cool. The bands are the only thing that seems to work for me, but i am tring some other stuff right now, i really need to put on some size, and the low reps just dont do it for me.

In Pennsylvania down by Reading. I am a lifetime drug free lifter so this would be a big accomplishment for me. Right now I'm good for 735/435/675. For me to put 55 pounds on my total in 3 months is asking a lot. So I may not hit it in December but I should be pretty close.

10/5/08

SSB Squat
290x 13 + doubled larges

ME Deadlift
285x 10 + short large bands

It was a nice break to get on the safety squat bar with only doubled larges and bang out some reps. Looking back I should've done 3 plates for the SSB for a set of 10. Used a modified sumo style like Bernor today and had great success. Those Iron woody short bands doubled are a lot of tension at the top!

Safety Squat Bar Squats

Very happy with todays workout. I am able to keep my back very straight and sit right down. No speed work today, had other family commitments.

DE Bench Press
355x 8

DB Extensions
3x10

H Rolls
4x15

Went up 10 pounds and got 8 reps again. Went for 9 but missed halfway up. No speed work today as I was at Golds Gym and had no bands. Was nice to do some extensions it has been awhile.

Trap Bar Deadlift
600x 14

Board Benching
3board 115x 7 + 1/2 medium 1/2 mini
4board 135x 7 + SAME


Had a good workout today. The 600 felt great and I didn't have any grip issues. Dropped the 2 board as I want to make my board benching more of a tricep focused day and completely rest my chest and front delts.

ME Safety Squat Bar Squats
330x 4 + doubled larges and doubled monster minis

Today had a great workout with the SSB. The week off from squats along with the higher rep training is really recharging my system.

DE Bench Press
370x 5

Fat Bar Speed Bench
125x6x2 + doubled smalls

H Rolls
4x15

Today was a **** workout for me. My shoulder is killing me and my weight is down. I have also been very inconsistent with my speed work and rotator cuff work. I will be happy with a 405 bench at the meet.

11/1/08

DE Safety Squat Bar
710x 9

SSB Speed
150x 8 x 2 + doubled mediums

Lost the 10th rep forward. I was shot as this was a tough set. I think the workout on Thursday coupled with the fact that I wasn't focusing as much on technique as I should have cost me my 10th rep. Maybe, maybe not!

12/13

I've been off the bands for 5 weeks now due to work obligations. However I was still able to train and keep some good strength hitting 405x 8 and 455x 3 in the raw front squat(o belt no wraps) as well as 365x 8 paused reps in the bench. This was my first workout back with the bands:

ME Safety Squat Bar
60x 5, 3 + doubled larges
60x 2 + doubled larges and doubled mediums
60x 1 + 2 sets doubled larges

ME Pause Bench
45x 5 + doubled smalls
135x 5 + doubled smalls
185x 10 + doubled smalls
225x 5 + doubled smalls

Good workout today. I have some pain in my neck from the SSB but I think I'll be ok. Will get another sq/bp workout next saturday.

Where at in Reading? Or did you have it already? I am out near Hershey, do you live near reading?

I live near Allentown. The meet was in Leesport but I couldn't do it because of work. You are about 45 minutes from where I am at in Lebanon.

Yeah, I know. It's over 1000. Most people don't realize the tension with doubled bands. I'll get back to you tomorrow with an email.

I have been to Allentown a few times. I am a little further out now, I moved to Palmyra. Probably would add 5 minutes on 81/78 to the trip. If you do any other meets near the Reading area, I will definitely come to check it out.
