Because Brian said it was a good idea to post this here, This is just a copy of mine at supertraining.com, so it's the same thing obviously for whoever reads that.
My next meet is still going to be raw full-power, so that is what I am focusing on. I'm trying to learn a bench shirt and once in...

I havent checked my weight in a few weeks, but Im guessing im around 215# 6'-1". Im definitely more of a bench guy, but my deadlift isnt that embarrassing, squat is...
I did a meet this weekend, so I'll start my log with that. I train in my garage with other lifters that I coach. I basically steal ideas from Westside and Super Training (even have the same training days as them) and add things to it based on our weaknesses. We video all of our workouts, and...

Training for the 2010 USAPL PA States most likely.
Typically follow a Westside-style routine to increase GPP and to increase raw lifts immediately following a meet. Then start to increase intensity on lifts that will help the equipped 3 lifts. Then peak with a modified Sheiko CMS/MS routine. ...
Alright guys so ive decided to keep this journal to remind myself of my goals and keep on track to achieve them. I will update this after every workout with my lifts and whatnot. Lemme know if im doing it right cause ive never done this before haha.
Ive been lifting for 1.5 years, have put on...
So, yesterday i started training westside. i'm definetely still learning and reading. i don't go to school or work right now, so i'm hoping to progress fairly quick, learn, and see some decent strength gains. i'll post my weight and height later tonight, after i weigh myself at the gym. yesterday i...
Well then... i have to keep a journal somewhere... and at this point i cant even tell if my posts on the other forum are even there... so i'll start a temporary journal here. Might just turn into a permanent one. It was either here or at Pendlay forum, and though i AM a weightlifter before i am a...
Beginning a new log, kind of a bad time because I am feeling beat up at the moment and will look to deload in a couple of weeks but oh well. Current supplements are Results,Protein,Fish oil and Flax seed oil. I was involved in powerlifting about 12-15 years ago and stepped away due to life and kids...

It's been a while since I posted last. After my last contest on April 28th I took 2 weeks off training and diet to let me body and mind rest and relax from the 6 months of contest prep. If you read my contest journal you know I had a great showing at my last contest and looked the best I have ever...
Alright so I'm starting a new journal because my training has moved to a whole other level this past year my old journal had some newbie workouts in it clear back from when I was in high school haha.
I am Currently on west side for skinny bastardsV.3 slightly modified to more advanced to...
Hey Guys, Im new to the forum but thought I'd start posting my log here. I'll post a few weeks back of bench workouts just so you can see where I'm comming from. I normally train at Westside Barbell, although for the last month or so I haven't been able to train there because of some schedule...
July 16th, 2007
I've been reading this website on and off for little over two months while trying to achieve something that everyone wants. Muscle, Mass, and Strength. Today, I finally got around to writing a journal and yes, I have never posted before. I always just researched what I needed and...
Hoping to go 2500 before this year is out.
So the new log begins...
With new goals and a fresh training regime I figured it was a good time to make a fresh start with the journal too.
Recently I cut weight to get back into the 83kg (183lbs) class and am now sitting at that mark with the goal to be to cut the body...

I've been working out since Septermber, 2003 . My progress has been decent; more than doubling the weight I lift as of July 2004. I still however am nowhere near the level of strength I want to (and have to) be. So this journal will hopefully bring in other's insight and recommendations, which will...
Just deleted all of the about me cause it always changes, check out my facebook if you want more info.
TODAY: Today we maxed on Bench, Pullups, and Hang Clean. I started off cold with pullups with palms out shoulder width grip and got 13, fresh off is when i can do the most pullups, and I do...
I finally got a new gym membership and I'm back in business, so its time to get busy. I figured it warranted a new journal. This was today:
Pretty new to this forum. I've spent the last 3 or so years working out, the first 18 months or so pretty regularly, got my strength up to a decent point. Last 18 months I trained maybe 2x/week, switched routines a bunch of times, rehabbed a couple of niggling little injuries, and...
I often get asked how I train. I train very much based on how I feel, so that is a hard question to answer sometimes. I do have set days but my actual workouts very. If I have a competition coming up I have my way of peaking, but even that changes. It will change from meet to meet, as I change, my...
New guy here, thought I'd introduce myself and get a log going.
I'm an amateur raw powerlifter... done three meets so far, and my meet PRs are 455, 270, and 500. Those were all from October 2011-January 2012... I haven't done a competition since then, for some pretty poor reasons. ...

Hey everyone, I'm getting back into lifting after a very long time off. I'm looking forward to losing some fat, gaining some muscle, and getting as powerful as possible. I feel like I could lose 20 lbs of fat and be pretty lean. I'd like to gain about that much muscle mass, so I'd like to stay...
I figured I'll start up my journal over here as well. Like to have a backup and one of the forums I used to have my journal is no more. Also, this is a perfect time as I'm more or less starting over from a year off from any kind of consistent or serious training after having a lot of life changing...
I hired Alex Viada on here to get my strength in the big 3 up over the next several months. From there, I want to lean out while maintaining that strength then transition into BB mode. I would like to hit 3/4/5 for reps before leaning out. But the biggest thing is I want to KEEP that strength,...
