Me bench, got a new shirt so I wanted to give it a run.
Plan was just see if it would work and hit the opener because my arms are a little jacked up and I need to get some rest after being in the shirt for 2 straight weeks
raw dawg warm ups
add 58 jack bencher
655*1>1/2 board> nice clean press
I had to work a little to make this touch but not to bad. I think more weight will help get it down in a better position, I touched a little low here
triceps kick back
done, elbows and forearms are fried. 2 real ones left and time to do some down work and rest up
Just ready for the meet
last week of heavy squats
squat to chains set 2" below parallel
full gear opener
second to chains 1" high
915*miss> ton of issues here. I had a meltdown on this one and acted like an idiot
915*1> slow slow slow
Im over trained! I stopped there after I went out and yaked. Just got to hot and lost my cool
sunday deload shoulder day
machine shoulder press
rear delt dbell rows
curl bar curls 3 sets
done in about 30 mins, nice quick workout.
Your log reads like a carbon copy of mine somedays! "I had a melt down and lost my cool" sounds just like me!
haha. Man 2 weeks ago I took 1005 to dpeth and lost it due to a bad unrack. Now I can unrack 90 less than that, WTF? Im just worn down. Im going to do some light raw squats tonight then a few pulls in my suit just to find the right strap setting. After that Ill do my raw warm ups on the bench and some speed squats Friday. Goal now is to rest keep blood in the muscles and get my weight up.
IM way overtrained, I was going to pull a little bit but decided against it. I may throw the suit on a pull a few light reps to work on form Friday.
ssb squats with bands tied to the front of the mono, all done while holding a kettle bell to mimick the deadlift position
squat mornings on a box, same set up
dbell bent over shrugs, light
did these to really hit my injury hard
chuck v rows with rope
done. Back hams and ass were smoked after the ssb work.
Nothing really heavy, just to close to the meet for anything stupid
incline jm press
rope push downs
Good day, the 405 for 5 wasnt to hard other than the last rep. I just took to long between reps 3 and 4.
one hell of a work out keep it up.....it looks solid and potential Pr's around the corner and subbed
Thanks man, Im trying
I really havent done anything other then pulling the prowler and a little stuff to try and keep some blood in the muscles. I was overtrained to hell so Im hoping by doing very little that I will be recovered and peaked come meet time. Then I get a week off and the torture for wpc worlds begins.
Bombed on the bench, nto surprising, I needed more reps in my bench shirt.
squats at the meet
850*1> smoked. i thought shit today will be a good day. When I picked the bar up I smiled, it felt like nothing on my back
920*miss> handler called me down to 1, and I tried to push back and folded over bad and well my good mornings arent strong enough to do this weight
920*miss again. Felt light again but just started to get really light headed about half way down and the room went dim. I said take it and honestly I was a little lost when we got the bar back in the rack
After the squats I felt like death. I still feel dizzy today, 3 full days later. But after a quick rest it was time to try and get ready to bench
230*2> smashed my hand here
640*miss faught to long to touch and couldnt lock out my left arm.
660*miss, touched much easier and weight bobbled slightly off my chest then flew up. But no lift due to downward movement
660*miss, touched better and smoked but at the top something happened. I have no clue if a spotter bumped it or what but the bar rolled in my hand and I lost it right there. It really didnt surprise me though, counting the meet I have 8 reps in my shirt now. Its groove is similar to my old one but needs to be touched a smidge lower. Back to doing some training tonight and starting full bore Friday. Its so close to clicking I can taste it but Ive got to put it together on meet day.
Sorry things didn't work out like you wanted. On the bright side it seems like you figured some things out so you should have a solid plan leading into worlds.

605x1> half way up my foot slid. did some extensions and curls. Knee was a little sore volume will be up allot more

Im really liking the extra work before I warm up. Im trying to keep building more and more volume as the cycle goes on. Feeling pretty good so far. I may hop in the shirt next week and do some rep sets.
Good shit Mr. Diablo Brown
Well you would know good shit, you are a professional after all. Im just trying to get better.
got in a few reverse hypes and leg extensions to warm up, lost allot of time here putting carpet under the mono lifts, much needed and long overdue.
355*2> barely moved
625*2> depth finally
745x2x5 most were to depth> bar speed was stupid fast here. supposed to go around 795 for 2 reverse band sets but I based my numbers off what I felt good for in my deadlift suit I had been squatting in, the squat suit I have I think Im good for allot more
3x10, each leg
one leg reverse hypers
3 sets ea leg
Not used to being in the gym this long, need to carry a snack to eat while training, had to leave and eat then realized (thanks to Hayes) I forgot to do abs so I had to get them in later. Feeling pretty amped about training overall
Nachos are crucial, id rather see nachos x3 but i wont get picky...
I may have let you down there but I made up for it at Olive Garden with the never ending past bowl
Bench ass day
Thought today would be great after destroying cracker barrel for breakfast but my one Sunday training partner was MIA, mother fucker!
band pressdowns with green 3x15
over head extensions 3x10
dbell overhead press 40's*10*5
3 boards with 180lbs of chains (wanted to use bands but cant unrack without help)
up to 315*10, no hand off
this is when I was pissed, the lack of handouts had kilt my shoulders so I had to really watch it here (past shoulder issues)
rear delt flys
rope curls 3 sets
hammer curls 2 sets
Not a very happy camper at the moment, if I show up to help you on a day we dont train you better have your ass in the gym on the day we do train.
Shit, quick note for self. Youre not 10 weeks out, you only have 8 training weeks left.
605*3*3 in briefs. Used straps since my torn callous'es arent 100% (better safe to wait one more week)
Late start and big group means I didnt get all the work in I needed. Ill make up for it Saturday
band rows standing to bench groove
Goal is to get to the gym early on Wednesday and do some glute stuff and stretch really good
Also going to work on hip flexibility hard for the next 8 weeks
When are you gonna come down at squat with us?
Soon, once im working singles in my gear with heavier weights, maybe first of next month. You tried the phenom out yet?
Me bench night, I havent slept much this week and just felt flat. instead of throwing on the shirt I decided to wait a week and just went through my raw warm ups and stopped there.
band press downs and pull aparts to get warm
70*45> goal is to hit 50 after three weeks of this
dbell tricep ext
Yeah I tried it, forgot to send you an email. I was too big in the chest for me, I got almost nothing out of it.
Well of not for bad luck or breaks life would be to easy. Im def out of worlds now and that sucks but Im very fortunate not to be hurt worse then I am.
Here is what happened. I showed up a little late to the gym and the guys lifting in a few weeks were doing some circa max work. I jumped in because my suit is pretty tight and Im short a few weeks on my training and thought, Ill go suit bottoms some and break it in a little more.
blue bands on all the time
add green and briefs
add suit bottoms
635*oh shit, I felt three pops in my leg right when I got to the box and then my leg shot in and straight out on me. I thought oh fu*k Ive blew everything up. Went to the doc, no xray but got some meds. Well Its not feeling bad now and no bleeding but I dont react well with pain meds. I took them on Saturday and none since and I still feel sick, I just dont react well with them. Seen Donnie t and he worked on it, hes thinking its a severe strain and I will be good to go in a about a month as long as I stay active. Im going to keep squatting although it will be very light and high, and work my way down lower and lower each session. So Im done for Vegas but I will be back first of next year as a full SHW. I will be back stronger, I may try and do a bench meet soon but Ive got to make sure I can get in a good position on the bench, right now I cant. Looks like allot of floor pressing for the time being but for reps.
That sucks db. Good luck rehabbing man!
I got lucky. Just a bad strain. It knocked me out of Vegas but ill be back soon.
