    Smokers road to 1st plm


    Thought Id start my own log to help keep track of my workouts, and post vids of my lifts so I can be critiqued.
    My 1st meet is dec.17, ill be in the 181 class.
    My weakest lift ( and embarrassing) is my squat. This is what I need to work on the most, if I'm gonna stand any type of chance of having a 900 total at the meet, which is my goal.


    Workout wed night:
    Bench 140x5
    155x5
    175x5
    Amrep 140x12

    Swiss bar bench
    125x10 for 4 sets

    Chest supported row 95x6-7 for 3 sets
    Light cable row 110x10 for 3 sets
    Rear delt work
    Tricep pushdowns

    Vids to come later. Enjoy

    Squat is unknown. My hip flexability is terrible, my left side locks up occasionally and it's painful. However, I can blame myself, as there is mobility work rob has I just don't always do it. My max squat is a weak 225.

    My bench I am happy with at this point, it's 225, which is my new pr I set 4 weeks ago.

    Deadlift is my best lift and easiest. I pulled 315 easy for a joker set last week.

    As it sits I have a 775 total. I know 900 might not be realistic, but my squat and dead continues to go up steadily so well see. I set the bar high for myself.

    I'd be very happy with it for my first meet, and also considering I didn't squat or dead until April this year. Rob has taken me under his wing and taught me to stop being an idiot and do those lifts.

    But to answer your question, I'm sure other 19 year olds would blow past a 900 total at a meet

    Looks like rep 2 went down nice. The pulls all look good to me, it's putting it down on some. Maybe some of the good bros may have a pointer about it.

    Also, who is Mikey k?

    Not bad at all bud. Your lower back may have a slight round to it but that's an easy fox. As far as lowering the weight, I was just told to push my hips way out until it's below my knees (Romanian deadlift-ish), then I can break my knees over the bar.

    Good luck man. We're all here to learn from each other

    Not bad, you and big shot bobby are mirror image of each other's technique. Completely reset after every rep. That way you have time to give yourself queues...

    Thanks bro. Yea I've been mashing my knees and that's been killin me. I did notice my round, which I will have to be more attentive too. I will try to push my hips back more, and not bend until the bar passes. And I may be milking you guys dry for info/ help. Give rob a little break

    Not claiming to be a BP expert, but I put it over my chin. Less internal rotation on the shoulders...

    Had to rush my workout today, got 2 exams tonight, and 1 in the am, and of course I'm cramming.

    S tbar row 70x10x5
    Wide grip cable row 120x10x5.
    Reverse flies 20x12x5.

    Shoulder wasn't feeling real loose so just took it extremely light with ohp.
    30 lb DBS 10x5.
    Plus I may have to bench wed now, and I'm all too cautious with me shoulders

    Did 60 band pull aparts throughout workout, still need to do 40 tonight.

    Wasn't really feeling it as my mind was elsewhere and I was rushing. Skwatz tomorrow after bio exam... Oh lawd

    I don't know why you still kick up them db's if that action has hurt your shoulder. That said you should be okay with 30s.

    Do good on your tests man.

    I don't know if you are watching...but Peyton is goat. This whole year he just seems to know what play every defense is going to do and be makes them pay for every mistake.

    Next week will be a route unless eagles get lucky...I'd say the same for 90% of the NFL though.

    Not watching, trying to make sense of this biology.

    And it will be tough for any team to beat them. However, I think the eagles offense will step up this game, as for the defense, well what can you expect? I won't be surprised if they lose, but there's always a chance. I won't write them off
