  1. Swanson's Penultimate 5/3/1 Powerlifting Log...for real


    I deleted the last abortion of a log because it was a total disaster. I'll link my first AM log so everyone can see what I'm about in case the 5 people who follow don't already know.

    I'm starting at the bottom, after having a couple injuries (L4-S1 herniations, left shoulder impingement and SLAP lesion) which really set my training back. I sought PT for all 3 injuries, opting to avoid the lengthy recovery time that surgery typically requires. After a solid 8 weeks of PT and light training, I feel like I'm ready to start training seriously again.

    I'm going to preface all of this by saying I am WEAK. I mean OHP 135 on my 5 days weak. Squatting with a true max of 400 weak. I'm fully embarrassed by that, but it is what it is. If it were easy to be strong, everyone would be. For purposes of my training, I'm going to start my 5/3/1 like this;

    OHP-185
    Bench-325
    Squat-400
    Deadlift-500

    I could go to the gym right now and hit those numbers, so I'll start there and jump more in between cycles (I know, I know, leave me alone) if it's necessary. I'm going to hammer hip mobility and go back to pulling sumo, but will pull convo on squat day as an assistance movement. I'm still working on which assistance template to use, so I'll work on that today. Conditioning will be basketball, tires, prowler and sprints. Maybe some early AM LISS treadmill to help get me loosened up as well. I can't just hop out of bed and hit the Prowler like my kids can.

    As I have indicated, I suffer from crippling paralysis by analysis. I change goals, diet, training on a regular basis because I think some other way will be more optimal. I ask you, loyal reader, to help me with this. Keep my ass on track with 5/3/1. When I say I want to change diet to lose weight, tell me to do more conditioning and keep eating. DO NOT LET ME CHANGE MY PATH, BASTARDS!!

    I'll be sticking to mostly whole food stuff, with only minor supplementation. I use an intra mix with some Karboload mixed in, but other than that I'll eat. PWO? Eat. Pre? Eat. That's it. Also still on TRT @ 50mg E4D...I wish I could up that, but I get brutal headaches and other unfortunate sides when my total test climbs above about 900. Just not worth it to me.

    Feel free to post suggestions for me to ignore or ridicule, nudes if you have them, food pron, or whatever else strikes your fancy. I will undoubtedly post unpopular opinions, disgusting and sexual references, among other offensive things.


  2. Subbed. Again.

    From what I've seen with you, the diet is what you speak of most and seems to change the most. For the most part, aside from your injuries, your training stayed consistent. So...just train, and eat. Don't **** around with any fancy diet, depriving yourself so badly that you want to say "**** this diet" Just have fun!

    You ain't neva lie.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  4. Great write up on the "knees out" squat debate;

  5. Subbed! I tried not torquing as much today on my squats, swayed by JTS. I didn't die, so I'll check the "So far, so good" box. Let's make it happen, big man. Condition your face off! It will reap huge dividends.

  6. It's funny because I can't squat without pushing my knees out while spreading the floor. I get no glute activating and I fall forward. Also my squats are a mile high if I dont do that. Meh.

    And welcome back, Swanson.

  7. Thanks for following again. Just need the old man, the jimAngry, the Bengal, Rob math and the paratrooper to complete this nonsense.

    I'm going to Skwat WITH VIDEO tomorrow! Whoop!
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  8. Really got after it today; did 2x agile 8 sessions (AM & PM), PVC rolled & LAX ball mashed, and did 45' LISS @ 130 hr.

    Sourced some 700# tires as well, so I'll have them ~700, 600, 500, 400 and 2 @ 250. That could be a little puke-inducing medley.

    In Swanson!


    I push the knees out, but I come out of the hole best with them in line with the feet or just out. Nothing excessive. I am a huge fan of Camp Kelly(listen to his appearance on Mark Bell's Podcast). His goals are on a whole new level stemming to people world wide with aspirations of even fixing healthcare(again hear the podcast, it makes sense).

    That said I also believe every thing isn't for everybody for a litany of reasons.

  14. Bengal checking in! Stoked you're back to training big man.



  15. If you're not eating this, you're fully missing out. I stole it from John Meadows, but cream of rice + shake about an hour prior to training is GRRRRREAT.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  16. Oh ****, I never thought about using cream of rice before. I'm not a huge rice fan (don't tell my gf that!) but it's more of a texture/effort required to eat it rather than flavor or anything else. This could be the ticket.

    As of now, carb sources are primarily fruits, lactose, and pop tarts. Frosted wheaties make an appearance every now and then, but I don't think they're too bad. Not exactly a clean source of carbs, but not too bad for a sugary food.

  17. Get on the cream of rice train, my friend. I love it, and it's less heavy to me than oatmeal. Grits and oatmeal can kind of bloat me up, but this stuff is pure perfection for mah belly.

    Oh yeah, I do oatmeal, too, PWO. I like it, though.

    LOL, read my log (which will take all of 5 minutes, as it's just begun) and you will understand the irony of your remark, big guy!

    And you will never get judgment in this regard out of me in any event. Only support and well-intended, constructive advice, when appropriate.

    In any event, your rehab strength is pretty equivalent to my outright strength, based on a brief glimpse through your log. But as you soon will learn, I am stuck in perennial rehab, so unlike yours, my max numbers will not be improving.

    Respect.

    Perhaps a moment of misguided candor, but I will say, I paused a few times, thinking you are a little cocksure. But then it was revealed to me that you are quite young, much younger than I inferred based on the manner in which you express yourself, and it suddenly all made sense.

    You're a bright young man. And nothing wrong with being young and cocky. Add some AAS, and you may lose the "y" though, lol. Just playing with you bro. Keep up the good work. I am enjoying your posts.

  27. Back injury set me back about 50% further than I had estimated. Couple of **** vids and update coming...it's fawking pathetic fellas.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.

  28. There's nothing pathetic about getting back in the gym after an injury.

    But you, you're pathetic! (I did say I would pass judgement, didn't I?)

    This. You haven't hung up your belt yet, Swanson, and that's something you should be proud to hang your hat on.

    To recap: Hang your hat, don't hang your belt.
