    Chasin' Gaynor...


    Wednesday 9/11

    15" Pin Pulls #525+#100 Chains about #625 @ top x3x3 (tried to get a good snap up over the knees)
    1" Deficit Pin Pulls #525 x3x3 (good start off pins, but a looooong pull by the time the 3rd set/3rd rep rolls 'round)

    1" Def RDL's #405 x8x2 (read 8 reps 2 sets)

    Clse Stance Squats #275 x8x2 (slight heel for some quad work)

    Clse grip strict Pull Dwns #175 x10x4

    Pwer Surgs #405 x15x3
    Called it/


    The RDL's started to beat me a little after the pin pulls, since my low back was hammered.
    Wanted to get in some fuller leg work so went with closer stance oly squats and some quad push
    Very f****ing hot here today +90's & humid and it was zapping me pretty good.
    Still felt pretty good with the pulls from the pins, since I get no bar flax at all from that start. The full weight, is right at the very start.

    Might as well stick my old arse man log here for now, so youz can scream obscenities and make fun of the elders, as the forum I used to be on, seems to have closed or lost their account status.

    Friday 9/13 Some BBing for the shoulders
    Incline Press #145 x8x5
    OHP's #95 x10x5
    Light GM's #135 x25 (getting some blood in the chain)
    2" Def Speed Pulls #225+ Greens x3x4
    Tri Extens #90 x10x4
    Leg Raises x30
    Hanging Raises x25
    Cheat Curls oly bar #135x10



    Still having some stiffness in the old shoulders, so I might back away from the heavier lower pressing reps for a bit and do some BBing again.
    The Incline did not hurt and I could take a wider grip on those, so I might run with them for a bit too. Felt a decent pump.

    Thanks for the kudos guys.
    Looks like some good strong arse lifters here, so that will help me to chase some of you young guys F*** and try and keep my head above the water.
    Well maybe at least for some deads and squats possibly!?!?

    Monday 9/16
    15" Pin Pulls #545 +#100 Chains x2x3 (2 reps 3 sets)
    1" Deficit Pin Pulls #545 x2x2
    1" def...#500x6 Yee haaaa

    RDL's From Floor #425x10, 8

    Zerchers #225 x8x2 (to get some upright torso and leg drive work)

    BB Rows #180x5
    #230x8x3
    #180x10

    Shrugs #315 x25x2


    The Pin pulls went quite well I thought and moved to deuces. Came off the pins with good speed and lockout with #645 @ top felt good not too slow not real fast either.
    The RDL's felt lighter too, but I was going from floor and not a deficit today. The 2nd set however beat the carp from me some as my hams and butt was seizing up on me.
    Did Zerchers since I have trouble with front squats. The #225 was not hard, but I really feel like I am suffocating doing those, as the bar position does not allow you to get a lot of air into the lungs. All in all I felt today's work was a keeper.
    Wanted to vid the pin pulls but my camera battery was dead. Will get some up in the near future hopefully.

    Well, maybe pulling but ANY pressing is actually embarrassing.

    Thanks bud, but it has been lots of hard work along the way to get here. ;-)

    Wednesday 9/18

    OHP's #115 x5x5
    #95 x10x2

    CGBP's #175 x5x5
    #155 x8x2

    Hng Leg Raises x15x2

    Wrist Curls #135 x25
    COC #1 x6 ea. hand (Thru W/O)
    6" Con Block Pinches x5's (Same)


    More getting by pressing.
    Last week I added in Erase Pro and Anebeta, along with 10 mgs topical DHEA and one pump of Formeron daily. (not sure about that one yet!?)
    I seem to get as much out of 2 cups of strong coffee and my creapure. Oh well, we'll see how the month goes!?
    Thought I would be a bit sorer today from Mondays pull/work, but not much so might see what happens for Fridays squats.

    That is a very serious stack you have there. Interested in how it treats you.

    Well I am only using 1 Erase Pro a day and 4 Anebeta's (on label) The DHEA covers my thumb nail, but they say only try one pump. The Formeron says you can use 1-2 pumps, but I always tend to stay on the lowest sides with supps. Well maybe I drink 2 1/2-3 mugs of coffee on some DL days.
    As far as how I felt after this, I seemed to have had a descent pump. Not like when I was 25, but I'll take any muscle pump at my age Ha ha ha

    Hey thanks kiddo. I still look forward to it, as much as I did 30 years ago. I almost hate not being able to do it more often sometimes...! Not sure why I am so into beating myself up, but I guess I have always been more physical than mental.

    Friday 9/20

    4" deficit Speed Pulls #315+2 greens x3x3 (About #515 at top)
    4" Def RDL's #315 strait wt. x20x1 (*Crossfit ha ha) Donned the straps & bar touching my arch on each rep, phuck, paused at top at number15 for a few breaths then blew out the last 5.
    Oly Squats clse stance #315 x5x2 x8x1

    Zerchers Pin #5 #225x5
    #315x2
    #405x1 (Static farggin' ab work ha ha ha)

    Pull Dwns #205 x10x4

    Pwer Shrugs #405 x15x3


    Well after the speed pulls I wanted some lighter ham/glute work so I went to a high rep set. Was gonna quit at 15 but took a few breaths holding the weight at top and crammed in 5 more for the 20. The last rep felt like someone was pouring lava down my back and legs. kicked me pretty hard, but I held on for the squats.
    Funny but maybe the BCAAs kicked in (took small scoop b4 W/O with my 2 Anabetas and a little creatine) since after the squats, I seemed to get a good second wind and hit my pull dwns and shrugs harder than I figured.
    Legs are rubbery and shaky feeling. Next Wed will be the next pull session.
    * There was a joke on another board about a guy hitting #500x10 in the DL and most on the board thought that was pretty bad arse. One guy said well, #600x10 is bad ass. #500 x20! is pretty dang good, #500x10 is Crossfit.
    Didn't Benny do #575 x20 or somethin'??? (When I grow up I wanna pull just like him and KK)

    Hey thanks guy it is likely my best/only forte, but like Atomic Freddie Peterson says, (70 yrs Old and pulls #680 or something) it takes lots of hard work to get there and I think I have paid some dues over the years. Somedays I do feel I am doggin it but I have certainly brought up my work capacity over the months/years and W/O's to see what I am capable of and where I start to break down.

    Here is another guy I chase and is a secret hero of mine...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nvy4l...2LHiWdn4tuHb-w

    I think he hit #804 under #200BW...!
    I have never seen anyone grinding out a rep like this guy^. Almost looks scary. Gotta wonder what his BPressure reading is at the top of some of those pulls.

    Benny #575 x22...

    Yeah, Benny is basically a fork lift.

    Wednesday 9/25

    15" Pin Pulls #565+#100 Chains x2x3
    2" Deficits from floor #545 x3
    #515 x3x2
    #500+#100 chains x1x2 (This last x1, wanted to stall at knees but I kept it moving and eked it out)
    1" Deficits #500x3
    1" Def #405x8

    Zerchers #225x2
    #315x1
    #365x1x2

    Bench Rows #180x10x4
    Bent Rows #220x8x4

    Shrugs #405x15x3



    Well the 15" pin pulls were slow up past the knees, but were all made, so I was happy. (When I did move to the floor, or actually the 2" defs. I was beat up and did not have a ton of power. The #545x3 was okay but slower than I wanted. I backed down then to the #515 and did a few singles with the #500 + chains to still get some rep work with weight up over #600.
    It has been 3-4 weeks now, so I gotta do some lower floor work perhaps next week and see where I stand. I could not get a feel today, since the x2's from the 15" pulls, really drained my power some.
    Passed on squats for a few zerchers.

    I wish I could say chains, deficits, bands, speeds ME's etc. etc, but I do think toro speaks the main #1 thing. Just being really determined and never never never never giving up on hard work. Pushing my body at times and then hoping it rebounds for the next session. I still have trouble pulling back when I should or hitting it harder, when I should. Pretty instinctive training. Chase someone, there ya go. I am actually somewhat small boned thin wrists and ankles. But I hate when people tell me I will never get there. Stay motivated or look for stuff that amps you. Make damn sure you are having fun, because when it gets to be work for me, my strength drops.
    Believe me, I have had my share of pains and strains and have been told by docs years ago to quit or "just keep it toned", but I seem to have a disease called, I am not enough (dangerous I know) and I am not very content for very long after a gain. The thrill IS in the chase for me. And it seems to just be chasing my own last PR. Myopic I know. But I just love getting real good and greasy beat up at this ****.

    I used to be a high rep (1 setx20's) guy and just used to love putting my ass on the floor for 5-10 minutes after every squat or dead W/O. I kinda started getting into heavier lower reps and MEish stuff over the last 5 or so years and have never looked back much.

    I think some numbers are pretty big roadblocks mentally. Once you hit them a few times they get easier to believe in.
    Deadlift voodoo, a friend of mine calls it.
