    GOALS FOR DOING LOG
    Technique - evaluation of my video's and having people call me out or coach me on technique issues I may not see.
    Routine Recommendations -always good to hear what people think I'm doing right, or wrong...I just may not listen because I’m a stubborn bastard.
    Motivation -I train alone often, or with people that don’t have the same level of commitment as I do...so knowing others are watching helps me.

    Stats:
    5’ 9” 215lbs

    Best Lifts in Competition
    Squat 850 @220
    Bench 650 @242
    Deadlift 801 @198

    Goals – Short Term
    Bring my Body composition 10%bf DONE
    In competition Bench 650 DONE, Squat 950, Deadlift 750DONE.

    Goals – Long Term
    Squat 1000+
    Bench 700+
    Deadlift 800+DONE

    Training

    You will find a lot of Westside type material and methodology in my Training program, however I don’t follow specific routine outlined by others. I usually develop a mini routines that I follow for 3-6 weeks at a time, which are all part of a larger macro cycle 3-4 months of raised or lowered training intensity that fit within my yearly training cycle.

    I’ll leave it at that. I think more detail would be a bore.

    Supplement use -
    My basic Sups are Fish Oil (10-20g/day) and BCAA’s (30-80g/day).
    USP LABS
    For performance sups use exclusively USP Labs. I can’t speak highly enough about the quality and effectiveness of the products in there line. I sought out USP labs for this reason and proudly support them as their supplements greatly assist in my ability to withstand my aggressive training.

    Diet
    I eat a clean diet with nearly all whole grain foods, lots of local organic produce, and little if any prepared food. Me and the wife do eat out occasionally...but in Portland we have a lot of restaurants that meet our dietary needs by preparing everything from fresh local ingredients.

    Another good workout tonight!!

    BW upon waking 236.4

    Squat partner didn't show tonight so i had to change up my routine...it turns out for the better. Started with Zerchers as they are safe alone, and followed it with self spotted Close Stance 1/2 squats with a pause on the bottom. You can tell I don't have much stability with the close stance

    Zercher Squats
    140x6x6
    210x5
    280x5
    360x5 feeling very easy YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    410x5 an easy +10lb PR over what i worked my ass off for a few weeks ago YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    430x3 +20lbs YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Feeling good so far, was even pausing a bit on the bottom of each one to make it harder

    Close Stance 1/2 squats
    410x5
    500x5
    590x5 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    640x5 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    680x2 collar started to move on me so i played it safe and stopped. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    didn't attempt the 680 again as the wife came home and informed me my air compressor was having a malfunction in the shop and i spent several minutes in the cold shop fixing it, so i moved on.

    Dumbell Lunges
    95x12x12x12

    Started getted exhausted on the lunges.

    Reverse Hypers
    75x12
    100x12
    125x12
    150x12x6... YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    just didn't have it in me to finish my 3 sets of 12 at my working weight. I'm such a puss sometimes.

    With having my Tuesday night class I have not been able to figure out where to fit my speed deadlifting in. Decided to do it real quick before tonight back work even though I squat in 2 days. Did my whole deadlift routine at 65% including warm-ups in less than 15minutes…and didn’t even break a sweat with only 15-30 seconds rest between singles!!! I was happy with the speed with the short rest and no belt.

    Didn’t finish my workout tonight…lifting 3 days in a row is tough on me. Can’t wait to be done with this evening class.

    Box Squats – 17” box and only a Belt. For those that don’t know, they are harder than normal squats as you sit back farther than normal to require more hip engagement.
    Barx6
    140x6x6
    230x6
    320x6
    410x3
    500x5 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    550x3 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    600x3 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Half Squats – These were not as deep as last weeks so I can’t compare them.
    590x5
    680x5 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    730x5
    770x5 w/long pause at end…also had to use chains as I couldn’t get all the weight on the bar. YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Reverse Hypers
    75x12
    100x12x12
    125x12x12

    Setup the dumbbells for lunges…went down for my first rep and promptly left them on the floor and decided a post workout shake was in order. Damn 2 nights in a row of calling it early.

    600 x 3 is badass brutha. personally, i'd come down a little slower to avoid any lower back compression when 600lbs comes to a dead stop on the bench but if you're not having any problems with it, **** it. just a little friendly advice, that 2nd rep looked a little dangerous.

    agreed on the low back compression as a concern. that is my first time going heavy on box squats in 6-9months and i didn't have the control i wanted. But it didn't feel i was slamming into the bench....because as I come down on the bench i was still driving back with my hips so the force wasn't straight down.

    but agreed it is a concern and i should have some more control over the speed as i sit back on the bench.

    Fairly easy night tonight as I have a lot on my mind at work right now.

    Speed Deadlift – RAW, no belt, wraps, etc.
    All Singles with 15-30 seconds rest between sets @ 70% tonight
    140x6
    140x6
    230x4
    320x3
    410x1
    495x12 – Last two Singles YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.

    Supra Rows (90lbs in bands)
    185x12
    210x12
    235x12 YouTube - Broadcast Yourself.
    260x12

    Pulldowns – Wide grip to the front (approx 60lbs in bands)
    205x8
    230x8x8x8

    Rack Pulls from below the knee
    500x3
    590x1
    650x3

    Face Pulls (45lbs in bands)

    I was hoping for a lot more on the rack pulls tonight…but the bar just felt way to heavy by the time I got to them. Even 500 was tough and felt so much heavier than earlier in workout.

    BW upon waking 238.8

    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
    140x6x6
    230x5
    320x4
    410x3
    500x3
    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
    320x5x5x5

    Dumbbell Lunges
    85x12
    105x12x12 forgot my straps so my fingers/forearms were screaming

    Reverse Hyper
    75x12
    100x12x12x12

    Considering its first week doing full depth squats Its ok…but I had the strength to do much more…and just lacked the drive

    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.

    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.

    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
    140x6x6
    230x3
    320x3

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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???

    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.
