    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
    25x12
    30x12
    35x12x12x12


  2. 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.

    Zercher Squats
    140x6x6
    190x5
    240x5
    320x3 arms told me this wasn't gonna happen tonight

    Regular Squat
    320x5
    410x5
    500x5

    Then i said screw it, not tonight.

  3. 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.

    HEALING
    IGF site injections - started
    Super Cissus - is being shipped

    INFLAMATION
    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.

  4. 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.

    Leg Extension
    170x8x8x8

    Seated Calves
    Unknownxunknown

    Leg Press
    225x8
    495x8
    675x8
    855x8
    1035x8x8 started to get real flushed...not sure if it was to much pressure on chest cavity.
    855x12x12

    Leg Curls
    100x12
    130x12x12x12

    Leg Extension
    250x10x10
    200x10

    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.

  5. 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:

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

    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.

  7. 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
    45x20x20
    100x20
    150x25x25x25x25x25x45x30=200 reps

    Light Supra Pressdowns (95lbs in bands)
    95x20x20x16x16x16

    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???

  8. good luck with the healing brutha. use your head and don't let your ego be the guide.

  9. Quote Originally Posted by Beelzebub View Post

    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.

  10. 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.
    135x20
    225x20x20x20

    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.

    Leg Extension
    200x16x16x16x16x11

    Leg Curls
    120x16x16x16x12

    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.

  11. WoW! i'm coming back quick.

    Bench tonight. Still high rep stuff and no vids. probably start the vids back up next week.

    Bench
    45x20
    110x20
    170x20
    230x25x20x15x15=75reps

    Incline Bench (30lbs in bands)
    75x15
    170x15x15x12

    Supra Pressdowns (90lbs in bands on working sets)
    95x12
    140x12x12x12x12x12

    Seated side laterals (light due to neck)
    10x20
    20x20

    Dumbell shrugs (light again)
    45x20x20

    Rervers grip Supra Pressdowns - curl bar (45lbs in bands)
    95x9x9x9x9

  12. 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:

    Squats
    140x10x10
    230x10
    320x65 done in 3 sets in 7 minutes :whipping:

    150x12x12

    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.

  13. 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)
    45x10x10
    130x10
    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
    45x12
    140x12
    230x12
    230x20
    280x16x12

    130x12x12
    80x20

    Dumbell Front Raises
    25x12x12x12x12

    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.

  14. Nothing to exiting today.

    Deadlift
    140x10
    230x3x3
    405x1x1x1x1x1x1x1x1 30 seconds rest between each.

    165x12
    190x12x10x10x10

    Shrugs
    320x3...didn't feel good at all. so i stopped here.

    Bent Rows - CG False Grip - Bar starting at mid shin
    230x12x12x12x12

    Face Pulls (90lbs in bands)
    90x12
    140x12x12x12x12

    thanks man. that is really appreciated.

  17. Bench night.

    Bench
    140x12x12
    230x12
    280x3
    320x12 right side felt like was going to give out so i had partner grab it...play it safe.
    250x19
    230x15

    Incline Bench (30lbs in bands)
    170x12
    210x12x14x12

    Pressdowns (90lbs in bands)
    95x12
    140x12
    160x10x8x7
    140x8

    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.

  18. 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.

    Squat
    45x10x10
    140x6x6
    230x6
    320x3
    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.
    370x10

    Good Mornings - not the best form as its been 6-9 months since doing these regularly.
    45x6
    140x8
    230x8
    280x10x10x10 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KsAdPk1Bncc"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]

    Dumbell Lunges
    85x12x12

    Reverse Hypers
    50x12
    75x12x12
    100x12x12
    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.

  19. BW upon waking 236.6 gained back a couple pounds after squating yesterday, and felt much better today.

    Speed bench (155lbs in bands)
    45x10
    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
    140x12
    190x12
    230x12
    280x12x12x12x12 [nomedia="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOd6KtW3wBs"]YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.[/nomedia]

    Skull Crushers
    85x5
    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)
    minix12
    SuperMinix10x10x10

    I REALLY LIKED the band resisted front raises.

  20. 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.
    135x6x6
    225x3
    315x3
    405x3
    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
    225x12
    275x12x12x12

    Pulldowns (90lbs in bands) -these baby's are hard.
    140x12
    190x12
    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.
    410x20x20

    Bent Rows - false grip, same depth as above
    225x12x12

    Face Pulls (45lbs in bands)
    95x12x12x12

    Feeling good with VERY LITTLE PAIN in the chest/neck/clavical. A nice solid finish to an otherwise mediocre week.

    Great job on the ~500 x 15, that was a lot like my workout yesterday only my grip started giving after the 10th one. You're making me consider using a belt and straps, right now I am only using chalk, just worried my grip will weaken if I introduce straps to my regime

    i wouldn't recommend using them unless you absolutely have to, for the reason you stated. However on some of the high rep stuff such as that or shrugs it can be hard.

  23. very strong on the deadlifts man. keep it up.

  24. BW upon waking 238.6

    Didn't film anything as nothing impressive tonight. Elbows are killin me right now. so i took it easy on triceps and I'll be icing em down as soon as i finish posting this.

    Thanks man. just testing the waters and handling some heavier weights after very recent injury. I think another month and I'll go for a real good one.

  26. looks like your recovering very quickly.

  27. Quote Originally Posted by Gettinpumped View Post

    yes...very quickly. however it was quite costly to do so.

    ProloTherapy (2 treatments) $300
    Acupuncture/Chiropractic - Deductible and misc copays - $300
    IGF - $120
    2 bottles of cissus - $70

    Training within a week of separating my clavicle from my chest plate, and what appears to be full recovery 4 weeks...Priceless

  28. BW upon waking 238.8

    I would like to think i hit solid depth tonight on working sets, but you can judge that. Weights felt easy, just continued running out of gas on this high rep stuff. I know i can do more if i was in better shape.

    Squat
    45x10x10
    140x10x10
    230x5

  29. My back is sore just watching. I like the use of kendolf on the rack. You are a pretty crafty cat, nice skills. And squatting with the Chuck Ts i know you are good people. Great log brah really enjoyable.
