  1. Hyde’s Strength Odyssey


    Well, I’ve been a member on this board for more than half a decade at this point, so it struck me as a good idea to start logging some training here. I can’t promise you where this log is going, and I’m telling you now life will get mixed in some with the numbers, but it should be a fun ride! This isn’t a sponsored log - this is the tale of my wandering strength journey, wherever it leads: through the valleys of injury to the summits of personal victory, and all the long, winding road in between.

    About me: 27, 5’10”, 230lbs, ~25% bf?

    Been training seriously for 7 years now, zero athletic background, and have had a love for strength and lifting heavy since the first time I maxed out. Primarily focused on powerlifting the last 5 years, with the last year moving into more general strength training as I took up with a crew of strongmen.

    Best lifts: 518 Squat w/ Sleeves, 336 Bench, 628 Deadlift, 235 Overhead

    I should mention that I am in the process of leaning down to get some fat off. I don’t have a fixed body fat % in mind but I need to lose 20 lbs at least

    I’m at a point in my life where if I’m ever going to be something like 250-265 I need to get at it, because I’m not going to want to be that heavy in my late 40s. And I’m fat enough now that if I just push my body weight up I’m going to just accrue way too much fat (I’m basically as fat as I can stand now). I need to clean the slate some.

    Agree. From his original post I thought he became “thick in the midsection” but no, he still has that V look.

    Those shoulders of his are going to look ridiculous when he leans up... I think I might be jealous!

    Chad Coy lead our training group for the last year until he just moved, and he was a profound mentor. His philosophies on warmups have definitely helped.

    General warmup->Dynamic Stretching->Neural Activation->Specific warmups->Work sets

    You don’t get to 4th place in Masters WSM without taking your warmups seriously.

    Amazing what a couple years of basics focusing on progression will do.

  22. Where'd chad move off to? And how long would you say your general warmup to work set #1 takes, roughly?

    Doesn't look weak with the weight you have overhead in the picture above! Yeah those good warm ups are key. I have to get back into doing better about my warm ups. I do the General Warm Up and Specific Warm ups, but have been slacking a lot on the Dynamic stretching and Neural activation.

    I think that happened almost as soon as I started focusing back on size instead of performance goals... Now I want to perform better and just have a nice aesthetic look. So it is time to start taking care of things more than just trying to make them look better. I need to start doing the warm up I was doing back then and also foam rolling my tight areas before training again.

  24. Always, always have neural activations (well since I read “The Gift of Injury”) and specific activation before lifting. It’s really been the primary driver to staying healthy!
