Great progress in only 3 months Stump...
Looks like you have good genes to already be pushing these weights...

Looking forward to your Squats once you post them..
Squats and DLs are the key.. as I'm sure you have already seen on WBB

looking good only thing i could suggest would be to track cals. you have made great progress and congrats but now your weight is down i think this will help greatly in keeping muscle and cutting fat if you track your cals.

For your deadlifts, did you use an over under grip? that is the best way to grip it when going heavy. If you do and grip still hurting, go to home depot and buy some pvc and make a wrist roller and work that into your workout.

it looks like your coming up to 2 weeks cutting if im not wrong and you havnt lost anything yet. your workouts are good however if your not tracking your cals exact and you no you are blow maintanance then how are you going to loose weight. also creating a calorie deficit without knowing how much of a deficit is asking to loose lbm in my opinion. i would say dnt be lazy(no offense intended) track your cals either counting on the back of products or fitday. i dnt actaully like fitday as being in the uk the measurements are different. Also this is a problem i had when i started training i wish i had always tracked my cals. just my opinion tho

gloves are a no no, kept sliping and was fed up.


I've tried the gloves and straps and just found it was always lacking as soon as I got to 315. My grip really does suck so the only thing I've found that works is alternating grip and chalk. It's one of the few things I use chalk for since my gym discourages it's use but it's worth it.

I'm really impressed with what you've done so far. So hard to believe you started at 270/280 at only 16 years old and 5' 7"! All the best on getting leaner, stronger and adding a ton of muscle.

thanks man, i wanted it so bad, it gives off so many looks in the gym with 4pps haha.

I agree with what's been said earlier. If you really want to go for a max, then after 315 go for singles up to 405. Such as 365x1 and 385x1 then the 405x1 or more. I think you can totally nail the 405 but you are likely using up most of your strength before you even get there. And yes, it's very cool to get the 4pps. :cool:



would you guys consider my numbers decent for someone with my age and stuff? i dont know i sometimes get frustrated.

Don't be frustrated, you're numbers are definitely inline given your age, length of time you've been working and how much cutting you've done. Nothing is typical in this game as long as you are seeing improvements than keep at it. You're doing great, keep it up.

50 x 7 Now im really pissed

Thats it, the rest of the time i was doing leg stuff to get blood flowing, im done with the 20 rep squats, it made me really mess up my legs.

Now, i think im changing my routine, again, to a powerlifting olympic routine. ATF squats(learned how), speed bench, speed dead, clean and jerk, you know.

can anyone help me with this? i had an idea

Monday - Speed Bench, ATF Squat, Dips or chins
Wednesday - Speed Dead, Tbar row, Hise shrug SS
Friday - Heavy Bench, ATF Squat, BB row

something like this, then like the next week do heavy deads and rotate.

i hear you man, but the powerlifting always has sparked my attention.

WBBIRL
01-02-2006, 08:25 PM
Its like this... or so I think.

When you body build you effectifly add more lean muscle mass by training in the hypertrophy range and eating correctly. When you feel you have a decent ammount of LBM built up then you work on your motor unit recruitment. The average person only uses about 50% or less of his or her potential strength. By training in the low rep high weight low volume ( I think ?? on the volume) you are effectively training your muscles to well use more of your muscles when you perform that particular lift. Which is why your #'s in the gym could go up a whole lot but you dont feel that strength gain out on a football field.

So it seems to me its more of something you have to ask yourself, Do you have a decent ammount of LBM and now need to work on motor recuritment or do you need more mass first. It would seem once you platue on powerlifting the easiest thing to do would be increase LBM.

Stumprrp
01-03-2006, 04:47 AM
Hmm, sounds right to me, i have a good amount of LBM but im also not done cutting, i still got a good 20-25 more lbs to go. we will see.

Things look good. Nice work on your squats!

I agree with what's been said earlier. If you really want to go for a max, then after 315 go for singles up to 405. Such as 365x1 and 385x1 then the 405x1 or more. I think you can totally nail the 405 but you are likely using up most of your strength before you even get there. And yes, it's very cool to get the 4pps. :cool:I agree w. this. You would have had 405 if you had done a proper warm-up.

Powerlifting isn't about the lifts you do. Its wrather how you do them... high weight for minimal reps. Trains your muscles to recurite more of the fibers to perform the lift.

it looks like your coming up to 2 weeks cutting if im not wrong and you havnt lost anything yet. your workouts are good however if your not tracking your cals exact and you no you are blow maintanance then how are you going to loose weight. also creating a calorie deficit without knowing how much of a deficit is asking to loose lbm in my opinion. i would say dnt be lazy(no offense intended) track your cals either counting on the back of products or fitday. i dnt actaully like fitday as being in the uk the measurements are different. Also this is a problem i had when i started training i wish i had always tracked my cals. just my opinion tho

Some good advice above. If you are not seeing the results, then you need a different plan.

Some advice

1) Change the types of food you eat... One really bad meal a day can screw you over royally. Eat good, all the time. Lean Protiens, healthy fats and plenty of veggies and fruit. If you have little of that, you doomed to failure.

2) Change the ammount you eat. You could be eating too little... But chances are you are just eating too much and probably of the wrong type of food.

As others have mentioned, create a log of your food intake for a week to get a feel for how many calories you ingest and from what food... You don't have to track everyday, but you do need to track once in a while so that you know the "range" you are in.

I hope you succeed. Most of cutting is done in the kitchen, not in the workout room. You need both, but proper nutrician is the most important thing when either bulking up or cutting down.

What you're doing is ace and really is no need to rush things, just be patient with it and make gradual gains...245 on the flat bench is excellent, especially doing it so soon in your training.

Wannabelean
01-13-2006, 05:51 AM
Great work man, you are one strong little used to be fat bastard.

You might be able to add some weight to your bench by perfecting your form. Do you arch your back and squeeze your shoulder blades together on the bench, etc..?? It's hard to add strength while losing fat sometimes so I would just be patient if you can't tweak some extra weight or reps from your form.

Ahhhh the benchpress. If your at a standstill speed benching and board work can really blast through a rut. Do you have a bad sticking point? or maybe your speed isnt as fast as it could be. Also switching to some real heavy closegrips has helped me in the past for getting through ruts.

Its pathetic really, im so sick of seeing these a$$holes in the gym pounding out high upperbody weight and never do a lower body workout.

Thats the reason i deadlifted, i said to my friend im going to show these faggots how to lift, one kid that was big and cocky looking once again said can your friend really deadlift that (315) and he said no hes military pressing it. Approched it casually and did it for 5. fun day at the YMCA home of benching curls and abs.

And lastly, theres a confession, im so stupid, but unfortunatly ive always been doing what i though was a deadlift, but its a FORKING rack pull, what the heck, but the good thing is on the floor feels better and i can do the same weight with it.

SpecialK
01-23-2006, 08:17 PM
As far as the gym not 'allowing' something - pay close attention to see how closely the rules are enforced. At a gym at my old school, you supposedly couldn't remove a bar from the power rack to perform deads or lunges, yet I did it all the time and no one ever said anything. You weren't supposed to use chalk either, but I know people there (including me) did, because you would always see the chalk dust on the bars and plates.

Chalk makes a world of difference on deads.

I would definitely do deads first in the workout. They are such a big movement that I pretty much have to.
