Its been a tough week and I was fried by the end of the day today. It culminated today in me having to let a person go and in one of the VP’s in the company riding me about updates on some projects. Took its toll on me. Also think a deload week is in the works very soon.
First week of doing full depth squats…so I guess its not so bad…I just was totally lacking motivation and drive. Just couldn’t get after it the way I should have.
Squats – Belt and Wraps
550x3 Got depth?? YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
600x3 messed up recording
550x5 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
Pause Squats – Pausing for 3 seconds at least 3” below parallel
105x12x12 forgot my straps so my fingers/forearms were screaming
Considering its first week doing full depth squats Its ok…but I had the strength to do much more…and just lacked the drive

Surprised I did as well as I did last night. I was shot and didn’t even have the energy to upload my videos and update my log. I’ll add the video’s later when I get time.
Bench (w/90lbs in chains)
455x3 Tried for a 5lb PR over last week. All were good and explosive, but I hit a wall on the 4th and couldn’t lock it out.

An Important Note For Someone
To whomever it is that is flaming me on You Tube and accusing me of not knowing how to lift and calling me fat.
On not knowing how to lift, I do. I am a competitive lifter that is rarely called out for not performing a lift to strict standards. When I do partial lifts I make no bones about it and don’t even attempt to call it a full lift…I’m doing partials that day. If you don’t understand what I’m doing you need to do some serious research.
On being fat. I’m glad you feel you can judge my BF in videos where only my calves and forearms are visible. I’m assuming your making the judgment on the large size of my stomach. What you do not know, and what I don’t discuss often is that I have a disfigurement I will never be able to be rid of. Due to malnutrition as a homeless child my ribcage is distorted and points out at 90deg to my body and my stomach is distended. Luckily that is all. Unlike my 3 younger sisters who I ended up taking over custody and raising; who as adults are all under 5’ and 100lbs in BW due to FAS.
I don’t appreciate your ignorant and unneeded personal attacks. I am only posting online to keep myself motivated and to inspire others to see what an average person can achieve with training hard, eating right, and OTC supplements.

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)
02-16-2007 10:49 AM
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.

Great log, great numbers and holy s**t - Nice PR's over the last three weeks! Subscribed.
02-16-2007 12:04 PM
Unfortunately I know the need, but have a long way to go in listening to my body and not being to stubborn. I pushed it a few weeks longer than I would have liked this time, to line it up with a 3 day weekend.

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

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

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
Thanks man. Good luck with your training. shoot me a PM if you start a log. I'm not always on this board.

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???
03-06-2007 10:28 AM
good luck with the healing brutha. use your head and don't let your ego be the guide.
03-06-2007 11:58 PM
i hear ya. I'm keeping what lifting i'm doing at 1/4 the weight of what i would typically handle in a given week.

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.
