Hehe... Funny thing is I'm trying to trim down a bit right now. Nothing major, it's actually been really easy - I'm eating around 3500 cals on workout days and I've lost like one pound in a month, but my waist has gone down over an inch.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
I am just really sick of having these big love handles, and I figure it'll be a good opportunity to try the 242lb class for a while. I'll be moving back up to the 275lb class eventually though because I like being scary big.
04-18-2006, 12:54 PM
down an inch and only 1lb? that's bad ass brutha. last year, 1" for me was ~10lbs. love handles, same place i hold my fat at too, and the only place, visible anyway. **** it, maybe i'll hit the 242's with ya. what are you at now, morning weight?
04-18-2006, 05:59 PM
Edit: I should also note that I had a layoff of about 2.5 months and I've been back at it for about the same amount of time so that probably has a lot to do with the nice recomp I'm seeing.

cool beans. i'm right around 266 or so in the morning, i'll catch up with ya

i'm going to hijack here for a second beelze, but exnihilo you posted a link on here to ia's board about a year ago, and i ended up going over there, talking to exmgq, started powerlifting and have been hooked ever since. just wanted to say thanks in a odd about way.Originally Posted by exnihilo

Damn, I feel like a child compared to you guys. I was super pumped to hit 200. I've come 80 lbs since I started working out, but reading these threads makes me realize I have so much more to go before I am adequate.
04-19-2006, 07:35 AM
i'm going to go train with a guy next weekend that just barely missed 805 off a 1 board, imagine how i feelOriginally Posted by ktw

LOL, awesome guyfromkop2. Powerlifting is a great sport... I hope to compete again soon. It's really humbling lifting with my bros over here too, one of my training partners has hit 644 in a single ply shirt at 242lb bodyweight, another one holds the world record in juniors bench press. Sometimes I train at my school gym and I always leave there feeling like a total freak though
04-19-2006, 01:09 PM
yea i hope to start competing soon, i have to iron out a few wrinkles and get my numbers up a little bit more and i'll be stepping out. and i'm going to train with a guy next weekend that hits 8's in a shirted bench, he's going to show me a thing or 2 about a shirted workout, talk about a humbling experienceOriginally Posted by exnihilo

guy, i guess that's why he's deading in the 800's and we're not, lol.
04-20-2006, 09:47 PM

It's my goal to someday hit a 600lb good morning That'd be fooking sick.
04-21-2006, 06:15 AM
ex, i remember quite a while ago you had said something about 'no need to do deads regularly and they kept going up'. is that still working out for you? hoping that doing hypers and good mornings will shoot my dead up without doing em. everytime i do them on a regular basis, something goes wrong. what say you?
04-21-2006, 08:10 AM
beelze you've really gotta find a way to start doing GHR .. nothing has helped my dead and squat more
does your gym have a seated calf raise with a fairly large seat?
04-21-2006, 10:58 AM
After Glen told me about those I do them all the time. To make it even higher off the ground I add 2 cardio step things on top of the seat.
04-21-2006, 11:48 AM
with ghrs they get harder when your feet go up higher than your knees.
04-21-2006, 12:01 PM
The fact that you have problems with deadlifts and getting injured just means you have a weak core bro. No other cause... Do more hardcore ab/core work such as extreme incline situps with heavy ass dumbells for low reps (you should be able to do these with a 50lb dumbell for at least 10 reps, a 60 or 70lb dumbell would be even better). Also, situps on a swiss ball with a 45lb plate for 20-30 reps, russian twists with a 45lb plate or a heavy ass dumbell and side bends with a heavy ass dumbell (ideally 100-140lbs for 10+ reps).Originally Posted by Beelzebub
Edit: yeah you do good mornings, lol. not awake yet
Truthfully though, deadlifts are an exercise you can do maybe once a month and still make decent progress, esp if you do box squats and good mornings.
04-21-2006, 12:04 PM
exnihilo hit the nail on the head. when i started training with exmgq he said we're going to hit your posterior and abs hard, 2xs a week, if you have a weak core then everything else suffers.

4/21 - chest/delts/tri's/back
well, not quite all that....
(2) 40's x 10

90's x 8
125's x 5
175's x 1.....pull (awesome, doesn't even phase me anymore, damn near funny, going for the record this year)
04-21-2006, 04:38 PM
time for a bionic chest buddy
04-21-2006, 05:22 PM
eh, at least i get stronger between each injury.
04-22-2006, 04:39 PM
must be a very minor pull. was able to do a 45 degree pushup this morning which took me over a week last time. may switch back to some TUT pec training from now on though.
04-22-2006, 05:49 PM
I wish you a speedy recovery in any event lil' buddy.
04-22-2006, 07:17 PM
beelze, ever go to a doctor about it?
04-22-2006, 10:48 PM
PCT Ubiquitos, lol.
guy, no docs required to tell me i have a pull. i should have gone for the first injury in 2003 but didn't. i was out of commission for 3 months with that one, i suspect it was a minor tear. this one isn't serious at all. something about my chest that doesn't like heavy weight.
04-22-2006, 11:24 PM
maybe it just doesn't like constant PR's and repping out big weight to a freakish degree, brobro.
Alas, who am I but an emotionally chaotic bundle of sporadic thoughts and fluctuating hormones. I need my blankie.
ps true GHR's are gnarly hammy obliterators. Tried 'em for my first time today.
04-23-2006, 08:50 AM
well, yeah, that could be it too but it'll just have to adjust cuz it ain't gettin' lighter any time soon. you'll be ok bro, sounds like clomid is taking over, lol. yeah, i've seen those GHR's, they look badass but our gym just doesn't have em. perhaps, i can conjure up some sort of invention with ducttape and broomsticks again.Originally Posted by Ubiquitous

all you need is a seated calf machine with a big seat for GHRs
