08-18-2004, 04:58 PM
How many ya got left?? :alcoholic
Just down to Ol' chomper now:D
good am's close stance off pin 3 with average bands choked around rack+DB
135x3 hard lol 165x3 185x3 205x1 215x1 225xmiss,miss
manta squats off box 205x8,8,8
standing abs 3 sets
Holy ****! good am's + bands rocked!!! it was evenly hard throughout the ROM
Bands gave estimated 90at bottom 190 at top.
Manta squats fried me as usual lol There just so hard.
Weight after PW shake(500ml) 188!
Tomorrow will probly be closegrips with lights doubled, either full ROM or board press.
P.S. Westside = Ace!
Thanks to skinny(Anthony:D) for this.

Damn you and your GMs! :D Awesome transformation, too. Must be that Northumberland Milk!
closegrip with doubled lights barx3 shakkkkky 95x1 115x1 135x1 155x1 175xmiss
floor press 225x5pr,7PR!!!
rotator 3 sets
db swings 3sets 15x15
iso pulldowns 3.75ppsx6,6
Closegrips were insane! Tension was phenominal. probly 150lbs at top 60 at bottom
Floor press was big time PR and i owe that to the bands. Each rep was fast.
Got some pics of my band setup, ill attach them later.
speed squats 8doubles@195 with choked lights around rack+db
sans box 225x1 straps up 275xnot even close to parallel 315xalmost parallel
deads 225x3 275x1 315x1 365x1 405x1 Strong! Straps on that one
sumo 315x5 easy 365x1pretty tough 405xouchie, little crunch in my spine, called it quits
At the meet i'll open 330 on squat and 418 on deads. Find out bench today.
The reason i tried 405 sumo is cause a guy i know just did a 545 double sumo and i got jelous:D HHes the same weight as me too, and 48!
speed bench 95+MD 9triples then 135 and 185 with MD
powergrip(1.5"off smooth) 185x1 okay 225x6 paused! PR bigtime!!
lockout on pin2(2-3"off chest) 225x3 235x3
chins 45x6 70x5,5
rotator like 6sets
couldn't do DB swings, pulled a neck muscle somehow
Did the tubtest today with the 4 site and got 10.5%. Same as ~6weeks ago
Post shake weight 188!
Bah. Had the other tooth pulled 20mins ago. This one was worse cause i heard it crunching/breaking as he yanked it. I want to go beddy now but i cant cause half my face is frozzen. So that would equal mass drooling lol

Just down to Ol' chomper now:D
So you basically look like everyone else in Nova Scotia now?
Seriously though; have you posted the diet you used for the transformation? I reckon it would be instructive for many. Hell I wouldn't mine pirating the best bits from it myself.
Don't even have the Ol' chomper now:(
The diets in here a couple times. Right now i dont have a 'set' diet but i still come very close to this just with more calories.
This is what i used from the begging except i added a workout shake to it.

Don't even have the Ol' chomper now:(
Ah, the New Brunswick look as opposed to the Nova Scotia look. Sweet. ;)
Thanks for the diet repost.
The squat rack is where i do the reverse band deads. I choke the band ariound the top pin.
good ams close stance,off pin3 with strong choked.
barx5 95x3 135x1 155x1 175x1 195x1 215xmiss,miss 205x1!
Partial deads off pin1 with SD aroundDB+rack(not a typo) barxcouple 135x3 225x3 275x3,3,3 Felt much heavier then 650 did at lockout
Standing abs facing pully buncha sets
Good am's were great. The bands felt to give approx. 200lbs at top and over 100 at bottom. The 205 was ME throughout the whole rep.
Partials were beyond heavy! I've done 650lbs hold without chalk no problem but this was much much heavier. Just the bar+bands felt to be over 400.
Weight today 186 still trying to gain back the couple lbs i lost when the took thee tooth.
weight yesterday 184
Grrr. Just noticed that the pics dont work. Just copy and paste the url if you want to see them
08-27-2004, 06:25 AM
Next time just post the link! ;) Nice work on the GMs!
08-27-2004, 07:34 AM
Youv'e got some great lifts here!
Whats the Maltodextrin?
The malto is just carbs. Its like dextrous only a complex carbohydrate.
powergrip(2"from smooth) 245 for 3 paused singles
closegrip lockouts on pin 3 with MD 135x5 185x3 225x1 245x1 265x1 285x1 305xmiss,miss 295x1slooooooooow:)
powergrip w/MD 185x3,3,3
db rows 100x8,8
db swings 15x15,15
rotator external rotations ~6 sets
Ace! the clogrip w/MD was 375 at lockout! heavy ****
Went to physio today to find out whats up with my shoulder, physio guys on vacation:mad:
245 went up pretty nice. Had a ref critique the lift and the first 2 singles just barely had too short of pause, last one was good though.
08-28-2004, 07:32 AM
Good luck bro, sorry I can't make this one. Did you hear anything about PEI? I'd try to make that one and compete raw.
Bad news about pei. Tom N. isn't holding the meets anymore. And so far noone else has got up too take his place.
The only ones i know of now in the atlantic provinces are:
Yarmouth sept 11
stephenville nov 6
Maybe no meet for me:(
Friends car just blew the engine and we were going to take that. My car has a new engine but the transmission is not trustworthy(meet is ~700km's away)
speed squats with average/greens around DB+rack 8 doubles@135 and a double@185 speed was Fast!
forgot speed deads again
good ams pin3 with greens,close stance 135x3 155x8! 175x5! 195x3!!
standing abs 3 sets then ab cramp
squats felt greeat with the greens! about 185lbs extra at top. Good ams were brutaly good;) First set was going to be a triple but i did 3 then got massive adrenaline burst, could've went higher then 8 but might have had bad consenquences lol
ab cramp sucked, note to self, chug water before doing abs!
Speedy bench 9 triples@135 3x3x3grips
single with powergrip 185,225 3 sets of 1 paused
powergrip 245x5!!!!!!! Alltime PR!
pushdowns 1 set
skulls 2 sets
db rows 105@8,8,15!
db swings 15x15,15
lay on side external rotations 2 sets 12@10lbs big weight:cool:
cable external rotations 2 sets 12
internal rotations 3 sets
Whoa! Bench today was great, ive now surpased my alltime PR of 250x4.
On db rows i did 8 on the last set and decided to go until the form started getting sloppy.
Leg doms today - ouch!
close stance good am's off pin3 with strong+light bands choked on DB+rack barx5 tough lol 95x3 115x1 135x1 155x1 165x1 175xmiss,miss
zerchers 315x3 275x3 225x3
standing abs w/no back support 4 sets
Good am's were fun as usual. Bands added ~270lbs at bottom 350~ at top. The 165 was by far my slowest good am ever.
weight: back to 187:D
And as far as how much weight the bands add im just using the #'s from the 'band manual' from elitefts.com
at the bottom it doesnt feel that heavy but the top tension number seems fairly accurate.
closegrip lockouts,pin2,LD barx5 95x3 115x1 135x1 155x1 165x1 175x1 185xmiss,miss
floor press 225,2,3 didnt feel right today
iso pulldowns 3ppsx12,12,12
db swings 15x12,12,12
rotator 3 excercises 12 reps each set,3 sets each lift
As you can see my number of the day was 12;)
lockouts were crazy! Loads of tension. 175 was about 350~ at lockout.
floor presses were blah. No spotter to add to being a tough lift made me leave after 2 sets.
speed squat w/greens 8 doubles@145 a double @195w/greens
as usual i forget speed deads
manta squats of my box(11") 215x8,5,5
abs few sets
not a good mood today
speed bench 9 triples135
2board 225 235 245 5's
iso pulldown 3.5pps@10,10,10
rotator 4 sets of internal and 4 external rotations
Got my pay stub last night and found out im making 6.50/hour (min. wage) and my boss told me id bee getting 7 which still sucks. Right now i think im losing money by the month. Have to pay for car/repairs/insurance and food and anything else i want. This ****ing sucks.
[End of pissed off rant]
09-08-2004, 05:17 AM
Sucks about work, but at least your training is going well. :D
Even more pissed now
went to get my gas tank put on my car(had an appointment for 7.45) And car wasn't done till 4.00:mad:
might not train tomorow or friday, only got 3 hours of **** sleep last night and no food today so im waaaaay behind in recovery
A good workout:omg:
good ams off pin 3 with strong AND average choked! barx1,1 95x1 115x1 135x1 145xmiss,miss,miss Bands added a few hundred lbs of tension. Elite manual says bands added ~400 at top
good ams straight weight off pin3 225x3 255x3,3,8!!!!!!
standing abs 75x12,12,12
My back is getting strong as fook now, and i like it:D
The good ams with bands had an unimaginable amount of tension. At lockout it felt like ~500lbs!
Reg good am's were awesome too. I was going to do 3 triples(thought that would be hard) But the weight went up like it wasnt on the bar. Last set wasn't failour but pretty damn close.
Forgot to add.
Was LMAO today at someone squatting, or should i say knee bending. There rom was 7~8" and they were looking around to see if people were impressed. Only had 225 on it too.
wide grip(pinky on ring) Off pin2(2"above chest) with MB doubled barx8 95x3 135x1 165x1 185x1 195x1 205x1 215x1 225xmiss(didnt budge),1!!!
closegrip bench w/straight weight 205x10!!
db rows 110x8,8
rotator superduper set 3each of external&internal rotations
Workout started off slugish, i almost missed 185. Then i got my mind set and kept going until i got the 2 plates.
speedy squats with averade choked on db+rack 155x2 for 8 sets and a double with 205
sldl 315x5 365x1then abort
reg de3ads 2 singles@365
side bends 65x10 70x10 75x10
The squats were very very fatiguing on the strength, it didn't show till 365 abort.
Next week probly do 95 and strongs choked around db+rack
Bringing the platform in tonight! will test it out on thursday. The chains look awesome now, i sprayed them with chrome spray paint.
09-13-2004, 06:08 PM
Abort on the 365, eh? :D Nice work with the bands. When you gonna start using the chains, or have you?
should be starting tomorow on speed bench
speed bench 115+chains(20lbs/side) 9 triples 3x3grips single with 165+chains single@195+chains
pin2lockouts with MD 185x5 195x5 205x3.64;)
db rows 105x10,10,10
rotator external and internal rotaions 3sets each
chains felt nice. BIG difference to bands. with bands they pull the weight down but with the chains theres no added eccentric force. So with chains it feels like straight weight at the bottom of the ROM but as you go up it feels like your pushing through something as it keeps getting heavier.
Only problem is that as of know i cant leave the chains at the gym and there to heavy to carry in easily. There definatly fun though.
Thursday i get to max out deads on my baby! (platform)
deads off platform with MD 345xmiss, got really really pissed then 345x1:)
deads standing on plate off platform with md 185x5,5,5
side bends 65,70,75x10
standind abs 3 sets of 12
started out today in a good mood, now its another story:mad:
ME bench (can't really call it that today)
db press 45x8 55x5 65x5 75xnot even 0
db press high rep 35x20 40x20 45x20
bb row 155x8,8,8,8
db swings 15x15,15,15,15
couple sets of internal/external rotations
upright rows 85x~8-10 for 4 sets
well, db press started out good.... then i lay back with the 75's and the right side just kept on going. Had to drop it on the floor. High reps felt good today(which is odd)
everything else was so so.
I really need to increase my food intake. Recovery is very slow right now(compared to 6-8 weeks ago)
did all the stuff in 65 mins, by the end of it i was sweating so bad that i freaked myself out:eek:
No workout today. Gym's closed because of a lack of electricity, pansies:D
09-20-2004, 06:31 PM
I enjoy reading your journal Adam, keep up the good work.
speed squats with SC(strong choked) 115x2 for 8 sets Felt very light 165x2 felt light 185x2 Far from heavy
good am's with SC 185x3,3
side bends 75x10,10,10
standing abs 90x15,15,15
well, had a talk with my back today and im going to take the next 1.5 weeks off from heavy lifting. I've been feeling beat up lately and on good ams i felt like ****. Squats felt too easy today? I'm still going to lift, just the 3 main lifts and some accesory ****, really light.
cool...another westside journal.
I ****in hate my ****in job.
That is all
09-22-2004, 05:36 PM
lol, rough night??
well, i had an appointment at the bank at 2.30pm. I had last night off so i went to be early 3.00am. didnt fall asleep until 10.30 then slept thru my alarm and woke up at 5.30pm. i was pissed. resumes going out tommorow for a new job.
Much better mood today.
225x8!!!!!!!!! 235 for 3 paused singles, first 2 were STRONG. 250x2
iso rows couple sets
Think im forgetting some things??
Bench was sweet today! 135 even felt heavy, as did 185. I figured i'd play it safe and get a spotter for 225 because of how heavy 185 felt. First 2 reps were heavy then bam, got in a perfect groove and just kept going. 8 wasn't even 100%failor.
squats and deads
squats barxcouple felt heavy lol 135xcouple 185x3 225x5 275x4!deep as fook 245x5
deads went up to 365x1 i lostmy deadlift form:( back to doing speed deads, maybe twice a week.
Was talking to a guy today and he was telling me about his freind, said he was 146 and could dead 550. At first i was skeptical but i asked his name and i lifted in a meet 2-3 years ago with his freind. Back then he was 150ish with over 500 dead so i completely beleived him after that.
back to training 'normal' in ~1 week.
oh, and the squats were w/out suit bottoms
09-27-2004, 12:36 PM
Nice work on the squats, bro. Is that comic a hint of things to come??
PS - I hit 505 on deads this weekend ... your 513 is in my sights. :D
My 513 is still the king though. Especially cause i weighed 178 when i did it;)
Comic made me lol so i figured i'd post it.
well, i was pissed at my car with all of its problems for too long. Today i went out and bought a 2001 kia sephia. You might be saying to yourself, 'That car sucks!' and i agree:) It was 4900 canadian and only had 68,000km's (45,000miles), so i still got some warranty and i have it financed out to 135/month for 48months. My father bought the lumina from me for just over 1300(i owed him 1700) So now im paying 135/month for a pretty new car, i like this.
bench different bar today, pointers on little rings ~4"from smooth 225x8WTF! 225x5 singles paused and fast
skulls 70x12,12,12 Got easier as the sets progressed
db rows 115x8,8
Whoa! I've always been pretty weak with the 'wider' grip but that wasnt the problem today. Everything up to 185 felt really, really heavy.
No more sleeved shirts while working out! Wore one today and it wasn't hot for the first 20mins, then after bench the heat hit. Cut the workout shorter then planned cause of the heat/sweat.
weight 185.5 Been that weight for 4 workouts.
A pic of the new beast lol
thats not 'my' car but same model and color
had the phychological today and it was :boring:
Heard theres an opening at gnc so im going to stopin there tomorrow, i want free supps;)
And i bought another 15boxes of nitrotech bars. 12$ a box so i couldnt refuse:D
09-30-2004, 09:13 PM
Nice set of Skulls Bro!! :thumbup:
squats 275x1fast!!!!! 315x2
deads alot of sets in the 1-4 rep range with 225, im getting my form back
Buddy benched 315 today so i had to beat him. So what if it was an easier lift;)
Finally slept good last night! Felt great today. 12 hours sleep, but the last few weeks has been 4-5 hours a night.
and they were no siut or wraps, the squats and deads.
bench 4'' from smooth 225x1 245x1 255x3! 265x1! 225x4 then failed 5th lol
iso row 4pps 3 sets highlight was 8reps
bench felt strong today from doing the empty bar all the way up to the 265. The 225 set i was going as fast as possible and misgroved the 5th rep.
and diets still pretty ****ty(probly 1700-2000cals/day) and sleep is still horible. I really hope i get the job at gnc.
grip machine ~3 sets, highlight 4plates for 10
serratus extensions on bench machine 2 sets. These really felt good.
Tomorrow i get to go to court to fight my 25 month old speeding ticket
10-03-2004, 05:42 PM
lol, pay the fine you cheap ass!
10-03-2004, 06:55 PM
25 months old?
well, the original court date was for 11months after the ticket, which is still long. Then 2-3days before that date i had my accident so it got postponed again. I'm just hoping the cop won't show up now.
Skinny - I'd just pay the fine now but a cop i know said i have to go since i pleaded not guilty, at the time of pleade i didnt have much money and was in shool. now i have a day of lost wages and i have to travel to antigonish(2.5hours) to fight it.
lost the fight w/the ticket.
Now cause of that i've got 2 days of missed work, 100$ of gas, insurance rises, and ticket was almost $400. And to top it off my licence is suspended for a week.
Got my ETS on monday but im going to wait until things are sorted out before i use it.
My **** sleep cycle continues. ****in 5 hours a night.
was going to gym it tomorrow but i didn't start to recover yet from friday. Back and tits still hurt. Today was almost 2,000cals.
10-05-2004, 05:18 AM
That sucks bro. :(
Damn, the bad things like to pile on all at once don't they? Suck it up and fight through man.
squats 265x3,3,3 all rock bottom and strong reps
deads 225x3,3,3 still working on form....again:(
good ams off pin3 275x2 Felt tough, but a good tough
well, im still getting fatter AND losing some weight. Not good.
By saturday i should be back on my ****ed sleep patern, but getting 7-8 hours a night.... well a day i guess lol
gnc's looking good for me getting hired. More money, less hours, enjoyable work, what else could i ask:D
^^ And then life decides not to bite you so hard in the ass, so it slackens it's jaws..... a little.

10-07-2004, 08:08 PM
Crazy DB rows. Real nice work. :thumbup:
thanks pruneman. I was suprisingly strong on these today, i liked it though;)

No credit for it but it would still look good on the resume.

Started takin ETS yesterday. I woke up this morning with only 5 hours sleep but it felt like 9. I slept untill 8 hours but it was tough, i felt too refreshed. Im not sure if this is a coincidence or ets?
No other side effects/benefits yet.
bench 225x1,1 255x1 270x1! 280x1!!!
skulls 80x5hamstring cramp, 8?
Weights felt heavy today but i felt strong:D 280 went a bit out of groove too, towards neck a bit.
BW 184 and fat:(
good am's off pin3 with lights chocked on DBs 225x1 275xmiss,miss,1 285x1 300xmiss,miss
deads ~10singles with 225
wide grip sldl 225x10
good am's were pretty cool today. 225 felt relatively heavy so i stuck on a 25a side. first 2 trys at 275 i moved it ~10". It pissed me off that i could move it and not complete the rep, i gave it another go this time i did my pre-good am ritual(its weird, i look like im having a seizer:D) Then did it 'easy'. after that i was going to call it a day then i said **** it and went 285. Felt like 99%ME. After i got that i went 300 but my body was completely shot.
sldl with wide grip were fun, really felt it in my rear delts.
Doms is unreal right now, the quicker i get it the better though, and thats with 4 hours sleep last night.
My mood is really good right now, ill have to ask chris or dan if its related to ets.
speed bench 135x3x3x3grips/reps 185 for a fast,paused single 225 for a really fast ipf paused single, closegrip too
skulls 70x12,12,10 ran outta gas
db press 20x20,20
iso row reg.grip 4ppsx6 wide 3ppsx8 reg. 3ppsx12,12
3 sets of internal and external rotations
only took 55-60, mins to do.
Bench felt ver6y fast today, especially the 225, it was like....quick:D
internal/external rotations pump and bi's and tri's like noones buisness. DB swings make my veins go all cool:cool:
squats no suit no bands, raw, 185x8 doubles Great speed 235x2 same
DeAdZ 225x3,3 275x1 315x1 365x1 405x1 425x1 Found my form:cool:
good ams pin3 255x5
Legs were sore after squats, mainly the quads. Bi isertation point was quite soar by end of workout, must've hurt it doing deads.
But, found my dead form so im happy:D
For reference: bar ~2" from tibia, touches shin when i bend over.
Forgot to add. My rotators had wicked doms the last 2 days. Feels different but cool
ETS effect - Most people have reduced doms, i have increased doms but it comes quicker and leaves a ton quicker. Usually if my diets going great with a surplus of cals this same effect happens, so i can say this does in fact speed up my recovery.
2 board press pointers ~3" from smooth 225x3 easy 240x3same 275x3 went up;)
lockouts pin3 225x1 275x1 315x1 325x1 335x1 345xnot even close

deads off platform with MD 225x3,3,3,3
good am's off pin3 295x3 315x2
Holy spinal erectors! Back was fried by that point

Good job on those squats/ deads! :thumbup:
10-20-2004, 06:18 AM
you cuttin or bulking bro?? whats the weight at now?
Weight is at 188! i feel like a tank! look like a whale though:(
im back to doing my cut/bulk:D basicly hasve my cals a bit lower then amr for my meals except around workout where i jack them up.
Last time i put on muscle while simultanuosly(sp??) losing fat. My weight slowly increased while getting leaner, i loved it.
speed bench 140x3x3x3 190xsingle the 190 was good, 140 felt slugish
db press 20x20,20
db rows 110x10,10
rotator internal 45x20,20 external 15x20,20
Ummm, im tempted to say this workout sucked but i liked the db rows. Joints felt like **** today and bicep insertation was ****in soar on left arm and a little soar on the right. I must've been low on liquids cause i only weighed 186:omg:
10-21-2004, 05:21 PM
Allison ... she's from my hometown, went to school with my gf. I saw her compete a few years ago, pretty good at what she does. http://www.allisonethier.com/
speedy squats 8 doubles@205 and a really good double @255 no bands
deads 225x3 225x1 275x1 315x1 365x1
zerchers 275x1 315x1 355x5!!!! 385x3!!!!!!!!!!!! Wow!!
Speed squats were ace. I was really really fast, even 255 was very quick.
zerchers:omg: Old pr was 385. I was really good today at getting focused/pysched up. Like the good ol' days;)
10-23-2004, 06:14 AM
nice job on the zerchers, I just started them so hopefully I'll catch up! they feel awesome on the legs.. how long are you taking between sets?
it varies alot on the day for me, for ex. speed sets i only rest 20-40secs, ME reps are done 3mins apart, and regular sets the rest is usually 2mins for an isolation movement and 3-5 mins for a compound.
lockouts off pin2(1-2"off chest) wide power grip 3"from smooth 185xeasy 255xheavy? 245x1 265x1 275x1 280xnot a chance
reg bench with powergrip went up to 250 for a very quick single
db press 25x20,20,20,20
iso row widegrip 3ppsx12 3.5ppsx12 3.5+10ppsx8
few sets for the rotator
Strong workout again today! I like getting sleep and a good amount of cals.
Girl at the gym today was doing db presses with the 35's easy, i was impressed
10-26-2004, 05:48 AM
i can do the 35's pretty easy as well, are you impressed?
You can too?! I thought you were still working on the pink ones;)
zerchers 315x1 tough 365x1 very tough 385x1 It went 405x1:cool: Yup, 405 zercher:D
deads 225x3,3 275x1 315x1 365x1
good ams off pin3 225x8,8 high reps suck
my lower back was soooo dead by the end of this workout, it was awesome!
i told myself i had to do 405 on zerchers so it was a very very long rep, multiple times i stalled on the way up. Didn't feel heavy on the arms at all.
next sat = me lifting heavy ****
10-27-2004, 06:20 AM
Congrats on the 405! I might finally give these a try on Friday. :D
10-27-2004, 07:10 AM
I upgraded from the pink ones last week silly... remember? I said I was gonna go balls to the wall and picked up them 35's
Anthony - if you think you can do more than 405......don't. You'll get injured;)
ryuage - I forgot that you manhandled the pinks last week. Deadlifting the 35lbs db's is very tough:D
on another note, i think i got myself a supplier! now i just need some money and im all set:clap:
10-27-2004, 11:53 AM
supplier.... forrrrr??? is it what I think it is? hehe
I'm going all hardcore, selling the hard to get stuff.
as some might call it creatine and protein:p
10-27-2004, 06:02 PM
uh huh... :) I got my bands in today.. woohoo...
10-27-2004, 06:22 PM
Injured??? Never! I've never done them before and I'm not sure how they'll feel on my tendons, but I'd be happy with 400+. :D Wouldn't that be funny if I managed more than you on my first day of doing them??
it would not be funny and it will not happen.
you cannot zercher 4pps.
repeat that to yourself before trying, i wanna have at least one good lift:p
speed bench 9 triples@135 powergrip, fast!

if you say so :( workout in an hour... so we'll see
grrrrrr, meets cancelled. well, sorta. The ferry to go there is cancelled for 3 days cause of the weather and to drive there would be ridiculouse, like 25hours compared to a 6hour ferry.
well, more money for me i guess?
One good thing comes from all this ****
Got an interview tomorow morning for a new job, its suppose to pay $10.00/hour so it kicks my jobs but.(6 ****in 50)
It would be as a floor walker, not the most enjoyable job, but not backshift!!
Well, interview didnt go good, they were looking for a sales person and i wanted the floorwalker.
So, i had some time to kill and decided to go to the gym
Didn't feel too strong today.

all i can say for today is wow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
the 365 was right at parrelel, it pissed me off cause i didnt go too deep. So i buried the 375. the 390 was laughable:D
11-06-2004, 03:46 PM
what about the job at gnc
The guy thats leaving is going in the beggining on january. Its still looking good though.
Forgot to add before, my form on squats today was buetiful;) I kept a HUGE arch in my back for the whole rom and knees were way out, i went so low i felt the side of my legs squishy my side of my obliques
11-06-2004, 04:53 PM

The job i got called for is min wage 40hours a week but that means i have nights free(now i can try bouncing) and i will have fridays and saturdays off! Right now im making min wage so no difference in that aspect.

Im going to apply to my gym to volunteer. It will be good experiance and could possible lead to a job(i hope:))
went to jui jitsu last night, it was a good workout.
had an onthe phone interview today with another company.
Emailed my resume out to 8-10 places last night looking for work, all 250miles away(400km) Most are for armed gaurds.

went to a college yesterday and liked it, probly going to attend there come feb. It would go till nov.24. Im still going to apply for police academy in may. if i get in that would start jan 2006. Id still have time to graduate from this college. Its a Corrections and Policing course.
Had the job interview today. Went ace. I got the job and 'can' start monday but ill probly wait a week to get **** staightend out. Ill be working 60+ hours a week so my wbb time will be reduced dramiticly.
On the physical part of the interview i aced it. 25 full chins in 30 secs, 40 pushups in 40 secs. I think that helped me alot in gettiing hired on t he spot.
They have a little gym in the office thats open 24hours. Its got the essentials th ough. Powerrack!!!! and a kickass becnh.
So it looks like my life will be ****in hecktic for 2+ years to come. It WILL pay off in t he long run though.
I just have to workout my finances now then it will be confirmed th at im going.
12-03-2004, 05:22 AM
Awesome bro!! I say go for it! 25 chins in 30 seconds is sick!

01-02-2005, 07:10 PM
Nice work on the squats bro. I think I am going to stick with some higher reps for now and avoid the embarassement of my 1RM. :D
high reps = teh suck
I was only going to do a single, that felt easy so i went for 3, they went nice so i aimed for 5, they were tough bastards so i gave 6 a try and got it.
If i knew i could do reps i woulda upped the weight.
high reps make adam pass out (3 or 4 times)
bench 95x8 didn't feel right 135x3 ouch 185x1 OUCH 225x1 oh ****, left elbow was screaming at me
iso bench 2ppsx11,11 2pps+10x4 these didn't bother him
My elbow(s) hurt like a mofo. Multiple reasons. I ran outta msm, not enough sleep and liquid intake was up to par.
I'll be making my order tonight for 2lbs of msm and microlactin. I still have glucosamine left.
weight 183, i spotted a vein poking out of my vastus medialis:D
I had him before when i was real lean.
im going to have to lower my ephedrine doses. I did some expiraments and they are a big problem with my overheating problem.
fyi i was taking 48mg's in the morning. I'll just try spacing the doses to see if that fixes the probleem.
cardio 1.5 firstname.lastname@example.org
wow, im outta shape! lol
I don't know how, but pullovers totally killed my traps. I'm talking the worst doms in at least 6months.
sunday deads. tomorrow deads. Saturday deads.
Im a deadaholic lol
weight 183 and looking lean:cool:
and....i finalised my residense for next month, and its free;)
I'll be able to afford so much chicken and protein and have so much rest/no stress i better be huge in ripped soon. haha
bench today if my elbow holds up
01-07-2005, 09:52 AM
I'll be able to afford so much chicken and protein and have so much rest/no stress i better be huge in ripped soon

nice squats and deads, f00.
Screw getting crates, I'll get the whole pallet! lol

probly going to stick on the suit, and if i think to.....the belt:omg:
and the elbows were nice to me today. I've been drinking my joint formula stuff and it helped alot.
01-08-2005, 01:06 PM

I'll be able to afford so much chicken and protein and have so much rest/no stress i better be huge in ripped soon. haha
Can I come over and raid your fridge? :help:
Nice work. Are you serious about the reps making you pass out!?
01-08-2005, 05:08 PM
Great bench workout!
Tim - you can raid my fridge, just not my freezer, thats where i keep the chicken and bars.
TTT - Its not so much that high reps make me passout, its more a factor of not breathing correctly(im only used to doing under 6reps) and i have a very very good ability to strain. Like on a heavy set i don't feel pain, tired ness, or anything. So by the time 20reps come my body should tell me to quit but it doesn't.(well, i don't listen to it:p)
themachine - thanks
squats barx10 135x8 225x5 275x3straps up 315x2belt 385x2 385x1 all were done with suit
385 for 2, first one was dead on parrellel and then i got vicous(and let a little language out:angel: ) and sunk the second one
385 single was at parrelel again, i was going to sink it but once i hit parellel i knew any lower would cause me to dump it.
01-08-2005, 06:09 PM
Damn fine squatting! Did you do any assistance work too?
Not today, i ran outta time. I woulda done some deads(~275) and good ams followed by abs but i only had an hour and i was squattin with 3 guys and helping on forum with a guy benching and spottin everyone. I'll be in monday though for speed squats speed deads and assistance ****.

after pullovers i sat down on the seated bench, i bent forward to adjust the seat(its underneath me) and wham! back went:(
needed help getting up then i couldnt walk. I sat back down for 15mins and then i could barely walk/waddle.
Now its 5 hours later and im stuck in the computer chair.... and i gotta piss! What to do? *Looks for bucket* lol
Well, its the next day and my back is still being a bitch, a nicer one though.
I wa going to do cardio today but i cant walk. this is the longest ive had an injury, ive increased my cals and protein so i can get fixed quicker. Also slep for 11 hours but it was the worse sleep ever, feels like i slept for 20mins.

Great lifts Adam! What kind of pl'ing routine are you doing?
right now im doing a bastardized westside split. 'usually' its cardio/weights/cardio/weights etc and i lift using the me/de method. Im moving in a few weeks so my life will get alot easier and i can go back to doing full westside.
i was going to do my walk but i figured that it may somehow aggrevate the back. sooooo...
level 10 30mins@85-105rpm heartrate was 170-175
i did a 'sprint' at the end and i hit 124rpm
weight 184, looking a bit bigger/leaner too.
I had a bunch of peeps asking me to check there form today doing lifts(when i was volunteering) it made the day better.
Sorry to hear about your back. That's weird that it happened after you'd done your lifts, is that common?
Oh well, hope you're back in top form soon.
I don't know if its common for the general public, but for me its always the way i hurt myself. Just this time was alot worse then the others.
I've pulled my pec twice, once doing squats and once on deads lol

i was goin squat today but ran outta time. I'll get them on ~wednesday. Good ams were 555 at lockout! I saw new shades of red today lol
The deads pleased me too.
I just saw this post at anoth board and liked it so i thought i would post it.
"First off, I use a bench shirt in competition and yes it is very awkward. I was used to benching a certain way, and once I started benching in the shirt, it's as if I had to learn a whole new method of benching. If you really think about it, the bench press is not really a true "bench press" anymore. First off, you need strong lats to lower the weight in a controlled manner, then all you need to do is touch the bar to your upper abs, then the shirt acts as a spring at the bottom of the lift from the chest to the half way point, and then you need strong shoulders to stabilize the weight, and strong triceps to actually lock it out. So a powerlifting bench press really isn't a test of chest strength anymore; it's all about how well you have mastered your bench shirt. Unfortunately bench shirts are used in pretty much every federation these days, including those bloddy triple ply custom fit demin shirts in a few. Personally, I'm against the bench shirts. However, since all my competitors are using them, I am as well. If you are a competitive powerlifter, I would say yes to getting a bench shirt, simply for the fact that they are legal and everyone uses them. If you just bench press to work your chest and gain size and muscle mass, then I'd say no to a bench shirt."
and i got a vid of the good am's so you can see me struggle with a plate a side;)
If i can i'll stick it up tomorrow.(im at work now)
I've got the good ams on the other comp. I should have it available here soon.

I'm sorry, Adam. I had to intervene.
I am the cheapest drunk ever. I can't drive after 2 beers. Three and I'm risking toilet hugging.
You have been defeated.
