Chasing the Dream!

  1. Legs and Bi's:

    Needed to figure out my opening weight ideas and lifting cues for the strict curl so I started with that tonight with someone thats been there before.

    160x1
    165x1 Super easy pull and finish at the top, Got so freaking hype!!!!
    170x0 Couldnt pull above my navel. Hated setting it back down
    170x spotted /received a bump past my sticking point at the bottom and dragged that thing on up. Def. feels like a huge jump but still got time to take the state record at it

    Back Squat:
    135x5
    225x5
    275x5
    315x3
    365x2
    405x1
    435x1 Felt a bump from my spotter at the bottom, he says he only gave me a Lat squeeze but I went ahead and racked it and unloaded.

    Overhead Squats:
    45x10
    45x10
    45x10

  2. Well this short lived bulk up is over officially still pressing the recomp and will be dropping my weight down to compete in the 220 class to start off my powerlifting attempts. Looking to do a meet on Jan 25th if all goes well and nothing happens in-between but if I dont go ahead and do it now I wont do it ever so BAM!!! Hats been thrown in the ring!

    Still pressing the re-comp as I want to do a BB show this summer. My goals of being CSCS certified will only broaden as I still want to be as competitive as possible and take advantage of everything in front of me.

    Idea of where im at currently



    Looking like an idiot but we all start somewhere

  3. Name:  Cutting Stack.jpg
Views: 96
Size:  120.5 KB

    Current Stack includes Banish and Exile stack from American Muscle liking it so far.

    EBF Products are in the mix as well and I must say Im liking what Im getting so far from it but the Metabolic Powder PWO started off killing my stomach, tried it today and was so glad the effect didnt hit me as I was leg day lls

    Forskolin-95 hasnt been incorporated yet thinking of putting it with my Alphamine when it comes in.

    Shift is just sitting on the sideline ATM, dont feel it would help me much as an addition ATM but I could be wrong

    Methyl-Synephrine just terrifies me In all Honesty. Its reviewed effects and how and when to use throws me as I dont want to be taking too much at a time on an empty stomach but just havent heard enough about it to understand just what this Beta-2 Agonist does in addition to what I am already running. Was shocked to see it in Exile already withing the Neuro-Metabolic Matrix made up of a blend at 153mgs.

    Got some Leucine, Milk Thistle, and Orange Triad on deck as well

    Waiting on a killer combo package from USPlabs still as well with plenty of goodies to add in, Looking forward to running PRIME again with the 6/9 protocol.

  4. Todays Leg Day was rather sweet and felt great. Moved some decent weight until I got a pinch in my hip but It didnt last long after backing off a bit.

    Single Leg Smith Deads: Focus placed on the hinge and hamstring kept the weight rather light
    Smith Bar=20lbs
    Barx15
    110x15
    205x12

    Smith Deads:
    295x8
    335x8
    385x6
    385x6
    435x3
    435x3
    435x1

    Inverted Leg Press:
    205x10
    295x10
    335x10

    Front Squats:
    135x8
    135x8
    225x6 got a mean pinch towards the middle of my thrust up....damn that thing was burning
    135x8
    135x8

    Walking Lunges: Pain dissipated
    3 laps arond the track

    SWB Ham Curls:
    x12
    x12
    x12

    Wanted to do Biceps but ice was still falling so I went ahead and cut out. Poked around a bit with my Jackknobber and found nothing in the area that had pained me, will get it rechecked at work on Mon though as I cant afford any setbacks now

  5. Gotta find an awesome singlet. Pretty sure my walmart wrist wraps are still ok, may pickup some knee sleeves pretty soon as well as the swelling issues with a deeper squat are just unavoidable atm

  6. liftinglarge . com is a good website for cheap gear.

    Your lifts are looking great man. Dunno about that smith machine stuff, but I'm digging everything else lol. Dat bench doe, I wish I could move that kinda weight pressing. One day, grasshopper, one day...

    I like my Titan knee sleeves to keep my knees healthy and warm, I've heard good things about the elitefts ones too though. The Titan ones are a little expensive, but worth it. If you want extra support, order a size smaller than the chart... they're still easy to get on.

    Thanks man, sadly my greatest obstacle is myself atm. Also I hate using the smith as my primary but our local Ballerina had the squat rack on lockdown today. I only didnt mind as seeing her workouts time and time again she supersets and keeps the pace going. Ive blocked the rack from her so my day was due sooner or later.

    My bench is luck so far I still look at it as my weakest point atm in terms of growth.

    Im guess the single ply is acceptable for RAW comps right?

    Single ply knee sleeves? Should be, although I think it's limited to neoprene/non assistive material. If you're talking single ply shirts or squat suits, no. It should say if they're accepted in most raw feds on the sleeve sale page, though some raw don't allow sleeves or wraps.

    315x4 Pause on 1st
    335x3 Pause on 1st
    355x3 Pause on 1st
    385x1
    405x2 1st one was ugly no pause I panicked lol, went back for a Negative rep following

    Smith Floor Press:
    did 5 total working sets with 305 for 8 reps

    Db Floor Press:
    110x5 Odd as It was my 1st time using this weight and style
    110x7
    110x8

    Floor Press with the Dbs are fun, not a huge of a contraction as with the smith from the floor but theres just alot my stabilization going on so some focus is taken away. Will keep using both for awhile.

    Had to go to work right after but decent hitting session

    Tuesdays Back day was okish but nothing special. had my back needled prior so I did go too crazy

    You just need to focus on transitions and holding each pose at peak contraction. A few things I noticed:

    - Your back is thick, but not especially wide, at least not the way you're posing. You have very low lat insertions, so you could have a phenomenal lat spread.
    - Your delts need to be brought up a tad; your tris and bis dominate your arms.
    - When you hit a pose, keep your head up and look into the audience or camera or whatever. Don't look at your muscles. If you start practicing this now, it should become second nature later.

    I'm no expert, by any means, just an enthusiast. Keep up the good work man, you're killing it.

    Thanks man!

    I honestly took my shoulder training down about 3 notches as a whole to put so much emphasis on my back and now its just like you said laggy. Will begin taking their routine much more serious soon. If im walking normally my lats sit outward to the point that ppl constantly notice them but I cant flex them for crap lol. One of these days this physique will be seeing the stage but still plenty of work left to do

  17. MMan ol mn the day ive been dreading forever has finally come, decided that I was going to do cleans today and def. strained my back on one of my catches. Shame my knee just happen to buckle forward and i didnt bail on the weight so thus I hyperextend and Lawd its tight. Hopefully I can get it worked out in a few days but It does really blow me. Luckly I was able to finish off my Back and shoulder day fighting on through will know more tomorrow as Im icing and using TENs now. Too far in this journey to start slacking now and I refuse to be denied a DAMN THING

  20. Its sick the way ive abandoned this thread but its the holidays lls,

    S/N: Almost to the end of the AM stack and the ride has been freaking awesome! Seriously just a little bit of cardio (2 days) and decent eating (carb cycling attempt) and the recomp effects are noticeable. Im using it at full dosage and added in Forskolin-95 and I couldn't be happier. Metabolic powder bothers my stomach a bit but I use it post-workout to not throw off my day. Backs feeling great and back to squatting and deadlifting moderately. Cant wait for the New Year and a new Log

    What's a Jefferson squat? I've heard of Jefferson deadlifts. Been thinking about incorporating them in my routine to take some strain off my lower back.

    Log's looking good, man. Keep motivated, keep killing it. 335 for 6 on squat is good ****.

    thanks man, its been a long time coming lol, and i think they may be the same thing in idea as YouTube vids showed them being the same. The Jefferson squat I try to incorporate is from Kai Greene and CJ. Its really helping me over time get my hips better
