  1. 7/23 DE Bench


    Bench
    135x6
    135x3
    [email protected]#
    [email protected]# (Speed was as good as it was at 165.)
    [email protected]# (Again, speed was identical to 165, I might bump up my DE day weight to 4 sets of 175 and 4 sets of 185, as long as my speed remains the same.)

    135x12

    It was a good night. My speed and technique is good. I need to work on incorporating more leg drive into my benching, but I know that will come with practice and time. So, overall, I can't complain because it appears as if everything is coming along nicely.

  2. Talking New Gym! Woot!


    I just found a new gym that I joined tonight. I found it listed at powerlifting watch and it was about 20 minutes. I now lift at Van's Gym in Baytown and tomorrow night is my last night at 24 Hour Fitness. It's a nice mom and pop set up. There's a couple racks(they're kinda narrow, but they work). I saw some DL platforms to do pulls off blocks. Saw they had a dry-erase board with meet totals for 6 lifters. I'm going to try to meet them and try to get in with them to train. Now, on to the training:

    Arched GMs (wide stance)
    45x12
    135x8
    225x5
    315x5
    365x5 (5 RM PR)

    45 Hypers

    135x15
    135x15

    Standing Abs
    30x15
    50x15
    50x15

    Good night tonight and I got to use chalk for the first time in forever. Can't wait to lift here more often, it's a bit out of the way, but if tonight is any indicator, it'll be worth it.

    Good night of lifting, but the rest of the night could've been better. I ended up getting a flat tire on the way back home from the gym and I'm heading tomorrow to buy new tires...I can hardly wait. and I'm off to bed.
  5. 8/4 ME Bench


    Meant to post this last night, but my internet was being stupid.

    Floor Presses
    45x8
    135x8
    135x5
    225x5 (5RM)
    275x1 (1RM)

    The floor presses kicked my ass. Just gotta get in the groove of them. I've got two more weeks of them, so hopefully the weight will go up a bit. We'll see.

    Got another PR, So I can't complain. I squat on a bench with a foam pad, so I sink in a bit when I squat down onto it. I did my single with 515 and I thought about it and said, "I think I've got one more rep in me." So I tossed on two more tens, cranked up the metal and went down and up with it and I didn't struggle until about 1/2 to 2/3 of the way up, but I locked it out. So it was a good night overall.

    Got a PR tonight on floor presses. It stuck about halfway up, but I kept pressing and locked it out. I was pretty stoked because 275 damn near killed me last week. I tried the cambered bar, and while I like the increased ROM, it was just awkward. I might go back to regular close grips next week or most likely switch to JM Presses. I did tate presses because I didn't feel a whole lot of work in my tris. All in all it was a productive evening. Now all I need to do is get a vid of my ME Squat day and I'll be set.

    It was a good night tonight at the gym. I did end up getting a video of my last set of box squats, but it was at a ****ty angle and all you can really see is me coming up and down with it from about shoulder up. 545 was good until about halfway up, I released my air too soon and damn near got pinned, but I pushed through it and got the PR. I've been slacking on my speed work and it shows. Time to get my ass in gear and get back to doing my DE days because on Squat and Bench, I seem to be stalling halfway up, which isn't acceptable. So I know what I need to work on.

    Here's the vid of my lift, you can't really see much, but I figured I'd put it up anyway: [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mb1KLL0pnEE"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]

    It was a good night, I got another PR and everything else seems to be going well. All of my bench presses seem to be sticking about halfway up, but then I work through the sticking point. I know I need to focus on top end and speed work, does anyone else have any input?

    It felt good to pull again and I'm a bit stronger than I remember. Of course, this just means I can lockout 515, it's gonna take a bit more work to get to a point where I can pull it off the floor( I need to get faster ). Had a guy at the gym ask me if I was training for competition. I said I was, but my meet isn't until next june. He said I was pretty strong, I said thanks, but for guys my size (~260ish) it's not all that impressive...at least to me anyway because I know I have a long way to go to be competitive. :dl:

    Ok night tonight. I was kinda tired, hence the reason I didn''t go for a PR (although, I wish I would have done one more rep with 275). Inclines took a while, so I was kinda in a hurry to get stuff done so I wouldn't be in there over an hour. All in all, a good night, but definitely could have done better. Oh well, on to next week.

  12. Been following along. Great log bro. Thanks for posting it.

    Thanks BP, I'm just trying to make steady progress. I've come a long way since May, but I still have a long way to go. I'm eyeing a meet or two next year, so I'm trying to get as strong as I can before I add equipment. I guess it seems to be working, but my bench definitely needs work.

  14. i like your philososphy of getting strong b4 adding equipment, alot of people make the mistake of not doing so, or are just too damned lazy! good job UH

    Thanks PH. I know that I still have a ways to go training-wise and I'd like to build up my ligament and tendon strength before I dive head-first into gear. Plus, for the equipment I want to buy, my technique needs some more refinement and I need to get stronger, so I can work the suits and not vice versa. That and I can't really afford to buy any equipment at the moment because money is kinda tight.

  16. I've been following ur log. Looking good. Hey I see u from houston what gym are u training at?

    I'm training at Van's Gym in Baytown at the moment. I found it under the powerlifting friendly gym listing on powerliftingwatch.com.
  18. 9/4 - ME Squat


    Well, I'm back again. I took a week off last week because I was having some back spasms that made working out nearly impossible. Well, the week off did me good and now I'm going right back into it. It was a good day today and it was nice to get back to the gym.

    Good night I guess, I'm still stalling about half way on max attempts, which means I need more speed off the bottom. The two singles at the end went up pretty quick after I made a conscious effort to press fast. Overall, a good night...but I've got work to do.

    Good night tonight. Getting the feel for the weight before I go for a PR next week. My goal is to box squat 600 or better before the end of the year before I add equipment. Although I might by a pair of cheap briefs to protect my hips on DE day here in the next few weeks.

    So close to 300 I can taste it...pissed me off because I couldn't keep my form. My triceps, speed, and form need a hell of a lot of work...Gotta get all those down before I even think about touching the KK DD that I'm thinking about getting.

  22. Damn bro ur logs looking good. Man u'll be hittin tha 300 in no time. I just wish my squat was as good as urs. Awesome squats man.

    Thanks GP, I do hope to hit 300 soon. I guess I have a mechanical advantage in the squats though. I'm only 5'6", so I guess squatting came a bit easier to me moreso than the bench, it just felt more natural. The DL is in the middle, but needs work as well. I think I'll be doing speed deads on my DE day, and focusing on squats and GMs on ME day, with the occasional rack pull every 3-4 weeks. Things are moving along alright, just need to hammer my bench to get everything where it needs to be.

    Day went alright for the most part. My speed on the deads were better with the conventional stance moreso than the sumo stance. I'm not sure what the best stance for me is because I have a longer torso for my size (5'6"). Good day, but I still need more work.

    Good night tonight, got a 20# PR on the Box Squats (and yes I have video ). After the GMs my lower back was fried, so I did my abs and headed out. One step closer to my goal of box squatting 600 before the end of the year, and a lot closer to 600 than I thought I was. And I'm out.

    Okay night tonight. I hit my 3 lifts above 90%, but I think I went to the well one too many times with Close Grip Bench. Oh well, live and learn, I'll most likely switch to either floor presses, 3 board presses, or a variation thereof next week. I thought about doing Reverse Band Benches, but all I have are minis, so I'm not sure how that would work out.

    Seems as if I'm all squat and no bench. Definitely gotta fix that.
