strong lifting, 315 is one of those sweet milestone that gets people looking. Keep it up! You could easily do 10 in a row if you wanted to, and by easily I mean do it, but it might be a terrible character building experience. lol

No, it's 315lbs 5 reps for 3 sets.

Thanks, it was tougher than what it looked like. I wanted 300lbs+ and I had done 305X5X3 the previous workout and was excited. I was really excited to see I was squatting three plates. Now I'm gunning for 4 plates or better.

Today was a good day. PRs again. (Actually, every day I lift will be a PR day until I stall.)

Squats: (Love 'em.)

Thanks, I had to drop weights one time as the weight started to "scare" me but, now I'm more confident and hopefully continue to get stronger.

After watching the DL clip I had to go rewatch the squat vid...that is amazing and motivational, to say the least.

Thats awesome man. I cant imagine trying to keep the weight balanced with one arm.

Are you really squatting 3x a week? if so impressive stuff.

Thanks. It's really not that hard but, if it weren't for the MantaRay I use, I doubt I'd be doing this much. (At least with semi proper form.)

Yes, three times a week and adding 5lbs per workout. I'm running StartingStrength.

This weeks workouts:

March 5:

Monday:
Squat: 325lbs
Bench Press: 80lbs
Deadlift: 230lbs

Wednesday:
Squat: 330lbs
Press: 65lbs
Deadlift: 235lbs

Friday:
Squat: 335lbs
Bench Press: 85lbs
Deadlift: 240lbs

Next week I'll be adding chin-ups, power cleans, and back extensions. (MIGHT add chin-ups. I bought some big bands and I'm hoping I can use one or both to allow myself to do chin-ups. I'll be going to the gym tomorrow to test this theory. :))

I think watching the births of my two sons was more bad ass but, than you! :)

I hope to get up to 300lbs or so. At least for 1RM. (Of course, it will be with a strap.)

Another PR, only 5lbs at a time but, every work out (I hope.) will be a PR. :)

I'm a bit behind on this. I second Invain's comment... that 1-arm DL is pretty damned bad assed.

The 225x20 Squat sets are night and day. It looks like you've lost a great deal of weight from a year ago.

Form looks tight throughout on the newer video. Form was good on damn near every rep also. No critiques necessary.

Comments: keep that ish up!

Thank you. I lean more toward my squats but, I guess it is pretty cool looking. :P

Thanks, I'm actually the same weight (maybe a little more) than in that first video. Just been working out since last October and I'm hoping that it's muscle gain and not fat gain.

I'm currently TRYING to cut my fat gut off. Tried leangains but, I din't think I was doing it quite right. I lost 10lbs in about a week or so (mostly water I'm sure) but, constant headaches. I know I didn't eat enough to recover and now 315lbs is heavy.

Thanks on the form comment. I know it's FAR better than it was, still need to work on it.

I never would have guessed this was only with 1 arm until I saw the DL video. You sir, are a true inspiration! Makes me feel like a b***h for skipping some workout days!

Good for you man, heavy weight and like I said, truly inspirational!

Thanks man. I'm glad I inspire people but, all of you inspire me as well. Keeps me motivated and I really appreciate it. I'm back at 230lbs deadlifts after a reset. I was up to 245lbs and then took two week or so off. Now I'm back into a groove and hitting it hard.

Thank you again.

I hit another PR on Monday and another today...

Today was another awesome day.

Squats: 350X5X3
Press: 65X5X3
Dealifts: 225X5X1

The squat is another PR. I'm happy with it but, I feel that I need to work on my lower back some more. It was really pumped and was kinda hurting after the last set. Luckily, thus far, it's not hurting anymore. I was still able to press and deadlift with no issues.

Press, I've repeated the 65lbs the last few times, I need to remember my magnetic fraction weights next time.

Deadlifts felt a little heavy, I've neglected doing them the last few workouts. I need to get back at it, I think that will help my squat (lower back) more.

Over all, I'm stoked. The weight is getting heavy on the 2nd set and really heavy on the 3rd set. I see some failures in the next couple weeks or I might wuss out and go fractional with 2.5lbs increments. *undecided* I guess I'll see when I get there. (FYI: I always post my last working set.)

I ABSOLUTELY did not want to squat today. Since Wednesday, my knees felt like they were bashed with a sledge hammer. Holy hell, I felt like I was 60+ years old (not knocking the geezers+) and hadn't worked out since I was born. I seriously think I'd rather take a shot in the nuts (like I usually do) by one of my big ass kids. (At least two knees a week or so - average.)

Started out nice and slow and literally was ready to go home after 7 minutes on the elliptical/slider/weird thing. It really helps warm my quads and hams up. So I head over to the squat cage (when I come into the gym, I head straight to it and set everything up so when I get done warming up, I can start my warm up squats.) and get under the bar. Just NOT feeling it. I squat down for my first warm up squats and aches and pains through all 5 reps. Damn it. My right knee is feeling like crap. I guess I'm not hitting 355lbs today.... :|

I muster up the courage to do all of my warm ups and see how I feel. The second (bar only) set felt pretty good. My right knee felt better/stronger. Good, maybe I could do 340lbs or so, at least 345 or 350. (Same as previous weight.) I go through all of my warm up sets and I'm feeling great. Screw it. I'm going to kill this 355lbs.

Let it be done....

Squat: 355X5X3
BP: 85X5X3
CU: 75X10X3
BE: 10X3

Everything was a cake walk after that. I didn't film it, I figure I'll hold off on that until I get to 405lbs or so. I figure everyone is getting tired of me posting videos of myself. :P

I haven't watched the videos but it looks like you are a shoulder disartic? Have you tried pulling with a prosthesis? If so, I'm curious what your experiences with it were and why you choose not to lift with one. Thanks!

mwhities
06-29-2012, 09:01 AM
Yes it is. (I'll admit, I had to look disartic up.) I went without a prosthetic for three years before I had the chance to get one. I got one and immediately disliked it and sponsored it (minus the shoulder mold) to another person. I adjust without it already and I felt (and still feel) it would be in the way all the time and a major PITA.

With that said...

Here are my latest videos and all are PRs (with and without MantaRay). Most I've ever squatted ever.
