BW upon waking 237.2
So ready for my 5 days off from training. This is my last workout before the delaod. Took it easy tonight.
Speed Bench (155lbs in bands)
290x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3 (30 seconds rest between sets)

smart move on the time off, a lot of guys don't understand that aspect of training. and whoever the chump is, don't sweat it. you'll find that the majority of guys are much braver behind a computer screen or in a car where they can drive away. 'punk b!tches' is the correct term i believe.

BW upon waking 236.4
Down several pounds coming off of a 5 day layoff from training. Went out of town did some snowboarding, hiking etc, and dropped my daily cals down while not training. I only missed 2 heavy training sessions and should have taken it easy tonight to get me closer to a full weeks deload…but I didn’t. We will have to see if my training suffers.
Speed Deadlift – (Belt Only) Singles with 45seconds rest between
565x8 one of the singles here: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z7jSVLtW0BQ"]YouTube - speed Deadlift[/ame]
These were much slower than I would have liked…think I skip the 600x6 next week.
Bent Over Rows – Bar well below knees
320x10x10x10x10 last set: [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vu71mIWJDDU"]YouTube - Bent Rows[/ame]
At least I kept it light here and really hit some volume
Wide Grip Pulldowns – 90lbs in bands
500x20 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkJC5sHIzC8"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
550x12 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LsEQx5UTsc"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
last set wasn’t the best but I was happy with the 500x20. Getting tired.
Face Pulls – 45lbs in bands
115x12x12x12 Last Set: [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vg9b3u3YT1M"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
I’m right back in continuing my experiment with heavy band tension on a range of assistance exercises.
For the Supplement Log, no weekly summary for last week due to the time off. You’ll have to wait for pretty data tables to be updated .

I've been doing heavy bands on all my tricep assistance excerises for the last 6 weeks. Dropped back to straight weight to see what kind of progress it was relating to. WORKING WELL as you can see above! I still have a rep or two left in the tank after the third set.
Dumbell front raises

BW upon waking 235.8
WOW today royaly sucked. Busy day at work, and my squat partner ditched on me today. Then I started feeling sick as well with my throat being very painfull. Due to an evening class I have to workout 3 days straight, culminating in squat day, and I've been struggling with this for the last several weeks.
Going to have to change something becasue it just isn't working. I think I'm going to have to quit *****in and force myselft to workout on a weekend day for the next 8 weeks that i'm in the class.
So today when i got home i ran aseveral oranges and some ginger root through the juicer to take care of the throat and tried my workout.
320x3 arms told me this wasn't gonna happen tonight
Then i said screw it, not tonight.

Very Bad News
I'll keep it breif. Fell down while snowboarding yesterday (harder than i've ever done before). Pulled my right clavical away from my chestplate, just shy of a complete dislocation.
It's back in place now (that was painfull) but I've been given 6 weeks to slowly work back into my training. This includes anything that loads my shoulders such as squats, deadlifts, shoulders, etc.
I have a few tricks up my sleave that help with injury recouperation.
IGF site injections - started
Super Cissus - is being shipped
Ibeprofin - started
Devils Claw Root - started
Ice Compression - started
Electro Accupuncture therapy - scheduled this week
NEW TREATMENTS that i may give a run with this injury
Laser Treatment - started
Prolo-Therapy - investigating
If anyone has any other advice let me know. In the past just getting the inflamtion down and letting the IGF and Cisus do their tricks has done wonders for me. I've gone from a torn hamstring to squating over 600 again in less than 4 weeks.
02-28-2007, 09:54 PM
Feels like the igf is kickin in. Feeling much better. don't have full range of motion back with my right shoulder, but no pain when taking deep breaths.
Went to gym hoping for at least a mediocre training session...didn't achieve it. Damn i hate commercial gyms. all the equipment i could use was busy, so i had to wait and do stuff out of order. Didn't push anything to hard and didn't use the grips so it was hard to stay seated or laying down properly.
1035x8x8 started to get real flushed...not sure if it was to much pressure on chest cavity.
Lame workout, but at least it was a workout.
I go in for the ProloTherapy injection tommorrow. Lets see what that does. Super Cissus RX showed up tonight.
Now i've got to go figure out how to get some 44inch tires from the back of my truck to my shop with one arm.

I just wanted to let you know how much I appriciate this workout log you have been maintaining here at AM.
I just now stumbled across and read through all the entries. First off, awesome progress! I'm actually fairly similar to you in height, weight, and appearance, even the mustache and goatee, I might end up posting a photo it is that similar lol. You deffinately kick my ass when it comes to the numbers though, I only come close on deadlifts, but I must say it is very inspiring and motivating. I'll consider it a great accomplishment if I can squeeze some similar performance figures out of my body in the future. I've been slow to make the transition fron bodybuilding training to powerlifting, but it is definitely where I am headed, and again this log is very educational and inspiring.
Please keep up the great work, reps for u!:squat:
03-03-2007, 10:10 AM
Hopefully I'm up and running shortly. I'm really hopeing i don't have to take the full 6 weeks off from training...but right now i'm still in pain and don't have full mobility with my shoulder.
03-05-2007, 11:51 PM
Light Benching and Triceps tonight.
No video's as i'm just doing light recouperative stuff. Sick as a dog...but couldn't help but lift today.
Anyway. I'm not supposed to be doing pressing movements but the collarbone is feeling real solid. The only problem is some neck and trap muscles that tie into the back of the collarbone are still totally tweaked out. Trying to get into to have some elctro acpuncter this week to get them to release a bit. It seems to deep for the Tens Unit to do much good, but i'm trying anyway.
Light Bench Press
Light Supra Pressdowns (95lbs in bands)
Cooldown by unloading two Unimog axles from back of truck to shop. Training partners hate the fact i always have them doing stuff like this when they show up...but i tell them its a small price to pay for the free gym and training i provide. Wouldn't you agree???

wow...i'm just not in the shape i need to be for the high rep routine that i'm stuck with now. embarrasing day, but at least i did something. I may have to do some cardio to work on getting in shape for this.
Still sick but on tail end.
Squats ( below paralell and no belt/wraps/ect.)
45x16 - i knew it was going to be tough when i got winded on this one and stopped short of my 20 LOL.
Had to lean over a bit much to keep the bar weight on my back and off my shoulders. low back locked up so bad i could barely walk after the third set so i had to skip leg presses.
Like i said very pathetic. I was supprised at how much of a toll the high rep squats took on me. But at this point i'm still ahead of the game as far as recovery.
I got scheduled in to see my accupuncturist tommorrow, for a little electo-accu. See if that will help clear up the trap and neck muscle issues tieing into the collarbone.
03-13-2007, 12:33 AM
WoW! i'm coming back quick.
Bench tonight. Still high rep stuff and no vids. probably start the vids back up next week.
Incline Bench (30lbs in bands)
Supra Pressdowns (90lbs in bands on working sets)
Seated side laterals (light due to neck)
Dumbell shrugs (light again)
Rervers grip Supra Pressdowns - curl bar (45lbs in bands)
03-14-2007, 11:44 PM
still light because i don't want to load the shoulder to much yet...but slowly climbing in weight. And just so you understand, even though its light these workouts are tough on me as i have not done cardio in over 5 years, or over 6 reps on a core lift on regular basis for years. Ok, i'm done:nopity:
320x65 done in 3 sets in 7 minutes :whipping:
middle set here [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bHpWVIjHtVs"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
100x12 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZpC3Irznfw"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
I love my reverse hyper attachment as it folds up against the wall...which is critical with my limited space.
Not to enthused with my Squat form again. Leaning over to far which is also causing my depth to be shallower than i like, and fatigueing out the back.
03-15-2007, 10:23 PM
went to chiropractic sports physician this morning. he said looking good but my strained SCM is still pulling on my clavical. It was little out of position and needed a little nudge. This afternoon I went and got a second ProloTherapy shot just for insurance as he said I only needed the one. Damn makes everything tender and swollen. I knew it woul make tonights workout a *****...but I'm up for the:whipping:
Speed Bench (155lb in bands)
275x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3 30 seconds rest between sets.
last set: [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cRV0x1OCyvk"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
good speed considering...but slower than i'm used to.
Military Press Lockouts from eye level
Dumbell Front Raises
damn i'm sore now but that is expected after the injection and the collarbone doesn't seem to have shifted....but its hard to tell as the chest is still swollen around the injection.
03-16-2007, 09:49 PM
Nothing to exiting today.
405x1x1x1x1x1x1x1x1 30 seconds rest between each.

WG pulldowns (90lbs in bands)
320x3...didn't feel good at all. so i stopped here.

320x12 right side felt like was going to give out so i had partner grab it...play it safe.
Incline Bench (30lbs in bands)
Pressdowns (90lbs in bands)
The set with 320 was funny. I ripped open a cut on my thumb while lifting and the blood starting pooring down my arm. know one noticed untill i yelled to grab and rack it and then they all noticed the blood covering my forearms, elbow sleeve, and floor and thought something had gone terribly wrong. Wished I'd filmed that one. would have been good entertainment value anyway.

BW upon waking 234.8...down a few pounds this week.
ok...i'm starting to get pissed myself. I need to step it up this week and quit letting the weights win the battle. Everything felt heavy tonight and I didn't push myselt to hit my reps.
My form on the squat is still sucking...leaning way to far forward when i'm in the hole.
370x16 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NuA66Txjalo"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
Did another set to punish myself for not pushing out 20. and went super deep for extra punishment. also focused on not leaning over after watch last vid.
Good Mornings - not the best form as its been 6-9 months since doing these regularly.
280x10x10x10 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsAdPk1Bncc"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
kept these light tonight and really focused on pulling them up high and tight.
I was exhausted by the end, but don't feel like i got much out of tonights workout.
03-22-2007, 09:59 PM
BW upon waking 236.6 gained back a couple pounds after squating yesterday, and felt much better today.
Speed bench (155lbs in bands)
255x3x3x3x3x3x3x3x3 (15-30 seconds rest between sets)
forgot my warmups and forgot to film the last set, but much faster than last week.
Suspended Military press from forehead
280x12x12x12x12 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOd6KtW3wBs"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
135x12x12x12x10 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YZvRI7M1qKU"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
tricep/elbow was real tight, so that first set was slow...probably from lack of warmup before speed bench
Front Raises (Band Resisted)
I REALLY LIKED the band resisted front raises.
03-23-2007, 10:23 PM
BW upon waking 237.0
Well, i was disapointed with two of my workouts this week so i decided to hit a bit more volume tonight on deadlifts. I also thought it my help loosen up my hammies and glutes that were fried from my high rep squating 2 days agon. not that impressive as i'm still not used to high reps in general...let alone the fact i rarely do more than a tripple with them.
Deadlifts - thought i would play around with sumo stance again. still getting feel for it.
495x15 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kxwIWwUBW5A"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
i'm happy with it considering how sore i was going into workout...and i just don't do this type of work.
Bent Over Rows - Bent till bar is mid shin
Pulldowns (90lbs in bands) -these baby's are hard.
210x10 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPlPv5KAmxQ"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]
not pictured on the last set - one last rep where i held it in back position for a 5 count
Shrugs - I WAS ABLE TO DO THEM THIS WEEK WITH NO PAIN!!! More Progress!
But kept it light by doing Super Wide grip outside rings.
Bent Rows - false grip, same depth as above
Face Pulls (45lbs in bands)
Feeling good with VERY LITTLE PAIN in the chest/neck/clavical. A nice solid finish to an otherwise mediocre week.
