Jim's Powerlifting Training

  1. Still training. Just been a little crunched for time to log regularly with school and work.

    Going to train for the meet in March and see how things go when I get closer to that time. May take another stab as a 165, may just compete 181. Depends on where I am strength/bodyweight wise when the time comes.

    Currently hold the 9th ranked squat for professional classic raw as an open 165 in the RPS, so that is kind of cool. My 3rd attempt would have put me at #7 if I had gotten to finish it out.

    My daughter got a bit spooked at how quick March was coming up. So she asked if we could do the one after that. I guess it is in June but didn't see it on the RPS site. So that is the new plan, she said she wants to be solid before she competes and I agree. Will give me a little more time to focus on growth, and maybe even start leaning up a little for the meet if I want. Just depends on condition at the time, the BB contest I have planned is Nov 3rd so a pretty good time to start my BB prep after the Meet. So that is up in the air but I am only doing the meet to do it with her. Otherwise I will focus on my physique.

    I don't see a June meet on the ASF evenr calendar yet either. I will keep an eye on it. Just let me know if your plans change. We may compete in March anyway, but Beverly would prefer to compete with you guys whenever you go. Summer usually works better for us anyway, so it wouldn't be a problem for us to compete then.

    Even better, I am used to them having one quarterly so I figure it will show up soon. I hope so anyway. Had a great time with you all last time!

    Yeah, still training 4-5x a week. I have just been slammed with work and school. Usually train right before heading to work, so I don't have time to update much.

  7. Did something to my bum knee on Saturday during box squat (DE). Sharp pain at lockout. Has been sore since. Will probably not squat tomorrow and will probably pull instead.

    It is getting better just had my 2nd chiro visit, he said my hip position had improved by a good 1/4 inch this time and that one more next week might d the trick. It pinches more in the morning after lying in odd positions I think.

  12. I wish the dude still posted around here. I am thinking about getting a singe ply suit (or some briefs) to help protect the hips on some of my squat days, but I don't know which ones are worth the money.

    Any ideas? @jswain34 @Rodja @Sean1332 @Hyde

  13. I personally have no clue, but I just pmd you. Im thinking about getting a pair of loose briefs just to help my hips stay healthy and happy.

    Also, I have time to type this because I am sitting on the highway because my car just broke down. I think a lifter failed. Not sure tbh. It has been a tough year for my cars.

  17. You in the Goat? Or do you still have that GN?

    Iím still weak too, trying to get some momentum long enough to get my squat up. I think I just need to get heavy for a few years lol

    Girlfriend is competing at Worlds Strongest Woman this weekend in the first ever year with a light class! I am seriously angling to go to dinner with Clint Darden, heís competing in the Masters WSM.

    This year has been no good for cars for me. I still have the GN, but it started having tranny issues earlier this year. Then my one GTO flooded in the hurricane, and now the engine has gone on the DD. It is pouring oil, so it isn't a lifter. *sigh*


    I wasn't sure if Darden was going to make it tbh. I know he was having issues with a sponsor dropping him right before the event. My squat is the only lift that has been consistently good. I probably need to do the same though lol. I hope she does well, man.

  19. Sorry to hear about the car issues!!! That sucks!

  20. Got my shirt autographed by Clint! Had dinner with Nick Best, who is just the most awesome humble dude. Never thought Iíd be sitting with him and his wife at an Outback Steakhouse.



    Big Z won the show, of course - dude makes EVERYONE look small!



    Gf took 4th out of 27 in Lightweight 141 WSW. Winning the truckpull and taking 2nd on stone series in the finals on day 2 brought her just shy of the podium. You would have seriously enjoyed it, JB - some great strongman action.

    Damn man, that is awesome! I wish I could have made the trip. I hear the show ran really smoothly too, and meeting Big Z would have been dope.

    I tried to keep up with the standings on SS. I heard there were some big ass stone loads from the ladies out there. Heavy ass log pressin' too.

    What is the GF's next step from here?

  22. That sounds awesome and @Hyde you are looking big and beefy brother!!! Congrats to the lady for a good showing!

    Yeah Donna Moore was insane on stones in the finals against Kristin Rhodes; I highly recommend you check out the Official Strongman Games on Youtube to peep the ends of some of the events - they put the entire live feed they recorded, both day 1 and 2, on there for free. You can just skip around to find the good stuff.

    Kristin pressed a huge 265 log and Samantha Colemanís giant ass pressed an all-time world record of 270. Z, Blekaitis, and amateur Brian Fletcher hit 425 logs.

    Jessica is an alternate for the Rogue Pro Show at the Arnold this year but she wants to compete at WSW again as a Lightweight next year so we are only planning on going to watch (sheís already a Lightweight Pro and didnít do any qualifiers for Middleweight Amateur).

    Sheís going to go do a little fun amateur show in KY as a middle on 01/06, which should qualify her for middleweight Nationals if she wants this fall if no other pro shows pop up, but I suspect they will. Right now itís just get stronger and keep weight around 160.

  24. Looking good bro! Congrats to the GF... and Merry Christmas to you both!

  25. Hello, all.

    Just a brief training update for now. Bumping the volume up for the foreseeable future. Will be at 6x a week for as long as I can stand. New semester starts on the 16th, so we will see how long I can keep that up.


    Gonna be:

    Sun - ME Bench (Floor or Pin Press), then Chest/Tri (typical old school bb style)

    Mon - Back/Bi (3-4 exercise, vertical pulling)

    Tue - ME Squat, DE Deads, Hamstrings/Abs

    Wed - Rest

    Thu - DE Upper, Shoulders/Tri

    Fri - Back/Bi (3-4 exercises, horizontal pulls)

    Sat - DE Squat, Quads/Abs

    Extra - planning to run/cardio two times a week (or more); once for time and once for distance. I may also do 1-2 more ab workouts during the week.

    Nothing crazy. Just focusing my assistance a little more to fit some volume and build some muscle. Will keep trying to gain weight for a while longer (at 180 today), and then I will cut for a meet in the spring/summer.


    Putting a lot of though into trying to enroll in ROTC when I transfer in the fall. If I can, that will change my goals some as I will need to be in "Army" shape, whilst still trying to get strong.
