  2. grumble grumble good mornings grumble hard grumble .. ugh the big bald guy's right ...

  3. But then again Glen, Beelze also feels that Huey Lewis and the News is the greatest band ever.... so...

  8. Glenny,
    You sound like you are back in the swing of things Buddy! I am very happy for you. I too have bench pressing issues as it is my weakest lift. I can lift heavier, but it becomes dangerous to my shoulder at a certain point, so you are not alone on that on man. Keep up the good bro!

  9. Your BB rows are strong like bull.... you have much english on those? lol

  10. thanks ubi .. and i swear i actually keep really strict form on those .. i'm a nazi with form on all my exercises

  11. It's in the bedroom where you are a little more lenient with form I hear.

    my BB rows are weak. My lower back is my achilles heel... From now on I am focusing on my weak points.

  17. I was wondering where my little pumpkin was... Heavy Deads and your hybrid Westside/Glenification taxed your CNS huh? I slept all weekend.. methinks I may be on the verge myself.

  18. So maybe increased rest and less freqent workouts will be needed with this kind of program?

  22. looking strong as usual my friend. Raw squats in the hizzy!

    hacks without wraps too? Hacks wreak havoc on my knees if I don't use wraps at that weight.

    nice deads!

  24. thanks blackheart

    ubi .. my knees somehow never bother me on hacks .. i place my feet about shoulder width apart fairly high up on the platform and put all the weight on the outside of both feet .. i do this with squats as well except i'm definitely wider than shoulder width .. i feel placing the weight on the outside of my feet as opposed to the balls or the heels really helps my knees out

  25. 10/18

    chest - flat BB press
    245 - 10
    265 - 7
    275 - 5

    back thickness - chest supported rows
    3 plates - 10
    4 plates - 8
    5 plates - 6

    back width - reverse grip close grip pulldowns
    210 - 10
    220 - 8
    230 - 6

    tris - double handed overhead ext
    95 - 10
    100 - 10
    105 - 9

    i could easily do more weight with the overhead ext but my elbows really start to hurt

    my bench still kinda sucks but i just need to get used to barbell pressing again .. hopefully it will start to improve

  26. didn't get around to posting friday's workout

    DE squats
    245 x 2 x 12

    You do realize you do more than 80% of the populace, regardless.. right? Pretty good in my eyes.

    I think I may have to try these.

    strong workout.

  29. thanks Ubi ... i just get frustrated over my flat BB press because i know i should be doing more just based on my DB presses

    as for the tate presses they're great as its are basically the only tri exercise that doesn't kill my elbows

  30. 10/25

    Max effort deadlifts
    225 - 5
    315 - 3
    405 - 3
    455 - 3
    495 - 1
    555 - failed ... in retrospect i should have thrown in 365 for 3 and only done 455 for 1 .. oh well

    bis - preacher curls
    45's on either side - 10
    50's - 7
    55 - 4

    hams - leg curls
    2 plates - 10
    3 plates - 8
    4 plates - 3 .. got really heavy really quickly haha

    hack squats
    3 plates - 10
    4 plates - 12
    5 plates - 12

  31. You have some strong ass hack squats my friend.

    You'll pull 600 by christmas.

  32. strong work brutha. you've got 555 no problem, just have to work on your warmups and quit tiring yourself out. even leprechauns get tired.

    if you like some help with a peaking program, let me know. IMO, you won't hit 600 this go round until you start over and work your way back up. then, smoke show.

  33. Nice pull Glen. I would have done the same thing you suggested:

    225 x 3
    365 x 1
    455 x 1
    555 x 1

    I think with Deads it is all about the weight acclimation in so far as your body needs a warmup not in quantity, but simply to the weight you are gonna rip off. Believe man, if I can pull a 575, you should be doing 800, raw, with one hand, while blowing a kiss to Beelze

  34. thanks for the encourgement guys!

    beelze i'd be very interested in seeing this program of yours

    didn't lift on friday as i left to go out of town fairly early in the morning so i picked up today

    10/30

    chest - incline DB press - haven't done any incline pressing in quite some time
    100's - 10
    110's - 7
    115's - 6

    back thickness - BB rows
    275 - 10
    295 - 8
    315 - 7 .. hell yeah

    back width - wide grip pull ups
    BW - 10
    BW - 9
    BW - 7

    tris - double handed overhead ext.
    100 - 10
    105 - 9
    110 - 8

    good work out today

  35. strong work brutha. as for the deads, cut it back to 75% of 1RM- do a max set - and each dead day, increase by 5%. there's several ways to skin this cat but that one has worked best for me. it's a variation of progressive overload.

  36. i'll do that next dead day .. 1RM atm being 545 .. so 405

    beelze - so i should work my way up to 405 like i've been doing now? and then each dead day after move the last set up by 5%?

  37. the warmups aren't too set in stone as long as you ensure not tiring yourself out. as a rule of thumb, i try to keep the weight jumps no more than 90-100lbs.

    135 x 3
    225 x 3
    315 x 1
    405 x max

    next time
    135 x 3
    225 x 3
    335 x 1
    425-ish x max

    next
    135 x 3
    225 x 3
    355 x 1
    445-ish x max

  38. it'll be an endurance workout the first couple times, then as the reps drop, it'll fall into place.

  39. 11/1

    i forgot my log book today .. i'm apparently a complete moron without it as i really could not figure out what weights to use haha

    bis - alternating incline db curls
    50's - 10
    55's - 8
    60's - 7

    max effort squats
    225 - 5
    315 - 3
    365 - 3
    405 - 1
    425 - 1 .. used a belt here .. first time i've used a belt since high school .. it REALLY screwed up my form and it took me forever to squat this and really tired me out so i stopped here .. no more belts

    hams - GHR
    BW - 10
    BW - 8
    BW - 4

    1 legged squats
    135 - 10 per leg
    185 - 10 per leg

    was in a rush as usual and had to split a set early

  40. now for the news

    my lifting partner (ivydude) and i were talking and we've decided starting next week we are going to shift to a more traditional volume workout ... we've been doing low volume for about 2 years now and we both think switching to this for 10 weeks or so would be a nice change and shock our bodies

    we were thinking a 3 day split
    mon -
    chest - 8 or 9 sets
    tris - 6 sets
    shoulders - 3-6 sets

    wed -
    quads - 8 or 9 sets
    hams - 8 sets
    calves - vary it up

    fri -
    back - 9 sets
    bis - 6 sets

    not sure on the rep scheme .. will probably still with 10, 8, 6 for the exercises and we might switch shoulders to friday's workout

    any thoughts? i'm really interested in what people have to say
