James Fullers' workout log - Powerlifter
Hey I decided to start up another workout log. I currently log over on ******** and have done so since April i believe. But heres a little about me. I got into power lifting last september and my first meet was 9/8/12. I just recently had a meet on 9/7/13. So heres how that meet went.
UPA WA State Fall Championships:
BWT 162.4 - 165lb open raw
Squat - 430, 455, 480, 510
Bench - 295, 325, 335, 345
Deadlift - 405, 415, 425 (failed attempt)
Total - 1270
Heres the federations and classes i compete in:
USPA - 165lb - open - raw classic
UPA - 165lb - open - raw
Supplements im taking:
protein (nothing specific, pretty much whatever i can afford)
LG Sciences Form-xt (just finshing up this, was using the trifecta kit to get ready for my last competition and the one a month prior to that)
Heres my workouts from Sunday and Monday. Just kind of taking it light and not pushing to hard since I just competed Saturday.
Rotator cuff warm up:
Underhand Bb rows w/ fat gripz:
Ohp - behind head w/ fat gripz:
Bb front raise w/ fat gripz:
Reverse Bb curl:
Standing calf raise:
I dont have a gym membership, sometimes I workout at the gym on base by my work but most of my training is done in my garage or my training partners garage.
Not sure when my next competition will be, kind of eyeing one late november early december but not sure if i can afford the trip down to them. So if not, maybe next march, so plenty of time to train. Ill try and post atleast one video of each session, so you can critique my form or give me praise or tell me how big of a ***** i am, doesnt matter. Hope you enjoy watching my journey in this sport of grown to love.

My youtube channel is "James Fuller" all my videos are there. most of them are of my meets and some of training. I have to get a tripod or something to hold my camera so I dont always have to have someone else film me, since its a hassle to have a spotter and a camera person.

Heres my vid from this last weekend - UPA Wa St Fall Championships
add 5lbs to all the squats, they forgot to calculate in the weight of the collars. they didnt realize that until squat was all done.

Heres just a quick vid from yesterdays workout - 9/9/13 225x25
i thought i was going deeper with my squats until i watched this, guess my legs were still tight from the weekend so it felt like i was hitting proper depth

just to make this clear when i write out my workouts i write it out like this "weight x sets x reps"

Have a heavy squat/deadlift session tomorrow so I held back for that. So just did a quick squat session and 3 repped up to 403 and ended with a bwt burnout. Still not a legit schedule (not that i ever am) but ill settle back down next week.

Good stuff man. Your squat form is so good and efficient! Depth was excellent up until 337 IMO but I just like to bury my squats in training so it's easier on meet day. I get more out of my knee wraps that way, too.

im trying to break my habit of always going to deep, screws me over during meet time lol. im trying to get a feeling of knowing exactly when i hit parallel. so i dont second guess my self and go deeper when i do compete. thanks tho

Dat volume! Nice work, man.

its been overdue that ive had a good session. i just had to figure out what not to do on monday that kept messing with my bicep for tuesdays bench night. cant do low bar back squats anymore prior to tuesday. since my flexibility sucks, i end up kind of straining/stretching out my bicep to much when i do them so when i go to bench it just feels like somethings gonna tear. so i think ill make my monday leg day have front squats instead.

They had me move my hands in on squats this weekend, and my arm was killing me for benches the next day.
