    No energy to train :-( . Still cutting pretty hard but body is having no response right now, which is quite unusual for me. Quite unusual. Diet was way down last 2 days and it showed in my energy levels tonight.

    I only hit it for a triple last week so that was positive.

    Bench with Shirt
    550x1
    600x1x1x1xmiss

    really struggling with slow lockout due to lack of top end work. Also had skinny guy so I had to do most of lift off and shirt was not fitted 100%. Still no excuse for just plain lack o’ strength.

    as always some insane weight being moved

    couple things i wanna ask or point out..

    1. your close grip bench on these are my normal bench width lol.

    2. does your butt come off the bench? i cant tell and was wondering today while doing inc db benching if its good or bad i always try and keep it planted

    3. going to bed lol

    close grip is relative. Its closer than your normal grip. For me its hands inside rings versus on outside of rings.

    Butt coming off bench is bad. Admittidly mine does a little, but i am limited with foot placement being inside the rack and that plays a major role on it for me.

    Do you think that your energy levels could be a result of an overtaxed CNS from the deadlifts?

    Or maybe all that work on your truck, Big Dogg.

    LOL on the truck

    It definetly could be deadlifting 3 times in one week even though i only did 1 of those heavy. or that 905 squat.

    good point.

    also hitting two sets above my previous bes on benching with chains directly prior taxed the old triceps as well.

    Have to wait and see how it all pulls together at the meet.

    Nothing exciting. Body is definitely ready to back down next week. Next week I just do my opening weights and start cutting back on assistance. Might go heavy on bench but that is it.

    BW upon waking 247.6. That puts me at 252 after rehydration in morning and still 10lbs overwieght. I wanted to be 5-6 lbs over for an easy water cut.

    Squats w/Chain (200lbs in chain)
    55x6x6
    100x6
    245x6
    335x3
    425x3
    515x3
    605x1
    695x1 briefs on
    785x1 suit on
    875x1
    965x1 wraps on
    Last one wasn’t clean or hit depth so it’s a MISS.

    Just didn’t have it mentally as I had a weak spotter. Wasn’t planning on pushing it hard anyway just wanted to prime CNS for handling heavier weights.

    Finally put together my Glute-Ham Raise this weekend and took it downstairs. Damn I could feel on the first rep that I NEED to be doing these. Also good thing I didn’t make it 2” taller. Posted vid to critique form.

    Nice workout. The GHR's looked good to me. You seem like you would be a lot of fun to work out with. Strong guy, that doesn't take himself all seriously, the effort noises you make are hilarious. I still go back to the modified on the ground GHR video for a good laugh every once in a while. It's hard to find a good workout partner/spotter. My friends act like I'm asking them to wipe my ass or something when I ask them for a spot. Never seen that type of GM, looks like it might work the upper back nicely as well as glutes/hams/lower back.

    interesting indeed.. trying to figureout why the band is needed at all all it does is maybe help keep balance? but doesnt appear to add any negative or harder resistance

    the band makes it hard to pull the hips forward. I'm doing a hip thrust at the same time as the GM. sqeeze the cheeks at the top.

    thats a nice thing about lifting at my place...i can make any noises i want to.

    Need a good partner myself. Work issues have pulled out 2 of my lifters right now, and another one is injured. I have an occasional guy that shows up on squat day so i emailed him on monday to verify he would be there for tuesday's workout. Tuesday afternoon he calls me to tell me he cant make it...I answered the phone with "You can't do this, your going to be there tonight wether you lift or not".

    I may have been an ass but you've got to hold your commitments. If he had told me monday he wouldn't make i might have been able to recruit another spotter.

    Same **** happened right before last meet. all of a sudden no one to make it to train.

    WTF is wrong with people.

    I saw that 905 squat,respect from me bro,for going under that you need to be brave like hell.
    At competition what is your record?

    While i was liveing in big city there was one gym,not elite just hardcore gym,you had 2racks for squat,and more 3 pairs of stalks for squats which you could move where you want.Big 15metars long podium for deadlift,8-10 bench presses,two machines for shoulder(free weight),lot of olympic weight and bars plus all machines...there was only 3bikes and few stepers...

    It was full at night,but because all train the same-for strength,you didnt have to wait,from 17:00-22:00 you didnt need to think about things like spoters,and if you ask anybody to spot,it was his obligation,you couldnt see on his face that he is scared or "why me",he didnt ask anything...yeah everyone there knew how to spot,and they all have guts...

    The rest of the day(it work from10:00-22:00),there was at least 10people,and 3-5 persons who worked there.

    But even it was mans gym it was all the time full with chicks,mostly atletes but also there where those who were curious to see that devil place and see how real man train.

    I wish i could return there,litlle clip:

    looks like some good intensity and a good place to train.

    although those 2 man bench press bounces kill me.

    806 is the best i've done in competition. i'm just starting to compete again. shooting for a 900+ in a few weeks at next comp.

    Missed both sled pulling sessions this week. So much for my consistency.

    Missed Sunday because I was putting together my GHR and organizing my gym.

    Missed my sled pulling last night because I was installing a new fireplace insert to make wife happy. And she was when she came home to a beautiful warm fire that night

    Anyway….I was not planning on doing any pulling the week of the meet. Should I start pulling again next week then to stop pulling the week after? Any input is appreciated.

    Well I was pretty much doing a BBer workout today and no training partner so I thought I would take some time and do some BBer activities such as taking pictures and measurements. Hehehe. I’ll save that till the end.

    BW upon waking 245.2….down a couple lbs but I was back up to 252 by training time again. I think I’ll be fine making weight from this 247-245 morning weight. That will give me 12hrs to drop only another 3-6lbs. And hopefully be around 250-255 next day for comp.

    Workout was unimpressive as strength has been plataueing this last week so hopefully timing is perfect as I start deloading over next two weeks.

    Front Delt Raises

    First time I’ve ever taken arm measurement after doing curls or flexing. Not bad considering the very little to nil curling I do. 18 1/8” while hanging and 19 7/8” flexed. The flexed measurement was done after curling and the hanging was done before curling.


    Here is a couple pics. You can see I have stayed lean and maybe even leaned out this last 6-9months as I’ve added 6-8lbs of BW.

    My big stomach in my squat and deadlift vids throws a lot of people off. a lot of stomach muscle combined with pushing out.

    Looking good, Kabuki. You're built a lot like one my training partners for strongman.

    What powerlifting association/federation are competing in? 900+ at 242 has to be a record just about anywhere. I'll be excited to see your competition numbers this time.

    I think the changes may just be the photo. I’m still Ghastly white. Also checked a couple measurements this morning and my waist line is .5-1” larger than earlier this year when I was 10-12lbs lighter. Also measurement on Supurliac was 2mm larger at 8mm now instead of the 5-6mm I was down to at my leanest. Then again I’m taking creatine (Ether 2010) right now along with a lot of dairy (Weekly totals – 2 gallons organic whole milk, 3 quarts cottage cheese, 5 cups organic yogurt) so that could be causing a little water retention bloat around waistline. I think.

    Either way I’m in much better position than I was the previous spring when I was 5-8lbs heavier than I am now but bloated and fat with 20+mm on supurliac.

    Thanks for your compliments.

    I've been up front with my wife from the beginning that this is who i am and is part of my life. I know it frustrates her at times but she allows me to do what I do. She even let me take over the room in the basement for the pit. However i will have to make some compromises when we have a child.

    My family is proud of my accomplishments in life in general and accepts my many unique traits and habits. That is support enough for me.

    aahhhh! leftovers must a gone bad. spent all afternoon running to the restroom. Including multiple trips while warming up on bench. luckily I held it in while I had my shirt on . Sucks I’ll be raw for squatting tomorrow.

    No vids tonight as i mad my first trip into a commercial establishment in over a year to train with some old partners.

    BW upon waking 246.6

    Close Grip Bench
    140x12x6
    230x6
    320x3
    410x3
    440x3
    shirt on
    550x1 clean beautiful and fast!
    590x1 Clean and beautiful
    630x1 clean and beautiful
    660x1 clean off chest but threw it back a little to soon and missed locking it.
    last one felt doable but not supprised i didn't lock it as last week was my first time holding 600lbs since the meet in August.

    Couldn’t get full width grip on these benches. Tried with 630 and crushed my pinky and had to go back to little closer grip for 660.

    Interesting night.

    BW 244.8 light due to sickness yesterday.

    Focus just was not on tonight and I wasn’t really hitting my groove on some of my warmups…which is rare for me.

    55x12x6
    155x5x5
    225x3
    315x3
    405x3 belt on
    495x1
    585x1 breifs on
    675x1
    765x1 suit on
    860x0 wraps on – Dumped it. Plans was to hit a double.

    My old TP were here today whom I really trusted so I was just focused on hitting it as deep as possible and just didn’t even keep it tight in the hole. Got to the hole and basically relaxed my everything (WTF?) and just lost it.

    First squat I’ve ever lost.

    Was kind of locked into squat bar and right knee buckled as it went to the safety pins. Popped a few times but feels fine.

    Backside of knee where outside of hammy ties in started throbbing a little. Woke up this morning and couldn’t straighten out knee, and had to hobble around a bit. However after a hot shower I could walk around with some decent mobility. No blood pooling evident so likely just some micro trauma. Sure wish I had some IGFLR3 handy.

    Anyway, took an icepack to work with me today and will use that multiple times, along with some LIGHT stretching be its use.

    Did some BW squats this morning after the shower and just felt a little bit when locking the knee out.

    Ouch, hope everything is okay in time for the big competition. It's amazing how a slight lack of focus or minor mental error can really **** up a heavy attempt.

    Well its looking like this weekend will not be happening. I’m subbing out the sheetrock work on the new floor I added to my house and will be able to have them get started this week. Been busting ass since Sunday to finish up some of the framing and misc items that have to be done before they start. The impact is that I was not planning on doing this till later in December so I’m having to stretch the finances to come up with a few thousand dollars right now. Not sure that I can afford to be out of town right now let alone another $500 in fuel, hotel room, food (for me and handler), entry fee, ect. I will talk it over with wife tonight but I just don’t see it happening.

    There will be competitions nearly every month between March-August next year so I will have plenty of opportunity to get that big total on the board.

    That blows man, but I guess you have to have your priorities. I guess it will give time to get that 1k squat for next one.

    Meet report.

    Overall bombed but I would call the meet a success for me as it was an experimental meet and I wanted to see how some things played out. Wanted to learn a few things more and get some more meet time under my belt before this next year. I only last minute decided to continue with meet after finishing up work on house I needed done and getting sheet rockers lined out, so I ended up not being prepared for meet.

    I’ll save the lessons learned till the end.

    Weighed in the low 251-252 upon bedtime at 10pm the night before weigh ins and made weight the next day at 5:30pm at 241lbs. and probably dropped another 1lb within a half hour after that. Back at 250lbs by 10pm for bedtime that night without dumping any further wieght.

    Squat…couldn’t hit depth.
    825- just not enough weight
    870 – missed twice. Should have been able to hit depth but I kept freaking out every time I got close to that position I dumped the weight in my last workout. Simple lack of confidence as the weight felt like absolutely nothing on my back. Felt crazy easy. ****in head!!!

    Bench
    570 super easy
    610 miss due to raising but
    630 slow lock but got it. Meet PR!

    Deadlift – First competition Sumo and only second time doing a max sumo pull.
    630 supa easy
    690 successful but nearly dropped it as I did the same thing at last comp and forgot to really grab the bar! I was holding it with 2 fingers in my right hand and they did not give me quick down call. judge was flickin me crap afterwards telling me that was the strongest 2 fingers he has seen!!! PR
    720 right to very end but couldn’t pull hips through. Did remember to grab the bar however.

    If I had sunk one of my squats I would have had a 2190 or greater total.

    Lessons learned.

    Weight Loss – dropping and recomping 10-12lbs in a short period of time is easy but uncomfortable. I took some diesel fuel caps (caffeine +) the day I cut to suppress appetite, diuretic aid, and energy. I did not take into account I was taking these on a completely empty system and should have gone with a minimal dose, if any at all. I was dry heaving by weigh in time (excessive caffeine and nervousness does this to me) and struggled all evening with getting food down afterwards. I easily regained all my weight but wasn’t able to super compensate.

    Preparedness – I need a checklist. And FOOD is of the utmost importance. Like I said this was last minute and I planned for the recomp but not for meet day. And basically did not eat the day of the meet!!! Felt solid on squat but by the afternoon when it came to benching and deadlifting I was really depleted and I could feel it affecting my strength levels. THIS WAS A MAJOR FAILURE. My stomach is a mess in the morning and I was only able to get down a few pieces of fruit and part of my pancakes. I did bring along some fixins for PBJ’s but didn’t have time to make one till 3pm prior to the Deadlift. So I basically went 2 days with only a couple hours of eating in there. I also forgot baby powder, singlet, battery for drill, batteries for camera, toothpaste, ect…you get the idea.

    Training Program – felt stronger and that my strength peaked about 3-4 weeks ago. Need to evaluate my training program leading up to the meet.

    And I missed not having my wife there

    Great work man. Lots of lessons learned I see. That is still some sick weight your throwing around.

    How did you place?
