    Squat tomorrow...played some basketball today, got feet/ankles twisted, my rights a lil sore, but it'll be fine. Really need to start doing more cardio, about after 25 mins of straight basketball, I was gasping for air, it was horrible.

    What are your goals? Are you playing any sports competitively? You seem to be doing a ton of stuff without many rest days if I'm reading this correct. You may need to set some goals and stay on track for them. Combining all the cardio and sports with powerlifting sometimes is a recipe for disaster. You also want to make sure you aren't maxing out your bench, squat and deadlift too often. Throw in some variations.

    Goal: Stronger than you (w/o gear)
    Right now I'm just focused on deadlift, 375 -> 445.
    Benching, still looking for a program to start next week.

    No, when I play sports, their just pickup games with my friends. And about the rest days, I don't get any with PE at school. M,Tu,Th,Fri is lifting, and wednesday is called workout wednesday, which we do cardio, agilities, stretching, etc. But I'm not complaining, helps with doms greatly. And about maxing out, which your probably looking at the deadlift, I'm on Coan Phillipi. Other than that, what I posted is maxing out at school, we maxout every 5 weeks. Variations wise, I do alot, box squats with chains...favorite so far.

    Squat Maxouts

    185x5
    225x3
    275x1 (PR tie)
    295x0
    285x0 (both bottom outs)

    So there you have it, still 275.

    Edit
    Total so far: 615 @ 160(avg)
    Deadlift tomorrow, and goal is 405+, might have some grip issues from punching the bar today...

    Try some different variations of benching, like incline and decline, and maybe some overhead pressing. That could help your bench a lot.

    Alright, I'll add those in, my "upper chest" and front delts are really lagging, which maybe the key.

    Dude you've got some strength. Keep it up. Hopefully my deadlifts can somewhat catch up to yours within a few months as I am just starting up again with newbie gains.

    Thanks. Better keep hoping, my deadlift will be in the mid 400s in a few months, if I dont get injured. GL with your goals, and what is your deadlift currently at?

    Deadlift: 375, still.

    As of now, I'm done with powerlifting. Going heavy all the time has taken it's toll on me. There's too many things to list, but I'm gonna need a break. My focus is now going to be more sport related. I've came up with a new 10-week cycle, so we'll see how it goes(posted below). No more straight bar deadlift for me....

    "Walls Cycle"

    Week 1
    5x5 (same weight)

    Week 2
    4x5
    1x4 (sw + 5)

    Week 3
    3x5
    1x4 (sw + 5)
    1x3 (sw + 10)

    Week 4
    2x5
    1x4 (sw + 5)
    1x3 (sw + 10)
    1x2 (sw + 15)

    Week 5
    1x5
    1x4 (sw + 5)
    1x3 (sw + 10)
    1x2 (sw + 15)
    1x1 (sw + 20)

    Week 6 - Week 10
    ^ Week 5 // ^ Week 1

    I'll be using this on bench, deadlift/squat.

    Routine

    Upper/Lower

    Upper (day 1)

    Bench (cycle)
    Ghetto T-Bar Row - 3x8
    Incline - 4x8

    UR Rows - 3x8
    Cbl Pressdown - 2x8
    Curls - 4x8
    Shrugs - 5x68

    Lower (day 2)

    Squats/Deadlift (cycle)
    Leg Extension - 3x8
    Leg Curl - 4x8
    Calves - 5x12
    Obliques/Abs - 3x10

    5 piece's reeces

    Water
    1125AM : 30 oz

    Lunch: (102PM)

    2.5 cups milk
    2 pieces of bread
    1 porkchop
    1 piece of cheese
    0.5 serving a ketchup
    Rd 2(932PM)
    2 cups milk
    2 bratwurst

    Bad stuff
    Diet Coke (730PM)
    7 reeces (823PM)(13 total today)

    Workout (so much for no weights)(12:20 PM)(bunch of random stuff)

    I stood like I was going to deadlift, but the weight was at one end. I grabbed the end of the bar with the weight on it, pulled up to my stomach, and then extended out. I really felt it in my lateral delt, and lats.


    I'm loving this 3 day deload, I really needed it. Then come thursday, chest/tri. I'm ready to start the new cycle and see how that goes.

    I like the title of your journal, I'll be keeping an eye on your journal.

    Before you go to train everyday, think about the less fortunate and what they would give to just have the opportunity to be training like a madman.
