Tossing Weight With Torobestia: Powerlifting Log

Page 9 of 23 First ... 7891011 ... Last

  1. Well, woke up with quite the surprise. Right eye had been bugging me a lot last night, and this morning it was swollen shut and also had a thick layer of dried phlegm holding it shut. This was accompanied by congestion in my right sinus, too. Anyways, it cleared up by this afternoon, and it doesn't feel irritated so I dont think it's pink eye.

    As promised hit the gym up for some back and arms. Fairly short, small session

    11/14/13

    BENCH CONTINUED

    LXC upper body (was super tight, SMR on pec minor was held for a minute as opposed to 30 seconds. felt real good after)

    BENT OVER BB ROWS superset BAND PULLAPARTS
    285-12,10,10,10,10 <-- last set first 5 reps 1 second pause at contraction
    red bands-5x20

    FOOTBALL SKULLCRUSHERS superset HAMMER CURLS superset FACEPULLS
    110-12,12,12
    65-10,10,10 <-- major body english 3rd set lol
    130-15,15,12 <-- increased tut towards last set

    SLANT-BAR TRICEP PUSHDOWNS
    85+26lb chain-12
    95+26lb chain-10
    95+26lb chain-10 dropped to 95x10 dropped to 55x18

    pump out the wazoo

    11/13/13

    BENCH

    Upper body mobility stuff

    BENCH, PAUSE LAST REP
    135-5
    185-5
    225-3
    275-1
    295-2
    315-2
    290-3

    NGBP, PAUSE 1" FROM CHEST
    275-5

    Stopped workout more or less, will resume tomorrow. Felt very weak, almost ill-weak. Went into some rehab stuff

    CUBAN PRESS: 4020 tempo
    35-8
    45-8,8

    L-LATERAL RAISES: 3020 tempo
    20 (per hand)-9

    SIDE LYING DB ABDUCTION TO 45 superset LOW PULLEY EXTERNAL ROTATION: 3022 tempo
    10-2x12
    15-2x12

    External rotations actually didn't feel to good. I might not do these again. The other stuff, cubans, l-lateral raises, and side lying db abduction all felt great
    Nice benching, Toro/GF. I want 360 by next week!

    Sub'd to learn.

  4. What's good, man? Welcome

  5. 11/15/13

    SQUATS HEAVY 1

    PVC upper and lower back, ITB and adductors, LXC glutes and upper body, rocking frog stretch, bent knee iron cross, hip circles x10 forward/backward, SMR to left calf

    SSB SQUAT
    155-5
    245-5,3 <-- problem with first set, second set was good
    295-2
    335-1
    380-5x2 <-- done every 3 minutes. I have video of the last 4 sets

    SSB PAUSE SQUATS
    335-4,4 <-- first set ok, second set all out

    RUSSIAN KNEE CURLS
    BW (267)-10 rest-paused 4+1 rest-paused 1+1 = 15 rest paused + 2 assisted (PR since about a year and a half ago, more including heavier bw)

    LUNGES
    30-15,15
    30 total pounds, or 15lb each hand

    Another solid squat workout. For some reason the squats felt super hard today. I dont know what that was about. I am glad I scaled up the weight from 350 to 380, though. 350 would have been too easy for me I think and I felt like doing some work.

  7. You got some steel cable hammies, Toro. That's some serious volume with the SSB too, buddy.

  8. I'm fairly happy with my progression with the natural ghrs/russian curls and returning back to my old strength. Now if I could just bring up my quads back to speed I'd be all set (ok, and maybe by shoulders and biceps).

  9. 11/17/13

    SPEED BENCH

    PVC upper and lower back, LXC upper body, band lat stretch, PNF pec stretch

    CGBP (+doubled minis, ~100lbs tension)
    bar-8
    95-3
    135-2
    185-1
    200-5x1 <-- 45 sec between sets
    Felt good. With my arch and the right bar path (down on bottom of sternum close to upper abs) I had no pain

    PRONE PULLUPS superset TRIPLE THREATS
    +20-8,8,8,8,7
    red band through black band-12,11,10,11,11

    DB FLOOR PRESS*
    110-10,10
    Obviously weight per hand

    DB SCAPTIONS superset EZ CURLS superset LAT-BAR PUSHDOWNS
    30-15,15,12,12
    105-12,12,12,12
    110-15,15,15,15

    CUBAN PRESS (forgot to maintain correct tempo, supposed to be 4020 but was more like 2020)
    40-8
    50-8,7

    L-LATERAL RAISES (3020)
    20-10

    *Sorry guys, couldnt let the db floor press go. It doesn't actually feel bad, and I think I've figured out why this one feels fine but a bb floor press feels bad. Something about my setup with the dumbbells makes it so my scapula is depressed versus on the bb I feel it's shrugged, even though they're retracted. I dont know. Either way I will still keep away from the bb floor press but I think the db ones are fine.

  10. Nice job today
    If DB floors dont hurt stick with them its hard to give up something u feel is beneficial

  11. I like floor presses, even with DBs. Glad you have them in the rotation.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  12. 600 pull tomorrow, or...?

  15. I'd make another "if you don't hear back from me" joke, but the last time I did that it came true. So I won't repeat that mistake

  16. How'd I miss this? Subscribed.

  17. Glad to hear the floor presses and CGBP are feeling good. What's going on with bench? You gonna try for 355+ this week? You got it if you want it, me thinks. But hell that's nothing but a thang compared to what you intend to pull. 605?!?! This toro has big cajones.

  19. Hey man. No, I decided to drop out of that contest and just restart my whole bench cycle from the beginning. I've lost a little strength, but more importantly I've lost the confidence to handle heavy weights. That combined with the imminence of shoulder issues due to recent history basically means the better option here is to focus on the big picture and let this one go. Thanks for checking in and rooting for me. Maybe I'll make it up with a half decent deadlift, eh?

    Caution is the better part of valor, so I strongly support your decision, though I did want to see you get it. And I can relate, I had the OHP prize in my pocket, but I had to drop out, though I still got second.

    1/2 decent, lol. Lose the petty little battle, win the war, as you are. Keep battling, Toro.

    For sure. Him and Sean both. It's just astonishing what they have accomplished without AAS. And even with it, they still would be mightily impressive. (Fuming with envy.)

    They used to censor out competing company names. I think there's been a lot of drama pertaining to supplement recalls and such lately that they finally uncensored GNC to make the news articles on the front page make sense to everyone else. But there are few other ones that are sort of ridiculous. It's kind of funny they censored GNC for so long, anyways, considering how they are not even at the same level as Nutraplanet.
