to discuss form with you more but I am a die hard conventional puller, as you know, and know about as much about sumo as anyone else, and probably less.

    So I came across this at lunch break. Very motivating to me as a person who isn't close to a good PL gym and has a hectic schedule so workout partners are hard to keep consistent even if they are good.

  23. DE Squats

    Warm Up-rumble roller, 40 hypers, 15 BW lunges each leg, 20 air squats with red micro mini, Kelly Starret Hip Opener w/banded distractions

    Box Squat-185 x 6sets of 2
    Reverse Band(Red Mini doubled) Good Mornings-185 x 5, 205 x 5, 225 x 3sets of 5(this was hard!)
    HS Hack Squats-2plates x 6sets of 10reps switching from close/competition/wide stances
    Cable Crunches-160 x 15reps x 5sets
    Side Bends-70 x 3sets of 10reps each side

    Killer ****ing workout! First time with 225 on my back for good mornings(well kinda) and it was rough! Doing box squats were really helping me load the hamstrings and sit back. They were hard. I did explode up but not at all down. I tried to video but it ended up a crotch shot sooo I don't like you guys that much. First time on Hack Squats in forever and they feel a lot like front squats...easier of course. Core getting stronger by the week.
