  2. Bench

    Worked up to 185 x 5 x 5(last rep was a grinder from hell, but I wanted to get it bad) 135 x 7(arms were shot!)(all paused of course)
    Chest supported Row-2plates x 8 reps x 4 sets Face pulls-80 x 15 reps x 4 sets

    Doesn't look like a lot but on this day there was nothing a tricep extension could have done that the bench didn't already. The last rep took everything I had. My whole body felt it. Accomplished my goal of the day. I tried to get a video from the wife bit she said she couldn't get back far enough to film bc of the other people at the gym being in the way. Women, amirite?

    Now I need to decide what to go to next week. Am I going to try building more with 185 or move up to 190-195 and start at 5 sets of 3 reps again or work up to 4 sets of 12 reps at 185...decisions.

    Side note, as per CWS from JTS I did like how the chest supported row was the exact opposite motion of the bench.

    If you have a meet in mind, I'd say get the 5 sets of 3 going. If you're still a ways out, I'd build a little more size, volume, strength endurance etc. With the 185x4x12 or even 4x8 and then move up.

    Good effort finishing the set, man.

    Meet isn't until december...pretty sure it's the 15th...I'll stay building 185 then. Eventually I'll throw on my sling shot for assistance, but my triceps are getting fried.

    Yep, bigger muscle has the potential to be a stronger muscle. And definitely get your volume in to prepare you to have good assistance work when the loads get heavy. Assistance is where the total grows.

    I like that idea. Thanks brother!

    I will really try to get a video next week to help keep my form in check as I know I seem to always miss something, or two something's on bench.

  7. 7/15 DE Dead

    Sumo-worked up to 275 x 1, 1, 1
    Conventional-225 x 3, 3, 5, 3, 3
    Ghetto SSB GM-+50 x 6, 5, 4, +90 x 4
    Cable Crunch/Hanging Leg Raise-150 x 12reps x 4 sets/6,7,5,8
    Walking Lunges-35's x 3sets of 10

    Trouble getting into position sumo again so I went conventional...and realized I am much weaker conventional now compared to 6 months ago. Good session, but not stellar. Having Deadlift troubles lately.

    7/16 RE Squat
    *This day was going to be a light cardio day but I was feeling good and after a not so stellar workout yesterday I decided to go for it.

    Warm up-8 minutes glide step thing
    SSB Squat(ghetto rig)-+50 x 5, +90 x 5, +110 x 5, +145 x 5(taped)
    *Don't know what the bar weights so I put in plate weights
    Toe Elevated SLDL-135 x 10reps x 2 sets, 185 x 10reps x 2 sets(taped)
    Leg Raises(non-hanging)-15, 15, 15, 10

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rW1AZSU0ILA

    Was pretty whopped after 3rd workout in 3 days. Ended up losing a set bc I found yet another ex powerlifter who I ended up talking to for 10 minutes of so. Very cool guy who had multiple WNPF records. This workout felt great, those SSB's are hard, and no belts or wraps on this day.

    lol that's so ****ing awesome!!

    Although, I wore Oly shoes to do some snatch grip deadlift and it was great, so you could probably sneak those plates under your heals for that

    Well we have one without handles so i just used my lifting straps and wrapped them around the bar. You can do something similar with a regular barbell and lifting straps.

    Herderdude and Sean, it took me until I was home watching the video to freaking notice my set up was wrong lol

  14. Odds and Ends

    Cross Ramp Warm up

    Calf Extensions-6plates x 15reps x 5sets
    Pendlay Rows-135 x 8reps x 4sets
    T/Y-25's x 5es, 5es, 8es, 8es/5, 8, 8, 8
    Spider Curl/Band Pull Aparts-40 x 12, 15, 12, 10/25reps x 4sets
    Shrugs/Side Bends-70 x 10reps x 4sets/70 x 10es x 4sets
    Hanging Leg Raise/Cable Crunch/Cable Torso Rotations-BW x 8, 8, 7/150 x 15, 12, 12/60 x 10es, 12es, 80 x 10es

    This workout felt great. Felt a little sore in a couple areas from earlier this week but nothing bad. I did no grip work but my grip was shot because of the shrugs/side bends/hanging leg raises.

    Main things I focused on were stretching sore areas, developing my upper back, and hitting what I don't have time for in normal training. This has also become like a volume day as well.

    Back at it sunday.

    Side note, I was pool side all day yesterday on my off day because it actually didn't rain for once, and I got some serious tanage so I expect my lifts and muscle tone to increase substantially. Its just the facts.

    Oblique Twists/Leg(Body kinda)raises off of a decline Bench-3sets of yo momma

    Form needs some work these. I can already see that my back rounds some and my shoulders are in front of the bar. These felt much better than Sumos have lately. The workout overall was awesome. Hat was literally soaked to the brim. For some reason I can't use my belt with conventional. It feels like bad tight in the lift, or too lose to notice. May be my belt as it isn't top of the line. 100%Raw is okay with me though. If the numbers go up I am happy. Probably won't pull from the floor next week unless light.

  18. My belt bothered the hell out of my coonventional pulls until I jacked it up as high as I possibly can. Not Efferding/Lilliebridge high, but up against the bottom of my ribs. Actually before I threw out my back, I learned how to use it to give me some pop off of the floor.

    What helps keep my shoulders lined up with the bar is continuing to sit down as I'm pulling. I noticed that you sit down and back to take out slack, and then you more stand up with it than drive your heels down. That's what's causing your back to rotate back in front of the bar. I would lever back against the bar and keep levering back and sitting down until it's time to lock out. Another cue I've heard is to push your heels through the floorboards. Here's my best example of belt placement for me and also sitting down and back (again, for me).

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8brkrSu7Qbo


    You'll notice, my butt doesn't actually continue to sit down as the bar rises, but it really feels like it does. You're basically using your bodyweight to teeter-totter the weight off of the ground. If you take 225 and sit back until the bar comes off of the floor, it will feel like this in your head: Sit, sit, sit, lock it out. I hope that makes sense, try it out next time.

  19. Herderdude thank you again.

    I will mess with higher up belt positioning.

    I could tell that I didn't have the correct, teetor-tooter, type of thing going on. I wasn't even going to initially tape and then decided I needed to see it.

    I think I gotta drive backwards harder overall. I'm sticking conventional for a while as it seemed stronger and 10 times more explosive off the floor. I'll tape again in the coming weeks to see if I improved.

    I like sumo, but I think doing it all the time for my body starts to wear out the hips and groin. I'll go back to it after awhile and use whatever is stronger in December.

  20. Good workout man. I hear you on sitting back more on deadlifts. It's hard for me to find the balance between sitting back properly and not falling backwards.

    How did you like the reverse bands?

    It is quite the cosmic struggle haha

    I thought it was awesome bc I did plenty volume, went near my max weights, and didn't completely fry my CNS. I had it set to make it all me at the top and still working off the bottom. I strapped on the red mini and did a rip at 315 just to see and decided I needed the black minis for deads or I'd snap them ****ers lol. I'll keep them In my ME rotation for sure.

  22. Bench

    Warm up-Defranco's warm up-banded shoulder distraction-internal external rotations

    Bench(competition pause)-Bar x 5 x 2, 95 x 5 x 2, 135 x 3, 2, 155 x 3, 175 x 3, 185 x 5, 5, 3, 3, 205 x 1(for transitional purposes)
    +sling shot-225 x 3, 3, 2(no spot so not putting out the last one just in case)
    Tate Press-30's x 8, 10, 10, 10
    Chest Supported Row-Worked up in triples by 10 and 5 lbs increments to 135 from 90 for triples wide grip and back down close grip

    My body was pretty wrecked from deads yesterday, Hence the long work up to keep volume up and get warm. Joints feeling kinda beat up so instead of just dropping off on bench I decided to go up with the slingshot to save the joints and still stimulate the muscles. Those were paused as well. May need to consider not doing a bench day after a dead day. My work schedule this week just kind of made this hard and I had a hankering to deadlift yesterday. I know I talked about going to like 4 sets of 8 but I think working up to 190 for 3 x 5 and then to 5 x 5 and then up first will help the weight feel lighter...I dunno. I just know I lose form when I rep high(more so than usual).

    Main thing about this session is I did what my body allowed and had a good workout. Also, if anyone hasn't noticed, I am spending a lot of time on the main lift each workout...I am not "majoring in the minors" which I feel is important for my growth at this moment since I have no lifts mastered in the slightest(technique wise).

  23. That's good that you noticed that you lose form and you decided to do something about it. Going up in weight and doing your 3x5 and 5x5 is still an excellent option. More first reps is always a good thing.

  24. Keep killing man, everything is coming along as it should

  25. So after much thought I realized some things I could have done differently with the cube to work more to my advantage. What started this thought process is I am still a little beat up from deads and have to squat tomorrow. Well beauty is I have to do DE Squats so it will be great for that. Huge advantage to the program. The problem is in the first couple weeks the percentages he has laid out do exactly fit what I personally could be dynamic with, or weights that were working for my repetitive numbers.

    The take away is what Lilly says, I am recognizing how I am different and am learning already what I can do to improve the next run. I don't have it completely set up as of yet but I have many ideas in my head. I'm not laying them all out here right now.

    This is all coming from I was thinking that this type of program wasn't for me shortly after starting as I posted earlier in the log, but I think I can see now how I can actually use it and it be advantageous to me, and give it a better second run.

    End blog entry.
