Kabuki's "VIDEO" Log - a little crazy fun for everyone

Page 10 of 71 First ... 89101112 ... Last

  1. was supposed to do my last heavy squat training session before meet last night. But i didn't have anyone to train with so I will have to push it out a couple days. hopefully this doesn't screw me up to much for meet.

    worked late on big open hole in house again. I told the wife i wasn't going to be doing any work on remodel next week. Rest and Relax.

    but this week i don't have any time to spare and have to drag myself out of bed each morning. getting exhausted, and dropping a bit of weight.

  2. Well….i’m certainly not doing the right things to prep for the upcoming meet. But that’s why its called my “****ed up Log” because I make some poor or unconventional choices at times…but I’m quite happy with that.

    Been stressfull working on getting that 30x12ft hole in the top of my house framed and closed in before it rains. Been working on it every night and have lots of work to do this weekend before the roofers come next week. Losts several pounds over the last 2 weeks.

    Got my second and final workout for the week in tonight. I will have one more speed workout next week on Monday and that’s it. I would like to be doing a bit more work at this time…but with everything else it would quickly run me under. As it is my strength levels are down.

    BW upon waking 239.4

    Squat
    50x10x6
    215x3x3
    305x1
    395x1
    485x1
    575x1 suit(light straps) and light wraps
    665x1 suit(light straps) and tight wraps YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    715x1 suit(tight straps) and tight wraps YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    felt very slow out of hole but I feel better now after watching vid and confirming I went deeper than I needed to. Will have an old training partner who is also a judge at times calling depth for me at meet…so I’m stoked about that :-)

    Speed bench – super close alternating grip
    50x6x6
    190x3x3x3x3x3x3x3 w/30 seconds rest between sets

    Face Pulls
    75x12
    100x12
    125x10x10

    also found an old Z-suit I used to wear in the 198…maybe 220 class. I was able to squeeze into the bottom. I think I’m going to cut the top off of it and use it as briefs in this meet. Any input on doing this?? I can wear a single ply brief in the class I’m competing in.

  6. Well, I busted ass all weekend to finish up some stuff before the roofers come and the structural inspectors. BW dropped to 239 for my end of day weight on Saturday…no good!!! That’s almost a 10lb drop in 3 weeks…right before competition. Did my best to start loading some weight back on, and told the wife I was relaxing all week. Remodel will wait.

    Brought my BW back up to 241.8 upon waking today. Mmmm….deserts, stout floats, and lots of other good eats.

    Last workout before Saturday meet.

    Box Squats – no belt or wraps
    Warmup then
    325x2x2x2x2x2x2x2x2 w/45-60 seconds between sets

    Bench – Super close grip alternating grip
    Warmup then
    190x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3 w/ 30 seconds rest between sets

    Deadlift – belt 2 notches 2 loose
    Warmup then
    415x1x1x1x1x1x1x1x1 w/45 seconds between singles

  11. You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to kabuki again.

  12. From my APA meet yesterday 8/18/07 in Lake Oswego Oregon

    This is my first meet in almost 3 years, and my first total in powerlifting. Previously I did years of 2 lift meets.

    YouTube - My first Meet Total

    Interesting meet. The most challenging circumstances I have lifted under for sure. It was this feds first meet in Oregon and they were breaking in a new crew, and I talked to Scott afterwards and he plans on having his act together for next year. I also left him my number in case he needs some equipment, bars, or help that has meet experience.

    I will not discuss a lot of the problems but just mention a few of the very challenging aspects that hit me hard.

    * Lifting on a hard wood platform. Feet were actually sliding out while setting up and performing the lift!!!
    * No leg drive at all on bench for the same reason with slick hardwood platform. However I did finally find some stickum spray for my final bench.
    * The advertised Okie Deadlift bar was just a standard Powerbar so that was unanticipated.

    I’ll just leave it at that because I know they will do better next year.

    SQUAT:
    Went up to 806lbs for my fourth attempt on the squats for a world record in my class. Most of these were filmed from a kneeling position from the front by my wife. And those that film squats know that this position causes them to look shallow on film. However a couple audience members did track me down and I saw footage of my lift from side and I definitely went below parallel even on the 806. Not to mention the 3 whites on all four.

    BENCH:
    Since I didn’t have a lot of time in the new Bench shirt before the meet I did a token raw lift as an opener, which turned out to be good thing as I missed my shirted lifts. Should have been wise and stuck with my old shirt that I’ve been regularly hitting the heavy weights in even though I was concerned it was about to blow due to age. I should have just used my old shirt that I’ve been hitting 620-630 with fairly regularly in the gym…oh well.

    DEADLIFT:
    Well right before the Deadlift they called me in to help tell them which bar was the Okie dead bar. As noted above outside the Squat bar they only had two powerbars, and I did not have enough time to send my wife home to grab my Okie bar. With the time spent looking at the different bars I only time for a couple singles to warm-up before the flight started. Which was probably fine as I was pretty damn shot at this point.

    I hit an easy 630 opener. Then bumped it to 670 which flew off the floor, however I only grabbed it with my fingertips so I could only hang on to it for so long…which wasn’t long enough. I would normally have gone for the 670 again, but I was already out of the running for the WR total record. So I bumped it the 700, which I’ve wanted for awhile. The weight flew off the ground but just came to dead stall prior to locking it. I need to be working a lot of Band resisted pulling into my next training cycle as it felt as if I could handle in the mid 700’s off the floor.

    Oh yeah, even after giving up 280lbs between the Bench and Deadlift I still had the best total by formula. It was a small venue.

    Additional Notes:
    I had a blast! Met a lot of lifters and was able to help many and watch them get immediate results. Also have a couple athletes lined up for when I expand my training center this winter.

    As many of you know this last two weeks has been a struggle for me. It was great to have the weights in my hands and on my back again testing me to see what the recent neglect has done. I’ve only been able to workout a couple times and have dropped from 249 to 241(not intentionally as I had planned to cut water and recomp) with working every evening and long weekends trying to frame in and seal up the center third section of my upper floor of my house that I cut out.

    I had a lot of anxiety building up without being able to get under the bar like I wanted to. It felt oh so good to feel the joy of victory and pain of defeat in the never ending battle with the Iron again on Saturday.

    To get to 250 @ 10%, you're either gonna have to sacrifice a good amount of strength, or run an entirely SICK cycle! Test/Tren/Halotestin or something of the like.

Pain there and in my throat as well as a painfull cancor sore in the back of my lip. Some sort of infection...i was beat...went home and slept for 12 hours.

  23. wow bro, that sounds like a pain in the ass...get better man...

  24. Great log. I love the videos. I'm looking to pick up strength so I'm using your videos as something new to try to wake things up a bit.

  25. thanks!

    i'd hand out some reps to ya all but i've got to pass em around first.

    Crader...glad i can inspire others to do something different. I get a lot of satisfaction from that. Best of luck and let me know if you have any questions.

    feeling almost 100% now. hitting the amox for breakfast and lunch and calling it good. Will be training tonight of course.

  28. Nice, can't wait to see what happens when you get your true bench #'s in there...

  29. Not to sound cocky but we will be rockin on a national level once that is dialed.

    PI…I never noticed you’re a USP labs rep before. Love your guys stuff. AP is a staple and whenever I have injuries I always jump on the SuperCissus when I have an injury as well as recommend it to others for same reason.

    Just finished up a bunch of bulk powerfull as well….and starting to use Pslin starting this week.

  30. Probably cuz I just started like a week ago...

    Glad to hear you like the stuff though. I've been toying around with repping and talking to different companies for a few months. But I couldn't do it for a company I didn't really believe in, ya know? Glad I found one.
